Chapter 1 The description of the battle field gives the impression that there is a great war waging and Arjuna is in the midst of the battlefield with the power and control to end the war. The fighters are described as blood thirsty and filled with evil desires and therefore are seen as less than them and deserving to meet their end. He does not want to fight because he does not see a purpose behind it. He feels as if he would be committing an evil deed; he feels remorse for his kinsmen. Chapter 2 The wise do not grieve because they realize that everything born dies and everything that dies is reborn. Nothing can truly be destroyed, and a wise man realizes this reality, therefore does not grieve. Krishna says the senses attack the mind in the form of attraction and desires. These demons are constantly attacking the mind’s senses and many men fall victim to their desires and hopes. One who acts without the influence of these senses is considered a man of discipline. A soul is describes as something that is indestructible and constantly changing beings. The wise do not act for the sake of rewards, as most people do. Instead, they act with a clear and sure mind, without the influence of senses and hope of rewards or fulfillment of desires.

    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.
