While the Muni was saying this, Rama appeared before the regal assembly and prostrated himself at the feet of his father, and then at the feet of Vasistha, Viswamitra, Brahmins well versed in all departments of knowledge, and the teachers imparting learning. Then having received the prostrations of his inferiors, he recognised their salutations with words of respect, and gestures of the eye. On the king asking him to come over, and sit on his lap in the throne, he merely spread his folded cloth on the ground and sat on it without going up to him.
Both these stages are necessary to a progressing ego. The ego should first get into desires and be tinged with Ahankara; so that, through such a course, it may learn the lessons at their hands and after the lessons are learnt it no longer needs the desires and gets out of them. This is the reason why, in that, valuable work called The Light on the Path, it is said: „Seek in the heart the source of evil and expunge it. It lives fruitfully in the heart of the devoted disciple as well as in the 29 LAGHU YOGA VASISTHA heart of the man of desire.
After this was over, three others of true Jnana and hence without Ahankara were created afresh by the Asuras and sent against the Devas, Finding them too hard to combat with, the passive powers of Devas again implored Vishnu for aid. In this instance, Vishnu came directly to the field of battle and took the 3 Mayavic personages away, as men of true Jnana find their asylum in Him alone. Thus we find that the desires in the external world which have at first no hold on the subtle „I‟ in this world get a hold over it and concrete it through, as it were, a play of spiral game with it.
