घन घमंड नभ गरजत घोरा। प्रिया हीन डरपत मन मोरा।।
दामिनि दमक रह न घन माहीं। खल कै प्रीति जथा थिर नाहीं।।
बरषहिं जलद भूमि निअराएँ। जथा नवहिं बुध बिद्या पाएँ।।
बूँद अघात सहहिं गिरि कैंसें । खल के बचन संत सह जैसें।।
छुद्र नदीं भरि चलीं तोराई। जस थोरेहुँ धन खल इतराई।।
भूमि परत भा ढाबर पानी। जनु जीवहि माया लपटानी।।
समिटि समिटि जल भरहिं तलावा। जिमि सदगुन सज्जन पहिं आवा।।
सरिता जल जलनिधि महुँ जाई। होई अचल जिमि जिव हरि पाई।।
दो0- हरित भूमि तृन संकुल समुझि परहिं नहिं पंथ।
जिमि पाखंड बाद तें गुप्त होहिं सदग्रंथ।।14।।

We covered up to Doha 13 of Kishkindha Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this further to it.

Shri Ram began to describe the rainy season in its various aspects to Lakshman, equating them with various emotions and various other useful principles; He said, “The clouds are thundering big and very arrogantl; this is making my heart cringe in absence of my darling (Sita). The lightening sparks in cloud appear and disappear fast like the affection of a villainous character as per his mood and interest.

“The water bearing clouds bow down and come near earth like the intelligent noble people become humbler when they get learned and educated.

“The hill tops bear the impact of rain drops as happily as Sadhus take the word of the vile and uncultured person, without a trace of irritation.

“In this season the small rivulets overflow quickly as a small minded greedy person behaves abstrusely when he begets just a little more wealth.

“The clean water dropping from above gets muddied as soon as it comes in contact with earth; its like Jeevas getting mired in Maya as soon as they take birth on earth.

“The water coming down from heavens flows down to fill the ponds like good qualities and desirable virtues come to be adopted by the simple and saintly people.

“The river water rushes down to get merged in the ocean water as it final resting place; in the same way as the Jeevas get in to their restful state after attaining nearness to Lord Hari.

“The overgrowth of grass covers the earth in this season making it difficult to find the tracks leading to the desired place like when the holy books of substance and worth disappear when the sectarian and pseudo philosophies abound in a society.”

We have now covered up to Doha 14 of Kishkindha Kand.
