सुनु मृदु गूढ़ रुचिर बर रचना। कृपासिंधु बोले मृदु बचना।।
जो कछु रुचि तुम्हेर मन माहीं। मैं सो दीन्ह सब संसय नाहीं।।
मातु बिबेक अलोकिक तोरें। कबहुँ न मिटिहि अनुग्रह मोरें ।
बंदि चरन मनु कहेउ बहोरी। अवर एक बिनति प्रभु मोरी।।
सुत बिषइक तव पद रति होऊ। मोहि बड़ मूढ़ कहै किन कोऊ।।
मनि बिनु फनि जिमि जल बिनु मीना। मम जीवन तिमि तुम्हहि अधीना।।
अस बरु मागि चरन गहि रहेऊ। एवमस्तु करुनानिधि कहेऊ।।
अब तुम्ह मम अनुसासन मानी। बसहु जाइ सुरपति रजधानी।।
सो0-तहँ करि भोग बिसाल तात गउँ कछु काल पुनि।
होइहहु अवध भुआल तब मैं होब तुम्हार सुत।।151।।

We covered up to Doha 151 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that after giving the desired boons Lord has asked Manu to go and enjoy fully his time in the city of Indra Devta till the time he gets born in the Ayodhya Nagari and becomes king there.

The Lord is further telling Manu, “O father, in the same form and looks (as a human) as you have desired, I will manifest in your house (Lord did not say that I will get born, because he never ceases to be hence can’t be born but is willing enough to assume human form and become son of the king).

“I will come on earth along with those who have part authority and consciousness of mine i e gods, all will have bodies and then I will be performing various Charitas and Leelas of mine which will be cherished by my Bhaktas.

“Those who will reverentially listen to those Charitas of mine (leave apart who witness them) will be blessed and be fortunate, they will be able to cross over the ocean of being as they will be able to shed Mamta (sense of belonging and meum) and Mada (arrogance and stupor).

“My Adi-shakti (primordial power) that is called Maya which is responsible for creation of this world of names and forms will also come as an avatar along with Me.

“Your wishes and longings will be taken care and will find fulfillment, this is My firm resolve and it is the truth, it is only the truth.”

Repeating His promises again and again in this manner, the merciful Lord disappeared (the Lord repeatedly lets have the idea that He is not unwilling to fulfill our inner desires but we only fail to become pure of heart, He appears before us whenever intensely concentrated upon with a heart full of devotion, belief and respect. He does not go away, only disappears because we lose sight of Him due to our lack of concentration in part and in accordance with His will in part).

The couple kept the image, of benevolent Lord who showers favours on His Bhaktas, in their heart and stayed for some more time in the Ashram (in the forest area where they had conducted the intense Tapa). When the day of departing i e shedding body arrived they left their bodies in an effortless manner (those who have lost the sense of ownership and interest in the pleasures of the world through Tapa and on account of having seen God i e have known the reality, do not become disturbed and do not have any sense of loss while the Atman leaves the body i e death occurs) and went in the upper realms (of gods to spend the intervening time between the death and the next birth with their subtle bodies).

“This is that very sacred part of history (as good as a legend) which Brishketu (Shiv) told Uma,” Yagyavlkya tells Bhardwaj, ” listen now to other such piece which became the cause for birth of Ram.”

We have now covered up to Doha 152 of Balkand which ends with 5th rest for a month long recitation of the whole of Ramcharit Manas.

इच्छामय नरबेष सँवारें। होइहउँ प्रगट निकेत तुम्हारे।।
अंसन्ह सहित देह धरि ताता। करिहउँ चरित भगत सुखदाता।।
जे सुनि सादर नर बड़भागी। भव तरिहहिं ममता मद त्यागी।।
आदिसक्ति जेहिं जग उपजाया। सोउ अवतरिहि मोरि यह माया।।
पुरउब मैं अभिलाष तुम्हारा। सत्य सत्य पन सत्य हमारा।।
पुनि पुनि अस कहि कृपानिधाना। अंतरधान भए भगवाना।।
दंपति उर धरि भगत कृपाला। तेहिं आश्रम निवसे कछु काला।।
समय पाइ तनु तजि अनयासा। जाइ कीन्ह अमरावति बासा।।
दो0-यह इतिहास पुनीत अति उमहि कही बृषकेतु।
भरद्वाज सुनु अपर पुनि राम जनम कर हेतु।।152।।

Bhavani Shankar Ki Jai!
Prabhu Shri Ram Ki Jai!
Sant Samaaj Ko Pranaam!
Goswami Tulsidas Ki jai!

HariOm,

Krishna Khandelwal
