International Ramayana Festival 

BALIwww.COM report that Bali will be holding the first International Ramayana Festival. The festival will be in conjunction with the 28th Bali Arts Festival (PKB) to be held from June 17 to July 15, 2006.

Vietnam, Cambodia, India, the Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia, together with four of Indonesia's provinces, namely West Java, Central Java, Yogyakarta and East Java, have all confirmed that they will participate in the festival.

The Mystica on-line encyclopedia has articles on the epic Ramayana, which is believed to be the first poetical work in Indian literature and has been credited to Valmiki (c. fourth century BC). Like the later Mahabharata, it is accepted as being based on fact.

Lord Rama is the hero of the story, in which he rescues his wife Sita from the wicked devil king, Ravana and reminds Hindus that good will always triumph over evil.
