This Volume no. 6 continues with the English narration of the Story of Lord Ram as described in the devotional classic known as ‘Ram Charit Manas’ written by Goswami Tulsidas, from where we had left it in volume no. 5, i.e. the end of Canto 2, Ayodhya Kand.
The entire Book ‘Ram Charit Manas’ is divided into 7 Cantos, named Baal Kand, Ayodhya Kand, Aranya Kand, Kishkindha Kand, Sundar Kand, Lanka Kand, and Uttar Kand.
The topics that are covered in this volume no. 6 are the following:
The topics that are covered in this Book are the following:
(1) Indra’s son Jayant assumes the form of a crow to prick Sita’s feet in an attempt to test Lord Ram’s abilities and powers; Lord Ram punishes him by blinding him in one eye.
(2) Lord Ram leaves his hermitage at Chitrakoot and goes to meet sage Atri; the conversation between Sita and Atri’s wife Anusuiya, and between the Lord and the sage; Lord Ram takes leave of sage Atri and moves on with his journey into the wild forests.
(3) Lord Ram slays the demon Viradh and grants him deliverance; the Lord visits sage Sarbhanga who feels blessed and attains emancipation and salvation by the grace of the Lord. A large number of sages accompany Lord Ram in his journey through the forest; the Lord meets sage Sutikshan also and blesses him. Accompanied by sage Sutikshan, Lord Ram arrives at the hermitage of sage Agastya; the affectionate meeting and the conversation between the sage and the Lord; on the advice of the sage, Lord Ram goes to stay for a while at Panchavati; on the way he meets and establishes a cordial relationship with Jatau, the king of vultures.
(4) Lord Ram teaches Laxman on certain metaphysical and spiritual principles; the episode of Supernakha, the sister of Ravana, the demon king of Lanka, trying to tempt Lord Ram, and the Lord punishing her by getting her nose and ears cut off; she appeals to demon commanders Khar and Dushan to take revenge; in the ensuing battle, they, as well as the whole detachment of demon army they commanded, were killed.
(5) Supernakha goes to instigate Ravana who approaches another trusted aide named Marich to force the latter to become a golden deer so that Sita could be abducted by Ravana to settle scores with Lord Ram for having insulted his sister; Lord Ram confides with Sita and tells her of the necessity of concealing her real identity by taking shelter with the Fire God and leave only her shadow behind so that the Lord can accomplish his mission of eliminating the demons; Marich killed by Lord Ram.
(6) Meanwhile, Ravana assumed the form of a mendicant to abduct Sita; he was intercepted by Jatau, the vulture, who fought valiantly with Ravana; Jatau fell down wounded when Ravana cut off his wings; Lord Ram returns to his hermitage to find Sita missing; the two brothers then start their long search for her; Lord Ram meets the wounded Jatau who tells the Lord about Ravana abducting Sita; Jatau dies in the lap of Lord Ram and attains deliverance, emancipation, salvation and beatitude.
(7) Moving ahead, Lord Ram is confronted by the demon Kabandha whom the Lord provided liberation and deliverance from this mortal world; Lord Ram arrives at the hermitage of Sabari; the conversation between the two; Lord Ram outlines the nine forms of Bhakti to her; Sabari attains emancipation, salvation and beatitude by dying in the presence of the Lord.
(9) On the advice of Sabari, Lord Ram and Laxman move towards lake Pampa where they are to meet Sugriv, the prince of the monkey kingdom of Kishkindha, and who would assist the Lord in finding and freeing Sita from the clutches of the demons; the Lord arrives on the banks of lake Pampa to take some rest and refresh himself.
(10) Sage Narad comes to pay his obeisance to Lord Ram; the conversation between the Lord and the sage during which the Lord answers Narad’s question as to why the Lord did not allow him to marry, and then the Lord goes on to enumerate the virtues of saints.
Our Book contains the Original Text of Ram Charit Manas followed by Roman Transliteration of the verses, and then a comprehensive and analytical narrative of the Text in English, explaining it thoroughly and from different perspectives verse-by-verse, aided by detailed notes and references.
The other volumes that follow in this series will carry on with the magnificent narrative of Ram Charit Manas in a step-wise manner.

About the Author

Ajai Kumar Chhawchharia left home when he was approximately 29 years of age due to an inner call of his heart that told him to devote his life in the service of his beloved Lord God, Sri Ram.
