Ramayana is an integral part of the Indian culture since ages. Therefore, we find it published in all the Indian languages. Many Jain versions of Ramayana are available. Some of them have picture in black and white, but the TV age or computer age demanded something more than this. The modern time demands attractive four colour pictures; for they make a book not only attractive but also interesting. "One picture is more than a thousand words." Diksadanesvari Acaryadevasri Gunaratnasurisvaraji m.s. had conceived and nutured a dream of Ramayana since past fourteen years. His sermons on Ramayana have stirred and touched innumerable hearts at Jodhpur, Pali, Nagore, Jalore, Sirohi, Bikaner, Ahmedabad etc. When he narrated the events from the life of Anjanasundari and Sitaji at Bikaner, artist like sri Dilip Soni and many other followers of non-Jain faiths also couldn't control their tears. Jain Ramayana: The Jain pantheon states that Lord Munisuvrat Svami, a Tirthankara, was born more than 11,75,000 years ago. Suvrata Muni, the spiritual teacher and master of Sri Rama, was a descendant of Munisuvrat Svami. King Anaranya, the grand father of Rama, was born during his regime. The average life span of a man at that was much longer. Rama must have been born much later. The Jain pantheon mentions that Lord Mahavira Svami learnt about Ramayana with his Kevalagyan and narrated it to his disciple Ganadhara Gautama, who compiled it in the form of sutras. It reached Sri Vimalasuri through the oral tradition.Printed Pages: 128.
