Bhaye prakat kripala – A hindi Bhajan detailing birth of lord Rama

Bhaye prakat kripala – A hindi Bhajan   detailing  birth of lord Rama

Sant  Thulasidas

Translated by

(This famous  Hindi bhajan describes  how Rama at birth appeared like Lord Vishnu   to his mother Kausalya and who how he assumed the form of a human baby at her request .In Valmiki Ramayana , Rama is only born as a human baby and this is not there.However in Adhyatma  Ramayana , this scene is very much there.Since Saint Thulasidas   wrote   in Awadhi dialect  of Hindi, it was extremely difficult to translate  .I   took   the help of a translation  in acknowlwdgement to that   web site . You can hear it sung  by Narendra Chanchal  by clicking   )
भये प्रगट कृपाला दीनदयाला कौसल्या हितकारी .
हरषित महतारी मुनि मन हारी अद्भुत रूप बिचारी ..
लोचन अभिरामा तनु घनस्यामा निज आयुध भुज चारी .
भूषन वनमाला नयन बिसाला सोभासिन्धु खरारी ..

Bhaye prakat kripala dindayala kausalya hitkari
Harshit mahatari muni man haari adbhut roop bichari
Lochan abhirama tanu ghanshyama nij aayudha bhuj chaari
Bhushan vanamala nayan bisala sobhasindhu kharari

THe lord   who exhibits his mercy  and  compassion  to the suffering  , appeared before Kausalya ,
And she was gladdened  on seeing him   who stole the heart of sages  and thought   about his great form,
As he had  ever pretty eyes, was having  a dark black body and held  weapons in four hands,
And  also that killer of Khara Wore a  forest garland  , had broad eyes, was an  ocean of beauty .

कह दुइ कर जोरी अस्तुति तोरी केहि बिधि करौं अनंता .
माया गुन ग्यानातीत अमाना वेद पुरान भनंता ..
करुना सुख सागर सब गुन आगर जेहि गावहिं श्रुति संता .
सो मम हित लागी जन अनुरागी भयौ प्रकट श्रीकंता ..

Kah dui kara jori astuti tori kehi bidhi karaun ananta
Maya gungyaanateet amaana vedpuraan bhavanta
Karuna sukh sagar sab gun gaagar jehi gaavahi shruti santa
So mama hita laagi jana anuragi bhayo prakat shrikanta

She saluted him joining her palms  , sang his praise and asked him “ Oh lord of infinite  and endless mercy, how do I praise you,
AS the Vedas  and puranas say  that  you are beyond Maya, beyond  all    the attributes   and knowledge  and you are  immesurable ,
You are ocean of  joy and mercy  ,  the collection of all good virtues  and that you are praised by all Vedas   and sages,
And for the   sake of  pleasing  me , Oh  Lord of Lakshmi , you have  appeared  before me.

ब्रह्मांड निकाया निर्मित माया रोम रोम प्रति बेद कहै .
मम उर सो बासी यह उपहासी सुनत धीर मति थिर रहै ..
उपजा जब ग्याना प्रभु मुसुकाना चरित बहुत बिधि कीन्ह चहै .
कहि कथा सुहाई मातु बुझाई जेहि प्रकार सुत प्रेम लहै ..

Bramhand nikaya nirmit maya rom rom prati bed kahai
Mama ur so baasi yeh upahaasi sunat dheer mati thir na rahai
Upaja jab gyaana prabhu muskaanaa charti bahut bidhi keenha chahai
Kahi katha sunayi maatu bujhayi jehi prakaar suta prem lahai

The Vedas say that  you create   body of the  universe  from every pore of the hair by the power of your Maya
Even wise men  , on hearing that  you lived in  my  womb   would find it  difficult to believe,
And  when this thought   came to the mother  the  Lord smiled and told her  that  as sports  he does  diverse  acts.
And he   told her    joyful stories so that she would   start loving him like a child.

माता पुनि बोली सो मति डोली तजहु तात यह रूपा .
कीजे सिसुलीला अति प्रियसीला यह सुख परम अनूपा ..
सुनि बचन सुजाना रोदन ठाना होइ बालक सुरभूपा .
यह चरित जे गावहि हरिपद पावहि ते परहिं भवकूपा ..

Maata puni boli so mati doli tajahu taat yeh roopa
Keeje sishuleela ati priyaseela yeh sukh param anoopa
Suni bachana sujaana rodna thaana hoyi baalak sura bhoopa
Yeh charit jegavahi haripad paavahi te hina parahi bhavakoopa

On hearing it the mother’s mind changed   and   the  lord gave up the form he had assumed,
And she requested him to do   baby like acts   and  became very dear to her   and give her great happiness,
On hearing these   words the all knowing lord   left being  an immortal lord   and started  crying  like a child.
The one who sings this story  would witness  the  feet of Lord Vishnu  and  would never fall back in to the birth- death cycle
