  • sulabhāḥ puruṣā rājan satataṃ priya vādinaḥ |
    apriyasya ca pathyasya vaktā śrotā ca durlabhaḥ ||
    Oh King, it is easy to get a person that always says words that please you. However, it is very difficult to find someone who can say something that may be unpleasant to hear but is brings welfare to you. [Context: Demon Mareecha says this to Ravana, when Ravana approaches Mareecha to help him to take Sita away and he is angry that Mareecha refused to help him initially.]

  • rāmo vigrahavān dharmaḥ sādhuḥ satya parākramaḥ |
    rājā sarvasya lokasya devānām iva vāsavaḥ ||
    Rama is an embodiment of righteousness. Truth is his braveness. He is the lord of all worlds and everybody. [Context: Demon Mareecha says this to Ravana, when Ravana approaches Mareecha to help him to take Sita away. Mareecha says that Rama is nothing but righteousness and truth and warns him not to go to Rama and that Ravana is not enough to face him.]

  • nāhaṃ jānāmi keyūre nāhaṃ jānāmi kuṇḍale |
    nūpure tu abhijanāmi nityaṃ pāda abhivandanāt ||
    I cannot recognize these armlets and I cannot recognize these earrings. However I do recognize these anklets, as I see them everyday when I offer my respect at sister-in-law (Sita)'s feet. [Context: Lakshmana says this to Rama, when he asks if he can recognize the jewelry that is found by Hanuman, when Sita was taken away by Ravana. Lakshmana can only recognize the anklets because he does not pay attention to anything other than his sister-in-law's feet.]

    sundare sundarī sīta sundare sundaraṃ vanam |
    sundare sundaraṃ kāvyaṃ sundare sundaraṃ kapiḥ
    sundare sundaraṃ mantraṃ sundare kiṃ na sundaram ||
    Rama is handsome and so is Sita, The ashoka forest in which Sita was there is beautiful. The Ramayana kavyam which describes these events is beautiful. Hanuman who attained self-realization is beautiful. The sacred hymns are beautiful. In this beautiful Sundara Kanda, which is the fifth chapter of Ramayana kavyam, what is not beautiful?
