ERLÄUTERUNG: Der Ahnherr der Kuru-Dynastie wußte, was im Herzen seines Enkels Duryodhana vorging, und aus natürlichem Mitgefühl versuchte er, ihn anzuspornen, indem er sehr laut in sein Muschelhorn blies, was seiner löwengleichen Stellung angemessen war. Durch die Symbolik des Muschelhorns gab er seinem niedergeschlagenen Enkel indirekt zu verstehen, daß er keine Chance habe, in der Schlacht siegreich zu sein, da der Höchste Herr, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, auf der anderen Seite stand. Nichtsdestoweniger war es seine Pflicht, den Kampf durchzuführen, und er würde dabei keine Mühen scheuen.

The grandsire of the Kuru dynasty could understand the inner meaning of the heart of his grandson Duryodhana, and out of his natural compassion for him he tried to cheer him by blowing his conchshell very loudly, befitting his position as a lion. Indirectly, by the symbolism of the conchshell, he informed his depressed grandson Duryodhana that he had no chance of victory in the battle, because the Supreme Lord Kṛṣṇa was on the other side. But still, it was his duty to conduct the fight, and no pains would be spared in that connection.
