Messages from Mahabharat

Author Name: Murti Yerrapragada | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

This book, Messages from Mahabharat, presents the epic story of Mahabharat in simple English. After editing the Scriptures, the great sage created this wonderful epic to convey the underlying essence of Vedas using the story medium. Mahabharat is thus known as the ‘Panchama Vedam’, the fifth Veda. Addressing a group of scholar sages led by Kulapati Shounaka Maharshi, Ugrasravas, a talented storyteller, narrates the story of Mahabharat in the setting of a forest known as Naimisharanyam. The sages were conducting a long Yagnam. During one of the breaks of this Yagnam, they wanted to hear a new, unheard, enlightening and entertaining story. 

The epic unfolds a series of legendary events, culminating in the famed Kurukshetra War, and beyond. Running close to Vyasa’s original story, the book presents the entire epic story with all relevant features including many sub-stories and details of the eighteen-day war.  

Starting from the early origins of the Chandra Dynasty, the story revolves around the lives of the children of Kings Dhritarastra and Pandu. The detailed conduct of these main players and others portrays a wide spectrum of human behavioral traits.
