ashokavatika men hanuman ki sita ji se bhent

ashokavatika prachin rajaon ke bhavan ke samip ki vishesh vatika kahalati thi. isaka ek doosara nam 'pramadavan' bhi tha. valmiki ramayan ke anusar lnka men sthit ek sundar udyan tha jisamen ravan ne sita ko bndi banakar rakha tha-

'ashokavanikamadhye maithilin niyatamiti,
tatreyn rakshyatan goodhn yushmabhi: parivarita.'[1]

arany kand[2] se gyat hota hai ki ravan pahale sita ko apane raj prasad men laya tha aur vahin rakhana chahata tha. kintu sita ki adigata tatha apane prati usaka tiraskarabhav dekhakar use dhire-dhire mana lene ke lie prasad se kuchh door ashokavatika men kaid kar diya tha. sundar kand[3] men ashokavatika ka sundar varnan hai-

'tan nagairvividhairjushtan sarvapushpaphalopagai:,
vritan pushkarinibhishch nanapushpopashobhitamh.
sada mattaishch vihagairvichitran paramadbhutai: eehamrigaishch vividhairvrita drishtimanoharai:.
vithi: snprekshamanashch manikanchanatoranamh nanamrigaganakirnan phalai: prapatitairvritamh,
ashokavanikamev pravivashatsntatadrumamh.'[4]

adhyatm ramayan men bhi sita ka ashokavanika ya ashokavipin men rakhe jane ka ullekh hai-

'svant:pure rahasye tamashokavipine kshipath,
rakshasibhi: parivritan matribuddhayanvapalayath.'[5]

valmiki ne sundar kand[6] men hanuman dvara ashokavatika ke ujade jane ka varnan hai-

'itinishchity manasa vrikshakhndanmahabal:,
utpatyashokavanikan nivrikshamakaroth kshanath.'[7]

ashokavatika men hanuman ne sal, ashok, chnpak, uddalak, nang, amr tatha kapimukh namak vrikshon ko dekha tha. unhonne ek shisham ke vriksh par chadh kar pratham bar sita ko dekha tha-

'supushpitagranaruchiranstarunankurapallavanh,
tamaruhy mahaveg: shinshapaparnasnvritamh.[8]

isi vriksh ke niche unhonne sita se bhent ki thi.[9][10]
