Read Ramayana - an international initiative

Ramayana, the hindu epic that is celebrated as 'adi kavyam', the first among poems, has been digitized! A very pious initiative by Mr. Krishna Sharma is sending out the 24000 verses of the Valmiki Ramayana in small installments of 100 verses every week to your inbox. The rendering contains the original verse in one of the Indian languages (nine major languages have been covered, Devnagari, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Oriya, Gurumukhi, Gujarati, Bengali), together with an English transliteration and translation. Sample below.

This is delivered right to your inbox. The content is un-intensive, easy on eye, simple, pleasing to the mind and soul. Ramayana has been cited since time immemorial as a treatise on man's conduct. In recent times there have been efforts to find lessons for management from Ramayana. The point in saying this is this is an epic for all to learn, to assimilate, to understand, to appreciate, to derive bliss. Read it just like you would any of the new releases, without any prejudice of this being a spiritual (only) book and hence of limited use in our daily life. At every juncture you'll see that this book is more relevant to mankind today than ever.

Resource page is here.  Do subscribe here for your weekly dose of bliss.

May the Lord SriRama fill the world and its inhabitants with right conduct and thus establish sustainable peace on the planet. Jai Sri Ram.
