Bhagavadgeeta Verse 2.33

अथ चॆत् त्वं इमं धर्म्यं संग्रामं न करिष्यसि
ततः स्वधर्मं कीर्तिं च हित्वा पापं अवाप्स्यसि ॥ २.३३ ॥

ಅಥ ಚೇತ್ ತ್ವಂ ಇಮಂ ಧರ್ಮ್ಯಂ ಸಂಗ್ರಾಮಂ ನ ಕರಿಷ್ಯಸಿ
ತತಃ ಸ್ವಧರ್ಮಂ ಕೀರ್ತಿಂ ಚ ಹಿತ್ವಾ ಪಾಪಂ ಅವಾಪ್ಸ್ಯಸಿ || ೨.೩೩ ||

atha chEt tvaM imaM dharmyaM saMgrAmaM na kariShyasi
tataH swadharmaM keertiM cha hitvA pApaM avApsyasi || 2.33 ||

Further, if you do not wage this righteous war, you will be abandoning your own duty and honor, and thereby you will incur sin

Further, if you do not wage this righteous war, you will be abandoning your own duty and honor, and thereby you will incur sin

Points:

1. Arjuna in verse 1:36 says pApaM Eva AshrayEt asmAn hatvA EtAn AtatAyinaH= Only sin will take hold of us by slaying our kinsmen.

In this verse Shri krishna says that sin will come by NOT waging this dharmic war.

2. atha

This shabda is used to show the other side, the effects of NOT waging a war.

3. Verse 2:33-36 are stated by Shri Krishna to show the effects of NOT waging this dharmic war and to emphasize this war is dharmic.

4. imaM = this

This pronoun denotes the meritorious nature of this war and has the same meaning as the word eedRusham in the previous verse.

5. keertiM hitvA = Loss of honor or respect.

Make note that this says loss of honor and NOT loss of fame.
