II Shree Guruvey Namah II

Jai Shri Ram,

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II
II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II
II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

We covered up to Doha 265 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last pos and learned that all three worlds and people there started rejoicing and celebrating the garlanding of Shri Ram by Sita. They saw the couple ,Sita and Ram, like personified beauty and love together. Sita then was prompted to touch feet of Ram but could not because she was now one with Her Lord and therefore how could she act like another person and Ram knew that their love and oneness was unworldly matter and appreciated what Sita did.

When the foolish, cruel and mentally enraged kings who were ready to spoil the name of their fathers saw Sita they once again wished to get her. They put on their armor and started to brag about their strength and wanted to snatch Sita away from Ram and take the two in bondage (because they knew that the condition of marriage was already fulfilled by Ram and only a fight could let them get Sita). These kings then declared that just the breaking of bow will not be enough, till the time they  are alive no body would be able to marry Sita. They even said that if Janak resists then he too may be defeated along with the two brothers.

When the nobler kings listened to this kind of irrational talk of wicked kings they said,”O Kings, your prestige has already gone, your braveness, influence and stregth as also your honor has been finished along with the breaking of bow. Can you tell us that it is the same valor that failed you earlier that you are showing it again or is it freshly gained? Because you have such poor intellect, you have your faces blackened by ink.

“It would appropriate for you to see Ram with eyes fully open and don’t suffer under emotion like jealousy, false pride and unfounded anger. You must also know that anger of Lakshman is such fire that it can engulf you any time and burn you down like moth.”

(The kings had seen Lakshman challenging all earlier and knew that it was backed by his capacity to destroy any thing and any body at any time. They had seen Ram only keeping calm and serenely composed hence did not refer to His anger. They may have had a deeper understading that as Supreme God when Ram would be angry, it will be end of all creation while Lakshman was under His command now and ever.)

Bhavani Shankar Ki Jai!
Prabhu Shri Ram Ki Jai!
Sant Samaj Ko Pranam!
Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jai!
