Task Underway…As He Said!

IMG_1854

Hanuman- the One who has conquered ego, the One with a broken chin…Hanu/ Man have been interpreted in many ways. (Based on stories of Hanumanji being hit by Indira’s Vajrayudha in his childhood, based on Hanumanji conquering ego)

He is the epitome of humility who addresses Sursa as Mother, and promises that he will return to be her food after he makes the trip to Lanka to fulfill Sriramji’s task.

The book getting readyūüėä

Editing, tweaking, adjusting sentences, formatting … The task is on, as He said. We will return after fulfilling it.

I heard the Hanuman Chalisa for the first time after I joined my civil services work in Uttar Pradesh.

Bhoot Pisach Nikat Nahi Aavai

Mahabir Jab Naam Sunavai//

In Mathura, in the main temple, is a statue of Hanuman opposite SreeRamji- slightly bent, eyes flowing with tears of devotion! One gets electrified by the sight of Hanumanji!

Doha:

Kaam krodh mad lobh sab nadh narak ke panth/

Sab parihari Raghubeerahi bhajahu jehi santh//

Hey Lord! Kama, krodha, lobh and moh ( Lust, Anger, Greed and Desire) are the pathways to hell (Narak)

Jaasu nam tray taap nasavan/soyi Prabhu pragat samuchu jiyam Ravan//

Even if one is bearing the sin of harming the whole universe, on seeking refuge, The Lord does not denounce such a person too

The One whose Name removes the triumvirate of pain, the Lord himself has assumed human form, Hey Ravan! Please understand the truth in your heart

*

Doha:

Baar baar pad lagavu binay karavu Dasasees/

Sab Prakar Prabhu Poorankama(24): The Lord Is Completely Desireless

IMG_1455.JPG

Ta kar doot anahl jehim sirija/ jara na so tehi karan Girija//

Ulty palty Lanka sab jaary/koodi para puni sindhu machaary//

( Lord Shiv says), Hey Girija! Hanuman is the messenger of The One who has created Fire, hence he has not been burnt by it himself

Hanumanji leapt from one end to the other and burnt Lanka down, then he jumped into the ocean

*

Doha: Poonch buchaayi khoyi shram dhari laghu roop baghori/

Janaksuta kem aagem daadh bhayavu kar jori//

Having doused the fire in his tail, and taking a little rest, Hanumanji assumed his small form again

And appeared before Janakiji with folded hands

*

Matu mohi deeje kacchu cheenha/jaisem Raghunayak mohi deenha//

Choodamani utari tab dayavu/harash samet Pavansut layavu//

(He said) Mother! Please give me an object of identification, like what SreeRamji had given me

Sitaji removed  Choodamani from her head and gave it to Hanumanji, who took it with utmost joy

( Choodamani: head ornament, studded with jewels)

Deen Dayal biridhu sambhary/harahu nadh mam sankat bhary//

You are bound by compassion to those who grieve,( and I am grieving),so, please be compassionate and remove this intense grief of mine

Tat sakrasut katha sunayehu/baan pratap prabhuhi samuchayehu//

Maas diwas mahu nadhu na aava/tau puni mohi jiat nahim paava//

Hey Son! Tell him the story of Jayant( son of Indra) and remind him of the strength of his arrow

If the Lord does not arrive in a month’s time, he would not be able to save me

(At Chitrakoot, when a tired SreeRamji was resting on Sitaji’s lap, Jayanta had harassed her in the form of a crow by pecking at her. The Lord had woken up and been enraged at the sight, and had pulled up a grass blade and send it forth as Brahmastra- the crow had flown across the ¬†multiple worlds seeking refuge but finally ended up at SreeRamji’s feet. Since the Brahmastra could not be withdrawn, SreeRamji on Jayanta’s request had allowed it to blind his left eye.This incident was known only to the couple.)

*

Kahu kapi kehi bidhi rakaum praana/ tumhahu Tat kahat ab jaana//

Tohi dekhi seetali bhai chaathi/puni mo kahu soyi dinu so rathi//

Bhai Sahay Sarad Mai Jaana (23): I know that Goddess Sarada Has Helped

img_1454

Hanumanji burns Lanka ( SundarKanda continued)

*

Bachan sunat kapi man musukaana/ bhai sahay sarad mai jaana//

Jatudhan suni Ravan bachana/ lagai rachaim moodh soyi rachna//

Hearing Ravan’s suggestion, Hanumanji started laughing to himself ( in his mind) and started thinking, Devi Sarada has definitely helped ( The Goddess rules over words, speech, learning, intelligence: She has influenced Ravan’s mind)

The Rakshasas, foolishly ran to fulfill Ravan’s command by starting preparations ( for setting fire to his tail)

*

Raha na nagar basan khrit tela/ badhi poonch keenh kapi khela//

Kautuk kah aaye purbaasy/ maarahim charan karahim bahu haasy//

The amounts of cloth, ghee and oil needed were so much that the city ran short of these very soon, Hanumanji  was playing a game by increasing the size of his tail

The citizens arrived to watch the fun, they kicked Hanumanji and laughed out in mockery

*

Baajahim dhol dehim sab taari/ nagar pheri puni poonch prajaari//

Pavak jarath dekhi Hanumantha/bhayavu param laghuroop turantha//

The drums were being beaten, every one was applauding, they took Hanumanji around the city and then set fire to his tail

Seeing the fire, Hanumanji quickly assumed a very tiny form

*

Nibuki chadevu kapi kanak atarim/bhayim sabheet nisachar naarim//

Escaping from bondage, he jumped up on to a golden rooftop, seeing him the Rakshasa women got terrified

*

Doha:

Hari prerit tehi avasar chale marut unchaas/

Attahas kari garja kapi badi laag akaas//

At that instant, due to the Lord’s will, fortynine winds ( of great force) started blowing

Hanumanji gave out a ferocious roar, and grew to the size of the skies

*

Deh bisaal param haruaayi/ Mandir tem mandir chad dhayi//

Jarai nagar bha log bihaala/ chapat lapat bahu koti karaala//

His body was gigantic but light and agile, he ran from one house to another

The city was burning, people were running helter skelter, the tongues of fire, crores in number were consuming everything

*

Tat Matu ha suniya pukara/ ehim avasar ko hamahi ubara//

Hum jo kaha yeh kapi nahim hoyi/ banar roop dharem sur koyi//

‘Oh My Father! Oh My Mother! Who will protect me now?’From all four sides, these cries were heard

( Rakshasas were crying) ‘ I had told even then that this is no ordinary monkey, but a Deva in disguise!’

*

Sadhu avagya kar bhalu aisa/jarai nagar anadh kar jaisa//

Jaara nagaru nimishi ek mahim/ek Bibheeshan kar grih nahim//

As a result of humiliating a holy soul , the city was burning like an orphaned one

In one second, Hanumanji had burnt the whole city down, except Bibheeshan’s home

Mann Ram Pad Kamal Leen(8)- The Mind Meditating On SreeRam’s Lotus Feet

img_1372

SundarKanda ¬†continued…

Kahahu kavan maim param kuleena/kapi chanchal sabahim bidhi heena//

Prath leyi jo naam hamara/ tehi din taahi na milai ahaara

( Hanumanji tells Vibheeshanji) To state a fact, what sort of high status do I have myself? I am an impulsive vanar,and in all aspects I am an inferior person

In the morning if people speak of us( me and brethren), then they end up deprived of their food

*

Doha: As maim adham sakha sunu mohu par Raghubeer/

Keenhi kripa sumiri gun bhare bilochan neer//

Hey Sakha( Friend, compatriot!)Listen, I am such a lowly person, but Sreeramchandraji has showered even me with his compassion

Remembering the Lord’s qualities( gunaas), Hanumanji’s eyes filled with tears of immense love.

*

Janathahu as swami bisary/bhirhim te kahi na hohim dukhary//

Ehi bidhi kahahu Ram gun graama/ pava anirbachya bishrama//

Those who, inspite of knowing the greatness of such a Lord( SreeRaghunathji), forgets Him and stumbles around in search of worldy pleasures, why wouldn’t they be miserable?

In this manner describing SreeRamji’s qualities, Hanumanji attained ineffable( anirvachaniya- beyond description) peace.

*

Puni sab kadha Bibheeshan kahi/jehi bidhi Janaksuta thah rahi//

Tab Hanumanth kaha sunu bhratha/dekhi chahahu Janaki Mata//

Vibheeshanji Then spoke of Sree Janakiji ( daughter of Janakji), the story of  her condition while staying in Lanka

Then Hanumanji said, Hey brother! I want to see Janaky Mata ( Mother)

*

Juguthy Bibheeshan sakal sunayi/ Chalehu pavansuta bida karai//

Kari soyi roop gayavu puni tahavam/Ban Asok Sita rah jahavam//

Vibheeshanji told him all ways of meeting Sita Mata, then Hanumanji took his leave

Assuming his tiny form he went to that part of the Asoka forests, where Sitaji was residing.

*

Dekhi manahi mahu keenh pranaama/baidehim beethi jaath nisy jaama//

Kris tanu sees jatan ek beny/ japati hridayam Raghupathy gun shreny//

Seeing Sitaji, Hanumanji bowed in reverence in his mind, the four yaamas( a figure of measure of time) of the night passed by as she continued sitting there

Her body was weak and frail, on her head was an untidy knot of her tangled hair,her heart was whispering( reciting)the praise of Sree Raghunathji

*

Doha: Nij pad nayan diyem mann  Ram pad kamal leen/

Param dukhi bha pavansuta dekhi Janki deen//

Sree Janakiji’s eyes were looking at her feet( eyes downcast), her mind meditating on the lotus feet of SreeRamji

Seeing the extremely sad ( deen) state of Janakiji, Hanumanji became very unhappy.

*

Taru pallav mahu raha lukai/karai bichar karaum ka bhai//

Tehi avasar Ravanu tah aava/sang naari bahu kiyem banava//

Hanumanji hid himself among the leaves of the Asoka tree and started wondering, (ah brother, what should I do?)how can I help to remove her unhappiness?

At that time, accompanied by many women, a heavily decked up Ravan arrived.

Translations : Veeran Kutty Poems

image

More translations from Malayali writer Veerankutty. From his book, Veerankuttiyude Kavithakal.

****

Note: As a translator, I was struck by the spirituality and simplicity of the poems.

Having recently translated spiritual poetry ¬†from saints across east and west, including the Sufis, I recollected the moments of admiring similar threads of gold from God’s tapestry of Love Poems.

****

1. Until existence ceases  ( Illathakum Vare)

You

Should

Look at me,

Amid the trees.

I  would be

Looking at you too,

Likewise.

It is just to see,

Who would be the first

Among us

To dry up;

When summer

Arrives.

2.  Request ( Apeksha)

Dear God,

In case you are planning

To  banish me

From

Love-

Do give a hint,

Early on.

I have to make

Certain arrangements

Before death.

3. Precision ( Sookshmata)

Our love

Might escape

Deterioration

For quite a while-

Since you are

Already

Laminating it

With your tears.

4. In the same rain ( Ore Mazhayil)

Two separate births,

Ours-

In two different places.

Yet,

We can get drenched

In the same rain.

We can touch each other

With the same breeze.

Did we not become blind

In the same lightning?

Even so,

How can a small death

Ever

Obliterate us?

5. In Love( Pranayathal)

How long did this house,

Made of

Darkness

Survive?

Until

They arrived-

Blinded with love.

Now,

It has become

A house of light.

Little suns

Are at play,

In the front yard.

6. This lightning( Minnale)

Love,

Will make us sit on

Rods without insulation.

The vibrations,

Shall make our beaks

Touch each other.

Then,

Something like lightning

Shall pass through us both.

How can electricity elaborate

On what it feels like

When travelling through lovers?

Say, will it cease violence then?

Shall it cause the lighthouse- trees

On the sea shores,

To bloom out with flowers?
