Adhyatma Ramayana

Adhyatma Ramayana

 

Adhyatma Ramayana is a version of Lord Rama's story from the Advaita Vedanta perspective.

What is the difference between Adhyatma Ramayana and Valmiki Ramayana?

Valmiki Ramayana narrates Rama’s story from the Purushottama (perfect man) angle. 

Valmiki describes Rama as someone who never deviated from dharma. In Adhyatma Ramayana, Rama is an incarnation of Parabrahma, Seetha of Prakriti, and Laksmana of Adishesha. 

The incidents in their life have been depicted as just a leela (divine play). 

Even abduction of Seetha by Ravana has been described as illusory.

Valmiki Ramayana teaches you how to live a perfect life as a  man. Adhyatma Ramayana shows you the path to moksha through devotion in Sri Rama.
