नदीं वैतरणीं घोरां रुधिरौघनिवाहिनीम् । असिपत्र वनं चैव भीमं पश्यसि रावण ॥

— श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अरण्यकाण्डे त्रिपञ्चाशस्सर्गः (१९ श्लोकम्)

Reminding Raavana of the terrifying, and the extremely agonizing fate of a person desiring other women, SeetaMaata explains: “O Raavana! You will fall into the horrifying Vaitarini in which blood flows unbearably. You will have to pass through the forest filled with trees having leaves that are cut-throat sharp like a sword (So be careful and return me to ShriRaama)”.
