However, some scholars attribute it to the period 14th - 15th century CE and the author as unknown. It is this work that provided Tulasidas with the inspiration to compose his immortal work, the Ramacharitamanasa. Ramavataram, popularly referred to as Kamba Ramayanam , is a Tamil epic that was written by the Tamil poet Kamban during the 12th century. Deviation from Valmiki Ramayana[ edit ] The major alteration in the fact of the story found in the Adhyatma Ramayana is the introduction of a " Maya Sita " or Shadow Sita throughout the period of her abduction.
The real Sita disappears into fire just before the golden deer episode. Tulasidasa also follows the Adhyatma Ramayana in this respect. In the Adhyatma Ramayana, Sita emerges from the fire at the end of the war when the shadow Sita enters into it. The whole drama is preplanned and enacted at the bidding of Sri Rama Himself. Other alterations in the Adhyatma Ramayana include: Ravana treats Sita with the respect due to a mother and Sri Rama establishes a Shiva Lingam at the site of the bridge to Lanka.
The major contribution of the Adhyatma Ramayana lies in the casting of Rama in the role of the spiritual teacher and in the several exquisite hymns sung in praise of Rama. There are four occasions when Rama assumes the role of the teacher and gives philosophical disquisition. Rama reveals himself as four-handed Mahavishnu at his very birth, a feature that is not seen in Valmiki Sage Valmiki depicts Sri.
Rama as an ideal man while admitting his divinity, whereas Sage Vyasa present him as the Supreme Being incarnate with the full remembrance of his divinity and the recognition of it by all wise men. The well known Ramagita is part of Adhyatma Ramayana. It contains teachings on Advaita Vedanta. The real contribution of this work is in its repeatedly propounding the doctrine that Rama is Brahman the absolute and that Sita is His Maya-shakti or Prakriti, thereby raising the personality of Rama to the highest level and providing a firm base to the worship of Rama.
Ahalya the wife of Sage Gautama Maharishi is in invisible form in the Valmiki Ramayana, whereas in the Adhyatma she has been depicted in the rock form. In the Ayodhya Kanda of Adhyatma Ramayana the section opens with a visit of Sage Narada to Rama to remind him of the purpose of his incarnation, which Sri.
Rama acknowledges. All these incidents are not in Valmiki. In the Adhyatma, banishment of Sri Rama is accomplished by the Devas through Goddess Saraswathi , by possessing the two women i. In Valmiki this incident is explained as a simple court intrigue. In Adhyatma, Lakshmana requests Rama to instruct him on the means of attaining moksha.
Rama also gives him an elaborate discourse on Jnana and Bhakti , conveying the quintessence of Vedanta. In Adhyatma - unknown to Lakshmana, Rama informs Sita that Ravana will be coming to abduct her, and that therefore he is handing her over to the Fire deity Agni for safe custody, till he takes her back again.
In her place Maya Sita is left in asrama, and it is this illusory Sita that Ravana abducts. This is unknown in the Valmiki. Rama gives her an elaborate advice of philosophy of Vedanta and the practice of devotion, besides consoling her. In Adhyatma while Rama is staying at Mount Pravarshana after the coronation of Sugreeva, he gives an elaborate discourse to Lakshmana on the ritualistic worship of Lord Maha Vishnu i.
Himself , thus revealing his identity with the Supreme Being openly. Swayamprabha comes to meet Rama and praises Him, identifying him as Supreme Being. According to the advice of Rama she goes to Badari to attain Mukthi. This episode is absent in Valmiki. Sampati gives an elaborate discourse to the monkeys who meet him He quotes Sage Chandramas, while telling about the divinity of Sri. This incident is available in Adhyatma only.
Rama also declares about the merit of Pilgrimage to Rameswara and Sethu Bandha here. These elaborations are not available in Valmiki. In Valmiki, Rama is not aware of his Divinity till the end when Brahma imparts that knowledge to him. Kalanemi obstructs Hanuman while he is on his way to bring Mritasanjivani , a herb that can revive one who is almost dead. This incident is absent in Valmiki. Narada praises Rama after the death of Kumbhakarna in Adhyatma.
This is absent in Valmiki. Killing of Maya Sita by Indrajit and illusion created thereon by black magic is available in Valmiki but not in Adhyatma. Before going to battle Ravana, for gaining invincibility in fighting, begins fire rite, as per the advice of his guru Sukracharya. This rite is blocked and stopped by the monkeys. These incidents are absent in Valmiki Ramayana. Rama cuts down the heads of Ravana repeatedly, but could not kill him. Vibhishana informs Rama that Ravana has got amrita deposited in his umbilicus and that until it is removed he cannot be killed.
This is available in Adhyatma Ramayana. According to Adhyatma on the death of Ravana, his spirit, having luminosity of lighting enters into Rama and attains moksha.
This explanation finds no place in Valmiki. The whole event is given the appearance of a real ordeal in Valmiki.
I had not read this great book earlier. So as soon as I came back I procured a book published by Mathrubhumi which gives meaning for difficult words. I started the translation on May 5th and completed it on August 15th. I was alone in the house and was in another room.
