Transmission of the Mahabharata Tradition: Vyasa and Vyasids (Studies in Indian and Asian Civilizations)
Description
About the Book:

The Mahabharata is the mighty Ganga taking its rise in the lofty Himalaya of a great poet's genius: its crystal clear waters in the course of their flow are joined by the rivers and streams of other legends, episodes and philosophical thinking, until incorporating and assimilating all these tributaries the original serene stream transforms itself into a mighty torrent flowing through the plains of time fertilizing the fields of literatures in Sanskrit, prakrit and modern Indian Languages: and, helping to carryon the trade of thought with exchange of ideas in the whole of India and outside, and keeping at the same time its sanctifying character it passes on to the Ocean of Eternity. The task that the author has set for himself is to analyze and examine, to the extent hat is possible, and the waters the tributaries have brought to the holy river.
