Excerpt From The Book

“The Rishi Vyasa published this mass of knowledge in both a detailed and an abridged form. It is the wish of the learned in the world to possess the detail and the abridgment.

Some read the Bharata beginning with the initial mantra (invocation) others with the story of Astika, others with Uparichara, while some Brahmanas study the whole.

Men of learning display their various knowledge of the institutes in commenting on the composition. Some are skillful in explaining it, while others in remembering its contents.

“The wisdom of this work, like unto an instrument for applying collyrium, hath opened the eyes of the inquisitive world, blinded by the darkness of ignorance.

As the sun dispelleth the darkness so doth the Bharata by its discourses on religion, profit, pleasure, and final release dispel the ignorance of men.

As the full moon by its mild light expandeth the buds of the water-lily, so this Puran, by exposing the light of the Sruti hath expanded the human intellect.

By the lamp of history, which destroyeth the darkness of ignorance, the whole mansion of the womb of nature is properly and completely illuminated.

The Mahabharata: A Criticism By C V Vaidya


WEBER observes: “The first evidence of the existence of an epic with the contents of the Mahabharata comes to us from Rhetor Dion Chrysostom who flourished in the second half of the first century A.D.

Since Megas this says nothing of this epic, it is not an improbable hypothesis that its origin is to be placed between Megasthenes and Chrysostom.”

Weber, the only blemish of whose deep and really wonderful research is a kind of bias, has here forgotten that we have not the work of Megasthenes before us.

That most valuable book has been lost. It is only from fragments of it quoted by others that we get some information about India as it was in 300 B.C.
