Now, coming back to Goddess Mata Sita, if one is to observe and study her life, then it is strewn with many challenges, trials and tribulations. But she goes thru all that life brings her way, with complete grace and poise.
She follows her dharma (intrinsic righteous path) fulfilling the many roles that exist for any woman, such as that of a daughter, wife and mother with complete perfection.
It is because of her actions, where she follows all her duties and responsibilities with proper upholding of dharmic principles, that she can be considered as the Vedic Archetype of an ideal or perfect woman.
It should be noted that Goddess Mata Sita is the consort to Lord Shri Rama, who is the Vedic Archetype of an ideal (perfect) man.
Also, like all Vedic legends, Ramayana is not just a historic story, but symbolizes deep truths about the very nature of existence. Ramayana provides many helpful tips and guidance on how each one of us can lead a life that is in sync with our own dharma.
More on that some other time… for now, remember that these Vedic legends are very symbolic in their expression.
So, what you read as a story, is bound to have many deeper connotations.
