The ascetics ask about his last pilgrimages and Suta tells of having witnessed a great sacrifice, during which Vaishampayana, one of the disciples of the famous Vyasa, tells the wonderful story called Maha-bharata. Saunaka asks Suta to faithfully repeat everything he has heard, and the latter willingly accepts. Thus began the Maha-bharata of Vyasa, one of the most magnificent works that humanity has ever seen.
