Abstract: We use the uniqueness of various invariant functionals on irreducible unitary representations of $ PGL_2(\mathbb{R})$ in order to deduce the classical Rankin-Selberg identity for the sum of Fourier coefficients of Maass cusp forms and its new anisotropic analog. We deduce from these formulas non-trivial bounds for the corresponding unipotent and spherical Fourier coefficients of Maass forms. As an application we obtain a subconvexity bound for certain $ L$-functions. Our main tool is the notion of a Gelfand pair from representation theory.
