Chapter 1: Observing the Armies on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra
atra sura mahesv-asa
yuyudhano viratas ca
drupadas ca maha-rathah
Even though Dhrstadyumna was not a very important obstacle in the face of Dronacarya’s very great power in the military art, there were many others who were the cause of fear. They are mentioned by Duryodhana as great stumbling blocks on the path of victory because each and every one of them was as formidable as Bhima and Arjuna. He knew the strength of Bhima and Arjuna, and thus he compared the others with them.
kasirajas ca viryavan
purujit kuntibhojas ca
saibyas ca nara-pungavah
There are also great, heroic, powerful fighters like Dhrstaketu, Cekitana, Kasiraja, Purujit, Kuntibhoja and Saibya.
yudhamanyus ca vikranta
uttamaujas ca viryavan
saubhadro draupadeyas ca
sarva eva maha-rathah
There are the mighty Yudhamanyu, the very powerful Uttamauja, the son of Subhadra and the sons of Draupadi. All these warriors are great chariot fighters.
asmakam tu visista ye
tan nibodha dvijottama
nayaka mama sainyasya
samjnartham tan bravimi te
O best of the brahmanas, for your information, let me tell you about the captains who are especially qualified to lead my military force.
