Itihāsa (narrative history)

Trijaṭā (त्रिजटा) is one of those demonesses who are kind to Sītā. She told the others to be kind to their captive and not to trouble her. She tells them about the dream she had at dawn. She dreamt that Rāma and Lakṣmaṇa were seated in an ivory palanquin shining like two suns. Waiting for them, Sītā, with all the decorations of a splendid princess, dressed in white, was standing on the peak of a mountain, whereas Rāvaṇa with shaven head was dressed all in black. All that she saw a propos of Rāma and his consort are of good omen, whereas for Rāvaṇa, there were signs of death. On hearing this, all demonesses are enveloped by distress.
