Kishkinda Kanda 28…The Fourth Sopan Ends

hanumanjialways

Kahayi reechpati sunu Hanumana/ Ka chup saadhi rahehu balvana//

Pavan tanay bal pavan samana/ Buddhi bibek bigyan nidhana//

The king of bears Jambavan then spoke thus: ‘Listen, Hanuman! Why are you so silent?’

‘You are the son of the Wind God and equal to him in strength! You are the epitome of intelligence, wisdom and knowledge!’

Note: Due to a curse in his childhood (when he annoyed sages due to his great powers and naughtiness) Hanuman was supposed to be forgetful of his immense powers until he was reminded by somebody.

**

Kavan so kaaj kadin jag maahim/ Jo nahim hoyi taat tumh paahim//

Ram kaaj lagi tav avatara/ Sunatahim bhayavu parbatakara//

‘Is there any insurmountable task in this world,  that you cannot accomplish with ease?’

‘In fact your birth purpose is to carry out the assignment of Lord Ram!’ Hearing these words, Hanuman grew into the size of a mountain!

**

Kanak baran tan tej biraaja/ Manahu apar girinh kar raja//

Simhanaad kari barahim baara/ Leelahim naghavu jalanidhi khaara//

His hue was golden; his body’s radiance was mind boggling; he looked like another Sumeru-the king of mountains!

Hanuman let out a series of lion- like roars! He said, ‘Even as child’s play, I can cross this ocean easily!’

**

Sahit sahay Ravanahi maari/ Aanavu iham trikut upaari//

Jambavant mai poochavu tohi/Uchit sikhavanu deejahu mohi//

‘I can kill Ravan and all his followers, uproot Trikuta Mountain and bring it back here!’

‘Hey Jambavan! Tell me what I am supposed to do!’ (Please guide me!)

**

Etana karahu taat tumh jaayi/ Sitahi dekhi kahahu sudhi aayi//

Tab nij bhuj bal Rajeevanaina//Kautuk laagi sangh kapi sena//

(Jambavan said) ‘Hey son! Just go and see Sitaji, and return with her news.’

The lotus eyed Lord shall kill Ravan with his own hands and reclaim Janakiji. He is taking the monkey army with him as a part of his Leela.

**

Kapi sen sangh sanghari nisichar Ramu seetahi aanihaim/

Trailok paavan sujasu sur muni naradaadi Bakhanihaim//

Jo sunat gaavat kahat samuchat param pad nar paavai/

Raghubeer pad padhoj madhukar das tulsi gaavai//

With his monkey army, Ram shall kill the asuras and bring back Sitaji. Then all the sages like Narad and the Gods shall glorify the Lord; an act  which shall purify the three worlds. Hearing of which, singing of which, speaking of which, understanding of which, human kind shall attain the Lord’s abode. The honey bee buzzing around the lotus feet of Lord Ram, Tulsi Das sings the Lord’s praises.

Doha

Bhav bheshaj Raghunadh jasu sunahim je nar aru naari/

Tinh kar sakal manoradh siddh karahim Trisaraari//

Sri Ramji’s story is the single antidote to the disease of constant births and deaths.

Any man or woman hearing His story, shall have all their dreams fruitful by the blessings of the enemy of Khar (Lord Ram)

**

Nilolpal tan syam kam koti sobha adhik/

Suniya taasu gun gram jaasu naam agh khag badhik//

The divine Lord whose bluish hued body is as beautiful as a blue lotus, whose radiance is more than that of a thousand Kam Devas (The handsome God of Desire),

Whose Name is the predator of all the birds called mortal sins; one should hear about His glorious qualities.

**

Iti Sreemadramcharitmanase sakalkalikalushvidhwamsane chaturthah sopanah samaptah/

The Fourth Sopan of Sree Ramcharit Manas- which ends all the sins accrued in Kaliyug- ends here.
