Chapter 1: The Yoga of Dejection

On the confrontation with the necessity to fight

(1) In B.C 3102, the blind uncle of Pandavas called Dhritarashthra said: "At Kurukshetra, a place of pilgrimage, my party and the pandavas, the sons of Pandu, assembled desiring to fight. O Sanjaya What did they do?"

(2) Sanjaya said: "After seeing the line up of the soldiers of the Pandavas, king Duryodhana, the eldest of the kauravas, at that time approached his teacher, Dronacarya, and said:

(3) Just see the sons of Pandu, brother of Dhritarashthra and the father of the Pandavas, O teacher, arranged as a great military force by the son of Drupada, who is the father in law of Arjuna, Dhristadyumna,your intelligent disciple.

(4) There are heroes and mighty bowmen equal in the fight to Bhima and Arjuna, like Yuyudhana and Virata as also Drupada himself, who is also a great warrior.

(5) Dhrishthaketu, Cekitana, Kasiraja, and also the very powerful Purujit, Kuntibhoja and Saibya are there, who are all great heroes in human society.
