हरि सन मागौं सुंदरताई। होइहि जात गहरु अति भाई।।
मोरें हित हरि सम नहिं कोऊ। एहि अवसर सहाय सोइ होऊ।।
बहुबिधि बिनय कीन्हि तेहि काला। प्रगटेउ प्रभु कौतुकी कृपाला।।
प्रभु बिलोकि मुनि नयन जुड़ाने। होइहि काजु हिएँ हरषाने।।
अति आरति कहि कथा सुनाई। करहु कृपा करि होहु सहाई।।
आपन रूप देहु प्रभु मोही। आन भाँति नहिं पावौं ओही।।
जेहि बिधि नाथ होइ हित मोरा। करहु सो बेगि दास मैं तोरा।।
निज माया बल देखि बिसाला। हियँ हँसि बोले दीनदयाला।।
दो0-जेहि बिधि होइहि परम हित नारद सुनहु तुम्हार।
सोइ हम करब न आन कछु बचन न मृषा हमार।।132।।

We covered up to Doha 132 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that attending to desperate call of Narad, Lord Hari has appeared before him and has promised to do only that what is good for him, for Narad has wanted this from Him besides has asked for being given Lord’s own Roopa (form, this will happen in any case because all forms represent only Him, we will learn later why this is an important thing to note here).

Lord Hari continues telling Narad, ” O Yogi (ascetic) Muni, you are well aware that when a patient is disturbed due to his affliction he may even ask for harmful stuffs but the physician attending to him would not oblige by recommending it or giving it. In the same way I am also committed to ensure your benefit”.

After saying this Lord Hari disappeared from there. The Mayic effect has been so badly gripping Narad that he has become almost a dumb person and hence did not understand Lord Hari’s deeply meaningful message. The renowned seer then proceeded to where the Swayamvar was to take place. All the invited kings were duly seated there; they were richly dressed and adorned, also accompanied by their retinue. On the other hand Muni Narad was happy being sure of being chosen as husband by the princess, in side his heart, rather than looking at any one else.

Paradoxically, The graceful Lord Hari, gave Narad an ugly shape which can’t be exactly described (this says that when undue desires agitate in somebody’s heart he acquires a very ugly shape and this is by God’s own arrangement). This change remained unnoticeable for others (the inner transformation of Muni Narad having become a slave of indecent desires could not be judged by others) who still respected him considering to be the same sage Narad (a devotee and an ascetic).

There were also two Rudra Ganas (Lord Shiv’s attendants) present there who knew what was going on; in the disguise of Brahmanas they were merrily moving about and had noted every thing (being attendants of Shiv some extra power to look in to all aspects beyond the visible).

We have now covered up to Doha 133 of Balkand.

कुपथ माग रुज ब्याकुल रोगी। बैद न देइ सुनहु मुनि जोगी।।
एहि बिधि हित तुम्हार मैं ठयऊ। कहि अस अंतरहित प्रभु भयऊ।।
माया बिबस भए मुनि मूढ़ा। समुझी नहिं हरि गिरा निगूढ़ा।।
गवने तुरत तहाँ रिषिराई। जहाँ स्वयंबर भूमि बनाई।।
निज निज आसन बैठे राजा। बहु बनाव करि सहित समाजा।।
मुनि मन हरष रूप अति मोरें। मोहि तजि आनहि बारिहि न भोरें।।
मुनि हित कारन कृपानिधाना। दीन्ह कुरूप न जाइ बखाना।।
सो चरित्र लखि काहुँ न पावा। नारद जानि सबहिं सिर नावा।।
दो0-रहे तहाँ दुइ रुद्र गन ते जानहिं सब भेउ।
बिप्रबेष देखत फिरहिं परम कौतुकी तेउ।।133।।
