The Mahabharata is the longest poem ever written in the world with 200,000 individual verses in 18 Chapters.

Bhagavad Gita appears in the middle of Mahabharata. It is ten times lengthier than Iliad and Odyssey Combined. Mahabharata is actually tremendously vast volume, and no human would be capable of writing that.

Sage Narada insisted that Rishi Veda Vyasa who has written many wonderful books should also write Mahabharat epic to help common man to understand subtle truths of the universe. So, Rishi Veda Vyasa sought the help of Lord Ganesha to write down what he was saying. “The instant you stop reciting, I will cease writing forever,” declared Lord Ganesha. Okay, I’ll agree to your requirements as long as you fully comprehend all I say before you write, remarked Rishi Veda Vyasa. They both concurred and penned the famous epic Mahabharata.
