About original shlokas of Mahabharat
Mahabharat that it has only 10,000 shlokas written by Vyas Muni ji which are true. Uptil now, Mahabharat has about one lakh twenty thousand shlokas i.e., about one lakh ten thousand shlokas are fictitious which have been added. I also paste here one of my articles —
There is a statement by King Bhoj in his book “Sanjeevini” about which Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati too states:
“Vyasji wrote 4400 shlokas of mahabharat to which another 5,600 authentic shlokas were added by the disciples of Vyasji. During the reign of Maharaja Vikramaditya another 20,000 shlokas were added. Further Maharaja Bhoj says that during the reign of his father 25,000 and during half of his life time 30,000 more shlokas have been added to the Mahabharat book. If this process of addition of shlokas continues then the time is not far when Mahabharat book would have to be compared to the burden loaded on a camel.”
There have been false additions to Mahabharat epic from time to time. Regarding this Kashinath Rajvade writes:
“The present Mahabharat is a corrupt and enlarged edition of the ancient Mahabharat. This ancient work has been diluted from time to time with all sorts of additions and has grown in proportion on that account.”
Pure ten-thousand shlokas existing in Mahabharat epic is available with :-

Secondly, it is a true story and must be read by all human –beings. It has been wrongly told that if Mahabhart epic will be kept in home, it will create problem.
