vrm.6.126 "Having killed that deer, Rama while returning to the hermitage, saw the Vulture Jatayu in the forest.
vrm.7.72 There lived for a long time a Vulture and an Owl en a mountain expending over the banks of a river, resonant with the notes of cuckoos and filled with lions, tigers and various birds, situated in a pleasant forest abounding in trees near the city of Ayodhya.
vrm.7.72 Once on a time the vicious Vulture alleging that the nest of the Owl was his own, began to quarrel with him.
vrm.7.72 Beholdng that lord of men, the Vulture said :"O preserver of humanity, thou art the foremost, of Devas and Asuras.
vrm.7.72 The Vulture having said this, the Owl began "True, it is, O king, that in him are the portions of the Moon, Indra, the Sun, Kubera and Yama, but there is in him also a portion of man.
vrm.7.72 Having invited then all and ascending his Pushpaka car, he went to the place in question, and, descending there, asked the Vulture, "How long has this nest been" made ?Tell me.
vrm.7.72 Whereto the Vulture replied "From the time when mankind were first born and spread over the four quarters of the globe have I been living in this nest.
vrm.7.72 Hearing these words, the ministers said to Rama "O thou having a large mind, what the Owl has said is true the Vulture has not spoken the truth.
vrm.7.72 It is for this that I hold, O ministers, that this house does not belong to the Vulture, but to the Owl.
vrm.7.72 Therefore, this vicious Vulture should be punished for this wicked, vicious minded one, robbing another s nest, is oppressing him.
vrm.7.72 In the interval a voice was heard in the sky stating the true facts: "O Rama, do not slay the Vulture, for it has already been reduced to ashes by the force of Gautama s asceticism.
vrm.7.72 O lord of men, this Vulture, in its pristine bith, was a heroic truthful and pure king by the name of Brahmadatta.
