From the kingdom of Ayodhya to the isle of Lanka, we are transported to a land that has inspired morality and spiritual tradition for thousands of years. On the eve if his enthronement, Rama, the beloved prince of Ayodhya, is banished to the forest as a result of a sinister plot. Along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, Rama accepts his destiny and departs as the kingdom mourns his loss. His exile, however, proves to have a deeper meaning as Rama becomes the protector of the forest sages and sparks the fury of Ravana, the seemingly invincible demon who terrorizes both humans and gods alike. In a vengeful act, Ravana kidnaps Sita, taking her across the ocean to Lanka. Now Rama, with the help of an army of monkeys, must fight to reclaim his dear bride and his honor.
From the kingdom of Ayodhya to the isle of Lanka, we are transported to a land that has inspired morality and spiritual tradition for thousands of years. Rama, the king of Ayodya, comes to life through B.G. Sharma's never-before-seen compositions of this classic epic. From his intimate devotee, Hanuman, to his loving Queen, Sita, we are endeared to both text and illustration as these uniquely devotional paintings propel us through the story and into the heart of the Ramayana.
A retelling by Ranchor Prime of the story of Rama, the king of Ayodha. First told by the poet Valmiki in 24,000 Sanskrit verses more than 2000 years ago and then memorised and retold by Valmiki's disciplines and passed from generation to generation, the Ramayana has been central to Indian life for centuries. It is a classic tale that ranges from kingdoms in the mountains to the island of Lanka and includes vivid characters like Hanuman, Rama's loyal monkey servant, and the demon king Ravana. This volume includes a set of devotional paintings.

Mahavira is known as the founder of the Jain religion. His life was strikingly similar to the life of his contemporary, Gautama Buddha. Like him, Mahavira renounced his throne to seek enlightenment. His most celebrated doctrine, non-violence, was made famous in the 20th century by Gandhi, a student of Jainism. His travels and teachings are finely retold here, accompanied by original, full-color paintings. The Gentle Hero is a worthy addition to any library of the world's great faiths.
The Birth of Kirtan: The Life and Teachings of Chaitanya is the biography of a mystic saint who pioneered devotional yoga (Bhakti) in sixteenth-century India and started the practice of sacred chanting (kirtan) that has now spread around the world. While Chaitanya's practice has become a global movement over the last five hundred years, little is generally known about this spiritual reformer, as the two principal texts recounting his life were written in Bengali in the sixteenth century. In The Birth of Kirtan, Bhakti scholar and teacher Ranchor Prime adapts these two narratives into a moving and emotionally charged English-language biography for a modern audience. His poetic retelling is complemented by full-color reproductions of never-before-published nineteenth-century paintings of Chaitanya's life.
With over sixty stunning plates of original art, Prince of Dharma is a bold and glorious rendering of the life of the Buddha. Author Ranchor Prime (Ramayana: A Tale of Gods & Demons; Vedic Ecology) brings to life the inspired art of award-winning artist B.G. Sharma (Form of Beauty) with a sensitive, immensely readable, and rarely seen biography of the Buddha. From his birth as a prince to his final lesson in achieving nirvana, Sharma captures it all. Ornamented throughout with quotes from A Dhammapada for Contemplation by Ajahn Munindo, the combination of Prime's story and Sharma's art culminate in the most unique contribution to the canon of Buddhist literature and art that has emerged since the Buddha took birth thousands of years ago.
