Description

Nala and Damayanti is a story of love. Written in Sanskrit, India's ancient holy language, and part of the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata, Nala and Damayanti reflects humanity, regardless of time or place. Through a breakdown of the work's syllable structure, Gerard L. Muller provides English speakers with a translation that makes the poetic aspects of Nala and Damayanti recognizable.
