vrm.6.9 Then, Nikumbha, Rabhasa, the exceedingly strong Surya satru, Suptaghna, Yajakopa, Mahaparshva and Mahodara, the unconquerable Rakshasas Agniketu and Rasmiketu, then the powerful son of Ravana named Indrajit endowed with great energy, Prahasta and Virupaksha, Vajradamshtra who was extraordinarily strong, Dhumarksha and Atikaya and the Rakshasa by name Durmukha, carrying iron clubs, sharp edged spears, spikes, darts, javelins and axes, bows with excellent arrows and swords shining like a vast expanse of water, and who were all extremely enraged, and flaming as it were with glory, those Rakshasas rose up and spoke to Ravana as follows.
vrm.6.14 O, king! Either Kumbhakarna or Indrajit and either Mahaparshva or Mahodara and either Nikumbha or Kumbha or even Atikaya cannot withstand Rama in battle.
vrm.6.14 Even Devantaka or Narantaka or Atikaya or Atiratha of gigantic proportions, or Akampana who is mighty as an ocean are not capable to withstand against Rama in battle.
vrm.6.59 He who, the archer like unto the Vindhya, Asta or Mahendra Mountains, standing in his chariot, a mighty warrior, of superior strength, who wields a bow of unequalled size and having an exceedingly grown body, he is called Atikaya.
vrm.6.68 Hearing that his paternal uncle was killed Devantaka, Narantaka, Trishira and Atikaya were afflicted with sorrow and wept.
vrm.6.69 Hearing the words of Trishira, Devantaka, Narantaka and the energetic Atikaya were rejoiced of war.
vrm.6.69 Trishira, Atikaya, Devantaka, Narantaka, Mahodara and Mahaparshva, under the clout of destiny set out for the battle.
vrm.6.69 Then, Atikaya, having very fiery energy, the son of Ravana and the foremost among the wielders of bow, mounted an excellent chariot.
vrm.6.69 Atikaya mounted that chariot, having first rate wheels and axles, well yoked, having a good carriage and pole, filled with quivers and bows and flashingly full of missiles, swords and maces.
vrm.6.69 In that chariot, Atikaya that mighty prince, surrounded by the foremost of Rakshasas, shone like Indra surrounded by Devas.
vrm.6.71 Seeing his own army making a tumultuous sound tottering with excessive fear, seeing his brothers having a prowess equal to that of Indra having been killed, and seeing his paternal uncles as also Yuddhonmatta and Matta Mahodara and Mahaparshva his brothers and the foremost of Rakshasas having been fallen down, Atikaya of great splendour, having boons bestowed by Brahma the lord of creation, having appearance of a mountain and who removed the pride of Devas and Danavas, was enraged.
vrm.6.71 That Atikaya, the enemy of Indra, mounting a chariot shining like a cluster of thousand suns, ran towards the Vanaras.
vrm.6.71 When Atikaya was to be attacked, the Vanaras were bewildered in mind and sought in the battle, a refuge with Rama, who affords protection.
vrm.6.71 Then, Rama saw from a distance, Atikaya, who resembled a mountain in size, stationed in a chariot, armed with a bow and rumbling like a cloud appearing at the time of universal dissolution.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that Atikaya, having a colossal body, Rama for his part was quite surprised and after consoling the Vanaras, spoke to Vibhishana as follows: Who is he, resembling a mountain in size, armed with a bow, brown eyed and seated in a spacious chariot yoked with a thousand Horses?
vrm.6.71 He is Atikaya, the son of Dhanyamali.
vrm.6.71 He is Atikaya, who paralyzed the thunderbolt of the intelligent Indra with his arrows.
vrm.6.71 Entering the army of Vanaras, the strong Atikaya then stretched his bow and roared again and again.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya of great splendour, the foremost among those skilled in weaponry, chopped off their trees and crags with his arrows decked with gold.
vrm.6.71 That strong and skilled Atikaya with a terrific body, struck all those Vanaras, facing in front of him in battle with arrows fully made of iron.
vrm.6.71 That Atikaya, with his bow and quiver of arrows, going up quickly towards Rama, spoke haughty words to him as follows:
vrm.6.71 The enraged Lakshmana, coming forward quickly and taking off an arrow from his quiver pulled out his great bow in front of Atikaya.
vrm.6.71 Hearing the terrific twang of Lakshmanas bow, the strong Atikaya of great splendour, was surprised.
vrm.6.71 Seeing Lakshmana standing in front of him for the battle, Atikaya then was enraged and taking a sharp arrow, spoke the following words: O Lakshmana! You are still a boy.
vrm.6.71 Thus speaking, Atikaya was enraged and fixed an arrow on his bow.
vrm.6.71 Hearing the words of Atikaya, filled with anger and arrogance in that battle field, Lakshmana was enraged.
vrm.6.71 Vishnu, as a boy occupied the three worlds just with his three strides, Didnt he? Hearing the reasonable and highly meaningful words of Lakshmana, Atikaya was very much enraged and took out an excellent arrow.
vrm.6.71 Thereafter, the enraged Atikaya, stringing an arrow to his bow, dispatched it towards Lakshmana, as though he were shrinking up the space in between.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that arrow which was chopped off as a snakes hood severed into pieces, Atikaya was very much enraged and fitted five arrows to his bow.
vrm.6.71 Thus speaking with his mouth wide open, Atikaya bent down with his large shoulder, ascended the top of his chariot and roamed about hither and thither by his chariot.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya, the foremost of Rakshasas, seized hold of one, three, five and seven arrows and fixed them to his bow, stretched it and released the arrows.
vrm.6.71 Those arrows, released from the bow of Atikaya, the leader of Rakshasas, appearing as Death, with golden shafts and shining like the sun, set the sky ablaze.
vrm.6.71 That Atikaya, of great splendour, fixing that arrow to his bow and by instantly releasing it, struck the approaching Lakshmana in the middle of his chest.
vrm.6.71 That Atikaya, of great splendour, fixing that arrow to his bow and by instantly releasing it, struck the approaching Lakshmana in the middle of his chest.
vrm.6.71 Struck in battle by Atikaya in his chest, Lakshmana oozed out blood severely, like the fluid exuding from a rutting Elephant.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya of great splendour took up a solar missile and employed it on that arrow, having a golden shaft as also looking like a serpent.
vrm.6.71 Meanwhile, Lakshmana hurled at Atikaya, that blazing and awful arrow employed with that mystic missile as Yama the lord of Death would hurl his rod of destruction.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that arrow charged with a mystic missile of fire, Atikaya the Rakshasa then released the awful arrow charged with the solar missile.
vrm.6.71 Thereupon, the enraged Atikaya released an arrow made of cane a missile presided over by Tvasha the architect of devas.
vrm.6.71 Seeing his arrow made of cane struck down, that young Atikaya was quite enraged and fixed his arrow with a missile presided over by Yama the lord of retribution.
vrm.6.71 Thereupon, Atikaya hurled that missile on Lakshmana.
vrm.6.71 Then, the furious Lakshmana showered forth hails of arrows on Atikaya, as a rainy cloud showers hails of down pour.
vrm.6.71 Reaching Atikaya, those arrows with the points of their shafts shattered on his armour, adorned with diamonds and instantly fell on the earths surface.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya, that mighty Rakshasa, though deluged with a flood of arrows, was not agitated in battle because of the inviolability of his armour.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya released an arrow having a serpent like form on Lakshmana.
vrm.6.71 Lakshmana, the best among men, was not able to afflict any injury to Atikaya in battle.
vrm.6.71 The mighty Atikaya, with that armour, cannot be destroyed by other missiles.
vrm.6.71 Having charged the missile of Brahma on that arrow with the feathers and all, equal to a messenger of Yama the lord of Death over his bow, Lakshmana released that arrow looking like a thunderbolt on Atikaya, the son of Ravana.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya saw that arrow, released with augmented force by Lakshmana, moving so fastly as the wind, having beautiful wings with variegated feathers and looking like a thunderous thunderbolt, approaching him in battle.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that arrow, Atikaya quickly struck with several sharp arrows.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that blazing arrow, looking like Yama the lord of Death and black in colour, approaching him, Atikaya then struck it with spike, spear, mace, axe and arrows.
vrm.6.71 Seeing Atikaya falling on the ground, with his clothes and ornaments scattered away, all the surviving Rakshasas became perturbed.
vrm.6.71 Throwing down in battle, that Atikaya who was exceedingly strong and looking like a cloud, Lakshmana was greatly delighted and while he was being worshipped by the multitude of Vanaras, thereupon quickly hastened towards the proximity of Rama.
vrm.6.72 Hearing Atikaya having been killed in the hands of the great souled Lakshmana, Ravana was worried and spoke as follows: Dhumraksha, who was greatly impatient Akampana who was excellent among all wielders of weapons, Prahasta and Kumbhakarna were killed by Rama, who was unwearied in battle.
vrm.6.72 Blazed as he was with a fire of anger, Ravana the mighty lord of Rakshasas, then remained broading about the loss of his son Atikaya and also sighing again and again.
vrm.6.73 Then, those surviving troops of Rakshasas hastily told Ravana that Devantaka, Trishira, Atikaya and other foremost of Rakshasas had been killed.
vrm.6.123 Virupaksha, who was disagreeable to the sight, Mahaparshva, Mahodara, Akampana, Trishiras, Atikaya Devantaka, Narantaka and other mighty Rakshasas were also killed here.
vrm.7.1 By good luck it is, O Rama, that those highly powerful night rangers, Trisiras and Atikaya and Devantaka and Narantaka, have been slain by thee.
vrm.7.1 Hearing the speech of the ascetics of sacred souls, Rama, coming under the influence of a mighty wonder, said with joined hands, "Ye worshipful ones wherefore, passing by those exceedingly powerful ones Kumbhakarna and the night ranger, Ravana do ye praise Ravana s son ?Wherefore, passing by Mahodara, and Prahasta, and the Rakshasa Virupaksha and Matta, and Unmatta, and the irrepressible Devantaka and Narantaka redoubtable heroes all do ye extoll Ravana s son ?And wherefore, passing by Atikaya and Trisiras and Dhumraksha, that night ranger all endowed with exceeding prowess, do ye extoll Ravana s son ?What was his prowess ?And what his strength ?And what his might ?And by virtue of what cause did he surpass Ravana ?If I can well hear the same, do ye tell it me.
vrm.7.32 And encircled by Maricha, Prahasta, Mahaparshva, Mahodara, Akampana, Nikumbha, Suka, Sarana, Sanghrada, Dhumaketu, Mahadangstra, Gathodara, Jambumali, Mahahrada, Virupaksha, Suptaghna, Yajnakopa, Durmukha, Khara, Trisira, Karaveeraksha, Suryashatru Mahakaya, Atikaya, Devantaka, Narantaka, all those gifted with great prowess, there entered the battle field, the highly powerful Sumalin, Ravana s maternal grandfather.
