त्वरामहे वयं द्रष्टुं कृत्स्नमाश्रममण्डलम् । ऋषीणां पुण्यशीलानां दण्डकारण्यवासिनाम् ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अरण्यकाण्डे अष्टमस्सर्गः (६व श्लोकमु)

While taking leave from Suteekshna maharshi, ShriRaama spoke this beautiful verse:

“O great Sage! We are indeed very eager and longing to have darshan of all punya-aashrams of maharshis living in Dandakaranyam. (hence please allow us to take leave)”.

We must inculcate the interest and habit for having darshan of Kshetras, teerthas, and great mahatmas. This is ShriRaama’s message to us from the shloka. This is because ‘Satsang’ is the first and most important step for progress.

This shloka also shows the eagerness God will have to meet His bhaktas.
