Prabhupada : The whole world was divided. Some of them joined this party; some of them joined that party. Just like it actually happens when there is big war. Even nowadays, all the nations, they make a group. Some of them forming were forming one group; another some of them, they formed another group. Exactly the same thing was done. Now Krsna was the charioteer, but when the chariot was brought in front of the two soldiers' party, Arjuna became little bit disturbed that "I have to fight. On the other side they are my brothers, they are my nephews, they are my gurus, Dronacarya, and they are my grandfather, Bhismadeva. So what kind of fight this is that I have to fight with my friends and relatives and family members?" So he hesitated, that "Krsna, what kind of fight this is? They are not my enemies; they are all family members. So I am not interested in this fight." So he practically decided not to fight. And Krsna said that "What is this nonsense? You are a military man, and you have come to fight here, and you are My friend and My relative also, and if you decide not to fight, what people will say?" This is the beginning. Then, after some arguments, Arjuna thought it wise that "Actually, I am a military man and I have come to fight a decision that we shall fight. Now what I am trying to do, to avoid this fighting? Actually it is not my business. I am deviating from my duty." Therefore... (aside:) Find out this, karpanya-dosa. Find out.
Pradyumna: karpanya-dosopahata-svabhavah prcchami tvam dharma-sammudha-cetah yac chreyah syan niscitam bruhi tan me sisyas te 'ham sadhi mam tvam prapannam

Prabhupada: Translation.
Pradyumna: "Now I am confused about my duty and have lost all composure because of weakness. In this condition I am asking You to tell me clearly what is best for me. Now I am Your disciple, and a soul surrendered unto You. Please instruct me."
Prabhupada: Yes. So Arjuna understood his weakness, his weak point. Therefore he said to Krsna that karpanya-dosopahata-svabhavah. Karpanya, this word, comes from krpana. Krpana... Krpana, this word, is known practically everyone. Krpanata means miserly. A person who has got enough resources but if he does not use it properly, it is called, he is called a krpana, miser. And the opposite word of krpana is udhara, or liberal. So there are two words, krpana. So Arjuna said, karpanya-dosa: "I know I can fight. I am quite competent military person, but I am not using my resources; therefore it is karpanya-dosopahata-svabhavah." Svabhavah means naturally a military man, a ksatriya, is very bold enough to fight. That is one of the qualification of a military man. Yuddhe capalayanam. The saurya, virya, tejah, yuddhe capalayanam, these are the symptoms of ksatriya. He would never go away from fighting. When there is challenge, fighting, a ksatriya will never deny. Yuddhe capalayanam. So when ksatriya, is especially a ksatriya like Arjuna... He is the best military man of that age, and he was denying to fight. So he could understand his weakness. He said, karpanya-dosopahata-svabhavah: "Naturally I should fight, but on account of my crippled decision or miserly decision, I am perplexed." So Krsna... He knew Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. "Therefore I am surrendering unto You."
