Lord Rama is Likened to Kamdhenu, the Cow of Plenty
O Lord of the Raghus! Grant us the religious devotion which destroys the threefold agony and the suffering of life and death. O Lord You are the Kamdhenu and Kalpavriksha in fulfilling the wishes of those who seek refuge in You! Be pleased and grant us this very boon. O Raghunath ji! You are just like sage Agastya in sucking up the ocean of this mundane world. O Chief of the Raghus, You are easily attainable to those who serve You and bestow all sort of joys on them. O Friend of the needy poor! Put an end to terrible sufferings arising from the mind and spread an impartial view in us. O Remover of hope (of sensual enjoyment), fear, jealousy etc., and propagator of humility, discernment and asceticism. O Shri Ram ji, shiromani (crest-jewel) of kings, and ornament of the earth!
Lord Rama is the Boat Plus Boatman who Help us Cross the Ocean of this Mundane World
Grant us the boat of religious devotion to Your feet, which takes us across the river of this mundane world.O Swan constantly dwelling in the lake of the sages' mind! Your lotus feet are adored even by Brahma and Lord Shankara. Glory of the Raghus, protector of the Vedic laws and devourer of time, karma, prakriti and the three gunas, You are taran-taran or the granter of deliverance (both the boatman and the boat to take Your devotees across the ocean of birth and death) and the remover of all vices. The Lord of Tulsidåsa, You are the jewel of the three spheres.

Bharata, Lakshmana & Shatrughana Beg Hanuman to Talk to Lord Rama
When Sanaka and his brothers left for Brahma's abode, the three brothers (Bharata, Lakshmana and Shatrughna) bowed their head at Lord Råma's feet. Being too hesitant to ask the Lord, they all looked at Hanumana.They wished to hear the words from the Lord's own mouth, which would get rid of all their misunderstandings. The All-Knowing Lord came to know everything and asked: Tell me, Hanuman! What is the matter? With folded hands, Hanuman replied,' Listen, O Lord! Forever compassionate to the meek. Bharata wishes to ask something; but he is too shy to ask the question.
There is No Difference Between Bharata & Lord Rama
(The Lord said) Hanuman! You very well know my disposition. Has there ever been any difference (secret) between Bharata and myself? On hearing the Lord's words, Bharata caught His feet (and said) O Nath ! Listen O Reliever of the agony of those who seek refuge in You.

Lord Rama is the Abode of Mercy
I have no doubts whatsoever, my Lord, nor do I have any dejection or infatuation even in my dreams. This is solely due to the fruition of Your grace, O Heap of mercy and bliss!
