The ageing King Dasaratha therefore decided to install him as his successor. Preparations were made for a grand and splendid inaugural ceremony. Mother Sarasvati perverted the mind and and speech organ of Manthara, the hump-backed maidservant of Kaikeyi.

Kaikeyi was overjoyed to hear that Sri Rama would be crowned yuvraja the following day. But as Manthara addressed her, her mind slowly changed. Manthara made her believe that the inauguration would place her in an inferior position and that Bharata would be banished or killed. Consequently, she asked the king for the two boons he had once offered her: firstly, that Bharata should be installed as yuvraja, and secondly, that Sri Rama be banished to the forest for fourteen years.

It is only much later that Kaikeyi regains normalcy, and deeply repents her actions. The Lord embraced him, but could not accept his hospitality as he was under the vow not to enter a town.

Yodhya is the future passive participle, meaning "to be fought"; the initial a is the negative prefix; the whole, therefore, means "not to be fought" or, more idiomatically in English, "invincible". Satyopakhyana interprets the word slightly differently, stating that it means "that which cannot be conquered by sins" instead of enemies. The Adi Purana states that Ayodhya is called Saketa "because of its magnificent buildings which had significant banners as their arms". Bakker , the word may be derived from the roots sa and ketu "with banner" ; the variant name saketu is attested in the Vishnu Purana. Hence it was also referred to as "Kosala". History Gold carving depiction of the legendary Ayodhya at the Ajmer Jain temple The earliest of the Buddhist Pali-language texts and the Jain Prakrit-language texts mention a city called Saketa Sageya or Saeya in Prakrit as an important city of the Kosala mahajanapada.
