The holy Ramayana month started on July 16th. In the month of Karkidakam, the last month of the Malayalam calendar, we cleanse our minds and bodies, nourishing it with all good things, thoughts and deeds. This month is special for all Hindus as daily Ramayana Parayanam is done in their homes along with all other activities. It is believed that reading the Ramayana helps one attain Moksha.
At our school, we have Ramayana recital after the 4th period every day. The entire school gets into a spiritual mood at that time. The teachers and students chant the verses of Ramayana during the specific time.
