तात कृपा करि कीजिअ सोई। जातें अवध अनाथ न होई।।
मंत्रहि राम उठाइ प्रबोधा। तात धरम मतु तुम्ह सबु सोधा।।
सिबि दधीचि हरिचंद नरेसा। सहे धरम हित कोटि कलेसा।।
रंतिदेव बलि भूप सुजाना। धरमु धरेउ सहि संकट नाना।।
धरमु न दूसर सत्य समाना। आगम निगम पुरान बखाना।।
मैं सोइ धरमु सुलभ करि पावा। तजें तिहूँ पुर अपजसु छावा।।
संभावित कहुँ अपजस लाहू। मरन कोटि सम दारुन दाहू।।
तुम्ह सन तात बहुत का कहऊँ। दिएँ उतरु फिरि पातकु लहऊँ।।
दो0-पितु पद गहि कहि कोटि नति बिनय करब कर जोरि।
चिंता कवनिहु बात कै तात करिअ जनि मोरि।।95।।

We covered up to Doha 95 of Ayodhya Kand in Ramcaharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that when Sumant saw Shri Ram converting His hair in to locks by applying milk of banyan tree, he became upset and gave message of King Dashrath. He lastly requested Shri Ram to consider Ayodhya’s interests on top. Shri Ram in turn told Sumant that Sumant was wise already knew where the crux of Dharma lies and that it can only be upheld by keeping on side of Satya, the truth, as did so many great kings and Munis in the past. Ram said to Sumant that such an occasion is right before Him by chance and should not be missed and wished that Sumant conveys His respects to the king and also that he need not have any worries about His welfare in jungles on any account.

तुम्ह पुनि पितु सम अति हित मोरें। बिनती करउँ तात कर जोरें।।
सब बिधि सोइ करतब्य तुम्हारें। दुख न पाव पितु सोच हमारें।।
सुनि रघुनाथ सचिव संबादू। भयउ सपरिजन बिकल निषादू।।
पुनि कछु लखन कही कटु बानी। प्रभु बरजे बड़ अनुचित जानी।।
सकुचि राम निज सपथ देवाई। लखन सँदेसु कहिअ जनि जाई।।
कह सुमंत्रु पुनि भूप सँदेसू। सहि न सकिहि सिय बिपिन कलेसू।।
जेहि बिधि अवध आव फिरि सीया। सोइ रघुबरहि तुम्हहि करनीया।।
नतरु निपट अवलंब बिहीना। मैं न जिअब जिमि जल बिनु मीना।।
दो0-मइकें ससरें सकल सुख जबहिं जहाँ मनु मान।।
तँह तब रहिहि सुखेन सिय जब लगि बिपति बिहान।।96।।

Shri Ram further told Sumant, “O Taat, I plead before you knowing you as no less interested in my well-being and interest than my own father has for me, you may for my sake commit yourself to do whatever will keep my father happy and ensure that he does not regret my going away.”

The Nishad and other family members of his, listened to what transpired between the minister and Shri Ram and they became very perturbed. Lakshman in the time said some bitter words but Shri Ram checked him promptly finding it very unfair and unwarranted; Shri Ram then obligated Sumant to not repeat what Lakshman had said there in Ayodhya.

Sumantra than began to deliver rest of the king’s message to Shri Ram and said, “Sita would not be able to bear the hardships of the forest-living, he has wanted me and you, O Raghuvar, the superior among Raghus, to do everything possible but in line of propriety to see that Sita at least returns back to Ayodhya. Otherwise, the king has warned, without any support left for him it will not be possible for him to live on similarly as the fishes can’t live out of water (Sita represents Maya who works under command of the Lord and people enjoy living in this illusive world on account of Maya, Dashrath loved Shri Ram too much and he had now gone but Sita had also left so naturally without Mayic influence and without his most love personality who was Shri Ram but really the Supreme Lord, he could not have lived any longer).

“The king has told that at her father’s place as well at the in-law’s place there is every kind of comfort, Sita can live at either of the two places, where ever she pleases, at least till the dark period of troubles gets over and the morning of happiness dawns.”

We have now covered up to Doha 96 of Ayodhya Kand.

Bhavani Shankar Ki Jai!
Shri Jankivallabho Vijayatey!
Sant Samaj ko Pranaam!
Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jai!
