vrm.1.77 b, a All of the brides and bridegrooms clad in silks promptly worshipped the Gods in sanctums to the benedictory chanting of Vedic hymns and Ritual fires, thus they shone forth like the tongues of Holy Fires of Vedic Altars.
vrm.2.45 Oh, Dear child! The intellect of ours, which was forever engaged in perusing the study of Vedic texts has been now made to follow the course of exile to the forest
vrm.3.1 Overspread with Darbha, the sacred grass, and jute clothing, well pervaded with Vedic splendour and well glowing like the un seeable solar arena in the sky, with naked eye.
vrm.3.1 Those hermitages are sacrosanct for Ritual fire is being worshiped with fire oblations and sacrifices to the reverberating Vedic sounds, and they are enwrapped with lotus ponds with lotuses, and even with flowers of forest.
vrm.3.1 Rama has seen such a cluster of hermitages that is glistening forth just by the presence of holy saints whose sustenance is constrained, and that hermitage is distinctive like Brahma s abode, reverberating with the sounds of that Brahma s Vedic chants alone.
vrm.3.1 a But those sages who are austerely committed to vows, on their seeing Rama, the treader on the path of rectitude, and who is now arising like moon, and at Lakshmana and at glorious Seetha as well, rendered Vedic blessings and welcomed the trio.

vrm.3.24 The all pacific aspect of that Rama then in his exasperation appeared to be like that of the all ruinous Rudra, the wielder of bow called Pinaki, namely peaceful Shiva when enraged, at the time of Rudra s embarking on to ruin the Vedic ritual of Daksha Prajapati.
vrm.3.30 "You are atrocious in conduct because you countervail against Veda s, debased by conscience because you counteract to Vedic rituals, and you are countermanding Vedic procedures because you have always been bothersome to Brahmans, and those Brahmans becoming sceptical of your deeds of hindrance, they are hesitatingly consigning oblations into Ritual Fire, which are to be swiftly dropped into fire to the chants of hymns and even on time, hence you are countervailing against Veda s and counteracting to their rituals, and countermanding their procedures.
vrm.3.32 He who is a marksman of every divine missile, and an ever interdictor of Vedic rituals, and who on going to the city named Bhogavati, the capital of Naga s, and on defeating Vaasuki, has abducted the dear wife of Taksha on molesting her, and Shuurpanakha saw such a molester of others wives.

vrm.3.56 "It is impossible for a profaner to heavily tread on the Altar of Fire amidst a Ritual Hall surrounded by oblational vessels, further sanctified by Vedic hymns.
vrm.3.65 As no altruist can evoke indignation in a hallowed person who is performing Vedic ritual, honestly, these rivers, oceans, mountains, Deva, Gandharva, and Danavas too cannot evoke indignation in you, because they are always gentle to you.
vrm.3.68 you depart to those worlds that are destined for the virtuosos of Vedic rituals, and to those worlds that are destined for the practisers of ascesis amid Five Ritual fires, and to those that are destined for un retreating combatants, and to those worlds that destined for the donors of lands.

How do you wish to kill Seetha, abandoning your righteousness, in a bout of anger?" "O valiant king of Rakshasas! Why are you thinking of destroying a lady, ever since you completed the vow of celibacy essential for a study of the Vedic lore and were devoted to your own duty?"
