    One thought on “The Concise Ramayana of Valmiki”

    1. Great epic poem, oldest in the world I am told. It is worshiped in India. It's devotees read a chapter or sloka each day so it was a must read for me. Familiar with the holy name of Ram and his story, lost in the forest, rescuing Sita, Hanuman and Lakshmana but not knowing the particulars I worked hard oningesting. I was happy to learn so much more about the Ramayana than I had previously known, Vashistha's role, Sita's leaving of the world and so on.
