Translation - Lord Krishna And Arjuna In Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2 - Poem by Ravi Kopra
Overcome by pity and sorrow
agitated and tearful
thus spoke Lord Krishna:
from where does come
your vile shocking sorrow that
you will be denied entry into the heaven? '
O scorcher of enemies!
Don't be a sissy. It is not like you.
Cast off the weakness of your heart.'
'My sorrow dooms me, ' replied Arjuna
it would not leave me even if
I am powerful and wealthy
ruling over earth or gods in the heaven.
I shall not fight, ' said he
and stood fast in silence.
Lord Krishna then said to him:
'You grieve for those you should not
yet speak words of wisdom.
The wise do not grieve the living
nor do they grieve the dead.
No ruler, nor will I ever
cease to live after death.
As the soul passes from childhood
to adulthood to old body
so does it pass from body to body.
The wise know that.'
