कहेउ राम बियोग तव सीता। मो कहुँ सकल भए बिपरीता।।
नव तरु किसलय मनहुँ कृसानू। कालनिसा सम निसि ससि भानू।।
कुबलय बिपिन कुंत बन सरिसा। बारिद तपत तेल जनु बरिसा।।
जे हित रहे करत तेइ पीरा। उरग स्वास सम त्रिबिध समीरा।।
कहेहू तें कछु दुख घटि होई। काहि कहौं यह जान न कोई।।
तत्व प्रेम कर मम अरु तोरा। जानत प्रिया एकु मनु मोरा।।
सो मनु सदा रहत तोहि पाहीं। जानु प्रीति रसु एतेनहि माहीं।।
प्रभु संदेसु सुनत बैदेही। मगन प्रेम तन सुधि नहिं तेही।।
कह कपि हृदयँ धीर धरु माता। सुमिरु राम सेवक सुखदाता।।
उर आनहु रघुपति प्रभुताई। सुनि मम बचन तजहु कदराई।।
दो0-निसिचर निकर पतंग सम रघुपति बान कृसानु।
जननी हृदयँ धीर धरु जरे निसाचर जानु।।15।।

We covered up to Doha 14 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Hanuman now began to deliver message of Shri Ram to Sita in the words of the Lord Himself; the verbatim message of Lord Shri Ram being, “In your absence Sita, all have become adverse to me. The tender leaves of young trees in the forest are like flames of fire; the nights are like the never ending and dark night of death where the moon sizzles like sun. The spread of lotuses in the forest is thorny and the clouds seem to spray heated oil when they rain. All that was comforting and pleasing has become torturous; the cool, fragrant and gently blowing air feels like hissing of a snake. It is right that one’s own pain and suffering gets diluted when made known to another but I am at a loss to find someone whom I can tell my miseries (of separation from you).

“The fact of the matter is that the extent and substance of love between you and me is only appreciated by my heart and mind (i e the reality of relationship and oneness between the Lord and the Maya that works for and under instruction of the Lord remaining totally attached to Him and drawing power from Him is difficult to be known by anyone as it is beyond description and beyond mind and intellect). That heart of mine is now with you all the time and you may therefore better enjoy and appreciate the essential flavor of the affection between us.”

As soon as Vaidehi Janki listened to the message of the Lord, she became totally engrossed and enveloped by the feeling of love and lost all body related sense. At this stage Hanuman, the monkey, asked Mother Sita,”O Mother, be patient and confident and just remember Shri Ram, the one who always gives hope and comfort to His servants and devotees. Realize and think of the greatness and strength of the Master. My words should make you lose all hopelessness and cowardice.

“The numerous demons are just like flies and insects while the arrows of Raghupati Shri Ram are like raging fire; now be assured and consider all of them burned and finished.”

(Here we may appreciate that the message of Shri Ram transported Sita in another world but even Hanuman for moment failed to appreciate that and worried as if Sita was displaying helplessness by being nervous and wished to comfort and reassure her. This indicates that the Maya and the Lord have a relationship that is hard to understand, even for the avatars of the gods.)

We have now covered up to Doha 15 of Sundar Kand.

Bhavani Shankar ki jai!
Shri Jankivallabho Vijayatey!
Pawansut Hanuman Ki Jai!
Sant Samaj Ko Pranam!
Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jai!
