Glimpses from Life & Times of Baba BAKHORAN DASS – MAHABHARATA as told by Dr. Devi Dutt Pattanayak

The MAHABHARATA is actually the consequence of expression of agony made by the Earth to The Lord – VISHNU. It is narrative and cannot be seen in isolation. It has got 18 sections. The epic contains 100000 verses, making it larger than the Greek epics ILIAD and ODYSSEY put together. As per Hindu tradition, validation of human existence has got four aspects – Dharma Artha Kama, and Moksh. To me, MAHABHARATA is not only a complete epic, it is a way of life.
