With background music and sound effects.
One of the most-loved epic stories of ancient India, the Ramayan takes hold of the imagination and works its way into the heart.
This narration is not just an in-depth story of the life of Lord Ramachandra, but is a revelation of some of the most fascinating personalities in Vedic history. It portrays ideals–the ideal husband, wife, brother, friend and servant–under the most trying, if not overwhelming circumstances.
In this slightly abridged edition, the multiple-voice characterizations, traditional Indian background music, and realistic sound effects will keep you engrossed in the story for hours at a time. Your imagination will see Lord Rama’s father, King Dasaratha banish him from the kingdom to the forest for 14 years; His wife Sita kidnapped by the demon Ravana; His servant Hanuman discover Her whereabouts; and Rama lead the monkey troops into battle and finally kill Ravana.
