सैल बिसाल आनि कपि देहीं। कंदुक इव नल नील ते लेहीं।।
देखि सेतु अति सुंदर रचना। बिहसि कृपानिधि बोले बचना।।
परम रम्य उत्तम यह धरनी। महिमा अमित जाइ नहिं बरनी।।
करिहउँ इहाँ संभु थापना। मोरे हृदयँ परम कलपना।।
सुनि कपीस बहु दूत पठाए। मुनिबर सकल बोलि लै आए।।
लिंग थापि बिधिवत करि पूजा। सिव समान प्रिय मोहि न दूजा।।
सिव द्रोही मम भगत कहावा। सो नर सपनेहुँ मोहि न पावा।।
संकर बिमुख भगति चह मोरी। सो नारकी मूढ़ मति थोरी।।
दो0-संकर प्रिय मम द्रोही सिव द्रोही मम दास।
ते नर करहि कलप भरि धोर नरक महुँ बास।।2।।

We covered up to Doha 1 of Lanka Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

The monkeys and bears were now engaged in the job entrusted to them and were bringing parts of large hills which Nal and Neel handled like balls in a game. The most merciful Lord watched the beautiful bridge getting constructed in an interesting manner and spoke with smile on his face, “This place is very captivating and is special, it has immense glory which is difficult to be entirely told. I want ritualistically establish a symbol of Lord Shiv i e Shiv Linga as it happens to be my foremost desire at this moment.

When Sugreev, the king of monkeys, came to know of the desire of the Lord, he sent emissaries in different directions to invite all the Munis to partake in the event. Shri Ram then put a Shiv-Linga in place and went on to worship it in the prescribed manner and said, “None is as dear to me as Lord Shiv; if someone has enmity towards him and proclaims to be my devotee, such a person would never ever reach me even in dreams. Anyone who is opposed to Lord Shankar and wishes to achieve my Bhakti, by whatever means, does in fact walk towards hell and is a fool with little intelligence or wisdom.

“All those who love Shiv and seek his favor while do things that displease and annoy me and vice versa, such people in fact reside in dreadful hell only throughout the Kalpa (the entire time cycle) i e get reborn every time they die and stay in hell in the intervening period (for their faith without an idea of serving me as lord of Universe has no value and their attempt to serve and please me without underlying faith also is meaningless).”

(Lord Shri Ram gives the message that it is futile to be spiritual with a wavering faith that God will be reached and reversely if one has lot of faith in himself that he will reach God but has no willingness to engage in service to please Him and discharge duties in line with His desire also nurses false hope. By subduing individual ego through worship of Shiv, the Lord of collective ego of all, and then serving the Lord with selfless service only one may be entitled to achieve salvation. If someone nurses his ego while thinks is serving the Lord is on a wrong path because ego will not allow selfless service to be performed. Lord as Shri Ram demonstrated that He is no exception to this rule.)
