पंच कवल करि जेवन लअगे। गारि गान सुनि अति अनुरागे।।
भाँति अनेक परे पकवाने। सुधा सरिस नहिं जाहिं बखाने।।
परुसन लगे सुआर सुजाना। बिंजन बिबिध नाम को जाना।।
चारि भाँति भोजन बिधि गाई। एक एक बिधि बरनि न जाई।।
छरस रुचिर बिंजन बहु जाती। एक एक रस अगनित भाँती।।
जेवँत देहिं मधुर धुनि गारी। लै लै नाम पुरुष अरु नारी।।
समय सुहावनि गारि बिराजा। हँसत राउ सुनि सहित समाजा।।
एहि बिधि सबहीं भौजनु कीन्हा। आदर सहित आचमनु दीन्हा।।
दो0-देइ पान पूजे जनक दसरथु सहित समाज।
जनवासेहि गवने मुदित सकल भूप सिरताज।।329।।

We covered up to Doha 329 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas
in the last post and learned that King Dashrath’s side enjoyed the feast given by King Janak; all kinds of flavors and variety of foods were offered which were prepared and served by expert cooks. King Dashrath and others immensely enjoyed the raillery indulged in King Janak’s side without minding it as it was an an occasion for such things. King Dahsrath and party later went back to their resting place with an elevated mood.

नित नूतन मंगल पुर माहीं। निमिष सरिस दिन जामिनि जाहीं।।
बड़े भोर भूपतिमनि जागे। जाचक गुन गन गावन लागे।।
देखि कुअँर बर बधुन्ह समेता। किमि कहि जात मोदु मन जेता।।
प्रातक्रिया करि गे गुरु पाहीं। महाप्रमोदु प्रेमु मन माहीं।।
करि प्रनाम पूजा कर जोरी। बोले गिरा अमिअँ जनु बोरी।।
तुम्हरी कृपाँ सुनहु मुनिराजा। भयउँ आजु मैं पूरनकाजा।।
अब सब बिप्र बोलाइ गोसाईं। देहु धेनु सब भाँति बनाई।।
सुनि गुर करि महिपाल बड़ाई। पुनि पठए मुनि बृंद बोलाई।।
दो0-बामदेउ अरु देवरिषि बालमीकि जाबालि।
आए मुनिबर निकर तब कौसिकादि तपसालि।।330।।

There were new kind of celebrations in Janakpuri every day and therefore the days and nights passed like a few moments. One day Dashrath, the jewel among the kings of the day, woke up in the early morning when the beggars and the needy began to sing praises of him; the King then saw his sons along with their respective brides and felt an unspeakable surge of joy. King Dashrath finished his daily routine and stepped out to meet Guru Vashishtth greatly pleased and steeped in love for all.

Bowing down before the Guru with hands folded he spoke in very sweet voice saturated with nectar and said, “O, high among Munis, with your grace I have today accomplished all that I set out to. O Master, now you may call all the Vipras and give them cows duly decorated (the king had been reminded by mendicants by singing praises of him that some thing had remained to do by way of pay back for having such good fortune which had fulfilled all his desires till date).”

Knowing what King Dashrath now wanted, Guru Vashishtth appreciated his decision and sent messengers for calling the Munis and all like Vamdev, Jabaali, Devarshi Narad and Valmiki as also the great Muni Vishwamitra along with all the rest of the Munis engaged in Tapa came as per the wishes of Guru Vashishtth.

(Whenever a king has accomplished his own desired objectives which happens only on account of guidance, good wishes and efforts of Vipras and Munis, it becomes duty of the king to immediately take care of needs of Munis. Cows provide every thing that Munis need hence the king and other people in society give it great importance to give cows and means to look after them to the Munis.)
