The Ramayana, a wondrous tale of cosmic adventure from India, immerses us in a world of heroes and gods and demons. Like another famous Hindu epic, the Mahabharata, it is both a teaching saga and an entertaining story of the eternal struggle between good and evil.

Created over 2,000 years ago by the poet/sage Valmiki, the Ramayana has been recited over the centuries to hundreds of millions of listeners.
