About this Item

The story of Rama has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. The complete story of the Ramayana was hardly popular with the masses in complete form till it was composed by the sage Valmiki in a book form. The Ramayana which is known as the Adi-kavya or the first ornate poem according to the indigenous estimation is ascribed to the sage Valmiki, the Adikavi or the first author of the ornate poetry. The Ramayana deserves to be called as the Adikavya because of the characteristics of the ornate poetry, such as the description of nature and the presence of the figures of speech, both of words and the sense are quite auspicious. A number of Ramayanas were composed in different parts of the country. The regional Ramayanas were composed not only in the north but also in the south, in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages. Of these regional works, the Kamba Ramayana which was composed by Maharshi Kamban, possibly was the earliest. The Kamba Ramayana comprises of six kandas instead of seven of the Valmiki Ramayana. The sage Kamban was well-versed in the southern recention of the Valmiki Ramayana, which would be evident from the following episodes which have been included by him in his work:- 1. The churning of the ocean and taking of Vishnu in the form of Mohini. 2. Conversation between Lakshman and Tara. 3. Destruction of Dhrumkulya. 4. Battle between Sugriva and Ravana. 5. Journey of she-monkeys to Ayodhya. 6. Dialogue between Kumbhakar?a and Vibhishana. This is the first time that an English Translation of this great Tamil work is in front of the curious readers in two hard-bound volumes. Printed Pages: 1001. Bookseller Inventory # 33303
