Description

Of the six sections, or Kandas, of the Ramayana the Sundara Kanda is the fifth. The Sundara Kanda tells of the heroic exploits of Hanuman in one day and night, during which he crossed over to Lanka, discovered Sita, inflicted crushing defeat on Rakshasa forces, set fire to Lanka and returned to the southern shore of the Indian continent to convey the news of Sita’s discovery to Rama at Kishkindha. Those who equate the Ramayana with the Veda, consider the Sundara Kandam as its Upanishad, the essential portion.

This volume is written in the orginal Sanskrit and English. The English translation is very well done and a wonderful experience to read.

Printed in India, 286 pages. Indian edition covers may have slight to moderate marks.
