Mahabharata – Adi Parva
Om Namo Narayanaya. Om Gana Ganeshaya Namaha. Sri Saraswati Namostute.
I salute Narayana as Nara and Narayana. I salute Ganesha while I embark on writing the Mahabharata as a yatra, for I would attempt to explore the great epic written by Ganesha, thyself. I salute Goddess Saraswati in allowing me the ability, knowledge, understanding and the panorama of the Mahabharata.
embarking on the greatest yatra of all times – the yatra of the Mahabharata [Mahabharata: Adi Parva 0:0]
