Arjuna says: "If I do not perform my duty, all these people will be led astray by the influence of material desires, and I will be responsible for creating confusion in society."

In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2, Arjuna is in confusion and grief on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. He is torn from his duty as a warrior and his affection for his relatives and loved ones who oppose him in the war. Arjuna's reluctance to fight becomes apparent when he considers the consequences of entering into this destructive conflict.  

 In verse 14, Arjuna expresses  concern about the possible consequences if he refrains from performing his prescribed warrior duties. He considers the effect this would have on the people, which would lead to confusion and moral decline. The term "utsīd" means to go astray, indicating that failure to act would lead to a decline in society's values ​​and justice.



Arjuna recognizes that if he neglects his duty, he will become a key factor in creating chaos and moral decay. The term  "saṅkara" refers to  mixture or mixture, meaning a state of impurity and confusion. Arjuna realizes that his actions or inactions would affect those around him and shape the fate of society. 

  This verse emphasizes the concept of dharma or duty in the Bhagavad Gita. Arjuna's dilemma represents the universal struggle between personal desires and social obligations. Lord Krishna, Arjuna's charioteer and spiritual guide, continues with profound wisdom that helps him overcome  confusion and make the right decision. 


 Essentially, verse 14 emphasizes the importance of fulfilling one's duty and responsibility in maintaining social order and harmony. It reminds people that their actions have consequences beyond their immediate sphere of action and affect the collective well-being of society. Arjuna's recognition of the possible consequences of his inaction is a crucial turning point in his journey of self-realization and spiritual growth. 

 

 Through the following verses, Lord Krishna adds deeper teachings, guiding Arjuna to a better understanding of his duty and the ultimate purpose of life. The dialogue between Arjuna and Lord Krishna forms the heart of the Bhagavad Gita and offers profound insights into various aspects of human existence, spirituality and the path to self-realization.
