Chapter – 323– Sri Ramacharitha Manas – Bala Kanda– The nobleness of King Dhasharatha
King Janaka offered rich fragrant ingredients stuffed in sweet betel leaves to King Dasaratha and all the guests, thus Avadhapadhi bade farewell to all the monarchs and retired to his fortress. The days and nights were filled with various festivities, no one noticed the passage of time, days were passed like moments to them. Bhoopathimani/Jewel of King, Dhasharatha wakes up early hours of dawn, at the praise of Vandhigana and Suthagana of his glories, whenever he witnesses his charming sons along with their beautiful brides, his heart raptured in supreme bliss. King Dhasharatha finished the early morning rites and approached preceptor Sage Vashishta and offered sincere salutations and worshiped the sage, and with folded hands spoke to him “Oh! Muniraja, it was your grace I have received all that I have desired in my life. Oh! Mune, kindly invites Bhramins, and donate them cows decorated with golden jewels, and continue the practice for another few days.” Sage Vashishta praised King Dhasharatha for his generosity and called out for Sages.
