A 16th-century painting illustrating a battle scene in the Bhagavad Gita, during the battle of Kurukshetra.

Arjuna (far right), hero and leader of the Pandava army, is supported by his personal charioteer, the god Krishna (second from right). The gods are looking down on the battlefield.

Krishna is aiding Arjuna mentally and spiritually, explaining him that it is his duty to proceed and to fight for what is right.
