|Chapter 1||Lamenting the Consequence of War||Verse 30|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Furthermore I am not able to stand here and compose myself for I see adverse omens and portents which forebode evil.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Madhvacarya has no commentary so we present Baladeva Vidyabhusana's.
It is as if my mind is unsteady. With these words of dejection the weakness of Arjuna is disclosed and it can be understood that he is close to losing consciousness. He says: in in this war I am seeing the consequense of opposing results. This means that even if he were victorious in obtaining the kingdom he would not feel any satisfaction. To the contrary he would feel just the opposite, he would feel remorse. Here in this sense the word nimittani meaning inauspicious omens is not given as a symptom but as a result.
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The burning sensation in his skin and tremors in the left side of the body are all indicative of evil forecasting adverse omens of dire consequences.
