Ramcharit Charcha XIV

II Shree Guruvey Namah II

Jai Sri Ram,

एहि महँ रघुपति नाम उदारा। अति पावन पुरान श्रुति सारा।।
मंगल भवन अमंगल हारी। उमा सहित जेहि जपत पुरारी।।
भनिति बिचित्र सुकबि कृत जोऊ। राम नाम बिनु सोह न सोऊ।।
बिधुबदनी सब भाँति सँवारी। सोन न बसन बिना बर नारी।।
सब गुन रहित कुकबि कृत बानी। राम नाम जस अंकित जानी।।
सादर कहहिं सुनहिं बुध ताही। मधुकर सरिस संत गुनग्राही।।
जदपि कबित रस एकउ नाही। राम प्रताप प्रकट एहि माहीं।।
सोइ भरोस मोरें मन आवा। केहिं न सुसंग बडप्पनु पावा।।
धूमउ तजइ सहज करुआई। अगरु प्रसंग सुगंध बसाई।।
भनिति भदेस बस्तु भलि बरनी। राम कथा जग मंगल करनी।।
छं0-मंगल करनि कलि मल हरनि तुलसी कथा रघुनाथ की।।
गति कूर कबिता सरित की ज्यों सरित पावन पाथ की।।
प्रभु सुजस संगति भनिति भलि होइहि सुजन मन भावनी।।
भव अंग भूति मसान की सुमिरत सुहावनि पावनी।।
दो0-प्रिय लागिहि अति सबहि मम भनिति राम जस संग।
दारु बिचारु कि करइ कोउ बंदिअ मलय प्रसंग।।10(क)।।
स्याम सुरभि पय बिसद अति गुनद करहिं सब पान।
गिरा ग्राम्य सिय राम जस गावहिं सुनहिं सुजान।।10(ख)।।

(yet to explain this above verse which had been left out and has now been noticed)

Remembering Guru and Bhagwan Sri Ram, we would pay attention to Tulsi ‘s further education for our benefit regarding what Ram Katha can deliver to us. He says that like Mani (shining stone type hard stuff on the head of serpents), precious stone foun in mountains and pearl like thing that is found in the head of some elephant which are valueable and very beutiful objects are not so appreiable at the places these are found but aquire a an special aura when they are fixed on the crown of a monarch or find a place on the body of a beautiful young woman, the poetry of great poets of the world do not get so much attention when written but has people enthralled when is taken notice of. Godess saraswati who is the godess of knowledge and learning does mind leaving house of her husband Brahma (the creater) to be helping the poet who makes Ram Charit the subject of his poetry. Godess Saraswati has to be betowing all her blessing for success of any poet. When such is the case many great poets of outstanding have sung the praises of Lord Ram and of his Bhaktas. Godess Saraswati therefore also finds her fatigue removed only when she find herself aiding the poet is such efforts and then rejoices in listening to that. When a poet undertakes to write poetry in praise of some individuals or on subjects of cheap taste, the Godess saraswati is upset. Godess Saraswati impart the necessary capacity to those who have intention to write about what Ram did and stood for and therefore they are able to turn out valueable stanzas one after the other as valueable as pearls and which when read in their right order, are no less than a necklace of such precious pearls that all the gentlemen of benign nature and pure heart put on with intense pleasure and love.

You may seen that how gradually Tulsi is giving an idea as to what will be the result of earnestness in study of Ramcharit Manas. It may not be questioned as there are many who have got immense benefit and have completed their journey in search of God only on strenght of this epic itself. Please find below the original lines of Goswamiji below, which I suggest must be sung with aplomb by all those who can read it:

मनि मानिक मुकुता छबि जैसी। अहि गिरि गज सिर सोह न तैसी।।
नृप किरीट तरुनी तनु पाई। लहहिं सकल सोभा अधिकाई।।
तैसेहिं सुकबि कबित बुध कहहीं। उपजहिं अनत अनत छबि लहहीं।।
भगति हेतु बिधि भवन बिहाई। सुमिरत सारद आवति धाई।।
राम चरित सर बिनु अन्हवाएँ। सो श्रम जाइ न कोटि उपाएँ।।
कबि कोबिद अस हृदयँ बिचारी। गावहिं हरि जस कलि मल हारी।।
कीन्हें प्राकृत जन गुन गाना। सिर धुनि गिरा लगत पछिताना।।
हृदय सिंधु मति सीप समाना। स्वाति सारदा कहहिं सुजाना।।
जौं बरषइ बर बारि बिचारू। होहिं कबित मुकुतामनि चारू।।
दो0-जुगुति बेधि पुनि पोहिअहिं रामचरित बर ताग।
पहिरहिं सज्जन बिमल उर सोभा अति अनुराग।।11।।

HariOm,

Krishna Khandelwal
