    Bhagavad Gita (bhagavadgeeta) on Twitter
    I am posting verses posted there till now.

    Chapter 1: The Yoga of the Despondency of Arjuna

    Dhritrarashtra: Assembled there on dharma’s field– Kurukshetra–desiring war, What did my sons and the Pandus? Do tell me now, O Sanjaya.(1)

    Sanjaya: There then the King Duryodhana, Seeing the Pandav forces ranged– Ready for battle–did approach His teacher, Drona, and did say: (2)

    “Behold, O Teacher! here arrayed This great army of Pandu’s sons, Assembled by Drupada’s son Who is thine own gifted pupil. (1:3)

    “Here are heroes, mighty archers, Bhima and Arjuna’s equals, The great warriors Yuyudhana, Virata and Drupada, too. (1:4)

    “Drishtaketu, Chekitana, And the valiant king of Kashi, Purujit and Kuntibhoja, And Shaibya–all the best of men. (1:5)

    And courageous Yudhamanyu, And valorous Uttamaujas– Shubhadra’s and Draupadi’s sons– All who are mighty car warriors. (1:6)

    Hear, too, O best of the twice-born, Those distinguished among ourselves. The leaders of my army here: These now I recount unto you. (1:7)

    Yourself and Bhishma and Karna And Kripa, victorious in war; Ashwattama, Vikarna, and Somadatta’s son: all are mine. (1:8)

    “Also many other heroes, Who now risk their lives for my sake, Discharging various weapons, All very skilled in waging war." (1:9)

    “Impossible to count is this Army defended by Bhishma, But that army led by Bhima Is very easy to number." (1:10)

    “Stationed in your proper places, Whatever be your positions, Do you now all give your support And protection unto Bhishma.” (1:11)

    "That powerful, oldest Kuru, Bhishma, the grandsire, blew his conch And sounded loud a lion-roar That he might cheer Duryodhana." (1:12)

    "Following Bhishma, suddenly Conches, kettledrums, cymbals, drums And trumpets were sounded aloud, So the uproar was tremendous." (1:13)

    I am taking the duty of posting everyday here what has been posted there. Don't make this thread a trash. If you want to comment don't post off topics here after the next post of mine.

    Sri Krishna blew Panchajanya,
    Arjuna blew Devadatta,
    And Bhima of ferocious deeds,
    Blew upon his great conch, Paundra. (15)

    This guy had stop posting for a while so I am posting from his source a verse by verse. As according to me it will be better as people will not have much time if I post many at once.


    "King Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, blew his conchshell, the Ananta-vijaya, and Nakula and Sahadeva blew the Sughosa and Manipuspaka. That great archer the King of Kasi, the great fighter Sikhandi, Dhrishtadyumna, Virata, the unconquerable Satyaki, Drupada, the sons of Draupadi, and the others, O King, such as the mighty-armed son of Subhadra, all blew their respective conchshells."

    There is no need to put this whole article here. A link would be sufficient.
