About the Book

Mairavanacaritam appears to be an independent work of Maharsi Jaimini included in the Jaimini Bharata not elaiming connection with any of the parvas. In Mairavana Hanuman builds a rampart with his tail of which neither end can be seen Mairavana abducts Rama who is rescued by Hanuman.

Sahasramukhacaritam Claims to be a part of the Asramavasa parva of the Jaiminiya Mahabharata. It begins with Janmejaya’s queries following the return of Sita and her sons to Rama. Here Sita proceeds to kill the thousand-headed Ravana who had defeated all gods and Rama.

Foreword

The Mahabharata, the great epic of India had played an important role in shaping up ancient Indian religion, philosophy, mythology and politics. The content of the epic was embraced differently in various places through passage of time resulting in variations of the great epic across India and beyond.

Dr. Pradip Bhattacharya had discovered several palm-leaf manuscripts in Grantha script in the Oriental Manuscripts Library and Research Centre, Chennai ascribed to the lost jaimini Bharata. In the Mahabharata there is reference to Vyasa asking his four disciples and his son Shuka, after he had taught them his composition of the Mahabharata, to prepare their own editions. What is available in print is the version recited by Vaishampayana and only one parva of the Ashvamedha by Jaimini.

Dr. Bhattacharya and Maj.Gen. Shekhar Kumar Sen took up this gigantic task of transcribing Mairavanacharitam and Saharsramukha Ravanacharitam from Grantha manuscripts into Devanagari. They have prepared the critical edition of these two texts and translated them into English in verse. The importance of these unpublished manuscripts of Jaimini Bharata has been elaborately explained in the Introduction. No one else could possibly have handled this difficult task in a better way. Our sincere thanks also goes to the Publisher, Mis New Bharatiya Book Corporation.

We do hope that this publication will make available to scholars a rare find and encourage further research into such other manuscripts by Jaimini.
