I was reading required literature for my class Global Literature class, and I read somewhere in Yuddha 120,121, when Rama is approached by the Triune Hindu Gods (3 seperate hindu gods, no relation to the trinity of the Father, son and Holy Spirit), and Brahma the creators talks about Lord Narayana, proclaiming him to be the truth, eternal and the supreme dharma of the worlds.
A Believer may look at this and see a similar and compare it to Jesus Christ proclaiming himself as the ‘way, truth and the life’ in John 14:6.
I have to admit that I was a little surprised to see Narayana deemed as the truth, eternal and supreme-- but deep down, I believe that there’s something that seperates Jesus from this hindu epic (as good as this epic is).
Being that I started a similar thread about the texts of the Hymns of Aten, my core concern is this-- how does a believer like myself, when comparing the Ramayana ‘Yuddha’ to the Gospel of Christ.
I’m pretty sure a good starting point may be John 3:16 illustrating God’s love for the world and sharing himself, as his son, Jesus, to talk about eternal life.
