vrm.7.5 They were named Malyavanta, Sumali, and Mali.
vrm.7.5 Mali had for wife a graceful Gandharvi, having eyes resembling lotus petals, of a lovely look, and like unto the most magniicent Yakshi of them all.
vrm.7.5 These night rangers sons unto Mali were the courtiers of Vibhishana.
vrm.7.6 I am Vishnu, I am Rudra, I am the king of the Devas, I am Yama, I am Varuna, I am the Moon, I am the Sun, flattering themselves in this fashion, Mali and Sumali and the Rakshasa Malyavan as well as those going before them, are annoying the gods, breathing exhilaration of martial spirits.
vrm.7.6 Thereat Sumali and Mali, hearing the words of Malyavan, said unto their eldest brother, like the Aswins addressing Vasava, We have studied, performed sacrifices, practised charity, and obtained riches ;and attaining long health and long life, we have established sterling righteousness in our path.
vrm.7.6 And under the command of Mali, that host of Rakshasas, roaring like mighty clouds,inspired with the desire of victory, went to the celestial regions.
vrm.7.7 And on Sumali s car being drawn at random by his steeds, Mali, taking his bow and equipped therewith, dated at Vishnu s car and assailed that mighty armed one as he was descending on the field of fight.
vrm.7.7 And like birds entering the Krauncha, the arrows discharged from Mali s bow, graced with gold, hit Hari and entered into his body.
vrm.7.7 And thereat, as a person holding his senses under subjection is not thrown out of his mental balance, Vishnu, assailed in that encounter with thousands of arrows shot by Mali, was not disturbed ever so little.
vrm.7.7 twanging his bow string, showered vollies of shafts on Mali.
vrm.7.7 And getting at Mali s body, the arrows furnished with the luminousness of lightning, drink his blood, like unto serpents drinking nectar.
vrm.7.7 And baling Mali, the holder of the conch, discus, and mace, brought down Mali s crown, standard, bow and steeds.
vrm.7.7 On being severely struck by Mali with his mace, Garura, writhing in torments, moved the god away from the field of battle.
vrm.7.7 On the god having been removed from the field by Mali as well as Garura, there arose a mighty din of Rakshas roaring in chorus.
vrm.7.7 And hearing the cheers of the Rakshas, Indra s younger brother, the reverend Hari, sitting awry on that lord of birds, albeit moved of from the scene of conflict, waxing enraged, from a desire of slaying Mali hurled his disc at him.
vrm.7.7 And thereat the disc, possessed of the splendour of the solar disc, and resembling the wheelf itself of Kala, flooding all the heavens with radiance, brought down Mali s head to the ground.
vrm.7.7 Seeing Mali slain, Sumali and Malyavan, burning in grief, led precipitately towards Lanka along with their forces.
vrm.7.8 All those exalted Rakshasas going under the name of Paulastya that had been headed by Sumali, Malyavan and Mali, were stronger than Ravana.
