Valmiki's Ramayana is believed to be the first poetic work written in Sanskrit; it is, therefore, referred to as the Adikavya. It is said that Brahma assured Valmiki that "as long as the mountains stand and the rivers flow, so long shall the Ramayana be read by men". In the Puranas, Rama is described as an avatar of Vishnu, but Valmiki does not refer to him as God. The few verses which do so are considered interpolations. The Ramayana consists of 24,000 verses. There are six sections - The Bala Kanda, the Ayodhya Kanda, the Aranya Kanda, the Kishkindha Kanda, the Sundara Kanda and the Yuddha Kanda. The seventh section, the Uttara Kanda, is probably an interpolation. Valmiki's monumental work influenced other great poems on the same theme. Among these are the Hindi, Tamil and Bengali versions of the Ramayana written by Tulsidas in the North; Kamban in the South; and Krittivasa in the East. The Ramayana has made a deep and abiding impact. Bas reliefs and paintings depicting scenes from the Ramayana are to be found not only in temples all over India, but also in Indonesia and Angkor Vat, Kampuchea.

Valmiki's Ramayana

Ramayana: what do you think of when you hear this name? Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Hanuman, Ravana and many more characters. But have you ever read the Ramayana? If no, then this is the best book for you. All incidents, all characters: everyone and everything has been told in compplete detail! From the birth of Rama till the point when Sita goes into the ground, all details are given in this book. Also, even the illustrations of this book are fantastic! Overall, a 5- star rating to this book from my side. A must- read book for those who keep a keen interest in Indian Mythology

Valmiki's Ramayana

This is a modern comic book rendition of the ancient Indian classic. The story, something of a cross between soap opera and fable, is a beautiful one that celebrates virtue, especially that of keeping one's word and honoring agreements. Being a comic book it was obviously a quick, easy read but it does introduce the story lines of Rama and Sita and even some of the ancient history and geography of India.

Never thought Indian mythology was so interesting

Do i really need to introduce ram,sita and laxman. they are the heroes of indian mythology and who doesn't know them.indians worship them.this book was beautifully written by valmiki in sanskrit 1000s of years ago.since then it has become world famous and has been translated in many languages.this book should especially be read by kids. as no hero obeys every word of his father or mother like ram. this book teaches us that good will always triumph over evil and that in all aged ram will always triumph over ravan

Devotionally superb!

this is book tells us about teh past true devotional story. The epics of ramayana gives us the moral values, and the efforts of rama and his siyn ( army ) made rama successful in securing sita. This book tells us the whole epic and the good behavior qualities present in each mee ber of rama's siyn. It teaches us the difference between good and bad. GOOD ALWAYS WINS ON BAD

valmiki's ramayna

Ramayana is to be believed as one of the greatest epic of this world . In this epic it is shortly said that how great the history of India is. In this story we can read about :-lord Ram,who is a great son and brother,Lord Ram's wife sits, and his brothers laxman. Lord Ram's father 'king Dashrat' is one saved by one of her wives, and for this she is given a wish . she tells king Dashrat that she would ask for her wish on a right time and the time she asks for the wish the whole kingdom is shaken. She tells king to send his son Ram to a forest stay of almost 14 years as a great son Ram agrees for it but laxman and sits also wanted to go with Ram, after forcing a lot Ram agrees. The villains sister 'durpanakha' like laxman and wants him to marry her but when she asks for this laxman cuts off her nose when surpanakha tells his brother 'Ravan' about this he kidnaps sits and takes her away to Lanka and tells Ram to bring laxman to him and take Sita away. While kidnapping Sita one of ram's friend who is a vulture tries to save Sita but fails and dies.Then a big battle takes place and Ram is the winner and he takes Sita and also Laxman away with him. This is one of the greatest epic and we all should respect this. THANK YOU
