Each Friday, we are watching Mahabharata with the discussion after.....
Quite simply, the Mahābhārata is a powerful and amazing text that inspires awe and wonder.
It presents sweeping visions of the cosmos and humanity and intriguing and frightening glimpses of divinity.
The Mahābhārata definitely is one of those creations of human language that will eventually take its rightful place on the highest shelf of world literature beside Homer's epics, the Greek tragedies, the Bible, Shakespeare, and similarly transcendent works.
The Mahābhārata or Mahābhāratam is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Rāmāyaṇa. It narrates the struggle between two groups of cousins in the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pāṇḍava princes and their successors.
It also contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four "goals of life" or puruṣārtha.
