जदपि कहि कपि अति हित बानी। भगति बिबेक बिरति नय सानी।।
बोला बिहसि महा अभिमानी। मिला हमहि कपि गुर बड़ ग्यानी।।
मृत्यु निकट आई खल तोही। लागेसि अधम सिखावन मोही।।
उलटा होइहि कह हनुमाना। मतिभ्रम तोर प्रगट मैं जाना।।
सुनि कपि बचन बहुत खिसिआना। बेगि न हरहुँ मूढ़ कर प्राना।।
सुनत निसाचर मारन धाए। सचिवन्ह सहित बिभीषनु आए।I
नाइ सीस करि बिनय बहूता। नीति बिरोध न मारिअ दूता।।
आन दंड कछु करिअ गोसाँई। सबहीं कहा मंत्र भल भाई।।
सुनत बिहसि बोला दसकंधर। अंग भंग करि पठइअ बंदर।।
दो-कपि कें ममता पूँछ पर सबहि कहउँ समुझाइ।
तेल बोरि पट बाँधि पुनि पावक देहु लगाइ।।24।।

We covered up to Doha 23 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this further to it.

Though Hanuman, the monkey, delivered Ravan some piece of very beneficial and just advice which contained lessons in Bhakti, Vivek (wisdom and discretion) and Virati (dispassion) yet Ravan, the one who happened to be totally egoistic and under spell of very heightened arrogance, announced laughingly, “Oh, i find before me a money as a very enlightened Guru,” and then told Hanuman, “O Rascal, seems your death has come very near to you that you, a lowly creature, has undertaken to sermonize me.” To this Hanuman replied by saying, “the reverse might happen, i clearly see you deluded in mind.”

Listening to words of the monkey (Hanuman), Ravan became greatly annoyed and peeved, and shouted, “why not someone end the life of this fool.” The demons in court of Ravan rushed to kill him but stopped seeing Vibhishan making an entry at that precise moment. Vibhishan bowed his head before Ravan and beseeched him much that an envoy should not be killed for it will be against the state’s policy and diplomatic norm; he said, “O Great Master, better punish him in some more suitable manner.” Vibhishan’s opinion was backed by many and Ravan too agreeably laughed and said, “Alright, maim and disfigure the monkey and send him back.

“Let all understand that a monkey has special attachment to its tail hence wrap it in cloth drenched in oil and then put fire to it.”

(Hanuman felt obliged within and thought that it was only true that as a monkey he was very much attached to his tail and Ravan has only devised to end that attachment too; he knew attachment to any thing is only bad.)

We have now covered up to Doha 24 of Sundar Kand.
