सङ्क्षेप-रामायणम् - भावार्थः
Ramayanam is the first world literature consisting of nearly 24,000 verses written by Maharshi Valmiki. The first chapter of the first kanda (The Bala kanda) of this epic is popularly known as Sankshepa-Ramayanam. This is an abridged version of Ramayana that consists of 100 verses. It is accorded a status equivalent to that of Ramayana as evidenced by its phalashruti. In this chapter, Narada Muni tells Valmiki Maharshi the brief story of Rama and later persuades him to write about Rama’s life. Many people have a ritual of chanting this on a daily or weekly basis at their houses even today. In this course, Dr. Venkatasubramanian P will give the basic meaning (bhavartha) of the shloka-s of Sankshepa-Ramayana.

The story covers his fourteen-years of exile in the forest to abide by his father’s words. Rama along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, travels across forests. The kidnapping of Sita by Lankeshwara Ravana, causes a war. Rama eventually returns to Ayodhya after slaying Ravana and is crowned as king.
