The information was explained in Quora Answers with proofs. https://www.quora.com/Where-is-the-real-origin-book-of-Mahabharata (Read answer from Siva Kiran). The book "Dharma Sukshma" by Siva Kiran also confirms the fact in Chapter 12 (First Paragraph). It is causing lot of confusion because of this simple paragraph. Many internet articles are also spreading this misinformation. Only one paragraph the author could paste in the Quora information due to copyright issues. The entire story was also taken as Shri Krishna TV Serial Series by Ramanand Sagar, Episodes 05 (Raja Parikshit). Raja Parikshit is the father of Janamejaya. The remaining story line is correct.

Please change X the whole sentence, "It is first recited at Takshashila by the sage Vaiśampāyana,[1][2] a disciple of Vyāsa, to the King Janamejaya who is the great-grandson of the Pāṇḍava prince Arjuna." to Y "It is first recited at Takshashila by the sage Sukdev, the son of Vedavas, the original author of Mahabharata before the King Parikshit [3] [4]. Later, it is again recited by the sage Vaiśampāyana,[5][6] a disciple of Vyāsa, to the King Janamejaya who is the great-grandson of the Pāṇḍava prince Arjuna".

 Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. The key word here being Reliable. Quora is a site that users are also content providers while the two new sources added are a an apparently self-published book and Youtube, which is likewise not reliable.

Link proposal[edit]

I would replace the link to a Sanskrit Version with the article-series done by the current mystic Sadhguru, because there are insights and comments included, and it can give a deeper understanding of the circumstances... Like
