vrm.2.11 "Oh King of the Kings, Dasaratha Be true to your promise and protect your caste, character and birth.
vrm.2.12 After hearing the cruel words of Kaikeyi King Dasaratha got disturbed and suffered great agony for a while.

vrm.2.14 King Dasaratha, with bedimmed eyes, was unable, as it were, to see.
vrm.2.14 King Dasaratha hearing his words which were soothing and meaningful, was surrounded with grief once more.
vrm.2.15 King Dasaratha ordered that charioteer there again thus I am not sleeping.

vrm.2.24 King Dasaratha, supreme commander has authority over you and me also now.
vrm.2.34 King Dasaratha surrounded by women, seeing from a distance his son coming with folded hands, distressed as he was, rose swiftly from his seat.
vrm.2.34 Seeing Rama, King Dasaratha ran speedily towards him.
vrm.2.35 King" Dasaratha is unconquerable as great Indra, unshakable as mountain and imperturbable as a great ocean.

vrm.2.36 Bharata" will not accept the kingdom, which will become uninhabited, hollow and which will be absolutely unenjoyable like wine, quaffed of its spiriteous part, Oh noble soul!" While Kaikeyi who has cast off her shame was thus uttering th emost cruel words, King Dasaratha spoke these words to that lady with large eyes: Having charged me with a burden, Oh hostile woman, why do you prick me while I am carrying it?

vrm.2.36 "The highly righteous King Sagara abandoned Asamanja for perpetration sinful deeds as above.
vrm.2.36 You enjoy the kingdom for a long time, happily together with Bharata the King.
vrm.2.37 Hearing the words of the chief minister, Rama who was well versed in courtesy, spoke then to Dasaratha as follows: "Of what use for me, who have forsaken enjoyments, cast away attachment for everything and am going to live in the forest on nomadic food, Oh king, with an army accompanying me?" "Who, after giving away a first class Elephant, will work out his mind on a rope with which it is tied? What use is there for him through attachment to the rope after abandaning the excellent Elephant?" "Oh, the best among good men! So also, what use is there for me by the army Oh, King, when I am giving away absolutely all.
vrm.2.38 On seeing Seetha wearing bark of trees like a helpless woman, eventhough protected by her husband all the people there loudly cried out: Fie" upon you, Dasaratha!" Pained by that loud cry there, King Dasaratha lost interest in his life, religious merit and esteem.
