Valmiki - Ramayana PDF Download eBookThe Ramayana is the immense work of Valmiki, who is regarded as the first poet of India. It is one among two most famous and influential India epic stories, with the Mahabharata being the other one. This magnificent romance saga is among the most massive classic literary works not only in India or Asia, but worldwide and it is often considered parallel to The Iliad.
It is a love story between Rama, an ancient King and the seventh avatar of Vishnu, and his beautiful and devoted lover, Sita. During their adventure along with Rama’s brother Lakshmana, Sita is captured by the evil Ravan, the King of Ceylon. In his effort to reclaim Sita, Rama gets the assistance from Hanuman, a mighty vanara (ape-like humanoid) who is the incarnation of Shiva. Rama and Lakshmana soon have a vast and powerful army and the lay siege to Ceylon after Ravan refuses to return Sita.
Valmiki’s Ramayana becomes an important piece of Hindu canon. It portrays the duties of relationships, the ideal characters like the ideal father, ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king. In its broader theme, the story explores human values and the concept of dharma.
The story and philosophy of Ramayana has spread and become influential to some countries outside India too, especially South-East Asian countries with Hinduism background in their history. In countries like Thailand and Indonesia, the love story of Rama and Sita is widely known to the people and many works (dances, sculptures, paintings) have been created based on the story.
