Background[ edit ] Picture of author, Tulsidas published in the Ramcharitmanas, This also makes Tulsidas a contemporary of William Shakespeare. The Valmiki Ramayana is centered on the narrative of Rama , the scion of the family tree of king Raghu of the Sun Dynasty. Rama was the crown prince of Ayodhya and is considered in Hindu tradition as the seventh Avatar of Vishnu. However, the Ramacharitmanas is by no means a word-to-word copy of the Valmiki Ramayana nor an abridged re-telling of the latter.

As they grew, sacred thread ceremony was held for all the four brothers. Dasharatha was apparently hesitant as Ram and Laxman were of tender age at that time and were not ready for a fight against mighty demons.
However Dashratha consented as sage Vashishta advised him that it would be in their best interest. They would learn numerous secret art and weaponry from Vishwamitra.
Vishwamitra led Ram and Laxman to his hermitage ashram. On their way, Tadaka or Tataka obstructed. On reaching his ashram, Vishwamitra started oblation and assigned the task of protecting the place to Ram and Laxman. The heroic lads destroyed and thrashed demons like Marich, Khar-Dushan and Subahu easily. Vishwamitra was impressed and took them under his wing and trained them to use magic weaponry.
King Janaka invited Vishwamitra to adorn the swayamvar of his daughter, Sita. On their way to Janakpur, Ram noticed a stone idol of a beautiful woman lying on ground. Vishwamitra told Ram the history behind it.
She was Ahilya, wife of Sage Gautama but turned into stone due a curse given by Gautama for her misconduct. Sri Ram touched the stone with his feet and she transformed back to her original form. At Janakpuri, Vishwamitra took Ram and Laxman for sight seeing. At flower garden, Ram had first glimpse of Sita and both were mutually attracted.
The day of swayamvar arrived. Many kings tried to lift the great bow, but none could even budge it. Janak was disheartened. My daughter would remain unmarried. As he bent down to string the bow, it broke with a sound that echoed in the three worlds, leaving him shocked at his own strength.
Sita was overjoyed and garlanded Ram. But the path was not all rosy for Ram. As news of breaking of arrow spread like wildfire, Parshuram known for his anger came to the site. When he saw broken bow he asked who did it. Ram promptly made him calm with his courteous replies. When Parshuram figured out the true identity of Ram, he was very much pleased and blessed him.
Envoy was sent to Ayodhya with this good news. Dashratha prepared for a grand procession and arrived in Mithila. A grand ceremony marked the marriage of Ram and Sita. After few days, Dashratha departed for Ayodhya along with four newly wedded couples. For the people of Ayodhya, it turned out to be a festival of festivals.
