Default Mahabharata (Hinduism)

"The Mahabharata" (India) is an ancient Hindu text written by the great poet Vyasa. The text is an iconic war scroll which presents the story of a prestigious and mighty Hindu family torn apart by ambition and internal feuds.

Two bands of brothers are pitted against each other and great Hindu gods such as Shiva and Krishna come to offer advice and guidance and relief.

"The Mahabharata" (Vyasa) offers teachings about the necessity of war in creating resolution of arguments that seem to have no peaceful alternative.

We are offered an idea about the practicality of war and compelled to analyze the beneficiality of power-themed deeds in times of ignorance. For example, when people commit crimes due to temporary insanity and there is no known treatment for their condition, they may be incarcerated instead of institutionalized to protect society. Likewise, war is no different.

As in Hollywood (USA) movies such as "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013), this ancient text offers street-wise procedures and prescriptions for humanist reactions to prosperity requirements that are at once ominous and judicious.

While "The Mahabharata" (Vyasa) offers lyrical advice about other areas of life requiring wisdom such as parenthood, education, and diligence, like "The Illiad" (Homer) from Ancient Greece, it is primarily a meditation on the values of war.
