Krishna Dharma brings a modern perspective on the ancient Sanskrit epic the Mahabharata.
The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramaya?a. It narrates the struggle between two groups of cousins in the Kurukshetra War, the fates of the Kaurava and the Pa??ava princes and their succession, and highlights the central figure of the epic, Sri Krishna, an incarnation of the Godhead.
The Mahabharata also contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four "goals of life" or puru?artha. Among the principal works and stories in the Mahabharata are the Bhagavad Gita, the story of Damayanti, an abbreviated version of the Ramaya?a, and the story of ??yasringa, often considered as pivotal works in their own right.
