The Ramayana is not just an epic ancient story, but to many across the world it is a philosophical work of deep truth and spiritual significance. The poem is considered to be the first poetic work of the Hindu tradition, conveying Hindu archetypal ideals and presenting the model of many of societies roles. This profound symbolic work is meant to also be representative of the body and mind, with the characters interactions acting as an analysis of how to balance those essential aspects of life.
