vrm.1.1 "That lotus eyed Rama on his entering the vast of Dandaka forest eliminated the Rakshasa Viraadha, and indeed descried Sage Sharabhanga, also even Sage Suteekshna, also Sage Agastya and likewise Sage Agastya s brother.
vrm.1.1 "Then in a combat Rama eliminated all the fourteen Rakshasas who rebelliously came at him in the first round of combat incited by the provokes of Shuurpanakha, and then in second round Rama eliminated Rakshasa chiefs called Khara, Trishira, Duushana, who are none but the cousins of Shuurpanakha and Ravana, together with all of their hench Rakshasas.
vrm.1.1 b, a "Then on hearing the slaughter of his cousins, Ravana is convulsed in anger and sought the help of a Rakshasa named Maricha.
vrm.1.1 Rama" then cremated that eagle Jatayu in that anguish, and while searching for Seetha in forest, he indeed saw a Rakshasa named Kabandha, who is misshapen in his look and monstrous to look to.
vrm.1.1 b, "That Rama whose arms are highly powerful has eliminated and cremated that Rakshasa Kabandha, and Kabandha while going heavenward told Rama, oh, Raghava, proceed to the ascetic lady of right conduct and an expert in rightness, namely Shabari.
vrm.1.1 b, a Sugreeva" always remained doubtful about the powers of Raghava and by reason of confiding in Raghava s prowess for himself, and by reason of making Raghava to confide in the powers of Vali, Sugreeva has shown him the massive remains of Rakshasa Dundubhi, which is similar to a great mountain.
vrm.1.1 "On wiping out five army chiefs, seven sons of ministers, and on kneading down a gallant Rakshasa named Aksha Kumara, Hanuma had to enter into the captivity of a powerful weapon darted by Indrajit, the son of Ravana.
vrm.1.3 Enthroning shoe sandals of Rama by Bharata Bharata s living in a village Nandigrama Rama s going to Dandaka forests killing the Rakshasa named Viradha.
vrm.1.3 The killing Rakshasas like Khara, Trishirasa and the upsurge of Ravana thereby, and also killing Rakshasa Maricha, and Ravana s abduction of Vaidehi, likewise.
vrm.1.15 "Oh! God, the Rakshasa named Ravana is torturing all of us with his intrepidity, as you have blessed him, and we are unable to control him.
vrm.1.15 "Thereby, there is a great panic for all of us from that Rakshasa with an awesome look, hence oh, god, it will be apt of you to give a thought for his elimination.
vrm.1.15 "That Rakshasa did not express about humans then with his disrespect to them, and evidently his death does not occur otherwise.
vrm.1.15 b, a "He that preposterous Rakshasa Ravana with his invigorated doggedness is torturing Devas along with eminent saints, Gandharva s, and Siddha s.
vrm.1.16 "What is the idea to eliminate that Rakshasa s chief Ravana, oh, Devas, adopting which strategy I will have to eliminate that thorn in the side of Sages?" Thus Vishnu asked the Devas.
vrm.1.16 "Satisfied with his ascesis Brahma gave boon to that Rakshasa that he shall have no fear for his life from many kinds of beings, excepting humans, because that Rakshasa indeed slighted humans earlier at the time of bestowing boon.
vrm.1.17 a Thus the Devas have procreated many thousands of such valorous and guise changing Vanaras who with their immeasurable strength and bravery are manifest for the elimination of the Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana.
vrm.1.20 One born in Paulastya dynasty, an extremely mighty and exceedingly brave Rakshasa named Ravana is there, and he with the boon given by Brahma, and accompanied with many other Rakshasas is torturing the triad of worlds, contemptuously.
vrm.1.25 "Then after sometime that yakshii Tataka delivered an indomitable son named Maricha, who by curse became a Rakshasa.
vrm.1.25 "With desperation brewing in her she roaringly rushed towards the sage as though to eat him away, and on seeing her rushing along with her son Maricha towards him, the godly saint Agastya firstly cursed Maricha saying, you will attain Rakshasa hood.
vrm.1.39 "And on the day of a sacred function called Ukthyam, Indra assumed the form of a Rakshasa and stole the ritual Horse of the chief of the ritual, namely Sagara.
vrm.1.75 "Oh, best one among men, out of the two longbows Gods gave one to restive Tryamvaka, God Shiva for a combat with Tripura, and oh, Kakutstha, that bow alone is the annihilator of Tripura, the Rakshasa.
vrm.2.69 “I saw an ugly faced female Rakshasa, wearing red colored clothes, laughingly dragging away the king.
vrm.2.116 "O, darling! Here, a Rakshasa called Khara, Ravana s younger brother who is a boaster, victorious in battle, cruel and eater of human flesh, haughty and sinful having uprooted all the ascetics who dwell in Janasthana, is unable to endure you also.
vrm.2.116 "O, darling! Khara, the Rakshasa will behave unjustly with you in the same way.
vrm.3.2 Deep eyed, huge mouthed, horrible with a monstrous belly, hideously misshapen, and a very soaring one that Rakshasa is, an ugly one with a horrendous look.
vrm.3.2 a He that Rakshasa on seeing Rama, Lakshmana and Seetha ran towards them very angrily, like the Time, the Eliminator of people.
vrm.3.2 you insulters of sainthood? b a "I am a Rakshasa named Viradha and I will be on the rove in this impassable forest with weapon, always eating the flesh of sages.
vrm.3.2 now gone into the wretched hands of a Rakshasa.
vrm.3.3 Then in his turn that Rakshasa Viradha said this sentence filling the forest with his gruesome voice, "I am asking you, really.
vrm.3.3 tell me who you are and whereto you wish to go? Then that highly resplendent Rama said about his Ikshvaku dynasty to the blazing faced Rakshasa who is insistent.
vrm.3.3 Rama in reply said this to that Rakshasa Viradha, whose eyes are fully bloodshot in anger, who is monstrous in his body, and evil in intent.
vrm.3.3 Then, stringing his bow Rama indeed darted very sharp arrows, very quickly and well aiming the Rakshasa.
vrm.3.3 When that Rakshasa is thus struck, then he placed Vaidehi down from his arms, hauled up his spear, and very angrily rushed towards Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.3.3 Then with an effulgent arrow rain those two brothers incessantly rained on Rakshasa Viradha, who is similar to the terminator of lifetime.
vrm.3.3 He that highly horrendous Rakshasa laughed at that arrow shower, and standing for a while he yawned, and on his yawning and stretching his limbs in fatigue those arrows that earlier have gone speedily, spilled out from his body that speedily.
vrm.3.3 Rakshasa Viradha held back his lives by the touch of boon, and raising up the spear he ran quickly at Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.3.3 He that Rakshasa thus beaten very firmly by Rama and Lakshmana, then on grabbing those unwavering ones and manly Tigers with his arms, that furious Rakshasa wished to carry them away.
vrm.3.3 Knowing the thinking of the Rakshasa for sure, Rama spoke to Lakshmana, "Let him easily carry us anywhere on his way.
vrm.3.3 "Let this Rakshasa carry us as he wishes, and Saumitri, by which way this night walker goes, that alone will be our way.
vrm.3.3 That Rakshasa entered into a baffling forest that is like a very dark cloud in its sheen, where a variety of massive trees are contained in, numerous flocks of vulturine Birds are overspreading, and where wild Jackals and other predaceous animals are sprawling around, along with Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.3.4 "He that truth abiding, virtuous, and the flawless Rama of Dasharatha is carried off along with Lakshmana by the Rakshasa with a ferocious look.
vrm.3.4 oh, best Rakshasa, thieve me instead and release Kakutstha s.
vrm.3.4 On hearing Vaidehi s that utterance those valorous ones Rama and Lakshmana speedily busied themselves in eliminating that evil minded Rakshasa Viradha.
vrm.3.4 Soumitri indeed severed the left arm of that ferocious one, while Rama rent the right arm of that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.4 When his arms are mutilated that Rakshasa similar to a dark cloud is frustrated, fainted, and fell onto ground, like the mountain demolished by the Thunderbolt of Indra.
vrm.3.4 They battered that Rakshasa with their fists, hands and feet, and even by heaving and hurling him again and again they entirely pounded on him on the ground.
vrm.3.4 Though that Rakshasa is battered with many arrows, even sheared off with two swords, and even though he is entirely pounded on the ground he is not killed.
vrm.3.4 On observing that the mountain similar Rakshasa is ineradicable that easily, then Rama, the sublime one, and the bestower of shelter in fear, spoke this sentence to Lakshmana.
vrm.3.4 "Oh! Manly tiger Lakshmana, it is impossible to overpower this Rakshasa with weapons in a confrontation, hence, let’s bury this Rakshasa.
vrm.3.4 On hearing that said by Raghava, Rakshasa Viradha sincerely spoke these humble words to Rama, the finest one from Kakutstha dynasty.
vrm.3.4 "By curse I had to enter this ghoulish Rakshasa s body, but I am a Gandharva, named Tumburu and Kubera cursed me.
vrm.3.4 And Raghava on hearing those words of the Rakshasa ordered Lakshmana, Lakshmana“, a very deep pit be dug for this furious and ferocious reprobate in this forest, as though for an Elephant.
vrm.3.4 Those deftly victorious ones Rama and Lakshmana who compose themselves in a given fight, both have gladly raised that Viradha, a ghoulish one in fight, a terrifying Rakshasa who is still blaring, with all their might and hurled him into the pit.
vrm.3.4 On observing the indestructibility of that Rakshasa with any weapon, however sharp it might be, those two best ones among men that are very expertly skilled have thought over well and undertook the elimination of that great Rakshasa in a pit.
vrm.3.4 On listening to that which is said by Viradha, Rama resolved his mind to cast him into pit, and when that mighty Rakshasa is being flung into the pit the whole forest blared with that Rakshasa s cries.
vrm.3.4 Then they two who have dazzling golden bows have eliminated that Rakshasa and retrieved Seetha, and they gladly journeyed on in that great forest like the two entities abiding on the skies, namely the Sun and Moon.
vrm.3.5 After killing that stupendously mighty Rakshasa Viradha in forest, then Rama comfortingly embraced Seetha, and spoke to his brother Lakshmana who is beaming forth with resplendence.
vrm.3.11 Then by Sage Agastya, whom Gods have prayed to end this Rakshasa menace, and whom Asura Ilvala invited to feast during obsequial rites, he that Agastya having relished the fiendish Asura in the form of Ram, they say, had finished him off.
vrm.3.11 Then on hearing the words of sage Agastya affirming brother s demise, that night walking Rakshasa furiously commenced to assault the sage.
vrm.3.11 When that Rakshasa rushed towards that best Bhraman to kill, he that sage glowing with his own refulgence burnt him down just by his flame like eyes and doomed him to death.
vrm.3.14 On seeing such an eagle in the forest those two highly privileged brothers Rama and Lakshmana questioned it asking, "Who you are?" presuming it to be a Rakshasa.
vrm.3.17 She is but the sister of ten faced Rakshasa Ravana, Shuurpanakha by her name and she has seen him on reaching the paradisiacal being like Rama.
vrm.3.17 "And the mighty Kumbhakarna who will always be in profound sleep is my brother, and the virtue souled Vibhishana too is my brother, but he does not behave like a Rakshasa, and two more bothers of mine are Khara and Duushana who are renowned for their bravery in war.
vrm.3.19 On seeing her who fell before him in a misshapen and blood soaked condition, Rakshasa Khara is all stewed up and asked her.
vrm.3.21 On seeing Shuurpanakha who came back only to wreck havoc on Rakshasa race and again fell before him as before, Khara spoke this sentence to her in clear terms in all his fury.
vrm.3.22 Then that Rakshasa force with their ghoulish skin shields, weaponry and flags, issued forth from Janasthana, blaring blatantly and foraying dashingly.
vrm.3.23 Khara speedily bolted in his chariot to the van of his legions, and on seeing that Rakshasa Khara going in front other important Rakshasas too rushed to fore.
vrm.3.23 Likewise Mahakapaala, Stuulaaksha, Pramaathi, Trishira are the four commanders of Rakshasa forces and they followed Duushana marching at his behind.
vrm.3.26 b, a On destructing the Horses with excruciating arrows, he even fragmented the head of the charioteer with a crescent barbed arrow, and even impaled the chest of Rakshasa Duushana with some more arrows.
vrm.3.26 b, Saying so Khara himself rushed towards Rama in rage, and Shyenagaami, Prithugriiva, Yajnashatru, Vihamgama Durjaya, Karaveeraaksha, Parusha, Kaalakaarmuka, Hemamaali, Mahamali, Sarpaasya, and Rudhiraaksha are the twelve fiendishly atrocious troop leaders of Rakshasa forces, and they too rushed towards Rama launching their atrocious arrows.
vrm.3.26 Then on surveying that great Rakshasa force which is eliminated by Rama in that staggering war, Khara then marched on to reach Rama in a huge chariot, as with Indra who will march upraising his Thunderbolt.
vrm.3.27 But when Khara is about to lunge to the forefront of Rama, nearing him the commander of Rakshasa forces named Trishira spoke this to him.
vrm.3.27 By that death greedy Rakshasa Trishira, Khara is manoeuvred and Khara to him said begone.
vrm.3.27 Trishira with a lustrous chariot that is yoked with equally lustrous Horses hurried towards Rama in that war, like a tri peaked mountain, for they say, he is a tri headed Rakshasa.
vrm.3.27 On seeing the oncoming of that Rakshasa Trishira, Raghava welcomed him by speedily winnowing smarting arrows from his bow.
vrm.3.27 Later when Trishira smote on the forehead of highly enraged Rama with three arrows, Rama s ire is intensified and he franticly said this to that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.27 "Oho! What an energy of a triumphing adventurer is this! A Rakshasa with this sort of energy is adventuring me, whose arrows rap my forehead peripherally, like flowers!
vrm.3.27 And with three sharp and rapid arrows, and even with his own exasperation, Rama of inestimable aptitude rolled the three heads that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.28 On seeing the annihilation of the insufferable and mighty force of Rakshasas, even that of Duushana and Trishira by lone Rama, and thus to apprehend that the Rakshasa force is wholly destructed, that Rakshasa Khara became apprehensive, and then he lunged at Rama, as with Namuchi who once lunged at Indra.
vrm.3.28 When charioted Khara came to the presence of Rama with bow in hand and ready for a close combat, that Rakshasa appeared to all beings as the Terminator handling his noose.
vrm.3.28 Khara presumed that greatly indefatigable Rama is wholly fatigued by now, though he has shown his mettle of boldness in eliminating all of the Rakshasa forces, all the while.
vrm.3.28 Then afterwards that great resplendent Rama wishing to eliminate the Rakshasa, infuriately launched thirteen iron arrows that are sharply whetted and similar to the dazzle of sun.
vrm.3.29 "The residents of Dandaka forest are the highly propitious sages that tread the path of virtue, and oh, Rakshasa, what benefit you gain in killing them, really? "Even if a fortune is made for a lavish living with an iota of merit, the evildoers, that too reprobates, further more those that are abominated by world will not last long, no more that petrified tree trunks.
vrm.3.30 "So, this is all the strength of yours and your army that is displayed and nothing more to display, is it! You wretched Rakshasa, it is paltriest compared to my strength, yet you vaunt aloud futilely!
vrm.3.30 "In boasting you are knavish, in character roguish, and in behaviour ghoulish, such a Rakshasa as you are, I will take your life away as the Divine Eagle Garuda took away Ambrosia.
vrm.3.30 "While you are in profound sleep, oh, notorious Rakshasa, this Dandaka forest becomes a shelter to the shelter worthy sages and saints.
vrm.3.30 "To which Rakshasi s your kind of grievous Rakshasa is the husband, they must have taken birth in a befittingly grievous family like that of yours, and must be well matched to you in grievous atrocities, and though they might not have tasted a grievous situation so far, since their lives have become meaningless, now they will become the enjoyers of the empathy of grief.
vrm.3.30 Khara fell down on to earth and on being burnt by the radiation of that arrow he is like Rakshasa Andhaka, who once was very completely burnt by Rudra in Shveta araNya, the White forest.
vrm.3.30 She whose face is beaming with delight that Seetha, the daughter Janaka, on seeing Rama who has eliminated Rakshasa troops, and whom great sages are worshipping, again embraced him and became rapturous.
vrm.3.31 Akampana with his palms adjoined and voice hesitant with fear sought for the clemency of that Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana who is enraged in that way.
vrm.3.31 "Oh, Dasagriva, it is impossible to conquer that Rama in war for your, either singly or along with the hosts of the Rakshasa supporters of yours, as one heaven cannot be won by many sinners.
vrm.3.31 On hearing the words of that chief of Rakshasas, Maricha spoke these words, "who broached the subject of Seetha with you, an enemy in the fakery of a friend? Oh, tigerly Rakshasa, who is that censurable one that is unhappy with you, since he is giving such a self ruinous advise?
vrm.3.32 b, a He who enviously devastated the divine gardens of Kubera, called Caitraratha, along with a divine Lake of Lotuses pertaining to the same Kubera, called Pushkarini, and the gardens of Indra, called Nandana, along with other paradisiacal gardens of Gods, Shuurpanakha saw such an envious Rakshasa.
vrm.3.32 b, a He who is such an embezzler of the Vedic rituals at the time of their culmination, a malicious one, and one with cruel acts, a hinderer of Vedic rituals, or, the slayer of those Brahmans that conduct Vedic rituals contrary to his wishes, and one who is heartless and a rampant Rakshasa, who is a delighter in the iniquity to the people, at him Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.33 "Externally you are belligerent with sensible Gods, Gandharva s and other Rakshasas, and internally you are needful of intelligence agents, and such as you are, you are an erratic even, then how can you thrive as a king! "Your bent is boyish and you are mindless, oh, Rakshasa, you are not able to know the knowable danger because you are carefree, and how do you thrive as a king! "Oh, so called best one among triumphant kings, those kings that do not retain spies, treasuries and strategies under their control, but vouchsafe them to others, they are of a piece with the peasantry.
vrm.3.35 That lordly Rakshasa then has gone to the vehicle garage in secrecy, and directed the charioteer thus as, let the chariot be harnessed.
vrm.3.35 Dasha aanana, the Dasamukha Rakshasa, whose complexion like the smoothened Lapis gem is lustrous, whose regalia that comprise white long furred fans, white Parasol and the like is spectacular, whose ornaments made out of refined gold are glittering, who similar to a kingly mountain with ten pinnacles and crags by way of his ten heads and twenty arms is gorgeous, and such a chief of Rakshasas who by that way is an adversary of Gods and cutthroat of eminent sages, seated in a nitid golden chariot that is rideable by the wish of its steersman, he shone forth like a black cloud fringed with the streaks of lightning and rimmed with flights of cranes.
vrm.3.35 At that place Ravana saw the Rakshasa named Maricha, wearing jute clothes and black Deerskin and tufts of hairs, and the one with regulated diet.
vrm.3.35 That Rakshasa Maricha welcomed the king Ravana and customarily entertained him catering all the offerings that are beyond the scope of humans.
vrm.3.36 "You are aware as to how my brother Khara, and the mighty armed Duushana, also my sister Shuurpanakha, and even the highly fiery Rakshasa and devourer of raw flesh Trishira, and even numerous other night walking Rakshasas who are cocksure of hitting their targets have made Janasthana as their residency, and while residing there they put the sages of that great forest that tread a righteous path to torture, of course, all this as assigned by me.
vrm.3.36 b, a "He who is put to flight by his infuriated father, and who came to Dandaka forest along with his wife, that ignoble Kshatriya is the slaughterer of that Rakshasa army of mine, as his lifespan is diminished.
vrm.3.36 b, a "Oh, highly powerful Maricha, with you and with my brothers standing by my side as my associates, I indeed care a damn for all of the Gods if they are going to wage a war against me, therefore, oh, Rakshasa Maricha, as you are capable of rendering aid you should indeed become my aide in this venture.
vrm.3.38 b, a "When the sage Vishvamitra is spoken thus, then he said to the king, No other force in the world than Rama can counterbalance that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.38 "Oh, king, there is no other sin that is outrageous and gravest than the dalliance with another s wife and, besides, you already have a thousand wives, isn t so! "Abide by your own wife and be delighted with her, oh, Rakshasa, safeguard your own ethnos, thus safeguard dignity, affluence, and kingdom of Rakshasas, thereby safeguard even your own dear life.
vrm.3.40 b, a "Oh, Rakshasa, I did not ask the rights and wrongs concerning me, nor that which is expedient for me, but oh, Rakshasa of untold bravery, I have said this much to you.
vrm.3.40 "Oh, Rakshasa, on carrying out this stint in this manner you may go as you like, and to you oh, Maricha with solemn vows, I will grant half of my kingdom.
vrm.3.41 "It is impossible to govern kingdom, oh, Rakshasa, the night walker, for a king with acridity, with hostility, or with immorality.
vrm.3.42 By that word of Maricha Rakshasa Ravana is very much gladdened and he spoke this sentence tightly hugging him.
vrm.3.42 b, a "And on hearing Ravana s words Rakshasa Maricha then became a deer and indeed ambled freely in the frontage of Rama s hermitage.
vrm.3.42 b, a Thus that Rakshasa Maricha emerged like a highly splendorous and fascinating deer in a wink highly irradiating those woodlands, and the threshold of Rama s hermitage in particular.
vrm.3.42 Adopting such an exquisite and heart stealing form which is amazingly dappled with the colours of diverse ores, that Rakshasa ambled all over there freely with the bearing of a real deer in order that Vaidehi might be deluded, and he moved forward onto the pastures.
vrm.3.42 That Rakshasa who has gone into the deer hood has gone after some herd of deer.
vrm.3.42 All the other animals moving in that forest on seeing this Rakshasa deer with their necks up have come close to it, and on smelling it well they are running away to all the ten directions noticing it as a Rakshasa turned into a deer.
vrm.3.42 b, a Even that Rakshasa in the deer s semblance Maricha, though indulged in killing those forest animals, and though the other animals are touching him, he is not killing and eating them indulgently, only for the reason of camouflaging his present nature of Rakshasa hood.
vrm.3.43 But Lakshmana became incredulous on seeing it and said to Rama, "I believe this deer to be that Maricha, the Rakshasa.
vrm.3.43 "You are telling me that this is the wizardry of the Rakshasa.
vrm.3.43 Even then, Lakshmana, if this results in that way as a Rakshasa s wizardry, my duty also results in the elimination of that deer.
vrm.3.43 "If this deer is Maricha, this heinous and vicious souled Rakshasa has indeed tortured many eminent sages earlier when was on the prowl in the forests, thus he is eliminable.
vrm.3.43 Rakshasa" Vaataapi who held ascetics in contempt was here earlier, and staying in the stomachs of Brahmans he used to come out by ripping their stomachs open and thus he was killing Brahmans, like a mare calf killing its own mother at its time of birth by ripping the womb of its own mother.
vrm.3.43 "On one occasion after some time, that Vaataapi avariciously obtained that great saint and the one who is endowed with effulgent, namely Agastya, as an eatable, but actually that Rakshasa has became an eatable to the sage.
vrm.3.43 "On observing the Rakshasa Vaataapi who is trying to assume his original form of Rakshasa in order to come out of his stomach, that godly saint Agastya spoke this to Vaataapi with a scornful smile.
vrm.3.43 Lakshmana", such a Rakshasa who is like Vaataapi will not be there any more.
vrm.3.43 He who disregards someone of my kind, who always abides in righteousness and who is self controlled, such a Rakshasa will be eliminated as sage Agastya has eliminated Rakshasa Vaataapi, if that Rakshasa happens to get at me.
vrm.3.44 But remembering the words of Ravana that Rakshasa gave a thought, how best will Seetha hasten Lakshmana to this place, and how best Ravana can abduct Seetha in a place void of people.
vrm.3.44 When Rama s incomparable arrow has indeed shattered his crucial organ, namely the heart, in a downright manner, then Maricha assumed a very massive physique of a Rakshasa, abandoning the form of Golden Deer.
vrm.3.44 a On seeing that Rakshasa with a fiendish look, who has fallen to earth with limbs steeped in blood, and who is weltering on the surface of earth, Rama emotionally took flight to Seetha reminiscing Lakshmana s words.
vrm.3.44 "This Rakshasa died while crying out with a blatant voice ha, Seetha.
vrm.3.44 On killing that Rakshasa in the form of Golden Deer, and also on hearing his yelling, Rama is ensorcelled with a frantic fear caused by his own gloom.
vrm.3.45 b, a "Evidently it is not the voice of Rama, nor that of any other god, but someone mimicked that voice for chicanery, and that must be the illusory voice of that Rakshasa Maricha, similar in effect to the magical city of Gandharva s usually created by magicians in general.
vrm.3.46 In the meanwhile the Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana, who is all the while waiting for some lapse of Rama, neared Vaidehi in the getup of a sanyaasi.
vrm.3.47 When Ravana said in this way, Seetha the daughter of Janaka, a flawless one by her physique, dishonoured and replied that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.47 "You who are an ill fated Rakshasa, oh, Rakshasa, by your wooing the dear wife of Raghava, thus you must be visualising many golden trees, undeniably.
vrm.3.48 "Oh, Rakshasa, un mirrored is the prettiness of prettyish Shaci Devi, and one may live long on forcibly snatching her away from the hands of the wielder of Thunderbolt, Indra, but to him who intimidates or abuses me or women like me, there will be no Moksha, release from the cycle of rebirth, even if he has consumed Amrita Ambrosia.
vrm.3.49 b, a On saying that sentence to Maithili, who by herself is a nice talker and who is a proper one for addressing with nice words, that verily evil minded Rakshasa Ravana maddened by lust drew nigh of Seetha and grabbed her, as Budha, the Jupiter grabs the Star Rohini in firmament.
vrm.3.49 you are incognisant of me who am being abducted by this Rakshasa who is a dissembler.
vrm.3.50 Such as I am, oh, Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana, I am the mightiest king of Eagles known by the name Jatayu.
vrm.3.51 As with a startling combat between two gigantic and winged mountains, called Mountain Maalyavanta s, that combat between the eagle and Rakshasa then became a startling one.
vrm.3.51 Now the Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana infuriately took up ten deadly arrows that are similar in their shine to the Shafts of the Terminator, wishful of the elimination of his enemy.
vrm.3.51 That Jatayu on seeing teary eyed Janaki in the chariot of the Rakshasa forcefully lunged towards that Rakshasa heedless of arrows that are lunging at him.
vrm.3.51 The highly resplendent king of Eagles Jatayu swiftly rose to sky dashing practically to forestall Ravana, which Rakshasa s assault devices are all demolished by now save for a single sword, but who is cheerful to spirit away the daughter of Janaka, and actually spiriting away holding her onto his flank, and Jatayu spoke this to such Ravana.
vrm.3.51 Even on speaking those commonsensical words to Ravana, Jatayu found him carrying off Seetha heedlessly, then that valorous Jatayu descended on the hind side of that Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana, devastatingly.
vrm.3.51 His lips becoming intolerantly quivery when Ravana is exasperated by that king of Eagles repetitiously, that Rakshasa staggered on to his right targeting the hovering eagle at his hind side to fell it down.
vrm.3.51 When that Rakshasa of cruel actions has ruptured his wings that colossal eagle Jatayu immediately fell down to earth with a lessened life.
vrm.3.52 when Seetha devoid of Rama in that timberland is clinging and muffling a sturdy tree like a climber plant, and bawling, Rama, Rama, and that Rakshasa whose shine is similar to the Death has clutched her hair loosened from her bun, as death loomed large on him.
vrm.3.52 Though that flower shower has fallen all over, it is windswept by the speed of Ravana, and fell again on that Dasamukha Rakshasa.
vrm.3.52 b, a She who is looking searchingly at the plane of earth for Rama or Lakshmana, and truly bawling in high pitched but mellowly voice calling Rama", Lakshmana", and whose hair lengths are tousled, and whose felicitous vermilion mark on her forehead is smudged very untidily, that Dasamukha Rakshasa abducted such an uncompromising husband devout, Vaidehi, only for his self ruination.
vrm.3.53 Seetha whose eyes turned coppery red with tears and resentment, still outpouring tears while being abducted she piteously poured this scorn on that gory eyed Rakshasa s chief, Ravana.
vrm.3.53 you basely Rakshasa.
vrm.3.53 "As you are dauntless in this daunting situation as for yourself, oh, Dasamukha Rakshasa, indeed it is clear that you are clearly fantasising the ill omened golden trees all around.
vrm.3.53 b, c She who is highly agonised and weeping before talking, a ranter who ranted much, a resentful lady who has come of age, and a pitiable whirler in the hands of Rakshasa whose whirligig has transformed into spasmodic jerking of her body for deliverance from that sinner, and in that way that sinner stole that princess Seetha.
vrm.3.54 Or Ravana placed down Seetha whose eyelashes are blackish and who is deep in bewilderment caused by whimpering, therein his palace chambers, as Rakshasa Maya once kept his lady love, an Apsara called Hema, in a Rakshasa Black Hole.
vrm.3.54 Ravana is then highly gladdened well and truly on gaining over Seetha, and even for holding sway over that Maithili, and equally for the well wrought and archly animosity with Rama, whereby that Rakshasa Ravana is hypocritically amused.
vrm.3.56 "If he that Rama glances you with his rancour torched eyes, you Rakshasa, you will be completely burnt down now itself, as with Kamadeva burnt down by Furious Shiva.
vrm.3.56 "This is that time which has bechanced on you owing to your molesting me, you basely Rakshasa, by which time factor yourself, all of your Rakshasas, and even all of your queens in the Chambers of Queens will be devastated.
vrm.3.56 "Likewise, I am the solemnly pledged legitimate wife of one who steadied himself in righteousness, and such as I am, you basely Rakshasa, it is impossible for you trespasser to touch me even.
vrm.3.56 "How a she swan ever frolicking with majestic swans in bunches of lotuses can leer at a water crow sneaking in a bunch of grass? "Oh, Rakshasa, you may either trammel or vandalise this inertial body of mine.
vrm.3.57 Rama on killing that Rakshasa Maricha, who is a guise changer at his wish and who moved about in the guise of a deer, instantly started to return on the trail by which he trailed after that deer Rakshasa.
vrm.3.57 "As could be seen from Maricha s becoming a Golden Deer only to sidetrack and take me away from hermitage, his becoming a Rakshasa when hit with an arrow, and his shouting words indeed like, ha, Lakshmana, ha, Seetha, I am killed, the Rakshasas are collectively intending to do away with Seetha.
vrm.3.57 When that soulful Rama has heard the whistle of jackal while returning, he persistently thought in this way about his detour caused by Rakshasa in the disguise of a deer, thus he speedily advanced towards his hermitage.
vrm.3.57 "This very Rakshasa in his likeness to a deer led me on and led me off distantly as I was indeed following him, and by an intense effort somehow he was killed, and when dying he transfigured into a Rakshasa.
vrm.3.58 "That impostor and highly impudent Rakshasa Maricha who shouted loudly as, oh, Lakshmana, might have caused fear even in you in everyway.
vrm.3.59 I do no think that there is a Rakshasa who can cause panic to Rama.
vrm.3.59 Oh, auspicious lady, it is unbefitting for you to panic, like lowly womenfolk who will be frivolously panicking for flimsy reasons, for the words like save me, shouted by some Rakshasa, who may conceivably be Maricha.
vrm.3.59 "By whom I am detoured from hermitage in the form of a deer he is indeed a Rakshasa, and he fell flat when my arrow hit him down.
vrm.3.59 "When I effortlessly shot an arrow setting on bowstring and stretching the bow to full length, he hit by that arrow left deer s body to become a piteously bewailing Rakshasa wearing bracelets and the like ornaments.
vrm.3.63 "My noblewoman might be abducted by a Rakshasa, and on reaching the sky that lady who converses with a sweet voice might have wept a lot fearfully, and it is definite that she must have shouted a lot, untunefully.
vrm.3.63 That visage with such lips is crowned with a hairdo with hair lumped together and plaited, such as her visage is, it must have become unshiny on her going into the repression of Rakshasa, as with an unshiny moon when repressed in the mouth of eclipsing planet Rahu, it is definite.
vrm.3.64 b, a This way when Rama is highly infuriated and who appeared to burn down anything just with his eyes, then he has seen on the ground gigantic footprints of a Rakshasa, and the footprints of Vaidehi, who appeared to have run
vrm.3.64 fearfully here and there in a helter skelter manner expecting the arrival of Rama, and which footprints are heavily trodden by a Rakshasa who followed her.
vrm.3.64 b, a On scrutinising the overly trodden footprints of Seetha and the Rakshasa, and a broken bow, broken quiver, and broken and variously bestrewn chariot also, then Rama became baffle hearted and said to his dear brother Lakshmana.
vrm.3.64 Evidently this is the modus operandi of someone who is a male Rakshasa, and you see how my animosity has become hundredfold to eradicate them.
vrm.3.67 b, a "It is apparent that this Rakshasa skulks in the forest in the semblance of an eagle, and having gluttonised that wide eyed Seetha he is now reposing comfortably.
vrm.3.67 when I am overtired Ravana gashed my wings and flew skyward taking Seetha of Videha kingdom with him, and it will be inapt of you to kill me who am already killed by the Rakshasa.
vrm.3.68 While this bird is venturing in my concern the Rakshasa felled him in combat and he is leaving off his lives owing to me, definitely.
vrm.3.68 What is his stamina of that Rakshasa? What is his form? And what are his strategies? And where is his stronghold? Oh, sire, tell me while I
vrm.3.68 That Rakshasa is the son of Vishravasa.
vrm.3.68 Oh, Soumitri, I will mount this lord of realm of Birds onto the pyre and cremate him who is killed by a feral Rakshasa.
vrm.3.69 But desiring to know the source of that noise that sword wielder Rama has seen a gigantically giant bodied and gigantesque chested Rakshasa in a section of brushwood along with his younger brother Lakshmana.
vrm.3.69 Then they both had to drew nigh of a waylaying Rakshasa Kabandha, who is situated frontally with an overgrown body, which is neckless, ergo
vrm.3.69 That diabolical Rakshasa is peaking like a huge mountain, his hair is horripilate and thickset, and his gleam is like a dark cloud, and his sounding is like a thunder.
vrm.3.69 That monster is now licking his giant mouth that is stuffed with spearhead like fangs, as he has just finished a gobble, and the brothers had to drew nigh of such a Rakshasa.
vrm.3.69 He is eating the highly brutal Bears, Lions, predators, and Elephants, and he is outstretching both of his deadly arms, each of which is stretchable to a Yojana distance, and the bothers neared such a Rakshasa.
vrm.3.69 That Rakshasa stayed waylaying the pathway of both the brothers who chanced there, while he is catching Bears, divers flights of Birds, and numerous choicest animals of those and those herds, gripping them with both of his long reaching hands and hauling towards his mouth at his paunch, or dropping them off if they are unpalatable, and the brothers reached nearby of such a Rakshasa.
vrm.3.69 Though they are the grapplers with swords and brandishers of unerring bows, and though outblazing is their pneuma and outstanding is their dexterity, both of those great mighty brothers lost control and had to yield themselves to that Rakshasa when he captured and dragged them.
vrm.3.69 a Oh, valiant brother, see me, who am out of control on my inner self, and gone into the control of the Rakshasa.
vrm.3.69 oh, Raghava, you leave me and get yourself released from the grip of the Rakshasa.
vrm.3.69 b, a In the meantime, that ruthless, log armed, fiercest Rakshasa Kabandha thunderously asked those brothers, Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.3.69 expiration at the hands of this Rakshasa presently, and the expropriation of Seetha previously, and the expulsion from kingship, still previously.
vrm.3.70 On prying at those two brothers, Rama and Lakshmana, who are completely stowed in the hangman s halter like arms of the Rakshasa, and who are enduring within it, Kabandha said this sentence to them.
vrm.3.70 Lakshmana who is possessed by anguish, and who is determined to wreck revenge on that Rakshasa, said these expedient and advisable words to Rama on hearing that Rakshasa s word.
vrm.3.70 This scurrilous Rakshasa quickly hauled in you and me to his face level, and he will quickly take us in, therefore, we will have to swiftly hack off his lengthy arms at his shoulder level.
vrm.3.70 Gruesome is this gargantuan bodied Rakshasa, and triumphing over just with his arms he has utterly devastated this province, and he now wishes to end us.
vrm.3.70 On hearing all of their conversation that Rakshasa is infuriated, and then widely opening his ferocious mouth he started to wolf down both of them.
vrm.3.70 Then both the Raghava s are very highly gladdened as the Rakshasa is hauling them towards his eye at shoulder level, and as they are the brothers with circumspection, they instantly mutilated his arms right at their shoulder joints only with two swords.
vrm.3.70 That Rakshasa on seeing at his dissevered shoulders on which the gushes of blood are overflowing, he self piteously asked those two bold ones
vrm.3.70 A Rakshasa stole his wife while he whose leverage is like that of god is living in the unpopulated forest.
vrm.3.70 But who are you? Your legs are broken, and your mouth is infernal, yet it is on your chest, and alike a topless, rootless tree trunk you are sprawling in the forest, how so, or, for what reason? Lakshmana asked the Rakshasa thus.
vrm.3.71 b, a "I only know his name but not the form of that Rakshasa.
vrm.3.71 b, a "With this unburnt body, oh, Rama, I indeed have no ability to discern anything, hence oh, lord, I will be able to speak about him who can familiarise you with that great mighty Rakshasa, by whom your Seetha is stolen, only after that incineration.
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.4.1 b, a "Definitely no Rakshasa has abducted that peacock’s ladylove, hence he is dancing with her in beautiful forests.
vrm.4.1 "Let the emplacement of that sinning Rakshasa e obtained.
vrm.4.4 such as he is, his wife is abducted by a guise changing Rakshasa in a lonely place, of whom we know not.
vrm.4.4 we know not which Rakshasa stole his wife.
vrm.4.4 One named Danu, son of Diti, who acquired Rakshasa hood by curse had said that Sugreeva, the chief of Vanaras, is a capable one, and he even said, that great valorous Sugreeva can know about the abductor of your wife.
vrm.4.4 saying thus that Danu is released from the curse of his Rakshasa hood, moved skyward and went away to heavens while becoming self luminous.
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.4.6 "And he also said about that arch Rakshasa s killing an Eagle named Jatayu on waiting for an opportunity, and his causing an agony in you by way of separating your wife.
vrm.4.6 undoubtedly I have seen Maithili while that Rakshasa with cruel deeds was abducting her.
vrm.4.6 Then Rama sadly asked to Sugreeva, "tell me Sugreeva, towards which country that ferocious looking Rakshasa abducted my dear one dearest than my lives, as spotted by you.
vrm.4.6 "For the sake of which Rakshasa I wish to eliminate whole of the Rakshasas, that troublemaker of mine, where does he live, either.
vrm.4.6 Oh, king of the fly jumpers, tell me which Rakshasa forcibly stole her, my dearest one than all, by molesting her in the forest, tell me about that enemy of mine, for sure I will lead him to the fore of Death today itself.
vrm.4.7 "Unfamiliar is the residence, or capability, or valour, or lineage of that sinning Rakshasa from a sinister dynasty, in any wise.
vrm.4.7 "But, trying to search for Maithili and that furious, evil minded Rakshasa Ravana, is your endeavour.
vrm.4.9 There was a fierce Rakshasa named Mayavi, the elder brother of Dundubhi and the son of one Rakshasa named Maya.
vrm.4.9 Though the females and myself bowed reverently to prevent Vali, he came out of palace in all his anger to kill that great Rakshasa.
vrm.4.9 A great fear was induced in that Rakshasa on seeing my brother and me too coming from a distance, and then he quickly ran away.
vrm.4.9 That Rakshasa speedily entered an un enterable cavity under the ground, covered with grass, and we too having reached there speedily stood at the aperture of that cavity for a while.
vrm.4.9 Then Vali has gone into the enfoldment of fury on observing the entry of that Rakshasa into the hole, whereby his senses felt outraged, and he said this sentence to me.
vrm.4.9 Sounds of screaming Rakshasa came to my ear, but the screeches of my brother who is involved in fight are unheard, in the least.
vrm.4.9 Then duly summoned by all of those ministers I was crowned, and while I was ruling the kingdom judiciously, oh, Raghava, that semi human Vali returned on killing that Rakshasa enemy.
vrm.4.10 b, a "You all are aware that earlier the gigantic and rancorous Rakshasa Mayavi invited me desiring a duel in that night.
vrm.4.10 "And that formidable Rakshasa Mayavi ran away as he was fraught with fear on seeing me with a second one at my side, and he speedily entered a great cavity of earth on seeing us two nearly reaching him.
vrm.4.10 b, "On knowing the Rakshasa s entry into that great precarious cavity, I said to this one, this cruel looking brother of mine.
vrm.4.10 "My power will not let me return from here to the capital without killing that Rakshasa, hence you wait at this cavity s entrance, till I kill that Rakshasa and come out of the cavity.
vrm.4.10 "Believing that he stayed at the entrance of the cavity I entered that impenetrable cavity, and then in searching for that Rakshasa there one year elapsed.
vrm.4.10 "That cavity has become impassable, since it is fully filled with the gushes of blood emanating from the mouth of that Rakshasa who fell yelling onto ground.
vrm.4.11 "Deriding the garner of weaves and gems he said to that vastly ocean "give me a fight" "Then, oh, Rama, that virtue minded and very powerful ocean rose up from his tabular position to heights, and spoke these words to that Rakshasa Dundubhi who is driven to doom by his own time.
vrm.4.11 So said ocean to the Rakshasa.
vrm.4.11 "Fathoming that ocean to be scared of him that noted Rakshasa Dundubhi arrived at the forests of Himavan like an arrow darted from bow, and that Dundubhi started to blare discordantly and toss the rock faces of that mountain that are like white Elephants in their figuration, severally.
vrm.4.11 "Then he who is like a silver cloud in his figuration, a gentle and delightful one in his appearance, that Himavan spoke these words to the Rakshasa staying on his own cliff.
vrm.4.11 On hearing Dundubhi s arrogant words that honest Himavan being an expert in sentence making, had to say angry words to that fierce Rakshasa that were never uttered by him earlier.
vrm.4.11 Thus said Himavan to that Rakshasa Dundubhi.
vrm.4.11 "That great mighty Rakshasa Dundubhi wearing the look of a Buffalo with sharp horns was awe inspiring, and like the arrival of a massive dark cloud in rainy season full with water on the edge of firmament, he arrived at the gateway of Kishkindha and bellowed clamorously like a war drum as though to quake the earth.
vrm.4.11 Vali cautioned that Rakshasa that way.
vrm.4.11 "Then Vali laughed that Rakshasa off, discharged all the females namely Tara and others, and then he spoke to that stupid lord of Rakshasas in anger.
vrm.4.11 "While each is assaulting the other in that fight between that Vanara and Rakshasa, that Rakshasa is impaired and Indra s son Vali toughened.
vrm.4.11 "Then the hastiest Vali swayed that dead and inanimate Rakshasa with both of his hands and hurled him a Yojana distance in a single flick.
vrm.4.11 "By his hurling the Rakshasa s body these trees are also completely destroyed, hence he ought not set his foot in a distance of one full Yojana around this hermitage, and if that evil minded one places his foot then he evidently does not exist.
vrm.4.11 Saying so to Sugreeva in a comforting manner, he that dextrous, vigorous Rama, the elder brother of Lakshmana sportively flipped the skeleton of Dundubhi with his big toe, and flicked that withered body of the Rakshasa with his big toe itself to a ten Yojana distance without lifting his foot.
vrm.4.17 "For which purpose I am killed, intending to do good to Sugreeva is incidental to it, you should have assigned me for that purpose in the first instance itself, and I would have brought that evil minded Rakshasa Ravana, the abductor of your wife in one day, that too without killing him in any fight, but by fastening him by neck, and I would have presented Maithili to you.
vrm.4.27 "If you are much too lackadaisical, indeed, you will not be capable to eliminate the enemy in war, specially a Rakshasa, especially a trickster, let alone all of your daring enterprises.
vrm.4.27 "On completely rooting out that agony then you stabilise your endeavour, and then you will be able to eliminate that Rakshasa Ravana along with his followers.
vrm.4.35 "On eliminating that worst Rakshasa Ravana, Sugreeva can bring Seetha together with Raghava, as with the coalescing of star Rohini with the Moon.
vrm.4.39 "That knavish Rakshasa Ravana deceitfully carried off Vaidehi for his own extinction, as Anuhlaada carried off Sachi Devi, the daughter of Puloma.
vrm.4.41 b, a "Anywise Seetha is searchable especially there on that island because it is the dwelling place of the king of Rakshasas Ravana, who is the coequal of Indra in his resplendence and which vile minded Rakshasa is to be rooted out.
vrm.4.46 "When Vali repulsed the Buffalo shaped Rakshasa Dundubhi towards Malaya mountain, then that Buffalo entered the cave of Mountain Malaya, and even Vali entered therein wishing to kill that Buffalo.
vrm.4.46 Vali" then came back to Kishkindha on killing that great Rakshasa, and then I was spellbound in fear of Vali s killing me, and I gave back the kingdom to Vali owing to my deference to him.
vrm.4.48 b, a On entering another fearsome forest which is overly encompassed with climbers and shrubberies they saw a Rakshasa of fiendish deeds who is fearless of Gods.
vrm.4.48 b, a All of those vanara s are amazed to see that fiendish Rakshasa standing similar to a mountainous boulder, and apprehending an imminent danger on observing that mountain similar Rakshasa, those vanara s have tightly girthed their wrestler s girdle cloth.
vrm.4.48 Even that mighty Rakshasa shouting at all vanara s, you are all dead.
vrm.4.48 he quickly thwacked that Rakshasa indeed with his palm.
vrm.4.48 b, a When Vali s son whacked him that Rakshasa spewed forth blood from his throat and fell onto ground alike an inverted mountain.
vrm.4.48 When that Rakshasa breathed his last all of those Vanaras with triumphal shimmer have wellnigh searched everywhere, and even in that cave of that mountain where that Rakshasa appeared, presuming that cave belonged to Ravana.
vrm.4.49 "We in oneness have searched there and thereabouts in the impassable forests, mountains, and rivers, and unfathomable cavities and in mountain caves up to their end, but we have not seen Janaki, so also that ill natured Rakshasa, the abductor of Seetha, is not seen.
vrm.4.51 "We entered this extensive hollow of earth thirstily, but on seeing this kind of these diverse and marvellous mansions we are verily amazed presuming that this is a dominion of some Rakshasa, and we are agitated in not knowing dos and don ts, and agonised at our incarceration.
vrm.4.52 "He mobilised us along with these important vanara s and Angada as helmsman to this southerly prospect, which is the walkabout of Sage Agastya and watched over by Yama, the Death god, saying, you all shall collectively search for Seetha of Videha kingdom together with the Rakshasa Ravana, a guise changer by his wish.
vrm.4.54 "Indeed, once Indra thudded his Thunderbolt on this very underground illusory place, but that act was indeed a trivial deed for that Thunderbolt made a single Rakshasa sized aperture to eliminate a single Rakshasa, Maya, which we now call Riksha bila, Black Hole, nevertheless Lakshmana will splinter whole of this Black Hole with his acute arrows, as if it is leafy bowl.
vrm.4.56 "Who speaks to announce as though to quake my heart that Jatayu, the more precious brother of mine than my own lives, is slain? "How a combat occasioned between that eagle and a Rakshasa in Janasthana, and how am I hearing this name of my brother after a long time.
vrm.4.58 knavish Rakshasa Ravana, please inform us.
vrm.4.58 by the black hearted Rakshasa Ravana.
vrm.4.58 and she was throwing her ornaments down and her limbs were highly wriggly to set herself free from that Rakshasa.
vrm.4.58 In the flank of that blackish Rakshasa her best ochry silk sari was dazzling like sunshine atop a blackish mountain, or like lighting athwart a blackish ocean.
vrm.4.58 Thus, I deem her to be Seetha by her excessive laudation of Rama, and let the location of that Rakshasa be heard from me while I say about it.
vrm.4.58 b, By which raw flesh eating Rakshasa this deplorable deed of abducting Seetha is done, if that Rakshasa is retaliated by Rama and you all, my vendetta towards the very same Rakshasa, caused by his animosity towards my brother Jatayu will also be fulfilled.
vrm.4.59 Perchance that Dasamukha Rakshasa is definitely a powerful and prideful Rakshasa.
vrm.4.62 A Rakshasa named Ravana, the chief of Rakshasas, and an unkillable one even for Gods or Rakshasas abducts Rama s wife from Janasthana.
vrm.4.64 Somewhere that ocean is as though sleeping well, and somewhere else it is as though sporting, elsewhere it is overspread with tidewaters as high as mountains, somewhere else it is tumultuous with the best Rakshasa beings who are the residents on the plane of netherworld, and the elephentine Vanaras despaired on seeing such a hair raising ocean.
vrm.5.1 You obtain a horrible mountain like Rakshasa appearance and make a face with fearful tusks, red brown eyes and as vast as the sky, and create an obstacle to Him for an instant.
vrm.5.1 That Goddess Surasa, thus spoken to by Devas and also being respected by them, wearing a horrible disfigured appearance of a Rakshasa in the middle of the ocean which caused fear to all, and stopping Hanuma who was flying, spoke these words.
vrm.5.2 "It is not possible for me to enter the Rakshasa city protected by cruel and strong Rakshasas, with this appearance".
vrm.5.3 Then that tiger among Vanaras Hanuma spoke to that Rakshasa "O auspicious one! After seeing this city I will return back again to where I came from.
vrm.5.3 That Rakshasa fell on land immediately by that hit with a distressed body and appeared with a horrific face.
vrm.5.10 Resting after having pleasure at night, bedecked with the best ornaments, he was a lover to the Rakshasa girls and causing comfort to Rakshasas.
vrm.5.10 That Hanuma saw in the house of that king of Rakshasa s, wives at the feet, Ravana being a gigantic one with loving wives, shone with crown tilted to the side, having strange hue with pearls and diamonds and of golden colour, with a face made brilliant by earrings, shone with the chest region smeared with red sandal, shining with a necklace wide, high and corpulent with a silk cloth of white colour falling on him, with eyes reddish like blood, well tied by a best cloth of yellow colour and of very best quality, resembling a heap of black beans, snoring like a hiss of a snake, like an Elephant sleeping in the middle of water belonging to the great river Ganga with all the four directions shone by the four lamps of golden colour, resembling a cloud with all the parts being shone by groups of lighting.
vrm.5.12 Rakshasa women of various forms, with crooked forms and horrific forms had been seen there by Hanuma but not that Seetha.
vrm.5.18 In that Seetha s matter, directed a lot by the god of love and excited by passion, that Rakshasa was not capable to suppress in self that desire.
vrm.5.21 Seetha listening to that horrible Rakshasa s word, being tormented spoke in reply with a pitiable voice, pitifully and slowly.
vrm.5.21 "O Rakshasa! How your wives are to be protected, in the same way others wives are to be protected.
vrm.5.21 "O Rakshasa! While the army of Rakshasas was being killed at Janasthana which became the land of dead, this bad deed has been done by you being powerless.
vrm.5.22 Some in the way of lips and in like manner some others with faces and eyes consoled that Seetha frightened by that Rakshasa.
vrm.5.22 "O vile Rakshasa! Whatever sinful word you spoke to me who is the wife of the great resplendent Rama, from that word where will you go to be released?" "Like an Elephant in rut and a hare at war in the forest, in the same way O vile one! Rama is like an Elephant and you are said to be like a hare.
vrm.5.22 The king Ravana who causes enemies to cry thus speaking to Seetha, thereafter ordered all Rakshasa women with horrible appearances.
vrm.5.22 Thereafter a Rakshasa named Dhanyamalini quickly neared Ravana, embraced him and spoke these words.
vrm.5.22 Thus spoken to by that Rakshasa that Ravana who was strong equalling a cloud, thereafter being taken away turned back laughing.
vrm.5.23 The king Ravana who makes enemies to cry thus speaking to Seetha thereafter also ordering all Rakshasa women went away.
vrm.5.23 Thereafter reaching Seetha Rakshasa women swooned with anger and with a very harsh speech spoke these words to Seetha.
vrm.5.23 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Ekajata with red eyes sue to anger calling Seetha with stomach that can be held by palm of the hand, spoke these words.
vrm.5.23 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Harijata with eyes like those of a cat turned around eyes due to anger and spoke these words.
vrm.5.23 Thereafter a Rakshasa named Praghasa swooning with anger and then frightening Seetha, spoke this horrible word.
vrm.5.23 Another Rakshasa woman named Vikata spoke these words: "By whom a number of times in war Devas, in war Nagas, Gandharvas and Danavas have been conquered that Ravana has come to your side.
vrm.5.23 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Durmukhi spoke these words: O one with long eyes! Fearing whom the sun will not comsume by heat, fearing whom the win will not blow, to that one why are you not favourable.
vrm.5.24 Thereafter Rakshasa women with a cruel nature, with crooked faces neared that Seetha and spoke unpleasant words harshly.
vrm.5.24 Seetha with eyes like lotuses hearing the words of Rakshasa women spoke these words with eyes filled with tears.
vrm.5.24 "All of you coming together whatever words which are hated in the world you spoke in my matter, this does it not seem sinful in your mind?" Human" woman is not waited to become wife of a Rakshasa.
vrm.5.24 Rakshasa women incited by Ravana listening to the words of Seetha, swooned with anger and frightened Her with harsh words.
vrm.5.24 That Vanara Hanuma not talking and hiding in the Simsupa tree listened to those Rakshasa women frightening Seetha.
vrm.5.24 Being frightened by Rakshasa women who were horrible that Seetha with best face with tears in eyes and moving from there reached that Simsupa tree.
vrm.5.24 Thereafter the wide eyed Seetha nearing that Simsupa tree being surrounded by Rakshasa women was situated there with gloom.
vrm.5.24 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Vinata with a horrible appearance with an angry form, crooked, having a prominent belly spoke to Her.
vrm.5.24 Another Rakshasa named Vikata with hanging breasts raising fist and roaring with anger spoke to Seetha.
vrm.5.24 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Chandodari swooning with anger, turning around a big spike spoke this word.
vrm.5.24 A Rakshasa woman named Praghasa spoke these words "Squeeze the neck of this cruel woman.
vrm.5.24 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Ajamukhi spoke these words "All of you killing this woman thereafter do equal pieces.
vrm.5.24 Thereafter a Rakshasa woman named Surpanakha spoke these words: "That which was spoken by Ajamukhi, is desirable to me.
vrm.5.25 As those Rakshasa woman with a cruel nature were speaking a lot harshly and horribly, Seetha cried.
vrm.5.25 Thus being spoken to by Rakshasa women, Seetha with a good mind being frightened a lot spoke as follows with a voice indistinct due to tears.
vrm.5.25 "A human woman is not suited to become a wife of a Rakshasa.
vrm.5.25 Being in the middle of Rakshasa women, being frightened by Ravana also, like a daughter of Gods, that Seetha did not get comfort being tormented by grief.
vrm.5.25 That Seetha was shaking like a plantain tree fallen down in an exceedingly windy place, trembling with fear of the Rakshasa women, and became with a pale face.
vrm.5.25 Seetha being tormented by grief said "Oh! Rama!" and again "Oh! Lakshmana!","Oh! Kausalya!, my mother in law" "Oh! Sumitra!" "I thus being tormented by cruel Rakshasa women here lacking Rama, being tormented by grief, when I am living even for a moment, death at wrong time to woman or to a man is hard thus being said this popular saying in the world is true.
vrm.5.25 "Not seeing my husband that Rama and obtaining control of Rakshasa women like a bank hit by water I am verily perishing with sorrow.
vrm.5.25 I am well protected by Rakshasa women.
vrm.5.26 "While Rama was heedless taken away by Maricha, I who have been crying was forcibly brought overpowered by the Rakshasa Ravana who can wear desired form.
vrm.5.26 "I will not touch even with my left foot Ravana a Rakshasa of reprehensible conduct.
vrm.5.26 "I am withheld by the Rakshasa Ravana with little strength.
vrm.5.26 "What now is that reason by which Rama with a firm courage is not protecting His dear wife stolen by a Rakshasa.
vrm.5.26 "While the sinful, vile Rakshasa Ravana is being killed, Lanka which is unconquerable till now, definitely will get drying up like a woman who lost husband.
vrm.5.26 "A Rakshasa will definitely eat me for breakfast.
vrm.5.27 "In that dream the Rakshasa Kumbhakarna has been seen thus by me.
vrm.5.28 I have become killable at the hands of this Rakshasa of disagreeable perception.
vrm.5.33 While Rama of great vigour was dwelling in the forest of Dandaka, the evil minded Rakshasa, Ravana took me, Rama s wife, away.
vrm.5.34 "O Rakshasa who can assume any form at your will! It is no good that again you are causing agony to me, emaciated because of fasting and feeling very miserable.
vrm.5.35 Then, Angada told Sampati a detailed account of events which led to the killing of that great bird at Janasthana, by a Rakshasa of terrific form, for your sake.
vrm.5.35 As prayed by Gods and seers, that great Vanara called Kesari, my father killed a Rakshasa named Shambasadana at a sacred shrine near the sea shore.
vrm.5.35 The countenance of that large eyed Seetha, who is beautiful, whose eyes are red white and long is shining like a moon, the king of stars liberated from Rahu the Rakshasa.
vrm.5.35 O Seetha! As provoked by the sages, Kesari, the valiant Vanara killed a Rakshasa called Shambasadana in battle.
vrm.5.36 The countenance of that large eyed Seetha, which appeared charming with red and white eyes shone like a moon the king of stars liberated by Rahu the Rakshasa.
vrm.5.42 I only know him as a Rakshasa, able to assume any form at his will, who arrived here.
vrm.5.44 Jambumali, the Rakshasa with great tusks, wielding a bow, donning crimson garlands and clothes, wearing beautiful chaplet and charming ear rings, possessing a gigantic body, having round and open eyes, the Rakshasa causing diseases, unconquerable in battle, a strong Rakshasa and the son of Prahasta, commanded by Ravana, started stretching with rashness his big bow resembling a rain bow garnished splendorous arrows and which brilliance was similar to that of a lightening and produced a sound like that of a thunder.
vrm.5.44 Hanuma, struck by those arrows, was enraged with that Rakshasa and then saw by his side, a big rock of a very large measure.
vrm.5.44 The enraged Rakshasa then struck back that rock with ten arrows.
vrm.5.46 Virupaksha, Yupaksha, Durdhara the Rakshasa, Praghasa and Bhasakarna, all of them brave Rakshasas, skilled in strategy, eager to capture Hanuma and equal to the speed of wind in battle.
vrm.5.47 Then, that eminent Rakshasa, who correctly knew how to fix his gaze on the target, to fit an arrow to the bow and to discharge it, hurled on Hanuma s head, three arrows which were well painted, having golden shafts and feathers and which resembled venomous serpants.
vrm.5.47 That Rakshasa in the form of a cloud, raining down arrows, then wielding a bow in the form of a rain bow, soon discharged arrows on Hanuma standing in the form of a mountain, like a cloud showering rain on a high mountain.
vrm.5.47 With his arms, thighs, hips and neck broken, blood dripping, his bones and eyes crushed, his joints displaced and his sinews shattered, that Rakshasa was killed by Hanuma.
vrm.5.48 "All the Kimkaras, a Rakshasa called Jambumali, the heroic sons of ministers and the five chiefs of army have been killed, as also the army together with highly abundant number of Horses, Elephants and chariots.
vrm.5.48 Hearing the words of his father, Indrajit the strong Rakshasa, possessing a power similar to that of Gods, with an undepressed mind and with his intellect resolved to fight, performed a circumambulation in honour of Ravana the lord.
vrm.5.48 Fastened with the weapon discharged by the Rakshasa, Hanuma became motionless and fell down on the ground.
vrm.5.49 Ravana looked strange with his ten heads, having terrible looking yet good looking pair of red eyes each, with brilliant sharp enormous teeth and protruding lips, like a daring Rakshasa endowed with extra ordinary vigour, shining brightly as Mount Mandara with its peaks and infested with snakes of different varieties.
vrm.5.49 He was proud of his might and had four counselors sitting nearby, all belonging to the Rakshasa race and who knew the secret of good counsel, viz.
vrm.5.49 Durdhara, Prahasta, Mahaparshva the Rakshasa and the counselor Nikumbha and looked like the entire terrestrial globe enclosed by four oceans.
vrm.5.54 Leaving the house of Vibhishana, Hanuma of great splendour, went successively to the houses of Rashmiketu, Surya shatru, Hrasvakarna, Damshtra, Romasha the Rakshasa, Yuddhonmatta, Matta, Dhvajagreeva the Rakshasa, the terrific Vidyujjihva, Hastimukha, Karala, Pishacha, Shonitaksha, Kumbhakarna, Makaraksha, Yajnashatru, Brahmashatru, Narantaka, Kumbha as also the evil minded Nikumbha and burnt the houses.
vrm.5.58 There, I saw a terrible female Rakshasa lying in water.
vrm.5.58 "I heard Siddhas and Charanas, moving in the sky, saying that Simhika the dreadful Rakshasa was instantly killed by Hanuma.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing those words of the evil minded Ravana, Seetha was very much irritated and spoke the following excellent words: "How did your tongue not fall of, O the worst Rakshasa, by speaking such words not to be uttered, to the consort of Rama, of boundless glory, and the daughter in law of Dasaratha the lord of Ikshvaku dynasty?"
vrm.5.58 "I destroyed that Rakshasa, though endowed with a great strength and skilled in warfare, along with his followers, with my terrific iron bar itself.
vrm.5.58 The king Rama told me that his wife had been taken away by a Rakshasa and that I had to help him in that matter by all means
vrm.5.58 "Without knowing my glory in the form of my immunity to death, the evil minded Ravana, the Rakshasa doing terrific acts, ordered for my killing.
vrm.5.68 Rama ought not to take me back for fear that Ravana, in the same manner as Ravana the Rakshasa took me away from the forest in the absence of Rama by cheating that heroic Rama.
vrm.6.4 Rama, a very bright man and a true warrior, having duly heard the words of Hanuman from the beginning, thereafter spoke as follows: “I shall destroy quickly Lanka, the city of that terrible Rakshasa Ravana, of which you just informed I am really telling this.
vrm.6.4 “Let that Rakshasa go to his abode after kidnapping Seetha.
vrm.6.8 A valiant Rakshasa by name Prahasta, the commander in chief, appearing like a dark cloud, joined his palms in salutation and spoke these words.
vrm.6.8 A Rakshasa by name Durmukha, being seriously enraged, spoke to him as follows: “This humiliation meted out to us by that Vanara is indeed not to be tolerated.
vrm.6.8 Then, a Rakshasa by name Vajrahanu who was resembling a mountain, becoming enraged and licking the corners of his mouth with his tongue, spoke as follows: “You do your occupations freely redeemed of mental pain, play comfortably and drink spirituous liquor without any worry.
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.6.13 Perceiving Ravana enraged, a very strong Rakshasa named Mahaparshva thought for a while and with joined palms, spoke as follows: “That man indeed is a fool, who after reaching a forest inhabited by wild beasts and vicious Elephants and having duly found honey, does not drink it.
vrm.6.15 "What after all are those princes who are mere human beings? They can be killed even by one very ordinary Rakshasa among us.
vrm.6.16 Ravana, goaded by death, spoke the following harsh words to Vibhishana, who was very stable and who had spoken wholesome words: One“ can stay together with an enemy or even with a furious snake, but one cannot stay together with an adversary yet avowing himself as a friend" “O, Rakshasa! I know the conduct of kinsmen in all the worlds.
vrm.6.16 “O, Rakshasa! The kinsmen indeed insult and even humiliate their kinsman, who is an effective leader, a person of education and right conduct and a valiant man.
vrm.6.16 “O, Rakshasa, walking about by night! If any other person utters these words in this manner, he will be ceasing to exit at this moment.
vrm.6.17 “See this Rakshasa possessing all types of weapons, coming along with four Rakshasas.
vrm.6.17 That great and highly intelligent Vibhishana, halting in the sky itself, saw Sugriva and those Vanaras and spoke to them in a loud voice as follows: “There is a Rakshasa called Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, having a bad conduct.
vrm.6.17 “O, Lord! He is indeed a Rakshasa by nature and a brother of an enemy who came directly from an adversary.
vrm.6.17 “O, the faultless one! Being sent with a crooked intent, this Rakshasa came here to attack when you are going to repose faith in him, remaining hidden by his witchcraft.
vrm.6.17 “O, Rama the best among the wise! It has been told by me this according to my ability about the sincerity of this Rakshasa.
vrm.6.18 Further, Vibhishana the Rakshasa is desirous of acquiring the kingdom.
vrm.6.18 “O, Rama the excellent among the tolerant! Realise that Ravana has sent Vibhishana, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.18 “O, the mighty armed Rama! The faultless one! This Rakshasa is being sent to kill you who are unsuspecting, or to kill Lakshmana or me in trust.
vrm.6.18 “What does it matter whether that Rakshasa is very bad or not bad? He is incapable of doing even a little harm to me.
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.6.19 Hearing the aforesaid words of the learned Rakshasa Vibhishana, Sugreeva came to the place where Rama and Lakshmana were there.
vrm.6.20 Thereafter, an energetic Rakshasa named Shardula came and saw the army, commanded by Sugriva, which was drawn up in a battle array.
vrm.6.20 That Rakshasa, the spy of Ravana the evil natured king of Rakshasas, coolly observed that army from all sides, speedily returned to Lanka and spoke to their king as follows: “Boundless and immeasurable like another ocean, this multitude of Vanaras and Rikshas is approaching Lanka.
vrm.6.20 Then he spoke the following words to a Rakshasa by name, Shuka the foremost among those who know their duty.
vrm.6.20 Then Shuka the Rakshasa heralded by Ravana turned himself into the form of a bird and quickly flew into the sky.
vrm.6.20 The Rakshasa thus attacked was forcibly seized by all the Vanaras and immediately brought down to the ground from the sky.
vrm.6.20 “O, stupid Ravana! You along with your younger brother will not be left unkilled by Rama, even if you are protected by all including Indra or even if you have disappeared by virtue of conjuring trick or obtained, the solar orbit or entered the nethermost subterranean region or even if approached the lotus feet of Shiva “I do not see any protector to you as such in the three worlds, nor do I see any Pisachas or a Rakshasa or a Gandharva or an Asura coming forward to protect you.
vrm.6.24 There is no more possibility of an alliance between these two armies the army of Rakshasas and the army of Vanaras than between a God and a Rakshasa.
vrm.6.29 The Rakshasa Ravana spoke to Mahodara who was standing nearby as follows: “Bring me the spies here quickly.
vrm.6.29 Having thus made circumambulation to Ravana the excellent and the distinguished Rakshasa, the spies went to the place where Rama along with Lakshmana were there.
vrm.6.29 Accidentally, the deomons there were caught by Vibhishana, who said that the Rakshasa Shardula among them was wicked and got him alone seized.
vrm.6.30 Hearing from the spies about the arrival of Rama, the exceedingly strong man, Ravana became a little perturbed and spoke to Shardula as follows: O, Rakshasa! Your complexion is not so as it should be.
vrm.6.31 O, Rakshasa! Produce a head resembling Rama s along with a great bow and arrows created deceptively and present yourself before me.
vrm.6.31 Hearing Ravana s words, the Rakshasa Vidyujjihva said, Be it so
vrm.6.31 Bring Vidyujjihva, the Rakshasa of the cruel deed, by whom himself Raghava s head was brought back from the battle field.
vrm.6.31 Thereafter, the king Ravana spoke the following words to Vidyujjihva, the Rakshasa who had a large tongue and who was standing and moving closely.
vrm.6.31 Hearing Ravana s words, that Rakshasa deposited the cherished head in the vicinity of Seetha and soon disappeared from the site.
vrm.6.32 While Seetha was lamenting thus, a Rakshasa who was a royal guard approached his Lord there with his joined palms in salutation and cried as follows: “May you be victorious, O noble Lord!” he respectfully announced thus, thereby winning his pleasure and informed that Prahasta the army chief had come.
vrm.6.32 Hearing the aforesaid communication of the Rakshasa, Ravana left the garden of Ashoka and bestowed audience to his ministers.
vrm.6.33 Seeing the bewildered Seetha, a Rakshasa named Sarama an affectionate female companion then approached Seetha, her beloved Seetha, her beloved friend.
vrm.6.33 While Sarama, the Rakshasa was talking as aforesaid with Seetha a terrific sound was heard, from the troops engaged in the impending war.
vrm.6.34 The soft spoken Sarama, wiping her face, which got moist with tears, replied as follows to Seetha who was speaking as aforesaid: “If your opinion is like this, I shall go on that account, O, Seetha! Having grasped the feeling of the enemies, I shall return O, Seetha!” Speaking thus, Surama thereafter went to the vicinity of that Rakshasa and heard the conversation of Ravana who was with his ministers.
vrm.6.35 Hearing those word of Ravana whose maternal grandfather he was, the highly intelligent Rakshasa called Malyavan, answered him thus:
vrm.6.36 Ravana the Rakshasa on his part, assisted by his ministers having deliberated on the things to be examined, set about planning the defense of Lanka.
vrm.6.36 Thereafter, he assigned the eastern gate to the Rakshasa, Prahasta and the southern gate to Maha Parshva and Mhodara both of great prowess.
vrm.6.36 He place the Rakshasa Virupaksha, who was full of energy and courage, to be in the center of the fort, with a large number of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.37 Meanwhile, Rama the king of men and Sugreeva the Sovereign of Vanaras, Hanuman the son of Vayu, Jambavan the king of the Rikshas, Vibhishana the Rakshasa, Angada the son of Vali, Lakshmana, Sushena along with his kinsfolk, Mainda, Dvivida, Gaja, Gavaksha, Kumuda, Nala and Panasa, all having reached the enemy s territory, assembled to take counsel together.
vrm.6.37 "O, Rama! In these Rakshasas, a retinue of ten lacs each is near at hand for each Rakshasa.
vrm.6.38 Rama, who was followed by Lakshmana, having made up his mind to ascend Mount Suvela, spoke in a gentle and prime voice to Sugreeva and to Vibhishana who was the knower of what is right, a Rakshasa devoted to him who was experienced in counsel and a knower of prescribed rules as follows:
vrm.6.38 "We shall see Lanka the abode of that Rakshasa, Ravana the evil minded by whom my wife was taken away for the sake of his own death, by whom virtue was not understood, good character was not known and noble lineage was not seen and by whom that contemptible act was done with an inferior Rakshasa mind.
vrm.6.38 "My anger is increased on hearing the name of that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.40 For a moment, he paused and then with a fearless soul, he saw that Rakshasa, whom he regarded as a mere straw and thereafter spoke the following words harshly: "O, Rakshasa! I am a friend and a servant of Rama, the Lord of the world.
vrm.6.41 Calling to his mind the duty of the kings, Rama who was eager to undertake what was to be done next, in concurrence with Vibhishana, summoned Angada the son of Vali and spoke as follows: “Go my gentle Angada on my behalf and, passing thought the city of Lanka without fear and anxiety and Lanka without fear and anxiety and approaching Ravana the unfortunate Rakshasa devoid of sovereignty and who has lost his splendour because of his inclination to die admonish him in the following words:” “O, Ravana the Ranger of the Night! In your reckless arrogance, sages, Devas, Gandharvas, Apsaras, Nagas, Yakshas and kings have been oppressed by you.
vrm.6.41 “O, Rakshasa! Slain by me, you will attain the region of Gods, of all the great sages and all the royal sages.
vrm.6.41 “O, the worst Rakshasa! demonstrate the same courage and magic that you did employ in bearing Seetha away from me.
vrm.6.41 Surely, this illustrious Rakshasa will obtain the kingdom of Lanka, which will henceforth be free from troubles.
vrm.6.41 “You, without a knowledge of the self and a sinful Rakshasa having stupid followers around you, cannot indeed enjoy the kingdom even for a moment, by this unrighteousness.
vrm.6.41 “O, Rakshasa! Otherwise, get ready for a battle, by gathering courage and laying hold of your valour.
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.6.41 Hearing these harsh words from Angada the lion among the Vanaras, Ravana the Lord of the Rakshasa tribe was infuriated.
vrm.6.41 Foreseeing his own destruction, he became a desponded Rakshasa.
vrm.6.43 The Rakshasa Indrajit of immense energy fought with Angada the son of Vali, as the Rakshasa Andhaka fought with Shiva the Lord of destruction.
vrm.6.43 The Rakshasa with great fury, Vibhishana the younger brother of Ravana confronted with Shatrughna possessing fiery velocity in battle.
vrm.6.43 Gaja of great strength fought with a Rakshasa called Tapana and Nila too of great energy fought with Nikumbha.
vrm.6.43 Hanuman, the son of the wind god, ascended his chariot and soon overthrew it together with the Rakshasa, with the palm of his hand.
vrm.6.43 Pierced in the limbs by sharp arrows by Praghasa the swift handed Rakshasa, Sugreeva the Lord of Rakshasas immediately killed Praghasa who was appearing to swallow the Vanara troops with a Saptaparna tree.
vrm.6.43 Lakshmana with a terrific look, having tormented Virupaksha the Rakshasa with a shower of arrows, finally killed him with an arrow.
vrm.6.43 Then, Nikumbha the swift handed Rakshasa again wounded Nila by a hundred arrows in the battle and laughed continuously.
vrm.6.43 Retreating soon from the chariot, Vidyunmali the Rakshasa endowed with a skill, stood on the ground with a mace in his hand.
vrm.6.43 Then, the excellent Vanara, Sushena engulfed as he was with anger, seizing a very huge rock in his hands, chased that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.43 Struck by the thump of that rock, Vidyunmali the Rakshasa, his chest crushed, fell lifeless on the earth.
vrm.6.44 “You are a Rakshasa” said the Vanaras “You are a Vanara” said the Rakshasas and killed at each other in battle during that dreadful darkness.
vrm.6.44 Those strong Vanaras with a terrific rage leapt forward and tore asunder by their sharp teeth, the steeds with gold ornaments on their head, the serpentine banners and frightened the Rakshasa army.
vrm.6.44 Since all the living beings knew the supernatural powers of Indrajit in battle, they were pleased on seeing that highly gifted Rakshasa being defeated by Angada.
vrm.6.44 That Indrajit the son of Ravana, the sinful Rakshasa who had gone out of sight and was cruel in battle, rendered himself as invisible again and hurled forth sharp arrows, bright as lightning.
vrm.6.45 Struck down by that ferocious Rakshasa, who was able to change his shape at will, the hot blood gushed forth from both Rama and Lakshmana, as water from a spring.
vrm.6.47 Hanuman, Angada, Nila, Sushena, Kumuda, Nala, Gaja, Gavaksha, Panasa, Sanuprastha and the mighty Jambavan with Sunda, Rambha, Shatabali and Prithu all these Vanaras, armed with trees, reorganized their ranks, stood alert, surveyed the quarters of the sky up and down and on every side and, even if a grass stirred, they exclaimed, “It is a Rakshasa!”
vrm.6.50 "The son of my brother, that wicked youth of perverse soul in his Rakshasa cunning mind, has decived those two honourable fighters.
vrm.6.50 "These serpents, which took their base at, were none other than the sons of Kadru, with their sharp fangs, abundantly filled with poison, transformed into arrows, by the dint of sorcery by Indrajit the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.51 "Those very arrows, bright as fire, which in battle have taken the life of my enemies, have now been rendered void indeed!" Having spoken thus in furious tones, hissing like a snake, he addressed a Rakshasa called Dhumraksha who was seated amidst the Rakshasas and said.
vrm.6.51 As he mounted and advanced in an excellent chariot harnessed to mules, whose voices he emulated, Birds of ill omen in the sky obstructed that advancing Rakshasa of very terrible and fearful appearance.
vrm.6.51 Then, Dhumraksha, the highly terrible and strong Rakshasa, surrounded by a multitude of Rakshasas, eager to enter into combat, set out and beheld that army of a multitude of Vanaras, resembling a flood, protected by the arms of Rama.
vrm.6.52 Beholding the Rakshasa, Dhumraksha of terrible prowess coming forth, all the Vanaras waiting for the war, roared with joy.
vrm.6.52 The Rakshasa too were levelled down to the earth with trees by the Vanaras.
vrm.6.53 Polluted by anger, with long and burning sighs, he addressed the cruel and mighty Vajradamshtra, a Rakshasa as follows "O, warrior! Go ahead as the head of the Rakshasas and slay Rama the son of Dasaratha, as also Sugreeva and his Vanaras!" "So it be" answered the leader of the Rakshasas who was a conjurer and departed with many divisions of the army that surrounded him.
vrm.6.54 That unperplexed Rakshasa, seeing that tree falling on him, cut it into innumerable pieces which fell in heaps on earth.
vrm.6.54 Regaining his consciousness, Vajradamshtra the Rakshasa was very much enraged and hit Angada full on the chest with his mace.
vrm.6.54 Both the Vanara and the Rakshasa thus hit each other in that combat.
vrm.6.54 The Rakshasa too seized hold of a shield covered with the hide of a bull as well as a great beautiful sword decorated richly with a multitude of golden bells.
vrm.6.55 "This excellent Rakshasa is a chastiser, a protector and a leader in battle.
vrm.6.55 That Rakshasa, who had the shoulders of a lion and the agility of a tiger, disregarding those portents, rushed towards the battle field.
vrm.6.56 Laughing heartily that Hanuman, the son of Maruta the wind god and possessing a great splendour, leapt on the Rakshasa, causing the earth to shake as it were.
vrm.6.56 Seeing that rocky peak shatterd in the air by the Rakshasa s arrows and falling in pieces, Hanuman became mad with anger.
vrm.6.56 Struck with a tree by that high souled and enraged Hanuman, that Rakshasa fell down and died.
vrm.6.56 That great Vanara, born of Maruta having encountered and killed the Rakshasas, enjoyed the same renown as Vishnu when he overcame the mighty and terrific Rakshasa of immense power destroying his enemies in the forefront of the battle.
vrm.6.57 Hearing that command of Prahasta, the mighty leaders of the army assembled the forces in the abode of that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.57 Within a short while, that City of Lanka was filled with those terrific Rakshasa warriors, resembling Elephants and wielding various types of weaponry.
vrm.6.57 A vulture facing the south alighted on the top of the standard, croaking towards both of its sides and deprived the Rakshasa of his entire lustre.
vrm.6.58 Seeing Prahasta setting out with a martial ardour, Rama the conqueror of enemies, smiling, spoke to Vibhishana as follows: "Who is he with a very huge body, coming with a great speed along with a large army? O, the mighty armed! Tell me about this strong Rakshasa.
vrm.6.58 He is a Rakshasa of prowess, skilled in the use of mystic weapons and valiant.
vrm.6.58 He is the Rakshasa named Prahasta, the Army general of Ravana.
vrm.6.58 The ape Durmukha on his part, with a ready hand, uprooted a very large tree and crushed the Rakshasa Samunnata.
vrm.6.58 The Rakshasa Prahasta, who was hard to be subdued in battle, with full of anger, tormented the Vanaras by an immense avalanche of arrows in that great combat.
vrm.6.58 Being unable to restrain the series of arrows hurled at him by that evil minded Rakshasa, nila received them with closed eyes.
vrm.6.58 Thereafter the greatly enraged Nila quickly broke the bow of Prahasta the evil minded Rakshasa and shouted again and again.
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.6.59 Seizing a mountain top with its many trees and ridges, Sugreeva hurled it on Ravana the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.59 Ravana the Rakshasa, taking up an arrow, charged with the missile presided over by the Agni, aimed at Nila who had perched on the tip of his standard.
vrm.6.59 Meanwhile, Hanuma approaching Rama spoke the following words: You have to punish the Rakshasa by climbing my back, as Vishnu on Garuda in order to fight with the Enemy of Gods.
vrm.6.59 Even when struck by that Rakshasa with his arrows in the battle, the vigour of Hanuman, who was endowed with native strength, increased still further.
vrm.6.60 The Rakshasa sleeps for nine, seven, ten or eight months.
vrm.6.60 Even with all their strength, the Rakshasas could not stand upright before the breathing winds of Kumbhakarna, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.60 Some others assembled their strength to awaken that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.60 Though smitten by missiles fastened with ropes on all sides, the giant bodied Rakshasa did not wake.
vrm.6.60 That mighty Rakshasa, being awake, yawned, heaving a sigh, like unto a tempest arising from a mountain.
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 Go and gratify your brother!" Hearing his brother s wish, Kumbhakarna the inviolable Rakshasa of great prowess, uttering "so be it", leapt up from his couch.
vrm.6.61 Seeing that paramount Rakshasa, whose appearance was in the form of a mountain and looking like Lord Narayana taking strides across space, Rama became vigilant.
vrm.6.61 Seeing the army running away and the Rakshasa increasing his body, Rama with a surprise, spoke to vibhishana as follows: "This eminent Rakshasa, appearing as a mountain, with a diadem and tawmy eyes and looking like a cloud with a flash of lightning, is seen in Lanka.
vrm.6.61 "Who is he with such a colossal body? Tell me whether he is a Rakshasa or a Pisacha.
vrm.6.61 There is no other Rakshasa, corresponding to the size of his body.
vrm.6.61 The strength of the other Rakshasa chiefs is attributable to boons.
vrm.6.61 "Soon after his birth, this great souled Rakshasa, afflicted as he was by hunger, ate thousands of living creatures.
vrm.6.61 "Hearing the roar of that Kumbhakarna, the Rakshasa, wh was howling loudly, the grigthened people were further frightened.
vrm.6.61 "On that single day, this male Rakshasa, having starved for six months, will wander over the earth and eat the human race with his month wide open, like an augmented fire.
vrm.6.61 "This Kumbhakarna the male Rakshasa with a terrific prowess started his tent.
vrm.6.65 Adorned with all ornaments to all his limbs and with a spike in his hand, that Rakshasa shone like Narayana, enthusiastic to take the three long strides.
vrm.6.66 Seeing them running away, Angada the prince spoke to Nala, Neela, Gavaksha and the mighty Kumuda as follows: “Where do you go, forgetting your own dignities as also nobilities of birth and trembling with fear like common Vanaras?” “O auspicious Vanaras! Please return! Why do you so fully guard your lives? This Rakshasa is not competent for a combat.
vrm.6.66 Many of the foremost among the Vanaras lay on the ground, bathed in blood as they were, fallen like trees with crimson flowers, when tossed up by the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.66 While that Rakshasa was killing some warriors of Vanaras playfully, some others ran away by the same route, by which they earlier crossed the ocean.
vrm.6.66 "For us, it is enough of this terrific battle with Kumbhakarna, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.67 Making the earth dampened with flesh and blood, that Rakshasa, like an excited fire at the time of dissolution, strolled among that army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 Getting his consciousness, that mighty Rakshasa threw down Angada by tightening his fist with a scorn.
vrm.6.67 What will you do with these common beings? O Rakshasa! You bear up against the falling of this one mountain being hurled by me.
vrm.6.67 Kumbhakarna the Rakshasa and the brother of Ravana, having his large body bathed in blood, frightful in appearance, vomiting blood with rage, and looking like a mound of black antimony shone akin to a cloud with an evening twilight.
vrm.6.67 With his face directed towards the battle front, Kumbhakarna the terrific Rakshasa made up his mind to continue his combat.
vrm.6.67 Having his entire body besmeared with flesh, marrow and blood together with wreaths of tangled viscera hung over his ears, the Rakshasa with his very sharp teeth, rained spikes on the Vanaras, like Yama, the god of death, risen to power at the end of the world cycle.
vrm.6.67 Tormented by that weapon of Lakshmana, that Rakshasa destroyed it completely.
vrm.6.67 Then, that terrific Rakshasa, with a thunderous noise of multiple clouds, spoke the following words disrespectfully to Lakshmana.
vrm.6.67 To that Rakshasa in battle, who has given his opinion thus, abounding in enology, Lakshmana as though bursting with laughter, spoke the following extremely terrific words: "O brave Rakshasa! You are telling that while you show your prowess, the heroes like Indra and others feel unbearable it is true.
vrm.6.67 Hearing in this manner, that mighty Kumbhakarna the Rakshasa, brushing aside Lakshmana and crossing him, ran, as though he is causing an earth quake, towards Rama.
vrm.6.67 "If we do in that way, that evil minded Rakshasa would be harassed by the huge weight, making him to crawl on the floor and cannot kill the other Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 Seeing the Vanaras shaken down, Rama on his part understanding that he was enraged, jumped up speedily towards the Rakshasa and took an excellent bow.
vrm.6.67 The heroic Rama, enraged with red hot eyes, as though he was scorching the enemy with his looks, walked with speed, causing delight to all the leaders of the Vanara troops, who were tormented with the fear of Kumbhakarna and quickly marched towards the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.67 Even after struck by them, whose speed was equal to a thunderbolt, that Rakshasa was neither shaken nor afflicted.
vrm.6.67 Then, flourishing that hammer which was smeared with blood and which can frighten the great army of Devas, in terrific speed, that Rakshasa scared away the army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 Thereupon, taking a great missile called Vayavya, Rama hurled it on the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.67 Seeing Kumbhakarna with his arms chopped off, abruptly with a roar, coming upon him and taking two sharp arrows with a shape of a half moon each, Rama chopped off the feet of the Rakshasa in that battle.
vrm.6.67 Rama discharged against the Rakshasa, that arrow, whose shaft was inlaid with diamonds and gold, which was shining as the dazzling sun and fire set ablaze, and which vied with the speed of Indra s thunderbolt.
vrm.6.67 That Rakshasa s head, equal in size to a mountain, struck by Rama s arrow, fell down.
vrm.6.67 Then, that colossal Rakshasa of a great splendour fell into the sea.
vrm.6.68 Having thus lamented very much piteously in various ways on coming to know that Kumbhakarna, his younger brother and the enemy of Indra having been killed, Ravana the ten headed Rakshasa, whose inner feelings were agitated, even sank down, extremely disturbed.
vrm.6.69 Narantaka, a single Rakshasa, equal to so many Rakshasas, struck the armies of mokeys with his javelin, having the sun’s splendour and they fell down on the earth.
vrm.6.69 Narantaka, a single Rakshasa, equal to so many Rakshasas, struck the armies of mokeys with his javelin, having the sun’s splendour and they fell down on the earth.
vrm.6.69 After seeing Narantaka, the vastly splendoured Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras spoke thus, to Angada, the valiant prince, having a prowess equal to Indras’ as follows: “Go out and quickly detach the lives of this valiant Rakshasa, who is riding a Horse and consuming the army of his enemies.
vrm.6.70 Noticing Angada being surrounded by the three Rakshasa warriors, Hanuma and Neela went there.
vrm.6.70 When that Devantaka the mighty chief of Rakshasa warriors and the enemy of Devas was killed in battle, the enraged Trishira showered a terrible rain of sharp pointed arrows on Neela’s chest.
vrm.6.70 Unable to bear that roar, the Rakshasa jumped up and struck Hanuma with his fist.
vrm.6.70 Springing suddenly after regaining his consciousness, that Rakshasa, whose colour resembled his consciousness, that Rakshasa, whose colour resembled an evening cloud, struck that Rishabha, the son of Varuna.
vrm.6.70 That terrific mace, reaching the body of Mahaparshva, the fierce Rakshasa, the enemy of Devas, sacrificial rites and Brahmanas, broke his chest.
vrm.6.70 When that Rakshasa depleted his strength, burst open his eyes, with his long life gone away and fallen down on the ground, the army of Rakshasas ran away.
vrm.6.71 That Rakshasa, who was arrogant of his youth, frightened that army of Vanara warriors, as an enraged lion frightens a herd of Deers.
vrm.6.71 That Rakshasa hurled those arrows towards Lakshmana.
vrm.6.71 That valiant Lakshmana, by a flat jointed arrow released fully, struck it on the forehead of that excellent Rakshasa.
vrm.6.71 That arrow, sunken into the forehead of that terrible Rakshasa, smeared with blood, appeared like a serpent king on a mountain.
vrm.6.71 The Rakshasa, tormented by Lakshmana’s arrow, then trembled violently as when the terrific town gate of Tripura City, built of gold, silver and iron in the sky, air and earth by maya for the asuras was struck by Shiva’s arrow.
vrm.6.71 That Rakshasa of great strength, recovering his breath, reasoningly reflected as follows: “Well! By flying down an arrow, you have become a commendable enemy for me.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that arrow charged with a mystic missile of fire, Atikaya the Rakshasa then released the awful arrow charged with the solar missile.
vrm.6.71 Atikaya, that mighty Rakshasa, though deluged with a flood of arrows, was not agitated in battle because of the inviolability of his armour.
vrm.6.71 Free from flurry, that Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra, released those arrows, exactly aiming at that Rakshasa, for the purpose of killing him.
vrm.6.71 When the dangerous Rakshasa with the terrific strength was killed, the multitude of Vanaras then were endowed with a great delight, with their faces looking like full blown lotuses and worshipped Lakshmana who got his desire fulfilled.
vrm.6.72 “All of those valiant Rakshasa warriors set out for battle, at my command, were killed by those exceptionally mighty Vanaras.
vrm.6.72 “I do not find any Rakshasa, who can destroy the valiant Rama along with Lakshmana, Sugreeva and Vibhishana accompanied by their army in battle now.
vrm.6.73 They could not see there, that Indrajit the Rakshasa, the enemy of Indra, remaining concealed by his conjuring trick.
vrm.6.73 With lances, spikes and sharp arrows, charged with sacred texts, Indrajit the excellent Rakshasa struck all those foremost of Vanaras, namely Hanuman, Sugreeva, Angada, Gandhamadana, Jambavan, Sushena, Vegadarshina, Mainda, Dvivida, Nila, Gavaksha, Gavaya, Kesari, Hariloma, Vidyuddamshtra, Suryanana, Jyotimukha, a Vanara called Dadhimukha, Pavakaksha, Nala as also a Vanara named Kumuda.
vrm.6.75 To those Rakshasa leaders, who were preparing for the battle and emitting lion’s roars, that night became a night of final dissolution presided over by Rudra, the lord of destruction.
vrm.6.76 In the battle field, the Vanaras, seizing hold of trees, hurled them against the Rakshasa chiefs.
vrm.6.76 Shonitaksha, the valiant and the powerful Rakshasa, chopped off the trees uplifted and hurled by Dvivida and Mainda with his mace in the midway itself.
vrm.6.76 Beholding his brother defeated in that great battle, Mainda there on his part, taking a large rock, rushed with speed to attack the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.76 While that mighty Mainda hurled that rock towards the Rakshasa, Kumbha broke that rock into pieces with his five shining arrows.
vrm.6.76 Hence, exhibit your prowess, O Rakshasa of great intellect and see my exploits.
vrm.6.76 Hence, you are now the foremost in strength and heroism among the Rakshasa folk.
vrm.6.76 “Let the created beings see your great wonderful fight with me in the battle field today, as they saw that fight between Indra and Shambara, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.76 “O valiant Rakshasa! Since you look tired after performing your martial duty, I did not kill you, with a fear of public censure.
vrm.6.76 Thus struck with Sugreeva’s fist, that Rakshasa fell down suddenly, as the planet Mars, of splendid rays, would drop down from the sky accidentally.
vrm.6.77 Eventhough he was being carried off in that way by that Rakshasa, Hanuma the son of Marut, struck him with his thunderbolt like fist.
vrm.6.78 The long whip then slipped down from the hands of Makaraksha’s charioteer and the flag staff of that Rakshasa also suddenly fell down by the will of the province.
vrm.6.79 Seeing Rama thus interrupting the Rakshasas, Makaraksha, the Rakshasa, engrossed in a fire of anger, spoke the following words:
vrm.6.79 "O Rakshasa! Why are you boasting yourself with so many unworthy words, in vain? Without fighting in the battle field, it is well nigh impossible for you to attain victory with the strength of a mere speech.
vrm.6.79 That battle raged furiously, on their meeting each other there, between Makaraksha the son of Khara the Rakshasa and Rama the son of Dasaratha.
vrm.6.79 In the battle, that Rakshasa broke the multitude of arrows discharged by Rama.
vrm.6.79 Rama snapped off, in many ways, the arrows released by the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.79 Then, the long armed Rama, full of anger in battle, broke off the bow of the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.79 That Makaraksha the Rakshasa, bereft of his chariot, stood on the ground.
vrm.6.79 That Rakshasa, standing on the ground, took into his hand, a spike, which created fright among all living beings and whose splendour was equal to the fire at the end of the world.
vrm.6.79 Brandishing that flaming great spike, that enraged Rakshasa hurled it against that great souled rama.
vrm.6.79 Seeing that spike destroyed, Makaraksha the Rakshasa, rising his fist, called out to Rama, saying "Wait, Wait!".
vrm.6.79 Struck by that missile by Rama, the Rakshasa with his heart split open, fell down dead then and there, in the battle field.
vrm.6.79 Thrilled with delight, the Devas watched that Rakshasa, the son of Khara, destroyed by the flights of Rama s arrows and resembling a mountain shattered, after struck by lightning.
vrm.6.80 Having spread on the ground around all the sides of the sacrificial fire with other weapons along with lances, the Rakshasa seized hold of the neck of a live Goat, entirely black and consigned it to the fire.
vrm.6.80 Then, Rama spoke to that Lakshmana, who was endowed with auspicious bodily marks as follows: "You ought not to kill all the Rakshasas on earth, merely for the sake of a single Rakshasa.
vrm.6.80 "On seeing this Rakshasas, the leaders of mokey troops will forcibly kill this petty Rakshasa, who is skilled in conjuring tricks and whose chariot remains invisible.
vrm.6.81 While those Vanaras were seeing, Rakshasa began to strike that woman who was placed in the chariot by the dint of his conjuring trick and who was crying Rama"! Rama!" On seeing her seized by the hair Hanuma the son of Marut was confounded with affliction and shed tears, in agony from his eyes.
vrm.6.81 On seeing Seetha with all her charming limbs, the beloved wife of Rama, Hanuma angrily addressed the foolowing harsh words to Indrajit: "O evil minded one! Born in a dynasty of Brahmanical sages, but belonging to Rakshasa race, you touched a lock of her hair, for your hair, for your own ruin.
vrm.6.81 "O cruel, vulgar and mean fellow! O wicked Rakshasa of sinful prowess! O pitiless fellow! Woe be to you, of sinful conduct, in whom such a resolve has taken place.
vrm.6.81 O Rakshasa, desrving of death! By your act, you indeed fell into my hands.
vrm.6.82 Thereupon, while being propitiated by that Rakshasa on reaching sacrificial ground, the sacrificial fire then blazed up on consuming the oblations of flesh and blood.
vrm.6.83 “O valiant one! While you were in exile, faithful to the command of your father, your wife who was more beloved than life itself, was stolen away by a Rakshasa.
vrm.6.85 Hearing those words of Vibhishana, Rama, agonized as he was with grief, could not understand clearly what was spoken by that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.85 "A boon was given by Brahma to that intelligent Rakshasa as follows: "O Indrajit! That enemy of yours, who strikes while you are marching with your bow drawn, and while you have not arrived at Nikumbhila, or even while you have not offered oblations to the sacred fire, will prove to be the cause of your killing.
vrm.6.85 Hearing the words of Indrajit, Rama then spoke the following words:"O Vibhishana of true prowess! I know the conjuring trick of that terrific Rakshasa.
vrm.6.87 "Thereupon, this Rakshasa becomes invisible to any one, kills some enemies in battle and binds some with his excellent arrows.
vrm.6.87 "O Rakshasa! You are born and brought up here.
vrm.6.87 "O Indrajit, the Rakshasa! The ruthlessness thus shown by you and the manliness exhibited by you in bringing Lakshmana here could be possible only by you, our own kindred.
vrm.6.87 Hearing the words of Indrajit, his brother s son, Vibhishana replied: "O Rakshasa! Why do you speak perversely, as though you are not aware of my nature.
vrm.6.87 Even if I am born in a Rakshasa race, which does cruel acts, my nature is goodness, which is prime virtue of human beings and it is not of the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.87 "O Rakshasa! You can talk to me as you like, since you are arrogant, foolish, indisciplined and caught, as you are, in the noose of Death.
vrm.6.88 “O Rakshasa! It has been proclaimed by you about the successful conclusion of your tasks, eventhough it is difficult to achieve them.
vrm.6.88 “O Rakshasa! Having reached the range of your arrows, I am standing before you.
vrm.6.88 “O Rakshasa! Without performing that act, why do you boast yourself here? Perform that act by which I can believe your brag.
vrm.6.88 “O Rakshasa! Heroes who come to battle do not strike like this.
vrm.6.88 Loosing their arrows faultlessly, gracefully and easily in a wonderful way, both the man and the Rakshasa carried on a tumultuous and terrific war.
vrm.6.89 Why do you stand idle?" "At the end of this war, if this sinful Rakshasa is killed, the remaining army is as good as killed, except Ravana.
vrm.6.89 The valiant Nikumbha, the mighty Kumbhakarna, Kumbha, the Rakshasa called Dhumraksha, Jambumali, Mahamali, the highly swift Ashaniprabha, Suptaghna, Yajnakopa, a Rakshasa named Vajradamshtra, Samhadri, Vikata the destroyer of enemies, Tapana, Manda, Praghaasa, Praghasa, Prajangha, Jangha, Agniketu who was difficult to be conquered, Agniketu, the valiant Rashmiketu, vidyujjihva, Dvijihva, Suryashatru, Akampana, Suparshva, Chakramali, Kampana and the mighty Devantaka were also killed.
vrm.6.90 Indrajit, the Rakshasa, who was endowed with extraordinary energy, standing on the ground his Horses having been killed was very much enraged and blazed with spirit.
vrm.6.90 Seeing Indrajit seated in the chariot, Lakshmana, the mighty Vanaras and Vibhishana the Rakshasa then were very much surprised on recalling the alacrity of the intelligent Indrajit.
vrm.6.90 Thus tormented in battle by Indrajit the Rakshasa, that Lakshmana then quickly stretching the bow, pierced him in return with five arrows, in battle, in Indrajit’s face holding beautiful ear rings.
vrm.6.90 While that Rakshasa of sinful deeds is having been killed, the illustrious Indra the ruler of Gods along with all the great sages were rejoiced.
vrm.6.90 While that Rakshasa of cruel deeds was killed, a deluge of flowers rained along with showers of praises.
vrm.6.92 Nay, even the three worlds!" "Now, I shall hear the hue and cry of the Rakshasa maidens in the gynaecium, even as one would hear the roar of a troop of female Elephants in a mountain cave.
vrm.6.92 Filled with sorrow and lamenting, Seetha said to herself as follows: "From the manner in which this fellow himself is rushing towards me in fury, I fear the evil minded Rakshasa is going to kill me, to make me husband less, even though I have a husband".
vrm.6.92 "Otherwise, that vulgar Rakshasa might have killed those brothers, Rama and Lakshmana, the foremost of men, today in battle, because of me.
vrm.6.92 Otherwise, the terrific Rakshasa of a sinful resolve, having not been able to kill Rama and Lakshmana, is going to kill, me, because of the grief over his son s death.
vrm.6.92 Seeing Seetha miserably weeping in that manner like Rohini the deity presiding over a constellation of this name, fallen under the sway of the planet Mars, when away of the Moon god her husband, a minister called Suparshva, a good natured, upright and highly intelligent Rakshasa, even though restrained by other ministers, spoke the following words Ravana, the foremost of Rakshasas: "O Ravana, the younger brother of Kubera himself! How do you wish to kill Seetha, abandoning your righteousness, in a bout of anger?" "O valiant king of Rakshasas! Why are you thinking of destroying a lady, ever since you completed the vow of celibacy essential for a study of the Vedic lore and were devoted to your own duty?"
vrm.6.93 A hundred Vanara chiefs rushed towards each single Rakshasa in the battle, even as Birds would rush towards a tree laden with fruits.
vrm.6.94 For his own destruction, Ravana the Rakshasa brought that Seetha.
vrm.6.94 "Seeing that instance of Rama killing single handedly Viradha the Rakshasa, who was yearning for Seetha, is enough indeed to convince Ravana of Rama s strength and ability" "In Janasthana, Rama killed fourteen thousand Rakshasas who were doing terrific feats, with his arrows resembling tongues of fire.
vrm.6.94 "As a result of the bad behaviour of Ravana, the wicked Rakshasa with an evil disposition of mind, this terrific havoc with grief occurred.
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 When Ravana the Rakshasa was sallying forth for the battle, the following evil phenomena, predicting his death, appeared in the battle field.
vrm.6.96 While those Rakshasas, thus defeated by Sugreeva, falling on the floor and then roaring, get diminished in number from all sides, the indomitable Virupaksha the Rakshasa, holding a bow, pronouncing his name by himself, descended from his chariot and mounted the back of an Elephant.
vrm.6.96 Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, when he was struck severely with sharp arrows by that Rakshasa, shouted loudly.
vrm.6.96 Descending quickly from his wounded Elephant, that valiant Rakshasa then seizing hold of his sword from a shield made of a bull s hide and advancing in rapid paces, facing towards Sugreeva his enemy, approached him, who stood firm, threatening him as it were.
vrm.6.96 Wounded by the blow of the sword of that strong Rakshasa, Sugreeva became as though unconscious on the ground, for a moment.
vrm.6.96 Then, bouncing up suddenly in that great battle, Sugreeva, tightening his fist, brought it down on the Rakshasa s chest violently.
vrm.6.96 Feeling enraged, when struck by the blow of that fist, Virupaksha the Rakshasa brought down the armour of Sugreeva by his sword at the battle front.
vrm.6.96 Setting himself free from that slap, which was about to be raised by Sugreeva skillfully, Virupaksha the Rakshasa struck Sugreeva on the chest with his fist.
vrm.6.96 Then, seeing that Rakshasa escaping his blow, Sugreeva the Vanara king for his part, very much enraged.
vrm.6.97 "O the brave Rakshasa! Destroy the army of our enemies.
vrm.6.97 Emboldened by the words of his master, that mighty Rakshasa, with full of energy, destroyed the Vanaras by dint of his own valour.
vrm.6.97 Seizing hold of a large and terrific rock, which looked like a mountain, Sugreeva who was endowed with a great energy, hurled it with an aim to kill the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.97 That rock, broken to a thousand pieces by that Rakshasa with a multitude of his arrows, forthwith fell down on earth, like a flock of frightened Vultures.
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 Then the highly fast Mahodara the Rakshasa took hold of a sword and a shield, lying not very far.
vrm.6.98 That Rakshasa struck down the heads of Vanara chiefs from their trunks, as wind would throw down a fruit from its stalk.
vrm.6.98 Moreover, that Rakshasa very quickly chopped off the arms of some Vanaras with his arrows and struck down the region of the ribs of others.
vrm.6.98 Seeing his army depressed on being tormented by the Rakshasa, Angada who was endowed with a great impetuosity, exhibited his tempo like an ocean on full moon days.
vrm.6.98 Firmly holding that iron rod, which shone like the rays of the sun, with both hands and turning it around with force, Angada son of Vali, his eyes red with anger, hurled it on that Mahaparshva the Rakshasa, who stood at a distance, with an intention to kill him.
vrm.6.98 Hurled by the mighty Angada, that iron rod for its part, knocked the bow with the arrow fitted to it, from the Rakshasa s hand and also his helmet.
vrm.6.98 Extremely enraged, the Rakshasa hurled that stainless and strong axe, which had been washed in oil and which was made of steel, on Angada.
vrm.6.98 Knowing the vital parts of the body, Angada pounced his fist, which invaded like a thunderbolt, on the boson of the Rakshasa, in the vicinity of his breasts.
vrm.6.99 Striking down Rama s missile, that Ravana, who was stupefied with anger, employed another exceedingly terrific missile presided over by Rakshasa forces.
vrm.6.99 Possessed by a missile presided over by Rakshasa forces, that Rama endowed with a great strength and resembling the god of fire, released a missile presided over by the god of fire.
vrm.6.100 Ravana, who was endowed with extraordinary splendour, started to release another cruel and terrific missile built by Maya the Rakshasa, on Rama.
vrm.6.100 "O Lakshmana, exalter of your own strength! As Vibhishana was rescued by you in this way, this spear, on letting off Vibhishana the Rakshasa, is being hurled on you now.
vrm.6.100 "That sinful Rakshasa, for whose sake, this army of Vanaras has been brought by me, Sugreeva has been anointed on the throne after killing Vali and for whose sake the ocean has been crossed and a bridge built on it, has come within the range of my sight in the battle field now.
vrm.6.102 Then, occupying another chariot, Ravana the king of Rakshasas rushed towards Rama, even as Rahu the seizer Rakshasa rushes towards the sun.
vrm.6.102 Then ensued a tumultuous and thrilling battle, between the great armed Rama and Ravana, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.102 Being overwhelmed by Ravana the Rakshasa in the battle front, Rama could not fit his arrows to his bow.
vrm.6.102 "Wait, I will kill you with the spear now, O Rama!" Saying so, that Rakshasa hurled that spear.
vrm.6.107 Having their hearts captivated in seeing those two warriors, a human being and a Rakshasa, both in full strength engaged in a fight, all for their part experienced a great wonder.
vrm.6.108 When Ravana, the cruel Rakshasa and the terror of all the worlds, was killed, a great rejoice filled the hearts of Devas and Charanas.
vrm.6.109 "With prowess and power for its expanded flames, sighs for its smoke and his native strength for its glowing heat, the blazing fire in the shape of Ravana the Rakshasa has been extingushed in the battle field by the rainy cloud in the shape of Rama.
vrm.6.109 "With the Rakshasas for its tail hump and horn and fickleness for its ears and eyes, the bull in the shape of Ravana the Rakshasa, the conqueror of its enemies, which vied with the wind in energy, is lying dead, struck down by a tiger in the shape of Rama, the ruler of the earth.
vrm.6.109 "The Rakshasa, who had never been conquered before in battles, by even all the Gods combined or by Indra himself, has been conquered, on confronting you in the battle field, as the sea breaks up, on reaching the shore.
vrm.6.110 "O the excellent Rakshasa! Your act of following your own free will, may not be the reason for your destruction, either for, all is being run by a divine power, struck and ruined by the divine power.
vrm.6.111 "As though fast asleep, why are you not replying to me, the granddaughter of Sumali the Rakshasa who was clever, endowed with extraordinary prowess and never retreated in battles, tormented with grief as I am?" "Arise, arise! Why are you lying down, though subjected to a fresh insult? The sun s rays have penetrated deep into Lanka today, without any fear.
vrm.6.111 "This Rakshasa may be full of unrighteousness and falsehood.
vrm.6.114 Hearing that Seetha had arrived after living long in the abode of a Rakshasa, Rama was filled with joy, indignation and felt miserable too all the three emotions at the same time.
vrm.6.115 "The wrong done to you, when you were deserted from me, in that you were taken away by a fickle minded Rakshasa, which was ordained by the destiny, has been corrected by me as a human being.
vrm.6.115 "O Seetha! Otherwise, set your mind either on Shatrughna or on Sugreeva or on Vibhishana the Rakshasa or according to your own comfort.
vrm.6.118 "Separated from you, this miserable and helpless lady, was taken away by Ravana the Rakshasa, who was arrogant of his valour, from a lonely hermitage.
vrm.6.118 Seetha", whose mind was directed towards you, ignored that Rakshasa even though allured and frightened through various means.
vrm.6.122 Hearing the words of Rama, the Vanara chiefs, the Vanaras, Vibhishana the Rakshasa and all of them there, with their joined palms, spoke as follows: “We also wish to proceed to Ayodhya.
vrm.6.123 “Here, Kumbhakarna and Prahasta the Rakshasa were killed.
vrm.6.123 "Here was killed a Rakshasa called Vikata by Angada.
vrm.6.123 Makaraksha, the most difficult Rakshasa to be attacked, was struck down by me in this battle field.
vrm.6.123 "Here, Vidyujjihva, the Rakshasa was a terrific appearance, was killed.
vrm.6.123 Surya shatru was killed and another Rakshasa called Brahma shatru was too killed.
vrm.6.123 "O lady of beautiful complexion! Here is the region, known as Panchavati, so called because it consists of five banyan trees where Khara the Rakshasa was killed by me with straight going arrows, as also his brothers, Dushana and the mighty Trishiras.
vrm.6.126 "In front of them, even as they were going in that dense forest, there appeared Viradha, a Rakshasa, uttering forth a very loud roar.
vrm.6.126 "Thereafter, a female Rakshasa called Surpanakha sought the presence of Rama.
vrm.6.126 Disguised in the form of a deer studded with precious stones, a terrific Rakshasa by name, Maricha, a follower of Ravana, allured Seetha.
vrm.6.126 Ravana", the Rakshasa, seized Seetha, even as a planet like Mars would obscure the constellation, Rohini.
vrm.6.126 “They met, in that great forest, a Rakshasa by name Kabandha.
vrm.6.127 "In the same aerial car are the valiant Rama and Lakshmana, the brothers, along with Seetha, the immensely brilliant Sugreeva and Vibhishana the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.127 Seeing that Bharata, speaking thus with affection with his brother, Vibhishana the Rakshasa and the Vanaras shed their tears.
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.7.1 How was Sakra vanquished by him, and how also did he obtain the boon ?And how was the son owerful, and not his sire Ravana? How could that Rakshasa, surpassing his sire, conquer Sakra in mighty encounter, and how did he obtain the boon ?O foremost of anchorets, do thou to day unfold all this unto oe, who ask for the same.
vrm.7.5 Hearing this, the Rakshasa brothers, filled with delight, and with their followers, went to the palace and set up in the same, having a strong wall and a moat, abounding in hundreds of golden edifices.
vrm.7.5 On her he begot, do thou understand, whom Vajramushti, and Virupaksha, and the Rakshasa Durmukha, and Suptaghna, and Yajnakopa, and Matta and Unmatta ;and, O Rama, there was also born a lovely daughter of Sundari, Anala.
vrm.7.5 O mighty king, do thou, gradually, know the offspring that were begot by Sumali on Ketumati, Prahasta, and Kampana, and Vikata, and Kalikamukha, and Dhumraksha, and Danda, and the redoubtable Suparswa, and Sanhradi, and Praghasa, and the Rakshasa, Bhasakarna, and Raka, and Pushpotkata, and Kaikasi of luminous smiles, and Kumbhinasi these are known as the offspring of Sumali.
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 Thus accosted by the deities, that god of gods Janardana who bringeth fear unto foes cheering up the Devas, said unto them, I know the Rakshasa, Sukesa, as flushed with the boon bestowed by Isana.
vrm.7.6 And at the command of Kala, terrible evil omens foreshadowing the destruction of the Rakshasa chiefs began to aise on the earth well as in the sky.
vrm.7.6 Creatures were one after another seen to drop down ;and mighty swarms of vultures, with mouths belching foth flames, began to wheel over the Rakshasa, like unto Kala himself.
vrm.7.6 And the Rakshasa hosts, struck by the wind produced by the wings of Suparna, with their pennons swinging to and fro and their weapons scattered about, quaked like the blue summit of a mountain with its crags tossed about.
vrm.7.7 And as locusts flood a field, knats throng about a flame, gad flies cluster around a pot of honey, or makaras range the deep, so the shafts shot by the bows of the Rakshasa, having the energy of the thunder bolt and endowed with the velocity of the wind or thought, pierce Hari as if at the universal dissolution.
vrm.7.7 And dashing away the Rakshasa ranks with his arrowy shower, even as the wind aroused dasheth away a downpour, that best of male beings blew his mighty conch Panchajanya.
vrm.7.7 And even as an elephant pursueth a tiger, a tiger a wolf, a wolf a dog, a dog a cat, a cat a snake, or a snake a rat, so the mighty Vishnu pursueth the Rakshasa host ;and others, struck down by him, measure their lengths on the ground.
vrm.7.7 And agitated by the arrows of Narayana, with their senses bewildered by the blares of the conch, the broken Rakshasa forces made for Lanka.
vrm.7.7 And on the Rakshasa army having been broken in consequence of the beating it got at the hands of Narayana, Sumali with showers of shafts resisted Hari in the encounter; and as a mist envelopes the Sun, he envoloped him with his arrows.
vrm.7.7 And fired with rage, that Rakshasa, inlated with insolence on account of his strength, setting up a tremendous roar, darted at his antagonist in the conflict, thereby seeming to revive the Rakshasas.
vrm.7.7 And as an elephant lourishes its trunk, that Rakshasa, lifting up his arm adorned with ornaments, began to roar from rapture, like a mass of clouds lighted up with lightning.
vrm.7.7 And Vishnu cut of the head flaming with ear rings of the charioteer of the shouting Sumali ;and thereat the horses of that Rakshasa aimlessly strayed hither and thither.
vrm.7.8 Thereat the dart discharged by the hand of Govinda like unto the Dart discharged by the hand of Skanda,rushing towards the Rakshasa like a meteor coursing towards the Anjana mountain, descended on the spacious chest of the lord of Rakshasas decked with the weight of a chain, even as the thunder clap bursts at the summit of a mountain.
vrm.7.8 And now there arose a mighty tumult in the sky of Excellent! Excellent And having struck Vishnu, the Rakshasa also hit Garura.
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 O best of the Raghus, these Rakshasas of celebrated prowess, related to the race of Salakantankata, remained under the leadership of the Rakshasa Sumali.
vrm.7.8 And that powerful Rakshasa, Sumali, afflicted with the fear of Vishnu, along with his sons and grand sons for a long time ranged the nether regions, and the lord of riches resided in Lanka.
vrm.7.9 After a while the Rakshasa named Sumali, coming up from the nether regions, began to range all over the earth.
vrm.7.9 And there the Rakshasa of unrivalled prowess along with his younger brother carried on austeities and thus gratified that lord the great father.
vrm.7.10 O Rakshasa, O sinless one, those heads of thine which have been offered as sacrifices and which have sunk into the fire, shall again be thine.
vrm.7.10 And inasmuch as in spite of thy having been born in the Rakshasa race, thy thoughts, O destroyer of enemies, do not originate in sin, I confer on the immotality.
vrm.7.10 Considering what this Rakshasa did when he had not obtained any boon whatever, if he obtain one now he shall eat up the three worlds.
vrm.7.12 Then that Rakshasa bestowed his sister, the Rakshasi Surpanakha, on that lord of the Danavas and king of the Kalakas Vidyujjihva.
vrm.7.13 And the Rakshasa caused a splendid and delightful pile to be built, adorned all round with pillars decked with gold and crystal, having stairs composed of Lapises,furnished with networks of small bells, set with ivory gateways, and containing daises dight with diamonds and crystal, elegant throughout, and enduring, like unto a goodly cave of Maru.
vrm.7.13 And that Rakshasa spread destruction, even as an elephant sporting agitates a river, as the wind bringeth down trees, or as the thunder bolt riveth mountain peaks.
vrm.7.14 And then there took place an encounter between the Yakshas and the Rakshasas ;and therein the councillors of the Rakshasa were smitten fiercely.
vrm.7.14 Of the councillors of the Rakshasa chief, each coped with a thousand Yakshas.
vrm.7.14 And when, O Rama, that Rakshasa was prevented, he did not stay.
vrm.7.15 And then Manibhadra dealt the Rakshasa a blow with his mace ;and thereat Dhumraksha smit at the head fell down senseless on the ground.
vrm.7.15 And then, O Rama, the Yaksha and Rakshasa, smiting each other in mighty encounter, did not get bewildered or experience fatigue.
vrm.7.15 And then the Rakshasa king entered upon Rakshasi illusion ;and began to assume a thousand shapes for compassing the destructionof his adversary.
vrm.7.16 And seeing that one having a monkey like face, the Rakshasa, deriding him, burst out into laughter, and seemed as if a mass of clouds were sending roars.
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.7.18 Where is the fight of one initiated in a sacrifice? And where is the passion of one initiated in a sacrifice ?And victory is ever uncetain ;and the Rakshasa is dificult to vanquish.
vrm.7.19 And coming to the most powerful crowned heads resembling Mahendra and Varuna, the Rakshasa king said: Give me battle; or declare we have been defeated.
vrm.7.19 The lord of Ayodhya, on hearing the words of that wicked minded one, Anaranya, enraged, addressed the Rakshasa chief, saying, O king of Rakshasas, I will give thee combat, stay thou.
vrm.7.19 And having faught valorously for a long time, the remnant of the royal forces, suddenly coming in contact with the flaming Rakshasa ranks, were destroyed like unto swarms of locusts entering into fire.
vrm.7.19 But, O Rakshasa, I shall tell thee something in consequence of the disgrace that the Ikshwaku race has met with to day.
vrm.7.19 And then, that best of kings, went to heaven ;and when that king had gone to the celestial regions, the Rakshasa also went away.
vrm.7.20 How can this lord of Rakshasas, of himself, go to him who, resembling another fire, beareth to the gifts and acts of persons, that high souled one of whom attaining consciousness, people put foth their activity; and afflicted with the fear of whom these three worlds fall away? How can Ravana subdue him who ordaineth things both great and small, who meteth rewards and punishments for good and bad acts, and who himself hath conquered the three worlds ?Resorting to what other means shall Ravana secure victory ?I am curious about it: To Yama s abode shall I go for witnessing the encounter between Yama and the Rakshasa.
vrm.7.21 And dispelling the gloom of that region with the efulgence of Pushpaka, that exceedingly powerful Rakshasa came forward.
vrm.7.21 And on the dead being delivered by the magnanimous Rakshasa, the guards of the dead, getting enraged, rushed at the Rakshasa sovereign.
vrm.7.21 And then pierced through and through by those weapons, with his person covered with blood, the Rakshasa king appeared like a flowering Kinsuka in Pushpaka.
vrm.7.21 And snapping those weapons and resistingthose vollies of arms, they smote at the Rakshasa fighting alone by hundreds and thousands.
vrm.7.21 And thereat the Rakshasa of terriffic prowess along with his councillors began to set up tremendous shouts; as if making the earth tremble.
vrm.7.22 And seeing the frightful car in that aspect with Death present in it, the ministers of the Rakshasa monarch at once took to their heels.
vrm.7.22 And again at his spacious breast, that Rakshasa who had undergone slender injury, could not resist, Yama s arms with hundreds of mighty darts hurled.
vrm.7.22 And then, O hero, there took place mighty onset between Yama and the Rakshasa both eager for victory and both never tiing of fight.
vrm.7.22 I shall slay this sinful Rakshasa.
vrm.7.22 Even this is my native might this Rakshasa will be no more.
vrm.7.22 He, who by his very sight draweth away the lives of creatures, what should be said of its touching and being hurled at people ?And touched by that powerful one, that mighty weapon, engist with flames, attained access of energy, and seemed to consume the Rakshasa.
vrm.7.23 Do you therefore turn your minds to making friends with the Rakshasa.
vrm.7.23 in law, the husband of Surpanakha, the mighty Vidyujjihva possessed of terriffic strength; as that Rakshasa in the encounter was licking the limbs of Ravana s followers.
vrm.7.23 And in a short while that entire host of Varuna was brought down by the highly powerful councillor of that Rakshasa Dasagriva.
vrm.7.23 Thereupon emitting loud cries the Rakshasa, like unto a cloud, with a downpour of diverse shafts, destroyed the ofspring of Varuna.
vrm.7.24 There the Ten necked Rakshasa beheld a highly picturesque house adorned with networks of pearls, having gateways crested with Vaiduryas, golden pillars and; abounding in pavements.
vrm.7.24 He thus meditating that man said What at thou thinking, O Rakshasa ?Tell me all in confidence.
vrm.7.24 And taking that Rakshasa by the hand and placing him on his lap he said.
vrm.7.24 As soon as it was uplifted the Rakshasa dropped down on ground, bathed in a pool of blood, like unto an uprooted Sala tree.
vrm.7.25 Hearing those words that Rakshasa proceeded towards the sun and beheld two gate keepers Pingala and Dandi by name.
vrm.7.25 Hearing those words he approached the high souled Rakshasa and communicated unto him what the sun had said.
vrm.7.26 The Ten naked Rakshasa said to him Do thou give me battle.
vrm.7.26 Being thus addressed, he, laughing, said to the Ten necked Rakshasa If thy life is not dear unto thee, do thou fight with me, O Rakshasa.
vrm.7.26 Thereupon the entire Rakshasa host, emitting loud cries, stood encircling on all sides the lord of Rakshasas.
vrm.7.26 He was instantly worked up with fire; and assuming a person resplendant like that of the sun and the moon he began to slay the Rakshasa host with a dreadful downpour of shafts.
vrm.7.26 With his arrows and the noise thereof the entire Rakshasa army were overwhelmed like the agitated deep.
vrm.7.26 Thereupon that man and Rakshasa being reconciled with one another went back by the ways they had respectively come.
vrm.7.27 Thereupon that Rakshasa went to the sixth aerial region, O thou gifted with high radiance, which also extends over ten thousand Yojanas and where
vrm.7.28 After a few days that Rakshasa Ravana, the dread of all people, arrived at the banks of the western Ocean with his councillors.
vrm.7.28 And beholding that highly powerful person amongst men like unto the chief of gods amongst the Devas, the moon amongst the planets, the lion amongst the Sarabhas the Airavata amongst the elephants, the Meru amongst the mountanis, and the Parijata amongst the trees, the ten nerked Rakshasa said "Give me battle.
vrm.7.28 Beholding that Rakshasa fallen and having distressed others that huge person, like unto the Rig Veda, resembling a mountain and be decked with lotus garlands, entered the region under thc earth.
vrm.7.28 Beholding that Rakshasa fallen he said the following words "Rise up, O foremost of Rakshasas, thou shalt not meet with death today ;thou shalt live and be protected, O Rakshasa, by the great Patriarch s boon.
vrm.7.28 And that Rakshasa, bent on sin, was not seen by him with angry looks, and there fore, Rama, Ravana, was not there and then reduced to ashes.
vrm.7.28 Having regained his sense, however, after a long time, that Rakshasa, of great prowess, returned where his councillors were.
vrm.7.29 And whatever beautiful damsel he saw, married or unmarried, that Rakshasa held them captive in his car, having slain all their friends and relatives.
vrm.7.29 And though the ravishment of another s wife is a great sin, still that vile Rakshasa is enjoying us who belong to others.
vrm.7.30 Thereupon that foremost of twice born ones Usanas of austere penances, wishing the prosperity of the sacrifice, said to Ravana the Rakshasa chief "Hear,I shal relate to thee everything, O king ;thy son hath met with the fruits of many a sacrifice Agnistoma, Asvamedha, Bahusuvarnaka.
vrm.7.30 There was an old Rakshasa, celebrated for his wisdom, named Malyavan,the elder brother of Sumalin.
vrm.7.30 Thy son being engaged in the sacrifice and myself being under waters she was stolen away, O king, by the powerful Rakshasa Madhu.
vrm.7.30 Having raised her up the Rakshasa chief Ravana said "No fear, what can I do for you ?"Whereto she replied "O king, O thou having long arms if thou art pleased with me, do not slay my husband to day, O conferrer of honours.
vrm.7.30 Do thou therefore proceed to his help, O Rakshasa with all they friends; It behoves thee to help him, who out of afection for me, hath prayed for thy help.
vrm.7.31 Being apprised of the plight of people brought about by him and of the death of that Rakshasa the patriarch Brahma and other gods were greatly delighted.
vrm.7.32 And there arose in the region of Devas an uproar from the Rakshasa army, like unto the sound of the agitated deep.
vrm.7.32 And Mahendra, afraid of Ravana, poorly went to Vishnu and gave vent to the following accents: How shall I, O Vishnu, withstand, the Rakshasa Ravana? The highly powerful Rakshasa hath come here for battle.
vrm.7.32 Irrepressible by virtue of his prowess, that Rakshasa, with his son, shall accomplish a mighty object.
vrm.7.32 O lord of Devas, even if I am requested by thee, I shall not withstand the Rakshasa, Ravana in the conflict.
vrm.7.32 However I do promise before thee, O lord of the Devas, O performer of hundred sacrifices, I shall, soon become the cause of this Rakshasa s death.
vrm.7.32 And the Devas, as well, began to send the redoubtable, powerful and terrific Rakshasas, with the stroke of blameless weapons, to the abode of Death, In the interim, O Rama, a Rakshasa, Sumalin, by name, getting enraged and with diverse weapons, ran amock of the soldiery, the winds scatter clouds, so, he, under the
vrm.7.33 Beholding Sumalin slain and reduced to ashes by Vasu and being assailed by the Devas the Rakshasa host led into diverse directions.
vrm.7.33 There upon the Rakshasa army began to fight with Maruts and they were overwhelmed in the encounter with the stroke of various weapons.
vrm.7.33 And the Rakshasa chief Dasanana, having long arms, also assailed Indra with hundreds of shafts discharged of his bow.
vrm.7.35 And that Rakshasa shall be powerful and "irrepressible, by whose help, O king, the Devas have been brought under thy subjection.
vrm.7.36 Flowers being thus collected, Ravana, the king of Rakshasa descended, into theNarmada for bathinglikea huge elephant into the Ganges.
vrm.7.37 Within a short time the dreadful Rakshasa, powerful as the elephant Arjuna, reached the banks of Narmada and espied there Arjuna encircled by females as an elephant surrounded by she elephants.
vrm.7.37 Thereupon stood there obstructing his course Rakshasa, worked up with anger and with a mace in his hand, like unto the Vindhya range standing in the way of the sun.
vrm.7.37 And the Rakshasa orce grew tempestous like unto the rising of the ocean during rains.
vrm.7.37 Thereupon exclaiming repeatedly "Leave him off! Leave him off!! Wait! Wait!!" The Rakshasa host hurled hundreds of Musalas and darts in the battle field.
vrm.7.39 O Ravana, O Rakshasa, even if thou hast drunk Amrita, thou shalt at this very moment loose thy life, when the encounter with Vali shall take place.
vrm.7.46 Thereupon, another damsel, grabbing that Rakshasa chief, rose up in the welkin.
vrm.7.47 Defeating many brave heroes and the mighty Rakshasa Ravana, O Raghava, didst thou recover thy wife from great distress, enhancing the fame of thy race".
vrm.7.69 Having thus addressed his son Puru, the king Yayati angrily said to Yadu, the son of Devayani Thou, vicious Rakshasa, art born of me in the shape of a Kshatriya, or else why shouldst thou disobey my orders ?For this thou shalt never be a king.
vrm.7.78 Having slain him and been at ease, Saudasa, the foremost of men, began to eye that Rakshasa.
vrm.7.78 Having said this the Rakshasa vanished therefrom.
vrm.7.78 Thereupon when the sacrifice was about to be finished the aforesaid Rakshasa, remembering his former enmity, assumed the shape of Vasishta and said to the king Saudasa "O king, today the sacrifice shall end; do therefore, without any delay, feed me with meat.
vrm.7.78 Hearing the words of the Rakshasa in the guise of a Brahman, the king ordered his expert cook?, saying "Do ye soon prepare such dishes of meat as may satisfy my preceptor Vasishta.
vrm.7.78 Having been ordered by the king the cooks reverentially went away and the Rakshasa assuming their shape brought before the king dishes.
vrm.7.78 Thereupon the king with his spouse again and again bowed unto Vasishta s feet and informed him of what the Rakshasa has done under the guise of a Brahmana.
vrm.7.78 Hearing the words of the king and being apprised that this vile act had been done by the Rakshasa, Vasishta said, "O king, even what I have said angrily shall not prove futile.
vrm.7.80 On the other hand inding the delay of his return tke king Mandhata, enraged, began to assail the Rakshasa Lavana with arrows from all sides.
vrm.7.81 Thou shalt not be able to survive at my hands "He having this, the Rakshasa, laughing aloud, replied unto that nost of men "Thy understanding is bewildered.
vrm.7.81 The Rakshasa Ravana was the brother of my aunts, o thou of vicious understanding, O vile wight, it is for his wife that Rama did slay him.
vrm.7.82 O Rakshasa, forsooth shall good crown cities and villages when thou shalt fall down burnt by my arrows.
vrm.7.82 Beholding his own action bafled the Rakshasa again took up many trees and hurled them at Satrughna, who, with three or four hundred bent arrows, cut them all, one by one, into pieces.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon when the powerful Satrughna assailed him with arrows the Rakshasa was not the least pained.
vrm.7.82 Rather laughing aloud the valiant Rakshasa uprooted a tree and struck him with that on the head.
vrm.7.82 This Satrughna is the first portion of Vishnu s person ;do ye all go hence and behold the destruction of the foremost Rakshasa, Lavana, by the high souled, heroic Satrughna, the younger brother of Rama.
vrm.7.82 The Rakshasa being slain that celestial, huge arrow came into the possession of Rudra before the gods.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon chanting the glories of Satrughna, the Devas, Rishis, Pannagas, Apsaras, said "O son of Dasaratha, it is really fortunate, that thou, renouncing fear, hast acquired victory and that the Rakshasa Lavana hath been vanquished like a serpent.
vrm.7.83 Lavana being slain the Devas headed by Agni and Indra said in sweet accents to Satrughna the represser of enemies "O child, fortunate it is that thou hast been crowned with success after slaying the Rakshasa Lavana.
vrm.7.84 And thou hast easily slain that vicious souled Rakshasa, Lavana.
