Rāmacaritra (रामचरित्र) or Rāmacaritrabhāṣā is the name of a work (classified as Renderings of Sanskrit classics).—The Rāmacaritra-bhāṣā (in Rajasthani) is included in the collection of manuscripts at the ‘Vincenzo Joppi’ library, collected by Luigi Pio Tessitori during his visit to Rajasthan between 1914 and 1919.—As stated by the author, who could also be the copyist, this work is based on the Brahmāṇḍapurāṇa. As often in Purāṇas, the story is told by Śiva as an answer to Pārvatī’s questions (see beginning and end). This Purāṇa is well-known to include a lengthy Adhyātmarāmāyaṇa. Indeed, this is the focus of the present Rajasthani rendering.
