सुनु गिरिजा क्रोधानल जासू। जारइ भुवन चारिदस आसू।।
सक संग्राम जीति को ताही। सेवहिं सुर नर अग जग जाही।।
यह कौतूहल जानइ सोई। जा पर कृपा राम कै होई।।
संध्या भइ फिरि द्वौ बाहनी। लगे सँभारन निज निज अनी।।
ब्यापक ब्रह्म अजित भुवनेस्वर। लछिमन कहाँ बूझ करुनाकर।।
तब लगि लै आयउ हनुमाना। अनुज देखि प्रभु अति दुख माना।।
जामवंत कह बैद सुषेना। लंकाँ रहइ को पठई लेना।।
धरि लघु रूप गयउ हनुमंता। आनेउ भवन समेत तुरंता।।
दो0-राम पदारबिंद सिर नायउ आइ सुषेन।
कहा नाम गिरि औषधी जाहु पवनसुत लेन।।55।।
We covered up to Doha 54 of Lanka Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

At this stage Lord Shiv while telling the Ramkatha for benefit of Parvati tells her about the divinity of Lakshman and says, “Listen O Girija (daughter of mountain king), who (Lakshman as Sheshnaag) can burn the entire fourteen known worlds (seven lower and seven upper) with the fire generated when extremely angry, how can he (Lakshman) be won over in any kind of battle; he is served by gods and the humans of the entire world without an exception. But this mysterious fact can be known only by those who have the benefit of Lord Ram’s grace.

When it was dusk, the two armies began to assess loss of the members on respective side and take care of those alive. The all pervading Lord of Universe, indomitable and the master of the world, Shri Ram who is abundantly merciful enquired , “Where is Lakshman.” Right then Hanuman brought Lakshman in an unconscious state; watching His younger brother the Lord Ram felt immensely hurt and grief-stricken. Jamvant then said that there is Sushen, a Vaidya (a doctor) of repute back in Lanka, if somebody could get him it should help. Hanuman once again came forward and assuming a small form went there and brought Sushen along with the house that he resided in (as equipment and medicines might also be needed in process of treatment).

Sushen bowed at the lotus feet of Shri Ram (a doctor knows no sides) and telling the name of the medicinal herb and the name of the mountain where it could be found, he asked Pawansut Hanuman to bring it.

We have now covered up to Doha 56 of Lanka Kand.
राम चरन सरसिज उर राखी। चला प्रभंजन सुत बल भाषी।।
उहाँ दूत एक मरमु जनावा। रावन कालनेमि गृह आवा।।
दसमुख कहा मरमु तेहिं सुना। पुनि पुनि कालनेमि सिरु धुना।।
देखत तुम्हहि नगरु जेहिं जारा। तासु पंथ को रोकन पारा।।
भजि रघुपति करु हित आपना। छाँड़हु नाथ मृषा जल्पना।।
नील कंज तनु सुंदर स्यामा। हृदयँ राखु लोचनाभिरामा।।
मैं तैं मोर मूढ़ता त्यागू। महा मोह निसि सूतत जागू।।
काल ब्याल कर भच्छक जोई। सपनेहुँ समर कि जीतिअ सोई।।
दो0-सुनि दसकंठ रिसान अति तेहिं मन कीन्ह बिचार।
राम दूत कर मरौं बरु यह खल रत मल भार।।56।।

The son of wind-god went after planting in his own heart the image of Ram’s feet but only after assuring the Lord about his capacity of carrying out the task at hand. In the meantime a detective of Ravan told his master the facts about the goings on in the other camp. This prompted Ravan to approach Kalnemi*, a fellow demon, and told everything that happened and that was needed to be done from his own side including the help needed of Kalnemi himself.

Listening to this kind of request Kalnemi began to beat his own head repeatedly in consternation.; he told Ravan, “who could burn down your capital while you remained just an onlooker, just think can his way be blocked by anyone. O Master, worship Raghupati Shri Ram and maintain your own welfare and interests, its better to stop falsely jabbering.  His beautiful body’s complexion resembles that of a blue lotus and you must keep the image of Him in heart which is appealing and pleasing to eyes. It is time to stop thinking foolishly in terms of me and mine, you need to wake up from the slumber of a great delusion during the dark night of ill intention. He (Ram)  out lasts even the long winding snake that is Kaal (the time), is it ever possible to defeat Him in a any kind of war.”

Listening to sermons delivered by Kalnemi, Ravan got uncontrollably angry and hence Kalnemi thought within that this devil is carrying a lot of grime and filth over his head and it would be better for me to get killed instead, by a messenger of Shri Ram, the Lord.

We have now covered up to Doha 56 of Lanka Kand.

Bhavani Shankar ki Jai!

Shri Jankivallabho Vijayatey!

Pawansut Hanuman Ki Jai!

Sant Samaj ko Pranam!

Goswami Tulsidas Ki Jai!



Krishna Khandelwal

*Kalnemi means one who respects time and understands its importance and extent of its influence and guidance as also its limits. Such a one naturally has deeper understanding even if he be low by nature and tendency.
