2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exhibition catalogue for The Rama Epic--recounting the struggle of Prince Rama to defeat a powerful demonic king, rescue his abducted wife and reestablish virtuous order in the world. The epic has been a prime subject for visual and performing arts, literature and religious thought in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia for many centuries. A huge number of artworks of all kinds relating to the Rama legends have been made over the course of 1500 years in a dozen countries. This book illustrates some of the most important episodes involving the four primary characters: the hero, Rama; the heroine, Rama's wife Sita; the ally, Rama's faithful monkey lieutenant Hanuman; and the foe, the ten-headed demon king Ravana. The catalogue tells the story in a new light using more than 130 artworks, ranging from paintings to puppets to decorative arts to contemporary works to ephemera, inviting readers to find echoes of their own experiences in the stories and dilemmas of each of the characters"--

The R{macr}am{macr}aya{dotb}na of V{macr}alm{macr}iki. an epic of ancient India by V{macr}alm{macr}iki( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventh and final book of the monumental R{macr}am{macr}aya{dotb}na of V{macr}alm{macr}iki, the Uttarak{macr}a{dotb}n{dotb}da, brings the epic saga to a close with an account of the dramatic events of King R{macr}ama's millennia-long reign. It opens with a colorful history of the demonic race of the r{macr}ak{dotb}sasas and the violent career of R{macr}ama's villainous foe R{macr}ava{dotb}na, and later recounts R{macr}ama's grateful discharge of his allies in the great war at Lank{macr}a as well as his romantic reunion with his wife S{macr}it{macr}a. But dark clouds gather as R{macr}ama, confronted by scandal over S{macr}it{macr}a's time in captivity under the lustful R{macr}ava{dotb}na, makes the agonizing decision to banish his beloved wife, now pregnant. As R{macr}ama continues as king, marvelous tales and events unfurl, illustrating the benefits of righteous rule and the perils that await monarchs who fail to address the needs of their subjects. The Uttarak{macr}a{dotb}n{dotb}da has long served as a point of social and religious controversy largely for its accounts of the banishment of S{macr}it{macr}a, as well as of R{macr}ama's killing of a low-caste ascetic. The translators' introduction provides a full discussion of these issues and the complex reception history of the Uttarak{macr}a{dotb}n{dotb}da. This translation of the critical edition also includes exhaustive notes and a comprehensive bibliography
