vrm.2.20 Rama crossed the first gate and saw old Brahmanas who were perfect in Vedas and duly honoured by the king.
vrm.2.24 Brahmanas also with right voes are to be worshipped.
vrm.2.25 "Oh, son with magnificent arms! Protected by your service to father and service to mother as well as truthfulness, you will belong lived" "Oh, Rama, the best among men!

vrm.2.30 "Give valuable gifts to Brahmanas and food to mendicants.
vrm.2.45 Sacrifices have been commenced by many of those Brahmanas that have come here.
vrm.2.72 Hence, meet the chiefs of Brahmanas like Vasishta and others who know the rituals, perform soon the sacred rites to the king and become crowned as a king yourself to the earth, being not depressed in spirit.
vrm.2.81 He ordered the messengers as follows: Quickly bring Brahmanas, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, ministers and troop commanders coolly.
vrm.2.82 Thereupon, from every house, warriors merchants, Shudras and Brahmanas rose up and harnessed their chariots to Camels, mules, well bred Elephants and Horses.
vrm.2.83 Thousands of Brahmanas, well composed, renowned for their virtuous conduct, versed in sacred scriptures and riding on bullock carts, accompanied Bharata.
vrm.2.88 Rama" will be enthroned in ayodhya, by Brahmanas the Twice born! May the Gods grant that my desire be made a reality.
vrm.2.89 Vasishta, the royal priest and whatever elderly Brahmanas were present there ascended the boats, even before Bharata, Shatrughna, Kausalya, Sumitra.
vrm.2.98 "I too, surrounded by the ministers, citizens, priests and Brahmanas shall personally go round the entire forest on foot.
vrm.2.107 "O, the valiant Bharata! Go to Ayodhya along with Shatrughna and all the Brahmanas and give joy to the people there.
vrm.2.109 Hearing that argument of atheism inuntiated by Jabali, Rama the prince with a terrible energy, without tolerating his words, spoke in reproach to him as follows: "The virtuous say that truth, piety, valour, compassion for all beings, polite speech and worship of Brahmanas, Gods and unexpected guests are the paths to heaven.
vrm.2.109 Therefore, Brahmanas offer oblations in the sacred fire and practise noble deeds.
vrm.2.119 Thus addressed by those Brahmanas having great asceticism, who, with joined palms paid obedience to him and blessed his journey, Rama the harasser of his foes entered the forest with his consort along with Lakshmana, as sun enters a mass of clouds.
vrm.6.10 Vibhishana of great strength, saw Brahmins who know Mantras sacred texts and Brahmanas, respected and offered with pots filled of curd, clarified butter as well as with flowers and unbroken rice.
vrm.6.57 While some Rakshasas propitiated the Agni with their offerings and paid homage to Brahmanas, a fragrant freeze bearing the scent of clarified butter, began to blow.
vrm.6.67 While that mighty Kumbhakarna, the enemy of Brahmanas and Devas was killed in battle, the earth and mountains shook.
vrm.6.70 That terrific mace, reaching the body of Mahaparshva, the fierce Rakshasa, the enemy of Devas, sacrificial rites and Brahmanas, broke his chest.
vrm.6.90 The gratified the Devas, Gandharvas and the Danavas said: Let the Brahmanas move about cheerfully, now that their trouble has ceased.
vrm.6.95 A clamour was heard, saying "There comes the ruler of Rakshasas, the abductor of Seetha, the destroyer of Brahmanas, the enemy of Gods, notorious for his bad conduct, accompanied by his canopy and pair of whisks, to fight with Rama, the foremost among the Raghu dynasty.
vrm.6.107 At that time, those Gods along with troops of sages, saying "May all be well with the Cows and Brahmanas, May all the worlds endure forever, May Rama conquer Ravana!", saw a terrific battle between Rama and Ravana, which caused one s hair to stand on end.
vrm.6.111 Placing Ravana, the lord of Rakshasas, who was covered with linen, accompanied by blasts of various musical instruments as well as panegyrists singing his praise the Brahmanas stood around him with their faces filled in tears.
vrm.6.119 "Fortunately has the fear born of Ravana which increased the severe darkness on the entire world has been removed by you, on the battle field, O Rama!" "You are fit to go to the heaven, by comforting the depressed Bharata and the illustrious Kausalya as well as seeing Kaikeyi and Sumitra, the mother of Lakshmana having got the sovereignty of Ayodhya, bringing delight to your friends, stabilizing the back bone in the race of Ikshvaku, getting excellent glory by performing a Horse sacrifice and by granting riches to Brahmanas.
vrm.6.124 "That joy and sorrow experienced by you in abundance while residing in Janasthana forest in completely known to me, O Rama!" "While you were busy in protecting all the ascetics who prayed you for safeguarding the interests of Brahmanas, this irreproachable wife of yours was taken away by Ravana.
vrm.6.127 Placing the wooden sandals of his brother Rama on his head and taking the white Parasol intended for Rama which was adorned with white garlands and two white whisks decorated with gold, eminently worthy of kings, accompanied by the foremost of Brahmanas, leaders of the guilds of traders and artisans, including the mercantile class, surrounded by the counselors with garlands and bell shaped sweets in their hands, cheered by the blass of conches and kettle drums, duly praised by panegyrists, the great souled Bharata, for his part, whose mind was set on righteousness, who was well versed with the secret of virtue, who was emaciated through fasting, who felt miserable, was clad in the bark of trees and the sking of a black antelope, who experienced joy for the first time in hearing the news of the arrival of his brother then went in advance, along with his ministers, to meet Rama.
vrm.6.128 Rama the foremost among men, first gave away to Brahmanas, a hundred thousand Horses and Cows that have lately calved as well as a hundred bulls.
vrm.6.128 Rama again gave to Brahmanas, thirty crores of gold coins, all kinds of very costly jewels and raiment.
vrm.7.37 Thereupon flowers and fried paddy were showerfd upon him by the Brahmanas and citizens.
vrm.7.60 O charioteer, the opinion of the citizens is by no means just; consequently what shall we gain by performing such a bad action for fame as the exile of Sita ?"Hearing those words of Lakshmana, the wise Sumantra reverentially replied "Be not aggrieved for Sita, O Saumitri Formerly in the presence of thy sire the Brahmanas related this account of Sita s exile.
vrm.7.63 I have heard, O foremost df men, that there lived in the days of yore a highly illustrious, truthful and pure minded king, ever devoted unto the Brahmanas, by the name of Nriga.
vrm.7.63 Once on a time at the sacred pilgrimage of Pushpaka that king conferred upon the Brahmanas one Koti of kine with calvesadornedwithgoldenornaments.
vrm.7.63 So there arose a great quarrel between the two learned Brahmanas.
vrm.7.64 Hearing the words of the highly effulgent Rama, Lakshmana, conversant with discrimanative knowledge replied with folded hands, saying "O Kakutstha, it is for a very simple folly that the two Brahmanas imprecated that curse upon the king Nriga, dreadful as the rod of Vana.
vrm.7.64 Hearing of the depature of the Brahmanas he sent for his priest, minister, the citizens and subjects and filled with sorrow said: Do ye all hear attentively my words.
vrm.7.64 Thou hast seen, with thine own eyes, the curse that the Brahmanas have given me being enraged for a very trifling folly of mine.
vrm.7.64 Having entered the den filled with many jewels the high souled king began to spend his days in the satisfaction of the curse imprecated by the two Brahmanas.
vrm.7.70 Therupon having performed the morning rites the lotus eyed Rama, in the early morning, sat on his royal throne and in the company of Brahmanas and citizens enaged in looking into state affairs.
vrm.7.70 Hearing the words of Lakshmana the dog said "We cannot enter into the houses of divinities, kings and Brahmanas nor can we go there where is fire, Indra, the sun or the wind, for we are the vilest born ;so I cannot enter there.
vrm.7.73 But, without knowing the task, thos hast bound thyself by a promise for the glory of the Brahmanas.
vrm.7.76 And the Kshatriyas and the Brahmanas.
vrm.7.76 And when Satrughna had been installed by Rama of untiring deeds, the citizens as well as the Brahmanas of vast Vedic attainments experienced excess of joy.
vrm.7.87 Thereupon having entered the apatment in the company of Vasishta, eight Brahmanas blessed the king Rama, resembling a celestial, saying may victory crown thee.
vrm.7.87 Markandeya, Maudgalya, Vamadeva, Kashyapa, Katyayana, Javali, Gautama, and Narada these eight leading Brahmanas having taken their seats, Rama with folded hands, saluted them.
vrm.7.87 At that age save the Brahmanas no other caste used to lead the life of an inchoret.
vrm.7.87 In the golden age the Brahmanas were nore powerful than the Kshatriyas.
vrm.7.87 But in the Treta age the Brahmanas and the Kshatriyas were equally powerful.
vrm.7.87 Thus in the Treta age, not beholding prominence of the Brahmanas greater than that of the Kshatriyas, Manu and other religious leaders of the time composed the Sastra describing and letting in the four divisions of castes.
vrm.7.87 Duing the Treta age the Brahmanas and Kshatriyas engaged in austere penances and the Vaisyas and Sudras engaged in serving them.
vrm.7.87 And the greatest piety of the Vaisyas and Sudras at that time consisted of serving the Brahmanas and Kshatriyas and specially for the Sudras the highest religion was to serve people of all,Varnas.
vrm.7.87 O foremost of kings, at the end of the Treta age, Vaisyas and Sudras being fully overpowered by the sin of untruth, the Brahmanas and the Kshatriyas also grew feeble.
vrm.7.89 Thereupon meditating upon the duties of the Kshatriyas, the heroic Rama, the foremost of the intelligent, said "O illustrious Sir, the Brahmanas only can accept presents how can the Kshatriyas do ?To take gifts is the function of the Brahmanas for Kshatriyas it is a source of censure.
vrm.7.99 portion I shall enter into the persons of those who shall slay innocent Brahmanas.
vrm.7.103 Hearing the words of Mahadeva, the Brahmanas, having propitiated him with great devotion, prayed for Ila s manhood.
vrm.7.104 Hearing the words of Rama, Lakshmana, of unmitigated prowess, invited all those Brahmanas and approached Rama.
vrm.7.104 And the Brahmanas too, beholding the irrepressible celestial, like Raghava, welcomed him with blessings.
vrm.7.104 And being informed from the Brahmanas of many unheard of virtues of Ashwamedha, Rama was greatly delighted.
vrm.7.104 O thou having long arms, do thou also invite the Rishis, having asceticism for their wealth and other pious Brahmanas living in various provinces.
vrm.7.104 And let the highly illustious Bharata, with children, old men, Brahmanas, citizens, servants, cashiers, mothers, wives and the golden image of my wife to be initiated at the sacrifice, go before.
vrm.7.104 And the highly powerful Vanaras with Sugriva and Brahmanas engaged in the work of distribution.
vrm.7.105 The high souled Vanaras, with Sugriva, being self controlled engaged in attending upon the Brahmanas.
vrm.7.106 "Do ye carefully and delightedly sing the whole of Ramayana in the highly holy hermitages, of the Rishis, in the homes where perpetual fire is kept up by the Brahmanas, in streets and palaces, at the gate of Rama s house, in the sacrificial arena and before all Ritvikas.
vrm.7.107 Thereupon taking leave from business for some time and inviting the great ascetic Valmiki, kings, learned men, persons well versed in Nyaya, Puranas and science of words, all old men, twice born ones, those conversant with the signs of music, Brahmanas desirous of hearing the Ramayana, persons deep read in palmistry, Gandharvas, citizens, all those who have mastered the use of words, letters and Samasas, those who have studied well metres, those well informed in the science of music, those well versed in astronomy, those who are well up in the knowledge of rites and ceremonies, those expert in the despatch of business, logicians whose fame has spread far and wide, those well versed in reasonings and arguments, poets, historians, Vedic Brahmanas, painters, and songsters Rama resquested Lava and Kusa lovingly to sing the song before the assembly.
vrm.7.112 Having conferred various gifts upon the kings, Rakshasas, Vanaras, and leading Brahmanas, Rama sent them away and meditating upon Sita s absence entered Ayodhya.
vrm.7.122 After the night had expired the highly illustious Rama having a spacious breast and eyes like lotus petals said to the priest: Let the brilliant umbrellas Agnihotra, and Vajapeya go with the Brahmanas before, which look well in the great road.
vrm.7.122 And also went with him the four Vedas in the shape of the Brahmanas, the all protecting Gayatri, Omkara and Vasatkara.
