Before the Mahabharata war began, Lord Krishna who was a diplomat par excellence, a king who cared for his subjects and a dharimic politician offered the Pandavas and Kauravas a choice. They could either have him on their side as a non-combatant - he would not fight - or they could choose his powerful army comprising the mighty Yadavas.
Duryodhana who was practical and worldly-wise chose the army. Arjuna, the friend and devotee of Lord Krishna, chose the Lord. All of us make this choice. We have to live in the phenomenal world and fight our battles. While battles can be won if you have powerful friends and associates. But the big war against maya cannot be won unless one surrenders to the lord.
May Shri Krishna, the friend of Partha, guide us on the path of dharma. Jai Ranchhod Krishna ki!
