मुनि पद कमल नाइ करि सीसा। चले बनहि सुर नर मुनि ईसा।।
आगे राम अनुज पुनि पाछें। मुनि बर बेष बने अति काछें।।
उमय बीच श्री सोहइ कैसी। ब्रह्म जीव बिच माया जैसी।।
सरिता बन गिरि अवघट घाटा। पति पहिचानी देहिं बर बाटा।।
जहँ जहँ जाहि देव रघुराया। करहिं मेध तहँ तहँ नभ छाया।।
मिला असुर बिराध मग जाता। आवतहीं रघुवीर निपाता।।
तुरतहिं रुचिर रूप तेहिं पावा। देखि दुखी निज धाम पठावा।।
पुनि आए जहँ मुनि सरभंगा। सुंदर अनुज जानकी संगा।।
दो0-देखी राम मुख पंकज मुनिबर लोचन भृंग।
सादर पान करत अति धन्य जन्म सरभंग।।7।।

 

This is further to Doha 6 of Aranya Kand in Ramcharit Mansas of Tulsidas which we covered in the last post.

The Lord of gods, of Munis and of ordinary people left the place after bowing down at the lotus feet of Muni Attri. Shri Ram was ahead of His younger brother Lakshman, both attractively dressed in garb of Munis, and Sita referred here as Shree (the goddess of riches), in between the two, looked poised like Maya between the Jeeva and Brahman (the connection between Brahman and Jeeva is through Maya and this Maya is very dear to Lord and is to be respected by Jeevas too, Jeeva gets distracted by the influence of Maya only when he doesn’t have his attention centered on Brahman).

In their way came rivers, forests, hills and deep valleys which let them pass with ease because they had recognized that Shri Ram was their Lord only. The clouds provided protection from sun where ever Shri Ram went. On the way a demon known a Viradh appeared whom Shri Ram instantly knocked down but he assumed his original beautiful form as a result and was grieved that he was leading a cursed life so Shri Ram sent him to his own abode (Viradh was divine creature but was cursed to live in forest and could not be killed by use of weapons).

Shri Ram, accompanied by younger brother and Sita, then reached where Muni Sharbhang had been camping; Muni Sharbhang turned to look at Shri Ram’s lotus like face with his eyes that were now acting like bees and were drinking the beauty of His face with great respect and attention, this was the moment when Sharbhang received the best reward for being born.

We have now covered up to Doha 7 of Aranya Kand.
