vrm.1.5 That Ayodhya is an impassable one for trespassers, or for others invaders, owing to her impassable and profound moats, and she is abounding with Horses, Camels, likewise with Cows and Donkeys.
vrm.1.6 None with meagre accumulations is there in that great city and no householder is there without unearned means, and without Cows, Horses, monies or cereals and who could not sustain his family.
vrm.1.6 That city is full with best Horses born in countries like Kaamboja, Baahlika, Vanaayu, and also in river bed counties, which are like the Horse of Indra namely ucChiashrava.
vrm.1.13 "For Horses stables, reposing stalls for Elephants, like that great billets for soldiers may be built for those foreign country dwellers arriving in here on their Horses and Elephants along with their soldiers.
vrm.1.18 Rama is admittedly a champion of riding Elephants and Horses, also in tactical charioting, and he rejoices in the art of archery, and absorbed in the obedient service of his father.
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.1.53 b, a I will grant you eight hundred golden chariots whichever can be yoked on with four whitely white Horses trimmed up with the sets of tintinnabulating bells.
vrm.1.53 b, a I grant you, oh, superbly vowed sage, eleven thousand fleetly galloping Horses of high pedigree born in best countries of best Horse breeding.
vrm.1.53 truly, this alone is my treasure, thus I do not require your gilded chariots, Horses or Elephants.
vrm.1.54 This Akshauhini unit of army is plethoric, overcrowded with Elephants, Horses, and chariots, and overspread with flags and Elephants, thereby he is mightier than me.
vrm.1.55 "At that very moment, oh, Rama the legatee of Raghu, Vishvamitra s army comprising foot soldiers, Elephants, chariots and Horses is utterly slaughtered by the Yavana, Mleccha etc.
vrm.1.55 "That sage with vital spirit, Vashishta, then in a wink rendered those sons of Vishvamitra, along with their Horses, chariots, and foot soldiers to ashes.
vrm.1.68 Those envoys who are clearly ordered by Janaka entered the city of Ayodhya on sojourning for three nights en route, and whose Horses are overtired for they are galloped so fast to loose no time.
vrm.1.69 and with those that can be yoked with Horses, like cabined coaches and Horse carriages.
vrm.1.69 and let Horses be yoked to my royal cariole, and as the messengers of Janaka are hastening me arrange for the travel without time lapse.
vrm.1.70 By the order of the king those envoys who have speedy Horses have travelled on to city Saankaasya speedily, to lead forth that manly tiger Kushadhvaja that speedily, which is as good as fetching Vishnu by order of Indra.
vrm.1.74 He has also given umpteen number of Cows, millions of excellent shawls and silk dresses, and Elephants, Horses, chariots, foot soldiers, besides hundreds of highly decorated girls, divine in their mien, as unexcelled chambermaids and handmaidens to the brides.
vrm.2.1 He was efficient in riding and taming of Elephants and Horses.
vrm.2.7 The Elephants and Horses were also merry.
vrm.2.14 All types of seeds, fragrant substances and precious stones of various kinds, honey, curd, clarified butter, parched grains of paddy, blades of Darbha grass, flowers, milk, eight beautiful virgins an Elephant in rut, a glorious chariot with four Horses, a special kind of sword called Nistrimsa, an excellent bow a palanquin with bearers an umbrella resembling the moon a pair of white chowries, a golden jug, a white bull with large humo on its back, an excellent lion with beautiful mane with large canine teeth, a throne, a tiger skin, fire with ignition all varieties of musical instruments,courtesans, women decked with ornaments, teachers, brahmanas, Cows, animals and Birds which are sacred, the best of citizens and men of country side, merchants along with their followers, all these and many other retainers speaking kind words, along with kings stand waiting for Rama s coronation.
vrm.2.15 That Sumantra with chariot fastened with Horses and having a top, approached towards Rama s palace, beautifying the human and the royal races, gladdened the hearts of all citizens.
vrm.2.16 Excellent Horses looking like infantine Elephants were tied to the chariot, which was moving quickly.
vrm.2.16 Thereupon, hundreds and thousands of important people mounted on excellent Horses and soldiers mounted on Elephants, then followed Rama.
vrm.2.16 While bards and panegyrists were moving in front praising with great respect, invoking blessings and eulogised by the most excellent instrumentalists, Rama, like Kubera the god of wealth, went with resounding Horses and Elephants.
vrm.2.16 It was full of male and female Elephants, Horses and chariots.
vrm.2.18 "Let Bharata rule this earth, by residing in Ayodhya filled with various types of precious thing together with Horses, chariots and Elephants.
vrm.2.19 Why indeed the king is thus slowly shedding tears, with eyes gazed upon the floor?" "Let messengers go now itself on fleet Horses to bring Bharata from maternal uncle s house as per orders of the king.
vrm.2.19 Messengers can go on Horses having rapid speed, to bring back Bharata from his maternal uncle s house.
vrm.2.23 This earth will become impermeable, uninhabited with heads hands and thighs of Elephants Horses and men crushed, having been hit by my sword.
vrm.2.23 "As I stand holding a bow with fingers wound with shields made of allegator skin, how any man will fancy himself a hero among men?" "While I overpower one with many arrows and many with a single arrow, I discharge my arrows at vitals of men, Horses and Elephants.
vrm.2.26 Why the main carriage used for travelling and pleasure, tied with four Horses decked with gold ornaments and with excellent speed does not go ahead of you
vrm.2.39 Regaining consciousness after a moment, the king, with his eyes filled with tears, spoke these words to Sumantra: "You come with a chariot, fit for driving, yoked with excellent Horses and take this highly distinguished prince beyond this territory.
vrm.2.39 Sumantra obeying the words of the king, walked away quickly and arrived there fitted with Horses, a chariot duly decorated.
vrm.2.39 The charioteer told the prince with joined palms about that chariot decorated by gold, fitted wih superb Horses.
vrm.2.40 Even so for the two brothers, keeping the sets of weapon, an armour of hard make with leather cover in the midst of the chariot, Sumantra saw the three of whom Seetha constituted the third mounted and quickly drove the Horses which were highly admired, with their swiftness resembling the velocity of wind.
vrm.2.40 The city of Ayodhya is filled with flurry, with its Elephants intoxicated in rut and highly excited and resonant with tinkling of ornaments of Horses.
vrm.2.40 Having down towards sides and back of the chariot with their faces turned towards Rama and with their faces filled with tears, all those people said with loud voices to Sumantra thus: "Hold in the reins of the Horses and go slowly and slowly, Oh charioteer! We would behold the face of Rama, which would be henceforth difficult to behold for us" "The heart of Rama s mother Kausalya is surely and undoubtedly made of iron, since it does not get broken when Rama resembling an offspring of Gods is going to the forest"
vrm.2.40 The charioteer, doing as per Rama s words, took leave of those citizens and drive the Horses more speedily even while they are going.
vrm.2.41 Afflicted by fear and grief, the earth with its mountains, deprived of that great souled Rama, suffered a terrible convulsion, as when it is abandoned by Indra the lord of rain, and a great uproar reigned in the city which was filled with Elephants, warriors and Horses.
vrm.2.42 Knowing that his son reached the end of the city, he said as follows: “The marks of hooves of excellent Horses which carried away my child are seen on the way.
vrm.2.45 “Indeed all things, which are endowed with ears, more so Horses, stand appraised of our entreaty.
vrm.2.45 While those brahmanas were crying thus with a view to persuading Rama to return, the river Tamasa appeared there, as though retarding the progress of Rama Thereafter Sumantra the charioteer too released the Horses, tired as they were, from the chariot and quickly making them roll, allowed them to graze not very far from the bank of Tamasa once they had drunk water and had their body washed in the river.
vrm.2.46 Though there are various kinds of wild fruits and roots, this is indeed a liking for me” Thus telling Lakshmana, Rama spoke also to Sumantra as follows: “Oh, gentle man! Attend to the Horses carefully.
vrm.2.46 The sun having completely set, Sumantra tied up the Horses, supplied them with abundant grass and immediately stood nearest to Rama.
vrm.2.46 Then, Sumantra quickly fastened the chariot to its excellent Horses and thereafter submitted with joined palms to Rama as follows: “Oh, mighty armed prince! Your chariot is kept ready.
vrm.2.46 The charioteer urged the Horses along the route by which they can reach a grove suited to the practice of austerities.
vrm.2.49 Seeing villages, whose outskirts have been tilled and the woodlands laden with blossoms and hearing as follows the words of men dwelling together in the midst of the village, Rama proceeded apace in those excellent Horses as though slowly engrossed as he was in enjoying the sights.
vrm.2.49 Reaching the other bank of Gomati river with the help of the swift moving Horses, Rama crossed the river called Syandika which had resounded with howls of peacocks and swans.
vrm.2.50 Saying ‘so be it’ and nothing more to Rama, Lakshmana and Sumantra too then directed the Horses to that sacred fig tree.
vrm.2.50 Sumantra too dismounted from the chariot, unyoked the superb Horses after which with joined palms, he seated himself near Rama at the foot of the tree.
vrm.2.50 “Here have arrived various kinds of dishes, drinks and syrups as also excellent beds for you to sleep on and food for your Horses” To Guha who was speaking as aforesaid, Rama replied thus: “We stand honored by you, by your very visit to us on foot, as well as your show of affection and are pleased with you” Pressing gently with his muscular arms, Rama spoke these words: Oh, Guha! Thank heaven that I am seeing you in good health with your relatives.
vrm.2.50 “I desire nothing but a little forage for the Horses.
vrm.2.50 “These Horses were cherished by the king Dasaratha, my father.
vrm.2.50 I shall feel honored by these Horses being duly fed.
vrm.2.50 Then Guha on that spot commanded his men as follows: “Let water for drinking and forage be supplied promptly to Horses” Having worshipped the evening twilight appearing in the west, with an upper garment made of barkon his person Rama then took for food only water brought by Lakshmana himself.
vrm.2.51 People will joyfully move in the capital belonging to my father and the city with its quadrangular places allocated at lovely sites, and well aligned roads, rich in mansions of well to do men, temples and royal palaces adorned with the foremost of courtesans, its chariots Horses and Elephants that obstruct the roads, the musical instruments that resound there full of all blessings and crowded with merry and well fed men, well provided with gardens and royal parks and bright with festivities carried on under the patronage of associations.
vrm.2.52 How can I tell, ‘I abandoned your son in the forest’, which words are true but unkind?” “How will the excellent Horses obedient to me, which carried yourself, Sita and Lakshmana, draw the chariot bereft of you?”
vrm.2.52 I wish to hear your loving assent with the words ‘be my close associate!" “Oh, hero! If these Horses too can render service to you, they can attain a supreme abode.
vrm.2.57 Sumantra, being allowed to depart by Rama, tied excellent Horses to the chariot and with intense anguish, rode towards the very city of Ayodhya.
vrm.2.57 Beholding Ayodhya as if deserted in silence, Sumantra becoming very much distressed in mind and having afflicted with intense anguish, surmised as follows: “I hope the city of Ayodhya with its Elephants, Horses, people and the kings was not burnt away by a fire of sorrow and blazing grief towards Rama.
vrm.2.57 Sumantra, thus lost in thought, reaching the city gate through the fast running Horses, entered the city quickly.
vrm.2.59 Rama“ having departed to the forest, Horses on the return path however, shedding warm tears, did not proceed further on the way.
vrm.2.59 “Oh, emperor! The city of Ayodhya with its joy less people, with its Elephants and Horses looking miserable, with sighing exhaustion due to cries of pain, filled with sounds of moaning, cheerless and feeling anguish due to Ramas’ exile, appears to me, like Queen Kausalya without her son.
vrm.2.67 “In a rulerless land, people beautifully adorned, cannot go fast cheerfully in excellent Horses and chariots.
vrm.2.68 Hence messengers in fast running Horses are to be sent quickly to bring back those heroic brothers.
vrm.2.68 “After starting quickly from here by traveling in rapidly running Horses, you reach the city of Rajagriha.
vrm.2.68 “Go quickly, taking silk clothes and excellent ornaments to the king and to Bharata The messengers, who are going to leave for the land of Kekayas, took sufficient eatables required on their way and went to their respective houses, by riding on their admirable Horses.
vrm.2.68 Those messengers, though riding on tired Horses on a long route, reached quickly and safely to the excellent city of Girivraja.
vrm.2.70 While Bharata was narrating his dream, the messengers whose Horses were tired, entered the beautiful city called Rajagriha, which has too big a palace gate and met the king Kekaya and the prince Yudhajit, who received them hospitably.
vrm.2.70 The king Kekaya generously gave as gifts to Bharata, two thousands coins of gold and sixteen hundred Horses.
vrm.2.70 The glorious Bharata crossed his very big palace, augmented with men Elephants and Horses and entered the excellent royal high way.
vrm.2.70 With more than hundred chariots variegated with jewels yoked to Camels, bullocks, Horses and mules as also servants followed Bharata as he departed.
vrm.2.71 Making cool the limbs of the tired Horses by bathing there and cheering up them, nay, taking a bath himself, drinking some water and carrying it for future use, Bharata proceeded further.
vrm.2.71 Having reached Sala and Kadamba trees, Bharata yoked swifter Horses to his chariot, allowed his army to come after him and quickly went ahead.
vrm.2.71 Bharata, after crossing Sthanumati river at Ekasala village and Gomati river at Vinata village, took rest at a grove of Sala trees at Kalinga city as the Horses were very much tired and then proceeded quickly.
vrm.2.71 “Here, as before, important persons indeed are not seen going into the city or coming out it in carriages or on Horses or on Elephants.
vrm.2.71 Bharata, with his tiered Horses entered the city through Vaijayanta gate.
vrm.2.71 “I am seeing the family Horses in which dirt is not swept away, with their doors wide open, bereft of splendor on all sides without any offerings being made, and with no incense burned
vrm.2.75 “This vast kingdom, endowed with Elephants, Horses and chariots and stock piled with grains and riches, has been made over to you by her.
vrm.2.75 “May the sin of him, who fails to observe the code of warfare followed by the virtuous in a battle abundantly provided with Elephants Horses chariots weapons and men, be his with whose counsel my elder brother went to exile.
vrm.2.81 There was a huge hallooing sound generated while the people invited were coming on chariots, Horses and Elephants.
vrm.2.82 Those army generals urged the entire army to march forward quickly, with the fast moving Horses, bullock carts with a good speed and the chariots along with the warriors.
vrm.2.82 Bowing to the command of Bharata and taking a chariot yoked with excellent Horses, Sumantra on his part approached him with delight.
vrm.2.82 Thereupon, from every house, warriors merchants, Shudras and Brahmanas rose up and harnessed their chariots to Camels, mules, well bred Elephants and Horses.
vrm.2.83 All the ministers and priests ascended, chariots yoked with Horses, resembling those of the sun, and went ahead of Bharata.
vrm.2.83 Having gone for a considerable distance in their chariots, carts, Horses and Elephants, they reached the River Ganga close to the city of Shringaverapura, where the valiant Guha, a bosom friend of Rama along with multitude of relatives was ruling that region carefully.
vrm.2.86 "They will joyfully inhabit my father capital City, with its pleasant cross roads and meeting places, with its main roads well laid out, sumptuous with large houses and lofty mansions, with all the gems they are encrusted, with Elephants Horses and chariots that abound there, the sound of trumpets with which the city resonates, the many diversions it contains, its properous and well fed people, its luxurious gardens and parks as well as the assmeblies and festivals that continuously take place inti.
vrm.2.88 "Without guards to watch over its ramparts, with its unrestrained Horses and Elephants, with its city gates laid open, without any defenders, denuded of its happy army, plunged in desolation in difficulties and exposed, that royal capital of Ayodhya will be shunned like poisoned food even by the enemies.
vrm.2.89 Some were loaded with Horses and some of them ferried animals of draught of great value.
vrm.2.91 "O, Venerable One! Either the king or the prince should always keep away from the places occupied by ascetics" "O, Holy one! Spirited Horses, men and rare Elephants in rut covering an immense area are accompanying me.
vrm.2.91 Splendid square mansions with stables for Elephants and Horses as well as resplendent gates with watch towers flanked by turrets were seen.
vrm.2.91 The keepers of animals fed Horses, Elephants, Donkeys, Camels and bullocks the offspring of Surabhi the divine cow with their suitable feed.
vrm.2.91 Elephants, Donkeys, Camels, bullocks, Horses, animals and Birds there were suitably well fed.
vrm.2.91 Those soldiers saw there heaps of twings used for cleaning the teeth with white brushes at their tips, white sandal pastes stored in caskets, polished mirrors, piles of Clothes, thousands of pairs of shoes and sandals, caskets containing collyrium for the eyes combs, brushed, raiments bows, protectors of vitals, strange couches and seats, drinking ponds for Donkeys Camels Elephants and Horses, lakes with good stairs for descent having water lilies and lotuses with sky blue colour, with clear water offering a comfortable bath and soft grasses having a colour of Nipa tree and of cat s eye gems useful for feeding animals.
vrm.2.92 "O, the illustrious chief of army! Direct the forces filled with Elephants Horses and chariots either towards the southern route or to the left proceeding southward.
vrm.2.92 Then, setting out for their destination, countless people ascended many excellent chariots, decorated with gold, duly harnessed to Horses.
vrm.2.92 That vast army with its countless Elephants Horses and chariots proceeded, covering the southern direction, like a great cloud that has risen in the sky and on the other bank of the Ganges, by mountains and streams, crossing the woods inhabited by deer and Birds.
vrm.2.92 That army of Bharata, with its squadrons of rejoicing Elephants Horses and warriors, penetrating into the vast forest, frightening innumerable beasts and Birds, appeared resplendent there.
vrm.2.93 Submerged by the waves of Horses and Elephants of great speed at that time, the earth became invisible for a long time.
vrm.2.93 "Behold, O Shatrughna, this mountain, hitherto frequented by Kinnaras, now teaming with Horses on every side, as a sea is infested by allegators.
vrm.2.93 "The dust raised from the hooves of the Horses blots out the heavens, but the wind carries it away immediately as if to give me pleasure.
vrm.2.93 "Behold, O Shatrughna, these chariots yoked with Horses and mounted by the chief charioteers are rushing together rapidly in the forest.
vrm.2.96 Lakshmana informed Rama about that army which was full of Horses, Elephants and chariots decorated with flags and spoke the following words also.
vrm.2.96 Among the cavalry, some are cavorting merrily on their swift Horses, while others are beaming with delight, mounted on their Elephants.
vrm.2.96 "The Elephants and Horses whose breasts were laid open with my darts and the men too struck down by me, be dragged about by savage beasts.
vrm.2.97 "O, warrior! See those two excellent Horses of noble breed, shining attractively and vying with the wind in swiftness.
vrm.2.97 That royal army of Ikshvaku race, crowded with Elephants Horses and chariots was encamped around the edge of the mountain occupying an area of one Yojana and a half.
vrm.2.100 "I hope you preserve the City of Ayodhya, furnished with everything and flourishing, that was formerly inhabited by our heroic ancestors, O my dear brother, that is worthy of its name, with its fortified gates, its Elephant Horses and chariots that fill it, with its brahmins, warriors and merchants in thousands, ever engaged in their respective duties, with its noble citizens self controlled and full of energy, with its palaces in various shapes and the learned who abound there.
vrm.2.100 I hope you are not simply satisfied with the existing population of female Elephants, Horses and male Elephants.
vrm.2.103 Some went on their Horses, some others on their Elephants, some in their chariots covered with ornaments while the youthful people went on foot.
vrm.2.114 Ayodhya looked like an afflicted army, shattered of its armour in a major conflict, whose ensigns borne on Horses, Elephants and chariots had been torn, and its heroic warriors slain.
vrm.2.114 "O, Sumantra! I do not hear, as before, the sound of the Horses, the sound of the intoxicating Elephants and the clattering of the great chariots in this city now.
vrm.2.115 When Bharata had left, the army too, abounding in Elephants, Horses and chariots marched unbidden.
vrm.2.117 "The dry dung of Horses and Elephants of that high souled Bharata s encamped army caused much spoliation around here.
vrm.3.5 Rama saw at his very nearby a chariot yoked with green Horses that traverses in firmament, which in its splendour is either like the noontime sun, or a cluster of silver clouds, or like the silvern sphere of the moon.
vrm.3.5 b, "Of which Horses we have earlier heard from our teachers telling that they belong to Indra, the Chief Invitee in Vedic rituals, they are these divinely green Horses that now abide in the firmament, and definitely these must be IndrasHorses.
vrm.3.5 Then that Enemy destroyer Indra adoringly bade farewell to the sage, and travelled to heavens by the chariot with its green Horses.
vrm.3.14 Rohini" gave birth to Cows, Gandharvi gave birth to Horses, Surasa gave birth to Nagaa s, while Kadru gave birth to Pannagas.
vrm.3.22 While Khara is saying thus Duushana heralded saying, "Here comes the great chariot with sun s dazzle, yoked with very good Horses of variegated colours.
vrm.3.22 That chariot which has a roomy cabin with its rooftop like that of the ridge of Mountain Meru, body embellished in gold, wheels golden, gem studded yoke to carriage shaft, all around encompassed with golden artefacts like fishes, flowers, trees, mountains, sun, moon, and auspicious Birds flocks and stars, and even decorated with jingle bells, endowed with flags, swords, and best Horses, and such as it is, Khara embarked on it with all his rancour.
vrm.3.22 Then the charioteer set spurs on those colourful Horses that are adorned in polished gold according to the notions of Khara.
vrm.3.23 The highly speedy Horses paired to Khara s chariot have tottered in a trice, even though that place on the highway is with even surface and spread with flowers.
vrm.3.25 On the orders of Khara the charioteer drove the Horses to there where the mighty armed Rama is standing single handedly while swaying his bow.
vrm.3.25 b, With the arrows flung from the bow bowstring nimbus of Rama, he indeed shredded and scraped the Horses hitched with golden harnesses, and the chariots to which they are yoked, and even their charioteers.
vrm.3.25 Likewise, he even ripped off the Elephants along with their riders, and the Horses along with their cavaliers.
vrm.3.25 Numerous Horses and Elephants are felled.
vrm.3.26 b, a That valiant one in warring Rama is then infuriated and with his crescent barbed arrow shivered the sturdy bow of Duushana, shredding four of his Horses with four more arrows.
vrm.3.26 b, a On destructing the Horses with excruciating arrows, he even fragmented the head of the charioteer with a crescent barbed arrow, and even impaled the chest of Rakshasa Duushana with some more arrows.
vrm.3.26 With his bow fractured and chariot shredded, and with Horses and charioteer killed, he that Duushana grabbed a mace which outranks a peak of mountain and a hair thriller at its sight, and which girt with golden girths once gritted the armies of Gods, the head of which is studded with incisive iron spikes and saturated with the fat of foes, a coequal of a diamond and a thunderbolt in its hardiness and flashiness, and a ransacker of the archways of fortresses of his adversaries.
vrm.3.27 Trishira with a lustrous chariot that is yoked with equally lustrous Horses hurried towards Rama in that war, like a tri peaked mountain, for they say, he is a tri headed Rakshasa.
vrm.3.27 a With four of his straight shooting arrows that have hook like barbs, that resplendent Rama hewed down four of the speedy Horses of Trishira s chariot.
vrm.3.28 That mighty Raghava who equals Indra in combats, smiling at the warfare of Khara, smashed the yoke of the chariot with one arrow with four, four of the dappled Horses with the sixth, the head of the charioteer of Khara with three, the three pronged shaft from yoke to the base of chariot with two the axels, thus that chariot is fragmented.
vrm.3.28 With his bow utterly shattered, chariot fragmented, Horses killed, and charioteer felled, that Khara then hopped down to ground from the dilapidated chariot wielding a mace, and stood fast.
vrm.3.29 "Although you hold sway over a gigantic force abounding with Elephants Horses and chariots, you have perpetrated heinous deeds in Dandaka forests that are loathsome to all the worlds, that is unseemliest to this soldiery.
vrm.3.31 Saying so Ravana journeyed in a chariot that is yoked with mule like Horses, and that has the dazzling of the sun, whereby all the directions are made to glitter.
vrm.3.35 When that brisk paced charioteer is said in this way he instantly harnessed the favourite and choicest chariot of Ravana with Horses and got it ready.
vrm.3.35 On seeing the delightful, serene, and marvellous cascades, and cities that are abundant in wealth and agricultural produce, and abundant with gemlike womenfolk, and that are replete with Elephants, Horses, and chariots, Ravana proceeded further.
vrm.3.41 "The ministers with drastic notions will indeed fall apart together with their king, like a chariot that gets ramshackled together with it charioteer on a rough road, though it is hieing with galloping Horses but badly controlled by that slothful charioteer.
vrm.3.48 "It is encumbered with Elephants, Horses and chariots, well sounded by the sounds of trumpets, and with trees which yield fruits that fulfil all the savours, and it is bedecked with chirrupy pleasure gardens.
vrm.3.51 Now Ravana who is with his devastated bow, devoid of chariot, dispatched are his Horses and departed is his charioteer, and such as he is, he on grabbing Vaidehi by her torso, or, placing her on the lower end of his torso, jumped to earth.
vrm.3.71 "Oh, Rama, soon you have to toss me into trench to burn me customarily, sooner than the Sun s going to Mountain Dusk when his Horses are fatigued.
vrm.4.14 And deer are hurriedly fleeing like war worsted Horses, and the sky flying Birds are falling to ground like planets or stars when their merit diminishes.
vrm.4.42 "On which mountain the distinguished Mahendra, whose Horses are green and who is the controller of Paka, is anointed by Gods as their king, such a mountain is this named Mountain Megha, or Mountain Meghavanta, which you have to scour.
vrm.5.4 The great Hanuma entered secretly Ravana s inner city which was equal to paradise, rendered noisy by neighing of Horses and tinkling of ornaments, by chariots, vehicles and aerial cars and decorated by auspicious Elephants and Horses and great Elephants with four tusks and by Birds and animals in heat.
vrm.5.5 That Hanuma the courageous one, the intellectual one, saw houses with people in heat, houses filled with people, full chariots, Horses, Elephants and best furniture and also full of wealth.
vrm.5.6 Ravana s house waited upon by men on Elephants, warriors, people with removed tiredness, drivers of Elephants, by undefeatable Horses, and by charioteers.
vrm.5.6 That great Hanuma thought the house, which was shining with its form filled with Elephants, Horses, chariots, to be the jewel of Lanka.
vrm.5.6 That Hanuma in that house saw Horses in red colour and in white colour, slightly whitish, capable of great speed, Elephants born in a good breed having good appearance capable of harassing enemy s Elephants, skilled in good Elephant training, equalling Iravata, capable of killing enemies armies in war, rutting like raining clouds, like mountains with water falls that are pouring down, with trumpeting resembling thundering of clouds, unassailable by enemies in a battle.
vrm.5.7 Artificial Birds made of cat s eye gems, as well as Birds made of silver and coral, wonderful serpants made of various jewels, Horses of beautiful limbs suitable by their noble breed were arranged.
vrm.5.9 Whatever wealth is at Kubera, whatever riches at Indra with green Horses, all that affluence was at Ravana s house.
vrm.5.9 Some other women became tied with pearl necklaces, some others became with tied up waist ornaments and resembled young female Horses who had walked long.
vrm.5.17 Hanuma saw horrible Rakshasis, dark complexioned ones, angry ones, those who like quarrels, ones wearing big darts, mallets and clubs of Iron, with faces like those of Pigs, Deer, Tigers, Buffaloes, Goats, she Foxes, with feet like those of Elephants, Camels, Horses, with heads sunk into bodies, with single hand and single foot, those ears like that of Donkeys and Horses, those with cow ears, those with Elephant ears, those with Vanara ears, and some others without nose, those with horizontal nose, those with crooked nose, those with Elephant like nose, toes with nose fixed in forehead, with feet like those of Elephant, those with big feet, those with cow like feet, those with hair on their feet, those with big heads and necks, those with big nipples and big stomach, those with big eyes and mouths, with long tongues and nails, and also the a face like that of a she goat, those with Elephant like face, those with face like that of a cow, those with face of a she Pig, those with faces like those of Horses, Camels, Donkeys, those with horrible appearance, Rakshasis carrying pikes and clubs in their hand, angry ones, those who like quarrels, those with high teeth, with hair color like that of smoke, with horrible faces, always drinking liquor, always desiring meat and liquor, with body smeared by meat and blood, with meat and blood as food, whose appearance made hair to stand up, sitting around a great tree with huge trunk.
vrm.5.19 Seetha was as though going near to Rama a lion among kings with a famous personality with desires as chariot tied with thoughts as Horses.
vrm.5.22 "In your matter desire which has risen up is subdueing my anger like Horses running obtaining a bad path being subdued by a good charioteer.
vrm.5.27 "This beautiful city of Lanka has also been seen together with Horses and Elephants with broken gates and arches fallen down in the ocean.
vrm.5.31 He owned chariots, Elephants and Horses, becoming very famous.
vrm.5.36 Is Rama worthy of honour, suffering from pain just because of me? Will he liberate me from my sorrow, without fixing his mind on something else? I hope Bharata, having a brotherly affection, will send for my sake, an army furnished with banners, guarded by the ministers, consisting of Ten Anikinis elephants, chariots, Horses and foot soldiers which were terrific in appearance.

vrm.6.44 Angada on his part, who came to annihilate the enemies in that battle field, struck Indrajit, his charioteer and the Horses all at once.
vrm.6.44 While that awful and very intense battle was going on, Indrajit a great trickster, leaving the chariot, with its Horses and charioteer killed by Angada, vanished from that very spot itself.
vrm.6.52 Crushed by the great rocks of Vanaras, the earth was scattered with corpses of great Elephants resembling hills and Horses with their riders.
vrm.6.52 With the bow strings as the tuneful lute, the neighing of Horses as a measure rhythm and the trumpeting of Elephants as the vocal music, the whole battle resembled a symphony.
vrm.6.53 With the utmost attention, he assembled teams of Elephants, Horses mules Camels and chariots adorning them with conspicuous flags and banners and he himself was well prepared.
vrm.6.53 The earth then appeared fearful, it being covered with chariots, conspicuous flags, Horses, bodies of Vanaras and Rakshasas with streams of blood flowing there.
vrm.6.54 Meanwhile, the rock thrown by Angada, falling into the forefront of the battle, then crushed the chariot with its wheels shafts and Horses Thereafter, Angada the Vanara, seizing another large peak of a mountain adorned with trees, threw it on Vajradamshtra s head.
vrm.6.55 As he sped on his way, hastened and eager to enter the battle, the Horses drawing his chariot were suddenly deprived of their energy.
vrm.6.56 Thereafter, in his chariot, drawn by fast moving Horses, Akampana the most skillful of chariot warriors, with a hail of darts, assailed the Vanaras from a distance.

vrm.6.59 At these words, that King Ravana, his joy boasting subdued, his bow shattered, his Horses and chariot slain pierced with arrows, his great diadem broken, he soon returned to Lanka.
vrm.6.60 Rama" the son of Dasaratha is the man I think of whom Anaranya born of Ikshvaku dynasty formerly spoke, saying: O, the worst of Rakshasas, the worst of your race and the wretched one! In my race will be born a man who will slay you in battle with your sons, ministers, army, Horses and charioteer.
vrm.6.60 They beat Horses, Camels, Donkeys, and Elephants with sticks whips and thongs, so that they trample upon him and blasted kettle drums, couches and drums.
vrm.6.65 With loud sounds of counches and kettle drums, with an army wielding excellent weapons, with Elephants, with Horses and with chariots making sounds of clouds, mighty charioteers accompanied him who was the foremost among the charioteers.
vrm.6.67 That excellent mountain crushed the Horses, Elephants and the chariots.
vrm.6.67 Struck by the jerk of the mountain, that great battle field of Rakshasas, with its Horses and charioteers killed, became dampened with blood.
vrm.6.67 Uprooting large trees, the mighty Vanaras too began to destroy the chariots, Horses, Camels and Rakshasas.
vrm.6.69 Trishira, the son of Ravana, ascended an exquisite chariot, yoked to excellent Horses and filled with all types of armoury.
vrm.6.69 Mighty Rakshasas, holding excellent weaponry, accompanied them, mounting on Elephants, Horses and chariots making sounds of rumbling clouds.
vrm.6.69 The mighty Vanaras too saw that army of Rakshasas, which appeared like a black cloud but blazing like fire and sun on all sides, abounding with Elephants, Horses and chariots, made to resound with hundreds of small bells and wielding well raised great weaponry.
vrm.6.69 Some killed valiant Rakshasas, sitting or standing in chariots and also those Rakshasas mounted on Elephants and Horses.
vrm.6.69 Some Vanaras in the battle front destroyed chariot with chariots, Elephants with the very Elephants and Horse by the very Horses.
vrm.6.70 Thereupon, the valiant Trishira, mounting a chariot resembling the sun and yoked with excellent Horses, marched towards Angada.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that Atikaya, having a colossal body, Rama for his part was quite surprised and after consoling the Vanaras, spoke to Vibhishana as follows: “Who is he, resembling a mountain in size, armed with a bow, brown eyed and seated in a spacious chariot yoked with a thousand Horses?”
vrm.6.71 “He is respected for his counsel, for his rides on the backs of Horses and Elephants, for his drawing out of the sword and the bow, for his strategy winning over to his side by sowing dissention negotiation and bribery and for his steering capacity of an army.
vrm.6.71 Having regained his consciousness, the mighty Lakshmana, the annihilator of enemies, with his flood of arrows threw down the flag staff and killed the Horses and the charioteer in combat, with his four excellent arrows.
vrm.6.73 Some rode on the back of Elephants, some ascended excellent Horses, Tigers, scorpions, Cats, Donkeys and Camels, looking.
vrm.6.73 Having propitiated offering in fire, Indrajit, having a splendour shining like the fire, having a might similar to that of Indra, and possessing an unimaginable prowess, became himself invisible in the sky, with the bow, arrows, sword, chariot, Horses, charioteer and all.
vrm.6.73 Then, the army of Rakshasas, extensive with Horses and chariots, embellished by banners and flags, set out with a desire to fight, roaring.
vrm.6.75 of diverse and peculiar designs of Horses, the chains worn round the neck of the Elephants as also their girths and polished ornaments meant for the chariots were also burnt.
vrm.6.75 Coats of mail of the warriors, the armour of the Elephants and Horses, swords, bows, bow strings, arrows, lances, goads and javelins were burnt there.
vrm.6.75 With their Elephants let loose by the superintendents of the Elephants and Horses too set free, Lanka was like an ocean, with roaming alligators in it at the end of a world cycle.
vrm.6.75 That army of Rakshasas was looking awful with flags and banners, with excellent axes shaped like swords, consisting of terrific Horses, chariots and Elephants, crowded with foot soldiers of every description, distinguished by shining pikes, maces, swords, spears, lances and bows, noted for its redoubtable valour and prowess, with shining lances and rendered noisy by hundreds of tiny bells tied around chariots, Elephants etc, the arms of its warriors adorned with sets of gold ornaments, their axes being brandished, mighty weapons being waved about, arrows fitted to the bows and the whole atmosphere rendered fragrant by the abundance of sandal paste, garlands and wine.
vrm.6.76 The Vanaras in the battle field hurled trees and rocks towards chariots and Horses.
vrm.6.78 Those Horses, yoked to his chariot, deprived of their diversified gait, were walking with flurried feet and went timidly, with tears in their eyes.
vrm.6.79 Rama, breaking the chariot with his arrows and killing its Horses, made them to fall down dead.
vrm.6.80 Drawn by four Horses, provided with sharp arrows and a mighty bow placed on it, that excellent chariot looked beautiful.
vrm.6.80 While Indrajit was moving about, neither the sound produced by the impact of his palm on the bow string was heard, nor the sound of his wheels or the clattering of hoofs of his Horses could be heard, nor did his form come tot he view.
vrm.6.82 On seeing that rock rushing towards them, the obedient Horses, yoked to that chariot, carried the chariot off to a far distance.
vrm.6.83 “O the foremost among men! O the long armed one! O the firmly resolute one! Arise! Why are you not knowing about yourself, who is the great souled and whose spirit is disciplined?” “O faultless one! On seeing the death of Seetha and enraged, rising to do favour for you, I shall completely destroy with my arrows, Lanka with its chariots, Elephants and Horses along with Ravana.
vrm.6.85 "By his penance, Indrajit obtained a weapon called Brahmashira, by way of a gift from Brahma and also Horses, which are coursing at his will.
vrm.6.87 "Destroy that mighty Indrajit, along with his chariot, Horses and charioteer, by releasing your blazing arrows, even while he has not reached the banyan tree.
vrm.6.88 Indrajit was looking like Yama the lord of Death at the time of dissolution of the world, sitting in a well decorated and distinguished chariot yoked with black Horses, having upraised sword and weapons, raising a big terrific enormous strong and swift bow and laying hold of arrows which can torment the enemies.
vrm.6.89 By discharging four arrows, Lakshmana then struck four black gold adorned Horses of Indrajit.
vrm.6.89 When he was driving his Horses, Lakshmana struck him with sharp arrows.
vrm.6.89 When he was attending to his bow, he released arrows on Horses.
vrm.6.89 Those four mokeys, having a great might and terrible prowess, quickly bounced and descended on his ecellent Horses.
vrm.6.89 Blood started flowing from the mouths of those Horses pressed under the weight of those Vanaras, as huge as mountains.
vrm.6.89 That Indrajit hatasaarathiH= whose charioteer was killed hataashvaat= and whose Horses were destroyed avaplutya= leaped down rathaat= from his chariot abhyadhaavata= and attacked saumitrim= Lakshmana sharavarSheNa= with streams of arrows.
vrm.6.90 Indrajit, the Rakshasa, who was endowed with extraordinary energy, standing on the ground his Horses having been killed was very much enraged and blazed with spirit.
vrm.6.90 Arranging for embellishment of a chariot, which was beautiful, decked with gold, furnished with darts, swords and arrows, yoked with excellent Horses, directed by a charioteer who could understand those Horses properly and could give credible instructions to them, that Indrajit, a conqueror in battle, who was endowed with extraordinary energy, then ascended it.
vrm.6.90 Moving out form the City with his swift Horses, that indrajit, the destroyer of valiant enemies, attacked Lakshmana and Vibhishana.
vrm.6.90 Those Horses, bereft of a charioteer there, without getting perturbed, ran up in a circular fashion and continued to draw the chariot.
vrm.6.90 Getting the power of anger, Lakshmana of unyielding prowess, pierced the Horses of Indrajit with arrows, so as to frighten them thereby.
vrm.6.90 Very much enraged with him, that Vibhishana of great splendor killed the Horses of that evil minded Indrajit with his mace.
vrm.6.90 Just leaping down from the chariot whose charioteer was destroyed earlier and whose Horses were killed, that Indrajit of great splendor employed his javelin towards his maternal uncle.
vrm.6.90 The strong bodied Vibhishana, in anger, dug five arrows, whose impact was a hard as that of a thunder bolt, into the bosom of Indrajit, whose Horses were already killed.
vrm.6.90 With the help of that arrow, the highly powerful and valiant Indra, who had Green Horses to his chariot, was able to conquer the Danavas in a combat which raged between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.93 "Surrounded by the entire Elephants and Horses, as also graced with columns of chariots and foot soldiers, all of you march forward.
vrm.6.93 With Elephants and chariots as their river banks, with Horses as their fish and with flag staffs as trees, rivers of blood gushed forth, carrying dead Then, all those Vanaras were drenched in streams of blood.
vrm.6.93 Leaping and bouncing on the battle field, the Vanara chiefs broke off flag staffs, armours, chariots, Horses and various kinds of weapons.
vrm.6.93 Here is Rama, killing foot soldiers along with Horses with his sharp arrows".
vrm.6.93 Within a matter of three hours, with his arrows looking like tongues of flames, Rama killed an army of Rakshasas, capable of changing their form at will, including ten thousands chariots possessing the swiftness of the wind, eighteen thousand strong Elephants, fourteen thousand Horses with their riders and a full two lacs of Rakshasas fighting on foot.
vrm.6.93 Those surviving Rakshasas, with their Horses killed, with their chariots destroyed, with thier flag staffs broken and with broken spirits, rushed back towards the City of Lanka.
vrm.6.93 That battle field, with Elephants, foot soldiers and Horses killed, looked like a pleasure grave of the powerful and the enraged the lord of destruction.
vrm.6.94 Rama, who was unweary in action, with his shining arrows adorned with pure gold, killed those thousands of Elephants dispatched by Ravana, thousands of Horses, valiant Rakshasas who can change their form at will mounted on thousands of chariots with their flag staffs, having the colour of fire, fighting with maces and iron rods and conspicuous with their golden banners.
vrm.6.94 "The valiant Rama killed hundreds and thousands of chariots, Horses and Elephants in the battle.
vrm.6.95 Then, as per the orders of Ravana, the army commander hurriedly brought a chariot, moving swiftly, along with a charioteer and yoked with eight Horses.
vrm.6.95 Then, that Ravana, the great chariot warrior, ascending his chariot driven by swift Horses, sallied forth to the gate, where Rama and Lakshmana were.
vrm.6.95 The Horses stumbled.
vrm.6.97 Swinging that flashing iron rod and showing it to him, Sugreeva killed the excellent Horses of Mahodara with that iron rod of terrible speed.
vrm.6.97 Jumping down from that huge chariot, whose Horses had been killed, that valiant Mahodara the Rakshasa, thereupon seized hold of a mace with anger.
vrm.6.98 By that blow, that Mahaparshva dropped senseless and unconscious on the ground from his chariot along with is charioteer The energetic Jambavan, looking like a heap of black collyrium, who was exceedingly powerful, battalion which resembled a black cloud a mountain peak, killed his Horses with his strength and broke that chariot too.
vrm.6.100 Bouncing forward, Vibhishana killed, with his mace, the excellent Horses of Ravana, which looked like black clouds and were tall as mountains.
vrm.6.100 Leaping down with speed from his large chariot, whose Horses had been killed, Ravana then exhibited a violent anger towards the younger brother of Rama.
vrm.6.102 "O Indra! Providing with green Horses the excellent chariot, I will proceed then immediately and perform the duty of a charioteer to Rama.
vrm.6.102 Then came the glorious and excellent chariot of Indra, having variegated body decked in gold, which was fitted with hundreds of tiny bells, with its pole of cat s eye gems shone like the morning sun, yoked to excellent green Horses, having golden chaplets on their heads, having white whisks, covered with nets of gold, shining like the sun and bearing a flag staff raised on a golden bamboo.
vrm.6.102 Striking down the golden flag staff from the top of the chariot down to the seat of the chariot, Ravana struck even Indra s Horses with a multitude of arrows.
vrm.6.102 With terrific arrows of high speed, with their shafts made of reeds, going straight to their target, Rama pierced the exceedingly fleet Horses of Ravana.
vrm.6.104 "The Horses of my chariot were broken down and were exhausted by drawing the chariot.
vrm.6.104 "This action appropriate was taken by me in order to give rest to you and to these Horses of the chariot as also to relieve your terrible fatigue.

"Hail to you, the ruler of Brahma, Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu the infallible, the sun god, the light indwelling the solar orb, the resplendent one, the devourer of all, appearing in form of Rudra.
vrm.6.106 Thrilling with rapture, that charioteer, the charioteer of Ravana, drove forward quickly, his chariot, a chariot, which was capable of attacking the army of enemies, a wonderful piece of art like Gandharva city, an imaginary city in the sky, mounted with flags, yoked with Horses of excellent quality adorned with golden necklaces, filled with war implements, adorned with rows of flags and banners, which was devouring the sky as it were, making the earth resound, which was the destroyer of the army of adversaries and caused delight to its own.
vrm.6.106 Rama saw that Ravanas’ chariot, which was coming speedily with a noise, bearing a large flag staff, yoked with black Horses, endowed with a terrific luster, blazing like an aerial car in the sky, with a luster of the sun, filled with lightning like flags and with a beautiful appearance of a rain bow.
vrm.6.106 His Horses discharged sparks of fire from their hips and loins as also tears from their eyes, releasing out fire and water at the same time continuously.
vrm.6.107 Ravana struck Rama s Horses with blazing arrows.
vrm.6.107 Those divine Horses were neither shaken nor stumbled in the battle field.

vrm.6.107 The shaft of the two chariots even as they stood at that moment, met one with the other shaft the muzzle of the Horses met the one with the other and the flags met the one with the other flags.
vrm.6.107 Then Rama, with his four sharp arrows discharged from his bow, drove back the four splendid Horses of Ravana.
vrm.6.107 That Ravana, falling a prey to anger for retreating his Horses, discharged sharp arrows on Rama.
vrm.6.108 Blazing like a fire at the time of universal dissolution enveloped in smoke and looking like a venomous snake, it was swift in action and capable of bursting hosts of men, Elephants and Horses.
vrm.6.123 Thereupon, the Vanaras along with the Rakshasas beheld that Ayodhya, having rows of white palaces, intersected with wide roads, and crowded with Elephants and Horses, looking like Amaravati, the City of Indra
vrm.6.125 “Whose mind does not turn round, with a kingdom abundantly rich in all coveted enjoyments, teeming with Elephants Horses and chariots and which is in herited from one’s father?”
vrm.6.127 Warriors on selected Horses even still superior ones in thousands, bearing banners and pennants, carrying javelins, spears and nooses, as also surrounded by thousands of foot soldiers, sallied forth.
vrm.6.127 Descending from their chariots, Elephants as also Horses and standing on the ground, all those people saw, like the moon in the sky, that Rama seated in the aerial car.
