Filled with sad thoughts of the havoc that a war would create, the pious Yudhishthira requests Krishna to impress upon the Kauravas the futility of war. Krishna proceeds to Hastinapura, but on reaching the court of the Kaurava king Duryodhana he is treated with contempt and the Kauravas attempt to take him captive. An infuriated Satyaki, an ardent devotee of the Lord, whips out his sword in Krishna's defence. Krishna immediately puts out his hand and stops Satyaki and proceeds to reveal his Viswaroopam to everyone present in the court. One of the most telling moments in the epic Mahabharata which is brought to life by Ravi Varma.
