Sri Rama is the pivot on whom the whole fabric of this immortal book is woven. It is therefore called Ramayana or the story of Rama. He is the model to the young and the old, to the man of the world and to the recluse absorbed in the glory of the Self. He embodies virtue and ardently applies it to life in conflicting circumstances. Though stationed in the mundane he is at the core supremely above it.
Sita is the ideal wife of Rama. The word Sita ' means the furrow made by a plough. This girl was born without parents. As a daughter of the Earth she was found in a furrow and so she was called Sita, brought up by the King Janaka. Sita is the embodiment of purity and womanly virtues. She conquered misery by calmly enduring it. Sita is the last word on womanly perfection.
