लक्ष्मीश्चन्द्रादपेयाद्वा हिमवान् वा हिमं त्यजेत् । अतीयात् सागरो वेलां न प्रतिज्ञामहं पितुः ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अयोध्याकाण्डे एकादशोत्तरशततमस्सर्गः (१८व श्लोकमु)

ShriRaama spoke this shloka to Bharata illustrating His unshakable will for following the path of Truth: “One day Moonlight may get separated from the Moon, ice may get separated from the Himalayas, oceans may breach the land, but I will never let down my father’s promise”.
