While the compilation is not exhaustive, most of the key or representative passages have been included in this compilation. The contents are from Mahabharata epic excluding the Bhagavad Gita.
I hope the readers will find the document of some use in their study on these topics.
I have extracted these contents from my other comprehensive & unique work on Mahabharata called Mahabharata–Spectroscope. Whereas the material in that was included in the order in which it appears in the original epic, in this compilation I have grouped them by meaningful Topics & Sub-topics thus making it much more useful to the student/scholar of this subject. Some passages have been expanded by including material from the original epic.
