sa ghoṣo dhārtarāṣṭrāṇāṁ
hṛdayāni vyadārayat
nabhaś ca pṛthivīṁ caiva
tumulo ’bhyanunādayan

“The din rent the hearts of Dhritarashtra’s men, filled the earth below and the vault above.”

(Sañjaya): “Duryodhana himself, witnessing the strength of the Pāṇḍavas under the auspices of Bhīma, and his own strength under Bhīshma, and then submitting to the notice of his master (Droṇa) the perfection of strength on Bhīma’s side to win victory over him, and defect in his own strength against obtaining victory (over the opposite side), felt inwardly grieved. Bhīshma understanding this, sent up a lion’s roar and blew his conch followed by a tumult of sounds emanating from (beating) drums, (blowing) conches, etc. as if indicative of (coming) success – in order to cheer up Duryodhana. On hearing this, Pārtha’s[1. Epithet of Arjuna, being a descendant of Pṛithu-Chakravarti.] Charioteer, the Lord of all lords[2. Sarveśvareśvaraḥ = The 97th name of Vishṇu. “Yatra devānām adhi-Deva āste“, (Kaushītakī Brāhmaṇopanishat), “Tam daivatānām Paramañcha Daivatam” (Śvetāśvatara: Up:)] (Śri Kṛishṇa) and the rider in the chariot, viz., Pāndu’s son (Arjuna), both posted in their majestic car – fit to conquer all the three[2. Bhūḥ, Bhuvaḥ, Svaḥ = the Earth, Intermediate Regions and Heaven; or the Terrene, Āerial and Celestial plains.] worlds with – sounded their respective conches, named the Blissful Pāñchajanya and Devadatta, which shook the three worlds. Then did Yudhishṭhira, Vṛikodara (Bhīma), etc., each blow his instrument. The uproar caused went cleaving into the hearts of Duryodhana and of thy other sons, and all. Dhṛitarāshtra’s men thought: ‘the Kuru army is as good as already destroyed.’!” Thus did Sañjaya narrate to Dhṛitarāshtra who was longing for his sons’ success.
