The Ramayana ( Sanskrit:Rāmāyaṇam) is an ancient Indian epic poem which narrates the struggle of the divine prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana and Rama's return to Ayodhya to be crowned king.
The text consists of seven books : The problem with the oral tradition is that more than 300 variants of the Ramayana are known.
2. Ayodhya-Kanda (steps 7 and 8 of the universal path)
7. Uttara-Kanda (later appended)
Books 1-6 are an allegory of step 1 - 15 of the universal path.
Sita symbolizes the awakened Kundalini - therefore she is the most beautiful woman of her time (like Draupadi of the Pandavas in the Mahabharata).
