Valmiki's -The Ramayana, Complete Edition, translated by Manmatha Nath Dutt. The Ramayana is certainly one of the world's oldest legends. Modern scholars claim that it was first composed around 300 BC. The devout Hindu believes that Rama lived many hundred millennia ago, in the Treta Yuga, and that was also when Valmiki first told his immortal story. The God Brahma himself is meant to have inspired Valmiki to create his classic, in twenty-four thousand slokas. The true purpose of the Ramayana is to awaken its reader spiritually, and to send him forth on the great journey that leads to Moksha, to God. We have worked in detail to compile each volume for the readers to understand and have the delight to read the very old Epic. We have the Complete Ramayana in a single volume. It has an image gallery, pop-up for the meaning of words in the book for making it easy for the readers to relate to it.
