daśaratho na bhītaḥ

vasiṣṭho rājānaṃ mantritavān. daśaratho na bhītaḥ. kiṃ daśaratho rāmaṃ vanaṃ gamayiṣyati?

daśarathaḥ:

rāma! lakṣmaṇa! āgacchatam!

rāmo lakṣmaṇaś ca rājānaṃ draṣṭum āgacchataḥ.

daśarathaḥ:

rāma, gaccha viśvāmitreṇa saha. bahavo balavanto rākṣasā vane vasanti. tvayā sarve vanasya rākṣasā mārayitavyāḥ.

lakṣmaṇa, gaccha rāmeṇa saha. tvaṃ rāmaś ca viśvāmitreṇa saha gamiṣyathaḥ.

rāmaḥ:

ahaṃ gacchāmi, rājan. ahaṃ lakṣmaṇaś ca vanaṃ gamiṣyāvaḥ. ahaṃ lakṣmaṇaś ca sarvān vana­rākṣasān mārayiṣyāvaḥ.

lakṣmaṇaḥ:

ahaṃ gacchāmi, rājan. āgaccha, rāma! gacchāvaḥ.
