||So said sage Viswamitra to Rama.
||On sojourning the remaining night on the bank of river Sona along with great sages, Viswamitra spoke when that night is elapsing into a sunny daybreak.
||"All the arms given by the wise sage Viswamitra to you, will ever protect you who are rich in good qualities"
||And Vasishta and Kasyapa and Atri and Viswamitra with Gautama and Jamadagni and Bharadwaja and also the seven sages, who for aye resided in the northern quarter, came there.
