Then, on staying that night there in Tataka forest, on the next day morning the greatly renowned sage Vishvamitra, smilingly and wording sweetly spoke to Rama. (1 27 1) "I am highly pleased with you, oh, illustrious prince Rama, let safety be with you, I will now give you all of the divine missiles in utmost fondness of mine. (1 27 2)

(1 27 11b, 12a)

"I will be giving all those weapons that are wielded by Rakshasas, namely the deadly Pounder named Kankaalam, and Rods named as Kapaalam and Kankanam, for the elimination of those very Rakshasas. (1 27 12b, 13a) "Oh, mighty armed son of the best king, I am giving a great missile named Vaidyadhara by its name, and a gem of sword named Nandana. (1 27 13b, 14a) "Thus, the missile which is very much liked by Gandharva s, namely Mohana, (The Stupefier,) the missile called Prasvapana (The Inducer of Sleep,) and the gentle Prashamana, (The Pacifier of enemy s anger.)

"Oh, highly fortunate Rama, takes these missiles namely, varshaNa, (the Rainer,) shoshana (the Drainer,) santaapana (the Humidifier,) vilaapana (the Weep inducer,) and oh, prince, an unassailable intoxicator and a dear missile of Manmatha, namely Mohana (The Intoxicator,) and another the fond missile of Gandharva s namely Manava by its name, (The Humane missile,) and oh, tigerly man, a missile dear one to Pishaaca s, monsters, namely paishaca (The Monster missile.) (1 27 15, 16, 17) "Oh, manly tiger Rama, greatly powered taamasa and saumana missiles, the indomitable missiles like samvarta, mausala, satya, and then the maaya maya missile like that oh, mighty armed Rama, a solar missile the sequestrator of others brilliance namely teja prabha next, the missile of Moon god named shishira (The Cooler) and a very deadly missile of tvaSTa namely sudaamana and even the dangerous missile of bhaga namely shita isu, these and the Manava missile of Manu, the earliest ruler of mankind, I will be giving. (1 27 17b, 18, 19, 20) "These missiles are, oh, dextrous prince, disguise wizards, greatly powered, and highly providential ones, oh, Rama, you may take them forthwith." So said sage Vishvamitra to Rama. (1 27 21)

That pre eminent sage Vishvamitra on performing his personal holy depuration then gave the assortment of extraordinary hymns to Rama facing eastward. (1 27 22) The comprehension of which invoking hymns of the missiles is impossible even to Devas with their sections and subsections of procedures, that Brahman dedicated such hymns to Raghava. (1 27 24) While that intelligent saint Vishvamitra chanted the hymns, all of those highly venerable missiles came nigh and stood accessible to Raghava in their astral form. (1 27 24) All of those highly obliging missiles in astral bodies, gladdening to come under the aegis of Rama, then spoke to him making palms fold, "here are your thralls, Sire, we are here to accomplish whatever you bid us to do, let safety be with you." So said the deities presiding over the missiles to Rama. (1 27 25)

On receiving them with a pleased heart, then Rama patted them with his palm, and that Rama of Kakutstha s also spoke this way to those mightily forceful missiles in ethereal bodies saying, "you may manifest yourselves in my cognisance whenever I need you," and he motivated them to take leave and to come back at his beck and call. (1 27 26b, 27) That highly resplendent Rama revered sage Vishvamitra with a thankful heart and readied himself for further journey. (1 27 26)
