Jaiminiya Ashvamedha Parva, Mahabharata

Shekhar Kumar Sen (Author) Pradip Bhattacharya (Editor)

The book has 68 chapters (5147 verses) consisting of twenty-two episodes, many of which contain very interesting sub-tales. The text is overwhelmingly martial It contains the adventures of the horse passing throught various kingdoms. Some kings seized the horse and fought with the escort while some let it pass. Jaimini's composition is also lavishly soaked in bhakti. It is a good example of the blend of the two rasas, bhakti and vira, where even the violence, the animus, is bron from bhakti- worship the Lord as an enemy. The interesting part of the story is that at almost all the places, Arjuna and Krishna get roundly defeated by their adversaries whereas in vyasa's Mahabharata Arjuna has an easy passage, except in Manipura where he is killed by his son and then recived by Ulupi, his wife.
