लंका निसिचर निकर निवासा। इहाँ कहाँ सज्जन कर बासा।।
मन महुँ तरक करै कपि लागा। तेहीं समय बिभीषनु जागा।।
राम राम तेहिं सुमिरन कीन्हा। हृदयँ हरष कपि सज्जन चीन्हा।।
एहि सन हठि करिहउँ पहिचानी। साधु ते होइ न कारज हानी।।
बिप्र रुप धरि बचन सुनाए। सुनत बिभीषण उठि तहँ आए।।
करि प्रनाम पूँछी कुसलाई। बिप्र कहहु निज कथा बुझाई।।
की तुम्ह हरि दासन्ह महँ कोई। मोरें हृदय प्रीति अति होई।।
की तुम्ह रामु दीन अनुरागी। आयहु मोहि करन बड़भागी।।
दो0-तब हनुमंत कही सब राम कथा निज नाम।
सुनत जुगल तन पुलक मन मगन सुमिरि गुन ग्राम।।6।।

We covered up to Doha 6 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Having seen a mansion which had a Lord’s temple too, Hanuman thought that Lanka is a place occupied by only the night roaming demons, how then it is possible for a gentleman to have a place to stay. While the monkey was busy thinking about the possibility applying different logic within his mind, right then Vibhishan got up from his sleep. The first thing he did was to remember the Lord uttering Ram..Ram.. . This delighted the heart of monkey and he could now have conviction that Vibhishan was surely a noble soul (as otherwise it is impossible for people with corrupted minds to remember the Lord even before they are fully awake, uttering Ram’s name is this way is only possible for those who have been regularly doing it most of the time). “I must now get acquainted whatever way be it possible; a Sadhu (gentle person with God orientation) does no harm to any one’s cause,” this is how Hanuman resolved and took form of a Vipra (learned brahmin).  He then sought attention of Vibhishan speaking courtesies; when Vibhishan noticed some one speak, he came to look for him and did Pranam (act of obeisance) first. Vibhishan then asked Hanuman’s welfare (this is how a noble person deals with an stranger without a prejudiced opinion against him) and asked, “O Vipra, tell me more about yourself in detail and what brings you here; my heart leans towards you, are you one of the servants of Lord Hari. Or you are that Ram Himself who is known to be kind towards the helpless and loves them, so have come here simply for me too be counted among the most fortunate.”

After interaction in such way with Vibhishan, Hanuman told his name and the entire story (Katha) of Shri Ram; this made both, the teller and the listener, become bodily thrilled and mentally relaxed and overjoyed as they reflected on the host of virtues of Shri Ram (this is the common refrain when two devotees meet).

We have now covered up to Doha 6 of Sundar Kand.
