Ramayana of Valmiki - English Translation - Griffith

English translation by Ralph Griffith (in verses) of complete Ramayana of Valmiki. The Rāmāyaṇa is an ancient Sanskrit epic thought to have been compiled between approximately 400 BCE and 200 CE, attributed to the Hindu sage (maharishi) Valmiki. The Rāmāyaṇa consists of 24,000 verses in seven books, and 500 cantos and tells the story of Lord Rāma. Thematically, the epic explores themes of human existence and the concept of dharma.

  1. Extraordinary work; Seems like Mr. Griffith has also got Brahmadeva's 'aashirvaad' like Maharishi Valmiki himself.

  2. The link is dead, can you please update

  3. Valmiki is a Vedic Sage.
    He wrote the first epic of the human civilization
    to spread kundalini Yoga
    Sundara Kanda is nothing but Kundalini Yoga
    Trijata Swapna in Sundara Kanda is nothing but Gayathri Mantra
    Sita is Aadi Paraa Shakthi .
    Hanuman and Ravana are Kundalini Yogis
    of Samaya and Kaula Paths.
