The Ramayana points the way for attaining the ultimate aim of human life - complete freedom, peace and bliss - while Living in this world.

The Ramayana is termed as one of the two Itihas-Granthas' (Historic Epics) in Sanskrit literature, the other being The Mahabharata. An Itihas Grantha is not merely a historical narration of events. It contains the condensed wisdom of Vedic knowledge which guides an individual in attaining the ultimate aim of human life - complete freedom, peace and bliss- while living in this world.

Lord Rama exemplifies the attitudes and perspectives for attaining this ideal by boldly facing the diverse vicissitudes of life. In success and in adversity, with friends and with foes, in pace and in war - His countenance shines with the benevolent effulgence of divinity. To His devotees, He points the way to achieve and manifest the divinity which is inherent in each human soul.
