"Here is a new Clay Sanskrit Library publication of Book One (of seven) of Valmiki's Ramayana, the source revered throughout South Asia as the original account of the career of Rama, ideal man and incarnation of the great god Vishnu." "In "Boyhood," Rama, the crown prince of the city of Ayodhya, is a model son and warrior. His father, King Dasharatha, sends him to rescue a sage from persecution by demons, but first Rama must kill a fearsome ogress. That done, he drives out the demons, restores peace and attends a tournament in the neighboring city of Mithila; here he bends the bow that no other warrior can handle, winning the prize and the hand of Sita, the princess of Mithila. He and Sita and his brothers and their wives return in triumph to be feted in Ayodhya."--Jacket

"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"--

24 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixth book of the Ramayana of Valmiki, the Yuddhakanda, recounts the final dramatic war between the forces of good led by the exiled prince Rama, and the forces of evil commanded by the arch demon Ravana. The hero Rama's primary purpose in the battle is to rescue the abducted princess Sita and destroy the demon king. However, the confrontation also marks the turning point for the divine mission of the Ramavatara, the incarnation of Lord Visnu as a human prince, who will restore righteousness to a world on the brink of chaos. The book ends with the gods' revelation to Rama of his true divine nature, his emotional reunion with his beloved wife, his long-delayed consecration as king of Kosala, and his restoration of a utopian age. The Yuddhakanda contains some of the most extraordinary events and larger-than-life characters to be found anywhere in world literature. This sixth volume in the critical edition and translation of the Valmiki Ramayana includes an extensive introduction, exhaustive notes, and a comprehensive bibliography

The fifth and most popular book of the Ramayana of Valmiki, the Sundarakanda, recounts the adventures of the monkey hero Hanuman in leaping across the ocean to the island citadel of Lanka. Once there, he scours the city for the abducted Princess Siti. The poet vividly describes the opulence of the court of the demon king, Ravana, the beauty of his harem, and the hideous deformity of Sita's wardresses. After witnessing Sita's stern rejection of Ravana's blandishments, Hanuman reveals himself to the princess and restores her hope of rescue. The great monkey then wreaks havoc on the royal park and fights a series of hair-raising battles with Ravana's generals. Permitting himself to be captured by the warrior Indrajit, Hanuman is led into the presence of Ravana, whom he admonishes for his lechery. His tail is set ablaze, but he escapes his bonds and leaping from rooftop to rooftop, sets fire to the city. Taking leave of Sita, Hanuman once more leaps the ocean to rejoin his monkey companions. This is the fifth volume translated from the critical edition of the Valmiki Ramayana. It contains an extensive introduction, exhaustive notes, and a comprehensive bibliography

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
