Bal Kand – Shloka
varnanamarthasanghanam rasanam chhandsamapi | mangalanam cha karttarau vande vanivinayakau ||
वर्णानामर्थसंघानां रसानां छन्दसामपि । मड़्लानां च कर्त्तारौ वन्दे वाणीविनायकौ ॥
I reverence Vani ( the goddess of speech) and Vinayaka (Lord Ganesha), the originators of sounds represented by the alphabet, of the multitudes of objects denoted by those sounds, of poetic sentiments as well as of metres, and the begetters of all auspiciainess.
bhavanishankarau vande shradhdhavishvasarupinau | yabhyam vina na pashyanti sidhdha svantahasthamishvaram ||
भवानीशड़्करौ वन्दे श्रध्दाविश्वासरुपिणौ । याभ्यां विना न पश्यन्ति सिध्दाः स्वान्तःस्थमीश्वरम् ॥
I greet Goddess Parvati and Her consort, Bhagavan Shankara, embodiments of reverence and faith respectively, without which even the adept cannot perceive God enshrined in their very heart.
Ayodhya Kand – Doha 325
Param punit bharat ācharanu | madhura manju muda mangal karanu ||
परम पुनीत भरत आचरनू । मधुर मंजु मुद मंगल करनू ॥
The most sanctifying story of Bharata’s doing is delightful and charming and a fountain of joy and blessings.
