Read & Revise: Rama goes to the forest
When he obtained the permission of the King, Rama went along with the muni to the forest. There, in the forest, many rishis lived in ashrams. They always meditated and did sacrifices. During that time many demons obstructed them. To protect the munis from the demons, came Rama. Even though he was a boy, that brave [Rama] killed many demons with arrows. Wherever Rama went, [from] there the demons were scared and fled. Wherever Rama and Lakshmana saw [the] demons (there) they cut off their limbs. When all the demons were killed or departed, then Rama leaves the forest and goes to Mithila. In that country a very wise king named Janaka ruled. Janaka [had an] extremely charming daughter named Sita. The people think she is the foremost amont all women. All [the] kings thought 'I will marry Sita' Therefore they assembled in Mithila.
