Our religious text-books play an important role in benefiting society as well as in upholding the values in it. The Vedas, the Ramayana, the Gita, the Puranas and the Mahabharata are some of our ancient religious texts that have been guiding us for ages towards the development of a better society.
A God – fearing person on his own desists himself from doing wrong, as he is aware of the omnipresence of the Lord. Our religious texts make one aware of one’s duties and of the principles of Dharma or righteous a strong aversion to doing wrong. This is what these ancient texts try to teach us.
As the original texts are too voluminous, we have presented their essence in the form of unique quiz books, which not only enrich the mind with the knowledge of Hinduism but also enlighten the reader on the philosophical concepts of Hinduism. The Volume – I in your hand pertains to the epic Mahabharata written by the great sage Veda Vyasa. It contains the Opening Canto, the Royal Court Canto and the Forest Canto. These Cantos satiate the curiosity of the inquisitive mind quite thoroughly.
Still all details cannot be included in a quiz book. Those desirous of getting to the very narrative of the text should read the Mahabharata, published by Dreamland Publications. We would like to welcome any constructive suggestions to make our books more useful and interesting to one and all.
