To Arjun upon the battlefield of Kurukshetra clearly;

That the backdrop for the Bhagwat Gita surely be,

मोहितं नाभिजानाति मामेभ्यः परमव्ययम्॥ ७.१३॥

Who beyond these Gunas and imperishable does but be.

Than perils of intrusion on others surely.’

Submit not to them they be your foe,
Else you will reap what ever you sow.’
