The Campūrāmāyaṇa is one of the most popular, and beautiful campū kāvyas of Samskṛta. Composed by the royal poet Bhoja, it employs extremely attractive language and expressions to retell the story of Rāma in an enchanting way. The Bāla and Sundara kāṇḍas of this work are very popular among students, and prescribed for study in various examinations.
Sundarakāṇḍa is prescribed for study in the Kovida exam (Fifth level of the Chittoor series). In these video lectures, Smt. Vidhya Ramesh takes the learners through the kāvya in simple Sanskrit, giving anvaya as per the ākāṅkṣā order, word-by-word meaning, and comparisons to the descriptions and verses from the Vālmīki Rāmāyaṇa.
