The Story
Rama & Sita is a story about Prince Rama, the great warrior, who was married to the beautiful Sita.

Prince Rama meant to take over the throne from his father the king, but his wicked stepmother had tricked his father into sending him away into the forest. With him went his faithful wife, Sita where they lived a simple, peaceful life in a small cottage.

One day, Sita was spotted by a demon king, named Ravana. When Ravana saw the beautiful Sita, he immediately came up with a plan to kidnap her and make her his wife by tempting her with a beautiful deer in the forest.

When she saw the deer, she asked Rama to catch it for her. As soon as Rama left for his quest to capture the deer, Ravana swooped down and swept Sita up into his chariot pulled by winged monsters. Despite her terror Sita thought quickly and scattered her jewelry piece by piece as a trail for Rama to follow.

Rama seached the world for Sita following her trail of jewelry. She was discovered on a private island refusing to marry Ravana.

Rama led a long and terrible war fighting evil demons to rescue his wife. At the very end, Rama used a special bow and arrow that had been made by the sky god where wind and fire guided the arrow to pierce Ravana's chest in a blinding flash. Ravana fell dead in an instant.

All the world rejoiced. The reign of the demons was over and Rama and Sita returned to their own country to rule. In every home, an oil lamp was put in the window to welcome back the Rama and Sita and their great army. The royal ruled happily for many years until it was time for them to leave their life on earth and return to heaven.

For Hindus, this story shows how good will always triumph over evil in the same way as a little oil lamp will destroy total darkness.
