Lord Rama & Lakshmana Are Inseparable

Only a day of Lord Rama's exile, which was the sole support of Bharata's life was left. His mind weighed down with immense grief, the instant he thought of this fact. What was the reason that the Lord had not yet arrived? Considering me to be devious,I hope He has not forgotten me! Ah ! How very blessed and fortunate is Laksmana, who is a dedicated devotee of Lord Råma's lotus-feet.(he was never separated from them) The Lord has identified me to be deceitful and wicked, and that is why He refused to take me along. (It was a correct decision because) if the Lord were to consider my actions, I would not get salvation (release from rebirth) even after crores of kalpas. (But my only hope is) that the Lord never takes His devotees' drawbacks into account. He a friend of the downtrodden and extremely tender-hearted. Moreover I am thoroughly convinced at heart that Lord Ram will definitely meet me (because) the omens I am getting are so very auspicious. But, if I outlive the term (of Lord Rama's exile,)who would be as despicable as me in this world.

Hanuman, the Son of the Wind God

Precisely when Bharata's mind was sinking in the ocean of separation from Lord Råma, in the guise of a Brahman, Hanumana, the son of the Wind God, arrived as if a boat had come to Bharat's rescue (to save him from drowning.) He found a haggard Bharata seated on a mat of Kusha grass. Wearing matted hair for a crown, he chanted 'Ram! Ram! Raghupati! While tears (of love) streamed down from his lotus eyes.

Chaupai:

Lord Rama Triumphed over His Enemies

Hanumån was over-joyed, the instant he sighted him. His body was ecstatic (every fibre on his body stood erect) and tears (of joy) rained profusely from his eyes. Feeling gratified in so many ways at heart, Hanuman spoke in a voice which sounded like nectar to Bharata's ears. In whose absence you are grieved day in and day out, and constantly chant the lines of His many glorious virtues, the One who is a tilak (pride) of the Raghu Dynasty, a granter of joy to the virtuous and a protector of the gods plus sages, has safely arrived. Having triumphed over His enemies in battle, the Lord is on His way along with Sita and Lakshman. The gods are singing hymns in praise of Him.The instant Bharat heard these words, he forgot about all his sorrows, just like a thirsty man forgets the pain of his parched throat on finding nectar. (Bharata asked) O dear friend! Who are you ? And from where have you come? (That) you could tell me the most pleasant news (imparting extreme joy). (Hanumana said)


Shri Bharat Hugs Hanuman

O treasury of mercy! Listen; I am the son of the Wind God and a monkey by race. My name is Hanuman. I am a servitor of Lord Ram and a friend of the needy. Hearing this, Bharata got up and respectfully hugged him. The affection with which he wrapped his arms around him, was too great to be contained within. Tears (of joy and love) streamed down his eyes and his body was thrilled (every fibre of his body stood erect with delight). (Bharata said) O Hanuman! Seeing you, all my sorrows have come to an end. I have found my lovable Rama Himself (in your form), today. Bharata asked about the well being of Lord Rama, over and over again (and said) O Brother! Listen what should I give you (in return for this happy news)? I have reflected and come to the conclusion that there is nothing in this world which is worth giving in exchange for the news brought by you. (Therefore) O Brother! I am unable to repay your debt, in any possible way. Now, kindly recount the acts (condition) of my Lord.Then Hanuman bowed his head at Bharata's feet and narrated the entire tale of Lord Rama's virtuous deeds. (Bharat ji asked) O Hanuman! Please tell me if the merciful Lord Lord Ramchandraji ever remembers me as one of His servitors.

Chhand:

nija dåsa jyo°raghubamsabhusana kabahu° mama sumirana karyo |

suni bharata bacana binita ati kapi pulaki tana carananhi paryo ||

raghubira nija mukha jåsu guna gana kahata aga jaga nåtha jo |

kåhe na hoi binita parama punita sadaguna simdhu so ||


Lord Raghubeer is Forever Raving about Bharata's Virtues

Has Lord Rama, a jewel of the Raghu Dynasty ever been thinking of me as His servant? Hanumån was thrilled(every fibre of his body stood erect as a sign of ecstasy)at this lovingly tender question of Bharata, and he fell at his feet. (Hanuman thought to himself)Why shouldn't that Bharata be so lovingly tender, extremely pure and an ocean of virtues when Lord Raghuveer, the master of living and inanimate beings, raves about the many qualities of Bharata with His own mouth.

Doha:

råma pråna priya nåtha tumha satya bacana mama tåta, |

puni puni milata bharata suni harasa na hrdaya° samåta ||2(A)||

Sortha:

bharata carana siru nåi turita gayau kapi råma pahi |

kah kusala saba jåi harasi caleu prabhu jåna caRhi ||2(B)||


Hanuman Reveals to Lord Ram that All is Well at Ayodhya

(Hanuman ji said) O brother! You are as dear to Rama as His own life. Take my words to be true. Hearing this fact, Bharata embraced Hanuman over and over again, with a joy which knew no bounds. Thereafter bowing his head at Bharata's feet, Hanauman quickly went back to Lord Ram and revealed that all was well, on reaching there. That is when the Lord was joyous. He mounted the vimana (aerial car) and headed towards His destination.
