In the Ramayana, the hero, Rama, lived his whole life by the rules of righteousness. Prince Rama was the eldest of four sons and was to become king when his father retired from ruling.
His stepmother, however, wanted to see her son Bharata, Rama’s younger brother, become king. Remembering that the king had once promised to grant her any two wishes she desired, she demanded that Rama be banished and Bharata be crowned. The king had to keep his word to his wife and ordered Rama’s banishment. Rama accepted the decree unquestioningly. When Sita, Rama’s devoted and chaste wife, heard Rama was to be banished, she begged to accompany him to his forest retreat. Rama agreed, and Rama, Sita and his brother Lakshmana all went to the forest to live in exile for 14 years. Later in the story, when Ravana, the evil King of Lanka, abducted Sita, Rama mustered the aid of an army of monkey soldiers to built a causeway across to Lanka to released Sita and bring her safely back to Ayodhya.
