Continuing from previous blog…SundarKanda , Hanuman’s journey to Lanka.
Jaath Pavansuth devan dekha/janaim kahu bal buddhi bishesha/
Sursa namak Ahinh Kai Mata/Padainhy ayi kahi tehi batha//
The Devas watched the son of the WindGod flying thus, in order to test his special powers
They send forth the Mother of Serpents named Sursa, and she, meeting Hanuman spoke thus.
Aaj suranh mohi deenh ahaara/sunath bachan kaha pavankumara/
Ram kaju kari bhiry mai avai/ Sita kai sudhi Prabhuhi sunavaim//
Today the Devas have given me food.Hearing this, Son of Wind God said,
Let me finish the task assigned by Sree Ramji and return, let me appraise the Lord about Sitaji
Tab tak badan paidihau ayi/ satya kahavu mohi jan de mai/
Kavenuhu jatan dei nahi jaana/ grasasy na mohi kahevu hanumana//
I will then enter your mouth( I shall let you eat me), Hey Mata, I am speaking the truth, now let me go
When she did not listen to any of his pleas, Hanumanji said- Go ahead and eat me.
Jojan bhary tehi badanu pasara/ kapi tanu keenh dugun bistara/
Sorah jojan mukh tehi dayavu/ turat pavansuta batees bayavu//
She enlarged her mouth to a Yojana, Hanumanji became twice as big
She made her mouth sixteen yojanas wide, Hanumanji became thirty two yojanas in size
Jas Jas Surasa badanu badava/ tasu doon kapi roop dikhava/
Sat jojan tehi aanan keenha/Ati laghu roop pavansuta leenha//
As Surasa kept on increasing the size of her mouth, Hanumanji kept on becoming twice its size,
Surasa made a hundred Yojana mouth, then Hanumanji assumed a very tiny form.
Badan paidi puni baher aava/magaa bidaa taahi siru naava/
Mohi suranh jehi laagi padava/Buddhi bal marmu tor mai paava//
He entered her mouth and came out so fast, and bowing his head bid her bye,
( She said) I have understood your strength and intelligence, the task for which the Devas had sent me.
Ram kaaju sabu karihahu tumh bal buddhi nidhaan/
Aasish deyi gayi so harashy chalevu Hanuman//?/
You will fulfill the assignment given by SreeRamchandraji, because you are the embodiment of intelligence and strength,
Blessing him thus, she left, and Hanumanji renewed his journey, full of joy.
Jai Hanuman Ki
