Mahabharata Pilgrimage won a Storytelling World Award

Mahabharata Pilgrimage

Mahabharata Pilgrimage

Listen! This is a taste of the exhilarating epic of the ancient Hindu clan, the Great Bharatas.
It is still very alive in India and performed in every medium from sculpture to television.
These are my favorite episodes which give the essence of the story:
The five splendid Pandavas brothers are competing for the rule of their kingdom against their scheming cousins.
The epic is full of love, lust, character, cleverness, myth, jealousy, devotion and enlightenment. To read more about the epic click here.
