Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
O son of Prtha, O conqueror of wealth, have you heard this with an attentive mind? And are your ignorance and illusions now dispelled?
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The Lord was acting as the spiritual master of Arjuna. Therefore it was His duty to inquire from Arjuna whether he understood the whole Bhagavad-gita in its proper perspective. If not, the Lord was ready to re-explain any point, or the whole Bhagavad-gita if so required. Actually, anyone who hears Bhagavad-gita from a bona ﬁde spiritual master like Krishna or His representative will ﬁnd that all his ignorance is dispelled. Bhagavad-gita is not an ordinary book written by a poet or ﬁction writer; it is spoken by the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Any person fortunate enough to hear these teachings from Krishna or from His bona ﬁde spiritual representative is sure to become a liberated person and get out of the darkness of ignorance.
