Jaiminiya Mahabharata (Ashvamedha Parva)

Course Description:
Apart from Vyasa’s version, there were three other versions of Mahabharata by Vyasa’s disciples namely Jaimini, Sumantu, and Paila for humans. Jaimini’s version is purely devotional and the only parva available in the modern age is full of highly intriguing stories pertaining to Ashvamedha sacrifice performed by Yudhisthira after the battle of Kuruksetra. Jaimini, being the acarya of sama veda, is outstanding in his poetically and devotionally rich presentation.

Course Contents:
Being aggrieved by the massacre of the battle of Kuruksetra, Yudhisthira wants to atone for the supposed sins that he thought he committed. He is advised by Srila Vyasadeva to perform Ashvamedha sacrifice, which he accepts. As a result, a special horse is dispatched to travel across the earth being protected by Arjuna and prominent and powerful warriors of Yadu dynasty. The horse travels to kingdoms of many, many mighty vaisnava kings who take the opportunities to please Krishna and Arjuna by their chivalry and purely devotional sentiments. Ultimately, Yudhisthira’s Ashvamedha sacrifice is performed by Krishna’s grace and Arjuna’s might.
