He started to live in his family home and narrating the story of Ramayana.
Marriage history He got married to the Ratnavali the daughter of Dinbandhu Pathak of Mahewa village and Kaushambi district at the 13th day of the Jyeshta month May or June in the year After some years of the marriage he got a son named Tarak who died in his toddler state. When he returned home and did not saw his wife, he swam a long River Yamuna in order to meet his wife. Ratnavali was very upset with his activity and blamed him.
She remarked that devote yourself to the God fully. He then left her wife and went to the holy city of Prayag where he renounced the stages of Grihastha life and became a Sadhu. According to the some authors, he was unmarried and Sadhu from the birth. Then, the Hanuman blessed him a lot. Tulsidas had expressed his feeling in front of Hanuman that he want to see Rama confronting each other. Hanuman guided him and told that go to the Chitrakuta where you would really see the Rama.
How he meet to the Rama After getting instructed with the Hanuman, he pursued the instructions of Hanuman and started to live in the Ashram at Ramghat in Chitrakuta. One day when he went for making the Parikrama of the Kamadgiri Mountain, he saw the two princes on the horsebacks. But he could not distinguish them.
Later when he acknowledged that they were Rama and Lakshman by the Hanuman, he got disappointed. All these events are described by himself in his writing Gitavali.
On the next morning, he met Rama again when he was making sandalwood paste. Rama came to him and asked for a Tilaka with sandalwood paste, in this way he had a full sight of the Rama.
In the Vinayapatrika, Tulsidas had mentioned the miracles at Chitrakuta and lot of thanks to the Rama. He got darshan of the Yajnavalkya speaker and Bharadvaja listener in the Magha Mela under a banyan tree.
He then started to compose poetry in the Sanskrit at the listener in the Varanasi. It is considered that Lord Shiva himself had ordered him to compose his poetry in the vernacular language instead of the Sanskrit.
When Tulsidas opened his eyes, he saw that both Shiva and Parvati had blessed him. He ordered to go to Ayodhya and write his poetry in the Awadhi. Composition of the Epic, Ramcharitmanas He started to write the Ramcharitmanas in Ayodhya on the Ramnavami of the Chaitra month in the year He completed his writing of the Ramcharitmanas in two years, seven months and twenty six days in the year at the Vivaha Panchami marriage day of the Rama and Sita of the month Margashirsha. His other major works Apart from the Ramcharitmanas, there are the five major works of the Tulsidas which are: Dohavali: It has the collection of at least miscellaneous Doha and Sortha in Braja and Awadhi.
Out of all around 85 Dohas of it is also included in the Ramcharitmanas. Kavitavali: It has the collection of Kavittas in Braja. Just like the epic, Ramcharitmanas, it is also has seven books and many episodes.
Gitavali: It has the collection of Braja songs divided into seven books and all are of Hindustani classical music type.
Out of the 61, 32 songs are dedicated to the childhood and Rasa Lila of the Krishna. Vinaya Patrika: It has the collection of Braja stanzas.
His minor works are: Barvai Ramayana: It has 69 verses created in the Barvai metre and divided into seven Kands. Janaki Mangal: It has the collection of verses describing the marriage of Sita and Rama in the Awadhi.
Ramalala Nahachhu: It described the Nahachhu ritual cutting the nails of the feet before the Vivaha of the child Rama in the Awadhi. In the meanwhile, King Janaka arranges a swayamvara ceremony for his daughter Sita. A swayamvara ceremony is a Vedic ritual in which a prospective bride selects her groom from among a group of suitors who attend the ceremony.
Sita falls in love with Rama at first sight in Janaka 's garden and prays to Parvati that she may get Rama as her husband. Janaka puts a condition to identify the right groom for Sita; the great bow of Shiva by the name of Pinaka was kept in the arena.
Any suitor who would be able to string Pinaka would be married to Sita. Many princes try but fail to even nudge the mammoth bow; this causes great distress to Janaka who wonders aloud if the earth has become devoid of brave men. This statement of Janaka angers Lakshman who retorts that no one talks in this vein, when a gathering like this, has the presence of scions of the Sun Dynasty. Rama gently nudges him to keep calm as Vishwamitra asks him to break the bow and make Janaka happy once again.
Rama steps in and effortlessly lifts and strings the divine bow. In a swift move, he breaks the bow; the breaking of Pinaka causes a great noise that disturbs the great sage Parashurama in his meditation and he storms into the swayamvara arena in great anger vowing to kill whoever had dared to break the bow of lord Shiva.
Lakshman enters into an argument with Parashurama , paying scant respect to the sage who was known for his bursts of anger and was known to slay whoever dared to oppose him.
Ultimately, Rama brings him around. Parashurama comes to know the real nature of Lord Rama as the ultimate Brahman , pays his respects and leaves for the forests for meditation. Sita places the wreath of victory around the neck of Rama in accordance with the rules of the swayamvara and is thus wedded to him. However, Sita being his beloved daughter, Janaka desires to conduct a grand marriage of Sita and Rama in accordance with both Vedic and laukik traditional customs.
Janaka dispatches messengers to Ayodhya to inform Dasharatha and his family about the marriage of Rama and Sita and invites them for the formal consummation of marriage ceremony. Dasharatha starts with a great marriage procession, consisting of Rama's family, friends and well wishers in addition to Shiva, Brahma and all Devas who take up human form and depart for Mithila. After a grand wedding, the kind of which had never been witnessed in the universe, Rama and Sita return to Ayodhya where there was a great celebration and much rejoicing.
He decided to start the ceremonies for his coronation the very next day; the Devas however became very concerned at the prospect of Rama remaining in Ayodhya and not pursuing the wicked Ravana, and vanquishing him.
Something had to happen if Rama was to embark on his mission to rid the world of Ravana , they approached Goddess Saraswati for help. King Dasharatha has three wives. Queen Kaushalya is the principal queen and the mother of Rama. Saraswati decides to influence the mind of one of Queen Kaikeyi 's maid servants named Manthara.
Manthara 's mind harbors evil intentions and she begins to talk to Queen Kaikeyi in harsh and conceited tones, she finds fault with Kaikeyi for being supportive of the king's plan of installing Rama, as Prince Regent when her own mind tells her that Bharata would clearly be a greater king. At that time Bharata is in Kaikeya country visiting his uncle and so he is unaware of what is happening in Ayodhya.
Slowly Queen Kaikeyi 's mind is poisoned. Manthara reminds Queen Kaikeyi of the two boons that the King had promised her. Kaikeyi enters the private room in the royal palace, where the King gives audience to his queens and awaits Dasharatha. Dasharatha is greatly alarmed and concerned that Kaikeyi is sitting in the sulking chamber, while the entire population of Ayodhya is greatly happy and eagerly anticipating the coronation of Rama.
Queen Kaikeyi speaks harshly to Dasharatha, which surprises the king, she reminds him of the two boons he promised her and to his bewilderment, asks him to install her son Bharata as Prince Regent and send Rama into the forest for 14 years. Queen Kaikeyi is unmoved by Dasharatha's lamentations and finally the king emotionally breaks down; the king's assistant Sumantra sends for Rama with a request to meet his father.
Queen Kaikeyi speaks to Rama and explains to him the boons that she had asked of His father. Rama is actually the Supreme Personality of Godhead incarnated on earth, yet He accepts His stepmother's request and decides to leave the kingdom as it serves his purpose as well; the people of Ayodhya remonstrate against Queen Kaikeyi who firmly believes that she is doing the right thing. Rama attempts to dissuade Lakshman and Sita from joining him but is unable to do so; the scene becomes very emotional as Rama, Sita and Lakshman greet their mothers before finally going to Dashratha to take leave of him.
Dasharatha attempts, in vain, to try to talk Sita out of joining Rama in the forest. The residents of Ayodhya can't spare the thought of being away from Rama and decide to join him in the forest. Rama, Sita, Lakshman and Sumantra go incognito and in the dead of the night leave the city and move into the forest , they leave for a place called Sringaverapur after which they meet Guha, the Nishad king.
Rama meets with the Sage Bharadwaj at his ashram. Rama is overwhelmed with the reception and love shown by the people inhabiting the banks of the Yamuna. Rama then meets Sage Valmiki , the author of the Ramayan at Chitrakoot dham.
Valmiki recognises the true opulence of Rama and sings His praises. At this point Tulsidas takes great care to describe the beauty of the land of Chitrakoot with some inspiring poetry. Rama asks Sumantra to return to Ayodhya which saddens Sumantra, he not only wants to stay with Rama, he is also afraid of going back only to face the anger and wrath of the citizens of Ayodhya. Rama persuades him to go back. On returning to Ayodhya , Sumantra meets Dasharatha, who asks him the whereabouts of Rama; the pain of separation from Rama is too much for Dasharatha who passes away crying Rama's name.
Sage Vashishtha knows that Rama will not return to the kingdom and so immediately sends an envoy to call Bharata and Shatrughna back to Ayodhya. Bharata learns of all that has happened and chastises his mother, Queen Kaikeyi , he is greatly pained and blames himself for Rama leaving Ayodhya.
He accuses her of bringing ruin to the family. Shatrughna comes across Manthara and beats her in rage, they approach Queen Kaushalya and see her in a sorry state. Bharata begs for her forgiveness and loudly laments while the Queen attempts to pacify him, she asks him to carry out his duty and rule Ayodhya , but Bharata cannot bear the thought of sitting on the throne with his father dead and his brothers in exile in the forest.
The cremation of King Dasharatha takes place. Bharata and Shatrughna decide to go into the forest and ask Rama to return to Ayodhya and take the throne.
