About The Book

From the kingdom of Ayodhya to the isle of Lanka, we are transported to a land that has inspired morality and spiritual tradition for thousands of years. Rama, the king of Ayodya, comes to life through B.G. Sharma's never-before-seen compositions of this classic epic. From his intimate devotee, Hanuman, to his loving Queen, Sita, we are endeared to both text and illustration as these uniquely devotional paintings propel us through the story and into the heart of the Ramayana.
