Sri Rama Gita from Tulasi Ramayana

Sri Rama Gita is a beautiful portion from Aranyakanda of Sri Ramacharitamanas of Sant Tulasidasji. This is a dialogue between Sri Rama and Lakshmana. Lakshmana ask the following five questions to Sri Rama:
What is Jnana?
What is Vairagya?
What is Maya?
What is Bhakti?
What is the difference between Jiva and Ishwara?
Bhagavan Sri Rama replies answering all these questions briefly.
