ततो दशरथो राजा रामः किं खेदवानिति ।
अपृच्छत्सर्वकार्यज्ञं वसिष्ठं वदतां वरम् ॥ १३ ॥

tato daśaratho rājā rāmaḥ kiṃ khedavāniti |
apṛcchatsarvakāryajñaṃ vasiṣṭhaṃ vadatāṃ varam || 13 ||

Afterwards the king Dasaratha asked Vasishtha, the best of speakers and well informed in all matters, as to the cause why Rama was so sorrowful.
