In order to save a whole people, it is some times necessary to sacrifice
an individual. Does it not happen occasionally that a village is abandoned in order that
the country may be saved? I am afraid you will have to sacrifice Duryodhana if you want to
save your race. That is the only way."
Dhritarashtra said to Vidura: "Bring far- sighted Gandhari here.
It is possible that Duryodhana -might listen to her." Gandhari was sent for and, when
she came to the court, Duryodhana was sent for.
Duryodhana, his eyes red with anger, returned and Gandhari tried by all
the means in her power to bring him round to reason. Duryodhana said "No" and
again walked out of the hall.
He and his friends had plotted to seize Krishna. News of this reached
the court. Govinda, who had anticipated all this, laughed and disclosed his divinity.
The blind Dhritarashtra, by the grace of Krishna, temporarily regained
his sight and was able to see Krishna in his Visvarupa presence in every form.
