Bhagavat Gita for Duryodhana

This is a very interesting question. if Lord Krishna had told Bhagavad Gita to Duryodhana instead of Arjuna, then the Mahabharata war in Kurukshetra could be avoided?

Lord Krishna tried to Convenience Duryodhana to avoid the Mahabharat war. Instead of knowing that war between Kauravas and Pandavas has to happen in order to establish "Dharma" in this world, he tried many times to avoid the bloodiest war on the planet. But it is the arrogance and ego of the Kauravas, especially Duryodhana that destroys all the possibilities of avoiding the Mahabharat war.

Before Kurukshetra War Lord Krishna asks Duryodhana that you, a prince of great lineage. You have been brought up well and you have everything you want. Then why are you doing these horrible things to Pandavas? It is "adharma", unethical, and morally wrong, the way you are treating Pandavas.

Duryodhana says: I know what is right but I am not able to practice it; I know what is wrong and I am not able to keep away from it. I act as I am directed to by some mysterious power that is seated in my heart.

And instead of listening to Lord Krishna, he completely rejected him. Duryodhana has no doubts about anything. He thinks he knows everything and doesn’t need advice from anybody.

On the other hand, Arjuna had the same doubts. But here is the key difference between Arjuna and Duryodhana.

Both Duryodhana and Arjuna had doubts about life.

Duryodhana’s arrogance and ego prevent him from asking questions and clearing his doubts.

On the other hand, Arjuna is not hesitant nor he thinks that he knows everything. Arjuna surrenders himself to Lord Krishna and asks questions after questions

Here is the difference!!

Bhagavad Gita for everyone, for Arjuna, for Duryodhana, and for yourself, it just depends on how you surrender to your doubts and clearing them.

Srimad Bhagavad Gita is all about Arjuna asking questions to Lord Krishna and Lord Krishna clearing his doubts.

This is why they say, answers will only come to those who ask questions.
