[A woman says to another] This morning I went to the door of the King of Avadha, Daśaratha, and he came out with Rāma in his lap. After seeing Rāma, Who is the destroyer of worldly passions, I almost lost my mind, and those who don’t should be shameful.
Rāma, Who entices the mind of Tulasīdāsa, had a beautiful mark of añjana (kājala or eyeliner) in His eyes and they appeared like the eyes of the baby Sukhañjana-bird. O Friend! His blue eyeballs in white eye looked like a pair of blooming lotuses in moonlight.
Rāma had anklets in feet, bracelets in His hands, and a beautiful jewel-studded necklace at chest. His charming blue body was wrapped in a beautiful silken yellow robe, and the king was very excited and enticed due to His charm.
The face of Rāma was like a lotus and the nectar of that lotus was drunk by my bumble-bee like eyes. If someone refuses to keep such a beautiful baby in mind, then O Tulasīdāsa! what is the use of such a life at all.
The body of Rāma was like a shining blue lotus and His eyes stole away the beauty of a red lotus. The soiled body of Ram (after playing) was very beautiful and defeated the beauty of immensely decorated cupid by a great order.
His teeth shone like lightening-bolts, and He played and chirped like any young baby plays. The four sons of Daśaratha, viz., Rāma, Lakṣmaṇa, Bharata and Śatrughna, always roam inside the temple like heart of Tulasīdāsa.
