Publisher's Summary

Why be good? What exactly is dharma? How does one practice it; and to what effect? Gurcharan Das’ superb exposition of the dilemmas and ambiguities inherent in the Mahabharata shows us how we can come to terms with the uncertain ethics of the world today - a world that is uncannily similar to that of the great epic.

A brilliant study of a difficult subject

Gurcharan Das Dwells on the different faces of dharma in this brilliantly researched book using the stories in the Mahabharata as the backdrop. A brilliant work which makes you rethink the way you understand things.
