Can you tell me where this occurs? I found the same info in a book
called Om, Gayathri and Sandhya published by the RK Mutt. But, I could
not find this verse in my copy of the Ramayana. Perhaps I over looked
it. Two other references given in this book were spurious. So I was
suspicious about this bit also. Thanks.
