is one of the most beloved Hindu Gods and is the hero of our great
epic, the Ramayana.
Millions of Hindus read the hundreds of stories
in the epic and derive immense satisfaction recalling the trials and
tribulations the young prince of Ayodhya experienced in the fourteen
year exile leading to the slaying of the demon Raavana, recovery of
His beloved consort Sita and finally His coronation as the emperor
of India of lore.
As a story Ramayana is superb. No
matter what chapter one reads, one is struck with the depth of human
feeling, human nature and the eternal conflicts among values.
