Ilex Foundation Series #2


By: Kevin McGrath

This wonderful book introduces us to the great heroines of the Mahabharata, but it achieves much more. By moving between Sanskrit and English with the incisive grace of a poet, Kevin McGrath opens up the worlds of culture, language, and feminine power that shape India's greatest epic. This book is an intellectual delight for those who know Sanskrit, and for those who don't, and an insightful introduction to the words and worlds of India's most famous women, those epic women who live even today in the narratives of Hindu India.î Diana Eck, Harvard University, Professor of Comparative Religion and Indian Studies
