Description

Rama is the perfect man. Ramayana is the holy book that tells his story. It teaches us how to live caring for one another. In present day world where families are disintegrating the message of this epic can prove a cementing force.

Rama is incarnation of Provider Lord Vishnu. Sage Valmiki has described Rama as Man Supreme in his epic original, Ramayana. The epic has all the nice value dimensions of life but it is mainly compassion-centric. The original epic is in Sanskrit which requires a special education. So, Goswami Tulsidas wrote the story of Rama in common man's language titled Srimad Ramcharitmanas. He used material from other sources as well. Hence, there are some variations in the narration of some episodes. Valmiki's Rama is Man Supreme whereas Goswami's Rama is godly divine character.

Generally, Ramayana is divided in seven episode - chapters. For recitations in Rama functions the devotees adhere to these seven chapters. In Valmiki's Ramayana 'Lava-Kusha' episode is merely an addenda. But in this book, the episode makes a normal episode-chapter because it reveals the glorious valor of the sons of Rama besides adding new dimensions to the characters of Rama, Sita, Laxmana, Haunmana.

COMMENT:

My dream of illustrating the characters of the holy and historic book like Ramayana has been realized in this book. How far I have been able to capture the soul of Ramayana, only the readers can decide.
