Quandary Resolution 596
precatory, demure, suborn, torpor
Yudhishtra was so demure and morally upright that his chariot floated two inches above the ground, but once Krishna, through a precatory remark, suborned him into lying that Dhrona's son was dead, his torpor in the face of Dhrona's suffering brought his chariot down to the ground.
