Sacred-Texts: Hinduism

It is of immense importance to the culture of the Indian subcontinent, and is a major text of Hinduism. Its discussion of human goals artha or purpose, kama or pleasure, dharma The Mahabharata, Book 1: The object of a translator should ever be to hold the mirror upto his author.

That being so, his chief duty is to represent so far as practicable the manner in which his author’s ideas have been expressed, retaining if possible at the sacrifice of idiom and taste all the peculiarities of his author’s imagery and of language as well. In regard to translations from the Sanskrit, nothing is easier than to dish up Hindu ideas, so as to make them agreeable to English taste. But the endeavour of the present translator has been to give in the following pages as literal a rendering as possible of the great work of Vyasa.

Kisari Mohan Ganguli

To the purely English reader there is much in ganglui following pages that will strike as ridiculous. Those unacquainted with any language but their own are generally very exclusive in matters of taste. Having no knowledge of models other than what they meet with in their own tongue, the standard they have formed of maahbharata and taste in composition must necessarily be a narrow one.

The translator, however, would ill-discharge his duty, if for the sake of avoiding ridicule, he sacrificed fidelity to the original.

He must represent his author as he is, not as he should be to please the narrow taste of those entirely unacquainted with him. Ugrasrava, the son of Lomaharshana, surnamed Mohzn, well-versed in the Puranas, bending with humility, one day approached the great sages of rigid vows, sitting at their ease, who had attended the twelve years’ sacrifice of Saunaka, surnamed Kulapati, in the forest of Naimisha.


Those ascetics, wishing to hear his wonderful narrations, presently began to address him who had thus omhan at that recluse abode of the inhabitants of the forest of Naimisha. Having been entertained with due respect by those holy men, he saluted kissri Munis sages with joined palms, even all of them, and inquired about the progress of their asceticism. Then all the ascetics being again seated, the son of Lomaharshana humbly occupied the seat that was assigned to him.

Seeing that he was comfortably seated, and recovered from fatigue, one of the Rishis beginning the conversation, asked him, ‘Whence comest thou, O lotus-eyed Sauti, and where hast thou spent the time? Tell me, who ask thee, in detail. Nook0 pages. Published January 6th by Apps Publisher first published April 29th To mahabharaya what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Mar 04, Sidharth Vardhan rated it it was amazing Shelves: The translator begins by saying a lot of it may appear as non-sense and one can’t help agreeing – I don’t know if any other book uses as many adjectives with out any sense of proportion. Most minor characters are among a hundred other things; beautiful and have slender- waist if they are women, brave and kiaari shoulders if they are men and having highest asceticism if they are Brahmans.

I know it is beginning pages form first book and there are eighteen of them! What makes it more bearable is that it is full of shorter stories – which characters like telling each others. Feb 25, Firuza rated it it was ok. A collection of stories of the origins of four Indian castes and Gods, legends of wars for amrita and great deeds of Brahmans and the “twiceborn” heros.
