One more question about freewill. I think freewill is free rather then just illusion. I have heard in your lectures that Dhritrashtra had a choice to stop the war since he is a king but still he didn't do because of his blind love towards his son Duryodhana. My question is if the war wouldn't happen then how do Krishna speak Bhagavad Gita ? Second question - If Krishna has already planned the war even before when it's started since it was his leela then what freewill Dhritrashtra had because he was just acting as Krishna Plan. So, how can you blame Dhritrashtra and his freewill ? Third Question - If the modes of nature acting upon Dhritrashtra and forcing to take the decision according to the best of his knowledge based on the time so how can you say that if this was his freewill and he is completely acting on his modes of nature ? So, I think what you talking about the freewill is not free rather than just illusion. (Asked by Rakesh Kumar Gudla from Hyderabad, Telangana, India at 02:42 min) 2. If Arjuna is the greatest archer then why can't he defeat the cowherd boys after the war was over and when Krishna has left the world. Doesn't mean that he is a Hero when the Krishna is only with him and not without. So then he is not called the greatest archer rather then dumb person who always seek Krishna's help. Here I am talking about Krishna's capacity and skills not about Krishna's power. I am aware of your explanation that Krishna is God and if he is with anyone he will win but I am talking about Arjuna as a person and his capacity and skills I don't think Arjuna is not equal to even street fighter without Krishna. So how can he called as the greatest archer. And moreover Krishna is killed all the enemies so so Arjuna was just playing as instrument in that case He called as a greatest archer even without actual skills and with Krishna is if so then Arjuna is called as greatest archer. I don't think so.
