                             Nama Ramayana

               Translated By P.R.Ramachander

 

A devout Hindu believes that if he reads Ramayana ( The story of Rama) daily , he would be nearing his God.He also would like to meditate on the name ‘Rama’ , so that all his sins are washed off. Nama Ramayana is the story of Rama written for this purpose. Apart from condensing the story , it helps the devotees to meditate on the different sterling aspects of Rama.Here is a translation in English to help the devotees to do just that.
