VALMIKI RAMAYANA NOUN

Continued from Part 1

vrm.5.44 Seeing that work in vain, the powerful Hanuma of terrific prowess, uprooted a very large sal tree and whirled it around.
vrm.5.44 Seeing the mighty Hanuma, whirling around the sal tree, the exceedingly strong Jambumali discharged numerous arrows.
vrm.5.44 He splitted sal tree with four arrows and struck the arms of Hanuma with five arrows, in the chest with one arrow and in the space between the breast wit ten arrows.
vrm.5.44 Hanuma, with his body full of arrows, was highly enraged and taking the same iron rod as well as clasping it swiftly, whirled it around.
vrm.5.44 Spinning the iron rod with a great speed, Hanuma, richly endowed with strength and highly agitated, threw it on the broad chest of Jambumali.
vrm.5.44 Thus struck by Hanuma, the mighty Jambumali, with his limbs and ornaments crushed to powder, was instantly killed and fell dead on the ground.
vrm.5.45 Those sons of chief minister, wearing ornaments made of pure gold, rushed towards Hanuma, who was ready for battle and who stood on the archy gate way motionless.
vrm.5.45 Thus covered by those showers of arrows, Hanuma became invisible even as a mountain king is concealed by incessant showers.
vrm.5.45 Making a terrific roar and frightening that great army, the valiant Hanuma rushed on those Rakshasas.
vrm.5.45 That Hanuma, the annihilator of enemies, struck some with his palms, some with his feet and some others with his fists.
vrm.5.45 Hanuma crushed some with his chest and some others with his thighs.
vrm.5.45 Some fell down there itself on the ground, just by the roar made by Hanuma.
vrm.5.45 That heroic and mighty Hanuma having a terrible prowess, killing those arrogant Rakshasas and being desirous of a combat with the other Rakshasas, again reached that archy door way itself.
vrm.5.46 Virupaksha, Yupaksha, Durdhara the Rakshasa, Praghasa and Bhasakarna, all of them brave Rakshasas, skilled in strategy, eager to capture Hanuma and equal to the speed of wind in battle.
vrm.5.46 Thereafter, those valiant Rakshasas saw that Hanuma the great Vanara, encircled by his rays of splendour like a rising sun, shining, standing on the archy door way, possessing enormous energy, strong mental disposition and colossal strength.
vrm.5.46 Immediately on seeing that Hanuma of great intellect, of great swiftness and of a gigantic body, all those Rakshasas, stationed in all quarters, attacked him with their terrific weapons from every side.
vrm.5.46 Durdhara discharged five sharp and fierce steel arrows with a lustre of black lily petals and yellow tops to descend into Hanuma s head.
vrm.5.46 Pierced in the head by those fire arrows, Hanuma leapt roaring in the sky, making the roar reverberating in all directions.
vrm.5.46 Stretching his bow and throwing hundreds of sharp arrows, he attacked Hanuma.
vrm.5.46 Hanuma warded him off from showering the arrows on him in the sky, as the wind wards off a rainy cloud from raining at the end of a monsoon.
vrm.5.46 Thus afflicted by that Durdhara, Hanuma then emitted a roar once again and swiftly expanded his body.
vrm.5.46 Like a mass of lightning on a mountain, Hanuma instantaneously fell on Durdhara s chariot, by jumping up from far above with great speed.
vrm.5.46 Jumping up in the air all of a sudden those two Rakshasas struck in the chest with their clubs that long armed Hanuma standing in clear sky.
vrm.5.46 Striking down the swiftness of those violent Rakshasas, the mighty Hanuma whose prowess is equal to that of Garuda the eagle, again descended on to the ground.
vrm.5.46 Approaching a sala tree and uprooting it, that Hanuma the Vanara killed those two valiant Rakshasas.
vrm.5.46 Getting to know all those mighty three killed by Hanuma, Praghasa with a great alacrity, forcefully attacked Hanuma.
vrm.5.46 The two generals stood by the side of the illustrious Hanuma.
vrm.5.46 Praghasa pierced Hanuma with a sharp pointed spear and Bhasakarna attacked him with a dart.
vrm.5.46 With his limbs wounded by those two Rakshasas, that Hanuma with his body hair anointed by blood, became enraged, with his blaze similar to that of a rising sun.
vrm.5.46 Having plucked up the top of a mountain with its various animals serpents and trees, the heroic Hanuma the best among Vanaras, killed those two Rakshasas.
vrm.5.46 When those five army generals have been killed, Hanuma then destroyed that remaining army.
vrm.5.46 Like Indra the thousand eyed god destroying the Rakshasas, Hanuma destroyed the Horses by striking them with Horses, the Elephants with Elephants, the warriors with warriors and the chariots with chariots.
vrm.5.46 Like Yama the Time spirit waiting for the right moment for the destruction of the mortals, the heroic Hanuma, killing the eminent Rakshasas and the army generals with their troops and vehicles in the combat, waited for the right moment at the arch way.
vrm.5.47 Hearing and sustaining that the five army generals along with their followers and vehicles were disposed off by Hanuma, Ravana looked at Aksha, his son, violent in combat and who was inclined to fighting as well as sitting in front of him.
vrm.5.47 Aksha, filling the sky earth and its mountains with sounds of Horses Elephants and chariots, together with his army, approached the efficient Hanuma the great Vanara, standing at the archy door way.
vrm.5.47 Approaching that Hanuma, standing there readily to destroy mortals, similar to a fire that is to destroy the world, the yellow eyed Aksha was bewildered, born of a surprise and looked to him with a great esteem.
vrm.5.47 That Aksha, the mighty prince, assessing the swiftness of that high souled Hanuma and his prowess with regard to his adversaries as also his own strength, increased his body more and more like the sun when the frost is faded away.
vrm.5.47 Understanding Hanuma s prowess to be unrestrainable and stable in battle, that Aksha, exhibiting anger initially, became stable and mentally composed and incited Hanuma to battle by discharging three sharp arrows towards him.
vrm.5.47 Recognizing that Hanuma, as a haughty Vanara, after having gallantly conquered his adversaries and accustomed to fatigue, that Aksha, graspign the bow and arrows his hand, saw him with an excited mind.
vrm.5.47 Having a glden chain, a pair of armlets and charming ear rings, Aksha of a swift prowess, approached Hanuma.
vrm.5.47 Seeing that battle between Hanuma and Aksha, the earth uproared.
vrm.5.47 Then, that eminent Rakshasa, who correctly knew how to fix his gaze on the target, to fit an arrow to the bow and to discharge it, hurled on Hanuma s head, three arrows which were well painted, having golden shafts and feathers and which resembled venomous serpants.
vrm.5.47 Oozing the blood from his wound caused by those arrows descended into his head by Aksha, looking like the newly risen sun, his eyes bathed in blood rolling rapidly, Hanuma shone brightly like the sun surrounded by a circle of rays, having the arrows as its rays.
vrm.5.47 Seeing in the battle that Aksha the prince, with his marvellous weapons and picturesque bow, that Hanuma the excellent one among Sugreeva s counsellors, was rejoiced and with an inclination to fight, grew in size.
vrm.5.47 That Hanuma, endowed with strength and prowess, resembling the sun appearing on a peak of Mandara muntain and whose anger was increased, then burnt the prince Aksha along with his army and vehicles, by the rays of fire emnating from his eyes.
vrm.5.47 That Rakshasa in the form of a cloud, raining down arrows, then wielding a bow in the form of a rain bow, soon discharged arrows on Hanuma standing in the form of a mountain, like a cloud showering rain on a high mountain.
vrm.5.47 Seeing that Aksha the prince, possessing an impetuous valour, endowed with enhanced splendour strength and vigour with a capacity to move within the sky like a cloud, coming to the battle, Hanuma roared with joy.
vrm.5.47 Boastful of his valour in battle because of his childish attitude, Aksha wit an enhanced fury and red blood eyes, approached Hanuma who was incomparable in battle, as an Elephant approaching a well covered with heaps of straw.
vrm.5.47 As Aksha forcefully discharged his arrows, Hanuma roared a sound of thunder and bounced quickly to the sky assuming a terrible sight, stretching out his arms and thighs.
vrm.5.47 That strong and valiant Aksha, the foremost among the Rakshasas, and the best among car warriors, went chasing Hanuma who was flying upwards, difusing arrows like a cloud showering hail stones on a mountian.
vrm.5.47 That valiant Hanuma, whose swiftness was equal to the mind and possessing impetuous valour in battle, rushing forth like wind in the space between one arrow and another and thus escaping Aksha s arrows, moved in the path visited by wind the sky.
vrm.5.47 With a respectful faculty of sight, Hanuma saw that Aksha who was wielding his bow and readily inclined to fight, covering the entire sky with excellent arrows with various types of tops and became thoughful.
vrm.5.47 Then, the mighty armed Hanuma, who knew how to act under particular circumstances, roaring when pierced in the breast with shafts by the high souled heroic, Aksha, reflected on the prowess of his adversary in battle.
vrm.5.47 The valiant and te mighty Hanuma, reflecting thus about the swiftness of the adersary and determining his own couse of action, then acquired a course of action, then acquired a momentum and also made up his mind to kill him.
vrm.5.47 That Hanuma, the heroic son of wind, killed using the blows of his palm, those eight Horses posessing a great speed in the path of sky with alertness as also having a capacity to bear burden while turning to different directions.
vrm.5.47 Then, the great chariot of Aksha, thus struck by the palm and subdued by Hanuma the counsellor of Sugreeva, had its interior broken, its carriage pole loosened and its Horses dead and fallen from the sky to the ground.
vrm.5.47 Thereafter, Hanuma with his prowess equal to that of wind, approaching Aksha moving in the sky, which is often frequented by Garuda the eagle, the wind and Siddhas the ascetics endowed with supernatural powers, slowly grasped his feet firmly.
vrm.5.47 That Hanuma, with a prowess equal to that of wind god, his father, and the excellent one among Vanaras, spigning round Aksha like grasping a great serpent an eagle for a thousand times in the battle, hurled him down to the floor rapidly.
vrm.5.47 With his arms, thighs, hips and neck broken, blood dripping, his bones and eyes crushed, his joints displaced and his sinews shattered, that Rakshasa was killed by Hanuma.
vrm.5.47 Hanuma, having crushed him on the ground, created a great fear to Ravana.
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.5.47 Killing that Aksha, possessing a lustre equal to that of Jayanta the son of Indra and having his eyes resembling blood, the heroic Hanuma reached the same archy door way again, like Yama the lord of death expecting in a moment any mortal getting destroyed by him.
vrm.5.48 Filled with anger on his son Aksha having been killed by Hanuma, yet reconciling his mind, the high minded Ravana the king of Rakshasas for his part then instructed Indrajit his eldest son possessing the qualities of god as follows:
vrm.5.48 "Keeping in view your own strength and of the army, O the foremost among those employing missiles, exert yourself in such a way, that further destruction of our army may stop, the moment you, whose enemies have died, have arrived near Hanuma.
vrm.5.48 There is no limit to the strength of Hanuma the son of Vayu.
vrm.5.48 That Indrajit, the chariot warrior, best among the wielders of bow, skilled in the use of weapons and excellent among those proficient in the use of missiles, went swiftly in his chariot to where Hanuma was.
vrm.5.48 Hearing the rattling sound of Indrajit’s chariot and a twang of his bow, the heroic Hanuma became more thrilled with delight.
vrm.5.48 Indrajit, skilled in warfare, taking a very big bow with pointed arrows, went aiming towards Hanuma.
vrm.5.48 Seeing Indrajit coming swiftly with the chariot, Hanuma made a noise with great resonance and grew up his body speedily.
vrm.5.48 Those two warriors, Hanuma and Indrajit, possessing great velocity and a great strength as also fearless in combat, confronted in the battle like Indra and Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas who tightened hostility with each other.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma, of immeasurable strength, having expanded his body, aborted the swiftness of arrows of that Indrajit, the great chariot warrior, the wielder of a bow and well renowned in battle.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma wheeled about in the path of wind god, his father.
vrm.5.48 Hearing the rattling sound of the chariot and the sound of wooden tomtoms, kettledrums and war drums as also the sound of the bow string being plucked, Hanuma sprang up again.
vrm.5.48 Making the total target of Indrajit who was skilled in hitting his target useless, Hanuma the great Vanara swiftly wheeled about between the arrows.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma, the son of Vayu, again stayed in front of his arrows and stretching out his hands, sprang up.
vrm.5.48 Indrajit could not know the weakness of Hanuma, nor did Hanuma know the weakness of high minded Indrajit.
vrm.5.48 Keeping in view of that Vanara being incapable of being slain, Indrajit, Ravanas’ son then formed an idea as to how to resort to capture of that Hanuma the chief of Vanara warriors.
vrm.5.48 Indrajit, who knows the true nature of missiles, feeling certain that he was incapable of being killed, bound that Hanuma, the son of Vayu, by that presided over by Brahma the creator.
vrm.5.48 Fastened with the weapon discharged by the Rakshasa, Hanuma became motionless and fell down on the ground.
vrm.5.48 Realizing that he had been bound by a missile presided over by Brahma the Lord of creation that Hanuma failing to keep his swiftness, considered it to be a favour of Brahma the creator done to him.
vrm.5.48 Knowing it to be a missile presided over by Brahma the creator and consecrated by spells sacred to Brahma, the creator, Hanuma then recollected a boon got by Lord Brahma, the grand father of the entire creation.
vrm.5.48 Thinking of the potency of the missile and the grace of Brahma, the grandfather of the entire creation enjoyed by him, and thinking about his capacity to liberate from it which was going to alight on him after a while that Hanuma obeyed the command of Brahma the grand father of the entire creation.
vrm.5.48 That Hanuma, the destroyer of enemies and who acted after fully considering the pros and cons, ascertained his objective and stayed motionless.
vrm.5.48 Seeing that Hanuma, the destroyer of enemies falling motionless, the Rakshasas then tied him with plaited chords of hemp and bark of trees.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma approved of being forcibly bound and reviled by the enemies, with an assured feeling that Ravana was curious as he was, to see him.
vrm.5.48 That powerful Hanuma, tied with those chords of hemp and bark, was relieved of the missile, since the bondage of that missile does not indeed coexist with another bondage.
vrm.5.48 Conceiving that Hanuma the foremost among the Vanaras, bound with the bark of trees, as having been relieved of the missile, the heroic Indrajit, on his part, then became thoughtful as follows: “A person tied with other means cannot indeed be bound again by the missile.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma, liberated from the missile being dragged away by the Rakshasas and afflicted by the ties of ropes, could not realize that he was liberated from the missile.
vrm.5.48 That Hanuma, then being beaten with sticks and fists by the cruel Rakshasas, was dragged to the vicinity of Ravana.
vrm.5.48 Then, recognizing that Hanuma, tied with barks of trees and ropes, but liberated by the missile, Indrajit slowed that mighty Hanuma the jewel among the Vanaras, to Ravana there sitting along with a body of his attendants.
vrm.5.48 The Rakshasas showed to Ravana, the king of Rakshasas that captured Hanuma, the jewel among the foremost of Vanaras who looked like an Elephant in rut.
vrm.5.48 After crossing over the path swiftly, the high souled Hanuma saw there the palace of Ravana, decorated with highly precious stones and his elderly attendants sitting at the feet of Ravana.
vrm.5.48 That Ravana, who was endowed with an extraordinary energy, saw Hanuma the foremost of Vanaras, being dragged hither and thither by Rakshasas of ugly countenance.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma the jewel among the Vanaras also saw Ravana the king of Rakshasas, charged with luster and strength and blazing like the sun.
vrm.5.48 That Ravana, rolling his red hot eyes with rage by seeing that Hanuma and thereafter seeing his important ministers who were elder to his by clan and character sitting there, ordered them to interrogate Hanuma.
vrm.5.48 Questioned, as per order, by those ministers as to the purpose of his operation and the motive of his act, that Hanuma at the outset informed, “I came from Sugreeva as an envoy.
vrm.5.49 Then, Hanuma with a terrific prowess, was enraged at his capture and his being dragged and saw Ravana with his red hot eyes.
vrm.5.49 Hanuma saw Ravana with a great splendor, sitting on the throne, looking like a rainy cloud on the peak of Mount Meru.
vrm.5.49 Though tortured by the Rakshasas that Hanuma, of terrific prowess, experiencing a great surprise, looked attentively at Ravana.
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 Seeing the power of Ravana the king of Rakshasas, who possessed an unlimited vigour, the intelligent Hanuma formulated many kinds of thoughts in this way.
vrm.5.50 That Ravana, the long armed, who caused people to cry, looking up at that Vanara standing in front of him, was affected with violent anger, having his mind seized with suspicion, speculated as follows about Hanuma, the jewel among the Vanaras, who was invested with splendour.
vrm.5.50 Hearing the words of Ravana, Prahasta spoke the following words to Hanuma, “Take courage! Happiness to you! You need not get frightened, O Vanara!” “O Vanara! If Indra has sent you to the abode of Ravana, tell me the truth.
vrm.5.50 Hearing the words of Prahasta, Hanuma spoke to Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas as follows, "I am not a messenger of Indra or Yama or Varuna.
vrm.5.51 Seeing that highly energetic Ravana, the courageous Hanuma coolly spoke to him the following meaningful words:
vrm.5.51 “I am, however, an own son of wind god and named as Hanuma.
vrm.5.51 Hearing those unpleasant words endowed with extreme skillfulness and which were spoken without fear from Hanuma, that unequalled Ravana ordered for the killing of that Hanuma.
vrm.5.52 Hearing those words of the high=souled Hanuma, Ravana duly excited with anger, ordered for the killing of Hanuma.
vrm.5.52 While it was ordered by the evil natured Ravana for the killing of Hanuma, Vibhishana did not agree to the killing of Hanuma, who was entrusted with the functions of a messenger.
vrm.5.53 Hearing those words of Ravana, the Rakshasas, hard tempered with their wrath, wrapped, up old ragged clothes around Hanuma s tail.
vrm.5.53 While his tail was being wrapped around with cotton tatters, Hanuma proliferating, soon after catching dry wood in forests.
vrm.5.53 Then, Hanuma, with his face resembling a rising sun with his mind filled with anger and impatience and with his burning tail, threw those Rakshasas down.
vrm.5.53 To see the burning tail of that Hanuma, the delighted Rakshasas together with their women, chldren and elders went there.
vrm.5.53 Tied down again by the cruel Rakshasas, coming together, the heroic Hanuma the foremost among Vanaras made up his mind appropriate for that occasion as follows: "Though I have been tied down, those Rakshasas cannot do whatever they wish to do against me.
vrm.5.53 Then, those delighted Rakshasas went, seizing Hanuma, who concealed all types of his feelings, who was strong and foremost among Vanaras.
vrm.5.53 Sounding couches and kettle drums and proclaining the acts of Hanuma like his damaging of the pleasure garden, the Rakshasas performing terrible deeds, dragged Hanuma through out that city.
vrm.5.53 Accompanied by Rakshasas, Hanuma the annihilator of enemies, went happily and roamed about in that great city of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.53 Then, Hanuma saw some wonderful house some wrapped up plots of land and well parted cross ways.
vrm.5.53 Hanuma, the son of Vayu, saw streets congested with dwellings, places where several roads meet, high ways as also approach roads, small inner apartments and palaces appearing in multitudes, like clouds.
vrm.5.53 All the Rakshasas proclaimed in cross roads, four pillared temples and in royal high ways, saying that Hanuma was a spy.
vrm.5.53 Women, children and old people came out from their respective dwellings, with an eagerness to see that Hanuma with his burning tail.
vrm.5.53 While the tip of Hanuma s tail was being ignited by the Rakshasas there, those female Rakshasas with monstrous eyes then informed that unpleasant matter to Seetha, the princess.
vrm.5.53 Then, the large eyed Seetha, wishing for the welfare of Hanuma, prayed the Agni with her devoted self.
vrm.5.53 "If I have done any service to my husband, if I have performed a penance and if I am a faithful wife, please be cool to Hanuma.
vrm.5.53 "If the wise Rama has even a little of kindness to me and if I have still some good fortune remaining to my credit, please be cool to Hanuma.
vrm.5.53 "If that virtuous Rama recognises me as one,, who is endowed with a good moral conduct and who is ardently desirous of meeting him, please be cool to Hanuma.
vrm.5.53 "If the venerable Sugreeva, true to his promise, can make me traverse from this ocean of sorrow, please be cool to Hanuma.
vrm.5.53 Then, the Agni, as though informing the fawn eyed Seetha about the well being of Hanuma, shone brightly with sharp flames, undisteurbed and shooting out pointed flames towards the right.
vrm.5.53 Even wind god, the father of Hanuma, combined with the fire on Hanuma s tail, swept coolly like a snow breeze, creating a solace to Seetha.
vrm.5.53 While his tail was in flames, Hanuma was reflecting why the fire, which was blazing on all sides, was not burning him.
vrm.5.53 That Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras, reflected agian for a monment, jumped with swiftness and roared too.
vrm.5.53 Then, the glorious Hanuma like a mountain peak, approached the city gate, which was looking high and stood secluded from the crowds of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.53 That prudent Hanuma assumed the form of a mountain and immediately within a moment, assumed an exceedingly short form, thus becoming free from his tethers.
vrm.5.53 The glorious Hanuma, having been free from his bonds, again assumed the form equal to a mountain and while looking around, found and iron rod belonging to the arched door way.
vrm.5.53 That long armed Hanuma, again taking taht rod made of iron, killed all those guards.
vrm.5.53 That Hanuma, having an impetuous valour in combat, destroying those Rakshasas and looking over Lanka, shone like the sun encircled with rays, with the wreath of flames blazing on his tail.
vrm.5.54 Then, after fulfilling his heart s wish, Hanuma, looking over Lanka, thought about the remaining act to be done, with an augmented energy.
vrm.5.54 Then, Hanuma, with his burning tail, strolled over the house tops of Lanka, like a cloud charged with lightning.
vrm.5.54 Surveying the gardens and lofty palatial mansions, that Hanuma, without fear, passed from one house to another, of the Rakshasas.
vrm.5.54 Jumping down on Prahasta s house, the valiant Hanuma, with great swiftness, having strength equal to wind, scattering fire on it, jumped over from there, to another house belonging to Mahaparshva.
vrm.5.54 Hanuma, with great swiftness, having strength equal to wind, scattering fire on it, jumped over from there, to another house belonging to Mahaparshva.
vrm.5.54 Hanuma scattered a fire there resembling a flame of fire that is to destroy the world.
vrm.5.54 That Hanuma, of great splendour, then leapt to the houses of Vajradamshtra, Shuka and Sarana, the intelligent.
vrm.5.54 Leaving the house of Vibhishana, Hanuma of great splendour, went successively to the houses of Rashmiketu, Surya shatru, Hrasvakarna, Damshtra, Romasha the Rakshasa, Yuddhonmatta, Matta, Dhvajagreeva the Rakshasa, the terrific Vidyujjihva, Hastimukha, Karala, Pishacha, Shonitaksha, Kumbhakarna, Makaraksha, Yajnashatru, Brahmashatru, Narantaka, Kumbha as also the evil minded Nikumbha and burnt the houses.
vrm.5.54 That Hanuma of great fame burnt away wealth in the mansions of the rich.
vrm.5.54 Having passed over all the houses, the mighty and glorious Hanuma thereafter approached the house of Ravana the king of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.54 Thereafter, scattering a blazing fire located at the tip of his tail, on that principal house, decorated with various kinds of precious stones, resembling Mounts Meru and Mandara as also embellished with all good work, the valiant Hanuma roared like a cloud thundering at noon time in a rainy season.
vrm.5.54 That Hanuma saw molten metals mixed with diamonds, corals, cat s eye gems, pearls and silver, surging from every marvellous house.
vrm.5.54 As the fire does not get satisfied with any amount of firewood and straw fed to it, Hanuma was not wearied in killing any number of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.54 The earth was not then wearied in receiving the number of Rakshasas killed by Hanuma in her lap.
vrm.5.54 The high souled Hanuma, the swift Vanara scorched the city of Lanka, as Rudra scorched the city of Tripura.
vrm.5.54 Then, the fire having a terrific prowess, diffused by the swift Hanuma, stretching out a circle of flames, blazed and rose up to the summit of the mountain on which the city of Lanka.
vrm.5.54 Making a very terrific noise with a dreadful sound, the Rakshasas cried in various ways as follows: "O my dear beloved son! O my beloved husband! O my friend! O my very auspicious life, filled with enjoyments!" That Lanka appeared as though afflicted by a curse, as defeated by a strong fury of Hanuma, enveloped by flames of fire, with its distinguished heroes killed and with its warriors in retreat.
vrm.5.54 Hanuma, with his great mind, saw Lanka with its dazed, frightened and dejected Rakshasas, marked by blazing flames of fire and afflicted by the fury of Brahma the creator of the universe.
vrm.5.54 After demolishing the garden which was full of excellent trees, killing great Rakshasas in battle and burning that city endowed with a series of excellent houses, Hanuma the Vanara and the son of Vayu, stood at ease.
vrm.5.54 Standing there on the wonderful flat summit of Mount Trikuta, Hanuma the foremost leader of the Vanaras, having a garland of flames formed by his blazing tail, shone like the sun having a garland of rays.
vrm.5.54 Killing those multitudes of Rakshasas, demolishing that garden endowed with several trees and scattering fire on the houses of Rakshasas, the high souled Hanuma sought Rama with his mind.
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 Demolishing the garden, killing the Rakshasas in battle, Hanuma of great splendour shone brightly, after burning the beautiful City of Lanka.
vrm.5.54 Seeing that Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras and a mighty Vanara, all the created beings were frightened, thinking of him as a fire that is to destroy the world.
vrm.5.55 Seeing the city of Lanka blazing, and frightened with its multitude of Rakshasas getting alarmed, Hanuma the Vanara became thoughtful.
vrm.5.55 While thinking thus, Hanuma clearly saw some omens, whose welcome results had already been directly experienced by him and again thought as follows
vrm.5.55 How can it burn the venerable Seetha?" Hanuma then recalled with wonder the sight of Mount Mainaka having gold in its cavities in the midst of sea water there.
vrm.5.55 Hanuma, who was thus thinking there about the overpowering virtue of Seetha, happened to hear the words of the high souled charanas heavenly bards.
vrm.5.55 "Alas! Hanuma, who hurled a very terrific fire into Ravana s house, has indeed done a difficult act.
vrm.5.55 That Hanuma became delighted in his mind, by seeing the omens, with their apparent advantages in them and very high qualities of their origin as also the words of those sages.
vrm.5.55 Then, Hanuma, having fulfilled his object of desire by learning that Seetha the princess remains uninjured, made up his mind to return only after seeing her personally yet again.
vrm.5.56 Thereafter, having offered his salutation to Seetha, who was present at the foot of Ashoka tree, Hanuma spoke: "Thank heaven! I am seeing you uninjured here!" Then, beholding again and again, that Hanuma, who had made ready for his return journey, Seetha spoke the following words, filled with affection towards her husband.
vrm.5.56 "O Hanuma, the annihilator of enemies! You are yourself surely sufficient single handed completion of this task.
vrm.5.56 Hearing those humble, reasonable and meaningful words of Seetha, Hanuma spoke the following words in reply.
vrm.5.56 Hanuma, the son of Vayu, thus consoling Seetha and making up his mind to go, saluted Seetha with reverence.
vrm.5.56 Thereafter, that Hanuma the foremost among the Vanaras, and the annihilator of enemies, with an anxious desire to see his lord, ascended the Mount Arishta of excellence.
vrm.5.56 Hanuma, the son of Vayu, in a hurry to see Rama, ascended that mountain, excited as he was with an extreme joy.
vrm.5.56 Then, the rocks in the charming table land of the mountain, on which the soles of Hanuma lied heavily, were crushed with noise and fallen to pieces.
vrm.5.56 Desirous of reaching the northern shore from the southern shore of that ocean, Hanuma ascended that mountain and enlarged his body.
vrm.5.56 Then, the valiant Hanuma after ascending the mountain, saw the terrific ocean inhabited by fishes and water snakes.
vrm.5.56 Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras and the son of the wind god, entered the sky towards northern direction, like a wind, from southern direction.
vrm.5.56 Pressed at that moment by Hanuma, that excellent mountain sank into the bowels of the earth along with the various living beings and made a noise with its shaking summits and toppling trees.
vrm.5.56 Shaken by the impetus of the thighs of Hanuma, trees in blossom were broken and fell down on earth, as though struck by a thunder bolt.
vrm.5.56 Pressed down by that strong Hanuma, that beautiful mountain having its elevated summits crowned with trees, entered the bowels of the earth.
vrm.5.56 With a desire to cross easily the terrific ocean, whose shores were being lashed by its waves, which Hanuma jumped up into the air.
vrm.5.57 Hanuma, with a rush equal to that of wind, without a fatigue, leapt across the boundless sea looking analogous to sky, like a large ship crossing the ocean.
vrm.5.57 While moving in the sky, the illustrious Hanuma, the son of wind god and the great Vanara, appeared as if swallowing the sky, scratching
vrm.5.57 Time and again, entering and coming out of the clusters of clouds, Hanuma appeared like the moon becoming visible and invisible again and again.
vrm.5.57 The heroic Hanuma, who was clad in white clothes, having found his way into various kinds of dense clouds and energing again and having his personlaity becoming visible and invisible, shone like the moon in the sky.
vrm.5.57 Tearing asunder the clusters of clouds again and again as also energing from them and roaring with a big noise, Hanuma the son of Vayu, making a thunderous great sound, shone flying like Garuda the eagle, in the
vrm.5.57 Killing the foremost of Rakshasas, becoming famous by is name, making Lanka perplexed, causing anguish to Ravana by tormenting his terrible army, and bidding his adieu to Seetha, Hanuma returned by flying over the middle of the sea.
vrm.5.57 Touching Mount Mainaka, the victorious Hanuma came with a great
vrm.5.57 Approaching a bit near and observing Mount Mahendra, the great mountain looking like a dense cloud, that Hanuma made a loud noise.
vrm.5.57 Emitting a great roar, that Hanuma, whole loud noise resembled the rumbling of a cloud, filled the whole space in all directions with the noise.
vrm.5.57 Having reached that place, Hanuma who was ardently desirous of seeing his friends, roared and waved his tail.
vrm.5.57 Those mighty heroes who were waiting already on the northern shore of the sea, with an eagerness to see Hanuma, heard there at that time, the sound produced by the sweeping motion of Hanuma s thighs, which resembled the reoar of a huge cloud propelled by the wind.
vrm.5.57 All those Vanaras, who were distressed in mind for not having heard the news of Seetha hitherto, heard Hanuma s roar similar to the roar of a rumbling cloud.
vrm.5.57 Hearing that roar of Hanuma, who was making the sound, all those mokeys stationed there in all directions, became anxiously desirous of seeing their friend.
vrm.5.57 This Hanuma has accomplished his assignment in all ways.
vrm.5.57 Hearing the sound of the dashing movement of the high souled Hanuma s arms and thighs, the Vanaras moved by jumps with joy from their respective places.
vrm.5.57 Those Vanaras with joy, longing to see Hanuma, took off from the top of one tree to the tops of other trees as also from one mountain summit to the other summits.
vrm.5.57 The mighty, Hanuma the son of Vayu, roared as though the wind roars while it enters the caves of mountains.
vrm.5.57 Seeing that Hanuma then rushing like a dense cloud, all those Vanaras stood there, joining their palms in salutation.
vrm.5.57 The swift Hanuma, looking like a mountain, then descended on the summit of that Mount mahendra, thick with trees.
vrm.5.57 Hanuma like a mountain with its wings torn off, thrilled with joy, fell from the sky into a charming mountain torrent.
vrm.5.57 Then, all the foremost of those Vanaras, with their pleasing hearts, stood surrounding the high souled Hanuma.
vrm.5.57 Having encircled Hanuma, all of them obtained a supreme joy.
vrm.5.57 All those mokeys with their delightful faces, taking roots and fruits as their presents, honured Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras, who came back hale and healthy.
vrm.5.57 Then, Hanuma the excellent one among the Vanaras, on his part, offered his salutation to venerable persons and elders like Jambavan in the first place, as also Angada, the prince.
vrm.5.57 Jambavan and Angada honoured that victorious and venerable Hanuma.
vrm.5.57 Hanuma informed them briefly that he had seen Seetha.
vrm.5.57 Then, seizing the hand of Angada, Vali s son, Hanuma sat down at a distinct spot in the charming forest of Mount Mahendra.
vrm.5.57 Then, the pleased Hanuma spoke the following words to those excellent Vanaras: I saw that Seetha, the duaghter of Janaka, who was staying in Ashoka garden, guarded unblemished by highly dreadful female Rakshasas and wearing a single braid, young woman, as she was, longing to see Rama, thoroughly fatigued due to her fasting, with her hair twisted together, wearing soiled clothes and looking emaciated.
vrm.5.57 Hearing from Hanuma that important and nectar like word to the effect that Seetha had been seen all the Vanaras became delighted.
vrm.5.57 Descending from the mountain tops some other Vanaras, with delight, fondingly touched Hanuma who resembled an Elephant.
vrm.5.57 After hearing the words of Hanuma, Angada spoke the follwoing excellent words in the midst of those eminent Vanaras.
vrm.5.57 O Hanuma! Since you returned here crossing the extensive
vrm.5.57 encircling Angada, Hanuma and Jambavan.
vrm.5.57 Longing to hear about crossing of ocean and the seeing of Lanka, Seetha and Ravana, all those excellent Vanaras waited with their joined palms, in anctipation of Hanuma s words.
vrm.5.57 The high and large summit of the mountain, on which were seated then with delight, the illustrious Hanuma and the famous Angada, with bracelets worn on his upper arms, stood blazed with splendour.
vrm.5.58 Thereafter, the mighty Vanaras, headed by Hanuma and others, experienced a great joy on that summit of Mount Mahendra.
vrm.5.58 Then, Jambavan, thrilling with rapture, asked the delighted Hanuma, the great Vanara about the particulars of that actual occurrence of seeing Seetha as follows “How did you see Seetha? How was she there? How was that Ravana of terrible deeds behaving towards her?” “O Hanuma! Tell us entirely, in truth whatever has occurred.
vrm.5.58 Thus commanded by Jambavan, Hanuma, with his hair standing on end mentally offered his salutation to Seetha, the princess, by bowing his head and replied as follows: “With an intention to reach the southern shore of the ocean, I leapt into the sky, indeed before your presence, from the summit of Mount Mahendra.
vrm.5.58 O Hanuma the annihilator of enemies! I have to behave in such a way as to help Rama.
vrm.5.58 "I heard Siddhas and Charanas, moving in the sky, saying that Simhika the dreadful Rakshasa was instantly killed by Hanuma.
vrm.5.58 "Know me, who came here, as Hanuma, a servant of that Sugreeva, Rama, you husband, who is unwearied in his actions, sent me here for your sake.
vrm.5.58 "Determining something in mind, she spoke to me again as follows: O Hanuma! You ought to tell Rama about my tale of woes occurring here
vrm.5.58 I am the offspring of wind god and a Vanara by name Hanuma
vrm.5.58 Therefore, I am sending Hanuma rightly to your presence
vrm.5.59 After informing all this, Hanuma the son of Vayu started telling more of the following words.
vrm.5.59 I am Hanuma, a servant of Rama and the son of Vayu
vrm.5.60 Hearing those words of Hanuma, Angada the son of Vali spoke as follows: "Even after our seeing of Seetha, it is not proper for us to approach the high souled Rama without taking Seetha with us.
vrm.5.60 Hanuma" indeed thus killed all the warriors among the Rakshasas.
vrm.5.61 Thereupon, the heroic Vanaras like Angada and others as also Hanuma, the great one among the Vanaras accepted the words of Jambavan.
vrm.5.61 Then, the excellent Vanaras, resembling Meru and Mandara mountains, like Elephants in rut, as if covering the sky, having huge bodies and colossal strength, keeping Hanuma in their front, leaving Mount Mahendra, went ahead leaping delightfully.
vrm.5.61 They looked as though conducted by the mind s eyes of Hanuma, who is adored by living beings as having good stupendous swiftness, they having resolved to fulfill the purpose of Rama and to attain a great glory, having accomplished the purpose and duly determined to complete the task.
vrm.5.62 Hanuma, like a bull among the Vanaras and the foremost among them spoke to them as follows: "Cherish the honey with a cool mind, O Vanaras! I will keep off your opposer who is standing in your way.
vrm.5.62 Hearing the words of Hanuma, the gracious minded Angada the principal among the Vanaras repeated the words: "Let the Vanaras drink the honey.
vrm.5.62 "The words, though improper of Hanuma who had accomplished his task, are to be obliged certainly by me.
vrm.5.62 Because Hanuma had seen Seetha and others had heard of her and because of the grant of permission from Angada, all those gifted Vanaras entered Madhuvana the grove, overpowered the guards with their prowess, drank honey and the partook juicy fruits there.
vrm.5.62 Dragged by their knees and tossed up in the air by the Vanaras, those honey keepers were very much depressed, went to Dadhimukha and complained as follows: "The Vanaras, as permitted by Hanuma, violently destroyed Madhuvana.
vrm.5.62 Seeing Dadhimukha coming with anger, Hanuma along with eminent Vanaras ran towards him with speed.
vrm.5.63 None other than Hanuma must have seen Seetha.
vrm.5.63 "There is none other than, Hanuma who is the executor in accomplishing this work.
vrm.5.63 In that Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras, capacity to accomplish any object intelligence strenuous, vigour effort and learning are well established in his life.
vrm.5.63 "Where Jambavan as well as Angada are leaders and Hanuma is an administrator, the progress of that work cannot be as otherwise.
vrm.5.63 "I, together with Rama and Lakshmana, soon desire to see those Vanaras, with Hanuma as their chief, who having acquired the pride of a lion and who attained his purpose and also to hear about their effort in finding out Seetha.
vrm.5.64 None other than Hanuma must have seen Seetha.
vrm.5.64 There is indeed none other than Hanuma, who is the executor.
vrm.5.64 "O Rama, having a very good understanding! In Hanuma, qualities like capacity to accomplish any object, intelligence, strenuous effort and vigour are unchangeable, like a splendour in the sun.
vrm.5.64 "Where Jambavan is a leader Angada as the commander of troops and moreover Hanuma as the administer, the progress of that work cannot be as otherwise.
vrm.5.64 "O Rama, of unlimited prowess! Do not encounter troubled thoughts now!" Meanwhile, when the Vanaras, who are proud of Hanuma s performance and who are making noise as though they are proclaiming about the accomplishment of their act are approaching Kishkindha Sugreeva heard certain sounds expressing joy, in the vicinity of the sky.
vrm.5.64 Keeping Angada and Hanuma in front of them, those Vanaras too arrived with their eagerness to see Rama.
vrm.5.64 Thereafter, the mighty armed Hanuma, offering his salutation in bending his head low, informed Rama that Seetha the princess is constant in devotion to Rama and sound in body.
vrm.5.64 Hearing the nectar like words, saying Seetha" was found" from the mouth of Hanuma, Rama and Lakshmana felt happy.
vrm.5.64 Thereupon, Lakshmana with love looked with reverence on the joyful Sugreeva, who earlier decidedly apprised about the aforesaid Hanuma, having accomplished the task.
vrm.5.64 Rama, the annihilator of hostile heroes, who obtained a great joy, looked on Hanuma with a high esteem.
vrm.5.65 Hearing the words of Rama, the Vanaras urged Hanuma to tell, in the presence of Rama, all the incidents because he knew them better, about Seetha.
vrm.5.65 Hearing the words of those Vanaras, the eloquent Hanuma, the son of Vayu saluting towards the direction of the Seetha the princess by bowing his head, spoke the following words, explaining how he saw Seetha.
vrm.5.65 Seetha" spoke to me saying, O Hanuma! Inform Rama, the foremost among men, all that you have seen here.
vrm.5.65 Coming to know that the two princes, Rama and Lakshmana have become confident and having given that token of remembrance to Rama, Hanuma apprised completely in so many words, in regular succession, all that was conveyed by Seetha, the princess.
vrm.5.66 Hearing the words of Hanuma, Rama the son of Dasaratha, having Lakshmana by his side, pressing that jewel on his bosom, began to weep.
vrm.5.66 "O Hanuma! Tell me now, correctly what Seetha told you.
vrm.5.67 Hearing the words of the high souled Rama, Hanuma reported to Rama, all the words spoken by Seetha.
vrm.5.67 "With her eyes filled with tears, looking miserable, with her words ambiguously coming out of her coked throat, bewildered as she was, at the though of my flying away and afflicted with a gush of grief she spoke to me as follows: "O Hanuma! Inquire those two brothers Rama and Lakshmana looking like Lions, Sugreeva together with his ministers and all others about their welfare.
vrm.5.68 "O Hanuma the annihilator of hostile enemies! You, as one alone, are capable of fulfilling this task.
vrm.6.3 Hearing the well founded and highly reasonable words of Sugreeva, Rama concurred with him and spoke then to Hanuma as follows:
vrm.6.3 “Tell me how many citadels in Lanka are difficult of access, Oh, Hanuma! I desire to know all that, as though viewed with an eye.
vrm.6.3 Hearing the words of Rama, Hanuma the son of Vayu, who was excellent in the art of expression, forthwith spoke once more to Rama as follows: “Listen to me! I shall tell you everything–how the city of Lanka has been defended by the various methods of fortification and how it has been guarded by the troops.
vrm.6.3 Saying so, Hanuma the foremost among Vanaras, who knew the truth narrated as follows.
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.6.6 The thousand pillared building used as a sanctuary was assaulted by Hanuma.
vrm.6.8 Why to talk about two human beings?” “All of us, in good faith but with negligence, were cheated by Hanuma.
vrm.6.8 Thereafter the very strong Vajradamshtra, beset with great anger, took hold of a terrific iron club smeared with flesh and blood and spoke as follows: “What work for us with that pitiable and miserable Hanuma, when Rama along with Lakshmana and Sugreeva who are difficult to be conquered exist?” “Now itself, with this iron club, killing Rama, Lakshmana and Sugreeva after perturbing the army of Vanaras, I shall come back.
vrm.6.8 I alone will kill there, Rama along with Lakshman, Sugreeva along with Hanuma and all the Vanaras also.
vrm.6.8 At this time I alone will kill Sugreeva along with Lakshmana Hanuma along with Angada and all Vanaras.
vrm.6.9 “Now itself, we shall kill Rama along with Lakshmana and Sugreeva as well as the pitiable Hanuma by whom Lanka was attacked.
vrm.6.28 For this reason, because of his strong jaw, he is called Hanuma.
vrm.6.52 Having driven away the army of Rakshasas, Hanuma born of Maruta, breaking off the peak of a mountain, ran towards Dhumraksha.
vrm.6.52 Thereafter, Dhumraksha with an outrage, brought down that mace studded with countless spikes on the head of that Hanuma.
vrm.6.59 The exceedingly energetic Hanuma, born of Maruta the god of wind, beholding this, rushed on Ravana in order to bring that rain of arrows to an end.
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 Hearing the words of Hanuma, the exceedingly valiant Ravana, his eyes inflamed with anger, answered.
vrm.6.59 Hearing the words of Ravana, Hanuma the son of Vayu spoke the following words: Recollect that I have killed your son Aksha already.
vrm.6.59 Thus spoken, the highly energetic and the valiant Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas struck Hanuma the son of Anila a violent blow on his chest with the palm of his hand.
vrm.6.59 Hanuma, thus struck with Ravana s palm, reeled repeatedly.
vrm.6.59 Thereafter the highly sagacious and illustrious Hanuma secured his balance within a moment and in fury, struck Ravana the enemy of Immortals with the very palm of his hand.
vrm.6.59 Under the violent impact of the blow of the mighty Hanuma Ravana shook like a mountain when the earth trembles.
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 Then, Hanuma answered, O, Ravana! Cursed by that strength since you do still survive! O, foolish fellow! Why this boasting? Now come, strike me once! My fist is about to dispatch you to the Abode of Yama the Lord of Death! Hearing the words of Hanuma, the powerful Ravana, enraged, his
vrm.6.59 eyes red with fury and whirling his fist with force knocked it down violently on Hanuma s chest.
vrm.6.59 Under the shock, Hanuma reeled once again.
vrm.6.59 Seeing that mighty Hanuma exhausted, Ravana turned his chariot towards Nila.
vrm.6.59 Meanwhile, Hanuma of exalted mind, burning with courage, regained his breath and in his martial ire cried out furiously towards Ravana, the Lord of Rakshasas who occupied in fight with Nila as follows: It is not proper to
vrm.6.59 peak of his diadem, Lakshmana, Hanuma and Rama were astonished.
vrm.6.59 Thereupon, the enraged Hanuma the son of the Wind God, rushed towards Ravana and struck angrily on his chest with his fist, resembling a thunder bolt.
vrm.6.59 Then, the courageous Hanuma lifting up Lakshmana in his arms, who had been wounded by Ravana, brought him to Rama s presence.
vrm.6.59 That Lakshmana, whom his foes were unable to move, became light for Hanuma because of friendship and great devotion of Hanuma the son of Wind God towards him.
vrm.6.59 Meanwhile, Hanuma approaching Rama spoke the following words: You have to punish the Rakshasa by climbing my back, as Vishnu on Garuda in order to fight with the Enemy of Gods.
vrm.6.59 Hearing those words spoken by Hanuma the son of Vayu, Rama
vrm.6.59 soon after mounted the great Vanara, Hanuma.
vrm.6.61 Then, Gavaksha, Sharabha, Hanuma and Angada looking like mountains, reached the gate, taking the mountian tops.
vrm.6.63 In the battle, I will kill Rama, Lakshmana, the mighty Sugreeva and even Hanuma, by whom the city of Lanka was burnt off and the Rakshasas were killed.
vrm.6.67 Staying in the sky, Hanuma showered mountain tops, rocks and various types of trees on Kumbhakarna s head.
vrm.6.67 Taking a mountain peak in his hands, Hanuma stood in front of the approaching Kumbhakarna.
vrm.6.67 The enraged Hanuma struck with violence Kumbhakarna, who was endowed with a magnificent body and looking like the most elevated mountain.
vrm.6.67 Thus attacked by Hanuma, Kumbhakarna was stumbled with a sprinkling of blood and with his limbs succulent with flesh.
vrm.6.67 Holding firmly the spike, which was bright as lightning and looking like a blazing mountain peak, Kumbhakarna struck Hanuma on his chest, as Guha skanda, the son of shiva struck Krauncha mountain with his powerful javelin.
vrm.6.67 That Hanuma, struck in his broad chest by the spike in that great combat, was highly perturbed and while vomiting blood from his mouth, awfully roared like the sound of thunderous clouds at the time of dissolution of the world.
vrm.6.67 Looking at the perturbed Hanuma, all the troops of Rakshasas then suddenly shouted with rejoice.
vrm.6.67 Hanuma, jumping up and holding with his arms that sharp spike, furnished with golden wreaths, and propelled by Kumbhakarna s arms, wreaths, and smashed it rapidly.
vrm.6.67 Then, the rejoiced Hanuma, placing on his knee, that large spike made of iron weighing twenty thousand Tulas, broke it.
vrm.6.67 Seeing Hanuma breaking the spike, that army of Vanaras was rejoiced, roared several times and came back quickly from all quarters.
vrm.6.67 Seeing the fate of spike in such a broken condition, they adored Hanuma.
vrm.6.67 Seeing the army of Vanaras running away hither and thither and Sugreeva the Vanara even being taken away by Kumbhakarna, the intellectual Hanuma, the son of Vayu thought as follows: "While Sugreeva is being taken away in this way, what is to be done by me? I shall certainly do that which is justifiable to be done by me.
vrm.6.67 Thinking in this way, Hanuma the son of Vayu, then again brought firmness to the large army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.70 Noticing Angada being surrounded by the three Rakshasa warriors, Hanuma and Neela went there.
vrm.6.70 Seeing Hanuma rushing with enthusiasm in the battle front, that strong Devantaka ran towards him with his iron rod.
vrm.6.70 Then, Hanuma the foremost of Vanaras, while jumping up, struck on the head of Devantaka rushing upon him with his fist equal to a thunder bolt.
vrm.6.70 Then, the valiant and the strong Hanuma struck him on his head.
vrm.6.70 Trishira was enraged seized hold of his bow and struck Hanuma with sharp arrows.
vrm.6.70 While that enraged Hanuma hurled a mountain peak, the strong Trishira broke it into several pieces with his sharp arrows.
vrm.6.70 Seeing that mountain peak becoming useless, Hanuma then hurled a volley of trees towards Trishira in that battle field.
vrm.6.70 Then, the enraged Hanuma on his part, bouncing up, tore asunder with his nails, TrishirasHorse, as a lion tears asunder a large Elephant.
vrm.6.70 Thereupon, Trishira the son of Ravana seizing hold of a spear, as Yama the lord of death takes in his service Kalaratri, a night of all destroying time, hurled it on Hanuma.
vrm.6.70 Capturing that spear coming like a meteor in the sky, Hanuma the foremost of Vanaras broke it, even without its descending on him and roared too.
vrm.6.70 Seeing that spear of a terrific form broken up by Hanuma, the Vanara troops were very much delighted and roared aloud like rumbling clouds.
vrm.6.70 Hurt by the thrust of the sword, the valiant Hanuma the son of Vayu, struck Trishira on his breast, with his palm.
vrm.6.70 Hanuma, that large ape, equal to a mountain in size, snatching away that falling sword of Trishira, roared loudly frightening all the Rakshasas there.
vrm.6.70 Unable to bear that roar, the Rakshasa jumped up and struck Hanuma with his fist.
vrm.6.70 Enraged as he was by the blow of Trishiras’s fist, Hanuma seized hold of Trishira the foremost of Rakshasas by his head covered by his diadem.
vrm.6.70 That enraged Hanuma the son of Vayu chopped off with that sharp sword, his three heads furnished with diadems and ear rings, like Indra chopped off the heads of Vishvarupa the son of Tvashta.
vrm.6.74 Then, the intelligent Hanuma, the son of Vayu, paying honour to the missile presided over by Brahma and hearing the words of Vibhishana, spoke the following words: “Let us restore to confidence whosoever is in this army of energetic Vanaras, after having been struck by the missile.
vrm.6.74 Both those valiant ones, Hanuma and Vibhishana, together at that time of the night, roamed about in the battle front, with torches in their hands.
vrm.6.74 Hanuma and Vibhishana saw the battle field, covered on all sides, with mountain sized Vanaras fallen with heir tails, arms, thighs, feet, fingers and heaps of heads fractured with blood oozing from their limbs and urine flowing out.
vrm.6.74 Vibhishana and Hanuma saw Sugreeva, Angada, Nila, Sharabha, Gandhamadana, Gavaksha, Sushena, Vegadarshi, Mainda, Nala, Jyotimukha and a Vanara called Dvivida, who were struck down on the battle field.
vrm.6.74 Hanuma, along with Vibhishana, began to search for Jambavan, while looking at the terrific army wounded by the arrows which appeared like the tide of an ocean.
vrm.6.74 “O Vibhishana, of good manners! Does Hanuma, the foremost among Vanaras, because of whom, Anjana his mother and the wind god are his blessed parents survive, holding his life any where nearby?”
vrm.6.74 Hearing the words of Jambavan, Vibhishana spoke the following words, “why do you enquire about Hanuman, passing over the venerable sons of Dasaratha?” “O venerable one! The exceptional affection, you are showing towards Hanuma, is not being shown towards Sugreeva or Angada or even Rama.
vrm.6.74 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Jambavan replied as follows: “O the foremost among Rakshasas! Listen to me, why I am enquiring about Hanuma.
vrm.6.74 “If that brave Hanuma is surviving, the whole army even if killed, is unhurt.
vrm.6.74 On the other hand, if Hanuma has given up is life, we are all dead, even though living.
vrm.6.74 “O dear child! If Hanuma, who is equal to the wind and the fire in prowess, survives then there is a hope for all of us to survive.
vrm.6.74 Thereafter, Hanuma the son of Vayu approaching the elderly Jambavan, offered his salutation, by grasping the feet of Jambavan with modesty.
vrm.6.74 Hearing the voice of Hanuma, Jambavan, the foremost among Vanaras, with perturbed senses, considered himself as though born again.
vrm.6.74 Thereafter, that Jambavan of great splendour spoke to Hanuma as follows: “Come on, O foremost of Vanaras! You ought to protect the lives of Vanaras.
vrm.6.74 “O Hanuma! You ought to go to Himalaya, the foremost of mountains, by traveling higher and higher over the large ocean.
vrm.6.74 “O valiant Hanuma! In the midst of these two peaks, you will see a blazing and unequally brilliant herbal mountain, containing all kinds of herbs.
vrm.6.74 “O Hanuma! Bring all those herbs quickly.
vrm.6.74 Hearing the words of Jambavan, Hanuma the son of Vayu was infused with animated strength, as the ocean gets animated with the force of the wind.
vrm.6.74 Standing on the summit of Trikuta mountain and pressing the foremost of mountains with his feet, that valiant Hanuma appeared like a second mountain.
vrm.6.74 The trees on that mountain, pressed by Hanuma, fell to the ground and caught fire due to rapidity of Hanuma.
vrm.6.74 The Vanaras were unable to stand on that excellent mountain, which started to reel, while being pressed severely by Hanuma, as the trees standing on it and the rocks got broken.
vrm.6.74 Pressing hard the mountain, Hanuma equal to a mountain, caused the earth along with the ocean to shake.
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.6.74 Pressing the mountain hard with his feet, opening his terrific mouth which shone like a submarine fire and frightening the Rakshasas, Hanuma roared loudly.
vrm.6.74 Hanuma of terrific prowess, annihilator of his enemies, after offering salutation to the ocean, made up his mind to embark on a prime act for the sake of Rama.
vrm.6.74 Raising his tail which resembled on serpent, bending his back, contracting his ears and opening his month which shone like a terrific submarines fire, Hanuma jumped into the sky, with a head long speed.
vrm.6.74 Stretching his arms, looking like coils of serpents, that Hanuma vying with the prowess of hostile Garuda the eagle, headed towards the excellent mountain of Himalayas, with gush as though he was drawing away the four quarters.
vrm.6.74 Beholding the sea, whose waves along with its water were made to agitate and all whose creatures were caused to whirl round, Hanuma quickly speeded up, like the discuss loosed by the fingers of Lord Vishnu.
vrm.6.74 Gazing at the hills, flocks of Birds, lakes, rivers, pools and excellent towns full of people, that Hanuma with a speed equal to that of the wind god his father, shot forth towards Himalayas.
vrm.6.74 That valiant Hanuma, with a prowess equal to that of his father, whose fatigue was gone, swiftly rushed, taking recourse to the orbit of the sun.
vrm.6.74 With a great speed of wind, reverberating the four quarters with sound, Hanuma the foremost of Vanaras, hastened towards Himalayas.
vrm.6.74 Remembering the words of Jambavan, Hanuma the great Vanara with a terrific stride, suddenly saw Mount Himalaya too.
vrm.6.74 Hanuma went to Mount Himalaya, the foremost of mountains, embellished with various kinds of cascades, many kinds of caves, mountain streams and summits resembling an assemblage of white clouds as also many kinds of trees.
vrm.6.74 Seeing that mountain shining with a heap of fire, Hanuma the son of Marut, who is the envoy of Indra, was surprised to see that great mountain of herbs and then made a search for the herbs.
vrm.6.74 That Hanuma, the great Vanara, having crossed thousands of Yojanas, walked around that mountain, searching for the heavenly herbs.
vrm.6.74 In not seeing them thus, that great souled Hanuma was enraged.
vrm.6.74 He made a loud noise in anger unable to bear it, Hanuma with his eyes as red as the fire, spoke the following words to the prince of mountains.
vrm.6.74 Having uprooted that mountain, frightening the worlds together with the leaders of Suras and Asuras inhabiting them and being praised by many aerial beings, Hanuma sprang up into the sky and proceeded expeditiously with the terrible speed of Garuda the eagle.
vrm.6.74 Grasping that mountain peak, radiant as the sun, that Hanuma who resembled the sun, having reached the orbit of the sun, shone as a second sun as sun’s image in the vicinity of the sun.
vrm.6.74 In the sky, with that mountain in his hand, that Hanuma the offspring of the wind god, who resembled a mountain himself, appeared mostly like Vishnu with his flaming discuss with its thousand edges holding his hand.
vrm.6.74 Then, seeing Hanuma, the Vanaras made a noise.
vrm.6.74 Seeing them, Hanuma in turn roared in delight.
vrm.6.74 Thereupon, the great souled Hanuma descended on that prince of mountains Trikuta in the midst of that army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.74 Then, Hanuma the son of Marut, with a great speed, carried away that mountain of herbs quickly back to the mountains of Himalayas and again joined Rama.
vrm.6.75 Then, Sugreeva of great majesty, the king of Vanaras spoke the following meaningful words to Hanuma, in order to inform him what they should do next.
vrm.6.77 The strong Nikumbha, with his arms as strong as his club, hurled his club having sun like splendour, on the breast of that mighty Hanuma.
vrm.6.77 The mighty Hanuma, on his part, stood alone among them, with his breast bared to the fury of the attack, in front of Nikumbha.
vrm.6.77 The strong Nikumbha, with his arms as strong as his club, hurled his club having sun like splendour, on the breast of that mighty Hanuma.
vrm.6.77 The titanic club, which fell on the wide and rock like chest of Hanuma, at once shattered into hundreds of fragments, like hundreds of meteors shattering into the sky.
vrm.6.77 That Hanuma, struck by that blow of the club, was unmoved like a mountain in an earthquake.
vrm.6.77 Thus struck by him, the mighty Hanuma the Vanara chief clenched his fist forcibly.
vrm.6.77 The greatly splendoured, powerful and swift Hanuma, with the violence of the wind god, his father, lifting that fist, struck it against, Nikumbha’s breast with force.
vrm.6.77 But, by that blow, Nikumbha was unmoved, recovered soon and grasped the unwieldy bulk of Hanuma.
vrm.6.77 Seeing the mighty Hanuma lifted off the ground in battle, loud roar of exultant joy rose from the ranks of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.77 Eventhough he was being carried off in that way by that Rakshasa, Hanuma the son of Marut, struck him with his thunderbolt like fist.
vrm.6.77 Freeing himself from Nikumbha, Hanuma the son of Marut then threw him down on the ground and treated him with blows.
vrm.6.77 Throwing down Nikumbha by main force and with a supreme effort, Hanuma descended on him, leaped on his chest and pounded it mercilessly.
vrm.6.77 Then, while the roaring Nikumbha was killed in battle by Hanuma, there ensued an exceedingly terrific struggle between the enraged Rama and Makaraksha, son of Khara, a ruler of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.81 Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras, taking hold of a very large mountain peak, which was difficult to be reached by others, marched in front.
vrm.6.81 That Hanuma saw Seetha, the wife of Rama, the best among women, bereft of joy, wearing only a single braid of hair, looking miserable, with her face emaciated due to fasting, dressed in a single worn out clothing, unadorned and with all her limbs covered with dust and dirt in the chaiot of Indrajit.
vrm.6.81 On seeing her for a moment, Hanuma ascertained her as Seetha and became dejected.
vrm.6.81 Seeing her stricken with grief bereft of joy, looking distreseed, miserable and sitting under the sway of Indrajit, Hanuma wondered as to what his intention might be.
vrm.6.81 While those Vanaras were seeing, Rakshasa began to strike that woman who was placed in the chariot by the dint of his conjuring trick and who was crying Rama"! Rama!" On seeing her seized by the hair Hanuma the son of Marut was confounded with affliction and shed tears, in agony from his eyes.
vrm.6.81 On seeing Seetha with all her charming limbs, the beloved wife of Rama, Hanuma angrily addressed the foolowing harsh words to Indrajit: "O evil minded one! Born in a dynasty of Brahmanical sages, but belonging to Rakshasa race, you touched a lock of her hair, for your hair, for your own ruin.
vrm.6.81 Thus speaking, Hanuma surrounded as he was by Vanaras with their weapons and very much enraged, rushed headlong towards Indrajit.
vrm.6.81 Stirring up that army of mokeys with a multitude of his arrows, Indrajit replied to Hanuma, the foremost of mokeys as follows: "For whose sake, Sugreeva, yourself and Rama came here, I am going to kill Seetha now itself, while you stand looking on.
vrm.6.81 Having spoken thus to Hanuma, Indrajit personally killed that illusory Seetha, who ahd been sobbing all the while, with his sharp edged sword.
vrm.6.81 After killing that woman, Indrajit told Hanuma as follows: "See, I killed Rama s wife with my weapon.
vrm.6.82 Then, Hanuma the son of Marut spoke as follows to all those Vanaras, who were running away widely apart, looking dejected, miserable and frightened.
vrm.6.82 Hearing the words of that wise Hanuma, the Vanaras in a cheerful mood, took hold of mountain peaks and trees in a great fury.
vrm.6.82 They followed him, by surrounding Hanuma on all sides, in that great battle.
vrm.6.82 That Hanuma, being surrounded by those Vanara chiefs on all sides, began to consume that army of adversaries as a flaming fire.
vrm.6.82 That Hanuma, accompanied by his army of Vanaras, brought about the destruction of Rakshasas, as Yama the lord of death does at the time of universal dissolution.
vrm.6.82 Filled with inordinate grief and rage, that Hanuma the Vanara chief, threw a large rock on Indrajit s chariot.
vrm.6.82 The mighty Hanuma played a havoc among Rakshasas of terrible deeds, with Shala trees, distinguished by excellent trunks and branches as with rocks.
vrm.6.82 Keeping the hostile army back, that Hanuma spoke to those Vanaras as follows: "Retreat! This army need not be conquered any more by us.
vrm.6.82 Thus speaking and keeping back all the Vanaras, Hanuma the chief of Vanaras, with absence of fear, along with his army, gradually turned back.
vrm.6.82 Seeing Hanuma with drawing to the place where Rama was, the evil minded Indrajit went to a sanctuary called Nikumbhila, seeking to pour oblations into the sacred fire.
vrm.6.83 “O excellent Jambavan! From the way in which a very great terrible rattling sound of arms in heard, it seems an exceedingly difficult feat has been performed by Hanuma.
vrm.6.83 “O lord of Rikshas! Therefore, accompanied by your own army, go and quickly extend your help to that Hanuma, who is fighting.
vrm.6.83 Saying “Yes, so be it” and surrounded by his own army, Jambavan came to the western gate, where the Vanara, Hanuma was.
vrm.6.83 Thereupon, Jambavan saw Hanuma, coming with Vanaras, who had given fight and were sighing on account of grief caused by the destruction of Seetha.
vrm.6.83 Seeing that terrible army of Rikshas, looking like a dark cloud on their way, ready to perform battle and effectively intercepting it, Hanuma retreated them all.
vrm.6.83 Quickly seeking the presence of Rama with that army, the highly illustrious Hanuma, with sorrow, spoke the following words to Rama:
vrm.6.83 Hearing those words of Hanuma, Rama then was agitated with grief and fell down on the ground, like a tree with its bottom chopped off.
vrm.6.84 Fixing his gaze on Vibhishana’s face and looking at Sugreeva and those Vanaras, Lakshmana with tears pouring down, spoke the following words, with a splendid meaning: “O gentle Sir! Just on hearing through the words of Hanuma, saying that Seetha was killed by Indrajit, Rama entered into a swoon.
vrm.6.84 “I hold that which you have been told by Hanuma with a sorrowful temper, O ruler of men, to be absurd as the drying up of the sea.
vrm.6.85 Having known the toughness of the conjuring tricks of the evil minded adversary, Rama spoke to the illustrious Lakshmana as follows: "O Lakshmana! You, accompanied by that entire army which stands at the disposal of Sugreeva, along with troop commanders with Hanuma as their head and protected by Jambavan the lord of Rikshas, who will be accompanied by his army, kill that Indrajit the prince of Rakshasas, rich in the power of conjuring tricks.
vrm.6.85 Then, Hanuma accompanied by many a thousand of Vanaras and Vibhishana along with his counsellors went behind Lakshmana.
vrm.6.85 The valiant Lakshmana stood there along with Vibhishana, the heroic Angada and Hanuma, the son of Marut.
vrm.6.86 At that time, Hanuma the destroyer of enemies looking like a mountain, uplifted an absolutely unpaalleled large tree.
vrm.6.86 Immediately on seeing Hanuma destroying thier army rapidly, thousands of Rakshasas hurled weapons on him.
vrm.6.86 Approaching Hanuma looking like a mountain, the Rakshasas bearing pointed pikes struck him from all sides with pkes, those carrying swords in their hands with swords, those carring javelins in their hands with jalins, with iron rods with maces those armed with sharp edged spears with spears, as also with bright looking spears, with hundreds of cylindrical wooden pieces studded with iron spikes, with steel hammers, ,with awful axes, with slings for the rwing stones, with their thunderbolt like fists and slaps which fell like flashes of lighning.
vrm.6.86 Then, the enraged Hanuma made a colossal destruction of those Rakshasas.
vrm.6.86 That Indrajit saw Hanuma, the foremost of Vanaras, looking like a mountain, fearlessly killing his enemies.
vrm.6.86 Hearing the words of that Indrajit, the charioteer went, carrying that very unconquerable Indrajit sitting in the chariot, to the place where Hanuma was there.
vrm.6.86 Coming close to Hanuma, that unconquerable Indrajit hurled swords, sharp edged spears and axes on the head of Hanuma.
vrm.6.86 Receiving those terrible weapons, that Hanuma spoke, seized as he was, with great rage, the following words:
vrm.6.86 Coming nearer to Hanuma, you will not return alive.
vrm.6.86 Vibhishana told Lakshmana in the following words that while with bow upraised, Indrajit sought to kill Hanuma.
vrm.6.86 "Having seated in a chariot, Indrajit, who conquered Indra, is seeking to kill Hanuma.
vrm.6.88 Thus speaking, he struck Lakshmana with seven arrows and Hanuma with ten excellent sharp edged arrows.
vrm.6.89 That haughty Hanuma too who felt enraged, causing Lakshmana to descend from his back, and tearing up Sala tree from a mountain, approached the Rakshasas and himself began to destroy those Rakshasas in their thousands.
vrm.6.90 Vibhishana, Hanuma and Jambavan the chief of Rikshas were pleased at Lakshmana for his victor and applauded him too.
vrm.6.91 Having offered salutation to Jambavan, Hanuma and all those Vanaras, that valiant Lakshmana of great brilliance then quickly came from there to the place where Sugreeva and Rama were there, by leaning himself upon vibhishana and Hanuma.
vrm.6.91 Vibhishana and Hanuma too performed a great feat in the great battle.
vrm.6.92 "Those words of Hanuma were not acted upon by me, having a low mind.
vrm.6.93 Then, the virtuous Rama spoke also to Sugreeva, Vibhishana, Hanuma the Vanara, Jambavan, Mainda the foremost of Vanaras and even Dvivida, who were in close proximity to him as follows "Such wonderful power of this missile exists either with me or with the three eyed Rudra the lord of destruction.
vrm.6.99 "In the battle, I will cut down the tree in the shape of Rama, which is going to yield fruit through its flower in the form of Seetha, whose principal branches are Sugreeva, Jambavan, Kumuda, Nala, Dvivida, Mainda, Angada, Gandhamadana, Hanuma, Sushena and all the chiefs of Vanara warriors.
vrm.6.100 Ignoring those arrows and having embraced Lakshmana, Rama spoke to Hanuma and Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, as follows: "O the chiefs of Vanaras! Remain just encompassing Lakshmana.
vrm.6.101 Having addressed the words thus to Rama, the highly learned Sushena spoke the following words to Hanuma the great Vanara, who was standing nearby: "Proceeding from this place with full speed, O gentle one!, to the mountain called Oushadhi Mahodaya, which was already described to you previously by Jambavan, O brave one! Bring here for restoring the great souled and heroic Lakshmana to consciousness, the precious herb Vishalyakarani by name which was sprung up on its southern peak, Savarnakarnani Samjivakarani and the precious herb, Samdhanakarani
vrm.6.101 Hearing those words, Hanuma, having sprung to Mount Oushadhi, could not identify those precious herbs and became thoughtful.
vrm.6.101 The following thought arose to that Hanuma, whose strength was unlimited: "I will go back, taking this mountain peak itself.
vrm.6.101 Thinking thus, the mighty Hanuma the excellent of Vanaras, having gone quickly and approaching that excellent mountain, taking that mountain peak with his arms, shaking it violently for three times and uprooting the mountain peak, which was endowed with many trees in bloom, lifted it up, so mighty as he was.
vrm.6.101 Arriving with a great speed, Hanuma putting down the mountain peak and resting for a while, spoke the following words to Sushena: "O the excellent of Vanaras! I have brought the entire mountain peak, as I could not identify those herbs.
vrm.6.101 Eulogizing Hanuma, who was thus narrating his trip, Sushena, the excellent of Vanaras, pulling out the herbs, took hold off them.
vrm.6.101 All those Vanara chiefs and even the Gods were surprised to see that most difficult feat of Hanuma.
vrm.6.111 "We felt painful, the moment Hanuma penetrated, by dint of his prowess, deep into the City of Lanka, which was difficult to be entered even for Gods.
vrm.6.111 We felt perturbed, the moment Hanuma penetrated, by dint of his prowess, deeply into the City of Lanka, which was difficult to be entered even for Gods.
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.6.112 Thereupon, Rama spoke the following words to the valiant Hanuma the Vanara who was equal in size to a mountain and who was standing in humility, with his hands joined in salutation.
vrm.6.112 "O Hanuma, the proficient one in speech! Inform Seetha that myself together with Lakshmana and Sugreeva are well and that Ravana had been killed in battle.
vrm.6.112 "O Hanuma the master of Vanaras! Making clear this favourite news to Seetha, you ought to return, taking back her message.
vrm.6.113 Thus directed by Rama, Hanuma the son of Marut, entered deeply into the City of Lanka, being respectfully received by the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.113 That Hanuma, the Vanara, known to Seetha, having entered the City of Lanka, seeking permission from Vibhishana, getting approval from him and entering Ashoka grove as per the prevailing regulation, saw at the foot of a tree, Seetha, who was bereft of freshness, looking joylessly like a frightened cow and surrounded with female Rakshasas.
vrm.6.113 Even after seeing the mighty Hanuma who came there, Seetha kept herself silent.
vrm.6.113 Seeing her cool face, Hanuma the excellent Vanara began to narrate the entire message of Rama.
vrm.6.113 Thereupon, Hanuma spoke to Seetha, who was not making any answer as follows: “O divine lady! What are you reflecting upon? Why don’t you speak to me?” Thus asked by Hanuma, Seetha, who was ever established in a righteous path, was very much delighted and spoke as follows in a voice choked with tears.
vrm.6.113 Hearing the words of Seetha, Hanuma standing with his face turned towards Seetha and with his hands joined in salutation, joyfully replied as follows: "O faultless lady, interested in things agreeable and beneficial to husband and wishing for his victory! You alone deserve to speak such words filled with affection.
vrm.6.113 Hearing those words of Hanuma, Seetha the daughter of Janaka thereupon spoke the following auspicious words to Hanuma.
vrm.6.113 Thereafter, having joined his hands together in salutation, standing in front of Seetha in humility and free from flurry, Hanuma again spoke to Seetha as follows: “If you permit me, I wish to kill of all these notorious female Rakshasas, by whom you have been frightened earlier.
vrm.6.113 Reflecting as pondering for a while, when spoke thus by Hanuma, the compassionate Seetha, who was kind to the miserable, spoke to Hanuma as follows:
vrm.6.113 “O the great armed Hanuma! Do not speak like this.
vrm.6.113 “O Hanuma! As commanded by Ravana the threatened me.
vrm.6.113 “O Hanuma! There is an old axim possessed of merit, actually uttered by a bear in the presence of a tiger.
vrm.6.113 Hearing the words of Seetha, Hanuma who was skilled in speech, then replied to the faultless Seetha, Ramas’ consort as follows: “O divine lady! You are the apt wife of Rama, full of virtue.
vrm.6.113 Thus spoken by Hanuma, that Seetha the daughter of Janaka spoke as follows: “O the foremost of Vanaras! I long to see my husband.
vrm.6.113 Hearing those words of Seetha, the highly intelligent Hanuma, the son of Marut, bringing delight to Seetha, spoke the following words: “You shall see today, Rama whose countenance is like a full moon, whose friends like Sugreeva and Vibhishana are alive, whose enemies have been killed along with Lakshmana, as Shachi the consort of Indra would see Indra the lord of Gods.
vrm.6.113 Thus speaking to that Seetha, who appeared radiant before his eyes as Lakshmi the goddess of prosperity, Hanuma of great splendor, came to the place where Rama was.
vrm.6.113 Then, Hanuma the excellent of Vanaras speedily narrated, in order of sequence, the message given by Seetha, to Rama who was equal to Indra.
vrm.6.114 Having offered his salutation to that Rama, who was excellent among all the wielders of the bow and whose eyes resembled the lotus petals, that highly intelligent Hanuma spoke to him as follows:
vrm.6.114 Hearing Hanuma s words, Rama who was the foremost among the supporters of righteousness, was a little over whelmed with tears and suddenly became a bit thoughtful.
vrm.6.114 Hearing the words of Rama, Lakshmana Sugreeva and Hanuma the Vanara then felt very much perturbed.
vrm.6.115 "What is the use of a prowess, however great, of that weak minded man who does not wipe out, by his energy, the insult fallen to his lot?" "The praise worthy act of Hanuma in the form of crossing of the ocean and the destroying of Lanka, has borne fruit today.
vrm.6.116 "O king! Hanuma, the great hero, was sent by you as your search agent.
vrm.6.123 Here, Dhumraksha was killed by Hanuma, the Vanara.
vrm.6.123 "O Seetha! See the golden mountain, Mainaka which rose passing through the ocean, in order to provide rest and relaxation to Hanuma.
vrm.6.124 "O Rama, devoted to virtue! Even the appearance of Maricha, the abduction of Seetha by Ravana, the sight of Kabandha, your arrival at the Pampa lake, your alliance with Sugreeva, how Vali was killed by you, the search operation for Seetha, the exploit of Hanuma, the tracing of Seetha, how the bridge, Nalasetu was constructed over the sea, how the City of Lanka was set fire by the rejoiced Vanara chiefs, how that Ravana who was the thorn in the side of Gods and how was arrogant of his might, was killed in battle, with his sons kinsfolk and his ministers as the Gods happened, how a boon was conferred by them on you all this is known to me by virtue of my asceticism.
vrm.6.125 Having thus contemplated, the sagacious and the glorious Rama then cast his glimpse on the Vanaras and spoke to Hanuma, the Vanara as follows: “O the foremost of the Vanaras! Going with all speed to Ayodhya, find out whether the people there, are safe in the royal palace.
vrm.6.125 “O gentle Hanuma! Inform to Bharata, of me as having come near Ayodhya, along with Vibhishana and Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras.
vrm.6.125 “O Hanuma! Understanding his mind and perception, you ought to return quickly, before we are not gone for a long distance towards Ayodhya.
vrm.6.125 Assuming a human form, when thus commanded by Rama, Hanuma the son of Marut, swiftly left for Ayodhya.
vrm.6.125 Hanuma, the son of Vayu then flew up with speed towards Ayodhya, as Garuda the eagle would fly with speed, while seeking to catch a large snake.
vrm.6.125 Leaping into the auspicious sky, the dwelling place of Birds, duly crossing over the terrific conjunction of Ganga and Yamuna rivers, reaching Shringaverapura and approaching Guha the chief of Nishadas, that valiant Hanuma spoke the following words in a charming voice: “Along with Seetha and Lakshmana, Rama, your friend, that scion of Kakuthsa, of true prowess, has for his part enquired of your welfare.
vrm.6.125 That swift moving Hanuma, with his rejoicingly feather like body and with a great splendor, not thinking of his fatigue, sprang up with a great speed.
vrm.6.125 Hanuma saw, on the way, Ramatirtha, a place of descent into the river as well as the rivers Valukini, Varuthini and Gomati as also the formidable forest of Sala trees, many thousands of people and numerous communities.
vrm.6.125 At a distance of two miles from Ayodhya Hanuma saw Bharata, living in a hermitage, with the bark trees and the skin of a black antelope wrapped round his waist, looking miserable and emaciated, wearing matted locks on his head, his limbs coated with dirt, afflicted through separation from Rama his elder brother, subsisting on roots and fruits, with his senses subdued, engaged in austerities, protecting virtue, with a very high head of matted hair, covering his body with the bark of trees and a deer skin, disciplined, whose thoughts were fixed on the Supreme Spirit, with a splendour equalling that of a Brahmanical sage, ruling the earth after placing the wooden sandals before him, protecting the people belonging to all the four grades viz.
vrm.6.125 With joined palms in salutation, Hanuma the son of Vayu spoke as follows to that Bharata, who knew what is right and seemed to be a second Dharma the god of virtue clothed with a body of virtue: Rama", for whom you are repenting residing as he was in the forest of Dandaka wearing the bark of trees and matted locks, has enquired about your welfare.
vrm.6.125 Hearing the words of Hanuma, Bharata the son of Kaikeyi, felt delighted and sank all at once to the ground as also fainted through joy.
vrm.6.125 Thereupon, Bharata who was born in Raghu dynasty, got up from the swoon within a while and regaining his consciousness, spoke the following words to Hanuma, who spoke pleasant tidings to him.
vrm.6.125 Embracing Hanuma with eagerness, the illustrious Bharata bathed him with copious tear drops born of delight and as such, other than those born of anguish.
vrm.6.125 Hearing the news of Rama s arrival resembling a womnder, from Hanuma, Bharata the prince felt overjoyed by a desire to see Rama and spoke the following words again with delight:
vrm.6.126 Seated comfortably on a cushion and interrogated by Bharata, Hanuma thereupon began to narrate the entire exploits of Rama in the forest.
vrm.6.126 "Gladdened to hear Rama s impending return to Ayodhya in the sweet words of Hanuma, Bharata offered his salutation by joining his palms together and spoke the following words, which enraptured his mind: My desire has been fulfilled indeed after a long time
vrm.6.127 ”Hearing the news of a great happiness from Hanuma, Bharata the truly brave ruler and the destroyer of enemies, commanded as follows to Shatrughna, who too felt delighted at the news.
vrm.6.127 Glancing round, Bharata spoke as follows to Hanuma.
vrm.6.127 When these remarks were uttered by Bharata, Hanuma forthwith replied, as follows to Bharata of unfailing prowess, by his meaningful words which were, as if they were apprising the situation.
vrm.6.128 Sugreeva and Hanuma, having splendour similar to that of Indra, after taking their bat, wore beautiful raiment as well as sparkling ear rings and started.
vrm.6.128 Then, Rama narrated about his friendship established with Sugreeva, the power of Hanuma and the great act of Vanaras to his ministers.
vrm.6.128 Jambavan, Hanuma, a Vanara called Vegadarshi and Rishabha brought water jars filled with water.
vrm.6.128 Looking towards Hanuma the Vanara, Seetha, daughter of Janaka, having taken off the pearl string from her neck, repeatedly caught the glimpse of all the Vanaras and her husband.
vrm.6.128 The black eyed Seetha gave that pearl necklace to Hanuma.
vrm.6.128 Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras, by wearing that necklace, which was as white as a heap of moonlight beams, shone brilliantly as a mountain silvered by a white cloud.
vrm.6.128 Rama, who was unwearied in action, then suitably honoured Vibhishana, Sugreeva, Hanuma, Jambavan and all other eminent Vanaras with desired objects and abundant gifts.
