Mahabharata
摩诃婆罗多

The Mahabharata is an ancient Indian epic poem, one of two such works considered sacred scripture in Hinduism, the other being the Ramayana. The narrative of the Mahabharata covers the power struggle between the Pandavas and their cousins, the Kauravas, for control of the throne of Hastinapura. A second prominent theme of the text is the moral guidance of philosophical enquiry and devotional practice that is explored through the Pandavas' victory over the Kauravas. One chapter of the Mahabharata is the Bhagavad Gita, a philosophical discussion between the Pandava Prince Arjuna and Lord Krishna, avatar of Lord Vishnu that summarizes the full spirit of the Hindu tradition. Much of the text of the Mahabharata was compiled by the fourth century BCE, though it did not reach its present form until the fourth century CE.
“摩诃婆罗多”是古老的印度史诗,是两种被印度教认为是神圣经文中的其中之一,另外一种则是“罗摩衍那”(Ramayana)。“摩诃婆罗多”的叙事包括班度族和他们表兄弟之间的权力斗争,俱卢族对“象城”宝座的控制,以及班度族战胜俱卢族过程中道德的指导、哲学和信仰的文章。在“摩诃婆罗多”最有名的部分包含在“薄伽梵歌”中——这是班度族阿朱那王子与主奎师那之间的哲学讨论,这据说对印度教传统完整精神的总结。大部分的“摩诃婆罗多”文本编制于公元前4世纪,但它直到公元4世纪才变成了其目前的形式。
