Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 2

sri-bhagavan uvaca
kutas tva kasmalam idam
visame samupasthitam
anarya-justam asvargyam
akirti-karam arjuna

sri-bhagavan uvaca--the Supreme Personality of Godhead said; kutah--wherefrom; tva--unto you; kasmalam--dirtiness; idam--this lamentation; visame--in this hour of crisis; samupasthitam--arrived; anarya--persons who do not know the value of life; justam--practiced by;asvargyam--which does not lead to higher planets; akirti--infamy; karam--the cause of; arjuna--O Arjuna.


The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear Arjuna, how have these impurities come upon you? They are not at all befitting a man who knows the value of life. They lead not to higher planets but to infamy.


The first words that Krishna speaks in Bhagavad Gita is to ask Arjuna, "What's wrong?". Isn't it comforting to know that God is concerned for us and the problems we face.
