About : 

  • Ramcharitmanas is an epic composed by the famous Hindi poet, Goswami Tulsidas, about 400 years ago. The abysmal poverty which was his lot in the early years of life and the traumatic experiences in the later years moulded the great poet’s emotional life. He sublimated his emotions into a number of devotional works, the best known among them being Ramcharitmanas dealing with the story of Rama, the ideal king who once ruled Ayodhya. Rama is depicted in this book as a common man endowed with divine qualities. The book sets out in great detail the code of conduct for men in all walks of life and lays down ideals for the general good of the people, highlighting the ultimate triumph of Good over Evil.
  • Ramcharitmanas consists mostly of Dohas and Chaupayees (two lined and four lined poetic metres) and is divided into seven cantos. The author’s devotion to Rama and his spirit of complete surrender to him runs through the entire work like a silken thread. The influence this book has on the minds of the people is proof of the nobility of the ideals enshrined in it.
