One of the most remarkable stories ever written in India, the Mahabharata touches on many different facets of human existence. The novel imparts various ethical principles pertinent to our contemporary mechanistic culture. The teaching conveys that Dharma consistently prevails over Adharma. We must align ourselves with the principles of Dharma and exert our efforts towards achieving greatness. The combination of our impatience and intense desire will ultimately erode our state of calmness and lead to our downfall. This excerpt from the Mahabharata offers a glimpse into the inevitability of Dharma-yuddha, highlighting Arjuna’s perplexity at the beginning of the struggle and the subsequent resolution provide d by Master Krishna. The Bhagavad Gita is a conversation between Arjuna and the sovereign Krishna. An analysis is conducted on particular sections of the Bhagavad Gita, and their similarities and differences are examined with other religious texts.
