vrm.2.2 "After returning from battle, Rama goes to citizens on an Elephant or a chariot and inquires about their well being as though they were his own kinsmen, like a father does to his sons.
vrm.2.3 Vasishta, the best of Brahmans, hearing the words of king Dasaratha, ordered the officers who stood there with folded hands before the king, as follows: "Gather the following in the sacred fire house of the king at dawn: gold and the like, diamonds, things needed to perform worship, various herbs, white floral garlands, corn, honey and clarified butter in separate vessels, new clothes, chariot, all weapons, the four divisions of army, an Elephant with auspicious signs, white fan, flag staff, white umbrella, one hundred golden pots with brilliant shine, bull with gilded horns and a complete tiger skin".

vrm.2.20 Rama, who was greatly hurt, sighed like an Elephant, subdued his senses and went to his mothers palace along with Lakshmana Rama saw a much worshipped old man sitting at the gateway of the house and many other standing there.
vrm.2.21 After hearing the pathetic lamentation of his mother, he was highly anguished, as when an Elephant is removed highly from its way by men with flames of fire.
vrm.2.23 Seeing Rama with the tip of his eyes obliquely, Lakshmana spoke to him moving his forehand like an Elephant moving its trunk and causing his head to fall in oblique and upward direction.
vrm.2.23 Let all people see it!" "By my prowess, I shall turn back this destiny, as framing back an Elephant which is not caring a hook and which is fiercely running with violent force.
vrm.2.26 Oh, valiant prince! A glorious Elephant which is worshipped for its good characteristics, resembling a mountain crowned with a dark cloud is not seen ahead in your journey.
vrm.2.26 Oh, brave man pleasant with the sight! I do not see marching before you an Elephant having been placed in front with an excellent seat embroidered in gold meant for you While coronation is getting ready now, the colour of your face is appearing strange.
vrm.2.30 persecuted with many homilies like a female Elephant pierced with poisoned arrows, she shed tears that had long been held back even as a piece of wood would emit fire throught attrition with another Crystal like tears woozed from her eyes because of grief, like water drops from two lotus flowers.
vrm.2.30 "Oh Seetha, with thighs like the posteriors of an Elephant! Earlier, righeousness like fulfilling the father s command was practised by good men.
vrm.2.32 "Oh, the best of brahmanas! I am giving you this Elephant called Satrunjaya, given earlier to me by my maternal uncle as well as those thousand Elephants.
vrm.2.33 That Rama the virtuous man, by walking with strides of an Elephant in rut, approached his father s palace, which from a distance glowed like a peak of the Kailasa mountain.
vrm.2.37 Hearing the words of the chief minister, Rama who was well versed in courtesy, spoke then to Dasaratha as follows: "Of what use for me, who have forsaken enjoyments, cast away attachment for everything and am going to live in the forest on nomadic food, Oh king, with an army accompanying me?" "Who, after giving away a first class Elephant, will work out his mind on a rope with which it is tied? What use is there for him through attachment to the rope after abandaning the excellent Elephant?" "Oh, the best among good men! So also, what use is there for me by the army Oh, King, when I am giving away absolutely all.
vrm.2.40 In front of him was heard a huge noise of crying women, echoing like trumpeting of female Elephants when a lordly Elephant has been pinioned.
vrm.2.40 Seeing them coming by foot, though worthy of a chariot, habituated to comfort and unworthy of suffering, Rama commanded the charioteer with words: "Drive fast!" Rama the tiger among men, feeling pained, as an Elephant being pricked by a good, indeed was not able to bear that plight of his father and his mother.

vrm.2.48 Oppressed with sorrow and weeping, women in every house heaped reproaches on their husbands who came home, with words as sharp as pricks of the goad which attack an Elephant.
vrm.2.48 Rama, whose face is like the full moon, of dark brown complexion, whose collar bone is invisible because of its being covered with flesh, a conqueror of foes, whose arms descend to his knees, whose eyes resemble lotuses, the elder brother of Lakshmana, who takes initiative in speaking and expresses with sweetness, truthful of speech and possessed of extra ordinary strength, is benevolent to all, delightfully charming as the moon, that tiger among men, as mighty as an Elephant in rut, that great car warrior, will surely adorn the woods, while roaming through them.
vrm.2.51 While Lakshmana son of Dasaratha, who was concerned with the welfare of the people was thus speaking the truth out of his affection for his elder brother Rama, Guha, overcome with agony and oppressed with adversity shed tears like an Elephant tormented with fever.
vrm.2.55 Seetha who was walking in the middle of both of them was like an auspicious female Elephant in the middle of two Elephants.
vrm.2.58 Then, Sumantra, who joined his palms in reverence, approached the monarch who was repenting about Rama alone, filled with pain and sorrow, advanced in age, greatly anguished, sighing like a newly caught Elephant and reflecting on something as a sick Elephant.
vrm.2.60 Seetha who stays in the forest, takes refuge in the arms of Rama and hence does not give Herself to fear, even by seeing an Elephant or a lion or a tiger.
vrm.2.63 "Without my senses under control and with an intent to kill there a wild Buffalo or an Elephant or any other wild animal coming in the night at that place for the purpose of drinking water, I was ready with my bow at a solitary place.
vrm.2.63 "Meanwhile, in that darkness and not within the react of the eye, I heard the sound of a pitcher being filled up, the sound of which appeared like that of an Elephant.
vrm.2.63 "With an intent to hit that Elephant, I drew out a shining arrow resembling a serpent, targeted towards the direction sound and discharged it.
vrm.2.64 O, venerable sage! Wearing a bow in hand, I came to the bank of Sarayu River with an intent to kill an Elephant arrived to a ford for drinking water or any other wild animal.
vrm.2.64 Guessing it as an Elephant, I killed it with an arrow.
vrm.2.64 O, honorable sage! With a desire to kill an Elephant by targeting the sound, I released an iron arrow, and thus your son was killed hit Approaching as per his request, closer to him who was suffering from pain, I took out the arrow soon from his vital part.
vrm.2.65 Then, those beautiful women miserably cried loudly with their voice, like female Elephants crying when their group leader an Elephant was removed from their place in the forest.
vrm.2.65 While the king was deceased, all the women saw Kausalya who fell on the floor appearing as a female Elephant, which was killed and felled on the ground.
vrm.2.69 He was seen by me, as he was floating in that pond defiled with cow dung, drinking an oil through his hollowed palms and laughing again and again Thereafter, having eaten cooked rice mixed with gingelly seeds repeatedly, with his head bent down and with his whole body smeared with oil, he plunged into the oil itself I saw in the dream, the ocean dry up, the moon fall on the ground, the earth molested as if covered by darkness, a tusk of an Elephant on which the monarch rode broken to pieces, a blazing fire suddenly extinguished, the earth riven, the various trees dry up, and the mountains whirl up into a mist.

Arise,arise! Why are you lying down? Gentlemen, like you, respected in the assembly of men, do not grieve indeed.
vrm.2.72 That high soled king, who was excellent in understanding the Universal spirit, departed to the world, crying O, Rama, O, Sita, O, Lakshmana! Your father spoke the following last words also, when he was abandoned by the operation of time like a huge Elephant surrendered into a trap.
vrm.2.74 As an Elephant in a forest pricked with a javelin and a goad and as a hissing serpent, Bharata was enraged and fell on the ground.
vrm.2.87 That gentle, extremely courageous and the mighty armed young prince, whose shoulders resembled a lion s his large eyes opening like a flowering lotus and having pleasing appearance, momentarily sighed and in his extreme anguish, sank to the ground suddenly like an Elephant that has been wounded in the heart with goads.
vrm.2.91 The Elephant keeper did not recognise his Elephant.
vrm.2.94 "This mountain resembles an Elephant with ichors flowing from its forehead, as from its crevices, springs and cascades flow here and there.
vrm.2.96 "Let Kaikeyi, who is craving for the kingdom see, with great sorrow, her son slain by me today in battle, as a tree is crushed down by an Elephant.
vrm.2.97 "Here is that colossal Elephant who is moving at the head of the army called Shatrunjaya, the aged companion of our sagacious father.
vrm.2.99 All those dwellers in the woods, seeing those princes resembling leaders of Elephant herbs meeting together there in that great forest, losing their cheerfulness, began to shed tears.
vrm.2.100 "I hope you preserve the City of Ayodhya, furnished with everything and flourishing, that was formerly inhabited by our heroic ancestors, O my dear brother, that is worthy of its name, with its fortified gates, its Elephant Horses and chariots that fill it, with its brahmins, warriors and merchants in thousands, ever engaged in their respective duties, with its noble citizens self controlled and full of energy, with its palaces in various shapes and the learned who abound there.
vrm.2.101 Rama embraced his brother Bharata, who sighed again and again like an Elephant in rut, and spoke as follows: "How should a man of noble birth, rich in Sattva goodness, dignified and who has observed sacred vows like myself, commit sin for the sake of a mere kingdom?"
vrm.2.103 Seeing Rama lying on the earth, has the lord of the earth, like an Elephant crushed by a land slide on a bank where he was sleeping, those brother along with Seetha approached him from all sides and weepingly sprinkled water on him.
vrm.2.112 The valiant Bharata, who knew righteousness worshipped those sandals which were well decorated made a circumambulation to Rama and kept the sandals on the head of an excellent Elephant.
vrm.3.2 He skewered three Lions, four Tigers, two wolves, ten spotted deer, and a big head of an Elephant with tusks and fouled with fat on an iron spear, and he is yelling with his deafening voice.

When shall I consume his body flowing with blood, by the blazing arrows released from my bow, as flaming torches destroy an Elephant? Endowed with a huge army, I shall eclipse the aforesaid army of Rama,
vrm.6.28 As for that Vanara who you see there, resembling an intoxicated Elephant, who in strength and fury is able to churn up the ocean itself, it is he who came to Lanka to find Seetha and spy on you, O, Lord! See that Vanara, who was seen earlier and who appears here again.
vrm.6.30 Here too is the virtuous Lakshmana, resembling the most excellent Elephant among Elephants, in the path of whose arrows, even Indra himself could not survive Sweta and Jyotimukha, the sons of the sun god, a Vanara called Hemakuta, another son of Varuna, Nila the son of Visvakarma the strong and the best of Vanaras, as well as that mighty and swift Durdhara the son of Vasus are all here.

vrm.6.67 Kumbhakarna, when climbed upon by the Vanaras, was enraged and shook them off with violence, as a vicious Elephant would shake off its mahout.
vrm.6.67 Rama saw the angry Kumbhakarna, chasing all, like the mythical Elephant guarding one of the quarters, searching for the Vanaras, enraged as he was and surrounded by the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.69 Thereupon, Mahodara mounted an Elephant called Sudarshana, like unto a dark cloud and born in Airavata race.

vrm.6.70 Pulling out a tusk of that Elephant in battle, the mighty Angada ran towards Devantaka quickly and struck him.
vrm.6.70 Again mounting an Elephant resembling a mountain, as the sun mounting Mandara Mountain, that enraged Mahodara on his part, caused rain of arrows to fall quickly on Neela, like rumbling cloud with a circle of lightning, showers rain on a mountain.
vrm.6.70 That Mahodara, then shattered by the fall of that mountain and crushed by that large Elephant too, lost his life and fell down on the earth like a mountain struck by a thunderbolt.
vrm.6.70 Then, the enraged Hanuma on his part, bouncing up, tore asunder with his nails, Trishiras Horse, as a lion tears asunder a large Elephant.
vrm.6.71 This arrow looking like a serpent will drink your blood as a lion drinks the blood of an Elephant.
vrm.6.71 Struck in battle by Atikaya in his chest, Lakshmana oozed out blood severely, like the fluid exuding from a rutting Elephant.

vrm.6.75 There, seeing a frightened Elephant, a Horse turned back with an alarm.
vrm.6.76 With five steel arrows and with three other sharp edged arrows, Kumbha pierced that Angada advancing towards him, as on would pierce an Elephant with goads.
vrm.6.76 Seeing Angada the Vanara chief rushing upon him, Kumbha pierced his brows with his brows with his arrows, as an Elephant would be struck with flaming torches.
vrm.6.76 Seeing those troops of Vanaras being tormented by a flood of arrows, Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, keeping Angada his brothers son in the rear, rushed headlong towards Kumbha in the battle, as a swift lion would bounce upon an Elephant walking along the slopes of a mountain.

vrm.6.89 Surrounded by those Rakshasas, Vibhishana shone like an Elephant in the midst of proud young tuskers.
vrm.6.95 "Like an Elephant, today I will destroy ponds in the form of troops of Vanaras shining like the filaments of lotus, with their faces resembling full blown lotuses.
vrm.6.96 While those Rakshasas, thus defeated by Sugreeva, falling on the floor and then roaring, get diminished in number from all sides, the indomitable Virupaksha the Rakshasa, holding a bow, pronouncing his name by himself, descended from his chariot and mounted the back of an Elephant.
vrm.6.96 That mighty Virupaksha, mounting that Elephant, then roared a terrific noise and rushed towards the Vanaras.
vrm.6.96 Uplifting a tree and coming near that huge Elephant, the valiant Sugreeva, a thorough fighter, struck it on its face.
vrm.6.96 That huge Elephant, struck with the blow of Sugreeva, receded to a distance of four yards, sank down and roared too.
vrm.6.96 Descending quickly from his wounded Elephant, that valiant Rakshasa then seizing hold of his sword from a shield made of a bull s hide and advancing in rapid paces, facing towards Sugreeva his enemy, approached him, who stood firm, threatening him as it were.

vrm.6.109 "With sharpness for its tusks, the line of ancestors for its back bone, anger for its lower parts and graciousness for its proboscis, the Elephant in rut in the shape of Ravana is lying asleep on the ground, its body having been overthrown by a lion in the shape of Rama.
vrm.6.115 Hearing that unpalatable speech of her beloved husband, Seetha who used to hear pleasing words alone, was very much trembled for long, like a creeper attacked by the proboscis of an Elephant and thereupon shed tears.
vrm.6.126 "They cast him, who rushed with uplifted arms towards them, into a pit, turning his head bent low, and who was emitting a loud cry, like an Elephant.
vrm.6.128 Thereupon, Sugreeva, the foremost of Vanaras, possessing a great splendor, mounted an Elephant named Shatrunjaya, looking like a mountain.
