Even though Rama is elder to Lakshmana he gleaned the ultimate tenor of Lakshmana s words when Lakshmana just said them expediently because Raghava is a best gleaner of the gist of advises. (3 67 1)

Such as he is that dextrous Rama on controlling his highly heightening fury, propping against his bedazzling bow spoke this to Lakshmana. (3 67 2) "What is to be done by us, oh, dear boy… or, whereto we might go, or, by which device Seetha is discernable… Lakshmana, now you think of it, clearly… (3 67 3) To such a Rama who is tormented by anguish, Lakshmana said, "it will be apt of you to search this Janasthana alone which is rife with many Rakshasas, and replete with manifold trees and climber plants… (3 67 4)

"Here there are unclimbable mountains, glens and glyphs as well. There are divers and pernicious caverns tumultuous with diverse packs of predators, and here are the mansions of Kinnara s and palaces of Gandharva s, as well… (3 67 5b, 6) "It will be apt of you to steadfastly search in them along with me, and oh, best one among men, your sort of literati and clever souls will be unfluctuating in calamities like the mountains unfluctuating in windstorms…" Lakshmana said so Rama. (3 67 6, 7, 8a) When Lakshmana said in this way to that ireful Rama, he roved entire forest along with Lakshmana readying a crescent shaped razor sharp deadly arrow on his bow. (3 67 8b, 9a) Then Rama beheld Jatayu who is akin to a mountaintop in his gleam, and a best beatific brave bird among all the Birds, but bloodstained and buckling on earth. (3 67 9b, 10a)

On beholding him who is like a mountaintop in his gleam, Rama said to Lakshmana, "This one has gluttonised Seetha, the princess from Vaidehi, there is no doubt about it… (3 67 10b, 11a) "It is apparent that this Rakshasa skulks in the forest in the semblance of an eagle, and having gluttonised that wide eyed Seetha he is now reposing comfortably. I will eliminate him with deadly arrows, whose arrowheads blaze away and which shoot off straightly…" Thus Rama declared. (3 67 11b, 12) On saying thus and on readying a crescent shaped razor sharp deadly arrow on his bow, that ireful Rama rushed towards the eagle, as though to a tremble the whole of the earth that which is within the perimeter of oceans. (3 67 13)

But that bird spewing up frothy blood pathetically appealed to such an ireful son of Dasharatha, namely Rama, in a pathetic tone. (3 67 14) "Oh, boy Rama, blest is your eternality, for whom you are searching as with the search of a rejuvenescent herb in the vast of forest, Ravana stole that lady and my lives, too… (3 67 15) "I have seen that lady while being stolen by brute forced Ravana when you and even Lakshmana absented from her… (3 67 16)

"I outreached to rescue Seetha… and in a combat Ravana is rendered as one with utterly battered chariot… and I felled him and that chariot there… onto earth s surface… (3 67 17) "This one is his fragmented bow and this is his fragmented armour… oh, Rama, this is his combat chariot… which, in combat shattered by me… (3 67 18) "This is his charioteer drop dead onto earth by my wings… when I am overtired Ravana gashed my wings and flew skyward taking Seetha of Videha kingdom with him, and it will be inapt of you to kill me who am already killed by the Rakshasa…" Thus Jatayu appealed to Rama. (3 67 19, 20) Rama jettisoned his forceful bow when he heard the much desired news about Seetha while hugging that kingly eagle Jatayu. (3 67 21)

Even though Rama is comparatively a bold person he involuntarily fell down to ground, as the onefold scorch of anguish for Seetha is doubled by this predicament of Jatayu, and he wept over Jatayu. (3 67 22) Jatayu is supine on a single strait passable for a single person and he is suspiring for several times, and on seeing such Jatayu Rama became anguished and spoke this to Soumitri. (3 67 23) "Mislaid is my kingdom and I am mislocated into forests, Seetha is misplaced and now this mischance of death on this bird… this kind of misfortune of mine incinerates even Agni, the Divine Incinerator… (3 67 24)

"Even if it were to be a plethoric and limitless ocean, and now if I were to enter it, or take a swim to the other shore of blissfulness, even that Lord of Rivers runs completely dry, owing to my misfortune, it is definite… (3 67 25) "There will not be any greater unfortunate being in this world than me, even if all the sessile and mobile beings are put together, by whom such a complicated catastrophic enmeshment as this is derived… (3 67 26) "This decrepit kingly eagle is the friend of my father who is terminally gashed and recumbent on the floor owing only to the backlash of my fortune…" So lamented Rama for the wounded eagle Jatayu. (3 67 27)

Thus, lamenting in that way for many times Raghava patted the body of Jatayu along with Lakshmana instancing his parental regard. (3 67 28) On hugging that kingly eagle whose wings are hacked off and who is bloodstained, and on uttering this much, "she who is identical with my lives,… where is that Maithili…" Rama collapsed to earth. (3 67 29)
