संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

एकश्लोकि रामायणम्

आदौ रामतपोवनादिगमनं हत्वा मृगं काञ्चनम्
वैदेहीहरणं जटायुमरणम् सुग्रीवसम्भाषणम्।
वालीनिर्दलनं समुद्रतरणं लङ्कापुरीदाहनं
पश्चात् रावणकुम्भकर्णहननम् एतद्धि रामायणम्॥

ādau rāmatapovanādigamanaṁ hatvā mṛgaṁ kāñcanam
vaidehīharaṇaṁ jaṭāyumaraṇam sugrīvasambhāṣaṇam|
vāalīnirdalanaṁ samudrataraṇaṁ laṅkāpurīdāhanaṁ
paścāt rāvaṇakumbhakarṇahananam etaddhi rāmāyaṇam||

A wonderful rendition of the great epic in one verse! I am still unsure as to who said this, but a guess is that Hanuman narrated this to Bharata on the latter's request of what happened in the 14 years!
