Revered by Hindu worshippers for more than two thousand years, this sacred Indian epic tells the story of Rama, God in human form, who comes to earth to overthrow evil and restore peace. Bo Lozoff's moving narration is part storytelling, part personal interpretation and part commentary on comparative religion. The audio format is ideal because spoken word elucidates some of the more esoteric elements of this sweeping tale. Chants and musical accompaniment enhance the devotional tone of the work. Technical production values and sound quality are of the highest order. Lovingly told and impeccably produced, this audio edition brings Ramayana to life and may introduce this "crest jewel of ancient India" to a wider Western audience. C.S.
