The Mahabharata is one of the two major Indian hero-epics, The Ramayana being the other one. Mahabharata is usually attributed to the poet Vyasa. Mahabharata is nearly 3.000 years old and in size it is more than ten times larger than the Iliad and the Odyssey combined.
Besides its epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes, the Mahabharata contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four “goals of life” or purusharthas (12.161). Among the principal works and stories in the Mahabharata are the Bhagavad Gita, the story of Damayanti, an abbreviated version of the Ramayana, and the Rishyasringa, often considered as works in their own right.
