vrm.1.1 After an audience with Ravana Hanuma burnt that city Lanka, except where Seetha, the princess of Mithila is stationed, and then to narrate the pleasant news of locating Seetha, he again got back to Rama, for he is a great Vanara.
vrm.1.1 "On going to the city Lanka by that bridge and on eliminating Ravana in battle, Rama redeemed Seetha, but he subsequently came down with much humiliation, since redeeming Seetha in enemy s place might become controversial.

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 "You have given boon to him appreciating his ascesis and oh, god, with high regard to that boon of yours we are tolerating all the cruel acts of Ravana from then onwards "That malevolent Ravana is tormenting all the three worlds, hating the functionary deities of cosmos, and always desires to assail Indra, the king of all the functionary deities of universe.
vrm.1.15 "The Sun god will not verily parch Ravana, the Vayu will not puff at his sides, and on seeing Ravana, the lord of the undulating waves, namly the ocean will not pulsate either.
vrm.1.15 When all the deities spoke to Brahma thus, he thought for a while and then said Aha"! The idea to kill that evil minded Ravana is discerned.
vrm.1.15 Ravana" said while seeking boon that, I shall not be killed by Gandharva s, Yaksha s, or by Devas, or by other Rakshasas.
vrm.1.15 "Oh! Vishnu, on your taking birth as human through the wives of Dasharatha you eliminate Ravana in war, who has become exacerbating and thorny to all worlds, and who is otherwise not eliminable for Devas.
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.1.15 a, "Get rid off the fear, let safety be upon you, on eliminating that cruel and evil minded Ravana who became dreadful to deities and sages, along with his sons, grandsons, friends, cousins and relatives, ministers and forces too in war for your welfare, I will then reside in human world ruling this earth for eleven thousand years.
vrm.1.15 "Oh! Vishnu, he that fiery one is uprising furiously with his heightened arrogance, and he is a fright to sages and a thorn in the side of hermits, and he is the hater of Indra, hence we pray you to redeem that Ravana.
vrm.1.15 "On eliminating that furiously vainglorious Ravana with all his forces and with all his kinsmen neutralise the pandemonium created by him in all the worlds, and for a long time to come you get rid of your febrility, and you please return to your heavenly abode, namely your blameless and faultless Vaikuntha.
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 Asked thus all the Devas said to that sempiternal Vishnu, "on assuming a human form, eliminate Ravana in a war.
vrm.1.16 "Oh, destroyer of enemies, he that Ravana undertook a vehement ascesis for a long period, thereby the creator of worlds and the first born one Brahma, felt gladsome of his ascesis.
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.1.20 b, a That formidable Ravana is not a devastator of rituals by himself,
vrm.1.20 b, Thus when he is said so by that sage Vishvamitra, then the king Dasharatha spoke to the sage, I myself am not capable of standing against that evil minded Ravana, in truth, where is the question of deputing my young Rama to confront him?
vrm.1.20 Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Patangas and Pannagas are incapable to bear the brunt of that Ravana in fight, what to tell about humans.
vrm.1.20 But that Ravana depletes the valour of valorous opponents in a
vrm.2.1 That Rama was He not the eternal Vishnu who was born on earth as prayed by Devas to kill the egoistic Ravana? Like Aditi by Indra, best among the Devas, Kausalya shone by her son Rama, the mighty.
vrm.2.112 Thereafter, that assembly of sages, who wished to see a quick destruction of Ravana, came together and spoke the following words to Bharata, the excellent 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.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 a "My brother is valorous and mighty Ravana, the king of Rakshasas and the son of Vishravasa, if ever you have heard of him.
vrm.3.31 Then on going hurriedly from Janasthana and on speedily entering Lanka Akampana spoke these words to Ravana.
vrm.3.31 Thus said, then that ten faced Ravana is infuriated with bloodshot eyes, and as though to burn down whole world with his radiance he spoke this to Akampana.
vrm.3.31 Thus Ravana said about himself.
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 On hearing the words of Akampana, the chief of Rakshasas Ravana, spoke these words hissing like a kingly serpent.
vrm.3.31 Akampana again detailed about the might and valour of that great souled Rama on hearing that sentence of Ravana.
vrm.3.31 "To whichever nook those Rakshasas smitten by fear of those serpent like are fleeing, they have seeing Rama alone standing afore them in that corner, and oh, merited king Ravana, in this way your Janasthana is totally ruined by that Rama.
vrm.3.31 b, On hearing the words of Akampana Ravana said these words, "I will to go to Janasthana to kill Rama along with Lakshmana.
vrm.3.31 When Ravana said so then Akampana said these words in reply, listen, oh, king, what all has happened, and of what in actuality is Rama s spirit and grit.
vrm.3.31 Akampana advised Ravana in this way.
vrm.3.31 The chief of Rakshasas Ravana favouring that idea thought of it and that mighty armed Ravana then spoke to Akampana.
vrm.3.31 Ravana declared that way.
vrm.3.31 Saying so Ravana journeyed in a chariot that is yoked with mule like Horses, and that has the dazzling of the sun, whereby all the directions are made to glitter.
vrm.3.31 On going to the hermitage of Maricha which is at a distant place Maricha the son of Tataka received Ravana and venerated that king of Rakshasas with sweetmeats and savouries that are unavailable to humans.
vrm.3.31 Offering proper seat and water for washing feet and hands Maricha personally attended Ravana and spoke to him this sentence that is worded meaningfully.
vrm.3.31 When Maricha said so to him that greatly radiant one who is a sententious speaker that Ravana thereafter spoke this sentence.
vrm.3.31 "Oh, Ravana, it will be unbefitting to raise an eye to see Rama in war, who will be then like a majestic Elephant that has an impeccable dynasty and bloodline as its mammoth trunk, personal radiance as its indomitable might, very firm pair of arms as its pernicious tusks, more so, who will be with the redolence of the irrepressible lineage of Raghava s.
vrm.3.31 Thus Maricha spoke to Ravana.
vrm.3.31 When thus said by Maricha that ten faced Ravana returned to his city Lanka and entered his best house and home.
vrm.3.32 Highly agitated to witness the deed done by Rama, which deed is highly impossible for others, she hurried Lanka ruled by Ravana.
vrm.3.32 She saw Ravana who is fulgent with his own radiance, seated with ministers at his nearby in the midst of the divine Aircraft Pushpaka, as with Indra who will be sitting amidst Maruts.
vrm.3.32 Seated similar to the Sun in firmament on a supreme golden throne, which resembles a golden Altar of Fire, and he himself resembling the blazing Ritual fire spurting out of it when that Golden Fire Altar is drenched with plentiful ghee, she saw such a Ravana.
vrm.3.32 An invincible one either for Gods or Gandharva s, or to sages with exalted souls, or even to any other entity worth its name, whose appearance itself is catastrophic, and who is sitting identical to the Terminator, as though that Terminator himself is sitting with a wide gaped mouth, at such a Ravana Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.32 One who is severally bruised in several combats of Devas and Asuras with the thunderbolts from the Vajra weapon of Indra, and one who is severally blotched on his chest when the prongs of the tusks of Airavata, the lordly Elephant of Indra, gored his chest, at such a Ravana Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.32 Blent with the gleam of the Lapis gems studded in his ornaments his glisten is alike that gem, while his ear knobs are made out of refined gold, and his arms strongish, teeth whitish, mouth widish and he is mountainous, and Shuurpanakha saw such a Ravana.
vrm.3.32 His body bears hundreds of welts caused when assaulted with Vishnu disc for hundreds of times in wars with Gods, and when assaulted for hundreds of times with the other assaults missiles in other gruesome wars as well, and Shuurpanakha saw at such a Ravana.
vrm.3.32 Likewise, whose limbs are thrashed with thrashing missilery of all Gods, whereby his body and soul have become harsh, thus he can perpetrate anything swiftly at his will, and he who can capably roil an un perturbable ocean at his wish, at such Ravana Shuurpanakha saw.
vrm.3.32 b, a That courageous one who in early times has practised ascesis for ten thousand years in a great forest, and who on accomplishing it has dedicated ten of his heads to the Self Created Brahma, she saw such a Ravana with such ten heads.
vrm.3.32 b, a Whereby, to whom there is an indemnity against death in war at the hand of Gods, Rakshasas, Gandharva s, Pisachas, Suparnas, Nagas, excepting humans, and Shuurpanakha saw such an unimperilled Ravana.
vrm.3.32 b, a She that Rakshasi Shuurpanakha saw her brother who makes all beings to wail, an alarming one to all the worlds, an atrocious one and highly formidable Ravana.
vrm.3.32 b, a Rakshasi Shuurpanakha nearing Ravana, who is the highly fortunate king of Rakshasas, an enemy destroyer and a felicity of the dynasty of Sage Pulastya, and who is now surrounded by his ministers, she spoke this sentence.
vrm.3.32 b, She who is disfigured by the high souled Lakshmana, and who is still perplexed with the fear of Lakshmana and her own craving for Rama as well, on displaying her misfortune to everybody that fearless rover Shuurpanakha spoke this very caustic sentence to Ravana, whose eyes are broad and burning.
vrm.3.33 Then that doleful Shuurpanakha spoke these scornful words to Ravana who makes the world to wail in the presence of his ministers.
vrm.3.33 Thus Shuurpanakha declaimed Ravana about his worthlessness as a king.
vrm.3.33 In this way when Shuurpanakha extolled only his negative traits, he that lord of night walkers Ravana, who holds only his pride, power and prosperity dear to him, pored them over in his mind and contemplated over a time.
vrm.3.34 On observing Shuurpanakha who is speaking bitter words against him in the presence of ministers then Ravana is highly infuriated and queried her.
vrm.3.34 "Oh, the king of Rakshasas Ravana, if this advise of mine is pleasing to you, let this idea be actualised without any shilly shallying in your mind.
vrm.3.34 Thus Shuurpanakha has earbashed Ravana.
vrm.3.35 On hearing the exciting advise of Shuurpanakha then Ravana bade adieu to ministers, and indeed on resolving his further task he proceeded to his personal palace chambers.
vrm.3.35 When that brisk paced charioteer is said in this way he instantly harnessed the favourite and choicest chariot of Ravana with Horses and got it ready.
vrm.3.35 That chariot which is decorated with golden ornaments, yoked with monster faced mules that have gem studded trappings is rideable by the wish of the rider, and sitting in such a chariot which is wholly golden and which rides with a sound like the pealing of thunder, that celebrated Ravana, the brother of Kubera and the lord of Rakshasas, travelled towards the lord of rivers and rivulets, namely the ocean.
vrm.3.35 That dauntless Ravana forged ahead while viewing the area along the coastline which is interspersed with thousands of mountains and which is with variously flowered and fruited trees.
vrm.3.35 While Ravana, the brother of Kubera, is quickly transiting he saw everywhere the whitish and widish Aircrafts belonging to the deified souls who acquired higher worlds, and from those Aircrafts adorned with divine flowery tassels and piloted by the wish of their steersmen, instrumental and vocal music is resonating, and Gandharva s are singing and Apsara s are dancing in them.
vrm.3.35 Ravana proceeded while observing thousands of woodlands with sandalwood trees that are soothing and satisfying the sense of smell, and that oozed sweet smelling resin at their bases.
vrm.3.35 On seeing the delightful, serene, and marvellous cascades, and cities that are abundant in wealth and agricultural produce, and abundant with gemlike womenfolk, and that are replete with Elephants, Horses, and chariots, Ravana proceeded further.
vrm.3.35 a Ravana observed the delta adjacent to seacoast of that kingly ocean to be uniform and smooth, while the light air breezing in there is soft for touch, thus it looked heavenly.
vrm.3.35 b, a There Ravana also saw a banyan tree which in sheen is like a black cloud, and the branches of which are stretching all over for a hundred Yojana s in length, and on which sages made their abode for practising ascesis.
vrm.3.35 Ravana on his way saw such a banyan tree named as Subhadra which is a much sought after tree for assemblages of great sages, and which betokens the deeds of that best winged Garuda.
vrm.3.35 On going to the other side of the lord of rivers, namely ocean, Ravana saw a pleasing hermitage in the sacred and scenic interior of the forest.
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.3.35 On personally offering meals and drinking water, and venerating him properly Maricha spoke this sentence to Ravana which is connotative of significance.
vrm.3.35 When Maricha spoke to him thus, that highly radiant and eloquent Ravana then afterwards spoke this sentence to Maricha.
vrm.3.36 Thus Ravana started addressing Maricha.
vrm.3.36 Thus Ravana requested Maricha.
vrm.3.36 Wetting dried up lips with his tongue he has become goggle eyed almost like an about to die animal, and he agonisingly looked up at Ravana with winkless eyes.
vrm.3.36 Maricha s heart sank with scare as he is aware of Rama s valour when he was in the great forest of Tataka, thus suppliantly making palm fold he started telling about factuality of Rama to Ravana, which is beneficial both to Ravana and to himself, as well, if only Ravana is heedful of it.
vrm.3.37 On hearing that idea of the chief of Rakshasas Ravana in abducting Seetha, Maricha, a well informed one and an articulator spoke to the lord of Rakshasas in reply.
vrm.3.37 "With the bow stretched to his ear becoming a gaping mouth spouting flames, arrows becoming tongues of fire spewed forth from that flaming mouth, he that Rama the reified Terminator will become fierce and insufferable when he wields bow and arrows, and oh, dear boy Ravana, it will be inapt of you to at once draw pretty nigh of such an annihilator of the armies of enemies, on discarding your kingdom, comforts and even the dear life of yours.
vrm.3.37 "Oh, king of nightwalkers Ravana, I for myself deem that your confrontation with Rama, the prince of Kosala, in a war is improper, and a better, befitting, and a reasonable one is this advise of mine, to which you may listen further.
vrm.3.38 "That Rama did not wish to kill me then, and I am thus saved by that valiant one, oh, dear boy Ravana, but the thrust of Rama s arrow bewildered my animation and I was on my last legs.
vrm.3.38 Thus, Maricha spoke to Ravana.
vrm.3.39 Thus Maricha continued his advise to Ravana.
vrm.3.39 "I moved about Dandaka forest, oh, Ravana, in an extremely horrible aspect of animal, utterly brutalising the sages at ritual altars, holy bathing places and under the trees of religious sanctuaries while reaching Rama.
vrm.3.39 "Oh, Ravana, appalled of Rama the names starting with the alphabet ra like ratna s, ratha s, viz.
vrm.3.40 When Maricha spoke those acceptable and equitable words, Ravana rejected them like a person with a death wish rejects medicament.
vrm.3.40 Ushered by the Terminator the king of Rakshasas Ravana, uncouthly spoke these unbefitting words to Maricha who had been speaking conducive and beneficial words of advise.
vrm.3.40 Thus Ravana spoke to Maricha.
vrm.3.41 When Ravana perversely ordered that way in all his kingliness, Maricha spoke these words caustically and frankly to that king of Rakshasas.
vrm.3.41 "Oh, best conqueror Ravana, probity, prosperity and pleasures, and even the popularity of the ministers, oh, night walker, are achieved at the beneficence of their master.
vrm.3.41 "Contrariwise, oh, Ravana, all that beneficence of the king to ministers becomes futile when the king behaves perversely, and even the others, namely the subjects of kingdom, will derive distress by the negative virtue of their master.
vrm.3.41 "Oh, Ravana, the subjects do not flourish while a lord with contrariety and coerciveness safeguards them, just like Goats guarded by a Fox.
vrm.3.41 "All those Rakshasas will definitely ruin, oh, Ravana, to whom you are the acrimonious and malicious king with unconquered senses, though you have conquered the heaven.
vrm.3.42 Maricha though curtly said in that way, then afraid of the king of night walkers he became self pitying, and said to Ravana, let us go.
vrm.3.42 So said Maricha to Ravana.
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 Thus Ravana said to Maricha.
vrm.3.42 Tataka s son Maricha said "All right" to Ravana, and then both Ravana and Maricha mounted the chariot as they would emplane an Aircraft and swiftly journeyed from the surroundings of Maricha s hermitage.
vrm.3.42 b, a On reaching Dandaka forest along with Maricha the king of Rakshasas Ravana has then seen the hermitage of Raghava.
vrm.3.42 b, a Alighting the chariot that is decorated with golden ornaments Ravana then spoke this sentence to Maricha taking his hand into his.
vrm.3.42 Thus Ravana hastened Maricha.
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.3.44 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 Perceptive of the time that chanced bearing his death, and wishful of the death of Ravana too, then made a voice that is a soundalike to Raghava s voice and yelled ha, Seetha.
vrm.3.46 Quickly taking hold of intervallic time then the ten headed Ravana approached Vaidehi adopting an aspect of a sanyaasi, a meandering Brahman friar.
vrm.3.46 a As with a pitchiest gloom overcoming the sunless and moonless lively eventide, that great mighty Ravana came over to Vaidehi in that forest, when she is without two of the brothers, namely Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.3.46 As a sinister planet looks over Star Rohini when she is devoid of Moon, that extremely sinister Ravana then looked over the glorious and youthful princess Seetha.
vrm.3.46 b, a On observing ferocious Ravana whose activities are iniquitous, the trees of Janasthana are not in full sway, nor the wind is in full swing.
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.3.46 b, a That disgraceful Ravana made advances in a graceful mien of Brahman almsman to Vaidehi who is thinking over her husband, like the slow moving Saturn making advance to Star Citra which will be ominous.
vrm.3.46 b, a Like a wellspring shrouded by grass, enshrouded in a decent getup of a Brahman friar, in a trice Ravana leeringly stood before of Vaidehi, the admirable wife of Rama.
vrm.3.46 While standing before her then Ravana eyed at the auspicious wife of Rama, whose lips and teeth are fine, visage is shiny like a full moon, and who is presently tortured by her tearful lamentation and sitting in the straw cottage, and he approached that lotus petal eyed Vaidehi who is dressed in ochry silks, as that night walker is gladdened at his heart for her solitude.
vrm.3.46 b, He who is hit by the arrows of Kamadeva that king of Rakshasas Ravana, on seeing Seetha entered resonating the resonances of Vedic hymns as precursory in seeking alms, and spoke these well mannered sentences to her who is in solitariness.
vrm.3.46 Ravana really acclaimed her who is an excellent one in all the three worlds, beaming forth with the beauty of her body, and who is like Goddess Lakshmi but for Divine lotus as Her settle, for Seetha is devoid of her settling, namely Rama.
vrm.3.46 "Glittering like the glitter of gold, silkened in ochry silks, you are like a lotus tendril garlanded with divine lotuses as your ensemble, who are you?" Thus Ravana started addressing Seetha
vrm.3.46 "Oh, auspicious lady, who are you? Whose are you? Also from where are you? And being lonely, what for you are moving in dreadful Dandaka forest that is adored by Rakshasas?" Thus Ravana spoke to Seetha.
vrm.3.46 b When the wicked minded Ravana praised her in this way, Vaidehi the princess from Mithila has seen him who has arrived in the getup of Brahman and started to revere him with all the respects affordable to a casual guest.
vrm.3.46 Thus Seetha said to Ravana.
vrm.3.46 Ravana thoroughly observed that wife of the king, Maithili, when she invited him talking civilities contextual in inviting a guest, that too Brahman sanyasi, and he firmed up his mind to abduct her even forcibly, and started to dedicate himself for destruction.
vrm.3.47 When Ravana whose intention is to abduct her has enquired thus, then on the basis of his Brahman friar s mien Seetha informed about herself on her own.
vrm.3.47 For what reason you are wandering in Dandaka forest lonesomely?" Thus Seetha questioned Ravana.
vrm.3.47 Ravana, the great mighty king of Rakshasas, brusquely replied Seetha, the wife of Rama, while she is still speaking in this way.
vrm.3.47 "Oh, Seetha, of whom all the worlds composed of Gods, Rakshasas and humans are highly startled, I am that sovereign of hosts of Rakshasas, known as Ravana.
vrm.3.47 Thus Ravana said to Seetha.
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 Thus Seetha gave her vent to her disdainful feelings towards Ravana.
vrm.3.47 On speaking these sentences with high strung words, with all her unsullied intentions to that highly sullied night rambler Ravana, her fragile body trembled tormentedly as with a banana plant up heaved by gust.
vrm.3.47 On closely marking Seetha to be tremulous, he that Ravana whose impetus is Death similar, clearly informed her of his name, caste, competency, and capability as his purpose is to cause scare.
vrm.3.48 When Seetha spoke thus Ravana is embittered, and knitting his eyebrows he indeed spoke these rudish words to Seetha.
vrm.3.48 "I am known as Ravana, oh, lady with superb complexion, let safety betide you, the highly valorous and ten headed stepbrother of Kubera.
vrm.3.48 "I am that Ravana at whose sight all the Gods together with Gandharva s, Pisachas, Suparnas and Nagas will always be frightened and fleeing, as with the people frightened and fleeing from death.
vrm.3.48 "I am that Ravana who when infuriated for some other reason took up a duel with Kubera, his brother from stepparent, wherein that Kubera is set up against and completely trounced in a combat.
vrm.3.48 "I am that Ravana by whom Kubera, the god for Wealth Management whose vehicular transport is handled by humans, is tormented fearfully and made to completely abandon his wealthiest place which is presided over by him till then, and I am the one who made that Kubera to flee to the excellent Mountain Kailasa where he is somehow living, because I will not cause any harm on Mountain Kailasa as I hold it sacred.
vrm.3.48 "I am that Ravana, oh, auspicious lady, who just by his valour acquired Kubera s auspicious Aircraft known as Pushpaka, whose pilotage is just by the wish of its aviator, with which I will be travelling in skies.
vrm.3.48 Thus Ravana spoke to Seetha.
vrm.3.48 "All the Rakshasas will perforce get completely destroyed, oh, Ravana, for whom you the cruel and culpable one with uncontrolled senses is the king, and you will be blameworthy for the elimination of righteous Rakshasas like Vibhishana, et al.
vrm.3.48 Thus Seetha spoke to Ravana.
vrm.3.49 On hearing Seetha s words that valorous ten headed Ravana loudly clapped in dissent for once and divulged his very mighty body.
vrm.3.49 That wordsmith Ravana again spoke these words to Maithili, "Perhaps you have not heard about my valour and vanquishes in all your madness for Rama.
vrm.3.49 So said Ravana when revealing his real nature.
vrm.3.49 While the infuriated Ravana is saying in that way his eyes which by themselves are torchlit in their shine have became further bloodshot and blackened at their edges.
vrm.3.49 Immediately discarding the gentle form of a Brahman friar, that younger brother of Kubera, Ravana, assumed his own ferocious form which is similar to the form of Terminator.
vrm.3.49 That celebrated Ravana whose eyes are bloodshot as he is ensorcelled by desperate fury transmuted his form into a tend faced, twenty armed night walker wearing golden ornaments of purified gold and appearing as a black tempestuous cloud.
vrm.3.49 a On discarding that guise of a Brahman friar that sovereign of Rakshasas Ravana educed his own physique and then that mighty bodied one attired in reddish clothing stood before Maithili observing that gem of a lady.
vrm.3.49 b, She whose tresses are glossily blackish until their ends, and who has on her glittering jewellery and silken ochry sari, whereby who is imperceivable like sun s glaring shine, to such Maithili Ravana spoke.
vrm.3.49 a "Oh, halfwitted lady, you who deem yourself a highly intellectual lady, listen, that mindless Rama who just by a word of a woman forebode kingdom along with all of his amiable people, and lives in this forest where the predators are on the prowl, thus he who is spurned off from kingdom, ungainful are his purposes, and who is even a short lived human, I wonder by what merits you are impassioned for such a Rama?" Thus Ravana spoke to Seetha.
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 He that Ravana grabbed the lotus eyed Seetha on lifting her up with his left hand at her plait of hair at nape, and with his right hand at her thighs.
vrm.3.49 Then the miracle air chariot of Ravana which is miraculously designed to appear and disappear at the wish of its master, yoked with miraculous mules, and built with its golden wheels and parts, appeared afore Ravana braying noisily.
vrm.3.49 Then he whose voice is strident that Ravana lifted her up by her waist and got Vaidehi up on the air chariot intimidating her with bitter words.
vrm.3.49 Agonised with anguish when gone into the captivity of Ravana, she that glorious Seetha wailed loudly for Rama saying oh, Rama, which Rama has gone deep into the forest by then.
vrm.3.49 Ravana who is infatuated with lust picked her up, which lady is disinclined for any kind of sensuality and who is verily writhing like the wife of King Cobra, and then he surged skyward and flew off with her in his air chariot.
vrm.3.49 "Oh, enemy inflamer Rama, I reckon that you are an absolute controller of uncontrollable beings, I wonder why you are not controlling this kind of sinner, Ravana, indeed?" This is how Seetha started her cry in wilderness.
vrm.3.49 Thus, she is addressing Ravana now.
vrm.3.49 Thus, she upbraided Ravana.
vrm.3.49 "I call the attention of the flowered Karnikara trees of Janasthana, you inform Rama that Ravana is thieving Seetha.
vrm.3.49 "I pray you who are with the bustle of swans and saarasa water Birds, oh, River Godavari, you promptly tell Rama that Ravana is thieving Seetha.
vrm.3.49 "Inform my husband about his dear and loftier wife than his lives, saying that, helpless Seetha is stolen by Ravana.
vrm.3.49 She that well waisted lady who has gone into the captivity of Ravana craned and stared at the eagle, and worsted by fear she shrieked squeakily with a stuttering voice that is walloped with anguish.
vrm.3.50 Jatayu who is slumbering away craned and stared on hearing the voicing of Seetha and then he saw Ravana and even Vaidehi.
vrm.3.50 Such as I am, oh, Dasamukha Rakshasa Ravana, I am the mightiest king of Eagles known by the name Jatayu.
vrm.3.50 "How a king adhering to probity can lay his hands on the wives of others? If it is a king s wife, oh, great mighty Ravana, she is to be safeguarded particularly.
vrm.3.50 "Stay for a moment, oh, Ravana, if you are valiant enough you can combat with Rama who will return right away, and at his hand you will be slain and sprawling on earth in the same way as Khara sprawled earlier.
vrm.3.50 "Stopoff! Stopoff! Oh, Dasamukha Ravana, briefly learn of me as how I jettison you from your best air chariot, as with the unloading of a burdensome fruit from its sepals.
vrm.3.51 When Ravana is spoken to by Jatayu with judicious words, Ravana s eyes reddened infuriately, and his burnished golden ear knobs flickered injuriously, and that lord of Rakshasas dashed towards the lord of Birds, intolerantly.
vrm.3.51 As with two gigantic clouds up heaved by the tornadic gusts will be hard hitting each other tempestuously in sky, the combat between those two, Ravana and Jatayu, became tempestuous in the sky.
vrm.3.51 Then the great mighty Ravana incessantly stormed the lord of Eagles Jatayu, with arrows that have excruciating and highly dreadful arrowheads, like tubular arrows, iron arrows, and with arrows that have crescentic arrowheads.
vrm.3.51 That Eagle Jatayu who is the lord of winged chariots, namely Birds, in turn sustained those arrays of Ravana s arrows in that combat.
vrm.3.51 But that great mighty Jatayu severally made gashes on the body of Ravana with his two feet that have gashing claws for that bird is with best stamina.
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 highly energetic Ravana released and impaled the eagle with straight shooting arrows on fully stretching the bowstring up to his ear, whose steel pointed arrowheads are sharp, hurtful, and deadly.
vrm.3.51 That unexcelled bird of high refulgence then shattered Ravana s bow which is decorated with pearls and gemstones, and on which an arrow is admitted targeting the eagle, just by the pair of his bare feet.
vrm.3.51 Ravana convulsed in anger then took up another bow and stormed hundreds and thousands of arrow storms.
vrm.3.51 Nested in the arrows shot by Ravana that lordly bird Jatayu then shone forth in that combat like a bird that obtains a readymade nest.
vrm.3.51 On winnowing those arrays of arrows with both of his wings, he that highly refulgent Jatayu shattered the mighty bow of Ravana with both of his feet.
vrm.3.51 That highly resplendent lord of Birds also blasted off the armour of Ravana, which is glowing and flamelike in its flare, with both of his feet.
vrm.3.51 Mighty Jatayu also knocked off the ghost faced mules yoked to the chariot of Ravana which are covered in golden armours and tantivy in fastness.
vrm.3.51 Then that great chariot which is flourishing with three bamboos from chassis to yoke, and which traverses just by its steersman s wish, and which is crafted fantastically with gem studded body and stairs, or, whose wheels are crafted with gold and gemstones, and which in its flare is like a Ritual fire, Jatayu splintered down even that chariot of Ravana.
vrm.3.51 Jatayu swiftly collapsed the Parasol of Ravana which in shine is mirroring the full moon, along with the regalia of white royal fur fans, together with the Rakshasas handling them for fanning Ravana.
vrm.3.51 Again that highly energetic and imposing king of Birds pecked off the robust head of the charioteer of Ravana with beak.
vrm.3.51 Now Ravana who is with his devastated bow, devoid of chariot, dispatched are his Horses and departed is his charioteer, and such as he is, he on grabbing Vaidehi by her torso, or, placing her on the lower end of his torso, jumped to earth.
vrm.3.51 On seeing Ravana who is foundered onto earth from his crumbled vehicle, all beings like sylvan deities, Caarana s, Siddha s and suchlike, reverenced that lordly eagle Jatayu.
vrm.3.51 But on seeing the commandant of Birds Jatayu is fatigued owing to his senescence, Ravana is gladdened and he again rose up to skies taking Maithili.
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 "You mean minded Ravana, you abduct her whose husband wields arrows that touch off like the Thunderbolt of Indra, and this spite of yours is definitely for the destruction of all the Rakshasas.
vrm.3.51 How do you untether yourself from that lasso of the Terminator, even if you go anywhere? "But, oh Ravana, the unassailable Raghava s of Kakutstha dynasty will nevermore condone your assailing this hermitage.
vrm.3.51 "Stay for a moment, oh, Ravana, if you are valiant enough you can combat with Rama who will return right away, and at his hand you will be slain and sprawling on earth in the same way as Khara sprawled earlier.
vrm.3.51 "If sin is consequential to any given activity who will undertake it? Even if that person vies with the Self Born God and Lord of the Universe, namely Brahma, will he undertake it?" Thus Jatayu advised 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 On clasping Ravana with incisive claws Jatayu lacerated deeply and rampantly, as a mahout, an Elephant trainer controller, sitting astride on it will try to control an uncontrollable Elephant that is running amok with an incisive goad.
vrm.3.51 Weaponed only with his claws, wings, and beak, Jatayu not only tore the back of Ravana asunder applying his beak and claws, but started to tweeze even his hair.
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 Ravana who is aggrieved and convulsed in fury hit back Jatayu with his palm while firmly clutching Vaidehi onto his left flank.
vrm.3.51 Jatayu, the lord of Birds, being a vanquisher of enemies outstripped Ravana and ripped off ten left arms of Ravana with his beak, with which left arms Ravana is clutching Vaidehi, in order to release her from his clutches.
vrm.3.51 The valorous Dasamukha Ravana then threw off Seetha, and out of fury he scuffled with the king of Eagles with fisticuffs and kicks, by both his feet and fists.
vrm.3.51 Ravana brandishing his sword at Jatayu, who is revolting for the sake of Rama, hewed off both of his wings, sides, and feet.
vrm.3.51 Ravana, the monarch of Lanka, gazed at that worthily valorous Jatayu, who in his shine is like a blue black cloud with a whitely white chest and who by now is like a quiescent fire storm flattened onto ground.
vrm.3.51 But then Seetha, the daughter of Janaka, whose face vies with moonshine hugged eagle Jatayu, whom Ravana has subjugated with his forcefulness and felled down onto the surface of earth, and she wept over incessantly.
vrm.3.52 Seetha whose visage is like a full moon wept on gazing the king of Eagles Jatayu whom Ravana nearly killed.
vrm.3.52 "Oh, Rama, this sky flier Jatayu who mercifully came here to save me is verily mangled on his encountering Ravana, and he is sprawling on earth, indeed by my ill luck.
vrm.3.52 That sovereign of Rakshasas, Ravana, rushed towards Vaidehi whose garlands and jewellery are muddled up and who is bawling like an orphanized one.
vrm.3.52 Ravana, the lord of Rakshasas, has repeatedly and harshly taunted Seetha saying, leave it off, leave it off.
vrm.3.52 On seeing Seetha s appropriation by an impropriate being, the dwellers in Dandaka forest cognised that Ravana s annihilation has chanced coincidentally.
vrm.3.52 Ravana, the lord of Rakshasas, on wresting Seetha who is bawling, Rama".
vrm.3.52 When her ochreish silk sari s upper fringe is upheaved by air onto to Ravana, Ravana looked blazing like a mountain set ablaze, muchly and overly.
vrm.3.52 Reddish and scented lotus petals adorning that highly auspicious Seetha have slithered, but again upheaved by air they are bestrewn on Ravana.
vrm.3.52 As with a stalk less lotus the immaculate visage of Seetha is unbright in the sky when she is on the flank of Ravana as Rama is not in vicinage.
vrm.3.52 Nevertheless, when she has gone in the flank of Ravana on the sky such an immaculate face of Seetha turned like a palish moon that has just risen bursting a bluish cloud.
vrm.3.52 Seetha, the daughter of Janaka, with a complexion that is goldenly yellowish in the tinge of a lotus, moreover with her ornaments of purified gold, flashed like a lightning possessed in a dark cloud, when that stonehearted Ravana possessed her.
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 Like the garland of pristine stars that circles round the loftiest Mountain Meru, that flower shower circled Ravana, the brother of Kubera.
vrm.3.52 She that Vaidehi who is so delicate like reddish leaflets of trees made that blackish bodied lord of Rakshasas, Ravana, well and truly lambent, herself becoming a golden girdle girded around the Elephant like Ravana.
vrm.3.52 Or Ravana, the brother of Kubera, on invading the sky abducted that radiant Seetha who is radiating the sky by her own radiancy like a massive meteor.
vrm.3.52 The trees on which diverse Birds are perching have been stirred up with the wind blown and up heaved by the gust of Ravana s flight, while the swaying motion of those treetops is as though waving hands to console Seetha saying, "fear not.
vrm.3.52 "When Ravana is abducting none other than the wife of Rama, then there is no probity.
vrm.3.53 Maithili, the daughter of Janaka, on seeing the skyward flight of Ravana taking her along became highly frantic and remaining in highest dismay she is distraught.
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 knave Ravana, you are taking flight on thieving me after prowling about my loneliness, such as you are, are you not ashamed in the least for this subterfuge.
vrm.3.53 by ear shattering your great name saying that I am Ravana.
vrm.3.53 "Oh, Ravana, positively contemplate in your soul and politely release me.
vrm.3.53 b, a "Oh, Ravana, you will see the ghastly River Vaitarani which will be tumultuously streaming with blood streams, also thus you will see the grisly sword leaved forests in hell.
vrm.3.53 b, a "You are bound by the unpreventable lasso of the Time, oh, Ravana, on going where you will get complacency from that uncompromising husband of mine? b, a "By whom fourteen thousand Rakshasas are killed in war just within a minute, single handedly without any help from his brother, how then that brave and mighty Raghava, an expert in all kinds of missiles, will not eliminate you, the stealer of his chosen wife, with his mordant arrows?" Thus Seetha poured forth her ire at Ravana.
vrm.3.53 On saying this much and other exacting words, Vaidehi who has gone onto the flank of Ravana, indeed lamented lamentably as her dismay is coalesced with her distress.
vrm.3.54 a On his part that Dasamukha Ravana has not noticed her action in whipping up her silky upper cloth and ornaments, their bundling and stowing away at five vanara s, owing to his own hurry.
vrm.3.54 The chief of Rakshasas Ravana captivating Maithili, who is still wailing, has crossed the Pampa region down underneath and advanced facing the City of Lanka.
vrm.3.54 b, a Ravana is jubilantly happy in stealing his own death alias Seetha, as one would carry a stingingly fanged and lethally venomous she snake in his own lap.
vrm.3.54 b, a Then the Siddha s and Caarana s available in airspace averred saying, "this alone is the end of Dasamukha Ravana.
vrm.3.54 b, a Ravana entered the city of Lanka transporting Seetha, while she wriggling in his flank, who appeared like the personified death of Ravana wriggling its way into his Lanka.
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 That Dasamukha Ravana also instructed the bogey sightly bogeywomen, "your watch and ward shall be in such a way that neither a female nor a male can see Seetha impermissibly.
vrm.3.54 Thus Ravana ordered the chamber Rakshasi s.
vrm.3.54 b, He who is egocentric by the boon awarded by Brahma for his invincibleness, that Ravana on giving an audience to those eight Rakshasas spoke this sentence to them praiseful of their might and valour.
vrm.3.54 Thus Ravana spoke to those eight Rakshasas.
vrm.3.54 Then on picking up those words amiable to all intents and purposes of Ravana, those eight Rakshasas departed from Lanka on hailing Ravana, and they collectively journeyed in the direction of Janasthana with their imperceivable appearances.
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.3.55 On directing those eight ghastly Rakshasas Ravana is amused in his heart of hearts that he has accomplished a great feat.
vrm.3.55 On continually musing upon Vaidehi Ravana is tormented with the arrows of Kamadeva, thereby to lay eyes on Seetha he post hastily entered the beautiful palace.
vrm.3.55 That paradisiacal mansion house of Dasamukha Ravana is congestive with innumerable cupolaed skyscrapers, adored with thousands of females, frequented by diverse bevies of Birds, and it comprised of numerous gemstones.
vrm.3.55 a Ravana walked up the wonderful golden staircase along with Seetha, and the rows of skyscrapers with windows that are ivoried and silvered and with window blinds are seen from the windows of the landing on that flight of stairs, which are also ivoried and silvered windows with window blinds, and all are amusing for sight.
vrm.3.55 b, That Dasamukha Ravana displayed the multiple stories of his own palace which is all over white marbled and diamond encrusted to Maithili.
vrm.3.55 Ravana continued to display the descendible wellsprings and leisure pools from which diverse flowers have sprung and overspread them, regardless of Seetha s languishing under her anguish.
vrm.3.55 On flaunting his best palace in its entirety to Vaidehi that dirty minded Ravana spoke this sentence to Seetha in order that she may be tempted on her own, lustily.
vrm.3.55 Thus Ravana started his self eulogy.
vrm.3.55 b, a "Oh, lady with a comely countenance, your visage is lotus similar in its shine, besides being immaculate, fairish and eyeful, but oh, curvaceous lady, with such a mushily maudlin of such a face this palace of mine is unbright, thus marry me to brighten everything" Thus Ravana spoke to Seetha.
vrm.3.55 b, a While Ravana is speaking to her in this way that graceful lady Seetha veiled her moonier face with fringe of her sari, and stiflingly dispelled tears on that mooniest face behind her half veil.
vrm.3.55 To her who is disconcerted and whose anguish marred her brilliance and who is appearing as though pondering over the question of her submittal to Ravana, or otherwise, although she is meditating, to such a Seetha Ravana the nightwalker said these words.
vrm.3.55 a "I with a lustful hollow heart spoke all these hollow words that are unbefitting to my stature, indeed, Ravana will never supplicate headlong to whosoever woman.
vrm.3.55 b, c That Dasamukha Ravana on speaking thus to Maithili, who is the daughter of Janaka, deemed that she is mine, as he has gone under the sway of the Terminator.
vrm.3.56 She that Vaidehi who is haggard by anguish boldly spoke to Ravana when he addressed her in that way, duly placing a blade of straw in between herself and Ravana.
vrm.3.56 "Even if you are unkillable either by Gods or by Rakshasas, you Ravana, you will not be disenthralled by Rama while you are alive, for you hatched a very great animosity in him against you.
vrm.3.56 Thus Seetha castigated Ravana.
vrm.3.56 a Vaidehi on speaking those highly caustic words angrily to Ravana in this way, she that Maithili spoke no more in that matter.
vrm.3.56 b, a On hearing Seetha s scathing and hair raising censures, then Ravana retorted with these intimidatory chides.
vrm.3.56 b, Thus on saying those harsh words, Ravana, the one who makes his enemies to bewail, and who is now infuriated said this sentence to the guarding Rakshasi s.
vrm.3.56 Just by that order of Ravana those Rakshasi s of grotesque and ugly appearance have obediently made palm fold to him and encircled Maithili.
vrm.3.56 That king Ravana paced in an earth shattering manner as though to cleave it and clearly said this to those Rakshasi s with ghastly look.
vrm.3.56 When Ravana has clearly ordered, those Rakshasi s on their part took Maithili to Ashoka garden.
vrm.3.64 She that River Godavari has not informed Rama about Vaidehi just out of fear on recalling the mien and manoeuvres of malefic minded Ravana, lest Ravana may drain her away.
vrm.3.64 these two armours, one belonging to the combatant from this chariot that is ripped off by Jatayu and fallen from the body of Ravana, and the other belonging to this charioteer, both are encrusted fully with arrows when Jatayu winnowed the very same arrows shot by Ravana
vrm.3.67 "Oh, boy Rama, blest is your eternality, for whom you are searching as with the search of a rejuvenescent herb in the vast of forest, Ravana stole that lady and my lives, too.
vrm.3.67 "I have seen that lady while being stolen by brute forced Ravana when you and even Lakshmana absented from her.
vrm.3.67 and in a combat Ravana is rendered as one with utterly battered chariot.
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 Rama on seeing that eagle felled to ground by the atrocious Ravana, said this sentence to Soumitri who is an asset for good
vrm.3.68 What is the reason for Ravana in stealing that noblewoman, and even what is the wrong I have committed in his respect, keeping which in
vrm.3.68 view that Ravana stole my ladylove.
vrm.3.68 Ravana abducted Seetha.
vrm.3.68 In which spell of time Ravana has gone taking away Seetha, that spell is named as Vinda.
vrm.3.68 oh, Kakutstha, he that Ravana is unmindful of that fact and stole Seetha only to loose her.
vrm.3.68 Ravana, will ruin himself, as with a fish which swallows a baited fishhook.
vrm.3.68 b, c Impractical is your anguishing for the daughter of Janaka, as you will delight yourself with Vaidehi in no time, on killing that Ravana in the vanguard of a war.
vrm.3.68 Lakshmana, this eagle which has dashed to rescue Seetha in order to render help to me is slain by that brute forced Ravana, only because of me, you see.
vrm.3.68 That king of eagle Jatayu, who has performed a creditworthy deed of stalling and combating Ravana, but who is felled by that Ravana, went away to the merited and auspicious heavenly realms of his own, as and when consecrated by sublime sage like Rama.
vrm.3.71 b, a Ravana" conveniently stole my illustrious wife when myself and my brother exited from Janasthana.
vrm.3.72 b, a Oh, Raghava, he expedites giant bodied Vanaras in all directions to search for her, who is agonised by your parting, and he quests after the residence of Ravana for that comely lady Maithili.
vrm.4.1 dur anvaya wrong parsing of words in verse "If Ravana goes to the netherworlds, or still deeper worlds from there, oh my brother, still he will not live, Raghava.
vrm.4.5 Ravana" stole the wife of this principled one and great soul Rama when dwelling in forests, such as he is, he came seeking your refuge.
vrm.4.5 During the friendly conversation of Rama and Sugreeva, the left eyes of Seetha, Vali and Ravana that bear similitude with lotuses, golden orbs, and fireballs respectively have fluttered equally.
vrm.4.6 and she was writhing in the flanks of Ravana like the wife of Naga s lord.
vrm.4.7 "As to how you will satisfy yourself on killing Ravana along with his henchmen, and as to how to you pride yourself thereby, I will make it happen in that way in no longer a time.
vrm.4.7 "But, trying to search for Maithili and that furious, evil minded Rakshasa Ravana, is your endeavour.
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.4.26 "On the advent of Kaartika month, october, say post rainy season, you shall do your best in the cause of Ravana s elimination, and this is our covenant, and hence oh, gentle Sugreeva, for now enter your mansion, be enthroned in kingdom as well, and exhilarate your friends.
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.4.27 "Oh, Kakutstha, you are capable to inverse the order of earth along with all of its oceans, forests, and mountains, then what to speak of that Ravana, all the more.
vrm.4.27 "Look forward to the autumnal season, as this season that has come is of heavy rains, and thereafter, you will eradicate that Ravana along with his city state and his followers.
vrm.4.28 like the squirming of penitent Vaidehi in the grasp of Ravana.
vrm.4.28 "Also my anguish is surpassing, definitely the rains have surpassed the pathways, that enemy Ravana is an unsurpassed one.
vrm.4.30 He is insecure, kingdom forfeited, persecuted by Ravana, a dismal, came from a distant home, lovelorn and sought shelter in me alone.
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.4.35 "Without eliminating those unassailable and guise changing Rakshasas, it is impracticable to eliminate him who has abducted Maithili, namely Ravana.
vrm.4.35 "Oh, Lakshmana, it is impossible to kill those Rakshasas, or that Ravana, the evil doer and abductor of Seetha, without any assistance, more so to Sugreeva.
vrm.4.35 "This way Vali was saying and that king of Vanaras is well informed in these aspects, isn t it! But how Ravana mustered up these many troops is unclear to me, and I am saying what I heard from Vali.
vrm.4.36 Virtue souled Raghava reacquires Seetha, and even exterminates Ravana by himself with his own resplendence, while I and my assistance remain only in name.
vrm.4.36 Lakshmana, I just can tread behind that king of people, Rama, on his charging to eliminate enemy Ravana along with all of his vanguards, that s all.
vrm.4.38 "Those vanara s who are combative in wars, and those who can fetch Maithili on eliminating Ravana in war, will be approaching you soon.
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.4.39 "As soon as possible I wish to eliminate that Ravana with sharp arrows, as has been done by the enemy slyer Indra when he eliminated the insolent father of Sachi Devi, namely Puloma.
vrm.4.40 Likewise, oh, well informed one that place in which Ravana dwells it is to be determined, at the outset.
vrm.4.40 "Only on knowing about Vaidehi, also about the dwelling place of Ravana, I will order for the timely action at that time, that too, after deliberating with you.
vrm.4.40 "There in the East, the forests, mountains and impassable places shall be searched for the princess from Videha kingdom, namely Seetha, and even for the residency of Ravana.
vrm.4.40 You have to scout thereabout for Vaidehi as well as for Ravana, at those beautiful ghats, say littorals of that Shona River, and in the amazing forests alongshore.
vrm.4.40 "On the top of that Mountain Sunrise, and even in its cave and forests of that island Ravana is to be searched, together with Seetha.
vrm.4.40 "Ransack that mountain s peak, even thereabout the rapids and caverns of that mountain for Vaidehi, and even for Ravana.
vrm.4.40 "You shall comeback within a month on finding out Vaidehi and the residency of Ravana after your reaching Mountain Sunrise.
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.4.42 b, a Seetha" shall be searched along with the residency of Ravana on the mountains that are sitting pretty on the seashore, as well as in the forests on those mountains.
vrm.4.42 Vaidehi" is to be searched on the delightful cliffs of that Mountain Cakravaan and also in its spacious caves, together with Ravana, and search for her here, there, and everywhere.
vrm.4.42 "There on the delightful cliffs and spacious caves of that Mountain Varaaha, including that city Praagjyotisha, Ravana shall be searched together with Vaidehi.
vrm.4.42 "On all those mountains, lakesides and riversides Vaidehi shall be searched together with Ravana, far and wide.
vrm.4.42 "You shall return within a month on knowing about Vaidehi and also about the residency of Ravana, or on your reaching Mountain Astagiri, say Mountain Dusk.
vrm.4.43 In the stands of Lodhra trees, Padmaka trees and in the woods of Devadaru, or Deodar trees, Ravana is to be searched there and there, together with Seetha.
vrm.4.43 "Let Ravana be quested after in the segments of woods, at waterfalls, and even in caverns of that mountain, together with Vaidehi.
vrm.4.43 Ravana" shall be searched on Mountain Kailasa, and even in the caves of nearby mountains which will be shining like moon, together with Vaidehi.
vrm.4.43 Even then, you search for Ravana therein that tunnel.
vrm.4.45 Well motivated this way by the king Sugreeva those vanara lieutenants put their fortitude into boastful words and said, "we lead forth Seetha, we wish to kill Ravana.
vrm.4.45 "I will kill Ravana single handedly if he chances on battlefield, and then on drubbing the other Rakshasas I will quickly bring back Janaka s daughter, Seetha.
vrm.4.47 "Search is conducted in the compacted, lopsided, and impenetrable provinces, and colossal beings are hunted out and killed presuming that Ravana might have assumed those odd shapes, and the impassable provinces are searched high and low, time and again.
vrm.4.48 But not finding the daughter of Janaka or even her kidnapper Ravana there, those Vanaras who are the perfecters of that which is acceptable to Sugreeva, have entered another fearsome forest.
vrm.4.48 b, a Angada, the son of Vali, then presumed him who is onrushing as Ravana and saying, he is Ravana.
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.4.52 "The king of all the world and one similar to Mahendra and Rain god, such an illustrious Rama of Dasharatha entered Dandaka forest with his bother Lakshmana, even along with his wife Vaidehi, but Ravana coercively abducted his wife from Janasthana.
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.4.56 a "He that kingly eagle Jatayu who is killed by Ravana is a happy soul, and he is even relieved from the fear of Sugreeva as he departed on the Avenue of Sublimity.
vrm.4.57 Ravana" forcibly abducted his wife from Janasthana, namely Seetha, the princess from Videha kingdom, and a kingly eagle named Jatayu, who is a friend of Rama s father Dasharatha, has seen her while she was being abducted by skyway.
vrm.4.57 a Jatayu" is overly tired when he made Ravana s chariot defective and withheld Maithili from abduction as he is senescent, then Ravana killed him in that conflict.
vrm.4.57 b, c "Thus that eagle was killed by that mighty Ravana, but solemnised by the obsequies performed by Rama, he departed on a sublime avenue to heavens.
vrm.4.58 Oh, vanara s, of whom it is enounced that mighty Ravana
vrm.4.58 If you are the brother of Jatayu, if you have heard whatever I have said in praise of Jatayu, and if you are aware of the whereabouts of Ravana.
vrm.4.58 knavish Rakshasa Ravana, please inform us.
vrm.4.58 by the black hearted Rakshasa Ravana.
vrm.4.58 Literally, he is the son of Vishravasa and brother of Kubera, and he presides over the city named Lanka and he is known as Ravana.
vrm.4.58 a Therein that Lanka pitiable Vaidehi wearing ochry silk sari is lodged in the palace chambers of Ravana, highly sentineled and baulked by Rakshasi s, and you can find king Janaka s daughter Maithili in there.
vrm.4.58 island in southern ocean, which ocean spans in an overalled width of hundred Yojana s from this side of seashore, then landing on the other seashore you can see Lanka secluded all around by ocean, and in such a water walled Lanka you can see Ravana.
vrm.4.58 Staying here I am clearly seeing Ravana and like that Janaki.
vrm.4.58 On deriving indication form Sampati regarding Seetha, Ravana and Lanka, those returnless vanara s returned to their search while their gladness returning to them.
vrm.4.59 The great sages who approached me in firmament have said to me, fortunately Seetha is alive, somehow he that Ravana has gone away with Seetha who in fact is to be protected by one and all like you, anyhow your are blest without a doubt.
vrm.4.59 They have also informed on showing him who is abducting her as Ravana, the king of Rakshasas.
vrm.4.59 b, a Even on listening that it has not come to my mind to dare Ravana.
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.4.62 She that Maithili, a highly privileged and prestigious lady does not touch any food, though she is highly lured by banquets and feasts by that Ravana, for she will be sunken in sorrow.
vrm.4.63 Though I am aware of the valour of that dirty minded Ravana, I was rebuking my son saying, how you have not saved Maithili? b, a My son has not effectuated my cherish even on hearing the bewail of Seetha, or at least on hearing that Rama and Lakshmana are separated from Seetha, or at least on knowing my friendship with Dasharatha.
vrm.4.64 On hearing the words of Sampati, the Vanaras have delightedly come to the ocean to go to the residence of Ravana, longing for a glimpse of Seetha.
vrm.4.67 b, a Then that Vanara who is the son of Vayu and a selfsame of Vayu shinned up that towering mountain Mahendra, as he is an enemy subjugator about to subjugate the arch rival Ravana, where that mountain is hedged in with diverse flowers, its pastures are the sweethearts of deer, it is constrictive with diverse flowers of ever flowering, ever fruiting trees and with the flowers of climbers as well, and where Lions and Tigers are freely moving and ruttish Elephants love it, and where the flights of Birds are uproarious, and pent up
vrm.5.1 After that, Hanuma, the destroyer of foes, desired to travel in the sky where Chaaranas tread, to search for Seetha, who was taken away by Ravana.
vrm.5.1 "I will go to the city of Lanka, ruled by Ravana just like an arrow released by Rama will go, with wind like speed.
vrm.5.1 If I do not see Seetha there in heaven, I will get Ravana the king of raakshasaas tied up in chains without any effort.
vrm.5.1 I will, in all events, return successfully along with Seetha or I will get Lanka along with Ravana after uprooting it.
vrm.5.1 "When that Sri Rama, with a bitter enmity towards Rakshasas, was diverted in another task, His famed wife Seetha had been taken away by Ravana.
vrm.5.2 The glorious Hanuma neared the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana, and saw the city which looked like the city of Gods in heaven, decorated by moats filled with lotuses and water lilies, which was well protected, since the time of Seetha s abduction, by Ravana and by Rakshasas with horrifying voices roaming around, which was surrounded by a golden boundary wall, that beautiful great city consisted of houses equal in height to mountains and which looked like autumnal clouds, with white and elevated main streets, decorated with flags and pennons, with excellent golden hued archways adorned with sculpted rows of vines.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw that city of Lanka ruled by Ravana the king of Rakshasas, constructed by Visvakarma, and which looked as though it were floating in the sky.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw that Lanka s great protection and the ocean and Ravana the horrible enemy and thought thus.
vrm.5.2 "Even if He reaches this very difficult and impenetrable Lanka ruled by Ravana, what can that Sri Rama with mighty arms do"?
vrm.5.2 "By what idea can I see Seetha the daughter of Janaka, unseen by the wicked Ravana, the king of the Rakshasas.
vrm.5.2 "If I were to be seen by rakshasas, this task of Sri Rama, with a famed mind, who desires the slaying of Ravana will become wasteful.
vrm.5.2 "Entering the unapproachable city of Lanka at night and searching all the mansion of Ravana, I can see Seetha.
vrm.5.2 Hanuma saw that city of Lanka of great fame, with white, closely built buildings having golden windows and doorways of great value, consisting of Rakshasas of great strength and ruled by the hands of Ravana.
vrm.5.3 That Hanuma, best among Vanaras, the intellectual son of Vayu, one with great might, stood on the mountain called Lamba with its high peaks equalling a high cloud, gathered courage and entered at night the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana and filled with beautiful forests and places of water such as lakes.
vrm.5.3 Seeing that city of Ravana, which was best among cities, a wealthy city, a beautiful and auspicious city, that powerful Hanuma thought thus.
vrm.5.3 "It is not possible for anyone else to oppose this city, by strength alone, which is being guarded by armies of Ravana with raised weapons.
vrm.5.3 Seeing that best among Vanaras Hanuma there, that Lanka ruled by Ravana, rose up herself with a horrific appearance of face an eyes.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! It is indeed not possible for you to enter this city of Lanka which is protected by Ravana s forces and strongly guarded all around.
vrm.5.3 I wait for the orders of the king of Rakshasas Ravana, the great one.
vrm.5.3 "The destruction has come for Ravana the evil minded king and to all Rakshasas due to Seetha.
vrm.5.3 "O best aming Vanaras! For that reason, enter the city of Lanka ruled by Ravana and do here whatever tasks you want to.
vrm.5.4 He also saw roaring Rakshasas who came together to praise Ravana.
vrm.5.4 He saw many spies of Ravana and a big army of Rakshasas which stood surrounding the royal highway in the central zone of city.
vrm.5.4 Hanuma saw at the front of inner city, a hundred thousand central protective force which was attentive and was positioned there at the command of Ravana.
vrm.5.4 That Hanuma saw Ravana s house with a golden doorway.
vrm.5.4 The great Hanuma entered secretly Ravana s inner city which was equal to paradise, rendered noisy by neighing of Horses and tinkling of ornaments, by chariots, vehicles and aerial cars and decorated by auspicious Elephants and Horses and great Elephants with four tusks and by Birds and animals in heat.
vrm.5.4 Hanuma entered the inner city of Ravana which was filled with gold, which had a golden court yard with a central area decorated by pearls and diamonds of great value and sprinkled daily with water containing superb algallocum and sandal wood.
vrm.5.6 After that, the glorious Hanuma neared the house of Ravana shining with the golden hue of Sun, surrounded by a compound wall.
vrm.5.6 Ravana s house consisted of surprising archways decorated with sliver and gold, strange entrances and beautiful doors.
vrm.5.6 Ravana s house waited upon by men on Elephants, warriors, people with removed tiredness, drivers of Elephants, by undefeatable Horses, and by charioteers.
vrm.5.6 Hanuma saw Ravana s house with protective shields made of lion and tiger skins, decorated with ivory, gold and silver, being roamed always by strange chariots with great sound.
vrm.5.6 Hanuma saw Ravana s house filled with a lot of diamonds, having valuable seats and utensils, abode of great warriors, with great chariots and great utensils.
vrm.5.6 Having happy women, the abode of Ravana with the tinkling of best jewellery had a sound like that of an ocean.
vrm.5.6 The great Hanuma saw the wealthy Ravana s huge house, inscrutable like an ocean, like a noiseless ocean, with a roof embedded with great diamondsand filled with great diamonds.
vrm.5.6 Hanuma walked about there in the near hood of Ravana.
vrm.5.6 The glorious Hanuma passing everyone s houses all round, there after neared the house of Ravana.
vrm.5.6 Hanuma best among Vanaras, tiger among Vanaras, moving about saw Rakshas women, those who were sleeping near to Ravana, those who had horrific eyes, those who had Sulaas, Mudgaras in their hands, those who had Shaktis and Tomaras.
vrm.5.6 Hanuma saw in that house of Ravana a variety of army divisions and also Rakshasas those who had huge bodies having different weapons raise up.
vrm.5.6 There Hanuma saw in the house of Ravana, the king of rakshasas, army divisions in thousands decorated with gold, covered with heaps of gold, equalling the Sun who has fully come up.
vrm.5.6 That Hanuma the son of Vayu saw in the house of Ravana the king of rakshasas, palanquins of various shapes, wonderful bowers, art galleries and other pleasure houses which were constructed with wooden mountains, house for sexual delight and a beautiful diurnal house.
vrm.5.6 That building shone by the rays of diamonds, by the splendour of Ravana like the Sun by rays.
vrm.5.7 Thereafter Hanuma saw the best house of the lord of rakshasas, having the appearance of a cloud, soul captivating one having a beautiful form made of gold which has no comparison, suitable of Ravana s might
vrm.5.7 Hanuma saw Ravana s house like heaven thrown upon earth, effulgent with glory, embedded with variety of diamonds covered by flowers of various trees, like the summit of a mountain covered by pollen.
vrm.5.7 Thereafter that Hanuma nearing that city of Lanka worshipped by Rakshasas, ruled by arms of ten headed Ravana, moving thereabout became very gloomy on not seeing that Seetha well worshipped by all and greatly conquered by the virtues of Her husband Sri Rama Thereafter then the heart of the great souled Hanuma who contemplated supreme spirit in many ways with a disciplined mind following righteous path, with good observant eyes, moving about in the city of Lanka became greatly sorrowful on not seeing Seetha.
vrm.5.9 That building of Ravana filled with many edifices was half a Yojana long and one Yojana tall.
vrm.5.9 Hanuma, the destructor of enemies, moved around in all directions searching for Seetha the wide eyed daughter of King of Videha Thereafter, Hanuma the glorious one neared and observed the best residence of Rakshasas and the house of Ravana, containing Elephants with four tusks and also those with three tusks, those with two tusks and still not crowded.
vrm.5.9 That building surrounded by the wives of Ravana, by Rakshasi s, and princesses brought by strength, was like an ocean filled with crocodiles, big fishes, sharks and other fishes, moved by the speed of wind, and together with serpants.
vrm.5.9 Whatever wealth is at Kubera, whatever riches at Indra with green Horses, all that affluence was at Ravana s house.
vrm.5.9 Whatever was the fortune of Kubera the King of Yakshas, of Yama and of Varuna, the same fortune or even greater treasure was at this house of Ravana.
vrm.5.9 Whatever wonderful aeroplane by the name of Pushpaka, decorated with all kinds of precious stones, made by Visvakarma in heaven for lord Brahma, whatever plane Kubera obtained by great austerity from Lord Brahma, Ravana obtained that plane by prowess defeating Kubera.
vrm.5.9 That sweet smell was as though saying thus to that Hanuma Come here! quot like a relative to a best relative pointing to there wherever that Ravana was.
vrm.5.9 Hanuma started thereafter there in that direction and saw an auspicious great hall, close to heart of Ravana, like a delightful best woman.
vrm.5.9 Like a mother, then that hall governed by Ravana caused satisfaction to all five sensory organs with all the excellent five objects of the senses.
vrm.5.9 Hanuma thought thus This building shines by the light of lamps and the brilliance of Ravana and also due to the radiance of jewellery.
vrm.5.9 That hall of Ravana s being shone by those women, glittered like a calm cloudless sky in autumn shone by stars.
vrm.5.9 Those edges of clothes with various beautiful colours, shone at the base of Ravana s wives throats like hoisted flags of beautiful shine.
vrm.5.9 Then comforting breath from the faces of those women, by nature fragrant with the smell of liquor made of Sarkara, served Ravana.
vrm.5.9 Some women of Ravana smelled co wives faces again and again imagining them to be face of Ravana.
vrm.5.9 Those best women with greatly devoted mind in Ravana, then not being on own will, brought delight only to their co wives.
vrm.5.9 That group of women of Ravana, tied by each other as garland with mixed group of flowers, with beautiful shoulders entwined promiscuously, hair like an exalted garden with a flower garland tied together of creepers in bloom due to the caress of the lord of wind in the vernal in the month of Vaisakha, with entwined beautiful trees.
vrm.5.9 While Ravana slept comfortably, golden lamps shining brilliant, were as though seeing without closing eyes, those women of various glows.
vrm.5.9 Women of royal sages, brahmanas and Rakshasas and of Gandharvas, of Rakshasas all those unmarried girls surrendered from lust to Ravana.
vrm.5.9 All those women had been stolen by Ravana with a desire for war, some together with heat of youth obtained Ravana being desired by god of love.
vrm.5.9 There, even one woman had not been obtained forcefully by the strong Ravana, except for that daughter of Janaka, Seetha.
vrm.5.9 Following thought occurred to Hanuma with a pious mind It would have been good for this Ravana if the virtuous wife of Rama had been left happy with her husband in the same such manner as these wives of the king of rakshasas.
vrm.5.10 Hanuma saw Ravana in that house, equaling a cloud, wearing earrings with a brilliant shine with red eyes and with long arms wearing gold clothes.
vrm.5.10 Ravana was filled with excellent jewellery, with a good appearance, with an ability to assume desired form, resembling mount Mandara in sleep, together with groups of trees and bushes.
vrm.5.10 That Hanuma, best among Vanaras neared Ravana, became very gloomy and moved away with great dread, as though from a hissing serpent.
vrm.5.10 Thereafter the great Hanuma neared staircase, sought another dais and observed closely Ravana.
vrm.5.10 The excellent couch of the sleeping Ravana shone like a great lake when a scented Elephant resides in it.
vrm.5.10 That Hanuma also saw the wealthy Ravana s arms tied with golden armlets thrown apart, resembling flag staffs raised in honor of Indra.
vrm.5.10 These arms of Ravana were corpulent with well grown and equal strong shoulders proportionate to body, with knees and thumbs of good characteristics, with good fingers and palms.
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.5.10 The leader of Vanaras saw those wives of Ravana with faces with radiance of moon, adorned with beautiful earrings, wearing jewellery and flower garlands which were not worn out.
vrm.5.10 Hanuma saw wives of Ravana with skill in dance and musical instruments, who obtained the shoulders of Ravana wearing the best jewellery and being in sleep.
vrm.5.10 Women of that Ravana being tired from lustful passion and exertion and having lean waists slept at first opportunity.
vrm.5.11 In the middle of that group of women, Ravana with great arms shone like a bull in the middle of Cows in a big cow pen.
vrm.5.11 That Ravana himself surrounded by those women, shone like a great Elephant surrounded by she Elephants in a great forest.
vrm.5.11 The best among Vanaras saw in that wealthy Ravana s house a bar also, consisting of all desirables.
vrm.5.11 There in that Ravana s house, some women had fair and white complexion some best women were black, some women had a body of golden complexion.
vrm.5.11 Hanuma with great radiance thus saw entire Ravana s house completely but did not see Seetha.
vrm.5.11 “All Ravana s women who were in faith could have been seen by me to my mind there indeed was not even a little disturbance”.
vrm.5.11 “For that reason all this Ravana s house has been search by me with a pure mind Seetha alone cannot be seen.
vrm.5.12 “That daughter of King Janaka died of fear seeing the wives of Ravana with crooked appearances horrible ones without radiance with great faces with long and crooked eyes.
vrm.5.12 Women of Ravana have been seen.
vrm.5.12 I will search all those regions ruled by Ravana not yet seen.
vrm.5.12 That Hanuma in that city of Ravana whatever region he did not go that region was not there even for four angulas.
vrm.5.12 Naga women who had been stolen forcefully, being defeated by Ravana had been seen there by Hanuma, not that Seetha That Hanuma with great arms, the wise one, the son of Vayu not seeing that Seetha and seeing other women became depressed again and again.
vrm.5.13 The simian Hanuma went far from the house of Ravana and not seeing Seetha, the daughter of King Janaka, said these words: “The city of Lanka has been mostly explored by me attempting for the pleasure of Rama.
vrm.5.13 “It has been said by the eagle King Sampati that Seetha is here in the house of Ravana.
vrm.5.13 “Otherwise Seetha belonging to Videha born in Mithila and daughter of king Janaka Can she be helplessly together with the evil minded Ravana.
vrm.5.13 “I think while Ravana fearing Ramas’ arrows flew quickly carrying Seetha, she might have fallen down in the middle of the journey.
vrm.5.13 “I think due to great speed of Ravana and due to the torture of Ravanas’ shoulders the life has been given up by that noble one with wide eyes.
vrm.5.13 “Or has the austere Seetha been eaten by this Ravana, the evil minded one while she was protecting her chastity without any relatives near her.
vrm.5.13 “Otherwise not being evil with black eyes, She may have been eaten by the wives of Ravana with evil thoughts.
vrm.5.13 “I think otherwise being put in the house of Ravana Seetha is definitely crying like a caged myna.
vrm.5.13 “Otherwise I will kill Ravana with ten heads, with great prowess.
vrm.5.13 “Otherwise carrying this Ravana over the surface of ocean I will take him to Rama like an animal to the lord of animals.
vrm.5.13 “There definitely guards will be protecting assigned, trees, omnipresent Lord Vayu also will be blowing by without force, and by me this body has been made small for the sake of Sri Rama and to avoid Ravana.
vrm.5.13 “When will I see that noble face with a high nose, with white teeth without any injuries with a bright smile, with eyes resembling lotus petals with sight equaling the splendor of clear full moon?” “How that powerless Seetha, a helpless one, forcefully taken away by the mean vile Ravana with a cruel action, with a horribly decorated form will fall in the range of my sight today.
vrm.5.14 This Ashoka garden of evil souled Ravana is definitely beautiful it is well decorated by Champaka trees, by sandal trees and by Vakula trees.
vrm.5.15 Like fame that has fallen down by a false scandal, tortured by the obstruction caused to Rama, emaciated due to the abduction by Ravana.
vrm.5.16 “For the sake of this Seetha, the wide eyed one, Vali of great strength has been killed, Kabandha also equalling Ravana in strength has been felled.
vrm.5.16 SriRama likes to see this Seetha who is endowed with excellent character and tormented by Ravana, like a thirsty one for a place where water is available freely.
vrm.5.17 Being held captive by Ravana, without any relatives, She was like a she Elephant without herd, being detained by a lion.
vrm.5.18 Thereafter Ravana with great arms and great prowess was woken by the sounds of various auspicious musical instruments pleasing to the ear.
vrm.5.18 Together with all ornaments wearing great glory that Ravana entered that Ashoka garden having a lot of trees with all fruits and flowers.
vrm.5.18 Ravana entered that great wonderful Ashoka garden together with lakes, shone by various flowers, brilliant with Birds always in rut.
vrm.5.18 Ravana entered Ashoka garden seeing archways of gold and gems crowded by artificial deer of various kinds ravishing eyes and mind, filled with animals of various kinds, together with fallen fruits and full of trees.
vrm.5.18 While He was going only a hundred of women followed that Ravana like Deva and Gandharva women following Indra.
vrm.5.18 One woman to the right of Ravana held with her right hand a vessel with gem stones filled with liqour.
vrm.5.18 With sleepy eyes best women of Ravana followed mighty husband like lightning following a cloud.
vrm.5.18 Husband of those women, of great might, who was surrendered to lust, that Ravana also who was dull witted, with his mind interested in Seetha shone with a slow and beautiful gait.
vrm.5.18 Hanuma the Vanara saw that Ravana also, performer of deeds without an equal, with unfathomable might and virility, reaching the entrance region.
vrm.5.18 Wettened by fragrant oil, being carried in front of Ravana, Hanuma saw Ravana being shone in all directions by many lamps.
vrm.5.18 Hanuma saw Ravana together with lust, vanity and intoxication, with wide red eyes which were slanted, like the god of love in person with bow kept at a distance.
vrm.5.18 Hanuma saw Ravana playfully readjusting his excellent upper garment with the luster of churned nectar froth, without stain,slipping being entangled in armlet.
vrm.5.18 Hanuma blended in a branch full of leaves covered by groups of leaves and flowers started to see that Ravana as though coming near Him.
vrm.5.18 Thereafter Hanuma, the best among Vanaras looking in all directions saw best women of Ravana full of beauty and youth.
vrm.5.18 King of great fame, Ravana, together with those women with good appearance entered that garden resounded by animals and Birds.
vrm.5.18 That great Vanara with great brilliance saw that Ravana with glory.
vrm.5.18 The son of god of wind Vanara Hanuma of great brilliance thinking thus "This long armed one is Ravana", jumped down.
vrm.5.18 Thus Hanuma although of terrible energy was overshadowed by Ravana s brilliance and became rooted behind a group of leaves and was concealed.
vrm.5.18 That Ravana neared Seetha with black hair, with charming limbs with well knit breasts, with black corners of eyes, wishing to see Her.
vrm.5.19 Thereafter at that time Seetha a princess without any blame of excellent limbs shook like a plantain tree in wind on seeing Ravana the king of rakshasas endowed with beauty and youth adorned with excellent ornaments.
vrm.5.19 Ravana saw Seetha protected by batches of Rakshasas looking miserable being struck with grief like a ship in danger in the sea.
vrm.5.19 Ravana saw Seetha sitting down on uncovered land, with a firm resolve, like a branch of a tree fallen down on earth being torn from the tree.
vrm.5.19 Ravana saw Seetha with a stange body with dirt as ornament, who although suited to decorate with ornaments was without ornaments.
vrm.5.19 Seetha was like a celestial being, tormented by grief and by thought with joined palms, desiring the defeat of Ravana at the hands of Sri Rama.
vrm.5.19 Ravana was trying to allure and threatening death to Seetha who was looking at every direction, crying, without blame, with good eye lids and reddish and white eyes, with an excessive vow to follow Sri Rama.
vrm.5.20 Ravana conveyed in significant words to that Seetha who was surrounded by Rakshasis, wretched, without happiness and pitiable.
vrm.5.21 Being tormented by grief, in a pitiful state, with excellent limbs, devoted to husband, thinking about husband alone, with pleasant smiles Seetha was sobbing, shivering and placing a straw in between herself and Ravana spoke thus in reply.
vrm.5.21 Seetha with renown thus speaking to that Ravana, turned back and spoke words again.
vrm.5.21 "O Ravana! When there is destruction of a short sighted one being hit by his own deeds, a sinner, living beings will be happy.
vrm.5.21 "About you who is a sinner thus being destroyed, people who have been humiliated by you being happy will speak thus: The cruel Ravana by God s grace has got this danger
vrm.5.21 "O Ravana! Let me meet together with Rama like a female Elephant with a male Elephant in a forest.
vrm.5.21 O Ravana! If you do in a different way, you will get slayed.
vrm.5.22 Ravana listening to Seetha s words which were harsh thereafter replied to Seetha unpleasant words which are seen to be pleasant.
vrm.5.22 The king of Rakshasas Ravana speaking thus to Seetha, full of anger and fury spoke subsequent word to Seetha.
vrm.5.22 Seeing Seetha being frightened by Ravana those Deva and Gandharva maidens grieved with troubled eyes.
vrm.5.22 Consoled by them Seetha proud of virtuous conduct spoke words beneficial to self to the king of Rakshasas Ravana.
vrm.5.22 "O Ravana! Although you are suited to be burnt into ashes, not having the mandate of Rama and preserving austerity, I am not reducing you into ashes with my glory.
vrm.5.22 King of rakshasas Ravana listening to Seetha s words turned around his cruel eyes and saw Seetha.
vrm.5.22 Ravana was qual to a black cloud, with big shoulders and neck with the strength and gait of a lion, glorious with radiant tip of tongue and eyes.
vrm.5.22 Like Mount Mandara tied by Vasuki for producing nectar, Ravana was well tied by a black big thread.
vrm.5.22 With red eyes due to anger Ravana was looking at Seetha sighing like a serpant and spoke to Seetha.
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 Ravana ordered one with a single eye, one with a single ear and one with ears as covering, one with cow s wars, one with ears of an Elephant, one with dangling ears, one without ears and one with the feet of an Elephant and one with the feet of a Horse, one with feet of a cow,one with hair over feet, one with a single eye and one with a single foot, one with big feet, one without feet, one with a big head and neck,one with big breasts and stomach, and one with big mouth and eyes, one with a long tongue, one without tongue, one without nose, one with the face of a Lion, one with the face of a cow,one with the face of a Pig.
vrm.5.22 Ravana thus ordered again and again with a mind full of lust and anger frightened Seetha.
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.5.22 That Ravana departing was as though shaking the earth and entered his house with the lustre of blazing sun shine.
vrm.5.22 Deva and Gandharva maidens and Naga maidens surrounding Ravana in all directions entered that best among houses.
vrm.5.22 That Ravana frightening Seetha who was steadfastly intent on virtue and who was shaking, leaving Seetha, infatuated by love, entered his own house which was shining.
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 After Ravana left and obtained gynaeceum, those Rakshasas with horrible appearances went running to Seetha.
vrm.5.23 "O Seetha! You are not respscting becoming wife of Ravana born in the family of Paulastya, best among men, a great soul with ten heads.
vrm.5.23 "O wide eyed one! Ravana who makes enemies to cry, is Visrava s son.
vrm.5.23 You are suited to become Ravana s wife.
vrm.5.23 "Why will you not get wifehood of Ravana who is proud of his might, valiant, who will not turn back in wars, who is strong together with valour.
vrm.5.23 "The mighty Ravana can leave dear respectable wife who among all wives is most fortunate and can obtain you.
vrm.5.23 Ravana" leaving gynaeceum filled with thousand women and shone by various best things can obtain you.
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 "O vile one! Why are you not desiring wifehood of such Ravana, fulfilled in all respects, who is a great soul and lord of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.23 "O one with good eyebrows! O Seetha! By the fear of whom trees shed a shower of flowers, whenever Ravana desired mountains and clouds will shed water, why you are not making mind to be the wife of such Ravana, who is the king of Rakshasas and king of kings.
vrm.5.24 "Sport according to your comfort coming together with the king of Rakshasas Ravana enjoying luxuries of the three worlds and taking him as husband.
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 Being angry a lot and grasping axes quickly spoke as follows: "This woman is not suited to have the king of Rakshasas Ravana as husband.
vrm.5.24 "Obtain as husband Ravana who is the lord of all Rakshasas, bold and handsome, like Indra the lord of Devas, able one and liberal with a pleasing appearance to all.
vrm.5.24 "Leaving Rama who is a human and miserable, seek refuge in Ravana.
vrm.5.24 You have entered the terrible gynaeceum of Ravana.
vrm.5.24 "Withheld in the house of Ravana well protected by us, even Devendra himself is not capable to protect you.
vrm.5.24 Have as husband Ravana the lord of all Rakshasas.
vrm.5.24 "Seeing this woman with eyes like that of a deer, with moving breasts due to fear, abducted by Ravana, there occured to me a great desire.
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.5.26 "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 "Whoever Ravana with a cruel nature is desiring to solicit me, that Ravana does not know him to be refused he does not know his race.
vrm.5.26 "Even if cut or if divided into parts in blazing fire, I will not reach Ravana.
vrm.5.26 "I am withheld by the Rakshasa Ravana with little strength.
vrm.5.26 My husband is indeed capable of killing Ravana in a war.
vrm.5.26 After knowing will that glorious Rama tolerate this outrage?" "Whoever Jatayu nearing Rama will have let known to Rama that Seetha was stolen, that king of Vultures has been killed by Ravana in war.
vrm.5.26 "A great deed has been done by that Jatayu, thus protecting me, although of old age, standing in a dual combat with Ravana.
vrm.5.26 Rama" will blow away the city of Lanka, will dry up the great ocean, will destroy the name and fame of Ravana.
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 "Will that Rama who is a strong man with red eye corners know me to be in the house of Ravana.
vrm.5.26 "Whatever time has been ordered by this cruel and vilest of men Ravana, this time has come to me.
vrm.5.26 That death decreed to me does not hold good to this evil one Ravana.
vrm.5.26 "Or Rama and Lakshmana the warrior brothers may have been killed by the evil soul king of Rakshasas Ravana by deceit.
vrm.5.26 "Left by dear Rama with a well known mind coming under the control of sinful Ravana, such I will leave breath of life.
vrm.5.27 Some went to tell that to Ravana the evil minded one.
vrm.5.27 Ravana" also was seen by me on earth sprinkled with oil, with red clothes, with garlands tied with Oleander flowers, drinking oil and intoxicated.
vrm.5.27 "Now Ravana fallen down on to earth from Pushpaka aeroplane having the head shaved, wearing black clothes again was seen to be pulled by a woman.
vrm.5.27 "Wearing red garlands and unguents, drinking oil, laughing, dancing, with a confused mind, with agitated senses, Ravana went by a chariot tied by Donkeys.
vrm.5.27 "Undertaking southern direction, Ravana went quickly by a donkey.
vrm.5.27 Again it was seen by me that the king of Rakshasas Ravana stupefied with fear, fell down from the donkey with head down.
vrm.5.27 "That Ravana rising up quickly, together with perplexity, distressed with fear, excited by passion, being naked, like a mad man, prattling many bad words, entering dirt with a bad smell, which was intolerable, horrible, dark, like the hell and quickly sank in that.
vrm.5.27 "A woman with red clothes, who was black, with body smeared with dirt, tying Ravana by the throat, was pulling hiim in southern direction.
vrm.5.27 All Ravana s sons have been seen to be sprinkled with oil.
vrm.5.27 Ravana" by a Pig, Indrajit by a Porpoise, Kumbhakarna by a Camel set out in southern direction.
vrm.5.27 Lanka" protected by Ravana has been seen by me in the dream to be burnt by a quick Vanara who is a messenger of Rama.
vrm.5.27 I also see the destruction of Ravana also and victory of Rama coming near.
vrm.5.28 That Seetha, hearing those unpleasant words of Ravana, tormented by grief, was frightened like a tiny female Elephant overpowered by a lion in the middle of a forest.
vrm.5.28 That fearful Seetha, who was situated in the middle of female Rakshasas and also threatened by Ravana with his words galore, lamented as follows like a young virgin who was left lonely in the midst of a forest.
vrm.5.28 “If Rama the Ruler of the world does not come here, the evil Ravana, the king of Rakshasas will cut off my limbs with his sharpened weapons, even as a surgeon would cut the limbs of a lifeless feotus.
vrm.5.28 To me, none is there, who is a giver either of a poison or of a sharp weapon in the house of Ravana.
vrm.5.30 "The characteristics of Rakshasas, this town and the power of the king of Rakshasas, Ravana, have been perceived by me.
vrm.5.30 "If I use Sanskrit language like a brahmin, Seetha will get frightened, thinking me as Ravana.
vrm.5.30 "Thereafter, this large eyed Seetha who is full of mind, thinking me as Ravana who can assume any form at will, may shout loudly, engendered by fear.
vrm.5.30 "Then those female Rakshasas may call the other Rakshasas too retained by Ravana in his house.
vrm.5.31 “Thereafter, hearing about the killing of Rakshasas in Janasthana, a part of Dandaka forest, in addition to killing of Khara and Dushana the Rakshasas, the enraged Ravana took away, Seetha, by deceiving Rama in creating an illusive image of deer in the forest.
vrm.5.33 "If you are Seetha stolen per force by Ravana from Janasthana, tell it to me who is asking if you please!"
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 In as much as that Hanuma drew nearer to her, in the same way, that Seetha suspected him as Ravana.
vrm.5.34 He is indeed that Ravana, who obtained another guise.
vrm.5.34 Seetha, with her countenance resembling the moon, seeing Hanuma saluting her, had a deep sigh and spoke to Hanuma in a sweet sounding voice as follows "If you are Ravana, who made use of an illusive guise and yourself a conjurer, you are causing me a further agony.
vrm.5.34 You are indeed the same Ravana, who, abandoning your real form, appeared to me in the guise of a vagrant religious mendicant in Janasthana.
vrm.5.34 Thus deliberating upon the strengths and weaknesses in several ways, Seetha finally imagined him to be Ravana, as Rakshasas can change their forms at will.
vrm.5.34 "Showing an illusory antelope, Ravana detracted Rama and took you away from a deserted hermitage.
vrm.5.34 You will see later, the consequence Ravana will get for this act.
vrm.5.34 "Asserting my strength and putting down my feet on the head of the evil minded Ravana, I have come to see you.
vrm.5.34 "O Princess! I am not so, as you comprehend me as Ravana.
vrm.5.35 Thereafter, all those multitude of ornaments which adorned your body, which were being tried to be be snatched away by Ravana and which were dropped on to the earth, were brought by Vanara leaders joyfully and shown to Rama.
vrm.5.35 O Seetha the daughter of Janaka! That Rama the excellent of men will receive you, soon after, killing Ravana along with Ravana s friends and relatives.
vrm.5.35 O Seetha with an excellent waist! Hearing about the slaughter of Jatayu, that Sampati the son of Aruna was very much pained and said that you were staying in Ravana s house.
vrm.5.35 Entering even Lanka, filled with Rakshasas in the night, I saw Ravana and you too who were immersed in grief.
vrm.5.35 The highly valiant Rama, by killing Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas along with his friends and relatives, will obtain you soon.
vrm.5.36 O excellent of Vanaras! For you there is no fear nor even bewilderment from Ravana.
vrm.5.36 Within a short time, I hope see Ravana killed along with his companions in the battle field by terrific weapons burning brightly.
vrm.5.37 "When will Rama reach the end of this grief any more than a thoroughly fatigued man, having suffered a ship wreck is swimming in the middle of the sea?" "When will my husband see me, after annihilation of the Rakshasas, killing of Ravana and making the City of Lanka debacled?.
vrm.5.37 "O Hanuma! Out of the time limit given to me by the cruel Ravana for my survival, the tenth month is now running.
vrm.5.37 "Even when humbly entreated with continued exertion by Vibhishana his brother about my restoration to Rama, Ravana is not making up his mind to do so.
vrm.5.37 "My restoration is not agreeable to Ravana.
vrm.5.37 In the battle, death lies in wait for Ravana, who has become subject to the power of Time.
vrm.5.37 I have indeed capacity to carry even Lanka together with Ravana.
vrm.5.37 "To me, there is capability to carry this Lanka along with its hills, forest areas, market places, defensive walls and arches together with its Lord Ravana himself.
vrm.5.37 "Seeing me being taken away by you, the Rakshasas of terrific prowess, incited by the evil minded Ravana, will follow you.
vrm.5.37 "That I got, by force, the touch of Ravana s body, was because being helpless, having lost control of myself and without a protector, I could not do anything.
vrm.5.37 "If Rama kills Ravana here along with his relatives and departs taking me from here, it would be proper for him"
vrm.5.38 "O large eyed Seetha! Killing the cruel Ravana along with his relatives in battle, Rama will take you back to his own city.
vrm.5.38 "The valiant Lakshmana, on that day of occurrence, did not know that I was being taken away by Ravana.
vrm.5.38 "O valiant man! You are required to rescue me, detained as I am by Ravana the criminal and subjected to humiliation, as you earlier protected Kaushiki from Patala.
vrm.5.39 "If Rama defeats Ravana with his entire army in battle and as a champion takes me back to his own city, it will be quite worthy of him.
vrm.5.39 "O Seetha with a good waist! Rama, the delight of Raghu dynasty, killing Ravana together with his troops, will return to his town, duly taking you with him.
vrm.5.39 Within a short time, you will also see the end of Ravana, as destroyed by Rama.
vrm.5.40 "This Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, is terrible.
vrm.5.40 "O large eyed Seetha! Killing the cruel Ravana along with his relatives, Rama and Lakshmana will take you to their own city.
vrm.5.41 "How can my combat with the Rakshasas now will prove to be a happy one? And, how will my strength become fruitful? How indeed will that Ravana applaud me in battle?" "Then meeting Ravana with his troop of ministers, his army and his followers in battle as well as knowing his designs and strength, I will go back from here happily.
vrm.5.41 "This excellent grove of this cruel Ravana, with its various kinds of trees and creepers, which is pleasing to the eyes and the mind, is looking like Nandana, Indra s paradise.
vrm.5.41 While this grove gets demolished, Ravana will then be angry.
vrm.5.41 "Thereupon Ravana will order for an army consisting of Horses, great chariots and Elephants and armed with weapons like great tridents and spears made of iron.
vrm.5.41 "Attacking those Rakshasas of terrific prowess, I too with my unbearable prowess, will kill that army instigated by Ravana and return to the place of Sugreeva happily.
vrm.5.41 "That woody land of that pleasure garden which afforded shelter to the women folk of Ravana and which has clusters of Ashoka creepers became a jumble of creepers of sorrow for the distressed women by the violence of Hanuma.
vrm.5.41 Creating a great displeasure to the mind of that high souled Ravana, the Lord of the land of Lanka that Hanuma decided to fight alone against many mighty Rakshasas and stayed
vrm.5.42 Some others went to Ravana to inform about the matter.
vrm.5.42 After approaching Ravana, the female Rakshasas of ugly faces started to tell as follows of the monstrous and terrific Vanara.
vrm.5.42 "O chief of the Rakshasas troops! Who would dare to talk to that Seetha, who has been mentally accepted by you, except perhaps he who is ready to abandon his life?" Hearing the words of the female Rakshasas, Ravana the lord of Rakshasas flared up like a funeral fire, his eyes spinning with anger.
vrm.5.42 Tears dropped from Ravana s enraged eyes, like drops of oil dripping from resplendent lamps.
vrm.5.42 Ravana, with a great splendour, sent Rakshasas with a valiance equal to him, called Kinkaras, in order to catch hold of Hanuma.
vrm.5.42 Some Rakshasas, who somehow escaped from that terror, went to Ravana and informed him that all the Kinkaras have been killed.
vrm.5.42 Hearing of large army of Rakshasas having been killed, that Ravana with his eyes rolling rapidly with anger, ordered Jambumali, son of Prahasta, who was unequal in prowess and admirably unconquerable in battle.
vrm.5.43 Neither you, nor even Ravana will survive.
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 Hearing Jambumali having been killed, as also the mighty Kimkaras, Ravana was angry with his red enraged eyes.
vrm.5.44 Since the mighty son of Prahasta was killed, that Ravana rolling his red eyes with rage, immediately ordered the sons of ministers possessing high strength and prowess, to go to the battle.
vrm.5.45 Thereafter, those seven sons of his chief minister having a lustre similar to that of fire, surrounded by a great army, wielding their respective bows, possessing a great strength, well trained in archery and the best among knower of weapons, wishing a victory reciprocally, having an immense prowess each, and as directed by Ravana, started highly delighted from that palace, in great chariots yoked with Horses.
vrm.5.46 That Ravana ordered as follows five foremost leaders of the army viz.
vrm.5.47 Hearing and sustaining that the five army generals along with their followers and vehicles were disposed off by Hanuma, Ravana looked at Aksha, his son, violent in combat and who was inclined to fighting as well as sitting in front of him.
vrm.5.47 Goaded by the looks of Ravana, the energetic Aksha, wielding a golden dotted bow, quickly sprang up, like a fire switched up by the foremost of brahmins in a sacrificial fire, by offering oblations to it.
vrm.5.47 Hanuma, having crushed him on the ground, created a great fear to Ravana.
vrm.5.48 Filled with anger on his son Aksha having been killed by Hanuma, yet reconciling his mind, the high minded Ravana the king of Rakshasas for his part then instructed Indrajit his eldest son possessing the qualities of god as follows:
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 Indrajit, the illustrious son of Ravana, having eyes like lotus petals and endowed with extra ordinary energy, rushed forth like an ocean on full moon days.
vrm.5.48 Those two warriors, Hanuma and Indrajit, possessing great velocity and a great strength as also fearless in combat, confronted in the battle like Indra and Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas who tightened hostility with each other.
vrm.5.48 There will be a dialogue with Ravana.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma approved of being forcibly bound and reviled by the enemies, with an assured feeling that Ravana was curious as he was, to see him.
vrm.5.48 That Hanuma, then being beaten with sticks and fists by the cruel Rakshasas, was dragged to the vicinity of Ravana.
vrm.5.48 Then, recognizing that Hanuma, tied with barks of trees and ropes, but liberated by the missile, Indrajit slowed that mighty Hanuma the jewel among the Vanaras, to Ravana there sitting along with a body of his attendants.
vrm.5.48 The Rakshasas showed to Ravana, the king of Rakshasas that captured Hanuma, the jewel among the foremost of Vanaras who looked like an Elephant in rut.
vrm.5.48 After crossing over the path swiftly, the high souled Hanuma saw there the palace of Ravana, decorated with highly precious stones and his elderly attendants sitting at the feet of Ravana.
vrm.5.48 That Ravana, who was endowed with an extraordinary energy, saw Hanuma the foremost of Vanaras, being dragged hither and thither by Rakshasas of ugly countenance.
vrm.5.48 Hanuma the jewel among the Vanaras also saw Ravana the king of Rakshasas, charged with luster and strength and blazing like the sun.
vrm.5.48 That Ravana, rolling his red hot eyes with rage by seeing that Hanuma and thereafter seeing his important ministers who were elder to his by clan and character sitting there, ordered them to interrogate Hanuma.
vrm.5.49 Then, Hanuma with a terrific prowess, was enraged at his capture and his being dragged and saw Ravana with his red hot eyes.
vrm.5.49 Ravana was endowed with a great splendor and shone with a glittering and precious diadem of gold as also encircled with strings of pearls.
vrm.5.49 That Ravana was adorned with bright coloured gold ornaments, inlaid with diamonds and decorated with worthy gems, which appeared as though they were prepared with the mind.
vrm.5.49 Ravana was attired in very costly silk and his body was smeared with red sandal paste and well painted with various brightly coloured designs.
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 Ravana was having a pearl necklace casting its splendor on his bosom.
vrm.5.49 Ravana was distinguished by arms, adorned with bracelets, smeared with excellent sandal paste and decked with shining Angadas another variety of bracelets and looking like large five hooded serpents.
vrm.5.49 Hanuma saw Ravana with a great splendor, sitting on the throne, looking like a rainy cloud on the peak of Mount Meru.
vrm.5.49 Though tortured by the Rakshasas that Hanuma, of terrific prowess, experiencing a great surprise, looked attentively at Ravana.
vrm.5.49 Seeing the glittering Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, Hanuma was bewildered by his splendor and thought in his mind as follows: “What figure, what courage, what strength, what splendor and what amalgam of auspicious marks, alas, this king of Rakshasas has!” “Had this lord of Rakshasas perhaps not strong in unrighteousness, he would have been a protector of even the world of Devas together with Indra.
vrm.5.49 Seeing the power of Ravana the king of Rakshasas, who possessed an unlimited vigour, the intelligent Hanuma formulated many kinds of thoughts in this way.
vrm.5.50 That Ravana, the long armed, who caused people to cry, looking up at that Vanara standing in front of him, was affected with violent anger, having his mind seized with suspicion, speculated as follows about Hanuma, the jewel among the Vanaras, who was invested with splendour.
vrm.5.50 That king Ravana, becoming enraged with red hot eyes, spoke the following concise and meaningful words relevant to that occasion, to Prahasta, his chief of ministers.
vrm.5.50 Hearing the words of Ravana, Prahasta spoke the following words to Hanuma, “Take courage! Happiness to you! You need not get frightened, O Vanara!” “O Vanara! If Indra has sent you to the abode of Ravana, tell me the truth.
vrm.5.50 Or else, tell me the purpose of your entry into Ravana s abode.
vrm.5.50 Hearing the words of Prahasta, Hanuma spoke to Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas as follows, "I am not a messenger of Indra or Yama or Varuna.
vrm.5.50 "The sight of Ravana the King of Rakshasas is difficult to be obtained.
vrm.5.50 Intent on that object of sight of Ravana, the garden was destroyed by me.
vrm.5.51 Seeing that highly energetic Ravana, the courageous Hanuma coolly spoke to him the following meaningful words:
vrm.5.51 Hearing those unpleasant words endowed with extreme skillfulness and which were spoken without fear from Hanuma, that unequalled Ravana ordered for the killing of that Hanuma.
vrm.5.52 Hearing those words of the high=souled Hanuma, Ravana duly excited with anger, ordered for the killing of Hanuma.
vrm.5.52 While it was ordered by the evil natured Ravana for the killing of Hanuma, Vibhishana did not agree to the killing of Hanuma, who was entrusted with the functions of a messenger.
vrm.5.52 Seeing Ravana getting enraged and looking to that affair of killing of an envoy that has arisen, Vibhishana who was firm in accompanying any object, reflected upon an appropriate action to be done.
vrm.5.52 Then, deciding about a right action, Vibhishana, who was silled in communication and a conqueror of enemies, spoke softly the following very meaningful and useful words to Ravana, his venerable borther.
vrm.5.52 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Ravana the lord of Rakshasas was greatly enraged and replied in the following words: "O Vibhishana, the annihilator of enemies! There is no sin, even if the sinners are killed.
vrm.5.52 "O Ravana, who is fond of war! If he is dead, I do not find any other hero, who can incite those two arrogant princes, who are hindered by a long distance, for war.
vrm.5.52 "O Ravana who can gladden the hearts of Rakshasas! It is not proper for you, who are difficult to be conquered by even Suras and Asuras having sufficient prowess energy and courage, to crush the arrival of a war.
vrm.5.52 Ravana, the mighty and the eminent among the kings of Rakshasas as also the lord of Nisacharas and the adversary of the world of Suras, understood the cherished and excellent message of Vibhishana his brother with his due presence of mind.
vrm.5.53 Hearing those words, which were aprropriate for that place and time, spoken by that hih souled Vibhishana, his brother, Ravana spoke the following words in reply:
vrm.5.53 Ravana ordered that let the Vanara be carried around with his burning tail by the Rakshasas in the entire city around its cross roads.
vrm.5.53 Hearing those words of Ravana, the Rakshasas, hard tempered with their wrath, wrapped, up old ragged clothes around Hanuma s tail.
vrm.5.53 Hearing that cruel news, which created as much sorrow as when she was carried away by Ravana, Seetha was tormented with grief and started to pay homage to the Agni.
vrm.5.54 Having passed over all the houses, the mighty and glorious Hanuma thereafter approached the house of Ravana the king of Rakshasas.
vrm.5.55 "Alas! Hanuma, who hurled a very terrific fire into Ravana s house, has indeed done a difficult act.
vrm.5.57 Killing the foremost of Rakshasas, becoming famous by is name, making Lanka perplexed, causing anguish to Ravana by tormenting his terrible army, and bidding his adieu to Seetha, Hanuma returned by flying over the middle of the sea.
vrm.5.57 Longing to hear about crossing of ocean and the seeing of Lanka, Seetha and Ravana, all those excellent Vanaras waited with their joined palms, in anctipation of Hanuma s words.
vrm.5.58 Then, Jambavan, thrilling with rapture, asked the delighted Hanuma, the great Vanara about the particulars of that actual occurrence of seeing Seetha as follows “How did you see Seetha? How was she there? How was that Ravana of terrible deeds behaving towards her?” “O Hanuma! Tell us entirely, in truth whatever has occurred.
vrm.5.58 The evil minded Ravana took away Seetha, Rama s wife.
vrm.5.58 "Searching there for Seetha that whole night in Ravana s gynaecium, I could not find that Seetha, the slender waisted lady.
vrm.5.58 "Unable to find Seetha in Ravana s dwelling and facing a sea of sorrow, I could not then perceive its other shore.
vrm.5.58 Seetha", who had eyes like those of a deer, was somehow quickly found by me looking depressed in the amidst of female Rakshasas, frightened as she was by them again and again, putting on a single braid of hair as a mark of desolation, wholly devoted to the thought of her lord, having floor as her bedstead, pale limbed like a lotus stalk in a cool season, turning away the request of Ravana, and determined to die.
vrm.5.58 "Meanwhile, I heard an exceedingly roaring and hallooing sound, mixed with sounds of girdles and anklets in the abode of Ravana.
vrm.5.58 "Then, the mighty Ravana and his wives reached that place where Seetha was staying.
vrm.5.58 "Thereupon, seeing that Ravana the chief of a troop of Rakshasas, Seetha with her lovely waist, sat compressing her thighs enclosing her swollen breasts with her arms.
vrm.5.58 Ravana", bowing his head and coming down, spoke as follows to that Seetha who was frightened, very much grieving for her lord, glancing hither and thither, not finding any protection for her, trembling, distressed and extremely sorrowful saying, Treat me with respect.
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 "Hearing these harsh words from Seetha, Ravana was at once ablaze with anger, as a fire blazes in a pile of wood.
vrm.5.58 Rolling his cruel eyes and lifting his right fist, Ravana was about to kill Seetha.
vrm.5.58 "Springing up from the midst of those women, a royal woman named Mandodari, the wife of that evil minded Ravana, ran to him.
vrm.5.58 "She spoke to Ravana, smitten with love, the following sweet words: O Ravana having a prowess similar to that of Indra! Of what need is with Seetha to you?"
vrm.5.58 What will you do with Seetha? "Thereupon, those women together propitiated that mighty Ravana and quickly took him to his palace.
vrm.5.58 "When that Ravana left, the ugly faced female Rakshasas frightened.
vrm.5.58 "As their roaring frittered away, those flesh eating female Rakshasas became helpless and reported that great resolve of Seetha to Ravana.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing my words and understanding them, Seetha the daughter of Janaka said as follows: Let Rama take me back, after killing Ravana
vrm.5.58 "Coming from their respective places and seeing me in that garden, those female Rakshasas quickly went and reported the matter to Ravana as follows:" "O mighty king! Indeed not knowing your prowess, an evil minded Vanara ahs demolished your inaccessible garden.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing those words, Ravana sent invincible Rakshasas called Kinkaras, who were adapted to the mind of Ravana.
vrm.5.58 "Taking quick steps, those few who have survived, went and reported the news to Ravana, of their large army having been killed by me.
vrm.5.58 "Then, Ravana dispatched Jambumali, the son of Prahasta together with numerous dreadful Rakshasas having terrific forms.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing of it, Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, dispatched the son of his minister, endowed with great strength and strengthened with a regiment of infantry.
vrm.5.58 Hearing of the minster s sons, who were quick in exhibiting their valour in battle, having been killed, Ravana dispatched five valiant generals.
vrm.5.58 Then, Ravana, the ten headed monster, sent his mighty son, Aksha together with a multitude of army for the combat.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing of the death of Aksha in combat, that ten headed Ravana was very much enraged and thereupon dispatched his second son, by name Indrajit, who was strong but foolishly arrogant in battle.
vrm.5.58 Ravana" himself dispatched, with a great confidence, that long armed and mighty Indrajit along with valiant Rakshasas excited with their arrogance.
