vrm.3.11 Once upon a time verily cruel brothers Vaataapi and Ilvala were here together, and they the dreadful Asuras, they say, used to be Bhraman killers.
vrm.3.11 Disguising in Bhraman s semblance and speaking sophisticatedly that Ilvala used to invite Brahmans for the purpose of obsequial ceremonies, where Brahman are fed after usual ceremony to appeases their Pitris.
vrm.3.11 Then Ilvala used to make his brother Vaataapi into a ram, perfect that ram s meat into deliciously cooked food, and used to feed Brahmans according to obsequial rites and deeds.
vrm.3.11 When those Brahmans are surfeited with that ram s meat, then Ilvala used to shout loudly, oh, Vaataapi, you may come out.
vrm.3.11 Then by Sage Agastya, whom Gods have prayed to end this Rakshasa menace, and whom Asura Ilvala invited to feast during obsequial rites, he that Agastya having relished the fiendish Asura in the form of Ram, they say, had finished him off.
vrm.3.11 Then Ilvala while giving lateral hand wash into the palms of Agastya entered in the routine conversation of obsequies asking, Is this rite fulfilled.
vrm.3.11 Then that wise and eminent sage Agastya spoke mockingly to Ilvala who is conversing that way to his brother to come out.
