Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 11 Text 14
tatah sa vismayavisto
hrsta-roma dhananjayah
pranamya sirasa devam
krtanjalir abhasata

tatah--thereafter; sah--he; vismaya-avistah--being overwhelmed with wonder; hrsta-roma--with his bodily hairs standing on end due to his great ecstasy; dhananjayah--Arjuna; pranamya--offering obeisances; sirasa--with the head; devam--to the Supreme Personality of Godhead; krta-anjalih--with folded hands; abhasata--began to speak.


Then, bewildered and astonished, his hair standing on end, Arjuna bowed his head to offer obeisances and with folded hands began to pray to the Supreme Lord.

JOURNAL: Srila Prabhupada makes these statements in his purport; Once the divine vision is revealed, the relationship between Krsna and Arjuna changes immediately. - In the scriptures there are twelve basic kinds of relationships mentioned, and all of them are present in Krsna. - He was not, of course, afraid. He was affected by the wonders of the Supreme Lord. The immediate context is wonder; his natural loving friendship was overwhelmed by wonder, and thus he reacted in this way.

Ohh, to be thus affected!
