Story when Duryodhana returns to battlefield after Ashwatthama and Kripa counsel him to face his destiny with courage

Duryodhana manages to thrice defeat all the Pandavas and protect his army. As Shalya is killed by Yudhishthira, Duryodhana’s paltry army-once eleven akshauhinis strong-breaks, and the army is essentially routed. Having lost his horse, Duryodhana leaves the battlefield. He cools his body by entering a lake, all hope of winning lost, yet he prepares for his final battle; for a death befitting a warrior on the battlefield and hoping to reunite with his friends and relations in the afterlife. He re-emerges from the lake after Ashwatthama and Kripa counsel him to face his destiny with courage.
