तात राम नहिं नर भूपाला। भुवनेस्वर कालहु कर काला।।
ब्रह्म अनामय अज भगवंता। ब्यापक अजित अनादि अनंता।।
गो द्विज धेनु देव हितकारी। कृपासिंधु मानुष तनुधारी।।
जन रंजन भंजन खल ब्राता। बेद धर्म रच्छक सुनु भ्राता।।
ताहि बयरु तजि नाइअ माथा। प्रनतारति भंजन रघुनाथा।।
देहु नाथ प्रभु कहुँ बैदेही। भजहु राम बिनु हेतु सनेही।।
सरन गएँ प्रभु ताहु न त्यागा। बिस्व द्रोह कृत अघ जेहि लागा।।
जासु नाम त्रय ताप नसावन। सोइ प्रभु प्रगट समुझु जियँ रावन।।
दो0-बार बार पद लागउँ बिनय करउँ दससीस।
परिहरि मान मोह मद भजहु कोसलाधीस।।39(क)।।
मुनि पुलस्ति निज सिष्य सन कहि पठई यह बात।
तुरत सो मैं प्रभु सन कही पाइ सुअवसरु तात।।39(ख)।।

We covered up to Doha 38 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Vibhishan further told Ravan, “O Brother, Ram is not just a man as he appears nor is just a satrap; He is the Lord of universe and more than that he is the one who is master of time itself, the time might last but he remains. He is the Brahman who has no afflictions or weakness of any kind, He is the same unborn person whom we know as God; so therefore He pervades all over, is unwinnable, has no beginning or an end. The real purpose of His coming as avatar on earth in the form of a human is to save the earth itself (who once prayed taking form a cow to be protected from excesses of the wicked), to save also the Brahmins, the cows, and the gods and ensure their welfare and why not He is the ocean of mercy (and therefore can never remain unconcerned regarding the woes of all those mentioned earlier).

“As Ram He delights people and particularly His devotees and is always ready to destroy the spell of the immoral and perverse. Know Him to be savior of the spirit of Vedas and the Dharma enshrined in them, My Dear Brother. You must drop the attitude of animosity towards Him and must bow down to Him; He as Raghunath, the Superior one among Raghus, always removes the woes and troubles of those who take refuse under Him.

“O Master, send back Vaidehi Sita to her Lord and worship Shri Ram who is affectionate towards all without expectations. Not only this He is such a Lord who never shuns a person who comes to take shelter under Him even if he be a big sinner like a tormentor of masses. Whose name itself is enough to destroy afflictions of all three type (of body, of mind and related to environment), the same Lord has manifested Himself as Ram, understand this thoroughly, O Ravan (here Vibhishan did not mince words to convey to Ravan what Vibhishan thought really was i e the one at the root of all troubles of all in those times).”

Vibhishan then applied balm to the hurt ego of Ravan thinking that angered too much he might not take the advice by politely saying, “O Dashsheesh Ravan, I am ready to bow down at your feet time and again and tell you most humbly that you must get over your vanity, your stupor and delusions and pray to Shri Ram, the Lord of Kaushala (Vibhishan practically demonstrated before Ravan that though he knew his reality but was still bowing down to him subsiding his own ego, an act of a well wisher).

“Muni Pulatsya (our grand sire), had conveyed this to me through one of his disciples and I have told the same message promptly to you, My Master, finding an opportune moment (Vibhishan acted as a gentleman by disowning to be an author of this message of wisdom though what he said was his own view and belief too, and also for Ravan could reject it out rightly taking it be an advice from a junior and a younger relative. Such thinking is sign of a real wellwisher).”

We have now covered up to Doha 39 of Sundar Kand.
