AGNIPRAVEŚA(M) : Entering fire. In the Yuddha- Kāṇḍā of the Rāmāyaṇa, Vālmīki has described Sītā's entering and standing in fire (Agnipraveśam) as a test of her purity. Though Rāma recovered Sītā from Rāvaṇa, he wanted to accept her as his wife only after her purity had been tested and proved. So he decided to test her by fire (Agniparīkṣaṇa). Sītā shed tears at the thought that her husband doubted her chastity. Lakṣmaṇa, at Rāma's bidding, made a pyre. Sītā jumped into it after praying to the gods. She remained unscorched by the fire and Rāma gladly received her once more as his wife.
