I have tried ls -lR / | grep '^d' | grep 'bin$' to display all directories from root.

Now I need to display all the commands(data inside bin), which is exactly having 2 words.

Please help.

Not clear what exactly you are trying to achieve. What is a "command", in this context?
And this is off-topic, in fact: this is a forum for software developer, but the question is from the standpoint of a regular user.

I framed my question wrongly. 2 letter commands like rm, ls, cp..

It's a while since I have used ksh but something like:
find . -name -exec grep '[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z]'
