Intended to be a treatise on life itself, this epic poem embraces religion and ethics, polity and government, philosophy and the pursuit of salvation. This collection of more than 4,000 verses is supplemented by a glossary, genealogical tables, and an index correlating the verses with the original Sanskrit text.

Library Journal

This current translation of the epic poem (no one's exactly sure who wrote it or when it first appeared) includes two new verses as well as a new preface and a glossary, genealogical tables, and an index correlating the verses with the original Sanskrit text. A lot of bang for the buck, though more for scholarly collections.
