Ramcharit Charcha DCXII

II Shree Guruvey Namah II

 

Jai Shri Ram,

 

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai jai Ram II

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

II Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram II

सखा कही तुम्ह नीकि उपाई। करिअ दैव जौं होइ सहाई।।
मंत्र न यह लछिमन मन भावा। राम बचन सुनि अति दुख पावा।।
नाथ दैव कर कवन भरोसा। सोषिअ सिंधु करिअ मन रोसा।।
कादर मन कहुँ एक अधारा। दैव दैव आलसी पुकारा।।
सुनत बिहसि बोले रघुबीरा। ऐसेहिं करब धरहु मन धीरा।।
अस कहि प्रभु अनुजहि समुझाई। सिंधु समीप गए रघुराई।।
प्रथम प्रनाम कीन्ह सिरु नाई। बैठे पुनि तट दर्भ डसाई।।
जबहिं बिभीषन प्रभु पहिं आए। पाछें रावन दूत पठाए।।
दो0-सकल चरित तिन्ह देखे धरें कपट कपि देह।
प्रभु गुन हृदयँ सराहहिं सरनागत पर नेह।।51।।

We covered up to Doha 50 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Shri Ram, by way of appreciation, told Vibhishan, “Friend, you have spoken of a right way to resolve a problem (of this big magnitude where ecological issues are involved, a silent conversation with mother nature may surely help), I intend do like wise provided such is the providence out there to help us.”

This counsel coming from Vibhishan wasn’t liked by Lakshman and he was upset listening to Shri Ram’s words of approval for such a thing. Lakshman told Shri Ram, “Master, should one rely on providence and fate, can they be relied up on. I think You must dry up the ocean by getting angry in Your heart (You are the real Lord of universe and merely Your being angry will shake up the creation forcing ocean to dry).

“It is for the cowardly and weak to look for help from luck etc, for them it might be the sole consolation; also some who are lazy and inactive by nature have been known to wish and call for luck, it is not for us to wait like this.”

Raghuveer Shri Ram instantly smiled at the sort of reaction coming from Lakshman and said, “We will do as you suggest, just have some patience in your heart.” This is how the Lord placated the anxiety of younger brother and pacified him; Raghuraj Shri Ram then went near the ocean. Shri Ram first bowed down reverentially before the ocean (acknowledging its greatness) and then spread a sheet of grass on the shore and set over it (when someone waits for a while to find a solution for a big problem, the word spreads and those who have some knowledge or expertise get time to contact him; rushing in such matters is not advisable, it may turn those who will be affected eventually in to enemies which is never a desirable thing in far away places).

On the other side, Ravan sent his spies to follow Vibhishan as soon as he left Lanka. These sleuths, disguised as monkeys, watched the going on in Shri Ram’s camp from close quarters and appreciated the virtues of the Lord in their hearts and particularly His love for the shelter-seekers.

We have now covered up to Doha 51 of Sundar Kand.
