About the Book :
Ramayana Mani Manjoosha : ( A Chest of Jewels from Ramayana ) . A collection of shlokas from Valmiki Ramayana
” The intention of Valmiki in writing Ramayana was to spread Dharma among the masses by presenting a role model in Rama for people to follow. He presented every character in it in such a way that one can take lessons from them to set his own life on the path of Dharma. Valmiki did not want to create a group of Ramabhaktas by presenting Rama in a supernatural form beyond the reach of ordinary people. Unfortunately, we, the present day Ramabhaktas, have ceased to emulate Rama’s qualities and behaviour and instead come to worship him as God. Valmiki made Rama say, “I am a human being by name Rama, the son of Dasharatha. ” And Rama’s behaviour at every stage was ideally human and not superhuman which can be emulated by every human being. ” – Sadhu Ekant
Ramayana Mani Manjoosha is written to bring out the wisdom of Valmiki within the reach of English-knowing people.
