The Mahabharat is a masterpiece of myth and legend and the greatest spiritual epic ever written in human history.
It was first written in Sanskrit about five thousand years ago by Maharishi Ved Vyas ji. It's an unmatchable saga, full of intrigue and finer insights into human nature. The book takes you through all of the events and circumstances that led to the war between two groups of cousins from the great Kuru family, the Pandavas and the Kauravas. The Mahabharat takes all aspects of human psychology and presents them to us in such a way that you don't just read it, you live it.
It is a myth that you should not read Mahabharat or keep it at home. Mahabharat is the only scripture that showcases relationships and family in their truest form and should be read by everyone. It highlights the flaws and imperfections of all its characters and how they deal with their flaws to fight for/against Dharm.
