Description

The Maha·bharata tells the tale of the epic battle between the Pandavas and the Kauravas for the thrown. It begins with the famous game of dice between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, which sets the scene for the war that will lie at the center of the Maha·bharata epic. But even after the war is ostensibly over when the heroic but flawed king of the Kauravas is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch enemy, the extended family is still wracked in conflict leaving survivors, victors and vanquished struggling to comprehend their loss. Perhaps the most enigmatic philosophical text from ancient India, the final book in the set, "The Book of Liberation" is presented as the teachings of Bhishma as he lies dying on the battlefield in the aftermath of war.
