'Sri Rama is the Parabrahma. He is all-powerful. He is Purushothama
(The Man Supreme). His deeds, word manners and conduct alone are
the models of an ideal life. Singing hymns in His honour as his
servants is the on way to attain His grace and a salvation. Knowing
Him to be their master, The duty of human beings is to offer their
services to Him.' This is the sum and substance of the Bhakti
cult of Tulasidas.
time Tulasidas began to think of leaving Chitrakoota. This was
because he had a feeling that he would not be able to see Sri
Rama there. So he went to Ayodhya, the birth place of Rama. For
a long time he did 'tapas' (leading a very strict life, giving
up all pleasures and devoting all the time to the contemplation
of God) there. But even there he did not get the vision of Sri
Rama. His mind was not at ease. Day by day his desire to see Sri
Rama grew more and more intense.
One day it
suddenly flashed to his mind that God Anjaneya's grace 'was essential
for him to see Sri Rama. Yes. Anjaneya was the greatest devotee
of Sri Rama. Only he could help Tulasidas see Sri Rama. So the
first thing was, to see Anjaneya.
