Here is the complete Mahabharata translated into English prose directly from the original sanskrit text by Pratap Chandra Roy. Each of the 12 volumes are about 500 pages and they are huge files, so please be patient when downloading. The Mahabharata is one of the two major Indian hero-epics, The Ramayana being the other one. Mahabharata is usually attributed to the poet Vyasa. Mahabharata is nearly 3.000 years old and in size it is more than ten times larger than the Iliad and the Odyssey combined. If you are looking for the Bhagavad Gita, which is a part of the Mahabharata, you can find our selections of Gita’s here: Bhagavad Gita. We also have the Mahabharata in a single volume ebook, the comprehensive Ganguli translation of the Mahabharata – if you prefer just one huge file. If you happen to have the Mahabharata in Hindi, Marathi or Kannada, please send it to me and I will publish it here.
