vrm.1.1 "In whom humbleness and the natural brotherly affection of a brother are abounding, such a fondly younger brother of Rama, namely Lakshmana, indeed heartily followed his forest going brother Rama, exemplifying the ideals of brotherhood, thus augmenting the happiness of his mother Sumitra.
vrm.1.16 one fourth to queen Sumitra.
vrm.1.16 one eighth portion again to queen Sumitra.
vrm.1.18 Queen Sumitra then gave birth to two sons who are the embodied epitomes of Vishnu, namely Lakshmana, and Shatrughna, who are valiant ones and experts in all kinds of weaponry.
vrm.1.18 The fair minded Bharata is born under Pisces where Pushyami is the star of day, and the so ns of Sumitra, namely Lakshmana and Shatrughna are born under Cancer, where Aasresa is the star of the day and when sun is rising.
vrm.1.18 Elapsed are eleven days and the naming ceremony is performed, then Vashishta, the chief priest, named the high souled elder one as Rama, Kaikeyi s son as Bharata, and one son of Sumitra as Lakshmana and the other as Shatrughna The king feasted Brahmans, urbanites and villagers and he gifted many
vrm.1.77 b, In palace king Dasharatha is overjoyed when he is surrounded with his own inmates of palace chambers, and when his long cherished ambitions have come true, while his queens, Kausalya, Sumitra, and slender waisted Kaikeyi and other wives are overjoyed in the functions of receiving the four brides.
vrm.1.77 b, a That valiant and best one among men Bharata on asking leave from his father, from Rama, an uncomplicatedly dextrous one in undertaking deeds, and even from his mothers, Kaikeyi, Sumitra, and Kausalya, travelled on along with Shatrughna.
vrm.2.4 Hearing the good news of the coronation ceremony of Rama, Sumitra and Lakshmana came there even before Seetha was brought.
vrm.2.4 Along with her, Sumitra, Lakshmana and Seetha were sitting nearby.
vrm.2.4 "Oh, child Rama! You live a long life! Let your enemies be destroyed! Let the cousins of mine and of Sumitra be made happy by your glory.
vrm.2.19 Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra, felt very angry with his eyes filled with tears and accompanied behind Rama.
vrm.2.31 "Oh Lakshmana! If you proceed to the forest along with me now, who will support Kausalya or the illustrious Sumitra?" "That emperor of great splendour, who used to shower blessings on the people as a cloud sends down rain on the earth, stands circumscribed by cord of love.
vrm.2.31 Bharata" on acquiring the kingdom will be devoted to Kaikeyi and will not think of sorrowful Kausalya or Sumitra.
vrm.2.31 "Oh, Rama the valiant! Bharata being inspired by your splendour of morality will respect Kausalya and Sumitra.
vrm.2.40 Immediately following his brother, Lakshmana too bowed to Kausalya, then clasped the feet of his mother Sumitra.
vrm.2.40 Smelling as a token of affection the head of Lakshmana mighty armed, who was saluting her, his mother Sumitra who wished well of him, spoke weeping, to that son of her as follows "Highly fond of your kinsman Rama, you have been permitted by me to dwell in the forestwith your eldest half brother.
vrm.2.40 Thus speaking to Lakshmana, who was in readiness to leave the forest and who loved Rama dearly, Sumitra repeatedly said to him, "fare forth, fare forth!" "Know Rama to be Dasaratha.
vrm.2.44 Sumitra, who was devoted to righteousness spoke the following words, which were virtuous, to the celebrated Kausalya, the foremost among women, who had been wailing as aforesaid That son of yours, oh the venerable one, is endowed with excellent virtues and is the foremost among men.
vrm.2.44 Sumitra the queen, skilled in her employment of words, who is faultless and charming, thus consoled Ramas mother with various words and finally stopped speaking.
vrm.2.44 Hearing those words of Sumitra the mother of Lakshmana, the agony of Kausalya Ramas mother and the wife of Dasaratha quickly disappeared in the same way as an autumnal cloud with a little water in it disappears quickly.
vrm.2.45 Rama accompanied by son of Sumitra, drew the people of the city, who were weeping piteously, after him as if tied and pulled with cords.
vrm.2.46 Getting up from the bed and seeing those citizens, Rama with an extraordinary splendor, spoke to his brother, Lakshmana who was endowed with auspicious bodily marks: Observe, Oh Lakshmana, the citizens full of longing for us, unmindful even of their homes, sleeping together at the roots of trees, Oh, the son of Sumitra! From the way in which these citizens are making coercion to take us back to Ayodhya, it seems they will even lay down their lives, but in no case would give up their resolve Till which time the citizens are asleep, within that time, let us quickly mount the chariot and take a route which has no fear from any quarter
vrm.2.52 That night having given way to dawn, the illustrious Rama with a broad chest spoke as follows to Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra and who was endowed with auspicious signs Oh, dear brother! This is the hour of sunrise.
vrm.2.52 As is your affection for Kaikeyi, so let it be for Sumitra and also the divine Kausalya, my mother If you accept the princely kingdom with an intent to please our father, it will be possible for you to enhance happiness in both the worlds in this world and the next.
vrm.2.52 Then, Rama the mighty armed, spoke to Lakshmana who heightened the joy of Sumitra as follows:
vrm.2.53 Blinded by pride of good fortune, Kaikeyi may even now persecute Kausalya and Sumitra because of their relationship with me.
vrm.2.53 Queen Sumitra is likely to suffer hardship because of her affinity to us.
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.2.54 "While I was being sent to exile by my father, my young and beloved brother Lakshmana son of Sumitra of firm vows has also followed me to the forest.
vrm.2.55 Having approached that banyan tree, Seetha spoke these words, Oh, great tree! Obeisance to you! Let my husband complete his vow! Let me see again Kausalya and the illustrious Sumitra.
vrm.2.56 Then, Lakshmana the strong man and son of Sumitra, killing a holy back antelope, tossed it in an ignited fire.
vrm.2.57 Kausalya along with Sumitra lifted up their husband, who fell on the ground.
vrm.2.64 O, mighty armed! O, Rama! O, annihilator of my grief! Alas! O, darling of your father! O, my protector! O, my son! Where have you gone? O, Kausalya! O, Sumitra, the miserable! Alas! O, Kaikeyi, the cruel one! My enemy! The disgrace of my family! I am going to die.
vrm.2.64 In this manner, King Dasaratha weeping as aforesaid, reached the end of his life in the presence of Kausalya and Sumitra.
vrm.2.65 Overpowered by grief for their sons, the slumbering Kausalya and Sumitra did not wake up, as though they were completely overtaken by death.
vrm.2.65 The queen Kausalya, immediately close to the king and with Sumitra on her side, was not shining as before with her face ruffled by tears of grief.
vrm.2.65 Kausalya and Sumitra suddenly obtained consciousness by the sound of their cries and woke up from sleep.
vrm.2.65 Kausalya and Sumitra, on seeing and touching king Dasaratha, cried O, Lord! and fell on the ground.
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.2.73 It is impossible that Kausalya and Sumitra, who are afflicted with grief for their sons, will live in fellowship with you, my mother.
vrm.2.74 Kausalya, Sumitra and my other mothers are engrossed in a great misfortune, by falling victim to you, who brought disgrace to our family.
vrm.2.75 Recognising the voice of Bharata the noble man, crying out in that manner, Kausalya spoke the following words to Sumitra: Bharata, the son of Kaikeyi, the doer terrific deeds arrived.
vrm.2.75 That kausalya who became pale with her demeanor, dirty and emaciated, speaking to Sumitra as aforesaid, became agitated and absent minded and proceeded to Bharatas place.
vrm.2.75 Otherwise, I for my own satisfaction accompanied by Sumitra, placing in front carried by Brahmana the sacred fire will happily set out to the place Raghava has gone.
vrm.2.83 Kaikeyi, Sumitra and the illustrious Kausalya rode in a resplendent chariot, delighted as they were at the thought of Ramas return.
vrm.2.86 "I do not expect whether all of them, like Kausalya Dasaratha and even my mother Sumitra will survive at all till this night.
vrm.2.89 Vasishta, the royal priest and whatever elderly Brahmanas were present there ascended the boats, even before Bharata, Shatrughna, Kausalya, Sumitra.
vrm.2.92 Kausalya, among the trembling, emaciated and the miserable women along with the Queen Sumitra clasped the feet of the sage Bharadwaja with their hands.
vrm.2.92 She, who stands clinging to the left shoulder of Kausalya, plunged in grief is the unfortunate Sumitra, looking like a branch of Karnikara tree with withered flowers standing in the interior of the grove.
vrm.2.92 Both Lakshmana and Shatrughna, the two heroic princes of god like appearance and unfailing prowess are the sons of this godly woman, Sumitra.
vrm.2.96 Seeing those animals running away and hearing that clamour, Rama spoke to Lakshmana son of Sumitra of burning courage as follows: "Alas! O, Lakshmana! Sumitra is blessed with a noble son in you.
vrm.2.97 Rama on the other hand, pacifying Lakshmana son of Sumitra, who was very much agitated and infatuated with anger, spoke the following words: "While Bharata, wieldin a bow and highly wise man himself is coming here, what is the use of a bow or sword with a shield?" "O, Lakshmana! Having promised to make our father s wish a reality.
vrm.2.100 "My darling! Are you treating respectfully as before that preceptor of the Ikshvakus, the one who knows the sacred scriptures, the one who knows the sacred scriptures, the learned who constantly keep up the virtues and he who has a great splendour?" "My darling! I hope that Kausalya and Sumitra having good offspring are happy.
vrm.2.104 With a gloomy and emaciated face, filled with tears, Kausalya spoke to Sumitra and other royal women as follows: "This is the ford, located in the eastern region of the forest, frequented by Seetha, Rama and Lakshmana, banished from the kingdom those unfortunate persons of illustrious exploits who have no country.
vrm.2.104 "O, Sumitra! Lakshmana, your son always draws water himself from here unwearyingly for the sake of my son.
vrm.3.18 Thus said by the Rakshasi that meaningful sentence maker Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra, then smiled and appropriately replied Shuurpanakha.
vrm.3.59 When Sumitra s son Lakshmana, whose traits are blamelessly auspicious is addressed thus, anguish cast a double spell on him, one for the tongue lashing of Seetha while the other for the reproach from Rama, and he replied Rama who is anguished in his own way.
vrm.3.62 Oh, efficacious Lakshmana, on revering my mothers Kaikeyi, Sumitra, and Kausalya justifiably you tell them my good bye, and you as the one who effectuates whatever is assigned to you, you have to effortfully protect my mother Kausalya by doing whatever she says.
vrm.3.66 While Rama is bewailing like a forlorn as his anguish is scorching him, rendered impoverished with an inanimate heart as a high passion possessed him, Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra, suppliantly gripped his feet and started to address him.
vrm.4.25 Speaking thus to Sugreeva that enhancer of his mother Sumitra s delight and the eliminator of braving foes, Lakshmana stepped off and stayed behind his brother Rama.
vrm.4.35 Tara with her visage that shines like the Lord of Stars, namely the Moon, then spoke to the son of queen Sumitra, namely Lakshmana, who while he is speaking is as though blazing with his own resplendence.
vrm.5.13 Thereafter seeing sons to be dead the mothers Kausalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi will not exist there is no doubt.
vrm.5.25 Seetha being tormented by grief said "Oh! Rama!" and again "Oh! Lakshmana!","Oh! Kausalya!, my mother in law" "Oh! Sumitra!" "I thus being tormented by cruel Rakshasa women here lacking Rama, being tormented by grief, when I am living even for a moment, death at wrong time to woman or to a man is hard thus being said this popular saying in the world is true.
vrm.5.28 O Rama, O Lakshmana, O Sumitra, O Kausalya! O mother! I, of a scanty fortune, am going to be destroyed, like a ship driven out of its course by a strong wind in a mighty ocean.
vrm.5.34 "That long armed Lakshmana too, having a great splendour and who augments the happiness of Sumitra his mother, saluted you and enquired about your welfare.
vrm.5.36 Rama the righteous man who is true to his promise and Lakshmana of great splendour who enriches the joy of Sumitra are fortunately safe.
vrm.5.36 Is Rama, who is habituated always to pleasures and not habituated to pains, not sinking into despondency by now getting this great pain? Are you constantly hearing the news of safety of Kausalya, Sumitra and Bharata?
vrm.5.36 Lakshmana, the strong man, who augments the joy of Sumitra and who is an expert in weaponry, will indeed destroy the Rakshasas by the multitude of his arrows.
vrm.5.38 On my behalf, ask about the welfare of Lakshmana, that good child of Sumitra who, having renounced the wreaths of flowers, all the riches, pleasant and beautiful girls and even the prosperity difficult to be obtained in this extensive world, offered his profound respects to and pacified his father and mother, followed Rama to exile.
vrm.6.49 "If Lakshmana returned to the five elements, he the increaser of Sumitra s joy, I will yield up my life breaths while the Vanaras stand looking on.
vrm.6.49 "What shall I say to my mother, Kausalya or to Kaikeyi? How can I talk to my mother Sumitra, sighing for the sight of her son?" "How shall I console Sumitra, trembling and crying out like an osprey, bereft of her son, if I return to Ayodhya without lakshmana?"
vrm.6.49 "How shall I tell Shatrughna and the illustrious Bharata when I return without Lakshmana, who followed to the forest along with me?" "Alas! I should not be able to endure Sumitra s reproaches.
vrm.6.67 Immediately, Lakshmana the son of Sumitra, the annihilator of the foe s army and conqueror of the cities of adversaries, commenced the battle with a rage.
vrm.6.71 Free from flurry, that Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra, released those arrows, exactly aiming at that Rakshasa, for the purpose of killing him.
vrm.6.101 "Of what use is the kingdom for me, without Lakshmana, who was difficult to over power? What can I tell to Sumitra, the mother who was so fond of her son?" "I shall not be able to bear the reproach, which will be levelled by Sumitra.
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 Then, Rama spoke as follows to Lakshmana, son of Sumitra, who was endowed with strength and having auspicious marks, who stayed nearby.
vrm.6.119 "Fortunately has the fear born of Ravana which increased the severe darkness on the entire world has been removed by you, on the battle field, O Rama!" "You are fit to go to the heaven, by comforting the depressed Bharata and the illustrious Kausalya as well as seeing Kaikeyi and Sumitra, the mother of Lakshmana having got the sovereignty of Ayodhya, bringing delight to your friends, stabilizing the back bone in the race of Ikshvaku, getting excellent glory by performing a Horse sacrifice and by granting riches to Brahmanas.
vrm.6.119 Happiness" to you, O the augmentor of the joy of Sumitra, your mother! Serve Rama well.
vrm.6.121 My heart is hastening to see that Bharata, who came all the way to Mount Chitrakuta to take me back to Ayodhya, yet whose appeal was not executed by me, even though he requested me with his head bent low and Kausalya my mother as also Sumitra and the illustrious Kaikeyi my step mothers as also Guha my friend, as well as the citizens of Ayodhya and the inhabitants of the country side.
vrm.6.127 Then, all the wives of the deceased Dasaratha, placing Kausalya and Sumitra in front of them, mounting their vehicles, issued forth.
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 Even as Kausalya, the mother has Rama as her living son, or as Sumitra has Lakshmana or as Kaikeyi has Bharata, the women likewise can become mothers of living sons, endowed with children as well as grand children and thus become happy forever.
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.7.58 O son of Sumitra, the affliction of residing in the forest appeared to me as pleasure ere this for I knew that I would be able to serve Rama s feet.
vrm.7.62 The intelligent Lakshmana, the son of Sumitra, having said this, Rama, the descendant of Kakutstha and fond of friends, with great delight said "Thou hast spoken the truth, O Lakshmana, O foremost of men.
vrm.7.63 O gentle son of Sumitra, for not looking to state business for these four days I have been pierced to the very vitals.
vrm.7.76 And Kausalya and Sumitra and Kaikeyi and the other wives of the king set up festal salutation in the palace.
vrm.7.77 Having thus ordered the powerful warriors the highly powerful Satrughna bowed unto Kausalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi.
vrm.7.98 Hearing the words of Raghava, Lakshmana, the enhancer of Sumitra s delight, again took up that theme.
vrm.7.115 Sumitra s son Lakshmana went with Angada and Bharata accompanied Chandraketu.
