Sunderkand Ki Chaupai

Sunderkand Ki Chaupai

Sunderkand, the fifth book of Ramcharitmanas by Goswami Tulsidas, is a significant part of the epic. Sundarkand comprises a total of 58 chaupais (quatrains). These chaupai show Hanumanji's bravery and his strong devotion to Lord Ram. Sunderkand is especially important because it narrates Hanumanji's journey to Lanka, his search for Sita Ji, and his encounter with Ravana.

myNachiketa presents eight 'Sunderkand ki chaupai' for children, with simple meanings and impactful messages. These chaupai beautifully portray Hanumanji's selfless love for Lord Ram. They inspire us to dedicate our lives to our God just like Hanumanji did.

Sunderkand Ki Chaupai 1

1. Chaupai

प्रबिसि नगर कीजे सब काजा। हृदयँ राखि कोसलपुर राजा॥

गरल सुधा रिपु करहिं मिताई। गोपद सिंधु अनल सितलाई॥

Prabisi nagar kije sab kaja. Hriday rakhi Kosalpur raja.

Garal sudha ripu karahi mitai. Gopad sindhu anal sitlai.


In this verse from the Sunderakanda, the gatekeeper of Lanka tells Hanuman that by keeping the king of Ayodhya, Lord Rama, in his heart, he enters Lanka and accomplishes all his tasks. Those who meditate on Lord Rama find that poison turns into nectar, enemies become friends, the depths of the ocean are reduced and fire becomes cool.


When we remember God in all our actions, we achieve success.

2. Chaupai

रामचंद्र गुन बरनैं लागा। सुनतहिं सीता कर दुख भागा॥

लागीं सुनैं श्रवन मन लाई। आदिहु तें सब कथा सुनाई॥

Ramachandra gun barnai laga. Sunat hi Sita kar dukh bhaga.

Lagi sunai shravan man lai. Adihu te sab katha sunai.


In this verse from the Sunderakanda, Hanumanji describes the virtues of Lord Ram. Upon hearing this, Sita Mata’s sorrow disappeared. Sita Mata listens to the praise of Lord Rama with devotion. Hanumanji narrates the entire story from beginning to end.


We should listen to the stories of great personalities from our teachers and parents so that our knowledge grows, and we are inspired to do good deeds in life.

3. Chaupai

धरइ जो बिबिध देह सुरत्राता। तुम्ह से सठन्ह सिखावनु दाता॥

हर कोदंड कठिन जेहिं भंजा। तेहि समेत नृप दल मद गंजा॥

Dharai jo bibidh deh surtrata. Tumh se sathanh sikhavanu data.

Har kodand kathin jehin bhanja. Tehi samet nrip dal mad ganja.


In this verse from the Sunderakanda, Hanumanji praises Lord Ram while speaking to Ravan. He says that Lord Ram takes form to protect good people and teach a lesson to the ignorant like Ravan. Lord Ram, who broke the mighty bow of Shiva, also shattered the pride of many kings.


God always supports those who are true and good and punishes those who do wrong. Therefore, we should always walk on the path of truth.


Sunderkand Ki Chaupai 4

4. Chaupai

राम बिमुख संपति प्रभुताई। जाइ रही पाई बिनु पाई॥

सजल मूल जिन्ह सरितन्ह नाहीं। बरषि गएँ पुनि तबहिं सुखाहीं

Ram bimukh sampati prabhutai. Jai rahi pai binu pai.

Sajal mool jinh saritanh nahin. Barashi gaen puni tabahim sukhahin.


In this verse from the Sunderakanda, it is said that those who turn away from Lord Rama (and move towards evil) lose their wealth and honour, and whatever they gain holds no value. Just like rivers without a constant source dry up soon after the rains are over.


If we keep our faith in God, our good qualities will never diminish, and we will be successful in all our work.

उलटि पलटि लंका सब जारी। कूदि परा पुनि सिंधु मझारी॥

Ulati palati Lanka sab jari. Koodi para puni Sindhu majhari.

8. Chaupai

निर्मल मन जन सो मोहि पावा। मोहि कपट छल छिद्र न भावा॥

भेद लेन पठवा दससीसा। तबहुँ न कछु भय हानि कपीसा॥

Bhed len pathava Dasisa. Tabahun na kachu bhay hani Kapisa.


In this verse from the Sunderakanda, Lord Ram tells Sugriva that only those with a pure heart can truly know Him. He does not favour those who are dishonest or cunning. Even if Ravan has sent Vibhishan to spy on them, they have nothing to fear or lose.


To attain God, we must remove all negative emotions from our hearts. We should not lie, get angry at others, or wish bad for anyone.

जदपि कही कपि अति हित बानी। भगति बिबेक बिरति नय सानी॥

बोला बिहसि महा अभिमानी। मिला हमहि कपि गुर बड़ ग्यानी॥
