Angada Wishes to Stay On in Ayodhya
Remembering the devotees' services, Bharata along with Shatrughana, his younger brother and Laksmana went to see them off. Angada's heart was full of love and he would turn over and over again to have another look at Lord Råma. He would repeatedly salute Him by prostrating on the ground and expect that Lord Råma might ask him to stay on. He was saddened on recalling the manner in which Lord Råma looked, talked, walked and smilingly welcomed His friends. But when he perceived the Lord's bent of mind, he left after uttering many courteous words and stashing the Lord's lotus feet in his heart. Having seen off all the monkeys with great respect, Bharata and his younger brothers returned.
Hanuman Begs Sugriv to Let Him Continue Serving Lord Ram
Then Hanumåna held the feet of Sugriva, and entreated him in several ways: O Dev! After spending a few more days in serving Lord Raghuvir's feet,I will come again and have darshan of your feet. (Sugriva said) O Son of the Wind God! You are a storehouse of merit (that the Lord has kept you in His service.) Go and serve Lord Rama, the abode of mercy. Saying so, all the monkeys departed. However, Angada said:O Hanuman! Listen!

With folded hands,I request you to convey my prostrations to the Lord and remind Lord Raghunath (the Lord of the Raghus) of me, from time to time. Saying so, Angada,the son of Bali began his journey.That is when Hanumån came back and gave an account of Angada's love to the Lord.Listening to which the Lord was immersed in the ecstasy of love. (Kakbhusundi said) O Garuda! The heart of Rama is much harder than adamantine and more tender than a flower. Tell me therefore, He can be understood by whom.

Guha Adores Lord Ram
Thereafter the compassionate Lord Rama called for the chief of the Nishadas (Guha) and presented him with jewels and clothes as a token of His gratitude. He then said: Now you ought to also return home. You must remember Me there and follow the sanctions of religion in thought, word and deed. You are My friend and a brother to Me just like Bharata.You must continue to visit Ayodhya, always. Instantly on hearing these words, Guha was immensely gratified. His eyes brimming (with tears of joy and love), he fell at the Lord's feet. Then enshrining the lotus feet of the Lord in his heart, he returned home and raved about the lovable nature of the Lord to his kinsmen.
Seeing these virtuous actions of Lord Råma, the citizens repeatedly proclaimed, that blessed is Lord Ramchandra, the storehouse of joy. The enthronement of Lord Rama brought joy to the three lokas (worlds) and put an end to all their sorrows. No one was hostile to another. By the vigour of Lord Rama's glory, discord (inner discrimination) was wiped out.
