धृतराष्ट्र उवाच |

धर्मक्षेत्रे कुरुक्षेत्रे समवेता युयुत्सवः ||
मामकाः पाण्डवाश्चैव किमकुर्वत संजय ||१||

1. Tell me, O Sanjaya ! Assembled on Kuruksetra, the centre of righteousness (Dharma), desirous to fight, what indeed did my people and the Pandavas do?

True it is that the two parties were gathered together for battle, but was the influence of Kuruksetra, the sacred centre of religious and spiritual activity
from or old, barren of any result?.Did not the spiritual influence of the spot affect any of the leaders in a way unfavourable to the occurrence of the battle? -is the purport of Dhrtarastra's question.
