Ramcharit Charcha CCLIV

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

We covered up to Doha 261 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that Ram broke the bow of Shiv in a fraction of a second (in fact the bundle of ego of all represented by bow of Shiv could not stand in front of the Supreme God, the real doer behind every act, the spec of consciousness in every individual is part the conscious whole that Supreme God really is). All then exclaimed hailing Ram for His victory, even demons saw themselves as inferior to Ram at this moment (they had become powerless in even lifting the bow).

That Lord Ram had dropped the two pieces of the bow on earth, all the people present at the venue became happy and pleased (they had been wishing for it, had even staked all their good deeds for it).

Muni Kaushik (Vishwamitra) looked like an ocean of pure water of love, in which any one could have taken a dip and become pure himself. The love-ocea like persona of Muni became enlarged (like ocean tide) upon seeing the moon like beauty of Ram. Muni’s body thrilled and his sighs of pleasure seemed like waves in the ocean (Muni was particularly happy to see the power of Lord Shri Ram whom he had already known as the God, when the endoresement of belief is unmistakenly had, the sense of achievement and fulfillment is natural).

Drums sounded in the heavens and godesses danced and sang songs. Brahma ji and other gods, Siddhas and Munis, all praised Lord Ram and gave their blessings too (Ram as son of King Dashrath used to pray to them), they showered flowers of many types and wreaths of flowers of different colors. The Kinnars also sang interestign songs fitting the occasion, there was so much noise that filled the place with shouts of Victory to Ram that the reverberation of sould of bow-breaking became subdued. All were only talking happily that Ram has broken the formidable bow of Shiv at that moment (they knew importance of this as Sita was now married to Ram technically).

The bards and other contigents of servents sang praises with patience and substance. All those present started giving away horses, elephants, money, jewels and clothes wishing welfare of the young and victorious Ram after invoking the blessings of gods (it is customery to offer distribute goods and valueables among the needy when a loved one accomplishes some thing or any event is organized around them).

We have now covered up to Doha 262 of Balkand.

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

HariOm,

Krishna Khandelwal

(Mahadev Shiv is god of Ahamkar and is the highest among the gods, the bow of Shiv represents ego of people and this ego can only surrender before Ram, the Supreme God i e Shri Ram, Sita as Bhakti blesses only those who surrender their ego and let them be dear to Shri Ram. In other words when ego of people is eliminated from occupying the mind people by grace of Lord Shri Ram, the Bhakti nursed by them in their hearts is able to reach them to be one with God Supreme.)
