Jai Shri Ram,

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

भूप सहस दस एकहि बारा। लगे उठावन टरइ न टारा।।
डगइ न संभु सरासन कैसें। कामी बचन सती मनु जैसें।।
सब नृप भए जोगु उपहासी। जैसें बिनु बिराग संन्यासी।।
कीरति बिजय बीरता भारी। चले चाप कर बरबस हारी।।
श्रीहत भए हारि हियँ राजा। बैठे निज निज जाइ समाजा।।
नृपन्ह बिलोकि जनकु अकुलाने। बोले बचन रोष जनु साने।।
दीप दीप के भूपति नाना। आए सुनि हम जो पनु ठाना।।
देव दनुज धरि मनुज सरीरा। बिपुल बीर आए रनधीरा।।
दो0-कुअँरि मनोहर बिजय बड़ि कीरति अति कमनीय।
पावनिहार बिरंचि जनु रचेउ न धनु दमनीय।।251।।

We covered up to Doha 251 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that King Janak became dejected when he found that all the kings who attempted to lift the bow of Shiv failed even to move it in smallest measure leave apart breaking it.

Though the kings suffered loss of face and confidence, Janak himself got worried and began pouring his mind out. Janak went further on telling, “I want to know who on earth would not want to grab the prize on offer here; the bow of Shankar remains unstringed so far, leave apart stringing or breaking, it couldn’t be moved as much as a tiny dot. I would now consider the earth to be without any heros and no body should feel bad if not called a respectable hero any more. With hope belied, you all may proceed back to your homes, it seems that Sita hasn’t been fated to be a bride. I am in a bad situation, if I shun my vow I would lose all the Sukrut (good deeds that result in Punya, the effect that is carried to other worlds on account of righteous living) which will become ineffective, alternatively my unmarried daughter will remain unwed. Had I known earlier that the world is not left with brave and gallant people any more, I wouldn’t have taken this vow and invited misfortune of being laughed at.”

The words of Janak made all the people sad and when they looked at Sita also did they got saddened but Lakshman reacted differently, he became charged and stress appeared on eye-brows, the lips quivered and eyes bulged with anger. Lakshman was under discipline of Ram hence controlled his anger and bow down at the feet of elder brother Ram before speaking before the people gathered there. We have now covered up to Doha 252 of Balkand.

कहहु काहि यहु लाभु न भावा। काहुँ न संकर चाप चढ़ावा।।
रहउ चढ़ाउब तोरब भाई। तिलु भरि भूमि न सके छड़ाई।।
अब जनि कोउ माखै भट मानी। बीर बिहीन मही मैं जानी।।
तजहु आस निज निज गृह जाहू। लिखा न बिधि बैदेहि बिबाहू।।
सुकृत जाइ जौं पनु परिहरऊँ। कुअँरि कुआरि रहउ का करऊँ।।
जो जनतेउँ बिनु भट भुबि भाई। तौ पनु करि होतेउँ न हँसाई।।
जनक बचन सुनि सब नर नारी। देखि जानकिहि भए दुखारी।।
माखे लखनु कुटिल भइँ भौंहें। रदपट फरकत नयन रिसौंहें।।
दो0-कहि न सकत रघुबीर डर लगे बचन जनु बान।
नाइ राम पद कमल सिरु बोले गिरा प्रमान।।252।।
