IMG_2135

As kahi chala maha abhimani/ Trin saman Sugreevahi jani//

Bhire ubhau Bali ati tarja/ Mudika maari mahadhuni garja//

Saying thus, the proud Bali went away to the battle field,  considering Sugreev as a mere speck of dust.

Bali hit Sugreev with his fist and easily defeating him, let out a ferocious growl.

*

Tab Sugreev bikal koyi bhaaga/Mushti Praha are bajra sam laaga//

Mai jo kaha Raghubeer kripala/Bandhu na hoyi mor yeh Kala//

Sugreev was petrified and ran away. The hit by Bali he  felt was like Indira’s Vajra!

Reaching SreeRamji, he said- Lord, I had told you that Bali was not a brother but the God of Death/ Kala.

*

Ekroop tumh bratha dovu/ Tehi bhram tem nahi marevu sovu//

Kar parsa Sugreev sareera/Tanu bha kulis gayi sab peera//

Lord Ram said- Both of You brothers look alike. I could not recognise who was who, and hence I could not kill Bali.

Sree Ramji gently touched Sugreev’s bleeding body, and his body felt as strong as Vajra ayudha. The pain started ebbing away.

*

Meli kanda suman kai maala/ Padva puni bal deyi bisaala//

Puni naana bidhi bhayi laraayi/Bitap aut dekhahim Ragurai//

Then SreeRamji put a garland of flowers around Sugreev’s neck and sent him to battle, blessing him with enormous strength.

Both brothers fought again in multiple ways. The Lord watched from behind a tree.

*

Doha:

Bahu chal bal Sugreev kar hiyam haara bhay maani/

Maara Bali Ram tab hriday maach sar taani//

Sugreev tried many tricks and manoeuvres, but finally he lost his courage

Then SreeRamji Sen to his arrow forth which pierced the heart of Bali.

Kishkindha Kanda: 10 ( Bali Param Hith Jasu Prasada)

IMG_2134

Bali param hith jasu prasada/ Milehu  Ram tumh saman bishada//

Sapnem jehi san hoyi larayi/  Jagem samuchat mann sakuchayi//

Hey SreeRamji! Bali is my ultimate well wisher, because  he is the reason behind my meeting you- the destroyer of woes!

Now if I fight with him even in my dreams, I shall, on waking up, feel remorseful about it.

*

Ab Prabhu kripa karahu ehi bhanti/ Sab taji bhajanu karau din raati//

Suni biraag sanchut kapi baani/ Bole bihasi Ramu dhanupaani//

My Lord! Now bless me that I give up all worldly attachments and devote myself to chanting of your name, day and night!

Seeing the detachment which had taken hold of Sugreev momentarily, Sree Ramji, his bow in hand, smiled and replied…

*

Jo kacchu kahehu satya sab soyi/ Sakha bachan mam mrisha na hoyi//

Nat markat iva sabahi nachavat/ Ramu khages ved as gaavat//

Whatever you said is right, but my spoken words shall not be in vain ( Bali shall die and you shall inherit the kingdom)

Kakabhushundi says: ‘ Hey Garudji! The Vedas say that Lord  Ram makes everyone dance in this worldly play, like a  gypsy directs his captive monkey!’

*

Lai Sugreev sangh Raghunatha/ Chale chap sayak gahi hatha//

Tab Raghupathy Sugreev padava/Garjesy jaayi nikat bal paava//

After that, Sree Ramji with his bow in hand, proceeded from that place with Sugreev.

Ramji sent Sugreev to Bali, and he getting inspired by SreeRamji’s presence challenged Bali with a ferocious growl.

*

Sunat Bali krodhatur dhaava/ Gahi kar charan naari samuchaava//

Sunu pati jeenhi milevu Sugreeva/Te dvau bandhu tej bal seemva//

On hearing Sugreev’s challenge, an enraged Bali ran from his palace. His wife Tara, fell at his feet and started pleading with him.

Hey Lord! Listen, the two brothers that Sugreev has befriended, they epitomise strength and radiance!

*

Kosales sut Lacchiman Rama/ Kalahu jeeti sakahim samgrama//

Those two sons of Raja Dasrat, the King of Kosala, can defeat even Yama/ Kala( Lord of Death/ Lord of Time) in a battlefield!

*

Doha:

Kah Bali sunu bhiru  priya samadarsy Raghunadh/

Jaum kadhachi mohi marahim tau puni hovum sanadh//

Bali spoke- My fearstruck beloved, listen, Sree Ramji is  even tempered ( equanimous) ( ie, He does not favour one over another)

Even suppose that He kills me, I will  be attaining  His holy abode!

*

 

 

 

Sugreev Speaks -9

Kah Sugreev sunahu Raghubeera/ Bali mahabal ati randheera//

Dundubhi asti tal dekhraye/Binu prayas Raghunath dahaye//

Sugreev said- My Lord! Bali is very strong and very ferocious a warrior. He showed SriRamji the skeleton of Dundubhi rakshasa( whom Bali had hurled from his palace when he challenged Bali in the form of a buffalo) The Lord destroyed it effortlessly.

*

Dekhi amit bal baadi preeti/ Bali badhab inh bhai parteeti//

Bar bar navayi pad seesa/Prabhuhi jaani man harash kapeesa//

Seeing SriRamji’s extraordinary strength Sugreev felt very happy and he was very sure that Bali would be killed by the Lord. He bowed at SriRamji’s feet and was full of joy due to the turn of events which led him to the Lord.

*

Upaja gyan bachan tab bola/ Nadh kripa man bhayavu alola/

Sukh sampati parivar badayi/ Sab parihari karihavu sevakayi//

When he became aware( when he was graced with wisdom)he said- Lord, due to your blessings, my mind has become calm. Leaving aside luxury, prosperity, family and  ego, I will devote myself to your service.

*

Eh sab Ramnhagati ke badhak/ Kahahim sant tav pad avaradhak//

Satru mitra sukh dukh jag mahim/ Mayakrit paramarath nahim//

All the pure souls who worship your divine feet say that all these( luxury, prosperity et al) are barriers to devotion. All the dualities that we see in this world( enemy- friend, joy and sorrow etc.,) are all  creations of  Maya . These are not real.

Rakhihavu Taahi Pran Ki Nayim (38): I Shall Safeguard Him Like My Life Breath

IMG_1490.JPG

Sugreev and SreeRamji talks about Vibheeshan (Sundar Kand Continued)

*

Kah Prabhu sakha buchiye kaaha/kahayi kapees sunahu Narnaaha//

Jaani na jayi nisachar maya/kamroop kehi karan aaya//

Prabhu SreeRamji said- Hey Friend! What is your view? Sugreev Ji said-

Lord, one does not know the maya(illusion) which the Rakshasas might use, they take different forms as per their desire( kaamna ke anuroop), I wonder about the reason behind this Rakshasa’s visit

*

Bhed hamar len sad aava/rakhia baandhi mohi as bhaava//

Sakha neeti tumh neeki bichaari/mam pan sarnagat bhayhaari//

This fool seems to have come to find out our secrets, he should be kept in captivity, that is my view

(SreeRamji said)Hey Friend! Your thought is logical( as per neeti), but I have pledged to remove the fears of those seeking refuge

*

Suni Prabhu bachan harash Hanumana/saranagat bacchal Bhagvana//

Hearing the Lord’s  words, Hanumanji was thrilled and thought, how loving and compassionate the Lord is,(saranagatvatsal) towards refugees

*

Doha:

Saranagat kahu je tajahim nij anahit anumaani//

Te nar paavar papmay tinhahi bilokat haani//

(  The Lord  said) The man , who rejects the one who has come seeking refuge, in consideration of his own safety

Such a man is worthless,sinful, and even seeing  him causes harm

*

Koti bipra badh lagahim jaahu/aayem saran tajavu nahim taahu//

Sanmukh hoyi jeev mohi jabahim/janma koti agh nasahim tabahim//

Even if someone has caused the deaths of crores of Brahmins, I would not discard him if he seeks my refuge

Any living being that comes to my presence, its sins accumulated over crores of births get removed instantaneously

*

Papavant kar sahaj subhavu/bhajanu mor tehi bhav na kavu//

Jaum pai dusht hriday soyi hoyi/morem sanmukh aav ki soyi//

It is the natural behaviour of the sinful person that he gets no joy meditating on me

If he (Ravan’s brother) was wicked in his heart, would he have come seeking out my presence?

*

Nirmal man jan so mohi paava/mohi kapat cchal cchidra na bhaava//

Bhed len padva Dasseesa/tabahu na kacchu bhay haani kapeesa//

The person with a pure mind, only he can reach me, ( attain my presence) I am beyond the reach of those who are hypocritical and wicked

Even if Ravan’s brother has been sent for studying our secrets , then too, Sugreev, there is no need for fear or  to expect any harm

*

Jag mahu sakha nisachar jete/Lacchimanu hanayi nimish mahu tete//

Jaum sabheet aava sarnayim/rakhihavum taahi praan ki nayim//

Because, My Friend! All the Rakshasas on earth, Laxman can kill them off in moments

And if he has come  to me seeking my protection, full of fear, then I shall safe guard him like my own life breath

*

Doha:

Ubhay bhathi tehi aanahu hash kah kripaniket/

Jay Kripal kahi kapi chale Angad Hanu samet//

The Temple of Compassion said smilingly- ‘Whatever be the reason among the two, bring him to me’

Then, accompanied by Angad and Hanuman, Sugreev left , hailing loudly – ‘May The Compassionate SreeRamji Be Praised!’
