I am confused, I am giving into my weakness. I surrender to you. Take me as your disciple. Tell me what is best for me.

Bewildered Arjuna, surrenders unto Krishna and pleads him to direct him. Arjuna knows what he is feeling is not fit for him, yet he doesn’t want to face the situation which he is in right now. He surrenders to Krishna, he no longer treats him as his cousin/friend. He wants Krishna to direct him.
