सूत उवाच |
Suta Goswami said (to the sages)
दीर्घबाहुः सुतस्तस्य रघुस्तस्याभवत्सुतः |
अजस्तस्य तु पुत्रोऽभूत्तस्माद्दशरथोऽभवत् || 16 ||
रामो दशरथाज्जज्ञे धर्मात्मा यो महायशाः |
स विष्ण्वंशो महाशैवः पौलस्त्यो येन घातितः || 17 ||
तच्चरित्रं च बहुधा पुराणेषु प्रवर्णितम् |
रामायणे प्रसिद्धं हि नातः प्रोक्तं तु विस्तरात् || 18 ||
Dirghabahu was his son, Raghu became his (Dirghabahu’s) son, Aja indeed became his (Raghu’s) son; from him became Dasharatha.
Rama, the great soul of Dharma who had great fame, was born of Dasharatha. He was a little part of Lord Vishnu, a great follower of Lord Shiva, by whom Ravana (Paulastya) was killed.
And his life events have been described in many ways in the Puranas. (It is) really well known in Ramayana. Therefore, it is not spoken (here) in detail.
