The Mahābhārata


Welcome to the electronic text of the critical edition of the Mahābhārata.

The text of the Mahābhārata is available in three formats: Unicode Devanagari, Unicode Roman (using the conventions defined in ISO 15919), and ASCII (using the Harvard/Kyoto conventions).

(The files are in PC format (end-of-line is CR/LF), which should cause no problems to most non-PC users; those who expect to use grep or similar regular expression matching software should use one of the utilities available to replace CR/LF with LF.)
