Ramayana

Some more questions on the epic:
1. There is an incidence in uttara Ramayana ( one
can dismiss it as not part of Ramayana ) where
a Sudra (or Chandala ) wants to ascend the heaven
with his physical body, just as it was possible for 
a brahmin. It is forbidden by Manu Dharma and he is
beheaded by Rama.
2. Some of the explanations on Sita resort to
present Karma pala. This effectively reasons that
all our status in this world is ruled by present
or past karma. Salvation is possible by bhakti.
Do'nt we see the world different from such a
a simple reasoning?
