Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 9 Text 35

sapadi sakhi-vaco nisamya madhye
nija-parayor balayo ratham nivesya
sthitavati para-sainikayur aksna
hrtavati partha-sakhe ratir mamastu

TRANSLATION
In obedience to the command of His friend, Lord Sri Krsna entered the arena of the Battlefield of Kuruksetra between the soldiers of Arjuna and Duryodhana, and while there He shortened the life spans of the opposite party by His merciful glance. This was done simply by His looking at the enemy. Let my mind be fixed upon that Krsna.

mama nisita-sarair vibhidyamana-
tvaci vilasat-kavace 'stu krsna atma

TRANSLATION
On the battlefield [where Sri Krsna attended Arjuna out of friendship], the flowing hair of Lord Krsna turned ashen due to the dust raised by the hoofs of the horses. And because of His labor, beads of sweat wetted His face. All these decorations, intensified by the wounds dealt by my sharp arrows, were enjoyed by Him. Let my mind thus go unto Sri Krsna.
