Bhagavad Gita Parva is the sixty third Upa parva included in the sixth Maha parva named as Bhishma parva. Vyasa Maharshi had composed Mahabharata.

नारायणं नमस्कृत्य नरं चैव नरोत्तमं । 
देवीं सरस्वतीं व्यासं ततो जय मुदीरयेत्त् ॥

Meaning: Prostrating Narayana, the best man among the human beings, the Goddess Saraswathi, Vyasa, and later, the name ‘Jaya’ should be pronounced.

In his original work in Sanskrit language, Vyasa had written more than thousand verses in Bhagavadgita Upa parva called by the original name as Jaya. After many years, many editions by many others have evolved.

The present version of Bhagavadgita contains seven hundred Sanskrit verses and it was compiled by Adi Shankaracharya, for the convenience of history-worshipping readers. The esteemed readers are requested to have a printed hard copy of Bhagavadgita and it is always recommended to refer it frequently than this electronic format. The same book was preserved for centuries in palm leaf bundles.

Vaishampayana continued narration to Janamejaya in reply to his queries as follows.

How many times Sanjaya had reported to Dritarashtra about the war?

Sanjaya had reported four times to Dritarashtra about the war. Initially, he reported on the tenth day of the evening of the war. As usual, after collection of data of war proceedings, Sanjaya had returned to his home near Hastinavati from Kurukshetra at five o’clock on the evening of the Great War. He had started in the early morning before nine o’clock from his home.

For the initial ten days, Sanjaya had been regularly following his duty schedule like a regular media reporter for data collection. He had slept for eight hours daily during those nights. From nine o’clock in the morning till five o’clock in the evening, he gathered all the war related data and kept in memory to report in detail to Dritarashtra. He had reported his data collections four times to Dritarashtra about the great Mahabharata war including its consequences.

On the tenth day, Sanjaya had visited Dritarashtra, disclosed the news of falling of Bhishma (Patana means falling in Sanskrit). For the first time, Sanjaya reported Dritarashtra regarding the advancement of Shikhandi with aiming arrows towards Bhishma. He had fallen due to the aimed arrows of Shikhandi, while Bhishma had held his bow in one hand and arrow in the other hand, had suddenly recognised Shikhandi but fell down on the Earth in the battlefield. It was reported by Sanjaya on the tenth day evening. Like this, he had reported for the second time on the evening of the thirteenth day after Drona had fallen.

On the fifteenth day evening, Sanjaya had reported it to Dritarashtra after Karna had fallen down for the third time. Sanjaya had reported finally for the fourth time after the fall of Duryodhana on the eighteenth day evening. Even though Sanjaya had desired to report about the Great War to Dritarashtra on the seventeenth day evening, he could not approach him. The reasons for this fact would be discussed in the Shalya Vadha Parva article of this website.

On the tenth day evening, Dritarashtra could not believe the words of Sanjaya so required to repeat his news. Hence Sanjaya had repeated the same news once again as Bhishma had fallen in the battlefield. Dritarashtra had recollected his memories refreshing all the previous heroic incidences of Bhishma exhibited by him throughout his active career as per his vow. Dritarashtra thought it was impossible or unbelievable. 

What Dritarashtra had required with Sanjaya on hearing the fall of Bhishma?

Dritarashtra required Sanjaya to repeat the incidences from the very beginning of the war. He heavily repented for the fall of Bhishma in the battlefield. Dritarashtra had many queries about the war field, particularly the arrangements made by Duryodhana to save Bhishma, so he required Sanjaya to describe about it in detail. 

What was done by Duryodhana to save Bhishma on the tenth day? 

Duryodhana had ordered Dushasana to provide every possible protection to save Bhishma in the battlefield. Hence he reported Dritarashtra about Duryodhana, particularly about his attempts made to save Bhishma in the war field by avoiding him to face Shikhandi directly. On the side of Yudhishtira, they had planned to bring Shikhandi in front of Bhishma and hence thereby discourage Bhishma.

That war had been fought between armed soldiers of Kaurava and Pandava armies but aiming an arrow to the head of any charioteer was a wrong protocol of that war. It was Bhishma for the first time who committed a mistake in following the war protocol and aimed an arrow towards the head of Krishna but immediately on pressing the reigns of the horses Krishna had bent the chariot a little down, resulting the arrow had chopped off the crown of Arjuna.

In order to save the lives of Arjuna and self simultaneously, Krishna had held his wheel protesting further arrows of Bhishma if any, but at once Shikhandi was there and Bhishma had fell down. The inherent desire of Bhishma was to see Krishna directly holding his Sudarshana wheel and satisfactorily on seeing it, holding his own bow with arrow had fallen down, feebly calling Arjuna for providing arrows-bed for his hanging head supported by inverted arrows. So despite the protections of Duryodhana, Bhishma had fallen in the battlefield.  Duryodhana had arranged all his possible military efforts to save Bhishma including summoning doctors also.

What was discussed by Yudhishtira and Arjuna before the start of the war?

Yudhishtira had only seven Akshohini regiments whereas Duryodhana had eleven Akshohini regiments. Yudhishtira and Arjuna had discussed regarding the possibilities of facing the big lions by the small foxes. Different types of Vyuha formations were also discussed by Arjuna and Yudhishtira. Arjuna told him he will always consult Krishna before doing anything in the battlefield. Krishna had already used a Sanskrit phrase ॥ यतो धर्मस्ततो जयः ॥, he repeated the same then. The meaning is, where there is righteousness, there happens the success. Krishna was with Arjuna so Yudhishtira need not worry about the results.

What was done by the soldiers under Bhishma on the side of Duryodhana initially?

The soldiers under Bhishma on the side of Duryodhana initially had happily proceeded and protected him to avoid Shikhandi from directly facing Bhishma in the battlefield.

What was done by Bhima to save Shikhandi on the side of Pandavas?

Pandava side soldiers under Bhima initially had happily proceeded and protected Shikhandi from directly facing Kaurava side active soldiers in the battlefield.

How Vyasa had done the Mahabharata war a more interesting story?

After providing the holy vision capacity to Sanjaya, Vyasa had left Hastinavati. Vyasa had told the original war story to his son Shuka and disciple Vaishampayana. The more interesting items are the narration techniques. In the Jambhu Dvipa Parva, the status of the historical nation Bharata Varsha and the military war preparations of the Mahabharata war of both sides of Pandavas and Kauravas were narrated.

In the Bhumi Parva, the administrative set up under Hastinavati emperor under the management capacity of Bhishma were described. Actually, Bhishma had conducted three hundred Ashwamedha yagas and they were already described in this website in Bhumi Parva.

On the tenth day evening of the war, Bhishma had fallen. So on that day, the famous Bhagavad Gita had found the light of this world or say published. But more narrations about the actual fall of Bhishma would be illustrated in the later in Bhishma Patana Parva. Thus the story had been made more interesting for the esteemed readers. The philosophy ॥ यतो धर्मस्ततो जयः ॥ is told in this Parva by Krishna. It was repeated for more than thirteen times.

What happened to the regiments of soldiers coming under Drishtadyumna?

Drishtadyumna was the commander in chief for the side of Pandavas. Since Shikhandi had got his success against Bhishma, the soldiers under Drishtadyumna enjoyed and indirectly encouraged in the battlefield to move against Drona.

What Arjuna had requested with Krishna before the start of the war?

On the first day before the start of the war, Arjuna had requested with Krishna to park his chariot in the middle of the both side armies to have a vision of the armies. Arjuna desired to have a look at the warriors there who advanced for the war.

What Krishna had told with Arjuna before the start of the war?

Krishna had advised Arjuna to worship the Goddess Mother Durga Matha being the source of energy as well as the success assigner in the war. He also instructed to recite the twelve verses, shlokas in Sanskrit to get the Devi Kripa forever.

Then Krishna had moved his chariot to the midpoint of the both side armies. He showed the commander-in-chief of the opposite army, the great Bhishma.

य एष गोप्ता प्रतपन्बलस्थो यो नः सेनां सिंह इवेक्षते च ।
स एष भीष्मः कुरु वंश केतुर् येनाहृतास्त्रिम्शतो वाजिमेधाः॥

Meaning: Krishna addressed Arjuna and showed him Bhishma, telling as, see the protected Bhishma, looking like a lion with anger towards our army, who had conducted three hundred Ashvamedhas for upholding the Kuru dynasty. 

Bhishma had conducted three hundred Ashwamedha yagas and it had been told by Krishna as in the Bhumi Parva article narrated in this website.

What is the name of the famous discussion held between Krishna and Arjuna?

The seven hundred Sanskrit verses containing the discussions between Krishna and Arjuna and the moral advices intended as Sanatana Dharma is termed as Bhagavad Gita. This has eighteen chapters or Adhyayas with seven hundred verses in it.

What Arjuna told to Krishna after Krishna parked their chariot in the midpoint of the two troops? 

Arjuna desired to have a clear and direct vision of the soldiers of his own side and the warriors gathered in the opposite side. After thirteen years, he had seen Duryodhana. But Arjuna felt Duryodhana as his brother rather than an enemy. Arjuna had seen Bhishma and Drona. But Arjuna felt Bhishma as his grandfather, Drona as his revered teacher and not as an enemy, and a lot of friends and relatives in the Kurukshetra battlefield.

His heart was filled with kindness and respect towards the people assembled there for the war. He had started thinking the war is bad. Arjuna was very much confused. Sweating started on his body. Arjuna told Krishna, all the persons gathered there were his dears and nears and he was struck by grief.

गांडीवं स्रंसते हस्तात्वक्चैव परिदह्यते ।
न च शक्नोम्यवस्थातुं भ्रमतीव च मे मनः ॥

Meaning: The bow is falling from the hands due to trembling. Body is feeling like burning. I can not stand straight. Mind is very much confused.

By holding both hands folded, Arjuna desired to withdraw from the battlefield. This first chapter is called as Arjuna Vishada yoga. Krishna was the charioteer to Arjuna. The discouraging words of Arjuna had resulted in Krishna take up a challenge to boost him for the motivation of assuming their duties.

Krishna had incarnated in this world accepting human physical form to re-establish the Sanatana Dharma utilising Arjuna. So Krishna had started to tell many philosophical as well as practical deliberations to remind him about the war time. But Arjuna had abandoned his weapons and tried to declare not to participate in the war. Krishna was clever to handle the situations. Krishna desired to fulfil the requirements of his incarnations, moreover strongly condemned Arjuna’s views about his situations.

The second chapter is called as Sankhya yoga. Sankya means number. Time is accountable by numbers. Everything is subjected under knowledge.
