    अनन्यभावामनुरक्तचेतसं त्वया वियुक्तां मरणायनिश्चिताम् | नयस्व मां साधु कुरुष्व याचनाम् न ते मयाऽतो गुरुता भविष्यति || २-२७-२२

  3. 23

    तथा ब्रुवाणामपि धर्मवत्सलो न च स्म सीतां नृवरो निनीषति | उवाच चैनां बहु सन्निवर्तने वने निवासस्य च दुःखितां प्रति || २-२७-२३

    Although Sita was thus appealing, best of men ( Rama ), devoted to righteousness, was (still) unwilling to take her. In order to dissuade her, he began to describe to the mournful Sita the many hardships of forest life. [2-27-21]
