Arjun Vishaad Yog-Bhagavad Gita Chapter 1 [Observing the Armies on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra]
Sanjaya Said > Shaloka: 9
There are many other heroes who are prepared to lay down their lives for my sake. All of them are wellequipped with different kinds of weapons, and all are experienced in military science.
As far as others are concerned – like Jayadratha, Krtavarma, Salya, etc – all are determined to lay down their lives for Duryodhana’s sake. In other words, it is already concluded that all of them would die in the Battle of Kuruksetra for joining the party of the sinful Duryodhana. Duryodhana was, of course, confident of his victory on account of the above – mentioned combined strength of his friends.
