The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramayana. Besides its epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes, the Mahabharata contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four "goals of life" or purusharthas. Maharshi Vyas wrote the Mahabharata, an epic which touches all aspects of human life and is filled with knowledge. The original epic was written in poetic format or verses.
