The Mahabharata is one of the cherished heritages of the whole Hindu world and forms the basis of a Hindu's thoughts and his moral and ethical ideas. It is a sublime poem that shows the triumph of virtue and defeat of vice. This book presents this great epic in simple language for children.

The Mahabharata contains the story of a race descended from King Bharata. Maha means great, and Bharata means the descendants of Bharata. Mahabharata means Great India, or the story of the great descendants of Bharata. Earlier this story was published in five volumes under the title 'Mahabharata for Children'. Now, all these five volumes are combined together and published.
