Learn to Chant Sankshepa-Ramayanam (Experience the essence of Ramayana in 100 shlokas)

Ramayanam is the first epic (आदिकाव्य) of world literature consisting of nearly 24,000 verses written by Valmiki Maharshi. 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 equal to that of Ramayana and is evidenced from its phalashruti. In this chapter, Narada Muni tells Valmiki Maharshi the brief story of Rama and 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, Vid.Vaishnava Simha will teach to recite all the shlokas in Sankshepa-Ramayanam with good pronunciation and proper split-points.
