Śrī Rāmacaritamānas (Devanāgarī: श्री राम चरित मानस) (Hindi/ Avadhi) is an epic poem composed by the 16th-century Indian poet, Goswami Tulsidas (c.1532–1623) (also transliterated as Tulasidasa). An English translation of Rāmacaritamānasa is "The Ocean of the Deeds of Rama".

The Rāmacaritamānas is a retelling of the events of the Sanskrit epic Ramayana, concerning the exploits of Rama, prince of Ayodhya. The great poem is also called Tulsi-krita Ramayana, or "The Ramayana of Tulsidas".
The poem revisits Ramayana of Valmiki, but is not a mere retelling of the Sanskrit epic. Where Valmiki has condensed the story, Tulsidas has expanded, and, conversely, wherever the elder poet has lingered longest, there his successor has condensed.
