बहुरि कीन्ह कोसलपति पूजा। जानि ईस सम भाउ न दूजा।।
कीन्ह जोरि कर बिनय बड़ाई। कहि निज भाग्य बिभव बहुताई।।
पूजे भूपति सकल बराती। समधि सम सादर सब भाँती।।
आसन उचित दिए सब काहू। कहौं काह मूख एक उछाहू।।
सकल बरात जनक सनमानी। दान मान बिनती बर बानी।।
बिधि हरि हरु दिसिपति दिनराऊ। जे जानहिं रघुबीर प्रभाऊ।।
कपट बिप्र बर बेष बनाएँ। कौतुक देखहिं अति सचु पाएँ।।
पूजे जनक देव सम जानें। दिए सुआसन बिनु पहिचानें।।
छं0-पहिचान को केहि जान सबहिं अपान सुधि भोरी भई।
आनंद कंदु बिलोकि दूलहु उभय दिसि आनँद मई।।
सुर लखे राम सुजान पूजे मानसिक आसन दए।
अवलोकि सीलु सुभाउ प्रभु को बिबुध मन प्रमुदित भए।।
दो0-रामचंद्र मुख चंद्र छबि लोचन चारु चकोर।
करत पान सादर सकल प्रेमु प्रमोदु न थोर।।321।।

We covered up to Doha 321 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that King Janak honored King Dashrath and respectfully seated him and then in a similar manner made all the other Baraties comfortable. The gods disguising themselves as learned Brahimins had also come there to have the pleasure of watching the marriage of Shri Ram taking place and without even recognizing them King Janak suitably worshiped them too and provided nice sitting places. Every one had become lost himself, how then could any body identify and know the others. Lord Shri Ram who is all knowledgeable could however know about the presence of gods and therefore worshiped them mentally and offered them seats too.

समउ बिलोकि बसिष्ठ बोलाए। सादर सतानंदु सुनि आए।।
बेगि कुअँरि अब आनहु जाई। चले मुदित मुनि आयसु पाई।।
रानी सुनि उपरोहित बानी। प्रमुदित सखिन्ह समेत सयानी।।
बिप्र बधू कुलबृद्ध बोलाईं। करि कुल रीति सुमंगल गाईं।।
नारि बेष जे सुर बर बामा। सकल सुभायँ सुंदरी स्यामा।।
तिन्हहि देखि सुखु पावहिं नारीं। बिनु पहिचानि प्रानहु ते प्यारीं।।
बार बार सनमानहिं रानी। उमा रमा सारद सम जानी।।
सीय सँवारि समाजु बनाई। मुदित मंडपहिं चलीं लवाई।।
छं0-चलि ल्याइ सीतहि सखीं सादर सजि सुमंगल भामिनीं।
नवसप्त साजें सुंदरी सब मत्त कुंजर गामिनीं।।
कल गान सुनि मुनि ध्यान त्यागहिं काम कोकिल लाजहीं।
मंजीर नूपुर कलित कंकन ताल गती बर बाजहीं।।
दो0-सोहति बनिता बृंद महुँ सहज सुहावनि सीय।
छबि ललना गन मध्य जनु सुषमा तिय कमनीय।।322।।

When Muni Vashishtth noted that the Muhurat time now approaching, he called Muni Satanand and told him to ask for Sita (to come there); Satanand immediately went to do the same and told Queen Sunayana who in turn became thrilled after listening to Kulguru’s message that the long awaited moment had arrived. She then summoned her smart friends, the ladies of Vipra households and elderly ladies of the family and performed rituals connected with the present stage of ceremonies while singing festive songs invoking grace of gods.

The honorable consorts of gods, who by nature were owning good disposition and were disguised as beautiful and graceful women of high families, had been present in the midst of groups of ladies in Sunayana’s palace and were given due honor by queen considering them no less than Uma, Rama and Brahmani without recognizing them who they rally were. There presence was also being enjoyed by all the ladies assembled there. Bubbling with joy, all of them helped Sita get ready and then surrounded her for being escorted towards the central pavilion.

Very well dressed up and with application of pious and auspicious stuffs, Sita’s friends took her along with care and concern towards the pavilion; all of them had treated themselves to sixteen way adornment and ornamentation, they had walk as graceful as that of an elephant in musth. They sang in very melodious voices, their sweet sound was able to stir the sentiments of even the Munis in their meditative stage. The cooing of cuckoos of the Kaamdev himself would not have had an impact like their singing was able to. Their anklets and the bangles were making a matching and complimentary music while they walked.

Sita in the midst of groups of ladies seemed outstandingly beautiful as she possessed natural good looks; it looked as being in the center of personified groups of grace as personified charm.

We have now covered up to Doha 322 of Balkand.

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


Krishna Khandelwal

S∂tå in Her native loveliness shone forth among the bevy of ladies as a charming
personification of Beauty in the midst of the Graces.
