vrm.1.1 "On reaching the city Lanka ruled by Ravana, Hanuma has seen Seetha, where she is lodged in Ashoka gardens and meditating on Rama alone.
vrm.1.1 After an audience with Ravana Hanuma burnt that city Lanka, except where Seetha, the princess of Mithila is stationed, and then to narrate the pleasant news of locating Seetha, he again got back to Rama, for he is a great Vanara.
vrm.1.1 "On going to the city Lanka by that bridge and on eliminating Ravana in battle, Rama redeemed Seetha, but he subsequently came down with much humiliation, since redeeming Seetha in enemy s place might become controversial.
vrm.1.1 "Enthroning Vibhishana as the chieftain of Rakshasas in Lanka, then feeling that his task is fulfilled, Rama indeed rejoiced highly getting rid of febrility about any uncertainty of fulfilling his promises, excepting for Jatayu.
vrm.1.3 Hanuma s killing the Rakshasi Surasa, and his seeing of Simhika, a rapacious creature of gigantic origin, which captures its prey by the shadow, and Hanuma s killing that Simhika, and his seeing the mountain of Lanka, called Mountain Trikuta, on which the state of Lanka is built, Valmiki described them all.
vrm.1.3 In night Hanuma s entry into Lanka, for being lonely his thinking over the course to search for Seetha, and his going to the liquor consumption place, and also his seeing the palace chambers of Ravana.
vrm.1.3 The capture of Hanuma, the son of Vayu, by the magical missile of Indrajit, son of Ravana, and also Hanuma s burning down Lanka, and his blaring at the Rakshasas, also his return flight from Lanka.
vrm.1.3 Crossing over the ocean by the boulder bridge built by Nala, and seizure of Lanka in night, and Vibhishana, the younger brother of Ravana, whom Ravana banished, comes to meet Rama, and his telling the scheme to kill Ravana to Rama.
vrm.1.3 Crowning of Vibhishana as the king of Lanka, after the demise of Ravana, and also Rama s seeing Pushpaka, the divine Aircraft, and returning to Ayodhya in that Aircraft.
vrm.3.31 Then on going hurriedly from Janasthana and on speedily entering Lanka Akampana spoke these words to Ravana.
vrm.3.31 "Agreed! I wish to go alone early in the morning with a charioteer and I delightfully wish to lead Vaidehi into the elegant city Lanka.
vrm.3.31 Seetha may be brought to Lanka.
vrm.3.31 "Oh, lord of Lanka, be appeased towards Rama, be quietened and gently proceed to Lanka.
vrm.3.31 When thus said by Maricha that ten faced Ravana returned to his city Lanka and entered his best house and home.
vrm.3.32 Highly agitated to witness the deed done by Rama, which deed is highly impossible for others, she hurried Lanka ruled by Ravana.
vrm.3.33 And these figureheads alone become the tiderips, for they quarrel among themselves about the kingship of Lanka after your ruin, and they alone are floating like oceanic tides up above your head and thus you are a submerged sovereign.
vrm.3.35 "Oh, king of the Rakshasas, is everything well with your Lanka? Oh, king, for what reason you have put in an appearance again, that too in a trice?
vrm.3.37 "Has this Seetha, the daughter of Janaka, taken birth to end your life, or what! And because of this Seetha will there be a great disaster, so to speak! "Egocentric and rampant, such as you are, on acquiring you as her lord, will the City of Lanka be doomed along with her Rakshasas, and you put together, or what! "Any king of your like who is with a self will, ill will, ensorcelled by evil, and malicious in intent, that king alone ruins his own city state, his own people, even himself, as a matter of actual fact.
vrm.3.38 "That way I who had been flung into the abyssal water of the ocean by him gained consciousness after a long time and proceeded towards the city of Lanka.
vrm.3.38 "Dense with skyscrapers and palaces, and decorated with many a gemstone is that city Lanka, but you will see it completely shattered down, for the sake of that Maithili.
vrm.3.38 "Without a doubt you will be seeing Lanka encircled with an enmesh of arrows, enfolded in the tongues of torches, while her buildings are utterly gutting down.
vrm.3.40 "My goal will be achieved just by misleading Raghava, and by gaining Seetha without a conflict, then I will proceed to Lanka along with you.
vrm.3.41 "If you are going to bring Seetha from their hermitage on going there with me, then you will not be there, I will not be there, Lanka will not be there, the Rakshasas will not be there.
vrm.3.47 "Nestled on a mountaintop my great city known as Lanka is there in the midst of an ocean and all over encompassed by an ocean.
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.3.50 "When that great mighty Rama has not transgressed either in your country or in your city Lanka, then how you become a transgressor in respect of that noble souled Rama?
vrm.3.51 Ravana, the monarch of Lanka, gazed at that worthily valorous Jatayu, who in his shine is like a blue black cloud with a whitely white chest and who by now is like a quiescent fire storm flattened onto ground.
vrm.3.54 The chief of Rakshasas Ravana captivating Maithili, who is still wailing, has crossed the Pampa region down underneath and advanced facing the City of Lanka.
vrm.3.54 b, a Ravana entered the city of Lanka transporting Seetha, while she wriggling in his flank, who appeared like the personified death of Ravana wriggling its way into his Lanka.
vrm.3.54 On going towards the city Lanka that has well symmetrized roadways, then he entered his own palace chambers which is with very many doors and chambers thronging with crowds.
vrm.3.54 Then on picking up those words amiable to all intents and purposes of Ravana, those eight Rakshasas departed from Lanka on hailing Ravana, and they collectively journeyed in the direction of Janasthana with their imperceivable appearances.
vrm.3.55 "Oh, Seetha, ten crores of first rated Rakshasas are there, furthermore, twenty two crores of Rakshasas of ghastly exploits are there, thus all put together, three hundred twenty millions of Rakshasas are there in Lanka, omitting the weakish, oldish, youngish Rakshasas.
vrm.3.55 Such as I am I pledge entire life of mine along with the suzerainty of this sovereign city state Lanka to you, oh, broad eyed lady, for you are loftier than my lives.
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.3.55 "You rule over this very great empire of Lanka as an empress of Lanka, while me and mine, also thus all Gods like me who hitherto are under my rule, and all mobile and sessile entities of whom I am the ruler, they too will hereafter make ourselves useful as your royal stewards, if you marry me.
vrm.3.56 Thus Lanka is widowed by a single deed of yours.
vrm.4.35 "It is said that the Rakshasas in Lanka are a trillion, plus thirty six thousands of units of military, where one unit consists of a ten thousand warriors, and hundreds and thousands of other Rakshasas are there, thus they say.
vrm.4.58 Literally, he is the son of Vishravasa and brother of Kubera, and he presides over the city named Lanka and he is known as Ravana.
vrm.4.58 There is a lavish city in the oceanic island afar a hundred Yojana s all in all from here, which Vishvakarma, the Divine Architect, has built, and it is called Lanka.
vrm.4.58 a Therein that Lanka pitiable Vaidehi wearing ochry silk sari is lodged in the palace chambers of Ravana, highly sentineled and baulked by Rakshasi s, and you can find king Janaka s daughter Maithili in there.
vrm.4.58 island in southern ocean, which ocean spans in an overalled width of hundred Yojana s from this side of seashore, then landing on the other seashore you can see Lanka secluded all around by ocean, and in such a water walled Lanka you can see Ravana.
vrm.4.58 hence, hurry up, and promptly triumph over Lanka.
vrm.4.58 On deriving indication form Sampati regarding Seetha, Ravana and Lanka, those returnless vanara s returned to their search while their gladness returning to them.
vrm.4.65 If I am not proceeding to Lanka, nor any other Vanara is proceeding, then we have to undertake self immolation once again, isn t it! I do not perceive any secure protection for our lives on our going to Kishkindha without fulfilling the bidding of that resolute king of Vanaras Sugreeva.
vrm.4.67 or, I can even bring isle of Lanka itself extracting it from the ocean.
vrm.4.67 in speediness, he made head away to Lanka, instinctually.
vrm.5.1 "I will go to the city of Lanka, ruled by Ravana just like an arrow released by Rama will go, with wind like speed.
vrm.5.1 I will, in all events, return successfully along with Seetha or I will get Lanka along with Ravana after uprooting it.
vrm.5.1 After that Hanuma for His part obtained the ocean shore, observed the city of Lanka from the top of the mountain, leaving His original form, tormenting animals and Birds, alighted on that mountain.
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.5.2 That Hanuma with great strength crossed the insurmountable ocean without becoming tired and viewed the city of Lanka located on the peak of Mount Trikuta.
vrm.5.2 What to say about the end of the ocean which had been counted to be hundred Yojanas long?" That Hanuma, the best among powerful ones and the foremost also among those who can fly, reached the city of Lanka by crossing the great ocean with good speed.
vrm.5.2 That son of God Vayu stood on a mountain and saw forests and gardens and also the city of Lanka situated on the top of a mountain.
vrm.5.2 The glorious Hanuma neared the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana, and saw the city which looked like the city of Gods in heaven, decorated by moats filled with lotuses and water lilies, which was well protected, since the time of Seetha s abduction, by Ravana and by Rakshasas with horrifying voices roaming around, which was surrounded by a golden boundary wall, that beautiful great city consisted of houses equal in height to mountains and which looked like autumnal clouds, with white and elevated main streets, decorated with flags and pennons, with excellent golden hued archways adorned with sculpted rows of vines.
vrm.5.2 That best among Vanaras Hanuma saw the city of Lanka with beautiful white buildings situated on the top of a mountain like a city located in the sky.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw that city of Lanka ruled by Ravana the king of Rakshasas, constructed by Visvakarma, and which looked as though it were floating in the sky.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw the city of Lanka with buttress and enclosure wall as her hip and loins, the vast body pf water in the moat as her raiment, Sataghnis and Sulas as her locks, the mansions as her earrings, constructed by thought.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw the city of Lanka equal to peak of Kailasa as though touching the sky, as though flying to reach the sky, with its best mansions, filled with horrible rakshasas and serpants like the city of Bhogavati, one which was unfathomable, a well arranged and a clear city governed by Kubera in earlier times, protected by courageous, Nagas ashivishas: who use poison as weapon, Rakshasas and Guhas with sharp teethed weapons, with spikes and Patticas spears in their hands.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw that Lanka s great protection and the ocean and Ravana the horrible enemy and thought thus.
vrm.5.2 It is not possible even for Devas to be victorious against Lanka in war".
vrm.5.2 "Even if He reaches this very difficult and impenetrable Lanka ruled by Ravana, what can that Sri Rama with mighty arms do"?
vrm.5.2 "To achieve this great deed successfully, entering the city of Lanka in a small form at night is a timely thing to do"
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw such that city of Lanka, which was difficult to overcome even for Devas or Asuras, and thought thus repeatedly.
vrm.5.2 "It is not possible to be in Lanka even in the form of a rakshasa.
vrm.5.2 "For that reason, I will become small in my appearance and will enter Lanka at night for the success of the task of Sri Rama.
vrm.5.2 "Entering the unapproachable city of Lanka at night and searching all the mansion of Ravana, I can see Seetha.
vrm.5.2 There in that city of Lanka, the houses of rakshasas shone with top portions painted by cats eyes and emeralds and decorated by groups of pearls.
vrm.5.2 Golden archways with strange hues illuminated the well decorated city of Lanka in all directions.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma on seeing the unimaginable city of Lanka with a wonderful appearance became sad thinking about the prospect of capturing Lanka and also happy being eager to see Seetha.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw that city of Lanka of great fame, with white, closely built buildings having golden windows and doorways of great value, consisting of Rakshasas of great strength and ruled by the hands of Ravana.
vrm.5.3 That Hanuma, best among Vanaras, the intellectual son of Vayu, one with great might, stood on the mountain called Lamba with its high peaks equalling a high cloud, gathered courage and entered at night the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana and filled with beautiful forests and places of water such as lakes.
vrm.5.3 The city of Lanka was shone by buildings equalling autumnal clouds.
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.5.3 Seeing that best among Vanaras Hanuma there, that Lanka ruled by Ravana, rose up herself with a horrific appearance of face an eyes.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! It is indeed not possible for you to enter this city of Lanka which is protected by Ravana s forces and strongly guarded all around.
vrm.5.3 Thereafter the mighty Hanuma spoke to Lanka standing in front of Him as follows "Whatever matter you are asking me, I will tell you that truthfully.
vrm.5.3 Listening to Hanuma s words, that Lanka, with ability to achieve desired form, became angry and spoke these strong words to Hanuma.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! I am protecting this city of Lanka in all directions.
vrm.5.3 The son of Vayu and best among Vanaras heard Lanka s words and stood up like a second mountain, with a purpose.
vrm.5.3 Thereafter that Hanuma the wise one, with great strength, best among those who can fly and best among Vanaras, saw that city of Lanka in the form of an ugly woman and spoke thus.
vrm.5.3 "I should like to see the city of Lanka with its palaces, defensive walls and archways.
vrm.5.3 "My arrival here is indeed to see Lanka s gardens, parks, forests and important houses all over.
vrm.5.3 Listening to Hanuma s words, Lanka with the ability to assume desired form, spoke harsh words stronger than before.
vrm.5.3 Thereafter that Lanka made a great sound causing terror and hit Hanuma, the best among Vanaras, with her palm quickly.
vrm.5.3 Then that tiger among Vanaras, the powerful son of Vayu, being hit powerfully by Lanka made a great sound.
vrm.5.3 Thereafter that Lanka being very gloomy spoke with a falterting tone without pride these words to Hanuma the Vanara.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! I am myself the city of Lanka.
vrm.5.3 "O best aming Vanaras! For that reason, enter the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana and do here whatever tasks you want to.
vrm.5.3 "O lord of Vanaras! Enter the auspicious city of Lanka stuck by the curse, ruled by the king of Rakshasas, roam everywhere and search for the chaste wife Seetha according to your comfort.
vrm.5.4 That Hanuma the best among Vanaras, the great radiant one, the long armed one, conquered with His might the best Lanka who is capable of assuming desired form.
vrm.5.4 Desiring the benefit of the king of Vanaras Sugreeva, that Hanuma entered the city of Lanka and thus actually placed His left foot on the enemies heads.
vrm.5.4 After that Hanuma went towards that beautiful city of Lanka.
vrm.5.4 Then that city of Lanka shone brilliantly being well decorated by the houses of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.4 That glorious Hanuma, performer of beneficial deeds for Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, moved around the city of Lanka which had wonderful garlands and jewellery, for the sake of Sri Rama.
vrm.5.5 Hanuma saw the city of Lanka that shone with great Elephants making sound and also with gentlemen well respected, shone with warriors in a wresting bout, with long sighs, like serpents in a lake hissing.
vrm.5.6 Endowed with great speed, He roamed again the city of Lanka.
vrm.5.6 That great Hanuma thought the house, which was shining with its form filled with Elephants, Horses, chariots, to be the jewel of Lanka.
vrm.5.7 Hanuma saw those houses of the ruler of Lanka, constructed by great effort as though constructed by Maya himself on earth with all best qualities.
vrm.5.7 Thereafter that Hanuma nearing that city of Lanka worshipped by Rakshasas, ruled by arms of ten headed Ravana, moving thereabout became very gloomy on not seeing that Seetha well worshipped by all and greatly conquered by the virtues of Her husband Sri Rama Thereafter then the heart of the great souled Hanuma who contemplated supreme spirit in many ways with a disciplined mind following righteous path, with good observant eyes, moving about in the city of Lanka became greatly sorrowful on not seeing Seetha.
vrm.5.9 quot Hanuma became gloomy and thought thus: Seetha is definitely the best by virtues then this lord of Lanka even though being great otherwise, did an evil and an un gentlemanly deed with her.
vrm.5.13 The simian Hanuma went far from the house of Ravana and not seeing Seetha, the daughter of King Janaka, said these words: “The city of Lanka has been mostly explored by me attempting for the pleasure of Rama.
vrm.5.13 "My crossing of the ocean entering the city of Lanka the site of rakshasas all this will become waste.
vrm.5.13 “To wherever I see Seetha, the wife of Sri Rama and one with fame, till there I will search the city of Lanka again and again.
vrm.5.21 After getting you like that this Lanka filled with best things in a short while will be destroyed due to your one sin.
vrm.5.21 Arrows" with good nodes, with blazing tips, like snakes, with characteristic signs of Rama and Lakshmana will fall down soon here in Lanka.
vrm.5.26 "By which Rama Viradha, best among Rakshasas, has been killed in Dandaka forest in a war, why is that He not saving me?" "This city of Lanka being in the middle of ocean is difficult to be attacked.
vrm.5.26 Rama" will blow away the city of Lanka, will dry up the great ocean, will destroy the name and fame of Ravana.
vrm.5.26 Rama" together will Lakshmana will search the city of Lanka belonging to Rakshasas.
vrm.5.26 "This Lanka shortly will become like a graveyard, with paths agitated with smoke of funeral pyres, crowded with a group of Vultures.
vrm.5.26 "Here in Lanka whatever inauspicious things are being seen, from those, in a short while Lanka will become deprived of glory.
vrm.5.26 "While the sinful, vile Rakshasa Ravana is being killed, Lanka which is unconquerable till now, definitely will get drying up like a woman who lost husband.
vrm.5.26 "Now abounding in pious festivities, the city of Lanka with lost lord together with Rakshasis will become like a woman with lost husband.
vrm.5.26 "The city of Lanka will become burnt by Rama s arrows together with darkness, with destroyed luster with killed best Rakshasas.
vrm.5.27 "Thereafter that best Elephant ascended by those princes Rama and Lakshmana and by Seetha with wide eyes stood on the top of Lanka.
vrm.5.27 "This beautiful city of Lanka has also been seen together with Horses and Elephants with broken gates and arches fallen down in the ocean.
vrm.5.27 Lanka" protected by Ravana has been seen by me in the dream to be burnt by a quick Vanara who is a messenger of Rama.
vrm.5.27 "In Lanka horrible with ash, all Rakshasis were drinking oil, laughing heartily with a great noise and also dancing a lot.
vrm.5.34 I entered the city of Lanka, by traversing the great ocean.
vrm.5.35 Entering even Lanka, filled with Rakshasas in the night, I saw Ravana and you too who were immersed in grief.
vrm.5.36 Rama will paralyze the imperturbable ocean with his flood of arrows and make the City of Lanka extinguished of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.37 "When will Rama reach the end of this grief any more than a thoroughly fatigued man, having suffered a ship wreck is swimming in the middle of the sea?" "When will my husband see me, after annihilation of the Rakshasas, killing of Ravana and making the City of Lanka debacled?.
vrm.5.37 I have indeed capacity to carry even Lanka together with Ravana.
vrm.5.37 "O Seetha! While I am taking you from here, no body staying in Lanka is competent to come along with me.
vrm.5.37 "To me, there is capability to carry this Lanka along with its hills, forest areas, market places, defensive walls and arches together with its Lord Ravana himself.
vrm.5.37 Then, the wicked Rakshasas, catching hold of me fallen, may take me again to Lanka.
vrm.5.38 "I spoke this because of the unassailability of Lanka, its great ocean so difficult to be crossed and also my capacity of taking you.
vrm.5.38 "Those two mighty princes, the excellent among men, are eager to see you and they will reduce Lanka to ashes.
vrm.5.39 "If Rama, the destroyer of rival army, fills the entire Lanka with his arrows and takes me home, it will be quite worthy of him.
vrm.5.39 Those leaders of Vanaras will reach Lanka by one single leap.
vrm.5.39 "Coming together, Rama and Lakshmana the valiant and the excellent among men, can destroy the City of Lanka with their arrows.
vrm.5.39 Thus consoling Seetha, Hanuma the son of Vayu made up his mind to go back and spoke to Seetha again as follows: "That Rama the annihilator of enemies, who firmly decided to destroy his adversaries and Lakshmana wielding a bow in his hand will soon reach the entrance of Lanka and you will see them.
vrm.5.39 "O venerable lady! You shall see many troops of excellent Vanaras resembling hills and clouds, thundering on the peaks of Malaya mountain in Lanka.
vrm.5.40 "Those two princes, the excellent among men, the annihilator of enemies and who are eager to see you, will surely reduce Lanka to ashes.
vrm.5.41 Creating a great displeasure to the mind of that high souled Ravana, the Lord of the land of Lanka that Hanuma decided to fight alone against many mighty Rakshasas and stayed
vrm.5.42 At the screaming sound of Birds and at the sound of the crash of falling trees, all the inhabitants of Lanka then became trembled with fear.
vrm.5.42 "Here, before the eyes of all the Rakshasas, I will annihilate the City of Lanka and after offering salutation to Seetha, I will go back after fully completing my task.
vrm.5.43 Enhancing his body to a very big size by dint of his distinction, Hanuma clapped on his arms strongly, filling the City of Lanka with sound.
vrm.5.43 Here, before the eyes of all the Rakshasas, I will annihilate the City of Lanka and after offering salutation to Seetha, I will go back duly completing my task.
vrm.5.43 For this, the City of Lanka will not be there.
vrm.5.45 Lanka resounded with various kinds of horrible voices.
vrm.5.51 "While strolling around in the city of Lanka, I found Seetha in your abode.
vrm.5.51 "I am indeed, even alone, undoubtedly, destroying Lanka, along with its Horses, chariots and Elephants.
vrm.5.51 "Know her, whom you recognize as Seetha and who stays in your captivity, to be none else than Kalaratri, who can destroy the entire Lanka.
vrm.5.51 "See in the immediate future, this city of Lanka, burnt away by the effulgence of Seetha and the City too being scorched with its markets and main streets, afflicted by the wrath of Rama.
vrm.5.51 "Do not lead to extermination your own friends, counsellors, kinsmen, brothers, sons, well wishers, enjoyments, wives and Lanka.
vrm.5.52 "O king of Rakshasas! O lord of Lanka! Be gracious enough.
vrm.5.53 But, for the delight of Rama, such city of Lanka is fit to be espionaged again.
vrm.5.53 Lanka" was not indeed observed well as to the particulars of specifications of the fort, when it was seen by me during the night.
vrm.5.53 That Hanuma, having an impetuous valour in combat, destroying those Rakshasas and looking over Lanka, shone like the sun encircled with rays, with the wreath of flames blazing on his tail.
vrm.5.54 Then, after fulfilling his heart s wish, Hanuma, looking over Lanka, thought about the remaining act to be done, with an augmented energy.
vrm.5.54 "It is justified to satisfy this blazing flame on my tail, by feeding it to the full, with these excellent houses in the city of Lanka.
vrm.5.54 Then, Hanuma, with his burning tail, strolled over the house tops of Lanka, like a cloud charged with lightning.
vrm.5.54 The high souled Hanuma, the swift Vanara scorched the city of Lanka, as Rudra scorched the city of Tripura.
vrm.5.54 Then, the fire having a terrific prowess, diffused by the swift Hanuma, stretching out a circle of flames, blazed and rose up to the summit of the mountain on which the city of Lanka.
vrm.5.54 The great fire persisted, surrounding the entire Lanka, having a good splendour equal to that of millions of suns and blazed like a broken up hemi sphere of the world, creating many sounds of a wide spread thunderbolt.
vrm.5.54 Then, Lanka having been scorched with its Rakshasas, Horses, Chariots, Elephants, multitude of Birds, animals and trees, cried pitiably with tumultuous noise.
vrm.5.54 Making a very terrific noise with a dreadful sound, the Rakshasas cried in various ways as follows: "O my dear beloved son! O my beloved husband! O my friend! O my very auspicious life, filled with enjoyments!" That Lanka appeared as though afflicted by a curse, as defeated by a strong fury of Hanuma, enveloped by flames of fire, with its distinguished heroes killed and with its warriors in retreat.
vrm.5.54 Hanuma, with his great mind, saw Lanka with its dazed, frightened and dejected Rakshasas, marked by blazing flames of fire and afflicted by the fury of Brahma the creator of the universe.
vrm.5.54 Demolishing the garden, killing the Rakshasas in battle, Hanuma of great splendour shone brightly, after burning the beautiful City of Lanka.
vrm.5.54 Seeing that city of Lanka burnt there, Devas, Siddhas and great sages along with Gandharvas, got a colossal surprise.
vrm.5.55 Seeing the city of Lanka blazing, and frightened with its multitude of Rakshasas getting alarmed, Hanuma the Vanara became thoughtful.
vrm.5.55 He said to himself "What an admonitory act has bee done by me in burning Lanka.
vrm.5.55 "If this whole Lanka for its part has been burnt, the worshipful Seetha too has surely been burnt.
vrm.5.55 "This task of burning Lanka has been fulfilled by me and it has been completed only with a small effort.
vrm.5.55 "The entire Lanka has been reduced to ashes.
vrm.5.55 "The city of Lanka, full of Rakshasas their wives, children and elders running hither and thither, as also filled with an uproar of people, appears as if it weeping through its mountain caves.
vrm.5.56 "But, it will be appropriate for Rama, who destroys the hostile forces, to take me with him, after routing Lanka with his arrows.
vrm.5.57 Killing the foremost of Rakshasas, becoming famous by is name, making Lanka perplexed, causing anguish to Ravana by tormenting his terrible army, and bidding his adieu to Seetha, Hanuma returned by flying over the middle of the sea.
vrm.5.57 Longing to hear about crossing of ocean and the seeing of Lanka, Seetha and Ravana, all those excellent Vanaras waited with their joined palms, in anctipation of Hanuma s words.
vrm.5.58 "After killing her and again recollecting the task to be performed quickly, I travelled for a long distance and saw the southern shore of the ocean, where that City of Lanka, adorned with its trees, was situated.
vrm.5.58 "While the sun was setting, I, without being noticed by the Rakshasas of dreadful prowess, entered the city of Lanka, the abode of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.58 "Then defeating that woman, having her hair looking terrific like a blazing fire and who was trying to kill me, by striking her with a blow of the fist of my left hand and entered the land of Lanka at the dusk of early night.
vrm.5.58 she, being frightened, spoke to me as follows: "O hero! I am the personified City of Lanka.
vrm.5.58 Occupying a lofty palatial mansion of a sanctuary which was an eminent ornament of Lanka.
vrm.5.58 He asked, why did you come to Lanka? Why did you kill the Rakshasas?
vrm.5.58 "The entire Lanka has been reduced to ashes.
vrm.5.59 “I am sufficient, even alone to destroy rapidly that City of Lanka together with those troops of Rakshasas as also the mighty Ravana.
vrm.5.59 Even these Mainda and Dvivida on their part are capable of destroying the entire city of Lanka together with its Horses, chariots and Elephants.
vrm.5.59 "I alone burnt and destroyed the City of Lanka.
vrm.5.65 "There at the southern shore of the southern ocean, there is city called Lanka of the evil minded Ravana.
vrm.5.67 They can reduce Lanka to ashes
vrm.5.68 If Rama, the destroyer of rival army, fills the entire Lanka with arrows and takes me home, it will be quite worthy of him.
vrm.5.68 Those leaders of Vanaras will reach Lanka by one single leap
vrm.5.68 Rama", the annihilator of enemies, similar to a lion, and Lakshmana wielding a bow in his hand, will surely approach the entrance gate of Lanka and you will see them soon.
vrm.5.68 You will hear within a short time, the clamour of the excellent of Vanaras resonating like a mountains and clouds, on the peaks of Mount Malaya in Lanka
vrm.6.1 “Who can return alive, having entered once taking refuge only in self command, the city of Lanka, which is unconquerable by Devas, Asuras and Yakshas and even by Gandharvas, Nagas and Rakshasas and well under the custody of Ravana?”
vrm.6.2 “We shall make our way up to Lanka, by crossing the ocean filled with large crocodiles.
vrm.6.2 and on our seeing that city of Lanka standing on a peak of the Trikuta Mountain.
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.6.3 “Tell me how many citadels in Lanka are difficult of access, Oh, Hanuma! I desire to know all that, as though viewed with an eye.
vrm.6.3 “You had the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the size of the army, the fortification details of the gates and citadels, the way in which Lanka was guarded and the various mansions of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.3 Hearing the words of Rama, Hanuma the son of Vayu, who was excellent in the art of expression, forthwith spoke once more to Rama as follows: “Listen to me! I shall tell you everything–how the city of Lanka has been defended by the various methods of fortification and how it has been guarded by the troops.
vrm.6.3 “I shall tell you the details of how the Rakshasas are attached to their king, the excellent prosperity of Lanka generated by the glory of Ravana, the awfulness of the ocean, the division of the body of his forces and of animals like Horses and Elephants carrying his forces other than the infantry.
vrm.6.3 “The great Lanka was rejoiced and gayful, full of Elephants in rut, abounding in chariots and inhabited by gangs of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.3 “A great Rampart made of Gold, which is difficult to assail with violence and is inlaid at intervals with gems, corals, cat’s eyes and pearls, encircle that Lanka.
vrm.6.3 Lanka“ therefore is impregnable, it is a celestial citadel, that inspires terror.
vrm.6.3 Lanka“ is situated on the other side of the ocean, which is difficult of access, Oh Rama! It offers no passage for vehicles either and there is no proper communication from all sides.
vrm.6.3 “That city of Lanka, resembling the city of Devas, is built on a mountain peak and is inaccessible.
vrm.6.3 That Lanka is abound with Horses and Elephants and is extremely difficult to conquer.
vrm.6.3 Deep trenches and Sataghnis too as well as Engines of war of every kind adorn Lanka the city of wicked Ravana.
vrm.6.3 The city of Lanka was burnt by me and the defensive walls were pulled down.
vrm.6.3 The city of Lanka should be assumed then as destroyed by the Vanaras.
vrm.6.3 “Oh, Rama! What is the use for the rest of the forces to you? Angada, Dvivida, Mainda, Jambavan, Panasa, Anala and Nila the commander in chief alone, by reaching that great city of Ravana leaping and storming Lanka with its mountains and woods, moats and archways, protective walls and buildings, will recover Seetha.
vrm.6.4 Rama, a very bright man and a true warrior, having duly heard the words of Hanuman from the beginning, thereafter spoke as follows: “I shall destroy quickly Lanka, the city of that terrible Rakshasa Ravana, of which you just informed I am really telling this.
vrm.6.4 Where will he go alive? Hearing of my march to Lanka, Seetha will get back her hope in life, like a sick man having drunk poison touches Ambrosia at the end of his life.
vrm.6.6 Having seen the fearful and the terrible act in Lanka done by Hanuma, like Devendra the powerful King of Devas, Ravana with his face descended a little with shame, spoke to the Rakshasas as follows: “By him, who was only a Vanara, the irresistible City of Lanka was entered into and was over powered.
vrm.6.6 The entire City of Lanka was made turbid.
vrm.6.6 Rama“ surrounded by thousands of courageous Vanaras, is coming to the City of Lanka, for the purpose of besieging us.
vrm.6.7 “Approaching that huge ocean of army of Celestials, whose fish are lanes and spheres, whose guts thrown asunder as duck weeds, whose turtles are the Elephants, whose frogs are the teeming Horses, infested with Alligators in the form of Rudras and Adityas with Uragas, Maruts and Vasus, having chariots Horses and Elephants for its volume of waters and the sandy Elephants for its volume of waters and the sandy banks its infantry, Devendra was captured by him and was impelled to come to Lanka as a detenu.
vrm.6.8 “This insult to the city of Lanka and the palaces together with attack by Sugreeva on the glorious Ravana are still outrageous.
vrm.6.9 “Now itself, we shall kill Rama along with Lakshmana and Sugreeva as well as the pitiable Hanuma by whom Lanka was attacked.
vrm.6.9 "Before the City of Lanka with its Elephants, Horses and many riches are shattered by arrows, let Seetha be given away to him.
vrm.6.9 “Not so long as the huge army of Vanaras which is very dangerous and unconquerable attacks our Lanka, let Seetha be given away.
vrm.6.9 “If the beloved wife of Rama is not given away of your own accord, the city of Lanka will indeed perish.
vrm.6.11 Hearing those words, the messenger impelled the Rakshasas staying in entertainment places, in bedrooms or in gardens and went without fear to every house in Lanka.
vrm.6.13 Once upon a time, this city of Lanka ruled by Kubera was conquered by me with the power of my arms.
vrm.6.14 “Even before the Vanaras with their body size as mountain peaks, having their teeth and nails as weapons, rush full upon the city of Lanka, give back Sita to Rama.
vrm.6.19 “Abandoning Lanka, friends and possessions, I place my kingdom, life and happiness at your disposal.
vrm.6.19 “In the city of Lanka, are residing ten thousand crore Rakshasas, who can assume any form at will and who consume flesh and blood as their staple food”
vrm.6.19 “I will extend my help in killing the Rakshasas and in attacking the city of Lanka.
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 That Rakshasa, the spy of Ravana the evil natured king of Rakshasas, coolly observed that army from all sides, speedily returned to Lanka and spoke to their king as follows: “Boundless and immeasurable like another ocean, this multitude of Vanaras and Rikshas is approaching Lanka.
vrm.6.20 “What does it matter to you, if I have embezzled the wife of a wise prince? Therefore return to Kishkindha” “This Lanka cannot be reached by Vanaras in any way.
vrm.6.20 Arriving with a great army, I will reduce the entire Lanka and all of you to ashes.
vrm.6.20 Let him not return to Lanka.
vrm.6.23 Rama the lord, the conqueror of enemies and a charming man thus speaking, wielded a bow and sallied forth in front, facing towards Lanka.
vrm.6.24 Then, the Vanaras heard a great tumult arising in Lanka and noisy sounds of kettle drums and tabours which caused their hair to stand on end.
vrm.6.24 Seeing Lanka dressed with multi coloured flags and buntings, Rama bethought himself of Seetha and his heart was filled with grief.
vrm.6.24 O, Lakshmana! Look at this Lanka, which appears as though constructed on a hill top by Visvakarma with his imagination and so elevated
vrm.6.24 The City of Lanka was constructed thick with many seven storied building and appears like a sky the abode of Vishnu covered with white clouds.
vrm.6.24 Lanka is made beautiful by the garden vying with Chaitraratha garden of Kubera, with songs of Birds of various species, with fruit bearing flowers and charms in bloom.
vrm.6.24 With a desire to crush the Rakshasas in battle, the Vanaras, seizing peaks of mountains and gigantic trees, reached Lanka.
vrm.6.24 All the heroic Vanaras held the following resolve in their minds, It is with peak of mountains or with our bare fists even, we shall shatter this Lanka into pieces.
vrm.6.25 "O, Rama the conqueror of hostile citadels! These two Rakshasas are Shuka and Sarana, the ministers of Ravana and they came here as spies from Lanka.
vrm.6.25 "When you return to the city of Lanka, repeat my words faithfully to Ravana the younger half brother of Kubera and the king of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.25 Tomorrow", at break of day, you will see my arrows demolish the city of Lanka with its ramparts and arches as well as the army of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.25 Receiving this command, the two Rakshasas, Shuka and Sarana, admiring his justice, cried out: "May you be victorious!", reached the city of Lanka and spoke to Ravana as follows:
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.6.25 "Such is Rama s form and such are his weapons, that he can alone overthrow the city of Lanka, his three other companious standing by.
vrm.6.26 "He, the valiant one, who holds his arms high, who tramples the earth under his feet as he marches, whose face is turned towards Lanka, who in fury is knitting his brows very much, who is resembling a mountain peak in stature, who is like filaments of a louts in hue, who is excess of anger continuously lashes out his tail and the swish of which is heard in ten regions, he is the prince named Angada, anointed by Sugreeva the king of Vanaras and is challenging you to the battle.
vrm.6.26 "He, the valiant one, who holds his arms high, who tramples the earth under his feet as he marches, whose face is turned towards Lanka, who in fury is knitting his brows very much, who is remsebling amountain peak in stature, who is like filaments ofa louts in hue, who is excess of anger continuously lashes out his tail and the swish of hwich is heard in ten regious, he is the prince named Angada, anointed by Sugreeva the king of Vanaras and is challenging you to the battle.
vrm.6.26 Nala himself with his aforesaid army aspires to smash Lanka forthwith.
vrm.6.26 He yearns to fight and boast that he with destroy Lanka his forces.
vrm.6.26 "O, king! He who resembles a tawny lion with a long mane and who is looking at Lanka attentively as though he wishes to consume it with his glasses, who dwells mostly on the mountains of Krishna and Sahya of Vindhya range of pleasing aspect, is the General named Rambha.
vrm.6.26 Three thousand crores of excellent Vanaras, who are formidable of impetuous valour and vigour, surround him who is marching ahead and follow in his goot sets to destroy Lanka.
vrm.6.26 He himself wishes to crush the city of Lanka with the help of his army.
vrm.6.27 Hundreds" and thousands of troop leaders who are resolved to be the servants of Sugreeva rally behind him, carrying trees with them and with an intention to attack Lanka soon.
vrm.6.27 He hopes to crush Lanka with the help of his army.
vrm.6.27 “O, monarch! One hundred lakhs of Vanaras with their black faces, with fearful appearance and with great strength, experiencing the crossing of the bridge, surrounds the troop leader by name Gavaksha, a Vanara and are making a roaring noise, ready to crush Lanka by their bodily strength.
vrm.6.27 All of them stand looking on your Lanka as if they are about to crush it.
vrm.6.27 He swears to destroy Lanka with his troops.
vrm.6.28 “These two, who ate ambrosion on due authorization by Brahma, are hopefully of destroying Lanka by their power.
vrm.6.28 “As for that Vanara who you see there, resembling an intoxicated Elephant, who in strength and fury is able to churn up the ocean itself, it is he who came to Lanka to find Seetha and spy on you, O, Lord! See that Vanara, who was seen earlier and who appears here again.
vrm.6.28 “He alone wants to destroy Lanka by his valour.
vrm.6.28 How do you forget this Vanara by whom this fire was lighted and is still blazing up Lanka.
vrm.6.28 “He, who was consecrated as a king for Lanka by the illustrious Rama, the king of kings, is enraged really with you and is to attack us in the battle.
vrm.6.29 Those Rakshasas, harassed by the courageous and the quick paced Vanaras, became insensible, heaved a sigh and reached back Lanka.
vrm.6.30 “While being plagued by the Vanaras and asked for protection with joined palms, I was saved fortunately by Rama, saying ‘stay!stay!’ Rama“ has filled the sea with boulders and rocks, taking up his position at the gates of Lanka and stands there, well equipped with weapons.
vrm.6.30 He is encircled on all sides by the Vanaras and is approaching towards Lanka.
vrm.6.30 "There is the prince of Rakshasas Vibhishana, your brother, who having secured the city of Lanka as a prospective gift from Rama remains devoted to the good of Rama.
vrm.6.31 The spies of king Ravana informed him that Rama with his imperturbable army was encamped at Mount Suvela in Lanka.
vrm.6.31 Hearing through his spies that Rama with his mighty army had arrived to Lanka, Ravana was a little agitated and spoke to his counsellors as follows: The time for deliberation has come to us.
vrm.6.34 Hearing that sound of that Vanara troops, the servants of Ravana stationed in Lanka were lack luster with their movements, overcome by depression.
vrm.6.35 "With terrifying clamour, monstrous clouds, inspiring horror, rain hot blood on Lanka on every side.
vrm.6.35 Entering Lanka, they are in the groves, forming into groups.
vrm.6.36 Ravana the Rakshasa on his part, assisted by his ministers having deliberated on the things to be examined, set about planning the defense of Lanka.
vrm.6.36 Making an arrangement in Lanka in this manner, that bull among Rakshasas, under the sway of Time, deemed his purpose as accomplished.
vrm.6.37 "Observe this city of Lanka, ruled by Ravana, impregnable both to Devas and Asuras together, or the Uragas and Gandharvas.
vrm.6.37 "My counsellors named Anala, Panasa, Sampati and Pramati went to the City of Lanka and returned here.
vrm.6.37 "All these counsellors of mine watched those groups of troops arranged in Lanka in this manner and immediately returned here.
vrm.6.37 The mighty armed Vibhishana showed those counsellors to Rama after reporting the aforesaid news pertaining to Lanka, thus informed by his counsellors.
vrm.6.37 The counsellors of Vibhishana themselves confirmed all that was known regarding Lanka.
vrm.6.37 "At the eastern gate of Lanka, Nila that lion among Vanaras for his part, surrounded by many Vanaras, should attack Prahasta.
vrm.6.37 Thereafter, having covered the entire filed with his great army and having made up his mind to destroy the enemies, that high souled Rama of great courage, set out for Lanka with a joyous and exultant air.
vrm.6.38 "We shall see Lanka the abode of that Rakshasa, Ravana the evil minded by whom my wife was taken away for the sake of his own death, by whom virtue was not understood, good character was not known and noble lineage was not seen and by whom that contemptible act was done with an inferior Rakshasa mind.
vrm.6.38 Having ascended the mountain from all sides within no long time, they saw at its apex, the city of Lanka which appeared as though it was hanging in the sky.
vrm.6.38 The chiefs of Vanara troops saw that beautiful City of Lanka, furnished with excellent gates, enriched with exquisitc ramparts and pervaded all over with Rakshasas.
vrm.6.39 The valiant army chiefs of Vanaras stayed on Suvela mountain for that night and saw the garden and groves in Lanka.
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.6.39 Some other troop leaders of the valiant Vanaras came out of their troops with due permission from sugreeva and went towards Lanka, the city adorned with flags
vrm.6.39 Those Vanaras, great in making noises causing the Birds to frighten and displeasing to the animals and Elephants, went, causing that Lanka to tremble, by their noises.
vrm.6.39 Lanka, ruled by Ravana, with a breadth of eighty mile and a length of one hundred sixty miles, was located on the apex of the mountain there.
vrm.6.39 The city of Lanka looked beautiful with its towering City gates resembling white clouds as well as with golden and silver ramparts.
vrm.6.39 The city of Lanka, greatly adorned by palaces and seven storied mansions, looked like the sky with clouds at the end of a summer and as a region of Vishnu between earth and heaven.
vrm.6.39 A palace, duly graced with a thousand pillars, which looked like a peak of Mount Kailasa was three in the City of Lanka, which was always the City of Lanka, which was always protected by a complete army of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.40 Halting there just for a while and surveying the ten cardinal points, Rama saw the city of Lanka, which was beautifully constructed by Visvakarma, the divine architect on the top of Trikuta Mountain with nice arrangements and ravishing with enchanting groves.
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 Rama, the mighty armed, together with the mighty army marched in front, wielding a bow, towards the city of Lanka, at the befitting moment.
vrm.6.41 Those two brothers Rama and Lakshmana, the destroyers of their adversaries, reached the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana, in not a long time.
vrm.6.41 The Vanaras, encouraged by the sound of Ramas’ voice and obedient to his command, halted before the city of Lanka, garlanded with banners, beautiful and splendid with pleasure gardens, having an unusual rampart which is inaccessible with its elevated arched door ways and invincible even by the Devas.
vrm.6.41 Reaching the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana, the heroic Rama the son of Dasaratha accompanied by Lakshmana, halted near the northern gate, where Ravana stayed.
vrm.6.41 By the Vanaras who reached Lanka and by those stationed already beneath its walls, the air and earth seem to be completely filled.
vrm.6.41 A hundred divisions of one lakh each of Rikshas and Vanaras poured towards the gates of Lanka, while others proceeded to fight on every side.
vrm.6.41 Even winds were unable to penetrate Lanka being surrounded on all sides by heroic Vanaras holding tree trunks in their hands.
vrm.6.41 By that great tumult, the entire Lanka with its ramparts arches, hills, woods and forests began to tremble.
vrm.6.41 Calling to his mind the duty of the kings, Rama who was eager to undertake what was to be done next, in concurrence with Vibhishana, summoned Angada the son of Vali and spoke as follows: “Go my gentle Angada on my behalf and, passing thought the city of Lanka without fear and anxiety and Lanka without fear and anxiety and approaching Ravana the unfortunate Rakshasa devoid of sovereignty and who has lost his splendour because of his inclination to die admonish him in the following words:” “O, Ravana the Ranger of the Night! In your reckless arrogance, sages, Devas, Gandharvas, Apsaras, Nagas, Yakshas and kings have been oppressed by you.
vrm.6.41 I am stationed myself at the gate of Lanka, with a Rod of chastisement.
vrm.6.41 Surely, this illustrious Rakshasa will obtain the kingdom of Lanka, which will henceforth be free from troubles.
vrm.6.41 Let Lanka be obliged to be seen well by you like your last sight, as your survival is in my hands.
vrm.6.41 Seeing hundreds of divisions of those Vanaras encamped under the walls of Lanka, marshaled on the shores of the sea, the Rakshasas were amazed and some others were terror struck while others, overjoyed at the prospect of fighting, leapt even in exultation.
vrm.6.42 That Ravana caught a glimpse of the city of Lanka, with its mountains, groves and forests all being covered by innumerable troops of Vanaras, waiting for war.
vrm.6.42 Full of delight, Rama passed forward on the back of a Vanara along with his army and saw Lanka being guarded on all sides and thronged with Rakshasas.
vrm.6.42 Seeing that city of Lanka duly decorated with banners and flags, Rama remembered Seetha with a distressed heart.
vrm.6.42 “We shall tear asunder this Lanka with mountain peaks or with fists alone.
vrm.6.42 In order to fulfill Ramas’ cherished desire, those troops, forming themselves into columns, began to scale the heights of Lanka, while Ravana stood gazing.
vrm.6.42 Those Vanaras, of golden hue with coppery countenance, fighting with Sala trees and mountain peaks, marched ahead towards the city of Lanka, ready as they were to lay down their lives in Ramas’ service.
vrm.6.42 The commanders scaled the walls of Lanka, taking with them battalions of Vanaras in thousands, in crores and even hundreds of crores.
vrm.6.42 The Vanaras who resembled great Elephants hurled themselves towards that Lanka, springing, leaping and roaring.
vrm.6.42 The Vanaras, who were able to change their form at will, shouting Victory“ to the mighty Rama and the valiant Lakshmana!” Victory“ of Sugreeva protected by Raghava!” and roaring, rushed towards the defensive walls of Lanka.
vrm.6.46 “This non sensical pest, which was wearing away the very roots of us all, on whose account, the three watches of the night slipped past my father, who is unable even to touch his couch with his limbs, who remains absorbed in thought and stricken with grief and because of whom, the entire city of Lanka remains agitated, like a river during the rains, has ban destroyed by me.
vrm.6.46 Indrajit, full of joy and victorious in conflict, returned to Lanka, spreading happiness among the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.46 Indrajit, the great conjurer, surrounded by all his forces, re entered the city of Lanka.
vrm.6.47 Indrajit, the son of Ravana having returned to Lanka, his purpose accomplished, the leading Vanaras surrounded Rama in order to watch over him.
vrm.6.47 Ravana the king of Rakshasas, thrilled with rapture, caused Lanka to be garlanded with flags and banners and arranged a proclamation to be made in Lanka announcing that Rama and Lakshmana had been slain by Indrajit in battle.
vrm.6.48 After sending back that aerial car, Pushpaka which was as swift as the thought, the sorrowful Seetha was caused by Trijata to enter Lanka once more.
vrm.6.50 Then, Sugreeva the magnanimous King of Vanaras embraced that Vibhishana thus lamenting and spoke the following words: "O, knower of what is right! You shall certainly reign over Lanka.
vrm.6.50 "When, under the flutter of your arrows, Lanka has been destroyed save for the aged and the children and you have slain Ravana,.
vrm.6.50 Uttering great noises, frightning the Rakshasas and desirous to fight, the Vanaras reached the gates of Lanka.
vrm.6.52 Seeing Dhumraksha having been killed, the Rakshasas left surviving were frightened of being killled by the Vanaras and re entered Lanka.
vrm.6.54 Seeing Vajradamshtra having been slain, the Rakshasas, deluded with fear, fled panic stricken towards Lanka, harassed by the Vanaras with their down cast faces, their heads bowed in shame.
vrm.6.56 All those defeated warriors, throwing their arms, escaped in the direction of Lanka, terrified, pursued by those Vanaras.
vrm.6.56 When those Rakshasas had entered Lanka, all the mighty Vanaras approached Hanuman and paid homage to him.
vrm.6.57 Having reflected awhile and deliberated with his ministers, Ravana the king of Rakshasas then passed that forenoon in inspecting his defenses in the City of Lanka.
vrm.6.57 Seeing Lanka besieged, Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas spoke as follows to Prahasta who was skilled in war fare and who wished well of him even at a critical time.
vrm.6.57 Within a short while, that City of Lanka was filled with those terrific Rakshasa warriors, resembling Elephants and wielding various types of weaponry.
vrm.6.57 Then, Prahasta the one who was commanded by Ravana, ascended his chariot and set out from Lanka soon along with a huge army.
vrm.6.57 The uproar that arose on his setting forth with his Rakshasas raising the war cries drew sinister answering calls from all creatures in Lanka.
vrm.6.58 Hearing Rama s words, Vibhishana replied as follows "He is guarded by two thirds of the army of Lanka.
vrm.6.58 Thier leader having been slain by Nila that unshakable and large army of Rakshasas, becoming disconsolated, withdrew to Lanka.
vrm.6.59 Go and return to Lanka.
vrm.6.59 At these words, that King Ravana, his joy boasting subdued, his bow shattered, his Horses and chariot slain pierced with arrows, his great diadem broken, he soon returned to Lanka.
vrm.6.59 Devas and Danavas returned to Lanka, Rama arranged for drawing out arrows from Vanaras and from Lakshmana too, in the forefront of that vast battle field.
vrm.6.60 Returning to the City of Lanka, Ravana the King of Rakshasas was afflicted with the fear of Rama s arrows, his pride was humbled and his senses troubled.
vrm.6.60 The entire Lanka, with its mountain and groves, was filled with great noise.
vrm.6.60 Vanaras", whose forms are as large as mountains, are besieging Lanka.
vrm.6.61 Seeing the army running away and the Rakshasa increasing his body, Rama with a surprise, spoke to vibhishana as follows: "This eminent Rakshasa, appearing as a mountain, with a diadem and tawmy eyes and looking like a cloud with a flash of lightning, is seen in Lanka.
vrm.6.61 Occupying the door ways, high ways and bridges of Lanka, stand ready for operation.
vrm.6.62 "Rescuing me, whose treasury has become completely diminished, you protect this city of Lanka, where only the children and the aged are left over.
vrm.6.63 "Let all those Rakshasas in Lanka, whose relatives have died in battle, witness the death of the most beloved Rama today.
vrm.6.63 In the battle, I will kill Rama, Lakshmana, the mighty Sugreeva and even Hanuma, by whom the city of Lanka was burnt off and the Rakshasas were killed.
vrm.6.65 "Having access to this king, who has friends merely for a name sake as also behaving unfriendly, the treasury got depleted, the army destroyed and king alone is left the Lanka.
vrm.6.67 Uprooting a crest from Malaya mountain standing in the vicinity of Lanka and approaching Sugreeva, he struck him with it.
vrm.6.67 Taking that Sugreeva who was throbbing, that kumbhakarna entered the City of Lanka, where he was greatly revered with showers of foremost flowers by the citizens staying in celestial cars, streets, houses and gate ways of temples.
vrm.6.67 Creating a resound everywhere in all directions, even in hill caves, in the great ocean, in Lanka as also in the armies of Vanaras and Rakshasas, Kumbhakarna s feet fell down.
vrm.6.68 Injured by Rama s arrows, Kumbhakarna who was looking like a mountain became an ugly mass, with his body discharging blood, as his nose and ears were cut off, resembling a tree scorched by a forest fire, with his trunk half submerged in a terribly looking sea and obstructing the main gate of Lanka.
vrm.6.68 "It is doubly sure that the Vanaras, having achieved their purpose, will be rejoiced and now itself will ascend the inaccessible door ways of Lanka here from all sides.
vrm.6.69 Lanka, like the Gods leaving Amaravati.
vrm.6.71 Lanka is feeling fearless, by resting on his arm.
vrm.6.71 As their leader was dead, the Rakshasas were then frightened and becoming indifferent to fight, went running away all around, with their faces turned towards that City of Lanka.
vrm.6.73 With that Indrajit, having a splendour equal to that of the sun and having no warrior who can stand him as his rival, the City of Lanka shone, like the sky shining with the sun.
vrm.6.73 “Finding both of us fallen unconscious without displaying any joy or anger as also having desisted from fighting, Indrajit will certainly return to Lanka, after having obtained laurels of battle in its beginning itself.
vrm.6.73 Thus causing the army of Vanaras along with Rama and Lakshmana to become despondent in battle, that Indrajit, getting eulogized by the Rakshasas, quickly reached the city of Lanka which was being protected by Ravanas’ arms.
vrm.6.74 Confounded with panic, the City of Lanka, whose principal gates were broken, whose houses and town gates were shattered, appeared as though dancing at night.
vrm.6.74 Hearing his loud noise, roaring clamorously, the foremost of Rakshasas residing in the City of Lanka, were not able to stir anywhere.
vrm.6.74 Hearing their awfully excessive noises the inhabitants of Lanka roared still more terribly.
vrm.6.74 From the day the Vanaras and Rakshasas began to fight in Lanka, from that day onwards, under the orders of Ravana, all those Rakshasas, who were being killed by the foremost of Vanaras were being thrown away into the sea as and when they were killed, merely or the sake of honour so that their number may not be known to the Vanaras.
vrm.6.75 “Let those dexterous Vanaras, possessing the strength of Lions, taking torches in their hands, rush towards Lanka quickly, in order to set ablaze the abode of Ravana.
vrm.6.75 Then at the sunset of that awful evening, those foremost of the Vanaras, went towards Lanka, with torches in their hands.
vrm.6.75 When the troops of Vanaras, with torches in their hands, attacked Lanka on all sides, the diversely eyed Rakshasas who were holding the position of guards, suddenly fled away.
vrm.6.75 The fire there burnt away hundreds and thousands of inhabitants of Lanka, who were protected by gold coloured armoury and decked with garlands, ornaments and garments, with quivering eyes due to inebriation, moving with lustful walking, who were seized with fury against their enemy, who carried maces, pikes and swords in their hands, who were eating and drinking too or lay fast asleep on splendid beds with their loved ones and who were decamping quickly to all sides, taking their sons with them, frightened and fearing up again and again.
vrm.6.75 That City of Lanka at night with its house tops being burnt ablaze with flames, looked like Kimshuka trees in full bloom.
vrm.6.75 With their Elephants let loose by the superintendents of the Elephants and Horses too set free, Lanka was like an ocean, with roaming alligators in it at the end of a world cycle.
vrm.6.75 While Lanka was being burnt, the great ocean, with its image reflected on its waters, assumed like a great sea with red waters.
vrm.6.75 Incited by Ravana, the valiant Rakshasas then, wielding shining weapons and roaring repeatedly, sallied forth from Lanka.
vrm.6.75 The Rakshasas there strolled in the streets of Lanka, with their ears bitten off with teeth, their skulls smashed with fists and their limbs broken by crag blows.
vrm.6.79 Seeing the fall of Makaraksha, all those Rakshasas, tormented by the fear of Rama s arrows, ran away straight to Lanka.
vrm.6.83 “O the foremost among men! O the long armed one! O the firmly resolute one! Arise! Why are you not knowing about yourself, who is the great souled and whose spirit is disciplined?” “O faultless one! On seeing the death of Seetha and enraged, rising to do favour for you, I shall completely destroy with my arrows, Lanka with its chariots, Elephants and Horses along with Ravana.
vrm.6.85 Today", the arrows released from my bow, piercing Indrajit, will drop into the City of Lanka, as swans descend into a louts pond.
vrm.6.86 That tumultuous battle between the Vanaras and the Rakshasas rendered Lanka noisy on all sides with its great uproar.
vrm.6.87 Neither will this City of Lanka will exist any longer nor you nor your father.
vrm.6.90 Thus speaking, Indrajit the annihilator of enemies, having deceived the Vanaras, entered the City of Lanka for the sake of getting anther chariot.
vrm.6.90 Abandoning their weapons, while being struck by the Vanaras, those Rakshasas went towards Lanka, running fast stupefied.
vrm.6.90 Tormented by the Vanaras, some were scared and entered Lanka.
vrm.6.92 "O destroyer of enemies! Where did you go leaving the rank of Prince Regent as also Lanka, the Rakshasas, your mother and myself, your wives and all of us.
vrm.6.93 Those surviving Rakshasas, with their Horses killed, with their chariots destroyed, with thier flag staffs broken and with broken spirits, rushed back towards the City of Lanka.
vrm.6.94 "Had Ravana followed Vibhishana s advice, this Lanka would not have become a burial ground, tormented by sorrow.
vrm.6.95 Ravana for his part heard the mournful and plaintive cry of the afflicted female Rakshasas in every house at Lanka.
vrm.6.95 Going around the city of Lanka, the army chiefs for their part, with quick resolution, joined hand in hand and hastened the Rakshasas in every house to set out for the battle.
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.6.104 "If you inhabited with me in Lanka for a long time and if you remember my merit, drive back the chariot swiftly till my enemy does not withdraw.
vrm.6.106 Lanka was overcast with dusk, resembling a red Japa flower.
vrm.6.106 The land in Lanka, as also the day appeared as if they were blazing.
vrm.6.108 Tormented by the Vanaras, the Rakshasas rushed back with panic towards Lanka, with faces looking miserable and tears flowing down, their supporter having been killed.
vrm.6.111 "We felt painful, the moment Hanuma penetrated, by dint of his prowess, deep into the City of Lanka, which was difficult to be entered even for Gods.
vrm.6.111 We felt perturbed, the moment Hanuma penetrated, by dint of his prowess, deeply into the City of Lanka, which was difficult to be entered even for Gods.
vrm.6.111 “He was the protector of the island of Lanka.
vrm.6.111 "As though fast asleep, why are you not replying to me, the granddaughter of Sumali the Rakshasa who was clever, endowed with extraordinary prowess and never retreated in battles, tormented with grief as I am?" "Arise, arise! Why are you lying down, though subjected to a fresh insult? The sun s rays have penetrated deep into Lanka today, without any fear.
vrm.6.111 Entering the City of Lanka, that Vibhishana, the lord of Rakshasas, quickly concluded the Agnihotra the act of pouring oblations into the sacred fire carried on by Ravana.
vrm.6.112 "O the benevolent Lakshmana! Consecrate on the throne of Lanka, this Vibhishana to whom everyone is attached, a loyal person as he is and the one who has formerly done a service to us.
vrm.6.112 "O gentle one! This s my paramount desire that I should see this Vibhishana, the brother of Ravana being consecrated for throne in Lanka.
vrm.6.112 Thereupon, Lakshmana together with his friends, taking one pot and making Vibhishana to sit on the throne, sprinkled him with sea water from that pot in accordance with the rule prescribed in Vedic scriptures, while the Rakshasas were witnessing the ceremony, to make him the king for Lanka, as directed by Rama.
vrm.6.112 Seeing Vibhishana the lord of Rakshasas consecrated for the throne of Lanka, his four counsellors who were always together with him and such of those Rakshasas who were devoted to him, were rejoiced.
vrm.6.112 "O the benevolent one! Taking permission from this Vibhishana, the great king and entering into the City of Lanka, inform about our welfare to Seetha.
vrm.6.113 Thus directed by Rama, Hanuma the son of Marut, entered deeply into the City of Lanka, being respectfully received by the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.113 That Hanuma, the Vanara, known to Seetha, having entered the City of Lanka, seeking permission from Vibhishana, getting approval from him and entering Ashoka grove as per the prevailing regulation, saw at the foot of a tree, Seetha, who was bereft of freshness, looking joylessly like a frightened cow and surrounded with female Rakshasas.
vrm.6.113 Even the Lanka has been subdued.
vrm.6.113 This kingdom of Lanka has now been placed indeed under the dominion ship of Vibhishana.
vrm.6.115 "What is the use of a prowess, however great, of that weak minded man who does not wipe out, by his energy, the insult fallen to his lot?" "The praise worthy act of Hanuma in the form of crossing of the ocean and the destroying of Lanka, has borne fruit today.
vrm.6.116 Why I, who was still in Lanka, was not abandoned then itself?" "O hero! Life would have been given up by me, when deserted by you immediately on hearing the message conveying your desertion before the eyes of the Vanara.
vrm.6.116 "This wasteful endeavour in the form of crossing over to Lanka and waging war against the mighty Ravana, keeping your life in jeopardy, would not have been there, nor would have your friends been put to such fruitless hardship.
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.6.122 denizens of forests, who performed tasks of exertion, be honoured with tasks of exertion, be honoured with precious stones and riches of various kinds, O Vibhishana!” “O Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas! Lanka has conquered by you, in collaboration with these Vanaras, who never turned their backs in battles and fought joyfully, ignoring all risk to their lives.
vrm.6.122 “O Vibhishana! Settle down in your kingdom at Lanka, conferred by me.
vrm.6.123 “O Seetha! Look at the City of Lanka, resting firmly on the mount of Trikuta, looking like a peak of Mount Kailasa and built by Viswakarma, the universal architect.
vrm.6.124 "O Rama, devoted to virtue! Even the appearance of Maricha, the abduction of Seetha by Ravana, the sight of Kabandha, your arrival at the Pampa lake, your alliance with Sugreeva, how Vali was killed by you, the search operation for Seetha, the exploit of Hanuma, the tracing of Seetha, how the bridge, Nalasetu was constructed over the sea, how the City of Lanka was set fire by the rejoiced Vanara chiefs, how that Ravana who was the thorn in the side of Gods and how was arrogant of his might, was killed in battle, with his sons kinsfolk and his ministers as the Gods happened, how a boon was conferred by them on you all this is known to me by virtue of my asceticism.
vrm.6.126 “Going still faster and ascending along with Seetha, the aerial car, Pushpaka, which was as swift as thought, the mighty Ravana the king of Rakshasas thereupon entered the City of Lanka.
vrm.6.126 "Excited as he was to put forth a war effort, he set his mind on the destruction of Lanka, as the Agni intending to destroy all the three worlds, would, at the end of the universe.
vrm.6.128 The righteous and the renowned king Vibhishana too, after obtaining the treasure of his race kingdom of Rakshasas, followed by those foremost of Rakshasas, returned to Lanka.
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.7.3 There in Lanka, do thou, forsooth, reside.
vrm.7.3 Now Lanka is vacant, and there is no one that lords it over her.
vrm.7.3 Hearing the righteous speech of his sire, that virtuous souled one along with thousands of delighted and joyous Rakshasas, began to reside in Lanka stationed on the top of the mount.
vrm.7.3 In a short time Lanka, through his sway, abounded in wealth.
vrm.7.3 And that foremost of Nairitas, the righteous son of Visrava, well pleased, abode in Lanka having the Ocean for her entrenchment.
vrm.7.4 Hearing the words uttered by Agastya, Rama wondered as to how formerly Rakshasas were generated in Lanka.
vrm.7.4 And then shaking his head, he, struck with wonder, momentarily eying Agastya, addressed Agastya resembling fire, saying, "O worshipful one, hearing thy words that formerly Lanka had been in the possession of the lesh eaters, I have been seized with great amazement.
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 On being asked thus the celestial architect replied: "Do you repair unto Lanka, where I had formerly built a great city with a magnificiant palace for Vasava.
vrm.7.5 And obtaining Lanka, the night rangers, exceedingly delighted, began to dwell therein.
vrm.7.6 There is a city named Lanka, stationed on the top of Trikuta, extremely diicult of entrance.
vrm.7.6 And pufed up with pride of prowess, the Rakshas march, leaving Lanka, and the enemies of the Devas went to the heavenly regions for battle.
vrm.7.6 And perceiving the destruction of Lanka at hand, those deities that had taken up their quarters there, everywhere were struck with fear and felt their spirits depressed.
vrm.7.7 And agitated by the arrows of Narayana, with their senses bewildered by the blares of the conch, the broken Rakshasa forces made for Lanka.
vrm.7.7 Seeing Mali slain, Sumali and Malyavan, burning in grief, led precipitately towards Lanka along with their forces.
vrm.7.8 And seeing his elder brother driven by the wind produced by the wing s of that bird, Sumali along with his forces, made for Lanka.
vrm.7.8 And pushed of by the violence of the wind of Garura s wings, the Rakshasa Malyavan also, joined by his own forces, depated for Lanka, covered with shame.
vrm.7.8 And albeit inlated with pride, they, incapable of coping with Vishnu, leaving Lanka, went to the nether regions with their wives for dwelling there.
vrm.7.8 And that powerful Rakshasa, Sumali, afflicted with the fear of Vishnu, along with his sons and grand sons for a long time ranged the nether regions, and the lord of riches resided in Lanka.
vrm.7.11 Lanka is ours, but is now in the possession of your brother Kubera.
vrm.7.11 Lanka formerly belonged to the Rakshasas.
vrm.7.11 Knowing this and knowing what is Dharma, do thou leave Lanka without delay.
vrm.7.11 Rakshasas under my leadership shall now rule Lanka.
vrm.7.11 Thou ruleth this Lanka abounding in all resources, which was formerly ruled by the Rakshasas.
vrm.7.11 Knowing all this thou art unrighteously keeping Lanka under thy control.
vrm.7.11 It behevoth thee to leave Lanka, by knowing what is Dharma.
vrm.7.11 Dear Ravana! My father gave this Lanka to me, when it was lying vacant for a long time, after the Rakshasas left it.
vrm.7.11 Having grown with power and might, Ravana wants to take away Lanka from me.
vrm.7.11 O Son, Ravana always cherisheth this wicked desire to have Lanka for himself.
vrm.7.11 Do thou give up Lanka to Ravana.
vrm.7.11 Do thou leave Lanka with your followers and possessions without delay and with the objective of dwelling there, take up thy quarters there.
vrm.7.11 And Prahasta, going back, joyfully spoke unto the high souled Ten necked one, seated with his counsellors and his younger brothers, The city of Lanka isnow empty.
vrm.7.11 Thus addressed by Prahasta, the redoubtable Ten necked one entered the city of Lanka with his brothers and forces and followers.
vrm.7.11 And then even as the lord of the Devas ascends heaven, that foe of the immortals ascended Lanka well divided by highways, which had been forsaken by the lord of wealth.
vrm.7.12 Having thus wedded, that master Lanka s lord going back to that city, married his brothers.
vrm.7.12 And, O Raghava, Lanka was petriied at his voice ;and accordingly his sire himself kept his name, Meghanada.
vrm.7.13 Hearing of the doings of Dasagriva, and remembering his conduct chiming in with his race, the righteous lord of riches Vaisravana showing his fraternal afection, despatched a messenger to Lanka, seeking the welfare of Dasagriva.
vrm.7.13 And going to the city of Lanka, he presented himself before Vibhishana.
vrm.7.13 Having said this, Lanka s lord killed the emissary with his sword and made him over to the wicked Rakshasas for being eaten.
vrm.7.16 Thus accosted by Sambhu, Lanka s lord said of himself.
vrm.7.17 I am the lord of Lanka, O gentle lady, known as Dasagriva.
vrm.7.20 Thus addressed Lanka s lord, flaming in native energy, addressed Narada, laughing and saluting him, O thou that delightest in the sport of Devas and Gandharvas, and that takest pleasure in warfare, I am ready to go to the nethermost regions for the purpose of conquest.
vrm.7.22 Therefore do thou keep thy uplifted weapon of Lanka s shores.
vrm.7.23 And returning by the way by which he bad come, the Raksha, stationed in the welkin, proceeded towards Lanka.
vrm.7.24 Beholding the lord of Lanka, the foremost of Danavas, resembling the flaming fire, and hard to look at like the sun, laughed.
vrm.7.25 Therupon meditating for sometime the lord of Lanka went to the region of the sun and spent the night upon the picturesque summit of the mount Meru.
vrm.7.26 Having spent the night on the picturesque summit of the mount Meru and thinking for some time the powerful lord of Lanka went to the region of the Moon.
vrm.7.26 Thereat speedily regaining his sense, Ravana, a terror unto all people, the lord of Lanka, greatly assailed the person of Mandhata.
vrm.7.29 Heaing their lamentations thus and being honored by the night rangers that foremost of Rakshasas entered his city Lanka.
vrm.7.30 Thereupon that highly powerful lord of Rakshasas with his followers entered an excellent garden in Lanka named Nikumbhili.
vrm.7.30 Having seen him there and embraced him by his arms the lord of Lanka said "What are you after, O my child ?Tell me the truth.
vrm.7.30 Commanding them Indrajit preceded the army, Ravana went in the middle and Kumbhakarna was in the rear; the virtuous souled Vibhishana remained in Lanka, being engaged in piotis observances.
vrm.7.35 THE highly powerful Mahendra being thus defeated by Ravana s son, all the Devas, taking the patriarch Brahma before them, went to Lanka.
vrm.7.40 Having discerated the presiding goddess of Lanka and on beholding Sita there, he consoled her.
vrm.7.40 Being released from the Brahma weapon Hanuman remonstrated with Ravana, and reduced Lanka into ashes like unto fire burning down earth.
vrm.7.40 It is by the strength of the arms of that Vayu s son I have obtained Lanka, Sita, Lakshmana, Victory, kingdom and my friends.
vrm.7.46 Bringing her into Lanka Ravana protected her with care like his mother.
vrm.7.50 "I know, thou art cognizant of piety ;the citizens, thy councillors and thy brother Kubera also love thee; do thou therefore go and govern Lanka piously, O king; never cherish any vile intention ;the honest kings always enjoy the earth.
vrm.7.51 O gentle one, the great Rama hath conquered thee in Lanka: I permit thee, therefore to convey him.
vrm.7.53 Ravana did forcibly place Sita on her lap; how can then Rama enjoy delight in her company? Having taken her to the city of Lanka, Ravana did keep her in the Asoka forest and Sita was brought under the control of Rakshasis.
vrm.7.55 Indra, he king of the Devas, himself handed over the chaste Sita unto me in the island of Lanka.
vrm.7.110 Because Vaidehi formerly underwent a trial in the city of Lanka before the Devas I brought her home.
vrm.7.111 Formerly, in my absence, Janaki was once carried away into the city of Lanka, on the other side of the great ocean and I brought her back ;what wonder it is that I shall get her back from Patala ?O goddess Vasudha, do thou soon bring Sita in my view, or else, worked up with fire I shall give thee the fruits of thy negligence.
vrm.7.121 He then said to Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas: As long as people shall breathe, O Vibhishana, O highly powerful lord of Rakshasas, thou shalt preserve thy body in Lanka.
