| Chapter 3 : Birth of Lav and Kush|
would then often remember the day in Ayodhya when she first realised
that she was pregnant. She would remember how she was full of anxiety
. She kept the good news a secret from everyone till she could tell
it to her own husband ,Lord Rama. Alas! She got banished to the forest
soon after that, for no fault of hers.
On an auspicious day in the hermitage of Rishi Valmiki , SITA gives
birth to lovely twin boys. Rishi Valmiki names them as Lav and Kush.The
Sakhis celebrate this occasion.
|| Celebrations ||
SITAs sakhis (Lady friends):
Sita and Ramas twin children have arrived!!!
The brothers at birth copiously cried,
Do you know why? Because they are sorrowful,
Why have we been separated from the supreme consciousness
and born on earth as mortals? Is their hurt pride.
But when Mother Sita breast-fed them milk ,
She too is a manifestation of the supreme,
They realised and felt pacified.
The children are lotus- eyed,
And they see the forest beauty amazed,
The peacock dances in joy,
As Sita and Ramas twin children have arrived.
Their complexion is radiant,
They were born in yogic composure,
Even birds are chirping in happiness,
For the children are the protectors,
Of Dharma (Duty) and nature.
