Search entire Vyasa Mahabharata English from Ganguli's translation

For non-commercial PERSONAL studies purpose only. Not intended for redistribution. This search uses K.M. Gnguli's English Translation of Mahabharata of Vyasa (Krishna Dvaipayana). By and large, this translation is faithful to the original.

Note: Ganguli mostly used Bengal version of Vyasa Bharata. Bengal version seems to have sizable differences with the Bombay Version.

Eg. You get nothing if you type sairandhri in the above search window. This is because Ganguli used the word sairindhri. Bengal version might have used the word sairindhri.

Pl., now you type sairindhr in the above window and press search button, you will not only get 22 results about Draupadi in Virata's court, but also one result about the sairandhra and other castes/sub-castes in India of either Mahabharata times or the Gupta times. Hence: Pl. do not get disheartened if you do not get results. Pl. try slight variances of names or spellings.

Similarly you have to type vallav to search for Valala in the court of Virata. Vallav was the word used by Ganguli for Valala, for Bhimasena in the guise of cook.

Another example: Ganguli used the word 'Dushmanta' for 'Dushyanta'. It is possible that the Bengal version of Sanskrit Mahabharata might have had that usage. I shall try to give you a list of such VARIANTS IN SPELLING between the Sanskrit and English versions.

Suggestions: Type ballav in the search window to search for Valala (another name for Bhima sena working as cook in Virata's court). Else you may not get any result.

Is there any thing like 'your religion' and 'my religion'?

Question: Is there anything like 'your religion' and 'my religion'?

Ans: This is a beautiful question.

This 'your' and 'my/our/their' (these are all possessive adjectives) apply not only to religions, but also to so many objects and persons, we believe are mine/ours/yours/his/hers/theirs.

We can call this, 'sangam = attachment' philosophically.

Some attachments come by birth e.g. my mother, my child.
Some attachments come from close family members: father through mother, siblings through parents, friends through schools, neighborhoods, jobs, hobbies etc.
Some attachments come by instincts: breast-sucking, food, sleep, rest, sex, etc.
Attachment to religion:
Being born in a particular religion (some religions have sub-segments) is accidental.
Babies do not have castes, when born.
Parents, relatives, neighbors, teachers, Governments emboss, etch, impose and impress castes upon individuals. It is just like branding of bullocks and horses with hot iron. Or 'ear-tags', if we have to use a milder term.
Perceived benefits and threats of punishments of God and adherence/disobedience to religion are injected to the minds of children and adolescents.
A person becomes like a fly trapped in a spider's web, by the time heshe reaches an age of 20, with embedded biases.

rAgam (obsessive love) and dvEsham (obsessive hate), start occupying minds of youth, from this point.

Extensive reading of both sacred books, history and science books can help persons to find out facts for themselves, but this does not happen because minds are already closed.

We have some films. A child of X religion gets lost in a crowd. A childless couple of Y religion picks himher up and nourish himher in the traditions of Y religion. This child, when it grows up reacts like a person belonging to religion Y instead of religion X. The extent of his fanaticism to religion X and hatred towards religion Y depends upon the branding made by hisher parents, neighbors, community, society, Governments, schools and colleges, books, internet, ... so on.

Gist: The ideas of 'my religion' and 'your religion' are imaginary. But this sangam (attachment) is difficult to get rid of, just as a branded horse cannot get rid of its marks. I read in some American literature, that slaves used to be branded with irons in Europe and United States. We are like that.
