Vishnu’s Rama Avatar & Ramayana Summary
Possibly one of the best known Hindu deities, it is difficult to summarise the role of Rama and the epic Ramayana in just one article, but I will do my best! So here is my Ramayana summary!
The Story of the Ramayana
Brahma, Bhumidevi and the other devas appealed to Vishnu the preserver for their help. He promised to incarnate on earth as a man and kill Raavan. Vishnu was born as Rama to King Dasharatha. His companion, Shesha or Shesh Naag took birth as Lakshman. His consort Laxmi, took the form of Sita.
