Mahabharata is ‘one of the greatest books in the world’, says Dr. Annie Besant, in the Introduction to this book.  It is the story of the Indian race some five thousand years ago and includes an account of the epic war between the Pandavas and Kauravas, two groups descended from King Bharata, from whom India takes its name, Bharata.  Dr. Besant describes The Mahabharata as a great teacher of ethics and philosophy, and it is also history.  The original in Sanskrit verse, Dr. Besant says ‘is the greatest poem in the world.  There is no other poem so splendid as this, so full of what we want to know, and of what is good for us to study.
