### how to place a file inside .bashrc

I am following a tutorial on the link https://github.com/birlrobotics/birl_baxter/wiki and I was told as folows:

Finally, after doing catkin_make, place the newly created ~/ros/indigo/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash file inside .bashrc

cd ~
emacs .bashrc
source ~/ros/indigo/rbx_ws/devel/setup.bash


When I run the command emacs .bashrc the emacs editor opens but I am not sure what I am expected to do after that .
