Rāmāyaṇa by Vālmīki( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a new Clay Sanskrit Library publication of Book One (of seven) of Valmiki's Ramayana, the source revered throughout South Asia as the original account of the career of Rama, ideal man and incarnation of the great god Vishnu." "In "Boyhood," Rama, the crown prince of the city of Ayodhya, is a model son and warrior. His father, King Dasharatha, sends him to rescue a sage from persecution by demons, but first Rama must kill a fearsome ogress. That done, he drives out the demons, restores peace and attends a tournament in the neighboring city of Mithila; here he bends the bow that no other warrior can handle, winning the prize and the hand of Sita, the princess of Mithila. He and Sita and his brothers and their wives return in triumph to be feted in Ayodhya."--Jacket
Ramayana by Vālmīki( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a new Clay Sanskrit Library publication of the middle book of Valmiki's Ramayana, the source revered throughout South Asia as the original account of the career of Rama, the ideal man and the incarnation of the great god Vishnu." "After losing first his kingship and then his wife, Sita, Rama goes to the monkey capital of Kishkindha to seek help in finding her, and meets Hanuman, the greatest of the monkey heroes. The brothers Valin and Sugriva are both claimants for the monkey throne; in exchange for the assistance of monkey troops in discovering where Sita is held captive, Rama has to help Sugriva win the throne. The monkey hordes set out in every direction to scour the world, but they have no success until an old vulture tells them Sita is in Lanka. The book concludes with Hanuman's preparation to leap over the ocean to Lanka to pursue the search." "The tragic rivalry between the two monkey brothers is in sharp contrast to Rama's affectionate relationship with his own brothers, and forms a self-contained episode within the larger story of Rama's adventures. Rama's intervention in the struggle between Sugriva and Valin is the chief moral focus of the book."--Jacket
Rāmāyaṇa by Vālmīki( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the great city of Ayodhya, the king decides to abdicate in favor of his beloved son Rama; but just as the celebrations reach their climax, a court intrigue involving one of the king's junior wives and a maidservant results in Rama being forced into fourteen years' banishment. He dutifully accepts his fate, and goes off into jungle-exile, with his wife, Sita, and his loyal brother Lakshmana." "When the old king dies of a broken heart, another of Rama's brothers, Bharata, refuses to profit from his own mother's scheming, which leaves nobody to run the city. With difficulty, Rama persuades his brother to act as regent. He consents to do so only on the condition that he live in a village outside the capital and that he acts in Rama's name, having installed that rightful ruler's sandals symbolically on the throne."--Jacket

Le Rāmāyaṇa de Vālmīki by Vālmīki( Book )

14 editions published between 1853 and 1999 in French and Spanish and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Ramayana (ou " Geste de Rama {OCLCbr#BB}) retrace le parcours emblématique d'un héros tout à la fois humain et divin, ascète et guerrier, dans un monde peuplé de dieux et de démons. Cette épopée, qu'Henri Michaux définissait comme la fresque "exaltée-exaltante de tout ce qui est moteur dans le cosmos", constitue avec le Mahabharata l'un des deux grands poèmes épiques sacrés de l'Inde, et fait toujours l'objet d'une immense ferveur dans le monde indien. Dans la nouvelle traduction - intégrale - proposée ici, elle s'offre enfin au public français, qui découvrira en elle un chef-d'œuvre de la littérature universelle et une langue d'une force inouïe : son rythme et sa poésie, demeurés intacts, se déploient à travers sept chants où alternent tableaux guerriers et scènes rituelles, plaintes amoureuses et chants de vénération, querelles princières et affrontements cosmiques. "Avec des chants pareils {OCLCbr#BB}, dit encore Michaux dans Un barbare en Asie, " on se jette sous les roues du char des dieux"
