Recently, international relations have become crucial for the country's survival in this uncertain environment. This aspect necessitates the attention of new researchers and regulators. In light of this, the present study investigates the influence of the Indian epic "Ramayana" on morality teachings, responsibility consciousness, cultural attraction in India, and their role in international relations. In addition, the research explores the mediating effect of morality teachings, responsibility consciousness, and cultural attraction on Indian Epic and international relations. Using survey questionnaires, the researchers collected data from students majoring in philology at universities in Vietnam. The researchers also utilized SPSS-AMOS to examine the relationship between the variables under investigation. The results revealed that the Indian Epic has a positive relationship with morality teachings, responsibility awareness, and cultural appeal and that these factors have a positive relationship with international relations. In addition, the results revealed that morality teachings, responsibility awareness, and cultural attraction substantially mediate the relationship between the Indian Epic and international relations. The research assists policymakers in formulating regulations for enhancing international relations through moral instruction, responsibility consciousness, and cultural appeal.
