Meaning
========

LORD rAma destroyed all the remaining rAkshasas, and then killed the ten-headed rAvaNa also. Lord brahma and other dEvatas, who became very pleased with this, showered paramAtma with flowers.

LORD then made the seetakRuti enter the agni, and through the agni, received HIS very own mahalakshmi, as seeta dEvi. HE then made vibhIshaNa, his devotee, as the King of the rAkshasas.

The LORD then climbed the puShpaka vimAna, along with all of HIS own people, and reached HIS city ayOdhya. HE was then crowned as the emperor of the land by HIS own people (led by rushi vashishTa and others).

LORD rAma then gave the best of gifts and maryaada to all HIS people and lived happily.

May such a LORD always grant all my desires!

Notes:

– The sEva done by everyone else in the war was miniscule compared to the number of rAkshasas killed by LORD rAma. rAvaNa at the last stage invokes his moola baLa and there are crores and crores of rAvaNas who appear. LORD rAma, due to HIS achintya adbhuta shakti, appears in as many rUpas in the battlefield and kills all of them.
– When the seetakRuti enters agni, the original seeta dEvi returns from kailasa and unites (merely for the eyes of others) with rAma.
– The puShpaka viMana had a speciality that it could accommodate any number of people. There was no limit to how many could find a place in it!
– LORD rAma then became king of ayOdhya and ruled the entire world for 11,000 years!!!
