My question is what is the proper spelling of the name for this document?

The first chapter and verse reads in Sanskrit as:

धृतराष्ट्र उवाच |
धर्मक्षेत्रे कुरुक्षेत्रे समवेता युयुत्सवः |
मामकाः पाण्डवाश्चैव किमकुर्वत सञ्जय ||1||

Why are there different translations of this verse?

In the next few days, I will becoming out with more information on this subject.

      Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind
     whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.
