Let’s now turn to another example representing the internal diversity within Hinduism.  Please read the following two articles on the epic Ramayana.  The first is an overview of the epic from Professor Vinay Lal from UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles.)  The second is a 2011 news story from the Sunday Guardian about how an influential essay entitled 300 Ramayanas from the renowned scholar A.K. Ramanujan was removed from the B.A. syllabus of Delhi University.

Keeping in mind your reactions to both the readings above, please share your reflections in the discussion board.  What surprised you in these depictions?  What did you find compelling or challenging? Please post your response and respond to the posts of at least two other people.  The sources are below
