The Mahabharata, an ancient and vast Sanskrit poem, is a remarkable collection of epics, legends, romances, theology, and ethical and metaphysical doctrine. The core of this great work is the epic struggle between five heroic brothers, the Pandavas, and their one hundred contentious cousins for rule of the land. This is the first volume in what will ultimately become a multi volume edition encompassing all eighteen books.ContentsPrefaceThe Mahabharata: IntroductionSpelling and Pronunciation of SanskritThe Mahabharata: SummaryThe Mahabharata TranslatedBook 1.
