Continued from Part 1

vrm.5.3 There may be access to this land to the son of Sun God Sugreeva, to the Vanara Kusaparvana, to the chief among Vanaras Riksha and to me.
vrm.5.4 Desiring the benefit of the king of Vanaras Sugreeva, that Hanuma entered the city of Lanka and thus actually placed His left foot on the enemies heads.
vrm.5.4 That glorious Hanuma, performer of beneficial deeds for Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, moved around the city of Lanka which had wonderful garlands and jewellery, for the sake of Sri Rama.
vrm.5.12 “Without seeing Seetha, not obtaining destiny and wandering for a long time together with Vanaras, to me there is not a path to go near Sugreeva.
vrm.5.12 Sugreeva has a sharp punishment and also is strong.
vrm.5.13 “To me reaching Kishkindha what would Sugreeva say or Vanaras there or those sons of Dasharatha what would they say?” “Going there by me for Rama, Seetha‘ has not been seen’ thus if I say a very unpleasant word thereafter Rama will give up life.
vrm.5.13 “Grateful, true to pledge Sugreeva, the leader of Vanaras, seeing Rama the leader of Vanaras seeing Rama die in that way will give up life thereafter.
vrm.5.13 “Being distressed from the sorrow of Vali, being emaciated from grief, Tara also will not exist while the king Sugreeva is obtaining death.
vrm.5.13 “The young Angada also from the death of mother and father, from the grief of Sugreeva why will he retain life?” Vanaras“ being rejected by the sorrow due to their lord will strike their heads with palms and fists.
vrm.5.13 Vanaras“ loved by the famous king Sugreeva through good words, through small gifts, through respect will give up lives.
vrm.5.13 I am not capable to see Sugreeva without Seetha.
vrm.5.13 That Hanuma saluting to all those and also to Sugreeva, observing all directions went towards Ashoka garden.
vrm.5.16 “For Her sake Sugreeva obtained wealth of vanaras ruled by Vali difficult to be obtained and worshiped by the world.
vrm.5.30 "Even if I instigate my master Sugreeva to do his best in the cause of Rama, his arrival here with an army will be futile.
vrm.5.30 Consequently this work of Rama and Sugreeva will be ruined.
vrm.5.31 “Searching for Seetha the irreproachable lady, that Rama met a Vanara called Sugreeva as his friend in the forest.
vrm.5.31 “Thereafter, Rama the conqueror of enemy’s cities and very strong man, killed Vali and gave away that kingdom of Vanaras to Sugreeva.
vrm.5.31 “As commanded and sent by Sugreeva, thousands of Vanaras capable of assuming form at their will, are searching for that lady Seetha in all quarters of the earth.
vrm.5.31 Looking at sides, up and down, that Seetha saw that Hanuman, the son of Marut, having an unimaginable intelligence, the minister of Sugreeva and looking like the sun behind an eastern mountain.
vrm.5.34 "O princess! That Vanara called Sugreeva, a companion of Rama and the king of the excellent Vanaras, asked about your welfare.
vrm.5.34 Rama", together with Sugreeva and Lakshmana, is always recollecting you.
vrm.5.34 O Seetha! Eventhough coming into the control female Rakshasas, you are somehow surviving by your good luck!" "Within a few days, you will see Rama, the mighty Lakshmana and the highly splendorous Sugreeva, in the presence of crores of Vanaras.
vrm.5.34 "I am a Vanara, the minister of Sugreeva, called Hanuma.
vrm.5.35 Those two brothers Rama and Lakshmana, wandering only in search of you all over the earth, saw Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras, sitting on the top of Rishyamuka mountain, filled with several trees, having been dethroned by his elder brother, oppressed with fear, but who was pleasant to the sight.
vrm.5.35 We for one are serving that Sugreeva, the Lord of Vanaras,
vrm.5.35 bows in hand, that Sugreeva the best of Vanaras was deluded with fear and jumped over to the hill top of that mountain.
vrm.5.35 Thereafter, stationed on that hill top, that Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras, very soon sent me only, to approach those two brothers.
vrm.5.35 On that command of Sugreeva, I reached saluting those two brothers, Rama and Lakshmana the excellent and capable men, endowed with good
vrm.5.35 Those two brothers, Rama and Lakshmana, the excellent among men, were fully endowed with kindness, after knowing the exact position about Sugreeva.
vrm.5.35 Then, I made Rama and Lakshmana to ascend on my back and took them to Sugreeva s place.
vrm.5.35 I informed the high souled Sugreeva about the true position
vrm.5.35 After a mutual conversation between those two brothers and Sugreeva, a great friendship developed among them.
vrm.5.35 Thus endowed with friendship, Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras and Rama the best of men, by talking together of their earlier occurrences, developed mutual confidence.
vrm.5.35 through the extremely effulgent Vali the brother of Sugreeva, consoled Sugreeva who was earlier expelled from the kingdom by Vali, for the sake of Ruma a woman.
vrm.5.35 Then, Lakshmana informed Sugreeva the king of Vanaras about the sadness of Rama, who is unwearied in action, born out of your disappearance.
vrm.5.35 Hearing the words of Lakshmana, Sugreeva then became highly dim witted, as the sun becomes dim when overpowered by an eclipse.
vrm.5.35 He later gave them to Sugreeva.
vrm.5.35 That day when Rama and Sugreeva were together, both of them made an agreement that Rama would annihilate Vali and Sugreeva would arrange for a search of you.
vrm.5.35 After killing Vali in combat by means of his strength, Rama made Sugreeva the king for the entire multitude of Rikshas and Vanaras.
vrm.5.35 O princess! A friendship was held well in such a manner between Rama and Sugreeva.
vrm.5.35 Having got his own kingdom, Sugreeva summoned for mighty as well as capable Vanaras and sent them to ten different directions in search of you.
vrm.5.35 As commanded by Sugreeva of a great splendour and the king of Vanaras, those Vanaras resembling Himalayan mountains, started out on all directions of the earth.
vrm.5.35 Then, we along with other Vanaras too who are eager to fulfill the command of Sugreeva, are wandering the entire earth in search of you.
vrm.5.35 We were determined to forsake our lives because of despair in our non fulfillment of work, in our overstepping of time limit given by Sugreeva and in fear of the King Sugreeva.
vrm.5.35 For us who lost all our hopes on our lives and willing to give up our lives as per the command of Sugreeva, as though for the sake of our
vrm.5.35 I am Sugreeva s minister.
vrm.5.35 valiant Rama, your husband, came here alone on the command of Sugreeva.
vrm.5.36 The glorious Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras will indeed come for my sake along with his valiant Vanaras, who have their tusks and nails as their weapons.
vrm.5.37 "O Hanuma the long armed! The survival of the high souled Rama, his brothers, of yourself and of your royal family of Sugreeva is dependent on me.
vrm.5.38 "Tell me what to be expressed to Rama or to the mighty Lakshmana or to the splendourous Sugreeva or even to the other Vanaras assembled there.
vrm.5.39 You also ask, according to our usage, about the welfare of Sugreeva together with his ministers and of all the Vanaras who are elder.
vrm.5.39 Hearing those words, which were meaningful humble and attended with reason, Hanuma gave his final reply as follows "O Seetha the princess! Sugreeva, the Lord of the troops of Vanaras and Rikshas and the premost among the Vanaras, who is endowed with strength, is firmly determined in your cause.
vrm.5.39 "O Seetha! That Sugreeva, endowed with thousands and crores of Vanaras, will come soon to destroy the Rakshasas.
vrm.5.39 "So many Vanaras, endowed with prowess, perseverance, great strength and who can rush to any place as they wish are intensely committed to Sugreeva s command.
vrm.5.39 No one in the vicinity of Sugreeva is inferior to me.
vrm.5.40 "O Hanuma! Enquire about the welfare of Rama and Lakshmana, the brothers looking like Lions, of Sugreeva together with his ministers and of all other.
vrm.5.41 If I go to the abode of Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras, having ascertained the truth as to who will predominate in an encounter between the adversary and ourselves here itself, then will the command of my master have been carried out by me.
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.5.42 Hanuma also then cried aloud with a clamorous voice as follows: "Long live the mighty Rama and the powerful Lakshmana! Long live the King Sugreeva, protected by Rama!"
vrm.5.43 "Long live Rama, skilled in archery and the powerful Lakshmana! Long lie the King Sugreeva, protected by Rama! I am Hanuma, the destroyer of the army of adversaries and the son of Vayu.
vrm.5.43 Seeing the edifice burning, that Hanuma killing those hundred Rakshasas, like Indra killing Rakshasas with his thunderbolt and gloriously staying in the sky, spoke the following words: Thousands" of Vanaras like me, possessing gigantic bodies of strength, were sent on the orders of Sugreeva.
vrm.5.43 "Surrounded by hundreds, myriads, lakhs and crores of such Vanaras having their teeth and nails as their weapons, Sugreeva, who is capable of destroying you all, will come.
vrm.5.46 "Earlier, I saw the Vanaras of a great prowess like Vali and Sugreeva, the mighty Jambavan, Nila the Chief of army and so on like Dvivida.
vrm.5.47 Seeing in the battle that Aksha the prince, with his marvellous weapons and picturesque bow, that Hanuma the excellent one among Sugreeva s counsellors, was rejoiced and with an inclination to fight, grew in size.
vrm.5.47 Then, the great chariot of Aksha, thus struck by the palm and subdued by Hanuma the counsellor of Sugreeva, had its interior broken, its carriage pole loosened and its Horses dead and fallen from the sky to the ground.
vrm.5.48 Questioned, as per order, by those ministers as to the purpose of his operation and the motive of his act, that Hanuma at the outset informed, “I came from Sugreeva as an envoy.
vrm.5.51 "O king of Rakshasas! By the command of Sugreeva, I came here to your abode.
vrm.5.51 Sugreeva, the Lord of Vanaras, your brother, asked me to enquire about your welfare.
vrm.5.51 "Hear the righteous and meaningful words, as a following advice, of the high souled Sugreeva, your brother, conducive to good in the world as well as in the other world.
vrm.5.51 "That prince, Rama together with his brother, searching that lady, reached Mount Rishyamuka and happened to meet Sugreeva.
vrm.5.51 "While Sugreeva promised Rama to get Seetha searched, Rama too promised to get the kingdom of Vanaras to Sugreeva.
vrm.5.51 "Thereafter, killing Vali in a combat, Rama installed Sugreeva on the throne as the lord of that troop of Vanaras and Rikshas.
vrm.5.51 Sugreeva", the lord of Vanaras, true to his promise, was intent on searching for Seetha and sent his Vanaras to all directions.
vrm.5.51 "This Sugreeva is indeed neither a Deva, nor Asura, nor human, nor Danava, nor Gandharva, nor Yaksha, nor Pannaga.
vrm.5.51 "Recognizing the killing of Rakshasas in the forest of Janasthana, about the killing of Vali and about the friendship between Rama and Sugreeva, realize your own interest.
vrm.5.53 "If the venerable Sugreeva, true to his promise, can make me traverse from this ocean of sorrow, please be cool to Hanuma.
vrm.5.55 "Shall I jump into fire now or into the mouth of a submarine fire? Or shall I give up my body as a feed to the marine animals?" "By me who has ruined the entire task, how can I, even while remaining alive, see Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras or Rama and Lakshmana the best of men?"
vrm.5.55 If their death occurs, Sugreeva along with his associates will also die.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing the words spoken by me, which are adored by the assemblies of royal sages, Seetha the princess, with her eyes filled with tears, spoke to me, as follows:" O the foremost among the Vanaras! Who are you? Why did you come here? How did you come? What type of friendship do you have with Rama? You ought to tell me all this?" "Hearing those words of Seetha, I spoke the following words: O princess! There is a courageous king of Vanaras, by name Sugreeva, who is a mighty companion to your husband, possessing a terrific prowess.
vrm.5.58 "Know me, who came here, as Hanuma, a servant of that Sugreeva, Rama, you husband, who is unwearied in his actions, sent me here for your sake.
vrm.5.58 Act so that both those heroes Rama and Lakshmana together with Sugreeva quickly arrive here, soon after hearing my tale
vrm.5.58 Know me to be a Vanara, an envoy of Rama and a minister of Sugreeva.
vrm.5.58 As Rama s messenger, I sought your presence here!" ‘That Sugreeva of great splendour enquired about your welfare.
vrm.5.58 Rama, the great lord along with Lakshmana made friendship with Sugreeva, whose kingdom was taken away by Vali taking Agni for a witness.
vrm.5.58 Killing Vali by a single arrow in combat, Rama made Sugreeva lord of Vanaras an emperor of Vanaras
vrm.5.58 To whom is this strength of the Vanaras not already known, who go even to the presence of Gods, when invited by them for help? Sugreeva the king of Vanaras has sent the foregoing message to you.
vrm.5.58 "I performed all tasks for accomplishing the purpose of Sugreeva, by the grace of Rama and also through your energy.
vrm.5.59 In all its royal high ways, the name of Rama and others was proclaimed by me as follows: Victorious is Rama, the exceedingly strong and the mighty Lakshmana too! Victorious is King Sugreeva, protected by Rama.
vrm.5.59 She was delighted to hear the companionship cropped up between Rama and Sugreeva.
vrm.5.61 A very powerful Vanara called Dadhimukha, who was a high souled eminent Vanara and the maternal uncle of Sugreeva always protected that garden.
vrm.5.61 Reaching that huge grove, which was very dear to the heart of Sugreeva, those Vanaras became highly excessive in their behaviour.
vrm.5.62 That Dadhimukha, Sugreeva s maternal uncle, quickly recovering his breath, was enraged and resisted those Vanaras, who were highly intoxicated because of drinking of honey, by a proper reprimand.
vrm.5.62 We will go to the place where the thick necked Sugreeva, our lord of the Vanaras stays together with Rama.
vrm.5.62 "This Madhuvana is indeed cherished by our high souled king, Sugreeva and it derived from his father and grand father.
vrm.5.62 That Sugreeva can get these Vanaras together with their companions, killed as a matter of punishment.
vrm.5.62 That Dadhimukha, the Vanara, reached the place where that Sugreeva, the intelligent Vanara was there, within an interval of only a moment.
vrm.5.62 Seeing Rama, Lakshmana and Sugreeva, Dadhimukha descended to a level ground, from the sky.
vrm.5.62 That Dadhimukha of a great prowess, the supreme lord of the guards, surrounded by all those garden guards keeping a sad face, made a respectful salutation to Sugreeva with his head, by falling down and touching with his head, the auspicious feet of Sugreeva.
vrm.5.63 Just on seeing Dadhimukha, who fell touching his feet with his head, Sugreeva the chief of Vanaras, with an agitated mind, spoke the following words: "O valiant Vanara! Stand up, rise! Why have you fallen on my feet? I grant you immunity from fear.
vrm.5.63 Thus inspired by the high souled Sugreeva with confidence, that highly intelligent Dadhimukha, rising up, spoke the following words: "O king! Madhuvana was indeed not set free previously at any time by Riksharajas, your father, or by you, or by even Vali.
vrm.5.63 Lakshmana, the killer of hostile heroes and a very wise man, asked that Sugreeva, the excellent of Vanaras as follows while Dadhimukha was thus reporting to him: "O king! Why has this Vanara the garden protector, come here? Pointing out what matter has this Vanara in grief, spoken these words to you?"
vrm.5.63 Hearing the words of the high souled Lakshmana, the eloquent Sugreeva replied to him as follows: "O esteemed Lakshmana! Dadhimukha, the valiant Vanara is informing that the foremost of Vanaras, who returned from the southern direction, after searching for Seetha as also Angada and other heroes consumed honey.
vrm.5.63 Hearing the words coming from the mouth of Sugreeva, which were pleasant for the ears, Rama was rejoiced.
vrm.5.63 Hearing those words of Dadhimukha, Sugreeva with a charming neck, was very much pleased and further spoke to Dadhimukha, the guardian of the grove as follows: "I am happy that Madhuvana has been enjoyed by those Vanaras, who have accomplished their act.
vrm.5.63 Seeing Rama and Lakshmana with their eyes filled with ecstatic delight, the princes, who were thrilled with joy and who accomplished their aim, Sugreeva that king of the Vanaras was very much delighted, knowing that accomplishment of their work is coming close to their hands and his limbs were thrilled with joy.
vrm.5.64 Hearing the words of Sugreeva, Dadhimukha the Vanara was pleased and offered his salutation with reverence to Rama, Lakshmana
vrm.5.64 After offering salutation to Sugreeva and to the mighty Rama and Lakshmana, that Dadhimukha accompanied by his valiant Vanaras, sprang into the air.
vrm.5.64 Sugreeva“, your uncle, the lord of Vanaras and the king was pleased and told me, send all the Vanaras here
vrm.5.64 What is there remaining, except to go to the place where Sugreeva my uncle is there?" "I shall do whatever all the leaders of Vanaras together tell me.
vrm.5.64 "All of us, who reached here, are waiting for the right moment to go to that place where Sugreeva, the imperishable king of the heroic Vanaras, is.
vrm.5.64 Even before Angada landed there, Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras spoke to the louts eyed Rama, who was afflicted with grief as follows: "Be pacified! Happiness to you! The princess has been seen.
vrm.5.64 "O Rama, of unlimited prowess! Do not encounter troubled thoughts now!" Meanwhile, when the Vanaras, who are proud of Hanuma s performance and who are making noise as though they are proclaiming about the accomplishment of their act are approaching Kishkindha Sugreeva heard certain sounds expressing joy, in the vicinity of the sky.
vrm.5.64 Then, hearing that clamour of the Vanaras, Sugreeva the chief of the Vanaras became rejoiced at heart, duly stretching and curling up his tail in joy.
vrm.5.64 Those heroes, having Angada as their chief, exceedingly pleased as they were and filled with joy, landed at the vicinity of Sugreeva and Rama.
vrm.5.64 Thereupon, Lakshmana with love looked with reverence on the joyful Sugreeva, who earlier decidedly apprised about the aforesaid Hanuma, having accomplished the task.
vrm.5.65 Keeping Angada the prince in their forefront those Vanaras, on reaching Mount Prasravana having forests of variegated appearance, offered their salutation by bowing their heads in reverence to Rama and the mighty Lakshmana, greeting Sugreeva respectfully.
vrm.5.65 On hearing about the alliance between Rama and Sugreeva, she was quite pleased.
vrm.5.65 "While Sugreeva is hearing nearby and while you are telling the words in this way, let this jewel, which is deliberately well guarded, be given to Rama.
vrm.5.66 Seeing that excellent jewel, Rama emaciated with grief, having his eyes filled with tears, spoke to Sugreeva as follows: "Even as a cow, who is affectionate towards her offspring, gushes forth the milk from her teats due to her love at the very sight of her calf, so does my heart too melt through the sight of this excellent jewel.
vrm.5.66 "O gentle Sugreeva! Seeing now this excellent jewel, I am considering it as surely as obtaining the sight of my father as well as Janaka, the king of Videha.
vrm.5.67 "With her eyes filled with tears, looking miserable, with her words ambiguously coming out of her coked throat, bewildered as she was, at the though of my flying away and afflicted with a gush of grief she spoke to me as follows: "O Hanuma! Inquire those two brothers Rama and Lakshmana looking like Lions, Sugreeva together with his ministers and all others about their welfare.
vrm.5.68 "Hearing that appeal of Seetha, that was somewhat good in its meaning, courteous and duly furnished with reasons, I gave then my remaining reply as follows: O Seetha the princess! Sugreeva, the lord of the troops of Vanaras and Rikshas, the excellent one among the Vanaras and endowed with strength, is firmly determined to rescue you.
vrm.5.68 "So many Vanaras, endowed with prowess, perseverance great strength and who can rush to any place as they wish, are intensely committed to Sugreeva s command.
vrm.5.68 No one in the vicinity of Sugreeva is inferior to me.
vrm.6.2 The glorious Sugreeva made the following reply, which was
vrm.6.3 Hearing the well founded and highly reasonable words of Sugreeva, Rama concurred with him and spoke then to Hanuma as follows:
vrm.6.4 Hence, let us depart today itself with all the troops accompanying us, Oh, Sugreeva!” “By seeing the omens which are becoming visible, I deduce that I shall bring back Seetha the daughter of Janaka, by killing Ravana.
vrm.6.4 Then Rama the virtuous man versed in moral law, who was well adored by Sugreeva the king of Vanaras and Lakshmana, again spoke as follows: “Let general Nila accompanied by strength of hundred thousand warriors go before the army, to explore the way.
vrm.6.4 “Hearing the words of Rama, Sugreeva with great valour, the commander of forces and the lion among Vanaras gave orders to the Vanaras accordingly.
vrm.6.4 Thereafter Rama the virtuous man, treated respectfully by Sugreeva and Lakshmana, moved towards southern direction, along with the army.
vrm.6.4 All those Vanaras maintained by Sugreeva were rejoicing with delight.
vrm.6.4 Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, Rama and Lakshmana the destroyers of enemies were moving in the centre along with many robust and terrible Vanaras.
vrm.6.4 Keeping Sugreeva in front, Sushena and Jambavanta surrounded by many Rikshas, protected the hinder part of that army.
vrm.6.4 Thereafter, Rama the virtuous man, treated respectfully by Sugreeva and Lakshmana, moved towards southern direction, along with the army.
vrm.6.4 All the Vanaras ruled by Sugreeva were exceedingly pleased and cheerful.
vrm.6.4 Rama the foremost of those who entrance the mind, together with Sugreeva and Lakshmana quickly descended the mountain and went to the excellent woodland adjoining the sea.
vrm.6.4 “Oh, Sugreeva! We have reached the abode of Varuna.
vrm.6.4 “Let all the army be stationed at the sea shore, Sugreeva! Here, the time has come for us to think about the subject of crossing the ocean.
vrm.6.4 Hearing Ramas’ words, Sugreeva along with Lakshmana made the army to halt at the sea shore, stretched with trees.
vrm.6.4 That army of the Vanaras ruled by Sugreeva, stationed as three divisios looked fully dedicated to the cause of Rama.
vrm.6.8 “This insult to the city of Lanka and the palaces together with attack by Sugreeva on the glorious Ravana are still outrageous.
vrm.6.8 Thereafter the very strong Vajradamshtra, beset with great anger, took hold of a terrific iron club smeared with flesh and blood and spoke as follows: “What work for us with that pitiable and miserable Hanuma, when Rama along with Lakshmana and Sugreeva who are difficult to be conquered exist?” “Now itself, with this iron club, killing Rama, Lakshmana and Sugreeva after perturbing the army of Vanaras, I shall come back.
vrm.6.8 I alone will kill there, Rama along with Lakshman, Sugreeva along with Hanuma and all the Vanaras also.
vrm.6.8 At this time I alone will kill Sugreeva along with Lakshmana Hanuma along with Angada and all Vanaras.
vrm.6.9 “Now itself, we shall kill Rama along with Lakshmana and Sugreeva as well as the pitiable Hanuma by whom Lanka was attacked.
vrm.6.12 Knowing the whereabouts of Seetha, Rama and Lakshmana together with Sugreeva and other Vanaras reached the other shore of the ocean.
vrm.6.18 His acceptance is irreproachable in the eyes of good men” Then, Sugreeva the chief of Vanaras closely analyzed and examined the aforesaid words of Rama and thereafter spoke the following most auspicious words: “What matters if this ranger of night is very dangerous or other wise, if he can desert his own brother at a time of peril? Whom will he not betray subsequently?”
vrm.6.18 Hearing the words of Sugreeva, Rama who was truly mighty looked round all of them smiled a little and spoke the following words to Lakshmana, of virtuous characteristics: “Without studying scriptures and without serving elders, it is not possible to speak such words as Sugreeva spoke.
vrm.6.18 Hearing Ramas’ words Sugreeva who was together with the highly wise Lakshmana stood up saluting and spoke these words:
vrm.6.18 Is not Vibhishana the brother of cruel Ravana?” Speaking thus to Rama, the best of Raghu dynasty, Sugreeva who knew the mode of expression, thereafter kept silent.
vrm.6.18 Hearing those words of Sugreeva, Rama pondered over the words and thereafter spoke more auspicious words to Sugreeva as follows:
vrm.6.18 “O, Sugreeva, Lord of Vanara troops! If I wish, I can kill those Pisachas, Danavas, Yakshas and Rakshasas living on earth with just a tip of my finger” “It is narrated how by a dove, its enemy a fowler when it came for a refuge, was received according to rules of hospitality and was invited for a feast with its own flesh.
vrm.6.18 This is my solemn pledge” “O, Sugreeva, the chief of Vanaras! Let him either be Vibhishana or even Ravana himself I have given an assurance of safety to him.
vrm.6.18 Hearing Rama’ s words, Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras, overwhelmed as he was with cordial friendship, replied to Rama as follows: “O, Rama, who knows righteousness, the crest jewel among lords of the world! What surprise is there in thinking that you, duly endowed with true essence of life and established in a right path, speak these venerable words?” “My inmost spirit also feels Vibhishana to be a genuine person, he being well examined from all angles, by act of inference and by his appearance.
vrm.6.18 Let him get our friendship too” Hearing those words of Sugreeva, Rama the king of men, as acknowledged by Sugreeva, held meeting with Vibhishana, as Indra once met Garuda the king of Birds.
vrm.6.19 Hanuman and Sugreeva asked Vibhishana as follows: How can we cross the imperturbable ocean, the habitation of Varuna, by all of us along with our army of Vanaras possessing a great splendor?” “In what manner shall we along with the army swiftly cross the sea, the lord of streams and rivers, and arrive at that strategy?”
vrm.6.19 Hearing the aforesaid words of the learned Rakshasa Vibhishana, Sugreeva came to the place where Rama and Lakshmana were there.
vrm.6.19 The long necked Sugreeva then started to tell the auspicious words of Vibhishana, advising Rama to approach the ocean to allow him a passage.
vrm.6.19 Then that highly illustrious Rama replied to Sugreeva, the ruler of Vanaras who was skillful in action and who was accompanied by Lakshmana.
vrm.6.19 Sugreeva is a learned person.
vrm.6.19 Hearing Ramas’ words, Sugreeva and Lakshmana both, valiant as they were, spoke with proper courtesy, the following words:
vrm.6.24 That army of valiant Vanaras along with the King Sugreeva looked charming like a full moon night in atumn presided over by the moon and illuminated by bright stars.
vrm.6.24 Let Sugreeva the king of Vanaras protect the rear guard of the army, resembling Varuna who remains encircled with splendour and protects the western quarter of the earth.
vrm.6.24 Then, Rama with great splendour, spoke the following words to Sugreeva,
vrm.6.24 Hearing the words of Rama, Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras released Shuka the messenger, as per the order of Rama.
vrm.6.24 That Rama the killer of Viraadha, Kabandha and Khara came along with Sugreeva to the place of Seetha.
vrm.6.25 "Become unrecognisable to others, enter the army of Vanaras and make out the real quantum of their army, their prowess, as to which Vanaras are important among them, which ministers of Rama and Sugreeva have come together, which Vanaras are abiding in front, which Vanaras are valiant, how that bridge was constructed across the ocean full of water, how the encamping is done for those great souled Vanaras the determination, strength and the striking senses of Rama and of the heroic Lakshmana.
vrm.6.25 "That army protected by Rama and Lakshmana as well as Sugreeva, are exceedingly unconquerable even by all the Devas and Danavas.
vrm.6.26 Seeing that great army of Vanaras, which was boundless and intolerable, the king Ravana asked Sarana as follows: "Which Vanaras are important among them? Who are valiant ones? Who are the very strong ones? Who will stay in front at all places, with great energy?" "To whom Sugreeva will hear? Who are the generals of the commanders of the Vanara heads? What is the influence of the Vanaras? O, Sarana! Tell me all.
vrm.6.26 "He, the valiant one, who holds his arms high, who tramples the earth under his feet as he marches, whose face is turned towards Lanka, who in fury is knitting his brows very much, who is resembling a mountain peak in stature, who is like filaments of a louts in hue, who is excess of anger continuously lashes out his tail and the swish of which is heard in ten regions, he is the prince named Angada, anointed by Sugreeva the king of Vanaras and is challenging you to the battle.
vrm.6.26 "He, the valiant one, who holds his arms high, who tramples the earth under his feet as he marches, whose face is turned towards Lanka, who in fury is knitting his brows very much, who is remsebling amountain peak in stature, who is like filaments ofa louts in hue, who is excess of anger continuously lashes out his tail and the swish of hwich is heard in ten regious, he is the prince named Angada, anointed by Sugreeva the king of Vanaras and is challenging you to the battle.
vrm.6.26 "This Angada, a worthy son of Vali and always dear to Sugreeva, is coming forwards for Rama s interests, as Varuna is to Indra s.
vrm.6.26 "A Vanara called Sweta of sivlver hue who is quick witted and cleaver, of terricfic prowess and a warrior renowned in the three worlds, has come to Sugreeva swiftly, dividing the army of Vanaras and brining great delight to the troops, he goes back at once.
vrm.6.27 Hundreds" and thousands of troop leaders who are resolved to be the servants of Sugreeva rally behind him, carrying trees with them and with an intention to attack Lanka soon.
vrm.6.28 “These Vanaras, the attendants of Sugreeva born of Devas and Gandharvas, are able to change their form at will and always stay in Kishkindha.
vrm.6.28 “The other whom you see as an unshakable mountain and standing in the centre of Vanaras as a Lord of all chiefs of Vanaras, with a boundless energy and who, like a Himalayan hill, very much radiating the other Vanaras by his splendour, glory, wisdom, strength and his noble descent, who occupies along with the chiefs of Army Generals, a secret place called Kishkindha, with its forests and trees and the place inaccessible because of its impassable mountains, in which is established a good fortune of Devas and human beings, whose charming and golden coloured garland with hundred lotuses is beautifying, that person is Sugreeva.
vrm.6.28 “This Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, having great strength and valour, always surrounded by a colossal army, is approaching you to make war, accompanied by the valiant Vibhishana and the ministers, as also a hundred thousand crores of Shankas, a thousand Mahashankus, a hundred Vrindas, a thousand mahavrindas, a hundred padmas, a thousand Mahapadmas, a hundred kharves, samudras and Mahaughas of the same number, and a crore of Mahanghas wholearmy as such is identical of an ocean.
vrm.6.29 Beholding those foremost of Vanara leaders pointed out by Shuka the most valiant Lakshmana Ramas’ right arm, his own brother Vibhishana standing close to Rama, the terribly powerful Sugreeva the king of all Vanaras, the strong Angada grandson of Indra the wielder of thunderbolt, the powerful Hanuman, the imincible Jambavan, Sushena, Kumuda, Nila, Nala the excellent of Vanaras, Gaja, Gavaksha, Sharabha, Mainda and Dvivida that Ravana his heart became agitated a little, was enraged and then abused those two heroes Shuka and Sarana who had completed their report.
vrm.6.29 Having gone in a disguised manner, those spies saw Rama and Lakshmana together with Sugreeva and Vibhishana in the neighbourhood of Mountain Suvela.
vrm.6.30 Hearing Ravanas’ words, Shardula the excellent spy then started to narrate these words for Ravanas’ information: “Certainly, king Sugreeva, the son of Riksharajasa, is difficult to be conquered in battle.
vrm.6.31 Rama, encircled by an extensive army led forward by Sugreeva, is said to have arrived at the sea shore, to kill me.
vrm.6.31 O, Seetha! Sugreeva the king of Vanaras with his neck broken and Hanuman with his jaw removed were laid down and killed by the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.32 She heard Ravana narrating about Ramas’ friendly relationship with Sugreeva, as earlier apprised by Hanuman.
vrm.6.36 "Which learned man, understand the truth in the scriptures, would speak thus harshly to a mighty person in power, were it not to instigate him?" "Why should I give back Seetha, who is like Lakshmi the goddess of fortune without the lotus, having brought her away from the forest, through fear of Rama?" "See Rama killed within a few days by me, along with Lakshmana together with Sugreeva in the midst of crores of Vanaras.
vrm.6.37 Meanwhile, Rama the king of men and Sugreeva the Sovereign of Vanaras, Hanuman the son of Vayu, Jambavan the king of the Rikshas, Vibhishana the Rakshasa, Angada the son of Vali, Lakshmana, Sushena along with his kinsfolk, Mainda, Dvivida, Gaja, Gavaksha, Kumuda, Nala and Panasa, all having reached the enemy s territory, assembled to take counsel together.
vrm.6.37 "Let the mighty Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, the valiant Jambavan the king of Riksha and Vibhishana, the younger brother of the Lord of Rakshasas occupy the central position of the army.
vrm.6.38 Rama, who was followed by Lakshmana, having made up his mind to ascend Mount Suvela, spoke in a gentle and prime voice to Sugreeva and to Vibhishana who was the knower of what is right, a Rakshasa devoted to him who was experienced in counsel and a knower of prescribed rules as follows:
vrm.6.38 Lakshmana too who took delight in his own valour and steadfastness, keeping ready his mighty bow with arrows, followed behind Rama Sugreeva along with his ministers and Vibhishana ascended the mountain, by following him.
vrm.6.38 Thereafter, Rama along with Lakshmana as well as Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras together with troops and captions of troops, duly greeted welcomingly and treated hospitably by Vibhishana, halted happily on the mountain resort of Suvela.
vrm.6.40 Then, Rama along with Sugreeva, together with the troop leaders of Vanaras, ascended the top of Suvela mountain which was having a circumference of sixteen miles.
vrm.6.40 On seeing Ravana, Sugreeva got up all at once, while Rama and the chiefs of the army of Vanaras were looking on.
vrm.6.40 Gathering up his strength and courage, Sugreeva, in an impulse of fury, bounded from the summit of the mountain and then sprang to the top of the gate where Ravana was.
vrm.6.40 Thus speaking, Sugreeva jumped up all at once, bounced over on ravana, pulled his brightly coloured crown from his head and threw it away on the ground.
vrm.6.40 Seeing Sugreeva about to rush upon him again, Ravana spoke as follows: "You were Sugreeva one who has a handsome neck, when your were not present before my eyes.
vrm.6.40 Speaking thus, Ravana raised up and quickly flung Sugreeva to the ground with both his arms.
vrm.6.40 Bouncing like a ball, Sugreeva flung back his adversary with his arms.
vrm.6.40 Ravana and Sugreeva of great strength carried on a duel which was unbearable, with perspiration broke out on their limbs, with their bodies red with blood, each clung to other other paralyzing his opponent s movements resembling silk cotton and Kimshuka trees, followed by blows of fists, slaps of hands blows of elbows and blows of fingers on each other.
vrm.6.40 The two warriors, Sugreeva and Ravana, who were skilled in wrestling, excuted innumerable and myraid evolutions, taking up diverse postures, moving in a curved line like an ox s urine, coming and going, stepping side ways, having a retrograde motion to avoid blows, turning about abandoning the attack, dashing towards each other, leaping, standing firm and erect, retreated, turned sideways, rushed in a bent posture, ran lifting their foot to kick the opponent and by letting go or stealing away.
vrm.6.40 Knowing it, Sugreeva flew into the sky triumphantly shaking off all fatigue, while Ravana, baffled by Sugreeva stood confounded there alone.
vrm.6.40 That Sugreeva, the offspring of the Sun, who was endowed with a speed of the wind, having accomplished that feat there, increasing the military zeal of the foremost of Raghu dynasty, honoured by the Vanara leaders and delighted, rejoined the army.
vrm.6.41 Seeing the marks of conflict on the person of Sugreeva, Rama the elder brother of Lakshmana after embracing Sugreeva spoke these words.
vrm.6.41 Hearing Ramas’ words, Sugreeva replied as follows: “O, brave Rama! Seeing Ravana who had taken away your consort and being conscious of my own strength, how can I act otherwise?”
vrm.6.41 Complimenting that hero Sugreeva who was thus speaking, Rama addressed Lakshmana, who was endowed with auspicious marks, saying: “O, Lakshmana! Beside these fresh waters and trees laden with fruit, let us divide this multitude of troops, drawing it up in a battle array and remain alert.
vrm.6.41 Rama, who knew the fitting moment to act, along with Sugreeva made ready the great army and commanded the army to advance, at the appropriate moment for the battle.
vrm.6.41 Then, Vibhishana, Sugreeva, Hanuman, Jambavan the king of Rikshas, Nala, Nila and Lakshmana accompanied that Rama.
vrm.6.41 Sugreeva, along with all the chiefs of Vanaras equal to the strength of Garuda as well as Vayu the god of the wind, was stationed himself in the middle of the fort.
vrm.6.41 Thirty six crores of Vanaras, highly renowned generals stood besiezed, where the Vanara Sugreeva was there, having exerted pressure on the Rakshasas occupying that post.
vrm.6.41 That army of Vanaras, guarded by Rama, Lakshmana and Sugreeva became even more invinceible than all the Suras and Asuras put together.
vrm.6.41 Under the order of Sugreeva, the invincible Vanara, Sushena was patrolling the gates and wandering like a moon among the stars.
vrm.6.42 The Vanaras, who were able to change their form at will, shouting Victory“ to the mighty Rama and the valiant Lakshmana!” Victory“ of Sugreeva protected by Raghava!” and roaring, rushed towards the defensive walls of Lanka.
vrm.6.42 Rama along with Lakshmana and Sugreeva the mighty lord of the Vanaras, seeking the northern gate while remaining stationed in the north west stood besieging that gate.
vrm.6.42 Then, the gigantic Vanaras swiftly struck those Rakshasas with trees, mountain tops, nails and teeth “Victorious is king Sugreeva” thus arose a loud war cry.
vrm.6.43 Sugreeva the king of Vanaras confronted well with Praghasa and the glorious Lakshmana confronted with Virupaksha in the battle.
vrm.6.43 Pierced in the limbs by sharp arrows by Praghasa the swift handed Rakshasa, Sugreeva the Lord of Rakshasas immediately killed Praghasa who was appearing to swallow the Vanara troops with a Saptaparna tree.
vrm.6.44 Seeing the enemy defeated, those Vanaras along with Sugreeva and Vibhishana were delighted and praised Angada as an efficient warrior.
vrm.6.46 Then, along with Sugreeva, Vibhishana came to that place, after Indrajit finished his work and retired even as Indra would, after raining.
vrm.6.46 Seeing Rama and Lakshmana riddle with arrows and pierced in every limb and bone of their bodies, a great fear had taken possession of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.46 Vibhishana then spoke to that Sugreeva, who was frightened, whose eyes were filled with tears, looking helpless and whose eyes were agitated in grief.
vrm.6.46 “Have no fear, O Sugreeva! Stay this rush of tears.
vrm.6.46 “O, Sugreeva! Be courageous and bring about courage in me, having no protector.
vrm.6.46 Thus speaking, Vibhishana then wiped the charming eyes of Sugreeva with his hand moistened in water.
vrm.6.46 Then, the pious minded Vibhishana took water, enchanted it with an incantation and wiped the eyes of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.46 Having dried the face of the wise Sugreeva Vibhishana spoke the following words full of good sense and comfort.
vrm.6.46 “O, Sugreeva the king of Vanaras! This is not the time to cling to despondency.
vrm.6.46 Having emboldened Sugreeva, Vibhishana the foremost of Rakshasas once again reassured that army of Vanaras, who were pushing away.
vrm.6.49 All those foremost of Vanaras who were exceedingly strong, including Sugreeva, plunged in grief, were standing around those two illustrious warriors.
vrm.6.49 "O, Sugreeva! You ought to return at once from here since knowing that you are bereft of my support, Ravana will overcome you, O king!"
vrm.6.49 "O, Sugreeva! Recross the sea with your army, keeping Angada in front and with your followers, Nila and Nala.
vrm.6.49 "O, Sugreeva! It is not possible for mortals to avoid their destiny.
vrm.6.49 O, Sugreeva the tormentat of enemies! Fearing to fail in your duty, you have done all that which a friend and a comrade could do.
vrm.6.50 Meanwhile, Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, possessing a great splendour and a mighty power, enquired saying, "Why is this army agitated, like a ship driven out of its course in water?" Hearing the words of Sugreeva, Angada the son of Vali replied, saying "Do you not see the high souled Rama and Lakshmana of the great chariot, those two valiant sons of Dasaratha covered with darts lying all bloody in a bed of arrows?" Thereupon, Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras said to his son Angada: "To my mind, there is some othere cause why the Vanaras are bewildereed.
vrm.6.50 In the midst of this turmoil, the valiant Vibhishana, wielding a mace in his hand came there and cheered Sugreeva and Rama saying Victory" to Rama! Victory to Rama!.
vrm.6.50 Observing Vibhishana to be the cause of panic among the Vanaras, Sugreeva spoke to the illustrious Jambavan the king of Rikshas who stood near as follows:
vrm.6.50 "You reassemble those Vanaras immediately, who in fear have scattered in many directions and inform them that it is Vibhishana who has come!" Thus spoken by Sugreeva, Jambavan the king of Rikshas called the fugitive Vanaras back and restored them to confidence.
vrm.6.50 Then, Sugreeva the magnanimous King of Vanaras embraced that Vibhishana thus lamenting and spoke the following words: "O, knower of what is right! You shall certainly reign over Lanka.
vrm.6.50 Consoling and convincing Vibhishana thus, Sugreeva spoke to Sushena, his father in law, who was on his side as follows: "Taking these two brothers, Rama and Lakshmana with the troops of Vanaras who are strong, you go to Kishkindha, till these two scourgers of their foes have recovered their consciousness.
vrm.6.50 "Hearing the words of Sugreeva, Sushena replied as followers: A highly terrific and great was between Devas and Asuras was perceived by me.
vrm.6.51 Having spoken thus to his ministers, Ravana the Lord of Rakshasas said to his Rakshasas who stood round him there as follows "You immediately discover from what cause this general rejoicing among all these Vanaras coming for the their present grievous situation! Thus commanded by Ravana, they mounted the rampart very briskly and saw the army lead by the high souled Sugreeva and also the highly fortunate Rama and Lakshmana who were relieved of the terrific shackle of arrow a and risen up together.
vrm.6.53 Polluted by anger, with long and burning sighs, he addressed the cruel and mighty Vajradamshtra, a Rakshasa as follows "O, warrior! Go ahead as the head of the Rakshasas and slay Rama the son of Dasaratha, as also Sugreeva and his Vanaras!" "So it be" answered the leader of the Rakshasas who was a conjurer and departed with many divisions of the army that surrounded him.
vrm.6.55 "There is no doubt that he will prove victorious and Rama, Lakshmana, the mighty Sugreeva and the other terrible Vanaras.
vrm.6.56 Then, the troops of deities along with Rama himself, the exceedingly strong Lakshmana, Sugreeva and other Vanaras and the mighty Vibhishana paid homage to Hanuman.
vrm.6.57 Thereafter, the evil minded Prahasta sallied forth for victory towards the army of Sugreeva, whom in his folly, imagined he would destroy, with an accelerated speed as a grass hopper rushes towards a flame.
vrm.6.59 Seeing Ravana with his radiant bow, in the battle, Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras tearing up a huge mountain top, ran towards that king of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.59 Seizing a mountain top with its many trees and ridges, Sugreeva hurled it on Ravana the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.59 The enraged Ravana, taking that arrow with the speed of a thunder bolt of Indra and possessing the brilliance of a fire, hurled it to kill Sugreeva.
vrm.6.59 That arrow released by Ravana s arm reached Sugreeva, having a bodily splendour equal to that of Indra s thunder bolt, and pierced his body in its flight as formerly Guha s spear when he discharged it at the Krauncha
vrm.6.62 "This Rama, the son of Dasaratha, a strong man along with Sugreeva, having crossed the ocean, is cutting short our race.
vrm.6.63 "See today in battle, the mountain like Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, looking like a cloud illuminated by the sun, thrown about, dissipated.
vrm.6.63 In the battle, I will kill Rama, Lakshmana, the mighty Sugreeva and even Hanuma, by whom the city of Lanka was burnt off and the Rakshasas were killed.
vrm.6.67 When that Angada the foremost among the Vanaras fell down unconscious on the ground, Kumbhakarna ran towards Sugreeva, taking that spike in his hand.
vrm.6.67 Then, seeing the mighty Kumbhakarna coming suddenly towards him, the valiant Sugreeva, the king of the Vanaras, sprang up all at once.
vrm.6.67 Uplifting and tightly holding a mountain top, the mighty Sugreeva ran towards the sturdy Kumbhakarna with speed.
vrm.6.67 Seeing that Sugreeva coming rapidly towards him, Kumbhakarna, with all his limbs braced, stood facing the king of Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 Seeing Kumbhakarna who stood devouring the Vanaras and with his body smeared with the blood of the Vanaras, Sugreeva spoke as follows:
vrm.6.67 Hearing those words, endowed with strength and courage, spoken by Sugreeva, Kumbhakarna, the foremost of Rakshasas, spoke the following words:
vrm.6.67 Why do you roar?" Hearing the words of Kumbhakarna, Sugreeva, firmly holding the mountain, hurled it quickly on him.
vrm.6.67 Holding firmly the spike, which was emitting a flash of lightning, he hurled it to kill Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras and Rikshas.
vrm.6.67 Uprooting a crest from Malaya mountain standing in the vicinity of Lanka and approaching Sugreeva, he struck him with it.
vrm.6.67 Struck by the mountain top in battle, that Sugreeva fell unconscious on the ground.
vrm.6.67 Seizing hold of that Sugreeva having wonderful and terrific prowess in battle, that Kumbhakarna took him away, as an impetuous wind takes away a cloud.
vrm.6.67 Lifting up Sugreeva appearing like a huge cloud in the battle field and marching forward, Kumbhakarna shone like Mount Meru, distinguished by its very high and formidable peak.
vrm.6.67 Then, being praised in the battle field by the Rakshasas for having seized hold of Sugreeva and hearing the sounds of the Devas who were wondering at the seizure of Sugreeva, Kumbhakarna the valiant chief of Rakshasas, sallied forth.
vrm.6.67 While taking away that Sugreeva looking like Indra, Kumbhakarna the adversary of Indra and having the prowess of Indra, thought, "If he is killed, all this army including Rama gets destroyed.
vrm.6.67 Seeing the army of Vanaras running away hither and thither and Sugreeva the Vanara even being taken away by Kumbhakarna, the intellectual Hanuma, the son of Vayu thought as follows: "While Sugreeva is being taken away in this way, what is to be done by me? I shall certainly do that which is justifiable to be done by me.
vrm.6.67 "Let all the Vanaras be delighted while Sugreeva the king of Vanaras is liberated and the mighty Kumbhakarna, with his body crumbled by the blows of my fists, killed by me in battle.
vrm.6.67 "Even otherwise, this Sugreeva can win the freedom himself despite he is taken away by Devas including Asuras and Uragas.
vrm.6.67 "I think Sugreeva is not yet conscious of his self, as Kumbhakarna struck him with the blow of a mountain in the battle.
vrm.6.67 "Regaining his consciousness within a moment in this great battle, this Sugreeva will do what is good for himself and for his Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 "If I liberate this great souled Sugreeva, there will be a painful dislike for him and a perpetual in fame.
vrm.6.67 Taking that Sugreeva who was throbbing, that kumbhakarna entered the City of Lanka, where he was greatly revered with showers of foremost flowers by the citizens staying in celestial cars, streets, houses and gate ways of temples.
vrm.6.67 Sprinkled by those showers of pop corn and fragrant waters and due to the coolness of the royal roads, the mighty Sugreeva gradually regained his consciousness.
vrm.6.67 The great souled Sugreeva, who was interposed between Kumbhakarna s shoulders, regaining his consciousness with great difficulty and observing the royal highway of the city, repeatedly thought as follows: "Having been captivated in this way, what should I do now? I have to do a proper act now which is desirable and beneficial to the Vanaras.
vrm.6.67 Thus thinking, Sugreeva tore asunder Kumbhakarna s ears by his nails as also nose by his teeth and ribs by his feet.
vrm.6.67 Torn asunder with teeth and nails by Sugreeva, that Kumbhakarna with his ears and nose deprived and his limbs moistened with blood, was subdued with rage, threw Sugreeva down on the floor and crushed him.
vrm.6.67 Crushed down on the floor by that terrific Kumbhakarna and struck by the Rakshasas, Sugreeva moved with speed like a ball towards the sky and got united with Rama.
vrm.6.67 After the departure of Sugreeva, Kumbhakarna the adversary of Indra, with a rage, marched ahead quickly for the battle.
vrm.6.67 That Kumbhakarna s arm, identical to a mountain peak, which was chopped off by Rama s arrow, fell along with the hammer on that army of Sugreeva and killed that regiment of Vanaras.
vrm.6.69 Those great souled and the foremost of Vanaras, who were earlier thrown down by Kumbhakarna, regained their self and approached Sugreeva.
vrm.6.69 That Sugreeva, while looking on, saw the army of Vanaras running away hither and thither, as they were tormented of the fear of Narantaka.
vrm.6.69 To that Sugreeva who was seeing his army running away, Narantaka appeared, coming seated on the back of a Horse, holding a javelin in his hand.
vrm.6.69 After seeing Narantaka, the vastly splendoured Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras spoke thus, to Angada, the valiant prince, having a prowess equal to Indras’ as follows: “Go out and quickly detach the lives of this valiant Rakshasa, who is riding a Horse and consuming the army of his enemies.
vrm.6.69 Hearing the words of Sugreeva his sovereign, that valiant Angada then came bouncing from his army, as the sun coming out of a cloud.
vrm.6.72 “I do not find any Rakshasa, who can destroy the valiant Rama along with Lakshmana, Sugreeva and Vibhishana accompanied by their army in battle now.
vrm.6.73 He also struck Sugreeva, Rishabha, Angada and Dvivida with sharp and terrific arrows endowed with boons and made them breathless.
vrm.6.73 With lances, spikes and sharp arrows, charged with sacred texts, Indrajit the excellent Rakshasa struck all those foremost of Vanaras, namely Hanuman, Sugreeva, Angada, Gandhamadana, Jambavan, Sushena, Vegadarshina, Mainda, Dvivida, Nila, Gavaksha, Gavaya, Kesari, Hariloma, Vidyuddamshtra, Suryanana, Jyotimukha, a Vanara called Dadhimukha, Pavakaksha, Nala as also a Vanara named Kumuda.
vrm.6.73 This entire army of Sugreeva, whose leading warriors have fallen, looks no more charming.
vrm.6.74 Sugreeva, Nila, Angada and Jambavan could not understand what to do.
vrm.6.74 Seeing the entire army looking worried, Vibhishana, the best among the intelligent ones, spoke the following matchless words, consoling the warriors of Sugreeva, the lord of Vanaras: “Honouring the spell sacred of Brahma the creator, the two sons of the venerable Dasaratha have actually lost their free will and became dejected and have allowed themselves to be knocked down by the missiles of Indrajit.
vrm.6.74 Vibhishana and Hanuma saw Sugreeva, Angada, Nila, Sharabha, Gandhamadana, Gavaksha, Sushena, Vegadarshi, Mainda, Nala, Jyotimukha and a Vanara called Dvivida, who were struck down on the battle field.
vrm.6.74 Hearing the words of Jambavan, Vibhishana spoke the following words, “why do you enquire about Hanuman, passing over the venerable sons of Dasaratha?” “O venerable one! The exceptional affection, you are showing towards Hanuma, is not being shown towards Sugreeva or Angada or even Rama.
vrm.6.75 Then, Sugreeva of great majesty, the king of Vanaras spoke the following meaningful words to Hanuma, in order to inform him what they should do next.
vrm.6.75 The Vanara chiefs were commanded by Sugreeva as follows: “O Vanaras! Approaching the nearest gate, begin to wage the war.
vrm.6.76 Seeing those troops of Vanaras being tormented by a flood of arrows, Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, keeping Angada his brother’s son in the rear, rushed headlong towards Kumbha in the battle, as a swift lion would bounce upon an Elephant walking along the slopes of a mountain.
vrm.6.76 Uprooting many large trees beginning with Ashvakarna and many kinds of trees, Sugreeva the king of Vanaras hurled them on Kumbha.
vrm.6.76 Seeing that shower of trees chopped off by Kumbha, the mighty and illustrious Sugreeva of valour was not disturbed.
vrm.6.76 Enduring those arrows being hit, Sugreeva snatched away Kumbha’s bow, possessing the splendour of a rain bow and broke it all at once.
vrm.6.76 Thus bouncing swiftly and doing that most difficult task, the enraged Sugreeva spoke as follows to Kumbha, who was looking like an Elephant with a broken tusk.
vrm.6.76 Kumbha was thus honoured with those insulting words of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.76 The reopen, Kumbha pressingly clasped Sugreeva in his arms.
vrm.6.76 Then tossing up Kumbha, Sugreeva threw him down speedily into the ocean, showing him the bottom of the sea.
vrm.6.76 The enraged Kumbha, then jumping up and throwing down Sugreeva, struck him on his chest with his thunderbolt like fist.
vrm.6.76 Thus struck by Kumbha there, that mighty Sugreeva, the chief of Vanaras, tightened his fist which appeared like a thunderbolt.
vrm.6.76 The valiant Sugreeva forcefully descended his fist, which shone like the solar disc encircled by a thousand rays, on the breast of Kumbha.
vrm.6.76 When Kumbha was killed in battle by Sugreeva the chief of Vanaras, possessing a terrific prowess, the earth with its mountains and forests trembled.
vrm.6.77 Seeing his brother stretched on the ground, Nikumbha cast angry looks at Sugreeva, as it would burn him into ashes.
vrm.6.78 Today“, I will kill Rama, Lakshmana, Sugreeva the Vanara and the other Vanaras with my excellent arrows, O Rakshasas!” “By hurling the spears, I will destroy completely the huge army of Vanaras who arrived today to the battle field, as the fire destroys the dry wood.
vrm.6.81 Stirring up that army of mokeys with a multitude of his arrows, Indrajit replied to Hanuma, the foremost of mokeys as follows: "For whose sake, Sugreeva, yourself and Rama came here, I am going to kill Seetha now itself, while you stand looking on.
vrm.6.81 "O Vanara! After killing her, I will make a short work of Rama, Lakshmana, yourself too, Sugreeva and that vulgar Vibhishana thereafter.
vrm.6.82 "Informing Rama and even Sugreeva about this matter, we shall do that which both of them are prepared to do in return.
vrm.6.84 Fixing his gaze on Vibhishana’s face and looking at Sugreeva and those Vanaras, Lakshmana with tears pouring down, spoke the following words, with a splendid meaning: “O gentle Sir! Just on hearing through the words of Hanuma, saying that Seetha was killed by Indrajit, Rama entered into a swoon.
vrm.6.85 Having known the toughness of the conjuring tricks of the evil minded adversary, Rama spoke to the illustrious Lakshmana as follows: "O Lakshmana! You, accompanied by that entire army which stands at the disposal of Sugreeva, along with troop commanders with Hanuma as their head and protected by Jambavan the lord of Rikshas, who will be accompanied by his army, kill that Indrajit the prince of Rakshasas, rich in the power of conjuring tricks.
vrm.6.88 “Who can stand before me, while I release streams of arrows with my swift hand in battle, thundering like a cloud?” “Earlier on that day, in a nocturnal battle, both of you along with Sugreeva and other followers, were made unconscious by my arrows which were like thunderbolts and tips of missiles as also you were made to fall down on the floor.
vrm.6.91 Having offered salutation to Jambavan, Hanuma and all those Vanaras, that valiant Lakshmana of great brilliance then quickly came from there to the place where Sugreeva and Rama were there, by leaning himself upon vibhishana and Hanuma.
vrm.6.91 Then, on seeing Lakshmana standing up with sound health, Rama, Sugreeva, Vibhishana and the valiant Jambavan along with the army were rejoiced for a long time.
vrm.6.91 Hearing of Indrajit having been kille din battle, Sugreeva became delighted.
vrm.6.92 "Deserting us without taking away my tormentation, while Sugreeva, Lakshmana and Rama are still alive, where have you gone?" A huge rage enveloped Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, born of his son s death, while he was feeling distressed through grief as aforesaid.
vrm.6.93 Then, the virtuous Rama spoke also to Sugreeva, Vibhishana, Hanuma the Vanara, Jambavan, Mainda the foremost of Vanaras and even Dvivida, who were in close proximity to him as follows "Such wonderful power of this missile exists either with me or with the three eyed Rudra the lord of destruction.
vrm.6.94 To open the eyes of Ravana" "The kingdom was restored to the miserable Sugreeva, who was residing in Mount Rishyamuka, living with his wishes disappointed.
vrm.6.96 Seeing those Vanaras running away in defeat in that battle, Sugreeva kept Sushena in charge of his army and quickly threw his mind into the fight.
vrm.6.96 Keeping that Sushena who was equal to himself, his substitute, that Sugreeva, armed with the tree as a weapon, marched forward towards the enemy.
vrm.6.96 Taking huge rocks and various kinds of trees, all the Vanara warriors followed Sugreeva at his side and behind.
vrm.6.96 The gigantic Sugreeva roared at a high pitch in the battle field.
vrm.6.96 The colossal bodied Sugreeva smashed the Rakshasas, as the grown up trees are smashed by the wind at the time of dissolution of the world.
vrm.6.96 Sugreeva rained a hail of rocks on the army of Rakshasas, as a cloud rains a shower of hail stones on a host of Birds in a forest.
vrm.6.96 While those Rakshasas, thus defeated by Sugreeva, falling on the floor and then roaring, get diminished in number from all sides, the indomitable Virupaksha the Rakshasa, holding a bow, pronouncing his name by himself, descended from his chariot and mounted the back of an Elephant.
vrm.6.96 Virupaksha released dreadful arrows on Sugreeva who was at the front rank of the army.
vrm.6.96 Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, when he was struck severely with sharp arrows by that Rakshasa, shouted loudly.
vrm.6.96 Uplifting a tree and coming near that huge Elephant, the valiant Sugreeva, a thorough fighter, struck it on its face.
vrm.6.96 That huge Elephant, struck with the blow of Sugreeva, receded to a distance of four yards, sank down and roared too.
vrm.6.96 Descending quickly from his wounded Elephant, that valiant Rakshasa then seizing hold of his sword from a shield made of a bull s hide and advancing in rapid paces, facing towards Sugreeva his enemy, approached him, who stood firm, threatening him as it were.
vrm.6.96 Taking a huge rock, which looked like a cloud, that Sugreeva, who felt enraged, threw it on Virupaksha.
vrm.6.96 Wounded by the blow of the sword of that strong Rakshasa, Sugreeva became as though unconscious on the ground, for a moment.
vrm.6.96 Then, bouncing up suddenly in that great battle, Sugreeva, tightening his fist, brought it down on the Rakshasa s chest violently.
vrm.6.96 Feeling enraged, when struck by the blow of that fist, Virupaksha the Rakshasa brought down the armour of Sugreeva by his sword at the battle front.
vrm.6.96 Thus struck by him, Sugreeva fell down from his feet.
vrm.6.96 Getting up when fallen, Sugreeva gave him a slap, which produced a terrific sound similar to a thunder.
vrm.6.96 Setting himself free from that slap, which was about to be raised by Sugreeva skillfully, Virupaksha the Rakshasa struck Sugreeva on the chest with his fist.
vrm.6.96 Then, seeing that Rakshasa escaping his blow, Sugreeva the Vanara king for his part, very much enraged.
vrm.6.96 Then, with anger, Sugreeva brought down another violent slap on his temple bone.
vrm.6.96 Beholding that mighty Virupaksha killed by Sugreeva, the army of Vanaras and Rakshasas together looked like the agitated river of Ganga.
vrm.6.97 Some others sought refuge with Sugreeva.
vrm.6.97 Seeing the large army of Vanaras defeated in the battle, Sugreeva rushed towards Mahodara who was immediately close to him.
vrm.6.97 Seizing hold of a large and terrific rock, which looked like a mountain, Sugreeva who was endowed with a great energy, hurled it with an aim to kill the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.97 Filled with rage on seeing that rock broken and uprooting a Sala tree, Sugreeva hurled it at his enemy and Mahodara chopped it off into many pieces.
vrm.6.97 The valiant Mahodara, who was the tormentator of hostile forces, lacerated Sugreeva with his arrows.
vrm.6.97 That enraged Sugreeva then saw an iron rod on the ground.
vrm.6.97 Swinging that flashing iron rod and showing it to him, Sugreeva killed the excellent Horses of Mahodara with that iron rod of terrible speed.
vrm.6.97 Mahodara the Rakshasa was angry with Sugreeva and thereupon hurled his blazing mace, which shone like the sun, on Sugreeva.
vrm.6.97 Seeing that highly terrible mace, falling on him in that great battle, the mighty Sugreeva, the King of Vanaras, was enraged with red eyes and struck that mace, by lifting up the iron rod.
vrm.6.97 Thereupon, the spirited Sugreeva took hold of a formidable steel club, entirely decked with gold, from the earth surface.
vrm.6.97 Lifting that steel club, Sugreeva hurled it.
vrm.6.97 In the same way, the highly swift Sugreeva the foremost of Vanaras took hold of a large sword together with a shield, lying there.
vrm.6.97 That valiant and evil minded Mahodara, who was boasting of his own prowess, let fall with very high speed, that sword on the heavy shield of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.97 Even while Mahodara was extracting his sword which had got struck in the shield, Sugreeva severed with his own sword, Mahodara s head, which was adorned with ear rings and helmet.
vrm.6.97 Having killed Mahodara, Sugreeva made a rejoicing roar with his Vanaras.
vrm.6.97 Having thrown down to the ground that Mahodara, looking like a part of a huge mountain lying shattered the invincible Sugreeva shone in glory in the battle field like the sun shines with its rays.
vrm.6.97 Having attained victory in the battle front, Sugreeva then continued to be looked at by the multitude of Gods, Siddhas and Yakshas as also a host of beings standing on the earth s surface who were all overwhelmed with joy.
vrm.6.98 Seeing Mahodara killed by Sugreeva, the mighty Mahaparshva for his part with his red blood eyes through anger, forthwith stirred up the terrific army of Angada with his arrows.
vrm.6.99 "In the battle, I will cut down the tree in the shape of Rama, which is going to yield fruit through its flower in the form of Seetha, whose principal branches are Sugreeva, Jambavan, Kumuda, Nala, Dvivida, Mainda, Angada, Gandhamadana, Hanuma, Sushena and all the chiefs of Vanara warriors.
vrm.6.99 Rejoiced to see that missile struck down by Rama, who was unweary in action, all the valiant Vanaras, who were capable of changing their form at will, then encompassing Rama, raised a clamour, facing Sugreeva.
vrm.6.100 Ignoring those arrows and having embraced Lakshmana, Rama spoke to Hanuma and Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, as follows: "O the chiefs of Vanaras! Remain just encompassing Lakshmana.
vrm.6.100 "That sinful Rakshasa, for whose sake, this army of Vanaras has been brought by me, Sugreeva has been anointed on the throne after killing Vali and for whose sake the ocean has been crossed and a bridge built on it, has come within the range of my sight in the battle field now.
vrm.6.108 Having been pleased with the killing of Ravana, Rama then fulfilled the desire of Sugreeva, Angada and Vibhishana.
vrm.6.108 Rejoiced with the victory in battle, Sugreeva, Vibhishana and Angada together with Lakshmana along with their friends paid their respects with due ceremony to Rama, who looked charming.
vrm.6.111 Having destroyed the enemy, Rama too experienced happiness, along with his army as well as with Sugreeva and Lakshmana, even as Indra the wielder of thunderbolt did on destroying Vritra.
vrm.6.112 Chatting themselves about the awful destruction of Ravana, the terrific prowess of Rama, the admirable combat of the Vanaras, the counsel tendered by Sugreeva, the affection and valour of Lakshmana the son of Sumitra the loyaltyof Seetha to her husband and about the strength of Hanuma, the illustrious Devas and others rejoicingly returned as they had come.
vrm.6.112 When Matali ascended to heaven along with his chariot, Rama, the foremost one among the chariot warriors was highly rejoiced and embraced Sugreeva.
vrm.6.112 Having embraced Sugreeva greeted by Lakshmana and having been honoured by the Vanara troops.
vrm.6.112 "O Hanuma, the proficient one in speech! Inform Seetha that myself together with Lakshmana and Sugreeva are well and that Ravana had been killed in battle.
vrm.6.113 “O Seetha! Rama is well, together with Sugreeva and Lakshmana, along with Vibhishana as his supporter and collectively with the army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.113 Hearing those words of Seetha, the highly intelligent Hanuma, the son of Marut, bringing delight to Seetha, spoke the following words: “You shall see today, Rama whose countenance is like a full moon, whose friends like Sugreeva and Vibhishana are alive, whose enemies have been killed along with Lakshmana, as Shachi the consort of Indra would see Indra the lord of Gods.
vrm.6.114 Hearing the words of Rama, Lakshmana Sugreeva and Hanuma the Vanara then felt very much perturbed.
vrm.6.115 "The endeavour of Sugreeva, who exhibited his prowess on the battle field with his army and tendered a good advice, is fruitful today.
vrm.6.115 "O Seetha! Otherwise, set your mind either on Shatrughna or on Sugreeva or on Vibhishana the Rakshasa or according to your own comfort.
vrm.6.121 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Rama replied as follows: “You invite the Vanaras headed by Sugreeva for the bath.
vrm.6.122 Bestowing attention on all the Vanaras as well as Vibhishana and the mighty Sugreeva, Rama remaining in the aerial car, spoke as follows:
vrm.6.122 “O Sugreeva! All that which ought to be done by an affectionate and service minded friend, has been done for your part by you, trembling alive as you are to righteousness.
vrm.6.122 Hearing those words of the Vanaras and Vibhishana, that pious minded Rama spoke to those Vanaras, Sugreeva and Vibhishana as follows: “Something more dearer than everything dear will be achieved by me, if I reach Ayodhya with the host of my friends along with all of you, for, I shall feel delighted.
vrm.6.122 “O Sugreeva! Mount the aerial cars quickly, along with the Vanaras.
vrm.6.122 Thereupon, that Sugreeva along with the Vanaras gladly ascended that wonderful Pushpaka, the aerial car.
vrm.6.123 "O Seetha! Here is seen the beautiful City of Sugreeva, Kishkindha, which is full of colourful groves, where Vali was killed by me.
vrm.6.123 "O king! I wish to reach the capital City of Ayodhya along with you, accompanied by the wives of other Vanara chiefs with Tara and other beloved wives of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.123 Reaching Kishkindha, causing the aerial car to halt, and looking at Sugreeva, Rama spoke to him the following words:
vrm.6.123 "O the mighty Sugreeva, the King of Vanaras! You too hasten to depart, taking the wives of all the Vanaras "we shall proceed.
vrm.6.123 Hearing the words of Rama of great splendour, that illustrious Sugreeva, the lord of Vanaras accompanied by all those Vanaras, quickly entering his gynaecium, spoke to Tara as follows:
vrm.6.123 Hearing the words of Sugreeva, Tara, who was charming of every limb, called all the spouses of the Vanaras and spoke to them as follows:
vrm.6.123 "Duly permitted by Sugreeva and all the Vanaras, hurry up to proceed to Ayodhya.
vrm.6.123 "O Seetha! Here did I meet Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras and an agreement too was made by me for the killing of Vali.
vrm.6.124 "O Rama, devoted to virtue! Even the appearance of Maricha, the abduction of Seetha by Ravana, the sight of Kabandha, your arrival at the Pampa lake, your alliance with Sugreeva, how Vali was killed by you, the search operation for Seetha, the exploit of Hanuma, the tracing of Seetha, how the bridge, Nalasetu was constructed over the sea, how the City of Lanka was set fire by the rejoiced Vanara chiefs, how that Ravana who was the thorn in the side of Gods and how was arrogant of his might, was killed in battle, with his sons kinsfolk and his ministers as the Gods happened, how a boon was conferred by them on you all this is known to me by virtue of my asceticism.
vrm.6.125 “Tell him about the abduction of Seetha by the mighty Ravana, my conversation with Sugreeva and the killing of Vali in combat.
vrm.6.125 “O gentle Hanuma! Inform to Bharata, of me as having come near Ayodhya, along with Vibhishana and Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras.
vrm.6.126 Then according to the advice of Kabandha, Rama of true prowess met Sugreeva, after heading for Mount Rishyamuka.
vrm.6.126 Sugreeva had been banished in the past by the enraged Vali, his elder brother and as a result of mutual talks, affection deeply arose between Rama and Sugreeva.
vrm.6.126 "Having killed with the strength of his arms in combat, the mighty Vali with a colossal body, Rama caused the kingdom of Sugreeva restored.
vrm.6.126 Sugreeva", who was established in his kingdom with all, his Vanaras, had given his pledge to Rama, to commence a search for Seetha the princess.
vrm.6.126 Ten" crores of Vanaras were accordingly commanded by the great souled Sugreeva and sent to all the four quarters.
vrm.6.127 "In the same aerial car are the valiant Rama and Lakshmana, the brothers, along with Seetha, the immensely brilliant Sugreeva and Vibhishana the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.127 Then, Bharata embraced Sugreeva, Jambavan, Angada, Mainda, Dvivida, Neela and Rishabha.
vrm.6.127 Thereupon, the immensely brilliant Bharata, the son of Dasaratha and the foremost among the virtuous, after embracing Sugreeva the excellent Vanara, spoke to him as follows: "You are a fifth brother, for all the four of us, O Sugreeva! A friend is born of affection, while malifience is the attribute of an adversary.
vrm.6.128 Bharata, having bathed first, the mighty Lakshmana, Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras and Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas took bath.
vrm.6.128 Sugreeva and Hanuma, having splendour similar to that of Indra, after taking their bat, wore beautiful raiment as well as sparkling ear rings and started.
vrm.6.128 Endowed with all types of ornaments as well as charming ear rings, those wives of Sugreeva together with Seetha moved out, longing as they were, to see the city.
vrm.6.128 Thereupon, Sugreeva, the foremost of Vanaras, possessing a great splendor, mounted an Elephant named Shatrunjaya, looking like a mountain.
vrm.6.128 Then, Rama narrated about his friendship established with Sugreeva, the power of Hanuma and the great act of Vanaras to his ministers.
vrm.6.128 Approaching and entering the palace of the great souled father, Rama the prince offered salutation to Kausalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi and spoke the following sweet and meaningful words to Bharata, the foremost among the righteous: "Give this great palace of mine which looks excellent with Ashoka garden and consisting of pearls and cat s eye gems to Sugreeva for his stay.
vrm.6.128 Hearing those words of Rama, Bharata having a true prowess, holding Sugreeva by his hand, entered that house.
vrm.6.128 Bharata of great splendour spoke to Sugreeva as follows: "O capable person! Order the messengers to make arrangements for Rama s coronation.
vrm.6.128 Sugreeva then gave four golden jars encrusted with jewels, to four leaders of Vanaras.
vrm.6.128 The great souled Vanaras, resembling Elephants and going speedily like Eagles, thus ordered by Sugreeva, leapt quickly into the sky.
vrm.6.128 Shatrughna held over him, a white and charming Parasol Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, a white whisk and vibhishana the lord of Rakshasas, another whisk shining like the moon.
vrm.6.128 Rama gave to Sugreeva, a beautiful chaplet, studded with plenty of gems, looking like a beam of sun light.
vrm.6.128 Rama, who was unwearied in action, then suitably honoured Vibhishana, Sugreeva, Hanuma, Jambavan and all other eminent Vanaras with desired objects and abundant gifts.
vrm.6.128 Having seen Rama s coronation ceremony, Sugreeva the chief of Vanaras, after getting honoured by Rama, entered the city of Kishkindha.
