All glories to Srila Prabhupada
I have a doubt in the second verse of the Bhagavad Gita
Sanjaya said: O King, after looking over the army arranged in military formation by the sons of Pändu, King Duryodhana went to his teacher and spoke the following words.
Srila Prabhupada writes at the end of his purport
Although Duryodhana is mentioned as the king, he still had to go to the commander on account of the seriousness of the situation. He was therefore quite fit to be a politician.
I have been having difficulty in understanding what is the relationship between 'he still had to go to the commander on account of the seriousness of the situation' and 'He was therefore quite fit to be a politician.'
How can going to the commander imply being fit to be a politician?
I know i am missing something very obvious but i have just not been able to figure out this for a long time now.
It would be great help if any devotee can explain this very nicely. Also it would be nice if the explanation could be supplemented by some reference to Srila Prabhupadas words or other parts of the scriptures.
