Moral Dilemmas In The Mahabharata
Moral Dilemmas In The Mahabharata
Description
From the Jacket

The essays in this book treat the Mahabharata from an unusual angle fastening on the moral dilemmas it presents. How universal are the dilemmas faced by the characters in the story, and are the dilemmas in fact resolved? In dealing with these questions the discussions range over the meaning of the purucarthas the institutions of marriage and the family institutions of marriage and the family the concept of action in the Gita and the special predicaments faced by Draupadi Arjuna and others. These studies invite the scholar to reflect afresh on an epic text and encourage the general reader to find in epic literature much that is relevant to life today.
