The Rāmāyaṇa


Welcome to the electronic text of the critical edition of the Rāmāyaṇa.

The text of the Rāmāyaṇa is available in three formats: Unicode Devanagari, Unicode Roman (using the conventions defined in ISO 15919), and ASCII (using the Harvard/Kyoto conventions).

If you find any error in the text, please inform John Smith (jds10 <at> cam.ac.uk), Suvarna Deshpande (suvarnad09 <at> gmail.com) or Pranav Gokhale (pranavpg88 <at> gmail.com).

(The files are in PC format (end-of-line is CR/LF), which should cause no problems to most non-PC users; those who expect to use grep or similar regular expression matching software should use one of the utilities available to replace CR/LF with LF.)
