vrm.1.1 "Who is that courageous one, who controlled his ire, who is brilliant, non jealous and even whom do the Devas fear, when provoked to war.
vrm.1.1 b, a "That trio of Seetha, Rama and Lakshmana on treading forest after forest, and on crossing rivers with plethoric waters, reached the hermitage of Sage Bharadwaja, and by the ordainment of that Sage they arrived at Chitrakuta, and setting up a handsome cottage there, they who have enjoyed every comfort in Ayodhya enjoyed every comfort here also in no less a degree and that trio lived happily and exuberated themselves in woods at Chitrakuta, similar to Devas and Gandharvas.
vrm.1.1 And when all the Devas reverenced him for his great accomplishment in eliminating Ravana, Rama shone forth with his self resplendence.
vrm.1.1 Thus all the three worlds inclusive of their mobile and sessile beings, all Devas with the observances of hermits have become exultant for this great accomplishment of the great souled Raghava.
vrm.1.1 Rama" obtained boon from Devas to get all the dead Vanaras up on their feet as though woken up from sleep, and he travelled towards Ayodhya by Pushpaka Aircraft, with all the good hearted friends around him.
vrm.1.8 and thus appease the Devas in order to beget
vrm.1.14 Then all of those distinguished sages are contended with what they have performed by worshipping Devas already summoned, they also conducted early morning Savana ritual and its ancillaries as enjoined.
vrm.1.14 Rishyasringa and other best scholars with their well lettered and intonated Vedic hymns have invoked Indra and other Devas to that place.
vrm.1.14 The Hota s, invocators, have welcomed the Devas for partaking oblations by singing Sama Veda hymns sweetly and harmoniously, and on inviting them with Vedic hymns they have offered oblations to them.
vrm.1.14 Then the priest, one with controlled senses and rich in scriptural wealth, took up the omentum fat of the Horse and cooked it as per scriptures while dropping into the altar of fire to bake as a food to the Devas.
vrm.1.15 Then the Devas along with Gandharvas, Siddha s, and also other esteemed sages who by now are the residents of Heavens have duteously assembled in the firmament to receive their part of the oblations.
vrm.1.15 Ravana" said while seeking boon that, I shall not be killed by Gandharva s, Yaksha s, or by Devas, or by other Rakshasas.
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 In the meanwhile the great resplendent Vishnu, the Lord of the Universe, arrived there mounted on his Eagle vehicle Garuda, handling conch shell, disc, and mace in his three of four hands, clad in yellow ochre robes, wearing golden bracelets, and while best Devas eulogised him, and his arrival there is like the arrival of sun mounted on black cloud to accord the gratuitous gift called the rain.
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 "Oh! Vishnu, on your taking birth as human through the wives of Dasharatha you eliminate Ravana in war, who has become exacerbating and thorny to all worlds, and who is otherwise not eliminable for Devas.
vrm.1.15 b, a "He that preposterous Rakshasa Ravana with his invigorated doggedness is torturing Devas along with eminent saints, Gandharva s, and Siddha s.
vrm.1.15 The Devas appealed to Vishnu that way.
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.1.15 Thus Vishnu assured the Devas.
vrm.1.15 On giving boon to all Devas in that way the kind hearted god Vishnu started to think about the instituting base for his birth in human world.
vrm.1.15 b, a Then all the groups of Devas, Sages, Gandharva s, with Rudra s, and Apsarasa s, extolled Vishnu with prayers of divine exposition.
vrm.1.16 Later when the Omnipresent Narayana is thus nominated by best Devas, and though he knows the outcome, he gently spoke these words to Devas in this way.
vrm.1.16 "What is the idea to eliminate that Rakshasa s chief Ravana, oh, Devas, adopting which strategy I will have to eliminate that thorn in the side of Sages?" Thus Vishnu asked the Devas.
vrm.1.16 Asked thus all the Devas said to that sempiternal Vishnu, "on assuming a human form, eliminate Ravana in a war.
vrm.1.16 So said Devas to Vishnu.
vrm.1.16 b, On hearing that speech of Devas said that way, he that kind hearted Vishnu then chose Dasharatha as his father in human world.
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.1.16 There after, king Dasharatha greeted that divine being with palms adjoining and said in reply, "oh, god, welcome to you, and what shall I do for you?" Then again, that divine being sent by Prajapati said these words, "oh, king, now you have obtained this dessert in golden vessel as you have propitiated Devas.
vrm.1.16 On obtaining that dessert prepared by Devas then Dasharatha is highly gladdened like a pauper obtaining unforeseen wealth.
vrm.1.16 Then on seeing his queens with confirmed pregnancies Dasharatha regained his lost heart for sons, and he is gladdened like Vishnu, who will always be gladsome when worshipped by Devas, namely Indra and others, as well as by the assemblages of great souls, 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.1.17 a Thus the Devas have procreated many thousands of such valorous and guise changing Vanaras who with their immeasurable strength and bravery are manifest for the elimination of the Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana.
vrm.1.17 b, a Several of the Devas, great Sages, Gandharva s, Taarkshya s, Yaksha s, and the celebrated Uraga s, Kimpusha s, Siddha s, Vidyadhara s, Uraga s and Caarana s and even the prominent maidens of Apsara s, she Vidyadhara s, Naga, Gandharva s then gladly procreated all of the thousands of forest ranging and valiant Vanara sons from their bodies that are forest rangers.
vrm.1.17 b, a Thus the Devas and others have procreated millions of such noble souled Vanaras as the chiefs of warriors who can change their guise at their wish.
vrm.1.18 Kausalya shone forth with such a son whose resplendence is unlimited, as with lady Aditi who once stood out with her son Indra, the best one among Devas.
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.1.20 Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Patangas and Pannagas are incapable to bear the brunt of that Ravana in fight, what to tell about humans.
vrm.1.21 When that prudent sage Vishvamitra is thus enwrapped in fury, then the whole earth trembled and the Devas are scared.
vrm.1.21 Devas" cannot know Vishvamitra, and anybody from sages no immortals no Rakshasas no the Gandharva s and eminent Yaksha s together with the Kinnara s and great Uragas no, they cannot know him.
vrm.1.23 get up oh, tigerly man, eastern aurora is emerging, daytime tasks towards Devas are to be performed.
vrm.1.24 "Once these were vast provinces, oh, best one among men, designed by Devas and known as Malada and Karusha.
vrm.1.24 b, a "The Devas and ascetically rich sages then started to bathe feculent Indra with their handy vessels for the riddance of his defilement.
vrm.1.24 b, a "On giving filth and hunger emerged out of the body of Mahendra here on the earth then the Devas were gladdened.
vrm.1.24 b, a "On observing the honour accorded by wise Indra to these places Devas praised the controller of Paka, namely Indra saying, splendid, splendid it is.
vrm.1.26 b, a On seeing her who is horrendous in her shape is eliminated Indra and other Devas have highly esteemed Rama saying, “admirable, admirable is this act.
vrm.1.26 The thousand eyed and the destroyer of enemy’s citadels Indra then spoke with high satisfaction, and even all of the Devas are gladdened and said to Vishvamitra this way.
vrm.1.26 Rama" is steadfast in following your assignments and thus he is the worthy receiver of those missiles, and this prince has to accomplish a very great deed of Devas.
vrm.1.26 So said Devas to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.26 b, a All the Devas on saying thus and on extolling Vishvamitra they contentedly returned to heavens, and then the sunset has come to pass.
vrm.1.27 "I am going to accord all of those divine missiles by which scores of Devas, Asuras, or even from Gandharva s, Uraga s and the like, or even earthlings are dominated, humbled down and conquered in war.
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, godly sage, I have taken the missiles and became unassailable even for Devas, but oh, eminent sage, I wish to know the annulment of missiles too.
vrm.1.29 "Here, oh, dextrous Rama, he who is worshipped by Devas and who has got outstanding ascesis that Vishnu resided here in the pursuit of practising ascesis and yoga for good many years, likewise for a hundred eras.
vrm.1.29 b, a "In the meantime, when Vishnu was in his asceticism in this hermitage, the son of King Virochana, namely Bali, has completely conquered all the assemblages of Devas together with Indra and his coterie called Maruts, and ruling that kingdom where that hermitage is there, he has become renowned in all the three worlds for his magnanimity.
vrm.1.29 But when Bali is conducting that ritual remaining as its officiator all the Devas personally approached Vishnu, keeping Agni ahead of them, just here in this hermitage and they spoke to him.
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 "On listening the words of Devas, Brahma, the Forefather of all the worlds, soothingly spoke this to them with sweet words.
vrm.1.37 "All of the Devas have then come together under the leadership of Agni and they anointed that highly resplendent boy, Skanda, or Kaartikeya, as the Chief of Deva Army troops.
vrm.1.40 Entire earth is trekked and mighty beings like Devas, Danavas, Rakshasas, Pisachas, Uragas and Pannagas are also eliminated, but we have not seen the ritual Horse or its stealer.
vrm.1.41 "And he that resplendent Amshuman beheld one of the four directional Elephant of the earth which is being venerated by Devas, Danavas, Rakshasas, Pisachas, Patangas and Uragas.
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 b, a "Oh, Rama, all of the Devas along with the assemblages of sages, Daityas, Danavas, Rakshasas, and even great Uragas with Kinnara s, and Gandharva s with best Yaksha s, and even Sarpas and Apsara s, have delightfully moved after Ganga who is following the chariot of Bhagiratha, and why they, in fact, all of the aquatic beings have followed Ganga.
vrm.1.45 "A lethal poison similar to inferno known as Haalahala has started to fulminate therefrom, by which many of Devas and Asuras is burnt down.
vrm.1.45 "The Devas seeking shelter then approached Rudra, the Cardinal God, Endower of Solace, and who husbands all the created animals inclusive of human animals, namely Shiva, and they prayed to him saying save, save us.
vrm.1.45 "Anybody either from Devas or Asuras espoused them, and when none espoused them they are virtually reckoned as general purpose Apsara females.
vrm.1.49 Therefore, oh, all Gods with the assemblages of sages and Caarana s, it will be apt of you to make me virile again, as I have acted for the benefit of Devas.
vrm.1.49 "On hearing the words of the officiator for Hundred Vedic rituals, namely Indra, all of the Devas together with the Maruts came to the Pitris keeping the Fire god in van, and appealed.
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.1.60 "When all the Devas are addressed thus they replied the eminent saint Vishvamitra saying, so be it! Safe you be! Let all the created objects prevail in their respective places.
vrm.1.63 All this is the mischief of Devas to defraud me of the great merit of my ascesis.
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.2.1 That Rama was He not the eternal Vishnu who was born on earth as prayed by Devas to kill the egoistic Ravana? Like Aditi by Indra, best among the Devas, Kausalya shone by her son Rama, the mighty.
vrm.2.1 Surrounded by the respected and humble kings sitting closely to him as well as the important heads of cities and villages, king Dasaratha shone like lord Devendra surrounded by Devas.
vrm.2.2 "He is skilled in the use of various weapons known to Devas, Asuras and men.
vrm.2.2 "Both young and aged women are praying with a stable mind each morning and evening to all Devas, for the benefit of renowned Rama.
vrm.2.3 Afterwards the kings belonging to east, west, north, south as well as those belonging to Mleccha kingdom, Aryaa Vartha kingdom and those ruling in hill and forest areas sat there and attended on King Dasaratha as Devas attended on Devendra.
vrm.2.3 The sage king Dasaratha, sitting in the midst of those kings like Devendra in the middle of the Devas, saw from the palace itself, his son Rama arriving in a chariot.
vrm.2.3 King Dasaratha, the best among those who have sons, smilingly conversed with his son, and addressed Rama as follows, as Kasyapa does to his eldest son Devendra the ruler of Devas.
vrm.2.3 "Like the Devas becoming happy after obtaining the Amrita, friends of a king ruler of earth are delighted when he fills the granaries and armories to the brim, making the common people delightful and happy.
vrm.2.4 Thus I am relieved of all debts to the Devas by performing holy sacrifices, to the sages by studying Vedas etc.
vrm.2.8 Their brotherly love is as famous as that of Aswini Devas.
vrm.2.9 "O Queen! Once upon a time, when there was a battle between Devas and Asuras, your husband Dasaratha went along with you and other holy kings to help Indra in battle, to a famous city called Vaijayata in which Timidhvaja lived in a southern direction in the forest of Dandaka.
vrm.2.9 "That great Asura famously called shambara, who had several magic effects, defeated all the Devas and conferred battle upon Devendra.
vrm.2.9 Oh, Kaikeyi, the great fortunate! you remind Dasaratha of those boons given by him to you in that battle between Devas and Asuras.

vrm.2.17 Rama approached the royal abode and entered his father s palace which was the best palace with blazing radiance like the palace of king of Devas on earth.
vrm.2.18 "Oh, Rama! During a battle and a great war between Devas and Asuras long ago, I protected your father who was pierced by darts.
vrm.2.25 Let all mountains oceans, king Varuna, heaven and earth, the intermediate space between them rivers astrological mansions including Devas presiding over them, day and night, the morning and evening twilights may protect you while you reside in the forest

vrm.2.50 The blessed river was graced by Devas and Danavas, Gandharvas and Kinnaras and was constantly visited by consorts of Nagas and Gandharvas.

vrm.2.56 All of them Seetha, Rama and Lakshmana together for residential purpose, entered that hut, thatched with leaves of trees, looking beautiful, well constructed at a suitable site and protected from winds, as if entering an assembly hall called Sudharma in heavn by a group of Devas.
vrm.2.70 Being protected by the army, the high soled Bharata, who was free from enemies, taking Shatrughna along with other companions good enough to him, started from the palace of his venerable maternal uncle, as a Siddha would start from Indraloka the world of Devas.

Long ago, when our father married your mother, he promised your maternal grandfather that he would confer his kingdom as an exceptional marriage dowry" "Thereafter, in a conflict between Devas and Asuras, your mother received the promise of two boons from the efficient lord of the earth, King Dasaratha, as a token of his joy and gratitude.
vrm.3.5 b, He saw the stainless Parasol of Indra, marvellously garlanded and shining forth, and the exemplary and invaluable royal fanning instruments with golden handles, which two best female Devas are handling and fanning at Indra s head sides with them.
vrm.3.5 Then, on seeing Rama arriving there, Indra, bade farewell to Sage Sharabhanga and said this to the Devas attending him.
vrm.3.11 There the Devas, Yakshas, Nagas and Patagas live together wishing to worship the Absolute with self discipline.
vrm.3.11 There Devas will endow the state of Yakshas or Immortals, or many realms of divine living to those auspicious beings that worship them.
vrm.3.12 "By this bow, oh, Rama, once Vishnu eliminated horrible Asuras in war and brought back radiant prosperity to the Devas.
vrm.3.19 "Who is that kind of highly intrepid warper, either from Devas, or from Gandharvas, Bhutas or from high souled sages who indeed rendered you shapeless.
vrm.3.19 "Now, when I haul him easily on the ground in a battle that villain will be unredeemable either by Devas, Gandharvas, Pisachas, or by Rakshasas.
vrm.3.19 "Having all the aspects of kings they equal the kings of Gandharvas, and I am ill disposed to differentiate whether they two are Devas or Danavas.
vrm.3.23 So said Devas to one another.
vrm.3.25 b, a On seeing lone Rama beset by many Rakshasas, then the Devas, Gandharvas, Siddhas and Sages are dispirited.
vrm.3.30 In this meantime Devas gathering along with Carana s drummed Deva Dundhubis from all over and showered flowers on Rama from all over.
vrm.3.32 One who is severally bruised in several combats of Devas and Asuras with the thunderbolts from the Vajra weapon of Indra, and one who is severally blotched on his chest when the prongs of the tusks of Airavata, the lordly Elephant of Indra, gored his chest, at such a Ravana Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.32 At him who is a volleyer of mountain peaks, a represser of Devas, an extirpator of ethical values, and a molester of others wives, Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.40 "In this way my thinking is decided and it is lingering on in my heart, and it is impossible to roll back my mind or heart even for Indra coming along with Devas and Danavas.
vrm.3.45 a, b "Oh, Vaidehi, your husband is an impossible one for vincibility by Pannagas, Asuras, Gandharvas, Devas, Danavas and Rakshasas, no doubt about it.
vrm.3.55 "It is impossible to assail this Lanka even for Indra with all of the Devas and Danavas, as an ocean roundly enshrouds this Lanka which is hundred Yojana s witdthwise.
vrm.3.65 b, a Let us intently search the worlds of Devas and Gandharvas as long as the abductor of your wife is unapprehended.
vrm.4.6 Your wife is as good as an indigestible foodstuff made with poison, indigestive even to Indra, put together with all Devas and Danavas.
vrm.4.13 "This hermitage that has encircling trees for its compound wall has become highly unassailable even for Indra together with all Devas and Danavas.
vrm.4.38 And the Rikshas, Vanaras and brave Golangulas who are the children of Devas and Gandharva s, and who change their guise just by their wish are halfway through on their path duly fenced round with one s own forces.
vrm.4.40 On crossing over Yava Island, there is a mountain named Shishira, which touches heaven with its peak, and which Devas and Danavas adore.
vrm.4.58 and I have even seen those empyrean worlds that were triply trodden by Vishnu, and the intermediary regions of upper and lower worlds where Devas and Asuras combated ghastlily, and because I am that aged I have also seen the unseeable
vrm.5.1 Then, on seeing Hanuma flying quickly in the sky, Devas, Gandharvas and Danavas showered flowers on him.
vrm.5.1 Devas and Gandharvas also sang in His praise.
vrm.5.1 Immediately on seeing the best among Vanaras, Hanuma, flying without any effort, Nagas, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Devas and Suparnas all praised Him.
vrm.5.1 "O mountain with golden hued middle area and one who is served by Devas and Gandharvas! Hanuma can take rest on you and then traverse rest of the distance.
vrm.5.1 "O best among vanaras! You are the son of the great Vayu the God of wind, who is best in speed among the Devas.
vrm.5.1 "After that when those mountains were thus flying freely, Devas and living creatures together with sages obtained fear in the doubt that those mountains might fall down.
vrm.5.1 Seeing Hanuma perform that very difficult second task first one being the flight over ocean, all Devas, Siddhas and great sages praised Him.
vrm.5.1 Devas and the thousand eyed Devendra who were there, became happy by the task of that golden hued Mainaka.
vrm.5.1 Thereafter, the best among mountains obtained great happiness on seeing Devendra, the lord of Devas being happy.
vrm.5.1 Thereafter, Devas together with Gandharvas, Siddhas and great sages spoke thus to Surasa, the mother of Nagas, equal to the Sun in brilliance.
vrm.5.1 That Goddess Surasa, thus spoken to by Devas and also being respected by them, wearing a horrible disfigured appearance of a Rakshasa in the middle of the ocean which caused fear to all, and stopping Hanuma who was flying, spoke these words.
vrm.5.1 "O best among Vanaras! You have been given by Devas as my food.
vrm.5.2 It is not possible even for Devas to be victorious against Lanka in war".
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw such that city of Lanka, which was difficult to overcome even for Devas or Asuras, and thought thus repeatedly.
vrm.5.7 Hanuma saw houses glittered by various riches, well worshipped by Devas and Asuras, devoid of all flaws and obtained by the self might of rakshasas.
vrm.5.8 In that plane there is not even a small thing that is not made with great effort, in that there is nothing without the best diamonds, those characteristics definitely are not in Devas also, in that there is nothing that is not of great significance.
vrm.5.9 Hanuma thought thus This is heaven! This is indeed the abode of Devas! This is a city of Indra.
vrm.5.10 Shoulders well smeared by best sandal with good smell and very cool resembling in color to a hare s blood, well decorated, massaged by the best women, served by the best sandal and which made Yakshas, Nagas, Gandharvas, Devas and Danavaas scream.
vrm.5.11 The strong Hanuma observing girls from Devas, Gandharvas and girls from Nagas did not see Janaki.
vrm.5.13 Devas“ together with ascetics will make success to me here, self born Brahma the divine one and devas and Agni and Vaayu, Devendra wearing the weapon of Vajra and Varuna with Pasha in hand and also the Sun and the moon and the aswinis.
vrm.5.23 "By whom thirty three Devas and the king of Devas have been conquered, you are suited to become the wife of that lord of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.23 Another Rakshasa woman named Vikata spoke these words: "By whom a number of times in war Devas, in war Nagas, Gandharvas and Danavas have been conquered that Ravana has come to your side.
vrm.5.24 "Obtain as husband Ravana who is the lord of all Rakshasas, bold and handsome, like Indra the lord of Devas, able one and liberal with a pleasing appearance to all.
vrm.5.26 "Whoever is seeing my husband Rama with eyes resembling a lotus flower such Devas, Siddhas together with Gandharvas and great sages are fortunate.
vrm.5.36 Otherwise, Rama and Lakshmana are capable of holding down even the Devas.
vrm.5.36 If the goddess of Death along with Asuras and Devas stand firmly in the way of Rama at that time, he will kill them also.
vrm.5.37 Neither the Devas nor the Gandharvas nor the Bhujangas nor the Rakshasas are equal to Rama in combat.
vrm.5.38 "Roaming the three worlds in search of a saviour, that crow was abandoned by Indra its father, the Devas and the sages.
vrm.5.46 Devas, Asuras, Sages along with the Nagas, the Yakshas, the Gandharvas were conquered by my along with you all together.
vrm.5.47 Then, Aksha having a prowess equal to that of Devas, came forth, mounting that chariot decorated with golden wreaths, having a brilliance of moon and sun, filled with every right thing and shining like rays of sun.
vrm.5.47 Aksha, thus having been killed, Hanuma was gazed on with excessive astonishment by great sages who move everywhere without obstruction and having great voes as also by Bhutas, Yakshas, Pannagas and by Devas with Indra.
vrm.5.48 Indra and other Devas perceived your performance with your missiles acquired by propitiating Pitamaha Brahma.
vrm.5.48 Devas" together with troops of Maruts joining Indra were not able to endure the strength of your missiles in battle.
vrm.5.49 He was being reassured by counselors knowing the secret of good counsel and other Rakshasas with auspicious minds, as Indra is reassured by Devas.
vrm.5.49 Seeing the glittering Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, Hanuma was bewildered by his splendor and thought in his mind as follows: “What figure, what courage, what strength, what splendor and what amalgam of auspicious marks, alas, this king of Rakshasas has!” “Had this lord of Rakshasas perhaps not strong in unrighteousness, he would have been a protector of even the world of Devas together with Indra.
vrm.5.49 “By his cruel and violent acts despised by the world, all people including Devas and Danavas indeed remain frightened of him.
vrm.5.50 "I am incapable of being bound by missiles and nooses even by Devas and Asuras.
vrm.5.51 "Who is capable even among Devas and Asuras, to withstand the arrows discharged by Lakshmana, in the wake of the fury of Rama? "O king! No one is known in the three worlds, who have gained happiness, by doing harm to Rama.
vrm.5.51 "She is incapable of being devoured with one s might even by Devas and Asuras, any more than food mixed with abundant poison could be digested with one s digestive power, if consumed.
vrm.5.51 "You may be thinking that you are immune from death from Devas and Asuras, because of your austerities.
vrm.5.51 "The renowned Rama, who is equal in prowess to Vishnu is the foremost among Devas or Asuras or men, or among hordes of Yakshas or among all Vidyadharas, or among Gandharvas or among Uragas or among Siddhas or among excellent Kinnaras or among Patatris Suparnas or among all living beings at all places and at all times.
vrm.5.51 "O king of Rakshasas! Devas, Daityas, Gandharvas, Vidyadharas, Nagas, Yakshas, all of them are not able to stand before Rama the lord of the three worlds.
vrm.5.52 On the other hand, you ought to strengthen such effort on Devas including indra.
vrm.5.54 Then, all the multitude of Devas enlogised that Hanuma, the principal warrior of the Vanaras, possessing great strength and swiftness similar to the wind, greatly intelligent and the most excellent.
vrm.5.54 Seeing that city of Lanka burnt there, Devas, Siddhas and great sages along with Gandharvas, got a colossal surprise.
vrm.5.54 There, all the Devas, Sages, Gandharvas, Vidyadharas, Nagas, Yakshas, the Bhutas and all great living beings attained a great joy.
vrm.5.57 The auspicious Angada encircled by many Vanaras there, waited like Indra who was waited upon by Devas in heaven.
vrm.5.58 "O excellent of Vanaras! The Devas have shown you as my eatable.
vrm.5.58 "O lord! Enjoy yourself with the daughters of Devas, Gandharvas and Yakshas.
vrm.5.59 The shower of rocks, which will be unequalled and incessant, discharged by me, can kill even Devas.
vrm.5.59 How much more, the Rakshasas in battle?” “Tell me any one who can fight against Mainda or Dvivida, among Gandharvas or Uragas or Pakshis the birds or the Devas, Asuras or Yakshas.
vrm.5.60 "O the best of Vanaras! No one is equal to us even in our prowess nor indeed anyone who can leap like us in the worlds either of Devas or Daityas.
vrm.5.62 It is so charming, but is dangerous to be approached even by Devas.
vrm.5.67 "Forsaken by all the Devas, Indra, its father and the sages too, that crow did not find a protector even after going round all the three worlds heaven, earth and the lower regions.
vrm.5.67 "Why even that Lakshmana, the annihilator of adversaries and the foremost of men born in Raghu dynasty is not saving me, by taking orders from Rama his brother?" "Wherefore those two competent brothers Rama and Lakshmana, with their splendour equal to that of air and fire, and excellent among men, even though they can conquer the Devas, are ignoring me?" "There is no doubt that I had done some big impure act, for which reason those two brothers Rama and Lakshmana, who torment the enemies, even though capable, are not paying attention to me.
vrm.6.1 “Who can return alive, having entered once taking refuge only in self command, the city of Lanka, which is unconquerable by Devas, Asuras and Yakshas and even by Gandharvas, Nagas and Rakshasas and well under the custody of Ravana?”
vrm.6.2 “Without building a bridge across the sea, the dreadful abode of Varuna Lanka cannot be defeated even by Devas and Danavas including Indra.
vrm.6.3 “That city of Lanka, resembling the city of Devas, is built on a mountain peak and is inaccessible.
vrm.6.4 “The armies of Vanaras formed into different squadrons are looking highly splendid like the armies of Devas in the battle in which Taraka was killed, Oh venerable one! Be pleased to see these good omens in this manner.
vrm.6.6 Having seen the fearful and the terrible act in Lanka done by Hanuma, like Devendra the powerful King of Devas, Ravana with his face descended a little with shame, spoke to the Rakshasas as follows: “By him, who was only a Vanara, the irresistible City of Lanka was entered into and was over powered.
vrm.6.7 “Oh, king! Having been released by the orders of your grand father Brahma, Devendra who killed Shambara and Vritra and who was adored by all Devas, went back to heaven.
vrm.6.10 How Rama even along with Indra and the Devas can stand before me in battle?” Ravana, who annihilated the army of Devas and who was very powerful with an impetuous valour, thus spoke and then sent away Vibhishana, who had spoken honestly.
vrm.6.12 Earlier, together with you, I conquered the Devas in a battle between the Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.14 We do not have fear of either Devas or Danavas at any time.
vrm.6.14 “Even the Devas would feel bewildered when placed in front of the king Rama who gives priority to righteousness, is a great car warrior, was born in the dynasty of Ikshvaku and is capable of accomplishing his objects.
vrm.6.15 All the flocks of Devas were cast into fear and all of them fled to different quarters.
vrm.6.15 I forcibly extracted its teeth and frightened the entire flock of Devas.
vrm.6.15 “How can I, with great valor, who suppressed the arrogance of even the Devas and who made the lives of even excellent of the Daityas miserable, not capable of conquering the two princes who are ordinary human beings?” Hearing those words of Indrajit, who was equal to Indra, dangerous to be approached, and possessing great vital power, Vibhishana the excellent one among bearers of weapons spoke then the following highly meaningful words:
vrm.6.19 Those guardians of the earth along with the Devas were defeated by the wicked Ravana.
vrm.6.19 “O, Rama the tiger among men! Why not Vibhishana’s words, which are soothing at this time of crisis be agreeable also to us?” “Without constructing a bridge across this fiery ocean, which is an abode of Lord Varuna, even the Devas and Asuras along with Indra cannot reach the city of Lanka.
vrm.6.20 It cannot be acquired even by Devas and Gandharvas, why to talk about men and Vanaras?”
vrm.6.20 “You are unaware how strong, high soled and irresistible even to Devas, is this Rama the excellent man of Raghu dynasty, who shall deprive you of your life.
vrm.6.22 The Devas and Gandharvas, saw Nala’s bridge, having a width of Ten Yojanas and a length of Hundred Yojanas and which was very difficult to be built.
vrm.6.22 Seeing that Ramas’ accomplishment, which was amazing and arduous Devas, Siddhas and Charanas along with great sages, forthwith approached Rama and consecrated him with very splendid waters separately.
vrm.6.24 Hearing the words of Shuka, Ravana with his eyes becoming blood red in anger, as if he would consume him with his glance, said as follows: Even if I were frightened by all the worlds or even if I were to face a battle with Devas, Gandharvas or Danavas, I would not give back Seetha.
vrm.6.25 "That army protected by Rama and Lakshmana as well as Sugreeva, are exceedingly unconquerable even by all the Devas and Danavas.
vrm.6.26 "I do not give Seetha even if the Devas, Gandharvas or Danavas attack me or even if there is a terror from all the worlds.
vrm.6.27 By the intelligent Jambavan, a great help was rendered to Indra in a battle between Devas and Asuras and many boons were obtained.
vrm.6.27 “This Samnada, whose striding prowess is equal to that of Indra was born of a youthful Gandharva maiden and krishnavartman for the purpose of helping the Devas in a combat between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.28 “O, king! Do you observe those Vanaras resembling huge Elephants in rut, rising like banyan trees on the banks of River Ganga or Sala trees on Himalayas? Those warriors, able to change their form at will, are irresistible, equal to Daityas and Danavas, and in a battle, are endowed with the valour of the Devas.
vrm.6.28 “These Vanaras, the attendants of Sugreeva born of Devas and Gandharvas, are able to change their form at will and always stay in Kishkindha.
vrm.6.28 “The two who stand there, who have the same resemblance and have the appearance of Devas, are Mainda and Dvivida.
vrm.6.28 “Without even reaching the sun, which is most unassailable even to Devas, sages or Rakshasas, he however fell on a mountain, where that radiant orb rises.
vrm.6.28 “The other whom you see as an unshakable mountain and standing in the centre of Vanaras as a Lord of all chiefs of Vanaras, with a boundless energy and who, like a Himalayan hill, very much radiating the other Vanaras by his splendour, glory, wisdom, strength and his noble descent, who occupies along with the chiefs of Army Generals, a secret place called Kishkindha, with its forests and trees and the place inaccessible because of its impassable mountains, in which is established a good fortune of Devas and human beings, whose charming and golden coloured garland with hundred lotuses is beautifying, that person is Sugreeva.
vrm.6.30 “I will not give away Seetha even if the Devas or Gandharvas or the Danavas were to fight against me or even under danger from all beings.
vrm.6.33 “It is not possible to kill in this manner even Vanaras, who perform fighting with trees, in as much as they are fully protected by Rama, even as Devas are protected by Indra their lord” “O, Seetha! Rama, who is endowed with long and well rounded arms, an illustrious man, who is large chested, a man of great energy, an archer well known in the world, a man endowed with muscularity, a righteous minded man, a person of celebrity on earth, a man of eternal strength, a protector for himself and for others, while together with his brother Lakshmana, a man of high descent, a knower of doctrines of conduct and behavior, the killer of a stream of enemy forces, a man of inconceivable strength and valor, a venerable man and an annihilator of adversaries, has not been killed.
vrm.6.35 "All the Devas, sages and Gandharvas are wishing for victory of Rama.
vrm.6.35 Grandfather" Brahma, the lord, created only two classes of beings, the Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.35 Devas take refuge in righteousness and Asuras in unrighteousness.
vrm.6.35 "O, Ravana! Righteous is said to be on the side of the high souled Devas.
vrm.6.35 "You received a boon of invincibility from Devas, Rakshasas and Gandharvas, but then are men, Rikshas as well as powerful and very efficacious having strong prowess who are coming hither, roaring like Lions.
vrm.6.36 "How can you hold Rama, who is a mere human being, a small feeble man, taking help from Vanaras and dwelling in a forest having been abandoned by his father, to be a competent person?" "How can you hold me, the Lord of Rakshasas, terrifying Devas and possessing all powers in full, to be a weaker person?"
vrm.6.36 "How should this Ravana, whom in combat, the Devas themselves dare not meet in a duel, entertain fear in this encounter?" "Rather would I be cut into two pieces than bend before anybody! Such was I from birth, it is my nature by difacult and unalterable.
vrm.6.37 "Observe this city of Lanka, ruled by Ravana, impregnable both to Devas and Asuras together, or the Uragas and Gandharvas.
vrm.6.37 You are indeed capable of overpowering even Devas by your valour.
vrm.6.41 The Vanaras, encouraged by the sound of Ramas’ voice and obedient to his command, halted before the city of Lanka, garlanded with banners, beautiful and splendid with pleasure gardens, having an unusual rampart which is inaccessible with its elevated arched door ways and invincible even by the Devas.
vrm.6.41 Calling to his mind the duty of the kings, Rama who was eager to undertake what was to be done next, in concurrence with Vibhishana, summoned Angada the son of Vali and spoke as follows: “Go my gentle Angada on my behalf and, passing thought the city of Lanka without fear and anxiety and Lanka without fear and anxiety and approaching Ravana the unfortunate Rakshasa devoid of sovereignty and who has lost his splendour because of his inclination to die admonish him in the following words:” “O, Ravana the Ranger of the Night! In your reckless arrogance, sages, Devas, Gandharvas, Apsaras, Nagas, Yakshas and kings have been oppressed by you.
vrm.6.41 ‘Now, I shall uproot you, a thorn to sages and an enemy to Devas, Danavas, Yakshas, Gandharvas, Uragas and Rakshasas.
vrm.6.42 In the meantime, a terrible struggle ensued between the Rakshasas and the Vanaras, as in the former times between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.43 Those strong Rakshasas were destroyed thus by those valiant Vanaras there in a series of hand to hand encounters, as the Daityas were destroyed by the blows of the Devas.
vrm.6.43 The headless trunks of Vanaras and Rakshasas sprang up here and there in the midst of that tumultuous conflict, which resembled the war between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.44 All the Devas, both Rama and Lakshmana together with all sages were pleased with that act of the venerable Angada the son of Vali.
vrm.6.46 “Even were they aided by the Devas and Danavas with the host of sages, these two brothers would never be able to release themselves from those arrows that paralyse them.
vrm.6.50 "Hearing the words of Sugreeva, Sushena replied as followers: A highly terrific and great was between Devas and Asuras was perceived by me.
vrm.6.50 "By making themselves invisible again and again, the Rakshasas skilled in the use of arrows overcame the Devas despite their skill in bearing arms.
vrm.6.50 "To those Devas who were wounded, unconscious and almost deprived of life, Brihaspati treated them by the aid of herbs accompanied by his spells of sacred formulas.
vrm.6.50 "The Devas placed those two mountain in the vast sea.
vrm.6.50 "Even the most valiant Asuras or the exceedingly strong Vanaras or the Devas together with the Gandharvas having Devendra in their forefront are unable to untie this awfully terrific entanglement of arrows created through his power of sorcery by Indrajit of terrific deeds.
vrm.6.54 The mighty Angada experienced a great joy amidst the Vanara forces, honoured by them for his high courage and he resembled the Lord of a Thousand Eyes surrounded by the Devas.
vrm.6.55 Even Devas were indeed unable to upset Akampana in a great battle.
vrm.6.59 Speaking thus, Ravana the enemy of the Lord of Devas ascended his chariot which shone like a flame and was yoked to a team of excellent Horses with its brilliance of an effulgent body.
vrm.6.59 Approaching his chariot, the sagacious Hanuma lifted his right arm and spoke the following threatening words to Ravana: You have obtained the boon of invulnerability to the Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, Rakshasas and Yakshas.
vrm.6.59 Beholding Ravana struck in the fight by Hanuma s palm the sages, Vanaras, Siddhas, along with Asuras and Devas raised a resounding approbation.
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 Seeing Ravana despite his redoubtable strength swooned on the battle field, sages and Vanaras began to shout in triumph as did also Devas and the Asuras.
vrm.6.59 Devas and Danavas returned to Lanka, Rama arranged for drawing out arrows from Vanaras and from Lakshmana too, in the forefront of that vast battle field.
vrm.6.59 That Ravana, the adversary of Indra being vanquished, the Devas, Asuras the multitude Bhutas in all the quarters, the creatures of the ocean with the great Uragas as also all beings on earth and in waters rejoiced very much.
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 "I sought immunity from death at the hands of Devas, Danavas and Gandharvas, Yakshas, Rakshasas and Pannagas, but of man I made no mention.
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 "O, Prince! There is no threat whatsoever at anytime for us from Devas but a mere man is driving us back by a tumultuous tremor.
vrm.6.60 Get thee hence were the words addressed by Rama who is equal to the sun in splendour, to Ravana in person the Lord of Rakshasas and the trouble some person to Devas.
vrm.6.60 "That which this king never suffered at the hands of Devas, Daityas or Danavas, he has had to endure here from Rama, who released him from the danger to his life.
vrm.6.61 "O Rama! He conquered thousands of Devas, Danavas, Yakshas, Bhujangas, Pishitashanas raw flesh eaters, Gandharvas, Vidyadharas and Pannagas in battle.
vrm.6.61 "Seeing the mighty Kumbhakarna with ghastly eyes and a spear in hand, the Devas were not able to kill him, having confused to think that he was Yama.
vrm.6.61 The Devas, Brahmarshis and Danavas were suddenly aggrieved.
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.6.62 O the foremost of Rakshasas! For several times, in battles between Devas and Asuras, you conquered the Devas and Asuras, after attacking them in the battle.
vrm.6.63 When I am enraged, even Devas will lay down on the floor.
vrm.6.65 Taking hold of that large spike tinted with the blood of enemies, shining like Indra s thunderbolt and equally heavy, capable of tormenting Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, Yakshas and Nagas, wreathed in garlands of crimson flowers with excessive splendour and emitting flames by itself naturally, Kumbhakarna of great brilliance spoke to Ravana the following words: "Let this large army stay back here.
vrm.6.65 That Kumbhakarna, the enemy of Devas and Danavas, wielding a sharp spike in his hand, while sallying forth, over whose head a Parasol was held and drink and intoxicated by the smell of blood.
vrm.6.67 Then, being praised in the battle field by the Rakshasas for having seized hold of Sugreeva and hearing the sounds of the Devas who were wondering at the seizure of Sugreeva, Kumbhakarna the valiant chief of Rakshasas, sallied forth.
vrm.6.67 "Even otherwise, this Sugreeva can win the freedom himself despite he is taken away by Devas including Asuras and Uragas.
vrm.6.67 What to tell about a person who bestows battle on me?" "Even the powerful Indra, who mounted Airavata the Elephant and accompanied by all Devas, did not ever stand before me in battle.
vrm.6.67 By it, the Devas and Danavas were conquered by me before.
vrm.6.67 Then, flourishing that hammer which was smeared with blood and which can frighten the great army of Devas, in terrific speed, that Rakshasa scared away the army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 While that mighty Kumbhakarna, the enemy of Brahmanas and Devas was killed in battle, the earth and mountains shook.
vrm.6.67 Even the Devas raised a tumultuous roar with joy.
vrm.6.67 Then, Devarshis, great Sages Pannagas, Devas, Bhutas, Suparnas Guhyakas, including troops of Yakshas and Gandharvas standing in the sky, were rejoiced at Rama s prowess.
vrm.6.67 By killing Kumbhakarna, who tormented the army of Devas and who was not defeated at any time in great battles, Rama was rejoiced in the same way as Indra was rejoiced in killing Vritra, the great Asura.
vrm.6.68 "Indeed I shall no longer live now, that this right hand of mine, taking refuge on when I had no fear of Devas and Danavas, has fallen down.
vrm.6.68 "How such a hero, who destroyed the pride of Devas and Danavas, as also who was an image of fire that was to destroy the world, was killed by Rama today in battle?" "Having been afflicted by Rama s arrows, how are you, whom not even a clash of a thunder bolt ever caused any fall, falling now insensibly on the earth’s surface?" "Seeing you killed in battle, these troops of Devas and sages, standing in the sky, are shouting with rejoice.
vrm.6.68 "Seeing me, who did harm to them in the past, the Devas will indeed mock me.
vrm.6.69 “The Devas and Danavas were indeed destroyed several times by you with your various types of weapons.
vrm.6.69 All were such as had never been heard of having been conquered by Devas or Gandharvas or Kinnaras or great Uragas while encountering a battle.
vrm.6.69 That Ravana the king, surrounded by his sons, who were radiant as the sun and who tormented the strength and fortune of the enemies, shone like Indra surrounded by Devas who can destroy the pride of gigantic Danavas.
vrm.6.69 In that chariot, Atikaya that mighty prince, surrounded by the foremost of Rakshasas, shone like Indra surrounded by Devas.
vrm.6.69 Seeing the Vanaras rejoicing in that tumultuous battle which commenced and the Rakshasas falling down, the great sages and troop of Devas emitted shouts of triumph.
vrm.6.69 When that Narantaka of great prowess was killed by Angada in battle, the chiefs of Devas and the Vanaras too then emitted a great roar of triumph in the sky.
vrm.6.70 That Angada, being attacked by the three chief Rakshasas, who were capable of smashing the pride of Devas, uplifted a tree with its large boughs.
vrm.6.70 When that Devantaka the mighty chief of Rakshasa warriors and the enemy of Devas was killed in battle, the enraged Trishira showered a terrible rain of sharp pointed arrows on Neela’s chest.
vrm.6.70 When that Trishira, the enemy of Devas, having a prowess equal to that of Indra was killed, the Vanaras made a loud noise.
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.6.71 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 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 “He conquered the Devas and the Danavas several times, destroyed Yakshas and defended the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.71 This wise Ravanas’ son, who is strong and the foremost of Rakshasas took off the pride of Devas and Danavas.
vrm.6.71 Then, Vidyadharas, Bhutas, Devas, Daityas, great Sages and Guhyakas, all the great souled ones saw that battle.
vrm.6.73 Those Vanaras, tormented by the arrows in battle, with their limbs severed, fell down with their aspirations shaken, like the great Asuras fallen down by the Devas.
vrm.6.74 From that mountain, Hanuma then ascended Mount Malaya, appearing as Mounts Meru and Mandara, filled with several kinds of cascades, full of many trees and creepers, having Kamala and Utpala lotuses blooming, visited by Devas and Gandharvas, having a height of Sixty Yojanas four hundred eighty miles, frequented by Vidyadharas, a number of sages and Apsaras, filled with various kinds of animal troupes and illuminated by many caves, Hanuma grew his body, appearing like a cloud, bewildering Yakshas, Gandharvas and Kinnaras.
vrm.6.76 “The Devas cannot surpass even you alone, with a spike in hand, who can destroy the enemy with your large arms, as mental agonies cannot overwhelm the one who subdued his senses.
vrm.6.76 “Because of the boon received by him, Ravana your uncle is able to attack the Devas and Danavas.
vrm.6.79 Thereafter, a very great battle ensued between Vanaras and Rakshasas, which caused one s hair to bristle, like the encounter between Devas and Danavas.
vrm.6.79 With an intent to see that wonderful battle, all the Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, Kinnaras and great Uragas reached the sky.
vrm.6.79 Thrilled with delight, the Devas watched that Rakshasa, the son of Khara, destroyed by the flights of Rama s arrows and resembling a mountain shattered, after struck by lightning.
vrm.6.84 On returning after pouring oblations into the sacred fire, Indrajit will prove difficult to be overcome in battle, even by Devas including Indra.
vrm.6.84 Therefore, grant permission to Lakshmana to destroy the enemy, as Indra would hurl his thunderbolt to destroy the enemies of Devas.
vrm.6.84 If he come with a desire to fight, after ending that sacrifice, the Devas also will feel a great suspicion on their own lives.
vrm.6.85 He is so mighty that he can render unconscious in battle even the Devas along with Varuna.
vrm.6.87 "These faults which destroy one s life and lordship killing great sages terribly, waging war against all Devas, arrogance, becoming angry very easily, quarrelsomeness, ill will have concealed the good qualities of my elder brother, as the clouds conceal the view of mountains.
vrm.6.89 That tumultuous and terrific battle accompanied by a great noise, occured between the Vanaras and the Rakshasas as between enraged Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.90 Placing Indra as their head, the Sages, Pitris, Devas, Gandharvas, Garudas and Uragas protected Lakshmana in the battle field.
vrm.6.90 With the help of that arrow, the highly powerful and valiant Indra, who had Green Horses to his chariot, was able to conquer the Danavas in a combat which raged between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.90 As Indrajit was killed, all those Vanaras together with Vibhishana roared in rejoice, as the Devas did, when Vritra was killed.
vrm.6.90 In the sky too was heard the sound of large drums played by Devas, the melody produced by dancing Apsaras and the songs of Gandharvas.
vrm.6.90 The Devas and Danavas were rejoiced and arrived on the scene.
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.6.90 Hearing Indrajit having been killed and witnessing that arduous act of Lakshmana, their beloved friend in battle, the Devas were gratified and experienced a great rejoice in their minds.
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.6.93 Then, the Devas along with Gandharvas, Siddhas and great sages acclaimed that feat of Rama, saying "well done, well done!".
vrm.6.93 Rama, a compeer of Indra the great souled, unwearied in the use of weapons and missiles, having destroyed that army of Rakshasas, was applauded by the rejoiced troops of Devas.
vrm.6.94 "Neither the Devas nor Gandharvas nor the Pisachas nor the Rakshasas are able to protect Ravana, who is about to attack Rama in battle.
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.6.94 "All the Devas together with Indra and others, got propitiated by Shiva the lord of destruction, with the ensign of a bull on his flag staff and who destroyed the three strong cities built of gold, silver and iron in the sky, air and earth for Rakshasas.
vrm.6.94 "The gracious Shiva spoke the following words to the Devas: For your benefit, a woman will be born, for causing destruction of the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.94 "This Seetha, the destroyer of Rakshasas, employed by the Devas, will consume us along with Ravana, as in the past hunger consumed the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.98 Hearing the loud noise of Vanaras, as also of the Devas in the battle field, the enraged Ravana the adversary of Indra, then stood prepared for a battle again.
vrm.6.100 "Let the three worlds including Gandharvas, the Devas, the sages and the Charanas see today the Ramahood of Rama during the course of my battle.
vrm.6.100 "I shall perform today a feat, which people in the world including all living beings both mobile and immobile, as also Devas, will ever narrate together, describing how the battle proceeded, as long as the earth is able to support those who occupy it.
vrm.6.102 The Devas, Gandharvas and Kinnaras thought that the battle was not equal between Rama standing on the ground and Ravana fighting from a chariot.
vrm.6.102 Seeing Rama afflicted, the Devas, Gandharvas, Charanas along with the Danavas, as also Siddhas and the great sages felt dejected.
vrm.6.102 Seated in their Vimanas aerial cars, Devas, Gandharvas, Uragas, the Sages, the Danavas and Daityas and those Garudas remaining in the air, saw then the battle of two heroes, fighting steadily with various dreadful weapons and looking like the final dissolution of the world.
vrm.6.102 Those Devas called to Rama saying again and again: "Be you victorious!".
vrm.6.105 "Worship the Sun god, the ruler of the worlds, who is crowned with the rays, who appears at the horizon, who is greeted by the Devas and Asuras alike, shines forth covering up all other lights and brings light to the world.
vrm.6.105 He protects the multitude of Devas and Asuras as well as their worlds by his rays.
vrm.6.105 Seeing Rama with a delighted mind, and becoming most exhildrated on foreseeing the death of Ravana, Surya, the sun god, standing in the middle of a troop of Devas, exclaimed, "Hasten up.
vrm.6.106 Then, the Devas along with the Gandharvas, Siddha and great Sages, desirous of Ravanas’ ruin, arrived to see the battle of both the chariot warrriors.
vrm.6.107 Then, the Devas along with Gandharvas, Siddhas, great Sages and all including Kinnaras and Uragas became disquieted.
vrm.6.107 While the Devas, the Danavas, Yakshas, the Pisachas, the Uragas and the Rakshasas were witnessing, that great battle occurred for seven days.
vrm.6.108 The time for his destruction has come now, as expressed by the Devas.
vrm.6.108 When Ravana, the cruel Rakshasa and the terror of all the worlds, was killed, a great rejoice filled the hearts of Devas and Charanas.
vrm.6.108 Then, troops of Devas got their mental peace.
vrm.6.110 "That Ravana, by whom Indra was thrown into fear, Yama was struck with terror, by whom Kubera the king was deprived of Pushpaka the Vimana aerial car, and by whom fear was caused on the battle field in the Gandharva in the sages and the great souled Devas, lies killed in the battle field.
vrm.6.110 "Here lies killed in battle, by a pedestrian man coming from Ayodhya, that Ravana, who was incapable of being killed by Devas and even so by Danavas and Rakshasas too.
vrm.6.112 Having seen the destruction of Ravana, those Devas, Gandharvas and Danavas, while chatting about the auspicious narrative, went away in their respective Vimanas aerial cars.
vrm.6.112 Chatting themselves about the awful destruction of Ravana, the terrific prowess of Rama, the admirable combat of the Vanaras, the counsel tendered by Sugreeva, the affection and valour of Lakshmana the son of Sumitra the loyaltyof Seetha to her husband and about the strength of Hanuma, the illustrious Devas and others rejoicingly returned as they had come.
vrm.6.113 “O gentle lady! These words of yours, endowed with preciousness and affection, are better than various kinds of collection of diamonds or the sovereignty over the Devas.
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 Lifting their long arms, their hands decked with ornaments, those excellent Devas thereupon, spoke as follows to Rama who stood there, making a respectful salutation to them with his folded hands.
vrm.6.117 "How do you, ignore Seetha who is falling into Agni fire, who is the maker of the entire cosmos, the foremost among those endowed with knowledge and an all capable person? How do you not know this Agni havyavanaha, the vehicle of offerings to gods to be the foremost of the troop of Devas?"
vrm.6.117 "O Rama! You appear as a great Uraga, in water, at the earth s bottom, bearing the three worlds, Devas, Gandharvas, and the Danavas.
vrm.6.117 O lord! The Devas created by Brahma are the hair on all your limbs.
vrm.6.119 "O Rama! Separated from you, the heaven is not a liking to me, nor the respect given to me by the foremost of Devas.
vrm.6.119 The Devas too have been fully gratified, by your killing of Ravana in battle.
vrm.6.120 All the Vanaras felt surprised, saying to one another "What miracle is this?" Seeing Rama, whose wish has been fully realised, all the foremost of Devas, with a great delight, spoke praisingly to Rama and Lakshmana: "O monarch! Proceed to Ayodhya from here and disband the Vanaras.
vrm.6.120 Thus speaking to Rama and Lakshmana, Indra the thousand eyed god of Devas, having beenpleased, returned to heaven with other Gods in their aerial cars, shining liek the sun.
vrm.6.120 having respectfully saluted all those Devas, Rama along with Lakshmana his brother, then instructed all the Vanaras to take rest in their respective places.
vrm.6.122 Even the Devas including Indra shall not be able to attack you.
vrm.6.128 Then, in the sky, groups of sages, Devas along with troop of the Maruts, praised Rama and sweet reverberation was heard.
vrm.6.128 On that occasion of the coronation ceremony of the intelligent Rama, who was well deserving it, the Devas and Gandharvas gracefully sang and troupes of Apsaras danced.
vrm.7.1 By good luck it is that thou hadst been encountered in a hand to hand combat with that foremost of Rakshasas, incapable of being slain by the Devas themselves ;and achieved victory ultimately.
vrm.7.1 By good fortune it is that thou, O mighty armed one, hadst been liberated from the bonds of that foe of the Devas whose course resembled that of Time and that thou also hadst secured victory.
vrm.7.3 And do thou take for thy vehicle this car, named Pushpaka, resembling the Sun himself, and thus raise thyself to an equality with the Devas.
vrm.7.3 Having said this, Brahma along with the Devas went to his own quarters.
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.7.5 The Devas, the Rishis, Yakshas, Gandharvas, Daityas and Danavas were all started to suffer oppression at their hands and ran away in grate confusion.
vrm.7.5 Once the king of the Devas, Indra, through the great Architect Viswakarma got the most magnificent and the most impregnable Lanka and as splendid as Amaravati of Indra, built on mount Suveladri, surrounded by mountain Trikuta, on the coast of the southern ocean.
vrm.7.5 And having wedded, O Rama, Sukesa s sons began to sport with their wives, like Devas sporting with Apsaras.
vrm.7.5 And those three foremost of Rakshasas, accompanied by hundreds of sons night rangers all elated on account of their measureless prowess, began to worry the sages and Nagas and Yakshas, and Devas with Indra at their head.
vrm.7.6 I am Vishnu, I am Rudra, I am the king of the Devas, I am Yama, I am Varuna, I am the Moon, I am the Sun, flattering themselves in this fashion, Mali and Sumali and the Rakshasa Malyavan as well as those going before them, are annoying the gods, breathing exhilaration of martial spirits.
vrm.7.6 Do thou, assuming thy terrific form, slay the thorns of the Devas.
vrm.7.6 Thereat, saluting Maheshvara with the sounds of Jaya, the Devas afflicted with the fear of the night rangers, presented themselves before Vishnu.
vrm.7.6 Become our refuge, O foremost of Devas.
vrm.7.6 Thus accosted by the deities, that god of gods Janardana who bringeth fear unto foes cheering up the Devas, said unto them, I know the Rakshasa, Sukesa, as flushed with the boon bestowed by Isana.
vrm.7.6 "And hearing of the activity of the Devas, the night ranger Malyavan addressed his heroic brothers, saying, The immortals and sages, going to Sankara, spake these words, desirous of our destruction, The terrific sons of Sukesa, pufed up, and swollen on account of their strength lowing from the boon, are crossing us at every step.
vrm.7.6 Then Narayana spoke unto the Devas with Indra at their head, I will slay those foes of the Devas.
vrm.7.6 Ye gods, cast of all fear O foremost of Rakshasas, Hari promised unto the frightened Devas that he would slay us.
vrm.7.6 And with arms plunging into the sea of Devas, we have conquered our unrivalled enemies.
vrm.7.6 The mind of Vishnu hath wavered in consequence of the evil caused by the Devas.
vrm.7.6 And pufed up with pride of prowess, the Rakshas march, leaving Lanka, and the enemies of the Devas went to the heavenly regions for battle.
vrm.7.6 And hymned by Siddhas and Devas and sages and mighty semi divine Nagas and Gandharvas and Yakshas, the enemy of the Asura hosts presented himself, bearing in his hands the discus, sword, that weapon Sarnga and the conch.
vrm.7.7 Then, having despatched thousands of Rakshasas, the destroyer of Madhu blew his water sprung conch, even as the sovereign of the Devas filleth clouds with rain.
vrm.7.8 O lord of the Devas, he that commits the crime of slaying one that desists from fight, cannot go to the celestial regions as the fruit of meritorious acts.
vrm.7.8 Seeing Malyavan resembling the mountain, Malyavan, stay, the powerful younger brother of the sovereign of the Devas spoke unto him, I have removed the fear of the deities, afrighted at you, by promising that I will make root and branch work with the Rakshasas; and that same promise I am now fulilling.
vrm.7.8 I should always lay down my life for serving the Devas ;and you I will slay even if ye should go to the nethermost regions.
vrm.7.8 No other than the god Narayana, holding the conch, the discus and the mace, could slay those Rakshasas foes to the Devas and thorns in the side of the deities.
vrm.7.10 And well pleased, the Great father came there along with the Devas.
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 Indeed, I deem as straw creatures such as men etc Thus accosted by the Raksha the Ten necked one that righteous souled one, the Great father, along with the Devas, said, O foremost of Rakshasas, what thou sayest shall come to pass.
vrm.7.10 Thereat the Devas in a body represented to the lord of creatures with joined hands, On Kumbhakarna thou shouldst, confer no boons, since thou knowest in what manner doth this wicked minded one frighten people.
vrm.7.10 Thus addressed by the Devas, Brahma, the Lotus born God told them; "O Devas, I have found a solution.
vrm.7.10 Kumbhakarna realised his folly for asking for sleep Nidra instead of unfeeling ness Nirdaya as he wanted, for the destruction of the Devas.
vrm.7.11 Devas are the progeny of Aditi by Kasyapa.
vrm.7.11 Notwithstanding the fraternal relationship between Devas and the Daityas their mothers Aditi and Diti also being sisters the daughters of Daksha by Dharani the Devas got the Daityas killed through Vishnu and got this earth also and became the Lords of all the three worlds.
vrm.7.11 You only are capable of turning the tables on the Devas and enable the Rakshasas to live in pride and comfort".
vrm.7.11 The Devas with the help of Vishnu, forced us to leave this land, and repair to other domains.
vrm.7.11 Knowing him thus, do thou, who is ever dear unto me and unto the Devas, and who always traverse the path of righteousness, do thou keep away from him.
vrm.7.11 And coming there frequently, Devas with Gandharvas and Apsaras and Nagas and Kinnaras, ever spot there.
vrm.7.11 And then even as the lord of the Devas ascends heaven, that foe of the immortals ascended Lanka well divided by highways, which had been forsaken by the lord of wealth.
vrm.7.12 Thirteen years have passed away since she had gone on a business of the Devas, as also the fourteenth year.
vrm.7.13 I have seen Nandana ravaged ;and I have heard of the sages slain, and O king, of the preparations the Devas are making against thee.
vrm.7.13 Once the term of restraint having been complete, that lord of the Devas Maheshvara with a gratified heart addressed me, saying, O righteous one, O thou of, fair vows, I am well pleased with this asceticism of thine.
vrm.7.13 The Devas along with the sages are pondering over the means of compassing thy death.
vrm.7.15 And then the Devas and the Gandharvas and the sages studying the Vedas, beholding the great encounter, were filled with mighty amazement.
vrm.7.16 And the lordly Nandi,undaunted, addressed the sovereign of the Rakshasas, saying Desist thou O Ten necked one Sankara; spoteth in the mountain ;and now He is incapable of being approached by every one Suparnas, Nagas and Yakshas Devas;, Gandharvas and Rakshas Hearing Nandi s speech, Ravana, wrought up with wrath, his eyes coppery, and his ear rings shaking, leapt down from Pushpaka.
vrm.7.16 And then the Devas with Indra at their head shook on their way; and the sea was wild and the mountains shook.
vrm.7.16 And Devas and men and Yakshas and others living on earth shall call thee Ravana terror to creatures.
vrm.7.16 I have already obtained a boon, bestowing on me immunity from death at the hands of Devas, Gandharvas and Danavas; and Rakshasas and Guhyakas and Nagas; and others also that are of more than oridinary strength.
vrm.7.17 My father s intended son in law was even Vishnu sovereign of the Devas, and the lord of the triune world ;and my father would not bestow me on any other.
vrm.7.18 Andcoming to Usiraviga, Ravana saw a kingnamedMarutta, sacrificing along with the Devas.
vrm.7.18 And a righteous Brahmarshi named Samvatta, the very brother of Brihaspati, officiated at the sacrifice accompanied by the Devas.
vrm.7.18 And seeing that Raksha invincible by reasoned the boon he had received, the Devas, apprehensive of being worsted by him, assumed the forms of beasts.
vrm.7.18 On Ravana having departed, the Devas, inhabiting the etherial regions Indra etc.
vrm.7.18 Thus did Indra chief of Devas, confer a boon on the peacock.
vrm.7.18 And this golden hue of thine shall proceed from my gratiication Having thus conferred boons on them at that festal place, the Devas, along with the king, on the sacrifice having ended, went to their abode.
vrm.7.20 Why, my child, dost thou slay these; thou art incapable of being slain by even the Devas.
vrm.7.20 The world of man is unworthy of being afflicted by thee who at incapable of being destroyed by Devas, Danavas Daityas, Yakshas, Gandharvas and Rakshas.
vrm.7.20 Thus addressed Lanka s lord, flaming in native energy, addressed Narada, laughing and saluting him, O thou that delightest in the sport of Devas and Gandharvas, and that takest pleasure in warfare, I am ready to go to the nethermost regions for the purpose of conquest.
vrm.7.20 And conquering the three worlds, and bringing under subjection Nagas and Devas I shall for Amrita churn the nether regions.
vrm.7.21 And, why, O thou honored of Devas, and Gandharvas, dost thou come Thereat the reverened sage, Narada, said ;Hearken.
vrm.7.22 And Devas and Gandharvas and Siddhas, and the supreme saints, placing Prajapati at their head, presented themselves at the fight.
vrm.7.22 And witnessing this wonder in the presence of the Devas and Danavas, both Death and Time were fired with wrath and were filled with delight.
vrm.7.22 And beholding Yama with his rod uplifted, the Devas were agitated.
vrm.7.22 And on Yama being desirous of slaying Ravana, the great father manifesting himself spake unto Yama: O Vaivasvata, O mighty armed one, O thou of imeasurable prowess, this certainly must not be: Thou shouldst not with thy rod slay the night ranger; for, O the foremost of Devas, I have conferred a boon on him; thou shouldst not render false the words that I have uttered.
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 Having vanquished Yama, the foremost of Devas, Ravana delighting in warfare, saw his adherents.
vrm.7.23 And making the Nivatakavachas desist from battle the ancient great father spake in clear words Even the Devas and the Asuras are not able to vanquish this Ravana in battle ;nor can the Danavas backed by the Devas can destroy you.
vrm.7.23 And seeing their own forces brought to straits in the conflict and driven back in the fight with networks of shafts, and down on the ground and seeing Ravana in Pushpaka, Varuna s sons swiftly shot into the welkin with their fleet footing cars And after they had attained a station of equal vantage with Ravana in the sky, great was the encounter that then, took place in the sky, resembling the encounter of the Devas and the Danavas.
vrm.7.24 He travels with the Devas, Pitris,Nagas and Suparnas.
vrm.7.24 Having defeated thousands of Devas in conflict, the high souled ones conquered the regions.
vrm.7.24 They were always engaged in those works which were not liked by the Devas and used to maintain their own men.
vrm.7.24 The glorious Hari, the lord Vishnu, knoweth only how to bring about their destruction who perpetually assail the Devas.
vrm.7.24 The person, who is standing at the door, hath brought into subjection, in thousands of years, a thousand of Indras, an Ayuta of Devas and hundreds of great Rishis.
vrm.7.26 Thereupon trembled all the three worlds consisting of mobile and immobile beings the Devas and all the Nagas became inert.
vrm.7.27 Being thus addressed Dasagriva, with folded hands, said "If thou art pleased with me O god! O lord of the worlds, O thou of great penances, if dost thou wish to communicate that incantation, do thou impart it upon me, O thou of great piety ;reciting which, O great one, I may be released of the fear of the Devas.
vrm.7.27 Forsooth, by thy favour, O lord of the Devas, I shall be invincible by all
vrm.7.27 Salutation unto thee, god, O lord of gods, O thou worshipped of the Devas and Asuras.
vrm.7.27 Thou art time, the strength and hast blue neck and a large belly ;thou art the destroyer of the Devas the foremost of the ascetics and the lord of all created beings.
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 And beholding that highly powerful person amongst men like unto the chief of gods amongst the Devas, the moon amongst the planets, the lion amongst the Sarabhas the Airavata amongst the elephants, the Meru amongst the mountanis, and the Parijata amongst the trees, the ten nerked Rakshasa said "Give me battle.
vrm.7.28 Hearing those words of Ravana the night rangers said "That man, who crusheth down the pride of the Devas and Asuras, hath entered hither.
vrm.7.28 And being thus addressed, that enemy, of the Devas, stood up and with his down erect, said to that highly resplendant deity Who art thou gifted with great energy and like unto the fire of dissolution ?Tell me, who art thou, O deity and whence thou hast come hither.
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.7.28 O foremost of the Devas, I am immortal I do not fear thee ;and even if I meet with death, I may have it from thee and no one else, O Lord.
vrm.7.28 The Adityas, the Maruts, the Siddhas, the two Aswins, Rudras, the mines, Yama, Kubera, the oceans, mountains, rivers, all the divisions of the Veda and knowledge, ie, Planets, stars, sky, Siddhas, Gandharvas, Charanas, the ascetics conversant with the knowledge of Vedas, Garudas and the Nagas, the other Devas, Yakshas, Daityas and Rakshasas, were all seen in their incorporeal forms, on the person of that great Purusha, lying down.
vrm.7.28 All those dancing persons are the Devas equalling that intelligent Kapila in energy and power.
vrm.7.29 While thus returning the vicious souled Ravana, with delight, carried away stealthily, on his way, the daughters of the Rajarshis, Devas and Danavas.
vrm.7.29 They were like the females of the Devas and the burning gold and were all afflicted by grief, sorrow and terror and were young.
vrm.7.30 O lord of Rakshasas, these illusory powers being usued in a conflict, even the Devas and Asuras shall not be able to perceive his course.
vrm.7.30 Thereupon going there with his son and Vibhishana, Dasagriva got down all those damsels,speechless with tears, gifted with auspicious marks,the precious females of the Devas, Danavas and Rakshasas.
vrm.7.30 Having slain today in the encounter that Madhu, who is not afraid of Ravana, shall, encircled by my friends, and desirous of battle, proceed to the region of the Devas.
vrm.7.30 And beholding Ravana proceed, hundreds of Daityas, inimical to the Devas, followed him.
vrm.7.30 I shall go with him for conquests to the region of the Devas.
vrm.7.30 Being desirous of conquering the region of the Devas he prays for thy help.
vrm.7.31 This is the everlasting law of the Devas that the Apsaras have no husband; they cannot be the wife of one husband.
vrm.7.32 And there arose in the region of Devas an uproar from the Rakshasa army, like unto the sound of the agitated deep.
vrm.7.32 Being thus addressed by Sakra, the Devas, his equals in the encounter and gifted with great prowess, armed themselves for fight.
vrm.7.32 Being thus addressed by Sakra the lord Naranaya; said "Do not fear, hear what I say He is invincible by vitue of the boon, and that vicious souled one is incapable of being vanquished even by the Devas and Asuras.
vrm.7.32 O lord of Devas, even if I am requested by thee, I shall not withstand the Rakshasa, Ravana in the conflict.
vrm.7.32 However I do promise before thee, O lord of the Devas, O performer of hundred sacrifices, I shall, soon become the cause of this Rakshasa s death.
vrm.7.32 I shall soon destroy Ravana with his family in due time and afford delight unto the Devas.
vrm.7.32 I speak the truth unto thee, O king of the Devas, O lord of Sachi; do thou divested of fear, fight, O thou gifted with great strength, along with the Devas.
vrm.7.32 Thereupon there ensued a conflict, setting up a terrible sound, with various weapons between the Rakshasas and Devas.
vrm.7.32 Thereupon there arose with Rakshasas a terrible encounter of the Devas unable to bear their fame in battle.
vrm.7.32 Then the Rakshasas, with thousands of terrible weapons, began to belabour the Devas in the encounter.
vrm.7.32 And the Devas, as well, began to send the redoubtable, powerful and terrific Rakshasas, with the stroke of blameless weapons, to the abode of Death, In the interim, O Rama, a Rakshasa, Sumalin, by name, getting enraged and with diverse weapons, ran amock of the soldiery, the winds scatter clouds, so, he, under the
vrm.7.32 Thereupon being assailed by a downpour of huge shafts, maces, Prasas and diverse dreadful weapons, the Devas could not keep their ground upon the field of warfare.
vrm.7.32 The Devas being thus distressed by Sumalin the eighth Vasu Savitra stood there enraged.
vrm.7.33 Beholding Sumalin slain and reduced to ashes by Vasu and being assailed by the Devas the Rakshasa host led into diverse directions.
vrm.7.33 And as soon as he, armed with various weapons, entered the field the Devas, at his very sight, fled away to all directions.
vrm.7.33 Thereupon beholding the Devas terrified and pierced with shafts, Indra, the king of gods, said Be not afraid, O ye Devas ;do not ly away ;come back to the battle ;this my son, who has never been vanquished, goes to battle.
vrm.7.33 And having encircled Sachi s son and encountered Ravana s son the Devas began to assail him.
vrm.7.33 And the encounter between Mahendra s son Jayanta and Ravana s son Meghanada, and that between the Devas and Rakshas was like one between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.7.33 The Devas or the Rakshasas they could not recognize one another and being distressed then ran about on all sides.
vrm.7.33 Being enveloped with darkness and having their senses bewildered the Devas killed their own kith and the Rakshasas their own men and others led away.
vrm.7.33 And thinking that Jayanta was slain all the Devas greatly sorry and distressed led away on all sides.
vrm.7.33 Thereupon Ravana s son enraged and encircled by his own powerful followers, persued the Devas emitting loud cries.
vrm.7.33 Not beholding his son and observing the flight of the Devas the king of the Devas said to Matali "Bring my car.
vrm.7.33 In the interval the heroic and the highly powerful Dasagriva ascended the celestial car, constructed by the Architect of the Devas, encircled by the huge bodied Nagas capable of making down erect and by whose breath the battle field was ablaze.
vrm.7.33 Thereupon there arose an encounter between the Rakshasas and the Devas and there began a downpour of weapons in the conflict like clouds.
vrm.7.33 And by him enraged, the Devas were assailed with his teeth, feet, arms, hands, Saktis, Tomaras and clubs or any weapon whatsoever.
vrm.7.33 And other night ranges, having their bodies sundered by the Devas gave up their being.
vrm.7.33 Having beheld his own army slain by the Devas the highly powerful Dasanana, enraged, entered the ocean of celestial army and slaying the Devas in the conflict confronted Sakra.
vrm.7.34 Thereupon darkness having set in all, the Devas and Rakshasas, maddened with their strength, began to fight crushing one another.
vrm.7.34 I shall soon with the stroke of vaious weapons despatch the Devas to the abode of Death.
vrm.7.34 I shall slay Indra, Kubera, Varuna and Yama what to speak of more I shall soon destroy all the Devas and place myself above them.
vrm.7.34 Thereupon being apprised of his intention, Sakra, the king of the Devas, stationed on car, said to the Devas, in the field of battle "O ye Devas hear my words, what appear to me best.
vrm.7.34 Having left behind all other Devas he pursued Indra and the highly effulgent Mahendra too espied his enemy s son.
vrm.7.34 And albeit assailed by the highly powerfuf Devas, Ravana s son, divested of mail, entertained no fear.
vrm.7.34 And having seen Mahendra carried away by force from the battle field the Devas thought What is this?" That conqueror of Sakra and subduer of enemies, conversant with illusory powers, was not visible, by whom, Indra, although master of many illusions, was carried away by force.
vrm.7.34 In the meantime, the Devas, all enraged, covered Ravana with a downpour of shafts and belaboured him.
vrm.7.34 By virture of my illusory powers I have made Mahendra captive lord of the three worlds and of the celestial host; I have crushed down the pride of the Devas.
vrm.7.34 Hearing those words of Ravana s son the Devas retired from thebattle and went away without Sakra.
vrm.7.34 And hearing those words of his son, the lord the night rangers, the subduer of the Devas, having great prowess and wide spread fame, desisted from fighting and affectionately said to his son "O dear child! you have enhanced the glory of our race displaying thy prowess like a highly powerful man.
vrm.7.34 Thou hast vanquished the Devas and their king of unequalled might.
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.7.35 And that Rakshasa shall be powerful and "irrepressible, by whose help, O king, the Devas have been brought under thy subjection.
vrm.7.35 Do thou therefore, O thou having long arms, release Mahendra, the chastiser of Paka and for setting him free what do thou want from the Devas ?"Thereupon the highly powerful Indrajit the subduer of enemies, said "If dost thou say so, O god, I pray for immortality.
vrm.7.35 Thereupon Meghanada released Indra and the Devas returned to their own abode.
vrm.7.35 Having created that female I was thinking, O king of the Devas !O foremost of the Devas !,on whom I should confer her.
vrm.7.35 And that virtuous souled, great ascetic enjoyed her company ;and for my thus conferring her upon Gautama all the Devas were disappointed.
vrm.7.35 Thou wast then imprecated by him, enraged and gifted with great efulgence saying, O lord of the Devas, thou hast attained to a change of circumstances for which, O Vasava, thou hast fearlessly ravished my spouse.
vrm.7.35 And whoever shall be the lord of the Devas, shall not have his position secure.
vrm.7.35 Thou shalt be purified by that sacrifice and go to heaven ;and thy son, O lord of Devas, hath not been destroyed in the conflict.
vrm.7.35 Hearing this and having celebrated the sacrifice in honor of Vishnu he again went to the region of Devas and reigned there as their king.
vrm.7.35 I have thus described to thee the strength of Indrajit what to speak of others he vanquished even Indra the king of the Devas.
vrm.7.35 And Agastya said Rama", Ravana, the thorn of people, then grew in power, by whom, in the company of his son, Indra, the lord of the Devas, was defeated.
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.7.36 The mountain had a thousand summits and the Lions were residing in the caves and hundreds of fountain were falling from it; the mountain was as if laughing aloud and the Devas, Gandharvas, Apsaras and Kinnaras were sporting there with their females; and it appeared in consequence thereof like the region of Devas; and rivers, with waters transparent like crystal, were lowing.
vrm.7.36 And having finished the worship of Siva, the foremost of Devas, having the moon on his crown, the conferrer of boons and the remover of miseies, the night ranger danced with uplifted hands and sang before it.
vrm.7.37 Dasagriva being thus bonded the Siddhas, Charanas and the Devas exclaimed, "Well done! Well done !!"showered flowers upon Arjuna.
vrm.7.37 Not the least moved thereby the king Arjuna, the slayer of enemies, bore those weapons of the enemies of the Devas.
vrm.7.38 Therupon Pulastya heard from the Devas of the capture of Ravana like unto the holding of the wind.
vrm.7.38 O lord ;today hath my religious observance been fruitful ;today hath my bith proved blessed and to day hath my devout penance been crowned with success, for I bow unto thy feet, which have been worshipped by the Devas.
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 distressed with hunger on account of the absence of the mother, Hanuman, just born, cried like Kartikeya, the commandcr in chief of the Devas, in the forest of Saras.
vrm.7.40 The child Hanuman having thus ascended the sky, Devas, Danavas and Yakshas surprisingly exclaimed "The velocity, with which Marut s son is going, is not possessed even by the Wind, Garuda and mind.
vrm.7.40 And repairing to the house of Indra, Sinhika s son, in wrath and with frowns, said to him encircled by the Devas "O Vasava !O slayer of Bala and Vritra to remove my hunger thou didst give me both the sun and moon; why thou hast then given them to another ?On account of the Parva I came to devour the sun but another Rahu came and possessed him.
vrm.7.40 Hearing the words of Rahu, the King of the Devas, wearing a golden garland, having his understanding bewildered, proceeded, on the back of his elephant chief Airavat, huge like the summit of the Kailasa hill, with temporal juice always trickling, having four tusks, roaring, and adorned with golden bells, towards Hanuman and the sun with Rahu before him.
vrm.7.40 He being thus overwhelmed by the stroke of Indra s thunder bolt, the Vayu became displeased with the king of Devas and was determined upon bringing about mischief unto all created beings.
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 And with their bellies swollen for the obstruction of the wind the Devas with folded hands said "O lord of created beings, thou hast created four classes of beings and thou hast given us wind to preserve our lives.
vrm.7.40 Hearing the words of Rahu, Indra, the king of the Devas, hath belaboured the Vayu s son.
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 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 At this time was returning by that way, Indra, the leader of the Devas after having worshipped the feet 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.7.43 I am not the least surprised to learn, O twice born one, that those two sons of the Devas would be two highly powerful leading Vanaras since their origin is divine.
vrm.7.43 O Rama, in the golden age, having bowed unto the Patriarch s son, the truthful Rishi Sanatkumara, highly effulgent, resplandent like unto the sun, ning in his native brilliance and seated at his own place, Ravana, the lord of Rakshasas, said "Who is now amongst all the Devas brave and powerful, by whose help the Devas can vanquish their enemies and whom the twice born ones daily worship and the devotees meditate upon, thou having piety for wealth, O thou gifted vith six sorts of wealth, do thou describe this to me kindly.
vrm.7.43 The learned duly, in their sacrifices, worship that Hari, respected of people and drinking nectar, who is the lord of the universe, whose origin we do not know, who is daily worshipped by the Devas and Asuras, who is highly powerful Narayana from whose navel has spumg Brahma, the creator of the world, and who has created the Universe consisting of mobile and immobile beings.
vrm.7.43 He always vanquisheth in encounter Daityas Danavas, Rakshasas and all other enemies of the Devas and every one of them worships him.
vrm.7.43 Hearing those Words of the great ascetic Sanatkumara, Ravana, the lord of Rakshasas, bowing, replied "Being slain by Hari to what station do the Daityas, Danavas and Rakshasas attain? And why doth Hari destroy them ?"Whereto Sanatkumara replied "Whoever are slain by the Devas do eternally reside in their region.
vrm.7.44 The Devas, Asuras or Nagas none is capable of casting his looks upon him.
vrm.7.44 At the end of the golden age and the beginning of Treta Yuga the deity Narayana shall assume a human form for the benefit of men and Devas.
vrm.7.45 the highly effulgent one narrated onto me the last portion of this story in the presence of the Devas, Gandharvas, Siddhas, ascetics and other great O lord of kings, O conferrer of honors, do thou listen to that story which removeth monstrous iniquity.
vrm.7.45 Hearing this,O thou having long arms, the Rishis, and the Devas with delighted hearts, said to the ascetic Narada "He who shall reverentially listen to this story every day, shall be blessed with sons and grandsons and be honored in the region of the Devas.
vrm.7.46 After Narada had reached there, the illustrious Dasanana went to that insular continent beyond even the reach of the Devas.
vrm.7.46 Thou art Narayana, holing discus, conch and club ;thou hast in thy hands the lotus, thunder bolt and other weapons; thou art worshipped of all Devas ;thou art graced with the mystic mark Srivatsa,.
vrm.7.46 adored by all Devas, hast a lotus navel, art a great ascetic, and Hrishikesha declaring fearlessness unto all devotees.
vrm.7.46 Thou at the the three qualities, the three Vedas and the regions that of the Devas, of the mortals and the region under the earth.
vrm.7.46 Thy work is manifest in time, past, present and future ;thou art the observer of three Vedas and the destroyer of the enemies of the Devas.
vrm.7.46 O foremost of the Devas, the work of the Devas hath been accomplished.
vrm.7.46 The Rishis, having piety for their wealth and all the Devas have been pleased.
vrm.7.47 Many kings, Vibhishana, Sugriva, Hanuman and many others adorned the assembly and Rama excelled Indra, the lord of the Devas, in splendour.
vrm.7.50 Thereupon the highly effulgent Rama, the descendant of Raghu said to Sugriva :"O gentle one, proceeding to the city of Kishkindha, hard to be got at by the Devas and Asuras, do thou reign there undisturbed with thy councillors.
vrm.7.52 Thereupon wearing a beautifully coloured cloth and being adorned with various ornaments Sita appeared before Rama like unto Sachi approaching the king of Devas in heaven.
vrm.7.53 Indeed Rama hath accomplished a wonderfully hard work; our ancestors, the Devas, the Danavas none heard of constructing a bridge over the ocean Rama? hath slain the irrepressible Ravana with his army and brought over the Vanaras, Rikshas and Rakshasas to his own side.
vrm.7.55 To secure my confidence, Sita, in your very presence, entered fire, At that time, O Saumitri, fire, carrying sacrificial oblations and the wind of the sky declared Sita s innocence before the Devas.
vrm.7.55 Indra, he king of the Devas, himself handed over the chaste Sita unto me in the island of Lanka.
vrm.7.55 Even the Devas speak ill of bad name whereas fame is adored in all the regions.
vrm.7.57 Do thou satisfy the Devas, O chaste damsel.
vrm.7.60 Even that Rama, who, when enraged, is capable of slaying the Devas, Gandharvas, Asuras and Rakshasas, hath been engaged in the worship of destiny.
vrm.7.61 During the encounter between the Devas and Asuras, the Asuras, being remonstrated with by the Devas sought shelter of the wife of Bhrigu thy priest.
vrm.7.61 Having beheld the Asuras thus helped by Bhrigu s wife, Hari, the king of the Devas, enraged, chopped of her head with his sharp discus.
vrm.7.65 That powerful king made a picturesque city like that of the Devas near the hermitage of Gautama.
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.7.66 At that time Mitra in conjunction with Varuna was reigning in Varuna s kingdom being worshipped by all Devas.
vrm.7.66 Thereat Urvasi, with folded hands, said "O lord of Devas, Mitra himself has already invited me for the same.
vrm.7.66 Nahusha, powerful as Indra, was the son of Ayu, When Indra, the king of the Devas, was assailed with thunderbolt by the Asura Vritra,Nahusha governed his kingdom for a hundred thousand years.
vrm.7.67 HEARING this wonderful and heaven]v theme Lakshmana was highly gratified and said to Rama "O Kakuthstha, how did that twice born, one worshipped by the Devas and the king regain their bodies, after being bodiless.
vrm.7.67 Thereupon the Devas, highly pleased, addressed the consciousness of Nimi saying "O royal saint, do thou accept boons ;where shall we place thy consciousness ?"Thereupon being addressed by the Devas the consciousness said "I may live in the eye of the Devas.
vrm.7.67 Having said this the Devas repaired to thew respective quaters and the high souled Rishis conveyed Nimi s body to the sacrificial ground and dedicated it as an edy began to churn it with great energy accompanied by incantations.
vrm.7.69 Thereupon after a long time he breathed his last and went to the abode of the Devas.
vrm.7.71 After the worship of the Devas and Brahmana aid the feasting of the servants, male, and female, I used to take my food.
vrm.7.71 I used to preserve with great care the articles belonging to the tutelary Devas, was humble, good natured and engaged in the well being of all animals.
vrm.7.72 Beholdng that lord of men, the Vulture said :"O preserver of humanity, thou art the foremost, of Devas and Asuras.
vrm.7.74 So long as hou, O mighty Asura, dost not assail Devas and Vipras, so long shall this be thine, otherwise it shall come to naught, deducing to cinders the person that shall rashly enter upon conflict with thee, this dart shall return to thy hand.
vrm.7.76 And on being installed Kakutstha resembled the Sun ;and he was like Skanda formerly installed by the Devas led by Indra.
vrm.7.76 O Kakutstha, this shaft was forged when invisible by Devas and Asuras the divine self sprung and invincible deity reposed on the mighty main, and when creation was oppressed by Madhu and Kaitabha as well as other Rakshasas.
vrm.7.78 For immense riches the sacrifice appeared like one performed by the Devas.
vrm.7.80 He having been engaged in making prepaitions to conquer the world of Devas the celestial chief Indra with other immortals was greatly terrified.
vrm.7.80 With this promise, the king Mandhata went up into the celestial region so that he would occupy the half of Indra s throne and kingdom and the Devas would adore him.
vrm.7.82 O thou of a vicious soul, as did the Devas behold Ravana slain so shall the Rishis and learned Brahmans behold thee, destroyed by me.
vrm.7.82 And that hero falling there arose a terrible uproar amongst the Rishis, Devas, Gandharvas and Apsaras.
vrm.7.82 What more, being disturbed, the Devas, Asuras, Gandharvas, saints and Apsaras and all other creatures of the world approached the Great Patriarch, the conferrer of boons and said: "The fear of the Devas and the destruction of the creatures hath arrived.
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 he said "Hear, O ye Devas, Satrughna hath taken up this arrow for the destruction of Lavana.
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.7.82 And piercing his heat that arrow entered speedily into Rasatala And having entered Rasatala tha arrow, honored by the Devas, again came to the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon chanting the glories of Satrughna, the Devas, Rishis, Pannagas, Apsaras, said "O son of Dasaratha, it is really fortunate, that thou, renouncing fear, hast acquired victory and that the Rakshasa Lavana hath been vanquished like a serpent.
vrm.7.83 Lavana being slain the Devas headed by Agni and Indra said in sweet accents to Satrughna the represser of enemies "O child, fortunate it is that thou hast been crowned with success after slaying the Rakshasa Lavana.
vrm.7.83 Hearing the words of the Devas the large armed and self controlled Satrughna placed his hands on his head and said
vrm.7.83 "Let his picturesque and charming city of Madhu, built by the Devas, be my capital; this is the only excellent boon I can beg.
vrm.7.83 The Devas, with a delighted heart, said to the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.83 The high souled Devas having ascended the welkin saying this, the highly effulgent Satrughna brought the soldiers there, that were encamped on the banks of the Ganges.
vrm.7.83 Beholding the city interspersed with vaious excellent gardens, pleasure grounds and prosperously filled with Devas and men and diverse articles of trade and merchants hailing from various countries, Satrughna, the younger brother of Bharata, attained to the satisfaction of desire and excess of delight.
vrm.7.83 Thereupon having set up the city resembling the region of the Devas and filled with various men, the king Satrughna, the enhancer of Raghu s race, determined on beholding Rama s feet.
vrm.7.84 Lavana being slain, the Devas have been greatly delighted what more the well being of the whole universe and all creatures has been brought about.
vrm.7.89 And that Sudra being slain, Indra, Agni and other Devas praised him again and again and showered flowers.
vrm.7.89 And being greatly delighted, the Devas said to Rama, having truth for his prowess: "O thou of a great mind, thou hast nicely performed this god like work.
vrm.7.89 Hearing the words of the Devas, Rama, having truth for his prowess, said with folded hands to Purandara, of a thousand eyes "If the Devas are pleased, I beg for this boon that the son of the twice born one may be restored to life.
vrm.7.89 Hearing the words of Rama the leading Devas delightedly said "Do thou return, O Kakutstha.
vrm.7.89 Saying so be it to the words of the Devas that descendant of Raghu ascended his golden car Pushpaka, And having ascended spacious cars the Devas proceeded to the hermitage of Agastya born of a Kumbha.
vrm.7.89 Thereupon beholding the Devas present the virtuous souled Agastya, the jewel of asceticism, welcomed them particularly.
vrm.7.89 The Devas having depated Rama descended from Pushpaka and saluted that effulgent and foremost of Rishis Agastya.
vrm.7.89 The Devas informed me that thou wert coming having slain the Sudra ascetic.
vrm.7.89 This ornament, O gentle one, hath bees made by the architect of the Devas ;its make is very beautiful and it is dazzling by its own lustre.
vrm.7.89 fearing the words of Rama, the great saint Agastya replied saying "O Rama, O son of Dasaratha, at the beginning of the golden age, people had no king; but Vasava was the ruler of the Devas.
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 the Devas gave each a portion of their own energies.
vrm.7.89 And in his person Brahma placed in equal proportions the energies of the Devas.
vrm.7.92 Having thus established his kingdom, Danda, with his priest, began to lord over it filled with healthy and delighted people like unto the lord of Devas in their region.
vrm.7.92 O Rama, like unto Mahendra governing his kingdom of heaven under the guidance of Brihaspati, the preceptor of Devas, Danda, the grand son of Manu, governed his own kingdom with the help of Usanas.
vrm.7.93 Arajas cried aloud in forest at no distance from the hermitage and waited for her sire who had been away on visiting the Devas.
vrm.7.95 Even the leading Devas worship him.
vrm.7.95 Like unto the immortals welcoming the Chief of the Devas, the Rishis showered blessings upon Rama from all sides while he was proceeding.
vrm.7.96 O thou of unmitigated prowess, as the Devas honor the patriarch so other kings hold thee in reverence.
vrm.7.97 O thou having long arms, formerly, during the war between Devas and Asuras there flourished a highly honored Asura under the name of Vritra.
vrm.7.97 Having resolved thus and placed his son Madhureswara on the throne Vritra engaged in austerities creating terror unto all Devas.
vrm.7.97 Thyself being enraged, O lord of Devas, Vritra shall not live even for a moment.
vrm.7.97 O Vishnu, all the Devas are waiting for thee ;do thou help them by slaying Vritra.
vrm.7.97 O thou having a large mind, thou at always the help of these high souled Devas.
vrm.7.98 "Hearing the words of Indra and other Devas Vishnu replied From before I am bound with the high souled Vritra by the ties of fiendship.
vrm.7.98 Vishnu, the god of gods, having said this, the Devas replied, saying "O slayer of demons, undoubtedly, what thou hast said, shall prove true ;may victory crown thee ;we proceed now to slay Vritra.
vrm.7.98 Beholding that foremost of Asuras, the Devas were greatly terrified and began to think of plans by which they would be able to slay him and not be defeated.
vrm.7.98 Beholding the enemy slain and Indra fled, the Devas headed by fire again and again chanted the glories of Vishnu the lord of three worlds, saying "O great god, thou at the refuge of the three worlds.
vrm.7.98 Hearing the words of the Devas Vishnu said "Let your Chief celebrate a sacrifice in my honor and by that he shall be cleansed of the sin.
vrm.7.98 If the slayer of Paka celebrates a horse sacrifice, he shall again fearlessly be installed as the chief of Devas.
vrm.7.98 Having addressed these nectar like words to the Devas and being glorified by them, Vishnu, the god of gods, returned to his abode.
vrm.7.99 Having thus described at length and finished the story of Vritra s destruction Lakshmana said The mighty Vritra, the terror of the Devas, being slain, and the slayer Indra, being assailed by the sin of Brahmanicide, was bewildered and at a loss to ascetain his duty.
vrm.7.99 In this wise, the time of the destruction of creatures having arrived, the Devas being stricken with anxiety, according to the previous command of Vishnu, engaged in celebrating the sacrifice With Rishis and Ritwikas they fearfully approached Purandara ;and beholding him assailed by the sin of Brahmanicide, they with him, at their head, engaged in celebrating a horse sacrifice.
vrm.7.99 After the sacrifice the sin issued out of Indra s person and addressing the high souled Devas said "Do ye all ascertain, where I shall go now.
vrm.7.99 Thereupon highly pleased the Devas replied "Do thou divide thyself into four portions.
vrm.7.99 Hearing the words of the high souled Devas she divided herself into four pats, and wishing for a separate habitation said "By one portion, I shall at my pleasure, live in rivers full of water duing rains and shall obstruct people from going there.
vrm.7.99 Heaing those words the Devas said "What thou hast said shall be caried out.
vrm.7.99 Thereupon the Devas, delighted, adored their Chief divested of sins and crowned with victory.
vrm.7.100 O descendant of Raghu, being terrified, the generous Devas, the rich Daityas, the highly powerful Nagas, the irrepressible Rakshasas, Gandharvas and Yakshas used to adore him perpetually.
vrm.7.100 And albeit so very powerful the highly illustrious king of Valheeka never swerved from the path of morality nor neglected his Devas and rather intelligently used to administer all business.
vrm.7.106 And beholding this wonderful sacrifice resembling that of the Devas, his followers, the Rishis, made charming cottages in a solitary corner and at no distance.
vrm.7.110 Because Vaidehi formerly underwent a trial in the city of Lanka before the Devas I brought her home.
vrm.7.110 Being apprised of Rama s intention as to Sita s trial the Devas all came there on the occasion.
vrm.7.110 And beholding the Devas and Rishis assembled there Rama again said to Valmiki "O foremost of Munis, the words, of the high souled Rishis, are divested of sin; therefore on thy words only I shall consider Sita as having pure ways.
vrm.7.110 Eulogising her at that time, the Devas said "Oh I highly praisewothy is thy conduct, O Sita.
vrm.7.110 Being present in the welkin and beholding Sita enter into the Earth, the Devas again and again eulogised her in various words.
vrm.7.111 Do thou therefore bring back my Sita or give me a region of the Devas, I wish to live with Sita.
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.7.113 Hearing of the arival of the great saint Gargya with above valuable presents sent by his material uncle Yudhajit, the intelligent Rama, with his brothers, proceeded about a Krosa to receive him and adored him particularly likely unto the lord of Devas honoring Brihaspati.
vrm.7.113 Thereupon the great Rishi being seated, he said Thou art the foremost of those skilled in the at of speech like the very preceptor of the Devas.
vrm.7.113 And Rama s army unconquerable even by the Devas went on for a month, from the city like a celestial host under the command of Indra.
vrm.7.114 Even the Devas could not recollect if such a dreadful encounter had happened before.
vrm.7.115 And in the country of Mallya he reared a city for Chandraketu, named Chandrakanti highly picturesque and like unto the city of Devas.
vrm.7.116 Being thus addressed by Rama, a lion amongst kings, the ascetic said "If dost thou wish to bring about the well being of the Devas, my earnest desire is that we may talk over it in a solitary place.
vrm.7.117 Thou didst use to protect the Devas whenever they were assailed by any calamity.
vrm.7.117 And if dost thou wish to repair to the region of immortals, do thou again lord over the Devas in thy Vishnu form and let them be freed from anxiety.
vrm.7.119 And on the wane of virtue, forsooth, the three worlds, with Devas, saints, mobile and immobile creations, shall be destroyed.
vrm.7.119 Lakshmana, the younger brother of Rama, being thus engaged in penances, having obstructed his breath, Apsaras, Indra and other Devas and Rishis showered flowers on him.
vrm.7.119 the king of Devas entered his own city.
vrm.7.119 Thereupon beholding Lakshmana, the fouth portion of Vishnu arived at their city the Devas were greatly delighted and engaged in his worship.
vrm.7.121 Apprised of Rama s determination of going to heaven, Vanaras, born of the Devas, Rishis and Gandharvas taking Sugriva before them, came there to see Rama.
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 There blew the holy, fragrant and delightful winds and there fell profusely celestial flowers from the hands of the Devas.
vrm.7.123 Thereupon the Patriarch gave vent to the following accents from tho welkin "Come O Vishnu ;may good betide thee ;by our good fortune thou art coming here; O Raghava hear O thou having mighty arms, do thou enter here with thy brothers, resembling the Devas in billiance in whatever form thou likest either in that of the sky or in thy own vishnu form.
vrm.7.123 Thereupon all the Devas Sadhyas Maruts, headed by Indra and Agni worshipped that deity, Vishnu.
vrm.7.123 Thereupon eulogising him the Devas said "Our region is now freed from sins and all here have been delighted and all their desires have been fulilled.
vrm.7.123 They shall enter into the Devas from whom they had respectively originated.
vrm.7.123 And they shall obtain their respective fathers forms among the Devas present.
vrm.7.123 The lord of the Devas having said this, all those who were present at the holy pilgimage of Goparatra descended into the waters of Sarayu with eyes full of tears of joy.
vrm.7.123 And in those celestial forms, they looked effulgent like the Devas.
