Sabari in Valmiki Ramayana

   SABARI is one of the popular characters from the epic Ramayana. But have you ever considered whether the character of Sabari was mentioned in Valmiki Ramayana or not?  Here is an interesting Twitter post with the same question.  Out of 83 votes polled, 72.3% (60 out of 83) voted YES and 27.7% (23 out of 83) voted NO.  This question got very less traction. So, posting again. I request to those who come across this post to RT for maximum reach.🙏 Was Sabari mentioned in Valmiki Ramayana or not? — The Phoenix🐦 (@3011_ajit) January 3, 2024 Now, we will see whether there is a mention of Sabari in Valmiki Ramayana or not. Balakanda Sarga-1 of Ramayana starts with Sage Narada narrating the characteristics of Lord Rama to Valmiki and in the process of explaining the characteristics, Sage Narada mentions all the important events in Lord Rama's life.  One such event was the killing of Kabanda,  मार्गमाणो वने सीतां राक्षसं सन्ददर्श ह । कबन्धन्नाम रूपेण विकृतं घोरदर्शनम् ।।1.1.55।। Me
