When the great souled Lakshmana spoke to Sugreeva in this way, Sugreeva spoke this word to Hanuma who is available at his side. (4 37 1) "Convoke the Vanara s available on the summits of these five mountains, namely Mountain Mahendra, Mountain Himalaya, Mountain Vindhya, and Mountain Kailasa and those that are on the whitish peak of Mountain Mandara. As well as those that are on the mountains at seashore, udaya adri, namely sunrise mountain, which mountains will always be dazzling with the tinge of youthful sun. And them that are on the mountains which shine in the ochry hue of evening clouds, asta adri, namely sunset mountain and which mountains are situated at the Palace of Sun. And the catastrophic Vanara chiefs that are abiding in the palm groves of Mountain Padma. Also thus, the fly jumpers who are similar to black mascara and black clouds in their shine, and who match Elephants in their vigour, and who live on Mountain Anjana, they too are to be convened. Those fly jumpers whose complexion will be golden and dwell in the caves of Great Mountain, besides those who are on the mountainsides of Mountain Meru, and those biding on the Black Red mountain, along with those topmost speeded fly jumpers living on Mountain Great Ochre swilling palm toddy, these are to be summoned. Further, the vanara s who will be in the tinge of rising sun and who dwell in the highly delightful, richly fragrant and lofty woodlands that are surrounded with the delightful hermitages of sages
e to be summoned. Along with them, the vanara s who are in the interiors of forests, they are also to be called for. Why citing a few? Those and those Vanaras that are on the earth, all of them are to be assembled. Oh, Hanuma, you quickly summon all of the topmost speeded vanara s by employing concessions, conciliations and the like procedures. (4 37 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

"In the first instance highly speedy vanara s are hastened at my commanded, however, you hasten some more Vanara chiefs for the purpose of hastening them. (4 37 10) "Those that are entangled with creature comforts, and those that are stringy dawdlers, you quickly lead all of those Vanara chiefs in here. (4 37 11) "And such of those vanara s that do not arrive within ten days by my command, those miscreants are eliminable as the abusers of king s decree. (4 37 12) "Let all the lionly Vanaras available on earth that abide by my control start coming to this place in hundreds, thousands, even in millions, by my command. (4 37 13)

"The champions of Vanaras with ghastly aspects and similar in shine with the mountains and clouds shall start coming here by my command, fly jumping as though to overcast the sky. (4 37 4) "Let those vanara s who know the routes to the dwelling places of other Vanaras expeditiously proceed on quick routes, and gather all of the Vanaras available on earth at my command." Sugreeva ordered Hanuma that way. (4 37 15) On hearing the order of Sugreeva, the king of vanara s, Hanuma, the son of Vayu has started to dispatch valorous Vanaras in all directions. (4 37 16)

In a split second, the vanara s that are sent by the king of vanara s have skyrocketed to the airways of Birds and stars on their way, and indeed reached the vault of heaven, which was once trodden by Vishnu. (4 37 17) After skyrocketing those Vanaras have reached the Vanaras that are living at seashores and islands, in the caves and crags of mountains, and at lakeshores and their surrounds, and motivated all of the Vanaras available there towards the cause of Rama. (4 37 18) On hearing that command of the king of kings of Vanara s, Sugreeva, who is semblable with the Death god and Time god, all of the Vanaras have arrived with the terror of Sugreeva haunting them. (4 37 19)

Then thirty million fly jumpers whose swiftness is inconceivable, and whose shine is like that of black mascara have sallied forth from mountain Anjana to there where Raghava is camping, i.e., Mountain Prasravana. (4 37 20) Hundred million Vanaras who take delight on the best mountain where the sun goes into dusk, namely the westerly mountains, asta adri, and whose hue is similar to the refined gold, for dusk has a golden hue, have jumped in. (4 37 21) Vanara s who are in the hue of lion s mane have turned up in thousand crores, say hundred billion, from the pinnacles of Mountain Kailasa. (4 37 22) Those that are sheltered on Himalayas subsisting on fruits and tubers have arrived in a thousand of thousand crores, say a trillion. (4 37 23)

Millions and millions of Vanara s whose looks and deeds are gruesome, and who equal the planet Mars in their crimson flush, as they dwell on the hotbeds of Mountain Vindhya, have swiftly alighted from Mountain Vindhya. (4 37 24) The count of those vanara s who are basically domiciled at the coasts of milky ocean, the residents of Tamala woodlands, and those who feed on coconuts dwelling in coconut groves, and who have presently come from those places is uncountable. (4 37 25) That highly forceful military force of vanara s has arrived from forests, caverns and riversides with their leaping and bounding on the sky blocking up the sun as if they have gulped him down. (4 37 26)

The Vanara s who went from Kishkindha to hasten up all the other Vanaras of all quarters, those champions have reached Himalayan Mountains and saw exceptional trees on them. (4 37 27) On that best and auspicious mountain, once a glorious Vedic ritual intending God Shiva took place, which pleased the hearts of all Gods. (4 37 28) There the vanara s have seen luscious tubers and fruits similar to nectar, which have originated from the oblational food material spattered in the Vedic ritual for Shiva. (4 37 29)

If one eats for one time, a little of those divine and heart pleasing fruits and tubers that have taken their origin from that oblational food material, he remains satiated for a month. (4 37 30) The best Vanaras that are fruit eaters have collected those divine fruits, tubers, and even the divine medicinal herbs. (4 37 31) On going to the cardinal ground of Vedic ritual which was performed once, those vanara s fetched highly fragrant flowers in order to please Sugreeva. (4 37 32) On motivating all of the Vanaras on earth, all those best Vanaras who proceeded to forgather other Vanaras, quickly returned to Kishkindha ahead of the forgathered troops of Vanaras. (4 37 33)

Those quick paced Vanaras quickly reached Kishkindha just at that moment when Lakshmana is still with Sugreeva, and those Vanaras arrived at that place where Sugreeva is available along with Lakshmana. (4 37 34) Taking the medicinal herbs, fruits, and tubers along with them, all of those Vanaras obliged Sugreeva to accept fruits, tubers and herbs as royal gifts, and they also spoke this word to Sugreeva. (4 37 35) "We have rounded up all the mountains, rivers, and forests even, and all of the Vanara s available on earth are fetched to your fore according to your command." Thus the Vanaras said to Sugreeva. (4 37 36)

On listening these words then the king of fly jumpers Sugreeva is gladdened and accepted the gifts brought from Himalayas from all of them. (4 37 37)
