vrm.5.6 That great Hanuma in the same way leapt for the house of Mahodara and also that of Virupaksha, that of Viddutjihva.
vrm.6.9 Then, Nikumbha, Rabhasa, the exceedingly strong Surya satru, Suptaghna, Yajakopa, Mahaparshva and Mahodara, the unconquerable Rakshasas Agniketu and Rasmiketu, then the powerful son of Ravana named Indrajit endowed with great energy, Prahasta and Virupaksha, Vajradamshtra who was extraordinarily strong, Dhumarksha and Atikaya and the Rakshasa by name Durmukha, carrying iron clubs, sharp edged spears, spikes, darts, javelins and axes, bows with excellent arrows and swords shining like a vast expanse of water, and who were all extremely enraged, and flaming as it were with glory, those Rakshasas rose up and spoke to Ravana as follows.
vrm.6.14 O, king! Either Kumbhakarna or Indrajit and either Mahaparshva or Mahodara and either Nikumbha or Kumbha or even Atikaya cannot withstand Rama in battle.
vrm.6.14 When such is the case, how can we have fear from Rama, the son of a human king at any time in battle? Vibhishana who desired the welfare of the king and who possessed a stable mind in virtue wealth and pleasure, after hearing the inimical words of Prahasta, spoke highly meaningful words as follows: O, Prahasta! The series of actions king or Mahodara as also yourself and Kumbhakarna propose to take against Rama are impossible of being accomplished, any more than going to heaven by wicked minded persons.
vrm.6.19 O, Rama! The glorious Indrajit, having propitiated the God of Fire, strikes his enemy while remaining invisible in the battle field with a huge battle array on both sides Mahodara and Mahaparshva along with a Rakshasa called Akampana who are equal to the guardians of the world in battle they are the commanders of his army.
vrm.6.29 The Rakshasa Ravana spoke to Mahodara who was standing nearby as follows: Bring me the spies here quickly.
vrm.6.29 Hearing those words, Mahodara immediately ordered for the spies.
vrm.6.37 Mahaparshva and Mahodara of mighty prowess are at the southern gate.
vrm.6.37 "At the southern gate, Angada the son of Vali, surrounded by his mighty army, should oppose Mahaparshva and Mahodara.
vrm.6.44 The unconquerable Yagnashatru, Mahaparshva, Mahodara, the giant bodied Vajradamshtra, both Shuka and Sarana all those six having been beaten by Rama on their vital organs with a flood of his arrows, retreated from the battle and somehow survived for the rest of their life.
vrm.6.59 He who, with tawny eyes resembling the dawn, riding an Elephant with its bells jangling, who is shouting aloud, he is that strong Rakshasa of the highest peculiarity is called Mahodara.
vrm.6.60 Hearing these haughty from that Rakshasa, whose anger increased his ferocity, Mahodara the chief of warriors of Rakshasas, having offered obeisance with joined palms, spoke the following words: "O, the mighty armed! When you have listened to the words of Ravana and considered the advantages and disadvantages of the matter, even afterwards you can conquer the enemies in battle.
vrm.6.60 Hearing the words of Mahodara, the might Kumbhakarna of great valour prepared to depart, surrounded by Rakshasas.
vrm.6.64 Hearing those words spoken by the mighty Kumbhakarna of colossal body and large arms, Mahodara spoke as follows: "O Kumbhakarna! Though born in a good race, you are audacious, having the perception of an ordinary man as also arrogant.
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 Hearing the words of Mahodara, Kumbhakarna rebuked him and then spoke to his brother, Ravana, the chief of Rakshasas as follows: "By annihilation of that evil minded Rama, I will wipe off your terrifc fear today.
vrm.6.65 "O Mahodara! Your words may be agreeable to those kings who are confused, who fancy themselves as the learned, and who themselves are stupid.
vrm.6.65 Hearing the words of the intellectual Kumbhakarna, Ravana the king of Rakshasas, bursting into laughter, replied as follows: "O dear brother, well versed in the art of war fare! This Mahodara is frightened of Rama.
vrm.6.68 Hearing that Kumbhakarna, their brother was killed by Rama, who was unwary in his actions, Mahodara and Mahaparshva step brothers of Kumbhakarna were overcome with grief.
vrm.6.69 For the defense of his sons, Ravana sent Yuddhonmatta and Matta better known as Mahodara and Mahaparshva, his brothers to the battle.
vrm.6.69 Trishira, Atikaya, Devantaka, Narantaka, Mahodara and Mahaparshva, under the clout of destiny set out for the battle.
vrm.6.69 Thereupon, Mahodara mounted an Elephant called Sudarshana, like unto a dark cloud and born in Airavata race.
vrm.6.69 That Mahodara, adorned with quivers, endowed with all types of armoury and mounting the Elephant, shone like the sun on the peak of Ashtachala mountain.
vrm.6.70 Seeing Narantaka dying, Devantaka, Trishira and Mahodara the son of Pulastya the foremost of Rakshasas, wept.
vrm.6.70 Mounting an excellent Elephant, resembling a cloud, Mahodara hurrily attacked Angada of great energy.
vrm.6.70 That Mahodara broke those trees with the tip of his club.
vrm.6.70 Marching ahead quickly towards Angada on an Elephant, the enraged Mahodara struck on his chest with javelins looking like thunderbolts.
vrm.6.70 Again mounting an Elephant resembling a mountain, as the sun mounting Mandara Mountain, that enraged Mahodara on his part, caused rain of arrows to fall quickly on Neela, like rumbling cloud with a circle of lightning, showers rain on a mountain.
vrm.6.70 Thus the mighty Mahodara then made his loosened limbs paralyzed.
vrm.6.70 After regaining consciousness, Neela uplifted a mountain consisting of a number of trees and then jumping up with a great speed, struck with it on the head of Mahodara.
vrm.6.70 That Mahodara, then shattered by the fall of that mountain and crushed by that large Elephant too, lost his life and fell down on the earth like a mountain struck by a thunderbolt.
vrm.6.70 Seeing Mahodara his young paternal uncle killed.
vrm.6.70 Seeing Trishira, Mahodara and the invincible Devantaka killed, Matta Mahaparshva was enraged with indignation.
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.6.95 Mahodara, Mahaparshva and Virupaksha, the Rakshasa as follows: "Tell the armies asking them to start immediately, as per my command.
vrm.6.95 Mahodara, Mahaparshva and Virupaksha, the Rakshasas as follows: Today", I will send Rama and Lakshmana to the abode of Death, with my arrows looking similar to the sun at the time of dissolution of the Universe.
vrm.6.95 Mahaparshva and Mahodara as also Virupaksha, who was difficult to overpower, as order by Ravana, then ascended their chariots.
vrm.6.97 He spoke to Mahodara, the annihilator of enemies, standing beside him as follows: "O the long armed! At this juncture, my hope for victory is centered in you.
vrm.6.97 Hearing the words of Ravana, Mahodara the chief of Rakshasas saying "So it be, penetrated into the army of enemies, as a moth rushed into a flame.
vrm.6.97 In that great battle, the highly enraged Mahodara, with his arrows decked in gold, chopped off the hands, feet and thighs of Vanaras.
vrm.6.97 Seeing the large army of Vanaras defeated in the battle, Sugreeva rushed towards Mahodara who was immediately close to him.
vrm.6.97 Seeing that rock falling suddenly, Mahodara, then unagitated, tore it with his arrows, though it was difficult to approach.
vrm.6.97 Filled with rage on seeing that rock broken and uprooting a Sala tree, Sugreeva hurled it at his enemy and Mahodara chopped it off into many pieces.
vrm.6.97 The valiant Mahodara, who was the tormentator of hostile forces, lacerated Sugreeva with his arrows.
vrm.6.97 Swinging that flashing iron rod and showing it to him, Sugreeva killed the excellent Horses of Mahodara with that iron rod of terrible speed.
vrm.6.97 Jumping down from that huge chariot, whose Horses had been killed, that valiant Mahodara the Rakshasa, thereupon seized hold of a mace with anger.
vrm.6.97 Mahodara the Rakshasa was angry with Sugreeva and thereupon hurled his blazing mace, which shone like the sun, on Sugreeva.
vrm.6.97 Mahodara too hurled another mace on him.
vrm.6.97 Then the highly fast Mahodara the Rakshasa took hold of a sword and a shield, lying not very far.
vrm.6.97 That valiant and evil minded Mahodara, who was boasting of his own prowess, let fall with very high speed, that sword on the heavy shield of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.97 Even while Mahodara was extracting his sword which had got struck in the shield, Sugreeva severed with his own sword, Mahodara s head, which was adorned with ear rings and helmet.
vrm.6.97 While Mahodara, with his head chopped off, was falling on the ground, Ravana s army, on seeing it, could no longer be seen on the battle field.
vrm.6.97 Having killed Mahodara, Sugreeva made a rejoicing roar with his Vanaras.
vrm.6.97 Having thrown down to the ground that Mahodara, looking like a part of a huge mountain lying shattered the invincible Sugreeva shone in glory in the battle field like the sun shines with its rays.
vrm.6.98 Seeing Mahodara killed by Sugreeva, the mighty Mahaparshva for his part with his red blood eyes through anger, forthwith stirred up the terrific army of Angada with his arrows.
vrm.6.99 Seeing Mahodara and Mahaparshva the Rakshasas having been killed, and that valiant and mighty Virupaksha struck down in that great battle, a tremendous anger took possession of Ravana.
vrm.6.123 Virupaksha, who was disagreeable to the sight, Mahaparshva, Mahodara, Akampana, Trishiras, Atikaya Devantaka, Narantaka and other mighty Rakshasas were also killed here.
vrm.7.1 By good fortune it is that those night rangers, Prahasta, and Vikata, and Virupaksha, and Mahodara, and the unconquerable Akampana, have all been slain by thee.
vrm.7.1 Hearing the speech of the ascetics of sacred souls, Rama, coming under the influence of a mighty wonder, said with joined hands, "Ye worshipful ones wherefore, passing by those exceedingly powerful ones Kumbhakarna and the night ranger, Ravana do ye praise Ravana s son ?Wherefore, passing by Mahodara, and Prahasta, and the Rakshasa Virupaksha and Matta, and Unmatta, and the irrepressible Devantaka and Narantaka redoubtable heroes all do ye extoll Ravana s son ?And wherefore, passing by Atikaya and Trisiras and Dhumraksha, that night ranger all endowed with exceeding prowess, do ye extoll Ravana s son ?What was his prowess ?And what his strength ?And what his might ?And by virtue of what cause did he surpass Ravana ?If I can well hear the same, do ye tell it me.
vrm.7.11 He, with his ministers, Maricha, Prahasta, Virupaksha, Mahodara and other mighty Rakshasas came to see Ravana.
vrm.7.14 Accompanied by his six counsellors Mahodara and Prahasta, Maricha, Suka and Sarana, and the heroic Dhumraksha eager for encounter the graceful Ravana, elated with his strength sallied out, as if consuming all creatures with his wrath.
vrm.7.14 And as the wind scattereth clouds, the small remnant of Yaksha army was scattered by the redoubtable councillors of Ravana Mahodara, Suka, etc.
vrm.7.15 And a thousand of the Yakshas were slain by Prahasta in the conflict; and another thousand of capable warriors were slain by Mahodara.
vrm.7.23 And thet Mahodara, eneraged on seeing the king sore pressed, casting of fear, and wrought up with rage, began to go around, eager for fight.
vrm.7.23 And smit with his mace by Mahodara, Varuna s sons coursing at will and resembling the wind in velocity, dropped down to the ground.
vrm.7.23 And having slain those warriors and also those horses of Varuna s sons Mahodara seeing them lying down deprived of their cars swiftly sent up a tremendous cheer.
vrm.7.23 And destroyed by Mahodara, their cars and horses together with their foremost charioteers, lay low on the earth.
vrm.7.23 And having stretched their bows they pierced Mahodara, and then, all together they greatly angered prevented Ravana.
vrm.7.26 Thereupon the highly powerful king Mandhata, with sharpened shafts, assailed Prahasta, Suka, Sarana, Mahodara, Virupaksha, Akampana and other foremost heroes.
vrm.7.32 And encircled by Maricha, Prahasta, Mahaparshva, Mahodara, Akampana, Nikumbha, Suka, Sarana, Sanghrada, Dhumaketu, Mahadangstra, Gathodara, Jambumali, Mahahrada, Virupaksha, Suptaghna, Yajnakopa, Durmukha, Khara, Trisira, Karaveeraksha, Suryashatru Mahakaya, Atikaya, Devantaka, Narantaka, all those gifted with great prowess, there entered the battle field, the highly powerful Sumalin, Ravana s maternal grandfather.
vrm.7.36 Hearing the words of Ravana, Prahasta, Suka, Sarana, Mahodara, Dhrumakshya and other councillors descended into the waters of Narmada.
vrm.7.37 And the lord of Rakshasas proceeded against Arjuna with Mahodara, Mahaparshva, Dhrumakshya, Suka and Sarana.
vrm.7.37 Beholding Prahasta fallen, Maricha, Suka, Sarana, Mahodara and Dhrumakshya led away from the battle field.
