In the first chapter of the Bhagavad-Gita,
we find Krishna and Arjuna in a war chariot, about to plunge into a
great battle. The battle is a holy one, for establishing a righteous
king against demonic forces. Battle lines are formed; warriors are ready,
and commanders on both sides blow their conchshells as a prelude to
the fight. The conchshells of the enemy side have made a tumultuous
sound, but the transcendental conchshells of the righteous side, especially
those of Krishna and Arjuna, shatter the hearts of the enemy.
