answered: "Lay aside your sorrow, dear princess. Raama, Lakshmana and the Vaanara
army will descend on Lanka destroy the Raakshasas and redeem you. Have no doubt."
As he was about to go, Seeta said again: "Should you not stay here somewhere, for a
while, and rest? Should you return at once? Your visit has given me such great
consolation and made me forget my grief for a while. When you leave, I shall sink again in
my sea of sorrow. You came here crossing the great ocean. How will Raama and the big army
cross it? Have you thought of that?" Doubts assailed her once again.
"Have no doubt, my queen!" said Hanumaan. "Do you think I am the only
Vaanara that could cross the sea? There is not a Vaanara but has more power and skill than
I. Not only Sugreeva ' but many in his army can fly round the world. What is this arrow
sea to them? There are thousands among us who can roam in the sky. Have no doubt whatever.
