बार बार प्रभु चहइ उठावा। प्रेम मगन तेहि उठब न भावा।।
प्रभु कर पंकज कपि कें सीसा। सुमिरि सो दसा मगन गौरीसा।।
सावधान मन करि पुनि संकर। लागे कहन कथा अति सुंदर।।
कपि उठाइ प्रभु हृदयँ लगावा। कर गहि परम निकट बैठावा।।
कहु कपि रावन पालित लंका। केहि बिधि दहेउ दुर्ग अति बंका।।
प्रभु प्रसन्न जाना हनुमाना। बोला बचन बिगत अभिमाना।।
साखामृग के बड़ि मनुसाई। साखा तें साखा पर जाई।।
नाघि सिंधु हाटकपुर जारा। निसिचर गन बिधि बिपिन उजारा।
सो सब तव प्रताप रघुराई। नाथ न कछू मोरि प्रभुताई।।
दो0- ता कहुँ प्रभु कछु अगम नहिं जा पर तुम्ह अनुकुल।
तब प्रभावँ बड़वानलहिं जारि सकइ खलु तूल।।33।।

We covered up to Doha 32 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Lord (Shri Ram) attempted to lift up Hanuman time and again but Hanuman had been totally absorbed in love for the Lord holding Lord’s feet in his hands that he didn’t like to be lifted; Lord’s lotus hands could only rest on head of the monkey; Shankar, the Lord of Gauri, who had been telling the story of Ram also got lost for a while visualizing the interesting scene that he was describing. Lord Shankar then brought his mind back to attention to narrate the story further and resumed telling the interesting and beautiful story of Ram to Parvati.

Ultimately, the Lord lifted up the monkey and took him in close embrace. Holding hand of Hanuman, Shri Ram made him sit very close to Himself (devotees like Hanuman have a right to remain close to the Lord without any gap between them). Now Shri Ram wanted to know about the happenings back in Lanka, therefore asked, “O Monkey, Lanka is under protection of Ravan himself, how could you burn down the impregnable and strong fort there.”

Hanuman, the monkey, could now make out that the Lord was pleased and happy but taking care that his answer might show some trace of arrogance hence carefully replied,”the only valor a monkey can claim lies in his capacity to jump from  one branch of a tree to another. Jumping across the sea, i could burn down the golden city and later killed the army of demons and as a fall out the orchard got spoiled; it is all due to Your glorious might and influence, O Raghuraj Shri Ram. Master, none of my own abilities or competence is at the back of it.

“The fact of the matter is that, O Lord, nothing is beyond achieving for a one who is favored by You; it is Your glory only that a shred of cotton can burn a raging forest fire (back in Lanka the same thing had happened, the ignited cotton shreds tied to tail of Hanuman had been the cause of the big fire that engulfed Lanka).”

(Hanuman has presented a good example of not letting arrogance hit the head even after an achievement that can’t have a parallel.)

We have now covered up to Doha 33 of Sundar Kand.
