The Mahabharata- A Hindu Poem

This scroll, written in Sanskrit, is a small portion of the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata is a Hindu epic poem describing the Aryan struggle through a princes eyes as they moved into India and Hinduism was created. It is seen by Hindus to be as much a text about dharma (their responsibilities) as it is about the history of the Aryans. Still, it provides important information about how the Aryans moved into India, and the war that broke out when they did.
