Raam Charit Maanas | 7-Uttar Kaand
|6-Vashishth Jee and Naarad Jee|
Once Vashishth Jee came to Shree Raam. Shree Raam respected him properly and offered him Aasan to sit upon. Vashishth Jee said - "Hey Raam, I am very confused seeing your human Leelaa (acting). There is no limit of your glory. Even Ved also do not know it fully, then how can I know it? Purohit profession is a very low profession. All - Ved, Puraan and Smriti - have bad opinion about it. When I was not taking this job (Purohit job of Soorya Vansh), then Brahmaa Jee said to me - "Accept it. You will be benefited from it in future. Brahm Himself will incarnate in this Vansh (family). I thought that for whom people do Yagya, Yog, Vrat and alms, still cannot get Him, if I can get Him from this profession then there is no other Dharm like this.
Whatsoever Dharm are told in scriptures - Jap, Tap, discipline, Yog, Dharm, Gyaan, kindness etc etc - are only the means to get You. As dirt cannot remove dirt, butter cannot be taken out of churning water, in the same way the heart of a human being can only be clean only through Your Bhakti. Only he is the knower of all, Gyaanee, qualitative, and intelligent. Hey Naath, today I ask you a Var, that my love to your feet should not reduce at all for lives together."
After saying this Vashishth Jee went away to his home and Shree Raam went outside the city where there were many elephants, horses and chariots. Raghunaath Jee distributed them to various people and came to a mango grove and sat there with His brothers. The then Naarad Jee came with His Veenaa and started singing Prabhu's glory. After that he also went away to His Lok.
