||And Syeni, the wife of Aruna, gave birth to two sons of great energy and strength, named Sampati and the mighty Jatayu.
||Then a mighty vulture Sampati by name, communicated the tidings that Sita was in the abode of Ravana.
||SECTION CCLXXVII Markandeya said, That heroic king of the vultures, Jatayu, having Sampati for his uterine brother and Arjuna himself for his father, was a friend of Dasaratha.
||I am his elder brother, by name Sampati, and am the king of birds.
||And, O king, the powerful Sampati heating this unpleasant news from us, was greatly afflicted and again enquired of us, saying, Who is this Rama and why was Sita carried off and how was Jatayu slain?
||In the tail stood Vikartana's son Karna, with his sons, kinsmen and friends, and surrounded by a large force raised from diverse realms, Jayadratha, and Bhimaratha, and Sampati, and the Jays, and the Bhojas, and Bhuminjaya, and Vrisha, and Kratha, and the mighty ruler of the Nishadhas, all accomplished in battle, surrounded by a large host and keeping the region of Brahma before their eyes, stood, O king, in the heart of that array.
