The Vaanara General Taara said: "I do not agree. Why should we end our
lives? Let us return to the cave of the tapasvini Swamyamprabha and live there happily.
There is everything in plenty there. Neither Sugreeva nor any one else can reach this
spot. We shall spend the rest of our lives, free from care."
But Hanumaan said: "What unworthy talk
is this! What pleasure is there in eating, drinking and sleeping in the cave, leaving our
families in faraway Kishkindha? Sugreeva is a good king whom we need not fear. And if
indeed Sugreeva is angry with us and determined to punish us, how can this cave give us
safety? Can it stand against Lakshmana's rage? Will he not smash it to pieces and kill us?
I see no benefit in Taara's counsel. Let us return and tell Sugreeva the whole truth and
beg for his forgiveness. This is the only way to safety."
