About the Book

Rather than dwell on the controversy over the existence of a causeway between India and Sri Lanka, The Bridge to Lanka takes us on a magical tour to experience some of the significant events that have been vividly set forth in the epic Ramayana.

The concept of a bridge to the island provides an ideal panorama for this journey.

The Epic says

It took five days for the army to complete the Bridge, with the expertise of Nila & Nala and guidance from Sagara. It was a curving Bridge covering thirty five kilometers over the sea, and from a distance appeared like an enormous forefinger pointing towards Lanka.

A Shiva Linga was consecrated at the base of the Bridge, before the army marched along the causeway towards Lanka.

The Question Remains

What was the purpose of this Bridge?

Whose idea was it?

When was it constructed?

From the email archives of Ramayana, The Bridge to Lanka tries to answer these questions, with graphic illustrations.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
