Jatayu Krt Rama Stuti at Stutimandal

Sample: Be victorious, Rāma, Whose form is without a simile, Who is without sensory qualities, Who pervades qualities, Who inspires sensory perception, Who is [always] right, Who destroys the mighty arms of Rāvaṇa (ten-headed one), Who possesses formidable arrows, and Who adorns the earth! I regularly bow to Rāma, Who has a cloud-complexioned body, Who has lotus-like face, Who has eyes as if they are lotus-repository, Who is merciful, Who has strong hands, and Who destroys the fear of metempsychosis.[1]
