vrm.1.23 "There the body of Kamadeva is evanesced when that great soul Shiva burnt it down, and by the anger of that god of Gods Shiva, Kamadeva is rendered as a bodiless entity.
vrm.1.29 Oh, all pervading god Vishnu, Bali the son of Virochana is conducting an unsurpassed Vedic ritual, before the completion of which our own mission, say the task of Gods, is to be achieved completely.
vrm.1.29 As such, oh, Vishnu, you may effectuate the most suitable merited deed for the welfare of Gods on resorting to your illusory power, Vishnu Maya, and on assuming the form of a dwarf to deal with Emperor Bali.
vrm.1.29 Thus Gods appealed to Vishnu.
vrm.1.29 On hearing the word of Vishnu sage Kaashyapa, the son of Sage Marichi said, "oh, god the accorder of boons, as you are pleased with us it will be apt of you to bestow the boon besought by Lady Aditi and the Gods, oh, lord with lofty vows, for which boon I am also supplicating to you, following them.
vrm.1.29 a Oh, god, oh, sinless one, you may please attain the sonship of Lady Aditi and myself, oh, dispenser of Rakshasas, it will be apt of you to render help to Gods who are agonised in the anguish owing to the predominance of Emperor Bali, by becoming the younger brother of Indra.
vrm.1.29 b, Oh, god of Gods, as the works of my austerities are accomplished here, by your grace this hermitage will be renowned by the name Siddha ashram, Hermitage of Accomplishment, hence oh god, arise from here to become my son.
vrm.1.31 "Oh, best one among men, in early times indeed Gods gave that awesome bow which has an unimaginable power and which is superbly incandescent in wars to an erstwhile king of Mithila in a congregation of a Vedic ritual.
vrm.1.31 Gods" cannot capably lift it to string Gandharva s, no asura s, no Rakshasas, no and for human beings, not in any way.
vrm.1.31 "Once Devaraata, the grandparent of the present king Janaka of Mithila, conducted a Vedic ritual and he indeed prayed only for this supreme bow with a best grip handle as the fruit of that ritual from all of the Gods and oh, tigerly man Rama, he got the same from them.
vrm.1.33 "On leaving those girls, oh, Rama, that king whose valour matches that of Gods and who is an expert in thinking strategies started to think with his ministers on the topics like, as to how his daughters are to be espoused to, to which country they are to be sent, at which time marriage shall happen, and to which matching bridegroom the marriage is to be proposed, and so on.
vrm.1.33 "As with the tradition of marriage king Brahmadatta who vies with lord of Gods, namely Indra, in succession took the palm of each of the hundred girls into his palm.
vrm.1.35 After that, on enkindling the ritual fire they have also offered fire oblations into it for Gods.
vrm.1.36 b, c, "All the Gods headed by Brahma have then started to ponder, is there anybody who can inevitably sustain that being which emerges from this goddess Uma after this prolonged yogic act of copulation with Shiva? This being the worry of all Gods they have prepared for action.
vrm.1.36 b, a "All of the Gods on approaching and paying their deference to Shiva spoke this to him, oh, God of Gods, oh, one who is interested in the welfare of these worlds, oh, Great God, considering the supplication of all Gods it will be apt of you to bestow grace.
vrm.1.36 So said Gods to Shiva.
vrm.1.36 "On listening the words of Gods that Rarefied God of Universe, namely Shiva said, so be it, and further spoke this to all of the Gods, indeed.
vrm.1.36 But that part which has already stirred up from its place is irrestrainable, as such, oh Gods of eminence, you tell me who can contain that part of the unexcelled potence.
vrm.1.36 So said Shiva to Gods.
vrm.1.36 "Thus spoken by Shiva, then the Gods in reply spoke to him whose banner is Divine Bull, namely Shiva, that part of the potence which has already stirred up, the earth indeed endures that now.
vrm.1.36 "Thus said by the Gods that Yogi of par excellence and the God of Gods, Shiva, discharged his refulgent semen with which the earth together with its mountains and forests is overspread.
vrm.1.36 "Thereby the Gods in their turn said even to Agni, you enter the great potence of Rudra along with Maruts, lest that potence may annihilate the earth and earthlings, because you can consume anything that comes in touch with you.
vrm.1.36 a "Later on, the Gods together with the assemblages of sages are well pleased at heart as it has happened according to their prayer, thereby they fulsomely adored Shiva and even Uma.
vrm.1.36 and on saying this way to all of the Gods she also gave a curse to the earth.
vrm.1.36 "That God of Gods Shiva becoming ill at ease to look at all of the distressed Gods, equally feeling small to convince his consort Uma, he has started to journey towards the western quarter which is ruled by Rain god.
vrm.1.36 "On going to the northern side of Himalayan Mountains, that God of Gods, Shiva settled down in ascesis along with his consort Uma on the peak of a mountain emerged from Himalayas.
vrm.1.37 So said Brahma to all the Gods.
vrm.1.37 "On hearing those words of Brahma, oh, Rama, the delight of Raghu s dynasty, all the Gods have praisefully worshipped him, as their ends are achieved at the bidding fair of Brahma.
vrm.1.37 "On going to that supreme Mountain Kailasa, oh, Rama, which is heaped up with many ores, all of those Gods have assigned the Agni to father a son.
vrm.1.37 Oh, Agni, you please coordinate the mission of Gods, oh, great resplendent god of Fire, you may release the potence of Shiva, which you have contained so far, in the daughter of King of Mountains, namely River Ganga.
vrm.1.37 Thus, all Gods have requested the Agni.
vrm.1.37 "On assuring the Gods that he will do his best, the Agni approached Ganga entreating, Oh, Goddess Ganga, you verily bear pregnancy with the potence of Shiva, since this is the select process of all the Gods.
vrm.1.37 River" Ganga then spoke this to the Agni who is in the lead of all Gods, oh, god, I am incapable to bear up the rampant fervour of yours, and while being burnt with the fire of god Shiva compounded with that of yours my life force is very highly tortured.
vrm.1.37 a "He who consumes fire oblations on behalf of all the Gods, that Agni seeing the miserable condition of River Ganga then spoke this to her, you may lay away that embryo here at the side of Himalayan Mountains.
vrm.1.37 "All the Gods have then said, this boy will be renowned in all the three world as Kaartikeya, as Krittika stars have suckled him, with any doubt.
vrm.1.37 "On hearing that blessing of Gods Krittika stars gave a wash to that excellently auspicious boy who is radiant like fire, and who slid down from the secretion of the womb of Ganga.
vrm.1.37 "And Gods called that boy, oh, Rama of Kakutstha, whose glow is like that of flaring fire and who is ambidextrous as Skanda for he slid down from the secretions of a womb.
vrm.1.39 "All the Gods along with Gandharva s, Asura s, and Uragas who are distraught at heart for the plight of earth have approached the Forefather, Brahma.
vrm.1.39 "They the Gods who are very highly scared, and who are chap fallen, then spoke this sentence to the great souled Forefather Brahma on gaining his grace.
vrm.1.39 Thus all the Gods have appealed to Brahma.
vrm.1.40 "On hearing the words of Gods, the esteemed Forefather Brahma spoke to them, who are very highly scared, and bewildered by the might of Sagara s sons for they are effectuating the end of all beings.
vrm.1.40 So said Brahma to Gods.
vrm.1.40 "On hearing the words of the Forefather Brahma all the thirty three Gods went away with utmost satisfaction, as they have came.
vrm.1.42 b, Forefather" Brahma then arrived along with assemblages of Gods, and spoke this way to the great souled Bhagiratha who is deep in the practise of ascesis.
vrm.1.43 "When the god of Gods Brahma left from there Bhagiratha stood on the tip of his big toe praying for the mercy of Lord Shiva for one year, while that tip of his big toe pressurised the earth.
vrm.1.43 b, a "Later, they the Gods, sages, Gandharva s, Yaksha s, and the assemblages of Siddha s have then seen there the swoop of Ganga in that way from heaven to earth, with curiosity.
vrm.1.43 b, a "Some of the Gods with Aircrafts that are like cities in their shape and size, and some with Horses that are prancing, and some with best Elephants that are staggering, at the very sight of plunging Ganga, have entered the firmament at that place.
vrm.1.43 "The Gods whose animation is unlimited, and who are anxious to see the plunge of Ganga, have come together in assemblages, which plunge is a highest marvel in the universe by a better degree of her illimitable animation than that of Gods who came to see, and even benignant to the world in according water and salving souls, which those Gods cannot do.
vrm.1.43 b, a "The glitter of the ornaments of hosts of Gods who are in stampede, made the cloudless sky to shine as if it is with a hundred of suns.
vrm.1.43 b, a "Thereupon, the Gods along with Gandharva s and sages at that extremely marvellous feat of Sage Jahnu are highly astounded, and they then started to worship that ablest human and great souled sage Jahnu, and even deigned for the daughterhood of Ganga to that high souled sage Jahnu.
vrm.1.44 Oh, tigerly man Bhagiratha, the sixty thousands sons of great souled Sagara have crossed over the sea of mortality, and on a par with the Gods they have also transited to heaven.
vrm.1.44 As long as the water of the ocean abides in the world, oh, king, so long the sons of Sagara will abide in heaven like Gods.
vrm.1.44 "On saying in this way, the forefather of all the worlds, and the great glorious lord of all Gods, namely Brahma, went away to his empyrean world as he has came.
vrm.1.44 "This legend is conducive to achieve prosperity, fame, longevity, progeny and even heaven, and he who narrates this legend to others, whether he is from Brahmans or from Kshatriya s, or for that matter of fact from any other class, his Pitris will be satisfied, and Gods too will be gladdened.
vrm.1.45 "This way while the Gods are praying Mahadeva, namely Shiva, then handling his disc and conch shell Vishnu has also revealed himself at that place.
vrm.1.45 By virtue of your position as the foremost god among Gods, oh, omnicompetent god Shiva, you please accept this poison applying yourself to that position of foremost god, and deeming this poison, as a foremost oblation to your godhood.
vrm.1.45 "Saying so Vishnu, the best one among Gods, has disappeared then and there only.
vrm.1.45 And on observing the scare of Gods and also on paying heed to the words of the Wielder of Bow called Shaaranga, namely Vishnu, god Shiva gulped that lethal poison Haalahala, as if it is Amrita.
vrm.1.45 a "The god of Gods Hara then left for his abode Kailasa parting with other Gods, and oh, Rama, the joy of Raghu s dynasty, the Gods and non Gods have continued to churn the Milky Ocean.
vrm.1.45 b, a "Now the loftiest mountain that is being used as stirrer, namely Mountain Mandara, has caved into the netherworld, thereby the Gods along with Gandharva s have prayed to Madhusuudana, the other name of Vishnu.
vrm.1.45 So prayed Gods to Vishnu.
vrm.1.45 "Hearing the prayer of Gods Vishnu, Hrishikesha, adopting the form a tortoise and positioning the stirring Mountain Mandara on that tortoiseshell, he lay recumbent at the bottom of Milky Ocean as a base to the stirrer.
vrm.1.45 b, a Keshava" then reached out his hand and grasped the mountain top as he is the Cosmic Soul, and thus staying amid Gods that Supreme Person Vishnu participated in churning the ocean by holding the stirring mountain upright.
vrm.1.45 "Thereby the sons of Diti are called a suraa s, and the sons of Aditi are called Sura s, and Gods are delighted and rejoiced on espousing Vaaruni.
vrm.1.45 "Then a best Horse called Uchaisravas has emerged, oh, Rama, the best among men, and then a gem of a jewel, called Kaustubha, and like that Amrita, the Supreme Ambrosial elixir of Gods, have also emerged.
vrm.1.45 "In this horrendous war between the progeny of Diti, namely Daityas, and the progeny of Aditi, namely Adityas, the sons of Aditi being Gods, have altogether massacred the sons of Diti.
vrm.1.46 "Oh, best one among Gods, Indra, on my prayer your high souled father Sage Kaashyapa bestowed this boon on me for a son, which materialises at the end of thousand years, and only ten more years are to slip by.
vrm.1.47 Oh, Indra, the eliminator of Bali, this foetus of mine is sliced into seven segments owing to my own misdeed, oh, ruler of Gods, Indra, indeed there is no iniquity of yours in this matter.
vrm.1.47 Oh, chief of Gods, Indra, let four of my sons permeate four directions according to time and at your command, let safety betide you, and let them be renowned verily by the name given by you as Marut, because you have coaxed the crying fragments of foetus saying, maa ruda, maa ruda, do not cry, do not cry.
vrm.1.47 All this will happen as you have said, undoubtedly, and your offspring, the Maruts, would be pervading in the forms of Gods, you be safe.
vrm.1.48 "These two youngsters, oh, sage, let safety betide you, striding like audacious Elephants and arrogant Lions, bearing a similitude to adventurous Tigers and adamantine bulls, and wielding quivers, swords, and bows, are valorous with their valour matching that of Vishnu, and with their eyes broad like lotus petals and with youthfulness in the offing they look like the exceptionally beautiful twin Gods, Ashwin brothers, by their physique.
vrm.1.48 How these two have footslogged and chanced here as though immortals have chanced on earth from the abode of Gods at their pleasure? What for they have come here, and whose scions are they? "These two best ones among men are identical to one another by their bodily proportion, facial language, and by bodily gestures, and with their presence they refurbish this province like the Moon and Sun brightening the firmament.
vrm.1.48 "Oh, the best one among men Rama, this hermitage with a heavenly glisten, and highly hallowed even by Gods, once belonged to the great souled sage Gautama.
vrm.1.48 "Oh, Rama, the legatee of Raghu, though knowing him as the Thousand eyed Indra in the guise of her husband Gautama, she is inclined to have intercourse ill advisedly, only to satisfy the impassion of the King of Gods.
vrm.1.48 "She felt fulfilled in her heart of hearts and then she said this to that best god Indra, I am gratified in complying with your wish, oh, best of Gods, get going oh, lord, from here quickly, oh, ruler of Gods, always safeguard yourself and me from Sage Gautama.
vrm.1.48 Indra" has then seen the great saint Gautama, an unassailable sage either for Gods or for Rakshasas owing to his ascetic prowess, though thoroughly wet with the water of pious river he is luminous like ritual fire, and a foremost saint among all saints who just entered the hermitage carrying ritual firewood and sacred grass.
vrm.1.48 b, a "On seeing the sage the lord of Gods Indra is scared and became dreary faced.
vrm.1.49 "The emasculated Indra then with panicked eyes spoke to Gods, Siddha s, Gandharva s, and Carana s, keeping Agni as their helms god.
vrm.1.49 I have Indeed incited fury in that noble souled Sage Gautama by effectuating hindrance in his asceticism, but I have accomplished a task of Gods.
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 Thus Indra spoke to all Gods.
vrm.1.49 "On hearing the words of Agni, the Agni, the Pitris Gods who gathered to collect their share of offering have extricated that Ram s Testes, which is not yet sacrificed but tethered to a sacrificial post, and offered them to the Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.1.49 She whose splendour is brightened by her ascesis, at whom it is impossible to raise an eye for a stare either for Gods, or for Rakshasas, or for the worldly beings on coming close to her, whom the Creator has contrived with careful contemplation as an angelic and a completely phantasmal entity, who is like the befogged and beclouded moonshine of a full moon as she is hitherto enshrouded by the dried up leaves and dust, who is like an unwatchable sunshine mirrored in and glowing from the midst of water, for she is hitherto in the midst of denounce, and whose limbs are like the tongues of a flaring fire around which fumes are cloaking, as she is hitherto practising an utmost ascesis subsisting on air alone, which ascesis alone made her like a flaring Ritual Fir, and Rama has seen such a highly glorious Ahalya.
vrm.1.49 Gods have collectively reverenced her, whose limbs are depurated by the asset of her ascesis which is performed as a devotee of Gautama remaining in his directives, saying Gracious! Goodness!
vrm.1.50 b, a Today" my Vedic ritual is enriched with your advent, whereby I deem that Gods have fructified the ritual.
vrm.1.50 b, a "Oh, Brahma sage, the scholarly Ritvik s conducting my Vedic ritual are saying that only twelve more days are remaining to complete the observation of ritual pledge, and then oh, Kaushika, it will be apt of you to see the Gods who arrive at the conclusion of this Vedic ritual expecting their due in the ritual.
vrm.1.50 b, a "These two youngsters, oh, sage, let safety betide you, striding like audacious Elephants and arrogant Lions, bearing a similitude to adventurous Tigers and adamantine bulls, and wielding quivers, swords, and bows, are valorous with their valour matching that of Vishnu, and with their eyes broad like lotus petals and with youthfulness in the offing they look like the exceptionally beautiful twin Gods, Ashwin brothers, by their physique.
vrm.1.50 How these two have footslogged and chanced here as though immortals have chanced on earth from the abode of Gods at their pleasure? What for they have come here, and whose scions are they? b, "Oh, great saint, whose sons are these two valiant youngsters who are brandishing best weapons? They are embellishing this province as the Sun and Moon doeth the sky.
vrm.1.53 Oblations to Gods or Pitris, enkindling of Ritual fire, religious sacrifices, Homa s, the sacred rituals conducted as Darsha, Paurnamaasi, all are dependent on her.
vrm.1.55 "After a long lost time, Shiva, the God of Gods whose flag bears the sign of Holy Bull, has shown himself to that great saint Vishvamitra, for He is a ready boon giver.
vrm.1.55 Oh, Exquisite God, whichever missile is there either with Gods, or fiends, Gandharva s, Yaksha s, and Rakshasas, let it dawn upon me.
vrm.1.55 For you alone are the God of Gods your blessings alone can fulfil my aspiration.
vrm.1.55 a So be it! On sanctifying Vishvamitra and his aspiration thus, the God of Gods, Shiva disappeared.
vrm.1.55 Vishvamitra" who is already a mightier Kshatriya, now on acquiring missiles from the God of Gods, Shiva, will he not come forth paired up with mightiest conceit, and then will not his conceitedness be plethoric like a plethoric ocean? "By vitality Vishvamitra is like an ocean with rough riptide on a Full Moon day, and oh, Rama, he deemed that sagaciously mighty sage Vashishta is now dead.
vrm.1.56 Vishvamitra, the son of Gaadhi then rancorously fusilladed the missiles regulated by Gods like Varuna, Rudra, Indra, Pasupata, and even a missile which is projectile through grass blade called Ishiika.
vrm.1.56 "He also launched the missiles called Drainer and Ripper, and the highly unconquerable Thunderbolt, even the lassos of Brahma, Time and Rain Gods.
vrm.1.56 "When Vishvamitra brandished and set up Brahma missile for launching, seeing it all the Gods keeping the Agni at their vanguard, Devarshis, Uragas along with Gandharva s are perplexed, and the triad of worlds itself is perturbed.
vrm.1.56 "When that great resplendent Vashishta is spoken thus by saints and Gods he composed himself, and then that estranged Vishvamitra spoke this to himself with heavy suspiration.
vrm.1.57 saying so that great resplendent Brahma, the Supreme Ruler of the Worlds, went away to his Abode of Brahma, while the Gods in Brahma s convoy went to Indra s Heaven.
vrm.1.57 b, a Even though I have practised a very high ascesis, the Gods together with the observances of hermits are recognising me just as a kingly sage.
vrm.1.57 Therefore, next to Vashishta you are all the next best Gods to me.
vrm.1.58 a I have propitiated Gods with many kinds of Vedic rituals.
vrm.1.59 How then the Gods or sages can partake of the remnants of oblations in that ritual assembly, especially that of a profaner? Thus, the sons of Vashishta exclaimed.
vrm.1.60 He came under my shelter as he wishes to win over the heaven of Gods with his own mortal body.
vrm.1.60 b You all scholars have to conduct Vedic ritual along with in such a way as to how Trishnaku reaches the heaven of Gods.
vrm.1.60 "After a long time that highly ascetical Vishvamitra welcomed all the Gods to receive their allotted oblations in that ritual.
vrm.1.60 b, a "Then all of the Gods who are invited to partake of the oblation have not come forward to receive their allotments, and then the great saint Vishvamitra, obsessive with fury, furiously lifted up a wooden oblational scoop, and said this to Trishanku.
vrm.1.60 b, a "On seeing Trishanku s entry into the realm of heaven, Indra, the subjugator of Paka, spoke this sentence together with all the multitudes of Gods.
vrm.1.60 "On replicating the stereotyped stocks of other galaxies and stars, and while fury continued to blemish him Vishvamitra said, I will now clone an alternative Indra, or let that realm created by me remain without any Indra, and when he is about to proceed to clone even Gods in his wrath, the Gods are startled.
vrm.1.60 b, "The Gods are highly startled at Vishvamitra s creation, and they along with Rakshasas and with observances of hermits addressed the great souled Vishvamitra with placatory words.
vrm.1.60 So said Gods to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.60 "On hearing that sentence of those Gods, the eminent saint Kaushika spoke this highly laudable sentence to all of the Gods.
vrm.1.60 It will be apt of you all Gods to accede to this.
vrm.1.60 So said Vishvamitra to Gods.
vrm.1.60 So said Gods to Vishvamitra in deterring his further cloning of a simulative Universe.
vrm.1.60 b, a "Even the benign souled Vishvamitra, when reverenced by all Gods, that great resplendent sage without stirring himself from among the sages said to all Gods, Agreed!
vrm.1.60 "Oh, best one among men Rama, later at the end of that ritual great souled Gods and ascetically wealthy sages went away as they have come.
vrm.1.62 As a result, Shunashepa will have protectors, Vedic ritual will be unimpeded, Gods will be oblated, and my word too will be actualised.
vrm.1.62 "When Shunashepa is tied to ritual post he immensely pleased two Gods, namely Indra and Upendra as well, with those two hymns he got from Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 "When thousand years are completed in ascesis and when that great saint Vishvamitra took a bath of solemnity, all the Gods have come forward wishing to accord the fruit of that ascesis to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 b, a "Oh, Rama, while he reverently performed an unspeakable ascesis for a thousand years on the northern mountain, namely Himalayas, then fear occurred to Gods.
vrm.1.63 "All Gods coming together with assemblages of sages have approached Brahma and conveyed that, this Vishvamitra, the son of Kushika, may duly be given the epithet of Maharshi, Exalted Sage.
vrm.1.63 b, a "On listening the advice of Gods, Brahma, the Grandparent of all the worlds, spoke these pleasant words to the ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 "While the Gods who came here along with Brahma have returned, that great sage Vishvamitra undertook another round of ascesis by standing in levitation, upraising his arms, and subsisting on air alone.
vrm.1.63 b, "While that great saint is undertaking fervent ascesis it has become a very high burning problem to Gods and even to Indra.
vrm.1.64 Oh, Rambha, now you have to undertake this very great task of Gods in enchanting Vishvamitra with a craving caused by lust, for lusting after you.
vrm.1.64 "Oh, Rama, when that Apsara is spoken thus by the Thousand eyed Indra, she diffidently said to that chief of Gods while adjoining her palms suppliantly.
vrm.1.64 Oh, chief of Gods, Indra, that great saint Vishvamitra is a dangerous one and undoubtedly he releases his deadly anger on me.
vrm.1.65 As to how the End Time Fire entirely blazed away the triad of worlds previously, now this sage may do likewise, hence whatever is his predilection that may be given to him, even if he wants to become the potentate on the realm of Gods.
vrm.1.65 Thus, all Gods appealed to Brahma b, a "Then all the assemblages of Gods keeping the Grandparent Brahma in their forefront appeared before that great souled Vishvamitra and said this harmonious word.
vrm.1.65 Oh, Gods, he who is the outstanding one among the geniuses of kingcraft, and among the scholars of Veda s as well, even that Vashishta, the brainchild of Brahma, shall acknowledge me in this way as Brahma sage.
vrm.1.65 Oh, the best Gods, you may take leave if you can effectuate this ultimate yearning of mine.
vrm.1.65 Thus Vishvamitra requested the Gods.
vrm.1.65 b, "Then the best one among meditators Vashishta has come over there when the Gods besought him to come, and he made friendship with Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.65 "No doubt, you are a Brahma sage and everything will accrue to you in accordance with the sublimity of this sageship, and when Vashishta said so to Vishvamitra, all the Gods have gone away as they have come.
vrm.1.66 Once, during the devastation of the Vedic ritual of Daksha Prajapati, the mettlesome god Rudra, rancorously outstretching the bowstring of this bow, said this to all Gods, superciliously.
vrm.1.66 Oh, Gods, whereby you have not apportioned my portion of oblations in Vedic ritual s, as I am also the desirer of such portion, thereby I will shred the highly revered heads of yours with this bow.
vrm.1.66 So said Shiva to Gods.
vrm.1.66 Then, oh, best saint Vishvamitra, all Gods are truly dismayed, and on their supplicating, Bhava, namely Shiva, the God of Gods is gladdened.
vrm.1.66 And that Sublime Soul Shiva gladly gave that bow to all of the great souled Gods, and oh, godly saint, then those great souled Gods gave this gem of a bow of Shiva, the God of Gods, to our ancestor Devaraata, for
vrm.1.66 Then elapsed is an year and in anyway the possessions for livelihood went into a decline, oh, eminent sage, thereby I am highly anguished b, a Then I have assuaged the assemblages of Gods by my ascesis and Gods are also highly gladdened and gave me fourfold forces.
vrm.1.67 None in all the assemblages of Gods, inclusive of demiGods,
vrm.1.69 a "Providentially bechanced is the arrival of this great resplendent and godly sage Vashishta, who arrived here with all of these eminent Brahmans, like Indra himself with all Gods.
vrm.1.73 b, a Then there occurred great flower showers from firmament, while sages and Gods staying in firmament have exclaimed, nice.
vrm.1.75 "These are the two strong and sturdy unsurpassed longbows, well designed by Gods and well crafted by Vishvakarma, the Divine Architect, and these are very important among all bows and well worshipped by all worlds.
vrm.1.75 "Oh, best one among men, out of the two longbows Gods gave one to restive Tryamvaka, God Shiva for a combat with Tripura, and oh, Kakutstha, that bow alone is the annihilator of Tripura, the Rakshasa.
vrm.1.75 "This is the second one and the choicest Gods gave this to Vishnu, thereby this is named after Him as Vishnu s bow.
vrm.1.75 a "Once, all the Gods were asking the Grandparent, Brahma, as to who is powerful and who is less powerful among the blue throated Shiva and Vishnu.
vrm.1.75 but the Grandparent Brahma on inferring the intent of Gods started to create adversity among those two, Shiva and Vishnu, for the Grandparent is the best adherer of truthfulness, as truth cannot be demonstrated on hearsay evidence.
vrm.1.75 b, a "Then Gods along with the assemblages of sages and Carana s have come together and appealed to those two for appeasement in the matter of wielding authority, and then those two superior Gods, Shiva and Vishnu, went into a state of amity.
vrm.1.75 "On seeing the bow of Shiva rendered inert by the mettlesomeness of Vishnu, from then on the Gods along with the assemblages of sages deemed Vishnu to be the paramount.
vrm.1.76 Gods together with the assemblages of sages have come keeping the Grandparent Brahma at their fore, likewise the Gandharva s, Apsara s, Siddha s, Caarana s, Kinnara s, Yaksha s, sprites and reptilian beings have also come to see Rama who is now wielding the extraordinary longbow of Vishnu, and extremely amazing event that is going to ensue.
vrm.1.76 "I have realized your touch of nature as that of the Immutable Supreme Being, God of Gods, the Exterminator of the Madhu, namely Vishnu, by the touch of your handling that bow.
vrm.1.76 "All of these Gods who have come collectively are beholding you and your next move, for you are an unequalled one in you achievements and to whom there is no counter dueller in conflicts.
vrm.1.76 Then dissipated is the darkness in all the divisions and likewise in all the subdivisions of compass, and the Gods with the assemblages of sages extolled Rama, in whose hands the longbow is upraised.
vrm.1.77 b, a All of the brides and bridegrooms clad in silks promptly worshipped the Gods in sanctums to the benedictory chanting of Vedic hymns and Ritual fires, thus they shone forth like the tongues of Holy Fires of Vedic Altars.
vrm.1.77 When passionately conjugated with such a princess from the irreproachable king Janaka, Rama, the son of sagely king Dasharatha, has enthusiastically shone forth like the God of Gods and the Efficient Cause, namely Vishnu, when He is together with Goddess Lakshmi.
