The Adhyatma Ramayanam is, as the title would indicate, a spiritual version of the Ramayanam. While Valmiki Ramayanam as an Itihasa was composed with the objective of giving proper advice on all the four goals life – Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksa, this version is primarily concerned with the last and final goal. Devotion to the feet of the Supreme Lord in the form of Rama is the surest and easiest means of achieving this objective.
