vrm.2.95 Describing the varied beauties of the Mandakini River, Rama the bestower of delight to Raghu dynasty with his beloved consort as a companion, strolled in the lovely mountain of Chitrakuta which was shining like a piece of collieries.
vrm.2.100 Smelling the crown of his head, placing him on his lap, Rama who was born in Raghu dynasty embraced Bharata and with an absorbent mind, enquired of him as follows: "My darling! Where is our father, that you have come to the forest? He, being alive, you ought not have to come to the forest.
vrm.2.110 To Kakutsthas was born a son called Raghu, from whence spring Raghavas.
vrm.2.110 "From Raghu was born a renowned son named Pravriddha, known in the world under the names Purushadaka, Kalmashapada and Soudasa.

vrm.2.112 Rama, the augmentator of Raghu dynasty, being firm as a Himalayan rock in abiding in his own righteousness, greeted those men, in accord with their rank, the host of his preceptors, ministers, subjects and his brothers and bade farewell to all of them.
vrm.2.118 "After a very long time, this Rama born in Raghu dynasty with a great splendour possessing a true valour, along with his brother Lakshmana together with a sage Visvamitra, came to witness a sacrifice.
vrm.3.4 On seeing those two very dexterous scions of Kakutstha, and the best ones from Raghu dynasty, namely Rama and Lakshmana, grabbed and being carried off, Seetha screamed in a high pitched voice.
vrm.3.7 "Welcome to you Rama, best of Raghu dynasty and the best patron of truth, and when you presently caught this hermitage unprepared this has become a well lorded one.
vrm.3.9 To Rama, the scion of Raghu and her husband, who started out when permitted by Sage Suteekshna, Vaidehi spoke this with friendly words.
vrm.3.11 When the brother of Agastya said, you may go, quot Rama the legatee of Raghu journeyed on the pathways as directed by Suteekshna, and on observing those
vrm.3.12 That dexterous Rama on saying about that sun like radiant sage Agastya, he that descendent of Raghu fell on the feet of Agastya touching them reverentially.
vrm.3.13 From the beginning of creation the nature of women is this way only, oh scion of Raghu, they devote themselves to their men in good fortune, but they leave them off in ill fortune.
vrm.3.25 a Bruised and bedaubed with blood on all his limbs that Rama of Raghu s dynasty took shape of the sun enshrouded by cloudscapes at eventide.
vrm.3.26 b, a Rama, the legatee of Raghu, chopped off the head of Mahakapaala, with incalculable spates of arrows he eliminated Pramaathi, and filled the bulging eyes of Sthulaaksha with arrows by which Sthulaaksha is killed and fell down onto ground like a burly tree with its broad branches.
vrm.3.39 "I am well acquainted with his efficacy, and a war with him will be an unfair thing for you, for that Raghu s descendant can in fact kill either Emperor Bali or Namuchi.
vrm.3.43 a "Oh, Lakshmana, the descendent of Raghu, you stay here in all preparedness and guard Maithili steadfastly, whatever enterprise of ours is there that is founded in her.
vrm.3.44 Rama, the great resplendent scion of Raghu, on instructing his brother Lakshmana in that way securely fastened his sword with golden handle to his waist.
vrm.3.57 b, a Taking Lakshmana s left hand into his, Rama, the descendent of Raghu, alike a bewailer spoke this brusque speech that has a mellowly fruition in future.
vrm.3.59 Rama the descendent of Raghu, again asked Soumitri who strayed from the hermitage and whom his own anguish is distressing now, in the middle of path towards their hermitage.
vrm.3.61 Though that legatee of Raghu is desperate for seeing Seetha, though he is highly anguished and agonised, though he bewailed this way, that Rama has not found Janaka s daughter, Seetha.
vrm.3.63 When Soumitri of towering bravery is speaking this way, Rama, the enhancer of Raghu s lineage, gave no heed to it, and since he castaway his fortitude he again encountered an inexplicable anguish.
vrm.3.71 "Oh, Rama, the legatee of Raghu, when I am scripturally burnt by you in a trench, oh, great valiant Rama, for sure, I will tell of him, who can quiet fathom that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.73 "Oh, the legatee of Raghu, that woodland which in simile is like a godly forest, similar to the heavenly Nandana gardens, overspread with divers Birds is renowned as Matanga woodland and oh, Rama, you will take delight rejoicingly in that woodland.
vrm.3.74 Those two legatees of Raghu on making a sojourn on the mountaintop, they the Raghava s drew nigh of the moorland on the westward of
vrm.3.74 Oh, Rama the delight of Raghu s lineage.
vrm.3.74 Oh, best one from Raghu s, by the efficacy of the ascesis of my teachers these Altars of Fire are with incomparable irradiance, and even now they are irradiating all of the directions with solemnity.
vrm.3.74 On performing holy baths those sages have spread their jute cloths on those trees with their own doddering hands here at this place and oh, Raghu s legatee, those cloths did not dry even now by the touch of their hands.
vrm.4.6 Then Sugreeva who is gladdened again spoke to Rama of Raghu s dynasty, "My best minister and this servant of yours Hanuma informed me of the reason for which you have come to uninhabited forests along with your brother Lakshmana, and that while living in the forest, and when you and this courageous Lakshmana are not her alongside a Rakshasa stole your wife Maithili, the daughter of Janaka, wailing as she was.
vrm.4.11 Raghava", now this body is sleazy, without flesh, also rendered into a strawy condition, and oh, Raghu s delight, you too flipped it because you are now energetic.
vrm.4.13 While they are quickly going, Rama, the delight of Raghu s dynasty, saw there a clump of forest trees and he asked Sugreeva like this.
vrm.4.24 On hearing the anguished words of the younger brother of Vali, namely Sugreeva, the eyes of Rama, the best valiant one from Raghu s dynasty and the eliminator of valiant enemies, are moistened and he became perturbed for a moment.
vrm.4.27 Rama, the faultless one and the elder brother of Lakshmana, who is the delight of Raghu s dynasty, and who made an accord with Sugreeva regarding cessation of activity during rainy season, spoke these significant and timely words to his humble brother Lakshmana who is the enhancer of prosperity.
vrm.4.38 "Oh, Raghava, the legatee of Raghu, those vanara s with dreadful appearance, and who are the experts in permeating the impenetrable forests, woodlands and impassable mountains are coming.
vrm.4.40 "On searching the eastern quarter expertly, which quarter is cherished by no less than Mahendra and which is circuited by the grooves of forests, and on attaining Seetha, the dear wife of the one born in Raghu s dynasty, namely Rama, and on returning from that Far East, you all may livelong happily.
vrm.5.1 Such this ocean who wants to do a return service to the Raghu dynasty, is suitable for respect by you.
vrm.5.27 Rama" with strength equalling that of Lord Vishnu, born in Raghu s dynasty together with brother Lakshmana and with Seetha has been seen by me thus in the dream.
vrm.5.39 "O Seetha with a good waist! Rama, the delight of Raghu dynasty, killing Ravana together with his troops, will return to his town, duly taking you with him.
vrm.5.67 "Why even that Lakshmana, the annihilator of adversaries and the foremost of men born in Raghu dynasty is not saving me, by taking orders from Rama his brother?" "Wherefore those two competent brothers Rama and Lakshmana, with their splendour equal to that of air and fire, and excellent among men, even though they can conquer the Devas, are ignoring me?" "There is no doubt that I had done some big impure act, for which reason those two brothers Rama and Lakshmana, who torment the enemies, even though capable, are not paying attention to me.
vrm.6.1 By finding out Sita, the Raghu dynasty as well as myself and the valiant Lakshmana too, have been rightly saved today.
vrm.6.18 Is not Vibhishana the brother of cruel Ravana? Speaking thus to Rama, the best of Raghu dynasty, Sugreeva who knew the mode of expression, thereafter kept silent.
vrm.6.20 You are unaware how strong, high soled and irresistible even to Devas, is this Rama the excellent man of Raghu dynasty, who shall deprive you of your life.
vrm.6.22 Rama born in Raghu dynasty and the annihilator of enemies, did not retreat before that ocean, which swelled and crossed its limits.
vrm.6.40 That Sugreeva, the offspring of the Sun, who was endowed with a speed of the wind, having accomplished that feat there, increasing the military zeal of the foremost of Raghu dynasty, honoured by the Vanara leaders and delighted, rejoined the army.
vrm.6.41 Has my name ever reached your ears? Rama who is born in Raghu dynasty and who augements the joy of Kausalya speaks thus to you, O, ruthless Rakshasa! Come forth and enter into combat.
vrm.6.44 Being enraged in battle, Indrajit bursted out serpent like terrible arrows into all the limbs of Rama and Lakshmana who were born in Raghu dynasty.
vrm.6.45 How much less, you two! O, Descendant of Raghu! Having imprisoned you in this net work of arrows furnished with herons feathers, I, yielding myself up to the violence of my wrath, am about to dispatch you to the region of Yama the Lord of Death.
vrm.6.79 Then, seeing Makaraksha rushing towards him, that Rama the delight of Raghu dynasty, while smiling, fitted to his bow, a mystic missile presided over by fire.
vrm.6.91 Having thus consoled Lakshmana and having embraced him, that Rama who was born in Raghu dynansty, was duly delighted and by calling Sushena, spoke to him the following words: "O highly intelligent one! You attend upon this wounded Lakshmana, who is fond of frinds, so that he will become perfectly well in health.
vrm.6.95 A clamour was heard, saying "There comes the ruler of Rakshasas, the abductor of Seetha, the destroyer of Brahmanas, the enemy of Gods, notorious for his bad conduct, accompanied by his canopy and pair of whisks, to fight with Rama, the foremost among the Raghu dynasty.
vrm.6.99 Seeing the disappointed Vanaras and Ravana advancing, the mighty Rama who was endowed with a great splendour and accompanied by Lakshmana who were born in Raghu dynasty, then pleasingly seized his bow at the middle.
vrm.6.102 Seeing that blazing spear of terrible appearance, the valiant Rama who was born in Raghu dynasty, having stretched his bow, released the arrows.
vrm.6.107 Thereupon, the great armed Rama who augmented the fame of the kings born in Raghu dynasty, stretching with anger, the serpent like arrow with his bow, chopped off the glorious head of Ravana, which was graced with blazing ear rings.
vrm.6.117 Hearing the words of those guardians of the world, and the lords of creation, Rama, who was born in Raghu dynasty and the foremost one among protectors of righteousness, spoke to those as follows: "I think of myself to be a human being, by name Rama, the son of Dasaratha.
vrm.6.118 Saying thus and getting reunited with her beloved Seetha, the victorious and highly illustrious Rama, a scion of Raghu dynasty, who was endowed with a great strength and deserved happiness and was being glorified by his exploits, performed by his own self, experienced joy.
vrm.6.119 Having instructed thus to his sons and Seetha, the King Dasaratha who was born in Raghu dynasty went to the abode of Indra, by an aerial car.
vrm.6.123 Casting his look on all sides, Rama, the delight of Raghu dynasty, then spoke to Seetha, who had a moon like face as follows:
vrm.6.125 Looking at Ayodhya, Rama, a scion of Raghu dynasty, for his part, who wished to do a kindly act and who was quick in exhibiting prowess, contemplated thereupon to do a kindly act.
vrm.6.125 Thereupon, Bharata who was born in Raghu dynasty, got up from the swoon within a while and regaining his consciousness, spoke the following words to Hanuma, who spoke pleasant tidings to him.
vrm.6.126 Rama, the scion of Raghu dynasty, personally killed Kumbhakarna and Ravana.
vrm.7.1 And having, according to their rank, seated themselves on gorgeous and superb seals of Kusa or deer skins embroidered with gold, those foremost of sages those mighty saints,versed in the Vedas, along with their disciples and leaders,having previously been asked as to their welfare, addressed Rama,saying, "O son of Raghu.
vrm.7.5 O son of Raghu, she had three daughters, resembling Sri, Hri, and Kirti in splendour.
vrm.7.24 Hearing this the highlypowerful Raksha proceeded, laughing, O descendant of Raghu, where that celestial kundala was.
vrm.7.38 Observe therefore, O descendant of Raghu, there is a mightier man than the mighty ;therefore, one, desirous of his own well being, should not disregard another.
vrm.7.41 Hearing the whole history, Rama, the descendant of Raghu, said to Agastya "O Reverend Sir, Riksharaja is the name of the father of Vali and Sugriva but thou hast not told me the name of their mother.
vrm.7.47 O foremost among the descendant of Raghu, though are the enhancer of the fame of thy race.
vrm.7.47 Hearing these delightful adorations of the eulogists, that formost one amongst the race of Raghu, woke up with a pleasent mind.
vrm.7.50 Thereupon the highly effulgent Rama, the descendant of Raghu said to Sugriva :"O gentle one, proceeding to the city of Kishkindha, hard to be got at by the Devas and Asuras, do thou reign there undisturbed with thy councillors.
vrm.7.50 O foremost of men, O descendant of Raghu, may the Apsaras make me always hear of thy themes.
vrm.7.50 Thereupon the Rakshasas, bears, Vanaras, having bowed unto Rama, the glory of the Raghu family and with their eyes full of tears consequent upon his separation, went away to the countries from which they had hailed.
vrm.7.51 But my earnest desire is that thou shouldst take Rama, the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.56 Thereupon Sita said to Lakshmana, the enhancer of prosperity "O descendent of Raghu, I behold many inauspicious omens.
vrm.7.71 O descendant of Raghu, I was at that time stricken with hunger, and struck it for its vicious conduct.
vrm.7.75 Having thus bound himself with that promise to the asetics of fierce energy, Raghu s son along with his brothers spoke: "What hero shall slay Lavana? Do you decide this.
vrm.7.75 And Satrughna, saluting the king represented:"The mighty armed second son of Raghu hath already achieved a grand work: he formerly governed Ayodhya empty of the noble one, bearing in his heart the grief connected with his return.
vrm.7.75 Having suffered such misery, Raghu s son should not be suffered to undergo trouble, while, O king I his servant is by.
vrm.7.76 Do thou, O descendant of Raghu, so order that sin may not be mine in having disobeyed thy mandate.
vrm.7.76 Thus addressed by the heroic and high souled Satrughna, Rama, delighted, spoke unto Bharata nad Lakshmana, "Do you carefully provide the things ecessary for the coronation :this very day shall I install that foremost of men, the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.76 With this, O son of Raghu, thou, O splacid one, wilt slay Lavana.
vrm.7.77 Having thus depatched before a huge army consisting of selected elephants and horses, Satrughna, the enhancer of the glory of Raghu s race, took farewell from Rama.
vrm.7.78 O gentle one, this hermitage belongs the descendants of the Raghu race.
vrm.7.78 O descendant of Raghu, the sacrificial ground of which thou hast asked me, longs to the king Saudasa.
vrm.7.79 Having remained there for the night and talked with those ascetics the high souled, heroic Raghu prince Satrughna was greatly delighted.
vrm.7.80 Thereupon when the night set in Satrughna accosted Bhrigu s son Chavanya saying, "O Brahman, how powerful is Lavana ?And what is the strength of his dart ?What persons before had been destroyed by this dart in conflict ?"Hearing the words of the high souled descendant of Raghu, Satrughna, the highly effulgent Chavanya replied saying
vrm.7.80 O descendant of Raghu, Lavana hath accomplished many works by this dart; amongst them, hear, what Mandhata, born in the race of Ikshwaku, did.
vrm.7.82 Beholding the welkin covered by the celestials, Satrughna, the descendant of Raghu, emitting leonine roars, again and again looked towards Lavana.
vrm.7.82 And piercing his heat that arrow entered speedily into Rasatala And having entered Rasatala tha arrow, honored by the Devas, again came to the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.82 Having removed the fear of the three worlds with one shaft, that heroic Raghu, Satrughna younger brother of Lakshmana, holding excellent bow and arrow, appeared like the Sun of thousand rays removing darkness.
vrm.7.83 The Devas, with a delighted heart, said to the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.83 Thereupon having set up the city resembling the region of the Devas and filled with various men, the king Satrughna, the enhancer of Raghu s race, determined on beholding Rama s feet.
vrm.7.84 And having counted seven halting stations on his way, the highly illustrious descendant of Raghu Satrughna, arrived at the hermitage of Valmiki.
vrm.7.84 Having thus addressed the soldiers and bowed onto the ascetic, Satrughna, the desendant of Raghu, entered his own quarter.
vrm.7.85 The night being over, he first went through the morning rites and then with folded hands addressed the foremost of ascetics, Valmiki, saying "O illustrious Sir, I am anxious to see Rama, the enhancer of the delight of the Raghu race.
vrm.7.85 O descendant of Raghu, twelve years have passed away without thee do not wish to live any longer separated from thee.
vrm.7.86 Having bade adieu unto Satrughna, Rama, the descendant of Raghu, was greatly delighted by governing his subjects piously in the company of Bharata and Lakshmana.
vrm.7.87 And hearing this, O descendant of Raghu, do thou settle what hou thinkest proper.
vrm.7.89 O descendant of Raghu, being slain by thee this Sudra hath been able to attain to the abode of the celestials.
vrm.7.89 Saying so be it to the words of the Devas that descendant of Raghu ascended his golden car Pushpaka, And having ascended spacious cars the Devas proceeded to the hermitage of Agastya born of a Kumbha.
vrm.7.90 O Rama, the foremost of Raghu s race, like unto the moon renouncing the summit of the Sumeru mount that celestial wight got down from the seat in the car and engaged in devouring the dead body, and having taken enough flesh he got down into waters and duly performed ablution.
vrm.7.92 O descendant of Raghu, the youngest of all those sons became stupid and ignorant and did not respect his elder brothers.
vrm.7.95 O descendant of Raghu, thou art the purifier of all creatures.
vrm.7.99 O descendant of Raghu, such is the power of a horse sacrifice.
vrm.7.100 Hearing the words of Lakshmana and smiling, the highly effulgent descendant of Raghu, Rama, skilled in the art of speech, replied Lakshmana", O foremost of men, thou hast truly related the story of Vritra s destruction and the fruits of horse sacrifice.
vrm.7.100 O descendant of Raghu, being terrified, the generous Devas, the rich Daityas, the highly powerful Nagas, the irrepressible Rakshasas, Gandharvas and Yakshas used to adore him perpetually.
vrm.7.101 O son of Raghu, on beholding him Ila was greatly surprised, and with her female companions began to agitate waters.
vrm.7.109 I tell you the truth, O Rama, that these irrepressible twin brothers are your sons, O descendant of Raghu, I am the tenth son of Pracheta, so, far from speaking untruth it does not even spring up in my mind.
vrm.7.109 O descendant of Raghu, finding Sita pure in mind and five elements of body I took her near the spring in the forest.
vrm.7.111 O descendant of Raghu, this is not wothy of being heard by any but those who art the foremost of the royal saints.
vrm.7.121 Thereupon understanding the firm resolution of Satrughna, the descendant of Raghu agreed.
vrm.7.123 Having thus gone for more than a half Yojana, the descendant of Raghu espied Sarayu of holy waters flowing towards the west.
