sambandha- jnana- hinera haya krma- banddha phansa
arjuna karaye yuddha (ara) duryodhana kare
arjuna bhakta-sresta, duryodhana mare
eka yuddha-ksetre dui priyapriya haya
buddhimana loka yei bujhite paraya
Translation- The most clever of all is one who worships Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. On the other hand, one who worships His external energy in the form of this material world, in due course of time certainly loses everything and is thus to be considered a less intelligent pauper. Just to become a pauper, all the temporary activities of this world are being performed. Thus the foolish materialists have forgotten the knowledge of their eternal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and by their hard labor they are simply weaving the noose to hang themselves, increasing their bondage to these material world day by day.
On the battlefield of Kuruksetra, both Arjuna and Duryodhana were fighting, however their situations were completely different. Arjuna remained in the transcendental Position through devotional service and was considered the best of all the devotees of the Lord. Duryodhana (the famous materialist) achieved his death.
Kindly consider that on the battlefield were both the dearmost devotees of the Lord, who were victorious in all respect, and on the other side were the atheists, who achieved complete destruction. The purport of all these affairs is easily understood by persons endowed with true intelligence.
