53rd & 54th Dohas of Sunderkand

Chaupai:

turata nåi lachimana pada måthå,cale duta baranata guna gåthå||

kahata råma jasu lamkå° åe,råvana carana sisa tinha nåe||1||

bihasi dasånana pu°chi båtå,kahasi na suka åpani kusalåtå||

puni kahu khabari bibhisana keri,jåhi mrtyu åi ati neri||2||

karata råja lamkå satha tyågi,hoihi java kara kiia abhågi||

puni kahu bhålu kisa katakåi,kathina kåla prerita cali åi||3||

jinha ke jivana kara rakhavårå,bhayau mrdula cita simdhu bicårå||

kahu tapasinha kai båta bahori,jinha ke hrdaya°tråsa ati mori||4||


Soon after bowing their head at Lakshmana's feet,and narrating the tale of Lord Rama's virtues, the spies left.Raving about the glories of Lord Rama, they entered Lanka and bowed their heads at Ravana's feet.


The ten-headed Ravana

The ten-headed Ravana laughed and asked them the report, “Oh Suka!Why don't you tell me about your well-being?And then tell me the news about that Vibhishana over whom death is looming.The fool abandoned Lanka which he was ruling.Being ill-fated he will become a weevil (pest) (He will also be killed along with the men-monkeys as a weevil is crushed with grains of barley) as of now.


The Ocean is Protecting Rama's Army

Thereafter tell me about the state of the army comprising of bears and monkey, that has been driven here by harsh destiny. And it is the poor soft-hearted ocean who has become the protector of their lives.(if the ocean did not stand between them and the demons, the fiends would have killed and devoured them).And then go on to tell me about those ascetics (Rama and Lakshmana) whose hearts are petrified of me. "


Doha:53

ki bhai bhemta ki phiri gae sravana sujasu suni mora|

kahasi na ripu dala teja bala bahuta cakita cita tora||53||


Lord Rama and Lakshmana

"Did you get to meet them or did they retreat just by hearing of my fame? Why don't you reveal the enemy's brilliance and power? Your mind seems very dazed (alarmed.)"

Chaupai:

nåtha krpå kari pu°chehu jaise°,månahu kahå krodha taji taise°||

milå jåi jaba anuja tumhårå,jåtahi råma tilaka tehi sårå||1||

råvana duta hamahi suni kånå,kapinha bå°dhi dinhe dukha nånå||

sravana nåsikå kåtai låge, råma sapatha dinhe° hama tyåge||2||

pu°chihu nåtha råma katakåi,badana koti sata barani na jåi||

nånå barana bhålu kapi dhåri,bikatånana bisåla bhayakåri||3||

jehi pura daheu hateu suta torå,sakala kapinha maha° tehi balu thorå||

amita nåma bhata kathina karålå,amita någa bala bipula bisålå||4||


Lord Rama Accepted Vibhishana

(The envoy replied) “Oh Lord!Just as you have kindly asked me these questions in the same manner discard anger and listen to me (believe what I say).As soon as your younger brother went and met Lord Rama the Lord applied the sectarian mark of coronation on his forehead.


The Monkeys Beat up the Spies of Ravana

The monkeys bound us on hearing that we were the spies of Ravana and tortured us in many ways.They were about to slash our ears and noses but only when we requested them under oath to Lord Rama, did they somehow spare us.


Oh Lord! You had enquired about the army of Lord Rama, but a million mouths will fail to describe it.The troops comprise of multi-hued bears and monkeys, with terrifying faces and huge bodies which are fearsome ?


Hanuman who Burnt Lanka

The one who burnt the city and killed your son, Akshay Kumar, is least powerful of the monkeys. There are innumerable warriors with many names who are tough and frightening. They have the might of countless elephants and are very huge in size."
