- Medieval retelling of the epic story of the Rāmāyaṇa, wherein the hero Rāma is identified with the universal spirit (adhyātma) and is nonviolent; narrative takes the form of a dialogue between the Hindu deities Śiva (as Maheśa) and Pārvatī (as Umā); traditionally ascribed to the legendary author Vyāsa.
