Like a star jasmine flower(Kunda pushpa) and the blue water lily( neel kamal)- coloured fair and dusky, extraordinarily strong, epitome of learning, radiant, gifted archers, praised by the Vedas, loved by people and animals, in the Maya form of a human being, wearing the armour for maintaining divine Dharma, well wisher to all, focused in the search for Sitaji, in the form of travellers (we find) both these fine princes of Raghu clan- SriRam and Lakshman!May we be bestowed with devotion to them.

That soul is blessed, who is constantly drinking the amrit( nectar) of Sriram’s name: He who destroys the dirt in the minds of those living in Kaliyug( the yug or aeon in turn having been created by the churning the ocean of Vedas), indestructible,lighted up by the beautiful and radiant moonlight of Lord Shiva’s grace, the medicine to the never ending death- birth cycle,giver of joy to all, and the very life of Janaki( so beloved to Sitaji).

Where Shiv and Parvati reside- that Kashi- knowing that it is the birthplace of liberation ( mukti from worldly tangles), treasury of wisdom, and destroyer of all sins- why not be devoted to it?
