The Mahabharata, Paperback Book

Description

The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India.

It is of immense importance to the culture of the Indian subcontinent, and is a major text of Hinduism.

Its discussion of human goals (artha or 'purpose', kama or 'pleasure', dharma or 'duty', and moksha or 'liberation') takes place in a long-standing tradition, attempting to explain the relationship of the individual to society and the world (the nature of the 'Self') and the workings of karma.
