Each Universe Had Its Own Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva
There were different Brahmas, Vishnus and Shivas in each universe, Manus(fourteen Manus preside in succession over the universe in each kalpa), Dikpals (guardian deities of a quarter of the world), human beings, Gandharvas (celestial musicians), spectres and goblins, Kinnaras (a class of heavenly musicians having a human figure with the head of a horse), Råksasas (giants), quadrupeds, birds and serpents. As well as gods and demons of various classes. All the creatures there were of a different kind. Several earths had their many rivers, oceans, lakes and mountains, and the entire creation in each universe had a distinctive character. In all these universes I saw myself in every universe and also saw many excellent set ups.
King Dashratha & Queen Kausalya Resided in Every Universe
Each universe had its own Ayodhya with its distinctive Sarayu, particular men and women. Listen, dear Garuda: Lord Råma's parents Dasharatha and Kausalyå as well His brothers, Bharata and others, were different in each universe. In each such universe I saw the incarnation of Lord Råma as well as His infinite childish sports.

Kakbhusundi Saw the Same Childlike Lord Raghuvir in Every Brahmaand
O mount of Lord Hari! Everything I saw had a distinctive stamp of its own universe and was so very wonderful. But I saw no other Lord Ramchandra when I roamed around the innumerable universes. Urged by the blast of infatuation I saw, in each world that I visited in succession, the same child-like ways, the same beauty and the same merciful Lord Raghuvir.

Kakbhusundi Hears of Lord Rama's Birth in Ayodhya
It seemed as if a hundred cycles had passed in my wanderings through the many universes. Roaming around, I came to my hermitage at last and stayed there for sometime. Thereafter, as I came to hear of my Lord's birth in Ayodhya, I got up delightedly and steeped in love, ran to witness the grand festival of His birth as I have already told you earlier. Thus in the belly of Lord Råma I saw a number of universes, which can only be seen with one's eyes and are beyond description.
Lord Rama is The Discerning Svami of Maya or Delusion
Once again, there I beheld the divine Lord Råma, the gracious and discerning Svami or Master of Måyå. I contemplated over and over again. But my understanding was pervaded by the mire of delusion. All this I saw In less than an hour. My mind was utterly bewildered because of a particular delusion (of the supposed reality of the world.)

Kakbhusundi Flies Out of Lord Rama's Mouth
At that point of time, the Lord of the Raghus laughed on seeing my distress. Listen, O resolute, Garuda! The moment He laughed, I came out of His mouth. Again, Lord Rama began to play the same childish pranks with me. I tried to explain things to myself in crores of ways; but my mind could not rest in peace.
