Ramcharitmanas is a divine poem composed by Sri Tulsidas during the 16th century AD.This poem is considered as one of the master pieces of the Holy Texts of Hinduism. Tulsidas is considered as an incarnation of Rishi Valmiki, who wrote the Ramayana during the Treta Yuga. This work was appreciated by several ancient kings, scholars and also it received good response from the general public.
Tulsidas wanted the story of Rama to re-tell it to the public, in a simplified manner, and he wrote this marvelous poem in Hindi, which is considered as the main Indian language. Initially his work was badly commented by some scholars of Varanasi, but after they have fully heard about “RAMCHARITMANAS”, they have appreciated Tulsidas, for his great talents in writing the life history of Lord Rama in a wonderful manner, and in course of time, his work was accepted by all classes of people.
Ramcharitmanas, contains the complete story of Rama, in the form of short poems, and while writing each and every poem, he used to meditate on Lord Rama and Lord Hanuman for some time, and then only he would proceed further. After the completion of this great work, he got the darshan of Lord Hanuman and received blessings from him. He also used to attend the Ramayana lectures in the temples of Lord Rama, in order to increase his Rama Bhakti.
By reading the holy Ramayan, we would get mental satisfaction, and would attain spiritual enlightenment. Though the incidents from Ramayan were happened before few lakhs of years, still we are getting delighted by reading this wonderful epic Ramayana. Especially, while reading the chapter, Sundara Kandam, we are all in a happy mood, since Lord Hanuman comes as a saviour for Ma Sita, and through his sweet words, he consoled her, similar to her affectionate son. Ma Sita also got some hope, after seeing Hanuman, and she blessed Hanuman for the wonderful job done by him.
