It is famously said of the Mahabharata that "Everything is found in the Mahabharata. What is not found here, cannot be found anywhere else." Mahabharata provides us with a powerful narrative exploring the complexities of life and a framework of Dharma (among other concepts) that helps resolve the apparent conflicts and contradictions of modern-day existence. With better understanding and insights we would become better equipped to face the challenges of life and be successful. With our success, we impact the success of our immediate community, nation and the world at large.
