I have really enjoyed listening to this new audio production of the
Ramayana. The company that produces it does so as essentially a
non-profit service. I thought you would like to hear about it, too.
You can contact the producer directly by email at ram@... or
visit their website at http://www.RamayanAudio.com (and you can hear
audio samples of the audio Ramayana on the website).
Here's the information:
THE RAMAYANA WAS MEANT TO BE HEARD!
NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON AUDIO CASSETTE
A full dramatic reading in English of the unabridged Ramayana of Valmiki
Now you and your family can listen to the Ramayana--the embodiment of
Indian traditions and Sanatana Dharma. A most precious way to preserve the
cherished values and wisdom of Indian life.
"The story of Rama, which touches on the delights of love and expounds
on the fruits of Dharma, is rich with gems like the ocean and ravishes all
heart and ears." --Ramayana
The Ramayana was originally part of the great oral tradition of Indian
knowledge. There seems to be greater power, authenticity, and aliveness
in listening to Rama's epic tale in this original oral form.
This audio production also features the unabridged Ramayana
containing all the beautiful stories-within-the-story often left out of the
abridged versions, such as the origin of the great river Ganges, the
secrets of master architect Maya, and the extraordinary battle between the
great sages Vasishta and Vishwamitra. You'll gain a glimpse into the
richness of ancient life in Rama's golden age, so inspiring still today.
There are many other blessings from hearing the Ramayana...
*With your children growing up fast in American culture, cherished
traditional values can be lost in one short generation. What better way to
instill awareness of the deepest values of Indian life than by listening to
the Ramayana with your whole family.
*To inspire you in your profession or business, listening to the Ramayana
is also profound. Rama--the embodiment of the ideal rulership--offers
great modern insights into true leadership and personal power.
*Turn your daily commute into an adventure by listening to Rama's great
adventure as you drive.
*This production of the Ramayana is beautifully packaged in a custom gold
case, making it a winning gift.
Each set also includes an annotated guide outlining the contents of
each cassette. This enables you to pick out special chapters for special
occasions or desires. For example, to enrich a marriage, listen to the
marriage of Rama and Sita, or to cultivate important partnerships, listen
to Rama's devoted partnership with Hanuman. Many sections of the Ramayana
are purported to yield various auspicious results such as these.
I promise you that these Ramayana audio tapes will be a most special gift
to yourself, your family, or anyone who desires the inspiration of the
world's most enlightening hero--Rama.
