Sri Ramacaritamanasa The Holy Lake of The Acts of Rama (A Romanized Edition)
Sri Ramacaritamanasa The Holy Lake of The Acts of Rama (A Romanized Edition)
Description
From the Jacket:

Sri Ramacaritamanasa of Tllsidasa is the single most popular book of the Hindus, which, for over four centuries, has greatly appealed equally to the rich and the poor, the educated and the literate, the old and the young, and the scholar and the common man.

Keeping in mind people's ever-increasing quest for the epic, this unique edition of Ramacaritamanasa with verse to verse rendition in Romanized form with English translation along with Tulasidasa's original text has been prepared. The Romanization and translation rendered by an accomplished scholar maintains the intrinsic richness of the original. Special care has been taken for making it useful to Indian brethren living abroad to whom the dialect of Tllasidasa's original may be somewhat incomprehensible. There has been a long-standing demand from the vast Indian community settled abroad for a standard and authentic edition of the Ramacaritamanasa. A special feature of this edition is the inclusion of Lavakusakanda, Sri Hanumancalisa and Sri Ramasalaka Prasnavali.

The edition is based on our original and widely acclaimed Shriramacaritamanasa - brought out in 1988.

About the Author:

Dr. R.C. Prasad translated Sri Ramacaritamanasa into simple and lucid English and Hindi. He was University Professor of English in Patna University where he taught for about three decades. He was an eminent author, translator and editor. He had a good number of books to his credit.

"…Now we have an excellent rendering of the original into simple Hindi and English with its two disputed chapters in the appendices along with opinion of scholars both Indian and European….."

Khuswant Singh
The Hindustan Times
New Delhi, December 10, 1998

"The beautifully printed book contains several multicoloured miniatures depicting the various facets of Rama's life… The book is a highly rewarding experience for those who want to know the essence of Hinduism and the reason why the poet calls the story of Rama a perpetual source of blessing and joy."

A.J. Philip
The Hindustan Times
Patna, March 26, 1980

"The volume… is principally concerned with popularizing the liberal devotional teaching of Tulsidasa."

Kailash Vajpeyi
Times of India
March 4, 1990

"The inclusion of the Tulasi text and the modern Hindi version makes this a better edition than the standard English translations of the Manasa…. The book is recommended for Manasa scholars as well as those interested in Ramayana tradition."

Chicago South Asia Newsletter
Vol. 13, No. 3
September, 1989

"Prasad was brave in undertaking so daunting a task, and the readers can now pick up a single volume and peruse the original and the translations simultaneously. The publishers have taken considerable care in producing the book. The text is easily readable and each page is handsomely decorated…."

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
