    The Timeless Tale

    So long as the sun and moon shine, the mountains and the rivers exist, the epic poem Ramayan (The Way of Ram) and the name of Lord Ram shall inspire the world.

    The epic Ramayan originated in ancient India, where the great poet and sage Maharishi Valmiki wrote it in Tretayug. Epic poet Valmiki is called the Adhya Kavi or the first poet of mankind. Sage Valmiki himself was a witness to the events in Ramayan. He gave shelter to deserted Sita Devi and personally raised Lav and Kush the sons of Lord Ram and Sita Devi in his hermitage (Ashram). He taught the children the story of their father Ram. During the coming centuries, this epic has been re-written in several versions throughout the Asian continent and the Indian sub-continent.
