मन संतोष सुनत कपि बानी। भगति प्रताप तेज बल सानी।।
आसिष दीन्हि रामप्रिय जाना। होहु तात बल सील निधाना।।
अजर अमर गुननिधि सुत होहू। करहुँ बहुत रघुनायक छोहू।।
करहुँ कृपा प्रभु अस सुनि काना। निर्भर प्रेम मगन हनुमाना।।
बार बार नाएसि पद सीसा। बोला बचन जोरि कर कीसा।।
अब कृतकृत्य भयउँ मैं माता। आसिष तव अमोघ बिख्याता।।
सुनहु मातु मोहि अतिसय भूखा। लागि देखि सुंदर फल रूखा।।
सुनु सुत करहिं बिपिन रखवारी। परम सुभट रजनीचर भारी।।
तिन्ह कर भय माता मोहि नाहीं। जौं तुम्ह सुख मानहु मन माहीं।।
दो0-देखि बुद्धि बल निपुन कपि कहेउ जानकीं जाहु।
रघुपति चरन हृदयँ धरि तात मधुर फल खाहु।।17।।

We covered up to Doha 16 of Sundar kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Sita now was fully satisfied after listening to monkey’s speech which was laced with Bhakti for the Lord and mentioned His magnanimity, glory and power; she gave her blessings to Hanuman now fully aware that he was most dear to Ram, the Lord and said, “O Taat, may you posses a lot of strength and be very virtuous. O Son, may you become indestructible and immortal besides having host of good qualities and may the leader of Raghus, Shri Ram, have immense affection for you and shower graces on you.”

As soon as Hanuman listened to Sita speak the words “May you haves graces of Lord showered on you”, he became totally dependent on Lord whatever be the circumstances and lost in enjoying His love for himself. Hanuman, the monkey then put his head down at the feet of Sita time and again and spoke with folded hands, “O Mother, what I desired ever to achieve in life is now granted to me as your blessings never ever are found to be inadequate or failing.

“But, O Mother, i must tell you also that i am feeling hungry in a big way right now as i am seeing beautiful fruit hanging on the trees around (here Hanuman indicates that even the greatest of Bhaktas who mainly have hunger for spirituality, have the need to feed the body too).”

Sita then replied by saying, “O Son, the demonic soldiers of immense strength are guarding this garden of fruits (here Sita did not say that the fruits or trees belonged to the demons establishing the principle that natural resources are to be used by the needy and if someone lays claim over them it is to be resisted and revolted against).”

Hanuman took the cue and told, “O Mother, I don’t have any fear of them, if you (as the real provider of all) feel pleased within.”

Janki Sita, observing the wisdom, strength and the expertise of Hanuman, lastly told him, “O Taat, go and enjoy the sweetness of fruits but be aware to have the attention fixed at the feet of Raghupati Shri Ram in your heart (indicating that in fact its the Lord who is the real provider).”

We have now covered up to Doha 17 of Sundar Kand.

Bhavani Shankar ki Jai!

HariOm,
