Rama enlightens every seeker in the spiritual field. He put into practice all that He deemed right. So, He set standards for every member of the household, society, nation and human race. He went into exile to maintain the highest ideal of filial reverence. He sent Sita to exile in order to maintain the highest ideal of a ruler responsive to the reaction of his subjects. The former holds forth the duty of Pitruvakya paripalana (respecting the command of the father) and the latter, the regal duty of Janavakya paripalana (respecting the wishes of the people). The root is the word of the parent or the people. The fruit is moksha (liberation).
