बरनि राम गुन सीलु सुभाऊ। बोले प्रेम पुलकि मुनिराऊ।।
भूप सजेउ अभिषेक समाजू। चाहत देन तुम्हहि जुबराजू।।
राम करहु सब संजम आजू। जौं बिधि कुसल निबाहै काजू।।
गुरु सिख देइ राय पहिं गयउ। राम हृदयँ अस बिसमउ भयऊ।।
जनमे एक संग सब भाई। भोजन सयन केलि लरिकाई।।
करनबेध उपबीत बिआहा। संग संग सब भए उछाहा।।
बिमल बंस यहु अनुचित एकू। बंधु बिहाइ बड़ेहि अभिषेकू।।
प्रभु सप्रेम पछितानि सुहाई। हरउ भगत मन कै कुटिलाई।।
दो0-तेहि अवसर आए लखन मगन प्रेम आनंद।
सनमाने प्रिय बचन कहि रघुकुल कैरव चंद।।10।।
We covered up to Doha 10 of Ayodhya Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that Guru Vashishtth praised Shri Ram for his unmatched qualities and perfect manners and informed him about the decision of the king to hand over the kingdom of Ayodhya. Guru also gave him some good advice suitable to the occasion and returned. Knowing this Ram thought with a sense of remorse that why was he chosen for the regal status while all the brothers were of the same age, had been brought up in the same way and had similar occasions of celebrations including marriage. He considered it to be the only practice in the high family of Raghus which could be faulted. Ram’s line of thinking would guide the wily to reform themselves, the poet Tulsi expects. Shortly Lakshman came to visit Ram and he was put at ease by Ram by addressing him with sweet words, Shri Ram had always been a source of delight to his family members.
बाजहिं बाजने बिबिध बिधाना। पुर प्रमोदु नहिं जाइ बखाना।।
भरत आगमनु सकल मनावहिं। आवहुँ बेगि नयन फलु पावहिं।।
हाट बाट घर गलीं अथाई। कहहिं परसपर लोग लोगाई।।
कालि लगन भलि केतिक बारा। पूजिहि बिधि अभिलाषु हमारा।।
कनक सिंघासन सीय समेता। बैठहिं रामु होइ चित चेता।।
सकल कहहिं कब होइहि काली। बिघन मनावहिं देव कुचाली।।
तिन्हहि सोहाइ न अवध बधावा। चोरहि चंदिनि राति न भावा।।
सारद बोलि बिनय सुर करहीं। बारहिं बार पाय लै परहीं।।
दो0-बिपति हमारि बिलोकि बड़ि मातु करिअ सोइ आजु।
रामु जाहिं बन राजु तजि होइ सकल सुरकाजु।।11।।

On the other hand, there was continuous play of various musical instruments in the city which was in great celebratory mood. Every one of the citizens were wishing for return of Bharat (who was away on visit to his relatives on the side of his mother); they wanted him to come soon to be able to watch the spectacle of Shri Ram’s coronation and have the best reward for having eyes. There was unprecedented rush on the streets and markets, all were busy asking each other what was the time fixed for the event, when it would be the moment when Brahma, the creator will fulfill our deepest desire (i e Shri Ram becoming the king of Ayodhya). They visualized Shri Ram and Bhagwati Sita sitting together on the golden throne which they thought would bring light of knowledge to their conscious self (when one perceives Ram and Sita in control of his life or puts them in charge of all aspects of life, enlightenment happens). Every one was now eager to see the next morning, the next day but the gods were busy in scheming. The gods were not happy to see Ayodhya in celebratory mood (i e they didn’t want Shri Ram to settle back in Ayodhya), it was like thieves despising the full-moon night. The gods called up on Devi Saraswati and prayed before her and fell at her feet time and again in oblation.

The gods said to Maa Saraswati, “O Mother we are just now in deep trouble which you may see also. You must do something to save the situation. We want Shri Ram to go to jungles to do what we the gods have already begged to be done (the gods had prayed before the Supreme God to kill the demons who had made their lives difficult, Ayodhya was a place where demons never visited hence gods wanted Ram to visit such places where demons were active).”

We have now covered up to Doha 311 of Ayodhya Kand.
