In 16 June, 2008 episode, it was shown that Ram gives the knowledge of Navadha bhakti (nine forms of devotion) to Shabri. It is possible that the words used in the serial are somewhat different from what is written in Ramcharitmanas. Below, I am giving Navadha bhakti as written in Tulsidas's Ramchartimanas. Each line from Ramcharitmanas is in red and its translation follows in blue.

pratham bhagati santanh kar sanga
First form of devotion is the company of saints.
doosri rati mam katha prasanga
Second is marked by fondness for My stories.
guru pad pankat seva teesri bhagati amaan
Devotion to guru's lotus feet is third form of devotion.
Chauthi bhagati mam gun gaan karai kapat taji gaan
Fourth form of devotion is singing My praises with a guileless hear.
mantra jaap mam dridh biswasa pancham bhajan so bed prakasa
Chanting my name with strong faith is the fifth, as revealed in Vedas.
chhath dam seel birati bahu karma nirat nirantar sajjan dharma
Sixth is self-control and virtue, desisting from manifold activities and ever following path of saints.
saatawan sam mohi maya jag dekha moten sant adhik kari lekha
Seventh is seeing the world full of Me and treating saints higher than Me.
aadhawan jathalabh santosha sapnehun nahin dekhai pardosha
Eigth is contentment with whatever one gets and not seeing others' faults even in dream.
navam saral sab san chhalheena mam bharos hiyan harash na deena
Ninth is to be guileless and straight in dealings and having firm faith in heart for Me without exultation or depression.
