1,2 & 3 Shlokas of Uttar Kand

Shloka 1

naumiyam jånakisam raghuvaramanisam puspakårudharåmam ||1||


Lord Ram on the Puspak Viman

I respectfully salute Lord Råma without cease. The husband of Shri Janaki and chief of the Raghu Dynasty is mounted on the Puspak, an aerial car. He has a greenish blue hue very much like the gleam of a peacock's neck. The fact that He is adorned with the impression of the Brahman's (Bhrigu) lotus foot endorses that He is supreme amongst the gods. Richly radiant, He is clad in yellow robes, is lotus-eyed and always blissful. Holding a bow and arrow in His hands, Ram is accompanied by a herd of monkeys and served by Lakshman, His brother. (1)


Shloka 2

Brahma & Shiva Honour the Lotus Feet of Lord Ram

The charming and delicate lotus-feet of Lord Råma, the master of Kosalapuri, are adored by both Brahma and Shiva. Caressed by the lotus hands of Janak's daughter, they are constantly allied to the bee-like mind of the worshipper. In other words, the capricious black bee of those devotees' mind forever dwells in those lotus feet. (2)


Shloka 3

kårunikakalakanjalocanam naumi sankaramanangamocanam ||3||


Lord Shankar & Goddess Parvati

I bow before the propitious Lord Shankar, white-hued as the jasmine flower, the moon and the conch.The spouse of Mother Goddess Parvati, a bestower of the fruit we desire, always merciful towards those who are suffering, with eyes resembling a lovely lotus, delivers us from Kamdev (god of love) or the grip of lust.
