      Sean -

      Krisna's advice to Arjuna is
      in the context of consciousness.
      The battleground is the mind
      and the concepts that the illusory
      and secondary identity (ego)
      finds so precious.

      Enlightenment - in one aspect, the
      victory over ego attachments - reveals
      a primary identity that has absolute
      clarity and no unanswered questions
      ...nothing to resolve...perfect peace
      of mind and utter tranquility.

      Jeff
