To protect Arjuna Krishna got down from the chariot, took up a chariot
wheel and hurriedly rushed at Bhismadeva in an angry mood, as a lion
goes to kill an elephant. He dropped His covering cloth on the way, and
out of great anger He did not even noticed that. Bhismadeva at once
gave up his weapons and stood ready to be killed by Krishna, his
Maharaja Yudhisthira went to the scene of the massacre. There, Bhismadeva was lying on a bed of arrows, about to pass away. Bhismadeva was endowed with the power of leaving his material body at will, and while lying on the bed of arrows that pierced his body the great warrior attracted the attention of all the contemporary elites, and all of them assembled there to show their feelings of love, respect and affection for the great soul.
