Who Is Valmiki?

Valmiki was a Brahmin by birth. His works are

”The Ramayana” and ”The Yoga Vasishtha”.

He was the 10th son of Prachetasa, belonging

to the lineage of sage Bhrigu. As a  boy, he was

separated from his parents in a forest and fell

into the hands of a childless robber couple.

They brought him up as their own son. That

is how Ratnakara (Valmiki)began his career

as a robber.
