Summary

Manuscript used for recitation or contemplation and is the twelfth section (sarga) of nineteen. Draws heavily from Hindu mythology and pantheons as well as assumes some knowledge of the storyline of the Rāmāyaṇa, its main characters, and gives a genealogical account of Rāma's dynastic background and lineage. Work is full of rich, poetic imagery of flora and fauna and references to courtly life and Hindu dharma and focuses, in particular, on the death of the demon Rāvaṇa.
