Life History Of Tulsidas

In the past, Tulsidas was a great follower of Hanuman and Lord Rama. He was an originator of Ramcharitmanas, and great believer of Lord Rama.

He was born in 1589 in the Rajapur (Chitrakuta), which is a village on the banks of Yamuna river in the Uttar Pradesh. His parents were Atmaram Dubey and Hulsi.

Tulsidas was an unlucky child and has experience several problems and sorrows during the days of his childhood. Later he got married to Ratnavali. He loved his wife very much, and one day because of this he had to listen to severe words uttered by his wife saying, “that if Tulsidas was even half as dedicated to God as he was to her body of flesh and blood, he would have been rewarded of his suffering”. Tulsidas left her immediately and decided to dedicate his life in the worshipping of Lord Rama. He also got wisdom from the Guru Baba Narharidas.

He consumed most the time in the Chitrakoot, Ayodhya and Kashi. He composed several scriptures while roving from one place to the other. His compositions include: Janakimangal, Ramcharitmanas, Ktiwali, Geetawali, Vinayapatrika, Barve Ramayana, Hanuman Chalia, etc.

Tulsidas as a community guide

Tulsidas tried to eliminate the misconducts through his compositions. He used to censure the social issues which was prevailing in the country and addressed people about their negative effects. He made several attempts to raise up the exercise of true worshipping, defense of brahmins, and honor of the ancient scriptures.
