Rama is incarnation of Provider Lord Vishnu. Sage Valmiki has described Rama as Man Supreme in his epic original, Ramayana. The epic has all the nine value dimensions of life but it is mainly compassion-centric. The original epic is in Sanskrita which requires a special education. So. Goswami Tulsidas wrote the story of Rama in common man's language titled 'Srimad Ramachritmanas. He used material from other sources as well. Hence, there are some variations in the narration of some episodes. Valmiki's Rama is Man Supreme whereas Goswami's Rama is godly divine character.
As Ramcharitmanas is popular and more read epic our edition 'Sampoorna Ramayana' is based on it. Thus the title and story is clear enough to leave no room for any confusion.
Generally, Ramayana is divided in seven episode-Chapters. For recitations in Rama functions the devotees adhere to these seven chapters. In Valmiki's Ramayana Lava-Kusha episode is merely an addenda. But in our book the episode makes a normal episode-chapter because it reveals the glorious valour of the sons of Rama besides adding new dimensions to the characters of Rama, Sita, Laxmana, and Hanuman etc.
We have tried to keep the narrative brief, to the point and simple so as not to burden the beautiful illustrations. At the same time we have taken great care to see that the written part does not leave any gap in narration.
We believe that this illustrated edition will attract the attention of the young generation to help them see the beauty of the source from which flows our great culture, thoughts and our golden past. It is the need of the hour.
