Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 10

tam uvaca hrsikesah
prahasann iva bharata
senayor ubhayor madhye
visidantam idam vacah

tam--unto him; uvaca--said; hrsikesah--the master of the senses, Krsna; prahasan--smiling; iva--like that; bharata--O Dhrtarastra, descendant of Bharata; senayoh--of the armies; ubhayoh--of both parties; madhye--between; visidantam--unto the lamenting one; idam--the following; vacah--words.


O descendant of Bharata, at that time Krsna, smiling, in the midst of both the armies, spoke the following words to the grief-stricken Arjuna.


Srila Prabhupada states in his purport; It appears that the talk between the master and the disciple was openly exchanged in the presence of both armies so that all were benefitted. So the talks of Bhagavad-gita are not for any particular person, society, or community, but they are for all, and friends or enemies are equally entitled to hear them.

There is no secret knowledge in Krishna consciousness. No secret mantra. No secret anything. In fact, every time I visit a temple the devotees ask, "Do you have any questions?"
