Rāmāyana

Reference to this Epic Poem does not occur in the Piṭaka or in the early books.

Even in the Commentaries reference thereto is rare (e.g., DA.i.76; MA.i.163, as Sītāharana), and then it is only condemned as “unprofitable talk” (niratthakakathā).

Only in the later Chronicles, such as the Cūḷavaṃsa (e.g. Cv.lxiv.42), is the work actually mentioned by name. See also Rāma (5).
