II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

त्रिजटा सन बोली कर जोरी। मातु बिपति संगिनि तैं मोरी।।
तजौं देह करु बेगि उपाई। दुसहु बिरहु अब नहिं सहि जाई।।
आनि काठ रचु चिता बनाई। मातु अनल पुनि देहि लगाई।।
सत्य करहि मम प्रीति सयानी। सुनै को श्रवन सूल सम बानी।।
सुनत बचन पद गहि समुझाएसि। प्रभु प्रताप बल सुजसु सुनाएसि।।
निसि न अनल मिल सुनु सुकुमारी। अस कहि सो निज भवन सिधारी।।
कह सीता बिधि भा प्रतिकूला। मिलहि न पावक मिटिहि न सूला।।
देखिअत प्रगट गगन अंगारा। अवनि न आवत एकउ तारा।।
पावकमय ससि स्त्रवत न आगी। मानहुँ मोहि जानि हतभागी।।
सुनहि बिनय मम बिटप असोका। सत्य नाम करु हरु मम सोका।।
नूतन किसलय अनल समाना। देहि अगिनि जनि करहि निदाना।।
देखि परम बिरहाकुल सीता। सो छन कपिहि कलप सम बीता।।
सो0-कपि करि हृदयँ बिचार दीन्हि मुद्रिका डारी तब।
जनु असोक अंगार दीन्हि हरषि उठि कर गहेउ।।12।।

 

We covered up to Doha 12 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Grief stricken Sita joined hands and told Trijata, “O Mother, you have become my companion in these trying times and adverse circumstances. Now help me in shedding life and find some means to do it. The separation from Lord is unbearable for me now hence bring some dry wood and prepare a pier and light it for me to clime over it. In this way prove your affection for and let me prove my love for the Lord, O Wise Lady, who has capacity to hear piercing words (of Ravan).”

Trijita listened to what Sita said, grabbed her feet and then replied, “O Sukumari (Lady of Tender Age), in hours of night it is difficult to find fire,” and left for her own abode without waiting for response (she knew that best way to deal with someone with suicidal wish is to buy time and postpone discussion on issue).

Lamenting over her condition Sita began to talk to herself saying, “Brahma, the creator, seems to have turned hostile to me, in absence of fire I can not put an end to my strife. Up above in sky there are a lot of balls of fire but none of those stars comes down to earth for me. The moon itself is burning but does not spew fire as if it has taken my fate as sealed. Ashoka (name means end of sorrow) Tree, you may at least come forward and steal my grief and justify your name. Your tender leaves bear resemblance to flame, you may therefore be source of fire and provide the solution.”

Hanuman, the monkey sitting on the tree concealed by leaves watched all that was happening there but this moment of Sita’s  acute pain of separation from Lord was equal to an age for him. Hanuman then pondered for a while and dropped the ring given by the Lord which Sita grabbed happily thinking that Ashok Tree had dropped lighted wood heeding to her request.

We have now covered up to Doha 12 of Sundar Kand.
