      Hare Krishna Friends,
      Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized


                                                                   TEXT 32


                                       yadrcchaya copapannam
                                       svarga-dvaram apavrtam
                                      sukhinah ksatriyah partha
                                      labhante yuddham idrsam


      yadrcchaya--by its own accord; ca--also; upapannam--arrived at; svarga--heavenly planet; dvaram--door; apavrtam--wide open; sukhinah--very happy; ksatriyah--the members of the royal order; partha--O son of Prtha; labhante--do achieve; yuddham--war; idrsam--like this.


      O Partha, happy are the ksatriyas to whom such fighting opportunities come unsought, opening for them the doors of the heavenly planets.


      As supreme teacher of the world, Lord Krsna condemns the attitude of Arjuna who said, "I do not find any good in this fighting. It will cause perpetual habitation in hell." Such statements by Arjuna were due to ignorance only. He wanted to become nonviolent in the discharge of his specific duty. For a ksatriya to be in the battlefield and to become nonviolent is the philosophy of fools.
