सुनहु पवनसुत रहनि हमारी। जिमि दसनन्हि महुँ जीभ बिचारी।।
तात कबहुँ मोहि जानि अनाथा। करिहहिं कृपा भानुकुल नाथा।।
तामस तनु कछु साधन नाहीं। प्रीति न पद सरोज मन माहीं।।
अब मोहि भा भरोस हनुमंता। बिनु हरिकृपा मिलहिं नहिं संता।।
जौ रघुबीर अनुग्रह कीन्हा। तौ तुम्ह मोहि दरसु हठि दीन्हा।।
सुनहु बिभीषन प्रभु कै रीती। करहिं सदा सेवक पर प्रीती।।
कहहु कवन मैं परम कुलीना। कपि चंचल सबहीं बिधि हीना।।
प्रात लेइ जो नाम हमारा। तेहि दिन ताहि न मिलै अहारा।।
दो0-अस मैं अधम सखा सुनु मोहू पर रघुबीर।
कीन्ही कृपा सुमिरि गुन भरे बिलोचन नीर।।7।।

Now it was turn of Vibhishan to pour his heart out before a Bhakta of the Lord, “O Pawansut, listen what is my plight, its like poor tongue held between teeth (every moment it fears being crushed and cut by teeth i e Vibhishan lived among demons fearing trouble for himself all the time). O Taat , would the Guardian of the Sun Dynasty Shri Ram, ever be gracious and merciful towards me knowing me to be helpless and without a master genuinely interested in my welfare. I know that I have a body which has enough of Tamas (the lower tendencies because I have been born in family of demons) and further more I do not have luxury of right means that may lift me up (due to the constrain of place I have to reside in). I also can’t validly claim to be having affection for the lotus feet of Him (here Vibhishan displayed his humility, a very helpful quality in a seeker though he had already developed devotion towards the feet of Shri Ram). However, Hanuman, I have now some confidence because it is the only the grace behind the meeting with a saint in the life of an individual; just see that you have arrived here as His messenger and have contacted me of your own accord as a token of His grace.”

Hanuman then reassured Vibhishan saying, “Listen, O Vibhishan, truly its the practice of the Lord, He is ever inclined towards His servant and loves him. If you think low on account of your family or lineage, I am also not a claimant of being born in a high family, after all I am too just a monkey, always playful and fickle in mind and without knowledge about the right methods that would lead to Him. It is popularly believed that who ever has thought of us in the mornings goes without food for the whole day (i e he loses concentration and meets failure in his endeavors as we have no good virtues to influence him).

“So listen, O Friend, I am such a hopeless and worthless person yet Raghuveer Shri Ram showered graces on me.” Concluding with these word, Hanuman got reminded of the virtues of Shri Ram and tears welled up in his eyes.

(The message is that status, circumstances and training etc have but little role, the real thing is to have love for the feet of the Lord and contemplate over His virtues while keeping faith; eventually He accepts, loves and does every thing to improve the condition of devotee.)

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