Mahabharata Epic – Out of the Past………… Into the Future


Text & Illustration of battle, circa 18th century


“Since the first Lord of the Rings was released, I knew it would only be a matter of time before someone was able to tell the story of the Mahabharata in a direct and engaging way that everyone could enjoy. Lucky for us Andy Fraenkel did just that. Andy stays true to the ancient themes and characters, but tells the story succinctly, effortlessly, and best of all, cinematically. I can’t wait until someone adapts Andy’s book Mahabharata: The Eternal Quest for the big screen. And hopefully, my name will be in the credits!”   Abhay Sofsky, Filmmaker,

“To condense the profound wisdom and rich culture of Mahabharata into a book of this size constitutes a formidable challenge. In this offering, Andy Fraenkel has distilled the essence of the expansive scripture and has skillfully crafted a book which is accessible and comprehensible to a universal audience.” Varshana Swami, Author & Vaisnava Scholar

“Thank you Andy for this wonderful book. As I sit here reading I feel whole regions of my mind and heart awaken.” Rasika Walkingfeather, Author

“A stirring and authentic version. He deserves much credit for this very enlightening book. My prayer is that his Mahabharata will be enjoyed, studied and appreciated by people for years to come.” Dr. Laxmi Narayan Chaturvedi M.D, Ohio Author, “The Teachings Of Bhagavat Gita”

“Such a great job – deep and flowing. You are truly gifted to share this profound story the way you have. Outstanding!” Krsnanandini Dasi, Author & Workshop Leader
