This book presents the social message of the Mahabharata in the form of a ten-point call for the good for all. Since this message is primarily given, in the terminology of lokasamgraha, in Bhagavad-Gita (which is the centre-piece of the Mahabharata) the technique of presentation adopted here is Gita-supportive, i.e. indirect as well as selective.
