Description

The Mahabharata, in combination with its sister epic the Ramayana, emobodies the quintessence of our national consciousness, unity and great cultural heritage. These two great works together constitute the biggest single source of Indian poetry, philosophy, drama, fiction, music, sculpture, painting, folklore and other forms of creative expression.

Since ancient and hoary past these epics have been read, recited, enacted and told in story forms throughout the length and breadth of India. These were translated and transcreated from the original Sanskrit, in most of Indian languages within a few centuries of their composition. These traveled to distant lands and countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Java, Sumatra, Vietnam, Burma, etc., in the early centuries of the Christian era.

A work of great genius, like the Mahabharata belongs to the entire humanity, and not only to India and her people. It transcends all sectarian, institutionalized, religious, region and such other boundaries. A follower of any religion or country would not find anything wrong in reading, reciting, listening to, enjoying and learning form this great ancient literary and philosophical creation.
