śrīrāma uvāca |
ādheḥ kathaṃ bhavedvyādhiḥ kathaṃ ca sa vinaśyati |
dravyāditarayā yuktyā mantrapuṇyādirūpayā || 29 ||

Rama rejoined:—But tell me sir, how the intrinsic causes produce the external diseases; and how are they removed by other remedies than those of medicinal drugs, as the muttering of mantra incantations and observance of pious acts and ceremonies.
