Sri Ram took birth as the friend of the poor and banefactor of his mother Kaushalya. Seeing his indescribable beauty, charming even to the minds of sages, filled Kaushalya with joy.
His body was cloud-like blue and the delight of all eyes. He held a conch, discus, club, and lotus in his four hands. The enemy of demons, adorned with jewels and a garland of white flowers, he was an ocean of beauty.
Kaushalya, folding her hands in prayer, said, "O Eternal God, how can I sing your praise? The Vedas and Puranas say that you are beyond knowledge, illusion, and attributes [sat, raj, tam]."
"He who the Vedas and saints exroll as an ocean of compassion and bliss and the repository of virtues, the same Lord of Lakshmi, the lover of his devotees, has revealed himself for my good."
