Storyboard Text

  • The king of Ayodhya, Dasaratha, was growing old and was sad that he did not have an heir to his throne. One day, a sage came and helped him have children by performing a sacred rite to please the Gods. This made Dasaratha very happy and he was joyful.
  • "I will have sons!"
  • Vishnu made a potion that was given to the king’s wives to help with having sons and would grant each son a boon. His three wives had four children named Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Satrughna. Vishnu had been born as a Rama in the form of a human to defeat a demon, named Ravana.
  • Rama
  • Lakshmana
  • Bharata
  • Sutrughna
  • When all of the brothers grew up, another sage came to the kingdom and asked the king for Rama to come on a journey with him to defeat demons that were disturbing his rites. While Dasaratha was sad, he allowed Rama to go, and Lakshmana came with him.
  • "I pray, Dasaratha, that you allow me to take Rama with me to protect my sacred rite."
  • When they arrived at the place where the sage performed his rites, the she-demon Tataka appeared. Rama and Lakshmana helped killed the she-demon, and Rama pierced her heart with an arrow. They continued their journey and help rid the area of demons.
