Of the two the Mahabharata is in essence the older, its nuclear story having been transmitted from the shadowy period following the composition of the Rig Veda, the oldest literature of India. A few of the names of rulers, sages and priests mentioned in the Mahabharata also occur in sources of the later Vedic period, and the story of the epic may have developed around traditions of a great battle which took place about 900 B.C.
