Chapter – 123 – Sri Ramacharitha Manas – Bala Kanda – Lord Mayapathi decides to remove the self-importance, and arrogance in Maharishi Narada
Lord Narayana plainly looked at Maharishi Narada, and whispered to himself “Oh Mune, your delusions, desires, and self-pride has to be removed at the earliest for the welfare of you.” Yet, the compassionate Lord Narayan began to speak pleasantly “Oh! Mune, you are free from the impurities of Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Madha, and Mathshcharya, Ahamkara, and Mamakara, your heart is full of wisdom and pure devotion, you are steadfast, and the strict follower of austerities, vows, and celibacy, so cannot be smitten with the pangs of love.” Maharishi Narada reverentially bowed his head and replied “Oh! Prabho, it was the grace of you, I have achieved purity of mind.” Lord Narayan realized that there is a huge tree of self-importance has sprouted in the heart of Narada and it should be destroyed at the earliest before it could harm him and throw him out from the righteous path. The Supreme Lord who is the ocean of mercy decided, “Narada is a sincere devotee of mine, should not be in trouble at any cost, I have to protect him from all the dangers, he has already taken shelter in me, I can’t be away from the promise to my devotees, I have to protect him by all means. I have to uproot the tree of arrogance and pride sprouted in his heart.” Maharishi Narada repeatedly prostrated before Lord Hari and bade farewell to him, soon Lakshmiramana instructed Maya to take good control over Maharishi Narada who was already drenched in arrogance, and self-importance.
