Mahabharata: About Grief

Mahabharata: About Grief

Mahabharata : About Grief is a compilation of the contents appearing in the great epic Mahabharata about Grief, a frequently occurring experience which shakes up human beings.  The broader topics are: What is grief, Nature of grief, Causes & types of grief, Causes & remedies, Effects/Consequences of grief, How to handle/manage grief, Some characters & their grief and Lokas without grief.

The compilation is not exhaustive in the sense that every para appearing in the great epic is not included here for the sake of limiting the size of this document. But still most of the key or representative passages have been compiled here.

I have extracted these contents from my other comprehensive & unique work on Mahabharata called MahabharataSpectroscope. 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.

I hope the readers will find the document of some use in understanding & managing grief.

Please see under Menus ‘Mahabharata’ & ‘More Compilations’ for my other topic based compilations based on Mahabharata.
