भये प्रगट कृपाला – गोस्वामी तुलसीदास

भये प्रगट कृपाला – गोस्वामी तुलसीदास

Introduction: See more

The epic Ram-Charit Manas by Tulsidas (AD 1532-1623) is simply unparalleled both as a reflection of a human beings devotion to Lord as also in his absolute grip over the technique in poetry. In the following passage from this mammoth work, the poet describes the birth of Rama. When the child was born, mother Kausalya saw the vision of Lord appear in all the divine glory that Tulsi describes in second verse. But she would rather have the Lord as her baby and therefore she prays to Him with both hands folded. O Lord, Vedas say that you are beyond maya, attributes and knowledge and that the whole universe in all its manifestations resides in your body. Who would ever believe that such as you, resided in my womb for nine months? Please O Lord, give up this appearance and become a newborn child, because that is what will give me infinite joy. And then the Lord, the King of the divine kingdom, smiled, became a baby and started to cry in the lap of mother. Tulsidas in the last line of this lovely piece says that whosoever sings this passage, would be liberated from this world and will never be reborn – Rajiv Krishna Saxena

भये प्रगट कृपाला, दीन दयाला, कौसल्या हितकारी
हरषित महतारी, मुनि मनहारी, अद्भुत रूप विचारी

लोचन अभिरामा, तनु घनस्यामा, निज आयुध भुज चारी
भूषन वनमाला, नयन बिसाला, सोभासिंधु खरारी

कह दुई कर जोरी, अस्तुति तोरी, केहि बिधि करूं अनंता
माया गुन ग्यानातीत अमाना, वेद पुरान भनंता

करुना सुख सागर, सब गुन आगर, जेहि गावहिं श्रुति संता
सो मम हित लागी, जन अनुरागी, भयौ प्रगट श्री कंता

ब्रह्मांड निकाया, निर्मित माया, रोम रोम प्रति बेद कहे
मम उर सो बासी, यह उपहासी, सुनत धीर मति थिर न रहे

उपजा जब ग्याना, प्रभु मुसुकाना, चरित बहुत बिधि कीन्ह चहे
कहि कथा सुहाई, मातु बुझाई, जेहि प्रकार सुत प्रेम लहे

माता पुनि बोली, सो मति डोली, तजहु तात यह रूपा
कीजे सिसुलीला, अति प्रियसीला, यह सुख पराम अनूपा

सुन बचन सुजाना, रोदन ठाना, होई बालक सुरभूपा
यह चरित जे गावहि, हरिपद पावहि, तेहि न परहिं भवकूपा।
