dc.description.abstract This paper analyses the actions of Mahabharat from the point of view of action science. From the point of view of action science, the source of the problem of Mahabharat is the undiscussable issue of who should be the king of Hastinapur. The paper then analyses the actions of different actors of this epic. It concludes that Yudhishthir displays the Model I governing value of `minimize generating or expressing negative feelings?. Duryodhan displays the Model I governing value of `maximize winning and minimize losing?. Vidur, Bhishm andDronacharya display the Model I governing value of `be rational?. Together these actors create the `limited learning system? of ModelO-I. The primary inhibitory loops created by this limited learning system finally lead to secondary inhibitory loop of polarisation of different actors into two groups and the emergence of win-lose group dynamics in the form of war as the only action which can settle the original undiscussable issue of who should be the king of Hastinapur. en_US
