Books Info:

A Mahabharata Companion free pdf The great epic tale of the Mahabharata, perhaps the world's longest book, tells the tale of the Pandava brothers and the great battle of Kurukshetra. Although filled with wonderful stories that exemplify eternal truth, it is not easy for a modern reader to read from cover to cover. Arthur Farndell's Companion has been compiled to act as a friend and guide to this great book. There are summaries of each 'parva' or chapter, an index of themes and subjects ('Where's What') and an index of characters ('Who's Who'). With this Companion one may enter the realm of the Mahabharata as into a maze, holding a thread that will lead us through the text with confidence and enjoyment. It also serves those who wish only to dip in and read the key sections, such as the spiritual gem, the Bhagavad Gita.
