लखन हृदयँ लालसा बिसेषी। जाइ जनकपुर आइअ देखी।।
प्रभु भय बहुरि मुनिहि सकुचाहीं। प्रगट न कहहिं मनहिं मुसुकाहीं।।
राम अनुज मन की गति जानी। भगत बछलता हिंयँ हुलसानी।।
परम बिनीत सकुचि मुसुकाई। बोले गुर अनुसासन पाई।।
नाथ लखनु पुरु देखन चहहीं। प्रभु सकोच डर प्रगट न कहहीं।।
जौं राउर आयसु मैं पावौं। नगर देखाइ तुरत लै आवौ।।
सुनि मुनीसु कह बचन सप्रीती। कस न राम तुम्ह राखहु नीती।।
धरम सेतु पालक तुम्ह ताता। प्रेम बिबस सेवक सुखदाता।।
दो0-जाइ देखी आवहु नगरु सुख निधान दोउ भाइ।
करहु सुफल सब के नयन सुंदर बदन देखाइ।।218।।
मासपारायण, आठवाँ विश्राम
नवान्हपारायण, दूसरा विश्राम

We covered up to Doha 218 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that Ram has come to instinctively guess that younger brother Lakshman is desirous of visiting the town but due to reluctance and respect of Muni and Shri Ram is not expressing it. Ram then asks Muni himself for the permission to take Lakshaman around and come back early. Muni appreciates Ram attitude and even speaks of His qualities that give an insight in to His Supreme Godhood also, the deeper meaning of it all was attempted to be conveyed in the last post itself.

The two brothers (Ram and Lakshman) reverentially touched feet of Muni Vishawamitra and both of them left for the visit to the town; they themselves were delight for the eyes of all who saw them and they were like the eyes of the world spreading pleasure all around just by looking all over.

The groups of children who happened to notice them and their beauty joined them getting interested in them immediately after glancing towards them. Ram and Lakshman were attired in yellow colored clothes and had a quiver tied to their waists, their hands held beautiful bows and arrows in a fashionable way. The attractive, fair and dark complexioned pair of the two brothers had their bodies streaked and smeared with sandalwood paste which enhanced the grace.

Their neck and shoulders resembled that of a lion and their arms were long besides they had a lovely Nagmani-Mala (garland made of pearls obtained from the foreheads of elephants) dangling around the neck and over their broad chest.

Their lovely eyes were like red-lotus and their face like moon which was able to sublimate the three types of agonies i e of the body, the fate related and due to the physical conditions.

The golden ornaments adorned their ears, such was the beauty that it stole heart just when looked at by eyes of beholder. Their glance was maddening and their eyes-brows were curved rightly and from in between the eye-brows a beautiful line of mark (Tilak) rose up the forehead.

On their beautiful head was placed an attractive retegular type cap and dark curly hairs dropped out of it. The two brothers looked handsome from tip to toe, each of their limb was as shapely and charming as it ought to be.

We have now covered up to Doha 219 of Balkand.

मुनि पद कमल बंदि दोउ भ्राता। चले लोक लोचन सुख दाता।।
बालक बृंदि देखि अति सोभा। लगे संग लोचन मनु लोभा।।
पीत बसन परिकर कटि भाथा। चारु चाप सर सोहत हाथा।।
तन अनुहरत सुचंदन खोरी। स्यामल गौर मनोहर जोरी।।
केहरि कंधर बाहु बिसाला। उर अति रुचिर नागमनि माला।।
सुभग सोन सरसीरुह लोचन। बदन मयंक तापत्रय मोचन।।
कानन्हि कनक फूल छबि देहीं। चितवत चितहि चोरि जनु लेहीं।।
चितवनि चारु भृकुटि बर बाँकी। तिलक रेखा सोभा जनु चाँकी।।
दो0-रुचिर चौतनीं सुभग सिर मेचक कुंचित केस।
नख सिख सुंदर बंधु दोउ सोभा सकल सुदेस।।219।।
