Who is Arjuna?

Arjuna is a warrior of the Hindu epic Mahabharata.
One text of this epic, the Bhagavad Gita ("The Song by God"), describes the Kurukshetra War.
It is fought between two groups of cousins, the Pandavas and the Kauravas.
Arjuna, the son of King Pandu, belongs to the Pandavas.
Initially, he hesitates to join the war, as he spots his relatives on the other side.
At that point, Krishna, who represents the Divine, steps in and explains Arjuna why he still has to fight.
Arjuna accepts the advice from his teacher Krishna and joins the battle, leading the Pandavas to victory.
At the end of his life, Arjuna retires to the Himalayas.


One might wonder why God Krishna suggests cousins to fight.
One interpretation is that this fight is an internal one.
It means that Arjuna's light and dark side fight.
This is why Krishna tells Arjuna that he has to join the battle.
Arjuna wins and later in his life retires to the Himalayas, which represents Arjuna's ascension to his higher self.
