Akhand Ramayan Paath is the process of reciting the whole of the epic Ramayan, nonstop, which approximately takes 24 hours.
Shri Ramcharitmanas, otherwise called Shri Tulsikrit Ramayana, is an epic composed by Tulsidas (also known as Goswami Tulsidas). He was an Indian bhakti poet, a holy person, reformer and scholar of the sixteenth century, renowned for his commitment to Lord Rama. Tulsidas was acclaimed in his lifetime to be a reincarnation of Valmiki, the original writer and composer of the epic poem Ramayana in Sanskrit.
The expression “Akhand” implies ‘with no break’ or ‘unbroken’. Thus, Akhand Ramayan Paath is recitation of the epic Shri Ramcharitmanas without any interruptions, through the process of reciting all of the 7 Kaands or sections of the poem.
