बोली अपर कहेहु सखि नीका। एहिं बिआह अति हित सबहीं का।।
कोउ कह संकर चाप कठोरा। ए स्यामल मृदुगात किसोरा।।
सबु असमंजस अहइ सयानी। यह सुनि अपर कहइ मृदु बानी।।
खि इन्ह कहँ कोउ कोउ अस कहहीं। बड़ प्रभाउ देखत लघु अहहीं।।
परसि जासु पद पंकज धूरी। तरी अहल्या कृत अघ भूरी।।
सो कि रहिहि बिनु सिवधनु तोरें। यह प्रतीति परिहरिअ न भोरें।।
जेहिं बिरंचि रचि सीय सँवारी। तेहिं स्यामल बरु रचेउ बिचारी।।
तासु बचन सुनि सब हरषानीं। ऐसेइ होउ कहहिं मुदु बानी।।
दो0-हियँ हरषहिं बरषहिं सुमन सुमुखि सुलोचनि बृंद।
जाहिं जहाँ जहँ बंधु दोउ तहँ तहँ परमानंद।।223।।

We covered I up to Doha 223 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas and learned that the ladies in Janakpuri wished for marriage of Ram with Sita but some thought that breaking the strong bow of Shiv would be difficult for Ram to break while some others had belief that Ram would be able to do it recalling Ahalya’s end of woes by Ram. The friends also concluded that Ram and Sita were made for each other. All world seemed to enjoy bliss where ever the two brothers, Ram and Lakshman, went visiting the town.

The two brothers Ram and Lakshman took a turn in direction of east while roaming about in town where the venue for the great event of trial of strength for breaking the bow of Lord Shiv was being readied. A big expense of land had been leveled and a suitable and attractive stage was carefully built there. All around it raised platforms were decorated for the kings to sit. Behind the front rows meant for the kings were huge and further raised platforms for people but no less in comfort. For ladies a seperate arrangement was done with white back ground and colorful decoration in equally grand measure. In all, the place was prepared to provide a suitable seat to all according to their status and importance and keeping in midst of like people.

The accompanying boys from the city were explaining the arrangement in soft tones to Lord (Ram) and the smaller kids took the opportunity to even touch His attractive body being greatly in love for Him. They were getting bodily thrilled and mentally overwhelmed by looking at the two brothers (the younger age children have capacity to enjoy the company of God in ordinary course of life; they had the feel and the nearness to Him more easily because their minds are not polluted and are much purer than the grown ups. It is therefore to be understood that the God is more easily felt and known by simple hearted with a natural love in heart than by those who become learned but become complicated in mind due to passions and prejudices.)

We have now covered up to Doha 224 of Balkand.

पुर पूरब दिसि गे दोउ भाई। जहँ धनुमख हित भूमि बनाई।।
अति बिस्तार चारु गच ढारी। बिमल बेदिका रुचिर सँवारी।।
चहुँ दिसि कंचन मंच बिसाला। रचे जहाँ बेठहिं महिपाला।।
tion तेहि पाछें समीप चहुँ पासा। अपर मंच मंडली बिलासा।।
कछुक ऊँचि सब भाँति सुहाई। बैठहिं नगर लोग जहँ जाई।।
तिन्ह के निकट बिसाल सुहाए। धवल धाम बहुबरन बनाए।।
जहँ बैंठैं देखहिं सब नारी। जथा जोगु निज कुल अनुहारी।।
पुर बालक कहि कहि मृदु बचना। सादर प्रभुहि देखावहिं रचना।।
दो0-सब सिसु एहि मिस प्रेमबस परसि मनोहर गात।
तन पुलकहिं अति हरषु हियँ देखि देखि दोउ भ्रात।।224।।

Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jail!
