Nandita Pushpala Rel B 220: assignment 3 3/2/15 Krishna is an avatar of Vishnu, known as one of the most significant Deities in the Hindu faith. Vishnu is often known as the Supreme god and is often called by the name Svayam Bhgavan, which is translated as the absolute representation of god. Krishna is predominantly known for his incarnation in the form of a man, which facilitated his direct interactions with humans throughout the Bhagvad Gita. Specifically, Krishna interacts with a warrior, known as Arjuna, that faces a huge moral dilemma with involvement in a significant battle. Arjuna is the greatest warrior during his time. His involvement in this battle is extremely crucial for greater good, or the dharmic balance of the universe. However, the root of his conflict stems in the issue that his opponents are some of his family members, mentors, and friends. Since killing these people poses immediate dissatisfaction, Arjuna is temporarily unable to make his decision because he is torn between his dharmic duty of a warrior and personal, materialistic consequences from his involvement in the battle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
