Jo Kalahi Khayi (3) : Eating Death Himself

image

Nisachary ek sindhu mahu rahai/ kari maya nabhu ke khag gahayi/

Jeevjanthu he gagan udahi/ jal biloki tinh kai parichahi//

There was a Nisachary( one who walks in the night aka rakshasy) who resided in the ocean, using Maya, she used to catch the flying birds in the sky

By looking at the shadows of those birds in the sky,reflected in the waters

*

Gahayi chaah sak so na udayi/ ehi bidhi sada gaganchar khayi/

Soyi chal Hanuman kah keenha/ tasu kapatu kapi turatahim cheenha//

She used to catch the shadow, so the bird could not fly( and would fall into the ocean waters), in this manner she used to eat the beings in the sky

She tried the same trick with Hanumanji, Hanumanji immediately recognised her vile trap

*

Taahi mari maruthsuth beera/ baridhi par gayavu matidheera/

Tahan jayi dekhi ban sobha/ gunjath chanchareek madhu lobha//

The son of Wind God, dheer- buddhi( one of steady intelligence), valorous Hanumanji killed her and  crossed the ocean

Reaching the shore, he looked at the beauty of the forests, intoxicated by the honey, the wild bees were buzzing loudly

*

Nana taru bhal bhool suhaye/ khag mrig brindh dekhi man bhaye/

Sail bisal dekhi ek aage/ ta par Dhabi chadevu bhay tyage//

Different types of trees stood resplendent with flowers and fruits, He became very joyous on seeing many birds and animals

Seeing a huge mountain nearby,  Hanumanji  fearlessly ran  to it and leapt to its top

*

Uma na kachu kapi kai adhikayi/ Prabhu pratap jo Kalahi khayi/

Giri par chadi Lanka tehi dekhi/ kahi na jayi athi durg biseshi//

( Shivji speaks thus-) Hey Uma! This is not about the prowess of Hanuman. This showcases the powers of the Lord, which can consume Death himself (  eat Kal)

Climbing the mountain, he looked at Lanka, there were many  intriguing forts, it was difficult to assess anything

*

Ati utang jaladhi chahu paasa/ kanak kot kar param prakaasa//

He was at great height, around him on four sides was the ocean, the  four golden walls  surrounding the city were shining magnificently.

*

Jai Hanuman Ki!
