This shloka was given by Ramanuja Acharya as a mantra for Sundarakanda. I am not sure about the Hindi letters but in Telugu, letters are allotted certain number. So when you take the first sentence राघवो विजयं दद्यात् मम सीतापतिः प्रभुः । or in Telugu when each letter is given the value

రా ఘ వో వి జ యo ద ధ్వాన్ మ మ సీ తా ప తి: ప్ర భు: = no of letters = 16 (16 days) 2 4 4 4 8 1 8 1 5 5 7 6 1 6 2 4 = 68(68 Sargas in Sundara Kanda)

So best way of doing Sundarakanda Parayana is for 16 days and each day you should read the no of Sargas as the numbers allocated for the mantra. example: first day 2 Sargas, second day 4, third day 4......so on..

This information was provided by Nanduri Srinivas in one of his Youtube videos about Sundarakand
