The Ramayana is one of the germinal sources linking the different cultures of the Indian subcontinent and the various nations of Asia. The story of Rama has pervaded deep into almost all regions, faiths and languages of Asia.Sahitya Akademi, the most prestigious National Academy of letters in India ,considered it befitting to organize an international seminar in 1975 at New Delhi which proved to be culturally and intellectually rewarding exercise with the participation of over forty scholars from eleven countries, each an authority on the Ramayana lore in his language and region. The Ramayana Tradition in Asia is a unique collection of the papers presented at the seminar.
