Our 19-Volume Mahabharata Completed
We are happy to announce that our 19-volume Mahabharata project is now completed, close to 13 years after Professor P. Lal passed away. The Anuśāsana Parva (Volume XIII), translated by Dr Pradip Bhattacharya, was released in October 2023, marking the end of this massive undertaking.
“At the request of Ananda Lal, I was able to complete the very difficult task of translating the Mokshadharma portion of the Sānti Parva (2016). A welcome opportunity to continue my daksinā arose when he handed me P. Lal’s copy of the Gita Press Anuśāsana Parva volume and asked me to complete the last volume of the project—a signal honour and a great challenge. The guru-daksinā is now complete,” Dr Bhattacharya explains in his foreword.
