Jai Shri Ram,

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II
II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

अग्य अकोबिद अंध अभागी। काई बिषय मुकर मन लागी।।
लंपट कपटी कुटिल बिसेषी। सपनेहुँ संतसभा नहिं देखी।।
कहहिं ते बेद असंमत बानी। जिन्ह कें सूझ लाभु नहिं हानी।।
मुकर मलिन अरु नयन बिहीना। राम रूप देखहिं किमि दीना।।
जिन्ह कें अगुन न सगुन बिबेका। जल्पहिं कल्पित बचन अनेका।।
हरिमाया बस जगत भ्रमाहीं। तिन्हहि कहत कछु अघटित नाहीं।।
बातुल भूत बिबस मतवारे। ते नहिं बोलहिं बचन बिचारे।।
जिन्ह कृत महामोह मद पाना। तिन् कर कहा करिअ नहिं काना।।
सो0-अस निज हृदयँ बिचारि तजु संसय भजु राम पद।
सुनु गिरिराज कुमारि भ्रम तम रबि कर बचन मम।।115।।

We covered up to Doha 115 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that Lord Shiv spoke about the futility of the thought about Ram being other than the supreme God, such line of thinking is only of those who have their hearts given to sensuality and lust, also said that this is not in conformity of Vedic concepts too.

Lord Shiv remains on the same topic and tell Uma that, ” there is nothing to suggest that Agun (the formless and attributeless supreme God) and Sagun (one with a form and qualifications like Ram is) are different in any way. This view is endorsed by Vedas, the learned and realized people as well as by the Puranas (which have narrated the Leelas of Sagun Brahma as avatars).

“That which is attributeless, is formless,is beyond perception and is unborn, gets to become qualified and assumes form when so prompted by the force of love of Bhaktas. It may be understood by the analogy of water getting frozen and becoming a hard piece of snow while there is no basic difference in character of the both as the substantially both are still the same.

“Whose name it self can ward off the darkness borne out of ignorance and delusion just as the sun removes the pall of darkness, there remains no cause for being skeptical or confused because of this misunderstanding, this wrong notion. Ram Himself is like sun, is combination of whole truth,consciousness and bliss and where He is present night of ignorance can’t stay in the least.

“He is the continuous source of light (source of ultimate knowledge which never changes due to passage of time) and hence to say that in His presence too there would be a dawn when the true light of knowledge will emerge in that moment, is itself wrong and not true. The conditionality of joy and grief, knowledge and ignorance, and egoism and false pride are characteristics of Jiva (the finite being) while we are talking of Ram who Himself is none other than all-pervading Brahman whom we should know as supreme bliss, the supreme master, on whose strength all the activities of world are rested up on and who has existed since ever i e the most ancient”.

“He who is universally known as Purush (seeder of world of matter and lives)and is the fount of light (the source of high knowledge) and the lord of here and beyond and has manifested as a jewel in Raghu’s line is only the master of mine,” said Shiv thus and bowed down reverentially.

(Lord Shiv is not leaving any room to keep confusion about Ram and about His being the supreme God, we should therefore be thoroughly convinced ourselves by learning it by heart for Ram Katha to have the desired effect as remover of all the miseries of the world, and take care of the world after.)

We have covered up to Doha 116 of Balkand.

सगुनहि अगुनहि नहिं कछु भेदा। गावहिं मुनि पुरान बुध बेदा।।
अगुन अरुप अलख अज जोई। भगत प्रेम बस सगुन सो होई।।
जो गुन रहित सगुन सोइ कैसें। जलु हिम उपल बिलग नहिं जैसें।।
जासु नाम भ्रम तिमिर पतंगा। तेहि किमि कहिअ बिमोह प्रसंगा।।
राम सच्चिदानंद दिनेसा। नहिं तहँ मोह निसा लवलेसा।।
सहज प्रकासरुप भगवाना। नहिं तहँ पुनि बिग्यान बिहाना।।
हरष बिषाद ग्यान अग्याना। जीव धर्म अहमिति अभिमाना।।
राम ब्रह्म ब्यापक जग जाना। परमानन्द परेस पुराना।।
दो0-पुरुष प्रसिद्ध प्रकास निधि प्रगट परावर नाथ।।
रघुकुलमनि मम स्वामि सोइ कहि सिवँ नायउ माथ।।116।।

Bhagwaan Shiv Maa Parvati Ki Jai!
Prabhu Shri Ram Ki Jai!
Sant Samaj Ko pranaam!
Goswami Tulsidaji Mharaj Ki jai!
