Lord Rama is Most Fond of a Devotee who Worships Him in Thought, Word & Deed
A father has a number of sons differing from each other in quality, nature and conduct. One is learned, another an ascetic, yet another is spiritually enlightened, a fourth rich, another valiant and a sixth generous. One of them is all-knowing and another devoutly religious.The father loves all of them equally. But if one of them is dedicatedly devoted to his father in thought, word and deed and never even dreams of any other obligation. That son the father loves like his own life, even though he be absolutely foolish.

I did not feel sated on hearing the nectarine words of the Lord. The hair on my body stood erect with ecstasy and I was extremely delighted at heart. The joy I experienced can be felt only by the mind and the ears. The tongue can not give an account of it. Just my eyes had the blissful experience of beholding the Lord's majestic beauty; but how could they describe it because they are devoid of speech. Well explaining to me in quite a number of ways and delighting me,

Cuddling Him in her lap, she began to suckle Him, and sing of His charming lilas or divine plays.

Virtuous Men Who Have Tasted the Bliss of Lord Rama
O Pakshiraja! Those virtuous men who have tasted a fragment of that bliss even once in their dreams, think nothing much of the joy of absorption into Brahma.
