Read Oriya Ramayan Online in Hindi – Dandi Ramayana from Orissa

Dandi Ramayana is a popular version of the Ramayan from Orissa. It is written by Balarama Dasa and is in Oriya (Odia). Now a Hindi version of the Oriya Ramayan is available online. You can read it online for free. Currently there is no option to download.
Dandi Ramayana is not a literal translation of the Valmiki Ramayan. Odia customs and tradition and folk tales are woven into the main story. Sri Ram during his search for Mata Sita visits numerous sacred places in Orissa – not part of the original Valmiki Ramayan.

Panchatantra Quotes

God befriends the man who climbs the highest point of determination.
Go however far to find honest joy.
Learn from any who is wise, though a boy.
The true seems often false, the false seem true – appearances deceive, so think it through.
Results are achieved only by action not by riding the chariot of the mind.
