भावितात्मासि कौन्तेय सत्यं विज्ञातवानसि ।
अयं सोहं जना एते मयेति त्यज वासनाम् ॥ ३८ ॥

bhāvitātmāsi kaunteya satyaṃ vijñātavānasi |
ayaṃ sohaṃ janā ete mayeti tyaja vāsanām || 38 ||

You are best acquainted with the self, O Arjuna! and well know the truth also;therefore try to get off your error of yourself and not yourself, as this I and that another, as also of your desires for yourself and other.
