MAHABHARATA 9 SHALYA 2

MAHABHARATA 9 SHALYA 2
$22.00

In one of the most famous passages in Maha-bhárata, Dur-yódhana, the heroic but flawed king of the Káuravas, meets his end when he is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch-enemy, Bhima. Framing a fascinating account of the sacred sites along the river Sarásvati, the duel poignantly portrays the downfall of a once great hero in the face of a new order governed by Krishna, in which the warrior code is brushed aside in order to ensure the predestined triumph of the Pándavas.
