We covered up to Doha 60 of Lanka Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas and this further to it.

उहाँ राम लछिमनहिं निहारी। बोले बचन मनुज अनुसारी।।
अर्ध राति गइ कपि नहिं आयउ। राम उठाइ अनुज उर लायउ।।
सकहु न दुखित देखि मोहि काऊ। बंधु सदा तव मृदुल सुभाऊ।।
मम हित लागि तजेहु पितु माता। सहेहु बिपिन हिम आतप बाता।।
सो अनुराग कहाँ अब भाई। उठहु न सुनि मम बच बिकलाई।।
जौं जनतेउँ बन बंधु बिछोहू। पिता बचन मनतेउँ नहिं ओहू।।
सुत बित नारि भवन परिवारा। होहिं जाहिं जग बारहिं बारा।।
अस बिचारि जियँ जागहु ताता। मिलइ न जगत सहोदर भ्राता।।
जथा पंख बिनु खग अति दीना। मनि बिनु फनि करिबर कर हीना।।
अस मम जिवन बंधु बिनु तोही। जौं जड़ दैव जिआवै मोही।।
जैहउँ अवध कवन मुहु लाई। नारि हेतु प्रिय भाइ गँवाई।।
बरु अपजस सहतेउँ जग माहीं। नारि हानि बिसेष छति नाहीं।।
अब अपलोकु सोकु सुत तोरा। सहिहि निठुर कठोर उर मोरा।।
निज जननी के एक कुमारा। तात तासु तुम्ह प्रान अधारा।।
सौंपेसि मोहि तुम्हहि गहि पानी। सब बिधि सुखद परम हित जानी।।
उतरु काह दैहउँ तेहि जाई। उठि किन मोहि सिखावहु भाई।।
बहु बिधि सिचत सोच बिमोचन। स्त्रवत सलिल राजिव दल लोचन।।
उमा एक अखंड रघुराई। नर गति भगत कृपाल देखाई।।
सो0-प्रभु प्रलाप सुनि कान बिकल भए बानर निकर।
आइ गयउ हनुमान जिमि करुना महँ बीर रस।।61।।

Back in Lanka, Shri Ram, up on watching His dear brother Lakshman comatose, began to lament like an ordinary person and could be listened saying, “it is already past mid-night and Hanuman hasn’t returned.” Shri Ram then lifted Lakshman and brought him close to His bosom and began emotional outburst thinking Lakshman would listen; He said, “You could not ever see me grieving or sorrowful, O Brother, you have always had a kind and soft heart. You loved me so much that for my sake you even left mother and father back home to come with me. You suffered only for my sake all kinds of weather conditions in the forest. Where is that affection now, Brother. Why don’t you now quickly get up worrying and concerned as always whenever I happened to call you.

“If I had been aware of the possibility of losing my brother during my sojourn in the jungles, I would surely not have cared for words of my father. Sons, wealth, women, houses and company of family members is routinely available in the world and routinely separated also. A real brother is of course is not to be had so easily rather can never be had by an individual in the world.

“If harsh and dumb fate of mine needs me to live on, O Brother, without you my life would be as miserable and as burdensome as the life of a bird without wings, of a serpent without its Mani (jewel on head) and of an elephant without its trunk.

“What face would I carry back to Ayodhya that I have lost my dear brother for the sake my woman. It would have been better for me to bear disgrace and defamation heaped on me by the world because loss of one’s woman is not after all a big loss which can’t be made up. Now not just bad name but also grief of loss of you, my child, will have to be borne by my apathetic and insensitive heart.

“You are the only son of your mother, you are sole support to her life. She had given you in my hand holding you in her own hand thinking that I would ensure your ultimate welfare and provide you all kinds of comforts; what answer would I give to her up on my return, why don’t you get up and give the cue.”

The Lord who is known to be stealing worries of all was now busy thinking worriedly about many things and tears were oozing out of His lotus eyes profusely. At this stage Lord Shiv explained to Parvati saying, “Uma, Raghuraj Shri Ram is same impenetrable and unending entity known as the Supreme Lord of Universe; He, as an avatar and out of His grace, is just showing to His devotees the pattern of thinking that a person of this fragile and distracting world would have in times of intense grief, losing rationality and getting carried away by emotions.”

The lamentation of the Lord which fell in the ears of monkeys in groups there made them very upset and bothered; in the mean time Hanuman arrived there as if the atmosphere heavy with deep sadness and dejection is charged by entry of a hero bringing hope.

We have now covered up to Doha 61 of Lanka Kand.
