Myths of Mankind: The Mahabharata (Ancient History Documentary)
Maha in Sanskrit means big and bharata refers to the great emperor Bharat, whose empire was known as Bharata varsa, and covered the entire world approximately five thousand years ago.
The center of this empire was the region known today as India.
As such, all aspects of India’s millennial (Vedic) culture are compiled in this important epic of the history of mankind.
This episode explores the myth of the Mahabharata, laying out the very roots of Indian mythology, religion and history.
The world’s greatest and longest know epic poem with 100,000 verses exceeds the Bible and all of Shakespeare’s plays put together.
The myth tells of the founding of civilisation and a protracted battle between the two wings of a royal family: the Pandavas and the Kauravas, bitterly opposed in a struggle for life and death.
