लालन जोगु लखन लघु लोने। भे न भाइ अस अहहिं न होने।।
पुरजन प्रिय पितु मातु दुलारे। सिय रघुबरहि प्रानपिआरे।।
मृदु मूरति सुकुमार सुभाऊ। तात बाउ तन लाग न काऊ।।
ते बन सहहिं बिपति सब भाँती। निदरे कोटि कुलिस एहिं छाती।।
राम जनमि जगु कीन्ह उजागर। रूप सील सुख सब गुन सागर।।
पुरजन परिजन गुर पितु माता। राम सुभाउ सबहि सुखदाता।।
बैरिउ राम बड़ाई करहीं। बोलनि मिलनि बिनय मन हरहीं।।
सारद कोटि कोटि सत सेषा। करि न सकहिं प्रभु गुन गन लेखा।।
दो0-सुखस्वरुप रघुबंसमनि मंगल मोद निधान।
ते सोवत कुस डासि महि बिधि गति अति बलवान।।200।।

We covered up to Doha 200 of Ayodhya Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and learned that Bharat while at the spot where Shri Ram had rested for the night near Shrigverpur while on way to forest, expressed his deep anguish about Sita, Shri Ram and Lakshman having to spend night in the open. He as elder brother of Lakshman saw him to be very young to suffer in this way, contrary to being given kid-glove treatment. He thought Shri Ram had brightened up Ayodhya by taking birth there, He being most amiable, very virtuous and quite handsome was the source of all pleasure for the citizens, the Guru and the family members, even His enemies did not despise Him why then He had to suffer such unwelcome fate. Bharat regretted that his heart did not cringe and break in to pieces even after knowing what his dear ones had to suffer (sub-consciously he held himself responsible for it all).

राम सुना दुखु कान न काऊ। जीवनतरु जिमि जोगवइ राऊ।।
पलक नयन फनि मनि जेहि भाँती। जोगवहिं जननि सकल दिन राती।।
ते अब फिरत बिपिन पदचारी। कंद मूल फल फूल अहारी।।
धिग कैकेई अमंगल मूला। भइसि प्रान प्रियतम प्रतिकूला।।
मैं धिग धिग अघ उदधि अभागी। सबु उतपातु भयउ जेहि लागी।।
कुल कलंकु करि सृजेउ बिधाताँ। साइँदोह मोहि कीन्ह कुमाताँ।।
सुनि सप्रेम समुझाव निषादू। नाथ करिअ कत बादि बिषादू।।
राम तुम्हहि प्रिय तुम्ह प्रिय रामहि। यह निरजोसु दोसु बिधि बामहि।।
छं0-बिधि बाम की करनी कठिन जेंहिं मातु कीन्ही बावरी।
तेहि राति पुनि पुनि करहिं प्रभु सादर सरहना रावरी।।
तुलसी न तुम्ह सो राम प्रीतमु कहतु हौं सौहें किएँ।
परिनाम मंगल जानि अपने आनिए धीरजु हिएँ।।
सो0-अंतरजामी रामु सकुच सप्रेम कृपायतन।
चलिअ करिअ बिश्रामु यह बिचारि दृढ़ आनि मन।।201।।

Still thinking of Shri Ram Bharat further told Nishad Guha, “Shri Ram had never heard of any thing sorrowful and He was being nursed and taken care of by the king like tree of his own life i e like one tends carefully to meet all bodily needs of himself to live and enjoy life. Besides the mothers tended him like the eyelids serve the eyes all the time and like a snake defends the Mani over his head all the while, and now He has to roam about in jungle on foot and have meals of stems, roots, and wild fruits and flowers. I must condemn Kaikeyi who is the root cause of such troubling times for Him by causing death to her own dearest one, her husband and turning against the one (i e Shri Ram) whom she loved like her own life at one time. I stand to be doubly accursed for being an ocean of sin and most unfortunate on account of whom really all this disorder and turmoil has taken place. The creator made me exist in this world as blot on family and my own wicked mother did every thing to make me be known as plotter against my own master.”

Nishad Guha listened to everything that Bharat told him with kindness and understanding (he had understood that Bharat was emotionally very disturbed and required a sympathetic ear to pour out his feelings) and said, “O Master, why should be lamenting in this manner, I know it very well that Shri Ram is very dear to you and you are very dear to Shri Ram and while this is the factual position, rest is just the result of Brahma, the creator, having gone adverse.

“It is torturous event in ill-fated course of life that mother had became almost mad and mindless, otherwise, as for Shri Ram, He was all praise for you through out the night he was here.”

Guha lastly told Bharat (which Tulsi, the poet, also endorses fully),”There is none more dear to Shri Ram as you are and I vouch for it myself. The end will be just right and bear all goodness, knowing this you must have patience in your heart.

“Shri Ram knows inner thoughts of every one, so he knows yours too, His congeniality and compassion and gracefulness is beyond doubt hence you may well take rest now while firmly keeping in your mind what I just told you.”

We have now covered up to Doha 201 of Ayodhya Kand.

Bhavani Shankar Ki Jai!

HariOm,
Krishna Khandelwal
