The main reason for the publication of this part of the website, is to make you (the reader) aware of the Mystery of the Mahabharata and its various parts.
The Mahabharata is so widely known as a great and fascinating story of ancient India, that perhaps an apology is needed for interpreting it as a picture of pure Philosophy. But I hope lovers of the story would find their interest enhanced and no diminished by this presentation. It has, however, been suggested to me to indicate the best manner of approach to the subject. For obvious reasons I have had to refer to Vedic literature, Upanishads, and the Systems of Hindu Philosophy, and base the whole idea of the work on principles, energies, and laws; for this is what the Mahabharata really is. But I have tried to be as simple and concrete as possible. The reader would be well advised in going through the Introduction first, and acquainting himself with the principles, of the Six Systems of Hindu Philosophy as soon as possible; and when this is done, he would find the interpretation of the Story easier than he imagines. Should he, however, find it difficult to grasp the idea of the Systems of Philosophy all at once, he might glance through them, and pass on to the Construction of the Story of the Mahabharata, and return to the philosophical Systems afterwards. Once he has realized that the Story is a picture of Philosophy, it would be easy for him to understand the idea of the whole.
Then it is necessary to have an elementary idea of the form, structure and action of the organic Cell; for it is the Cell that constitutes the basis of all theories and speculations of the Hindus, from the tiniest forms of life to Brahmanda, the Golden Egg of the Creator of the universe. This is explained in some detail, and also the principal Systems of Hindu Philosophy. When the reader has grasped the idea of the Cell, he would find how easy it is to construct upon it the whole fabric of Hindu Science, Philosophy, and Religion. As the subject is new, and its conclusions wide and far reaching, I have thought it necessary to limit myself severely to facts, and would ask the reader to bear with me for any omissions of style. I hope he would be convinced that the Sacred Books of the Hindus are pictures of systems of thought, written in a peculiar form or Sanskrt. In any case nothing is more valuable than understanding criticism in a work of this character.
