'The Travels of Rama' Volume 1
by Karnamrita Dasa
From the introduction
The Rāmāyana of Vālmeeki is surely one of the greatest stories ever told. It is a stupendous epic that stretches from horizon to horizon, encompassing almost all that the soul can aspire to, and more than the mind could ever imagine. It is the oldest poem known to man: a repository of moral and spiritual truths that has entranced good men for millennia. And above all it is a grand story, one that will be told upon the word of Brahmaji - as long as mountains stand and rivers flow upon the earth. I speak, of course, as a believer, for the Rāmāyana is above all a holy scripture, and accepted by millions, and especially by the Vaishnavas (the devotees of Rāma and Krishna), as the literal record of the deeds of the Godhead. The Western mind, however, is always prone to consign works of this kind to the dust of the library shelf, along with the myths of Greece and Rome, and to cast out all thought that the events described in the Rāmāyana might have actually occurred.
