यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम्
परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे
O Aariyan, before you existed,
I stood here, unflinching....
Who saw the war for Dharma
I saw the rise and fall of Bheeshma and Drona....
And the divine Geeta from Krishna himself under my shade

#Kurukshetra #BhagvadGeeta

The eternal banyan tree.
And under the shade , I found a big group of pilgrims from Andhra Pradesh, sitting and reciting the shlokas from Bhagvad Geeta
Brahma Sarovar - the one that Brahma created.

It sees a large crowd of pilgrims for auspicious snana on all holy days. Especially solar eclipses.
One yogi talking to another... probably asking:

"Tell me who is a better ruler as per shastras? The one who works with निष्काम भाव for the people or the one who boasts of dynasty?'
