In Vachanamrut Gadhada Last 11, Swaminarayan Bhagwan gives the example of Sitaji's understanding. After returning to Ayodhya, Rama Bhagwan had to send Sitaji to the forest (see "Purpose of Incarnations"). Swaminarayan Bhagwan explains, "When Janakiji was exiled to the forest by Ramachandraji, she began to greatly lament. Lakshmanji was also very grieved at the time. But then Sitaji told Lakshmanji, 'I am not crying because of my own saddness, I am crying due to Ramachandraji's saddness. Raghunathji is very compassionate, and because he has exiled me to the forest due to society, he must be thinking, 'I have sent Sita to the forest without her fault.' Knowing this and being compassionate, he must be experienceing great saddness in his mind. So please tell Ramachandraji that, 'Sita has no saddness. She will go to Valmiki's hermitage and happily engage in your devotion. So do not be saddened on account of Sita's saddness.'" Thus, she never saw any faults in God.
