रघुपति चित्रकूट बसि नाना। चरित किए श्रुति सुधा समाना।।
बहुरि राम अस मन अनुमाना। होइहि भीर सबहिं मोहि जाना।।
सकल मुनिन्ह सन बिदा कराई। सीता सहित चले द्वौ भाई।।
अत्रि के आश्रम जब प्रभु गयऊ। सुनत महामुनि हरषित भयऊ।।
पुलकित गात अत्रि उठि धाए। देखि रामु आतुर चलि आए।।
करत दंडवत मुनि उर लाए। प्रेम बारि द्वौ जन अन्हवाए।।
देखि राम छबि नयन जुड़ाने। सादर निज आश्रम तब आने।।
करि पूजा कहि बचन सुहाए। दिए मूल फल प्रभु मन भाए।।
सो0-प्रभु आसन आसीन भरि लोचन सोभा निरखि।
मुनिबर परम प्रबीन जोरि पानि अस्तुति करत।।3।।

 

This is further to Doha 2 of Aranya Kand covered in the last post. Raghupati Shri Ram while staying at the mount Chitrakoot performed many interesting acts and displayed many virtuous aspects of His life in avatar form and listening to those is like nectar being poured in ears. Shri Ram then thought that since all those who had come in His contact now had an inkling about His being none other than the Lord of Universe and this might lead to many more coming there and crowding the place. He therefore took formal leave of the Munis who had their ashrams there and the two brothers moved from there along with Sita.

 

First ashram that Shri Ram visited was of Attri Muni, this made the great Muni very happy. While Muni rushed, with his body thrilled at His sight, to receive Him from one side, Shri Ram also seeing Muni coming to greet Him, eagerly came forward Himself from the other side and prostrated in front of the Muni. He  was promptly lifted by Muni and brought near his heart. The tears of love flowed from eyes of both and bathed each other.

 

Muni’s eyes felt great sense of relief and comfort after seeing the glorious form of Shri Ram. Muni then respectfully took Shri Ram inside his own quarter in the ashram. There he performed Puja to welcome Shri Ram and spoke some very pleasing words. Then Muni offered some roots and fruits to Shri Ram which were liked by Shri Ram. Muni then had an eyeful look at the Lord, now seated, and patiently enjoyed His beauty and aura around. Then the very wise and thoroughly learned Muni joined his palms and began to praise the Lord by recounting His virtues.

 

(The Lord visits those even without an invitation who lead a pious life, study scriptures and wisely apply mind in understanding virtues of the Lord. Such people wholeheartedly love and respect the Lord and are loved and respected by the Lord equally.)

 

We have now covered up to Doha 3 of Aranya Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas.
