vrm.1.1 a "On the advice of Sage Agastya Rama took a bow of Indra from Sage Agastya, which Indra once gave to Sage Agastya, along with a sword, and two quivers in which arrows will be ever replenishing, and thus Rama is highly pleased to receive befitting weaponry.
vrm.1.5 As an improver of great kingdom Dasharatha the king made her as his abode, as Indra made heavens as his abode.
vrm.1.5 Buildings are ornamentally studded with precious gems, and with such multi storied sky scrappers she is adorned, and filled with them she is like Amaravati, the capital of Indra.
vrm.1.6 He who is well versed in Veda s, who is a gatherer of all scholars, riches and forces as well, a foreseer and a great resplendent one, also one who is esteemed by urbanites and countrymen alike, one who is a top speeded chariot warrior aamong the emperors of Ikshwaku kings, one who has performed many Vedic rituals, a virtuous one, a great controller, a saint like kingly sage, one who he is renowned in all the three worlds, a mighty one with all his enemies eradicated, nevertheless who has friends, one who conquered all his senses, one who is similar to Indra, or Kubera on earth with his wealth, accumulations and other possessions, he that king Dasharatha while dwelling in the city of Ayodhya protected the world, like Manu, the foremost protector of mankind.
vrm.1.6 He that truth abiding king, who adheres to the three fold virtues rules the vast of that kingdom from that best city Ayodhya, as Indra rules heaven from his capital Amaravati.
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.1.6 High bred from the classes of Iravata, the Elephant of Lord Indra, and from Mahapadma, Anjana and Vamana, too.
vrm.1.6 With gorgeous arches, castle door bars and with amazingly built houses that city is magnificent and auspicious one, and full with thousands of provincial kings too, and king Dasharatha, a coequal of Indra, indeed ruled that city which is true to its name.
vrm.1.7 He thus ruled the world like Indra would in Heaven.
vrm.1.11 b, a Then all the citizens are very happy on seeing that Brahman, Sage Rishyasringa, who is well honoured and being entered into the city by their king Dasharatha, as has been done once by Indra when he entered sage Kashyapa s son Vamana, the dwarfish boy and the incarnation of Vishnu, into heavens, and thus those citizens felt that their human lord Dasharatha vies with divine lord Indra.
vrm.1.14 The oblations addressed to Indra are well given as ordained, and the flawless king Dasharatha also crushed the Soma creeper to squeeze Soma juice, and thus the mid day Savana ritual has come to pass according to sequence.
vrm.1.14 Rishyasringa and other best scholars with their well lettered and intonated Vedic hymns have invoked Indra and other Devas to that place.
vrm.1.15 "You have given boon to him appreciating his ascesis and oh, god, with high regard to that boon of yours we are tolerating all the cruel acts of Ravana from then onwards "That malevolent Ravana is tormenting all the three worlds, hating the functionary deities of cosmos, and always desires to assail Indra, the king of all the functionary deities of universe.
vrm.1.15 "Oh! Vishnu, he that fiery one is uprising furiously with his heightened arrogance, and he is a fright to sages and a thorn in the side of hermits, and he is the hater of Indra, hence we pray you to redeem that Ravana.
vrm.1.16 Then on seeing his queens with confirmed pregnancies Dasharatha regained his lost heart for sons, and he is gladdened like Vishnu, who will always be gladsome when worshipped by Devas, namely Indra and others, as well as by the assemblages of great souls, sages.
vrm.1.17 Indra procreated the lord of vanara s, namely Vali, who by his physique is like Mountain Mahendra, and the highest humidifier among all the humidifiers, namely the Surya, procreated Sugreeva.
vrm.1.17 b, a All of the Vanaras stood by the brothers, namely the son of Indra Vali, and the son of sun Sugreeva, and even with the Vanara generals like Nala, Neela and Hanuma et
vrm.1.18 Kausalya shone forth with such a son whose resplendence is unlimited, as with lady Aditi who once stood out with her son Indra, the best one among Devas.
vrm.1.18 b, a On hearing that message from doorkeepers Dasharatha is highly pleased and he has gone towards Vishvamitra in a self possessed manner along with royal priests, as Indra would ceremoniously go towards Brahma.
vrm.1.24 b, a "Once upon a time, oh, Rama, mortal impurities of filth and hunger completely stained Indra when he eliminated Vritra, as he committed the sin of killing of a Brahman, where Vritra was incidentally a Brahman.
vrm.1.24 b, a "The Devas and ascetically rich sages then started to bathe feculent Indra with their handy vessels for the riddance of his defilement.
vrm.1.24 "As and when Indra was without desecration and hunger as well, and thus purified, then gladdened about this place he gave it an unexcelled boon.
vrm.1.24 Thus Indra gave boon to this place.
vrm.1.24 b, a "On observing the honour accorded by wise Indra to these places Devas praised the controller of Paka, namely Indra saying, splendid, splendid it is.
vrm.1.24 b, a "Later at sometime, a Yaksha female who is a guise changer at her wish, possessor of the strength of a thousand Elephants, wife of clever Sunanda, and she whose son is Maricha, the one equal to Indra in his bravery, prevailed here, let you be safe Rama.
vrm.1.25 "Oh, Rama, the protector of people, we have heard that Indra once eliminated Manthara, the daughter of Virochana, when she wished to annihilate earth, haven t we.
vrm.1.25 "And Rama, once Vishnu wiped out even the wife of sage Bhrigu and sage Shukracarya s mother when she wished the world to become one without a governing factor, namely Indra.
vrm.1.26 b, a On seeing her who is horrendous in her shape is eliminated Indra and other Devas have highly esteemed Rama saying, “admirable, admirable is this act.
vrm.1.26 The thousand eyed and the destroyer of enemy’s citadels Indra then spoke with high satisfaction, and even all of the Devas are gladdened and said to Vishvamitra this way.
vrm.1.26 b, a "Oh, sage Vishvamitra, you are blessed, all the groups of Maruts along with Indra are pleased, so you please show more concern for Raghava.
vrm.1.27 a Raghava", I am going to give the highly divine Danda disc Punisher disc next, oh, best one among men, Dharma disc Virtue disc, and like that kaala disc Time disc then oh, brave one, Vishnu disc similarly oh, dextrous Rama, Indra disc and Thunderbolt missile the best trident pertaining to Shiva the missile called Brahma shira Brahma crest the missile called the Aishiika missile Grass Blade missile, and that way oh, Raghava, I am going to give the unexcelled and highly formidable missile called Brahma missile.
vrm.1.29 b, a "In the meantime, when Vishnu was in his asceticism in this hermitage, the son of King Virochana, namely Bali, has completely conquered all the assemblages of Devas together with Indra and his coterie called Maruts, and ruling that kingdom where that hermitage is there, he has become renowned in all the three worlds for his magnanimity.
vrm.1.29 a Oh, god, oh, sinless one, you may please attain the sonship of Lady Aditi and myself, oh, dispenser of Rakshasas, it will be apt of you to render help to Gods who are agonised in the anguish owing to the predominance of Emperor Bali, by becoming the younger brother of Indra.
vrm.1.29 Vishnu gave the earth back to Indra restraining Emperor Bali with his vitality.
vrm.1.29 Thus that great resplendent Vishnu made the three worlds to come under the control of Indra again.
vrm.1.30 When Rama, the delight of Raghu s dynasty, has eliminated all of the Rakshasas that are the hinderers of Vedic rituals, the sages available there in that hermitage idealised him as Indra was idealised once, when he became victories on Rakshasas.
vrm.1.33 King" Brahmadatta endued with superb grandeur ruled from a city called Kaampilya as with Indra ruling the heaven.
vrm.1.33 "As with the tradition of marriage king Brahmadatta who vies with lord of Gods, namely Indra, in succession took the palm of each of the hundred girls into his palm.
vrm.1.37 "While god Shiva is undertaking ascesis thus, then the Devas desiring an Army Chief for Deva forces have arrived in the audience of Forefather Brahma, along with Indra and keeping Agni at their fore.
vrm.1.37 "On approaching the Forefather Brahma, oh, Rama, all of the Devas headed by Agni and along with Indra have venerated and then spoke this to him.
vrm.1.37 "Then for the boy who took birth from the embryo deposited in Himalayas, the Maruts along with Indra have arranged Krittika stars to simultaneously suckle him.
vrm.1.39 "And on the day of a sacred function called Ukthyam, Indra assumed the form of a Rakshasa and stole the ritual Horse of the chief of the ritual, namely Sagara.
vrm.1.42 "That best one among men, namely king Dilipa, on anointing his son Bhagiratha in the kingdom went to the abode of Indra, namely the heaven, only by his self acquired merits of deeds.
vrm.1.45 "Oh, Rama, I will tell you about the auspicious legend of Indra as I was told, and you listen to it as I tell.
vrm.1.45 "On eliminating the sons of Diti and on acquiring kingdom of heaven, that eliminator of enemy cities, namely Indra, happily ruled the worlds that are inclusive of sages and Caarana s.
vrm.1.46 Oh, god, I am bereaved of my sons who are killed by your great mighty sons, the sons of your second wife Aditi, as such I wish to bear a son, who is achievable by sustained penance, for he shall be the exterminator of Indra.
vrm.1.46 Such a bereaved mother as I am, I wish to undertake asceticism for a son who shall become an exterminator of Indra, and who shall be the ruler of worlds.
vrm.1.46 oh, ascetically wealthy lady, you be blest, if you abide by the propriety of the practises of asceticism, then you will be delivering a son who can become an exterminator of Indra in war.
vrm.1.46 "While she is truly practising asceticism, oh, the best among men Rama, that Thousand eyed god Indra has indeed rendered services with his abundant and surpassing veracities to her, who is none other than his maternal aunt.
vrm.1.46 "The Thousand eyed god Indra made available fire, firewood, water, the sacred Kusha grass, fruits and like that tubers also, and whatever other items she required in her ascetic practise.
vrm.1.46 "All the time Indra indeed served Diti by massaging her body, and other means of removing her bodily strain resulting from her arduous practises.
vrm.1.46 "Oh, Rama, the descendent of Raghu, when ten years are less to complete the thousand years span of her ascetics, Diti is highly rejoiced as her ambition is going to fructify in just ten more years, and then she spoke to the Thousand eyed god, Indra.
vrm.1.46 Oh, best one among the valiant ones, Indra, to me who am practising asceticism ten years are remaining to complete, then you can see your brother, you be safe.
vrm.1.46 Oh, son Indra, whom I am bringing up for your reason, I will bring him up as a victory enthusiast, and oh, son, Indra, along with him conquering the three worlds you can enjoy them, without febrility from your enemies.
vrm.1.46 "Oh, best one among Gods, Indra, on my prayer your high souled father Sage Kaashyapa bestowed this boon on me for a son, which materialises at the end of thousand years, and only ten more years are to slip by.
vrm.1.46 "On observing her who has become impious by placing her head at feet side and braid falling on feet, Indra is gladdened and laughed at her failed asceticism.
vrm.1.46 "Oh, Rama, being a highly courageous one, Indra the destroyer of enemy fastnesses, entered the body of Diti through her vaginal aperture and rent her foetus asunder into seven fragments.
vrm.1.46 thus Indra was coaxing the foetus, and even though that foetus is screaming piteously the great resplendent Indra has gone on fragmenting it.
vrm.1.46 thus Diti raved in that way, and then Indra fell out of the womb honouring his stepmother s entreaty.
vrm.1.46 Indra" humbly folding his palms that are still handling his bloody Thunderbolt spoke to Diti, oh, lady, you have become impious when your braid touched your feet and when you have gone to sleep in midday, and you vow is thwarted.
vrm.1.46 "Thereby I gained a chance to eliminate him who can eliminate Indra in a battle.
vrm.1.46 So said Indra to lady Diti.
vrm.1.47 Diti" was highly anguished when her foetus is rendered into sevenfold, and spoke these appeasing words to the indomitable Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.1.47 Oh, Indra, the eliminator of Bali, this foetus of mine is sliced into seven segments owing to my own misdeed, oh, ruler of Gods, Indra, indeed there is no iniquity of yours in this matter.
vrm.1.47 Thus Diti started speaking to Indra.
vrm.1.47 Oh, son Indra, let these seven sons of mine become the seven presiding deities of Cosmic Air Divisions and let them move in heaven with heavenly forms.
vrm.1.47 One from the seven may permeate Brahma s abode, likewise another may permeate the heaven of Indra, and even the third one, let him become a greatly celebrated and reputed as Divine Vayu, and he may circulate in entire universe.
vrm.1.47 Oh, chief of Gods, Indra, let four of my sons permeate four directions according to time and at your command, let safety betide you, and let them be renowned verily by the name given by you as Marut, because you have coaxed the crying fragments of foetus saying, maa ruda, maa ruda, do not cry, do not cry.
vrm.1.47 Thus Diti said to Indra.
vrm.1.47 a "On hearing her words, the Thousand eyed destroyer of enemy s citadels and a named Bali, namely Indra, spoke this word to Diti, humbly adjoining his palms.
vrm.1.47 Thus Indra assured Diti.
vrm.1.47 Those two, the stepmother Diti and the stepson Indra, on arriving at a decision in that ascetic forest, departed to heaven fulfilling their purposes.
vrm.1.47 b, a "Oh, Rama of Kakutstha, this province is that one which was once presided over by Indra, and where he rendered services to that accomplished one in her asceticism, namely lady Diti.
vrm.1.48 "On knowing the meantime of Gautama s availability at hermitage, Indra, the husband of Shaci Devi and the Thousand eyed god wearing the guise of sage Gautama and becoming such a sage, approached Ahalya and said this to her.
vrm.1.48 "Oh, Rama, the legatee of Raghu, though knowing him as the Thousand eyed Indra in the guise of her husband Gautama, she is inclined to have intercourse ill advisedly, only to satisfy the impassion of the King of Gods.
vrm.1.48 "She felt fulfilled in her heart of hearts and then she said this to that best god Indra, I am gratified in complying with your wish, oh, best of Gods, get going oh, lord, from here quickly, oh, ruler of Gods, always safeguard yourself and me from Sage Gautama.
vrm.1.48 Thus, Ahalya said to Indra.
vrm.1.48 a Indra" on his part smilingly said this word to Ahalya, oh, well hipped lady, I am quite delighted, here I go as I have came.
vrm.1.48 b, a "Oh, Rama, Indra then came out of the cottage flustering hurriedly after copulating with her with an uncertainty about the arrival of Sage Gautama.
vrm.1.48 Indra" has then seen the great saint Gautama, an unassailable sage either for Gods or for Rakshasas owing to his ascetic prowess, though thoroughly wet with the water of pious river he is luminous like ritual fire, and a foremost saint among all saints who just entered the hermitage carrying ritual firewood and sacred grass.
vrm.1.48 b, a "On seeing the sage the lord of Gods Indra is scared and became dreary faced.
vrm.1.48 Then the well behaved Gautama furiously spoke these words on seeing the ill behaved Thousand eyed Indra who is donning the guise of a saint.
vrm.1.48 b, Oh, dirty minded Indra, taking hold of my form you have effectuated this unacceptable deed, whereby you shall become infecund.
vrm.1.48 Thus, Gautama cursed Indra.
vrm.1.48 "When that great souled sage Gautama spoke that way with rancour, the testicles of the cursed Thousand eyed Indra fell down onto ground at that very moment.
vrm.1.48 "On cursing Indra thus the sage cursed even his wife saying, you shall tarry here for many thousands of years to come without food and consuming air alone, and unseen by all beings you shall live on in this hermitage while contritely recumbent in dust.
vrm.1.49 "The emasculated Indra then with panicked eyes spoke to Gods, Siddha s, Gandharva s, and Carana s, keeping Agni as their helms god.
vrm.1.49 Thus Indra spoke to all Gods.
vrm.1.49 "On hearing the words of the officiator for Hundred Vedic rituals, namely Indra, all of the Devas together with the Maruts came to the Pitris keeping the Fire god in van, and appealed.
vrm.1.49 This Ram is with Testicles and Indra is indeed rendered Testicle less.
vrm.1.49 Taking the Testicles of this Ram they may be given to Indra quickly.
vrm.1.49 This Ram that is being offered to you shall now be gelded to give its Testes to Indra, and though this Ram is deprived of its organ it will be complete and it endows complete satisfaction to you.
vrm.1.49 "On hearing the words of Agni, the Agni, the Pitris Gods who gathered to collect their share of offering have extricated that Ram s Testes, which is not yet sacrificed but tethered to a sacrificial post, and offered them to the Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.1.49 "Oh, Rama of Kakutstha, from then onwards the Pitris who come to collect their share are enjoying even the Goats, even if they do not have Testes, to endow benefits thereof to those that offer those Goats, and to join the Testes of Goats to Indra.
vrm.1.49 "Oh, Raghava, owing to the efficacy of the great souled Gautama and his ascesis, from then onwards Indra has became one with the Testes of a Goat.
vrm.1.56 Vishvamitra, the son of Gaadhi then rancorously fusilladed the missiles regulated by Gods like Varuna, Rudra, Indra, Pasupata, and even a missile which is projectile through grass blade called Ishiika.
vrm.1.57 saying so that great resplendent Brahma, the Supreme Ruler of the Worlds, went away to his Abode of Brahma, while the Gods in Brahma s convoy went to Indra s Heaven.
vrm.1.60 b, a "On seeing Trishanku s entry into the realm of heaven, Indra, the subjugator of Paka, spoke this sentence together with all the multitudes of Gods.
vrm.1.60 And still remaining amidst of sages that highly reputed sage Vishvamitra further started to replicate the stereotyped stocks of stars sequentially, resorting to the southern hemisphere, as he is convulsed in anger at Indra.
vrm.1.60 "On replicating the stereotyped stocks of other galaxies and stars, and while fury continued to blemish him Vishvamitra said, I will now clone an alternative Indra, or let that realm created by me remain without any Indra, and when he is about to proceed to clone even Gods in his wrath, the Gods are startled.
vrm.1.60 Trishanku will also remain in the circle of stars you created, but upside down, for Indra s indict cannot be annulled, and he will be gleaming like a star and similar to any celestial.
vrm.1.61 "But Indra impounded the animal of the principal of that ritual, namely king Ambarisha, and when that animal is really vanished, the officiant Brahman of the ritual spoke this to that king.
vrm.1.62 "When Shunashepa is tied to ritual post he immensely pleased two Gods, namely Indra and Upendra as well, with those two hymns he got from Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.62 "Then the Thousand eyed Indra who is satisfied with esoteric laudation is gladdened, and oh, Raghava, then he bestowed longevity to Shunashepa.
vrm.1.62 "Oh, Rama, the best one among men, he that king Ambarisha also obtained the fruits of that Vedic ritual in manyfold, resulted from the grace of Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.1.63 b, "While that great saint is undertaking fervent ascesis it has become a very high burning problem to Gods and even to Indra.
vrm.1.63 "Then Indra along with all the assemblages of the Maruts spoke to Rambha, the Apsara, words that are advantageous to himself, but disadvantageous to the son of sage Kushi, namely Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.64 Thus Indra ordered Rambha.
vrm.1.64 "Oh, Rama, when that Apsara is spoken thus by the Thousand eyed Indra, she diffidently said to that chief of Gods while adjoining her palms suppliantly.
vrm.1.64 Oh, chief of Gods, Indra, that great saint Vishvamitra is a dangerous one and undoubtedly he releases his deadly anger on me.
vrm.1.64 So said Rambha to Indra.
vrm.1.64 a "Oh, Rama, the Thousand eyed Indra replied Rambha when she spoke to him in that way while shuddering in fear and making palm fold in supplication.
vrm.1.64 So said Indra to Rambha.
vrm.1.64 "On hearing the sentence of Indra she adopted an unexcelled physique, and on becoming a pulchritudinous damsel she started to entice Vishvamitra with giggly grins.
vrm.1.64 "On knowing that as an escapade of the Thousand eyed Indra, Vishvamitra is enwrapped in wrath and he cursed Rambha.
vrm.1.64 "Then Rambha has become a rocklike statue by that great curse of Vishvamitra, and having heard the words of that great saint Kamadeva and Indra also took flight.
vrm.1.65 "On one day when those thousand years of ascesis with the rigorous pledge of Vishvamitra are being completed, and when he started to eat his meal, oh, Rama, best of Raghu s dynasty, Indra arrived there disguising himself as a Brahman and requested for the readily available meal.
vrm.1.65 b, "Then that godly Vishvamitra willingly gave away all the readied meal to that Brahman, and as no meal is leftover by Brahman Indra, that great ascetic Vishvamitra starved himself.
vrm.1.69 a "Providentially bechanced is the arrival of this great resplendent and godly sage Vashishta, who arrived here with all of these eminent Brahmans, like Indra himself with all Gods.
vrm.1.69 "Because you are born in first and foremost Ikshvaku dynasty, hence you are the Indra of Indra like kings on earth.
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.1.75 haven t you readily discarded weapon wielding on your promise to Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.2.1 The mighty Dasaratha was also often remembering his sons Bharata and Satrughna who were out of his state and who were equivalent to Indra and Varuna.
vrm.2.1 That Rama was He not the eternal Vishnu who was born on earth as prayed by Devas to kill the egoistic Ravana? Like Aditi by Indra, best among the Devas, Kausalya shone by her son Rama, the mighty.
vrm.2.1 The earth wished Rama to be her Lord as he was adorned with self control and norms of behavior bearing undefeatable valor equal to that of universal lords like Indra.
vrm.2.6 That city of Ayodhya equal to the residence of Indra, disturbed with the sound being made all over by the villagers who came with the desire to see the ceremony, shone like a roaring ocean filled with sea animals.
vrm.2.9 "O Queen! Once upon a time, when there was a battle between Devas and Asuras, your husband Dasaratha went along with you and other holy kings to help Indra in battle, to a famous city called Vaijayata in which Timidhvaja lived in a southern direction in the forest of Dandaka.
vrm.2.14 Thus compelled by Kaikeyi, who had no uneasiness in her mind, king Dasaratha could not untie the cord of plighted word that fettered him any more than Bali could unloose the noose placed round his body by Indra.
vrm.2.14 Passing through that city, whose streets were swept and watered decorated with excellent flags, overspread with colourful flowers made brilliant with various types of garlands, filled with people of joy, with shops and markets with abundance, filled with lot of festivities, anxiously waiting for Rama, fumigated on all sides with perfumes of sandalwood also resembling Amaravati city capital of Indra the sage Vashishta beheld the excellent, gynaecium filled with many a number of brahmanas, crowded with citizens and countrymen, looking splendorous with brahmanas, knowers of sacrificial assembly filled with excellent brahmanas.
vrm.2.14 "At the very hour of sunrise, Matali Indra s charioteer praised Indra and the latter conquered all the Rakshasas.
vrm.2.14 "Oh, Dasaratha born in Kakutsa dynasty! May the Gods Sun and the Moon Shiva and Kubera, Varuna, Agni and Indra bestow you victory!" "Oh, the best of the kings The holy night has gone by.
vrm.2.15 "Oh, king Dasaratha! Let sun and the moon, guardians of the world like Shiva and Kubera, Varuna, Agni and Indra grant victory to you!" "Oh, the best of kings! The venerable night has gone.
vrm.2.15 Then, Sumantra saw Rama s palace which was lovely shining like top of a mountain and radiant like Indra s palace.
vrm.2.15 That palace of the great souled Rama was like Indra s palace with great wealth.
vrm.2.16 "May Indra the holder of Vajra in the east, Yama in the south, Varuna in the west and Kubera the god of riches and treasure in the north, protect you".
vrm.2.16 That Rama shining with splendour like Indra, the lord of sky, mounted such a chariot and went forth quickly.
vrm.2.23 By wearing a sword with sharp edge which is mavingly bright like lightening, I do not care any enemy, even Indra himself.
vrm.2.25 May the Pusha, Bhaga and Aryama and the guardians of the spheres with Indra as their Head do good to you.
vrm.2.35 King" Dasaratha is unconquerable as great Indra, unshakable as mountain and imperturbable as a great ocean.
vrm.2.36 As it is contradictory to righteousness to abandon one who is guilty and who is devoted to a good path, it would consume the splendour of even Indra.
vrm.2.38 "Oh, the king akim to the mighty Indra the ruler of Gods! You must see that my mother, who has high affection towards her son, will not depart to the house of Yama by abandoning her life being emaciated by grief after my departure for the forest.
vrm.2.40 Then, Sumantra the humble man, who was aware of humility, joined his palms and spoke these words to Rama even as Matali would to Indra.
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.2.63 Due to banishing of Rama and Lakshmana, a great calamity befell on Dasaratha who was equal in strength to Indra like sun seized by obscurity, which is attributed to Rahu.
vrm.2.64 “A killing brought about by a warrior premeditatedly and in particular to a hermit, would expel even Indra from his post.
vrm.2.64 “The pious son of the sage on his part, soon ascended the Heaven, wearing a wonderful form along with Indra as a result of his own pious acts.
vrm.2.64 “That son of the sage who was together with Indra, talked to his parents.
vrm.2.67 “Hence, Yama, Kubera, Indra and the very mighty Varuna are outstretched by the a high and eminent conduct.
vrm.2.71 Beholding the city of Ayodhya,that formerly possessed the splendor of the capital city of Indra, now with its squares houges and high ways deserted, the doors and hinges covered with rust Bharata was overcome with grief.
vrm.2.74 “Small and sweet smelling tear drops of that mythical cow fell on the limbs of the high soled Indra who was traveling below in a lower region.
vrm.2.74 “Seeing those sweet scented tears falling on his limbs, Indra identified the tears to be those of the great Kamadhenu the mythical cow.
vrm.2.74 “Looking into the sky, Indra saw that Kamadhenu standing there with anguish and pitiably weeping with great grief.
vrm.2.74 Indra“ with a thunder bolt in his hand, seeing that beautiful Kamadhenu the mythical cow, tormented with grief, spoke eagerly with joined palms to her, as follows: “O, cow the well wisher of all! I hope there is no great panic from any quarter to us.
vrm.2.74 For what occasion is your sorrow?” “Hearing the words of the intelligent Indra the prudent Kamadhenu who was skilled in expressing words, replied as follows: Heaven“ forefend that evil! O, Indra There is no danger whatsoever to you from any quarter.
vrm.2.74 Seeing these pair of bullocks, my sons, who are in hardship, being scorched by sun’s rays, becoming weak, being troubled by the man who ploughs the land and being immersed in grief, I am pitiably weeping O, Indra!”
vrm.2.74 There is no dearest one equal to a son indeed!” Seeing such a sacred cow weeping, whose hundreds of sons pervaded the entire world, Indra reckoned none whosoever as more than a son to a mother
vrm.2.74 His eyes inflamed, his clothes in disarray, and his all ornaments discarded, Bharata the prince and the tormentor of foes, lay on the earth, like a banner of Indra raised at the end of a ceremony
vrm.2.77 Miserable as he was to see the spot, Bharata fell weeping on the ground, as a flag staff fastened by any mechanical contrivance would drop down while being raised in honor of Indra
vrm.2.77 The two illustrious Tigers among men Bharata and Satrughna who had got up, appeared like two banners severally raised in honor of Indra soiled through rain and the sun.
vrm.2.80 Those camps, with many breast works of sand, moats surrounding each of them, streets as resplendent as sapphires, their crowns of terrets, the ramparts covered with stucco to protect then, the splendid banners, the skillfully laidout avenues, lofty mansions the tops of which were provided with dove cots, which flew about as it were in the air and in splendour, resembled the capitals of Indra.
vrm.2.81 People of high position like ministers and other welcomed the approaching Bharata in every way as they had welcomed Dasaratha and as Indra was welcomed by Devas.
vrm.2.87 "Wearing excellent arrows and a bow along with my vigilant kinsmen carrying their bows, I on my part remained near Lakshman, who was guarding Rama who vied with Indra
vrm.2.91 "I further invoke the three Gods Yama, Varuna and Kubera the guardians of the worlds with Indra as their king.
vrm.2.94 Having dwelt for some time in that mountain, Rama, who resembled God, who liked mountains and groves, who desired Seetha s happiness and himself delightful in his mind, began to point out the beauty of Chitrakuta to his consort, as Indra converses with Shachi the wife of Indra, saying: "O, my good lady! By seeing this beautiful mountain, neither the loss of kingdom nor the non existence of friends distresses my mind.
vrm.2.94 "This mountain of Chitrakuta with its abundance of roots fruits and water is more beautiful than Vasvankasara better known as Alaka the capital of Kubera, Nalini the capital of Indra better known as Amaravati and Uttarakuru the country of eternal beatitude.
vrm.2.97 "This earth, bounded by the sea is not hard to obtain for me, O the excellent man! I do not indeed wish even the position of Indra by unrighteousness.
vrm.2.99 performance, appearing like an extensive altar and it was adorned with bows plated with gold, like unto the weapons of Indra constructed for heroic exploits, having great power, the torments of their foes, graced with fearful arrows in their quivers, like unto the rays of the sun, bright as serpents with shining hoods, in the same way of Bhogavati the realm of Nagas, decked with a couple of swords encased in sheaths of gold, adorned with two shields decorated with flowers of gold, finger guards embroidered with gold and in different colours suspended on walls and which hut was unassailable by hordes of enemies as is a lion s cave to deer.
vrm.2.101 "Grant me, who am your true servant, a favour! This very day, as Indra himself, receive the royal anointing!" "Grant all these people and these widowed Queens, who have come here to see you, this felicity!"
vrm.2.103 Hearing that unpleasant thunder bolt of words spoken by Bharata, like a thunderbolt released by Indra in a battle, Rama the tormentator of his enemies, stretched forth his hands and fell on the ground, in the same manner as a tree covered at extremities with blossoms was cut off by an axe in the forest.
vrm.2.104 Then, Rama holding the feet of that priest, who was equal of Agni the fire and endowed with very great splendour, even as Indra would clasp the feet of Brihaspati, sat down by his side.
vrm.2.104 Seeing Rama in the garb of an ascetic, radiant in majesty, the extremely powerful Bharata, paying obeisance to him with joined palms, then took his place in his presence, as the devoted Indra sits before Brahma the Lord of creation.
vrm.2.106 "You, having been crowned thus, may proceed to Ayodhya along with us to rule it, like Indra having conquered all the worlds with his might, proceeds to his kingdom along with Devas.
vrm.2.107 "You too ought, likewise, to make our father, as a person having given a true promise, O Indra among kings, by getting yourself anointed to the crown without any delay.
vrm.2.108 Move around in Ayodhya as Indra does in heaven!" Dasaratha" is none to you nor you in anyway to him.
vrm.2.109 "Having performed ahundred sacrifices, Indra went to heaven.
vrm.2.118 "Eventhough the father of an unmarried girl be like Indra himself on earth, suffers indignity in the world from the suitor s men, no matter whether they are equal or inferior to him.
vrm.3.1 a The fourth part of Indra is the protector of people, called the king, and hence Oh! Raghava, the king is hailed, and hence he enjoys best and delightful fortune.
vrm.3.2 "Oh, Rama, you being the Indra like lord of all beings, and while you are being attended by an adherent like me, what for you worry yourself like a derelict? "He will now be felled with my arrow as I am enraged at him, and gone are his lives now, and indeed the earth shall drink his blood.
vrm.3.2 "Indeed, that which anger was there to me on Bharata when he desired kingdom, that anger I will now release on Viradha, as Indra released his Thunderbolt on the mountain.
vrm.3.3 And holding fast his spear that is similar to the Indra s Flagstaff he blaringly yelled a ghastly shriek, and thus he shone forth like the wide mouthed Death, ready to gulp.
vrm.3.3 The best wielder of weaponry Rama ripped that spear apart, which is akin to the Thunderbolt of Indra, and that which is like a blaze in the sky, with two arrows in the sky itself.
vrm.3.4 When his arms are mutilated that Rakshasa similar to a dark cloud is frustrated, fainted, and fell onto ground, like the mountain demolished by the Thunderbolt of Indra.
vrm.3.4 "Dead I am, oh! Manly tiger and a coequal of Indra in your strength.
vrm.3.5 b, Rama has seen Indra, the lord of three worlds, with a radiant body that has the coupled radiance of Sun and Fire, mounted on a great chariot that does not touch the earth, wearing greatly brilliant ornaments and attired in spotless dress, while the other divinities are attending, and many more selfsame great souls are worshipping him.
vrm.3.5 b, He saw the stainless Parasol of Indra, marvellously garlanded and shining forth, and the exemplary and invaluable royal fanning instruments with golden handles, which two best female Devas are handling and fanning at Indra s head sides with them.
vrm.3.5 a And the Gandharva s, Amara s, Siddha s and very many great sages as well are extolling Indra who is abiding in firmament.
vrm.3.5 On seeing Indra speaking there to sage Sharabhanga, Rama spoke to Lakshmana.
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 “And oh, manly tiger Lakshmana, those that are there in hundreds and hundreds around Indra, those youthful ones with their ear ornaments and swords in hands, with wide and broad chests, with club shaped arms, and clad in glimmering red garments, all are like Tigers, all are unapproachable, all of them are wearing ornamental chains on their chest place that are akin to flaring fires, and in their appearance, Soumitri, they always bear a look of twenty five year olds.
vrm.3.5 Then, on seeing Rama arriving there, Indra, bade farewell to Sage Sharabhanga and said this to the Devas attending him.
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.3.5 On the transit of that Thousand eyed Indra, Raghava with his adherents namely Lakshmana and Seetha, came nearby the Sage Sharabhanga, who is sitting nearby the altar of fire.
vrm.3.5 Then, Raghava enquired with sage about the arrival of Indra and Sage Sharabhanga narrated all that to him.
vrm.3.5 "Oh! Rama, that boon giver Indra wishes to take me to Brahma s abode, which is achieved by me by my arduous ascesis and that which is unattainable for them with their souls unconquered.
vrm.3.5 Thus said by Raghava, who is like Indra in strength, that supremely intellectual Sage Sharabhanga again spoke this sentence this way.
vrm.3.6 As with Indra, the ruler of divinities you are a similar ruler for us.
vrm.3.7 "The king of Gods and the chief invitee in hundred sacrifices Indra approached me, and that great deity said me that I have conquered all the worlds by my meritorious deeds.
vrm.3.7 That self respecting Rama replied the radiant sage with intense asceticism, a great soul and an advocate of truth by himself, as Indra would reply to Brahma.
vrm.3.9 "Then Indra came to that hermitage handling a sword, and donning a soldier s guise, to cause hindrance to that hermit s ascesis.
vrm.3.9 Indra" gave that best sword to store, there in that hermitage to that sage who is lasting in his ascesis, on a redeemable basis.
vrm.3.12 b, a Rama entered inside the hermitage and saw therein the sanctus of Brahma, Agni, Vishnu, Indra, Vivasvat the Sun god, Soma the Moon god, Bhaga, and the sanctusms of Kubera, are seen and passed by the three of them, sanctums of Dhaata, Vidhaata, santucm of Vayu, and also like that the sanctum of great soled Varuna the wielder of noose, and the sanctum of Gayatri, sanctum of Vasus, and the sanctum of Naga king, and even the sanctum of Garuda and the sanctum of Kaartikeya and the sanctum of Dharma b, a Then encircled by disciples the sage Agastya came out quickly, and Rama saw him who is glowing brilliant before all the other sages.
vrm.3.12 a "Also these two inexhaustible quivers packed with arrows that have the blaze of Ritual fire, and this sword decorated in gold together with its sheath made up of excellent golden are once given to me by Indra.
vrm.3.12 "The bow, these two quivers, arrows, and the sword, oh, Rama, the endower of grace, receive and wield them to triumph over the Rakshasas as Indra would wield Thunderbolt.
vrm.3.17 He whose face is radiant, arms lengthy, eyes large like lotus petals, stride like that of an Elephant, wearing bunches of hair tufts, delicate yet greatly vigorous, possessor of all kingly aspects, complexion deep blue like blue lotus, similar to Kamadeva in brilliance and in simile to Indra, the Rakshasi has seen such a Rama and became lovesick.
vrm.3.19 "Indeed, I do not find anyone who causes displeasure to me in this world, even among divinities including the thousand eyed Indra, the controller of Paka.
vrm.3.20 b, a Then Raghava took up his bow, arched it, and aiming at the targeted Rakshasas released arrows as Indra would release his Thunderbolts.
vrm.3.23 b, a "If I am infuriated I can eliminate even the king of Gods, wielder of Thunderbolt and a trekker on ruttish Elephant Iravata, namely Indra in a war, then why talk about these two humans.
vrm.3.25 Even if his body is gashed with those gruesome assault weapons Rama is not enfeebled, as with the enormous Mountain Meru that can withstand even if battered by very many highly blazing thunderbolts of Indra.
vrm.3.26 When Duushana s arms are thus sheared in the van of war, his gigantic mace slipped and spun in his own front, like the flagstaff with flag raised in honour of Indra, and collapsed
vrm.3.26 With those arrows that have golden tailpieces and sharp barbs, and that are dazzling like fuming ritual fires Rama felled the Rakshasas, as Thunderbolts of Indra will be felling gigantic trees.
vrm.3.26 Then on surveying that great Rakshasa force which is eliminated by Rama in that staggering war, Khara then marched on to reach Rama in a huge chariot, as with Indra who will march upraising his Thunderbolt.
vrm.3.28 On seeing the annihilation of the insufferable and mighty force of Rakshasas, even that of Duushana and Trishira by lone Rama, and thus to apprehend that the Rakshasa force is wholly destructed, that Rakshasa Khara became apprehensive, and then he lunged at Rama, as with Namuchi who once lunged at Indra.
vrm.3.28 Still infuriated Khara has drawn seven more arrows that equal the radiance of Indra s thunderbolts and hit Rama s armour in that war.
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.3.30 That particular arrow is made available to Rama through Sage Agastya by the king of Gods, namely Indra, because Indra is a sensible one about the future course of events, and he is also prosperous in securing impossible weaponry, and now Rama fitted such an arrow on his bow and released it towards Khara.
vrm.3.30 As with fall of Vritra or fall of Bali who are eliminated by Indra with his Thunderbolt, or as with the collapse of Namuchi who is eliminated by the same Indra just with forth or foam, Khara too is brought down.
vrm.3.30 "He that great resplendent one, the controller of Paka, and the destroyer of enemy s cities, namely Indra, once came to the meritorious hermitage of Sage Sharabhanga only for the purpose such an elimination of Rakshasas.
vrm.3.31 "Evoking indignation in me it is really impossible for Indra to be happy even for Kubera no for Yama no why them, even Vishnu cannot be happy.
vrm.3.31 "The question is whether that Rama arrived at Janasthana associated with Indra and along with all of the immortal Gods? Oh, Akampana, speak about it.
vrm.3.32 She saw Ravana who is fulgent with his own radiance, seated with ministers at his nearby in the midst of the divine Aircraft Pushpaka, as with Indra who will be sitting amidst Maruts.
vrm.3.32 One who is severally bruised in several combats of Devas and Asuras with the thunderbolts from the Vajra weapon of Indra, and one who is severally blotched on his chest when the prongs of the tusks of Airavata, the lordly Elephant of Indra, gored his chest, at such a Ravana Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.32 One who has twenty arms, ten faces and a broad chest, and a possessor of all regalia of Indra like white Parasol, white fanning instruments, colours and the like insigne, and at that brave one who is attributed with all of the kingly attributes, Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.32 b, a He who enviously devastated the divine gardens of Kubera, called Caitraratha, along with a divine Lake of Lotuses pertaining to the same Kubera, called Pushkarini, and the gardens of Indra, called Nandana, along with other paradisiacal gardens of Gods, Shuurpanakha saw such an envious Rakshasa.
vrm.3.32 He who is an extreme ultraist that expropriates the Soma juice oblation form the vessels of oblation in Vedic rituals, which Soma juice oblation is blest with Vedic hymns and kept separately by Vedic Brahmans, since it is intended and shall belong to Indra and other divinities, and she saw such a plunderer.
vrm.3.34 "Yanking out a bow with golden fillets, and that is similar to the bow of Indra in its shine, he strews candent iron arrows that simulate snakes with deadly poison.
vrm.3.34 b, a "As with a crop of grain devastated by a hailstorm of Indra, I could only see that best army while it is being annihilated with a downpour of arrows.
vrm.3.34 "So far I have not seen any goddess with such a comeliness a Gandharva female no a Yaksha female no a Kinnara female no and a woman, no, not on the face of earth! "To whom Seetha becomes a wife and around whom she gladly throws her arms after such a marriage, he lives more grandly than Indra in all the worlds.
vrm.3.35 Smashing the guard of iron grid completely and crashing the unbreakable diamond like strongroom in which the Ambrosia is safeguarded, then Garuda carried off Ambrosia from the palace of Indra.
vrm.3.37 Rama" is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all Gods he is the king of entire world.
vrm.3.40 "In this way my thinking is decided and it is lingering on in my heart, and it is impossible to roll back my mind or heart even for Indra coming along with Devas and Danavas.
vrm.3.40 "The kings with infinite vigour embody five constituents forces of Fire, Moon, Rain, Terminator, and that of Indra, the Administrator of Natural Forces.
vrm.3.40 "Oh, nightwalker, thus the kings being great souls personify the sultriness of Fire, sternness of Indra, softness of Moon, suppleness of Rain, and harshness of Terminator, and therefore in all situations they are respectable and reverential.
vrm.3.40 "When Rama is diverted from hermitage, Lakshmana as well, I will carry off Vaidehi effortlessly like the Thousand eyed Indra who once carried off Sachi Devi.
vrm.3.42 b, a One of its cheeks in the shade of a reddish lotus while the other in the hue of a bluish lotus, one of its ears is in the hue of bloomed blue lotus while the other is in the shade of a sapphire, while the shine of its stomach is like that of a best blue diamond, Indra niila maNi, and with a little upraised neck that deer has moved about there.
vrm.3.42 b, a With an upraised tail that shone forth in a tinge equal to the weapon of Indra, namely Rainbow, and with a complexion that is lustrous and dappled with many diverse gemlike dapples, that deer moved thereabout with a heart stealing aura.
vrm.3.43 Or else, does it exist in Nandana Gardens of Indra no, it cannot be there in the adjoins of Caitraratha Gardens of Kubera no, it will not be there, then how can there be some deer on earth which is similar to this! "Amazing are its hairlines with hair upturned at some places and down turned at other, and the golden spots embedded on the coat of the deer are glittery.
vrm.3.45 "Oh, auspicious one, unmarked is some combatant who can counterattack Rama from among Gods, humans, Gandharva s, Suparnas, Pisachas, Kinnara s, beasts, or oh, lady, even from horrendous Rakshasas, as Rama vies with Indra in any given war.
vrm.3.47 "I have avowed to adhere to such a husband Rama, who is inflexible like a sturdy mountain, comparable to lordly Indra, unshakable like a vast ocean.
vrm.3.47 "Even if you steal me away now, later when Indra similar Rama posits himself with his bow and arrows in hand on the battlefield, you cannot live on, and in the meanwhile you cannot digest me, as with a diamond swallowed along with a fly.
vrm.3.48 "Just by seeing rancour shot face of mine, oh, Maithili, all the Gods will quickly shoot off, even if Indra is leading them, then where is the question of their confronting me.
vrm.3.48 "My magnificent city known as Lanka is there on the other shore of the ocean, plethoric with all kinds of amenities, as well as with ghastly Rakshasas, which city will be on par with Indra s Amaravati, but for meekly Gods and meaningless souls.
vrm.3.48 "It may be possible to live after abducting Shaci Devi, the wife of Indra, somehow and anyhow there will be no liveability after abducting me, the wife of Rama.
vrm.3.48 "Oh, Rakshasa, un mirrored is the prettiness of prettyish Shaci Devi, and one may live long on forcibly snatching her away from the hands of the wielder of Thunderbolt, Indra, but to him who intimidates or abuses me or women like me, there will be no Moksha, release from the cycle of rebirth, even if he has consumed Amrita Ambrosia.
vrm.3.50 Let not the disastrous and glowing fire like eyes of Rama, which transmogrify so when he assumes fury, burn you down as the Thunderbolt of Indra once burnt the Vritra.
vrm.3.51 "You mean minded Ravana, you abduct her whose husband wields arrows that touch off like the Thunderbolt of Indra, and this spite of yours is definitely for the destruction of all the Rakshasas.
vrm.3.55 "It is impossible to assail this Lanka even for Indra with all of the Devas and Danavas, as an ocean roundly enshrouds this Lanka which is hundred Yojana s witdthwise.
vrm.3.59 Raghava is undefeatable even if all Gods come battling along with Indra in their van.
vrm.3.66 World s disposition is this way only, even if Nahusha, the son Yayati, has become an egalitarian with Indra, writhe touched him off.
vrm.3.66 Oh, tigerly man, we hear that whether Gods like Indra et al.
vrm.3.68 Even those two, Rama and Lakshmana, on performing water oblations in respect of that best bird Jatayu, and on assertively giving thought to the information given by Jatayu, they like the chiefs of Gods, namely Vishnu and Indra, went to southerly woods when their mind is set to search for Seetha.
vrm.3.70 as the words of Indra came to his memory, and he said these words in reply.
vrm.3.71 "Oh, great dextrous Rama with great daring and dashing, as to how the physique of sun, moon, and even that of Indra is there now, my physique was also like that earlier, an unbelievable mien and renowned in all the three worlds.
vrm.3.71 b, a "Oh, Lakshmana, you may know as the most handsome son of Danu, and this misshapen form has chanced on me owing the ire of Indra in battlefield.
vrm.3.71 When longevity is acquired by me what Indra can do to me.
vrm.3.71 thus relying upon that kind of certitude, I jousted with Indra in a bout.
vrm.3.71 b, a "But the Thunderbolt that has a hundred cutting edges and that which is launched from Indra s hand has rammed by head and thighs into my body.
vrm.3.71 Then Indra said this to me, Let the Grandparent Brahma s word about your longevity come true.
vrm.3.71 Thus Indra spared me to me.
vrm.3.71 "When I said to Indra this way, Indra devised for me Yojana long arms, also that way a rapier fanged mouth in my paunch.
vrm.3.71 b, a Indra" has also said to me, as and when Rama hacks off your arms along with Lakshmana in a conflict, then you can go to heaven.
vrm.3.71 Thus Indra said to me and vanished.
vrm.3.72 Sugreeva, who is vengefully reneged by his brother Vali, the son of Indra.
vrm.4.1 "If that devot lady Seetha is found, and also if we were to stay here only, I neither think about Indra s throne in Heavens nor Ayodhya s throne, which is like Indra s throne on the earth.
vrm.4.3 Dauntless, bold and brave are you with sharp glances of Lions, wielding bows like that of Indra s bow you are the real enemy destroyers.
vrm.4.3 And these awesome bows are polished with odd things are smooth, and they are brightening like the gilded Thunderbolt of Indra.
vrm.4.5 b, a "Unfailing are these arrows of mine, scorchers like sun, sharp ones tied with eagle feathers, similar to Indra s Thunderbolts, sharp are their point and straight is their egress, similar to enraged snakes, and these arrows of mine will be speeded up to fall on that vicious Vali.
vrm.4.6 Your wife is as good as an indigestible foodstuff made with poison, indigestive even to Indra, put together with all Devas and Danavas.
vrm.4.8 "That is thus only," said Rama before Lakshmana, which Lakshmana is sagacious, resplendent and who vies with Indra, about what is said by Sugreeva, which Sugreeva is by now soft natured in his looks, doffing off his jittery look.
vrm.4.8 "These are my arrows winged from pinion of the hern, oh, highly fortunate Sugreeva, these that are decorated in gold sparkle sharply like the Thunderbolts of Indra, and they are begotten from the reed forest of Kartikeya, ends tied with Eagles feathers for fins, smooth are their nodes, sharp are their tips that pierce sharply, and these will be like enraged snakes.
vrm.4.11 "Oh, war expert Dundubhi, Indra s son is there, a brave and glorious one by name Vali, and he is now presiding over the matchlessly pompous city Kishkindha.
vrm.4.11 "He is a highly intelligent one and a war expert too, and he is the capable one to give you a duel, like Indra to Namuchi.
vrm.4.11 "Then Vali who is similar to Indra in his fortitude fought with him with his fists, knees and feet, and like that with boulders and trees.
vrm.4.11 "While each is assaulting the other in that fight between that Vanara and Rakshasa, that Rakshasa is impaired and Indra s son Vali toughened.
vrm.4.12 "You with your arrows, oh, best one among men, are capable of eliminating all the Gods including Indra, oh, lord, then why to speak of Vali.
vrm.4.12 Today" on gaining a kind hearted friend like you, who is similar to Indra and Rain god who accord favour on their own, my distress is gone and my joy is heightened.
vrm.4.13 "This hermitage that has encircling trees for its compound wall has become highly unassailable even for Indra together with all Devas and Danavas.
vrm.4.13 Then Rama s bother Lakshmana, Rama, and other Vanaras wielding their weapons and flaring with their upsurged fiery again came to eliminate that enemy Vali to the city that is ruled by the brawn of the same Vali, the son of Indra.
vrm.4.14 b, a As Indra fructifies the sprouted paddy field I will make happen my promise, hence leave off your perplexity.
vrm.4.15 "Be graceful and it behove you to listen to my small but expedient talk, and following up rancour alone is unbecoming of you, thereby your confrontation with the Prince of Kosala will be unpardonable for his dynamism equals that of Indra.
vrm.4.16 Among those two there happened a deadly fight time and again using trees with branches, peaks of mountains, their own nails that are similar to the razor sharp edges of thunderbolts, and with fists, knees, feet, and arms, like the fight that once chanced between Vritra and Indra.
vrm.4.16 Like the flag that will be raised in honour of Indra during the month of ashvin on a full moon day, but thrown onto earth along with its flagstaff after the festival, Vali with depleted energy and dissipated vitality slowly fell onto ground, and with tears blocking throat he moaned piteously.
vrm.4.16 That Indra s son Vali, dampened with blood and sweat, then looked like just felled Ashoka tree which has stemmed up and so far standing high on a mountain with fully bloomed clusters of its blood red flowers, and when his anima is undone he even looked like the flagstaff on which a flag is raised in honour of Indra, but which is altogether dislodged and abandoned on the ground.
vrm.4.17 He who glittered with pure golden ornaments, that Vali fell down on earth while all of his limbs sank to dust, like the flag of Indra when released from its ropes.
vrm.4.17 That superb and gem studded golden pendent given by Indra sustained that Vanara chief s lives, resplendence and brilliance.
vrm.4.17 Then on seeing him who has fallen in war, the one with golden pendant, enormously chested, mightily armed, face golden, eye greenish, but who is like a fire extinct of its flame who is like Indra in unassailability and like Upendra in indomitability and who like Yayati who has fallen from heaven, as well like the sun who falls onto earth from solar orbit when Time ender flings him at the end of era such as he is, on seeing that son of Indra, who forsooth has fallen, Rama neared him followed by Lakshmana.
vrm.4.19 "When that tigerly fly jumper Vali whose brilliance is similar to Indra is killed all this vanara force felt defenceless and fled.
vrm.4.19 She saw Vali who is a flinger of loftiest mountains as with Indra flinging his thunderbolt, who is a blaster as with great gusty winds, and who is a roarer as with a cluster of great black clouds.
vrm.4.19 He who equals Indra in the invasion of enemies, a violent thunderer at the opponent thunderers, a brave one felled by still brave one, and who is like a best animal killed by a tiger for the purpose of flesh, and quietened like black cloud at the end of downpour, At him she saw.
vrm.4.24 "As Indra acquired sin on killing Vishvarupa, the son of Tvastha, I too derived a sin by killing my brother, which sin is absolutely unimaginable for quantification, totally undesirable at any given time, wholly discardable by sagacious souls, and a disgustingly horrible spectre of brotherly hate.
vrm.4.24 Earth", waters, trees and women took the burden of Indra s sins, but who in name will bear the burden of this sin of mine, that too the sin of a Vanara, who wishes to share?
vrm.4.24 She on whom misfortune has chanced and who is anguished, that noble lady Tara went very quickly with highly squirming movements to the near of the highly exalted soul Rama, who matches Indra in his valour and an unreachable one for his enemies.
vrm.4.26 b, a When that prodigiously venturesome arch vanara Sugreeva has entered the palace his cohorts anointed him as Gods would anoint the Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.4.26 Thus those have anointed Sugreeva with those pellucid and well perfumed waters poured from golden vessels through the auspicious horns of bulls as revealed in scriptures and as great sages have defined, which anointment is like eight of Vasu Gods anointing the Thousand eyed Indra.
vrm.4.26 The valiant Sugreeva who is by now the king of Vanaras army, then apprised the great souled Rama about his grand anointment, and thus he not only regained his wife Ruma but also secured the kingdom, like the chief of divinities Indra.
vrm.4.28 the gift of Indra.
vrm.4.28 "In forests moving about are the select Elephants that are rutting, the ideal bulls that are delighting, the peerless Lions that are striding, lofty are the pleasant mountains that are standing, the choicest kings are withdrawing from their campaigns, and the noblest of Gods, Indra, is playing with the clouds.
vrm.4.28 Lords" of People will be anointed only by their people who bring in the water pots on their shoulders to anoint their king, and that king then shows his own propitious aspect of a humanly king, whereas the Lord of Mountains is being anointed by the water from the cloudy pots, sent by Lord Indra and wafted hitherto by Vayu, showing his own serene as well as propitious aspect of his divine nature on earth.
vrm.4.29 On observing clear sky on which back clouds and electric charges have disappeared, on which Saarasa Birds are vibrantly bustling and delightful moonshine is coated, and even on observing him whose riches are abundant, who has slowed down in accumulating probity and prosperity from the viewpoint of rectitude, highly engrossed in the course of unvirtuous profligates, whose heart is given to undisturbed privacy, and the one who on achieving his goals and dearest longings has turned away from other pursuits, who regained his choicest wife, and gained highly covetable Lady Tara, thus, who is always indulged in females, merrymaking day in and day out on a par with Indra, which Indra will be sporting with the cohorts of Gandharva and Apsara females, thereby he who is making much of his fortune on getting rid of other problems, besides, he who reposed the activity of kingdom in his ministers, yet, who does not make eyes at those ministers as he is doubtless of the kingdom which was once disrupted from his control, because, that kingdom is looked after well by the very same ministers, as such he is wallowing in promiscuity, such as he is, seeking the presence of such a Sugreeva, king of Vanaras and an explicator, and even on winning his grace, he who is forthright regarding norms of ethics, an exceptional knower of subtleties of transactions and the rubrics of duty and time, that golden tongued Hanuma, the son of Vayu, spoke sweet words that are reasonable, heart pleasing,
vrm.4.30 So on and so forth that best one among men and the son of a king keened over, like a Rain cuckoo which will be keen on Indra, the king of divinities, for rainy water.
vrm.4.30 "On satisfying mother earth with rainwater and on effectuating the crops on earth, the Thousand eyed Indra is complacent as his task is effectuated, whereas my task is yet to take off.
vrm.4.31 That right minded and well informed Lakshmana who is bent on doing only that which is agreeable and beneficial to his elder brother, then swallowing his exasperation and wielding a bow which is shining forth like the bow of Indra, and which is standing out like a peaking mountain proceeded towards the palace of the Vanara, namely Sugreeva, and with such a bow he appeared to be the peaking Mountain Mandhara and like the Era Ender.
vrm.4.31 Those two ministers sitting around and nearby Sugreeva, who is seated like the king of Maruts, namely Indra, on appeasing him with meaningful and expressive words they spoke to him in this way.
vrm.4.32 "On his part Raghava tossed off his fear distantly and eliminated Vali, whose valour equals that of Indra, only to fulfil your cherish.
vrm.4.32 "It will be unseemly to fend off the ruling of Rama, or of his brother Lakshmana even in your imagination, oh, king of Vanaras, as your heart is aware of the humanly tenacity of that Rama, whose resplendence vies with that of Indra, and who is associated with selfsame Lakshmana, isn t it.
vrm.4.33 The grand palace of the king of Vanaras, Sugreeva, which vies with the palace of Indra is inaccessibly immured in a whitely mountain.
vrm.4.33 Some more providential and heart pleasing trees available there are the endowment of Indra, which in shine are equal to blackish rainy clouds, yielding divine flowers and fruits, and casting cool shades.
vrm.4.33 Lakshmana has then seen him who is seated like the Sun in firmament on a choicest golden seat which is elaborated with worthiest upholstery, whose body is remarkable besides being spruced up with excellent ornaments, who is wearing exquisite garlands and robes, who is glorious with a marvellous appearance and even appeared as an unconquerable as with Indra, and who is presently enwreathed with vanara females who are also bedecked with precious ornamentation and garlands, and on seeing him Lakshmana with franticly bloodshot eyes appeared as the Terminator.
vrm.4.34 On seeing Lakshmana, the son of Dasharatha, who is exasperated and exhaling heavily, and who searing in the anguish of his brother is flaring up like a firestorm, Sugreeva hopped up from his golden seat and tottered like the highly decorated flagstaff of Indra, which will be wobbly before it is thrown to ground after the ritual.
vrm.4.39 "There is no wonder, oh, enemy flamer, if Indra gives rain, or if that thousand rayed sun makes the sky undark, or if the moon makes night shiny with his moonshine, so also oh, gentle one, if a true friend of your kind gladdens his indigent friend, there is no wonder.
vrm.4.39 "As soon as possible I wish to eliminate that Ravana with sharp arrows, as has been done by the enemy slyer Indra when he eliminated the insolent father of Sachi Devi, namely Puloma.
vrm.4.41 And the Thousand eyed Indra will always be visiting that Mountain Mahendra on every auspicious day.
vrm.4.41 b, a "Anywise Seetha is searchable especially there on that island because it is the dwelling place of the king of Rakshasas Ravana, who is the coequal of Indra in his resplendence and which vile minded Rakshasa is to be rooted out.
vrm.4.42 Sugreeva ordered the superb Vanara son of great sage Maricha, called Arcishman, to western direction, who is a surrounded with exceptional and braving Vanaras, a coequal to Indra in his resplendence, endowed with brilliance and bravery and whose speed equals that of the son of Vinata, namely Garuda, the Eagle vehicle of Vishnu.
vrm.4.43 "Those who have gone to the sphere of Indra, and those who have gone to the sphere of Brahma can clearly see that lordly Mountain Soma, situated in the vast of ocean from the vast of heavens.
vrm.4.51 Indra", the Administrator of Worlds and destroyer of enemy citadels, on taking His Thunderbolt eliminated Maya, when that eminent Danava was engaged with an Apsara, a paradisiacal Apsara, called Hema.
vrm.4.53 "That highly impassable cavity is contrived by Maya and it is abundant with trees, water, eatables and potables, and there is no fear even from Indra in that cavity, nor from Raghava, nor from Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras.
vrm.4.54 Tara, like Indra who once listened to the un listenable teachings of Asura s mentor, namely Shukracarya, as that Angada is overly enervated to fulfil the concerns of the king Sugreeva.
vrm.4.54 "Indeed, once Indra thudded his Thunderbolt on this very underground illusory place, but that act was indeed a trivial deed for that Thunderbolt made a single Rakshasa sized aperture to eliminate a single Rakshasa, Maya, which we now call Riksha bila, Black Hole, nevertheless Lakshmana will splinter whole of this Black Hole with his acute arrows, as if it is leafy bowl.
vrm.4.54 "There are numerous iron arrows with Lakshmana that are kindred to Thunderbolt of Indra, whose punch will be equalling that of Thunderbolt and Lightning Flashes, and which are the splitters of mountains.
vrm.4.58 Once, when the elimination of Vritra was taking place at the hand of Indra, we two eagle brothers sportively desiring to surpass each
vrm.4.62 On knowing Seetha s plight Indra gives a nectarean food for Vaidehi, which food is renowned to be Nectarous and unattainable even by Gods.
vrm.4.62 But on getting that food, and on knowing that it is from Indra, Maithili takes up the first morsel and dispenses it on the surface of earth for Rama, saying.
vrm.4.62 That deed aimed at the wellbeing of both those princes, Rama and Lakshmana, and of Brahmans, teaches, sages and also of Indra is to be done by you alone, isn t it! Even I wish to see those brothers, Rama and Lakshmana, but I do not wish to bear lives prolongedly, hence I castaway my mortal body.
vrm.4.64 When those troops of Vanara army stood encircling Angada, it beamed forth like the army of Gods encircling Indra.
vrm.4.66 Oh, mighty Vanara, even on seeing you who are coming near the vault of heaven, Indra is captivated by anger and by his effulgence he catapulted his Thunderbolt at you.
vrm.4.66 On scrutinising that you are unhurt even after hit by Thunderbolt, oh, ablest Hanuma, the Thousand eyed Indra kind heartedly gave you a choicest boon saying that your death occurs only by your own volition.
vrm.4.67 I will fetch that Elixir from the hands of Self created Brahma, or from hands of Indra even if he is wielding his Thunderbolt just on fleetly triumphing over him.
vrm.5.1 He saluted with joined palms to the Sun God, Lord Indra, God of Wind, Lord Brahma and Bhutas and decided to leave.
vrm.5.1 The tail of Hanuma, the son of Vayu floating in the sky, being risen up looked like the pillar erected in honour of Indra.
vrm.5.1 Having tranersed, by the dint of his strength over the ocean which was infested with Danavas and Pannagas and endowed with series of huge waves, and alighting on the shore of the great sea, Hanuma then saw the City of Lanka having a resemblance of Amaravati, the capital City of Indra.
vrm.5.3 Quickly approaching that city of Lanka which was protected by Rakshasas, like the the auspicious city of Bhogavati being protected by Nagas moving about, spread with cloud illumined by flashes of lightening, served by pathways of stars, witha light breeze like the Indra s city of Amaravati, surrounded by a wall with a golden hue, decorated by flags with sounds from groups of small bells.
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 Hanuma thought thus This is heaven! This is indeed the abode of Devas! This is a city of Indra.
vrm.5.10 That Hanuma also saw the wealthy Ravana s arms tied with golden armlets thrown apart, resembling flag staffs raised in honor of Indra.
vrm.5.11 That Seetha is not suitable to sleep separated from Rama, will not eat, will not decorate also, not suited to drink a beverage, to reach another man even though if he were Indra because there is indeed no one equaling Rama even among Gods.
vrm.5.13 Salutations to Rudra the god of destruction, Indra Yama and Vayu.
vrm.5.18 While He was going only a hundred of women followed that Ravana like Deva and Gandharva women following Indra.
vrm.5.20 "Like Keerthi got by Hiranyakasipu from Indra s hand, Rama is not suited to get you from my hands.
vrm.5.21 "Drawn out Vajrayudha, the weapon of Indra may spare some one like you.
vrm.5.21 "Like the great sound of Vajrayudha hurled by Indra, you will hear a loud sound which is sonorous of Rama s bow.
vrm.5.21 "To you like that, enmity with those two is like the enmity of one hand of Vruttasura with two hands of Indra and it is not persevering for you to be an opponent with them.
vrm.5.22 "In all the three worlds except you who even by heart will desire me who am the wife of virtuous Rama like Sachi the wife of Indra.
vrm.5.24 "Like the highly fortunate Sachi who waits upon Indra, like Arundhati on Vasishta, like Rohini on the Moon God, like Lopamudra on Agastya, like Sukanya on Chyavana, like Savitri on Satyavanta, like Srimati on Kapila, like Madayanti on Saudasa, like Kesini on Sagara, like Damayanti the daughter of Bhima, devoted to husband Nala, in the same way I am devoted to my husband Rama, the best in Ikshvaku dynasty.
vrm.5.24 "Obtain as husband Ravana who is the lord of all Rakshasas, bold and handsome, like Indra the lord of Devas, able one and liberal with a pleasing appearance to all.
vrm.5.24 "O auspicious one! Like Svaha the wife of the Agni, like Sachi the wife of Indra become mistress of all worlds.
vrm.5.31 He was born in the lineage of emperors and was equivalent to Indra in prowess.
vrm.5.32 for what reason?" "My salutation to Brihaspati the Lord of eloquence, together with Indra the wielder of a thunderbolt, to Brahma the self existent Lord and to the Lord of Fire eating the oblations! Let whatever words spoken by this Vanara be true! Let them not be untrue!"
vrm.5.35 He is equal to the sun in splendour, earth in endurance, Brihaspati in intelligence and Indra in fame.
vrm.5.36 For that reason, he did not take you back soon, as Indra the destroyer of strong holds did not take back Sachi, his wife.
vrm.5.36 O Seetha! You will see soon Rama on the Prasravana mountain, like Indra seated on the back of Airavata, the chief of Elephants.
vrm.5.37 I now well the energy of Rama, as Shachi the wife of Indra knows the energy of Indra
vrm.5.37 "O Seetha! Now itself, I shall cause you to reach Rama who is staying at Prasravana Mountain, even as Agni hands over the oblations offered in the sacrifices to Indra
vrm.5.37 "The mighty Rama, with a gusto to see you, is staying in a hermitage, even as Indra the destroyer of strong holds sitting on the back of Airavata the Elephant.
vrm.5.37 "Who can withstand seeing in battle that mighty Rama, dazzling like fire fanned by wind, wielding his conspicuous bow and having prowess equal to that of Indra together with Lakshmana?" "O the best of Vanaras! In battle, who can endure Rama resembling the sun at noon time, with his arrows resembling its rays, the destroyer in battle, stationed like a mythical Elephant in rut, along with Lakshmana? "O the excellent of Vanaras! You, as such, soon bring my husband here along with Lakshmana, and the chiefs of army.
vrm.5.38 "That Crow, the best among Birds, seems to be the son of Indra staying in mountains and moving with a peed equal to the wind.
vrm.5.38 "Roaming the three worlds in search of a saviour, that crow was abandoned by Indra its father, the Devas and the sages.
vrm.5.38 I know your non acquiescence, imperturbability, profoundness like an ocean, as Lord of the earth including the oceans and as equal to Indra
vrm.5.39 "That Rama is capable of enduring even the sun god, even Indra the god of rain or even Yama son of the sun god a battle field especially for your sake.
vrm.5.39 You are indeed having Rama your husband as your protector like Shachi having Indra her husband as a protector.
vrm.5.40 "How are you, the valiant man equal to Indra and Varuna, ignore Seetha who was taken away and now staying in the midst of these Rakshasas?"
vrm.5.41 "This excellent grove of this cruel Ravana, with its various kinds of trees and creepers, which is pleasing to the eyes and the mind, is looking like Nandana, Indra s paradise.
vrm.5.42 "He may be a messenger of Indra or the messenger of Kubera or even a messenger sent by Rama to search for Seetha.
vrm.5.43 Seeing the edifice burning, that Hanuma killing those hundred Rakshasas, like Indra killing Rakshasas with his thunderbolt and gloriously staying in the sky, spoke the following words: Thousands" of Vanaras like me, possessing gigantic bodies of strength, were sent on the orders of Sugreeva.
vrm.5.46 "This evil spirit may be some being evolved for our sake by Indra with a strength of his askesis.
vrm.5.46 It is such an evil spirit created by Indra.
vrm.5.46 "The three worlds including Indra, Suras, Asuras and humans are not fit to stand before you in the battle field.
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.5.47 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 Indra and other Devas perceived your performance with your missiles acquired by propitiating Pitamaha Brahma.
vrm.5.48 Devas" together with troops of Maruts joining Indra were not able to endure the strength of your missiles in battle.
vrm.5.48 That Indrajit, alike Indra, ascended a chariot with unchecked speed and yoked with four sharp toothed Tigers, having their swiftness similar to Garuda the king of Eagles.
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 “Since I am being protected by Brahma, Indra and the wind god, I do not have fear, eventhough I am fastened by the missile.
vrm.5.49 He was being reassured by counselors knowing the secret of good counsel and other Rakshasas with auspicious minds, as Indra is reassured by Devas.
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.5.50 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 "There was a king named Dasaratha, having chariots, Elephants and Horses, like a father to the people and endowed with a splendour equal to that of Indra.
vrm.5.51 "Even Indra, in person, cannot attain happiness if he does any harm to Rama.
vrm.5.54 He is either Indra wielding a thunderbolt, or Yama, or Varuna, or Vayu or Agni or Rudra or Arka or Kubera or Soma.
vrm.5.57 The auspicious Angada encircled by many Vanaras there, waited like Indra who was waited upon by Devas in heaven.
vrm.5.58 They used to wander the entire earth freely, hurting the people!" Hearing that behaviour of those mountains, the venerable Indra the destroyer of Paka, chopped their wings into a thousand pieces by using his thunderbolt.
vrm.5.58 O child! I, on my part, was hurled into the great ocean by the high souled wind god, your father and was liberated from the clutches of Indra.
vrm.5.58 For, Rama, having a prowess equal to that of Indra is indeed excellent in supporting righteousness.
vrm.5.58 "She spoke to Ravana, smitten with love, the following sweet words: O Ravana having a prowess similar to that of Indra! Of what need is with Seetha to you?"
vrm.5.59 “In the battle, I can blow out the missiles presided over by Indra Brahma the creator, Rudra the god of destruction, Vayu the wind god, Varuna and even those missiles even if they are difficult to be looked at, employed by Indrajit Ravanas’ eldest son.
vrm.5.59 The auspicious Seetha is devoted to Rama in all ways, giving her undivided thought to Rama like Shachi the goddess, giving her concern to Indra the destroyer of strong holds.
vrm.5.66 "The jewel, which was found in the waters and recommended by the good, had been presented to him earlier by the intelligent Indra who was highly pleased in Yajna, a sacrificial rite intended to propitiate him.
vrm.5.67 "That crow, foremost of the Birds was indeed the son of Indra dwelling in the middle of the mountains and equal in speed to the wind.
vrm.5.67 "Forsaken by all the Devas, Indra, its father and the sages too, that crow did not find a protector even after going round all the three worlds heaven, earth and the lower regions.
vrm.6.2 “Without building a bridge across the sea, the dreadful abode of Varuna Lanka cannot be defeated even by Devas and Danavas including Indra.
vrm.6.4 “I myself, mounted on the shoulders of Hanuman, like Indra on Airavata, will march in the centre of my troops, duly cheering the multitude of army.
vrm.6.10 How Rama even along with Indra and the Devas can stand before me in battle?” Ravana, who annihilated the army of Devas and who was very powerful with an impetuous valour, thus spoke and then sent away Vibhishana, who had spoken honestly.
vrm.6.12 "I will obtain maximum prosperity, while abiding with you, as Indra obtains properity while abiding with Moon, Planets and Stars as well as Maruts.
vrm.6.12 I shall do battle with the two brothers, even if they are Indra and the Surya or the Agni and the Vayu or Kubera and Varuna.
vrm.6.12 "Entering the combat with a mountain sized body and fiery teeth, roaring the while and attacking with an immense bludgeon, I shall strike terror in Indra himself!" "Even before Rama strikes me once more with a second arrow, I shall drink his blood.
vrm.6.14 “Even if you are protected by the sun god, or by Maruts nor even seated in the lap of Indra or god of Death nor if you have penetrated into the regions of heaven or under the earth you will not be spared by the arrows of Rama.
vrm.6.14 Ravana“ or Triseersha, with great strength or Nikumbha the son of Kumbhakarna or Indrajit or yourself are not capable to withstand Rama, who is equal in strength to Indra, in battle.
vrm.6.15 “How can I, with great valor, who suppressed the arrogance of even the Devas and who made the lives of even excellent of the Daityas miserable, not capable of conquering the two princes who are ordinary human beings?” Hearing those words of Indrajit, who was equal to Indra, dangerous to be approached, and possessing great vital power, Vibhishana the excellent one among bearers of weapons spoke then the following highly meaningful words:
vrm.6.18 Let him get our friendship too” Hearing those words of Sugreeva, Rama the king of men, as acknowledged by Sugreeva, held meeting with Vibhishana, as Indra once met Garuda the king of Birds.
vrm.6.19 Kumbhakarna, my elder brother born after Ravana, who is valiant and highly powerful, has enough strength to fight against Indra in battle.
vrm.6.19 “O, Rama the tiger among men! Why not Vibhishana’s words, which are soothing at this time of crisis be agreeable also to us?” “Without constructing a bridge across this fiery ocean, which is an abode of Lord Varuna, even the Devas and Asuras along with Indra cannot reach the city of Lanka.
vrm.6.20 “O, stupid Ravana! You along with your younger brother will not be left unkilled by Rama, even if you are protected by all including Indra or even if you have disappeared by virtue of conjuring trick or obtained, the solar orbit or entered the nethermost subterranean region or even if approached the lotus feet of Shiva “I do not see any protector to you as such in the three worlds, nor do I see any Pisachas or a Rakshasa or a Gandharva or an Asura coming forward to protect you.
vrm.6.21 Swaying his terrific bow and making the earth tremble by his violence Rama released the arrow resembling a powerful thunderbolt of Indra.
vrm.6.24 Neither by the thousand eyed Indra nor by Varuna in person in a combat, nor by Yama with the fire of his arrows, nor by Kubera in person, can I be able to be attacked in a great battle.
vrm.6.25 "O, Ravana! Tomorrow, at break of day I will cast my dreadful anger on you and your army as Indra wielding a thunderbolt casts the thunderbolt on Rakshasas.
vrm.6.25 "Where the four eminent persons who are equal to the protector of the worlds, the valiant ones skilled in the use of weapons and of proven prowess namely Rama the son of Dasaratha, the illustrious Lakshmana, the great resplendent Vibhishana and Sgreeva whose valour is equal to Indra arestationed at the same place, they can pluck up the city of Lanka with its ramparts and arches and transplant it elswhere, even if all the Vanaras keep aloof.
vrm.6.26 "This Angada, a worthy son of Vali and always dear to Sugreeva, is coming forwards for Rama s interests, as Varuna is to Indra s.
vrm.6.26 "The one who is like a great cloud, enveloping the space and who stays in teh middle of Vanara warriors like Indra the great voice of whose Vanaras wishing for battle is heard like the roll of drums, is the General named Panasa, who is always invincible in battle.
vrm.6.27 By the intelligent Jambavan, a great help was rendered to Indra in a battle between Devas and Asuras and many boons were obtained.
vrm.6.27 “He who, walking on all fours touches with his flanks, a mountain situated at a distance of one Yojana eight miles and reaching an object one Yojana high, obtains it with his body, whose huge form no other four begged animal is having, by which intelligent Vanara, battle was given earlier to Indra on a field of battle but no defeat was sustained by him, he is a commander of commanders and the grand father of Vanaras, famous as Samnadana by name.
vrm.6.27 “This Samnada, whose striding prowess is equal to that of Indra was born of a youthful Gandharva maiden and krishnavartman for the purpose of helping the Devas in a combat between Devas and Asuras.
vrm.6.27 “This excellent one among the Vanaras and this army chief of Vanaras, taking shelter in Mandara the foremost of mountains and the mountain called ushirabija alongside the River Ganga, passes his life happily like unto Indra himself.
vrm.6.28 “Nearby is a warrior, dark of hue with eyes like lotuses, a chief warrior among Ikshvakus, his heroism is well known in the world, his sense of duty never wavers, nor does he ever transgress the righteousness, he knows to loose Brahmas’ weapon and is conversant with Veda, he is the most learned of the Vedic scholars, he shatters the firmament with his arrows, and rends even the earth, his anger is akin to that of Death, his valour equal to that of Indra his consort is Seetha who was taken away by you from a place called Janasthana, he is Rama who has come to wage war on you, O king!” “This man, having the radiance of pure gold, with a broad chest, having red eyes, with black and curled hair, standing at the right side of Rama, he is called Lakshmana, who is interested in the care and welfare of his brother, skilled in leadership of combat and excellent among the wielders of all weapons.
vrm.6.29 Beholding those foremost of Vanara leaders pointed out by Shuka the most valiant Lakshmana Ramas’ right arm, his own brother Vibhishana standing close to Rama, the terribly powerful Sugreeva the king of all Vanaras, the strong Angada grandson of Indra the wielder of thunderbolt, the powerful Hanuman, the imincible Jambavan, Sushena, Kumuda, Nila, Nala the excellent of Vanaras, Gaja, Gavaksha, Sharabha, Mainda and Dvivida that Ravana his heart became agitated a little, was enraged and then abused those two heroes Shuka and Sarana who had completed their report.
vrm.6.30 Another one is the son of the teacher Brihaspati of Indra, called Kesari by whose son Hanuman the Rakshasas were destroyed.
vrm.6.30 “Here too is the virtuous Lakshmana, resembling the most excellent Elephant among Elephants, in the path of whose arrows, even Indra himself could not survive Sweta“ and Jyotimukha, the sons of the sun god, a Vanara called Hemakuta, another son of Varuna, Nila the son of Visvakarma the strong and the best of Vanaras, as well as that mighty and swift Durdhara the son of Vasus are all here.
vrm.6.31 O, Foolish one, with scant virtue and failed purpose! You think yourself as wise! O, Seetha! Hear about the dreadful killing of your husband in battle, as the killing of the Vritra at the hands of Indra
vrm.6.33 “It is not possible to kill in this manner even Vanaras, who perform fighting with trees, in as much as they are fully protected by Rama, even as Devas are protected by Indra their lord” “O, Seetha! Rama, who is endowed with long and well rounded arms, an illustrious man, who is large chested, a man of great energy, an archer well known in the world, a man endowed with muscularity, a righteous minded man, a person of celebrity on earth, a man of eternal strength, a protector for himself and for others, while together with his brother Lakshmana, a man of high descent, a knower of doctrines of conduct and behavior, the killer of a stream of enemy forces, a man of inconceivable strength and valor, a venerable man and an annihilator of adversaries, has not been killed.
vrm.6.33 “Your consort along with Lakshmana will show his valor against the Rakshasas, like Indra along with Vishnu the lord of preservation, the annihilator of enemies exhibited his strength over his adversaries.
vrm.6.39 Thick with Champaka, Ashoka, Vakula Sala and palmyra trees, covered with groves of Tamala and Panasa trees, surrounded with rows of Nagakesara trees, Lanka looked splended on all sides like the city of Amaravati reigned by Indra with green lawns and variegated avenues and with beautiful trees of various kinds like Hintala, Arjuna, Nipa Saptaparna in full flowering, Tilaka, Karnikara and Patal whose crests were laden with flowers and which were intertwined with climbers laden with multi coloured flowers and red tender leaves.
vrm.6.41 “O, Vanara of great strength, equal to Indra and Varuna! If you have not returned, though I am conversant with your valour, this was my pre determined resolve that having killed Ravana in fight with his sons forces and chariots, I should have installed Vibhishana as king of Lanka, placing the kingdom of Ayodhya in the hands of Bharata and renounced my life.
vrm.6.41 The Rakshasas, who in their valour equaled Indra the ruler of Gods, seeing themselves besieged, as by clouds, were struck with sudden terror.
vrm.6.43 The enraged Indrajit struck the valiant Angada who can tear asunder the enemy forces with a mace, like Indra with his thunder bolt.
vrm.6.45 “When I enter into combat, making myself invisible, even Indra is not able to see or approach me.
vrm.6.45 Pierced in their vital parts, exhausted, and covered all over with heads of arrows, those two mighty and courageous archers fell to the earth, they who were the lords of the earth, shaking violently like a pair of flag staffs in honour of Indra the Lord Celestials and freed from their raised of chords.
vrm.6.45 Rama fell first, his vital parts pierced by arrows of the wrathful Indrajit, who had formerly vanquished Indra
vrm.6.46 Then, along with Sugreeva, Vibhishana came to that place, after Indrajit finished his work and retired even as Indra would, after raining.
vrm.6.48 Rama" and Lakshmana surely knew the use of the arrows of Varuna, Agni, Indra and Vayu, as also the Brahmashira weapon.
vrm.6.48 "By means of magic arts, an invisible foe has slain Rama and Lakshmana, my protectors, who are equal to Indra in battle and I am now bereft of any support.
vrm.6.48 "Even Suras and Asuras along with Indra cannot vanquish there two heroes in battle.
vrm.6.49 "This Lakshmana, who was accustomed to a rich couch and who by his arrows severe the weapons the mighty Indra is lying slain on the ground.
vrm.6.50 "As for me, I shall slay Ravana with his son and his relatives and bring back Seetha as did Indra the prosperity he had lost.
vrm.6.50 Lifting them up both who were like Indra, the highly majestic Garuda the eagle embraced them.
vrm.6.53 Angada, with his prowess resembling that of Indra brought about a terrific destroyer of the enemies.
vrm.6.54 Stretching his terrific bow, like unto Indra s thunder bolt, he assailed the Vanara battalions with a flood of arrows.
vrm.6.56 Thereafter, as formerly in an encounter Indra hurled his thunderbolt at Namuchi, Hanuman rushed towards Akampana.
vrm.6.58 Vanquishers of other heroes and intrepid combatants, both of them, thirsting for fame, resembled Vritra and Indra.
vrm.6.59 Hearing that Prahasta had perished in the fight, Ravana was afflicted with anger and his heart filled with grief and he addressed the foremost of his leaders as Indra to the leaders of the Deva troops as follows: That enemy is not to be despised under whose blows the destroyer of Indra s host the leader of my army with his followers and
vrm.6.59 standard, banner and canopy, armed with javelins, swords, stakes and other weapons and missiles and composed of imperturbable soldiers and Elephants as high as the Mahendra Mountain? Hearing the words of Rama, Vibhishana the equal of Indra in valour, then narrated to Rama about the choicest army of the foremost among Rakshasas of the highest peculiarity as follows:
vrm.6.59 He who, standing in his chariot, brandish his bow which has a splendour of Indra s bow, whose standard bears the image of a Lion, and who shines like unto an Elephant with its terrible curved tusks, he is Indrajit who is renowned for the boons he had received from Brahma.
vrm.6.59 Ravana, decked with a diadem, who has brought Indra and Vaivasvata, is shining like the sun.
vrm.6.59 The enraged Ravana, taking that arrow with the speed of a thunder bolt of Indra and possessing the brilliance of a fire, hurled it to kill Sugreeva.
vrm.6.59 That arrow released by Ravana s arm reached Sugreeva, having a bodily splendour equal to that of Indra s thunder bolt, and pierced his body in its flight as formerly Guha s spear when he discharged it at the Krauncha
vrm.6.59 But, coming to his consciousness with difficulty, he shattered that weapon belonging to Ravana, Indra s enemy.
vrm.6.59 O, Tiger among the Rakshasas! Stay, stay! Having evoked such a displeasure to me, where will you flee and get an abandonment? Even if you seek refuge in the region of Indra or Yama or the Sun or Brahma or Agni or Shiva or in the ten regions, even in those abodes you will elude me from now on.
vrm.6.59 Thereupon, with a great force, Rama struck with his shaft shining brightly as the thunderbolt, that Ravana, the enemy of Indra, in his broad and beautiful chest, even as the mighty Indra would strike the Mount Meru with his thunderbolt.
vrm.6.59 That Ravana, the adversary of Indra being vanquished, the Devas, Asuras the multitude Bhutas in all the quarters, the creatures of the ocean with the great Uragas as also all beings on earth and in waters rejoiced very much.
vrm.6.60 "What is the use of him, who possessing a strength equal to that of Indra cannot help me in such a dreadful catastrophe?"
vrm.6.60 Then, the hungry Kumbhakarna, the enemy of Indra, ate the meat and being thirsty drank the blood and gulped pitchers full of fat and wine.
vrm.6.60 The royal high way was illumined by his body, like unto that orb of a thousand rays the sun by its flashes illumines the earth and he went there, surrounded by a circle of Rakshasas paying obeisance, resembling Indra approaching the abode of Brahma the Lord of Creation.
vrm.6.61 He conquered Yama and Indra in battle.
vrm.6.61 "While the living being were being eaten, the frightened people sought refuge with Indra and even reported the matter about him.
vrm.6.61 The great souled Kumbhakarna struck by Indra s thunderbolt was quite agitatated at it and roared loudly with anger.
vrm.6.61 "Enraged as he was on Mahendra, the mighty Kumbhakarna then pulled out a tusk of Airavata, Indra s Elephant and struck it into Indra s chest.
vrm.6.61 Even Indra with his people went to the abode of Brahma.
vrm.6.61 "On hearing the words of Indra, Brahma, the great grandfather of the entire world, called for the Rakshasas and saw Kumbhakarna too along with them.
vrm.6.62 Entering Ravana s palace, like the sun entering a mass of clouds, Kumbhakarna then saw from of distance his brother seated on a throne, as Indra saw Brahma perched on his seat.
vrm.6.63 I can engage in combat with all those persons, whether he is Indra or Yama or the Agni to the wind god or even Varuna.
vrm.6.63 Indra" also gets frightened of me, having a mountain sized body wielding a sharpened pike, having pointed tusks and even as I roar.
vrm.6.63 "Without using a javelin or a mace or a sword or sharp arrows, I myself, on getting excited, can kill even Indra, with my bare hands.
vrm.6.63 O king! If you have a fear for Indra or even for Brahma, I shall remove it then, as the sun removes darkness of the night.
vrm.6.63 "I shall kill Indra.
vrm.6.64 "Having lost his advantage, who would feel inclined to reduce to submission, an enemy, who is rich in advantage and determined to lay down his life, as an ordinary person?" "O Kumbhakarna, the foremost among the Rakshasas! How do you wish to combat with Rama, with whom none in the human beings is equal and who is equal of Indra and the sun?" Having thus spoken to the enraged Kumbhakarna, Mahodara on his part spoke as follows, in the midst of Rakshasas, to Ravana, who made the people cry.
vrm.6.65 Taking hold of that large spike tinted with the blood of enemies, shining like Indra s thunderbolt and equally heavy, capable of tormenting Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, Yakshas and Nagas, wreathed in garlands of crimson flowers with excessive splendour and emitting flames by itself naturally, Kumbhakarna of great brilliance spoke to Ravana the following words: "Let this large army stay back here.
vrm.6.66 Seeing that Rakshasas of terrific eyes who could not be destroyed either by Indra or by Yama the lord of death or by Varuna, the Vanaras ran away.
vrm.6.67 Then, in battle, the enraged Kumbhakarna, the enemy of Indra, beating Sharabha with his fist and Neela with his knee, struck Gavaksha with a palm of his hand and struck Gandhamadana violently with his feet.
vrm.6.67 Wielding a spike in his hand in the battle front, the mighty Kumbhakarna shone like Indra wielding a thunderbolt in his hand and like Yama wielding a noose in his hand.
vrm.6.67 Seeing the Vanaras defeated in that great battle, Angada the son of Indra, ran rapidly towards Kumbhakarna.
vrm.6.67 Struck on the head with that mountain, that Kumbhakarna, Indra s adversary, with a great rage, was excited and then ran rapidly towards the wrathful Angada.
vrm.6.67 He struck Kumbhakarna s chest by that mountain, which was as strong enough as Indra s thunderbolt.
vrm.6.67 While taking away that Sugreeva looking like Indra, Kumbhakarna the adversary of Indra and having the prowess of Indra, thought, "If he is killed, all this army including Rama gets destroyed.
vrm.6.67 After the departure of Sugreeva, Kumbhakarna the adversary of Indra, with a rage, marched ahead quickly for the battle.
vrm.6.67 What to tell about a person who bestows battle on me?" "Even the powerful Indra, who mounted Airavata the Elephant and accompanied by all Devas, did not ever stand before me in battle.
vrm.6.67 To that Rakshasa in battle, who has given his opinion thus, abounding in enology, Lakshmana as though bursting with laughter, spoke the following extremely terrific words: "O brave Rakshasa! You are telling that while you show your prowess, the heroes like Indra and others feel unbearable it is true.
vrm.6.67 By his arrow, which was made variegated by gold and furnished with a mystic spell of Indra used for charming it, Rama chopped off Kumbhakarna s remaining arm, appearing like the coil of a serpent along with his uprooted palm tree.
vrm.6.67 Thereupon, that Rama got hold of an arrow spelled with a missile presided over by Indra effulgent as sun s rays, resembling the rod of Brahma the lord of creation as also the destructive Kala, the Time Spirit, and having its speed equal to the wind.
vrm.6.67 Rama discharged against the Rakshasa, that arrow, whose shaft was inlaid with diamonds and gold, which was shining as the dazzling sun and fire set ablaze, and which vied with the speed of Indra s thunderbolt.
vrm.6.67 That arrow, propelled by Rama s arm, with a terrific aspect like the smokeless fire, having a formidable energy of Indra s thunderbolt and illuminating the ten quarters with its own splendour, proceeded forward.
vrm.6.67 That Rama slashed Kumbhakarna s head, which was looking like a huge mountain peak, having well rounded tusks and with charming and quivering ear rings, as like Indra the destroyer of strong holds, in the past, chopped off the head of Vritra, the Asura of darkness and drought.
vrm.6.67 By killing Kumbhakarna, who tormented the army of Devas and who was not defeated at any time in great battles, Rama was rejoiced in the same way as Indra was rejoiced in killing Vritra, the great Asura.
vrm.6.68 O Kumbhakarna! Now that you are dead, how can I conquer Indra?" "Those words of that great souled Vibhishana, which I did not accept due to ignorance, have come true.
vrm.6.68 Having thus lamented very much piteously in various ways on coming to know that Kumbhakarna, his younger brother and the enemy of Indra having been killed, Ravana the ten headed Rakshasa, whose inner feelings were agitated, even sank down, extremely disturbed.
vrm.6.69 “Beaten down by me, as Shambara by Indra and Naraka by Vishnu, I will lay down Rama today in battle.
vrm.6.69 Then, the brave Ravanas’ sons, whose prowess was equal to Indra and the foremost of Rakshasas, roared asserting their superiority saying “I will lead, I will lead!”
vrm.6.69 That Ravana the king, surrounded by his sons, who were radiant as the sun and who tormented the strength and fortune of the enemies, shone like Indra surrounded by Devas who can destroy the pride of gigantic Danavas.
vrm.6.69 In that chariot, Atikaya that mighty prince, surrounded by the foremost of Rakshasas, shone like Indra surrounded by Devas.
vrm.6.69 That valiant and mighty Narantaka, the enemy of Indra, single handedly within an instant, rent asunder seven hundred Vanaras with that shining javelin and killed that army of the foremost of Vanaras.
vrm.6.70 The valiant Angada hurled that large tree with big branches quickly on Devantaka as Indra would a blazing thunderbolt.
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.6.70 Those mountain like heads of Trishira the enemy of Indra, having longish organs of senses and having fire like blazing eyes, fell down on earth, as planets and stars drop from the track of the sun.
vrm.6.70 When that Trishira, the enemy of Devas, having a prowess equal to that of Indra was killed, the Vanaras made a loud noise.
vrm.6.71 Seeing his own army making a tumultuous sound tottering with excessive fear, seeing his brothers having a prowess equal to that of Indra having been killed, and seeing his paternal uncles as also Yuddhonmatta and Matta Mahodara and Mahaparshva his brothers and the foremost of Rakshasas having been fallen down, Atikaya of great splendour, having boons bestowed by Brahma the lord of creation, having appearance of a mountain and who removed the pride of Devas and Danavas, was enraged.
vrm.6.71 That Atikaya, the enemy of Indra, mounting a chariot shining like a cluster of thousand suns, ran towards the Vanaras.
vrm.6.71 “He is Atikaya, who paralyzed the thunderbolt of the intelligent Indra with his arrows.
vrm.6.71 Then, the valiant Lakshmana chopped off that missile, by his missile presided over by Indra
vrm.6.71 Then, hearing the words of the wind god, Lakshmana having a prowess equal to that of Indra adjusting his arrow with a missile presided over by Brahma, quickly directed the arrow with a terrific force.
vrm.6.73 “Now itself, Indra, Vaivasvata yama, Vishnu, Rudra, Sadhyas, Vaishvanara fire god, Surya and Chandra sun and moon can see my unlimited prowess, like the terrific prowess of Vishnu during the sacrifice of Bali.
vrm.6.73 Indra was conquered by you.
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 They could not see there, that Indrajit the Rakshasa, the enemy of Indra, remaining concealed by his conjuring trick.
vrm.6.74 He saw the abode of Brahma the lord of creation, Kailasa the abode of Shiva the lord of dissolution, the abode of Indra the arrow discharging place of Rudra, the worshipping place of Hayagriva, the shining place at which Brahmas’ head fell down, the sun god and Kimkaras.
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.6.75 Getting scorched in fire, beautiful women, while lying fast asleep in their seven storeyed mansions, gave up all connection with their ornaments and screamed loudly, saying “ah! Alas!” The houses too, surrounded by fire there, fell down like peaks of a great mountain, struck by the thunder bolt of Indra.
vrm.6.76 That excellent bow of his, fitted with an arrow, shone like a second bow of Indra the rain god, illumined by flashes of lightning and the splendour of Airavata
vrm.6.76 “O Kumbha, the compeer of Prahlada, Bali, Indra the destroyer of Vritra, Kubera and Varuna! You alone are born with a likeness of your father Kumbhakarna who was exceedingly strong.
vrm.6.76 “Let the created beings see your great wonderful fight with me in the battle field today, as they saw that fight between Indra and Shambara, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.77 Wielding that weapon, which in size resembled the flag staff of Indra, Nikumbha of terrific prowess, roared with his mouth yawing wide.
vrm.6.80 "You have conquered Indra, of incomparable deeds, in battle.
vrm.6.82 Hearing that terrific roar, similar to the sound of Indra s thunderbolt, the Vanaras looking hither and thither, ran away in all directions.
vrm.6.83 “O tormentator of your enemies! Had either righteousness or unrighteousness worth pursuing, Indra the wielder of thunderbolt would not have performed a sacrifice on killing a sage viz.
vrm.6.84 On returning after pouring oblations into the sacred fire, Indrajit will prove difficult to be overcome in battle, even by Devas including Indra.
vrm.6.84 “O the long armed one! Therefore, dispatch Lakshmana having auspicious body marks even as Indra employed the thunderbolt to kill Indrajit.
vrm.6.84 Therefore, grant permission to Lakshmana to destroy the enemy, as Indra would hurl his thunderbolt to destroy the enemies of Devas.
vrm.6.86 "You as such, rush forward quickly, gushing out arrows, equal to Indra s thunderbolt, on the enemies, so long as this sacrificial act of Indrajit is not actually carried through.
vrm.6.86 "Having seated in a chariot, Indrajit, who conquered Indra, is seeking to kill Hanuma.
vrm.6.88 Those two heroes, who were difficult to overcome in battle, fought at that moment like two plants figuring in the sky and like Indra and Vritra.
vrm.6.89 Thereupon, with alacrity of his hand, that illustrious Lakshmana, fully stretching and releasing another sharp thunderbolt like arrow, named Bhalla, which was yellowish in colour, with charming plumes, having a good splendour similar to Indra s thunderbolt and echoing a clapping sound, severed the head of Indrajit s charioteer from his trunk, even as he was circling around.
vrm.6.89 Then, that Lakshmana like Indra restrained those arrows with many a number of his arrows.
vrm.6.90 Employing utmost agility, Indrajit, aiming at Lakshmana, streamed forth a shower of arrows, as Indra streaming forth the rain.
vrm.6.90 That arrow had been presented to him, in the course of a dream, by Kubera, of immense glory himself, which was difficult to be conquered and much more difficult to be tolerated even for Suras and Asuras including Indra.
vrm.6.90 Placing Indra as their head, the Sages, Pitris, Devas, Gandharvas, Garudas and Uragas protected Lakshmana in the battle field.
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.6.90 Fitting a missile presided over by Indra which had never been defeated in battle, to his excellent bow and drawing it, the glorious Lakshmana addressed the following prayer, which was intended to achieve his purpose: “O my dear arrow! If Rama the son of Dasaratha has set his mind on virtue, keeps up his promise and is second to none in his prowess, destroy this Indrajit.
vrm.6.90 While that Rakshasa of sinful deeds is having been killed, the illustrious Indra the ruler of Gods along with all the great sages were rejoiced.
vrm.6.91 Having offered his salutation and approached Rama, Lakshmana stood beside his brother, even as Indra s brother Vishnu would stand beside Indra
vrm.6.92 "Your valiant son, who was unbeatable in combats and that hero who conquered Indra having collided with valiant Lakshmana, has been killed.
vrm.6.92 "Alas! My child, the chief of the army of Rakshasas, having extraordinary might! Having conquered Indra, how have you been subjected to the power of Lakshmana now?" "Certainly, when enraged, you would pierce with your arrows in battle, even the all destroying time in the form of Yama the Lord of Death and even the peaks of Mount Mandara.
vrm.6.92 "Who will, be it Indra himself, dare to attack me on the battle field now, when mounted on chariot on this field of battle, and duly wearing the aforesaid armour?" "Let that large bow of mine, which was given at that time to me along with arrows by the gracious Brahma the lord of creation, on the occasion of my combat between Devas and Asuras, be taken out today to the accompaniment of a band of musical instruments, for the purpose of killing Rama and Lakshmana in the great battle.
vrm.6.93 Rama, a compeer of Indra the great souled, unwearied in the use of weapons and missiles, having destroyed that army of Rakshasas, was applauded by the rejoiced troops of Devas.
vrm.6.94 Rama" killed the mighty Vali, the son of Indra looking like the black cloud.
vrm.6.94 Rama", coming in the form of either Rudra the lord of destruction or Vishnu, the lord of preservation, or Indra who performed one hundred ritual sacrifices, or otherwise Yama, the Lord of Death himself, is killing us.
vrm.6.94 "All the Devas together with Indra and others, got propitiated by Shiva the lord of destruction, with the ensign of a bull on his flag staff and who destroyed the three strong cities built of gold, silver and iron in the sky, air and earth for Rakshasas.
vrm.6.98 That highly profound lion s roar of the rejoiced Vanaras, by its noise, was well like the loud sound of the Gods along with Indra the lord Celestials, nay, by its vibrations breaking asunder as it were the City of Lanka with its attics and town gates.
vrm.6.98 Hearing the loud noise of Vanaras, as also of the Devas in the battle field, the enraged Ravana the adversary of Indra, then stood prepared for a battle again.
vrm.6.99 Having driven away the army of Vanaras, Ravana the foremost among the Rakshasas then saw Rama, the annihilator of his enemies, who was endowed with long arms and eyes as wide as lotus petals standing unconquered with his brother Lakshmana like Indra is seen with Vishnu, the supreme lord of preservation holding up his great bow as though scraping the sky.
vrm.6.99 That battle was unimaginable and unapproachable, like the duel that took place between Vritra and Indra
vrm.6.100 That spear, with a sound equal to Indra s thunder bolt, hurled by the terribly swift Ravana, soon fell with speed on Lakshmana in the battle front.
vrm.6.102 Hearing their nectar like words, the illustrious Indra, then called Matali and spoke as follows: "Go quickly with my chariot to Rama, who is standing on the earth.
vrm.6.102 Hearing the words of Indra, Matali, the charioteer of Indra, offering salutation to him by bowing his head, spoke then the following words:
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 Ascending the chariot, as enjoined by Indra and descending from paradise, Matali approached Rama.
vrm.6.102 Then Matali, the charioteer of Indra, along with a whip in his hand, stayed in the chariot itself and joining his palms in salutation, spoke the following words to Rama.
vrm.6.102 Indra" has sent this chariot to you for your victory, O the mighty and the glorious Rama, the destroyer of adversaries!" "Here is the great bow belonging to Indra, an armour shining as fire, some arrows as bright as sun and a stainless auspicious spear.
vrm.6.102 "O heroic king! Mounting this chariot with me as a charioteer, kill Ravana the king, as earlier Indra killed the Danavas.
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 The Planet Mars stood assailing in the sky, the constellation Vishakha, presided over by Indra and Agni, which is adorned by the kings of Kosala.
vrm.6.102 With streams of arrows, Rama warded off that spear, which was rushing upon him, as with streams of water, Indra warded off the fire shooting up at the time of dissolution of the world.
vrm.6.102 That Rama, the delight of Raghus, was quite enraged and took hold of that spear brought by Matali the charioteer, as desired by Indra
vrm.6.105 "He is Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Skanda, Prajapati, Indra, Kubera the bestower of riches, Kala, Yama, Soma the moon god and Varuna, the lord of waters.
vrm.6.106 “You need not be instructed by me, accustomed as you are to drive the chariot of Indra
vrm.6.107 Without even reaching the ensign on Indra s chariot and touching off the staff which supported the banner of the chariot, the arrows fell on the ground.
vrm.6.107 Directing towards Matali, Indra s charioteer, Ravana hurled arrows with a sound similar to that of a thunder bolt.
vrm.6.107 Not beholding the victory of Rama in the combat between Rama and Ravana that great souled Matali, the charioteer of Indra quickly spoke the following words to Rama, who was still engaged in fighting.
vrm.6.108 Having been made formerly for Indra, by Brahma, the lord of creation of infinite strength, it was bestowed in the past on the ruler of Gods, who was desirous of conquering the three worlds.
vrm.6.108 That arrow, which was inviolable as a thunderbolt hurled by the arms of Indra and irresistible as Yama the lord of Death, fell upon Ravana s chest.
vrm.6.108 That Rama, the delight of Dasaratha, for his part, who had just killed his enemy and thus who was steadfast in his vows and who was endowed with a great splendour, who stood surrounded on the battle field by his own people and the army shone like Indra
vrm.6.109 "The Rakshasa, who had never been conquered before in battles, by even all the Gods combined or by Indra himself, has been conquered, on confronting you in the battle field, as the sea breaks up, on reaching the shore.
vrm.6.110 "That Ravana, by whom Indra was thrown into fear, Yama was struck with terror, by whom Kubera the king was deprived of Pushpaka the Vimana aerial car, and by whom fear was caused on the battle field in the Gandharva in the sages and the great souled Devas, lies killed in the battle field.
vrm.6.111 Gazing at Ravana, her husband who was killed by Rama of unimaginable exploits, Mandodari there, miserably lamented as follows: "O the great armed, the brother of Kubera! Even Indra the destroyer of strongholds, indeed dares not to stand before you, when you were enraged.
vrm.6.111 "O the mighty lord! Otherwise, you might have been overpowered by Indra.
vrm.6.111 But for Indra, where is the capacity even to behold you in battle? "This Rama is certainly a great ascetic, an eternal person, having no beginning middle or end, greater than distinguished universal spirit like Brahma, the one beyond ignorance, the nourisher, wielding a conch, a disc and a mace, wearing the Srivatsa mark on his chest, of lasting beauty, incapable of being conquered, a perpetual one, being the constant soul of the universe, truly mighty, the lord of all the worlds, the prosperous one having a great splendour and Vishnu, with a wish to benefit the worlds, assuming a human form surrounded by all the Gods in the form of Vanaras, Rama killed you, surrounded by Rakshasas.
vrm.6.111 "It is because, the Gods together with Indra the ruler of Gods including those headed by the Agni fear you, that you were not consumed even while you were laying hands on Seetha, the slender waisted woman.
vrm.6.111 "I was very much proud that my father was king of Rakshasas, my husband a lord of Rakshasas and my son, a conqueror of Indra
vrm.6.111 "Torn into thousand pieces, that iron bludgeon of yours, which was brilliant as the sun, like a thunderbolt of Indra, with which you killed your enemies in the battle field, which was constantly honoured by you, which had struck many in battle and which was decked with gold, lies scattered.
vrm.6.111 "It is heard that Ravana who was mighty, endowed with strength and who was causing people to cry, was not conquered by the chiefs like Indra and others.
vrm.6.111 Having destroyed the enemy, Rama too experienced happiness, along with his army as well as with Sugreeva and Lakshmana, even as Indra the wielder of thunderbolt did on destroying Vritra.
vrm.6.111 Thereupon, taking off his bow and arrows as also that great armour endowed to him by Indra, Rama the annihilator of his enemies, taking off his anger too, because of the enemy s defeat, then obtained a charming benevolence.
vrm.6.112 Taking leave of the divine chariot, which had been given by Indra and which shone like fire, the mighty armed Rama respectfully saluted Matali.
vrm.6.112 As assented by Rama, Matali Indra s charioteer, mounting that divine chariot, ascended to the heaven itself.
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 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.6.117 Thereupon, Vaisravana, the King of Yakshas, Yama together with the Pitris, Indra the lord of Devas, Varuna the lord of waters, the illustrious Shiva having three eyes, Brahma the creator of all the worlds and the best among the knowers of sacred knowledge all these together reaching the City of Lanka in aerial cars, shining like the sun approached Rama.
vrm.6.117 You are the origin and the dissolution of all, Upendra the younger brother of Indra as also the destroyer Madhu.
vrm.6.117 "You perform action for Indra, the Supreme Ruler, the one having a lotus in one s navel and who puts an end to all in battle.
vrm.6.117 "In the past, the three worlds were occupied by you in your three strides, after binding the exceptionally formidable Bali and Indra was made the king by you.
vrm.6.119 "This king Dasaratha, your father in this mortal world and the highly glorious as well as the venerable person, is seated in an aerial car, O Rama!" "Having been delivered by you, his godly son, the glorious king obtained the abode of Indra
vrm.6.119 "These three worlds, including Indra Siddhas and great sages pay homage to the great souled Rama as a Supreme person, on approaching him.
vrm.6.119 Having instructed thus to his sons and Seetha, the King Dasaratha who was born in Raghu dynasty went to the abode of Indra, by an aerial car.
vrm.6.119 With a satisfied self, Dasaratha the excellent king of noble mindedness endowed with splendour, taking leave of his sons and Seetha and mounting the aerial car, went to the abode of Indra, the chief of Gods.
vrm.6.120 When Dasaratha returned, the Lord Indra, the destroyer of Paka, was very much pleased and spoke to Rama, who stood there with his oined palms.
vrm.6.120 Hearing the words of the great souled Indra after having been pleased, Rama with the most placid mind spoke the following words with rejoice: "O the foremst among the eloquent! O Indra! If you have affection in me, I shall speak out my words.
vrm.6.120 O Indra! Restore their lives to them.
vrm.6.120 Hearing the words of that great souled Rama, Indra endowed as he was with delight, again spoke the following words: "O beloved Rama! This boon, which has been sought by you is hard to grant.
vrm.6.120 Thus speaking to Rama and Lakshmana, Indra the thousand eyed god of Devas, having beenpleased, returned to heaven with other Gods in their aerial cars, shining liek the sun.
vrm.6.122 Even the Devas including Indra shall not be able to attack you.
vrm.6.123 And over there is seen the great hermitage of Sharabhanga, where the thousand eyed Indra, the destroyer of Citadels, came.
vrm.6.123 And over there is seen the great hermitage of Sharabhanga, where the thousand eed Indra, the destroyer of Citadels, came.
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 “Tell him about the bestower of boons by Indra by brahma the lord of creation, and by Varuna, my meeting with my deceased father, through the grace of Shiva the Supreme Deity.
vrm.6.125 Lakshmana" too, who is endowed with extraordinary energy, is coming intact with Seetha, the illustrious princess of Videha territory and with Rama as Sachi the wife of Indra would with the mighty Indra
vrm.6.126 "The illustrious Rama, the destroyer of enemies, happened to meet Indra, Yama, Varuna, Maheshvara, Brahma the self born as also Dasaratha and was bestowed boons by them.
vrm.6.127 “A formidable roar of rejoiced Vanaras is being heard, for, they are seeing on the way, trees which continually, yield fruit, adorned with blossom, flowing with honey which is drunk by bees, making reverberant humming sounds all due to the grace of Sage Bharadwaja O Bharata, the destroyer of adversaries! A boon was conferred by Indra, by virtue of which a hospitality rich with all excellences was earlier extended by Bharadwaja to you, with your entire army.
vrm.6.127 Rama, with his long and large eyes, seated in the aerial car, created by Viswakarma the divine architect with his intelligence, shone like another Indra who carries the thunderbolt in his hand.
vrm.6.127 Affectionately pressing the feet of Vasishta, his well wisher and family priest, even as Indra would press the feet of Brihaspati, the valiant Rama sat by his side, on a separate seat.
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 The faultless Rama, mounting the excellent chariot, as Indra ascended the chariot yoked to green coloured Horses, sallied forth to the city.
vrm.6.128 Encouraged by Indra, Vayu presented to Rama, a golden garland consisting of a hundred lotuses and which looked shining brilliantly.
vrm.6.128 Induced by Indra, the wind god presented to Rama the king, a chain of pearls, adorned with gems and endowed with several types of precious stones.
vrm.7.3 And then the highly energetic Brahma along with Indra and the Devas,coming to that asylum.
vrm.7.3 Thereat, Brahma along with the deities gladly said in a gratified spirit, Very well I am about to create the fourth of the Protectors of creatures Yama, Indra and Varuna, the position which is sought for by thee.
vrm.7.3 On its brow is a beautiful and broad city built by Viswakarma, named Lanka, resembling the city itself of Indra the great, designed for the abode of Rakshasas, like unto the Amaravati of Indra.
vrm.7.5 Once the king of the Devas, Indra, through the great Architect Viswakarma got the most magnificent and the most impregnable Lanka and as splendid as Amaravati of Indra, built on mount Suveladri, surrounded by mountain Trikuta, on the coast of the southern ocean.
vrm.7.5 The sons of Sukesa once captured Viswakarma and asked him: "Do thou construct for as a magnificiant city and palace like the city of Indra.
vrm.7.5 And those three foremost of Rakshasas, accompanied by hundreds of sons night rangers all elated on account of their measureless prowess, began to worry the sages and Nagas and Yakshas, and Devas with Indra at their head.
vrm.7.6 Then Narayana spoke unto the Devas with Indra at their head, I will slay those foes of the Devas.
vrm.7.7 And he with his mace smote at the forehead of that lord of birds, even as the Destroyer had smitten Isana, or as Indra smiteth a mountain with his thunder bolt.
vrm.7.7 And hearing the cheers of the Rakshas, Indra s younger brother, the reverend Hari, sitting awry on that lord of birds, albeit moved of from the scene of conflict, waxing enraged, from a desire of slaying Mali hurled his disc at him.
vrm.7.16 And then the Devas with Indra at their head shook on their way; and the sea was wild and the mountains shook.
vrm.7.18 And Indra became a peacock and the king of righteousness, a crow, and the bestower of riches a lizard, and Varuna a swan ;and, O slayer of foes, others also became other beasts.
vrm.7.18 On Ravana having departed, the Devas, inhabiting the etherial regions Indra etc.
vrm.7.18 And from joy Indra spoke unto the purple plumed peacock, Pleased am I with thee thou righteous one.
vrm.7.18 Thus did Indra chief of Devas, confer a boon on the peacock.
vrm.7.20 And the exceedingly energetic Narada best of Brahmans resembling a smokeless fire, remaining rapt for a while, began to reflect; How can Ravana conquer Time who, when its life waneth, righteously visiteth with affliction the time, sphere with Indra, fraught with mobile and immobile.
vrm.7.22 And stretching his bow resembling in spleandour the thunderbolt of Indra, he discharged arrows coveing up the sky.
vrm.7.24 Vritra, Danu, Suka, Sambhu, Nishumbha, Sumbha, Kalanemi, Prahlada and others, Kula, Vairochana, Mridu, Jamala, Arjuna, Kansa, Kaitabha, and Madhu used to impart heat like the sun, appear resplendant like the rays, move about like air and pour showers like Indra.
vrm.7.26 Having destroyed many in battle, he hath at last been slain by his enemies and is perhaps now going either to the region of Indra or to some such place.
vrm.7.27 Thou art a beggar, wearest the semblance of a beggar and art by nature crooked ;thou didst assail Indra s hands and the Vasus.
vrm.7.30 Whereto the Dasagriva replied "You have not done well as you have worshipped, with diverse articles my enemies Indra and others.
vrm.7.31 Having got up and been influenced by lust he took her, shameful as she was, by the hand and smiling said: "Where art thou going, O beautiful damsel ?Whom art thou going of thy own accord to satisfy ?Whose prosperous time hath appeared, with whom thou shalt enjoy ?Who shall be satisfied with dinking the nectar of thy mouth smelling like lotus ?Whose breast, O fare damsel, thy rising breast beautiful like two golden pots closely placed, shall touch ?Who is there so beautiful as I Indra, Vishnu, or two Aswins that thou art passing by me ?Do thou take rest upon this excellent rock, O thou having charming waist.
vrm.7.32 Having crossed the mount Kailasa, the highly powerful Dasagriva, with his army, reached the region of Indra.
vrm.7.32 Hearing of the arrival of Ravana, Indra shook on his throne and said to the assembled gods, Adityas, Vasus, Rudras, Sadhyas and Maruts Prepare yourselves, for fighting with the vicious souled Ravana.
vrm.7.32 Having fallen on his head that mace shone like a fire brand as the thunder bolt, discharged by Indra, falls roaring on the summit of a mountain.
vrm.7.33 Thereupon beholding the Devas terrified and pierced with shafts, Indra, the king of gods, said Be not afraid, O ye Devas ;do not ly away ;come back to the battle ;this my son, who has never been vanquished, goes to battle.
vrm.7.33 Ravana s son thus striking Indra s army the quarters were enshrouded with darkness by his illusory power.
vrm.7.33 And taking up various weapons, Indra, the king of divinities, set out for the field of action, in the company of Rudras, Vasus, Adityas, the two Aswini and Maruts.
vrm.7.33 Having unstrung his huge bow Indra struck Ravana, on his head, with arrows resembling the flame of fire and the rays of the sun.
vrm.7.33 And the Rakshasa chief Dasanana, having long arms, also assailed Indra with hundreds of shafts discharged of his bow.
vrm.7.34 And in that darkness Indra, Ravana and Meghanada these three were not possessed by the influence of illusion.
vrm.7.34 I shall slay Indra, Kubera, Varuna and Yama what to speak of more I shall soon destroy all the Devas and place myself above them.
vrm.7.34 Having left behind all other Devas he pursued Indra and the highly effulgent Mahendra too espied his enemy s son.
vrm.7.34 Thereat having left his car and charioteer Indra mounted his elephant Airavata and ran about in search of Ravana s son.
vrm.7.34 Being invisible in the welkin by virtue of his illusory powers and having brought Indra under the influence thereof he struck him with hundreds of arrows.
vrm.7.34 When Ravana s son came to know that Indra was exhausted he, having bound him up by virtue of illusion, proceeded towards his army.
vrm.7.34 And having seen Mahendra carried away by force from the battle field the Devas thought What is this?" That conqueror of Sakra and subduer of enemies, conversant with illusory powers, was not visible, by whom, Indra, although master of many illusions, was carried away by force.
vrm.7.34 Do thou set out hence for the city, taking Indra on thy chariot and surrounded by soldiers.
vrm.7.35 O Ravana, this thy son is highly powerful and gifted with great strength and he shall be celebrated in the world under the appellation of Indrajit or the conqueror of Indra.
vrm.7.35 Thereupon Meghanada released Indra and the Devas returned to their own abode.
vrm.7.35 In the interval, O Rama, Indra became poorly, divested of his immortal brilliance, stricken with anxiety and pensive.
vrm.7.35 Thereupon she propitiated the ascetic Gautama saying, "O twice born one, I was unwittingly ravished by Indra, assuming thy form.
vrm.7.35 I have thus described to thee the strength of Indrajit what to speak of others he vanquished even Indra the king of the Devas.
vrm.7.35 And Agastya said Rama", Ravana, the thorn of people, then grew in power, by whom, in the company of his son, Indra, the lord of the Devas, was defeated.
vrm.7.37 And within a shot time being struck down by that club gifted with great velocity Prahasta fell down on earth like unto the summit of a mountain clapped down by the thunder bolt of Indra.
vrm.7.37 carrying him bound like unto Indra carrying Bali bound.
vrm.7.38 Like unto Brahma enteing Indra s Amaravati, he entered the city resembling the capital of Indra and filled with delighted and plump citizens.
vrm.7.38 And beholding the ascetic resembling the rising sun arrived, the king Arjuna bowed unto him reverentially like Indra saluting Mahadeva.
vrm.7.39 And having recited his prayers there also, Vali, the son of Indra, and the king of Vanaras, carrying Ravana, returned to the city of Kishkindha.
vrm.7.40 And repairing to the house of Indra, Sinhika s son, in wrath and with frowns, said to him encircled by the Devas "O Vasava !O slayer of Bala and Vritra to remove my hunger thou didst give me both the sun and moon; why thou hast then given them to another ?On account of the Parva I came to devour the sun but another Rahu came and possessed him.
vrm.7.40 Having left behind Indra, Rahu quickly went there but led away on beholding the huge bodied Hanuman resembling a mountain summit.
vrm.7.40 And considering Indra as the saviour he again and again cried aloud Indra"! Indra!!" Understanding everything by the piteous accents of Rahu Indra said, "No fear, I shall soon slay him.
vrm.7.40 Proceeding thus tempestuously when he rose above the head of Indra, Hanuman, looked in a moment dreadful like the fire of dissolution.
vrm.7.40 Belaboured by the thunder bolt of Indra Hanuman fell down and broke his left jaw.
vrm.7.40 He being thus overwhelmed by the stroke of Indra s thunder bolt, the Vayu became displeased with the king of Devas and was determined upon bringing about mischief unto all created beings.
vrm.7.40 Hearing the words of Rahu, Indra, the king of the Devas, hath belaboured the Vayu s son.
vrm.7.41 At this time was returning by that way, Indra, the leader of the Devas after having worshipped the feet of Brahma.
vrm.7.42 Thereupon Indra begot on her a son named Vali for he originated from her hairs and Surya begot on her another son, who was named Sugriva for he originated from her neck.
vrm.7.42 Thus the two highly powerful Vanaras being born, Indra went back to his region having conferred upon Vali an un ending garland of gold.
vrm.7.44 He is day, night morning and evening, Yama, the moon, Kala, the wind, Brahma, Rudra, Indra and water.
vrm.7.46 Thou wet born of Aditi, as the youngest brother of Indra for binding Bali.
vrm.7.47 Many kings, Vibhishana, Sugriva, Hanuman and many others adorned the assembly and Rama excelled Indra, the lord of the Devas, in splendour.
vrm.7.48 Thereupon, Rama, at first saluted and went round him and then Yudhajit, the son of Kekaya, went away to his kingdom in the company of Lakshmana like unto Indra leaving for home in the company of Vishnu on the destruction of the Asura Vritra.
vrm.7.51 Indra bath been pouring nectar like showers in due time.
vrm.7.52 And Rama s Asoka forest was like unto Indra s Nandana and Kubera s Chitraratha made by Brahma.
vrm.7.55 Indra, he king of the Devas, himself handed over the chaste Sita unto me in the island of Lanka.
vrm.7.65 Thereupon Vasishta said to Nimi, the foremost of royal saints "I have already been engaged by Indra.
vrm.7.65 And the high souled Vasishta too engaged in Indra ssacrifice.
vrm.7.65 Thereupon having finished the sacrifice of Indra there came to the King, the blameless and the illustrious Rishi Vasishta.
vrm.7.66 Nahusha, powerful as Indra, was the son of Ayu, When Indra, the king of the Devas, was assailed with thunderbolt by the Asura Vritra,Nahusha governed his kingdom for a hundred thousand years.
vrm.7.66 In this wise Urvasi, having beautiful teeth, eyes and brow, remained on earth for many years and then returned to the region of Indra after the period of curse had been over.
vrm.7.70 Hearing the words of Lakshmana the dog said "We cannot enter into the houses of divinities, kings and Brahmanas nor can we go there where is fire, Indra, the sun or the wind, for we are the vilest born ;so I cannot enter there.
vrm.7.70 He is the moon, death, Yama, Kubera, the giver of riches, fire, Indra, the sun and Varuna.
vrm.7.72 The Vulture having said this, the Owl began "True, it is, O king, that in him are the portions of the Moon, Indra, the Sun, Kubera and Yama, but there is in him also a portion of man.
vrm.7.72 O patriarch, in anger, punishment, gift and fear, thou art our giver, destroyer and protector, it is for this that thou art called Indra.
vrm.7.76 And on being installed Kakutstha resembled the Sun ;and he was like Skanda formerly installed by the Devas led by Indra.
vrm.7.80 He having been engaged in making prepaitions to conquer the world of Devas the celestial chief Indra with other immortals was greatly terrified.
vrm.7.80 With this promise, the king Mandhata went up into the celestial region so that he would occupy the half of Indra s throne and kingdom and the Devas would adore him.
vrm.7.80 Being apprised of this vicious intention of his, Indra, the slayer of Paka, consoled him in sweet words, saying "O foremost of men, even in the land of men, thou hast not been able to become the real king.
vrm.7.80 Indra having said this, the high souled Mandhata replied: O Sakra, who on this earth, hath disobeyed my commands ?"Whereto Indra replied "O sinless one, the night ranger, Lavana, Madhu s son, living in Madhuvana, is not under thy control.
vrm.7.80 Hearing those dreadful and unpleasant words from Indra, the king lowered his head in shame and became silent.
vrm.7.80 having welcomed Indra in that way, he.
vrm.7.83 Lavana being slain the Devas headed by Agni and Indra said in sweet accents to Satrughna the represser of enemies "O child, fortunate it is that thou hast been crowned with success after slaying the Rakshasa Lavana.
vrm.7.83 All the fields there were filled with crops and Indra began to pour showers in due season.
vrm.7.85 He espied there Rama in the midst of the councillors like Indra amongst the immortals burning in his own efulgence.
vrm.7.89 And that Sudra being slain, Indra, Agni and other Devas praised him again and again and showered flowers.
vrm.7.89 Thou dost protect Indra and other celestials.
vrm.7.89 Therefore to obtain a king, men approached Brahma, the god of gods and said "O deity thou hast placed Indra as ruler over the Devas ;therefore, O lord of creatures, do thou also confer upon us a king who shall be foremost among men ;by worshipping him we shall be freed from all sins.
vrm.7.89 Thereupon the Patriarch Brahma sent for Indra and other Devas and said "Do ye all give a portion of your respective energies.
vrm.7.89 By virtue of the portion of Indra s energy the king Khshupa brought the earth under his control ;by that of Varuna s energy he fostered his own body :by Kubera s portion he conferred riches upon his subjects ;and by that of Yama he governed them.
vrm.7.89 Therefore, O Rama, by virtue of Indra s portion, do thou accept this ornament and confer upon me the salvation.
vrm.7.91 It is for this reason, O Kakutstha, that royal saint, resembling Indra, conferred upon me this wondrous, celestial ornament.
vrm.7.94 Showering dust Indra shall destroy, earth to the extent of a hundred Yojana, the territory of this vicious king.
vrm.7.97 He being thus engaged is asceticism, Indra, greatly terrified, approached Vishnu and said "O thou having long arms, by virtue of his asceticism Vritra is about to conquer all the worlds.
vrm.7.98 "Hearing the words of Indra and other Devas Vishnu replied From before I am bound with the high souled Vritra by the ties of fiendship.
vrm.7.98 Thereupon the highly poweiful immortals headed by Indra entered the forest where the great Asura Vritra was performing austeities.
vrm.7.98 While they were thus thinking, Indra, of thousand eyes, taking up a thunderbolt hurled it against Vritra s head.
vrm.7.98 Thereupon thinking that he has perpetrated an iniquity by slaying Vritra engaged in asceticism, Indra, out of fear, fled to the other side of Lokaloka, perpetually enshrowded with darkness.
vrm.7.98 In this wise Indra became subject to dreadful afflictions.
vrm.7.98 Beholding the enemy slain and Indra fled, the Devas headed by fire again and again chanted the glories of Vishnu the lord of three worlds, saying "O great god, thou at the refuge of the three worlds.
vrm.7.98 Thou hast slain this Vritra but the sin of slaying a Brahman has visited Indra.
vrm.7.99 Having thus described at length and finished the story of Vritra s destruction Lakshmana said The mighty Vritra, the terror of the Devas, being slain, and the slayer Indra, being assailed by the sin of Brahmanicide, was bewildered and at a loss to ascetain his duty.
vrm.7.99 And again in consequence of Indra s separation, the whole world was agitated, the forests grew dried and the earth was devoid of water.
vrm.7.99 After the sacrifice the sin issued out of Indra s person and addressing the high souled Devas said "Do ye all ascertain, where I shall go now.
vrm.7.99 Thereupon Indra worshipped Vishnu in the shape of that wonderful sacrifice.
vrm.7.99 Hearing the charming words of Lakshmana, the energetic and high souled king, Rama, powerful like Indra, was greatly delighted.
vrm.7.105 The ascetics said: We have never seen before a sacrifice like this, Indra s, Soma s, Yama s or Varuna s.
vrm.7.113 And Rama s army unconquerable even by the Devas went on for a month, from the city like a celestial host under the command of Indra.
vrm.7.119 Lakshmana, the younger brother of Rama, being thus engaged in penances, having obstructed his breath, Apsaras, Indra and other Devas and Rishis showered flowers on him.
vrm.7.123 Thereupon all the Devas Sadhyas Maruts, headed by Indra and Agni worshipped that deity, Vishnu.
