Ayodhya Kaanda - Sarga 95
In this Sarga, Rāma continues to describe the beauty of the Vana to Seetā, specifically of river Mandākini. He expresses his sentiment that his mind does not even think of Ayōdhyā and the kingdom, in the company of Seetā and Lakshmaṇa and the captivating beauty of that lovely place.
