Chapter – 278– Sri Ramacharitha Manas – Bala Kanda– The messengers were sent to the Kingdom of Ayodhya – The City of Mithila preparing for witnessing the grand wedding arrangements
Sage Vishwamithra continues “Oh! Rajan, nevertheless, you can carry out all the ceremonies and wedding rites after conversing with your elderly members of the family, sincerely following customary rites and the rites prescribed in the Veda, after discussing with the twice-born in your Kingdom, and your preceptor Sage Shathanandha. Firstly, let the King of Ayodhya Dhashratha should be duly informed about the news of the proceedings and the future plan of activities.” Kind Janaka happily responded “Oh! Bhagavan, I shall follow your instructions carefully.” Further, the message was duly sent to King Dhasharatha, invited the prominent members of the Kingdom and King Janaka invited them reverentially and spoke in wise words “Oh! Dear members, kindly prepare the city of Mithila for the grand wedding of Devi Sita with Lord Rama, make extravagant arrangements and decorations all over the cities, markets, streets, public places, pathways, shrines, etc.” Kind Janaka enthusiastically summoned the attendants to erect pavilion, banners, flags, tents, temporary arrangements for the participants to witness the grand celestial wedding. Thus, the grand arrangements were begun in the palace of Janaka, a huge number of workers and artisans delightfully engaged in building pavilions, refreshment areas, pleasure gardens, etc. The skilled workers offered prayers to Lord Bhrama and began the work of erecting huge pillars of gold, building structures, roofing, and decoration work, etc.
