Proclaiming the auspicious tidings, the drums are beaten
loudly at AYODHYA.
Lord RAMA is seated on the gem studded throne in the company of Goddess
SITA. BHARATA and LAKSHMANA are standing closely and fanning the couple
with fly whisk.
People of every village are singing auspicious songs. The celestials
are playing the instruments. Lord RAMA vanquished not only RAVANA but
also all the demons and gave back the Kingdom of LANKA to VIBHISHANA.
Mother KAUSALAYA took ARATI of the Lord (to caste off evil eyes) Only
on this day that mothers wish has been fulfilled. Lord PADMANABHA, who
reclines on the serpent, bestows happiness to the three worlds.
