We are taken with them on an extraordinary journey, meeting sages, kings, demons, heroines, and celestial beings.

Culminating in the greatest war of all time, Mahabharata is a masterpiece of adventure, intrigue, romance, and spiritual wisdom.

Editorial Reviews

Joseph Ray
As we enter the third millennium, the Mahabharata is an intriguing, useful, and formidable companion. Its truths are unassailable, its relevance beyond dispute, and its timelessness absolute.
James F. DeRoche
Dharma’s Mahabharata is very readable, its tone elevated without being ponderous. Though condensed, it still runs to more than 900 pages and would interest all serious students of Hinduism. Recommended for academic libraries and public libraries with collections on religion.
Mahesh Nair
Rarely, if ever, has an ancient epic received such modern blockbuster treatment…The narrative moves effortlessly, often as racily as a thriller, without compromising the elevated style and diction. The visual imagery is every bit as impressive as anything achieved in the cinematic editions.
James Meek
With its intense love scenes, jeweled palaces, vast battles, superheroes, magical weapons, and warring families, this novelized version resembles a 20th century saga-cum-soap opera, a marriage of Barbara Taylor Bradford and Arthur Hailey.
Rachel Styer
When I dove into the Mahabharata I expected something along the lines of a dry Arabian Knights, but what I got was something else! Once I began to read, I just could not tear my mind away from the book. Even as I write this, my mind lingers on the glorious spiritual Indian mythology captured on its pages. If you are looking for a cross between Arthurian legends and cultural epic spiked with romance, and overarching spiritual guidance, Mahabharata is for you. Aside from the wonderful magical tale
