When God Ram, Sita and Lakshman depart for exile, they meet Sage Jabali on their way to the forest. He tried to influence Ram to ignore his father’s wish and return to Ayodhya.
He said, “Dharma, truth, good conduct, character, etc. are a useless imposition on us. You should not care much about it and return to Ayodhya.” God Ram replied: “Looking at a person’s conduct and character, only you can determine whether he is born into a good family or boasting himself. Also, you can find his character whether he is unblemished or blemished.”
You should be attentive to the attack from the lair person in the same way as the snake. Truth is the sole controller of the world, and the truth is rooted in Dharma.
