Lord Rama was upraised to be a flawless ruler. He embodied justice, compassion, honesty, power and all other good abilities. The people of Ayodhya were very pleased to know that Maharaj Dasarath had such a capable successor. Though, as fate will have it, to honor a vow that his father had prepared, Lord Rama agreed fourteen years of a deportee to the forest. Everybody was heartbroken. No one might believe the state, but since Lord Rama was so honorable, He readily admitted His fate. He left His father’s fortress for the forest escorted by His brother Laksmanplus His wife Sita Devi.

Laksmanplus Rama looked all over the place for Sitahowever could not find her. Rama thought of her continually and His mind was abstracted by grief because of her separation. He could not eat as well as hardly slept.
Lord Rama, Lakshman, loads of monkeys led through Hanuman, Sugrivaplus Angada, and crowds of bears led through Jambuvan, all reached on the bounds of Lanka prepared for battle. The battle cry was given as well as they began an outbreak in the city. The ruthless battle went on for several days plus nights. At one point Rama plus Lakshman have paralyzed through Ravana’s son Indrajit’stoxic arrows. Hanuman was forwarded to recover a special herb to heal them, however, when he flew to the Himalaya Foothills he found that the basils had hidden from sight.
Finally, Sita Devi was free and great revels followed. Though, to verify her chastity, Sita Devi arrived into a fire. Agni Dev, the spirit of fire himself, carried Sita Devi from inside the fire back toward Lord Rama, declaring to everybody her purity plus chastity. Now the fourteen years of deportee had ended as well as they all returned to Ayodhya, wherever Lord Rama governed for many, many years.
