Today is the seventh day of the Ramayana month. Till today(I started the work on may 10th) I have completed the transliteration and translation of Five kandas of Adhyathma Ramayana. The next chapter is the Yudha Kanda. In Adhytama Ramayana it is the biggest chapter. Though I want to complete it before the end of the Ramayana month , I am not very confidant. I know the work is not done by me but by God , making poor me as an instrument. To make as much of my translation as possible available to the readers, I propose to post the translation of Yudha Kanda in three parts. Please pray for me and elders (I am 73) please bless me.
I would like to share one incident that took place while I was doing the translation. I had just started translation of Kishkinda Kanda and had gone out of my computer room. When I came back a big monkey was silently sitting near my computer. Scared I drove it out. The same thing happened when I started the translation of Sundara kanda. I live in Koramangala, a posh area of Bangalore in a third floor apartment. Rarely monkeys do come here. But so far none of them have come inside the apartment. I believe that it is a sign of God. May be I am very foolish and read things which are not there.
I have a humble request to all those visit this portal. This is most probably the first time that Ezhuthachan’s Adfhyathma Ramayana is being translated in to English. A famous translation in to English of the Sanskrit original exists. Please tell your Malayali friends about this translation attempt.May God bless all my visitors.
