Verse of the Day : Bhagavad-gita As It Is -- 1.44


अहो बत महत्पापं कर्तुं व्यवसिता वयम् |

यद्राज्यसुखलोभेन हन्तुं स्वजनमुद्यताः || ४४ ||

TRANSLATION

Alas, how strange it is that we are preparing to commit greatly sinful acts, driven by the desire to enjoy royal happiness.

PURPORT


Driven by selfish motives, one may be inclined to such sinful acts as the killing of one’s own brother, father, or mother. There are many such instances in the history of the world. But Arjuna, being a saintly devotee of the Lord, is always conscious of moral principles and therefore takes care to avoid such activities.
