Ch 297 - Anudyuta Parva

297 chapter (overall). Ch 72 of Sabha Parva
Reading of Chapter 297 (overall), chapter 72 (within the Sabha Parva)
(Anudyuta Parva: 28th Parva as per the 100-Parva classification; Sabha Parva: 2nd parva as per the 18-Parva classification)
(read from Mahabharata Volume 2 (The complete, unabridged Mahabharata)translated by Bibek Debroy)

Direct YouTube link to Ch 297:

The Anudyuta Parva is the 28th Parva as per the 100-parva classification of the Mahabharata, and is itself a part of Sabha Parva. The Sabha Parva is the second parva as per the 18-parva classification of the Mahabharata.

This is the last chapter in the Anudyuta Parva, and also the last chapter in the Sabha Parva.
In this chapter, Sanjaya asks Dhritarashtra the reason for his worries, and Dhritarashtra recounts the aftermath of the exile of the Pandavas, the ill-omens in the skies, the anger of the priests, the braying of animals, and more.

Thus ends Anudyuta Parva, and with it the Sabha Parva.

I have read this chapter from Vol.2 of Bibek Debroy's translation of the unabridged Mahabharata. You can find my review of the volume here.
