vrm.2.1 Bharata, while going to his maternal uncle s house, has taken his brother Satrughna he who has no sins and who annihilates his enemies along with him with love.
vrm.2.1 Those heroes of valour Bharata and Satrughna, though staying there enjoying all the comforts, were remembering their age old father.
vrm.2.1 The mighty Dasaratha was also often remembering his sons Bharata and Satrughna who were out of his state and who were equivalent to Indra and Varuna.
vrm.2.8 "Oh Kaikeyi! In line with even the proximity of birth the claim to the throne of Bharata alone can be pressed, that of Lakshmana and Satrughna who are younger is out of question.
vrm.2.26 You, in particular, should regard Bharata and Satrughna, as your brothers or sons.
vrm.2.46 Oh, tiger among men! The citizens of Ayodhya are indeed having affection to the king no less than to you and myself, as also to Bharata and Satrughna, for many of our virtues.
vrm.2.51 By looking forward to meet Satrughna, my mother might even stay alive.
vrm.2.53 Oh, Rama causing pain to the foes! Without you, I do not wish to see either our father or Satrughna or Sumitra or even the heaven.
vrm.2.67 Both Bharata and Satrughna, the annihilator of enemies, are encamped in the beautiful house of their maternal uncle in the city of Rajagriha in the kingdom of Kekaya.
vrm.2.68 Hearing their words, Vasistha replied thus to that group of friends as well as ministers and to all the Brahmans assembled there: Bharata, who was given kingdom by Dasaratha is staying very happily in his maternal uncles home, along with Satrughna.
vrm.2.70 Is Kausalya, the venerable lady, who is intent on virtue, who knows righteousness, who visualizes goodness and who is the mother of the wise Rama, also well? I hope that Sumitra, who knows righteousness, who is the mother of Lakshmana as well as the heroic Satrughna and our middle mother, is well.
vrm.2.70 Bharata took leave of his maternal grandfather and also Yudhajit, his maternal uncle and set out on a chariot for Ayodhya along with Satrughna.
vrm.2.75 I was not aware of the proposed coronation, which has of the been contemplated by king Dasaratha since I was staying indeed in a distant land, along with Satrughna.
vrm.2.77 The two illustrious Tigers among men Bharata and Satrughna who had got up, appeared like two banners severally raised in honor of Indra soiled through rain and the sun.
vrm.7.49 And taking all those jewels, the highly power ful Bharata, Lakshmana and Satrughna returned to their own city.
vrm.7.53 Thereupon Rama incidentally addressed them saying O Vadra, how do the inhabitants of the city and provinces talk about Sita, Bharata, Lakshmana, Satrughna and the mother Kaikeyi ?The kings, when they deviate from the paths of justice, become objects of censure in the houses of men and even in the forests as well.
vrm.7.54 Having sent away his friends and determined what to do, Rama, the delight of the Raghus, commanded the warder, who was seated hard by, saying: Do thou speedily bring here, Lakshmana the son of Sumitra and gifted with auspicious marks, the great Bharata and the irrepressible Satrughna.
vrm.7.54 Seeing Bharata s departure the warder speedily went to Satrughna and with folded hands said: Do thou come, O foremost Raghus, the King wisheth to behold thee.
vrm.7.54 Hearing the words of the warder Satrughna lowered his head and rising up speedily proceeded to Rama.
vrm.7.60 Rama shall be deprived of all happiness and be separated from his dear wife; what more, the virtuous souled Rama, having long arms, shall, under the influence of time, renounce thee, Sita, Satrughna and Bharata.
vrm.7.60 Do thou not communicate this unto Satrughna, Bharata or any body.
vrm.7.60 However, do thou not reveal this secret unto Satrughna and Bharata.
vrm.7.75 On whom shall devolve this duty ?Whether the mighty armed Bharata or the intelligent Satrughna shall do this work ?"Thus addressed by Raghava Bharata remarked: "I will slay this.
vrm.7.75 And Satrughna, saluting the king represented:"The mighty armed second son of Raghu hath already achieved a grand work: he formerly governed Ayodhya empty of the noble one, bearing in his heart the grief connected with his return.
vrm.7.75 On Satrughna saying this, Raghava again said :"Let this be so.
vrm.7.76 Thus accosted by Rama, the exceedingly energetic Satrughna was powerfully wrought up with bashfulness, and replied slowly :"O lord of men, this doth not appear to be in consonance with morality.
vrm.7.76 Thus addressed by the heroic and high souled Satrughna, Rama, delighted, spoke unto Bharata nad Lakshmana, "Do you carefully provide the things ecessary for the coronation :this very day shall I install that foremost of men, the descendant of Raghu.
vrm.7.76 And then commenced the auspicious sprinkling of the high souled Satrughna, gladdening the hearts of all in the palace of Raghava.
vrm.7.76 And when Satrughna had been installed by Rama of untiring deeds, the citizens as well as the Brahmanas of vast Vedic attainments experienced excess of joy.
vrm.7.76 And on Satrughna having been installed the high souled sages dwelling on the banks of the Yamuna, thought that Lavana had been slain.
vrm.7.76 Then placing the installed Satrughna on his lap, Raghava, extolling his prowess, addressed him sweet words: "O captor of hostile capitals, this divine arrow never missing is thine.
vrm.7.76 When, O Satrughna, formerly I sought to slay Ravana, I did not discharge this arrow, thinking that if discharged, it would inflict great havoc on creatures.
vrm.7.77 Having thus addressed Satrughna, Rama again and then praised him and said "O foremost of men, let four thusand horses, two thousand chariots, one hundred excellent phants, shops with various articles and songsters follow thee.
vrm.7.77 O foremost of men, O Satrughna, do thou proceed with the Nijuta gold and silver coins and necessary riches and conveyances.
vrm.7.77 O Satrughna, having sent therefore a huge and well contented army do thou proceed torwards to Madhuvana.
vrm.7.77 Hearing those words of Rama and summoning all his highly powerful and leading warriors Satrughna said "Do ye all proceed and halt at those places which are well known to you.
vrm.7.77 Having thus ordered the powerful warriors the highly powerful Satrughna bowed unto Kausalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi.
vrm.7.77 And then with Rama s permission and having gone round him the highly powerful Satrughna issued out.
vrm.7.77 Having thus depatched before a huge army consisting of selected elephants and horses, Satrughna, the enhancer of the glory of Raghu s race, took farewell from Rama.
vrm.7.78 Having thus despatched his army and waited at Ayodhya for a month Satrughna, the slayer of enemies, proceeded alone.
vrm.7.78 Heaing the words of the high souled Satrughna, Valmiki, the foremost of ascetics, replied saying "O thou of great renown, do thou wait here without any hesitation.
vrm.7.78 Thereupon taking water to wash his feet and feeding upon fruits and roots Satrughna attained to great delight.
vrm.7.78 And afterwards he asked the great ascetic Valmiki saying "O great ascetic, to whom belong the articles of sacrifice in the east near this hermitage?" Whereto Valmiki replied Satrughna", hear I shall tell thee, whose sacrificial ground was this in the days of yore.
vrm.7.78 Having thus heard the wonderful story of the king Saudasa and saluted the ascetic Valmiki, Satrughna entered a thatched cottage.
vrm.7.79 On the same night Satrughna housed himself in a thatched cottage Sita gave birth to twin sons.
vrm.7.79 Hearing that Sita without any trouble had given bith to two sons and elderly female ascetics had been engaged is protecting them and heaing the chanting of Rama s glories in the midnight, Satrughna thought within himself.
vrm.7.79 Having performed the morning rites after the expiration of the night and taken farewell from the ascetic Valmiki, Satrughna proceeded towards the west.
vrm.7.79 Having remained there for the night and talked with those ascetics the high souled, heroic Raghu prince Satrughna was greatly delighted.
vrm.7.80 Thereupon when the night set in Satrughna accosted Bhrigu s son Chavanya saying, "O Brahman, how powerful is Lavana ?And what is the strength of his dart ?What persons before had been destroyed by this dart in conflict ?"Hearing the words of the high souled descendant of Raghu, Satrughna, the highly effulgent Chavanya replied saying
vrm.7.81 They being thus engaged in conversation regarding his having victory without any danger Satrughna in no time ended the night.
vrm.7.81 In the meantime having crossed the river Yamuna, the heroic Satrughna, with bow in his hands, stood at the gate of Madhu s city.
vrm.7.81 Thereupon returning in the noon with many sand animals, the night ranger Lavana, of dreadful visions, espied Satrughna standing at the gate with a weapon is hand.
vrm.7.81 How shalt thou, of thy own accord, enter into my mouth Lavana?" having said this again and again laughing great hero Satrughna shed tears in anger.
vrm.7.81 The high souled Satrughna being beside himself with rage, from all person issued burning lustre.
vrm.7.81 I am the son of the great king Dasaratha, brother of the intelligent Rama and my name is Satrughna.
vrm.7.81 "Whereto Satrughna immediatelyreplied "Where shalt thou go while I am alive ?The practical men should never let off the enemies who come out of their own accord.
vrm.7.82 Hearing the words of the high souled Satrughna, Lavana was greatly enraged and again and again asked him to wait.
vrm.7.82 And clashing his hands and ginding his teeth he invited that foremost of Raghus, Satrughna, to fight.
vrm.7.82 And Satrughna, the slayer of celestial s enemies, said to the dreadful Lavana, giving vent to those words Satrughna" was not born when thou didst defeat other kings ;do thou therefore proceed to Death s abode being assailed by shafts.
vrm.7.82 Being beside himself with fire on hearing those words of Satrughna, Lavana threw a huge tree against his breast.
vrm.7.82 And Satrughna too sundered it into a hundred pieces.
vrm.7.82 Beholding his own action bafled the Rakshasa again took up many trees and hurled them at Satrughna, who, with three or four hundred bent arrows, cut them all, one by one, into pieces.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon when the powerful Satrughna assailed him with arrows the Rakshasa was not the least pained.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon considering Satrughna slain the night ranger did not enter his house albeit he got the opportunity; and moreover beholding him fallen and destroyed he did not take up his dart.
vrm.7.82 Regaining his sense within a moment, Satrughna, with a weapon in his hand, stood at the city gate and the Rishis began to praise him.
vrm.7.82 he said "Hear, O ye Devas, Satrughna hath taken up this arrow for the destruction of Lavana.
vrm.7.82 This Satrughna is the first portion of Vishnu s person ;do ye all go hence and behold the destruction of the foremost Rakshasa, Lavana, by the high souled, heroic Satrughna, the younger brother of Rama.
vrm.7.82 Hearing the words of the Patriarch Brahma, the Devas arrived at the battle field of Satrughna and Lavana and saw that the arrow, held by Satrughna s hands, was burning like the fire of dissolution.
vrm.7.82 Beholding the welkin covered by the celestials, Satrughna, the descendant of Raghu, emitting leonine roars, again and again looked towards Lavana.
vrm.7.82 And being again excited by the high souled Satrughna and enraged Lavana arrived for encounter.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon expandiag his bow up to ears, Satrughna, the most accomplished archer, discharged his arrow against the spacious breast of Lavana.
vrm.7.82 Having removed the fear of the three worlds with one shaft, that heroic Raghu, Satrughna younger brother of Lakshmana, holding excellent bow and arrow, appeared like the Sun of thousand rays removing darkness.
vrm.7.82 Thereupon chanting the glories of Satrughna, the Devas, Rishis, Pannagas, Apsaras, said "O son of Dasaratha, it is really fortunate, that thou, renouncing fear, hast acquired victory and that the Rakshasa Lavana hath been vanquished like a serpent.
vrm.7.83 Lavana being slain the Devas headed by Agni and Indra said in sweet accents to Satrughna the represser of enemies "O child, fortunate it is that thou hast been crowned with success after slaying the Rakshasa Lavana.
vrm.7.83 Hearing the words of the Devas the large armed and self controlled Satrughna placed his hands on his head and said
vrm.7.83 The high souled Devas having ascended the welkin saying this, the highly effulgent Satrughna brought the soldiers there, that were encamped on the banks of the Ganges.
vrm.7.83 When the soldiers arrived there on hearing the commands of Satrughna he engaged in making encampments in the month of Sravana.
vrm.7.83 And being protected by the strength of Satrughna s arms all men there became valiant and were freed from deseases.
vrm.7.83 Satrughna now engaged in beautifying the spacious, white houses that were made by Lavana before, with vaious ornamental works.
vrm.7.83 Beholding the city interspersed with vaious excellent gardens, pleasure grounds and prosperously filled with Devas and men and diverse articles of trade and merchants hailing from various countries, Satrughna, the younger brother of Bharata, attained to the satisfaction of desire and excess of delight.
vrm.7.83 Thereupon having set up the city resembling the region of the Devas and filled with various men, the king Satrughna, the enhancer of Raghu s race, determined on beholding Rama s feet.
vrm.7.84 Therupon on the completion of the twelfth year, Satrughna, with few servants, soldiers and followers, desired to proceed to Ayodhya protected by Rama.
vrm.7.84 And having counted seven halting stations on his way, the highly illustrious descendant of Raghu Satrughna, arrived at the hermitage of Valmiki.
vrm.7.84 The great ascetic Valmiki addressed to the high souled Satrughna many sweet words.
vrm.7.84 O Satrughna, too have been greatly delighted I therefore smell thy crown for this is the best expression of love.
vrm.7.84 After meals, Satrughna, the foremost of men, listened to themes relating to Rama and set in musical notes.
vrm.7.84 Satrughna, the foremost of men, heard them from the beginning to the end, pregnant with truth and composed of those words.
vrm.7.84 Being in this wise greatly surprised they said to Satrughna: O foremost of men, do thou ask particularly, about this, Valmiki, the foremost of ascetics.
vrm.7.84 They being all thus struck with curiosity, Satrughna said "It is not poper for us, O Ye soldiers, to question him in this way.
vrm.7.84 Having thus addressed the soldiers and bowed onto the ascetic, Satrughna, the desendant of Raghu, entered his own quarter.
vrm.7.85 Therupon going to bed, Satrughna began to meditate upon that excellent theme relating to Rama and treating of diverse subjects and did not enter into sleep.
vrm.7.85 In sooth the high minded Satrughna spent the night in no time listening to that charming song set in musical notes.
vrm.7.85 Satrughna, the slayer of enemies, having said this, the great ascetic Valmiki embraced and bade him farewell.
vrm.7.85 Thereupon having entered the highly picturesque city Ayodhya, the graceful descendant of Ikshwakus, Satrughna, reached where the long armed and the highly effulgent Rama was waiting.
vrm.7.85 And having bowed with folded hands unto Rama, having truth for his prowess, Satrughna said "O great king, I have carried out all thine behests ;I have slain the vicious Lavana and filled his city with subjects.
vrm.7.85 Hearing those moral and charming words of Rama, Satrughna poorly replied, saying "Thy command shall be carried out.
vrm.7.85 Thereupon Satrughna, well skilled in the use of bows, remained with Rama for seven nights and then addressed himself for depature.
vrm.7.86 Having bade adieu unto Satrughna, Rama, the descendant of Raghu, was greatly delighted by governing his subjects piously in the company of Bharata and Lakshmana.
vrm.7.104 According to the command of Rama, Bharata, with Satrughna, made arrangements for highly valuable quarters, food, drink and clothes.
vrm.7.105 Bharata, with Satrughna, engaged in attending upon the kings.
vrm.7.118 Hearing those words that foremost of Rishis, Durvasa, impatient with rage, said with blood red eyes: O Saumitri, if dost thou not go even this very moment and communicate unto Rama my arrival, I shall impricate thee, Rama, Bharata, Satrughna, your sons and grand sons.
vrm.7.120 Heaing Rama s words Bharata was also stupified and speaking ill of the kingdom, said "O King, I swear by truth, that far from kingdom I do not wish to live in heaven even without thee: O King, of these two princes, Kusi and Lava, do thou place Kusi in Kosala and Lava in North Kosala: And let quick moving emissaries go to Satrughna and communicate unto him the intelligence of our going there.
vrm.7.120 Having thus settled the princes he despatched an emissary to Satrughna.
vrm.7.121 Continually travelling for three nights and days, they arived there and communicated unto Satrughna the intelligence.
vrm.7.121 Thereupon they asked Satrughna to proceed soon.
vrm.7.121 Observing the dreadful destruction of his race, Satrughna sent for his subjects and priests and informed them of everything.
vrm.7.121 Thereupon the king Satrughna determined upon installing his two sons in the kingdom.
vrm.7.121 Having thus established Suvahu in Mathura, and Satrughati in Vidisha, the great hero Satrughna ascended his car and went to Ayodhya.
vrm.7.121 Thereupon understanding the firm resolution of Satrughna, the descendant of Raghu agreed.
