On hearing the wavery words of Dasharatha that are full of fond for his son, Vishvamitra wrathfully replied this sentence to the king. (1 21 1) "On promising me to fulfil my object in the first instance you wish to repudiate it now, undeserving is this kind of deviation for the kings of Raghava dynasty. (1 21 2) "If this is worth while to you, oh, king, I wish to go away as I have come, and you with your feigned promises be nonchalantly happy with your kinsmen." So said Vishvamitra to the king. (1 21 3) When that prudent sage Vishvamitra is thus enwrapped in fury, then the whole earth trembled and the Devas are scared. (1 21 4)

On knowing the appalled appearance of the entire world at the fury of Vishvamitra, Vashishta the great sage with high vows and an insightful one too, said these words to the king. (1 21 5) "Born in Ikshwaku dynasty you are apparently the other god of ethics on earth, a staunch one with righteous vows and a glorious one too, such as you are, it will be unapt of you to forsake ethics." (1 21 6) "In three worlds you are renowned as the right minded one, oh, Raghava, hence adhere to your own uprightness, and adhering to unrighteousness will be unapt of you. (1 21 7)

"Promising to effectuate something in any way and not effectuating the given word results in the perdition to the merits of Iatapurta Vedic rituals, hence oh, Raghava, leave hold of Rama. (1 21 8) "Whether Rama is trained in weaponry or not, Rakshasas cannot trounce Rama as long as Kushi s son Vishvamitra protects him, like the heavenly firewall that protects divine nectar. (1 21 9) "He is an embodiment of virtue, matchless among the venturesome, peerless in intellect among all in the world, and flawless in ascesis. (1 21 10)

"He is in the know how of various missiles, and no other person is there in the triad of worlds, inclusive of sessile and mobile worlds, who is knowledgeable about him, or someone who can know him will be there in future, excepting myself. (1 21 11) Devas" cannot know Vishvamitra, and anybody from sages no immortals no Rakshasas no the Gandharva s and eminent Yaksha s together with the Kinnara s and great Uragas no, they cannot know him. (1 21 12) "All the missiles known to Vishvamitra are the highly righteous children of Krishasva Prajapati, where Prajapati s were the earliest ruler of mankind, and god Shiva gave them to Vishvamitra when was ruling kingdom. (1 21 13)

"Those missiles are the sons of Daksha Prajapati s daughters and her husband Krishasva Prajapati, and they are disparate in their form, intrepid, dazzling, and victory oriented missiles. (1 21 14) Jaya" and Suprabha, the daughters of Daksha Prajapati, endowed with best waists gave birth to a hundred missiles and weaponry whose flare is supreme. (1 21 15) "On getting a boon Jaya named wife of Krishasva Prajapati is benefited with fifty best and formless sons with immeasurable fortitude for the destruction of ungodly beings. (1 21 16)

Suprabha", another wife of Krishasva Prajapati, gave birth to another fifty unassailable, unconquerable and mighty sons named the Eliminators. (1 21 17) "And this sage Vishvamitra is in the precise know of the said missiles, and this principled one is also capable of creating hitherto unavailable missiles. (1 21 18) "Thereby, oh, Raghava, nothing whatsoever is unknown to this great souled Vishvamitra, who is a distinguished sage and the knower of virtue, either that has happened or that is happening. (1 21 19) "Thus, the highly renowned and great resplendent sage Vishvamitra has this sort of enterprise, oh, king, allowing a doubt enter your mind in Rama s accompanying the sage will be unapt of you. (1 21 20)

"This son of Kushi, Vishvamitra, can as well control those Rakshasas by himself, but intending to accord beneficence to your son he approached you and imploring upon you. (1 21 21) Thus the prominent king from Raghu dynasty, namely Dasharatha, became serene minded by sage Vashishta s words, and he who is supreme among other kings and who has pronounced renown, that Dasharatha then gladly and wholeheartedly consented to the travel of Rama along with the sage Vishvamitra. (1 21 21)
