Welcome to Ramayanam page !

As stated elsewhere Ramayanam is an epic that was told and retold a million times. So we will not be telling anything that is not known or said elsewhere. We are like children playing at the beach in front of a big ocean that is Ramayan. Our thoughts on this are elaborated a little more under the tittle " An Introduction to our Ramayanam pages". We planned in all sincerity to bring in pages from Ramayan which gave us immense pleasure, for the reading pleasure of our readers !

Ramayanam page hosts all stories from Ramayanam brought out by kasarabada.org !! Over the last few years the number of stories added resulted in several special pages. Some of major pages are listed below:

Sundarakanda is indeed the heart of the Ramayanam page!! Slokas of all 68 Sargas with prose order with translation into English and Telugu are available. In addition Sloka text is available in Devanagari, Telugu , Kannada, and Gujarati and English.

Sundarakanda Slokas: covers all Sundarakanda Slokas for Parayana.

Sankshipta Sundarakanda is an abridged version of Sundarakanda and was the first offering in these pages

Balakanda : Sloka text of 77 Sargas with English/Telugu Translation.

Sankshipta Ramayanam from Balakanda in English , Telugu and Sanskrit. This is the complete Ramayana story told in a hundred verses in the first Sarga of Balakanda

Role models from Ramayanam:. This is a Turaga contribution. Started with a chat on Rama as a role model and expanded to cover ,The Message of Ramayana , SriRama , Sita , Hanuman, Jataayu , Sabari , Bharata , Lakshmana. These are all brought under one page for easy reference.

Vijayraghavrao gari Sundarakanda in Telugu :is yet another contribution . This is a free flowing Telugu poem , following Valmiki Sundarakanda . This is called Samkshipta Sundarakanda version it does not cover Sundarakanda chapter wise. It is in a beautiful free flowing Telugu and is for those familiar with Telugu.

Last addition was the inner meaning of Sundarakanda on lines of Tattvadipika of Shri Bhashyam Appalaacharyulugaru. The home page of Tattvadipika in Telugu shows all the chapters presented. The Tattvadipika is presented in English also.

The latest addition is the on going and the final work on Sundarakanda. It is Sundarakanda with word meanings using Tika traya as a refernce for translation. This can be seen on the home page for Artha Tatparya TattvadIpika Sahita Sundarakanda This is the final ongoing project of Sundarakanda.
