At the conclusion of the Gita, Lord Krishna declares to Arjuna: “Yathecchasi Tatha Kuru. Now, it is up to you what you will choose. Whether to follow and do as I say or whether to follow your own desire.” [Gita 18.63] The individual has freedom of choice. He can weigh pros and cons. He can anticipate consequences by reflection.
