रथस्थः स हि धर्मात्मा भरतो भ्रातृवत्सलः । नन्दिग्रामं ययौ तूर्णं शिरस्याधाय पादुके ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अयोध्याकाण्डे पञ्चदशोत्तरशततमस्सर्गः (१२ श्लोक)

“Bharata travelled to Nandigrama while carrying ShriRaama’s Paadukas on his head.”

This shloka illustrates the love and bhakti Bharata had towards His brother (who was also His Guru). More importantly, like Bharata, we should always keep God on our head (in our mind) and follow His instructions (dharma).
