Title: Voyage Through the Ramayana
Author: Boothalingam, Mathuram
Description: In this book the author takes the reader on a veritable journey of discovery through the vast territory of the Ramayana. Relying on the story for Valmiki’s text, her interpretation has been inspired by the modern psychologists Yung and Maslow. On the surface, the Ramayana is the story of a prince struggling to maintain the high standards he has set for himself patterned on the mores of the age. But below the surface, the spirit of Rama can be discerned as man’s true inner ego guidance. The author believes that a fresh look at the Ramayana in this way might help us to recapture the spirit of Valmiki, who meant his Rama to be an example of a true healer of man’s inner estrangement.
