vrm.1.18 b, a While the great souled Dasharatha is discussing the marriages of princes among his ministers, the highly powerful sage Vishvamitra arrived.
vrm.1.18 Desirous to have an audience with king Vishvamitra said to the doorkeeper, Let the king be informed quickly that I, the son of Gadhi from the dynasty of Kushi, have come b, a On listening those words all the doorkeepers are dumbfounded, and ushered by those words they quickly rushed to the place of Dasharatha.
vrm.1.18 Then on their arriving at the king s palace the doorkeepers have announced to the king of Ikshvaku s, namely Dasharatha, about the arrival of sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.18 b, a On hearing that message from doorkeepers Dasharatha is highly pleased and he has gone towards Vishvamitra in a self possessed manner along with royal priests, as Indra would ceremoniously go towards Brahma.
vrm.1.18 Then on seeing the resplendent sage Vishvamitra, whose radiance is by his own ascesis and who has severe self discipline, the king offered water with a gladsome aspect, as first customary hospitality in receiving unexpected guest.
vrm.1.18 b, a On receiving water from the king scripturally and customarily Vishvamitra enquired after the well being and welfare of king Dasharatha.
vrm.1.18 b, a That highly righteous sage Vishvamitra asked the king after the well being
vrm.1.18 b, a Sage Vishvamitra asked Dasharatha, Are all of the provincial kings acquiescent to you, and all your enemies conquered? Are you properly performing the devotional and social works? b, a And on meeting the eminent sage Vashishta and with them the other exalted sages according to custom Vishvamitra asked after their well being.
vrm.1.18 b, a Then the very generous king Dasharatha is gladdened at heart at the arrival of Vishvamitra, and he spoke this way feeling happy to adore that sage.
vrm.1.18 humbleness, and those that are pleasant to ears as well to heart, he who is a renowned for his personal attributes and a reputed one by his exceptional qualities, that sublime sage Vishvamitra obtained high rejoice.
vrm.1.19 On listening the grand and detailed sentences of that King the lion Dasharatha, the great resplendent Sage Vishvamitra is thrilled with happiness and spoke this way.
vrm.1.19 Thus Vishvamitra said to Dasharatha.
vrm.1.19 b, a On hearing the propitious words of sage Vishvamitra that best king Dasharatha shuddered and swooned as he is muffled up with profound adversity, and after that on regaining consciousness he sunk down in fear.
vrm.1.19 b, This way on hearing that word of the saint Vishvamitra which is explicitly slitting his mind and heart that illustrious and noble souled king Dasharatha then became
vrm.1.20 On hearing what is spoken by Vishvamitra the tigerly king Dasharatha became insensate for a time, and on redeeming senses he said this.
vrm.1.20 b, a Sixty thousand years have passed from my birth, oh! Vishvamitra, and this Rama is engendered at this age, that too with tribulations, hence taking Rama with you will be inappropriate of you.
vrm.1.20 Thus Dasharatha asked Vishvamitra insistently.
vrm.1.20 On hearing those words Sage Vishvamitra replied this way.
vrm.1.20 Thus Sage Vishvamitra said to Dasharatha.
vrm.1.20 b, Thus when he is said so by that sage Vishvamitra, then the king Dasharatha spoke to the sage, I myself am not capable of standing against that evil minded Ravana, in truth, where is the question of deputing my young Rama to confront him?
vrm.1.20 Thus, by the incongruous talk of Dasharatha, the outstanding Brahman and son of Sage Kushi, namely sage Vishvamitra is overwhelmed with outrageous anger by his mentation, and that fire like glorious sage looked like the ritual fire into which many inflammable oblations are offered, and which is drenched with a lot of clarified butter, whereby it is flaring up its tongues.
vrm.1.21 On hearing the wavery words of Dasharatha that are full of fond for his son, Vishvamitra wrathfully replied this sentence to the king.
vrm.1.21 So said Vishvamitra to the king.
vrm.1.21 When that prudent sage Vishvamitra is thus enwrapped in fury, then the whole earth trembled and the Devas are scared.
vrm.1.21 On knowing the appalled appearance of the entire world at the fury of Vishvamitra, Vashishta the great sage with high vows and an insightful one too, said these words to the king.
vrm.1.21 "Whether Rama is trained in weaponry or not, Rakshasas cannot trounce Rama as long as Kushi s son Vishvamitra protects him, like the heavenly firewall that protects divine nectar.
vrm.1.21 Devas" cannot know Vishvamitra, and anybody from sages no immortals no Rakshasas no the Gandharva s and eminent Yaksha s together with the Kinnara s and great Uragas no, they cannot know him.
vrm.1.21 "All the missiles known to Vishvamitra are the highly righteous children of Krishasva Prajapati, where Prajapati s were the earliest ruler of mankind, and god Shiva gave them to Vishvamitra when was ruling kingdom.
vrm.1.21 "And this sage Vishvamitra is in the precise know of the said missiles, and this principled one is also capable of creating hitherto unavailable missiles.
vrm.1.21 "Thereby, oh, Raghava, nothing whatsoever is unknown to this great souled Vishvamitra, who is a distinguished sage and the knower of virtue, either that has happened or that is happening.
vrm.1.21 "Thus, the highly renowned and great resplendent sage Vishvamitra has this sort of enterprise, oh, king, allowing a doubt enter your mind in Rama s accompanying the sage will be unapt of you.
vrm.1.21 "This son of Kushi, Vishvamitra, can as well control those Rakshasas by himself, but intending to accord beneficence to your son he approached you and imploring upon you.
vrm.1.21 Thus the prominent king from Raghu dynasty, namely Dasharatha, became serene minded by sage Vashishta s words, and he who is supreme among other kings and who has pronounced renown, that Dasharatha then gladly and wholeheartedly consented to the travel of Rama along with the sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.22 Rama is blessed for a propitious travel firstly by his mother Kausalya and then by his father king Dasharatha, thereupon the royal priest Vashishta rendered Vedic hymns blessing the journey, then Dasharatha well pleased in his heart of hearts kissed his son Rama on forehead and entrusted him to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.22 Then on seeing the lotus eyed Rama following Vishvamitra the breeze became dustless and breezed pleasant for touch.
vrm.1.22 Rama with jet black hair locks handling his bow followed Vishvamitra who
vrm.1.22 Rama and Lakshmana, with two quivers each and two bows in their hands, and making all the ten directions of compass lambent followed Vishvamitra, as if three headed serpents followed Vishvamitra, and with their highly dynamic physiques and spiritedness they look as if like the Ashwins of unequal charm following Brahma, the Forefather.
vrm.1.22 While they are following Vishvamitra they looked like the sons of Agni, namely Skanda and Vishakha, following the great god with inscrutable potential, namely Shiva, and thus the brothers have made Vishvamitra to shine forth in even pose with god Shiva.
vrm.1.22 a And on going one and half Yojana distance Vishvamitra addressed Rama in a harmonious voice calling, oh, Rama on the southern riverbank of Sarayu.
vrm.1.22 Thus spoke Sage Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.22 Then Rama on touching water to purify himself received those teachings from the contemplative soul Vishvamitra with gladness beaming on his face.
vrm.1.22 Though both Rama and Lakshmana slept on an undeserving grass bed, nestled by the comfortable words of Vishvamitra that night is as though pleasant to the noteworthy children of Dasharatha.
vrm.1.23 At dawn after that night the great saint Vishvamitra spoke to the legatees of Kakutstha, Rama and Lakshmana, those that are sleeping on a grass bed.
vrm.1.23 On performing their dawn time duties those two stalwarts, Rama and Lakshmana, enthusiastically presented themselves before the ascetically rich sage Vishvamitra for further journey, duly venerating him.
vrm.1.23 On seeing that merited hermitage Rama and Lakshmana are highly pleased and said this word to that great soul Sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.23 Thus Vishvamitra started to narrate.
vrm.1.23 So said Vishvamitra to Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.1.23 a When they are discussing there the sages of that hermitage are highly gladdened to perceive them with their sixth sense, and on approaching them enchantedly they offered water for hands and feet wash and then offered hospitality firstly to Sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.23 Afterwards those sages of that hermitage have accorded reception to Rama and Lakshmana, and applauded by Vishvamitra for their hospitality those sages have entertained Rama and other guests with myths and legends.
vrm.1.23 Later the eminent saint and virtue souled one, Vishvamitra, delighted the delightful princes with delightful stories, in the night.
vrm.1.24 Then, in the fresh of the morning those enemy destroyers, Rama and Lakshmana, arrived at the riverbank of Ganga keeping sage Vishvamitra ahead of them, which sage has just completed his ritualistic chores of dawn.
vrm.1.24 All those sages of Kama s hermitage that are the great souls and scrupulous ones in their vows, have positioned an auspicious ferryboat within the reach in the river, and then they said to sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.24 Sage Vishvamitra on saying it must be so, to those sages and revering them in his turn, cruised the river that itself is cruising towards ocean, along with both the princes.
vrm.1.24 a Rama then asked the eminent sage Vishvamitra in the midst of the river, "what is this turbulent sound sire, as though slashing water?" b, a
vrm.1.24 On hearing the inquisitive words of Raghava that virtue souled sage Vishvamitra started to tell the significance of that sound.
vrm.1.24 So said Vishvamitra to the princes.
vrm.1.24 b, a On seeing a horrendous and uninhibited forest, Rama, the son of the best king Dasharatha asked the eminent sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.24 Thus Rama asked Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.24 b, a The resplendent and the great saint Vishvamitra then said to Rama, "I will tell you, oh, my boy Rama, whose is this wretched forest.
vrm.1.24 So said Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.25 "It is said that Yaksha s strength is trivial, and this is an yakshii, more so a female, how then this yakshii frail by her femineity can exert the strength of a thousand Elephants? On hearing the sentence of Raghava with illimitable dynamism, Vishvamitra said this sentence to the enemy subduer Rama along with Lakshmana, cheering them up with his pleasant words, "Listen by which a female became outstanding by jeer strength.
vrm.1.25 Thus said sage Vishvamitra to Rama regarding Tataka s elimination.
vrm.1.26 So said Rama to sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.26 But the Brahma sage Vishvamitra daunted sounded her off and said to Rama and Lakshmana, "let you be safe, and be victorious.
vrm.1.26 And on seeing both Rama and Lakshmana who are being overspread by storms of stones from all over, then the illustrious sage Vishvamitra spoke this sentence.
vrm.1.26 b, a When Vishvamitra addressed him thus, Rama displaying his capacity in sonic archery forestalled that yakshii who has gone into invisibility and storming stone storms, with his arrows.
vrm.1.26 The thousand eyed and the destroyer of enemys citadels Indra then spoke with high satisfaction, and even all of the Devas are gladdened and said to Vishvamitra this way.
vrm.1.26 b, a "Oh, sage Vishvamitra, you are blessed, all the groups of Maruts along with Indra are pleased, so you please show more concern for Raghava.
vrm.1.26 So said Devas to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.26 b, a All the Devas on saying thus and on extolling Vishvamitra they contentedly returned to heavens, and then the sunset has come to pass.
vrm.1.26 So said Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.26 On listening sage Vishvamitra s words, Dasharatha s son Rama, comfortably stayed that night there in that forest of Tataka.
vrm.1.27 Then, on staying that night there in Tataka forest, on the next day morning the greatly renowned sage Vishvamitra, smilingly and wording sweetly spoke to Rama.
vrm.1.27 So said sage Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.27 That pre eminent sage Vishvamitra on performing his personal holy depuration then gave the assortment of extraordinary hymns to Rama facing eastward.
vrm.1.27 While that intelligent saint Vishvamitra chanted the hymns, all of those highly venerable missiles came nigh and stood accessible to Raghava in their astral form.
vrm.1.27 b, That highly resplendent Rama revered sage Vishvamitra with a thankful heart and readied himself for further journey.
vrm.1.28 On becoming personally purified Rama, the descendent of Kakutstha s, received the missiles, and then on their way he is now speaking to Sage Vishvamitra with a pleasant face.
vrm.1.28 When Rama of Kakutstha said thus, next that resolute, well averred and purified sage of eminence Vishvamitra imparted the knowledge of annulment missiles.
vrm.1.28 Thus Vishvamitra gave missiles to Rama.
vrm.1.28 After learning the nullifying missiles and then while proceeding on the walkway Raghava asked the great sage Vishvamitra with sweet and soft words.
vrm.1.28 Rama asked Vishvamitra in that way.
vrm.1.29 When that matchlessly illustrious Rama has asked for details, that highly resplendent sage Vishvamitra started to narrate about that forest to Rama.
vrm.1.29 Thus Vishvamitra is narrating to Rama.
vrm.1.29 Thus Vishvamitra continued narration.
vrm.1.29 Thus Vishvamitra said to Rama.
vrm.1.29 So saying that great sage Vishvamitra is highly gladdened to lead Rama together with Lakshmana to the hermitage, and on his entering the hermitage with those two, that sage shone forth like moon with a two starred constellation called Punarvasu, the fifth or seventh lunar mansion, after dispersal of mist.
vrm.1.29 On seeing the arrival of Vishvamitra all of the resident sages of Accomplished Hermitage have quickly approached him with hustle and bustle adoring him.
vrm.1.29 Those sages reverenced Vishvamitra according to their deservedness, likewise they have offered hospitality to both of the princes, Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.1.29 Those two princes from Raghu s dynasty and the enemy subjugators, namely Rama and Lakshmana, briefly took rest and adjoining palms they spoke to the sagely tiger Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.29 So said Rama to Vishvamitra, supported by Lakshmana.
vrm.1.29 When he is said so, that great radiant and supreme sage Vishvamitra, thereupon scrupulously undertook the vow of ritual controlling his senses.
vrm.1.29 On finishing morning time bathing they meditated upon the easterly aurora, and then on completing the supreme meditation on Gayatri in its regularity, they addressed themselves to sage Vishvamitra, who by now has enkindled ritual fire and sitting before the Altar of Fire.
vrm.1.30 The two enemy subjugators, Rama and Lakshmana, who are sensible of their conduct according to time and place, and who will be sensibly talking according to time and place, those princes then spoke this sentence to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.30 "Oh, Raghava s, you have to safeguard this ritual for six nights and days from today, and this Sage Vishvamitra who is under the vow of ritual goes into muteness as required by the vow.
vrm.1.30 On alertly patrolling nearby the Altar of Fire those two enemy destroyers who are the wielders of great bows and valiant ones have protected the best sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.30 While Rama is saying thus himself quickening to combat then the fire in the Altar of Fire flared up suddenly and highly, brightening the chief officiator of the ritual, namely Vishvamitra, and other priests around it.
vrm.1.30 The Altar of Fire around which sacred grass, drink vessels, oblation spoons, firewood sticks, and heaps of flowers are kept, and around which Vishvamitra and the conductors of ritual are sitting, that altar flared high.
vrm.1.30 On the completion of ritual beholding the precincts that are devoid of calamities the great sage Vishvamitra said this to Rama.
vrm.1.30 thus when Vishvamitra is applauding Rama, they have come close to vesper time for vespertine prayers on Sandhya, the goddess of gloaming.
vrm.1.31 Rejoicing for achieving the result of their journey with Vishvamitra, the brave Rama and Lakshmana then resided in that hermitage for that night, gladdening in their heart of hearts.
vrm.1.31 When that night turned into a new day, performing their morning chores both of the brother jointly approached Sage Vishvamitra, who is along with other sages by then.
vrm.1.31 And those gentle speakers on reverencing that eminent sage Vishvamitra, whose radiance is akin to the ritual fire, they two spoke this highly courteous sentence to him.
vrm.1.31 When they have said that way all those great sages spoke to Rama, keeping Vishvamitra at the helm of affairs.
vrm.1.31 Saying so that best saint Vishvamitra started to travel on along with the assemblages of sages, and even along with Rama and Lakshmana, whose tacit consent to follow the sage is obtained by now, and on bidding farewell to the deities of woodlands of that Accomplished Hermitage, where his ritual is accomplished with the help of Rama and Lakshmana.
vrm.1.31 Thus saying farewell to woodland deities that descendent of Kaushika, namely Vishvamitra, the saint whose wealth is his ascesis started to journey on aiming to reach the northern side of River Ganga.
vrm.1.31 Even the residents of that Hermitage of Accomplishment, namely animals and Birds, closely followed that great souled Vishvamitra, whose wealth is his ascesis, in herds and flocks.
vrm.1.31 But that sage Vishvamitra made those flocks of Birds and the herds of animals to return to their places, as they have shown enough courtesy.
vrm.1.31 b, a When the sun went into dusk those sages with illimitable resplendence took their bath and on kindling the consumer of kindled oblations they completed their evening fire ritual, and then squatted before sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.31 And even Rama along with Lakshmana on worshipping those sages squatted before that intellectual Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.31 b, a With growing inquisitiveness that resplendent Rama has asked the tigerly sage Vishvamitra whose wealth is his ascesis.
vrm.1.31 Thus Rama asked Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.31 b, a Sage Vishvamitra whose vows are unselfish and whose ascesis is exalted is motivated with the words of Rama and staying amidst the sages he started to tell all about that place.
vrm.1.32 Thus Sage Vishvamitra commenced narration.
vrm.1.32 Thus Sage Vishvamitra continued his narration.
vrm.1.33 Thus Vishvamitra continued his narration.
vrm.1.34 Sage Vishvamitra thus narrating to Rama.
vrm.1.34 So said Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.34 Saying so that greatly resplendent and eminent saint Vishvamitra paused, and then all the other sages have revered him saying, "well said, well said.
vrm.1.34 Thus the other sages have applauded Vishvamitra and his dynasty.
vrm.1.34 "You alone are exemplarily selfsame to Brahma, oh, Vishvamitra of great renown, and among rivers that prominent River Kaushiki is your sister, thus she is glorifying your ancestry.
vrm.1.34 Thus the sages lauded Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.34 Sage Vishvamitra is pleased when those tigerly sages have laude him, and then that magnificent sage Vishvamitra lapsed into the lap of sleep, as the sun lapses into lap of dusk for that day.
vrm.1.35 On hearing the words of Sage Vishvamitra, Rama woke up and on completion of morning time religious activities he readied himself for further journey and indeed spoke this sentence to the sage.
vrm.1.35 Oh, Brahman, in which of the two ways, namely by fordless waters or by fordable water with dunes, we have to cross this river? When Rama spoke to him thus sage Vishvamitra replied, "I propose the same route by which these great sages are going.
vrm.1.35 Thus spoken by that astute Sage Vishvamitra, the other great sages travelled on, indeed beholding diverse forests and their environs.
vrm.1.35 Later, dining on their part of those Ambrosian oblations with which they have oblated the fire, those sages perched on the propitious banks of Ganga, surrounding the great souled Vishvamitra from all sides, to the contentment of their heart in having performed religious chores on the riverbank of Ganga.
vrm.1.35 a When sages are sitting at ease then even Rama and Lakshmana sat down according to their admissibility and custom of sitting before their teachers, and then Rama highly gladdened at heart has spoken to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.35 Thus Rama asked Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.35 Motivated by Rama s words the eminent sage Vishvamitra commenced to narrate about the emergence and that way even about the progression of River Ganga.
vrm.1.36 When that sage Vishvamitra has finished narration of the legend of the daughters of Himavanta, both the brave ones, namely Raghava and Lakshmana in their turn have extolled that legend and spoke to that eminent sage.
vrm.1.36 "By which reason that world purifier Ganga influxes into three paths? Oh, virtue knower, and connected with which deeds of merit this triple courser Ganga is renowned as the best one among all the rivers in three worlds?" Thus Rama and Lakshmana have asked the sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.36 a When Kakutstha s have enquired that way, the ascetically wealthy sage Vishvamitra has narrated all the legend of Ganga in its entirety, staying among the sages.
vrm.1.37 Sage Vishvamitra continued his narration to Rama.
vrm.1.38 Describing that legend of Kaartikeya to Rama, the descendent of Kaushi, namely sage Vishvamitra has further spoken this best sentence worded melodiously to Rama, the descendent of Kakutstha.
vrm.1.39 On listening the narration of Vishvamitra, Rama, the delighter of Raghu s dynasty is highly rejoiced, and at the end of the episode he spoke to sage whose glow is fire like.
vrm.1.39 On listening the words of Rama that are inclusive of his inquisitiveness, Sage Vishvamitra smilingly spoke to that descendent of Kakutstha, "oh, Rama, let the episode of the great souled Sagara be listened vividly.

vrm.1.45 Thus Rama is addressing Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.45 Thereafter on the next fresh dawn the enemy oppressor Raghava spoke these words to sage Vishvamitra, whose affluence is nothing but asceticism, and who by now has performed his daily chores of rituals.
vrm.1.45 Thus Rama spoke to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.45 Hearing the words of great souled Raghava, Vishvamitra of Kusha dynasty, started to cross over the River Ganga along with the assemblage of sages, and with both the Raghava s.

Has this great souled Rama reverenced that great resplendent father of mine by according a redemption,
vrm.1.51 On hearing that sentence of his, that great saint and sentence precisian Sage Vishvamitra, replied the sentence precisionist Sage Shataananda.
vrm.1.51 So said Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.51 On hearing those words of that highly intellectual Vishvamitra, high refulgent sage Shataananda spoke these words to Rama.
vrm.1.51 "Hail to thee! Oh, best one among men Rama, your arrival is a Godsend, not only to Mithila but to entire humanity, and oh, Raghava, as an undefeatable great sage Vishvamitra spearheads you, so shall your mission be undefeatable, thus hail to thee! "This highly resplendent Vishvamitra s exploits are unimaginable.
vrm.1.51 "None other than you is fortunate enough on earth, oh, Rama, as you are in the custodial care of Vishvamitra, the scion of Kushika, who has practised supreme ascesis.
vrm.1.51 "What is the prowess of the great souled Vishvamitra, and what the quintessence of his legend may be heard from me while I narrate it.
vrm.1.51 "This probity souled Vishvamitra, being a proficient in rectitude, a perfectionist in kingcraft, a proponent of people s welfare, more so a persecutor of enemies, was there as a king for a long time.
vrm.1.51 One" who is highly renowned by the name Gaadhi was the son of Kushanaabha, and Gaadhi s son is this great saint of great resplendence, Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.51 Vishvamitra" ruled the earth, and this great resplendent king ruled the kingdom for many thousands of years.
vrm.1.51 "At one time the great resplendent king Vishvamitra went round the earth marshalling a unit of Akshauhini army.
vrm.1.51 "Moving sequentially about the provinces, cities, rivers likewise mountains, king Vishvamitra arrived at the threshold of a hermitage which is with numerous flowered trees and climbers, overspread with very many herds of animals, adored by the Siddhas and Caaranas, frequented and embellished with Devas, Danavas, Gandharvas, and Kinnaras, spread out with equable deer, adored by flights of Birds, compacted with the assemblages of Brahmarshis, and also with the assemblages of Devarshis who are fully accomplished in their ascesis, where the personal resplendence of each of the great souled sage is similar to each of the Ritual fire available in each of the Ritual Fire Altar before which he is sitting, and which hermitage is bustling with the activity of great souled sages who are comparable to Brahma, among whom some subsist on water alone, and some on air alone, likewise some more on dry leaves, while some on fruits, tubers, and with such of those sages and also with particular sages like Vaalakhilya s, also with others like Vaikhanasa s, who are all self controlled, who have overcame their peccabilites, who have overpowered their senses that hermitage is occupied, and while everyone of the inmates is engaged in meditations and oblations into Ritual fire, and with such sages and their activity whole of the perimeter of that hermitage is brightened and rendered splendent, and king Vishvamitra arrived at such a magnificent hermitage of Sage Vashishta.
vrm.1.51 a "And this best one among vanquishers and the great stalwart Vishvamitra has then seen the hermitage of Vashishta which is like the worldly Universe of Brahma.
vrm.1.52 On seeing at that best sage among best meditators Sage Vashishta, the great mighty and valorous Vishvamitra is highly rejoiced and obediently made an obeisance to the sage.
vrm.1.52 The great souled Vashishta spoke, "you are welcome," and that godly sage has indeed shown a high seat to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.52 The eminent saint Vashishta then customarily offered fruits and tuber to the courageous Vishvamitra who by now has assumed a seat.
vrm.1.52 On receiving that deference from Vashishta, then that unsurpassed king Vishvamitra asked after the well being of the ascesis, Fire rituals and disciples and their progress in that hermitage, and that great resplendent Vishvamitra has also asked after the well being of flora and fauna of the hermitage, and Vashishta reported to the matchless king about the all round well being of every activity.
vrm.1.52 Vashishta the supreme one among meditators, a great ascetic, and the brainchild of Brahma has then asked Vishvamitra who is sitting at ease.
vrm.1.52 Thus Vashishta asked the well being of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.52 "The great resplendent king Vishvamitra respectfully replied Sage Vashishta saying, everything is fine.
vrm.1.52 "Then at the end of discussions, oh, Rama the legatee of Raghu, that godly Sage Vashishta smilingly spoke this sentence to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.52 I wish to offer guestship befitting to your status, oh, great forceful king Vishvamitra, to a matchless one like you and to this military force of yours, kindly accept it from me.
vrm.1.52 So said Vashishta to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.52 "When sage Vashishta said in this way, that highly intellectual king Vishvamitra said to him, hospitality is deemed to have been offered to me with your reverential words, it is enough and nothing more is necessary.
vrm.1.52 Gaadhi" s son Vishvamitra then replied the eminent saint Vashishta, "Agreed! As it pleases the godly sage.
vrm.1.52 So be it! "When Vishvamitra said that way then Vashishta, the best one among meditators, and one whose blemishes are laved is gladdened, and started calling his speckled cow, namely Shabala, yclept Kaamadhenu.
vrm.1.52 So said Sage Vashishta to that Sacred Cow, Kaamadhenu, and Vishvamitra continued his narration.
vrm.1.53 Thus Sage Shataananda continued the legend of Shabala or Kaamadhenu, as a part of the legend of Vishvamitra to Rama and others.
vrm.1.53 "Oh, Rama, all of the men in the forces of Vishvamitra, who are already rejoiced and regaled by the regular feasts accorded by their king Vishvamitra, are now comparatively well gladdened when feasted by Sage Vashishta, in which they rejoiced and regaled, for a good measure.
vrm.1.53 "Partaking that feast together with the best royal ladies of palace chambers, and with the court scholars and the court priests even the king Vishvamitra, who by his nature is a kingly sage, became exultant and energetic.
vrm.1.53 "When honoured along with his advisers, ministers and attendants by way of receiving a royal banquet, king Vishvamitra then in high admiration spoke this to Vashishta.
vrm.1.53 Thus Vishvamitra said to Vashishta.
vrm.1.53 a "When Vishvamitra addressed him in that way, the reverential sage Vashishta, who is a virtue souled eminent saint, on his part replied the king in this way.
vrm.1.53 So said Vashishta to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.53 b, a Though Vashishta spoke thus Vishvamitra being an expert in sententiousness then spoke this sentence compellingly and argumentatively.
vrm.1.53 Thus Vishvamitra entreated again.
vrm.1.53 When the shrewd king Vishvamitra spoke to the reverential sage Vashishta, that sage has clearly said, whatever it is oh, king, I do not surrender Shabala, the cow.
vrm.1.53 So said Vashishta to Vishvamitra, and thus Sage Shataananda continued his narration of the legend of Sacred Cow.
vrm.1.54 "When Sage Vashishta did not yield Kaamadhenu, the milker of any desire, oh, Rama, then Vishvamitra started to seize it.
vrm.1.54 Sage Shataananda continued the narration of the legend of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.54 "While the determined king Vishvamitra dragged her away from Vashishta, oh, Rama, Shabala is saddened and tearfully mulled over stung by the anguish of her secession from the sage.
vrm.1.54 Immutable is your power as you are mightier than great mighty Vishvamitra and invincible is your dynamism.
vrm.1.54 "On hearing his sentence, oh, Rama, that Sacred Cow Shabala then created Pahlava kings, sprang forth from her mooing hums and hundreds of them annihilated the army of Vishvamitra in its entirety just while Vishvamitra is witnessing it.
vrm.1.54 a King" Vishvamitra was utterly infuriated and with wide eyed anger he started to destroy those Pahlava s with many a kind of his weaponry.
vrm.1.54 b, a "On seeing the subdual of hundreds of Pahlava s by Vishvamitra, then the Sacred Cow again generated deadly Shaka s hobnobbed with Yavana s through her mooing hums
vrm.1.54 b, a Yavana" s and Shaka s, who are wielding bowie knives and broad lances and who are clad in golden coloured dresses, and who looked like glowing fires have completely burnt down entire force of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.54 a "Then that great resplendent Vishvamitra indeed released his missiles, by which Yavana s, Kaamboja s, and the Barbara s, are rendered helter skelter.
vrm.1.54 Thus Sage Shataananda continued his narration of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.55 "Then on seeing the flurrying warriors earlier created by the Sacred Cow, Shabala, who are perplexed by the missiles of Vishvamitra, Vashishta started to motivate her, oh, wish milker, generate more forces by your yogic capacity.
vrm.1.55 Thus Sage Shataananda continued his narration about the legend of Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.55 "At that very moment, oh, Rama the legatee of Raghu, Vishvamitra s army comprising foot soldiers, Elephants, chariots and Horses is utterly slaughtered by the Yavana, Mleccha etc.
vrm.1.55 "On seeing their army utterly slaughtered by the vital spirit of Vashishta, a band of hundred sons of Vishvamitra wielding divers weapons exasperatedly sprinted forth towards that supreme meditator among all meditators.
vrm.1.55 "That sage with vital spirit, Vashishta, then in a wink rendered those sons of Vishvamitra, along with their Horses, chariots, and foot soldiers to ashes.
vrm.1.55 "On seeing his sons and his forces are utterly ruined, that very highly glorious Vishvamitra was disgraced and beset by distress.
vrm.1.55 "Like a tideless ocean his warfare did not tide him over, like a fangless serpent his hiss of warring could not fang any, like a wingless bird pitiable is his flightless plight of fightback, like a shineless sun in an eclipse, Vishvamitra plunged into a lustreless state of his own illustriousness, when his forces are ruined along with his sons.
vrm.1.55 thus saying Vishvamitra took recourse to forests.
vrm.1.55 b, "On going to the mountainsides of Himalayas, whereat it is adored by Kinnara s and Uraga s he that great practiser of ascesis, Vishvamitra, undertook an austere ascesis for the sake of beneficence of the Great God, Shiva.
vrm.1.55 "After a long lost time, Shiva, the God of Gods whose flag bears the sign of Holy Bull, has shown himself to that great saint Vishvamitra, for He is a ready boon giver.
vrm.1.55 Shiva said so to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.55 "Thus said by God Shiva to Vishvamitra of great ascesis, Vishvamitra on reverencing that Great God Shiva said this way.
vrm.1.55 Thus Vishvamitra entreated God Shiva.
vrm.1.55 a So be it! On sanctifying Vishvamitra and his aspiration thus, the God of Gods, Shiva disappeared.
vrm.1.55 Vishvamitra" who is already a mightier Kshatriya, now on acquiring missiles from the God of Gods, Shiva, will he not come forth paired up with mightiest conceit, and then will not his conceitedness be plethoric like a plethoric ocean? "By vitality Vishvamitra is like an ocean with rough riptide on a Full Moon day, and oh, Rama, he deemed that sagaciously mighty sage Vashishta is now dead.
vrm.1.55 "On seeing the turbo jetting missiles of Vishvamitra jetted by his sparkling intellect, hundreds of saints were frightened and they very speedily fled in hundreds of ways.
vrm.1.55 now I will dissipate that son of Gaadhi, Vishvamitra, like Sun demisting the mist, all the inmates of hermitage have hastily fled.
vrm.1.55 "On saying that way to the evacuees, Vashishta, the great resplendent sage and a best one among best meditators rancorously said this word to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.55 "On saying thus that extremely infuriated Sage Vashishta post hastily up heaved his baton, which is alike the fumeless Ultimate Fire of End Time, and the other baton of Yama, and affronted Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.55 Thus, Sage Shataananda continued his narration of Vishvamitra s legend.
vrm.1.56 "When Vashishta spoke in this way, the great mighty Vishvamitra brandishing Fiery missile challenged Vashishta saying, withstand this, withstand this.
vrm.1.56 Thus, sage Shataananda continued his narration of Vishvamitra s legend.
vrm.1.56 I am staying here only, you meritless Kshatriya, you may clearly display whatever prowess you have, oh, Gaadhi s son Vishvamitra, I will now ruin whatever vanity you or your missiles have.
vrm.1.56 So said Vashishta to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.56 "With his baton of Brahma Vashishta silenced that matchless and deadly Fiery missile of Gaadhi s son, namely Vishvamitra, as a deluge of water silencing a rage of fire.
vrm.1.56 Vishvamitra, the son of Gaadhi then rancorously fusilladed the missiles regulated by Gods like Varuna, Rudra, Indra, Pasupata, and even a missile which is projectile through grass blade called Ishiika.
vrm.1.56 Vishvamitra" also launched missiles named Humane, Rager, Stupefier, Hypnotiser, Yawner, Intoxicator, also thus Humidifier, Weep inducer.
vrm.1.56 "Oh, Rama, the descendent of Raghu, Vishvamitra on triggering off all these missiles then he launched the deadly Trident, Skull and Torque missiles on Vashishta, and whole thing has became a spectacular display of Vishvamitra s arsenal.
vrm.1.56 a Brahma" s son Vashishta defused all of those missiles just with his baton and when all of them are thus silenced, Gaadhi s son Vishvamitra touched off Brahma s missile.
vrm.1.56 "When Vishvamitra brandished and set up Brahma missile for launching, seeing it all the Gods keeping the Agni at their vanguard, Devarshis, Uragas along with Gandharva s are perplexed, and the triad of worlds itself is perturbed.
vrm.1.56 Though Vishvamitra is a supreme ascetic he is forestalled by you and your seraphic power, but this power of yours is equally anguishing all the worlds.
vrm.1.56 "When that great resplendent Vashishta is spoken thus by saints and Gods he composed himself, and then that estranged Vishvamitra spoke this to himself with heavy suspiration.
vrm.1.56 So thought Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.56 Thus Sage Shataananda continued his narration of Vishvamitra s legend.
vrm.1.57 "Oh, Raghava, on making that great souled Vashishta an enemy, whenever Vishvamitra reminisced over his subdual by Vashishta, he is seethed at heart and heaved sighs repeatedly.
vrm.1.57 Then on going to southern quarter with his prime queen, that great ascetic Vishvamitra self collectedly conducted a highly astounding ascesis subsisting only on fruits and tubers.
vrm.1.57 Thus Sage Shataananda continued his narration of Vishvamitra s legend.
vrm.1.57 a "Then Vishvamitra begot sons named Havispanda, Madhuspanda, Dhridhanetra and Mahaaratha, who conduct themselves in candour and chivalry.
vrm.1.57 "At the close of one thousand years of ascesis Brahma, the Grandparent of all worlds, revealed Himself to Vishvamitra and spoke these words mellowly to ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra, oh, son of Kushika, Vishvamitra, you have won the worlds of kingly sages by your ascesis.
vrm.1.57 a "On hearing that Vishvamitra is down faced with disgrace, and while high anguish prevailed over him, he rancorously soliloquised this.
vrm.1.57 Thus Vishvamitra thought.
vrm.1.57 "Oh, Rama of Kakutstha, deciding in this way in his heart of hearts that self willed Vishvamitra again undertook a supreme ascesis as he is a great ascetic.
vrm.1.58 b, a "Though that resolutely self assured king seethed for one night and day for this mishap, then went to the ascetically prosperous Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.58 oh, Rama, sage Vishvamitra because sympathetic.
vrm.1.58 "The great resplendent sage and highly generous Vishvamitra firstly said to that king who is in a terrible aspect let safety betide you, and then spoke on this sentence to him.
vrm.1.58 "Then that king who is accurst to a state of profaner on listening that sentence, as a diligent sentence maker spoke this sentence with his palms adjoined to the sententious sage Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.58 b, a Oh, gentle Vishvamitra, my aspiration is nothing but to go to heaven with my body.
vrm.1.58 Oh, eminent sage Vishvamitra, but my mentors are not deriving complete contentment by my pursuit.
vrm.1.58 Thus Trishanku prayed for the grace of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.58 So said Sage Shataananda to Rama and others continuing the legend of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.59 Vishvamitra", the son of Kushi, piteously spoke this mellowly sentence to king Trishanku who spoke thus, and who in reality attained a state of profaner.
vrm.1.59 I deem that heaven is handy to you, oh, king of subjects, as you have approached the all sheltering Vishvamitra and sought shelter.
vrm.1.59 Thus Vishvamitra solaced Trishanku.
vrm.1.59 "On saying thus to Trishanku that great resplendent Vishvamitra ordered his highly righteous and astutely brilliant sons to organise the arrangements for the ritual.
vrm.1.59 Vishvamitra" calling forth all of his disciples said this sentence, invite all the eminent sages who are well read in many Veda s, along with their disciples and friends, and their ritwiks, the conductors of rituals, and even the sons of Vashishta, at my order.
vrm.1.59 Thus Vishvamitra ordered his disciples.
vrm.1.59 "On listening that word of Vishvamitra his disciples went to all directions inviting all by his order, and then the Vedic scholars started to arrive from all provinces.
vrm.1.59 b, a "All of the disciples have returned to the fulgently resplendent sage Vishvamitra, and reported the words spoken by all the Vedic scholars.
vrm.1.59 Thus, the disciples have started to inform Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.59 b, a Though the Brahmans or the high souled sages are now embarrassed by Vishvamitra, how can they go to heaven even after their demise, partaking of the food of a profaner? b, a
vrm.1.59 Oh, tigerly sage Vishvamitra, all the sons of Vashishta including Mahodaya spoke these derisive sentences with their eyes reddening in anger.
vrm.1.59 Thus, the disciples reported to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.59 b, a "The eminent sage Vishvamitra having heard those words of the sons of Vashishta from all of his disciples, said this rancorously with bloodshot eyes.
vrm.1.59 b, a "On saying this much sentence of curse among the sages who have already arrived, that great resplendent, greatly ascetic, great sage Vishvamitra paused.
vrm.1.60 "The great resplendent Vishvamitra on knowing through his ascetic power about the ruination of the sons of Vashishta, along with Mahodaya, proclaimed this amidst the observance of sages.
vrm.1.60 So Vishvamitra started to speak to sages.
vrm.1.60 Thus Vishvamitra advised the conductors of the ritual.
vrm.1.60 b, a "On listening the words of Vishvamitra all those great sages have come together and quickly discussed among themselves about what is agreeable to righteousness, as they are the knowers of scruples of conducting Vedic rituals, but such a ritual is desultory.
vrm.1.60 Whatever Vishvamitra says let it be translated entirely and exhaustively into deeds called ritual.
vrm.1.60 This Vishvamitra is the legatee of Sage Kushi, and indeed he is a saint similar to Ritual fire besides being an extremely furious person.
vrm.1.60 b, As such, let the Vedic ritual be conducted intending and enabling Trishanku, the legatee of Ikshvaku, to go to heaven by the ritualist prowess of Vishvamitra, therefor you conduct yourselves and you all preside over it.
vrm.1.60 a Concluding thus those great sages undertook concerned works of that Vedic ritual and the great resplendent Vishvamitra himself became its principal officiator.
vrm.1.60 "After a long time that highly ascetical Vishvamitra welcomed all the Gods to receive their allotted oblations in that ritual.
vrm.1.60 b, a "Then all of the Gods who are invited to partake of the oblation have not come forward to receive their allotments, and then the great saint Vishvamitra, obsessive with fury, furiously lifted up a wooden oblational scoop, and said this to Trishanku.
vrm.1.60 Vishvamitra said so to Trishanku.
vrm.1.60 b, a "Once the sage Vishvamitra said those words, oh, Rama of Kakutstha, that king Trishanku soared to heaven with his mortal body, before the very eyes of other sages.
vrm.1.60 b, a "When Mahendra said so, Trishanku loudly exclaiming at the ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra saying, save me, save me, and fell down from heaven.
vrm.1.60 b, a "On hearing the exclamatory sentence of Trishanku who is shouting it loudly, Vishvamitra assumed an abnormal anger and also said, wait.
vrm.1.60 b, a "Like the other Creator that resplendent Vishvamitra, himself staying among sages, has replicated Southerly Ursa Major in southerly direction.
vrm.1.60 And still remaining amidst of sages that highly reputed sage Vishvamitra further started to replicate the stereotyped stocks of stars sequentially, resorting to the southern hemisphere, as he is convulsed in anger at Indra.
vrm.1.60 "On replicating the stereotyped stocks of other galaxies and stars, and while fury continued to blemish him Vishvamitra said, I will now clone an alternative Indra, or let that realm created by me remain without any Indra, and when he is about to proceed to clone even Gods in his wrath, the Gods are startled.
vrm.1.60 b, "The Gods are highly startled at Vishvamitra s creation, and they along with Rakshasas and with observances of hermits addressed the great souled Vishvamitra with placatory words.
vrm.1.60 Oh great fortunate Vishvamitra, this king Trishnaku is damned by his mentor, hence oh, ascetically wealthy sage, he is not at all eligible to go to heaven with his mortal body.
vrm.1.60 So said Gods to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.60 So said Vishvamitra to Gods.
vrm.1.60 "When all the Devas are addressed thus they replied the eminent saint Vishvamitra saying, so be it! Safe you be! Let all the created objects prevail in their respective places.
vrm.1.60 So said Gods to Vishvamitra in deterring his further cloning of a simulative Universe.
vrm.1.60 b, a "Even the benign souled Vishvamitra, when reverenced by all Gods, that great resplendent sage without stirring himself from among the sages said to all Gods, Agreed!
vrm.1.61 "Oh, manly tiger Rama, on giving farewell to those sages who came at his invitation and who have started to go back after the ritual of Trishanku is over, then that great resplendent Vishvamitra spoke to all of the sages who are forest dwellers that remained with him.
vrm.1.61 Thus Shataananda continued to narrate the legend of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.61 Thus Vishvamitra said to fellow sages in his camp.
vrm.1.61 "On saying thus that most brilliant and great saint Vishvamitra performed an unhindered and rigorous ascesis subsisting only on fruits and tubers after reaching the lakeside of holy lakes.
vrm.1.62 Thus Sage Shataananda continued the legend of Shunashepa, as a part of Vishvamitra s legend.
vrm.1.62 "While the king Ambarisha is taking rest that highly brilliant Shunashepa came to the lakeside of main Holy Lake with high anxiety, and there he indeed saw his maternal uncle Sage Vishvamitra who is performing ascesis along with other sages.
vrm.1.62 a Shunashepa" became pitiable and sulky faced by strain and thirst, oh, Rama, and he immediately fell in the lap of saint Vishvamitra saying this sentence.
vrm.1.62 Thus Shunashepa appealed to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.62 "On hearing that sentence of Shunashepa and on pacifying him in many ways, Vishvamitra of higher ascesis, indeed said this to his sons.
vrm.1.62 Thus Vishvamitra said to his sons.
vrm.1.62 "But on hearing the saying of the sage, oh, Rama, the best of men, Madhushyanda and the other sons of Vishvamitra said this, haughtily and disparagingly.
vrm.1.62 Thus the sons of Vishvamitra replied their father.
vrm.1.62 "On listening that saying of his sons that eminent sage Vishvamitra started to curse them while fury reddened his eyes.
vrm.1.62 Thus Vishvamitra cursed his sons.
vrm.1.62 Thus Vishvamitra taught two Vedic hymns to the boy.
vrm.1.62 Shunashepa" having taken those two hymns from Vishvamitra very attentively has instantly gone to that lion king Ambarisha and indeed spoke to him.
vrm.1.62 "When Shunashepa is tied to ritual post he immensely pleased two Gods, namely Indra and Upendra as well, with those two hymns he got from Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.62 "Oh, Rama, the best among men, even the virtue souled great ascetic Vishvamitra again performed ascesis at the same Holy lakeside for another thousand years.
vrm.1.62 Thus Sage Shataananda continued the narration of Vishvamitra s legend.
vrm.1.63 "When thousand years are completed in ascesis and when that great saint Vishvamitra took a bath of solemnity, all the Gods have come forward wishing to accord the fruit of that ascesis to Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 Thus Sage Shataananda continued the legend of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 "On speaking to Vishvamitra in that way Brahma returned to heaven, and that highly vigorous Vishvamitra again performed a great ascesis.
vrm.1.63 "That great resplendent sage Vishvamitra has seen Menaka who is incomparable in her mien and comparable to an electric flash in a black cloud, while she is swimming in the holy lake.
vrm.1.63 a "When he said thus to her, oh, Raghava, then she made a stopover there and ten years rolled by comfortably, and oh, gentle Rama, because of her staying Vishvamitra is indeed faced with a great hindrance in his ascesis.
vrm.1.63 b, a "Then after the lapse of that ten year period Vishvamitra became doleful with distress and he is enwrapped in humiliation, as it were, and, oh, Rama, Raghu s legatee, then a resentful thought occurred to him.
vrm.1.63 But on seeing the scared Apsara Menaka, who is shivering and waiting with suppliantly adjoined palms, he sent her away with pleasant words, and he that Vishvamitra indeed went to the northern Himalayan mountain.
vrm.1.63 "All Gods coming together with assemblages of sages have approached Brahma and conveyed that, this Vishvamitra, the son of Kushika, may duly be given the epithet of Maharshi, Exalted Sage.
vrm.1.63 b, a "On listening the advice of Gods, Brahma, the Grandparent of all the worlds, spoke these pleasant words to the ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.63 And on hearing the words of Brahma he that ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra became obeisant and replied the Grandparent adjoining his palms suppliantly.
vrm.1.63 Thus Vishvamitra said to Brahma.
vrm.1.63 "While the Gods who came here along with Brahma have returned, that great sage Vishvamitra undertook another round of ascesis by standing in levitation, upraising his arms, and subsisting on air alone.
vrm.1.63 b, a "In summer he became the Five Fire Ascetic, in rainy season open sky is his rooftop, and in winter water is his reclining bed even by day or by night, and thus that ascetically wealthy Vishvamitra indeed undertook a severe ascesis in this way, for another thousand years.
vrm.1.63 "Then Indra along with all the assemblages of the Maruts spoke to Rambha, the Apsara, words that are advantageous to himself, but disadvantageous to the son of sage Kushi, namely Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.64 Oh, Rambha, now you have to undertake this very great task of Gods in enchanting Vishvamitra with a craving caused by lust, for lusting after you.
vrm.1.64 Thus Sage Shataananda continued the legend of Vishvamitra to Rama.
vrm.1.64 Oh, chief of Gods, Indra, that great saint Vishvamitra is a dangerous one and undoubtedly he releases his deadly anger on me.
vrm.1.64 "On hearing the sentence of Indra she adopted an unexcelled physique, and on becoming a pulchritudinous damsel she started to entice Vishvamitra with giggly grins.
vrm.1.64 Vishvamitra" has heard melodious trilling tune of songbird, and while his heart is highly gladdening about the ambience, he incidentally saw and stared at Rambha.
vrm.1.64 "On knowing that as an escapade of the Thousand eyed Indra, Vishvamitra is enwrapped in wrath and he cursed Rambha.
vrm.1.64 Vishvamitra cursed Rambha in this way.
vrm.1.64 "Thus the great resplendent Vishvamitra became compunctious when that great saint could not contain his anger in uttering an angry curse.
vrm.1.64 "Then Rambha has become a rocklike statue by that great curse of Vishvamitra, and having heard the words of that great saint Kamadeva and Indra also took flight.
vrm.1.64 "Owing to his angering that great resplendent Vishvamitra is now divested of his ascetical merit, and he has no peace of mind owing to ungovernable senses.
vrm.1.64 So said Vishvamitra to himself.
vrm.1.65 "That great saint Vishvamitra then leaving off the snowbound Himalayas on north, oh, Rama, he reached eastern quarter and undertook rigorous ascesis.
vrm.1.65 Thus Sage Shataananda continued the legend of Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.65 "On one day when those thousand years of ascesis with the rigorous pledge of Vishvamitra are being completed, and when he started to eat his meal, oh, Rama, best of Raghu s dynasty, Indra arrived there disguising himself as a Brahman and requested for the readily available meal.
vrm.1.65 b, "Then that godly Vishvamitra willingly gave away all the readied meal to that Brahman, and as no meal is leftover by Brahman Indra, that great ascetic Vishvamitra starved himself.
vrm.1.65 Vishvamitra did not speak a little to the Brahman in dissent as he is abided by his pledge of muteness, and he again remained in muteness and breath control.
vrm.1.65 "Then the Devas, Sages, Gandharva s, Pannagas, Uragas and Rakshasas are puzzled at the ascesis of Vishvamitra, and as their own resplendence is dulled by the ascesis of Vishvamitra, thereby they are marred by this blemish of lowered resplendence, then all of them addressed the Grandparent, Brahma.
vrm.1.65 b, Even if that great saint Vishvamitra is angered and allured in order to foil his ascetical ascendancy, by all of us and by all means oh, god, he is transcending these lures, angers, and passions by his ascesis.

vrm.1.65 b, "Then the best one among meditators Vashishta has come over there when the Gods besought him to come, and he made friendship with Vishvamitra.
vrm.1.65 He also said in this way to Vishvamitra, you are a Brahma sage.
vrm.1.65 "No doubt, you are a Brahma sage and everything will accrue to you in accordance with the sublimity of this sageship, and when Vashishta said so to Vishvamitra, all the Gods have gone away as they have come.

vrm.1.70 b, a Should an assent be given by Sage Vishvamitra, along with all the great sages present here, this equanimous Vashishta will narrate about my bloodline, lineally.
