vrm.7.9 And then the Raksha addressed his daughter, named Kaikasi, saying, O daughter, the time hath come when I should give thee away.
vrm.7.9 Having been thus accosted, the girl, O Rama, after a length of time brought forth a very terrible and hideous ofspring having the form of a Raksha, having ten necks, furnished with large teeth, and resembling a heap of collyrium, with coppery lips, twenty arms, huge faces, and flaming hair.
vrm.7.10 Indeed, I deem as straw creatures such as men etc Thus accosted by the Raksha the Ten necked one that righteous souled one, the Great father, along with the Devas, said, O foremost of Rakshasas, what thou sayest shall come to pass.
vrm.7.10 As soon as the Ten necked Raksha had spoken thus, the heads that had been offered as sacrifices into the fire, rose up again.
vrm.7.11 lord of riches, thou ought not to enter into hostilities with that Raksha.
vrm.7.12 And having given her away, the Raksha was wandeing about for the purpose of hunting, when, Rama, he happened to see Diti s son, named Maya.
vrm.7.12 But, my child, how can I know thee now ?Who art thou? Thus addressed, the Raksha humbly said, Ten necked by name, I am the son of the ascetic, Paulastya, who was born as the third son of Brahma.
vrm.7.14 And hearing that wicked minded lord of Rakshasas, breathing high spirits, had arrived at the mount in company with his counsellors, the Yakshas could not stay before that Raksha, and knowing This is the king s brother, went to where the lord of riches was.
vrm.7.14 And witnessing the prowess of the Raksha, all began to flee ;and then they afflicted with affright, fatigued, and with pale faces, entered into rivers and caves, leaving their arms behind.
vrm.7.16 Thereat, growing enraged, the reverend Nandi Sankara s other body spoke unto that Raksha Dasagriva present there; As O Dasanana, deriding me for my monkey like form, thou hast indulged in a laughter resembling the bursting of thunder, so Vanaras endowed with prowess, and possessed of my form and energy shall be born for compassing the destruction, of thy race.
vrm.7.16 And thereat his arms, resembling blocks of stone felt the shock and then there the councilors of that Raksha were struck with amaze.
vrm.7.16 And the Raksha, from wrath and the pain felt in his arms, set up a shout that shook the entire triune world.
vrm.7.16 Thus accosted by his councillors, the Ten faced one, bowing down to him having the bull for his standard, began to hymn him with various Soma hymns; and the Raksha passed away a good thousand years in lamentations.
vrm.7.16 And opposed at places, by the heroic Kshatriyas endowed with energy and irrepressible in fight, who refused submission, he exterminated them along with their retainers; while other men of wisdom, knowing the Raksha to be invincible, said unto the Rakshasa elated with strength, We have been conquered?"
vrm.7.17 Therefore, O Raksha, I will enter into fire in thy very presence.
vrm.7.17 This one named Vedavati was born in the Krita age; and in the Treta age, for compassing the destruction of that Raksha, she was born in the Maithila line of the high souled Janaka.
vrm.7.18 And seeing that Raksha invincible by reasoned the boon he had received, the Devas, apprehensive of being worsted by him, assumed the forms of beasts.
vrm.7.19 for conquering Ravana, sallied forth ready for bringing about the destruction of the Raksha, ten thousand elephants, a Niyuta horse, and many thousands of cars and infantry, O best of men ;and, that host consisting of infantry and cars, marched for encounter, covering up the earth.
vrm.7.19 And thereat the Raksha, laughing, spoke unto that Ikshwaku, lord of the earth, What is this that thou hast gathered as the fruit of thy encounter with me.
vrm.7.21 In the meanwhile they saw the Raksha s car approach from afar, flaming and like unto the ray furnished one risen.
vrm.7.21 And on being liberated by that Raksha the ten necked one, those creatures in a moment began to enjoy their release, that had come to them without thought or suspense.
vrm.7.22 But as I restrain not slay this one who hath obtained a boon, what then shall I do now in the field ?Therefore shall I disappear from the sight of this Raksha.
vrm.7.23 And then the Raksha entered the regeon of waters the abode of Daityas and Nagas, well protected by Varuna.
vrm.7.23 And returning by the way by which he bad come, the Raksha, stationed in the welkin, proceeded towards Lanka.
vrm.7.24 Hearing this the highlypowerful Raksha proceeded, laughing, O descendant of Raghu, where that celestial kundala was.
vrm.7.24 Regaining his sense that Raksha rose up in a moment and lowered his head in shame.
vrm.7.29 Oh !highly powerful is this Raksha and he is mad after devising the means of destruction.
vrm.7.31 Having said this, the Raksha ravished her.
vrm.7.75 Hearing this, Raghava spoke to the mighty ascetics :"I will slay that Raksha.
