Description

This epic is held in great reverence and esteem by the millions of Hindus and is generally known as the fifth Veda, for it contains the Gita, acknowledgment of a belief in which as the Scripture is the hallmark of every true Hindu. For thousands of years and even today, the Hindu prefaces his worship, his ceremonies and his celebrations with the announcement that he is a dweller in the land of Bharatavarsha and Bharatakhanda.

The epic contains the life history of the Bharatas, for more than four generations beginning with Santanu onwards to Parikshit and Janamejaya and commonly known as Pandavas and Kauravas. It includes the biographies and episodes of various other important people connected with the Bharatas besides folk-tales, legends and moral stories innumerable.
