The philosophy contained in the story to this day is still relevant to the context of today's life.

There are still many old Balinese people who tell the story of the Ramayana to their grandchildren and the younger generation.

Ramayana Fragment

Rama is the heir to the throne of the Ayodya Kingdom and is married to Sita/Sinta. The story begins with his exile by the decree of Ayanda Paduka Raja Dasarata as a result of deception by Rama's stepmother.

the story of the ramayana fragments

The exile of Rama and Sita and their brother Laksmana in the Dandaka forest began the life of these three people in the Dandaka forest to run peacefully.

But unbeknownst to them, the Forces of Evil are watching closely. The evil Ravana The king of Alengka, full of lust and ambition, wanted the enchanting beauty of Sita.

Ravana seduces Sita

Ravana also sends his prime minister named Marica to try and bring Sita to him.

With her magic power, Marica's turned into a golden deer and she entered the forest to attract Sita's attention to the beauty of the golden deer.

Ravana Kecak dance

When Sita saw the golden Deer Kencana, Sita was fascinated and asked Rama to catch it for her. Rama also chased the golden deer and left Sita and his brother Laksmana with the message "Laksmana, protect my wife Sita and don't even leave this house when I chase the Golden Deer".

Sita Hears Rama's Voice

While waiting, Sita heard the illusory voice of Rama's cry for help. He forced Laksamana to follow Rama, but remembering his promise, Lakshmana refused and there was a heated argument between Sita and Lakshmana, accusing him of being a coward.

In the end, Laksmana helped Rama on the condition that Sita should not come out even under any circumstances from the circle he formed on the ground.

Sita Hears Rama's Voice

Uluwatu Kecak Dance

Sita was left alone in the forest. Of course it would be an easy opportunity to fall into Ravana's trickery.

Ravana also disguised himself as an old ascetic who was in pain and hunger asking for alms. Sita falls in pity.

Sita stepped outside the circle in good faith to provide the old ascetic with food and drink.

It was the opportunity that Ravana grabbed and kidnapped Sita and took her to his palace in Alengka.

Ravana tried his best to seduce Sita but it was in vain.

Battle of Megananda and Lakshmana

When in the palace of Alengka, Sita poured her heart about her fate in deep sorrow. At that time Hanoman appeared and said that his arrival was on the messenger of Rama by proving a ring of Sang Rama.

Then Sita gave her hairpin to Hanuman as a sign to show that Sita was still alive and wanted to return to Rama's arms.

Meanwhile Rama and Laksamana are on an odyssey looking for Sita along with Tualen.

They met Meganada, Ravana's son and a great battle broke out between them.

Hanuman in Uluwatu Kecak Dance

Meganada uses the power of his knowledge and shoots arrows that can turn into a dragon. Meganda's supernatural powers almost beat Rama.

However, through this exciting battle, Meganda finally died in the hands of the Admiral.

The eagle, the king of all birds, who is a good friend of the king of Dasarata, came to join the rescue mission to free Sita and Rama.
