About the book



As heroic literature, the Mahabharata is concerned with both human and divine worlds, human enterprise (Pursuakara) and divine ordination (daiva). The tension between these two realms is resolved at certain crucial points, one such pointing being the dramatic visual revelation of a god to an epic hero. Once he has seen the majesty of God ( Bhagavagita 11), Arjuna is able to submit himself to his task in a tragic but necessary war of destruction, the war that ends the Yuga and gives birth to a new age.
