So, You Think You Know Your Ramayana? - Valmiki Ramayana Webinar Series

So, You Think You Know Your Ramayana? - Valmiki Ramayana Webinar Series

Join me for a 3-week long, 21-day webinar series on going beyond just devotion and understanding Valmiki Ramayana as well - So, You Think You Know Your Ramayana? - Valmiki Ramayana Webinar Series 

Ram Ram, Jai Siya Ram, or Jai Shri Ram – whichever one you prefer!

How well do you know Ramayana?

  • Why was Ayodhya called Ayodhya?
  • What were fair wages and tax rate in Rama’s time?
  • What does Rama say about destiny and karma?
  • There are plenty of Yes-men, but what should a leader watch out for?
  • What is more difficult than making friends?
  • What did Sita give to Hanuman as proof of their meeting?
  • What was the rationale behind Sita’s agni pariksha?

Bhakti and Gyan/Jnana

You may be worshipping Rama daily, or you have stopped worshipping because you became progressive or woke!

Your bhakti may be deep, shallow or non-existent, but Ramayana can still benefit you.

Bhakti is great, especially in Kaliyuga, but our Rishis always emphasized the importance of gyan, or knowing; doing something knowingly - what today we may call mindfulness, living aware etc.

Without gyan/jnana, bhakti becomes andh-bhakti, open to manipulation.
Without bhakti bhava, gyan gives rise to arrogance. 
True bhakti and true gyan go together.

This webinar will also help you guide our younger and modern generations, our future, who don't follow anything, without explanation of the rationale behind it.

Webinar Series on Understanding Deeper Wisdom of Ramayana

There is Rama in the Indian ethos in the month of January 2024.

Political affiliations aside, Ramayana is the heritage of this land for everyone living here. Beyond the TV serials, comic books, we should make an effort to understand this great epic as adults now.

Towards this purpose, I have a special invitation for you. 

I am conducting a 21-days, 3-weeks long, daily, online, live webinar series from 1st to 21st January at 7 PM IST. 

If you think you can't make it to all the sessions or can’t make it at 7 PM or can’t make it for any other reason, you don’t have to worry at all! Recordings of all live sessions will be made available online within a day or two after each session. So, be sure to join and register for this series.

Please visit to register today.

Make this New Year even more meaningful by delving into the wisdom-ocean of our long and successful civilization and heritage. Understand why and how Rama and his story are still relevant – in modern times, modern settings, because human motivations, aspirations, desires, demotivation, sorrows etc. are still the same as in ancient times, but in a new dressing!

Please share this information with your friends and family and ask them to join as well.

Raam Raam!
