vrm.1.3 Enthroning shoe sandals of Rama by Bharata Bharata s living in a village Nandigrama Rama s going to Dandaka forests killing the Rakshasa named Viradha.
vrm.3.2 you insulters of sainthood? b a "I am a Rakshasa named Viradha and I will be on the rove in this impassable forest with weapon, always eating the flesh of sages.
vrm.3.2 b a On listening those arrogant words spoken in bad intent by that evil minded Viradha, Seetha, the daughter of Janaka, is much panicked.
vrm.3.2 Seetha in fear wiggled like a plantain tree in a whirlwind, and on seeing at the auspicious lady gone into the arms of Viradha, Raghava spoke this sentence to Lakshmana, with his face fully turning to pale.
vrm.3.2 "Indeed, that which anger was there to me on Bharata when he desired kingdom, that anger I will now release on Viradha, as Indra released his Thunderbolt on the mountain.
vrm.3.3 Then in his turn that Rakshasa Viradha said this sentence filling the forest with his gruesome voice, "I am asking you, really.
vrm.3.3 Viradha said to that truly valiant Rama, "Ah! Ill tell you, oh king, be informed of me, oh Raghava.
vrm.3.3 my mother is Shatahradaa, and all the Rakshasas on earth call me Viradha.
vrm.3.3 Rama in reply said this to that Rakshasa Viradha, whose eyes are fully bloodshot in anger, who is monstrous in his body, and evil in intent.
vrm.3.3 But, they the arrows that are akin to infernos and dressed with peacock feathers as their fins, on piercing the body of Viradha they fell onto the ground besmirched with blood.
vrm.3.3 Then with an effulgent arrow rain those two brothers incessantly rained on Rakshasa Viradha, who is similar to the terminator of lifetime.
vrm.3.3 Rakshasa Viradha held back his lives by the touch of boon, and raising up the spear he ran quickly at Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.3.3 That nightwalker Viradha on placing those two Raghava s on his shoulders gone towards deeper forest yelling very luridly.
vrm.3.4 On hearing Vaidehi s that utterance those valorous ones Rama and Lakshmana speedily busied themselves in eliminating that evil minded Rakshasa Viradha.
vrm.3.4 then Rama repressively placed his foot on the throat of Viradha, and stood by.
vrm.3.4 On hearing that said by Raghava, Rakshasa Viradha sincerely spoke these humble words to Rama, the finest one from Kakutstha dynasty.
vrm.3.4 a "And on saying thus to Rama that Viradha who is hurt by arrows became heaven worthy on leaving his body.
vrm.3.4 then Rama repressively placed his foot on the throat of Viradha, and stood by.
vrm.3.4 b, Then, on taking a digging tool Lakshmana dug a deep pit beside the great soul Viradha.
vrm.3.4 On releasing his throat from the stamping of Rama, he that long eared, lurid voiced Viradha is ensconced in that pit while he is still blaring with his horrific voice.
vrm.3.4 Those deftly victorious ones Rama and Lakshmana who compose themselves in a given fight, both have gladly raised that Viradha, a ghoulish one in fight, a terrifying Rakshasa who is still blaring, with all their might and hurled him into the pit.
vrm.3.4 Viradha himself preferred his death at the hands of Rama and desired for a long to be killed by Rama and that forest walker himself appraised that, "Killing me with any weapon is impossible.
vrm.3.4 On listening to that which is said by Viradha, Rama resolved his mind to cast him into pit, and when that mighty Rakshasa is being flung into the pit the whole forest blared with that Rakshasa s cries.
vrm.3.4 Rama and Lakshmana felt happy by way of their look in burying Viradha in the pit of the earth, and on burying him they two felt rejoiced for gone is the fear in that great forest, and within the pit they have also concealed him with boulders in order to make it a burial chamber to the departed soul.
vrm.3.5 After killing that stupendously mighty Rakshasa Viradha in forest, then Rama comfortingly embraced Seetha, and spoke to his brother Lakshmana who is beaming forth with resplendence.
vrm.5.26 "By which Rama Viradha, best among Rakshasas, has been killed in Dandaka forest in a war, why is that He not saving me?" "This city of Lanka being in the middle of ocean is difficult to be attacked.
vrm.6.30 There is no one on earth who is equal in prowess to Rama, by whom Viradha was killed as also Kabandha who was equal to Yama.
vrm.6.67 That Kumbhakarna of great splendour, as though bursting the hearts of all the Vanaras, laughed unnaturally as also awfully and spoke the following words to Rama: I am neither to be considered as Viradha nor Kabandha nor Khara nor Vali nor Maricha.
vrm.6.94 "Seeing that instance of Rama killing single handedly Viradha the Rakshasa, who was yearning for Seetha, is enough indeed to convince Ravana of Rama s strength and ability" "In Janasthana, Rama killed fourteen thousand Rakshasas who were doing terrific feats, with his arrows resembling tongues of fire.
vrm.6.107 Thought equipped with many arrows and well versed with all kinds of missiles, the valiant Rama, the augmentor of Kausalya s joy, then became thoughtful said to himself as follows: "What is the reason, these arrows by which Maricha, Khara, Dushana, Kabandha in Krauncha forest, and Viradha in Dandaka forest were killed, by which seven Sala trees and the mountains were burst, by which Vali was killed and the ocean shaken up all these arrows which provided immediate succour to me in battle, have proved of little efficacy in the case of Ravana.
vrm.6.123 "At this place, the gigantic Viradha was killed by me.
vrm.6.126 "In front of them, even as they were going in that dense forest, there appeared Viradha, a Rakshasa, uttering forth a very loud roar.
