This study examines the fundamental philosophical facets of Rajdharma, as stated in the epic Mahabharata by Ved Vyasa. The study tries to uncover Vyasa’s thoughts on social justice and their contemporary relevance by focusing on the topics of equality and inclusivity. The paper examines the concept of society structure, governance principles, and ethical considerations in Rajdharma by examining its complexities. The analysis delves into Vyasa’s critique of the caste system, his view on gender equality, and the economic and social inclusion mechanisms he suggests. The research aims to understand the theoretical foundations and practical implications of Rajdharma in promoting a just and inclusive society through an in-depth examination of Vyasa’s story. This study highlights the ongoing debate on governance ethics and social justice by linking ancient knowledge to contemporary issues in the pursuit of a harmonious and fair society order.
