अस प्रभु छाड़ि भजहिं जे आना। ते नर पसु बिनु पूँछ बिषाना।।
निज जन जानि ताहि अपनावा। प्रभु सुभाव कपि कुल मन भावा।।
पुनि सर्बग्य सर्ब उर बासी। सर्बरूप सब रहित उदासी।।
बोले बचन नीति प्रतिपालक। कारन मनुज दनुज कुल घालक।।
सुनु कपीस लंकापति बीरा। केहि बिधि तरिअ जलधि गंभीरा।।
संकुल मकर उरग झष जाती। अति अगाध दुस्तर सब भाँती।।
कह लंकेस सुनहु रघुनायक। कोटि सिंधु सोषक तव सायक।।
जद्यपि तदपि नीति असि गाई। बिनय करिअ सागर सन जाई।।
दो0-प्रभु तुम्हार कुलगुर जलधि कहिहि उपाय बिचारि।
बिनु प्रयास सागर तरिहि सकल भालु कपि धारि।।50।

We covered up to Doha 49 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Surely those who worship other than such a Lord (as Shri Ram is) are not humans but are like animals who do have tails and horns. That Vibhishan was accepted as His own devotee and servant by the Lord, such kindness as part of His nature was liked by the monkeys.

Omniscient and omnipresent, appearing in all forms but without being only those forms and being totally unconcerned with or uninterested in what happens or doesn’t happen who took an avatar in human form for the destruction of the race of demons as an upholder of Niti (right rules and right path), such Shri Ram, the Lord, once again began to speak, “Listen, O Sugreev, king of monkeys and listen O Vibhishan, king of Lanka, both of you are brave and now is the time to discuss how to get across this deep ocean which is a challenge in itself; this is home to alligators, snakes and various forms of fishes, it’s depth is unfathomable therefore poses every kind of difficulty in crossing over.”

Lankesh Vibhishan suggested by saying, “O Raghunayak, please listen, though Your arrow is capable to dry millions of such oceans yet the prevalent norm calls for going to the ocean itself and ask for means to cross it. Lord, the ocean is Your Kulguru (the family elder)* hence would most willingly tell us a good way to achieve our goal. In this manner our entire army of monkeys and bears will be able to go across the ocean with out much effort.”

(Sagar was an ancestor of Shri Ram, he had dug up the earth which up on getting filled with water came to be known as Saagar (the ocean); here we must appreciate that such natural entities as ocean etc should not be seen as inanimate objects to be dealt with as pleased. Here they should be seen as living systems that must be explored for our needs in a way that would acceptable to them. Vibhishan here proved to be having quality of a good king who cares to preserves environment as first priority.)

We have now covered up to Doha 50 of Sundar Kand.
