One of the two Sanskrit epic poems, the Mahabharata recounts the conflict between the Kaurava and Pandava princesses. Compiled by Sage Vyasa, who is also the scribe of the Vedas, it is considered the longest poem ever written. Beginning with the origin of the two families, the poem follows the lives of the five sons of King Pandu and their bitter rivalry with their cousin Duryodhana, son of King Dhritarashtra. During a rigged game of dice, Yuddhishtra, the oldest Pandava brother, gambles away everything he owns—including himself and his family—to Duryodhana, resulting in the exile of the five Pandava brothers and their wife Draupadi. The Mahabharata chronicles the events and adventures during the Pandava’s exile, eventually culminating in the return of the Pandavas and the brutal Battle of Kurukshetra. Despite their hesitation to fight their own family and friends, the Pandavas eventually defeat the Kauravas with the help and guidance of Lord Krishna.
