Quotes

Krishna: Do your duty. This is Karma Yoga. Understand it well! You can opt to do or not to do but that is the end of your right. You cannot control the result. You are an ace archer but if your target moves a little you'll miss it. You control your bow and vision but you cannot control the target. The true man does not cross his limits. Be steady and firm in your duty.

User Reviews

My favorite series of all time.
24 August 2005 | by nas_escobar04See all my reviews

This Mahabharata series was almost perfectly done from beginning to end. There are few moments when the script goes off course from the actual scripture, and the actors did an excellent job in portraying the mannerisms and likeness of the actual personalities, Shakuni, Bhishma and Krishna in particular. The story of Krishna's birth, Bhishma's vow, the Great War it's all in here. Absolutely fantastic series, it is very inspiring to children and to adults. Whenever I see this, it encourages me to learn more about Hinduism and such a powerful series deserves equal praise. A must-see for Hindus and non-Hindus alike, especially those who wish to learn more about the faith.
