Sita's desire

Sita, perceiving Parvati, understanding their shared being, bowed low and said,

Oh, Parvati, you saw Shiva, and loved Him, but he did not see you, nor could he love you if he did - not wholly as the partridge sees and loves the moon, for you shine too, and are worthy of that love you desired. Ganesh and Kartikeya are not your only children: you have been the mother to every being. Beyond time, beyond eternity, beyond the Vedas, beyond depth, the co-condition of existence and non-existence, your play is with all creation. You entice, you are the motivation. Merely seeing you has led to the greatest satisfaction, all beings bow down before you, and are content. You know my heart's desire, it is your heart, and your desire too. Within that heart we share, within that desire we share, we never part: I need not speak my thoughts, for they are yours.

Parvati, perceiving Sita, understanding their shared being, smiled and placed a flower lei around Sita's neck to honor Her. When Sita accepted the honor, Parvati was filled with joy, and happiness, and said,

Oh, Sita, I will speak my thoughts, because they are yours. Be assured. What you desire is already yours; the discomfort you feel is merely your desire, not the wanting of it.

Narada always speaks words pure and true: He whom you desire will be your husband.
