This edition of the Krishna Connect podcast is the first part of the second chapter of Bhagavad Gita As It Is. This chapter starts with Arjuna bewildered after seeing all his friends and family members on the battlefield of Kuruksetra ready to fight. Arjuna has decided not to fight and is considering leaving the battlefield and taking up the begging profession, rather than doing his duty and fighting this religious war. It is in this chapter that Arjuna realizes he is bewlidered an that the only way his bewilderment can be solved is with the help of his friend Krishna. He surrenders to Krishna and accepts Krishna as his spiritual master. This second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita is the summary of the whole book.
Madhudvisa dasa My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna."
I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can.
That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental!
That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!

In this verse krishna describes to arjuna, Arjuna when it comes to war do not show compassion to your opponents it may even be your close relatives or any body in matter all you have to see is to win the war in righteous way and is victory is over evil to Good
the podcast rightly describes this chapter of bhagwat geeta
