anye – say

ca -also

bahvah -with emotion

śūrā – the heroes

madarthe -for the sake of meaning 

tyaktajīvitāḥ – sacrificed (tyakta) this life (jivaitah)

nānā-śastra-praharaṇāḥ -to each their own sastra (nana sastra) taking a blow (praharanah)

sarve – the entire

Yuddha-viśāradāḥ -that fought in the battle (yuddha) are learned men to be celebrated. 


Full meaning: Say also with emotion the heroes for the sake of meaning sacrificed their life to each their own sastra taking a blow the entire that fought in the battle are learned men to be celebrated. 


What does it say in Gita?

Now, the words are jumbled again to start off with mad arthe? And I am not sure I understand what seasoned warriors are….? 

It is saying all that fought with each their own sastra are learned men to be celebrated. 



About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious. veena kodali
