INTRODUCTION

RAMAKIEN

In Thai literature, the Ramayana story is called Ramakien. The earliest evidence of the Ramakien dates back to the 13th century but it was mainly performed in the shadow puppet plays and dances which may have come originally from Java and Cambodia. The main story is very similar to Valmiki's text from India, but there are many deviations regarding the details. In this book you will find the infomation of a Ravana (also known as Tosakan)'s relative such as Kalakkee, Bunlaigalph, Mandodari, Phaina suriyavong, Indrajit, Sita, Rama, Suphanmatcha, Hanuman, Tosagirivan, Tosagirithorn, Sahas kuman, and sip rot.

STORY

RAMAKIEN

RAMAKIEN The Ramakien (รามเกี ย รติ ์ , "Glory of Rama", sometimes also spelled Ramakien) is Thailand's national epic, derived from the Hindu epic Ramayana. The word is derived from Sanskrit word Ramakhyan (Ram + Akhyan) where Akhyan means a long story or epic.

A number of versions of the epic were lost in the destruction of Ayutthaya in 1767. Three versions currently exist, one of which was prepared in 1797 under the supervision of (and partly written by) King Rama I. His son, Rama II, rewrote some parts of his father's version for khon drama. The work has had an important influence on Thai literature, art and drama (both the khon and nang dramas being derived from it).

While the main stor y is identical to that of the Ramayana, many other aspects were transposed into a Thai context, such as the clothes, weapons, topography, and elements of nature, which are described as being Thai in style. Although Thailand is considered a Theravada Buddhist society, the Hindu mythology latent in the Ramakien serves to provide Thai legends with a creation myth, as well as re-presentations of various spirits which complement beliefs derived from Thai animism. A painted representation of the Ramakian is displayed at Bangkok's Wat Phra Kaew, and many of the statues there depict characters from it. The Ramayana, holy revered text of Hindus, is believed by archaeologists and historians to be a collection of stories from Hindu mythology con-

centrating on the work of the gods in the lives of men, and was first written down, as legend states, in the forests of India by Valmiki in the 4th century BC. There are several holy sites in India that point to the reality of Rama's existence, including his birthplace, his palace, and the route of his journey to Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, the Ramayana came to Southeast Asia by means of Tamil Indian traders and scholars who traded with the Khmer kingdoms (such as Funan and Angkor) and Srivijaya, with whom the Indians shared close economic and cultural ties. In the late first millennium, the epic was adopted by the Thai people. The oldest recording of the early Sukhothai kingdom, dating from the 13th century, include stories from the Ramayana legends. The histor y of the legends

was told in the shade theater, shadow -puppet show in a style adopt from Indonesia, in which the character were portrayed by leather dolls manipulated to cast shadows on a nearby screen while the spectators watched from the other side. The Thai version of the legends were first written down in the 18th century, during the Ayutthaya kingdom, follow -ing the demise of the Sukhothai government. Most editions, however, were lost when the city of Ayutthaya was destroyed by armies from Burma (modern Myanmar) in the year 1767. The version recognized today was compiled in the Kingdom of Siam under the supervision of King Rama I (1736-1809), the founder of the Chakri dynasty, which still maintains the throne of Thailand. Between the years

of 1797 and 1807, Rama I supervised the writing of the well-known edition and even wrote parts of it. It was also under the reign of Rama I that construction began on the Thai Grand Palace in Bangkok, which includes the grounds of the Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The walls of the Wat Pra Kaew are lavishly decorated with paintings representing stories from the Ramakien. Rama II (1766–1824) further adapted his father's edition of the Ramakien for the khon drama, a form of theater performed by non-speaking Thai dancers with elaborate costumes and masks. Narrations from the Ramakien were read by a chorus to one side of the stage. This version differs slightly from the one compiled by Rama I, giving an

expanded role to Hanuman, the godking of the apes, and adding a happy ending. Since it’s introduction to the Thai people, the Ramakien has become a firm component of the culture. The Ramakien of Rama I is considered one of the masterpieces of Thai literature. It is still read, and is taught in the country's schools. In 1989, Satyavrat Shastri translated the Ramakien into a Sanskrit epic poem (mahakavya) named Ramakirtimahakavyam, in 25 sargas(cantos) and about1200 stanzas in 14 metres. This work won eleven national and international awards.

The king of Ayodhya Incarnation of God Vishnu, Marayada Purushottama The queen of Ayodhya, Sita

Rama is the 7th avatar of the God Vishnu, and a king of Ayodhya. Along with Krishna, the 8th avatar of Vishnu, Rama’s considered to be the most important avatar of Vishnu. He is also one of the most popular gods and is widely worshipped throughout Nepal and India. In a few Rama-centric sects, Rama is considered the Supreme Being, rather than an avatar. Rama was born in Suryavansha after king Raghu. Born as the eldest son of Kausalya and Dasharatha, king of Ayodhya, Rama is referred as Maryada Purushottama, literally the Perfect Man or Lord of Self-Con trol or Lord of Virtue. Rama is the husband of Sita, who is an Avatar of Lakshmi and the embodiment of perfect womanhood. Rama's life and journey is one of perfect adherence to dharma despite harsh tests of life and time. He is pictured as the ideal

man and the perfect human. For the sake of his father's honour, Rama abandons his claim to Kosala's throne to serve an exile of 14 years in the forest. His wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, unable to live without Rama, decide to join him, and all 3 spend the 14 years in exile together. While in exile, Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, the Rakshasa monarch of Lanka. After a long and arduous search that tests his personal strength and virtue, Rama fights a colossal war against Ravana's armies. In a war of powerful and magical beings, greatly destructive weapon-ry and battles, Rama slays Ravana in battle and liberates his wife. Having completed his exile, Rama returns to be crowned king in Ayodhya (the capital of his kingdom) and eventually becomes emperor, r ules with happiness, peace, prosperity and justice—a period known as Rama Rajya. PA G E 1 5

His purpose is to defeat all of demons, especially Ravana, who is Nontok reborn and have ten faces with twenty arms.

Rama's courage in searching for Sita and fighting a terrible war to rescue his wife and their honour is complemented by Sita's absolute devotion to her husband's love, and perfect chastity despite being Ravana's captive. Rama's younger brothers, namely Lakshmana, Shatrughna, Bharata strongly complement his piety, virtue and strength, and they are believed by many to belong to the Maryada Purushottama and the 17th Avatara, mainly embodied by Rama. Rama's piety and virtue attract powerful and devoted allies such as Hanuman and the Vanaras of Kishkindha, with whose help he rescues Sita. The legend of Rama is deeply influential and popular in the societies of the Indian subcontinent and across South East Asia. Rama is revered for his unending compassion, courage and devotion to religious values and duty.

‘Hanuman’ was born to the humanoid creatures called the vanaras. His mother Anjana was an apsara who was born on earth as a female vanara due to a curse. She would be redeemed from this curse on her giving birth to a son. The Valmiki Ramayana states that his father Kesari was the son of Brihaspati and that Kesari also fought on Rama's side in the war against Ravana. Anjana&Kesari performed intense prayers to Shiva to get a child. Pleased with their devotion, Shiva granted them the boon they sought. Hanuman, inanother interpretation, is the incarna-tion or reflection of Shiva himself. Hanu man is often called the son of the deity Vayu; several different traditions account for the Vayu's role in Hanuman's birth. One story mentioned in Eknath's Bhavartha

her husband Kesari prayed Shiva for a child. By Shiva's direction, Vayu transfer Ramayana (16th century CE) states that when Anjana was worshiping Shiva, the King Dasharath of Ayodhya was also per-forming the ritual of Putrakamayagna in order to have children. As a result, he received some sacred pudding(payasam) to be shared by his three wives, leading to the births of Rama, Lakshmana, Bha-rata, and Shatrughna. By divine ordinance, a kite snatched a fragment of that pudding and dropped it while flying over the forest where Anjana was engaged in worship. Vayu, the Hindu deity of the wind, delivered the falling pudding to the out-stretched hands of Anjana, who consumed it. Hanuman was born to her as a result. Another tradition says that Anjana and PA G E 1 7

-red his male energy to Anjana's womb. Accordingly, Hanu man is identified as the son of the Vayu. After the war, and after reigning for sever-al years, the time arrived for Rama to depart to his supreme abode Vaikuntha. Many of Rama's entourage, including Sugriva, decided to depar t with him. Hanuman, however, requested from Rama that he will remain on earth as long as Rama's name was venerated by people. Sita accorded Hanuman that desire, and granted that his image would be installed at various public places, so he could listen to people chanting Rama's name. He is one of the immor-tals (Chiranjivi) of Hinduism.
