Rama's story is first told in the Ramayana, penned by Valmiki around 4400 B.C. Since then, the timeless story of Lord Rama has been retold numerous times, in nearly all the languages of India. Today the story of Ramayana is familiar to every child in India, the story having its own inherent ability to pervade and influence people.

The primary purpose of Rama's avatar was to put down Adharma (personified by Ravana) and re-establish Dharma. Ravana has received a boon that he would never be defeated by a god or a demon. He looked so much down upon humans that he did not even consider including them into his wish. Therefore, Rama had to descend from his heavenly heights in the for of a man to take advantage of this loophole.

Here we see Rama holding a bow with decorated ends in his left hand, while the right is raised in a gesture of blessing. Rama is a great archer, and archery plays an important role in many significant events of his life. Some of the episodes are:

1). His winning over of Sita by breaking down Lord Shiva's bow.

2). Ravana makes off with Sita while he is away trying to capture a deer with his bow.

3). His killing of Vali, the brother of Sugriva with an arrow.

4). The mere sight of him pulling an arrow from his quiver frightening the sea to give him way to Lanka.

5). His killing of Ravana by a special bow made by Lord Brahma.

When Rama broke Shiva's bow, he was given another bow by Parashurama, another avatar of Vishnu. This bow, known as 'Kodanda', is one of the few things Rama takes with him to the jungle. Images of Rama, such as this, leaning on his bow are known as 'Kodanda Rama'.

This sculpture was created using Shivani Teak Wood in the southern Indian city of Mysore, Karnataka.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
