Description

Back of The Book

This book contains all Sri Aurobindo's independent prose writings on the Mahabharata, as well as all his translation of passages from the epic, including the first six chapters of the bhagavad Gita. in his main essay, Sri Aurobindo examines Vyasa's poetic style brings out his "peculiar appeal to humanity."

"Vyasa is the most masculine of writers. He has that is to say the masculine qualities restraint, dignity, indifference to ornament, strength without ostentation, energy economised, a strong, pure and simple taste, a high & great spirit, more than any writer I know.

"The style of this powerful writer is perhaps the one example in literature of strength in its purity; a strength undefaced by violence & excess yet not weakened by flagging and negligence."

Publisher's Note

This book contains all Sri Aurobindo's independent prose writings on the Mahabharata, as well as all his translations of passages from the epic. These writings and translations were done at various times between 1893 and 1902, when Sri Aurobindo was living in Baroda. A few paragraphs on the Mahabharata, written in Pondicherry in 1920, have been included in an appendix.

The essays and translations in this book (with the exception of the Gita translation) were first published together in 1991 in a book titled On the Mahabharata. The present work is a revised version of that book, brought out under a new title.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
