I learned to see this point about killing the brothers and the elders in
Gita in a symbolical way. In fact, the Gita doesn´t mean to really kill the
relatives but the relatives are a symbol for our bad habits and "defects" of
the ego. It is called "brothers and elders" because our "defects" of ego (
greed, lust, vanity, selfishness) are so dear to us, that killing them hurts
as if we were killing our brothers and elders.
Greetings to all.
