Srimad Vālmīki Rāmāyaṇa | Ayodhya Kāṇḍa

ayodhyakanda-ramayana-desibantu

Ayodhya Kanda (The Book of Ayodhya) is the second book of the Valmiki Ramayana, which is one of the two great epic poems of India, the other being the Mahabharata.

The book consists of 119 sargas (sometimes translated as chapters or cantos) of Sanskrit verse. This Kanda starts with proposal for coronation of Rama as Yuvaraja by Dasaratha. On the advice of Mandhara, Kaikeyi asks Dasaratha two boons – one to crown Bharatha and the other to banish Rama to the forest for fourteen years. Rama accordingly goes to forest forest along with Sita and Lakshmana, their meeting with Guha and sage Bharadwaja and settling down in Chithrakuta mountain. Dasaratha dies due to sorrow of parting with his son. Bharatha who is summoned refuses to become the king. He along with every one goes to Chithrakuta to bring Rama back. Rama refuses Bharatha returns with Sandal of Rama and makes it a king and rules as its representative from a place called Nandigrama. Rama leaves Chithrakuta due to impending trouble from Rakshasas.
