Regular Price $24.95

Swami Rama

The Ramayana is one of the great epics of world literature—a story rich in characters and drama. It is one of the most renowned works of the Indian literary heritage, and focuses on the strength and nobility of Prince Rama, his bride, Sita, and brother, Laksmana, as they face the evil King Ravana.

The world of The Ramayana is a world of wise sages and spiritual masters, evil demons, supernatural deeds, and great accomplishments. But above all else, it is also a story relevant to the modern world—a story of family relationships that defines the ideals of love, fidelity, loyalty, and honor.
