"Sita floats on an ocean of tears. Sita stands as the radical interface of love and suffering. Sita exists only for love. She personifies loyalty. She incarnates devotion. On an archetypal level, she stands for the feminine principle of loving submission -submission to the masculine, submission to the divine, submission to life itself." From "Awakening Shakti" by Sally Kempton
