Description: Before the Mahabharata battle, Krsna preaches the Bhagavad Gita to his friend Arjuna, and reveals that he is the ultimate God in human form. Arjuna begs him to display his divinity, which he does
but Arjuna is so overcome with awe at the sight that he quickly requests him to return to his human form again (on the right). (See Bhagavad Gita, XI)
