conjecture was like nectar to Raama's ears. They eagerly awaited 6e arrival of the
Vaanaras. In a short while a great clamour was in the air and the Vaanara hordes alighted
with cries of triumph.
Hanumaan and Angada leading, the Vaanaras marched to the presence of their king who with
Raama and Lakshmana was
awaiting their coming.
Hanumaan bowed and said: "Seen have I the Goddess of purity, your queen. She is safe
and well in Lanka. I salute her from here across space." And he turned southwards and
offered worshipful salutation.
Thus succinctly did Hanumaan convey to the Prince the glad news that Seeta was found and
was well in body and mind.
Sugreeva and Lakshmana, beside themselves with joy, embraced Raama.
