मुनि मंडलिहि जनक सिरु नावा। आसिरबादु सबहि सन पावा।।
सादर पुनि भेंटे जामाता। रूप सील गुन निधि सब भ्राता।।
जोरि पंकरुह पानि सुहाए। बोले बचन प्रेम जनु जाए।।
राम करौ केहि भाँति प्रसंसा। मुनि महेस मन मानस हंसा।।
करहिं जोग जोगी जेहि लागी। कोहु मोहु ममता मदु त्यागी।।
ब्यापकु ब्रह्मु अलखु अबिनासी। चिदानंदु निरगुन गुनरासी।।
मन समेत जेहि जान न बानी। तरकि न सकहिं सकल अनुमानी।।
महिमा निगमु नेति कहि कहई। जो तिहुँ काल एकरस रहई।।
दो0-नयन बिषय मो कहुँ भयउ सो समस्त सुख मूल।
सबइ लाभु जग जीव कहँ भएँ ईसु अनुकुल।।341।।

We covered up to Doha 341 of Balkand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that King Janak who had come too far following the marriage party returning to Ayodhya met King Dashrath and Munis with great love and respect finally before turning back. He met the sons-in-law too and then addressed Shri Ram with folded hands saying praises of Him with realization that He was none other than the same very blissful God whom He had known as a formless one, indescribable and all-pervading.

सबहि भाँति मोहि दीन्हि बड़ाई। निज जन जानि लीन्ह अपनाई।।
होहिं सहस दस सारद सेषा। करहिं कलप कोटिक भरि लेखा।।
मोर भाग्य राउर गुन गाथा। कहि न सिराहिं सुनहु रघुनाथा।।
मै कछु कहउँ एक बल मोरें। तुम्ह रीझहु सनेह सुठि थोरें।।
बार बार मागउँ कर जोरें। मनु परिहरै चरन जनि भोरें।।
सुनि बर बचन प्रेम जनु पोषे। पूरनकाम रामु परितोषे।।
करि बर बिनय ससुर सनमाने। पितु कौसिक बसिष्ठ सम जाने।।
बिनती बहुरि भरत सन कीन्ही। मिलि सप्रेमु पुनि आसिष दीन्ही।।
दो0-मिले लखन रिपुसूदनहि दीन्हि असीस महीस।
भए परस्पर प्रेमबस फिरि फिरि नावहिं सीस।।342।।

King Janak told Ram, “you gave me high status and great honor, you even accepted me as one of your devotee and now I am your own. There may be ten thousand Goddess Sharda and Shesh Naag who keep an account of a ten million Kalpas (time cycles) to find some one who is as lucky as me or to speak of stories to explain all your virtues and benevolent acts but would fail to cover it entirely. I would dare to speak only of one of your leaning and preference as far as my understanding goes and it is that You value and get pleased only by a pure sentiment of love for You.I only wish to be granted just one boon by You and it is that I should never ever be having a mind or mental state that is forgetful of Your feet.”

When Ram listened to the considered opinion and profound sentiments of King Janak which were enriched with his heartfelt love for Him, Lord Ram gave assurances and satisfied Janak who even otherwise had achieved and enjoyed all that is there in the world. Lord Ram praised His father-in-law saying some thoughtful words considering him no less than His own father (King Dashrath) and Guru Vishwamitra. King Janak then pleased Bharat with kind words and showered his affections and blessings on him. Lastly King Janak met Lakshman and Shatrughan too in a similar manner and blessed them too.

We have now covered up to Doha 342 of Balkand.
