Edited by Hazel Sarah Greenberg. A window opens on the culture of India through this study of the 2500-year old Sanskrit epic of Prince Rama. This fascinating approach to Indian civilization through the Ramayana’s plot and characters (who are as appealing as cartoon superheroes but signify profound spiritual values) can be used as a comprehensive interdisciplinary curriculum or a source of individual lessons. 57 minute color video on the history and sociological significance of the Ramayana.”
