The Mahabharata is a great epic. It is one of the greatest epics in the world. Vyasa isthe author. He was a great inani (one who has realized God) and a Maharshi. The Mahabharata War was fought between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Vyasa had seen the Pandavas and the Kauravas from the time of their grandfather and he had helped that clan very often. He knew all about the Mahabharata War. Vyasa was thinking of dictating the epic, the Mahabharata, to some one.
But he wanted some one capable of writing fast and without mistakes. Brahma decided that Ganapati was the only person equal to this great task. He sent Lord Ganesha. He came to Vyasa and said, ” Bhagavan, I will take down the story of the Mahabharata.” Vyasa said, “My dear Ganesha, I shall dictate the poem quite fast. Can you take down without any mistakes? Ganesha threw a challenge in return: “
Bhagavan, I shall write as fast as you dictate and that, correctly. But once you start dictating you should not stop till you complete it. Do you agree?; Vyasa Maharshi accepted the challenge so it is called aVyasa Mahabharata Story.
After they had come to this agreement, Vyasa went on dictating the story and Ganapati wrote down what he said. So the world got the great epic.
