vrm.1.1 "A man reading this Ramayana happens to be a Brahman, one from teaching class, he obtains excellency in his speech, and should he be Kshatriya person from ruling class, he obtains land lordship, and should he be Vyshya person from trading class, he accrues monetary gains, and should he be a Shudra person from working class, he acquires his personal excellence.
vrm.1.2 b a "Oh, Brahman, that speech of yours sprang forth at my wish alone, hence oh, eminent Sage, you shall render the legend of Rama, in its entirety.
vrm.1.5 She that Ayodhya is encompassed with Vedic scholars who always worship the ritual fire by enkindling the three kinds of ritual fires continuously, virtuous Brahman scholars in Veda s and their six ancillary subjects, and other great souls that are in similitude with great saints, and who are just like sages that are charitable donors, and that abide by the truth.
vrm.1.7 They do not persecute Brahman s and Kshatriya s to fill up the treasury, and high degree punishments will be given on assessing that person s, or the offender s strength and weakness.
vrm.1.8 Then Sumantra gone quickly, for he in quickness is a dauntless one, and fetched all of the clerics like Suyajna, Vamadeva, Jaabaali, Kashyapa, and even Sage Vashishta, and also those other eminent Brahman that are Vedic scholars.
vrm.1.8 Then the Brahman scholars along with Sage Vashishta and all other important personalities in their turn have blessed and honoured him, saying that splendid is this idea.
vrm.1.8 On hearing those words of that best king, and what that is spoken earlier, then the virtue knowing Brahman scholars hailing that best king took leave of him and wentaway as they have come.
vrm.1.8 b, a Then on sending off those Brahman scholars, the king spoke this way to the ministers.
vrm.1.9 "Not knowing others, that Brahman the best, namely Rishyasringa, will always be abiding his father and he will follow celibacy of two kinds Brahmanical vows namely Vratitva, Praajaapatya
vrm.1.9 "Oh! King, having brought Sage Rishyasringa and honouring him well with good care, procedurally give him your daughter Shanta in marriage to that Vedic Brahman and the son of Sage Vibhandaka.
vrm.1.9 "After thinking over they will say as a second thought, and having found a solution with a plan to bring that sage, we will fetch that Brahman and also by that no stigma will occur.
vrm.1.10 "Who you are? Why you move lonely in these deep and desolate forests, why you conduct yourself like this? Oh! Brahman, we are interested to know.
vrm.1.10 Take these important fruits of ours, oh, Brahman, you be safe, oh, holy one.
vrm.1.10 "After the departure of all them the courtesans, that Brahman Rishyasringa, the grandson of Sage Kaashyapa, is disturbed at heart and even behaved sadly.
vrm.1.10 a Then on seeing the arrival of that Brahman, the courtesans felt happy at heart, and all of those courtesans on surrounding him said, "oh, gentle one, welcome to the threshold of our hermitage.
vrm.1.10 "While that great soul ad Brahman Rishyasringa while being brought into Anga Kingdom, then the Rain god quickly showered rain in Anga kingdom to the delight of the world.
vrm.1.10 "Towards that Brahman Rishyasring who is coming along with rains into his own kingdom Anga Kingdom, the king Romapada has gone towards that sage and bowed his head down, and paid respects touching the ground, and offered water customarily with dedication and the king besought beneficence of the best one, Rishyasringa to save from the fury of his father Sage Vibhandaka, even after knowing the king s pursuit in bringing Rishyasringa to this country.
vrm.1.11 On receiving that Brahman, Sage Rishyasringa, at the behest of his
vrm.1.11 That king, the desirer of glory, the knower of virtue and the lord of people, namely Dasharatha will be requesting that best Brahman Rishyasringa with his palms adjoined in supplication for the conduct of ritual, for progeny and even for his heavenly abodes, and that king of all the quarters of earth will accomplish those desires from that eminent Brahman Rishyasringa.
vrm.1.11 On hearing the word of advise from charioteer, Dasharatha became gladsome and made Sumantra to reiterate to that sage also, for his approval, then Dasharatha travelled to the place where that Brahman Rishyasringa is, along with the inmates of palace chambers and ministers too.
vrm.1.11 On crossing over the rivers and forests slowly and steadily Dasharatha entered that kingdom where that eminent Brahman is there.
vrm.1.11 b, a Then Dasharatha saw that best Brahman who he is nearby king Romapada, andwho is resplendent like ritual fire.
vrm.1.11 king Dasharatha, and addressed these words to that Brahman sage and his son in law, Sage Rishyasringa You may proceed along with your wife.
vrm.1.11 b, a Then all the citizens are very happy on seeing that Brahman, Sage Rishyasringa, who is well honoured and being entered into the city by their king Dasharatha, as has been done once by Indra when he entered sage Kashyapa s son Vamana, the dwarfish boy and the incarnation of Vishnu, into heavens, and thus those citizens felt that their human lord Dasharatha vies with divine lord Indra.
vrm.1.13 "Let my ritual be performed scripturally, oh eminent Brahman, let it be conducted in such a way that no obstacle occurs even in its ancillary functions.
vrm.1.13 Then that reverent Brahman Vashishta said to king, "Whatever that is requested or decided by you, I will see that all of them are materialised accordingly.
vrm.1.13 Then Sage Vashishta then summoned and spoke to elderly Brahman scholars, and elderly architects who are all proficient and elderly experts in conducting the construction of the ritual hall etc.
vrm.1.13 Then, that satisfied saint and eminent Brahman Vashishta, spoke this way to all of them, "nothing is to be endowed to anyone either with disrespect or deceptively, the deeds done with disrespect will kill the donor and there is no doubt about it.
vrm.1.14 In these days of ritual none found there to be weary or hungry, and there is no single unscholarly person, nor any Brahman without at least a hundred apprentices.
vrm.1.14 That descendent of Raghava dynasty gave an excellent hand ornament to someone who is an impoverished Brahman and who is beseeching.
vrm.1.14 b, a That best Brahman Rishyasringa saying yes to the proposal, said this to king Dasharatha, "oh, king, there will be four sons to you that ennoble your dynasty.
vrm.1.18 On the departure of visiting kings, then that fortunate king Dasharatha entered the city Ayodhya, keeping eminent Brahman priests ahead of him in the procession.
vrm.1.18 b, a Oh, Brahman, as I am the one who is delighted for your arrival, and as you are the most eligible recipient from me, what is that choicest object of yours to be fulfilled by me, and in which way.
vrm.1.18 could see a great Brahman like you visiting my home, therefore the sun appears to have dawned in my night.
vrm.1.18 b, a Oh, Brahman, thereby your arrival at my place is surprising and
vrm.1.18 b, a Oh, Brahman, this is the great prosperity that bechanced on me, and this is propriety in its entirety that bechanced on me, as a result of your arrival.
vrm.1.20 Otherwise, oh, Brahman with best vows, if you so wish to take Rama along with you, you lead him off along with me, and along with my four kinds of troops.
vrm.1.20 Oh, Brahman, how Rama, or my forces, or I myself have to retaliate those Rakshasas that are deceitful militants.
vrm.1.20 a My boyish son is godlike and unfledged in warfare, oh, Brahman, and he is the one who alleviates me from Punnama Naraka the Hell of sonless fathers.
vrm.1.20 Thus, by the incongruous talk of Dasharatha, the outstanding Brahman and son of Sage Kushi, namely sage Vishvamitra is overwhelmed with outrageous anger by his mentation, and that fire like glorious sage looked like the ritual fire into which many inflammable oblations are offered, and which is drenched with a lot of clarified butter, whereby it is flaring up its tongues.
vrm.1.24 b, a "Once upon a time, oh, Rama, mortal impurities of filth and hunger completely stained Indra when he eliminated Vritra, as he committed the sin of killing of a Brahman, where Vritra was incidentally a Brahman.
vrm.1.26 b, a "The sons of Prajapati Krishasva who are valiant by their virtue and who possess ascetic strength, oh, Brahman, they may be offered to Raghava.
vrm.1.27 The comprehension of which invoking hymns of the missiles is impossible even to Devas with their sections and subsections of procedures, that Brahman dedicated such hymns to Raghava.
vrm.1.28 "Oh, great saint, where are those murderers of Brahmans? Oh, venerable one, at which place those evil minded sinners and evildoers will be coming to hinder your ritual? And where, oh, Brahman, I have to safeguard your ritual ceremonies, and Rakshasas too are to be eliminated? Oh, eminent sage, what is that place? I would like to hear all of it.
vrm.1.35 Oh, Brahman, in which of the two ways, namely by fordless waters or by fordable water with dunes, we have to cross this river? When Rama spoke to him thus sage Vishvamitra replied, "I propose the same route by which these great sages are going.
vrm.1.36 "This admirable discourse given by you about Ganga is exhaustive in righteousness, oh, Brahman, and it will be apt of you to tell emphatically about the divine and earthly legend of the elder daughter of Himavanta, namely Ganga, for you are aware to expatiate upon it.
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 "I am interested to listen this episode exhaustively, oh, Brahman, let good betide you, how my ancestor Sagara had completed the Vedic ritual, really.
vrm.1.50 "Oh, highly fortunate sage, this place abounds with many thousands of Brahmans who are experts in Vedic practises and who seem to be the dwellers of numerous provinces, and also discernable are the cottages of sages rife with hundreds of carts full with their ceremonial chattels, as such oh, Brahman, a campsite may be decided for us too, as I discern every inch is inhabited.
vrm.1.50 b, a "Oh, Brahman, at which Vedic ritual hall you have arrived along with so many sages that happens to be mine, whereby, oh, eminent saint, I feel that I am honoured and hallowed.
vrm.1.53 Or, oh, eminent Brahman, if you yearn either for gems or gold, I gift that much of everything as much as you can yearn, let Shabala be given to me.
vrm.1.54 Oh, Brahman, unstated is that the might of sovereignty as mightier than the might of sagacity.
vrm.1.56 "The assemblages of saints then extolled the best meditator Vashishta saying, oh, Brahman, infallible is your prowess, but bear this combustion of missile by your own combustive power.
vrm.1.56 Oh, Brahman, be gracious, for you are the best among the best meditators.
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.1.61 "But Indra impounded the animal of the principal of that ritual, namely king Ambarisha, and when that animal is really vanished, the officiant Brahman of the ritual spoke this to that king.
vrm.1.64 A highly resplendent Brahman who is ascetically powerful redeems you, oh, Rambha, who are now blemished by my anger.
vrm.1.64 Till such time as I acquire Brahman hood with the merit of my own ascesis I will be breathless and foodless, even if it is going to take endless years, and while I am in ascesis my bodily organs indeed will not undergo any deterioration.
vrm.1.65 "On one day when those thousand years of ascesis with the rigorous pledge of Vishvamitra are being completed, and when he started to eat his meal, oh, Rama, best of Raghu s dynasty, Indra arrived there disguising himself as a Brahman and requested for the readily available meal.
vrm.1.65 b, "Then that godly Vishvamitra willingly gave away all the readied meal to that Brahman, and as no meal is leftover by Brahman Indra, that great ascetic Vishvamitra starved himself.
vrm.1.65 Vishvamitra did not speak a little to the Brahman in dissent as he is abided by his pledge of muteness, and he again remained in muteness and breath control.
vrm.1.65 b, a If Brahman hood and eternality have befallen on me, let the quintessence of AUM and vaSat syllables, and even all Veda s patronise me.
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.1.65 "When his aim is effectuated Vishvamitra ambled all over the earth abiding in ascesis, and oh, Rama, this great souled sage Vishvamitra achieved Brahman hood in this way.
vrm.1.65 On narrating the legend of Vishvamitra in this way that best Brahman and great resplendent Sage Shataananda took respite.
vrm.1.65 b, a "Oh, Brahman, I stand consecrated just by your graceful glance, and oh, great saint, I reckon that I have achieved many boons just glancing at you.
vrm.1.65 b, a "Oh, great resplendent Brahman, myself and the noble souled Rama have heard about your great ascesis when Sage Shataananda extolled it comprehensively.
vrm.1.67 Here is that exquisite bow, oh, Brahman, which is held as a time honoured bow by the lineage of Janaka kings, and with which even the highly forceful kings are rendered inefficient to take aim with it, previously.
vrm.1.67 Now I wish to get the feel of this supreme bow, oh, Brahman, and I shall try to brandish it, or even try to take aim with it.
vrm.1.67 Should you give consent, oh, Brahman, my ministers will be hastened to speedily go to Ayodhya in chariots, oh, Kaushika, let safeness betide you, and one and all by this matrimony.
vrm.1.72 Oh, Brahman, the savants acclaim that part of the day as the best for wedding ceremonies when both of the pre Phalguni and post Phalguni stars are available, and on such a time where post Phalguni is ruling, for which Bhaga is the presiding deity for progeny.
vrm.1.72 That lord of people king Dasharatha has righteously donated hundred thousand Cows to Brahman s, in the name of each of his four sons.
vrm.1.74 On seeing him who is perilous in his propensity and flaming like the Ritual fire, Vashishta and the other prominent Brahman s who are the practisers of meditation and fire oblations have come together and started to susurrate, up and down.
vrm.1.75 "Aren t you a Brahman with inviolable ascesis, and whose rancour on Kshatriya s has calmed down long back.
vrm.1.76 "Oh, Bhargava Rama, whatsoever endeavour you have strived for freeing yourself from the indebtedness towards your father, I have heard of them, and oh, Brahman, we appreciate for your achieving that freeness from your paternal debt, but.
vrm.1.76 "Oh, Rama of Bhargava, even if you are a Brahman you are eliminable, but because of your relationship with Vishvamitra, and because you are a venerable one for me, I am disinclined to release this arrow that exterminates your life.
vrm.1.77 a When the citizenry and city dwelling Brahman s have received him from a distance, that illustrious king Dasharatha followed by his phenomenal and praiseworthy sons then entered his happy house and home, which is like the lofty and lordly Himalayan palazzo.
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.2.5 Vasishta, who is the best of knowers of Veda, who is expert in mantras, who is firm in austerities and who is divine, said to Dasaratha "I agree to it" and personally went to Rama s house on a chariot which was ready and quite suitable for a Brahman so as to advise Rama to undertake a fast with mantras performed by Rama, a knower of mantras.
vrm.2.32 "Oh, Lakshmana! Which Brahman is studying Taittiriya a school of Yajurveda, a preceptor, a man of conformity a knower of Vedas, serving Kausalya with his devotion and blessing, to him see that he is duly gifted conveyance, servant maids and silken clothing till he gets satisfied.
vrm.2.72 Kaikeyi, a fool thing herself to be learned, after hearing the queries of the virtuous Bharata, delightfully spoke the following words: Not even a little of belonging to a Brahman was stolen by Rama,No harm was done by him either to a rich or to a poor virtuous man.
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.3.11 Disguising in Bhraman s semblance and speaking sophisticatedly that Ilvala used to invite Brahmans for the purpose of obsequial ceremonies, where Brahman are fed after usual ceremony to appeases their Pitris.
vrm.3.14 "Oh, the best among men Rama, the wife of great soul Kashyapa, lady Manu procreated humans, Brahman s, Kshatriya s, Vyasya s, and Shudra s.
vrm.3.14 "The Brahman s emerged from face, the Kshatriya s from chest, the Vyasya s from two thighs, and the Shudra s from two feet, thus we hear from the scriptures viz.
vrm.3.46 Quickly taking hold of intervallic time then the ten headed Ravana approached Vaidehi adopting an aspect of a sanyaasi, a meandering Brahman friar.
vrm.3.46 b, a That disgraceful Ravana made advances in a graceful mien of Brahman almsman to Vaidehi who is thinking over her husband, like the slow moving Saturn making advance to Star Citra which will be ominous.
vrm.3.46 b, a Like a wellspring shrouded by grass, enshrouded in a decent getup of a Brahman friar, in a trice Ravana leeringly stood before of Vaidehi, the admirable wife of Rama.
vrm.3.46 b When the wicked minded Ravana praised her in this way, Vaidehi the princess from Mithila has seen him who has arrived in the getup of Brahman and started to revere him with all the respects affordable to a casual guest.
vrm.3.46 Maithili explored him who arrived with the features of a Brahman, with a saffron robe and alms bowl, and finding no reason to refute him flatly, as he has come like a Brahman, she invited him as a Brahman.
vrm.3.46 Or Maithili explored him who arrived with the features of a Brahman, with a saffron robe and alms bowl, and as he came with an unimperilling appearance of a Brahman, she invited him as she would ordinarily invite a real Brahman.
vrm.3.46 "Oh, Brahman, this is the Darbha grass seat and you be seated comfortably, here is water, receive it for hand and feet wash, here is the forest grown victuals for your sake.
vrm.3.46 Ravana thoroughly observed that wife of the king, Maithili, when she invited him talking civilities contextual in inviting a guest, that too Brahman sanyasi, and he firmed up his mind to abduct her even forcibly, and started to dedicate himself for destruction.
vrm.3.47 When Ravana whose intention is to abduct her has enquired thus, then on the basis of his Brahman friar s mien Seetha informed about herself on her own.
vrm.3.47 Thinking briefly that, he is a Brahman and an untimely guest, he will indeed curse me if he is not replied, Seetha spoke this sentence.
vrm.3.47 Oh, Brahman, this is the unalterable and unsurpassable vow of Rama.
vrm.3.47 Such as we are, oh, eminent Brahman, we three are moving about the impenetrable Dandaka forest just by our own mettle as we fell down from kingdom owing to Kaikeyi.
vrm.3.47 b, "Such as you are, oh, Brahman, you may make mention of your name, parentage and caste, in their actuality.
vrm.3.49 Immediately discarding the gentle form of a Brahman friar, that younger brother of Kubera, Ravana, assumed his own ferocious form which is similar to the form of Terminator.
vrm.3.49 a On discarding that guise of a Brahman friar that sovereign of Rakshasas Ravana educed his own physique and then that mighty bodied one attired in reddish clothing stood before Maithili observing that gem of a lady.
vrm.4.17 "How you are answerable to gentlemen, Rama, when you have done this detestable deed of killing an unoffending one like me with your arrow? "A regicide, a Brahman cide, a cow slayer, a thief, an inveterate killer, an atheist, and an younger brother who marries before his elder, all of them will go to hell.
vrm.4.65 Once I have performed circumambulation around the Omnipresent and Eternal Vishnu in His incarnation as Trivikrama, when He grandiosely increased His physique from that of a Divine Dwarfish Brahman boy to that of an Omnidirectional Being, thus filling whole of the Universe to tread
vrm.6.119 "O great one! O the destroyer of adversaries! Rama has been spoken of as the unmanifest and the imperishable Brahman the absolute, established by the Vedas, the heart of Gods and the secret of all Gods.
vrm.7.10 And, O Brahman, seven Apsaras in Nandana, ten attendants of Mahendra, as well as sages and human beings, have been devoured by this one.
vrm.7.20 Therefore, O great Brahman, intent upon slaying the Vaivasvata s son, I will go by this way which leadeth to the king the ofspring of the sun.
vrm.7.27 Thou art three eyed, assumest many forms and brilliant as the Ajuta suns ;thou art the lord of all Devas, the foremost deity and wearest bearded locks having the impressions of the moon ;thou art connected with Brahman, wothy of being resorted to and identical with all created beings.
vrm.7.28 Having conferred this boon upon Ravana the Grandfather, sprung from lotus, speedily returned to the region of Brahman.
vrm.7.35 Ahalya having said this, Gautama replied "In the race of Ikshwakus, there shall be born a highly effulgent and mighty car warrior, known in the world as Rama ;for performing the rites of a Brahman, the mighty armed Vishnu, assuming a human form, shall repair to the forest.
vrm.7.35 And thenceforward the wife, of that ascetic chanting the themes of Brahman, engaged in austere penances.
vrm.7.36 Therupon having bowed unto Agastya the foremost of ascetics, the highly effulgent Rama again surprisingly said: O Brahman, O foremost of twice born ones, when that cruel Ravana journeyed over the earth, was it void of people? Was there no king, or prince on earth to administer punishment unto him ?Were all the kings then shorn of their strength and prowess? And many kings I hear were vanquished and driven out by him with various excellent weapons.
vrm.7.38 This my kingdom, these my sons, this my wife and myself are all at thy disposal do thou order me, O Brahman, what I may do for thee.
vrm.7.44 Ravana, I have thus related to you everything about the Narayana, the great Brahman, eternal and incomprehensible.
vrm.7.63 Accidentally on that occasion, a cow with calf belonging to a poor Brahman, living upon low means, was given away along with other kine.
vrm.7.63 Thereupon the Brahman called the cow by the name given by him saying Savala", come.
vrm.7.63 The cow heard that and recognizing the voice of the Brahman followed him.
vrm.7.63 The cow was old and weak so they both, With mutual consent, conferred that upon another Brahman, O Lakshmana, the king Nriga is still sufering from that dreadful curse.
vrm.7.66 Hearing the words of the effulgent Rama, Lakshmana, the slayer of enemies, said with folded hands "Having thus cast of their bodies how did that Brahman worshipped by the Devas and the king regain them ?"Having been thus accosted by Lakshmana, Rama, the descendant of Ikshwakus and the foremost of men, replied "Having renounced their persons both Nimi and the pious Vasishta, having asceticism for their wealth, were metamorphosed into air.
vrm.7.68 O Brahman, when a tree is neglected, those who live thereon are also distressed.
vrm.7.68 Having thus conferred solace unto his daughter, that leading Brahman, effulgent as the sun, returned therefrom.
vrm.7.71 In the house of a certain Brahman there lives a beggar by the name of Sarvarthasiddha i.
vrm.7.78 Hearing the words of the Rakshasa in the guise of a Brahman, the king ordered his expert cook?, saying "Do ye soon prepare such dishes of meat as may satisfy my preceptor Vasishta.
vrm.7.80 Thereupon when the night set in Satrughna accosted Bhrigu s son Chavanya saying, "O Brahman, how powerful is Lavana ?And what is the strength of his dart ?What persons before had been destroyed by this dart in conflict ?"Hearing the words of the high souled descendant of Raghu, Satrughna, the highly effulgent Chavanya replied saying
vrm.7.86 Some days having passed in this wise a villager, an old Brahman, arrived at the palace gate with a dead body.
vrm.7.86 That Brahman, stricken with afection, again and again bewailed in various piteous accents, exclaiming "What henious crime had I committed in my pristine birth that I have been constrained to witness the death of my son.
vrm.7.86 Being overwhelmed with sorrow that old Brahman again and again remonstrated with the king in these piteous words and afterwards covered the death body of his son.
vrm.7.87 Hearing those sorrowful words of the Brahman, Rama was greatly sorry and sent for Vasishta, Vamadeva, his brothers, citizens and councillors.
vrm.7.87 "This Brahman is waiting at the Palace gate.
vrm.7.88 At thou a Brahman, or an irrepresible Kshatriya or the third caste Vaisya or a Sudra? Do thou speak the truth and thou shalt be crowned with auspiciousness.
vrm.7.89 It is for my iniquitous conduct that this only son of the Brahman hath met with untimely death.
vrm.7.89 Having been initiated, that highly effulgent Brahman saint hath lived within waters for twelve years ;his vow hath now terminated O Kakuthstha, we shall now go to welcome that Muni.
vrm.7.89 Thou hast observed piety and hast given back life unto the dead child of the Brahman.
vrm.7.89 And having taken that excellent ornament, Dasarathi asked the great saint Kumbhayoni, saying "Whence hast thou obtained this celestial ornament of a wondrous make ?Who hast given thee this ?O Brahman, I do accost thee thus out of cuiosity.
vrm.7.91 O Rama, hearing my words pregnant with sound reasoning, that heavenly being, with folded hands, said: "Hear, O Brahman, from what unavoidable cause hath proceeded this happy and again painful incident.
vrm.7.91 O Brahman, for many long years I have been living upon this corpse still I have not done with it.
vrm.7.91 O Brahman, I do confer upon thee, gold, riches various clothes, eatables, excellent ornaments and diverse other objects of desire and enjoyment.
vrm.7.92 Hearing the wondrous words of the great saint Kumbhayoni, Rama, out of great curiousity and impotance of the subject, again asked him, saying "O Brahman, why was that dense forest, in which the king Sweta used to perform hard penances, divested of birds and animals? And how did he proceed to that forest devoid of men and animals for undergoing penances? I wish to hear the truth.
vrm.7.94 O Rama, in the golden age, the province between the mountains Vindhya and Saivala comprising Danda s teritories, imprecated by the Brahman saint, in consequence of the iniquity of the vicious souled, was reduced into a desert.
vrm.7.98 And the sin, consequent upon the destruction of a Brahman, pursuing him vehemently, entered into his person.
vrm.7.98 Thou hast slain this Vritra but the sin of slaying a Brahman has visited Indra.
vrm.7.102 Being comforted by those words, the high minded king Ila, striken with distress in consequence of the destruction of his servants, poorly replied "O Brahman, I shall renounce my own kingdom.
vrm.7.102 O Brahman, my eldest son, the highly illustrious Sasavindu, the foremost of the pious, shall be the owner of my kingdom.
vrm.7.102 O Brahman, renouncing my servants and wives of the country I shall not be able to wait here.
vrm.7.110 Still, O Brahman, what thou hast commanded shall be carried out; let Sita produce testimony of the purity of her character.
vrm.7.110 O Brahman, vilification of the people is very powerful.
