This book, especially written for children awakens in one a sense of beauty and wonder. The story of Sri Rama is not just narrated as an ancient tale full of sound and fury signifying nothing. The narration is interspersed with descriptions of the sights and sounds of Nature.
Swami Chinmayananda says, that this book is a picture gallery where each picture is a perfect one – and yet the entire gallery is confusing with its variegated colours, just like the picture of the world around us. That is why it attracts the young and the old alike. “Truly a thing of genuine beauty evokes in us a sense of reverence for the Divine; be it a thousand hued rainbow, the forest trees in bloom, the stillness of a moonlit night, the music of the river rushing to meet the ocean, or the darshan of ancient temples or images – their origin lost in antiquity – ageless, timeless, places of worship.”
