vrm.1.1 "On wiping out five army chiefs, seven sons of ministers, and on kneading down a gallant Rakshasa named Aksha Kumara, Hanuma had to enter into the captivity of a powerful weapon darted by Indrajit, the son of Ravana.
vrm.5.47 Hearing and sustaining that the five army generals along with their followers and vehicles were disposed off by Hanuma, Ravana looked at Aksha, his son, violent in combat and who was inclined to fighting as well as sitting in front of him.
vrm.5.47 Goaded by the looks of Ravana, the energetic Aksha, wielding a golden dotted bow, quickly sprang up, like a fire switched up by the foremost of brahmins in a sacrificial fire, by offering oblations to it.
vrm.5.47 Aksha s chariot was earned through many kinds of his penances.
vrm.5.47 Then, Aksha having a prowess equal to that of Devas, came forth, mounting that chariot decorated with golden wreaths, having a brilliance of moon and sun, filled with every right thing and shining like rays of sun.
vrm.5.47 Aksha, filling the sky earth and its mountains with sounds of Horses Elephants and chariots, together with his army, approached the efficient Hanuma the great Vanara, standing at the archy door way.
vrm.5.47 Approaching that Hanuma, standing there readily to destroy mortals, similar to a fire that is to destroy the world, the yellow eyed Aksha was bewildered, born of a surprise and looked to him with a great esteem.
vrm.5.47 That Aksha, the mighty prince, assessing the swiftness of that high souled Hanuma and his prowess with regard to his adversaries as also his own strength, increased his body more and more like the sun when the frost is faded away.
vrm.5.47 Understanding Hanuma s prowess to be unrestrainable and stable in battle, that Aksha, exhibiting anger initially, became stable and mentally composed and incited Hanuma to battle by discharging three sharp arrows towards him.
vrm.5.47 Recognizing that Hanuma, as a haughty Vanara, after having gallantly conquered his adversaries and accustomed to fatigue, that Aksha, graspign the bow and arrows his hand, saw him with an excited mind.
vrm.5.47 Having a glden chain, a pair of armlets and charming ear rings, Aksha of a swift prowess, approached Hanuma.
vrm.5.47 Seeing that battle between Hanuma and Aksha, the earth uproared.
vrm.5.47 Oozing the blood from his wound caused by those arrows descended into his head by Aksha, looking like the newly risen sun, his eyes bathed in blood rolling rapidly, Hanuma shone brightly like the sun surrounded by a circle of rays, having the arrows as its rays.
vrm.5.47 Seeing in the battle that Aksha the prince, with his marvellous weapons and picturesque bow, that Hanuma the excellent one among Sugreeva s counsellors, was rejoiced and with an inclination to fight, grew in size.
vrm.5.47 That Hanuma, endowed with strength and prowess, resembling the sun appearing on a peak of Mandara muntain and whose anger was increased, then burnt the prince Aksha along with his army and vehicles, by the rays of fire emnating from his eyes.
vrm.5.47 Seeing that Aksha the prince, possessing an impetuous valour, endowed with enhanced splendour strength and vigour with a capacity to move within the sky like a cloud, coming to the battle, Hanuma roared with joy.
vrm.5.47 Boastful of his valour in battle because of his childish attitude, Aksha wit an enhanced fury and red blood eyes, approached Hanuma who was incomparable in battle, as an Elephant approaching a well covered with heaps of straw.
vrm.5.47 As Aksha forcefully discharged his arrows, Hanuma roared a sound of thunder and bounced quickly to the sky assuming a terrible sight, stretching out his arms and thighs.
vrm.5.47 That strong and valiant Aksha, the foremost among the Rakshasas, and the best among car warriors, went chasing Hanuma who was flying upwards, difusing arrows like a cloud showering hail stones on a mountian.
vrm.5.47 That valiant Hanuma, whose swiftness was equal to the mind and possessing impetuous valour in battle, rushing forth like wind in the space between one arrow and another and thus escaping Aksha s arrows, moved in the path visited by wind the sky.
vrm.5.47 With a respectful faculty of sight, Hanuma saw that Aksha who was wielding his bow and readily inclined to fight, covering the entire sky with excellent arrows with various types of tops and became thoughful.
vrm.5.47 Then, the mighty armed Hanuma, who knew how to act under particular circumstances, roaring when pierced in the breast with shafts by the high souled heroic, Aksha, reflected on the prowess of his adversary in battle.
vrm.5.47 "The mighty Aksha, possessing the lustre of a rising sun, is performing a great act, as a mature youth.
vrm.5.47 Then, the great chariot of Aksha, thus struck by the palm and subdued by Hanuma the counsellor of Sugreeva, had its interior broken, its carriage pole loosened and its Horses dead and fallen from the sky to the ground.
vrm.5.47 Leaving the chariot, wielding the bow and sword, that Aksha the chariot warrior leapt to the sky.
vrm.5.47 Thereafter, Hanuma with his prowess equal to that of wind, approaching Aksha moving in the sky, which is often frequented by Garuda the eagle, the wind and Siddhas the ascetics endowed with supernatural powers, slowly grasped his feet firmly.
vrm.5.47 That Hanuma, with a prowess equal to that of wind god, his father, and the excellent one among Vanaras, spigning round Aksha like grasping a great serpent an eagle for a thousand times in the battle, hurled him down to the floor rapidly.
vrm.5.47 Aksha, thus having been killed, Hanuma was gazed on with excessive astonishment by great sages who move everywhere without obstruction and having great voes as also by Bhutas, Yakshas, Pannagas and by Devas with Indra.
vrm.5.47 Killing that Aksha, possessing a lustre equal to that of Jayanta the son of Indra and having his eyes resembling blood, the heroic Hanuma reached the same archy door way again, like Yama the lord of death expecting in a moment any mortal getting destroyed by him.
vrm.5.48 Filled with anger on his son Aksha having been killed by Hanuma, yet reconciling his mind, the high minded Ravana the king of Rakshasas for his part then instructed Indrajit his eldest son possessing the qualities of god as follows:
vrm.5.48 "Your beloved brother Aksha the prince also has been killed.
vrm.5.58 Then, Ravana, the ten headed monster, sent his mighty son, Aksha together with a multitude of army for the combat.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing of the death of Aksha in combat, that ten headed Ravana was very much enraged and thereupon dispatched his second son, by name Indrajit, who was strong but foolishly arrogant in battle.
vrm.6.59 Hearing the words of Ravana, Hanuma the son of Vayu spoke the following words: Recollect that I have killed your son Aksha already.
vrm.6.60 "Already, a single Vanara set fire to our great city of slew the youthful Prince Aksha with his escort of Elephants and retinue.
