In the ISBN file, the title is indicated: The Ramayana, narrated by Tulasidas. Author: Valmiki. Which seems like an error as a result of what is indicated in the introduction of the book:
“The Sri Ramacharitamanasa or Ramayana of Tulsidas, an authentic jewel of Hindu literature, tells us about the life and work of Sri Rama. The work is full of scenes of profound beauty, in which Tulsidas, with incomparable mastery, combines the story of Valmiki (a Sanskrit poem written more than a thousand years earlier) with his own experience of worshiping Rama. This work can in no way be considered a translation from Sanskrit to Hindi. Tulsidas was too good a poet to allow himself an imitation. On the other hand, his love and devotion for Sri Rama were too sincere and deep for him to subject himself to the experience of others. Through his work, Tulsidas wants to show us how devotion (worship to the teacher) is the only source to achieve fulfillment and liberation. ”
The Ramayana is the Bible of the inhabitants of the northern region of India. It is one of the most widely read and respected scriptures in India, and together with the Bhagavad Gita constitutes the highest culmination of the spiritual works of the Master-disciple devotional tradition.
