Vinay Patrika: Hymn 131

Raag Bihag


Ahilya Attains Salvation by Falling at Shri Ram's Feet

paavan prem ram-charan-kamal janam laahu param |

ramnaam leit hoit, sulabh sakal dharam ||1||

jog, makh, bibek, birat, baed-bidit karam |

karibe kahan katu kathor, sunat madhur, naram ||2||

tulsee suni, jaani-boojhi, bhoolhi jani bharam |

tehi prabhuko hohi, jaahi sab hee kee saram ||3||

Dedicated Love for Shri Ram, is the Supreme Fruition of Life

Having purely sincere (selfless) love for the lotus feet of Shri Ramchandraji, is the supreme fruition of life, for certain. The instant we chant the name of Ram all religions are easily attainable||1||

The Vedas

In fact *yoga, *yagna, discernment, asceticism and several others *karmas have been explained in the Vedas.On hearing they sound so very sweet and tender, but are really harsh and tough when put into practice||2||

Goswami Tulsidas, the Servitor of Lord Ram

Therefore, O Tulsidas! Listen and do not forget in this misapprehension, on purpose. You must become (the daas or servitor) of that God who is mindful of the honour of everyone ||3||

yoga:a practice of abstract meditation undertaken to bring the soul into union with the supreme spirity by bodily exercises and disciplines as conducive to the above

yagna: a sacrificial act

karma: action with its fruit and implications of merit
