The Ramayana of Valmiki: An Appraisal
Description

To The Reader

If you are a scholar looking for a scholastic treat here, you are sure to be disappointed; because this is not a learned treatise written by a scholar for the benefit of other scholars.

If you are a researcher interested in unearthing new facts or discovering new theories, you will find nothing here that can excite you or whet your appetite for a deeper understanding of Ramalogy.

If you are a 'lively as a lark' sort of person, seeking entertainment here, thinking that it contains the exploits of monkeys, bears and hideous demons, you are in for a shock, since this booklet contains more serious things that can make you do some self-introspection.

However, if you are a simple devotee of Rama, believing in the Hindu scriptures as a source of strength and inspiration for life, and the Ramayana of Valmiki as such a scripture, we can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

If this brochure can induce you and inspire you to read Valmiki's original work, we deem that our task is done! -S. H.
