Ayodhya-kanda - Soratha 201

Sri Ramcharitmanas is a great Hindu scripture and poetic classic written by Goswami Tulsidas.

Soratha - 201

"Sri Rama knows the heart of all; nay, He is an embodiment of tenderness, affection and compassion. Considering this and summoning courage in your heart, please go and take rest."


Bharata took comfort at the words of his friend and proceeded toward his lodgings with his thoughts directed towards the Hero of Raghu's race. On receiving this news the men and women of the city sallied forth to see the place. (where Sri Rama had slept one night) much distressed at heart. Pacing round the spot clockwise they made obeisance to it and blamed Kaikeyi to their heart's content. Tears rushed to their eyes again and again and they reproached cruel Fate. Some would praise Bharata's love, while others said the king had vindicated his affection. They would reproach themselves and praise the Nisada chief; who can describe their confusion and woe? In this way they all kept vigil overnight and at daybreak the passage across the river began. The Guru was put on a good and handsome, and all the mothers on another newly-built one. In an hour and a half everyone was taken across. When Bharata had alighted, he made sure that all had come.
