Valmiki, after composing Ramayana, taught it to Lava and Kusa (Rama & Sita’s sons, who were growing up in Valmiki’s Ashram then). It was Lava and Kusa who sang it first in Ayodhya and then in Rama’s assembly. After that it was just passed on as oral tradition from Guru to Sishya.

Even for someone who does not know any Sanskrit, this book is a pleasure. Just read the English translation. It gives such wonderful descriptions, written in ancient times. Like the description of a forest ashram in the opening chapter.

I got this book as a way to improve my Sanskrit by reading a great story. By having the English translation right on the facing page, I don't have to look up words, which is a real time saver!

There are 5 books published by Clay Library for the Ramayana. I started with this one, Book 3, because Rama's time in the forest is my favorite. He has left his old life and is transformed in the course of his forest sojourn.

Like the other volumes in this series this volume also gives the original Sanskrit text of Aranya-kanda in Roman script, a very helpful feature. Excellent price, excellent publication.
