The Ramayana is an ancient Sanskrit epic and it tells the story of a prince, Rama of Ayodhya, whose wife sita is abducted by the demon king of lanka, Ravana. Rama is the hero of his tale and he is portrayed as an incarnation of the god Vishnu. He is the eldest and the favorite son of the king of ayodhya, dasaradha. The Ramayana follows the life of Rama and his wife sita and his brother Lakshmana and even today is a very important part of Indian mythology and culture in yuddha kanda, Ram builds a bridge across the ocean with a large army of monkeys cross the ocean and reaches Lanka. Vibhishana (brother of Ravana) joins them and tells them how to destroy Ravana and his army. This part of Yuddha kanda explained the hurdles faced by Ram in reaching Lanka and his efforts to make Peace.
In this kanda kumbhakarna, indrajit, and Ravana are killed in battle. During the battle, both the parties of Rama and Ravana use Astras and weapons charged with mantras. Rama uses Brahmasastra to kill Ravana and rescues Sita. But when Ram doubts Sita’s honour, she steps into the fire to prove her chastity. She comes out more glorious and effulgent than ever. Vibhishana is then crowned as king in Lanka.
