640 Million Men Killed in Kuruksetra

Postby bhaktarichard » Monday 22 January 2018, 0:03

Dear Guru Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to You and Srila Prabhupada.

This line is from the purport to SB 1.8.46...

" It is said in the Mahābhārata, Ādi-parva (2.25) that 640,000,000 men were killed in the eighteen days of the Battle of Kurukṣetra, and some hundreds of thousands were missing. Practically this was the greatest battle in the world within five thousand years."

I have a very hard time believing that this many men were killed in the battle. Is there anything you can say to help convince me that this is true?

Or is this just a figurative statement? Like an exageration to emphasize how serious the battle was?


Your servant
