रामं दशरथं विद्धि

रामं दशरथं विद्धि मां विद्धि जनकात्मजाम्।
अयोध्यामटवीं विद्धि गच्छ तात यथासुखम्॥४०-९॥
—श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अयोध्याकाण्डम्
rāmaṁ daśarathaṁ viddhi māṁ viddhi janakātmajām|
ayodhyāmaṭavīṁ viddhi gaccha tāta yathāsukham||40-9||
—śrīmadvālmīkirāmāyaṇe ayodhyākāṇḍam
Regard Rāma as Daśaratha (your father), Sīta as me (your mother).
The forest, as Ayodhyā, and go cheerfully, O son!
Sumitra, thus cheerfully urges Lakṣmaṇa to accompany Rama to the forest and do his bidding!

    The words “Dasharatha, Maa and Ayodhya” can also be interpreted as “MahaVishnu, ShriLakshmi and Vaikuntham”. This shloka, hence, also means
    Regard Rāma as MahaVishnu, Sīta as ShriLakshmi.
    The forest, as Vaikuntham, and go cheerfully, O son!

    The shloka shows Sumitra knew who ShriRama was!
