About the Book

After presenting to the English-reading public two great books of the Hindu tradition earlier, namely, The Mahabharatam and The srimed Bhiigavatam, Srimati Kamala Subramaniam is now offering to the readers a third great book of the Hindu tradition, namely, The Ramayanam of Viilmlki. Like the two previous books, this one also is an abridged edition of the large epic, retaining, however, all the essential parts of the book and its inspirational flow of epic narrative. Eulogizing the two great epics of India, Swami Vivekananda says (Complete Works, VoL IV, p. 96): "In fact, the Ramayan) a and the M Mahabharata are the two encyclopedias of the ancient Aryan life and wisdom, portraying an ideal civilization, which humanity has yet to aspire after." The Rimayana has been the perennial source of spiritual, cultural, and artistic inspiration for these thousands of years, not only to the people of India but also to the peoples of South-East Asian countries. It has enriched the national literatures of these countries, and has also provided themes for every form of their art - dance, drama, music, painting and sculpture. Its heroic characters have helped to mould the Hindu character; and its three great personalities, namely, Rama, SIta, and Hanuman, have inspired millions of her people, high or low in the socio-economic scale, with the deepest, tenderest, and holiest love, reverence, and devotion. All Hindu spiritual teachers, ancient and modern, have responded ecstatically to this great book and its heroes.
