The Ramayana is an epic tale of love, lust and power, nobility, tolerance, heroism and suffering, and with
the magnificent, joyful and tragic inevitability of fate – the human condition.
The purpose of the Ramayana was never less than awaken the reader spiritually, and set them on the
great journey that finally, leads to moksha, nirvana, the truth that frees. Without exception, the masters
of old have said that listening to the Ramayana or reading it serves to exorcise one’s sins and to purify
one’s soul. The story needs to be heard and/or read by all students of yoga.
