दंड प्रनाम सबहि नृप कीन्हे। पूजि सप्रेम बरासन दीन्हे।।
चारि लच्छ बर धेनु मगाई। कामसुरभि सम सील सुहाई।।
सब बिधि सकल अलंकृत कीन्हीं। मुदित महिप महिदेवन्ह दीन्हीं।।
करत बिनय बहु बिधि नरनाहू। लहेउँ आजु जग जीवन लाहू।।
पाइ असीस महीसु अनंदा। लिए बोलि पुनि जाचक बृंदा।।
कनक बसन मनि हय गय स्यंदन। दिए बूझि रुचि रबिकुलनंदन।।
चले पढ़त गावत गुन गाथा। जय जय जय दिनकर कुल नाथा।।
एहि बिधि राम बिआह उछाहू। सकइ न बरनि सहस मुख जाहू।।
दो0-बार बार कौसिक चरन सीसु नाइ कह राउ।
यह सबु सुखु मुनिराज तव कृपा कटाच्छ पसाउ।।331।।

We covered up to Doha 331 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsdas in the last post and learned that King Dashrath bestowed on Munis and Brahmins cows of good breed with humility and gave them thanks for having achieved so much in life and received their blessings. King also gave the required items of value to all beggars and needy. All of them thanked him and went away singing his praises. King Dashrath expressed his extra-ordinary gratitude towards Muni Vihwamitra too who had been instrumental in the marriages of his sons and for other things.

जनक सनेहु सीलु करतूती। नृपु सब भाँति सराह बिभूती।।
दिन उठि बिदा अवधपति मागा। राखहिं जनकु सहित अनुरागा।।
नित नूतन आदरु अधिकाई। दिन प्रति सहस भाँति पहुनाई।।
नित नव नगर अनंद उछाहू। दसरथ गवनु सोहाइ न काहू।।
बहुत दिवस बीते एहि भाँती। जनु सनेह रजु बँधे बराती।।
कौसिक सतानंद तब जाई। कहा बिदेह नृपहि समुझाई।।
अब दसरथ कहँ आयसु देहू। जद्यपि छाड़ि न सकहु सनेहू।।
भलेहिं नाथ कहि सचिव बोलाए। कहि जय जीव सीस तिन्ह नाए।।
दो0-अवधनाथु चाहत चलन भीतर करहु जनाउ।
भए प्रेमबस सचिव सुनि बिप्र सभासद राउ।।332।।

King Dashrath commended King Janak too about his affection, his courteous behavior and for going to great lengths to please them all and appreciated for very sumptuous treatment of all. Almost every day King Dashrath asked leave to go back to Ayodhya but King Janak used to lovingly force him to stay. King Janak gave the marriage party greater respect and new occasions to celebrate every passing day. So many new entertaining events were being organized in the city and none of the citizen wanted Dashrath to leave for Ayodhya. Many more days passed in this manner and it seemed that the Baraties were tied down by a love-cord. One day Muni Vishwamitra and Guru Shatanand thought that it was now required to return to attend to duties for both sides and therefore they approached King Janak and convincingly said, “you must now let King Dashrath go even if your affection and love for him deters you.” King Janak immediately got the point (that nicest of things have to come to an end) and summoned his ministers who immediately turned up and wished for long life of King and bowed down before him.

King Janak declared that King Dashrath now wants to leave for Ayodhya and this be informed to queen inside the palace; all of the people present their including the king himself, the Vipras and the courtiers became overwhelmed listening to this final declaration of King Dashrath’s departure from Janakpuri.

Bhavani Shankar Ki Jai!

Sant Samaj Ko Pranam!
Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jai!
