केवट कीन्हि बहुत सेवकाई। सो जामिनि सिंगरौर गवाँई।।
होत प्रात बट छीरु मगावा। जटा मुकुट निज सीस बनावा।।
राम सखाँ तब नाव मगाई। प्रिया चढ़ाइ चढ़े रघुराई।।
लखन बान धनु धरे बनाई। आपु चढ़े प्रभु आयसु पाई।।
बिकल बिलोकि मोहि रघुबीरा। बोले मधुर बचन धरि धीरा।।
तात प्रनामु तात सन कहेहु। बार बार पद पंकज गहेहू।।
करबि पायँ परि बिनय बहोरी। तात करिअ जनि चिंता मोरी।।
बन मग मंगल कुसल हमारें। कृपा अनुग्रह पुन्य तुम्हारें।।
छं0- तुम्हरे अनुग्रह तात कानन जात सब सुखु पाइहौं।
प्रतिपालि आयसु कुसल देखन पाय पुनि फिरि आइहौं।।
जननीं सकल परितोषि परि परि पायँ करि बिनती घनी।
तुलसी करेहु सोइ जतनु जेहिं कुसली रहहिं कोसल धनी।।
सो0-गुर सन कहब सँदेसु बार बार पद पदुम गहि।
करब सोइ उपदेसु जेहिं न सोच मोहि अवधपति।।151।।

We covered up to Doha 151 of Ayodhya Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that Sumantra gave King Dashrath some details of how Shri Ram and Lakshman fared while on their journey in to the jungles. He later began to tell the message of Shri Ram that Shri Ram asked him to first give you His best regards and than to tell that He would be happy and perfectly safe while on way to jungles, all due to your blessings and noble deeds. Sumantra further said that He also told to convey that after carrying out the your command, He will safely return to have a look at your feet and serve. Sumantra told the that this apart Shri Ram had also asked to console and satisfy the mothers in every way regarding His welfare and lastly to advise Guru Vashishtth to give such sermons that will only mollify you and alleviate your concerns for Him.

पुरजन परिजन सकल निहोरी। तात सुनाएहु बिनती मोरी।।
सोइ सब भाँति मोर हितकारी। जातें रह नरनाहु सुखारी।।
कहब सँदेसु भरत के आएँ। नीति न तजिअ राजपदु पाएँ।।
पालेहु प्रजहि करम मन बानी। सेएहु मातु सकल सम जानी।।
ओर निबाहेहु भायप भाई। करि पितु मातु सुजन सेवकाई।।
तात भाँति तेहि राखब राऊ। सोच मोर जेहिं करै न काऊ।।
लखन कहे कछु बचन कठोरा। बरजि राम पुनि मोहि निहोरा।।
बार बार निज सपथ देवाई। कहबि न तात लखन लरिकाई।।
दो0-कहि प्रनाम कछु कहन लिय सिय भइ सिथिल सनेह।
थकित बचन लोचन सजल पुलक पल्लवित देह।।152।।

Sumantra told the rest of the message of Shri Ram for the king thus, “Shri Ram asked me to decently summon all the citizen and family members to convey unto them His humble request that they would only be helping Him and would ensure His own welfare by doing all that would keep their lord and His father happy. Shri Ram also wished me to advise Bharat on His behalf that after one is enthroned and holds the position of a king, he must not shun to follow the right policies and probity in any circumstance; he must nurse and nurture the subjects with all his efforts in practice, in commands and with dedication. He further wished me to tell Bharat that all mothers need be served knowing them as equally worthy of his attention. Shri Ram has asked Bharat to be a good brother of His by serving the father, the mothers and the saintly in such way that they don’t miss Him or have any lesser satisfaction in His absence.

“Lakshman however agitatingly said some harsh words but Shri Ram first stopped him from uttering such words and then besought me to refrain from saying a word of it to you and pressed me to vow for it for His own sake saying that it must be forgotten as some act of childishness on his part and should find no mention later.

“Sita also has sent her special regards and respects to you but before she could speak some thing she was overtaken by emotions and was at loss of words on that account, her eyes were tearful and was bodily thrilled to have had your memories back.”

(We see here that Shri Ram was aware that words can make and mar peace of somebody at a distance and there was in any case no substance in what Lakshman was telling hence he came forwards and ensured that his words don’t reverberate and complicate a delicate situation. Sumnatra also displayed his sense of duty by conveying all that he had known and seen but without unnecessarily repeating the words of Lakshman and conveyed to the king nicely that he may not want him to tell Lakshman’s words and put him in difficulty as he had committed to Shri Ram to not to. We can well see how a minister beautifully carried out his duty towards the king and the state and how a delicate situation was taken care of.)

We have now covered up to Doha 152 of Ayodhya Kand.

Bhavani Shankar ki Jai!
Shri Jankivallabho Vijayatey!
Sant Samaj Ko Pranam!
Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jai!
