Select Preferred Format
Overview

It was dharma that made Ram the rightful king of Ayodhya, and it was dharma that made Sita live the rest of her life raising two children in the forest. It was dharma that helped Ram defeat Ravana, and it was dharma that separated him from the love of his life.

While dharma made Ram follow rules even if it gave him unhappiness, Sita was under no such obligation. This is why the choices she made have had such a huge impact on the lessons the epic has to offer.

Sita’s Righteousness is a lesson in understanding the value of righteousness even in the most difficult circumstances. Narrated and illustrated by the inimitable Devdutt Pattanaik, this simple yet powerful story is a compelling read.
