The deities showered flowers, the celestial Apsaras danced to the melodious music of Gandharvas, the sounds of the divine music instruments reverberated in the sky, the Lord of Ayodhya, Lord Sri Ramachandra set forth to the Kingdom of Ayodhya. King Dhasharatha approached the Brahmins, King Janaka, and Kushadhwaja and humbly requested them to retire to their city, the affection shared by the two Kings were beyond description, King Janaka was not willing to leave the latter, King Dhasharatha spoke affectionately “Oh! Rajan, kindly returns to your kingdom, you have already followed a long way, kindly return with your councilors and twice-born to your palace.” King Dasaratha stood before King Janaka with folded hands, tears running down the cheeks, the King of Vidheha with folded hands spoke the nectar-like words “Oh! Rajan, I have no words to describe your modesty, you have showered great honor to us.” While the bride and groom were proceeding to Ayodhya, Dhasharatha offered an abundance of gifts and generous contributions to the mendicants on his way, everyone was praising the glories of King of Ayodhya and Lord Rama and returned to their city.
