The paintings in this book were commissioned by the Glory of India museum, part of ISKCON in New Delhi, and the publishers are grateful for permission to print them for the first time. Most of the motives are printed over both pages.


The popular epic Ramayana, by Valmiki, narrates the story of Lord Ramachandra, the incarnation of God, and His beautiful, faithful young wife, Sita. She asks to go with Him when He is exiled for fourteen years, and they live safely in the forest for twelve years. Then Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, one of the worst leaders the world has known. The very name Ravana means that he made the whole world cry in anguish.

With the help of Hanuman and an army of heroic monkeys, Lord Ramachandra kills Ravana and rescues Sita. This brief new version of the Ramayana is both faithful to original and accessible for contemporary readers.

The introduction is adapted from a talk about Lord Ramacandra by Srila Prabhupada in Hawaii on March 27, 1969.
