legend of rama 2

 

Sanujit Ghose draws on a wide array of primary and secondary sources to examine the legend of Ram. Variations of this story can be found in the Veda, the early Iranian and Babylonian epics. Myths relating to Ram travelled round the continents over many centuries until they reached India with the ascent of the pastoral civilisation. There are more than two hundred Ramayanas spread over the whole of South and Southeast Asia, beside tens of thousands of folktales associated with the Ram story. From escalating Muslim invasions around the eleventh century AD unto the appearance of Tulasidas in the sixteenth century, the process of deification of Ram moved on.
