Uttararamacharitam [Contd. Post 11]

रामः – शान्तम् /

उत्पत्तिपरिपूतायाः किमस्याः पावनान्तरैः / तीर्थोदकं च वह्निश्च नान्यतः शुद्धिमर्हतः // १३ //

देवि देवयजनसंभवे / प्रसीद / एष ते जीवितावधिः प्रणामः /

कष्टो जनः कुलधनैरनुरञ्जनीयस्तन्मे यदुक्तम् अशिवं न हि तत् क्षमं ते / नैसर्गिकी सुरभिणः कुसुमस्य सिद्धा मूर्ध्नि स्थितिर्न चरणैरवताडितम् // १४ //

RAMA: Shh! Quiet!

The waters of the sacred rivers and the fire that purify need no further purification. For one whose birth is in itself blemishless, where is the need to prove their purity through rituals? 

My dear! Blessed one! Do keep up your spirits. Allow me to say this: To protect the wealth of family honour that is at stake, we have to pay heed to the society’s dicta.  You do not merit the harsh words I spoke to you then – a flower with natural fragrance deserves to be placed on the head, not kicked with the foot.

सीता – भवतु आर्यपुत्र भवतु / एहि प्रेक्षामहे तावत् ते चरितम् /

(उत्थाय परिक्रामतः)

sIthA: bhavathu Aryaputhra bhavathu /  Ehi prEkSHAmahE thAvath thE charitham /

(uthTHAya parikrAmathaha)

SITA: It is all right, my Lord, it’s all right. Come now, let’s see the (pictorial) narration of your story.

(Everyone gets up and walks around the stage)

लक्ष्मणः – इदं तद् आलेख्यम् /

lakshmaNaha: idham thadh Alekhyam /

LAKSHMANA: Here is the painting!

सीता – (निर्वर्ण्य) क इदानीमेते उपरि निरन्तरस्थिता उपस्तुवन्ति इवार्यपुत्रम् /

sIthA: (nirvarnya) ka idhAnImEthE upari nirantharasTHithA upasthuvanthi ivAryaputhram I

SITA: (Looking at the painting) Who are these people standing in a group, surveying my husband from above? They seem to be extolling him, worshipping him.
