Ramayana, a Holy Bible of India 105 editions

Cover of: Ramayana, a Holy Bible of India by Vālmīki.
About the Book

The Ramayana I believe is widely regarded as part of the pantheon of ancient Vedic Holy writing, like the Mahabartha with which you classify it and which includes the most well-known Indian scripture, The Bhagavad Gita, the book of Lord Krishna. It is a narrative perhaps in the same category as the story of Abraham and Sarah and their family in the book of Genesis and should perhaps be regarded as having similar levels of allegorical and metaphysical significance. It give the essence of living life when anyone read it sitting on an arm chair for a long time. In most of the Indian universities, various parts of this book are prescribed as the course book.
