vrm.5.61 They reached, that Madhuvana by name, the garden abounded with honey, which was protected grove, unapproachable for all and looking fascinated
vrm.5.61 Then, seeing that large Madhuvana, the garden abounded in honey, those Vanaras, whose colour was as yellow as honey, were delighted and solicited Angada the prince for permission to taste the honey.
vrm.5.62 Reverencing Angada the foremost among the Vanaras, all the Vanaras rushed towards Madhuvana, the grove abounding in honey, like the rush of a river towards a tree.
vrm.5.62 Because Hanuma had seen Seetha and others had heard of her and because of the grant of permission from Angada, all those gifted Vanaras entered Madhuvana the grove, overpowered the guards with their prowess, drank honey and the partook juicy fruits there.
vrm.5.62 The honey keepers, who were there as messengers of Dadhimukha in that Madhuvana, were warded off by the terrific Vanaras and they fled to different directions.
vrm.5.62 Dragged by their knees and tossed up in the air by the Vanaras, those honey keepers were very much depressed, went to Dadhimukha and complained as follows: "The Vanaras, as permitted by Hanuma, violently destroyed Madhuvana.
vrm.5.62 Hearing that Madhuvana was damaged, Dadhimukha, the grove protector there was enraged and thereafter consoled those Vanaras as follows:
vrm.5.62 Grasping a tree, Dadhimukha speedily took up his position in the middle of those Vanaras in Madhuvana.
vrm.5.62 "This Madhuvana is indeed cherished by our high souled king, Sugreeva and it derived from his father and grand father.
vrm.5.63 Thus inspired by the high souled Sugreeva with confidence, that highly intelligent Dadhimukha, rising up, spoke the following words: "O king! Madhuvana was indeed not set free previously at any time by Riksharajas, your father, or by you, or by even Vali.
vrm.5.63 That Madhuvana has been consumed away by the Vanaras.
vrm.5.63 "By seeing the manner in which these returned Vanaras overpowered, destroyed and behaved towards Madhuvana, we can deduce that the Vanaras would not have indulged in such an exploit, had they not accomplished my purpose.
vrm.5.63 "When those Vanaras have overpowered Madhuvana, then it means that our task has been accomplished by the Vanaras.
vrm.5.63 "It is so reported that Madhuvana has been destroyed by the heroes with Angada as the chief and the garden guards who were together preventing the damage, were beaten up with knees.
vrm.5.63 Hearing those words of Dadhimukha, Sugreeva with a charming neck, was very much pleased and further spoke to Dadhimukha, the guardian of the grove as follows: "I am happy that Madhuvana has been enjoyed by those Vanaras, who have accomplished their act.
vrm.5.64 That Dadhimukha, after entering Madhuvana, saw all the chiefs of Vanaras, who were free from their intoxication, having passed off the honey and who were inwardly excited.
vrm.5.64 Even after hearing of Madhuvana having been attacked, he did not develop any anger.
vrm.7.75 His food is every creature specially ascetics ;his manner of life is regulated by ferocity and his constant home is Madhuvana.
vrm.7.77 O Satrughna, having sent therefore a huge and well contented army do thou proceed torwards to Madhuvana.
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.
