Shri Ramacharitamanasa of Tulasidasa is the single most popular book of the Hindus which for over four centuries has greatly appealed equally to the rich and the poor the educated and the illiterate the old and the yound and the scholar and the common man.
Its popularity is by no means limited to India nor are the Hindus its only readers. The message of the Ramacharitamanasa is all the more relevant today as it reiterates man`s faith in the soundness of moral order that sustain the world. Dark and evil forces may and will on occasions threaten to disrupt that order but divine intervention will ultimately chasten and subdue those forces.
