The good corridor relates probably the most seminal occasions of the epic, culminating within the recognized online game of cube among the P?ndavas and the K?uravas. The P?ndavas, fortunately settled in Indra·prastha, take pleasure in one excellent luck after one other. Yudhi·shthira, after erecting the main very good corridor in the world, comes to a decision to accomplish the Royal Consecration Sacrifice, that allows you to increase his prestige to that of the world's maximum sovereign. His brothers trip in every single place and triumph over all identified kingdoms. but simply while the P?ndavas are starting to look invincible, Yudhi·shthira mysteriously gambles every thing away in a fateful video game of cube to his cousin Dury?dhana.Co-published via manhattan college Press and the JJC FoundationFor extra in this name and different titles within the Clay Sanskrit sequence, please stopover at http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org
