Gathas: Song 14.1

Translated Text:

Now, Wise One, Bendva always obstructs me the most,

I, who wish to satisfy the badly protected through righteousness.

Come to me with good reward and support.

I am seeking illumination for him through good mind.

(Gathas: Song 14.1)

Summary Substance: After declaring his plan, Zarathushtra turns to an arch enemy, Bendva (Vedic Bandhu, a composer of the Rig Veda). He is the main obstruction in Zarathushtra's way. Zarathushtra wants to attend, in a rightful way, to the people who face the dangers of opposition. They have to be saved. He is praying for divine guidance and seeking solution through good mind.
