The Mahabharata, Hardback



"The Mahabharata" is the story of two warring factions of cousins - 100 demons in human form against five sons of gods.

Woven into this epic martial tale of great and bloody battles are numerous narrative digressions and much religious instruction - including the wisdom of Bhisma, give from a deathbed of arrows, and the legendary "Bhagavadgita", spoken by Krsna on the very verge of war.

The enactment of eternal conflicts, it is also a vital Hindu text on the nature of dharma - the right way for each person to live his or her life, and the only way to secure an improved lot in future births.
