Into The Impenetrable Forest


All was well in the kingdom of Kosala until the boys reached their sixteenth year, when an old sage came to plead with King Dashrata. The old sage lived in a hermitage deep in an impenetrable forest and devoted his life to prayer. His devotions, however, had lately been disrupted by demons wrecking his sacrificial offerings. He came to ask King Dashrata for the aid of his two eldest sons, Rama and Lakshmana, to defeat the demons. King Dashrata was devastated and feared for the lives of his sons, but could not refuse the holy man's request.

The old sage led Rama and Lakshmana into the impenetrable forest to his hermitage.
