The Mothers Bless Janaki ji,Shri Ram & Lakshman
Janaki ji met all Her mothers-in-law and was overjoyed to touch their feet. Enquiring about Her well-being, they blessed Her, “ May you be happily married, forever." All the mothers gazed at the lotus like face of Lord Raghunath (and become teary-eyed but) knowing that it was an occasion to rejoice they checked the tears that rose in their eyes. They did aarti in gold plates waved above Lord Råma's head (to ward off evil) and looked over and over again at the the Lord's limbs.They scattered all sorts of offerings about Him,and their hearts were full of supreme bliss and jubilation.
Ma Kausalya Adores Shri Raghuvir & Lakshman
Kausalya repeatedly gazed at Shri Raghuvir, who is an ocean of compassion and a brave warrior. Each time round she wondered within her heart that how could he kill the Lord of Lanka? Both these children of mine are so very delicate whereas the demons were great contenders and extremely powerful.

Sugriva & the Other Monkey Heroes
Vibhishana (the king of Lanka), Sugriva ( lord of the monkeys), Nala, Nila, Jåmbavån, Angada, Hanumån and the other monkey heroes, who were virtuous, assumed enchanting human forms. With immense love and respect they raved about Bharata's affection, lovely disposition, vow (of abdication) and discipline. On seeing the citizens' mannerisms( loaded with love, virtuousness and humility) they admired their loving devotion for the Lord's feet. Then the Lord of the Raghus called for all His friends and taught them to be engaged in the feet of the sage.This guru Vaishistha is highly revered by our entire family. It was by his grace that all the demons were killed in battle.(Thereafter He told the guru ) O Muni! Listen! All of them are my friends.They are like rafts (ships) for me in the ocean of battle.They put their lives at stake for my sake. They are dearer to Me than even Bharata. Everyone was steeped in love and delight on hearing the Lord's word. And in this manner attained new joys with every passing moment.
