vrm.1.1 "Enthroning Vibhishana as the chieftain of Rakshasas in Lanka, then feeling that his task is fulfilled, Rama indeed rejoiced highly getting rid of febrility about any uncertainty of fulfilling his promises, excepting for Jatayu.
vrm.1.3 Crossing over the ocean by the boulder bridge built by Nala, and seizure of Lanka in night, and Vibhishana, the younger brother of Ravana, whom Ravana banished, comes to meet Rama, and his telling the scheme to kill Ravana to Rama.
vrm.1.3 Crowning of Vibhishana as the king of Lanka, after the demise of Ravana, and also Rama s seeing Pushpaka, the divine Aircraft, and returning to Ayodhya in that Aircraft.
vrm.3.17 "And the mighty Kumbhakarna who will always be in profound sleep is my brother, and the virtue souled Vibhishana too is my brother, but he does not behave like a Rakshasa, and two more bothers of mine are Khara and Duushana who are renowned for their bravery in war.
vrm.3.37 "Such as you are, you should firstly deliberate with all of your ministers that have a righteous bearing, duly keeping your brother Vibhishana at the helm of affairs, and then you take a decision on your own considering rights and wrongs of the case, and bearing in mind about your own strengths and weakness, and even on making sure of Raghava s capability in its reality, and then it will be apt of you to take up befitting action that will be conducive to your interests.
vrm.3.48 "All the Rakshasas will perforce get completely destroyed, oh, Ravana, for whom you the cruel and culpable one with uncontrolled senses is the king, and you will be blameworthy for the elimination of righteous Rakshasas like Vibhishana, et al.
vrm.5.6 Thereafter the great Hanuma leapt for the house of Kumbhakarna which resembled a cloud and in the same way for the house of Vibhishana.
vrm.5.27 "Among those Vibhishana is the only one who has been seen by me to be having a white umbrella, wearing white garlands and clothes and anointing body with white unguents.
vrm.5.27 Vibhishana" is there adorned with the sound of conch shells and kettledrums, with dances and songs, ascended a best Elephant equalling a mountain with the sound of a thundering cloud, with four tusks.
vrm.5.37 "Even when humbly entreated with continued exertion by Vibhishana his brother about my restoration to Rama, Ravana is not making up his mind to do so.
vrm.5.37 "O Hanuma! Nala, the eldest maiden daughter of Vibhishana, when she was sent personally to me by her mother, told me about this.
vrm.5.52 While it was ordered by the evil natured Ravana for the killing of Hanuma, Vibhishana did not agree to the killing of Hanuma, who was entrusted with the functions of a messenger.
vrm.5.52 Seeing Ravana getting enraged and looking to that affair of killing of an envoy that has arisen, Vibhishana who was firm in accompanying any object, reflected upon an appropriate action to be done.
vrm.5.52 Then, deciding about a right action, Vibhishana, who was silled in communication and a conqueror of enemies, spoke softly the following very meaningful and useful words to Ravana, his venerable borther.
vrm.5.52 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Ravana the lord of Rakshasas was greatly enraged and replied in the following words: "O Vibhishana, the annihilator of enemies! There is no sin, even if the sinners are killed.
vrm.5.52 Hearing those words, rooted in unrighteousness, enveloped in a great anger and accepted by the dishonourable, Vibhishana the best among those who weer endowed with understanding, spoke the following words, comprising of the highest truth.
vrm.5.52 Ravana, the mighty and the eminent among the kings of Rakshasas as also the lord of Nisacharas and the adversary of the world of Suras, understood the cherished and excellent message of Vibhishana his brother with his due presence of mind.
vrm.5.53 Hearing those words, which were aprropriate for that place and time, spoken by that hih souled Vibhishana, his brother, Ravana spoke the following words in reply:
vrm.5.54 Leaving the house of Vibhishana, Hanuma of great splendour, went successively to the houses of Rashmiketu, Surya shatru, Hrasvakarna, Damshtra, Romasha the Rakshasa, Yuddhonmatta, Matta, Dhvajagreeva the Rakshasa, the terrific Vidyujjihva, Hastimukha, Karala, Pishacha, Shonitaksha, Kumbhakarna, Makaraksha, Yajnashatru, Brahmashatru, Narantaka, Kumbha as also the evil minded Nikumbha and burnt the houses.
vrm.5.58 "Then, there is the brother of that Ravana, called Vibhishana having a great intelligence.
vrm.5.58 "Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Ravana ordered those Rakshasas to burn my tail by fire.
vrm.6.9 Vibhishana Ravanas youngest half brother restraining all those who were made to seize weapons, were made to sit again by saluting them with joined palms and spoke as follows: Dear brother! That act which cannot be accomplished by three well known strategies viz
vrm.6.10 Vibhishana, who always arrived at a settlement in matters of virtue, pleasure and wealth and who was terrible in his act, on arrival of the dawn, entered the palace of Ravana.
vrm.6.10 The valiant Vibhishana with great splendour entered that mansion of his elder brother, Ravana, like the sun with rays outstretched with splendour entering a big cloud.
vrm.6.10 Vibhishana with great radiance, heard the auspicious sounds of felicitous recital of prayers uttered by the knowers of Vedas scriptural texts, wishing for the victory of his brother.
vrm.6.10 Vibhishana of great strength, saw Brahmins who know Mantras sacred texts and Brahmanas, respected and offered with pots filled of curd, clarified butter as well as with flowers and unbroken rice.
vrm.6.10 The mighty armed Vibhishana, being adored by the deomons and shining by his own splendour, offered salutation to Ravana the younger brother of Kubera who occupied the throne.
vrm.6.10 Practicing customary formalities, Vibhishana who knew the code of conduct, obtained a seat adorned with gold, as endowed to him by a glance of the king.
vrm.6.10 In the presence of ministers and in privation, Vibhishana spoke to powerful Ravana the words convinced of reason and which were very much beneficial.
vrm.6.10 Vibhishana, who could discriminate between good and evil things in the world, having sought the favour from his eldest half brother by means of soothing words arranged in an order, spoke in consonance with place, time and purpose.
vrm.6.10 Vibhishana, the half bother spoke these beneficial words to Ravana, the best among Rakshasas in the midst of his half brothers ministers.
vrm.6.10 How Rama even along with Indra and the Devas can stand before me in battle? Ravana, who annihilated the army of Devas and who was very powerful with an impetuous valour, thus spoke and then sent away Vibhishana, who had spoken honestly.
vrm.6.11 That sinful Ravana, infatuated by his desire for Seetha, became emaciated by his sinful action and by his despising of well disposed people like Vibhishana.
vrm.6.11 The high souled and illustrious Vibhishana ascended an excellent auspicious and spacious chariot yoked with good Horses with its various parts decked in gold and drove towards the assembly hall of Ravana his elder brother.
vrm.6.11 Then, that younger brother Vibhishana told Ravana his name and offered salutation to the feet.
vrm.6.14 Hearing the words of Ravana the king of Rakshasas and the growls of Kumbhakarna, Vibhishana spoke the following friendly and meaningful words to Ravana the foremost king of Rakshasas: By whom, O, king, has been wrapped around your neck, this great serpent of gigantic body called Sita, with heap of expended hoods as her bosom, having poison as her anxiety and with sharp fangs as her sweet smile and with five hoods as her five fingers.
vrm.6.14 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Prahasta spoke as follows: We are not knowing of fear at all.
vrm.6.14 When such is the case, how can we have fear from Rama, the son of a human king at any time in battle? Vibhishana who desired the welfare of the king and who possessed a stable mind in virtue wealth and pleasure, after hearing the inimical words of Prahasta, spoke highly meaningful words as follows: O, Prahasta! The series of actions king or Mahodara as also yourself and Kumbhakarna propose to take against Rama are impossible of being accomplished, any more than going to heaven by wicked minded persons.
vrm.6.15 Carefully hearing the words of Vibhishana, whose intellect was equal to that of Brihaspati the high spirited Indrajit, the chief of army of Rakshasas spoke as follows:
vrm.6.15 In our race, this Vibhishana the youngest uncle is the only individual lacking in strength, heroism, prowess, courage, valor and vital powers W.
vrm.6.15 How can I, with great valor, who suppressed the arrogance of even the Devas and who made the lives of even excellent of the Daityas miserable, not capable of conquering the two princes who are ordinary human beings? Hearing those words of Indrajit, who was equal to Indra, dangerous to be approached, and possessing great vital power, Vibhishana the excellent one among bearers of weapons spoke then the following highly meaningful words:
vrm.6.16 Ravana, goaded by death, spoke the following harsh words to Vibhishana, who was very stable and who had spoken wholesome words: One can stay together with an enemy or even with a furious snake, but one cannot stay together with an adversary yet avowing himself as a friend" O, Rakshasa! I know the conduct of kinsmen in all the worlds.
vrm.6.16 Hearing those harsh words from Ravana, Vibhishana who advocates justice, wielding a mace in his hand, soared high into the sky, along with four other Rakshasas.
vrm.6.16 Then, the illustrious Vibhishana who became angry also spoke these words to king Ravana, his brother after moving into the sky.
vrm.6.17 Having spoken the aforesaid harsh words to Ravana, Vibhishana arrived almost immediately to the place where Rama was together with Lakshmana.
vrm.6.17 Those leaders of Vanaras standing on the ground saw Vibhishana, resembling the peak of Mount Meru and shining like a thunderbolt in the sky.
vrm.6.17 Vibhishana also resembled a mass of cloud, the equal of the God who wields the thunderbolt.
vrm.6.17 Sugriva the valiant of Vanaras, who was difficult to be overpowered, having seen Vibhishana, the fifth one along with four others, became thoughtful along with Vanaras.
vrm.6.17 Hearing Sugrivas words, all those excellent Vanaras lifted trees and mountains and spoke as follows: Do you swiftly order us to slay these wicked doers, O, king? Let us strike these fools down so that they drop to the ground! While the Vanaras were speaking thus among one another, Vibhishana had reached the northern shore and indeed coolly halted there.
vrm.6.17 That great and highly intelligent Vibhishana, halting in the sky itself, saw Sugriva and those Vanaras and spoke to them in a loud voice as follows: There is a Rakshasa called Ravana, the king of Rakshasas, having a bad conduct.
vrm.6.17 I am his younger brother, known as Vibhishana.
vrm.6.17 Inform immediately to high soled Rama, the protector of all the worlds, that I, Vibhishana, have come here.
vrm.6.17 The swift paced Sugriva, having heard the words of Vibhishana, spoke more hurriedly to Rama, in front of Lakshmana as follows: Belonging to the enemy force, here is an adversary taking us unawares, who unexpectedly has come here to slay us at the first opportunity like an owl destroying Crows! O, annihilator of enemies! You ought to be aware of the design, distribution, leading of the army and the secret service of the Vanaras and also of your foes.
vrm.6.17 How can we keep trust in him?" The younger brother of the famous Ravana, called Vibhishana along with four other Rakshasas approached you for refuge.
vrm.6.17 O, the excellent one among men knowing what is right! Know that Ravana is sending Vibhishana.
vrm.6.17 I opine that Vibhishana is fit for arrest.
vrm.6.17 This Vibhishana is indeed the brother of cruel Ravana.
vrm.6.17 Hearing those words of Sugriva, the exceedingly strong Rama addressed as follows to the Vanaras in front of Hanuman staying near by: The very reasonable words uttered by Sugriva about Vibhishana were heard by you too.
vrm.6.17 Having spoken thus by the Vanaras, Angada the intelligent Vanara told Rama to arrange for examination of Vibhishana before hand.
vrm.6.17 Vibhishana who came from an enemy is indeed to be doubted by all means.
vrm.6.17 Then, the discerning Jambavan on his part, perceiving the matter through his learning derived from scriptures, advised the following fault less and qualitative words: This Vibhishana came from sinful Ravana who has contracted hostility with you and that too at a wrong place and time.
vrm.6.17 Then Mainda, skilled in discriminating good and bad conduct in others observed the matter carefully and spoke in his perfect oratory in the following highly reasonable words: O, king of kings! This Vibhishana is indeed the younger brother of that Ravana.
vrm.6.17 I am perceiving an error in what was advised by your counselors assigned to look into advantages and disadvantages, accruing from accepting Vibhishana.
vrm.6.17 What ever was told by your counselors that it was befitting to send spies to Vibhishana, that action is not possible due to impracticality of the proposition.
vrm.6.17 It has been said that Vibhishana came into a wrong place and time.
vrm.6.17 O, king! Whatever was told by your counselors that let Vibhishana be questioned by spies of unknown identity, my considered view is as follows: A wise man being questioned suddenly would be apprehensive of that questioning.
vrm.6.18 Thereafter the inviolable Rama who possesses sacred knowledge, after hearing Hanumans words, spoke with a clear understanding, the following opinion that was firm in his mind: I also wish to tell my opinion about Vibhishana.
vrm.6.18 Further, Vibhishana the Rakshasa is desirous of acquiring the kingdom.
vrm.6.18 That is why, Vibhishana is acceptable.
vrm.6.18 That is why, Vibhishana can be accepted.
vrm.6.18 O, Rama the excellent among the tolerant! Realise that Ravana has sent Vibhishana, the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.18 Is not Vibhishana the brother of cruel Ravana? Speaking thus to Rama, the best of Raghu dynasty, Sugreeva who knew the mode of expression, thereafter kept silent.
vrm.6.18 This is my solemn pledge O, Sugreeva, the chief of Vanaras! Let him either be Vibhishana or even Ravana himself I have given an assurance of safety to him.
vrm.6.18 Hearing Rama s words, Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras, overwhelmed as he was with cordial friendship, replied to Rama as follows: O, Rama, who knows righteousness, the crest jewel among lords of the world! What surprise is there in thinking that you, duly endowed with true essence of life and established in a right path, speak these venerable words? My inmost spirit also feels Vibhishana to be a genuine person, he being well examined from all angles, by act of inference and by his appearance.
vrm.6.18 O, Rama! Hence, let the highly wise Vibhishana be equal among us soon together.
vrm.6.18 Let him get our friendship too Hearing those words of Sugreeva, Rama the king of men, as acknowledged by Sugreeva, held meeting with Vibhishana, as Indra once met Garuda the king of Birds.
vrm.6.19 While the assurance of protection having been given to Rama, the highly sagacious Vibhishana the brother of Ravana bent down and glanced towards the earth.
vrm.6.19 The virtuous Vibhishana descended joyously from the sky to the ground along with his faithful companions and alighted in the vicinity of Rama.
vrm.6.19 Thereafter, Vibhishana along with the four Rakshasas fell prostrate and spoke to Rama the following words which were equitable suitable and delightful.
vrm.6.19 Hearing those words of Vibhishana, Rama in a soothing tone and with a refreshing look in his eyes, spoke these words: Tell me really the strengths and weaknesses of the Rakshasas.
vrm.6.19 Thus asked then by Rama who was unwearied in action, Vibhishana started telling about the detailed strength of Ravana.
vrm.6.19 Hearing the aforesaid words of Vibhishana, Rama scrutinized them all attentively and spoke the following words: O, Vibhishana! I indeed know those feats standing to the credit of Ravana, which were told by you, as true.
vrm.6.19 Hearing the words of that Rama, who was unwearied in action, the right minded Vibhishana saluted him by bowing his head and started telling as follows:
vrm.6.19 Rama on his part, duly delighted, embraced Vibhishana who was speaking as aforesaid and spoke to Lakshmana as follows: Bring some water from the ocean.
vrm.6.19 O, Lakshmana who bestows honor on others! Quickly consecrate as a king of Rakshasas this greatly intelligent Vibhishana with that water, so that I am pleased.
vrm.6.19 Hearing Ramas words, Lakshmana consecrated Vibhishana as a king, as per the royal instructions, amidst the leaders of Vanaras.
vrm.6.19 Hanuman and Sugreeva asked Vibhishana as follows: How can we cross the imperturbable ocean, the habitation of Varuna, by all of us along with our army of Vanaras possessing a great splendor? In what manner shall we along with the army swiftly cross the sea, the lord of streams and rivers, and arrive at that strategy?
vrm.6.19 Hearing their words, the right minded Vibhishana replied as follows: It is apt if prince Rama seeks ocean as his refuge This immeasurable great ocean was excavated by Sagara
vrm.6.19 Hearing the aforesaid words of the learned Rakshasa Vibhishana, Sugreeva came to the place where Rama and Lakshmana were there.
vrm.6.19 The long necked Sugreeva then started to tell the auspicious words of Vibhishana, advising Rama to approach the ocean to allow him a passage.
vrm.6.19 Full of respect for Vibhishanas words, he told him as also his brother Lakshmana smilingly as follows: O, Lakshmana! This idea of Vibhishana is agreeable to me.
vrm.6.22 Vibhishana, wielding a mace in his hand, stood up on the seashore along with his ministers, for the purpose of invading the enemies.
vrm.6.23 All those excellent Vanaras, together with Vibhishana and Sugriva making roaring sounds surged forth for the destruction of the audacious enemies.
vrm.6.25 Vibhishana with great splendour beheld both of them in disguise.
vrm.6.25 Otherwise, Vibhishana will show it to you again entirely.
vrm.6.25 "O, Vibhishana! Always try to draw a bow string on the opponents and not on these two Rakshasas.
vrm.6.25 "O, king of Rakshasas! We were seized by Vibhishana with the intention of killing us.
vrm.6.25 "Where the four eminent persons who are equal to the protector of the worlds, the valiant ones skilled in the use of weapons and of proven prowess namely Rama the son of Dasaratha, the illustrious Lakshmana, the great resplendent Vibhishana and Sgreeva whose valour is equal to Indra arestationed at the same place, they can pluck up the city of Lanka with its ramparts and arches and transplant it elswhere, even if all the Vanaras keep aloof.
vrm.6.28 He who is standing there, taking guard at the left side of Rama, surrounded by a troop of Rakshasas he is the king Vibhishana.
vrm.6.28 This Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, having great strength and valour, always surrounded by a colossal army, is approaching you to make war, accompanied by the valiant Vibhishana and the ministers, as also a hundred thousand crores of Shankas, a thousand Mahashankus, a hundred Vrindas, a thousand mahavrindas, a hundred padmas, a thousand Mahapadmas, a hundred kharves, samudras and Mahaughas of the same number, and a crore of Mahanghas wholearmy as such is identical of an ocean.
vrm.6.29 Beholding those foremost of Vanara leaders pointed out by Shuka the most valiant Lakshmana Ramas right arm, his own brother Vibhishana standing close to Rama, the terribly powerful Sugreeva the king of all Vanaras, the strong Angada grandson of Indra the wielder of thunderbolt, the powerful Hanuman, the imincible Jambavan, Sushena, Kumuda, Nila, Nala the excellent of Vanaras, Gaja, Gavaksha, Sharabha, Mainda and Dvivida that Ravana his heart became agitated a little, was enraged and then abused those two heroes Shuka and Sarana who had completed their report.
vrm.6.29 Having gone in a disguised manner, those spies saw Rama and Lakshmana together with Sugreeva and Vibhishana in the neighbourhood of Mountain Suvela.
vrm.6.29 However, they were observed by the high souled Vibhishana the Lord of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.29 Accidentally, the deomons there were caught by Vibhishana, who said that the Rakshasa Shardula among them was wicked and got him alone seized.
vrm.6.30 I was seized forcibly by the Rakshasas forming the retinue of Vibhishana, who investigated me in various ways.
vrm.6.30 "There is the prince of Rakshasas Vibhishana, your brother, who having secured the city of Lanka as a prospective gift from Rama remains devoted to the good of Rama.
vrm.6.31 Fortunately, Vibhishana was over leaped and held captive.
vrm.6.37 Meanwhile, Rama the king of men and Sugreeva the Sovereign of Vanaras, Hanuman the son of Vayu, Jambavan the king of the Rikshas, Vibhishana the Rakshasa, Angada the son of Vali, Lakshmana, Sushena along with his kinsfolk, Mainda, Dvivida, Gaja, Gavaksha, Kumuda, Nala and Panasa, all having reached the enemy s territory, assembled to take counsel together.
vrm.6.37 While they were talking thus, Vibhishana the younger brother of Ravana spoke the following meaningful and polished words:
vrm.6.37 The mighty armed Vibhishana showed those counsellors to Rama after reporting the aforesaid news pertaining to Lanka, thus informed by his counsellors.
vrm.6.37 The counsellors of Vibhishana themselves confirmed all that was known regarding Lanka.
vrm.6.37 Thereafter, the illustrious Vibhishana, in his desire to please Rama, addressed that lotus eyed one, further with the following words: "O, Rama! When Ravana attacked Kubera in battle, sixty lacs of Rakshasas sallied forth with him.
vrm.6.37 Vibhishana having spoken thus Rama gave the following orders for the attack of the adversaries.
vrm.6.37 "Let the mighty Sugreeva the king of Vanaras, the valiant Jambavan the king of Riksha and Vibhishana, the younger brother of the Lord of Rakshasas occupy the central position of the army.
vrm.6.37 Seven of us will attack the foe in our human form, I, my brother Lakshmana, who is full of valour, my friend Vibhishana and his four companions.
vrm.6.37 Having said thus to Vibhishana for the success of the enterprise, Rama in the role of a wise leader, decided to stay on Mount Suvela, after observing its charming slopes.
vrm.6.38 Rama, who was followed by Lakshmana, having made up his mind to ascend Mount Suvela, spoke in a gentle and prime voice to Sugreeva and to Vibhishana who was the knower of what is right, a Rakshasa devoted to him who was experienced in counsel and a knower of prescribed rules as follows:
vrm.6.38 Lakshmana too who took delight in his own valour and steadfastness, keeping ready his mighty bow with arrows, followed behind Rama Sugreeva along with his ministers and Vibhishana ascended the mountain, by following him.
vrm.6.38 Thereafter, Rama along with Lakshmana as well as Sugreeva the Lord of Vanaras together with troops and captions of troops, duly greeted welcomingly and treated hospitably by Vibhishana, halted happily on the mountain resort of Suvela.
vrm.6.41 O, warrior longing for acts of daring! This wrong and reckless act has been done by you, causing me, this army and Vibhishana great anxiety.
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 Then, Vibhishana, Sugreeva, Hanuman, Jambavan the king of Rikshas, Nala, Nila and Lakshmana accompanied that Rama.
vrm.6.41 Meanwhile, under Ramas command, Lakshmana along with Vibhishana distributed a crore each of his Vanaras at each gate.
vrm.6.41 Calling to his mind the duty of the kings, Rama who was eager to undertake what was to be done next, in concurrence with Vibhishana, summoned Angada the son of Vali and spoke as follows: Go my gentle Angada on my behalf and, passing thought the city of Lanka without fear and anxiety and Lanka without fear and anxiety and approaching Ravana the unfortunate Rakshasa devoid of sovereignty and who has lost his splendour because of his inclination to die admonish him in the following words: O, Ravana the Ranger of the Night! In your reckless arrogance, sages, Devas, Gandharvas, Apsaras, Nagas, Yakshas and kings have been oppressed by you.
vrm.6.41 This pious minded Vibhishana, the foremost of Rakshasas has come to me.
vrm.6.41 If you do not restore Seetha honourably, by bowing respectfully before me, you are slain and Vibhishana will become the king.
vrm.6.42 Vibhishana of great energy with mace in hand, clad in defensive armour and accompanied by his watchful ministers, took his position where the mighty Rama is stationed.
vrm.6.43 The Rakshasa with great fury, Vibhishana the younger brother of Ravana confronted with Shatrughna possessing fiery velocity in battle.
vrm.6.44 Seeing the enemy defeated, those Vanaras along with Sugreeva and Vibhishana were delighted and praised Angada as an efficient warrior.
vrm.6.46 Then, along with Sugreeva, Vibhishana came to that place, after Indrajit finished his work and retired even as Indra would, after raining.
vrm.6.46 Seeing the two Raghavas, pierced by a multitude of arrows, all the Vanaras along with Vibhishana became perturbed.
vrm.6.46 Vibhishana, beholding by his magic arts, saw that nephew, standing nearby, duly hidden by his occult power.
vrm.6.46 Althought that warrior who had no peer in the field and who had unique exploits, had made himself invisible by virtue of the boon he had received, he was recognized by Vibhishana, who was full of energy, glory and prowess.
vrm.6.46 Vibhishana then spoke to that Sugreeva, who was frightened, whose eyes were filled with tears, looking helpless and whose eyes were agitated in grief.
vrm.6.46 Thus speaking, Vibhishana then wiped the charming eyes of Sugreeva with his hand moistened in water.
vrm.6.46 Then, the pious minded Vibhishana took water, enchanted it with an incantation and wiped the eyes of Sugreeva.
vrm.6.46 Having dried the face of the wise Sugreeva Vibhishana spoke the following words full of good sense and comfort.
vrm.6.46 Having emboldened Sugreeva, Vibhishana the foremost of Rakshasas once again reassured that army of Vanaras, who were pushing away.
vrm.6.49 "Those vain words uttered by me, will ndoubtedly consume me since I have not made Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.49 Meanwhile, Vibhishana having established order in all the ranks, with mace in his hand, came quickly to Rama.
vrm.6.50 In the midst of this turmoil, the valiant Vibhishana, wielding a mace in his hand came there and cheered Sugreeva and Rama saying Victory" to Rama! Victory to Rama!.
vrm.6.50 Observing Vibhishana to be the cause of panic among the Vanaras, Sugreeva spoke to the illustrious Jambavan the king of Rikshas who stood near as follows:
vrm.6.50 "It is Vibhishana who has come here.
vrm.6.50 "You reassemble those Vanaras immediately, who in fear have scattered in many directions and inform them that it is Vibhishana who has come!" Thus spoken by Sugreeva, Jambavan the king of Rikshas called the fugitive Vanaras back and restored them to confidence.
vrm.6.50 Hearing the words of Jambavan the king of Rikshas, all those Vanaras, on perceiving Vibhishana, retraced their steps, shaking off their fear.
vrm.6.50 Meanwhile, the virtuous Vibhishana, on beholding Rama s body as also of Lakshmana s covered with arrows, felt distressed.
vrm.6.50 Washing their eyes with his hands dipped in water, Vibhishana began to weap, with anguish seizing his heart and lamented, saying:
vrm.6.50 Then, Sugreeva the magnanimous King of Vanaras embraced that Vibhishana thus lamenting and spoke the following words: "O, knower of what is right! You shall certainly reign over Lanka.
vrm.6.50 Consoling and convincing Vibhishana thus, Sugreeva spoke to Sushena, his father in law, who was on his side as follows: "Taking these two brothers, Rama and Lakshmana with the troops of Vanaras who are strong, you go to Kishkindha, till these two scourgers of their foes have recovered their consciousness.
vrm.6.56 Then, the troops of deities along with Rama himself, the exceedingly strong Lakshmana, Sugreeva and other Vanaras and the mighty Vibhishana paid homage to Hanuman.
vrm.6.58 Seeing Prahasta setting out with a martial ardour, Rama the conqueror of enemies, smiling, spoke to Vibhishana as follows: "Who is he with a very huge body, coming with a great speed along with a large army? O, the mighty armed! Tell me about this strong Rakshasa.
vrm.6.58 Hearing Rama s words, Vibhishana replied as follows "He is guarded by two thirds of the army of Lanka.
vrm.6.59 Seeing that army of Rakshasas who were excessively furious, Rama whose arms resembled great serpents, accompanied by his forces and having great fortune, spoke to Vibhishana the best among the wielders of weapons as follows: Who is in command of this army, furnished with every kind of
vrm.6.59 standard, banner and canopy, armed with javelins, swords, stakes and other weapons and missiles and composed of imperturbable soldiers and Elephants as high as the Mahendra Mountain? Hearing the words of Rama, Vibhishana the equal of Indra in valour, then narrated to Rama about the choicest army of the foremost among Rakshasas of the highest peculiarity as follows:
vrm.6.59 Then, Rama the annihilator of enemies, answered Vibhishana and said Alas! What glory, what majesty is Ravana s the Lord of Rakshasas! Ravana is beaming like the sun with his rays difficult to be gazed, neither can the eye rest on him such is the binding strength of his magnificence!
vrm.6.61 Thus asked by Rama the prince, who was unweary in action, the highly intelligent Vibhishana replied to Rama as follows: "He is the powerful Kumbhakarna, the son of Visravasa.
vrm.6.61 On hearing Vibhishana s words, which were well founded to make the Vanaras well inclined to fight the battle, Rama then spoke the follwoing words to neela, the chief of army:
vrm.6.68 O Kumbhakarna! Now that you are dead, how can I conquer Indra?" "Those words of that great souled Vibhishana, which I did not accept due to ignorance, have come true.
vrm.6.68 "Since that venerable Vibhishana, my pious brother was banished by me, this bitter fruit of that painful deed has come to me.
vrm.6.71 Seeing that Atikaya, having a colossal body, Rama for his part was quite surprised and after consoling the Vanaras, spoke to Vibhishana as follows: Who is he, resembling a mountain in size, armed with a bow, brown eyed and seated in a spacious chariot yoked with a thousand Horses?
vrm.6.71 Thus asked by Rama, the prince having an unlimited splendour, that Vibhishana of great brilliance, replied to Rama as follows: The ten necked king Ravana, having great brilliance, the brother of Kubera, doing terrific deeds and possessing a great power, is the lord of Rakshasas.
vrm.6.72 I do not find any Rakshasa, who can destroy the valiant Rama along with Lakshmana, Sugreeva and Vibhishana accompanied by their army in battle now.
vrm.6.74 Seeing the entire army looking worried, Vibhishana, the best among the intelligent ones, spoke the following matchless words, consoling the warriors of Sugreeva, the lord of Vanaras: Honouring the spell sacred of Brahma the creator, the two sons of the venerable Dasaratha have actually lost their free will and became dejected and have allowed themselves to be knocked down by the missiles of Indrajit.
vrm.6.74 Then, the intelligent Hanuma, the son of Vayu, paying honour to the missile presided over by Brahma and hearing the words of Vibhishana, spoke the following words: Let us restore to confidence whosoever is in this army of energetic Vanaras, after having been struck by the missile.
vrm.6.74 Both those valiant ones, Hanuma and Vibhishana, together at that time of the night, roamed about in the battle front, with torches in their hands.
vrm.6.74 Hanuma and Vibhishana saw the battle field, covered on all sides, with mountain sized Vanaras fallen with heir tails, arms, thighs, feet, fingers and heaps of heads fractured with blood oozing from their limbs and urine flowing out.
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 Hanuma, along with Vibhishana, began to search for Jambavan, while looking at the terrific army wounded by the arrows which appeared like the tide of an ocean.
vrm.6.74 Looking at Jambavan, the son of Brahma, who was naturally bequeathed with old age, an elderly person, with his body conspicuous of hundreds of arrows and a valiant person looking like an extinguishing fire, Vibhishana approached him and spoke as follows: O Vibhishana, the leader of Rakshasas, with a great prowess! I am able to recognize you by your voice alone.
vrm.6.74 O Vibhishana, of good manners! Does Hanuma, the foremost among Vanaras, because of whom, Anjana his mother and the wind god are his blessed parents survive, holding his life any where nearby?
vrm.6.74 Hearing the words of Jambavan, Vibhishana spoke the following words, why do you enquire about Hanuman, passing over the venerable sons of Dasaratha? O venerable one! The exceptional affection, you are showing towards Hanuma, is not being shown towards Sugreeva or Angada or even Rama.
vrm.6.74 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Jambavan replied as follows: O the foremost among Rakshasas! Listen to me, why I am enquiring about Hanuma.
vrm.6.74 Having offered salutation to the illustrious Vanaras there with his head bent low, he then embraced Vibhishana By inhaling that fragrance of those great herbs, both Rama and Lakshmana became healed of their wounds then and there.
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.6.84 While Lakshmana, who was so fond of his brother, was consoling Rama, Vibhishana, keeping the troops of simian army in their respective positions, arrived there.
vrm.6.84 That Vibhishana, surrounded by four warriors, wielding many types of weapons, and who were chiefs of troops, looking like heaps of black collyrium and who were appearing like Elephants, approached Lakshmana who was totally engrossed in sorrow and saw the Vanaras also, whose eyes were filled with tears.
vrm.6.84 Vibhishana also saw the great souled Rama, the delight of Ikshvaku dynasty fallen into a swoon and resting on the lap of Lakshmana.
vrm.6.84 On seeing the embarrassed Rama, tormented with grief, that Vibhishana, distressed as he was in spirits, with agony inside, asked him, What is this?
vrm.6.84 Intercepting the narrating Lakshmana in the middle, Vibhishana spoke the following amply meaningful words to Rama, who was in an unconscious state.
vrm.6.85 Hearing those words of Vibhishana, Rama, agonized as he was with grief, could not understand clearly what was spoken by that Rakshasa.
vrm.6.85 Then, Rama the conqueror of the cities of enemies, leaning upon his courage, spoke to Vibhishana who was sitting nearby and in front of the Vanaras as follows:
vrm.6.85 Hearing those words of Rama, spoken very sadly, that Vibhishana who was skilled in expression, again spoke his words gently as follows: "O the long armed hero! Immediately after your orders, the marshalling of the troops was done by me in the manner as enjoined by you.
vrm.6.85 Hearing the words of Indrajit, Rama then spoke the following words:"O Vibhishana of true prowess! I know the conjuring trick of that terrific Rakshasa.
vrm.6.85 "The great souled Vibhishana, who knows all the conjuring tricks of Indrajit, along with his counsellors, will follow behind you.
vrm.6.85 Hearing the words of Rama, Lakshmana of highly wonderful prowess, along with Vibhishana, took hold of his excellent bow.
vrm.6.85 Having obtained the blessings from his brother, the glorious Lakshmana, the prince, quickly sallied forth along with Vibhishana.
vrm.6.85 Then, Hanuma accompanied by many a thousand of Vanaras and Vibhishana along with his counsellors went behind Lakshmana.
vrm.6.85 The valiant Lakshmana stood there along with Vibhishana, the heroic Angada and Hanuma, the son of Marut.
vrm.6.86 In that situation, Vibhishana then spoke the following words, which were hostile to the enemies and advantageous to Lakshmana.
vrm.6.86 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Lakshmana, having auspicious marks, showered forth streams of arrows in the direction of Indrajit.
vrm.6.86 Vibhishana told Lakshmana in the following words that while with bow upraised, Indrajit sought to kill Hanuma.
vrm.6.86 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, who was fearful to his adversaries, the great souled Lakshmana saw Indrajit, who closely resembled a mountain, seated in a chariot, of terrific strength and who was difficult to approach.
vrm.6.87 After speaking to him as aforesaid, Vibhishana taking Lakshmana, who held a bow in his hand, felt rejoiced and hastened away.
vrm.6.87 Moving not very distant from there and entering an extensive thicket, Vibhishana showed to Lakshmana, the place where Indrajit was going to pour oblations into the sacred fire.
vrm.6.87 The glorious Vibhishana showed a terribly looking banyan tree, appearing like a blace cloud and spoke as follows.
vrm.6.87 Thus spoken by Lakshmana, Indrajit with a great brilliance and high mindedness, seeing Vibhishana there, spoke the following harsh words to him:
vrm.6.87 Hearing the words of Indrajit, his brother s son, Vibhishana replied: "O Rakshasa! Why do you speak perversely, as though you are not aware of my nature.
vrm.6.88 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Indrajit was excited with rage, spoke harsh words and rushed forward in fury.
vrm.6.88 Indrajit hurriedly spoke to those foremost of Vanaras and to this Lakshmana, who ascended Hanumas back with a splendor of the sun shining on Mount Udaya and also with Vibhishana as follows: You behold my prowess now.
vrm.6.88 Seeing Indrajit the son of Ravana pale faced, Vibhishana spoke as follows to Lakshmana, who was fully absorbed in the fight.
vrm.6.88 Then, the valiant Indrajit with anger and with twice as much vehemence, wounded Vibhishana with a hundred well aimed arrows.
vrm.6.88 Then, to relieve martial weariness of Lakshmana, who did not experience defeat in any facet of war, the great souled Vibhishana, offering agreeable and salutary words, took up his position, on reaching the battle field.
vrm.6.89 Seeing Lakshmana and Indrajit, fighting with commitment to gain victory one over the other, like Elephants in rut, that strong and valiant Vibhishana, wielding his excellent bow, stood there at the battle front, with an intent to behold their combat.
vrm.6.89 Standing there thus, Vibhishana stretched his great bow and released excellent sharp pointed arrow son those Rakshasas.
vrm.6.89 Even the foremost of Rakshasas, the attendants of Vibhishana too, rent asunder those valiant demns in battle, with pikes, sowrds and sharp edged spears.
vrm.6.89 Surrounded by those Rakshasas, Vibhishana shone like an Elephant in the midst of proud young tuskers.
vrm.6.89 Vibhishana, who knew the timing, spoke to the Vanaras, who cherished to destroy the Rakshasas, the following opportune words duly inspiring them.
vrm.6.89 Thus impelled by that illustrious Vibhishana, those Vanara chiefs were rejoiced and lashed their tails in a happy mood.
vrm.6.90 Moving out form the City with his swift Horses, that indrajit, the destroyer of valiant enemies, attacked Lakshmana and Vibhishana.
vrm.6.90 Seeing Indrajit seated in the chariot, Lakshmana, the mighty Vanaras and Vibhishana the Rakshasa then were very much surprised on recalling the alacrity of the intelligent Indrajit.
vrm.6.90 Then, Indrajit, filled with martial anger, struck Vibhishana in his auspicious face, with three arrows.
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 Very much enraged with him, that Vibhishana of great splendor killed the Horses of that evil minded Indrajit with his mace.
vrm.6.90 Seeing that Javelin rushing towards Vibhishana, Lakshmana tore it into ten pieces with his sharp arrows and felled it on the floor.
vrm.6.90 The strong bodied Vibhishana, in anger, dug five arrows, whose impact was a hard as that of a thunder bolt, into the bosom of Indrajit, whose Horses were already killed.
vrm.6.90 As Indrajit was killed, all those Vanaras together with Vibhishana roared in rejoice, as the Devas did, when Vritra was killed.
vrm.6.90 Vibhishana, Hanuma and Jambavan the chief of Rikshas were pleased at Lakshmana for his victor and applauded him too.
vrm.6.91 Then, the rejoiced Vibhishana informed in a clear tone to Rama that Indrajit s head had been chopped off by the great souled Lakshmana.
vrm.6.91 Vibhishana and Hanuma too performed a great feat in the great battle.
vrm.6.91 Let Lakshmana along with Vibhishana be quickly made free from pain caused by the arrows that have penetrated into their body.
vrm.6.91 As per the order of Rama, Sushena then treated his companions like Vibhishana and others including all the Vanara chiefs.
vrm.6.91 Then, on seeing Lakshmana standing up with sound health, Rama, Sugreeva, Vibhishana and the valiant Jambavan along with the army were rejoiced for a long time.
vrm.6.92 "O monarch! Your great majestic son has been killed by Lakshmana with the help of Vibhishana, while we were witnessing the event in the battle field.
vrm.6.93 Then, the virtuous Rama spoke also to Sugreeva, Vibhishana, Hanuma the Vanara, Jambavan, Mainda the foremost of Vanaras and even Dvivida, who were in close proximity to him as follows "Such wonderful power of this missile exists either with me or with the three eyed Rudra the lord of destruction.
vrm.6.94 "The appropriate advice tendered by Vibhishana which was conformable to duty and interest of Ravana as also beneficial to all the Rakshasas, was not to the liking to him, due to his ignorance.
vrm.6.94 "Had Ravana followed Vibhishana s advice, this Lanka would not have become a burial ground, tormented by sorrow.
vrm.6.94 "The great souled Vibhishana did something opportune.
vrm.6.100 Bouncing forward, Vibhishana killed, with his mace, the excellent Horses of Ravana, which looked like black clouds and were tall as mountains.
vrm.6.100 Then, Ravana, of great energy and prowess, hurled a spear looking like a blazing thunderbolt, on Vibhishana.
vrm.6.100 Even before the spear reached Vibhishana, Lakshmana tore it with three of his arrows and a loud cheer then arose from the Vanaras in the battle field.
vrm.6.100 In the meanwhile, the valiant Lakshmana quickly rushed towards that Vibhishana, who got a danger to his life.
vrm.6.100 To rescue that Vibhishana, the heroic Lakshmana, having stretched his bow, threw out streams of arrows on Ravana who was holding a spear in his hand.
vrm.6.100 Poured in with a multitude of arrows discharged by the great souled Lakshmana, Ravana with his attach frustrated, did not make up his mind to attack Vibhishana further.
vrm.6.100 Seeing Vibhishana his brother rescued by Lakshmana, that Ravana, turning his face towards Lakshmana spoke the following words:
vrm.6.100 "O Lakshmana, exalter of your own strength! As Vibhishana was rescued by you in this way, this spear, on letting off Vibhishana the Rakshasa, is being hurled on you now.
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 Having been pleased with the killing of Ravana, Rama then fulfilled the desire of Sugreeva, Angada and Vibhishana.
vrm.6.108 Rejoiced with the victory in battle, Sugreeva, Vibhishana and Angada together with Lakshmana along with their friends paid their respects with due ceremony to Rama, who looked charming.
vrm.6.109 Seeing his brother lying down dead after defeat in battle, Vibhishana lamented, with his mind filled with an outburst of sorrow: "Why are you lying killed on the ground, though you are highly worthy of turning towards lofty beds, O hero! The valiant one, the celebrated one, prudent in polity?"
vrm.6.109 To Vibhishana, who was thus speaking enveloped in sorrow, Rama spoke the following words, full of reason and which revealed his determined view of the matter.
vrm.6.109 To that valiant prince Rama by whom the aforesaid words were spoken, Vibhishana, who was tormented with grief, spoke as follows about the suitable action to be done next in relation to his brother.
vrm.6.109 Thus getting the personality of Ravana well acquainted by vibhishana by his compassionate words, Rama possessing unimpaired goodness, directed Vibhishana to perfom funeral rites, which were intended to lead the departed soul to heaven: Hostilities" end with death.
vrm.6.110 "Though tendering salutary advice to you, Vibhishana your beloved brother, was harshly scolded through ignorance by you, who sought your own destruction.
vrm.6.110 "If you had restored Seetha to Rama, Vibhishana your brother would have had his desire fulfilled.
vrm.6.111 While Vibhishana has obtained happiness, you met with such an evil destiny.
vrm.6.111 "O the mighty armed one! Whatever my younger brother in law, Vibhishana who knows matters relating to the pat and of the future and also conversant with the present said after reflecting and sighing for long, on seeing Seetha abducted by you: The destruction of the chiefs among the Rakshasas now is imminent, have become true words.
vrm.6.111 "The counsel offered by Vibhishana, which was endowed with reason, meaning, rule of conduct, wholesome, gentle and well founded, was not implemented by you.
vrm.6.111 In the meanwhile, Rama spoke to Vibhishana as follows: "Let the obsequies of your brother be performed and let these crews of women be consoled.
vrm.6.111 Reflecting with his intellect, the intelligent Vibhishana, the knower of virtue, thereupon, spoke to Rama, the following words, which were in conformity with righteousness and self interest.
vrm.6.111 Hearing those words, Rama the best among the supporters of virtue and skilled in speech, was very much pleased and spoke the following words to Vibhishana, the intelligent one in his speech.
vrm.6.111 Having heard the words of Rama, Vibhishana in haste began to do obsequies to Ravana, his dead brother.
vrm.6.111 Entering the City of Lanka, that Vibhishana, the lord of Rakshasas, quickly concluded the Agnihotra the act of pouring oblations into the sacred fire carried on by Ravana.
vrm.6.111 Vibhishana actually caused to be brought together, carts, excellent varieties of firewood, the three sacred fires and the priests required to officiate at the obsequies, logs of sandalwood, various types of firewood, pieces of fragrant aloe wood, odorous perfumes, as well as gems, pearls and corals.
vrm.6.111 Surrounded with Rakshasas, he came back for a while and thereupon, Vibhishana along with Malyavan the father of his own mother initiated the obsequies.
vrm.6.111 Lifting up that palanquin, which had been decorated with colorful flags and flowers and taking up blocks of wood, all the Rakshasas for their part, with Vibhishana in front, proceeded with their face turned towards the south.
vrm.6.111 Keeping the body of Ravana on a consecrated spot, Vibhishana and others, who were very much afflicted with grief, piled up a sacred pyre, with logs of sandalwood, moistened with perfumes called Padmaka and Koshira and covered with the skin of black antelopes, turned about to perform the obsequies in accordance with Vedic rites in honour of the king.
vrm.6.111 Having decorated the body of Ravana with perfumes, garlands and various kinds of clothes those Rakshasas accompanied by Vibhishana, distressed as they were in their minds, poured parched grains of rice, with their faces bathed in tears.
vrm.6.111 That Vibhishana set fire to Ravana, according to the rules in the scriptures.
vrm.6.111 Washing himself and offering in his wet clothes, according to scriptural ordinance, sesame seeds mixed with water, as well as blades of Kusha grass and offering obeisance to Ravana by bowing his head, Vibhishana entreated those women to return, consoling them again and again.
vrm.6.111 When those women were re entering the City, Vibhishana the lord of Rakshasas on approaching Rama s vicinity then remained standing there with humility.
vrm.6.112 "O the benevolent Lakshmana! Consecrate on the throne of Lanka, this Vibhishana to whom everyone is attached, a loyal person as he is and the one who has formerly done a service to us.
vrm.6.112 "O gentle one! This s my paramount desire that I should see this Vibhishana, the brother of Ravana being consecrated for throne in Lanka.
vrm.6.112 Thereupon, Lakshmana together with his friends, taking one pot and making Vibhishana to sit on the throne, sprinkled him with sea water from that pot in accordance with the rule prescribed in Vedic scriptures, while the Rakshasas were witnessing the ceremony, to make him the king for Lanka, as directed by Rama.
vrm.6.112 Then, all the Rakshasas as well as the Vanaras consecrated Vibhishana.
vrm.6.112 Seeing Vibhishana the lord of Rakshasas consecrated for the throne of Lanka, his four counsellors who were always together with him and such of those Rakshasas who were devoted to him, were rejoiced.
vrm.6.112 That Vibhishana, having gained that great kingdom bestowed on him by Rama, was also greatly delighted.
vrm.6.112 After consoling his people, Vibhishana then sought to presence of Rama.
vrm.6.112 Accepting them, the valiant and unconquerable Vibhishana happily offered all those auspicious objects to Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.6.112 Seeing Vibhishana, who had accomplished his act and increased his resources, Rama accepted it all, with a sole desire to show gratefulness to him.
vrm.6.112 "O the benevolent one! Taking permission from this Vibhishana, the great king and entering into the City of Lanka, inform about our welfare to Seetha.
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 O Seetha! Rama is well, together with Sugreeva and Lakshmana, along with Vibhishana as his supporter and collectively with the army of Vanaras.
vrm.6.113 Rama and Lakshmana, with the support of Vibhishana and the Vanaras, killed the valiant Ravana.
vrm.6.113 This kingdom of Lanka has now been placed indeed under the dominion ship of Vibhishana.
vrm.6.113 This Vibhishana too is coming to you with a rejoice, as he is so eager to see you.
vrm.6.113 Hearing those words of Seetha, the highly intelligent Hanuma, the son of Marut, bringing delight to Seetha, spoke the following words: You shall see today, Rama whose countenance is like a full moon, whose friends like Sugreeva and Vibhishana are alive, whose enemies have been killed along with Lakshmana, as Shachi the consort of Indra would see Indra the lord of Gods.
vrm.6.114 Drawing a deep and warm breath and casting his looks on the ground, he spoke as follows to Vibhishana, who closely resembled a cloud in hue and who was standing nearby.
vrm.6.114 Hearing the words of Rama, Vibhishana, after entering the gynaecium in haste, communicated his presence to Seetha, through his own women.
vrm.6.114 Then, the glorious Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas, after seeing the highly fortunate Seetha, with his palms joined over his head, humbly spoke to her as follows: "O Seetha! Anointed with charming cosmetics and adorned with beautiful jewels if you please, mount on the vehicle.
vrm.6.114 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, replied as follows: "O king of Rakshasas! I wish to see my husband, even without taking my bath.
vrm.6.114 Hearing those words of Seetha, Vibhishana replied as follows: "You ought to do the bidding of Rama, your husband, as he has enjoined you to do.
vrm.6.114 Hearing those words of Vibhishana, the virtuous Seetha, regarding her husband as a divinity, endowed as she was with a devotion to her husband, said in reply, "So t be!" Prevailing upon Seetha to ascend a shining palanquin, covered with an exceedingly valuable cloth and guarded by numerous Rakshasas, after she had bathed her head and cleansed her body, had put on costly robes and had been adorned with exceedingly valuable jewels, Vibhishana then brought her to the presence of Rama.
vrm.6.114 Approaching the great souled Rama, who was absorbed in thought, even after coming to know that Seetha had arrived, Vibhishana offered his obeisance and with full of great joy, announced to him that Seetha had arrived.
vrm.6.114 Feeling unhappy on considering with deep thought, the question of Seetha having come in a palanquin, all the way, Rama then spoke the following words, looking at Vibhishana who was beside him.
vrm.6.114 Hearing those words of that Rama, Vibhishana, who knew what was right, began to disperse the crowd there quickly.
vrm.6.114 The enraged Rama, consuming the Rakshasas with his looks as it were, Rama spoke the following reproaching words to the highly intelligent Vibhishana
vrm.6.114 Hearing the words of Rama the intelligent Vibhishana, with decency, brought Seetha to Rama s vicinity.
vrm.6.114 Seetha, for her part, shrinking into her limbs with modesty, approached her husband, duly followed by Vibhishana.
vrm.6.115 "Furthermore, the exertion of Vibhishana, who after deserting his brother who was void of good qualities, sought my presence, is fruitful today.
vrm.6.115 "O Seetha! Otherwise, set your mind either on Shatrughna or on Sugreeva or on Vibhishana the Rakshasa or according to your own comfort.
vrm.6.121 Vibhishana, wishing victory to Rama, the destroyer of adversaries who having reposed during the previous night and had risen fresh, spoke to him with joined palms, the following words: These women with lotus like eyes, who are skilled in the art of decoration, came with bathing accessories like garments, ornaments, sandal pastes and beautiful garlands of various kinds.
vrm.6.121 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Rama replied as follows: You invite the Vanaras headed by Sugreeva for the bath.
vrm.6.121 Hearing the words of Rama, Vibhishana replied O prince! I will get you t that City in a day.
vrm.6.121 Hearing those words, Rama replied to Vibhishana as follows, while all the Rakshasas and the Vanaras present there, listened: O destroyer of enemies! O hero! I stand honoured by you by your valued counsel, your efforts put forth with your whole soul and more so by your friendship.
vrm.6.121 O gentle Vibhishana! Allow me to go.
vrm.6.121 Hearing the words of Rama, Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas then hastily invoked the presence of that aerial car shining like the sun, with colourful parts made of gold, with the platform made of cats eye gems, which was full of attics, shone like silver on all sides, decorated well with white flags and flag staff, decked with gold and golden lotuses, graced with golden mansions, hung all over with networks of tiny bells, giving forth a melodious sound on all sides, resembling a summit of Mount Meru, built by Vishvakarma, which was graced with stately palaces decked with pearls and silver, provided with pavements inlaid with crystal, furnished with excellent seats of cats eye gems of great value and upholstered with highly valuable coverings.
vrm.6.121 Informing Rama that the said aerial car which could not be assailed and was as swift as though had arrived, Vibhishana stood there.
vrm.6.122 Keeping ready Pushpaka the aerial car decorated with flowers, Vibhishana, for his part, standing not very far, spoke to Rama as follows: What more can I do? thus spoke with haste, Vibhishana endowed as he was with modesty and with joined palms, to Rama.
vrm.6.122 denizens of forests, who performed tasks of exertion, be honoured with tasks of exertion, be honoured with precious stones and riches of various kinds, O Vibhishana! O Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas! Lanka has conquered by you, in collaboration with these Vanaras, who never turned their backs in battles and fought joyfully, ignoring all risk to their lives.
vrm.6.122 Hearing the words of Rama, Vibhishana honoured all those Vanaras, by dispersing precious stones and gold to them.
vrm.6.122 Bestowing attention on all the Vanaras as well as Vibhishana and the mighty Sugreeva, Rama remaining in the aerial car, spoke as follows:
vrm.6.122 O Vibhishana! Settle down in your kingdom at Lanka, conferred by me.
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.6.122 Hearing those words of the Vanaras and Vibhishana, that pious minded Rama spoke to those Vanaras, Sugreeva and Vibhishana as follows: Something more dearer than everything dear will be achieved by me, if I reach Ayodhya with the host of my friends along with all of you, for, I shall feel delighted.
vrm.6.122 O Vibhishana, the king of Rakshasas! You also ascend it, along with your counsellors.
vrm.6.122 Vibhishana together with his counselors also ascended it.
vrm.6.123 At this very place, Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas first came.
vrm.6.123 Thereupon, all those Vanaras and the rejoiced Rakshasas along with Vibhishana, at that time, bounding again and again to have a glimpse of it saw that City.
vrm.6.125 O gentle Hanuma! Inform to Bharata, of me as having come near Ayodhya, along with Vibhishana and Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras.
vrm.6.127 "In the same aerial car are the valiant Rama and Lakshmana, the brothers, along with Seetha, the immensely brilliant Sugreeva and Vibhishana the Rakshasa.
vrm.6.127 Seeing that Bharata, speaking thus with affection with his brother, Vibhishana the Rakshasa and the Vanaras shed their tears.
vrm.6.128 Bharata, having bathed first, the mighty Lakshmana, Sugreeva the lord of Vanaras and Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas took bath.
vrm.6.128 Vibhishana, the king of Rakshasas standing nearby, held a white fan, shining brilliantly like the moon.
vrm.6.128 Then, Rama spoke to his counselors about his meeting with Vibhishana.
vrm.6.128 Rama, who was unwearied in action, then suitably honoured Vibhishana, Sugreeva, Hanuma, Jambavan and all other eminent Vanaras with desired objects and abundant gifts.
vrm.6.128 The righteous and the renowned king Vibhishana too, after obtaining the treasure of his race kingdom of Rakshasas, followed by those foremost of Rakshasas, returned to Lanka.
vrm.7.5 These night rangers sons unto Mali were the courtiers of Vibhishana.
vrm.7.9 Then was born she that, having a frightful visage, goeth under the name of Surpanakha ;the righteous Vibhishana is the youngest son of Kaikasi.
vrm.7.9 But the righteous Vibhishana, ever intent on piety, dwelt there, studying the Veda, restraining his fare, and controlling his senses.
vrm.7.10 And the vituous Vibhishana, ever intent on virtue and pure of spirit, remained standing on one leg for ive thousand years.
vrm.7.10 In this wise Vibhishana like a deity in Nandana passed away ten thousand years, observing restrictions.
vrm.7.10 Having said this unto the Ten necked one, the Great sire of all creatures addressed Vibhishana, saying, O Vibhishana, gratified have I been by thee, whose intelligence is established in righteousness.
vrm.7.10 Thereat the virtuous Vibhishana spoke with joined hands, O reverend one, since the spiritual preceptor of all creatures himself is pleased with me, I deem myself as furnished with every perfection, even as the Moon is environed with rays.
vrm.7.10 Then the lord of creatures, being again delighted, spoke unto Vibhishana, As thou at vituous, so all this shall come to pass on thy behalf.
vrm.7.12 And Vibhishana obtained for his wife the righteousdamsel named Sarama daughter unto the high souled Sailusha sovereign of the Gandharvas.
vrm.7.13 And going to the city of Lanka, he presented himself before Vibhishana.
vrm.7.13 And having enquired after the welfare of the king as well as his kindred, Vibhishana, showed him unto Dasanana seated in his court.
vrm.7.30 Thereupon going there with his son and Vibhishana, Dasagriva got down all those damsels,speechless with tears, gifted with auspicious marks,the precious females of the Devas, Danavas and Rakshasas.
vrm.7.30 Perceiving his vicious desire for those damsels, the virtuous souled Vibhishana said "Thou dost still follow thy own whims, knowing that people are injured by these actions which destroy piety, wealth and fame.
vrm.7.30 Who is that Madhu, who has been named by thee?" Worked up with fire Vibhishana said to his brother: "Hear, the fruit of thy vicious actions hath arrived.
vrm.7.30 Hearing the words of Vibhishana, Ravana, the lord of Rakshasas, became agitated like an ocean, by the recollection of his vicious deeds.
vrm.7.30 Commanding them Indrajit preceded the army, Ravana went in the middle and Kumbhakarna was in the rear; the virtuous souled Vibhishana remained in Lanka, being engaged in piotis observances.
vrm.7.35 Hearing the words of Agastya, Rama, Lakshmana, Vanaras and Rakshasas all said "wonderful it is"; and Vibhishana, who was by the side of Rama, said: After a long time, the old recollections have come to my mind.
vrm.7.46 And having their eyes expanded with delight the Vanaras, with Sugriva, the Rakshasas with Vibhishana, the kings with their councillors, and all other assembled pious Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, and Sudras, delightedly espied Rama.
vrm.7.47 Many kings, Vibhishana, Sugriva, Hanuman and many others adorned the assembly and Rama excelled Indra, the lord of the Devas, in splendour.
vrm.7.49 Having delightedly accepted those gifts Rama in return made presents of them unto the successful king Sugriva, Vibhishana and other Rakshasas and Vanaras by whose help he had achieved victory.
vrm.7.50 Having said this and embraced Sugriva again and again Rama addressed Vibhishana with sweet accents.
vrm.7.50 Both Sugriva and the virtuous souled Vibhishana embraced Rama and three of them were beside themselves with tears.
vrm.7.104 See that Vibhishana of unequalled prowess, the king of Rakshasas, encircled by his followers, coursing at will, may be present at the horse sacrifice.
vrm.7.104 And Vibhishana, surrounded by various Rakshas and females, engaged in the service of the high souled Rishis intent on hard penances.
vrm.7.105 Vibhishana, in the company of many Rakshasas, with a collected mind, began to serve the Rishis, having asceticism for their wealth.
vrm.7.121 He then said to Vibhishana the king of Rakshasas: As long as people shall breathe, O Vibhishana, O highly powerful lord of Rakshasas, thou shalt preserve thy body in Lanka.
