Two histories the Sage Valmiki wrote, to teach the growing world he loved so well, the way of virtue and of happiness. The one, intended for the younger souls, depicts the outer life of Rama, prince and King of Avadha and tells of how he warred against, and slew the evil King, Ravana. This ancient book is known to all the world as Ramayana. The other, helpful at a later stage, is called the Maha Ramayana, Greater Book, and it describes the inner life of Rama, telling how he triumphed over foes within himself, and so prepared to fight and conquer, for the helping of the world, the outer evil forces rampant in that time.The story of this Greater Book is here essayed in brief.
