Medieval retelling of the epic story of the Rāmāyaṇa, wherein the hero Rāma is identified with the universal spirit (adhyātma) and is nonviolent; narrative takes the form of a dialogue between the Hindu deities Śiva (as Maheśa) and Pārvatī (as Umā); traditionally ascribed to the legendary author Vyāsa. In this third section (kāṇḍa) of the Adhyātmarāmāyaṇa, Rāma visits various ashrams in the forest and Sītā is abducted by the demon Rāvaṇa; however, Sītā is hidden from the demon who kidnaps an illusory Sītā in her place. Manuscript is missing beginning of text.
