1. 21

    यस्यामलं नृपसदःसु यशोऽधुनापि गायन्त्यघघ्नमृषयो दिगिभेन्द्रपट्टम् । तं नाकपालवसुपालकिरीटजुष्टपादाम्बुजं रघुपतिं शरणं प्रपद्ये ।। ९-११-२१ ।।

    Lord Rāmacandra’s spotless name and fame, which vanquish all sinful reactions, are celebrated in all directions, like the ornamental cloth of the victorious elephant that conquers all directions. Great saintly persons like Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi still glorify His characteristics in the assemblies of great emperors like Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira. Similarly, all the saintly kings and all the demigods, including Lord Śiva and Lord Brahmā, worship the Lord by bowing down with their helmets. Let me offer my obeisances unto His lotus feet. ।। 9-11-21 ।।

  2. 22

    स यैः स्पृष्टोऽभिदृष्टो वा संविष्टोऽनुगतोऽपि वा । कोसलास्ते ययुः स्थानं यत्र गच्छन्ति योगिनः ।। ९-११-२२ ।।

    Lord Rāmacandra returned to His abode, to which bhakti-yogīs are promoted. This is the place to which all the inhabitants of Ayodhyā went after they served the Lord in His manifest pastimes by offering Him obeisances, touching His lotus feet, fully observing Him as a fatherlike King, sitting or lying down with Him like equals, or even just accompanying Him. ।। 9-11-22 ।।

  3. 23

    पुरुषो रामचरितं श्रवणैरुपधारयन् । आनृशंस्यपरो राजन् कर्मबन्धैर्विमुच्यते ।। ९-११-२३ ।।

    O King Parīkṣit, anyone who aurally receives the narrations concerning the characteristics of Lord Rāmacandra’s pastimes will ultimately be freed from the disease of envy and thus be liberated from the bondage of fruitive activities. ।। 9-11-23 ।।

  4. 24

    राजोवाच कथं स भगवान् रामो भ्रातॄन् वा स्वयमात्मनः । तस्मिन् वा तेऽन्ववर्तन्त प्रजाः पौराश्च ईश्वरे ।। ९-११-२४ ।।

    Mahārāja Parīkṣit inquired from Śukadeva Gosvāmī: How did the Lord conduct Himself, and how did He behave in relationship with His brothers, who were expansions of His own self? And how did His brothers and the inhabitants of Ayodhyā treat Him? ।। 9-11-24 ।।

  5. 25

    श्रीशुक उवाच अथादिशद्दिग्विजये भ्रातॄंस्त्रिभुवनेश्वरः । आत्मानं दर्शयन् स्वानां पुरीमैक्षत सानुगः ।। ९-११-२५ ।।

    Śukadeva Gosvāmī replied: After accepting the throne of the government by the fervent request of His younger brother Bharata, Lord Rāmacandra ordered His younger brothers to go out and conquer the entire world, while He personally remained in the capital to give audience to all the citizens and residents of the palace and supervise the governmental affairs with His other assistants. ।। 9-11-25 ।।
