It remains to be seen what verses have been removed from this self-declared
'vaiShNava' version of the Mahabharata.

One expedient way of 'samanvaya' would be presumably to just censor all
inconvenient truths and references praising Shiva as jagatkAraNam
And verses of obvious Non-dual import.  Hopefully they don't resort to such
