At night, Rama decided to evade his people and become lost to them so that they would return peacefully to their homes. He went deeper into the forest after crossing the boundaries of the kingdom.
Soon, Rama, Lakshmana and Sit a came to Sringiberapura on the banks of the Ganga. They met the hunter-chief, Guha, who offered his own kingdom for Rama to rule. Rama declined the offer and said he must lead a hermit's life in order to carry out his father's wishes.
Guha was an expert boatman. At Rama's request he got a boat ready and ferried the two princes and Sita across the river.
