Hanumaan could find to say in reverent admiration was that what she said was only what was
worthy of Raama's wife.
"What message am I to
carry to Raama?" he asked.
"I am eager to be in his presence," she answered.
"That is all."
Hanumaan returned to Raama and gave an
account of his visit. For some reason Raama's face now darkened and with lack-lustre eyes
he fell into a brown study. A little later he turned to Vibheeshana and said:
"Ask Seeta to bathe and bedeck herself
and bring her here."
When the message reached Seeta in the Asoka Vana, she said:
"I would rather go as I am."
