English term or phrase: "The Mahabarata"
Дословнуй перевод
zaika
Russian translation:"Махабхарата"
Explanation:
В оригинале пропущена буква "h" после "b". The name means "great [story of the] Bharatas." Bharata was an early ancestor of both the Pandavas and Kauravas who fight each other in a great war, but the word is also used generically for the Indian race, so the Mahabharata sometimes is referred to as "the great story of India."

Махабхарата


Explanation:

Махабхарата

Once I bought a book in Russian (this was some 10 years ago), which was called "Makhabharata. Kniga o Karne". I verified the name, and found over 8,000 examples with Махабхарата. Below is just a small number of my search results:

Below is also the definition of Mahabharata (it was spelt with an "h"), which I found in Webster's:

"an epic poem of India dealing mainly with the conflict between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, with many digressions: includes the Bhagavad-Gita."

Hope that this helps you,

Best regards,
