"Sanjaya, what you say is true. Rectitude is the best of
possessions, but are we committing wrong? Krishna knows the intricacies of rectitude and
dharma. He wishes both sides well. I shall do as Vasudeva orders."
Krishna said: "I desire the welfare of the Pandavas. I desire also
that Dhritarashtra and his sons should be happy. This is a difficult matter. I think I can
settle this issue by myself going to Hastinapura.
If I could obtain peace from the Kauravas on terms which do not
conflict with the welfare of nothing would make me the Pandavas happier. If I succeed in
doing so, the Kauravas will have been rescued from the jaws of death.
I shall also have achieved something good and worthwhile. Even if,
through a peaceful settlement, the Pandavas get back what is due to them, they will still
serve Dhrita- rashtra loyally.
