vrm.1.1 for I, having known from Brahma of such a man, will make clear about that man.
vrm.1.1 "Though the release from the weapon s captivity is known to him by the boon of Brahma, and though he is valiant enough to pulverise all the Rakshasas, but to see and talk to Ravana, thus to gauge the strength of enemy, Hanuma is intentionally tolerant of the Rakshasas and their making Monkey of him when they fastened him with ropes and dragged him to Ravana s court.
vrm.1.1 b, a "On performing hundreds of Horse Rituals and rituals wherein plenteous gold is bounteously donated, likewise on donating millions of Cows and uncountable wealth to Brahmans and scholars, that highly illustrious Rama will proceed to Brahma s abode, in future.
vrm.1.1 for a total of eleven thousand years, Rama voyages to the abode of Brahma.
vrm.1.2 Then, the great resplendent Four faced creator of fourteen worlds, almighty Brahma, arrived there on his own, to see that eminent saint Valmiki.
vrm.1.2 Then that pious saint Valmiki is highly surprised on seeing Brahma, and on quickly getting up from his seat with his palms adjoined humbly, he stood aside, as he is spellbind.
vrm.1.2 Valmiki venerated Brahma, on inquiring into his well being, washed his feet, drenched his thirst, seated him to rest, and adored at best with customarily obeisance.
vrm.1.2 Then god Brahma, who is seated on a high seat, very highly worshipped by Valmiki, also beckoned at Valmiki to take a seat.
vrm.1.2 Even though Valmiki sat on his seat when duly permitted by Brahma, and though the Grandparent of the worlds is manifestly sitting before him, but the same broodings on those happenings occurred on that day have recurred on his mind.
vrm.1.2 b a Then, Brahma smilingly spoke to that eminent saint Valmiki, "But, what that is composed is a verse only.
vrm.1.2 till then you will flourish in heavenly, in netherworlds, and even in my abode, namely Abode of Brahma.
vrm.1.2 On saying thus that Divinity Brahma vanished then and there only, and then that godly sage Valmiki came by astonishment, along with his disciples.
vrm.1.3 Their smiles, their conversations, their deeds and the succession of events as well, all of them the sage saw wholly and clearly by the yogic power conferred by Brahma.
vrm.1.8 a Scholarly Brahma Rakshasas will be hunting for the faults alone in the course of this ritual.
vrm.1.11 This way he that ancient and godly Sage Sanatkumara, who is also Brahma s brain child like Narada, said this legend in earlier Divine Era, called krita yuga.
vrm.1.12 the Brahma Rakshasas will be hunting for the faults performed in the rituals whereat they can inteject themselves in to the proceedings of the ritual in order to ruin it.
vrm.1.14 As the promoter of his own dynasty that king Dasharatha donated eastern side to Hota, western to Adhvaryu, and southern to Brahma.
vrm.1.14 These were the donations stipulated in that great ritual, Ashwamedha, by the Self Created Brahma from earlier times.
vrm.1.15 Those deities who procedurally assembled there in that congregation then spoke to Brahma, the creator of worlds.
vrm.1.15 When all the deities spoke to Brahma thus, he thought for a while and then said Aha"! The idea to kill that evil minded Ravana is discerned.
vrm.1.15 So said Brahma to Devas.
vrm.1.15 On hearing Brahma the explaining himself then all those Devas and great sages became adequately happy.
vrm.1.15 Vishnu having met Brahma stood there contemplating, and then all of the Devas on bowing down and offering prayers addressed Vishnu.
vrm.1.15 b, a When the god of Devas Vishnu, the supreme one among deities, one who is revered by all worlds is eulogised this way, then he spoke to all of those that abide in the righteousness and that are in the assemblage, keeping the Forefather Brahma at their helm.
vrm.1.16 "Oh, destroyer of enemies, he that Ravana undertook a vehement ascesis for a long period, thereby the creator of worlds and the first born one Brahma, felt gladsome of his ascesis.
vrm.1.16 "Satisfied with his ascesis Brahma gave boon to that Rakshasa that he shall have no fear for his life from many kinds of beings, excepting humans, because that Rakshasa indeed slighted humans earlier at the time of bestowing boon.
vrm.1.16 a "Thus, on getting boon from the Forefather Brahma he has become arrogant and torturing the three worlds, and he is even abducting women.
vrm.1.16 On taking a decision Vishnu took leave of Forefather Brahma, and vanished while he is still being extolled by Devas and Sages.
vrm.1.17 When Vishnu attained the sonship of the great souled king Dasharatha, then Brahma the self created addressed all of the Devas this way.
vrm.1.17 When Brahma addressed them thus, those Devas have agreed to his order and accordingly started to parent sons in the semblance of Vanaras.
vrm.1.18 a Among those princes the eldest one Rama is like a flagstaff and a delight of his father Dasharatha, and he became acceptable to all beings like the self created Brahma.
vrm.1.18 b, a King Dasharatha is highly gladdened with four of his highly fortunate sons like the Forefather Brahma with Devas in heaven.
vrm.1.18 When all of the four sons are thus prospering with prudence, gifted with all the merits, self conscious to do wrong deeds, well known for their gentility, knowers of pros and cons and even the conscientious princes, then their father Dasharatha is contented in respect of all of them who are such radiantly brilliant and potential princes, like Brahma.
vrm.1.18 b, a On hearing that message from doorkeepers Dasharatha is highly pleased and he has gone towards Vishvamitra in a self possessed manner along with royal priests, as Indra would ceremoniously go towards Brahma.
vrm.1.20 One born in Paulastya dynasty, an extremely mighty and exceedingly brave Rakshasa named Ravana is there, and he with the boon given by Brahma, and accompanied with many other Rakshasas is torturing the triad of worlds, contemptuously.
vrm.1.22 Rama and Lakshmana, with two quivers each and two bows in their hands, and making all the ten directions of compass lambent followed Vishvamitra, as if three headed serpents followed Vishvamitra, and with their highly dynamic physiques and spiritedness they look as if like the Ashwins of unequal charm following Brahma, the Forefather.
vrm.1.22 daughters of Forefather Brahma, and oh, Rama of Kakutstha, I intend to impart these hymns to you, oh virtuous one, as you are the most eligible one, hence take the teachings that are kept safe from the world.
vrm.1.24 b, a "On Mountain Kailasa Brahma created a great lake at his will, oh, tigerly man Rama, hence that is called Maanasa Lake.
vrm.1.24 And because it flows from Brahma s Lake it is a merited river.
vrm.1.25 "Gladdening at his ascesis, Rama, then the Forefather Brahma gave him a gemlike daughter who is renowned by the name of Tataka.
vrm.1.25 Forefather" Brahma also gave the strength of a thousand Elephants to her, but he that highly remarkable Brahma did not give a son to that Yaksha, anticipating male to be more hazardous.
vrm.1.26 "Such as I am, I will undertake the primary duty of eliminating Tataka, according as the follower of father s words, and according to the instruction of a Brahma scholar, such as your are, without a doubt.
vrm.1.26 But the Brahma sage Vishvamitra daunted sounded her off and said to Rama and Lakshmana, "let you be safe, and be victorious.
vrm.1.27 a Raghava", I am going to give the highly divine Danda disc Punisher disc next, oh, best one among men, Dharma disc Virtue disc, and like that kaala disc Time disc then oh, brave one, Vishnu disc similarly oh, dextrous Rama, Indra disc and Thunderbolt missile the best trident pertaining to Shiva the missile called Brahma shira Brahma crest the missile called the Aishiika missile Grass Blade missile, and that way oh, Raghava, I am going to give the unexcelled and highly formidable missile called Brahma missile.
vrm.1.32 "Once there was a highly righteous kingly sage who is the brainchild of Brahma, whose ascesis is of higher order, who has never flouted the rules of rituals or his vows, and who revered the knowers of virtue by name Kusha.
vrm.1.33 Vedic splendour is flourishing in you when you have become one with Brahma, oh, supreme ascetic, I may please be endowed with a righteous son whose ascetic spirituality may embody the spirituality enunciated in Veda s.
vrm.1.33 "That Brahma sage Cuulina benignantly bestowed her with a unique and Brahma like son who is renowned as Brahmadatta, as well as his own brainchild.
vrm.1.34 During the performance of the ritual, supremely generous Kusha, the brainchild of Brahma and the father of Kushanaabha, spoke to the king Kushanaabha.
vrm.1.34 "Saying so, oh, Rama, Kushanaabha s father Kusa entered the sky and journeyed to the time honoured abode of Brahma.
vrm.1.34 "Sublime is this lineage of Kusha dynasty which always dedicated itself to righteousness, and the dynasts of Kusha are the best ones among mankind, and they symbolise with god Brahma himself, thus they are highly reverential.
vrm.1.34 "You alone are exemplarily selfsame to Brahma, oh, Vishvamitra of great renown, and among rivers that prominent River Kaushiki is your sister, thus she is glorifying your ancestry.
vrm.1.36 b, c, "All the Gods headed by Brahma have then started to ponder, is there anybody who can inevitably sustain that being which emerges from this goddess Uma after this prolonged yogic act of copulation with Shiva? This being the worry of all Gods they have prepared for action.
vrm.1.37 "While god Shiva is undertaking ascesis thus, then the Devas desiring an Army Chief for Deva forces have arrived in the audience of Forefather Brahma, along with Indra and keeping Agni at their fore.
vrm.1.37 "On approaching the Forefather Brahma, oh, Rama, all of the Devas headed by Agni and along with Indra have venerated and then spoke this to him.
vrm.1.37 Oh, god Brahma, he who has hypothetically given a Chief of Deva Army in the form of his potence that god Shiva is undertaking a supreme ascesis, indeed along with Goddess Uma.
vrm.1.37 Looking forward for the welfare of the worlds, oh, knower of the procedures, Brahma, you may order us clearly what is to be done next, as you alone are our ultimate recourse.
vrm.1.37 "On listening the words of Devas, Brahma, the Forefather of all the worlds, soothingly spoke this to them with sweet words.
vrm.1.37 So said Brahma to all the Gods.
vrm.1.37 "On hearing those words of Brahma, oh, Rama, the delight of Raghu s dynasty, all the Gods have praisefully worshipped him, as their ends are achieved at the bidding fair of Brahma.
vrm.1.38 Which of us will carry one son, oh, Brahma sage, and which of us begets numerous sons, we two wish to listen about that, oh, Brahman, let your word betide truth.
vrm.1.39 "All the Gods along with Gandharva s, Asura s, and Uragas who are distraught at heart for the plight of earth have approached the Forefather, Brahma.
vrm.1.39 "They the Gods who are very highly scared, and who are chap fallen, then spoke this sentence to the great souled Forefather Brahma on gaining his grace.
vrm.1.39 Oh, god Brahma, the sons of Sagara are digging entire earth, thus aquatic beings and many great souls are being destroyed.
vrm.1.39 Thus all the Gods have appealed to Brahma.
vrm.1.40 "On hearing the words of Gods, the esteemed Forefather Brahma spoke to them, who are very highly scared, and bewildered by the might of Sagara s sons for they are effectuating the end of all beings.
vrm.1.40 So said Brahma to Gods.
vrm.1.40 "On hearing the words of the Forefather Brahma all the thirty three Gods went away with utmost satisfaction, as they have came.
vrm.1.42 a Thousands" of years have rolled by while Bhagiratha stood practising his severe ascesis, oh, dextrous Rama, and then the lord and master of all beings, namely god Brahma, is well pleased with that great souled king s ascesis.
vrm.1.42 b, Forefather" Brahma then arrived along with assemblages of Gods, and spoke this way to the great souled Bhagiratha who is deep in the practise of ascesis.
vrm.1.42 "That great resplendent and highly fortunate king Bhagiratha then remaining with suppliantly adjoined palm fold spoke to him who is the Forefather of all worlds, namely Brahma.
vrm.1.42 "The Forefather of all the worlds, Brahma, then replied the king who has spoken in that way, in an auspicious tongue that is sweet sounding and sweetly worded, as well.
vrm.1.42 Thus Brahma spoke to Bhagiratha.
vrm.1.42 Speaking this way to the king Bhagiratha and informally greeting Ganga also, that Creator of Worlds, Brahma, left for heaven along with all the groups of Devas and Maruts.
vrm.1.43 "When the god of Gods Brahma left from there Bhagiratha stood on the tip of his big toe praying for the mercy of Lord Shiva for one year, while that tip of his big toe pressurised the earth.
vrm.1.44 "While the waters of Ganga are inundating those ashes, oh, Rama, then Brahma, the lord of all worlds, indeed spoke this to the king Bhagiratha.
vrm.1.44 That Descent of Ganga is perfected by you, oh, enemy represser, and by this you have acquired a genuine basis for righteousness in this world, and thereby a base for yourself in my world, namely Abode of Brahma.
vrm.1.44 Thus Brahma said to Bhagiratha.
vrm.1.44 "On saying in this way, the forefather of all the worlds, and the great glorious lord of all Gods, namely Brahma, went away to his empyrean world as he has came.
vrm.1.47 One from the seven may permeate Brahma s abode, likewise another may permeate the heaven of Indra, and even the third one, let him become a greatly celebrated and reputed as Divine Vayu, and he may circulate in entire universe.
vrm.1.50 b, a "Oh, Brahma sage, the scholarly Ritvik s conducting my Vedic ritual are saying that only twelve more days are remaining to complete the observation of ritual pledge, and then oh, Kaushika, it will be apt of you to see the Gods who arrive at the conclusion of this Vedic ritual expecting their due in the ritual.
vrm.1.51 He attained the highest order of Brahma sage by his ascesis, thus illimitable is his ascetic resplendence, and you have to know him as an ultimate course, not only to you alone, but also to one and all.
vrm.1.51 "Moving sequentially about the provinces, cities, rivers likewise mountains, king Vishvamitra arrived at the threshold of a hermitage which is with numerous flowered trees and climbers, overspread with very many herds of animals, adored by the Siddhas and Caaranas, frequented and embellished with Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, and Kinnaras, spread out with equable deer, adored by flights of Birds, compacted with the assemblages of Brahmarshis, and also with the assemblages of Devarshis who are fully accomplished in their ascesis, where the personal resplendence of each of the great souled sage is similar to each of the Ritual fire available in each of the Ritual Fire Altar before which he is sitting, and which hermitage is bustling with the activity of great souled sages who are comparable to Brahma, among whom some subsist on water alone, and some on air alone, likewise some more on dry leaves, while some on fruits, tubers, and with such of those sages and also with particular sages like Vaalakhilya s, also with others like Vaikhanasa s, who are all self controlled, who have overcame their peccabilites, who have overpowered their senses that hermitage is occupied, and while everyone of the inmates is engaged in meditations and oblations into Ritual fire, and with such sages and their activity whole of the perimeter of that hermitage is brightened and rendered splendent, and king Vishvamitra arrived at such a magnificent hermitage of Sage Vashishta.
vrm.1.51 a "And this best one among vanquishers and the great stalwart Vishvamitra has then seen the hermitage of Vashishta which is like the worldly Universe of Brahma.
vrm.1.52 Vashishta the supreme one among meditators, a great ascetic, and the brainchild of Brahma has then asked Vishvamitra who is sitting at ease.
vrm.1.54 Oh, Son of Brahma, why I am discarded by you, whereby oh, god, the king s attendants are weaning me away from your proximity.
vrm.1.54 "When he is spoken thus, then that Brahma sage spoke this sentence to worrisome Shabala, whose heart is worrying with worry, as he would speak with his own sister in her worriment.
vrm.1.54 "She who is spoken that way by Vashishta, that sententious Sacred Cow, Shabala, in her turn obediently spoke this sentence to that Brahma sage of un balanceable resplendence.
vrm.1.56 "That reverential sage Vashishta then upraising his Brahma baton, which is like the other baton of the Terminator, spoke this sentence furiously.
vrm.1.56 "With his baton of Brahma Vashishta silenced that matchless and deadly Fiery missile of Gaadhi s son, namely Vishvamitra, as a deluge of water silencing a rage of fire.
vrm.1.56 "He also launched the missiles called Drainer and Ripper, and the highly unconquerable Thunderbolt, even the lassos of Brahma, Time and Rain Gods.
vrm.1.56 a Brahma" s son Vashishta defused all of those missiles just with his baton and when all of them are thus silenced, Gaadhi s son Vishvamitra touched off Brahma s missile.
vrm.1.56 "When Vishvamitra brandished and set up Brahma missile for launching, seeing it all the Gods keeping the Agni at their vanguard, Devarshis, Uragas along with Gandharva s are perplexed, and the triad of worlds itself is perturbed.
vrm.1.56 b, "Even that deleteriously destructive Brahma s missile is completely consumed with the seraphic resplendence of Brahma baton of Sage Vashishta.
vrm.1.56 "The appearance of that great souled Vashishta became appallingly perplexing when he is finishing off that Brahma missile as if to surely petrify the Tri world.
vrm.1.56 "The baton of Brahma gripped in his hand and upraised by Vashishta is highly glowing as if it is the fumeless inferno of Time, and as if it is the earthly baton of Yama.
vrm.1.56 Fie upon the might of Kshatriya, mightier is the might of Brahman s resplendence, only with one baton of Brahma all of my missiles are defused.
vrm.1.56 Therefore on analysing this matter, I with my heart and senses quietened will embark on a sublime ascesis which really will be the causative factor for according Brahma Sage hood.
vrm.1.57 "At the close of one thousand years of ascesis Brahma, the Grandparent of all worlds, revealed Himself to Vishvamitra and spoke these words mellowly to ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra, oh, son of Kushika, Vishvamitra, you have won the worlds of kingly sages by your ascesis.
vrm.1.57 saying so that great resplendent Brahma, the Supreme Ruler of the Worlds, went away to his Abode of Brahma, while the Gods in Brahma s convoy went to Indra s Heaven.
vrm.1.63 "The very highly resplendent Brahma spoke to him with highly palatable words, you have now become a kingly sage by virtue of auspicious deeds you have personally undertaken, let safeness betide you.
vrm.1.63 "On speaking to Vishvamitra in that way Brahma returned to heaven, and that highly vigorous Vishvamitra again performed a great ascesis.
vrm.1.63 "All Gods coming together with assemblages of sages have approached Brahma and conveyed that, this Vishvamitra, the son of Kushika, may duly be given the epithet of Maharshi, Exalted Sage.
vrm.1.63 b, a "On listening the advice of Gods, Brahma, the Grandparent of all the worlds, spoke these pleasant words to the ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 And on hearing the words of Brahma he that ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra became obeisant and replied the Grandparent adjoining his palms suppliantly.
vrm.1.63 b, a If your Godhead had said that I am a Brahma sage, a sageship acquired personally by my pious deeds, rather than an exalted sage, then I would have become one who is really self conquered.
vrm.1.63 Thus Vishvamitra said to Brahma.
vrm.1.63 a Brahma" then said to him, your senses remain unconquered as such, oh, tigerly sage, make an effort for it.
vrm.1.63 Saying so Brahma went heavenward.
vrm.1.63 "While the Gods who came here along with Brahma have returned, that great sage Vishvamitra undertook another round of ascesis by standing in levitation, upraising his arms, and subsisting on air alone.
vrm.1.65 "Then the Devas, Sages, Gandharva s, Pannagas, Uragas and Rakshasas are puzzled at the ascesis of Vishvamitra, and as their own resplendence is dulled by the ascesis of Vishvamitra, thereby they are marred by this blemish of lowered resplendence, then all of them addressed the Grandparent, Brahma.
vrm.1.65 b, a The earth is highly tremulous, air is gusting turbulently, oh, Brahma, people tend to become non theistic and we do not know what to do.
vrm.1.65 Thus, all Gods appealed to Brahma b, a "Then all the assemblages of Gods keeping the Grandparent Brahma in their forefront appeared before that great souled Vishvamitra and said this harmonious word.
vrm.1.65 b, a Oh, Brahma sage, you are welcome.
vrm.1.65 Thus, Brahma said to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.65 b, a "On hearing the word of Grandparent Brahma and the other residents of heaven, and on paying good devoirs to all of them that great saint cheerfully said.
vrm.1.65 Oh, Gods, he who is the outstanding one among the geniuses of kingcraft, and among the scholars of Veda s as well, even that Vashishta, the brainchild of Brahma, shall acknowledge me in this way as Brahma sage.
vrm.1.65 He also said in this way to Vishvamitra, you are a Brahma sage.
vrm.1.65 "No doubt, you are a Brahma sage and everything will accrue to you in accordance with the sublimity of this sageship, and when Vashishta said so to Vishvamitra, all the Gods have gone away as they have come.
vrm.1.65 "On getting his Brahman hood even the virtue souled Vishvamitra started to reverence the supreme among meditators and his counterpart Brahma sage, namely Vashishta.
vrm.1.70 b, a The Unprovable emanated the timeless, changeless and perishless Brahma, and from that Being, namely Brahma, Marichi is begotten, and Kaashyapa is the son of Marichi, and Vivaswat is begotten from Kaashyapa, and Manu is said to be the son of Vivaswat.
vrm.1.71 "Oh, Brahma sage Vashishta, for the reason of my non bestowal of bow or bride he warred with me, and when he affronted me in that war I have put that Sudhanva to the sword.
vrm.1.72 the initiatory ceremonies of his sons, as well, he that serene king Dasharatha who is amidst the quartet of his sons, shone forth like serene Brahma, who is quartet faced, with the quartet of Veda s, and who is the overlord of mankind, amidst the quartet of presiding deities in the quartet of the world.
vrm.1.73 Then that king from Videha bloodline, Janaka, said in this way to Vashishta, Oh, the knower of punctilios, oh, Brahma sage, oh, masterly sage, along with other sages you make happen all of the marriage ceremonies of Rama, the rejoicer of the world.
vrm.1.75 a "Once, all the Gods were asking the Grandparent, Brahma, as to who is powerful and who is less powerful among the blue throated Shiva and Vishnu.
vrm.1.75 but the Grandparent Brahma on inferring the intent of Gods started to create adversity among those two, Shiva and Vishnu, for the Grandparent is the best adherer of truthfulness, as truth cannot be demonstrated on hearsay evidence.
vrm.1.76 Gods together with the assemblages of sages have come keeping the Grandparent Brahma at their fore, likewise the Gandharva s, Apsara s, Siddha s, Caarana s, Kinnara s, Yaksha s, sprites and reptilian beings have also come to see Rama who is now wielding the extraordinary longbow of Vishnu, and extremely amazing event that is going to ensue.
vrm.1.77 b, a That way Dasharatha is pleased with the deportment and comportment of Rama, likewise the Brahman s and urbanites, and even all of the indwellers in the entire kingdom are pleased, and he who has high distinction, his truthfulness alone is his vantage point, and whose hallmarks are of higher degree, that Rama has manifested himself to those subjects in the kingdom, and even to all of the living beings in the world, as the Self Created Brahma.
vrm.2.1 Rama, like the Brahma among all the living beings, the most virtuous among those brothers and the mightiest was a great source of joy for his father.
vrm.2.1 Duly adorned himself, he looked after them in the manner Lord Brahma looks after his children.
vrm.2.14 Truth" is one word and is Brahma.
vrm.2.14 "As Vedas along with the knowledge of the limbs of the body guide Lord Brahma who is self born, so am I awakening you now.
vrm.2.16 King" Dasaratha will give you kingdom, being served by brahmanas, which will invest you with eligibility to perform the great sacrifice at the coronation ceremony like Brahma to Devendra.
vrm.2.25 "Let Siva, the lord of all spheres, Brahma, the lord of creation, Vishnu, the nourisher of beings, the sages and the rest of the Celestials may protect you dwelling in the forest.
vrm.2.30 There is indeed no fear whatsoever to me, like the god of Brahma.
vrm.2.32 Then, Rama who speaks polite words as coolly as Brahma to Devendra, spoke to his beloved brother Lakshmana as follows:
vrm.2.34 "Giving up grief, Oh the bestower of honour, grant leave to all of us, Lakshmana myself and Seetha as Brahma did to his sons sanaka and his three brothers who intended to go to forest for practising austerities.
vrm.2.44 “Formerly, when Rama killed Subahu the son of Sambarasura the chief of Rakshasas, Brahma being delighted gave celestial weapons to Rama, the man with great splendor.
vrm.2.52 You, Oh goddess flowing through three regions namely heaven, earth and subterranean regions, include in your basin the realm of Brahma the outermost of the six spheres enveloping the earth and are vividly seen on this terrestrial plane as a consort of the ocean king.
vrm.2.91 "I invoke the fair women who are attending on Brahma the Lord of creation all of them with their external appendages like musical instruments along with their teacher Tumburu.
vrm.2.91 On both the banks of those streams, enchanting and celestial houses plastered with white clay born out of the grace of Brahma the Lord of creation, appeared.
vrm.2.91 At that moment itself, twenty thousand women adorned with beautiful ornaments, sent by Brahma, arrived.
vrm.2.99 Bharata saw that Rama clad in an antelope skin and robes of bark, seated close by, resembling a fire in brilliance, with the neck and shoulders of a lion, mighty arms and eyes resembling the lotus, the very virtuous Lord of the Earth extending upto the ocean, the Eternal Brahma, and seated on the ground spread with Darbha grass, with Seetha and Lakshmana.
vrm.2.104 Seeing Rama in the garb of an ascetic, radiant in majesty, the extremely powerful Bharata, paying obeisance to him with joined palms, then took his place in his presence, as the devoted Indra sits before Brahma the Lord of creation.
vrm.2.105 King" Dasaratha, our father, having abandoned his worn out human body, indeed has attained the celstial state, by which he can stroll in the realm of Brahma the highest heaven.
vrm.2.110 After that, the self existent Brahma with all the Gods came into existence.
vrm.2.110 "Thereafter, that Brahma, assuming the form of boar, caused the earth to rise from water and with his sons of pure soul, created the entire world.
vrm.2.110 "The eternal, changeless and imperishable Brahma was begotten from ether and from his was born Marichi.
vrm.2.110 "The delighted Queen Kalindi circumambulated that sage, took permission from him to leave and thereafter on reaching home, had delivered a son, having eyes resembling lotus leaves and having a radiance like that of Brahma the Lord of creation.
vrm.3.1 Rama has seen such a cluster of hermitages that is glistening forth just by the presence of holy saints whose sustenance is constrained, and that hermitage is distinctive like Brahma s abode, reverberating with the sounds of that Brahma s Vedic chants alone.
vrm.3.1 That glorious and great resplendent Rama on seeing those precincts of hermitage that is graced with highly blest Brahmans, the knowers of Brahma, neared it, unstringing the bowstring of his great bow.
vrm.3.3 "On my undertaking ascesis I derived a boon from the beneficence of Brahma, by which I will neither be cut, nor slit, nor killed with a weapon in this world.
vrm.3.5 "Oh! Rama, that boon giver Indra wishes to take me to Brahma s abode, which is achieved by me by my arduous ascesis and that which is unattainable for them with their souls unconquered.
vrm.3.5 "On knowing that you are course is nearby, oh! Manly tiger, and without seeing my dear guest I do not wish to go to Brahma s abode.
vrm.3.5 Having met with you, a virtuous one and a great soul as you are, oh, manly tiger, I wish to go through undesirable lesser heavens to Brahma s abode, the highest "Oh! tigerly man, non diminishing are the abodes achieved by me either in Brahma s abode or yonder than paradise.
vrm.3.5 He that Sage Sharabhanga, transcending the ethereal worlds of fire worshippers, of saints, of great souls, and also of divinities, has ascended to Brahma s abode.
vrm.3.5 He that meritorious and best Brahman Sharabhanga has seen Brahma in Brahmas’ abode, and Brahma too, on seeing that Brahman happily spoke to him.
vrm.3.6 "A king shall treat all the subjects of kingdom as his own sons, and he shall protect them as though he is ready to save them at the cost of his own lives, and he who will always be endeavouring in that manner will attain permanent renown lasting for many for many years to come, and thereby he attains a prosperous place even in Brahma s abode.
vrm.3.7 That self respecting Rama replied the radiant sage with intense asceticism, a great soul and an advocate of truth by himself, as Indra would reply to Brahma.
vrm.3.12 b, a Rama entered inside the hermitage and saw therein the sanctus of Brahma, Agni, Vishnu, Indra, Vivasvat the Sun god, Soma the Moon god, Bhaga, and the sanctusms of Kubera, are seen and passed by the three of them, sanctums of Dhaata, Vidhaata, santucm of Vayu, and also like that the sanctum of great soled Varuna the wielder of noose, and the sanctum of Gayatri, sanctum of Vasus, and the sanctum of Naga king, and even the sanctum of Garuda and the sanctum of Kaartikeya and the sanctum of Dharma b, a Then encircled by disciples the sage Agastya came out quickly, and Rama saw him who is glowing brilliant before all the other sages.
vrm.3.12 "This sacred bow that is decorated with gold and diamonds is crafted by the divine architect Vishvakarma pertains to Vishnu, and these unwasteful arrows equalling sun in their blaze are the gift of Brahma.
vrm.3.30 Then, Rama snatched an arrow which is similar to the Ritual fire, and secondary only to the ultimate missile, namely the Brahma missile, for the elimination of Khara in war.

"Or whether a supreme bright energy of Vishnu, the lord of maintenance of the Universe, unthinkable, unmanifest, infinite and pearless, arrived now, assuming the form of a Vanara for the destruction of Rakshasas, by virtue of Her extraordinary power?" Thus spoke all those excellent troops of Rakshasas in multitude, gathering together there, on seeing that city scorched so soon, with its host of living beings, houses and trees.

vrm.6.41 From now on, that arrogance, born of the boon you received from Brahma the Lord of creation, shall be subdued.
vrm.6.54 With their limbs crippled by those arrows and frightened, those Vanara battalions sought refuge with Angada, as all creatures with Brahma the Lord of Creation.

vrm.6.59 Ravana, the enemy of Devas, whose bow was broken, struck by the arrows, his limbs spattered with flesh, and streaming with blood, himself of formidable energy, seized in the battle a spear gifted to him by Brahma the Lord of Creation.
vrm.6.59 Lakshmana, though wounded in the breast by Brahma s weapon, recollected that he was an inconceivable fraction of Vishnu Himself.
vrm.6.59 O, Tiger among the Rakshasas! Stay, stay! Having evoked such a displeasure to me, where will you flee and get an abandonment? Even if you seek refuge in the region of Indra or Yama or the Sun or Brahma or Agni or Shiva or in the ten regions, even in those abodes you will elude me from now on.
vrm.6.60 The Lord of Rakshasas was maddened in recollecting Rama s arrows resembling the Rod of Brahma the Lord of creation and possessed of the splendour of lightning.
vrm.6.60 Resting on an excellent and charming throne made of Gold, Ravana looked at the Rakshasas and spoke the following words: "All that great penance performed by me became a waste indeed, for, I who am equal to Mahendra the Lord of Devas have been defeated by a mere man!" "The terrible words of Brahma the Lord of Creation saying, You know of the threat from men appear true.
vrm.6.60 "Awaken that Kumbhakarna, who is without equal in prowess, who humbles the pride of the Devas and Danavas, and on whom the curse of Brahma rests.
vrm.6.60 The royal high way was illumined by his body, like unto that orb of a thousand rays the sun by its flashes illumines the earth and he went there, surrounded by a circle of Rakshasas paying obeisance, resembling Indra approaching the abode of Brahma the Lord of Creation.
vrm.6.61 Even Indra with his people went to the abode of Brahma.
vrm.6.61 "They informed about the evil mind of Kumbhakarna to Brahma, how he devoured the living creatures, his assault on Devas, the destroyal of hermitages and his taking away of others wives.
vrm.6.61 "On hearing the words of Indra, Brahma, the great grandfather of the entire world, called for the Rakshasas and saw Kumbhakarna too along with them.
vrm.6.61 "Just on seeing Kumbhakarna even Brahma was frightened.
vrm.6.61 Thereafter on restoring his confidence, Brahma cursed Kumbhakarna as follows: "It is sure that you were created by visravasa for the destroyal of people.
vrm.6.61 "Humbled by Brahma s curse, Kumbhakarna then fell down in front of Ravana.
vrm.6.61 Thereupon, the highly perplexed Ravana spoke the following words:" O Brahma! You are cutting off a well grown golden tree, just at the time of yielding its fruit.
vrm.6.61 "Hearing the words of Ravana, Brahma spoke as follows: He will indeed sleep for six months and wake up for a day.
vrm.6.62 Entering Ravana s palace, like the sun entering a mass of clouds, Kumbhakarna then saw from of distance his brother seated on a throne, as Indra saw Brahma perched on his seat.
vrm.6.63 O king! If you have a fear for Indra or even for Brahma, I shall remove it then, as the sun removes darkness of the night.
vrm.6.66 "If our longevity is short, we shall lie down, being killed by the enemies, on the earth and reach the realm of Brahma residence of pious spirits, which is difficult to be attained by bad warriors.
vrm.6.67 "O Vanara! You are the grandson of Lord Brahma and even the son of Riksharaja sprung from the yawn of Brahma endowed with firmness and valour.
vrm.6.67 Thereupon, that Rama got hold of an arrow spelled with a missile presided over by Indra effulgent as sun s rays, resembling the rod of Brahma the lord of creation as also the destructive Kala, the Time Spirit, and having its speed equal to the wind.
vrm.6.69 “You do continue to have a javelin given by Brahma, an armour, a bow and an arrow together with a chariot yoked to a thousand Donkeys, emitting a sound resembling the rumbling of a cloud.
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 “He, who purified his soul by meditating on the universal soul, worshipped Brahma the lord of creation, obtained missiles too and conquered the enemies.
vrm.6.71 Brahma“, the lord of creation, granted a boon, exempting him from death at the hands of Devas and Asuras as also this wonderful armour and the chariot shining like the sun.
vrm.6.71 Then, the wind god came to him and spoke to him as follows: “He, endowed with a boon by Brahma the lord of creation, is cloaked by inviolable armour.
vrm.6.71 Split him with a missile of Brahma.
vrm.6.71 Then, hearing the words of the wind god, Lakshmana having a prowess equal to that of Indra adjusting his arrow with a missile presided over by Brahma, quickly directed the arrow with a terrific force.
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.6.73 Indrajit, who was skilled in the use of mystic missiles, invoked the missile presided over by Brahma and charged it on his bow, chariot and all.
vrm.6.73 “How can the mighty and composed Indrajit on whom a boon has been bestowed by Brahma and who has concealed his terrible form who stands with his weapons uplifted eventhough his body is visible be killed in the battle today?
vrm.6.73 “I think the self born Brahma who is the source of the universe is inconceivable and this missile is presided over by him.
vrm.6.74 Seeing the entire army looking worried, Vibhishana, the best among the intelligent ones, spoke the following matchless words, consoling the warriors of Sugreeva, the lord of Vanaras: “Honouring the spell sacred of Brahma the creator, the two sons of the venerable Dasaratha have actually lost their free will and became dejected and have allowed themselves to be knocked down by the missiles of Indrajit.
vrm.6.74 “This excellent missile, presided over by Brahma the creator, with never failing strength, was given to Indrajit by Brahma.
vrm.6.74 Then, the intelligent Hanuma, the son of Vayu, paying honour to the missile presided over by Brahma and hearing the words of Vibhishana, spoke the following words: “Let us restore to confidence whosoever is in this army of energetic Vanaras, after having been struck by the missile.
vrm.6.74 Sixty seven crores of powerful Vanaras were struck down by the cherished missile of Brahma, the self born creator, in the fifth and last period of the day.
vrm.6.74 Looking at Jambavan, the son of Brahma, who was naturally bequeathed with old age, an elderly person, with his body conspicuous of hundreds of arrows and a valiant person looking like an extinguishing fire, Vibhishana approached him and spoke as follows: “O Vibhishana, the leader of Rakshasas, with a great prowess! I am able to recognize you by your voice alone.
vrm.6.74 He saw the abode of Brahma the lord of creation, Kailasa the abode of Shiva the lord of dissolution, the abode of Indra the arrow discharging place of Rudra, the worshipping place of Hayagriva, the shining place at which Brahmas’ head fell down, the sun god and Kimkaras.
vrm.6.74 He saw the abode of Agni, the abode of Vaisravana son of Visrava shining like the sun, the spot where the sun was tied down, the abode of Brahma, the abode of bow belonging to Lord Shiva and the navel of the earth.
vrm.6.80 Protected by the missile presided over by Brahma, which was as efflugent as the sun, that Indrajit endowed with exceptional strength, became difficult to be attacked.
vrm.6.80 Then, Lakshmana for his part was enraged and told his brother that he would employ the missile presided over by Brahma for the purpose of killing all the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.85 "By his penance, Indrajit obtained a weapon called Brahmashira, by way of a gift from Brahma and also Horses, which are coursing at his will.
vrm.6.85 "A boon was given by Brahma to that intelligent Rakshasa as follows: "O Indrajit! That enemy of yours, who strikes while you are marching with your bow drawn, and while you have not arrived at Nikumbhila, or even while you have not offered oblations to the sacred fire, will prove to be the cause of your killing.
vrm.6.85 "That Indrajit is skilled in the use of the mystic missile presided over by Brahma.
vrm.6.85 Duly arriving at Nikumbhila, that foe conquering Lakshmana stood, bow in hand, to conquer that Indrajit, the possessor of conjuring tricks, in conformity with Brahma s ordinance.
vrm.6.90 Thus being killed by steel arrows, those Vanaras of terrible prowess sought refuge in Lakshmana, as people would take refuge in Brahma the Lord of Creation.
vrm.6.92 Brahma" the lord of creation was gratified by me, by performing a stupendous austerity for thousands of years, at the conclusion of those austerities.
vrm.6.92 "As a consequence of that austerity alone and by the grace of Brahma the lord of creation, there was never a fear for me either from the Asuras or from the Devas.
vrm.6.92 "In the course of combats with the Devas and Asuras, the armour gifted to me by Brahma, the lord of creation, which is as brilliant as the sun, could not be mutilated by those who held the thunderbolt in their fists.
vrm.6.92 "Who will, be it Indra himself, dare to attack me on the battle field now, when mounted on chariot on this field of battle, and duly wearing the aforesaid armour?" "Let that large bow of mine, which was given at that time to me along with arrows by the gracious Brahma the lord of creation, on the occasion of my combat between Devas and Asuras, be taken out today to the accompaniment of a band of musical instruments, for the purpose of killing Rama and Lakshmana in the great battle.
vrm.6.94 "The valiant Ravana, having been gifted with great boons by Brahma, is not able to understand this greatly terrific calamity, coming forth from the hand of Rama.
vrm.6.94 Brahma, the lord of creation, gratified by the austerity of Ravana, gave protection to Ravana from Devas, Danavas and Rakshasas.
vrm.6.94 "The Devas, tormented by the mighty Ravana, because of the misuse of the boon bestowed on him, worshipped Brahma the lord of creation with their glowing austerities.
vrm.6.94 "The great souled Brahma, duly gratified, spoke for the benefit of those Devas, the following words to them:
vrm.6.99 Dust began to fly up from the earth, while those frustrated Vanaras were fleeing away for they could no longer bear that missile built by Brahma himself.
vrm.6.105 "He is Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Skanda, Prajapati, Indra, Kubera the bestower of riches, Kala, Yama, Soma the moon god and Varuna, the lord of waters.
vrm.6.105 "Hail to you, the giver of victory, hail to you, the joy born of victory! Hail to you, the god with green Horses, hail to you, having thousands of rays! Hail, hail to you the son of Aditi! "Hail to you, the fierce one, hail to you the valiant one! Hail to you, the one with variegated colours! Hail to you, the awakener of the louts, hail to you, the furious one!" "Hail to you, the ruler of Brahma, Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu the infallible, the sun god, the light indwelling the solar orb, the resplendent one, the devourer of all, appearing in form of Rudra.
vrm.6.108 "O lord! You can employ a mystic missile presided over by Brahma the lord of creation.
vrm.6.108 Then, the valiant Rama, who was reminded thus by Matali, took hold of a blazing arrow, which was given by Brahma and which in turn was given to him by the glorious sage, Agastya earlier in the battle field and which looked like a hissing serpent.
vrm.6.108 Having been made formerly for Indra, by Brahma, the lord of creation of infinite strength, it was bestowed in the past on the ruler of Gods, who was desirous of conquering the three worlds.
vrm.6.111 But for Indra, where is the capacity even to behold you in battle? "This Rama is certainly a great ascetic, an eternal person, having no beginning middle or end, greater than distinguished universal spirit like Brahma, the one beyond ignorance, the nourisher, wielding a conch, a disc and a mace, wearing the Srivatsa mark on his chest, of lasting beauty, incapable of being conquered, a perpetual one, being the constant soul of the universe, truly mighty, the lord of all the worlds, the prosperous one having a great splendour and Vishnu, with a wish to benefit the worlds, assuming a human form surrounded by all the Gods in the form of Vanaras, Rama killed you, surrounded by Rakshasas.
vrm.6.117 Thereupon, Vaisravana, the King of Yakshas, Yama together with the Pitris, Indra the lord of Devas, Varuna the lord of waters, the illustrious Shiva having three eyes, Brahma the creator of all the worlds and the best among the knowers of sacred knowledge all these together reaching the City of Lanka in aerial cars, shining like the sun approached Rama.
vrm.6.117 Hearing the words of Rama, Brahma, the foremost among the knowers of Brahma the Absolute, spoke as follows: "Listen to my true word, O the truly brave lord!"
vrm.6.117 "You are Brahma, the imperishable, the Truth abiding in the middle as well as at the end of the universe.
vrm.6.117 O lord! The Devas created by Brahma are the hair on all your limbs.
vrm.6.117 Humiliation" will never be the plight of those humans who will recite this hymn in a divine ancient history, sung by Brahma, the foremost seer.
vrm.6.118 Hearing the foregoing auspicious words of Brahma, the Agni came up, taking Seetha in his arms.
vrm.6.123 “O the large eyed Seetha! Here lies Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, the tormentator of people, on whom boons were conferred by Brahma and who was killed by me for your sake.
vrm.6.123 Surya shatru was killed and another Rakshasa called Brahma shatru was too killed.
vrm.6.126 "The illustrious Rama, the destroyer of enemies, happened to meet Indra, Yama, Varuna, Maheshvara, Brahma the self born as also Dasaratha and was bestowed boons by them.
vrm.6.127 "This wonderful aerial car, with a speed of thought, which is carrying the great souled Rama, and shines brightly like the rising sun, belongs to Kubera, by the grace of Brahma.
vrm.6.128 With which crown, long ago, Manu the emperor was adorned while he was consecrated and with which, the kings followed in his line were successively adorned while they were coronated, that crown studded with precious jewels, fashioned by Brahma at the beginning of creation and dazzling with splendour, being kept according to practice on a throne adorned with many kinds of precious stones in the council hall, studded with gold, graced with abundant riches, decorated and shiningly made with most charming jewels of various kinds, and thereafter Rama duly adorned by that crown as well as jewels by the great souled Vasishta and other priests officiating at the coronation ceremony.
vrm.7.3 And on her that one cognizant of righteousness begot a child, exceedingly wonderful, endowed with energy, and adorned with all Brahma qualities.
vrm.7.3 And then the highly energetic Brahma along with Indra and the Devas,coming to that asylum.
vrm.7.3 Thereat, Brahma along with the deities gladly said in a gratified spirit, Very well I am about to create the fourth of the Protectors of creatures Yama, Indra and Varuna, the position which is sought for by thee.
vrm.7.3 Having said this, Brahma along with the Devas went to his own quarters.
vrm.7.3 On the deities with Brahma at their head, having departed for the heavenly regions, the self possessed lord of wealth of subdued senses with joined hands spoko unto his sire, saying, O reverend one, I have received the wished for boon from the great father, but the exalted lord of creatures hath not fixed any abode for me.
vrm.7.5 Fear and disterss, from these penances having struck the Devas, the Rishis and the Rakshasas, God Brahma appeared before them and addressed them thus: "O formost among the Rakshasas, stop your terrible penace, that afflicts the whole world.
vrm.7.10 Thus accosted, Brahma spoke unto the Ten necked one, Thou canst not be immotal.
vrm.7.10 Thus addressed by the creator, Brahma, the Ten necked one, O Rama, standing before him with joined hands, said, O lord of creatures, I would, O eternal one, be incapable of being slain by Suparnas and Nagas, Yakshas, Daityas, Danavas and Rakshasas, and the Devas ;for, O thou that art worshipped by the immortals, anxiety I have none from any other beings.
vrm.7.10 May my mind remain fast fixed on righteousness, even when shall happen to fall into high peril ;and may I attain Brahma knowledge without any instructions !And may every sense of mine sprung during the observance of paticular modes of life, be in unison with righteousness, so that I may practise the form of religion in harmony with any paticular mode of life !O exceedingly noble one, this best of boons, is even what is sought for by me, for nothing in this world is incapable of being attained by those attached to righteous¬ ness.

vrm.7.11 Coming to know that his daughter s sons, Ravana and his two brothers, got powerful boons form God Brahma, Sumali shed all his fear of Vishnu.
vrm.7.12 But, my child, how can I know thee now ?Who art thou? Thus addressed, the Raksha humbly said, Ten necked by name, I am the son of the ascetic, Paulastya, who was born as the third son of Brahma.
vrm.7.15 Conquering the bestower of wealth, the lord of Rakshasas, with a delighted heart, possesed himself of his Pushpaka, the car, as a sign of victory ;furnished with golden pillars, gateways set with lapises, covered with networks of pearls, having trees yielding the fruits of all seasons, endowed with the celerity of thought, ranging everywhere at will, weaing forms at pleasure, capable of coursing in the sky, with golden and jewelled stafs, and daises of polished gold, the vehicle of the gods undeteriorating, bringing delight to the mind and sight ;wonderous exceedingly :painted with images designed to fill the mind with reverence, constructed by Brahma, containing all objects of desire, charming and nonpariel not cold and not yet hot, granting gratification in every season, and graceful to the view.
vrm.7.16 I have also, O destroyer of Tripura, received a long lease of life from Brahma.
vrm.7.21 And in that conflict Pushpaka presided over by divine energy, incapable of being destroyed by virtue of Brahma power, being broken, resumed its former shape.
vrm.7.22 And with a delighted heart Vaivasvata along with the Devas led by Brahma as well as that mighty ascetic Narada, went to the celestial regions.
vrm.7.23 "Whereto his minister Prahasta replied unoRavana saying "O great king Varuna s sons are slain and the lord of waters, whom thou art inviting for battle, hath gone to the region of Brahma, to hear songs.
vrm.7.24 Beholding him thus excited, the lord Hari, with a club in his hand, thought within himself, O Rama, "I shall not slay this sinner for the satisfaction of Brahma" and assuming his own shape disappeared.
vrm.7.26 By him all the worlds have been conquered and Brahma hath been propitiated.
vrm.7.27 The extent thereof is also counted by ten thousand leagues and there are stationed closely three classes of clouds namely Agneya, Pakshaja and Brahma.

vrm.7.27 Being thus accosted Brahma said to Dasagriva O lord of Rakshasas, do thou recite it at the time of death and not every day.
vrm.7.28 Being thus accosted by the vicious souled Ravana, the deity, smiling, replied in words deep as the muttering of clouds, saying What shalt thou do with me O Dasagriva ?Thou art not to be slain by me now" Being thus addressed the Dasagriva, with folded palms said By the words of the Patriarch Brahma I shall not tread the path of death; there is none born amongst men,or the Devas who can equal me, and disregard; by virtue of his prowess, the great Patriarch s boon.
vrm.7.31 Being apprised of the plight of people brought about by him and of the death of that Rakshasa the patriarch Brahma and other gods were greatly delighted.
vrm.7.32 It is proper to make the words uttered by Brahma, truthful.
vrm.7.35 THE highly powerful Mahendra being thus defeated by Ravana s son, all the Devas, taking the patriarch Brahma before them, went to Lanka.
vrm.7.36 Hearing the words of Raghava, the ascetic Agastya, having six sorts of wealth, laughing said, like unto Brahma, speaking to Rudra O Rama, O lord of earth, traversing the earth, Ravana arrived at the city of Mahishmati, resembling the city of the Devas, where lived perpetually the deity of fire.
vrm.7.38 Like unto Brahma enteing Indra s Amaravati, he entered the city resembling the capital of Indra and filled with delighted and plump citizens.
vrm.7.38 Hearing this command of Pulastya, the king Arjuna did not utter a single world and set, most delightedly the king of Rakshasas, free Having released that foe of the Devas worshipped him with celestial ornaments and garlands and established friendship removing all enmities with Ravana before fire, and bowed unto Pulastya, the son of Brahma, he repaired to his pwn house.

vrm.7.40 Being released from the Brahma weapon Hanuman remonstrated with Ravana, and reduced Lanka into ashes like unto fire burning down earth.
vrm.7.40 Thereupon the afflicted Devas, Gandharvas, Asuras and men repaired to the Patriarch Brahma with a view to bring about the well being of created beings.
vrm.7.40 Heaing those words of the created beings, their lord the Patriarch Brahma again said "Hear, why the Vayu, being enraged, has obstructed the course of all beings.
vrm.7.40 If we do not please the son of Aditi we shall all meet with destruction," Thereupon the Patriarch Brahma, the Devas, Gandharvas, Nagas, Guhyakas and other created beings went where the wind was waiting with his own son belaboured by the king of the Devas.
vrm.7.40 Thereupon beholding that boy, on the lap of the Vayu,resembling gold and Vaishvanara, the four mouthed Brahma, the Devas, Gandharvas, Rishis, Yakshas and Rakshasas were all moved with pity.
vrm.7.41 The middle peak is much liked by the Devas, on which is situate the beautiful assemblage hall of Brahma extending over a hundred leagues.
vrm.7.41 No sooner the Patriarch Brahma, with his hands, wiped them of into the ground than a Vanara originated from those tears.
vrm.7.41 O foremost of men, as soon as that Vanara was produced, the high souled Brahma consoled him in sweet accents and said "Do thou proceed to that leading mountain where the Devas perpetually reside.
vrm.7.41 Brahma having said this, O Raghava, the foremost of Vanaras saluted that god of gods, placing his head at his feet and said to that Primaeval deity, the creator of beings and the lord of the universe.
vrm.7.41 There living on fruits and collecting honey and various flowers, he, every day, used to come to Brahma in the evening.
vrm.7.41 O Rama, in this wise he used to make an offering of excellent fruits and flowers at the feet of Brahma, the god of gods.
vrm.7.41 At this time was returning by that way, Indra, the leader of the Devas after having worshipped the feet of Brahma.
vrm.7.42 Thereupon taking them, he came to the abode of Brahma.
vrm.7.42 Beholding his son Riksharaja with his sons, Brahma, the grand father of the Devas, consoled him in diverse ways.

vrm.7.46 Ravana, with a delighted heart, neared him and addressed the celestial saint Narada with folded palms, saying "O thou gifted with six sorts of wealth, thou hast seen many a time all creations from Brahma down to an insect.
vrm.7.46 The Patriarch Brahma said that thou art subtler than the subtle.
vrm.7.47 In prowess thou art like Vishnu,in beauty thou art like two Aswins, in intellect thou art like Brihaspati and in the capacity of governing thou art like the Patriarch Brahma.
vrm.7.52 And Rama s Asoka forest was like unto Indra s Nandana and Kubera s Chitraratha made by Brahma.
vrm.7.61 Having reigned for eleven thousand years Rama shall repair to the region of Brahma.
vrm.7.64 Having imprecated a dreadful curse upon me the jolly saint Narada and the ascetic Parvata have speedily, like the wind, repaired to the region of Brahma.
vrm.7.66 Thereupon being thus deprived of his body the highly effulgent and great ascetic Vasishta went to the Patriarch Brahma with the object of acquiring from him another.
vrm.7.66 "Whereto the self sprung Brahma, of unmitigated prowess, replied.
vrm.7.66 The Patriarch Brahma having said this, Vasishta, saluting and circumambulating him, repaired to the region of Varuna.
vrm.7.72 Beholding Vishnu asleep after the destruction of the universe and knowing Vishnu of obstructed breath, the great ascetic Brahma entered his abdomen.
vrm.7.72 That great lord, ascetic Brahma, originated therefrom and was engaged in austere penances for the purpose of creating earth, air, mountains, trees, men, reptiles and all animals born from womb or egg.
vrm.7.82 Hearing those words the Patriarch Brahma replied "Although it is a source of great fear still it is not dreadful unto the Devas.
vrm.7.82 Hearing the words of the Patriarch Brahma, the Devas arrived at the battle field of Satrughna and Lavana and saw that the arrow, held by Satrughna s hands, was burning like the fire of dissolution.
vrm.7.89 Therefore to obtain a king, men approached Brahma, the god of gods and said "O deity thou hast placed Indra as ruler over the Devas ;therefore, O lord of creatures, do thou also confer upon us a king who shall be foremost among men ;by worshipping him we shall be freed from all sins.
vrm.7.89 Thereupon the Patriarch Brahma sent for Indra and other Devas and said "Do ye all give a portion of your respective energies.
vrm.7.89 Thereupon Brahma made a Khshupa or sound and therefrom originated a king under the name of Khshupa.
vrm.7.89 And in his person Brahma placed in equal proportions the energies of the Devas.
vrm.7.91 Having performed hard penances in this forest, for three thousand years I at last attained to the region of Brahma.
vrm.7.91 And albeit I had reached the Brahma region I was still being assailed by hunger and thurst.
vrm.7.91 Thereupon approaching the patriarch Brahma, the lord of three worlds, I said "O Brahma, here there is no hunger or thirst; still why have I been brought to their control? Of what iniquity of mine is this fruit? O deity, tell me upon what I shall live.
vrm.7.91 O foremost of twice born ones, from the time of hearing those words of the great Brahma, the god of gods, I have been engaged in this cursed work of feeding upon my own dead body.
vrm.7.92 Having in this wise advised Ikshwaku Manu delightedly repaired to the region of Brahma.
vrm.7.103 In time Ila attained to the excellent Brahma region and his son Pururava obtained that Pratishtana kingdom.
vrm.7.109 There arose a great uproar of eulogy from the assembly when they saw Sita following Valmiki like unto Sruti following Brahma.
vrm.7.110 The Adityas, Vasus, Rudras, Viswadevas, Maruts, Sadhyas, Siddhas, Nagas and Rishis placing Brahma before them, all came there.
vrm.7.111 Rama, having given vent to those accents under the influence of fire, the patriarch Brahma, with the consent of the Devas, said "O Rama of firm vows, O slayer of enemies, thou shouldst not grieve thus.
vrm.7.111 Having said this, the deity Brahma, the lord of the three worlds, with other Devas, repaired to the region of immortals.
vrm.7.111 The highsouled and the highly effulgent ascetics, living in Brahma s region, who were present in the assembly, obtaining Brahmas permission, waited there, to hear Ramas future carreer in the Uttarakandam.
vrm.7.114 Having reared up those two cities within five years, Rama s younger brother, the mighty armed Bharata, son of Kaikeyi, returned to Ayodhya, And like unto Vasava saluting Brahma he adored the high souled Raghava the very personation of virtue and communicated unto him duly the destruction of the Gandharvas and the establishment of the two cities.
vrm.7.117 Lord Brahma, the father of all creatures, has said that thou didst promise to preserve the three worlds.
vrm.7.121 Thereupon he said to the Jambavan, Brahma s son, Mainda, Dvivida and five others in his company: "As long as the Kali Yuga exists do ye all live.
vrm.7.123 Thereupon at that moment, Brahma, the grandfather of all encircled by all high souled Devas and with hundred kotis of celestial cars, arrived there where Kakuthstha had adressed himself to repair to heaven.
vrm.7.123 Thereupon the highly effulgent Vishnu said to the Patriarch Brahma: "It behoveth thee, O thou of good vows, to allot to those people their proper regions.
vrm.7.123 Hearing the words of Vishnu, the lord Brahma, father of all creatures, said: All these people who have come here shall go to the region named Santanaka.
vrm.7.123 This region has all the attibutes of the Brahma region and is next to it.
