Sing the arati of Shri Ramayan ji, the beautiful and artful song in praise
of Sita's husband Sri Ram.
Brahma and other gods, the sage Narada, and Valmiki, master of spiritual
knowledge, all sing it.
Suka, Sanat, and other sages, the serpent king Sesha, the goddess Saraswati,
Hanuman, the Son of the Wind, all sing its glory.
The Vedas, the eighteen Puranas and the six Shastras sing the praises of
this essence of scriptures.
It is the treasure of all the sages and a saviour to those who read it.
All are in accord with this essence of scriptures.
Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati and the jar-born, wise and learned sage Agastya
ever sing it.
Vyasa and the other great poets narrate all that lies in the hearts of
Kakabhusundi and Garuda.
This arati is the destroyer of sins in the Kaliyug; it is devoid of sensuous
flavor, and is the delightful ornamentation of the damsel Mukti[liberation].
Like the life-giving elexir, it is the medicinal plant which cures wordly
afflictions and is the very father and mother of Tulsidas.
