Arjuna reveals his deep faith and devotion to the Lord in this verse. Arjuna’s humility is exemplary. He speaks in the true spirit of a disciple seeking enlightenment from a great master. Pride and arrogance and utterly objectionable in the presence of God, Guru, and elders. Lord Krishna is Himself the Supreme Paramatma; He is omniscient. He alone knows the past, present, and future of all beings in all the worlds. So He alone is fit to clear Arjuna’s doubt about the future of the imperfect Yogi. Arjuna appeals to the Lord that except He there – is no one to one to dispel his doubt.
