Possibly the longest poem ever written, The Mahabharata is a Sanskrit epic set during a time of war, in which two clans in ancient Northern India clash over the throne of the Hastinapura empire. In following this dynastic struggle between the Kaurava and Pandava families, the difficult notion of a “just war” tests family loyalties and patriotic duty. The poem’s depiction of war and power also influenced later Buddhist concepts, and addresses basic philosophical questions about purpose, pleasure, freedom, and the ultimate goal of human life. Librivox has made this condensed version of the Mahabharata available on audio, with a solid narration that offers a valuable abridgment of this lengthy yet absolutely essential work of Indian literature. This abridgment runs about 6 hours in length.
