गुनातीत सचराचर स्वामी। राम उमा सब अंतरजामी।।
कामिन्ह कै दीनता देखाई। धीरन्ह कें मन बिरति दृढ़ाई।।
क्रोध मनोज लोभ मद माया। छूटहिं सकल राम कीं दाया।।
सो नर इंद्रजाल नहिं भूला। जा पर होइ सो नट अनुकूला।।
उमा कहउँ मैं अनुभव अपना। सत हरि भजनु जगत सब सपना।।
पुनि प्रभु गए सरोबर तीरा। पंपा नाम सुभग गंभीरा।।
संत हृदय जस निर्मल बारी। बाँधे घाट मनोहर चारी।।
जहँ तहँ पिअहिं बिबिध मृग नीरा। जनु उदार गृह जाचक भीरा।।
दो0-पुरइनि सबन ओट जल बेगि न पाइअ मर्म।
मायाछन्न न देखिऐ जैसे निर्गुन ब्रह्म।।39(क)।।
सुखि मीन सब एकरस अति अगाध जल माहिं।
जथा धर्मसीलन्ह के दिन सुख संजुत जाहिं।।39(ख)।।

We covered up to Doha 38 of Aranya Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Lord Shiv tells Uma, “Ram, Lord of all the beings, is basically beyond the Gunas (modes) and is omniscient, He only brought to light the kind of weakness the lustful people suffer from; By this He also reinforced the firmness in hearts of balanced and courageous people who do not fall prey to such weaknesses. Anger, desire, greed, intemperance and influence of Maya are only possible to be defeated and done away with when Shri Ram helps one with His grace. The one who has the patronage of the master of the tricky game naturally remains unaffected by the delusive impact of it (i e Master of Maya, the Supreme Lord only can save from falling prey to it).

“Uma, I would tell you what I have learned through my own experience and that is that the whole visible and experienced world is nothing more than a dream while to remain centered on the Lord by remembering Him and praising Him leads to understanding of the essence behind it all.”

The Lord reached the shores of the great lake Pumpasar that had depth as well as purity and beauty. Its water was as pure as the heart of a saint i e absolutely transparent with out any floating dirt. It had beautiful steps on all four sides to reach its water and thus facilitated many kinds of animals drank its water crowding it like the beggars thronging the gate of a generous person.

The lake was concealed behind thick vegetation and therefore it was difficult to know of its existence and worth, similar to the difficulty is identifying Nirgun Brahman, the attributeless Lord, behind the cover of Maya (even though it only is the cause behind the whole gamut of world that is enjoyed through senses).

In the deep water of the lake all the fishes enjoyed pleasures of similar kind (as the water there had no turbulence just like those who follow their Dharma (prescribed duties and religious practices) live through days after days with comfort and enjoyment (as such practices keep them away from problems in the mundane world and also in the realm of spirituality).

We have now covered up to Doha 39 of Aranya Kand.
