vrm.1.24 b, a "Once upon a time, oh, Rama, mortal impurities of filth and hunger completely stained Indra when he eliminated Vritra, as he committed the sin of killing of a Brahman, where Vritra was incidentally a Brahman.
vrm.2.25 The illustrious Kausalya gave the desired fee to that chief of brahmanas and spoke as follows to Rama: "Which felicity occurred in Devendra the thousand eyed, adored by all Devas when Vritra was destroyed, let that felicity occur to you" "Which blessing was invoked by Vinata to Garuda who was setting off to bring nectar in the past may that blessing happen to you.
vrm.3.30 As with fall of Vritra or fall of Bali who are eliminated by Indra with his Thunderbolt, or as with the collapse of Namuchi who is eliminated by the same Indra just with forth or foam, Khara too is brought down.
vrm.3.50 Let not the disastrous and glowing fire like eyes of Rama, which transmogrify so when he assumes fury, burn you down as the Thunderbolt of Indra once burnt the Vritra.
vrm.4.16 Among those two there happened a deadly fight time and again using trees with branches, peaks of mountains, their own nails that are similar to the razor sharp edges of thunderbolts, and with fists, knees, feet, and arms, like the fight that once chanced between Vritra and Indra.
vrm.4.58 Once, when the elimination of Vritra was taking place at the hand of Indra, we two eagle brothers sportively desiring to surpass each
vrm.6.7 Oh, king! Having been released by the orders of your grand father Brahma, Devendra who killed Shambara and Vritra and who was adored by all Devas, went back to heaven.
vrm.6.31 O, Foolish one, with scant virtue and failed purpose! You think yourself as wise! O, Seetha! Hear about the dreadful killing of your husband in battle, as the killing of the Vritra at the hands of Indra
vrm.6.58 Vanquishers of other heroes and intrepid combatants, both of them, thirsting for fame, resembled Vritra and Indra.
vrm.6.67 That Rama slashed Kumbhakarna s head, which was looking like a huge mountain peak, having well rounded tusks and with charming and quivering ear rings, as like Indra the destroyer of strong holds, in the past, chopped off the head of Vritra, the Asura of darkness and drought.
vrm.6.67 By killing Kumbhakarna, who tormented the army of Devas and who was not defeated at any time in great battles, Rama was rejoiced in the same way as Indra was rejoiced in killing Vritra, the great Asura.
vrm.6.76 O Kumbha, the compeer of Prahlada, Bali, Indra the destroyer of Vritra, Kubera and Varuna! You alone are born with a likeness of your father Kumbhakarna who was exceedingly strong.
vrm.6.88 Those two heroes, who were difficult to overcome in battle, fought at that moment like two plants figuring in the sky and like Indra and Vritra.
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.6.92 While he was yawning with anger a fire with smoke, as though clearly burning, broke out from his mouth, as it did from the month of Vritra in the former days.
vrm.6.99 That battle was unimaginable and unapproachable, like the duel that took place between Vritra and Indra
vrm.6.108 Having lost his life, that king of Rakshasas for his part, who was endowed with terrible swiftness and invested with great splendour, fell down from the chariot to the ground like Vritra when the latter was struck down by the thunderbolt.
vrm.6.111 Having destroyed the enemy, Rama too experienced happiness, along with his army as well as with Sugreeva and Lakshmana, even as Indra the wielder of thunderbolt did on destroying Vritra.
vrm.7.6 And proclaiming their order that preparations were to be made, all the foremost Nairitas sallied forth for battle, like unto those led by Jamva and Vritra.
vrm.7.22 Hiranyakasipu, the gracaful Namuchi, and Shamvara, Nishandi and Dhumketu and Virochana s ofspring Vali, and the Daitya Shamvu that mighty monarchs, Vritra and Bana ;and Rajarshis versed in all branches of learnings and Gandharvas, and mighty Nagas, and Sages, and Pannagas and Yakshas, and swarms of Apsaras and the Earth herself containing vasty oceans and mountains and rivers and trees, at the unrolling of a Yuga all these, O mighty monarch have I brought to dissolution.
vrm.7.24 Vritra, Danu, Suka, Sambhu, Nishumbha, Sumbha, Kalanemi, Prahlada and others, Kula, Vairochana, Mridu, Jamala, Arjuna, Kansa, Kaitabha, and Madhu used to impart heat like the sun, appear resplendant like the rays, move about like air and pour showers like Indra.
vrm.7.32 As resoting to thy prowess I destroyed Namuchi, Vritra, Bali, Naraka and Samvara, so do thou make some arrengements for his destruction.
vrm.7.40 And repairing to the house of Indra, Sinhika s son, in wrath and with frowns, said to him encircled by the Devas "O Vasava !O slayer of Bala and Vritra to remove my hunger thou didst give me both the sun and moon; why thou hast then given them to another ?On account of the Parva I came to devour the sun but another Rahu came and possessed him.
vrm.7.48 Thereupon, Rama, at first saluted and went round him and then Yudhajit, the son of Kekaya, went away to his kingdom in the company of Lakshmana like unto Indra leaving for home in the company of Vishnu on the destruction of the Asura Vritra.
vrm.7.97 O thou having long arms, formerly, during the war between Devas and Asuras there flourished a highly honored Asura under the name of Vritra.
vrm.7.97 Having resolved thus and placed his son Madhureswara on the throne Vritra engaged in austerities creating terror unto all Devas.
vrm.7.97 He being thus engaged is asceticism, Indra, greatly terrified, approached Vishnu and said "O thou having long arms, by virtue of his asceticism Vritra is about to conquer all the worlds.
vrm.7.97 Thyself being enraged, O lord of Devas, Vritra shall not live even for a moment.
vrm.7.97 O Vishnu, all the Devas are waiting for thee ;do thou help them by slaying Vritra.
vrm.7.98 Hearing the words of Lakshmana, Rama, the slayer of enemies, said "O thou of firm vows, do thou at length, descibe the destruction of Vritra.
vrm.7.98 "Hearing the words of Indra and other Devas Vishnu replied From before I am bound with the high souled Vritra by the ties of fiendship.
vrm.7.98 I shall myself divide you into three classes and then forsooth your king shall be able to destroy Vritra.
vrm.7.98 Vishnu, the god of gods, having said this, the Devas replied, saying "O slayer of demons, undoubtedly, what thou hast said, shall prove true ;may victory crown thee ;we proceed now to slay Vritra.
vrm.7.98 Thereupon the highly poweiful immortals headed by Indra entered the forest where the great Asura Vritra was performing austeities.
vrm.7.98 While they were thus thinking, Indra, of thousand eyes, taking up a thunderbolt hurled it against Vritra s head.
vrm.7.98 That dreadful burning thunderbolt, like unto the fire of dissolution, falling on Vritra s head, the three Worlds were agitated.
vrm.7.98 Thereupon thinking that he has perpetrated an iniquity by slaying Vritra engaged in asceticism, Indra, out of fear, fled to the other side of Lokaloka, perpetually enshrowded with darkness.
vrm.7.98 Thou hast slain this Vritra but the sin of slaying a Brahman has visited Indra.
vrm.7.99 Having thus described at length and finished the story of Vritra s destruction Lakshmana said The mighty Vritra, the terror of the Devas, being slain, and the slayer Indra, being assailed by the sin of Brahmanicide, was bewildered and at a loss to ascetain his duty.
vrm.7.100 Hearing the words of Lakshmana and smiling, the highly effulgent descendant of Raghu, Rama, skilled in the art of speech, replied Lakshmana", O foremost of men, thou hast truly related the story of Vritra s destruction and the fruits of horse sacrifice.
