Re-ending the Mahabharata: the rejection of Dharma in the Sanskrit epic, General ed. by Wendy Doniger

Re-ending the Mahabharata: the rejection of Dharma in the Sanskrit epic, General ed. by Wendy Doniger

Shalom, Naama

Edited/Translated by: SUNY series in Hindu Studies

Series: Offers a fresh perspective on the Mahabharata based on an exploration of its ending, the Svargarohana parvan. This book challenges two prevalent assumptions about the Mahabharata: that its narrative is inherently incapable of achieving a conclusion and that its ending, the Svargarohana;parvan, is an extraneous part of the text. While the exegetic traditions have largely tended to suppress, ignore, or overlook the importance of this final section, Shalom argues that the moment of the condemnation of dharma that occurs in the Svargarohana parvan, expressed by the epic protagonist, Yudhisthira, against his father, Dharma, is of crucial importance.
