Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 1, Verse 14

Chapter 1: Observing the Armies on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra
Verse: 14
tatah svetair hayair yukte
mahati syandane sthitau
madhavah pandavas caiva
divyau sankhau pradadhmatuh

Translation:
On the other side, both Lord Krishna and Arjuna, stationed on a great chariot drawn by white horses, sounded their transcendental conchshells.

Explanation:
Srila Prabhupada says, "In contrast with the conchshell blown by Bhishmadeva, the conchshells in the hands of Krishna and Arjuna are described as transcendental." This is the first of the next seven verses that describe signs that would indicate an auspicious victory for the Pandavas. Krishna is addressed as "Madhava," which means the husband of the Goddess of Fortune (Lakshmi devi). Since Krishna is on the side of the Pandavas,
as a chaste wife, Lakshmi devi will reside by the side of her husband, giving all good fortune to the Pandavas.

Please read the Sanskrit Verse and the Prabhupada's Purport.
