Eka Slokee Ramayana and its meaning

एकश्लोकीरामायणम्

आदौ रामतपोवनाभिगमनं हत्व मृगं काञ्चनं वैदेहीहरणं जटायुमरणं सुग्रीवसम्भाषणम् 
वालीनिग्रहणं समुद्रतरणं लङ्कापुरीदाहनं पश्चाद्रावणकुम्भकर्णहननं एतद्धि रामायणम् 



Once upon a time Prince Rama went to help Rishis in the forests.  He chased and killed the golden deer (Mareecha).  Meantime, Sita was kidnapped (by Ravana).  Jatayu was killed (trying to rescue Sita).  Rama made friends with Sugriva.  Vali (oppressing Sugriva) was killed.  The ocean was crossed (by Rama and his vaanara sena).  Lankapuri was burned (by Hanuman).  Later, Ranava and Kumbakarna were killed (by Rama).  This is the story (of Rama) called Ramayanam.
