Vinay Patrika: 195

Raag Gauri

Shri Ram, Sita & Lakshman

bali jaaun haaun raam gusaaeen | keejaai kripaa aapnee naaeen ||1||

paramaarth surpur-saadhan sab svaarth sukhad bhalaaee |

kali sakop lopee suchaal, nij kathin kuchaal chalaaee ||2||

jahan jahan chit chitvat hit, tahan nit nav bishaad adhikaaee |

ruchi-bhaavtee bhabhri bhaaghi, samuhaahin amit anbhaaee ||3||

aadhi-magan man, byaadhi-bikal tan, bachan maleen jhuthaaee |

aitehun par tumson tulsiki prabhu sakal saneh sagaaee ||4||

Shri Ram's Grace

O my Naath, Shri Ram ji! I implore you devotedly to grant your spontaneous grace on me ||1||

Shri Ram Bestows Joys on Us

The one (Shri Ram) who bestows joys of the highest truth, paradise and worldly selfishness. All the means (absence of passion, self-control, penance and yagya) which are conducive to one's well-being have been made to vanish by an infuriated Kaliyuga of pretence. And he has activated his shrewd moves (like hypocrisy, deceit and scorn) which are painful||2||

Kaliyuga or The Age of Spiritual Darkness

Wherever this heart focuses on its gain, new griefs increase right there, everyday. The matters which are worthy of interest flee from a distance and those ruthless objects which the heart does not want, confront us. Which means even on striving to attain happiness, unlimited sorrows weigh down on us ||3||

Goswami Tulsidas & Shri Ram Share a Loving Bond

The mind is steeped in worries, the body is distraught because of being ridden by diseases, and our speech lies and is becoming foul (always speaks lies, is harsh and uses filthy language). But O Nath, even after all these drawbacks! The bonding of Tulsidas and his love for you, is just as intact as it ever was (I am extremely grateful to you for maintaining this lovable bond in a steadfast manner, with this sort of a wretched person)||4||

Naath: a title of Shri Ram, the Lord who is protector

yagya: is a ritual of sacrifice derived from the practice of Vedic times. It is performed to please the gods or to attain certain wishes. An essential element is the sacrificial fire or the divine agni.
