Surely this sublimely beautiful lady, who seems like one steadfast in true love
in a tempest-tossed sea of troubles, is Raama's beloved queen. It is for her that Raama is
consumed by a three-fold agony-grief for her suffering, wrath for the insult
to her and heart-broken pangs at separation from her. Surely he is ever in her heart and
she in his, and in truth they are not parted or they could not live."
And as he continued to see her, his heart
leapt back across the ocean and sought Raama's feet in adoration. And again he looked at
Seeta and said to himself: "It was for the sake of this divine lady that the mighty
Vaali, the peer of Raavana in prowess, was slain; for her that Kabandha and Viraadha met
their death, and fourteen thousand fierce Raakshasas with Khara, Dooshana and Trisiras
crimsoned with their gore the glades of Janasthaana. It was for her that the splendid
sovereignty of the Vaanaras was wrested from the heroic Vaali and given to Sugreeva.
