Chapter 1, Verse Nos. 41, 42 and 43
Mama tvayam vinaa vaasaha
pas`ya Lakshman`a samruagaha
tiryak yonigateeshu api
Yadeeshaa shikhinii kaamaat
Maam api evam vis`aalaakshii
Jaanakii jaata sambhramaa
yadi na apahrutaa bhaveet.
Rama and Lakshmana were searching for Sita, abducted by Ravana.
This month of flowers is difficult for me to live.(41).
See (Pas`ya), Lakshmana! Even an animal like a pea-hen is following her husband passionately. Had S`iita not been abducted, she would have followed me in ecstasy and passion.
*Good, that Rama and Sita, have passion. He is showing it. Then the ideal brother Rama is, he should have thought about the pitiable condition of Lakshmana who left his wife Urmila thirteen years back and his wife. Can't Rama have the compassion or empathy of uttering a verse for Lakshmana?
Is this the way, a person whose wife was abducted by an enemy, should think about, when forced to live apart? Is Sita an object of pleasure? Valmiki used about 70 verses in this chapter to describe Rama's aroused State. According to this chapter, Rama emerges as an ordinary person whose sexual passion can be aroused by seeing animals, birds and flowers. He does not at least once think of his duty considering his miserable state.
