Hari Om!


Not really, not that specifically.


Arjuna's arguments in the context of the first chapter were all motivated by his not wanting to fight. The evil effects of destruction of family values are there, no doubt and we have to make sure such things do not happen. Death, devastation and destruction of wars are definitely bad. However, in the context of Mahabharata war, there is a higher goal of establishing dharma, righteousness in society. The importance of protecting dharma is brought out in the fourth chapter. Other points like doing one's duty are also brought out in the other chapters.

In श्लोक 41 to 44 Arjun has expressed various apprehensions culminating in 44 saying "iti anuśuśruma" meaning they are all heresays. This has been pooh poohed by Bhagavan in 02/02, meaning of which is self explanatory.
