Tulsi Das jee refuses to bow to Sri Ram Chandar jee

Recommended Posts

Good message by Sant ji - to carry shastars at all times, since God himself carried shastar. Even Tulsidas ji refused to accept the image of God without shastar.

Awesome! However it's such a click bait title lol. I thought it would be about something else. hehe

 

On Ram Chandra ji's Bow

Ram Chandra ji's bow was called Sharang ਸਾਰੰਗ / ਸਾਰਿੰਗ

Thus Ram Chandra ji came to be known as Wielder of Sharang Bow. In Guru Granth Sahib written as ਸਾਰੰਗਪਾਣੀ, ਸਾਰਿੰਗਧਰ, etc.

Bhagat Kabir ji said -
ਤੋਹਿ ਚਰਨ ਮਨੁ ਲਾਗੋ ਸਾਰਿੰਗਧਰ ॥
In your feet, I dwell, o Wielder of the Sharang bow.
ਸੋ ਮਿਲੈ ਜੋ ਬਡਭਾਗੋ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
Those who meet you have great fortune.

Bhagat Tulsidas ji had great fortune and great bhagti that he met Ram Chandra ji.

I always remember what Bhagat Tulsidas Ji said -
ਹੋਈ ਹੈ ਸੋਹੀ ਜੋ ਰਾਮ ਰਚੇ ਰਾਖਾ
Whatever happens is by the will of Ram Chandra ji, the protector.
 

In this manner, he came to know Ram and was inspired to write the Ram Charitra Manas. In his version of the Ramayan, he made many changes to Bhagat Valmiki ji's Ramayan, according to this own feelings and devotion/ shraddha.

Bro, Tulsi Das jee was also inspired by his wife to love Sri Ram Chandar jee. Have you heard of that story?

Nope. Post that sakhi here.

Here it is.

Tulsidas’s wife’s name was Buddhimati (Ratnavali). Tulsidas’s son’s name was Tarak. Tulsidas was passionately attached to his wife. He could not bear even a day’s separation from her. One day his wife went to her father’s house without informing her husband. Tulsidas stealthily went to see her at night at his father-in-law’s house. This produced a sense of shame in Buddhimati. She said to Tulsidas, "My body is but a network of flesh and bones. If you would develop for Lord Rama even half the love that you have for my filthy body, you would certainly cross the ocean of Samsara and attain immortality and eternal bliss". These words pierced the heart of Tulsidas like an arrow. He did not stay there even for a moment. He abandoned home and became an ascetic. He spent fourteen years in visiting the various sacred places of pilgrimage.

From Nitnem (no Tippi though)

ਪੀਵਹੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਸਦਾ ਰਹਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਰੰਗਿ ਜਪਿਹੁ ਸਾਰਿਗਪਾਣੀ ॥
