Every person deviates from the path of righteousness in his lifetime, and for all these sins big or small, he has to pay?either during his present life or in some future rebirth. So, also, are his good deeds harvested. The cycle of Karma continues inexorably, far beyond our understanding? This book takes us beyond the familiar reading of the great epic, moving away from a chronological recounting of events, to focus on the greater scheme of things by which each of these incidents is linked in a causal relationship, and therefore, had to happen exactly the way they did. The story of Mahabharata unravels over aeons, spanning heaven, earth and hell; intricately weaving gods and demons, sages and humans, birth and rebirth all into one majestic tapestry through the law of Karma?whereby every action reaps its fruit at some point in time, no matter who the doer is. Erring gods are cursed by human sages, great demons earn boons from gods, ordinary folk earn blessings or curses, and gods take birth as humans when so ordained! Mahabharata and the Marvellous Cycle of Boons, Curses and Vows explores the complexity of the greatest epic of all time, and takes the reader far beyond the story of the Kurukshetra war.
