Mahābharata astrological phenomena

E-mail Print PDF

Mahābharata, a work of Śrī Vedavyāsa, is an Ithihasa, or account of former events, on the epic battle which laid the foundation for the current era or Kali Yuga. Dating Mahābharata has been attempted by several scholars in modern times. Attempts have been made using archaeology, historical accounts, and most prominently Jyotish, i.e. astrology and astronomy. The dating of the Mahābharata is an important exercise for astrologers as the event succeeded the births of several celestial incarnations such as the five Pandavas, Śrī Balarāma and most prominently Śrī Kṛṣṇa himself.
