Sri Ramcharitra Manas of Goswami Tulsidas enjoys a unique place among the classics of the word's literature. It is a specimen of most exquisite poetry and can compare favourably with the best poems of the world. It was considered to be the best work of Devotion by Mahatma Gandhi, the greatest man of the modern world and styled as the perfect example of the perfect book by foreign scholars.
It is universally accepted by all classes of people from Bihar to the Punjab and from the Himalayas to the Narmada. According to an old Christian missionary, who is no more in this world, no one could hope to understand the people of Upper India till he had mastered every line that Tulasidasa had written.
