बैठे सुर सब करहिं बिचारा। कहँ पाइअ प्रभु करिअ पुकारा।।
पुर बैकुंठ जान कह कोई। कोउ कह पयनिधि बस प्रभु सोई।।
जाके हृदयँ भगति जसि प्रीति। प्रभु तहँ प्रगट सदा तेहिं रीती।।
तेहि समाज गिरिजा मैं रहेऊँ। अवसर पाइ बचन एक कहेऊँ।।
हरि ब्यापक सर्बत्र समाना। प्रेम तें प्रगट होहिं मैं जाना।।
देस काल दिसि बिदिसिहु माहीं। कहहु सो कहाँ जहाँ प्रभु नाहीं।।
अग जगमय सब रहित बिरागी। प्रेम तें प्रभु प्रगटइ जिमि आगी।।
मोर बचन सब के मन माना। साधु साधु करि ब्रह्म बखाना।।
दो0-सुनि बिरंचि मन हरष तन पुलकि नयन बह नीर।
अस्तुति करत जोरि कर सावधान मतिधीर।।185।।

We covered up to Doha 185 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas and learned that while all gods and others were deliberating as where to find the Supreme God, Lord Shiva reminded them that God is all pervading all the time and can by realized only through love. Brahmaji when reminded of this became overwhelmed with emotion and began praying.

Brahmaji prayed saying, “Glory to You O Lord of immortal gods, giver of peace, protector of suppliant, O God Supreme, benefactor of cows and Dwijas, glory be to You, You are the beloved consort of Laxmi, the daughter of the ocean.You only take care of the gods and the earth, Your ways are mysterious, no body can get to the bottom of what and how You do. You are naturally merciful, You have concern for the poor and weak hence please shower Your graces on us too.

“O Mukunda ( a name of God), glory be to You who is present in every body as immortal soul extending all over,far and wide and are the ultimate bliss. You are not known because You are beyond the reach of senses but Your conduct is always pure and holy because You are also beyond Maya (i e Maya is under Your control). O Sachchidananda Prabhu(the truth, consciousness and blissful Lord), glory be to you, it is You who is continuously contemplated upon, You are remembered for Your endless virtues by singing them by Munis, it is for Your sake that they become dispassionate, become full of love and go beyond egoistic attitude of false ownership.”

“You are the real one who has brought about this creation which is kept under the three modes of orientation i e Satvic, Rajsic and Tamasic without the help of another (here Brahma, the creators declares that he just holds the title of creator while the reality behind creation is the Supreme God, we should also therefore not think ourselves as the doers but rather should understand that we too an instrument in hand of God). You prefer not sins hence please help us, we are not experts in worshiping or in devotional services (we are like ignorant children of Yours). You only can break the spell of fear of the world, You are delight the hearts of Munis (when contemplated upon), You only are the remover of the bundles of troubles, we the gods and others seek shelter under You shedding all cunningness in thought speech and deed.

“You are not entirely known even to Sharda (goddess of learning), to Vedas, or to the Rishis but what the Vedas do say is that the humble and weaker are loved by You, that Lord of Mother Laxmi, You may precipitate Your kindness for us. The You are the mountain Mandar in the ocean of life and birth (offering shelter) and are beautiful abode of virtues in every way which can provide the bouquet of pleasures. All the Siddhas, Munis and gods are very shaken with fear and are bowing down at Your lotus feet.”

After this meaningful prayer and learning of the fears of the earth and the gods, a loving voice from the skies made announcement to remove the grief and doubts (the doubts whether they would be helped).

We have now covered up to Doha 186 of Balkand.

छं0-जय जय सुरनायक जन सुखदायक प्रनतपाल भगवंता।
गो द्विज हितकारी जय असुरारी सिधुंसुता प्रिय कंता।।
पालन सुर धरनी अद्भुत करनी मरम न जानइ कोई।
जो सहज कृपाला दीनदयाला करउ अनुग्रह सोई।।
जय जय अबिनासी सब घट बासी ब्यापक परमानंदा।
अबिगत गोतीतं चरित पुनीतं मायारहित मुकुंदा।।
जेहि लागि बिरागी अति अनुरागी बिगतमोह मुनिबृंदा।
निसि बासर ध्यावहिं गुन गन गावहिं जयति सच्चिदानंदा।।
जेहिं सृष्टि उपाई त्रिबिध बनाई संग सहाय न दूजा।
सो करउ अघारी चिंत हमारी जानिअ भगति न पूजा।।
जो भव भय भंजन मुनि मन रंजन गंजन बिपति बरूथा।
मन बच क्रम बानी छाड़ि सयानी सरन सकल सुर जूथा।।
सारद श्रुति सेषा रिषय असेषा जा कहुँ कोउ नहि जाना।
जेहि दीन पिआरे बेद पुकारे द्रवउ सो श्रीभगवाना।।
भव बारिधि मंदर सब बिधि सुंदर गुनमंदिर सुखपुंजा।
मुनि सिद्ध सकल सुर परम भयातुर नमत नाथ पद कंजा।।
दो0-जानि सभय सुरभूमि सुनि बचन समेत सनेह।
गगनगिरा गंभीर भइ हरनि सोक संदेह।।186।।
