      Hare Krishna Friends,

          TEXT 12

      Bhagavad-Gita Sanskrit Shaloka [Chapter: 1 - Verse 12]
                                        tasya sanjanayan harsam
                                         kuru-vrddhah pitamahah
                                        simha-nadam vinadyoccaih
                                     sankham dadhmau pratapavan

                                                    SYNONYMS

      tasya--his; sanjanayan--increasing; harsam--cheerfulness; kuru-vrddhah--the grandsire of the Kuru dynasty (Bhisma); pitamahah--the
      grandfather; simha-nadam--roaring sound, like a lion; vinadya--vibrating; uccaih--very loudly; sankham--conchshell; dadhmau--blew;
      pratapa-van--the valiant.

                                                   TRANSLATION

      Then Bhisma, the great valiant grandsire of the Kuru dynasty, the grandfather of the fighters, blew his conchshell very loudly, like the
      sound of a lion, giving Duryodhana joy.

                                                       PURPORT

      The grandsire of the Kuru dynasty could understand the inner meaning of the heart of his grandson Duryodhana, and out of his natural compassion
      for him he tried to cheer him by blowing his conchshell very loudly, befitting his position as a lion. Indirectly, by the symbolism of the conchshell, he informed his depressed grandson Duryodhana that he had no chance of victory in the battle, because the Supreme Lord Krsna was on the other side. But still, it was his duty to conduct the fight, and no pains would be spared in that connection.
