||Thou hast also listened to the instruction of the great Rishi Asita on the hills of Anjana; and thou becamest a disciple of Bhrigu on the banks of the Kalmashi.
||Here in the race of the celebrated elephant Supratika were born those best of elephants known by the names of Airavata, Vamana, Kumuda and Anjana, the first being the king of his tribe.
||Himself riding on an Airavata created by his powers of illusion, the other Dik-elephants, viz, Anjana, Vamana, and Mahapadma of blazing glory, followed him.
||This elephant division, consisting of a thousand elephants, that thou seest, all belonging to the breed known by the name of Anjana and all endued with great prowess, which are all mounted by a large number of Mlecchas, delighting in battle and accomplished in smiting, these elephants, O king, that are shedding their juicy secretions like rain-pouring clouds, these never retreat if urged forward by those upon their backs.
||Many foremost of elephants, huge as hills, and born of the race of Anjana or Vamana, O Bharata, or of other races, many foremost of tuskers, O king, lay there on the ground, deprived of life.
