Sugriv is repentant and in tears. Bali consoles him and tells him that his first and formost duty is to help Shri Ram find his consort. Tara, Bali's wife and Angad arrive. Tara falls on the ground and clasping Bali, sets up a wall of woe. Bali appeals to Shri Ram to protect Angad. Shri Ram consoles Tara and tells Sugriv and Hanuman to perform the last rites of Bali in a befitting manner. After the cremation, Shri Ram tells Lakshman to crown Sugrive. He then turns to Sugrive and says: "Go and take up the reins of the kingdom and crown Angad as the Yuvaraj."
