I always meditate upon Sri Ramachandra, who has the most attractive form in the world.
The one who has long eyes like lotus petal and brimming with compassion.
The one who has Sita on the left; who is praised by Lakshmana; who dispelled the miseries of life and death; whose serpent like powerful arms destroyed the demon clan; whose gait excels the majesty of the elephant; who obeyed the command of his father; who is the king of Ayodhya; who manifested as human being; who is spotless and the gem of the Manu dynasty.
The one, who dispelled the sins of Samsara of those who praised him; whose face is adorned with innumerable precious gems; you have the glory of being fanned by Bharata; whose feet are caressed by Hanuman; who is having sweet speech; who rejoices the people of Kosala; who is showered with flowers by Indra and others and who is effulgent as crores of suns.
The one, who is glorified by sages like Vasishta; who si surrounded by the army of monkeys like Kumuda, Sarabha and others; who is praised by Vibhishana the distinguished among the demons; who never deviate from the path of righteousness; the most courageous one; always active who annihilated Ravana the enemy of the virtuous ones; he is the personification of valor; who is dreadful in the battle field; Oh immaculate Sri Sarasijanabha!
