राम कीन्ह चाहहिं सोइ होई। करै अन्यथा अस नहिं कोई।।
संभु बचन मुनि मन नहिं भाए। तब बिरंचि के लोक सिधाए।।
एक बार करतल बर बीना। गावत हरि गुन गान प्रबीना।।
छीरसिंधु गवने मुनिनाथा। जहँ बस श्रीनिवास श्रुतिमाथा।।
हरषि मिले उठि रमानिकेता। बैठे आसन रिषिहि समेता।।
बोले बिहसि चराचर राया। बहुते दिनन कीन्हि मुनि दाया।।
काम चरित नारद सब भाषे। जद्यपि प्रथम बरजि सिवँ राखे।।
अति प्रचंड रघुपति कै माया। जेहि न मोह अस को जग जाया।।
दो0-रूख बदन करि बचन मृदु बोले श्रीभगवान ।
तुम्हरे सुमिरन तें मिटहिं मोह मार मद मान।।128।।

We covered up to Doha 128 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas by Tulsidas in the last post which ended with Lord Vishnu addressing Narad with a grave facial expression but in a polite manner which warns Narad about his pride being misplaced, not in such words but sarcastically indicating. Narad wasn’t in a frame of mind to accept any thing said straightly as had been the case when Lord Shiv had said the same thing.

Lord Vishnu further tells Narad, ” Listen O Muni, Moha (delusion) affects heart of such people who have no deep knowledge and neither dispassion. Those who have avowed for remaining celibates and seekers in paths towards God and are of strong unwavering intellect like you are, are never troubled by desires born in mind.”

Narad replied with ego in command, ” O Lord, its all on account of your grace (but his words actually sounded hollow).”

The Karunanidhi (treasure-chest of mercy and kindness Lord Vishnu) saw that a big tree of arrogance and pride has sprouted in Narad’s heart and thought it fit to uproot it right away recalling that He is committed to ensure the greater good of His Bhaktas who are His servants.

Lord Vishnu thought that it will be fun for Him while ensuring welfare of Muni Narad and therefore some remedial measures have to be applied. Narad (without having inkling about what was going in side mind of Lord Vishnu) bowed down at feet of Lord Hari and went about his business with further inflated ego.

Right at that stage Shripati Lord Vishnu invoked His power of Maya (the force which strikes the Jivas to fall under state of seeing things not as they are) and we would know what havoc was done by it (in life of Narad); it created a city as large as 100 Yojan (one Yojan equals around 4.5 KM) on the way Narad had taken for going back; this city was made more diversified in construction and beauty than Sriniwaspur (Lord Vishnu’s own capital town)

We have now covered up to Doha 129 of Balkand.

सुनु मुनि मोह होइ मन ताकें। ग्यान बिराग हृदय नहिं जाके।।
ब्रह्मचरज ब्रत रत मतिधीरा। तुम्हहि कि करइ मनोभव पीरा।।
नारद कहेउ सहित अभिमाना। कृपा तुम्हारि सकल भगवाना।।
करुनानिधि मन दीख बिचारी। उर अंकुरेउ गरब तरु भारी।।
बेगि सो मै डारिहउँ उखारी। पन हमार सेवक हितकारी।।
मुनि कर हित मम कौतुक होई। अवसि उपाय करबि मै सोई।।
तब नारद हरि पद सिर नाई। चले हृदयँ अहमिति अधिकाई।।
श्रीपति निज माया तब प्रेरी। सुनहु कठिन करनी तेहि केरी।।
दो0-बिरचेउ मग महुँ नगर तेहिं सत जोजन बिस्तार।
श्रीनिवासपुर तें अधिक रचना बिबिध प्रकार।।129।।
