Amidst a hall full of bhaktas roaring Raja Ramchandramurthi ki Jai, the pattabhishekam of Sri RajaRam was conducted. An elephant was waiting at the door for Ram Parivar to alight, and hundreds of bhaktas led by Sri Swamiji sang in praise of Bhagavan Sri Ram through the streets of Sri Chitrakoot Paavan Dhaam.

Thirumanjanam was performed to Ram Parivar as Bhagavatas sang in unison. Bhagavan, accompanied by Sri Swamiji, walked down the ghats of Chitrakoot and had a holy dip in sacred Mandakini, and were showered by punya teertha from the Kalashas of the grand Navaham. As bhaktas beheld this most fortunate darshan with tears of joy in their eyes, they raised Jai goshas, ‘Raja Ram ki Jai, Sitaram ki Jai, Sadgurunath Maharaj ki Jai, Bharat Mata ki Jai’, which reverberated across the hills and ghats of Chitrakoot. The grand Navaham came to a poorthi, with Bhagavan being welcomed back into Sri Sridhar Dhaam. Bhaktas partook teertham and departed, longing for the next blissful satsang with Sri Swamji.

Jai Siya Ram! Jai Hanuman! Jai Chitrakoot Dhaam! Jai Sadguru!

The teertha here, called Hanuman Dhara are the tears shed by Hanumanji as he recounted the compassion of Bhagavan. The water tastes as sweet as honey.

Next, the devotees proceeded to worship Ram shayya Sthal – a huge rock which has the imprints of Lord Sri Rama in resting posture.

Following this, a visit to Ramghat was the most cherished conclusion to the day. Ramghat is the exact spot where Sant Tulsidas was graced with the darshan of Lord Rama and Sri Lakshmana who appeared as two small boys. The recognition that it was the Lord Himself who had arrived, was indicated to Sant Tulsidas by Hanuman ji who appeared with a parrot-like face. Bhagavan applied tilak with the Gopi chandan paste that Sant Tulsidas had devotedly prepared. A sannidhi for Tulsidas and Sri Totamukhi Hanuman is situated here.
