Kurukshetra Dharmashetra - Shri Krishna - Ch. 41

On the battlefield of Kurukshetra, the Kauravas’ and the Pandavas’ army were confronting each other. Dhritrashtra was sad as Arjun was asked to prepare for the war. Before starting the war, Yudhishthir first of all took Bhisma Pitamah’s blessings, then Guru Dronacharya,

Kripacharya and uncle Shalya’s blessings as well, then he returned to his own side. Draupadi, still furious at the insult dealt her by the Kauravas, wanted revenge, and so was waiting for the war to start. Just then she heard the sound of the conch shell from the Pandavas’ side, announcing the beginning of the war.

"Yudhishthir first of all took Bhisma Pitamah’s blessings, then Guru Dronacharya, Kripacharya and uncle Shalya’s blessings as well, then he returned to his own side."

A fierce battle was being fought between the Kauravas and Pandavas. Another fierce battle was fought between Ashwathama from the Kauravas’ side and Bhimsen from the Pandavas’ side, all at Kurukshetra. Yet another fight was going on between Bhisma Pitamah and Abhimanyu. Pitamah slaughtered the Pandavas’ army but Arjun was hesitant to aim his arrows at Bhisma Pitamah. 

Here, from the Kauravas side, Shalya and Prince Uttar from Pandavas’ side were fighting. Prince Uttar attained veergati (the attainment of heaven that a warrior slain in battle receives). Shakuni spoke to Duryodhan against Bhisma Pitamah. Lord Shiva explained to Parvati the definition of religious war and irreligious war.

Dhritrashtra and Gandhari were upset on hearing the description of war from Sanjay. The Pandavas were very sad at the death of Prince Uttar, and consoled King Viraat. Pandavas were planning their strategy for the next day of war at kurukshetra.

"Prince Uttar attained veergati (the attainment of heaven that a warrior slain in battle receives). Shakuni spoke to Duryodhan against Bhisma Pitamah. Lord Shiva explained to Parvati the definition of religious war and irreligious war. Dhritrashtra and Gandhari were upset on hearing the description of war from Sanjay."

From the Kauravas’ side, Bhisma Pitamah, Guru Dronacharya and Kripacharya were discussing their own strategies for the war. On the second day, a fierce battle was fought between Arjun and Bhisma Pitamah. Bhisma Pitamah could not defeat Arjun.

Bhimsen frightened the Kauravas’ army with his skill in mace fighting. Dhritrashtra and Gandhari were ever more distressed with the news of the war. Gandhari was so upset that she did not want to know anything more about it. At sunset, armistice was declared and Arjun went to meet Bhisma Pitamah in his camp.

"On the second day, a fierce battle was fought between Arjun and Bhisma Pitamah. Bhisma Pitamah could not defeat Arjun."
