vrm.1.1 "Then Sugreeva s heart is gladdened by that act of Rama and also at the prospect of his own success, and then that great Vanara confiding in Rama advanced to the cave like Kishkindha along with Rama.
vrm.1.1 "Then that best Vanara Sugreeva whose body hue is golden war whooped at the entrance of cave like Kishkindha, by which loud shouting there emerged Vali, the king of Vanaras, out of that cave like Kishkindha.
vrm.1.1 After an audience with Ravana Hanuma burnt that city Lanka, except where Seetha, the princess of Mithila is stationed, and then to narrate the pleasant news of locating Seetha, he again got back to Rama, for he is a great Vanara.
vrm.1.3 Also thus Vali s elimination and establishing Sugreeva on throne of Vanara kingdom, grieving of Tara, the wife of Vali and empress of that kingdom, and as consented Rama s stopover during the days of rain.
vrm.1.3 The wrath of Raghava, the Lion, at the delay caused by Sugreeva, and Sugreeva s foregathering of all troops, and sending them to all quarters, and Sugreeva s description of earth s topography to Vanara troops.
vrm.1.17 Let Vanara shaped progeny equalling Vishnu s valour be procreated from the physiques of prominent Apsara s and Gandharva s, from the girls of Yaksha s and pannaga s, and also thus from the bodies of Kinnaraa s, she Vidyadhara s, she riksha s and she Vanaras, and they shall be wizards of miracles and audacious ones, in travel they shall have air s speed, bestowed with intellect they shall be the knowers of ideation, and with their divine physique they shall be ineliminable, they shall be endowed with all the assaultive aspects of all missiles, and they shall be untiring in their efforts, like you
vrm.1.17 Brihaspati, the Jupiter, gave rise to a great Vanara named Tara, who is the most important one among all vanara s, and who excels all by his intelligence.
vrm.1.17 The brilliant Gandhamadana is the son of Kubera, while the divine architect Vishvakarma procreated the great Vanara called Nala.
vrm.1.17 The direct son of Vayu is the marvellous and adventurous Hanuma with an indestructible body, and one identical in the speed of lady Vinata s son, namely Garuda, the divine eagle vehicle of Vishnu, and among all Vanara chiefs he is the intelligent and the indefatigable one too.
vrm.1.17 b, a Those that are procreated have attained the shape, getup and valour of the god that has fathered them, and thus the Vanara race is procreated separately and individually.
vrm.1.17 Some of the Vanara s endowed with superior valour are born to female Golangulas, and like that some more to female Rikshas and Kinnara s.
vrm.1.17 b, a Several of the Devas, great Sages, Gandharva s, Taarkshya s, Yaksha s, and the celebrated Uraga s, Kimpusha s, Siddha s, Vidyadhara s, Uraga s and Caarana s and even the prominent maidens of Apsara s, she Vidyadhara s, Naga, Gandharva s then gladly procreated all of the thousands of forest ranging and valiant Vanara sons from their bodies that are forest rangers.
vrm.1.17 b, a All of the Vanaras stood by the brothers, namely the son of Indra Vali, and the son of sun Sugreeva, and even with the Vanara generals like Nala, Neela and Hanuma et
vrm.1.17 The earth is thus suffused with those mighty army generals of Vanara race whose physiques resembled the clusters of clouds and peaks of mountains, and who have emerged for the reason of helping Rama.
vrm.2.78 Studded with bright coloured girdle bands and many other excellent ornaments, Manthara appeared like a female Vanara tied with ropes!
vrm.3.54 That broad eyed and curvaceous lady with resentment Seetha, inwrapping her auspicious ornaments in the upper fringe of her sari, dropped in the midmost of those five Vanara s with a thinking that these creatures may perhaps indicate them to Rama.
vrm.3.54 Those ochreish eyed best Vanara s with their unwinking eyes have observed the broad eyed Seetha, who at that time is verily wailing.
vrm.3.72 b, a Oh, Raghava, right away and candidly you make that Vanara Sugreeva, a wanderer in the forest, sheltering himself on Mountain Rishyamuka, as a friend of yours taking an oath on your weapon besides the Fire witness.
vrm.3.72 With his expertise that straightforward Vanara Sugreeva is indeed conversant with all of the strongholds of anthropophagite Rakshasas in the world in their entirety.
vrm.3.73 "Oh, best one among men Rama, at Pampa you will see best shaped Vanara s who have their bunk bed in mountain caves, and who will be coming nearby the lake, greedy as they are for water, and those forest movers will be moving about in evening time of the day, bellowing like bulls.
vrm.3.73 b, a Sugreeva" dwells in that cave along with four other Vanaras, and at times he will be available on the peaks of that mountain, even on its bluffs and cliffs, for he is a terrified Vanara.
vrm.3.75 b, a A noble soul by his name Riksharaja was there and that Vanara s
vrm.4.1 He who is the chief of Vanara s, who moves about Mountain Rishyamuka, while he is meandering thereabout he happened to see those two who are so amazing for a look, namely Rama and Lakshmana, by which he is so frightened that he is petrified.
vrm.4.2 Distressed at heart that foremost Vanara gazed blankly in all directions and he did not remain at any one place.
vrm.4.2 On seeing those two great mighty ones that Vanara has not even made up his mind steadfast as he is very much frightened, and his heart is really sunken.
vrm.4.2 Then the group leaders of Vanaras quickly arrived as they fled, at that lofty Vanara group leader Sugreeva, the chieftain of Vanaras, gathering around him there
vrm.4.2 By whom you are bewildered at heart and running away, oh, the best Vanara Sugreeva, I do not see that cruel looking, cruel Vali here.
vrm.4.2 Aha! You made a Monkey of yourself, oh, Vanara, and you feel small, thus you are not able to stay firm in your mind by that fickleness, and your Monkey like character is clear by it.
vrm.4.2 Begone to them oh, Vanara Hanuma, in a commoner’s form, for your Vanara hood is distinguishable by Vali s agents, and know the intentions of those two by their conduct, by their semblance, and by their conversation, as well.
vrm.4.2 That marvellous Vanara Hanuma agreeing for the words of that inaccessible and very much frightened Sugreeva, and on respectfully replying him saying that, ‘I will do accordingly.
vrm.4.3 Casting off his Vanara s semblance Vayu s son Hanuma attained the persona of an ascetic, for that Vanara is incredulous in mind about Raghava s.
vrm.4.3 Then on nearing Raghava s that Hanuma voicing softly and well pleasingly like an obedient one, that best Vanara befittingly hailed, greeted and praised those two valiant ones.
vrm.4.3 The best Vanara Hanuma spoke soft wordily, as desired by Sugreeva, to those candidly resolute ones, on making reverent obeisance to both of them.
vrm.4.3 Delegated by that great soul and the king of important Vanaras Sugreeva, I have come here and by name I am Hanuma, another Vanara.
vrm.4.3 He that righteous Sugreeva is desiring friendship with you two, and know me as a Vanara and his minister, the son of Vayu.
vrm.4.3 When said thus by Rama, wise worded Lakshmana spoke to that Vanara and the minister of Sugreeva, namely Hanuma, the son of Vayu, who is equally a wise worded one.
vrm.4.3 The virtues of that great soul Sugreeva are known to us, oh, scholarly Vanara, we for our part are in search of that lord of fly jumpers Sugreeva alone.
vrm.4.3 On observing that operative sentence of Lakshmana the Vanara Hanuma is gladdened, as seen from his composure, and kept his mind at ease at the prospective victory, and then he wished to materialise the pact of friendship between Rama and Sugreeva, at the earliest.
vrm.4.4 He that son of Surya, Sugreeva, will render help to you two, joining forces of our like Vanara s in searching Seetha.
vrm.4.4 Raghava, as to how this Vanara seems to be happy in meeting us, by way of his narration, and he too neared us as an aspirant of some deed to be performed by us, hence joining them seems to fulfil your mission.
vrm.4.4 On discarding the ascetic s semblance that estimable Vanara Hanuma obtained his own Vanara s form, and mounting those two valiant ones onto his back he proceeded towards Sugreeva.
vrm.4.5 "Therefor oh, lord, you wish to make friendship with a Vanara like me, thereby this is an honour and a best achievement to me alone.
vrm.4.5 a Then the destroyer of enemies Hanuma discarding the guise of ascetic assumed his original Vanara form, and on producing fire with two sticks then made it to glow.
vrm.4.5 a And then gladdened at heart are those two, that Vanara and Raghava, gazed enough at each other eye to eye, but their hearts did not derive any fraternal satisfaction.
vrm.4.5 oh, great Vanara I intend eliminate that Vali, the abductor of your wife.
vrm.4.6 saying thus that Vanara started to show them to Rama.
vrm.4.7 Thus said by Rama in agony that Vanara Sugreeva with his palms adjoined, and with tears rolling in eyes and also voice trembling with tears said this to Rama.
vrm.4.7 "Though I am a primitive Vanara I am not totally disheartened for the distancing of wife, why tell about a great soul like you who are well read and courageous.
vrm.4.7 "What that is spoken by me is in my self confidence but not in any self conceit, oh, tigerly Vanara, deem them as doubtless facts.
vrm.4.7 Then on hearing the words of Rama Sugreeva along with his Vanara ministers is gladdened, especially of Rama promise.
vrm.4.7 Then those two, the man and the Vanara, met in privacy and both discussed in a mutually befitting manner about their pleasures and pains.
vrm.4.7 On hearing the word of that intellectual, highly capable one and the best king among kings, namely Rama, he that Sugreeva, the chief among the Vanara heroes, thought at heart that his manoeuvre to surpass his dominant brother Vali is accomplished.
vrm.4.8 On hearing Raghava s words, the lord of Vanara force Sugreeva attained much happiness and said, good, good.
vrm.4.8 "On knowing the cause of your enmity, oh, Vanara, and after a proper thought, and deciding upon the strength and weakness of the cause of enmity, or of the enmity itself, I will do the needful very easily.
vrm.4.10 "On saying thus that Vanara ruthlessly banished me, then and there in the court itself, who am with a single clothing on my body.
vrm.4.11 "Otherwise I bear up my rage for this night, oh, Vanara, you may unrestrainedly delight yourself till morning in your voluptuous gratifications, for you are now surrounded by your ladies.
vrm.4.11 "Then that elephentine Vanara Vali took that mountain similar Dundubhi by horns, and booming highly he whirled and bumped him onto ground.
vrm.4.11 "While each is assaulting the other in that fight between that Vanara and Rakshasa, that Rakshasa is impaired and Indra s son Vali toughened.
vrm.4.11 "On knowing by his ascetic power that this deed is done by the Vanara, he released a great curse on him who tossed the cadaver of Buffalo.
vrm.4.11 "And today is the day of limit and the Vanara whom I will see tomorrow, he will be petrified for many thousand years to come.
vrm.4.11 "Then, dreaded by the fear of curse that Vanara Vali does not aspire to enter the great mountain Rishyamuka, oh, people s lord, Rama, or he does not even wish to look at it.
vrm.4.11 Vali" is a mighty Vanara, an intrepid one, who esteems his own intrepidity, and one who is well renowned by his might and tenacity, and in combats he is an undefeated one.
vrm.4.11 On hearing that word of great souled Sugreeva, Rama smilingly replied that Vanara in his turn.
vrm.4.11 "If you are unable to confide in the intrepidity of ours, oh, Vanara, I shall ingrain commendable confidence in you with respect to our action.
vrm.4.12 On seeing them the seven sala trees that are profoundly fissured, that best Vanara Sugreeva went into a stunning astonishment at the rapidity of Rama s arrow.
vrm.4.12 Raghava also came to that forest, along with his brother Lakshmana and along with Hanuma, where that Vanara Sugreeva fled.
vrm.4.12 "By your voice, bodily glow also thus in your looking, also in bravery and in speech, oh Vanara, I could not mark any difference.
vrm.4.12 "Thereby, oh, great Vanara, I have not released this great speeded and enemy annihilating arrow of mine as I was confused in the similarity of your personalities.
vrm.4.12 a "Therefore, oh, Vanara, again you fight with him without doubting me, and I will render him ineffective at this moment only with a single arrow of mine, and you can see Vali squirming on the ground.
vrm.4.13 The brave Hanuma, dauntless Nala and Neela, and the captain of Vanara s captains Tara of great energy followed them rearward.
vrm.4.14 b, a Oh Vanara, today itself I will set you free from the fear and enmity whipped up by Vali by releasing a single arrow in fight.
vrm.4.14 b, a You show me your enemy in a brother s mien, oh, Vanara, by then he will be rolling in the dust of this forest eliminated by me.
vrm.4.14 make such a war cry by which that Vanara Vali comes out.
vrm.4.15 That Vanara Vali then on hearing that intolerable noise bolted out of palace chambers thumping his feet as though to shatter the earth.
vrm.4.15 "Oh, Vanara, you can fight with him in early hours of tomorrow, oh, brave one, evidently you neither have divers enemies nor your valour is trivialised.
vrm.4.17 That superb and gem studded golden pendent given by Indra sustained that Vanara chief s lives, resplendence and brilliance.
vrm.4.18 Then to him who is rendered like a lusterless sun, fizzling out like a cloud that released its water, and who became like a quenched fire, to such a best Vanara and an unexcelled lord of Vanaras who has just now imputed Rama with words that are abounding with righteousness and meaningfulness, Rama spoke subsequently.
vrm.4.18 b, a "As for us, oh, Vanara s lord, we effectuate our brother s orders and our duty, and we stand for curbing your kind of shatterers of ethics.
vrm.4.18 "I have neither angst nor ire in this matter of my eliminating you, or, your reviling me, oh, best Vanara, but listen to the other point I wish to make clear.
vrm.4.18 "Let distress, desire and even dread that abide in your heart be discarded, oh, Vanara s supreme, you cannot possibly transcend destiny.
vrm.4.19 Tara, wife of Vali, heard that the tigerly Vanara Vali perished in fight by the arrow released by Rama.
vrm.4.19 "Oh! Vanara s, what for you are running away in utter fright and desperation, leaving off your best king to whom all of you are ushers?" Thus Tara enquired with the Vanaras.
vrm.4.19 On hearing the words of Vanara s wife those guise changing Vanaras spoke this sentence coherently to lady Tara, befitting to present time of chaos.
vrm.4.19 "Of what avail is a son, or a kingdom, or I to myself when my husband that lion like Vanara with great honour perished.
vrm.4.20 "Arise, oh, tigerly Vanara, you have to make use of a best bed as best kings will not on repose on soil in this way, isn t it.
vrm.4.20 "I am she who said a beneficial word to you with an interest in your well being and wishing your welfare, but oh, best Vanara, you unmindfully brushed me off.
vrm.4.21 "Who am I either for conducting the Vanaras kingdom or to anoint Angada when Angada s paternal uncle Sugreeva is close at hand? Hanuma", this thinking of yours that Angada is to be crowned is really untenable, oh, best Vanara, father is the real defender of a son, but not the mother.
vrm.4.22 om þanti× þanti× þanti× Then, all those best Vanaras avaialble there have started to weep when their Vanara chief is dead, and for that matter they have loudly squawked at his death in this way.
vrm.4.23 Then that renowned Tara closely whiffed that face of Vanara s king Vali and spoke these words to her dead husband.
vrm.4.23 Then the Vanara chief Nila extricated that arrow which is stuck in the chest of Vali, as with the extraction of a firmly wedged sparkling snake from the cavity of a mound.
vrm.4.24 "I think it would be better for me to live on that best mountain Rishyamuka for ever in an as is where is condition, somehow spending life befitting to a Vanara, and achieving even heaven on killing my brother is of no good.
vrm.4.24 Fraternity", dignity and also probity are conserved by him, while I exhibited furiousness, enviousness and also naughtiness of a Vanara.
vrm.4.24 Earth", waters, trees and women took the burden of Indra s sins, but who in name will bear the burden of this sin of mine, that too the sin of a Vanara, who wishes to share?
vrm.4.24 "I think this body of great might Vanara commanders is withstanding its lives in a halfway, oh, Raghava, just because of me and this Angada who is searing in anguish, for it is half dead with the death of Vali.
vrm.4.24 The prominent Vanara ministers then started to raise her up, whose eyes are pleasant and intellect unfailing, and who had the lion among Vanaras as her husband, but now collapsed on ground hugging her departed husband.
vrm.4.24 "Anguished and unprotected, such as I am, oh, king, I am being distracted from my departed husband by these Vanara misters, and it is unapt of you to not to kill me, as I am incapable to live without him, whose sprightly gait is like that of an Elephant, a best one among fly jumping Vanara s, a courageous one, and who wears a precious and exquisite golden pendant.
vrm.4.25 "Let suitable, proficient and sturdy Vanara s be at the ready as the bearers of the litter of the dead to carry away Vali.
vrm.4.25 Tara came back in a trice fetching that litter of the dead, getting it carried by gritty and suitable Vanara s.
vrm.4.25 "In which way the grandiose of monarchical opulence will be conspicuous on earth when kings decease, in a similar way the Vanara s have to immortalise lord Vali now," Sugreeva ordered Vanaras in that way.
vrm.4.25 b, a Lady Tara and all other female Vanara s, whose husband is dead, followed the funeral procession wailing in a pathetic tone.
vrm.4.25 b, a With the din of wailing of those Vanara females in the interiors of the forest, that forest along with its hillocks appeared to be wailing noisily.
vrm.4.25 Many Vanara s have arranged a funeral pile on an unpopulated sandy isle, around which brooks from the cascades of hills are encircling.
vrm.4.25 While Tara is enwrapped in the grief for her husband and wailing that way, then other female Vanara s, who are equally haggard by grief have lifted her up and took her away from the body of Vali.
vrm.4.26 b, "He would like to honour you in a remarkable way with garlands and precious gems, hence it will be apt of you to enter this delightful mountain cave, namely Kishkindha, and you may kindly consolidate the congenial affinity between the governor and the governed for the very high exhilaration of Vanara s.
vrm.4.26 b, a "As and when the best one among Vanara s valorous Sugreeva enters the highly flourishing and statuesquely Kishkindha, he shall be enthroned in the kingdom, immediately and procedurally.
vrm.4.26 All the inmates and ministers in Kishkindha then revered the lord of Vanara throngs Sugreeva with their head bent, and they have also prostrated before him with an assiduously polite attitude.
vrm.4.26 b, They the Vanara s have then started to anoint that best Vanara Sugreeva according to the tradition, having appeased the eminent Brahmans with jewels, garments and delicacies.
vrm.4.26 Then, Vanara s like Gaja, Gavaksha, Gavaya, Sharabha, Gandhamadana, Mainda, Dvivida, also thus Hanuma, Jambavanta have started pouring pure water on Sugreeva, which the best vanara s have collected from the rivers flowing to east, as well as to west, from each of the sacred declivity of rivers, from every ocean, and stored in golden flasks.
vrm.4.27 "It is definite that the best Vanara Sugreeva must be surrounded by his friends, thus he must be exuberant, as he won an utmost prosperity in winning back his wife and winning the kingdom.
vrm.4.28 then I desired not to insist on that Vanara.
vrm.4.29 And the noble minded Sugreeva directed Nila, one of the commanders of vanara army, and who always strives to foregather vanara army, to foregather all of the Vanara forces available in all the directions.
vrm.4.29 "And, the Vanara who arrives here after fifteen nights, to him termination of life is the punishment, there is no business for further adjudication.
vrm.4.29 Thus, Sugreeva, the king of best Vanaras on assigning the set up, and ordering Niila, the Commander of Vanara Forces, that glorious Sugreeva re entered his palace chambers.
vrm.4.30 "By these reasons, oh gentle Lakshmana, I am perhaps scoffed off by the spiteful king of Vanara s Sugreeva oh, the enemy blazer, Lakshmana.
vrm.4.30 On clearly examining his elder brother Rama, who has become ruthlessly uncompassionate and pitiably prating, the mood of that intensively resplendent Lakshmana, who is an augmenter of Manu s dynasty, has become hostile towards the Vanara king Sugreeva.
vrm.4.31 That right minded and well informed Lakshmana who is bent on doing only that which is agreeable and beneficial to his elder brother, then swallowing his exasperation and wielding a bow which is shining forth like the bow of Indra, and which is standing out like a peaking mountain proceeded towards the palace of the Vanara, namely Sugreeva, and with such a bow he appeared to be the peaking Mountain Mandhara and like the Era Ender.
vrm.4.31 While his lips are quivering owing to rancour towards Sugreeva, Lakshmana saw formidable Vanara s at the outposts of Kishkindha.
vrm.4.31 At that time, he who is in a lustful mood, who is in the company of Lady Tara and who is enmired in privacy, that foremost Vanara Sugreeva is unheedful of the words of those bold Vanaras who brought the message.
vrm.4.32 While Sugreeva is saying that way, the eminent Vanara Hanuma spoke with a dint of his own expediency, from among the Vanara ministers.
vrm.4.32 "In any case, it is not astonishing to say, oh, king of Vanara troops, that you with a deep regard have not forgotten the advantageous help rendered to you, since it is natural for you.
vrm.4.32 "Because the time for campaigns has chanced, oh, the ablest Vanara, and because you were very slumberous you have not got the drift of it, as such Lakshmana must have come here, and it is obvious.
vrm.4.33 All right! If a man were to be voluptuary he will be inadvertent of place and time, isn t it! Then, how about ethicalities, or rights and wrongs? "He who shunned decency because of the vehemence of randiness, oh, the eradicator of braving enemies, and he who is delighting in lust is consorted with me, ergo condone your brother like Sugreeva, the protector of Vanara dynasty.
vrm.4.33 "Esteemed sages who take delight in their holy merit and pious asceticism, they themselves will be closely following the course of their desire fulfilment when entangled in lust, then how about this one, namely Sugreeva, being an impulsive Vanara, besides being a king, how he cannot wallow in enjoyments.
vrm.4.33 "By all means, marvellously intrepid Vanara s that are the residents of various mountains and that can change gusie just by their wish have come in hundreds, in thousands, in millions.
vrm.4.34 "Oh, Vanara, firstly you have got your purpose fulfilled and by that reason you are not reciprocating help to Rama, thereby you are an uncultured and unfriendly one, and illusive is your word of honour.
vrm.4.34 "Oh, Vanara, you achieved your means through Rama, and Rama is wishing for his endeavour through you, and I wonder whether the search for Seetha is not your duty? "An illusive promisor basking in churlish pleasures, such as you are, Rama has not realised that you are a serpent with the croaking of a frog.
vrm.4.35 "Although he is a Vanara this Sugreeva has not dismissed from his mind even the favour Rama has done in his respect, oh, valiant Lakshmana, which in combat is impractical for others.
vrm.4.35 "Determined to achieve the objective of Raghava this king of Vanaras Sugreeva has not bestirred himself while awaiting the return of those venturesome and very great mighty Vanara warriors who are sent out.
vrm.4.36 And when Lakshmana conceded to that argument of Tara, Sugreeva, the king of Vanara troops, got rid of his highly intense scare of Lakshmana, like the riddance of a dampened cloth.
vrm.4.36 Even though one has capability to know his own lapse and speak it up, oh, ablest among Vanara s, who is he that behoves outspokenly, excepting my elder brother and you.
vrm.4.37 "Convoke the Vanara s available on the summits of these five mountains, namely Mountain Mahendra, Mountain Himalaya, Mountain Vindhya, and Mountain Kailasa and those that are on the whitish peak of Mountain Mandara.
vrm.4.37 And the catastrophic Vanara chiefs that are abiding in the palm groves of Mountain Padma.
vrm.4.37 "In the first instance highly speedy vanara s are hastened at my commanded, however, you hasten some more Vanara chiefs for the purpose of hastening them.
vrm.4.37 "Those that are entangled with creature comforts, and those that are stringy dawdlers, you quickly lead all of those Vanara chiefs in here.
vrm.4.37 On hearing that command of the king of kings of Vanara s, Sugreeva, who is semblable with the Death god and Time god, all of the Vanaras have arrived with the terror of Sugreeva haunting them.
vrm.4.37 Vanara s who are in the hue of lion s mane have turned up in thousand crores, say hundred billion, from the pinnacles of Mountain Kailasa.
vrm.4.37 Millions and millions of Vanara s whose looks and deeds are gruesome, and who equal the planet Mars in their crimson flush, as they dwell on the hotbeds of Mountain Vindhya, have swiftly alighted from Mountain Vindhya.
vrm.4.37 The Vanara s who went from Kishkindha to hasten up all the other Vanaras of all quarters, those champions have reached Himalayan Mountains and saw exceptional trees on them.
vrm.4.37 "We have rounded up all the mountains, rivers, and forests even, and all of the Vanara s available on earth are fetched to your fore according to your command.
vrm.4.38 On receiving all those gifts brought in by the Vanara s from Himalayas, Sugreeva dispersed them all with approbation.
vrm.4.38 Sugreeva shouted sharply saying, "come here," at the best Vanara adjutants and on hearing his call all of those Vanaras that are spared to see the ladies of palace chambers have come there swiftly with their palms adjoined in supplication.
vrm.4.38 b, a Saying so Sugreeva got into that golden carriage which in shine is like the sun and which has many Vanara carriers along with Lakshmana.
vrm.4.38 b, a Rama became exultant of Sugreeva on seeing the massive army of Vanara s which is just like a vast lake plethoric with buds of lotuses.
vrm.4.38 b, a "Oh, enemy eliminator, time for endeavour has come, oh, king of Vanaras, let this be discussed along with your Vanara ministers.
vrm.4.38 Oh, enemy flamer Rama, the legions of Vanaras along with their Vanara commanders who are viable to Mahendra in valour, and who compare with massive clouds and mountains, and who domiciled on Mountain Meru and Mountain Vindhya will be coming in your service.
vrm.4.39 In a split second the entire ground is then enshrouded with incalculable fly jumpers whose size is mountainous, fangs excruciating, and might abnormal, and each Vanara commander is surrounded with hundreds of millions of legions of Vanaras, who by their wish can change of their guise, and these Vanaras of amazing strength have come crashing war whoops as clouds letting out thunders while they are on their way from their habitation like riversides, seashores, mountains, and some other Vanaras have come from forests as they are forest dwellers, and in the vast of masses their complexion alone remained as an identity to their habitation, like the stripe of tender sun of some Vanaras is marking them from the place of rising sun, moon white body colour of some more telling that they are from the place of nightly moon, and the colour of skin looking like lotus fibrils of many more indicates that they are from fertile watery lands, and the snow white complexion of yet some more indicates that the dwelling place of those Vanaras is Mountain Meru.
vrm.4.39 Indrajanu, the brave Vanara commander who is the chief of eleven crores of Vanaras has appeared then encompassed by selfsame vanara troopers.
vrm.4.39 Then Sugreeva, the knower of rectitude, promptly informed about all of those paramount Vanaras to Rama as to who is who, and staying with folded palms he addressed the forgathered Vanara chiefs.
vrm.4.41 Sugreeva, the well informed and brave lord of Vanara troops, then beckoned Angada and the other prominent vanara s who are valorous ones with full fledged dash and dare, like the son of Agni Neela, and the exceptional vanara Hanuma, the highly vigorous son of Grandparent Brahma, namely Jambavanta, also others like Suhotra, Sharaari, Sharagulma Gaja, Gavaksha, Gavaya, Sushena, Vrishabha, Mainda, Dvivida, Sushena, Gandhamadana, and the two sons of Ritual fire called Ulkaamukha, Ananga.
vrm.4.42 Sugreeva ordered the superb Vanara son of great sage Maricha, called Arcishman, to western direction, who is a surrounded with exceptional and braving Vanaras, a coequal to Indra in his resplendence, endowed with brilliance and bravery and whose speed equals that of the son of Vinata, namely Garuda, the Eagle vehicle of Vishnu.
vrm.4.42 In the event of your following just Vanara hood and its antics, without becoming adventuresome, there will be no scare from those Gandharva s.
vrm.4.43 On sending his father in law, namely Susheshana, to westerly direction then the king of Vanara s Sugreeva, spoke to a valorous vanara named Shatabali.
vrm.4.44 "Oh, foremost Vanara, Hanuma, I do not foresee any impediment in your transit on land where homogenous enemies will usually obstruct one another, or in high skies where there is no foothold, thus only Birds and clouds hover there, or in the wild blue yonder where celestial bodies alone gravitate at random, nor in waters where there is no underwater movement for earthly beings, nor in the heaven, the abodes of immortals, where those immortals will not allow mortals like us to meander as we like.
vrm.4.44 "By this emblematic ring, oh, best Vanara, Janaka s daughter Seetha identifies you to have reached her from my proximity, without apprehension.
vrm.4.44 On taking the ring that foremost Vanara Hanuma kept it on his own head, and making palm fold he reverenced the feet of Rama, and then that noteworthy Vanara started off.
vrm.4.44 That brave Vanara son of Vayu leapt to sky along with that massive force of Vanaras as if he is hauling them up, and he who is brightened by Vanaras around him on the skyscape appeared like the moon in a very clear lunar sphere on a cloudless sky brightened by clusters of stars around.
vrm.4.44 "Oh, highly powerful Hanuma, I rely upon your vivacity, being the best venturesome Vanara, oh, son of Vayu, showing your adventures that are not inconsequential you make happen as to how access can be gained to Janaka s daughter, Seetha.
vrm.4.45 Then the brave Vanara Shatabali swiftly started towards the beautiful northern quarter that is encompassed by the king of mountains, namely Himavanta.
vrm.4.45 b, a The Vanara troop commander Vinata journeyed towards the eastern direction, and the fly jumper, leader of Vanaras and Vayu s son Hanuma travelled towards southerly quarter that is once trodden by Sage Agastya, along with Lt.
vrm.4.45 b, The commander of fly jumpers and a tigerly Vanara Sushena started out towards the horrifying western direction that is ruled by Varuna.
vrm.4.45 Then on disposing the commanders of Vanara army to all directions according to their capabilities, that valorous king Sugreeva who is contented earlier by way of gaining his kingdom through Rama, is now gladdened to his heart s content for sending Vanara troops to all directions as a requital to Rama s help.
vrm.4.45 Another Vanara soldier said so.
vrm.4.45 "I alone will bring back Janaki even from netherworlds, who might be shivering owing to enervation, and you my Vanara soldier colleagues, you all may stay behind now.
vrm.4.45 Thus another Vanara hero said.
vrm.4.45 Thus another Vanara gave war cry.
vrm.4.45 "I can fly jump a hundred Yojana s, undoubtedly," said one Vanara while the other said, "I can jump even more than a hundred Yojana s, for sure.
vrm.4.45 This is the slogan of another Vanara warrior.
vrm.4.46 When the chiefs of Vanara troops are on their way Rama spoke to Sugreeva, "Indeed, how do you know very well about the globe of earth in its entirety?" Then Sugreeva bowing down before Rama said, "I will narrate all vividly, and let my words be heard.
vrm.4.47 All the Vanara commanders explicitly commanded by Sugreeva, very carefully searched all the provinces inclusive of their mountains, woodlands, and thick forests.
vrm.4.47 All the Vanara s firmed up in finding Seetha have searched nooks and corners of earth by day, and at nighttimes they used to coming together onto earth at scheduled places.
vrm.4.47 In all those days those Vanara s used to come to trees which have fruits of all seasons to make those trees as their beds at bedtime.
vrm.4.47 Even the valiant and matchless Vanara Shatabali explored whole of the northern direction along with his army, but he too came back as Seetha is undiscovered there.
vrm.4.47 Thus, Vanara chiefs reported to their king Sugreeva.
vrm.4.48 Hanuma, the Vanara, quickly started along with Angada, Lt.
vrm.4.48 Then all of those Vanara commanders gave up that province and entered another impermeable province as they are fearless from any quarter.
vrm.4.50 Tara and others, the Vanara Hanuma searched the caves and thick forests of Vindhya Range.
vrm.4.50 b, a The son of Vayu Hanuma whose glossiness is like that of a mountaintop and who is a mastermind in scrutinising every inscrutable forest, then spoke to all of the formidable Vanara s.
vrm.4.50 a Vanara s have also observed mounds of undefiled gold stockpiled here and there glowing with the glow of ritual fire.
vrm.4.51 "I am the daughter of Merusaavarni, oh, best Vanara, named Swayamprabha and I am safeguarding this mansion of her, that Apsara Hema.
vrm.4.52 When those Vanara commanders are relaxed after refreshments, then that sainted lady, who concentrates single mindedly and who is a pursuer of probity, spoke this word to all of them.
vrm.4.53 The crown prince and a great foreseer Angada, the Vanara, whose nape of neck is leonine and bullish, arms lengthy and sturdy, then as usual paying respects to elderly Vanaras greeted all of the forest dwellers and spoke this sentence in a modest voice.
vrm.4.53 Who can be complacent by keeping the directive of Vanara s king incomplete?
vrm.4.53 b, c On hearing all that uttered by that youngish Angada, the crown prince, all of those prominent Vanara s sympathetically spoke these words.
vrm.4.54 When Lt Tara whose resplendence is similar to moonshine has spoken that way, then Hanuma deemed that Angada is laying siege to that kingdom of Vanara s.
vrm.4.54 "As with your father you are undeniably abler in warfare, oh, the son of Lady Tara, and as with your father you are unquestionably capable enough to sustain the Vanara kingdom.
vrm.4.54 "Oh, best Vanara, Angada, Vanaras will be inconsistent at their will, isn t it! Separated from their sons and wives they cannot tolerate to remain under your control for a long.
vrm.4.54 This Jambavanta, these Vanaras like Niila, and great Vanara Suhotra and others do not definitely tagalong you, isn t it.
vrm.4.54 "Always sulking and reminiscing on their sons and wives, and hungered for the proximity of their kinfolk and hungered for diverse palatability as any Vanara would cherish, even so, lamenting on the beds of lament they push you backwards.
vrm.4.54 Such as you are you will end up as a highly frightened Vanara, even from the shaking of a piece of straw.
vrm.4.57 Though Sampati s voice is turned husky by his sadness for the demise of his brother Jatayu, the Vanara commanders doubtingly disbelieved neither him nor even his words by the fact of his being an eagle intending to kill and eat up all the Vanaras.
vrm.4.57 When all of the Vanara chiefs made up their mind in this way, then some of them on going to the mountaintop brought that eagle down, and then Angada spoke to the eagle.
vrm.4.57 "Oh, bird, my noble grandfather is known as Rikshaja who was a valorous and an outstanding Vanara among all Vanaras, was the king of Vanaras.
vrm.4.60 Then the Vanara commanders sat on that beautiful mountain surrounding the eagle from all over, after that eagle has offered water oblations for his deceased Jatayu and bathed for purification.
vrm.4.64 When those troops of Vanara army stood encircling Angada, it beamed forth like the army of Gods encircling Indra.
vrm.4.64 "Who is that brave hurdler who can hurdle over a hundred Yojana distance, oh, fly jumpers, who is he who can even emancipate all these Vanara commanders from the great fear of Sugreeva.
vrm.4.64 "If someone among you is competent enough to jump over the ocean, that Vanara may now quickly give us all, a munificence, called a solemn impunity from Sugreeva.
vrm.4.64 On hearing Angada s words there is none someone to say something in that matter, as the entire Vanara troop is as though dumbfounded.
vrm.4.65 Then on hearing the words of Angada those best Vanara s, namely Gaja, Gavaksha, Gavaya, Sharabha, Gandhamadana, Mainda and Dvivida, and Susheshana, and like that Jambavanta have individually said about their abilities in the matter of leaping the ocean according to their turn.
vrm.4.65 quot But mighty Shushena, the best and the great resplendent Vanara said, I promise to
vrm.4.65 Then on reverencing the great Vanara Jambavanta, the highly intelligent Angada thereafter said these salutary words.
vrm.4.65 the son of respected Vali too, and oh, best Vanara, sheltered by you we are indeed capable of achieving the objective of our task.
vrm.4.65 When that highly scholarly Jambavanta has said thus, the great Vanara and the son of Vali Angada said this sentence in reply as an answer.
vrm.4.65 If I am not proceeding to Lanka, nor any other Vanara is proceeding, then we have to undertake self immolation once again, isn t it! I do not perceive any secure protection for our lives on our going to Kishkindha without fulfilling the bidding of that resolute king of Vanaras Sugreeva.
vrm.4.66 On overseeing the crestfallen Vanara soldiery, which is with many
vrm.4.66 Oh, forthright Vanara, you are the finest among all beings by the dint of your force, faculty, flair, and fortitude.
vrm.4.66 Punjikasthala yclept Anjana is the nicest Apsara among all Apsara s and she is the wife of Kesari, the Vanara.
vrm.4.66 She who is distinguished for her unparalleled mien in the three worlds, oh, dear boy Hanuma, had to take a rebirth on earth as a Vanara who can change her form by her wish, owing to a curse.
vrm.4.66 She who took birth as the daughter of great souled Vanara chief Kunjara, on assuming a human physique, putting on caparisons of amazing garlands, dressed in silken clothing, and shining forth with rarity of her beauty and nubility, at one time ambled on the top of a mountain like a streak of lightning athwart a black cloud of rainy season.
vrm.4.66 Oh, arcane Vanara Hanuma, when Vayu said so to her, oh, ambidextrous one, your mother is gratified, and then, oh, bullish fly jumpers, your mother very well divined you in a cave.
vrm.4.66 Even on your flying up three hundred Yojana s, oh, brave Vanara, and even when sun s radiation puffed and blown you down, you did not get into any anguish as were indefatigable.
vrm.4.66 Oh, mighty Vanara, even on seeing you who are coming near the vault of heaven, Indra is captivated by anger and by his effulgence he catapulted his Thunderbolt at you.
vrm.4.66 Arise, oh, lion like Vanara, leap over this vast ocean, oh,
vrm.4.66 Thereafter, when the best Vanara among Vanaras, namely Jambavanta, the king of Rikshas has motivated, then that son of Vaayu, Hanuma, whose speed is familiar coupled with his irresistible enterprise, enormously increased his physique as though to gladded the army of Vanaras.
vrm.4.67 On seeing that best Vanara Hanuma, who is burgeoning to cross over the hundred Yojana ocean and who is also quickly, progressively, and stupendously maximising his body, the other Vanaras instantly shunning off their sadness, raved and rhapsodized over that staggeringly mighty Vanara, Hanuma.
vrm.4.67 Hanuma who is already an outmatching Vanara by way of his energy, has now accrued added energy obtained through the gladness derived by the way of extolment from other Vanaras, and then he impetuously lashed his tail and oversized himself.
vrm.4.67 His physique which is being reinforced with resplendence while all the Vanara chiefs are eulogising him has become unsurpassed in its form.
vrm.4.67 b, a The Vanara leaders forgathered here are enamoured of your blessedness, and for the purpose of your attainment of the object, they all obsecrate orisons, devoutly.
vrm.4.67 Then that tigerly Vanara Hanuma said to the forest dwelling Vanaras, Even so, in this world whosoever he might be, either animate or inanimate being, he cannot possibly bear the brunt of my bouncing.
vrm.4.67 b, a Then that Vanara who is the son of Vayu and a selfsame of Vayu shinned up that towering mountain Mahendra, as he is an enemy subjugator about to subjugate the arch rival Ravana, where that mountain is hedged in with diverse flowers, its pastures are the sweethearts of deer, it is constrictive with diverse flowers of ever flowering, ever fruiting trees and with the flowers of climbers as well, and where Lions and Tigers are freely moving and ruttish Elephants love it, and where the flights of Birds are uproarious, and pent up
vrm.4.67 He who is equal in valour to the Paradisiacal Mahendra, that highly energetic and grand Vanara Hanuma ambled on loftiest and towery crags of such a mountain.
vrm.4.67 And he who is an importantly brave Vanara among all the Vanaras, an eliminator of enemy stalwarts, that highly proficient, expeditious, and conscientious Hanuma, on stabilising his impulses and making soul is quite staid
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara Hanuma shone like a Naga in a lake, standing on the foot of that great mountain, where many Nagas resided, which was beautifully decorated with many naturally formed mineral rocks of varied hue like black, white, red, blue, yellow and green and which was surrounded by Pannagas and Yakshas, Kinnaras, Gandharvas who were capable of assuming desired form, together with their families.
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara also thought himself equal to Garuda, the king of Birds.
vrm.5.1 Hanuma the great Vanara presented a wonderful sight, with his mountain like appearance together with the well flowered trees.
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara shone like one who is drinking the great sea together with its waves.
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara Hanuma, with his red colored buttocks, shone like a mountain with a large deposit of red Gairika herb broken into pieces.
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara with great speed flew in the sky striking with his chest series of waves which had a great body like that of mountains.
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara Hanuma, the great resplendent one with a huge body, shone like a mountain with wings flying in the sky without any support underneath.
vrm.5.1 That great Vanara Hanuma with a great speed, brought that great tall mountain with His chest just as the God of wind would a cloud.
vrm.5.1 "O the great Vanara! You have performed this impossible task of flying over the ocean.
vrm.5.1 "O great Vanara! Because this matter is like this, you are suitable to make myself and Sagara happy, with a gladdened heart.
vrm.5.1 This Vanara Hanuma is going for the benefit of Sri Rama, the son of Dasaratha.
vrm.5.1 Seeing that Vanara being released from her mouth like the moon from the mouth of Rahu, goddess Surasa spoke these words assuming her normal form.
vrm.5.1 That Simhika seeing the growing body of the great Vanara Hanuma, spread her mouth to be equal to the middle of Patala.
vrm.5.1 Roaring like a dense cloud, she ran towards the Vanara.
vrm.5.3 Thereafter Hanuma the Vanara, became happy seeing the doors which were of golden color, with platforms of cat s eye gems, inlaid with diamonds, crystals and pearls, embellished with floors of gems, graced with Elephants made of refined gold, crowned with spotless white silver, stairs studded with cat s eye gems, with inside walls made of crystal free from dust, provided with lovely assembly halls, with sounds of Krauncha Birds and Peacocks, served by royal Swans, looking as though flying toward the sky, with auspicious houses resounding everywhere with the sounds of clarionets and ornaments, equalling the city of Vasvankasara, as though flying towards the sky.
vrm.5.3 This land may be conquerable by Kumuda or Angada, to the great Vanara Sushena or to Mainda or Dvivida.
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.5.3 That great Vanara saw that city of king of rakshasas like a wealthy woman decorated with diamonds for her clothes, with various storage houses as earrings, with amouries for her breasts.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! It is indeed not possible for you to enter this city of Lanka which is protected by Ravana s forces and strongly guarded all around.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! I am protecting this city of Lanka in all directions.
vrm.5.3 "O lowly Vanara with an evil mind! It is not possile for you to see this city ruled by king of rakshasas, without first defeating me.
vrm.5.3 Thereafter that Lanka being very gloomy spoke with a falterting tone without pride these words to Hanuma the Vanara.
vrm.5.3 "O Vanara! I am myself the city of Lanka.
vrm.5.3 "Let this be known by you whenever a Vanara conquers you with his might, then a fear will come for Rakshasas.
vrm.5.5 Thereafter that Vanara warrior saw those with great happiness, those who obtained lovers who entertained, those who attracted like flowers, those with great beauty and women in their houses filled with happiness.
vrm.5.6 Hanuma the commander of Vanara army with great radiance went for the intellectual Suka s house, for Sarana s house, and in the same way for the house of Indrajit.
vrm.5.8 That Hanuma the best among Vanara warriors saw there a best plane with the name of Pushpaka with a more beautiful appearance than a group of flowers during spring, a more attractive appearance than even the spring season.
vrm.5.13 The son of Vayu, that Vanara went by mind before itself toward that Ashoka garden.
vrm.5.14 Thereafter the Vanara warrior Hanuma saw a mountain which was a beautiful mountain in the world, equaling cloud with high peaks, with wonderful peaks surrounded in all directions by peaks, spread by caves and covered by different trees.
vrm.5.14 The Vanara warrior Hanuma saw one shimshupaa tree golden in colour covered with many groups of creepers and with many leaves surrounded everywhere with platforms made of gold.
vrm.5.15 That Vanara warrior Hanuma saw not far away in that Ashoka garden, in the middle, a lofty temple filled with fragrance like a second Gandhamadana Mountain, standing by a thousand pillars, white like Mount Kailasa with stairs made of corals with platforms made of refined gold as though radiant with glory, clear and because of being tall as though scraping the sky.
vrm.5.17 Hanuma saw horrible Rakshasis, dark complexioned ones, angry ones, those who like quarrels, ones wearing big darts, mallets and clubs of Iron, with faces like those of Pigs, Deer, Tigers, Buffaloes, Goats, she Foxes, with feet like those of Elephants, Camels, Horses, with heads sunk into bodies, with single hand and single foot, those ears like that of Donkeys and Horses, those with cow ears, those with Elephant ears, those with Vanara ears, and some others without nose, those with horizontal nose, those with crooked nose, those with Elephant like nose, toes with nose fixed in forehead, with feet like those of Elephant, those with big feet, those with cow like feet, those with hair on their feet, those with big heads and necks, those with big nipples and big stomach, those with big eyes and mouths, with long tongues and nails, and also the a face like that of a she goat, those with Elephant like face, those with face like that of a cow, those with face of a she Pig, those with faces like those of Horses, Camels, Donkeys, those with horrible appearance, Rakshasis carrying pikes and clubs in their hand, angry ones, those who like quarrels, those with high teeth, with hair color like that of smoke, with horrible faces, always drinking liquor, always desiring meat and liquor, with body smeared by meat and blood, with meat and blood as food, whose appearance made hair to stand up, sitting around a great tree with huge trunk.
vrm.5.17 The Vanara Hanuma saw that Seetha with great beauty with black eyes, covered by a cloth which was creased and dirty, with eyes of a deer, with a pitiful face, not depressed due to the brilliance of her husband, protected by her own character.
vrm.5.18 Hanuma the Vanara saw that Ravana also, performer of deeds without an equal, with unfathomable might and virility, reaching the entrance region.
vrm.5.18 That great Vanara with great brilliance saw that Ravana with glory.
vrm.5.18 The son of god of wind Vanara Hanuma of great brilliance thinking thus "This long armed one is Ravana", jumped down.
vrm.5.24 That Vanara Hanuma not talking and hiding in the Simsupa tree listened to those Rakshasa women frightening Seetha.
vrm.5.27 Lanka" protected by Ravana has been seen by me in the dream to be burnt by a quick Vanara who is a messenger of Rama.
vrm.5.30 "However, I am very small in stature, particularly as a Vanara and can speak now Sanskrit, the human language too.
vrm.5.30 Especially, how can a Vanara speak it?"
vrm.5.30 "Even after due reflection, I do not see any Vanara who can transgress the ocean with a breadth of one hundred Yojanas, in case I am killed.
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 “By the words of Sampati, I a swift Vanara crossed the ocean having a length of one hundred Yojanas for the sake of this broad eyed Seetha.
vrm.5.32 Seetha beheld there a Vanara, beaming like a cluster of Ashoka flowers wide opened, with his eyes resembling regined gold, humble and speaking agreeable words.
vrm.5.32 Seetha got a great surprise and thought as follows: "Alas! This Vanara is hard to be approached, fearful and difficult to be looked at.
vrm.5.32 Seeing that excellent Vanara appraching humbly, that splendid woman Seetha thought it as a dream.
vrm.5.32 Regaining her consciousness after a long time the wide eyed Seetha moreover thought as follows Today", I saw an ugly Vanara in my dream, which is forbidden according to a body of scriptures.
vrm.5.32 for what reason?" "My salutation to Brihaspati the Lord of eloquence, together with Indra the wielder of a thunderbolt, to Brahma the self existent Lord and to the Lord of Fire eating the oblations! Let whatever words spoken by this Vanara be true! Let them not be untrue!"
vrm.5.34 "O Vanara! Narrate the qualities of my beloved Rama.
vrm.5.34 "I, who was taken away long ago, is seeing a Vanara sent by Rama in this way.
vrm.5.34 Seeing a Vanara in a dream does not bring about prosperity But prosperity has come to me!" "How possibly is it a delusion of my mind? Is it an impending course of flatulence or changing mental condition of madness? Is it a looming mirage?" "Otherwise, it is neither madness nor even a delusion, which is a symptom of madness.
vrm.5.34 Because I am knowing about myself as also about this Vanara.
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 "I am a Vanara, the minister of Sugreeva, called Hanuma.
vrm.5.35 Thereafter, all those multitude of ornaments which adorned your body, which were being tried to be be snatched away by Ravana and which were dropped on to the earth, were brought by Vanara leaders joyfully and shown to Rama.
vrm.5.35 But the Vanara leaders did not know the further course of your movement.
vrm.5.35 An excellent Vanara named Angada, possessed of fortune, son of Vali and having great strength, taking one third of army along with him, set out in search of you.
vrm.5.35 From there, a Vanara called Kesari went to another mountain called Gokarna.
vrm.5.35 As prayed by Gods and seers, that great Vanara called Kesari, my father killed a Rakshasa named Shambasadana at a sacred shrine near the sea shore.
vrm.5.35 O Seetha! I am born in the womb of the wife of that Kesari the Vanara, by the grace of the Marut.
vrm.5.35 Seetha considered Hanuma clearly as a Vanara and not otherwise.
vrm.5.35 O Seetha! As provoked by the sages, Kesari, the valiant Vanara killed a Rakshasa called Shambasadana in battle.
vrm.5.35 I am a Vanara born through Marut and through his influence I am equal to the Vayu in strength.
vrm.5.36 Hanuma, the highly energetic son of Vayu, with an inducement to obtain confidence from Seetha, again modestly spoke the following words: O illustrious lady! I am a Vanara and a messenger of the wise Rama.
vrm.5.36 Uttering delightful words, she praised Hanuma the great Vanara as follows: O Hanuma the best of Vanaras! You have singly overpowered this place infested by Rakshasas.
vrm.5.36 Hence, I do not consider you as an ordinary Vanara.
vrm.5.37 "O great Vanara! I know fully well your courage, strength, your power of movement like that of the wind and your wonderful brilliance like that of the fire.
vrm.5.37 "O brave Vanara! Those valiant Rakshasas wielding darts and clubs in their hands will surround you.
vrm.5.38 Hearing the words of Hanuma, Seetha, like the daughter of a sage, tormented with grief, spoke to Hanuma the Vanara as follows:
vrm.5.39 "O valiant Vanara, the annihilator of enemies! If you are agreeable, stay for a day at any one secret place.
vrm.5.39 "O valiant Vanara! That is why, what strategy are you visualizing to fulfill this act, which is thus impassable? You are indeed excellent of those who know how to accomplish a task.
vrm.5.40 "O valiant Vanara! After approaching Rama, appraise him of this terrific gush of my grief and also about the threatening attitude of these female Rakshasas.
vrm.5.42 Then, the ugly faced female Rakshasas, whose sleep has vanished, found that grove demolished and saw that great heroic Vanara.
vrm.5.42 Beholding that mighty Vanara having a gigantic body similar to a mountain, the female Rakshasas then asked Seetha as follows:
vrm.5.42 After approaching Ravana, the female Rakshasas of ugly faces started to tell as follows of the monstrous and terrific Vanara.
vrm.5.42 "O king! A Vanara having a terrific body and a boundless prowess, is stationed in the middle of Ashoka grove and made a conversation with Seetha.
vrm.5.42 "Eventhough questioned in many ways by us, Seetha, the daughter of Janaka, having eyes similar to those of a doe, is not inclined to tell about the Vanara.
vrm.5.42 "To that terribly looking Vanara, who talked with Seetha and destroyed that grove, you are entitled to order a terrible punishment.
vrm.5.44 The long armed Jambumali transfixed sharp arrows into that great Vanara, Hanuma who was standing on the top of the archy door way.
vrm.5.45 Roaming about in a cloudless sky, that fast footed Vanara made the arrows and the speedy chariots of those virile Rakshasas, useless.
vrm.5.46 "Approaching that Vanara, you ought to become diligent.
vrm.5.46 "Judging him by his actions, I do not think him as a mere Vanara.
vrm.5.46 This Vanara of a great prowess should not be despised by you.
vrm.5.46 "Keeping in view that it is a great evil spirit standing in the form of a Vanara, exert a great effort and capture it.
vrm.5.46 Thereafter, those valiant Rakshasas saw that Hanuma the great Vanara, encircled by his rays of splendour like a rising sun, shining, standing on the archy door way, possessing enormous energy, strong mental disposition and colossal strength.
vrm.5.46 Approaching a sala tree and uprooting it, that Hanuma the Vanara killed those two valiant Rakshasas.
vrm.5.47 Mounting a great chariot, having a splendour of a newly risen sun and overlaid with a protective armour of highly refined gold, that valiant cheif of Rakshasas sallied forth towards that mighty Vanara.
vrm.5.47 Aksha, filling the sky earth and its mountains with sounds of Horses Elephants and chariots, together with his army, approached the efficient Hanuma the great Vanara, standing at the archy door way.
vrm.5.47 Recognizing that Hanuma, as a haughty Vanara, after having gallantly conquered his adversaries and accustomed to fatigue, that Aksha, graspign the bow and arrows his hand, saw him with an excited mind.
vrm.5.48 "O intelligent one! Seeing the great strength, power and prowess of this Vanara and keeping in view your own strength, exhibit your valour accordingly.
vrm.5.48 There is no use taking a weapon like a strong thunder bolt against the Vanara.
vrm.5.48 Making the total target of Indrajit who was skilled in hitting his target useless, Hanuma the great Vanara swiftly wheeled about between the arrows.
vrm.5.48 Keeping in view of that Vanara being incapable of being slain, Indrajit, Ravanas’ son then formed an idea as to how to resort to capture of that Hanuma the chief of Vanara warriors.
vrm.5.48 Thereafter, some Rakshasas, highly enraged, said to one another as follows: “Let this Vanara be killed, even roasted alive and devoured.
vrm.5.50 That Ravana, the long armed, who caused people to cry, looking up at that Vanara standing in front of him, was affected with violent anger, having his mind seized with suspicion, speculated as follows about Hanuma, the jewel among the Vanaras, who was invested with splendour.
vrm.5.50 “When Mount Kailasa was moved by me, is it the same Nandi the divine bull which cursed me long ago and came here now in this form or whether he is Bana the great Asura came here in the form of a Vanara.
vrm.5.50 “Ask this wicked Vanara from where did he come, for what reason did he come to this place and for what purpose did he frighten the female Rakshasas in destroying our garden.
vrm.5.50 “Ask this evil minded Vanara as to what really is his purpose in coming over to my invincible City and what pursuit he is doing this battle.
vrm.5.50 Hearing the words of Ravana, Prahasta spoke the following words to Hanuma, “Take courage! Happiness to you! You need not get frightened, O Vanara!” “O Vanara! If Indra has sent you to the abode of Ravana, tell me the truth.
vrm.5.50 "O Vanara! Your form alone is that of a Vanara.
vrm.5.50 Your splendour indeed is not that of a Vanara.
vrm.5.50 I am a Vanara who came here.
vrm.5.51 "O king of Rakshasas! Listen to my truthful words coming as it is from the lips of this servant of Rama, his messenger and particularly of this Vanara.
vrm.5.52 "O hero! Killing of this Vanara is against a royal virtue and any universal custom condemns it.
vrm.5.52 So, I shall kill this Vanara, who performed sins.
vrm.5.52 "I do not see any merit in killing this Vanara.
vrm.5.52 Let this carnal punishment be employed on those by whom this Vanara was sent.
vrm.5.53 Ravana ordered that let the Vanara be carried around with his burning tail by the Rakshasas in the entire city around its cross roads.
vrm.5.53 "O Seetha! That Vanara with a red face, who had a conversation with you, is being moved around in the city, with his ignited tail.
vrm.5.54 The Rakshasas, who were running hither and thither to protect their houses and who lost their spirits and abundant wealth, created a tumultuous nose, saying "Alas! The Agni has come really in a form of this Vanara!"
vrm.5.54 The high souled Hanuma, the swift Vanara scorched the city of Lanka, as Rudra scorched the city of Tripura.
vrm.5.54 "He is not a Vanara.
vrm.5.54 "Whether the rage of four faced Brahma, the grand father of all and the creator of all has arrived here in the guise of a Vanara, playing the role of a destroyer of Rakshasas?" "Or whether a supreme bright energy of Vishnu, the lord of maintenance of the Universe, unthinkable, unmanifest, infinite and pearless, arrived now, assuming the form of a Vanara for the destruction of Rakshasas, by virtue of Her extraordinary power?" Thus spoke all those excellent troops of Rakshasas in multitude, gathering together there, on seeing that city scorched so soon, with its host of living beings, houses and trees.
vrm.5.54 After demolishing the garden which was full of excellent trees, killing great Rakshasas in battle and burning that city endowed with a series of excellent houses, Hanuma the Vanara and the son of Vayu, stood at ease.
vrm.5.54 Seeing that Hanuma, the foremost among the Vanaras and a mighty Vanara, all the created beings were frightened, thinking of him as a fire that is to destroy the world.
vrm.5.55 Seeing the city of Lanka blazing, and frightened with its multitude of Rakshasas getting alarmed, Hanuma the Vanara became thoughtful.
vrm.5.57 While moving in the sky, the illustrious Hanuma, the son of wind god and the great Vanara, appeared as if swallowing the sky, scratching
vrm.5.58 Then, Jambavan, thrilling with rapture, asked the delighted Hanuma, the great Vanara about the particulars of that actual occurrence of seeing Seetha as follows “How did you see Seetha? How was she there? How was that Ravana of terrible deeds behaving towards her?” “O Hanuma! Tell us entirely, in truth whatever has occurred.
vrm.5.58 The divine Surasa, in her native form, spoke to me again, as follows: O gently Vanara! O the foremost among Vanaras! Go happily for the fulfillment of your purpose.
vrm.5.58 O mighty armed Vanara! Be happy.
vrm.5.58 "Heartily laughing with a great noise, that terrific woman, spoke to me the following inauspicious words, firmly and without any bewilderment as follows: "O gigantic Vanara! Where are you going? You are my requisite food, hungry as I am.
vrm.5.58 "Coming from their respective places and seeing me in that garden, those female Rakshasas quickly went and reported the matter to Ravana as follows:" "O mighty king! Indeed not knowing your prowess, an evil minded Vanara ahs demolished your inaccessible garden.
vrm.5.58 "O emperor! Give orders quickly for killing him, so that the evil minded Vanara, who caused offence to you, will get destroyed.
vrm.5.58 I am the offspring of wind god and a Vanara by name Hanuma
vrm.5.58 Know me to be a Vanara, an envoy of Rama and a minister of 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 leaves and flowers the Vanara named Dadhimukha who was incharge of the grove then angrily interrupted those Vanaras.
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.5.63 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 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 "To tell this matter in sweet words, the Vanara renowned by Dadhimukha by name, with his celebrated prowess, has come here.
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 All those leaders of Vanara troops, like stones shot from a catapult, making the space space less, followed Angada, who was springing forward.
vrm.5.68 O valiant Vanara! That is why, what strategy are you visualizing to fulfill this act, which is so difficult to accomplish thus? You are indeed excellent of those who know how to accomplish any work
vrm.6.2 “These leaders of Vanara squads are gallant and efficient in all ways.
vrm.6.4 “Let the Vanara called Rishabha, Lord of the simians and the best of the primates march forward, duly guarding the right side of the army of the simians.
vrm.6.4 Let the highly strong, Jambavan with Sushena and the Vanara called Vegadarshi, all three, guard the middle part of the army.
vrm.6.4 The heroic Vanara satabali who was accompanied by ten crores of Vanaras, standing alone firmly, guarded the whole army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.4 Valimukha, Prajangha, Jambha and Rabhasa the Vanara were moving on all sides, urging the Vanaras forward.
vrm.6.4 The colossal Vanara army advanced, encompassing the southern region like a mass of cloud enveloping the sky.
vrm.6.4 That extensive Vanara army was marching day and night.
vrm.6.4 The dust blown from that metal by the velocity of wind, coming forth from all sides, obscured the huge Vanara army.
vrm.6.4 Seeing the sea, the abode of Varuna, which was boundless and having the opposite shore far off, inhabitd by a number of Rakshasas, the Vanara troups sat down there.
vrm.6.6 Having seen the fearful and the terrible act in Lanka done by Hanuma, like Devendra the powerful King of Devas, Ravana with his face descended a little with shame, spoke to the Rakshasas as follows: “By him, who was only a Vanara, the irresistible City of Lanka was entered into and was over powered.
vrm.6.8 That Vanara cannot go alive, while I am alive.
vrm.6.8 “Oh, Ravana! I shall arrange for your defence from that Vanara.
vrm.6.8 A Rakshasa by name Durmukha, being seriously enraged, spoke to him as follows: “This humiliation meted out to us by that Vanara is indeed not to be tolerated.
vrm.6.12 How the Vanaras or even Rama and Lakshmana can cross the unassailable ocean, completely infested as it was with sea animals?" "on the other hand, a huge destruction was done to us, by a single Vanara.
vrm.6.12 By exterminating Rama along with Lakshmana, I shall devour all the leaders of Vanara troops.
vrm.6.17 Having spoken thus by the Vanaras, Angada the intelligent Vanara told Rama to arrange for examination of Vibhishana before hand.
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.6.22 “Let this greatly energetic Vanara build a bridge across me.
vrm.6.22 Then, being sent by Rama, hundreds and thousands of Vanara heroes jumped in joy on all sides towards the great forest.
vrm.6.22 That Nala, the strong and illustrious son of Visvakarma and an excellent Vanara built the bridge across the sea as truly as his father would have built it.
vrm.6.24 I shall stand alert in the forefront of the army along with Lakshmana and let Jambavan, Sushena and Vegadarshi the Vanara those three exceedingly wise persons and the leaders of Rikshas protect the belly portion of the army.
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 "It is all due to Angada s design that Seetha was found by Hanuman, who is a swift Vanara and a well wisher of Rama.
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.6.26 He has a very long hair coppery, yellow, pale and white and hideous to cook upon thrown about on his tail is the intrepid and fierceful Vanara called Kanda.
vrm.6.26 "The one who is like a great cloud, enveloping the space and who stays in teh middle of Vanara warriors like Indra the great voice of whose Vanaras wishing for battle is heard like the roll of drums, is the General named Panasa, who is always invincible in battle.
vrm.6.26 "A Vanara called krathana, keeping the courageous, strong Vanaras and the army lieutenants in separate units, is inviting you for the battle.
vrm.6.26 "That resplendent Vanara who for his part nourishes his body having the hue of a red chalk and proud of his strength, stands facing you with anger despising all other Vanaras.
vrm.6.27 "He is a Vanara called Hara, who has terrific acts to his credit.
vrm.6.27 “He who, walking on all fours touches with his flanks, a mountain situated at a distance of one Yojana eight miles and reaching an object one Yojana high, obtains it with his body, whose huge form no other four begged animal is having, by which intelligent Vanara, battle was given earlier to Indra on a field of battle but no defeat was sustained by him, he is a commander of commanders and the grand father of Vanaras, famous as Samnadana by name.
vrm.6.27 “O, monarch! One hundred lakhs of Vanaras with their black faces, with fearful appearance and with great strength, experiencing the crossing of the bridge, surrounds the troop leader by name Gavaksha, a Vanara and are making a roaring noise, ready to crush Lanka by their bodily strength.
vrm.6.27 “This Shatabali the Vanara is courageous, strong, valiant and is established in his manliness.
vrm.6.27 “Each and every single one, like Gaja, Gavaya, Nala and a Vanara called Nila is surrounded by crores of warriors.
vrm.6.28 “As for that Vanara who you see there, resembling an intoxicated Elephant, who in strength and fury is able to churn up the ocean itself, it is he who came to Lanka to find Seetha and spy on you, O, Lord! See that Vanara, who was seen earlier and who appears here again.
vrm.6.28 “This Vanara, by whom the ocean was traversed, is the eldest son of Kesari.
vrm.6.28 “This excellent Vanara can assume any form at will.
vrm.6.28 One“ of the jaws of this Vanara who fell down on the head of the rock, was a little fractured.
vrm.6.28 “This Vanara is known to me actually through the words of my bosom friends.
vrm.6.28 How do you forget this Vanara by whom this fire was lighted and is still blazing up Lanka.
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.6.30 “O, king! Here is Sushena the son of Yama the Lord of Death who is valiant and virtuous, as well as a Vanara called Dadhimukha, the cool minded, who is the son of moon.
vrm.6.30 Sumukha“, Durmukha and a Vanara called Vegadarshi are surely the personifications of death in the form of Vanaras, created by Brahma, the Lord of creation.
vrm.6.30 “Here too is the virtuous Lakshmana, resembling the most excellent Elephant among Elephants, in the path of whose arrows, even Indra himself could not survive Sweta“ and Jyotimukha, the sons of the sun god, a Vanara called Hemakuta, another son of Varuna, Nila the son of Visvakarma the strong and the best of Vanaras, as well as that mighty and swift Durdhara the son of Vasus are all here.
vrm.6.34 In the meantime was heard the sound of all the Vanara troops blended with the sound of kettle drums, causing earth to shake.
vrm.6.34 Hearing that sound of that Vanara troops, the servants of Ravana stationed in Lanka were lack luster with their movements, overcome by depression.
vrm.6.37 "Having set out these Vanara forces in battle array, you shall destryoy Ravana with this great army of Vanaras, composed of four divisions, which surround you.
vrm.6.37 Vanaras" should not assume human form in the battle, for, in the army of Vanaras, this Vanara shape should serve as a sign of recognition among us.
vrm.6.38 Hanuman, Angada, Nila, Mainda, Dvivida, Gaja, Gavaksha, Gavaya, Sharabha, Gandhamadana, Panasa, Kumuda, Hara, Rambha the chief of the troop, Jambavan, sushena, the greatly wise Rishabha, Durmukha of great splendour, Shatabali the Vanara and other hundreds of Vanaras which are fast moving, which can wander easily on mountains with a speed akin to that of wind, ascended that Suvela mountain which Rama ascended.
vrm.6.38 The chiefs of Vanara troops saw that beautiful City of Lanka, furnished with excellent gates, enriched with exquisitc ramparts and pervaded all over with Rakshasas.
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 “O, Vanara of great strength, equal to Indra and Varuna! If you have not returned, though I am conversant with your valour, this was my pre determined resolve that having killed Ravana in fight with his sons forces and chariots, I should have installed Vibhishana as king of Lanka, placing the kingdom of Ayodhya in the hands of Bharata and renounced my life.
vrm.6.41 The strong Vanara Hanuman together with Prajangha, Tarasa and other warriors, guarded the western gate.
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 While the flock of Vanara troops was advancing there, a tremendous clamour arose, resembling a roar in the ocean beating against its shore.
vrm.6.41 Then, the enraged Ravana repeatedly commanded his attendants, saying: “Let this stupid Vanara be seized and put to death.
vrm.6.41 Causing restlessness to all the Rakshasas but delight to the Vanaras, Angada approached close to Rama, who was stationed in the middle of the Vanara forces.
vrm.6.41 Now, Sushena the highly valiant Vanara, was stationed there like the head of the mountain surrounded by innumerable Vanaras, who were bale to change their form at will.
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 Full of delight, Rama passed forward on the back of a Vanara along with his army and saw Lanka being guarded on all sides and thronged with Rakshasas.
vrm.6.42 thus resolved all the Vanara generals.
vrm.6.42 Lifting up mountain peaks and huge rocks and plucking up various kinds of trees, the Vanara generals stood prepared for the attack.
vrm.6.42 Those Vanara generals Virabahu, Subahu, Nala and Panasa, having position on them.
vrm.6.42 Surrounded by other Vanaras, a Vanara called Prasabha and the mighty armed Panasa too up their position, in order to assist Kumuda himself.
vrm.6.42 The strong and valiant Vanara, Shatabali accompanied by twenty crores of Vanaras, approached the southern gate while remaining stationed in south east and stood there, to obstruct the exit.
vrm.6.42 The mighty Vanara named Sushena, the father of Tara Vali’s wife, going to the western gate while remaining stationed in the south west surrounded by crores and croes of Vanaras, stood besieging that gate.
vrm.6.42 The sound of couches and drums made by the Rakshasas and the leouine roars of those Vanara warriors re echoed over the earth, sky and sea.
vrm.6.43 While highly wise Vanara troops and the Rakshasas were fighting a terrible military ferocity arose in them.
vrm.6.43 The ever indomitable Sampati fought with Prajangha and Hanuman the Vanara measured his strength with Jambumali.
vrm.6.43 That great Vanara called Sushena, the strong son of Yama fought with Vidyunmali.
vrm.6.43 The swift Vanara, Angada struck his chariot, having a variegated body of gold, along with Horses and the charioteer 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.6.43 That Ashaniprabha wounded Dvivida the Vanara leader by his thunder bolt like arrows, while Dvivida was fighting with trees in the battle.
vrm.6.43 Sushena the excellent Vanara, seeing him mounted on a chariot, quickly caused the chariot to fall down, by a huge rock.
vrm.6.43 Then, the excellent Vanara, Sushena engulfed as he was with anger, seizing a very huge rock in his hands, chased that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.43 Vidyunmali the ranger of the night struck that approaching Sushena the excellent Vanara, quickly with a mace on his chest.
vrm.6.43 Not minding that terrific blow with the mace in the great battle, Sushena the excellent Vanara silently threw that huge rock on his chest.
vrm.6.44 “You are a Rakshasa” said the Vanaras “You are a Vanara” said the Rakshasas and killed at each other in battle during that dreadful darkness.
vrm.6.44 Indrajit, on the other hand, then was driven to a very terrible rage, as he was defeated in battle by Angada the son of Vali a dreadful Vanara.
vrm.6.45 That very strong and powerful Rama the son of Dasaratha ordered ten Vanara generals to search for the whereabouts of Indrajit.
vrm.6.46 Breathing but faintly, bathed in blood riddled with innumerable arrows, motionless and lying inactive, they lay stretched on a bed of arrows, sighing like serpants, helpless, having little prowess, their limbs smeared with a stream of blood, resembling two golden standards, and lying on heroes’ couch, those warriors with tardy movement of their limbs, were surrounded by their Vanara leaders, whose eyes were suffused with tears.
vrm.6.46 Thus speaking to all those Rakshasas, Indrajit the son of Ravana by his arrows struck the Vanara chief.
vrm.6.46 Indrajit the wielder of a great bow smacked the chest region of Jambavan with an arrow and released ten arrows towards Hanuman, the swift Vanara.
vrm.6.47 Seetha along with Trijata, transported by that plane, saw all the Vanara troops who had been slain.
vrm.6.54 Stretching his terrific bow, like unto Indra s thunder bolt, he assailed the Vanara battalions with a flood of arrows.
vrm.6.54 Thereafter, under the eyes of Vajradamshtra, all his army of Rakshasas were killed and broken up by the Vanara troops.
vrm.6.54 With their limbs crippled by those arrows and frightened, those Vanara battalions sought refuge with Angada, as all creatures with Brahma the Lord of Creation.
vrm.6.54 When he beheld those Vanara troops fleeing in disorder, Angada the son Vali exchanged glances of hatred with Vajradamshtra.
vrm.6.54 Meanwhile, the rock thrown by Angada, falling into the forefront of the battle, then crushed the chariot with its wheels shafts and Horses Thereafter, Angada the Vanara, seizing another large peak of a mountain adorned with trees, threw it on Vajradamshtra s head.
vrm.6.54 Both the Vanara and the Rakshasa thus hit each other in that combat.
vrm.6.54 The mighty Angada experienced a great joy amidst the Vanara forces, honoured by them for his high courage and he resembled the Lord of a Thousand Eyes surrounded by the Devas.
vrm.6.56 Knowing himself to be bereft of any weapon, Hanuman the excellent Vanara, with a rage, uplifted a mountain quickly.
vrm.6.56 That great Vanara, born of Maruta having encountered and killed the Rakshasas, enjoyed the same renown as Vishnu when he overcame the mighty and terrific Rakshasa of immense power destroying his enemies in the forefront of the battle.
vrm.6.58 Ignoring that blow, he seized a huge mace and ran in strength towards Nila the strong Vanara.
vrm.6.58 Seeing Prahasta of terrible velocity briskly rushing towards him, Nila the great Vanara took a huge rock swiftly.
vrm.6.59 Pierced by the arrows of Ravana the Enemy of Gods, those Vanara Generals of terrifying stature fell on the ground.
vrm.6.59 Assailed and fallen down, those Vanara warriors, emitted cries as though struck by an arrow of terror, whom Ravana was destroying with his darts and fled for refuge to Rama who is capable of affording protection to all.
vrm.6.59 Strike quickly without fear, O Vanara! Win eternal renown.
vrm.6.59 Then, the extremely spirited Ravana, having regained his breath, spoke the following words: Well done! Well done! O, Vanara! You are my adversary, worthy of praise by your valour!
vrm.6.59 Nila the Vanara general.
vrm.6.59 Beholding that Vanara sometimes leaping on to the point of Ravana s standard sometimes on to the tip of his bow and sometimes on to the
vrm.6.59 The mighty Ravana, amazed at the Vanara s agility, seized a marvellous and glowing arrow called Agneya the weapon of Fire.
vrm.6.59 Then, Ravana the king of Rakshasas said,: O Vanara! You are endowed with agility combined with a supreme power of magic.
vrm.6.59 Do you save your life if you can, eventhogh you are creating numerous deeds of various kinds indeed worthy of your own self, O, Vanara!
vrm.6.59 soon after mounted the great Vanara, Hanuma.
vrm.6.60 "Already, a single Vanara set fire to our great city of slew the youthful Prince Aksha with his escort of Elephants and retinue.
vrm.6.61 As directed by Raghava, Neela the commander in chief and the foremost of the Vanaras, ordered the Vanara troops suitably.
vrm.6.66 Seeing that terrific Kumbhakarna coming with his dreadful eyes, all those commanders of Vanara troops, speaking words only thus far, scattered in all directions.
vrm.6.67 "O Vanara! You are the grandson of Lord Brahma and even the son of Riksharaja sprung from the yawn of Brahma endowed with firmness and valour.
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 Following the commanders of their troops, let the Vanara leaders stand, surrounding him.
vrm.6.67 The heroic Rama, enraged with red hot eyes, as though he was scorching the enemy with his looks, walked with speed, causing delight to all the leaders of the Vanara troops, who were tormented with the fear of Kumbhakarna and quickly marched towards the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.69 Entering that terrific army of Rakshasas, those Vanara leaders, with their raised mountains, roamed about like mountains with their peaks.
vrm.6.69 The Rakshasas broke the trees and rocks of Vanara chiefs with their sharp arrows with their hoe shaped head, those arrows with crescent shaped head and those with spear like head.
vrm.6.70 Seeing that spear of a terrific form broken up by Hanuma, the Vanara troops were very much delighted and roared aloud like rumbling clouds.
vrm.6.70 Then, a strong Vanara called Rishabha came jumping and stood in front of that Mattanika Mahaparshva, the younger brother of Ravana.
vrm.6.70 That Rishabha, the supreme Vanara regained his consciousness after a long while and enraged as he was with his lips quivering, looked towards Mahaparshva.
vrm.6.70 That Rishabha, the supreme Vanara regained his consciousness after a long while and enraged as he was with his lips quivering, looked towards Mahaparshva.
vrm.6.71 Seeing his form appearing like Vishnu who strided over the three worlds in three steps, the those renowned Vanara warriors with fear, ran away hither and thither.
vrm.6.71 That Rakshasa, who was arrogant of his youth, frightened that army of Vanara warriors, as an enraged lion frightens a herd of Deers.
vrm.6.71 That chief of Rakshasas did not strike whomsoever of the Vanara warriors who were unable to fight.
vrm.6.73 Then, the mighty Indrajit, the leader of Rakshasas, covered all the quarters with hundreds of sharply pointed arrows, having splendour of the sun and tore asunder the Vanara chiefs.
vrm.6.73 Struck by the Indrajit’s arrows, shining brightly as fire, the Vanara commanders then looked like Kimshuka trees bearing crimson flowers.
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 Tearing asunder the principal Vanara warriors by maces and arrows, which were of golden colour, that Indrajit rained a multitude of showers of arrows equal to sun’s rays on Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.6.74 The army of Vanara leaders fainted.
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 Remembering the words of Jambavan, Hanuma the great Vanara with a terrific stride, suddenly saw Mount Himalaya too.
vrm.6.74 That Hanuma, the great Vanara, having crossed thousands of Yojanas, walked around that mountain, searching for the heavenly herbs.
vrm.6.74 Other Vanara warriors rose up.
vrm.6.74 By the fragrance of those most powerful herbs, all those Vanara warriors who were earlier dead were healed momentarily of their wounds, relieved of their pain, even as those who are asleep fully get up at the close of night.
vrm.6.75 The Vanara chiefs were commanded by Sugreeva as follows: “O Vanaras! Approaching the nearest gate, begin to wage the war.
vrm.6.75 Seeing those Vanara chiefs, standing at the gate, with flaming torches in their hands, Ravana was enraged with fury.
vrm.6.76 A great battle, causing hair to stand on end, was waged by the three Vanara chiefs who encountered the three excellent Rakshasas.
vrm.6.76 When that Prajangha of great splendour struck Anga, the excellent Vanara with a great strength on his forehead, Angada shuddered for a moment.
vrm.6.76 Suddenly struck by that arrow, that excellent Vanara possessing a splendour of Mount Trikuta, was perturbed, with his feet swaying to and fro and fell down throbbing.
vrm.6.76 As that blow of Kumbha’s arrow struck that Mainda, the Vanara chief, on his vital parts, he fell unconscious on the ground.
vrm.6.76 Seeing Angada the Vanara chief rushing upon him, Kumbha pierced his brows with his brows with his arrows, as an Elephant would be struck with flaming torches.
vrm.6.76 Seeing the unconquerable Angada fallen down and sinking into depression as though in an ocean, the Vanara chiefs informed the matter to Rama.
vrm.6.76 With an intent to defend Angada, the Vanara chiefs then holding trees and rocks in their hands and with their furious blood red eyes, rushed on.
vrm.6.76 The enraged Jambavan, Sushena and Vegadarshi, the Vanara ran up towards Kumbha the son of Kumbhakarna to attack him.
vrm.6.76 Seeing those mighty Vanara chiefs coming nearer to him, Kumbha covered them with a flood of arrows, as one would obstruct the course of a stream by means of a rock.
vrm.6.76 Reaching the range of his arrows, the great souled Vanara chiefs were unable even to look at him, much less advance towards him, any more than a great ocean would overstep its shore.
vrm.6.76 You have struck down these Vanara heroes possessing a terrific prowess.
vrm.6.77 Thus struck by him, the mighty Hanuma the Vanara chief clenched his fist forcibly.
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 "O Vanara! After killing her, I will make a short work of Rama, Lakshmana, yourself too, Sugreeva and that vulgar Vibhishana thereafter.
vrm.6.81 "O Vanara! What you have said just now viz.
vrm.6.82 That Hanuma, being surrounded by those Vanara chiefs on all sides, began to consume that army of adversaries as a flaming fire.
vrm.6.82 Filled with inordinate grief and rage, that Hanuma the Vanara chief, threw a large rock on Indrajit s chariot.
vrm.6.83 Saying “Yes, so be it” and surrounded by his own army, Jambavan came to the western gate, where the Vanara, Hanuma was.
vrm.6.86 Consuming that army of Rakshasas, as a fire at the time of universal dissolution, the aforesaid Vanara made that army unconscious on the battle field, with many trees.
vrm.6.86 He spoke the following words tohis charioteer: "Take the chariot to the place where that Vanara is standing.
vrm.6.89 Thus impelled by that illustrious Vibhishana, those Vanara chiefs were rejoiced and lashed their tails in a happy mood.
vrm.6.89 Seeing Indrajit with a despondent face, the Vanara chiefs were very much dejected and then acclaimed Lakshmana.
vrm.6.89 Then, four Vanara leaders named Pramathi, Rabhasa, Sharabha and Gandhamadana, getting impatient, acted hastily.
vrm.6.90 The enraged Indrajit also struck down hundreds and thousands of Vanara chiefs by using a multitude of arrows in the battle field.
vrm.6.90 Having struck Vibhishana, the leader of Rakshasas, with three arrows, Indrajit struck all those Vanara chiefs with a single arrow each.
vrm.6.90 Seeing that foremost among Rakshasas, who was unrivalled in battle, having been killed, the rejoiced Vanara chiefs applauded Lakshmana.
vrm.6.91 Let all others too among the gallant bear and Vanara warriors fighting with trees who have fought on the battle field here and stand pierced with arrows and owunded, be healed in the same way with great care.
vrm.6.91 As commanded by Rama, the great souled Sushena, the Vanara cheif gave an excellent medicine through nose to Lakshmana.
vrm.6.91 As per the order of Rama, Sushena then treated his companions like Vibhishana and others including all the Vanara chiefs.
vrm.6.93 Leaping and bouncing on the battle field, the Vanara chiefs broke off flag staffs, armours, chariots, Horses and various kinds of weapons.
vrm.6.93 A hundred Vanara chiefs rushed towards each single Rakshasa in the battle, even as Birds would rush towards a tree laden with fruits.
vrm.6.93 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.6.95 "With a multitude of plumed arrows joined with my bow, I will kill, by turns, the troops of Vanara chiefs today.
vrm.6.95 "With their faces transfixed with arrows, the Vanara leaders, lying on the battle field today will adorn the earth as with lotuses together with the stalks.
vrm.6.95 Whichever side Ravana was coming in his chariot on the battle field, his eyes rolling in anger, those Vanara warriors, on that side, could not with stand the rapidity of his arrows.
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 Then, seeing that Rakshasa escaping his blow, Sugreeva the Vanara king for his part, very much enraged.
vrm.6.96 That Vanara saw an opportunity to strike that Virupaksha.
vrm.6.98 That Rakshasa struck down the heads of Vanara chiefs from their trunks, as wind would throw down a fruit from its stalk.
vrm.6.99 "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.6.101 Having addressed the words thus to Rama, the highly learned Sushena spoke the following words to Hanuma the great Vanara, who was standing nearby: "Proceeding from this place with full speed, O gentle one!, to the mountain called Oushadhi Mahodaya, which was already described to you previously by Jambavan, O brave one! Bring here for restoring the great souled and heroic Lakshmana to consciousness, the precious herb Vishalyakarani by name which was sprung up on its southern peak, Savarnakarnani Samjivakarani and the precious herb, Samdhanakarani
vrm.6.101 All those Vanara chiefs and even the Gods were surprised to see that most difficult feat of Hanuma.
vrm.6.102 Seeing the Moon in the shape of Rama eclipsed by Rahu in the shape of Ravana, the Vanara chiefs too, along with Vibhishana, felt perturbed.
vrm.6.108 That arrow bestowed joy on the Vanara leaders and destroyed the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.112 Having embraced Sugreeva greeted by Lakshmana and having been honoured by the Vanara troops.
vrm.6.112 That mighty Lakshmana, then placing that pot in the hands of the Vanara chiefs, instructed them, who were as swift as thought, to bring sea water.
vrm.6.112 Thereupon, Rama spoke the following words to the valiant Hanuma the Vanara who was equal in size to a mountain and who was standing in humility, with his hands joined in salutation.
vrm.6.113 That Hanuma, the Vanara, known to Seetha, having entered the City of Lanka, seeking permission from Vibhishana, getting approval from him and entering Ashoka grove as per the prevailing regulation, saw at the foot of a tree, Seetha, who was bereft of freshness, looking joylessly like a frightened cow and surrounded with female Rakshasas.
vrm.6.113 Seeing her cool face, Hanuma the excellent Vanara began to narrate the entire message of Rama.
vrm.6.113 “O the foremost of Vanara! Who will be angry with servant maids, who are dependent on their king’s command and work in obedience to the orders of others?” “All this is reaped by me, as a consequence of my bad fortune or an account of a misdeed committed by me in the past.
vrm.6.114 Hearing the words of Rama, Lakshmana Sugreeva and Hanuma the Vanara then felt very much perturbed.
vrm.6.116 Why I, who was still in Lanka, was not abandoned then itself?" "O hero! Life would have been given up by me, when deserted by you immediately on hearing the message conveying your desertion before the eyes of the Vanara.
vrm.6.120 Thereupon, all those Vanara warriors got up, as if from a sleep, with all their limbs completely healed of wounds.
vrm.6.122 “Highly honoured in this way any duly cheered by you, acknowledging their services, the chiefs of Vanara troops, will feel happy.
vrm.6.122 Thereafter, having seen on that occasion all those commanders of Vanara troops honoured with precious stones and gold, Rama then mounted that excellent aerial car.
vrm.6.122 Hearing the words of Rama, the Vanara chiefs, the Vanaras, Vibhishana the Rakshasa and all of them there, with their joined palms, spoke as follows: “We also wish to proceed to Ayodhya.
vrm.6.123 Here, Dhumraksha was killed by Hanuma, the Vanara.
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 "O the king of Vanaras! Instruct all the Vanara chiefs to come to Ayodhya in the company of their wives.
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.6.124 Highly rejoiced who had conquered the heaven, those Vanara chiefs thereupon consumed at will, thousands of many of those wonderful fruits.
vrm.6.125 Having thus contemplated, the sagacious and the glorious Rama then cast his glimpse on the Vanaras and spoke to Hanuma, the Vanara as follows: “O the foremost of the Vanaras! Going with all speed to Ayodhya, find out whether the people there, are safe in the royal palace.
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 Jambavan, Hanuma, a Vanara called Vegadarshi and Rishabha brought water jars filled with water.
vrm.6.128 Looking towards Hanuma the Vanara, Seetha, daughter of Janaka, having taken off the pearl string from her neck, repeatedly caught the glimpse of all the Vanaras and her husband.
vrm.7.39 What Vanara else is capable of standing before thee ?However, O Ravana, Vali shall soon return after performing the Sandhya rites at the conluence of the four oceans; therefore wait here for a moment.
vrm.7.39 Thereupon thinking of the Vanara, the lord of Rakshasas, proud of his migth, essayed to catch him.
vrm.7.39 And having journeyed over many thousand leagues that huge Vanara, with his enemy, finished his prayers there and then proceeded to the eastern ocean.
vrm.7.39 Having gone through his Sandhya rites at the four oceans and carrying Ravana, that Vanara chief was greatly exhausted and therefore descended into the gardens of Kishkindha.
vrm.7.39 O hero !What heroic wight is there who is not exhausted by carrying me so vehemenly ?O Vanara, mind, wind and Garuda these three are gifted with the velocity.
vrm.7.40 When the Vanara host lost heart on beholding the ocean, Hanuman, consoling crossed over the deep extending over a hundred leagues.
vrm.7.41 No sooner the Patriarch Brahma, with his hands, wiped them of into the ground than a Vanara originated from those tears.
vrm.7.41 O foremost of men, as soon as that Vanara was produced, the high souled Brahma consoled him in sweet accents and said "Do thou proceed to that leading mountain where the Devas perpetually reside.
vrm.7.41 Having said this to Patriarch that Vanara immediately went to a forest abounding in fruits and flowers.
vrm.7.41 Beholding his own image there that Vanara chief, stricken with anger and anxiety thought "What arch enemy of mine is living in the waters? I shall destroy the excellent abode of the vicious souled one.
vrm.7.41 Thinking thus within himself, that Vanara, out of fickleness, jumped down into the lake.
vrm.7.41 And at the time of rising, O Rama, that leading Vanara found himself metamorphosed into a female form, which was highly charming, graceful and beautiful.
vrm.7.42 O king, the sun having risen after, that night Riksharaja again obtained his own real Vanara shape.
vrm.7.42 Having thus regained his Vanara form he made his two highly powerful sons, leading Vanaras, assuming shapes at will and having twany eyes, drink honey like nectar.
vrm.7.42 On beholding this Vanara chief, gifted with intelligence they shall be all subject to him.
vrm.7.42 And having entered there with the velocity of the wind, he, at the com mand of the Patriarch, crowned the leading Vanara Riksharaja as king.
vrm.7.42 All the Vanara, residing on earth consisting of seven insular continentsand bounded by ocean, came under his subjection.
vrm.7.50 I cannot, even at the sacrifice of my life, release myself from the debts of one good service out of the many, thou hast done for me, Vanara ;and I shall for ever remain indebted to thee for thy last benefaction.
