Abstract

This chapter looks at the potential for dramatherapy practice within the epic of Ramayana as classical mythology from India, but, also, as having universally human implications. I am not presenting it in a scholastic manner in order to seek to persuade, but rather in the spirit of suggesting ‘points’ and ‘signs’ by which we might discover a synthesis between the notion that we, as individual humans, are part of a developing species facing choices and the belief in our essential spiritual natures. As an Anglo-Indian who was born and spent the first 20 years of my life in India, Ramayana had an enormous impact on my own development and learning. Now, I offer this chapter as a resource within a multicultural agenda.
