vrm.5.35 O Seetha! There is a mountain called Malyavan, which is the best among mountains.
vrm.6.35 Hearing those word of Ravana whose maternal grandfather he was, the highly intelligent Rakshasa called Malyavan, answered him thus:
vrm.6.35 Having spoken thus, the mighty Malyavan, who was foremost in valour among the bravest warriors, being aware of what was passing in Ravana s mind, eyeing him, became silent.
vrm.6.36 The evil minded Ravana the ten faced monster, who had fallen under the sway of Death could not brook that beneficial advice tendered by Malyavan.
vrm.6.36 He had fallen under the sway of anger, knitting his brows on the face as he was, rolling his eyes in fury and spoke to Malyavan as follows
vrm.6.36 Beholding Ravana to be highly excited and speaking with such fury, Malyavan, abashed, did not reply.
vrm.6.36 Invoking blessings of victory to the king as courtesy demanded Malyavan took permission and went home.
vrm.6.111 Surrounded with Rakshasas, he came back for a while and thereupon, Vibhishana along with Malyavan the father of his own mother initiated the obsequies.
vrm.7.5 Malyavan s beautiful spouse was named Sundari.
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 And I also know his sons, of whom Malyavan is the eldest.
vrm.7.6 "And hearing of the activity of the Devas, the night ranger Malyavan addressed his heroic brothers, saying, The immortals and sages, going to Sankara, spake these words, desirous of our destruction, The terrific sons of Sukesa, pufed up, and swollen on account of their strength lowing from the boon, are crossing us at every step.
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 But fast bound with the noose of Death, the Rakshasas, proud of their strength, disregarding these omens, march on, and do not stay their course, Malyavan and Sumali possessed of prodigious strength, going before the Rakshasas, like flaming fires.
vrm.7.6 And even as the gods take refuge under Dhata, the night rangers take refuge under Malyavan resembling the mountain, Malyavan.
vrm.7.7 Seeing Mali slain, Sumali and Malyavan, burning in grief, led precipitately towards Lanka along with their forces.
vrm.7.8 "On that host being sore pressed at its back by Padmanabha, Malyavan turned back even as the ocean doth on meet ing with its shore.
vrm.7.8 Seeing Malyavan resembling the mountain, Malyavan, stay, the powerful younger brother of the sovereign of the Devas spoke unto him, I have removed the fear of the deities, afrighted at you, by promising that I will make root and branch work with the Rakshasas; and that same promise I am now fulilling.
vrm.7.8 And hurled by the hand of Malyavan, the dart resonant with bells, appeared graceful on Hari s breast like lightning embosomed in clouds.
vrm.7.8 Thereat drawing out the same dart, that one dear unto the Wielder of the Dart, having eyes resembling red lotuses, aiming at Malyavan, hurled it at him.
vrm.7.8 And on having his mail rent, Malyavan was utterly deprived of his senses; but apon reposing for a while, he again stood like a moveless hill.
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 All those exalted Rakshasas going under the name of Paulastya that had been headed by Sumali, Malyavan and Mali, were stronger than Ravana.
