The devotion of Goswami Shri Tulsidasji in the couple Feet of GOD Shree Ramji and Bhagwati Sita Mata is seen in this verse. When GOD Shree Ramji first saw Bhagwati Sita Mata in the garden, Goswami Shri Tulsidasji was hesitant to describe Her beauty. He says that all the similes of poems are already used by other poets and they have given all the similes to someone. Seeing the supernatural beauty of Mata, the new simile does not come to his mind and due to the old prevailing similes already given to someone, he does not want to give them.

When GOD Shree Ramji returned from the garden with Shri Lakshmanji and came to sage Shri Vishwamitraji, He narrated everything to the sage of what happened.

Before leaving, they said that they should see the unique and very pleasing image of GOD because such an opportunity will not come again and again in life.
