The Mahabharata

with Shambhavi Sarasvati

Welcome to our weekly exploration of the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata is a dramatic, lyrical, sexy, magical and deeply spiritual tale. Its subjects are pride, self-realization and the rise and fall of ignorance and wisdom in human lives and history. You can listen to the first and the latest episode here. Annual pass holders have access to the entire series through the end of 2017.
