Sri Seethaa-Rama Mangallam.

26b, 27a. iyam= this; siitaa= Seetha; mama= my; sutaa= daughter; saha= along with / in unison with; dharma= duty; carii= acquits herself of; tava= your; prati icCha enaam= in turn, you wish for [back, take, wishfully take her back] her; ca= also bhadram te= safe betides you; paaNim= palm; gR^ihNiiSva= take into; paaNinaa= [your] palm.

“This is Seetha, my daughter, she acquits herself in whatever duty you undertake. Take her wishfully, let safeness betide you, take her palm into your palm…” [1-73-26b, 27a]

Or

iyam= this [or, here]; siitaa= Seetha [stands]; mama sutaa= my, daughter [fair]; tava= thy; saha dharma carii = to share, the duties of life; pratiicCha enaam= take from [father,] her [as bride]; ca= also; te bhadram = bliss betide! you; paaNim gR^ihNiiSva paaNinaa= hand, join, [into your] hand.

Here Síta stands, my daughter fair, / The duties of thy life to share. / Take from her father, take thy bride, / Join hand to hand, and bliss betide! / – Ralph T. H. Griffith

.

The above is very a convenient and ready made gist of that verse. But the three pronouns in the first stanza iyam, mama, tava ‘this, mine, yours…’ are supposed to play havoc in deciphering the latent meaning of this verse. Let us look at some of them.

Seetha is very much there in the front of Rama, and Janaka might have shown her and told ‘take her….’ Why this iyam i.e., ‘this…’It is explained as below:

  Janaka: This and this alone is Seetha, the unique, exceptional and earmarked one for you… do not confuse yourself by looking at Urmila, Maandavi and Shrutakiirti… they are for your brothers…

Rama: Why she alone is earmarked for me?

Janaka: Because she is ‘Seetha…’

Rama: What, you mean a furrow, or a sillion…

[Sillion is an old word for furrow, not found in dictionaries, but used by poet Hopkins in his ‘The Windhover’ ‘…sheer plod makes plough down sillion /]

Janaka: Yes, everything comes out of earth… from coal to gold, flora to fauna, rivers to ridges… everything… a morsel of food comes from a handful of mud in this mortal world… your being, becoming and belonging in, are manifest only because of that earth… and earth enables you to live on her without seeking any requital or reciprocation… and earth is the symbol of enduing toleration, though you dig, dung or dredge it…. hence, Seetha is the symbol for mortal truth, and mortally tolerant womanhood… and you people want to know the Unknown in the skies, but do not wish to know what that is right under your feet… ved˜ aham etam puruÿam mah˜ntam ˜ditya varõam tamasa× parast˜t | if the Supreme Person beyond darkness is knowable, and sages like Vishvamitra know you and tell that you are some Super Soul aham vedmi mah˜tm˜n˜m r˜mam satya par˜kramam – bala 19-14 likewise you shall know iyam siitaa, for she is somebody to match you… have you not mugged up Veda-s, Upanishad-s…

Rama: Why not… every bit of it… you name, it I tell it…

Janaka: How does the fifth mantra of eighth topic in Chaandogya Upanishad reads?

Rama: Oh, that `

Adi Shankara’s commentary: There are three letters that denote the Absolute sa, ta, yam and the syllable ii on sat is for easy pronunciation. The letter sa indicates immortality and the word ta mortality, and the syllable yam conditions and bridges both

 

 

the above…’ Ramanuja comment: The letter sat is immortality and the letter ti is mortality and yam conditions both, hence sattiyam is indicative of Spiritedness and non-spiritedness…’ Madhvaacaarya says sat, delivered immortal souls ti yet to be delivered bounded souls, yam both the delivered and bounded souls…

Janaka: Seetha is that yam the conjunctive, conditioner, bridge between the mortal and immortal, setu – eSa setu iti vidharaNa the presiding deity of catana acetana dynamic, static beings. oh, Rama, it is said in Vishnu Puraana that Seetha is your lookalike, minus your sky-blue complexion, raaghavatve bhavet siitaa… It is said in yet another scripture, yatha may˜ jagat vy˜ptam – sva r¨peõa svabh˜vata× | tay˜ vy˜ptam idam viþvam niyantrŸ ca tath˜ ŸþvarŸ || ‘as to how I am all pervading, likewise She, Goddess Lakshmi, is all pervading and the controller of the universe…’ and if you want to establish yourself as the protector of this world, you have to take this and this Seetha alone, as she is the cause for the desired effect of yours… and, she is from Mother Earth ratna garbha and you are a sapphirine boy from a mother, and a sapphire shines only if it is studded in earth-given gold anargham api maaNikyam hema aashrayam apekshate… otherwise you, your incarnation, your epic, your mission, why one or two, everything concerning you will be futile, and you have to return to your milky abode empty handed, and here on earth, every house breeds one or more Ravana-s…

Rama: How am I to conclude ‘this’ as ‘that…’ I mean Goddess Lakshmi…

Janaka: Certain aspects are to be inferred because they are unmanifest. Fire on the mountain is unmanifest but smoke is manifest, hence fire is inferred. So also, ayam iishvarii is manifest as iyam this girl… from siitaa furrow, sillion, a narrow trench in ground made by ploughshare… as a small seed manifests into a gigantic banyan tree, and from this the nature of her non-foetal birth, it is to be inferred likewise, and only because of it she is someone above mortals. Because you have come as a mortal she has to take birth as a mortal, as an inseparable entity of yours…

Rama: Then why can’t she fall from sky or from other planet?

Janaka: She cannot. Your connection with this earth is age-old and you love it. Because you love earth, she has to emerge from earth, a lovely act for you.

Rama: Then why mama sutaa… she can be fostered in any orphanage…

Janaka: Not so. An auspicious thing or being requires a sanctum sanctorum… Mithila is one such, and Videha-s are not just kings of this part of land, but they are priests of pious or holy things like the bow of Shiva. You know the naming of vi deha… it is not ‘without bodies…’ but transcending bodily affairs… Thus she chose this as her background and as she presented herself to me as baby girl, I have look upon her as mama sutaa ‘my daughter…’ And many, many kings sought her hand in marriage, but I refused and they warred with me… I had to call for the forces of gods to counterattack the enemy forces… perhaps, you might not have heard that humans can summon gods, but gods are at my disposal, and a prayer of mine brings them here, either for a war or for a ritual… So, do not take me or my daughter Seetha, iyam siitaa mama sutaa as some ignoramus and insignificant dullards…

Rama: Then why you want me to take back, as though she belonged to me for eons, but lost in a journey…

Janaka: Yes, she is yours from ages unknown… I cannot donate her in kanyaa daana ‘bestowal of bride…’ because your marriage is eternal. But you two have arrived here in human forms, so conduct yourselves in conformity with human customs… that is why I tell pratiicCha enaaam ‘take her back, wishfully…’ for that saying of mine get no anger on me bhadram te ‘safe betides’ by this act of yours… paaNim gR^ihNiSva paaNinaa ‘you take her palm into your palm…’ that which is customary in human paaNi grahaNa mahotsava ‘wedding ceremony…’ by the way, you always keep your consort in your heart hR^idaya kamala do not do such things as long as you are on earth… for your incarnation will be disclosed… just take her hand… and let not this heavenly discourse be leaked out… Ravana may come to know that you are not human and it will be impossible for you to eliminate that evil, thereby…

Likewise, let us not to disclose this info about Rama to Ravana, if any of us meet Ravana by chance. And we now proceed to the human level import of this verse.

Janaka:

 

 

This‘ girl who has mugdhamanoharamanojñamohan˜tmakasukum˜rasoundaryal˜vaõy˜dau

a beauty par excellence… [and par problématique beauté, as well… and Ravana alone has got more words to extol her beauty, as in Ch. 46 Aranya…] is iyam… Or, about whom you have heard from day one in the hermitage of Siddha, i.e., when you started towards Mithila, that girl is iyam… Or, the girl who is on your psyche from the minute you broke that Shiva’s bow, and whom you are envisioning pr˜s˜de pr˜de ca pathi pathi ca s˜ p®ÿ÷ata× s˜ purata× ‘on verandas of multistoried buildings and in window ledges, on this street and that street, before you, behind you…’ during these days of your stay in Mithila… that girl is iyam…

Sri Sita-RamaMangallam.

kausalyaa suprajaa raama puurvaa sa.ndhyaa pravartate |

2. kausalya su praajaa = Kausalya, the lucky, begetter [Kausalya is fortunate because she begot you, such as you are]; raama= oh, Rama; puurva sandhya= eastern, aurora; pra vartate= verily, emerging; uttiSTha= get up; nara shaarduula= man, the tiger; daivam= to gods; aahnikam= daytime tasks; kartavyam= is to be performed.

“Fortunate is Kausalya to beget you as her son Rama… get up oh, tigerly-man, eastern aurora is emerging, daytime tasks towards gods are to be performed.” [1-23-2]

This is another celebrated verse chanted even today. So far Rama is a dear prince to his parents. But here, no less than Sage Vishvamitra said to have deified Rama in asking him to ‘get up’ from divine trance to undertake the human duties to eliminate evil, like the dawn of the sun eliminating the evil darkness. In other ancient manuscripts the same verse obtains as:

kausaly˜ m˜taruttiÿ÷a p¨rv˜ sandhy˜ up˜syat˜m |
paurva ˜hõikam vidhim kartum t˜ta k˜lo’yam ˜gata× ||

This early morning ‘awakening’ of Vishnu or his incarnates from divine trance is a common practice in Vaishnavaite tradition, and is followed even today, called suprabhaata seva , morning service to wake up.

At the rising of the sun as well as at noon certain observances, invocations, and prayers were prescribed which might under no circumstances be omitted. One of these observances was the recitation of the Sávitri, [Gayatri, so to say,] a Vedic hymn to the Sun of wonderful beauty – Gorresio.

Sri Sita Rama Jeyam.
