(Book on Kishkinda)
(The book starts with the arrival in Pampa by Rama and Lakshmana. On their way to Rishya Mooka mountains from there they meet Hanuman, the minister of Sugreeva. Rama then meets Sugreeva and signs a treaty in which he agrees to kill Vali , the brother of Sugreeva , who in turn promises to help in finding out Sita. Rama clears the doubt about his ability in the mind of Sugreeva by sending an arrow through seven Maramara trees and Lakshmana throwing the skeleton of Dhundhubhi by his thumb.Later Rama kills Vali by hiding himself and sending an arrow to kill Vali who was fighting with Sugreeva. Sugreeva is crowned as king of Kishkinda. As rainy season sets in , Rama and Lakshmana live in a hut in the nearby mountain. Seeing no activity from Sugreeva , Rama deputes Lakshmana to enquire. Tara pacifies the very furious Lakshmana . The huge army summoned by Sugreeva arrives and reports. Rama becomes happy. Emissaries to different directions are sent to search for Sita. Rama gives his ring as an identity to convince Sita with Hanuman. He also tells him several private incidents that took place between him and Sita. The group lead by Hanuman and Angadha reaches the Mahendra mountain in the southern sea shore. Sampathi the elder brother of Jatayu tells them that Sita is in Lanka. Hanuman readies himself to jump over the sea.)
(Prayer to God)
The primeval god who had three type of Characters and also had three forms,
Along with all principles evolved by him , gave the first god a name and the form,
And became properly created worlds and the beings who live in that worlds
And also became the thought process of the wise men and that which is understood by them.
1.Pambai Vaavi padalam
The chapter on lake at Pambai.
(This chapter gives a picturesque description of Pamba lake and sorrow of Rama on seeing
several things in that lake .Lakshmana consoles him. Rama takes bath in Pamba lake.
In Valmiki Ramayana , Sugreeva sees him on the shores of this lake.)
3709. That lake had lot of flowers which had honey , it had red eyed elephants,
With strong hands dipping themselves but had clear waters which reflected ,
The sky with stars and clouds and looked like they all were inside it.
3710. It had clear waters like the cut crystal sheets which were polished,
And its walls were embedded with several nine varieties of lustrous gems,
And since the clear waters were reflecting it , it took the colours of concerned gems ,
And it was similar to the mind of those people who do not understand,
The truth in spite of their great learning.
3711.All over the lake the gems in great heaps were found and ,
Due to the royal male swans with coral coloured long legs ,
And very many female swans , seen together
That lake looked like the destruction less sky ,
With very many stars as well as countless full moons.
3712.It was like an ocean of pure water which was created by the matchless son of Khadhi*,
When he wanted to create the world surrounded by the cool sea , along with,
The beings that live in that world as well sages who were great expert in Vedas,
Which seem to win the cool salt water ocean, created by the four headed Lord Brahma.
3713. Though that lake was deep and seemed to tell
“ This is the lustrous habitat of great serpents,”,
Like the meaning of words written by ,
The great poets who were like the wish giving tree ,
It looked very clear till the end of the nether world.”
3714.With the greatly echoing sound of swan and other birds ,
Which sit on the petals of the fully opened lotus flowers,
It was not possible to differentiate particular sounds ,
As belonging to any specific bird and so, it was,
Similar to the shopping avenue of very big towns.
3715. The swans sitting on the lotus flowers on all sides,
Seem to say , “We are not aware of the place ,
Where Sita with black hair has been taken ,
And so due to this inability we would not see,
The face of Rama but would prefer to die”
And looked like entering the burning fire.
3716.Though the clear water of the lake was capable,
Of clearly showing the gems lying at its bottom,
Like the true wisdom getting confused due to,
The faulty ignorance coming in between and hiding ,
It had several fresh leaves inside the waters which hid that clarity.
3717.The lustrous fishes of that lake hid themselves thinking
That if Rama with a very sorrowing mind sees them ,
He may recall the eyes of her who is the symbol of chastity ,
And had parrot like voice and shed tears from eyes which never shed tears.
3718.Due to the gems which form inside the bamboo and ,
The gems that are formed inside the tusk of the cloud like,
Elephants in rut spreading the water of rut flowing like the mountain streams ,
Spreading on them , the lake looked like ,
The face of pretty maidens wearing gem studded ear studs.
3719.The Elephants with very warm water of rut ,
Dipping and playing in the clear water, making it turbid,
Were like the bangle clad prostitutes engaging in,
Continuous love play and getting pain in the body and get tired.
3720.Due to the honey that was flowing from sky touching mountains,
And water of rut surrounded by bees flowing from the elephant ,
Those who drink the water of that lake got great deal of enjoyment,
And that lake looked like the reddish mouth of ladies with pretty hair.
3721.Like those idiots who do not have any knowledge ,
Of the eighteen languages including Sanskrit shouting together,
That lake was surrounded by randomly shouting birds ,
Whose voice cannot be differentiated by others.
3722.The male swan getting separated from the female swan,
Which was tightly embracing like the soul getting separated ,
From the body , heard the honey like sound of anklets ,
Of the deva maidens coming to take bath with great concentration.
3723.That lake was having the luster of the pail of sandal paste ,
Prepared by the rich people of the cities because ,
The mountain streams were pulling along with them,
Akil and sandal logs which get seasoned in the water of the lakes.
3724. The fishes in that tank , like the men who drink the honey,
From the lips of ladies who look like deer , drank the honey ,
From lily flowers in that tank and used to swoon due to joy,
And the water crows , for proving the true nature of birth and death,
Along with the fish held in their beaks used to go in and come out of its waters.
3725, To Rama who used to eat hand full food several times like the elephant ,
The swans of the tank which were depressed showed their gait , possibly ,
Telling him that they were not capable of bringing back lady Sita,
Who was like Goddess Lakshmi and would try to do their best ,
And the lily flowers showed the prettiness of her eyes,
And the red lotus flowers showed the beauty of her lips.
3726.Scared seeing the deva maidens wearing ornaments that give out light ,
Who used to take bath in that lake daily by dipping and playing in it ,
The swans in that lake went and stood on the flowering branches ,
And looked like the maids of ladies carrying a swan toy.
3727When the shadows of the crane fell in many places ,
On the crystal like water of the lake , the playing fishes,
Thinking that the cranes have entered inside the lake,
To eat all of them became scared , while those,
Cranes were sitting on the vanchi trees drying their large wings.
3728.On one side of the lake , there was the light of the blue gem
And on the other side the light was given by the Padmaraga gems,
And due to this lotus flowers remained pretty in day and night ,
And the Chakravaka birds which were with them were like breasts of ladies.
3729. With the Valai fishes rushing like a sword thrown with great force ,
The water dogs which rolled and proceeded in the waves which make sound
Appear to dance with sound of anklets on those Valai fishes like the street magicians,
And the frogs seem to appreciate that dance by making cackling sounds.
3730.After reaching the waters of that type of lake and seeing,
The youthful swans and the lotus flowers Rama , started wailing,
Thinking about Sita who was as soft as the new leaves,
Leaving out the wisdom that is got by thinking and research.
3731.”Oh Chakravaka birds having very pretty legs , oh youthful swans,
When I am greatly sorrowing though I know that Sita who cannot tolerate
Parting with me is not here, is it proper for you not to show mercy on me ?
If you show mercy on me who is wilting due to that, would it not bring fame to you?
If you talk and console me , who has never parted with her till now ,
Would it bring a very bad name to all of you?”
3732”Oh lake , who shows the scented lotus flower and the newly opened,
Scented lily flowers just like they are ointments to apply to my burning mind,
You show her eyes and face, but can you not show me her fully at least once ?
Those who do not provide help , when they have ability to do it would not become great.”
3733.Rama seeing the opened blue lotus flowers , lily flowers , scented lotus flowers,
Leaves of Vallai climber, Kondai fishes , Varal fishes, tortoises and other things said,
“oh lake , I am seeing the different limbs of the nectar like Sita in you .
Please tell me whether those limbs thought of me when the great Rakshasa ,
Was carrying her through the sky .Please tell.”
3734 “Oh peacock who runs about in joy and who hid himself because ,
She was more prettier than you , Did your mind get cooled down,
Because Sita is not there here? You might have seem her earlier ,
And now without any mercy , you are dancing with joy,
And is it possible for me to hide from you who has one thousand eyes?”
3735.”Oh consorts of male swans , even if you are not willing ,
To come near me , please tell me something which you know about Sita?
Would not you talk to me anything? Would you do wrong to one who has not done wrong?
If she who has no waist defeats you in the prettiness of your walk ,
You should have enmity with her only and how can you hate me,
Who thinks that your gait as pretty as that of Sita.”
3736.”Oh lotus flower , who is golden shade and has scented petals,
Who has pretty pollen over which bees sing around in tamil( sweetly),
Sita is not with me and she does not stay any where else ,
And if you who are liked by her say , that she is not with you also .
How can I maintain relation with you who hides what is with you?”
3737.”Oh red netti flower which lies near the red lily plant ,
Which is like Sita’s mouth, Which lies without talking ,
And without helping me in the lake , please show me the red fruit like mouth of Sita,
Which without any fear used to come before me and talk nectar like words,
And would you not give me the honey from that mouth and the cool words.”
3738.”Oh Vallai climber , You become like the ears like the innocent Sita,
Who is like a flowering branch and since nothing else needs to be done ,
Do not you agree to help you and when things are like that ,
Iyt appears you have come without the golden ear globes ,
The ear hangings studded with pearls ,
Would you not wear them and would you still like enmity .”
3739.”oh pretty blue lotus flower which is like the pretty eyes of Sita,
Who has feet which is like the coral studded on the lotus flower.
And which has fingers painted with red cotton juice ,
Who always lives in my mind which is like a fully opened lotus flowers ,
And who has pretty hair which is like a cloud,
Would you trouble me like poison which has spread on me?”
3740. Wailing like this and taking torturous breath that Rama
Sitting on the bank of the lake with Kondrai trees with fully open flowers,
Asked with sorrow “ Seeing me breaking up due to parting with Sita,
You seem to be not bothered to console me , oh strong tree”
3741.That Rama who was the place where “mercy”, took birth,
Saw male elephants which had flow of water of rut ,
Which is surrounded by black bees feeding female elephants,
With cool leaves and feeding water in their mouth and stood there.
3742.At that time his younger brother who wore the ornament of love ,
Looked at Rama and said ,” Oh elder one , the time has gone ,
And now please take bath in this lake and salute the holy feet,
Of Lord Vishnu who has grown up like your great fame.”
3743.That Rama went from that place , due to the penance done earlier
Making even a big mountain like elephant in rut ashamed ,
Took bath in the Pamba lake where waves were lashing ,
And which was full of large number of very scented flowers.
3744.As soon as he dipped himself in that waters , the burning fire like,
Passion of his body made the waters of the lake , similar to the cool water,
In which the extremely hot iron staff of the black smith was dipped.
3745.That Rama who was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu ,
Who took the form of swan and taught the rare Vedas to Brahma,
Took bath there and as per the rules of old Veda ,
Saluted the feet of Lord Vishnu and stayed in the,
Side of a garden which was having crowd of sages and ,
The Sun with burning rays set for that day.
3746.At the time the girl called dusk arrived there and at that time,
Rama was sorrowing thinking of Sita who tied a cloth over pretty breasts ,
Who was not with him , the moon which had the painful cool rays ,
Rose up in the sky like the Sun with his hot rays.
3747.The flowers closed, The birds went and stayed in their nests,
Al animals stopped their activity , The trees and leaves closed ,
The parrots stopped talking , Peacocks stopped dancing,
Koels did not sing and The elephants stopped trumpeting .
3748. The earth started sleeping , the beings on stable mountains slept ,
The faultless watering place slept , The serpents started sleeping ,
Those beings of the sky which are praised slept , the ghosts slept,
But Rama and Lakshmana who sleep on ocean did not sleep.
3749.When the sun with hot rays rose from the sea making the faultless Rama ,
Get up from the sorrow , just like when matured wisdom comes ,
The bad karmas which are like smoke and slushy mud ,
Become sad and go away , the endless night came to an end and lotus flowers opened.
3750.Rama and Lakshmana who belonged to Kosala kingdom with sugar cane factories,
Which make great noise , like the nectar which arose in the ocean of milk with great sound,
Went on searching for Sita who was similar to the female deer of the forest
In long paths where there were ocean like gardens having mountains ,
IN the forests and with great speed travelled a long distance .
Chapter on Hanuman.
( Rama and Lakshmana climb the Rishya Mooka mountains and are seen there by Sugreeva who gets scared .Hanuman reassures Sugreeva and Mets Rama taking the form of a Brahmin. Once they get introduced fully with each other all misconceptions are removed. Hanuman goes to bring Sugreeva.
In Valmiki Ramayana Rama is sen on shores of Pamba lake and Hanuman gets introduced to them there. There Rama and Lakshmana go along with Hanuman to meet Sugreeva.)
3751. Crossing several forests and travelling in the path indicated by Sabari,
They speedily and easily climbed the Rishya mooka mountains and ,
The very strong king of monkeys who was living in that mountain,
Fearing that they may be his enemies , without knowing what to do,
Ran speedily in to a cave thnking “We will escape for now.”
3752.The monkeys who were ignorant of the purpose of coming,
Of Rama and Lakshmana thought “these people are coming ,
As per the orders of Vali who has enmity with us and,
They both have very strong bows and are looking,
Like the blue mountains . See them and think about them”
And saying this they also ran and hid in the mountain caves.
3753-3754.When in that cave Sugreeva and others were standing greatly depressed,
Assuring them not to be scared Hanuman who was like God Shiva with a low tuft ,
Who swallowed the Halahala poison when Devas were standing depressed and scared ,
Who was the matchless son of Anjana told them, “You all please stay here”,
And looking like a student examined that Rama who was like a blue mountain,
And concluded , “These people are engaged in cruel war who have taken up,
The form of the saints who are holding powerful bows” and with this doubt,
Examined them deeply using the knowledge that he has earned.
3755.”If we think that they are the primeval and ultimate leaders of all the devas,
They should be three in number but these people are only two in number ,
And they are holding bow unlike those three . Who are there in this world ,
Who are equal to them? Is there anything which is impossible for them to do,
How can I judge or understand easily about their state of affairs?”
3756.”They both look like people who are sorrowing and due to that,
They appear to have a very depressed mind and they do not appear,
As persons who get sorrowed easily , They are not devas of the heaven,
They are human beings and they look like people who are ,
Searching a great thing , which would make their mind dull.”
3757. “They are the people of very good character who follow Dharma,
And they would consider Dharma as their only wealth and their acts ,
Also indicate that they are not searching any other thing ,
And I feel that a problem has come, to their thing which is like nectar,
And they are searching for that rare thing on both their sides.”
3758. “They are people who do not have the thing called “anger”,
They have ocean like mercy , they do not any act that is bad,
But do only acts that are good , They are people who have
A form which would make even Lord Indra would be scared
They have good character which makes others scared,
They have a look which makes others scared ,
And they have a power which would make god of death scared.”
3759. That Hanuman due to his great characteristics was only ,
Comparable to himself , after thinking about several aspects,
In several ways , after staring at them , with a mind that was ,
Melting in love for them , stood there like the loving one who has seen,
Another who left and went away from him.
3760.Even the wild animals like Lions and tigers, which had cruel eyes,
Huge mouth and teeth which had better luster than lightning
Were looking at them like they were seeing their own children and were following them,
And were staring them with great love and Hanuman thought,
“Why should I consider them as enemies and get worried?”
3761.” All birds like peacock are getting sad because the Sun,
Was falling on their gem like body , opened their wings fully ,
Surrounded them like boundary walls and were following them,
And the crowds of clouds which were seen densely ,
Everywhere were slowly following them sprinkling water on them,
3762”.The stones which were giving heat like the burning fire ,
Whenever their soft lotus like feet touches any of them ,
Converted themselves in to fresh flowers with honey ,
Which were extremely soft and provided them comfort,
And wherever they go the trees and grass appeared to salute them,
By bending themselves and does this indicate ,
That these people were Gods of Dharma.” He thought
3763. He further thought “are these the gods who remove the sorrow of birth,
Who destroy the old Karmas which are the reasons for such sorrow , who grant,
The salvation from which there is no return and not the life in the land of god of death?
My bones are melting, I am getting more and more measureless love towards them ,
There seem to be no limit for my love towards them, I am not able to understand the reason?”
3764. Thinking like this Hanuman who had a mind of purity , stood before them ,
As soon as both of them came and said, “Let your arrival wipe away all sorrow”.
And then Rama who was merciful asked him “Who are you? ,
Where from are you coming?” and Hanuman started answering him,
3765.“Oh Lord who has a pretty body which is blue like the cloud , who has red eyes,
Which shine like the lotus flower, which is open and never fades for the cool snow ,
And which is like poison to all ladies , I was born to Wind God and Anjana Devi,
And I would tell you that my name is Hanuman.”
3766. That Hanuman whose shoulders are higher then any mountain system ,
And which carries great fame told, “I assist the son of the Sun God ,
With shining hot rays who is living in this mountain and who noticing ,
Your arrival became greatly happy and wanted me to find out ,
Who you are and I have come to fulfill that purpose.”
3767.Rama who had a great bow after hearing the reply of Hanuman,
And understanding thay there is no body who have better qualities than him,
And concluding that ability , good characters , the humility which comes out of knowledge ,
And wisdom were all completely merged in him , started telling Lakshmana.
3768.”Oh young hero with the bow on your shoulders , was it not clear,
From his reply that there is no knowledge which he has not learnt,
Which lead to increase in his fame and there is no one in the world,
Who has not mastered the ocean of Vedas like him ?
Is He who is the master of words, Lord Brahma himself
Or is he Lord Shiva who would be able to answer everything?”
3769-3770.”Oh son, his form is not the form of the Brahmachari that we see,
And I have clearly understood that he has very many specialties ,
And great ability which make him like one who is the axis of the entire world.
And later you would understand that what I say is true” and after saying ,
This to Lakshmana looking at Hanuman he asked, “Where does ,
Sugreeva , the king of monkeys live? We have come here with a desire to meet him,
As well as join with him in this place and so please show us,
That Sugreeva who travels in the path of Dharma so that we know him.”
3771.Hanuman said, “who else are there comparable to you who have shoulders,
Which are like the mountains carrying the earth in this entire earth,
Which is spread limitlessly within the horizons and who are divinely pure?
If you have come to meet Sugreeva , with an intention of supporting him,
Then the penance done controlling the five senses is indeed great.”
3772.”Oh Lord who have shoulders bigger than mountains , due to ,
The merciless son of Indra(Vali) driving out the son of the Sun God (Sugreeva),
He became scared and has become lonely to bear the very great sorrow ,
And is living with me in this mountain with great streams ,
And you have come to facilitate wealth coming back to him.”
3773.” All the beings in this world that does not reduce , give in charity ,
Whatever they like , and perform and complete the Yagas and try to do,
All the rituals done by wise elders from time immemorial and is there ,
A great Dharma than giving protection to those who are greatly scared,
Of the one who is an enemy of their clan and who is like God of death.”
3774.”Since you are the Lord who has the power of creation ,
Of the devas who do not blink their eyes to beings ,
Which are fixed as well as moving And have the capacity of protecting
The three types of seven worlds , it is easy to tell for us that you would protect,
Only us as we who seek protection from you who are like Lord Subramanya ,
And is there any other better benefit that would come to us.”
3775.That Hanuman who was like a fence guarding truth looking at them asked,
“What shall I tell about who you are , to my clan leader, Sugreeva. Please tell ?”
And then Lakshmana who was was wearing the long heroic anklets ,
Without getting tired , narrated every thing about them
In proper order and with great clarity so that Hanuman will understand it.
3776-3777.”That king Dasaratha who had the royal umbrella , was born in the clan of Sun,
And had ruling scepter which was big and had great luster and he was,
The great one who ruled all over the earth and that valorous one who for the sake of Devas ,
Killed Sambara and other Asuras and had done several fire sacrifices,
And was capable of ruling the earth and heaven and ,
He had a view point which was personification of mercy,
And he rode on elephants with flowing rut , strong tusks and dots ,
In their faces and fought the war along with his great bow ,
And he further had great wisdom and the scepter ,
And no Kings called Manu where equal to him and he was ruling ,
Over the kingdom of Ayodhya which had golden palaces and big boundary walls,:
3778.“This best among the valorous men is the son of that great Dasaratha,
And as per the order of his step mother , with great sense if responsibility ,
Gave away the wealth of kingship which was his to his younger brother,
And reached this big and great forest and his name is Rama,
And I am assisting him who has great ability with the long bow.”
3779.And then he told him about the story from the birth of Rama ,
Till the base , and cruel cheating done by Ravana and told ,
Everything in great detail without leaving out anything.
Hearing all that that son of wind god with great joy saluted the feet of Rama.
3780.When he saluted him , Rama asked him, “how is it that you ,
Who are a Brahmin and who is an expert has done this act which is not right,
As it is not Dharma “* and hearing that that victorious Hanuman who had ,
Strong and very big shoulders said, “Oh lord who has the scepter,
And red eyes like the lotus flower , I also am born in the clan of monkeys.”
*Brahmins were not supposed to salute any other caste.
3781. That Hanuman who had come to remove the solitary nature of Dharma(Rama),.
Making Rama and Lakshmana who were like a form taken by lightning ,
Greatly surprised took a mega form which was Making inadequate ,
The description that it was a personification of Vedas and Sastras,
And Whose shoulders were taller than the golden mountain of Meru .
3782. That Rama who was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu who had measured ,
The three worlds by his two steps , who had lotus like eyes,
And who was armed with the divine wheel could not see the golden face ,
Of Hanuman who was wearing ear globes and that huge form of Hanuman,
Who was taught all great books of eternity by Lord Sun,
Was like something which cannot be properly described by others.
3783.Rama who had very big eyes resembling the lotus flower without stalk ,
Told his younger brother, “Oh lad , He is looking like the great principle of God,
Who was beyond the three characters Rajasa, Thamasa and Sathwa ,
Who has not lost its luster of wisdom and which was beyond the,
Knowledge of the perennial Vedas and the faultless philosophy ,
And which had decided to assume the form of a monkey.”
3784.He further said, “we have now seen a good omen as we have ,
Now got this great Hanuman with us and because of that ,
Sorrow would not be there with us any more , pleasure has now reached us,
Oh lad who has a bow , If a hero like this one , is doing jobs,
As per the orders of the Lord of the monkeys Sugreeva ,
Can we tell any thing about the status of the great Sugreeva?”
3785.Looking at Rama and Lakshmana who told like this ,,
Who had a very joyful face and who had mountain like shoulders,
That lion of the monkey said, “Oh Victorious ones , I would now ,
Go from here and bring Sugreeva with me , please wait “
And then taking their leave he went away speedily from there.
3.Natpu Kot Padalam
The chapter on friendship.
(Hanuman briefs Sugreeva about Rama , when they were talking about the past of Sugreeva, Rama promised that he would kill all enemies of Sugreeva “ . But when Rama enquires about the whereabouts of wife of Sugreeva, Hanuman in details tells him about the story of Sugreeva. He also tells him Vali will get half the strength of any enemy fighting with him. Rama in enraged further and promises that he would kill Vali. Ufortunately Sugreeva is not convinced. Hanuman suggests , Sugreeva to test skill of Rama by asking him to send an arrow through one of the Maramaras.
In Valmiki Ramayana Sugreeva tells Rama about the dropping of her ornaments in that mountain by a lady who was being abducted. Rama identifies those ornaments of Sita. When Rama gets sad Sugreeva consoles him. Again the detailed story of enmity between Vali and Sugreeva is narrated by Sugreeva Vali while entering the cave in the version to fight Mayavi that blood will come out of the cave .)
3786.That Hanumnan who was very famous and had a pretty shoulders,
Which were like Mandhara mountain , thinking all the good qualities of Rama,
Who was born in the clan of Manu and thought that now they were all saved,
And approached Sugreeva who had very great rage which was suitable for war.
3787.And then he told Sugreeva who was the son of the sun God that,
“The God of death who can kill Vali Who wore a scented garland,
Who had immeasurable strength Has already arrived “ and,
Danced like Lord Shiva who had swallowed the Halahala poison .
3788.”They (Rama and Lakshmana) are like the nectar to the life in danger,
Of those who live in earth, live in heaven, ,Live in other worlds ,
Live in eight directions ,who are in thought , who are doing work ,
Who are talking , who are inside the eye , who have enemies ,
And who have great wounds in the body caused by those enemies.”
3789.”They are the sons of Dasaratha who ruled over the entire earth,
Who wore heroic anklets on his feet which was saluted by ,
All the kings who had an army of elephants which had covered their faces,
And they have great wisdom , great beauty and have come ,
Due to fate and would easily help you to get your kingdom.”
3790.”They are just people , they have great mercy , they are firm,
And stable in their path of justice , they have greatness more than every body,
They have earned great wisdom without any one teaching them ,
They have great fame and they have many cruel weapons ,
Which was given to them by sage Viswamithra who is the son of Khadhi.”
3791.”That Rama made the Thadaga who was rushing towards them ,
With a great spear roll on the ground and killed her son,
By bending his bow and he gave Ahalya , who had a form of a stone,
Her very pretty form, just by the dust of his feet.”
3792”. When that Rama who had a perfect body was born first among the children,
Entered the city of Mithila and bent the bow called Tryambaka ,
Which was owned by Lord Shiva who broke teeth of Sun God and Rama broke it .”
3793.”He who accepted the kingdom by one word of king Dasaratha ,
Who had an army of horses with manes but by the order of his step mother,
Who has great chastity he gave the country surrounded ,
By the ocean with conches along with all its wealth ,
To his younger brother Bharata and has come to this forest.”
3794. “This Rama destroyed the strength of Parasurama ,
Who had the lustrous axe with which he uprooted all his enemies,
And pardoned him, and he also destroyed Viradha ,
Who was like darkness and took him away from this world.”
3795.”He also killed Khara and his Rakshasas along with their ocean ,
Like army and rolled their heads down on earth by bending his bow ,
He had reduced the burden of sorrow of the eight guardians of directions ,
Like Indra by killing all their enemies and he has great strength ,
Which makes even Lord Shiva and other devas greatly surprised>’
3796.”This Rama who is in the human form is no one but Lotd Vishnu,
Who sleeps on the ocean of milk and who is saluted by all the devas ,
And so make friendship with this very great one and he is the one,
Who became God of death to Mareecha who had unmatched ,
Strength who came before him as a magical deer.”
3797. “Even the great Asura called Kabandha who had angry shoulders ,
And long strong hands and who used to kill all beings in all directions ,
Were killed by him and then leaving his body which was a liability,
And similar to Sabari attained the great salvation and became ,
Respected by Devas, and these can only be told by people lke me.”
3798. “Oh son of Sun God , the sages and others from the very beginning ,
And since limitless days expecting that Rama and Lakshmana would come to this forest,
Were doing penances to the best of ability , got freedom from the tie ,
Of birth and death and attained salvation and based on that,
I would not be able to tell what type of persons are Rama and Lakshmana.
3799.”Oh Lord , the ignorant Ravana who is the king of Rakshasas,
Using methods of cheating has kidnapped Rama’s wife from the cruel forest,
And Rama and Lakshmana who were searching for , due to the penance you did,
And due to your having a pure mind want to become friends with you.”
3800.”Oh Lord who is great in wisdom , they have kept mercy on us ,
And so Vali the son of Indra would attain destruction immediately ,
So start now and come with me “ said Hanuman who knew the ,
Ways of justice of kings and who was a counselor to Sugreeva.
3801.That Sugreeva who understood all the words by his intelligence ,
Said, “Oh Gold like Hanuman , since I have you , who is greatly wise ,
As my companion , there is nothing which is impossible to me .
Come with me” and along with Hanuman reached divine feet of Rama.
3802. Sugreeva the son of Sun God saw Rama who was like an emerald mountain,
Who had a pretty face without the pretty ear globes , with eyes which looked with coolness,
And who was like the full moon embraced by clouds and looked like fully opened lotus flowers.
3803.Sugreeva stood there for a long time looking at Rama and Lakshmana ,
Who were looking like all the luck of the creatures of this world created by,
The four faced Lord Brahma who was born on a lotus flower ,
And divided in to two divine forms of valorous heroes having huge soldiers.
3804.It became clear to him that “Lord Vishnu who is the God of the Devas ,
Had changed his form and has taken this birth and has come as a man ,
And so it appeared that Lord Shiva who had ganges on his head and Lord Brahma ,
And various crowds of Devas were defeated by the Human race,”
3805. Sugreeva thinking like this got drowned in the tumultuous ocean of love,
Created by more and more ebbing love from him but did not try to come up ,
And was looking at Rama with great joy and approached Rama,
And that very great lord , extended his long lotus like hands,
And received him hospitably and sweetly said to him, “please be seated”.
3806.That faultless Rama who has completely uprooted desires from mind,
Joined with the king of the monkey clan for destroying ,
The Rakshasas who have never- decreasing strength and who were,
The unsuitable enemies of darkness and for establishing ,
Various types of Dharmas at the very proper and suitable time,
And they also were like the Sun and moon joining together on a new moon day.
3807. Those valorous ones who joined together for the purpose,
Of succeeding in doing the intended act were joined ,
IN the great penance done in their earlier birth and ,
The efforts they were taking to achieve their results in this birth,
And for completing uprooting the Rakshasas who were the bad fate ,
Joined together like the known knowledge and philosophy.
3808. When they were assembled there , The son of Sun God ,
Looking at Rama said, “Oh Lord who has all the types of wealth ,
I have come and joined with you who is the chief of all the worlds,
And who has all sort of good qualities and so who is there ,
Who have done more penance than me for getting rid of bad Karma,
And if fate itself is going to tell like this, What is there now which is impossible?”
3809 .Rama looked at Sugreeva and told , “Oh sir. That Sabari ,
Who has done faultless penance told us , the state in which,
You have reached this Rishya Mooka mountain and we have come here,
Hoping to get relieved of the great sorrow which benumbed us “
And when he told like this the king of monkeys told the following .
3810. “My elder brother Vali came chasing me , who was born after him,
Extending his large hand till we reached past this world,
Which place was surrounded by darkness and I am alive because ,
This mountain protected me and protected my rare soul and so
I have come to seek your protection and it is your Dharma to protect me.”
3811. Rama saw with great mercy the monkey king who told like this,
And gave an oath “In the pleasures and sorrow that belonged to you ,
Excepting those which you have experienced earlier ,
I would remove all your sorrows and all the sorrows ,
That come to you in future are equal to me and you.”
3812. “ What else need I tell you? All those who gave sorrow to you,
In heaven and earth are ones who gave sorrow to me and even if they are bad people ,
All your friends are my friends also. Your relations are my relations also ,
And from now onwards you are a friend who is like my soul.” Said Rama,
3813.Considering the words of the faultless Rama is the truth and are,
Greater even more than the Vedic sayings, the crowd of monkeys cheered,
And the son of Anjana had his hairs stand up which subsided after wards ,
Devas filled the earth with flowers and clouds caused Rain.
3814.At that time the lion like son of Anjana stood up and saluted Rama ,
By falling at his feet and said, “Oh son of Dasaratha who has pillar like shoulders,
Let you and your friend live long and now both of you should ,
Reach your palace and we desire to see you there.
What is your opinion about it?” “and the valorous Rama said it is good and agreed to it.
3815.The son of Sun God , Rama , and Lakshmana and the lion among the monkeys ,
Surrounded by the harsh army of monkeys , followed and greeted by the God of Dharma ,
Reached a flower filled garden which had Pongamia and citrus trees and lotus ponds,
And which was better than the heavens which is the land for enjoying pleasures.
3816.In that garden Sandal and Akil trees were densely planted and it had,
Huge crystal rocks which looked like bed of water , and it had depressions,
Embedded with nine types of gems , long banks with divine trees,
And the deva maids were playing in the water and swinging on swings tied on trees.
3817.Like uneducated people standing before the ocean of very wise people ,
Who had tireless knowledge not being noticed , due to the great shine,
Of the embedded gems in that garden sun light and moon light did not seem important.
3818. In this sweet garden with all these specialties Rama and Lakshmana ,
Along with the king of monkeys were seen sitting on a seat of pure flowers,
And with great camaraderie started talking about several aspects.
3819.The monkeys brought roots and fruits which were all pure ,
That Rama who is the purest of all , after taking bath ,
Took his seat with great pleasure and became a good guest to Sugreeva.
3820. When they were sitting with great love , Rama after the feast,
Unable to see the wife of the host , thought for a while and asked,
“Are you also separated from your wife who shares the family life with you?”
3821. When Rama asked Sugreeva like this , Hanuman stood like a mountain,
And saluting with his folded hands addressed Rama and told,
“Oh Lord who stands by justice , there is something that I need to tell you,
And so please hear it from the beginning to end.”
3822.”There is an individual called Vali who has limitless strength ,
Who has the blessing of Lord Shiva who is the protecting fence ,
For the limitless ocean of Vedas and who sits on Kailasa mountain .”
3823.”Along with the specially mentioned devas , standing before the asuras,
Making the rotating Mandhara mountain making its form thin
Making the very angry huge serpent spit out fire,
He who has very powerful shoulders churned the ocean of milk.”
3824.”He is the one who has the entire power of the four elements ,
Water, fire , earth and wind which never get destroyed,
And he had the power to jump from the mountain of horizon,
Surrounded by the oceans at the border to this mountain.”
3825. “If one wants to fight with him and then face him for war,
He would get half of their great strength and he daily,
Goes to the boundary of the eight directions ,
And salutes the divine feet of Lord Shiva who has eight forms.”
3826.”Wind cannot travel with the same speed as Vali ,
The Spear of Lord Subrahamanya would not enter his chest,
And the rule of Ravana and his royal umbrella,
Cannot enter any place where his tail has not entered.”
3827”.If that Vali gets up and takes his steps , then,
The mountains like Meru would get completely uprooted ,
And by his huge shoulders , the sky, the cloud ,
Sun as well as the Moon would be completely hidden.”
3828.”He is as strong as the angry boar which carried the earth,
By its horn and the big tortoise that supported the Mandhara mountain,
And it is doubtful that even if the Lord Narasimha who split ,
The chest of Hiranya comes personally , whether he can subdue him.”
3829. “Adhi Sesha with is completely spread one thousand heads ,
Finds the earth very difficult to carry due to its very dense weight ,
Standing erect and carries it lying down all day long , but,
That Vali who lives in Kishkinda mountain can carry it easily even while walking.”
3830.”Oh Lord who achieved victory due to your great strength ,
The property of the tumultuous sea water never climbing to its shore,
The face why the very strong Sun and the Moon travelling in chariots,
Are all because they fear that Vali would become angry and not due to any other reason.”
3831.”He who has strength even to push the Meru mountain
Has an army of seventy vellam* monkeys of great shoulder strength ,
Oh Charitable one, due to the great strength of that Vali ,
All the beings are living with great unified mind.”
* one elephant , three horses and five foot soldiers
3832.” Due to the fear that they would be destroyed if Vali gets angry,
Before the residence of Vali the clouds do not produce thunder ,
The strong wild animals like lion do not roar in their caves ,
And even the torrential wind feeling that the thin leaves ,
Would shake there , does not come near his place.”
3833.”On the day when he tied with his tail the very strong Ravana,
With his twenty shoulders tightly , there is no place that he did not go,
And there is no place that the blood from body of Ravana did not stain”
3834.”oh strong one , That matchless Vali who is the son of Indra ,
Is as white as the full moon which has sweetness and cold,
He is one who Orders , which should be obeyed even to God of death,
And he was the first born son of the mother of Sugreeva,”
3835.”When Vali who had such a greatness was our king,
And Sugreeva was our junior king and ruling over us ,
One Rakshasa called Mayavi who had clan enmity with them,
Became angry and waged a war against Val.”
3836.”That Rakshasa who fought with Vali , fearing to fight ,
Against the great strength of Vali ,started shivering and ran away with fear,
And he knowing that it is difficult for him to live on this earth,
Entered a cave which no one can ever enter.”
3837. “When that Mayavi entered that cave Vali was greatly enraged ,
And looking at Sugreeva he told, “Oh strong one , I would enter in this cave ,
And return after catching him and you please guard this entrance ,
So that he cannot escape from here “ and entered the cave speedily.”
3838.” After Vali went inside for the next fourteen seasons searched,
For that Asura in that cruel cave with the aim of desirable victory ,
Against that cruel Asura and when he was engaged like this,
The younger brother Sugreeva became sad and greatly upset.”
3839. “When he was returning wailing from there , we saluted him,
With great love and told him , “oh victorious one ,
It is your duty as the junior king to rule over us and so,
Please accept the kingship” and that Sugreeva who was sorrowing ,
Said that doing so would be a great crime.”
3840.”Then he said that he would also go inside the cave and follow the path of Vali,
And search for his elder brother and if he is already dead , he would fight ,
With that Mayavi and kill him and if he is not able to , he would die and started entering the cave.”
3841. “Then the wise ministers who had mastery over speech prevented him,
From entering the cave , consoled him , cured his illness of sorrow .
And as per the just method of earlier elders and as per the wishes of other monkeys,
Gave the kingship to him but he did not willingly accept it.”
3842, “On that day when Sugreeva accepted that kingship , we fearing that,
The Rakshasa would come out of that cave , brought all the mountains except Meru,
And stacked them at the entrance of that cave and completely closed it .”
3843.”When we had completely closed the door of the cave by securing it ,
With mountains , we brought Sugreeva the son of Sun god with red hot rays,
And when we were living on Kishkinda mountains, That Vali killed that Mayavi.”
3844”.After eating the toddy of the soul of Mayavi in that cave ,
Vali was extremely happy speedily reached the entrance of the cave ,
And from there he called Sugreeva and since he did not get any reply ,
Said, “The way my younger brother is guarding the cave is great.””
3845.”When Vali speedily lifted his tail and rose like huge wind towards the sky,
Waved his legs and kicked ,, all the mountains which had closed the cave ,
Rose up to the top of the blue sky and some of them fell in the ocean.”
3846.” Vali got out of the cave and making every one scared,
Screeching with great anger reached the top of the mountain,
And Sugreeva the son of Sun God who did not have any differences ,
And who walked in the path of truth came forward and saluted the feet of his brother.”
3847.”After saluting he told “Oh brother , due to your not coming out ,
Oou of the cave for a long time When I wanted to follow you ,
The ministers did not agree with me and said,
“To rule over the monkey kingdom is your duty.”
3848.”Oh brother whose shoulders have waving ornaments ,
Being scared of disobeying the order of all the monkeys ,
I accepted the kingship and so please pardon my crime ,”
When Sugreeva requested like this Vali with ,
His mind completely changed told several very harsh words.”
3849.”Greatly scared of Vali who had won over his enemies by his strength,
With stomach churning , with our entire clan of monkeys were standing getting scared,
He who once churned the milky ocean , with the same hands
Attacked the body of Sugreeva and Sugreeva became greatly sad.”
3850.”When Vali caught hold of Sugreeva and without bothering for bad name,
Using his very strong hands and with greatly ebbing anger ,
When He lifted Sugreeva up with an dashing him ,
Seeing for an opportune moment when Vali got tired,
Sugreeva ran away from that place to save himself.”
3851.”Oh Lord , if that Vali gnashes his teeth and gets greatly angry ,
Even the God of death does not have a safe place to live ,
But remembering the curse given to him by sage Mathanga ,
Sugreeva came here and started living here safely .”
3852.”Oh our God , that Vali also made his own the wife of Sugreeva,
Whose name is Ruma , who is like the very difficult to get nectar ,
And Sugreeva sacrificing his kingly wealth as well as Ruma ,
Lived on this mountain and these are what , that happened here .” said Hanuman.
3853.When that Hanuman who did not how to lie , told in the proper way ,
About Sugreeva , that Lord Rama who has one thousand names,
And is the greatest among Devas , Rama’s lips of his mouth which ,
Swallowed the world at the time of deluge started trembling,
And his lotus like red eyes became red like the lily flowers.
3854. That Rama who had thick shoulders wearing pearl necklaces ,
And who gave away the kingship that was his based on the ,
Words of his step mother , whose love had vanished as soon as,
He heard that ”One who did not have any love usurped ,
The wife of his younger brother “ , will he have patience?
3855. “Even if all the beings who live in the fourteen different worlds .
Come together to save the soul of Vali and desire to stop me,
With an arrow in my bow , I would recover the kingship of monkeys ,
And your wife and give them to you . Oh wise one ,
Please show me the place where he lives.”Said Rama to Sugreeva,
3856.As son as Rama told these words the oceans with very great joy ,
Along with huge waves roared and Sugreeva who was like the one who had ,
Found the other shore of the sea of sorrow in which he was immersed,
Thinking that “Now the strength of Vali would fall “but said to Rama,
“There is some important thing that we have to think about.”
3857.That son of Sun God after telling there like this started consulting ,
All his ministers including that of Hanuman who were experts ,
In justice and generating ideas , in another place ,
And at that time Hanuman the son of wind god told.
3858. “Oh strong one , I could guess what is in your mind and I think,
You are doubting that these two valorous ones do not have the matchless strength ,
That is needed to kill that Vali who has very great strength , and now,
Please hear what I have to say and with faith follow them.”
3859”. On the hands and feet of Rama there are markss of wheel and conch,
And this great sign has not been seen on any body else in this world ,
And He with his red eyes and hands holding the bow is Lord Vishnu himself,
And he has taken incarnation in this world to establish Dharma.”
3860. “ That big golden and matchless bow of the great Lord Shiva , who had the power
To make any one suffer , who got so angry that he burnt the three cites,
And who by the kick of his feet killed the very angry God of death,
Was broken by him and is it easy for any one but Lord Vishnu?”
3861.”Oh Lord , The God wind who is my father seeing me had told ,
“You be a slave to the one who produced Lord Brahma who created,
All these worlds and that would be sufficient penance for you to do,
And that would also bring great position to me who begot you ,”
And this Rama is that Lord Vishnu and there is another reason for that also.”
3862.”Oh Lord , once I asked my father “How do I recognize that Lord Vishnu?’
And he said, “He would be born at a time when all people are miserable,
And the proof of him is that as soon as you see him you would fall in love with him.”
And as per that , as soon as I saw this lord my bones start melting, Is there a need for more proof?”
3863,”Oh great Sugreeva and in spite of that , if you want to know ,
The great strength of Rama , there is a method for that and that is,
Testing whether that tall Rama can send an arrow with fire sparks ,
Through one of the seven Maramara trees that we encounter on our way “ he said.
3864.When he heard that Sugreeva with joy told “well, well”,and then he hugged ,
Hanuman who was his matchless help and embraced both his,
Shoulders , which would even make the big mountains ashamed ,
And then went and met Rama and told him “I have some thing,
Top tell you” and Rama told him , please tell that.
The chapter on Maramara trees.
When requested by Sugreeva to show his prowess by putting an arrow through one of the Mara mara trees, Rama by his arrow pierces all the seven trees. The doubts in the mind of Sugreeva disappears
In Valmiki Ramayana as pre request of Sugreeva Rama throws the skeleton of Dhundhubhi to a distance of ten Yojanas, Sugreeva then wants hi m to pierce one of the seven Sala and trees then.)
3865.Sugreeva sweetly lead them saying “This is the path we have to go,
And showing them the seven Maramara trees which by their height,
Would make the sky shorter and told him , “If your arrow goes ,
And pierces one of these trees , the apprehension in my mind would go”.
3866.When Sugreeva who did not have any fault in his mind told like this,
Rama the lord of all devas , understanding the thought of Sugreeva,
Smiled and took with his very powerful hands the bow , stringed it,
And went near those trees which cannot be understood by wisdom.
3867.Those Maramara trees , even if eons change, do not change themselves ,
And even at the time when the entire world is destroyed, they would not fall down,
And were looking like the seven mountains which lift the earth surrounded by seas,
Have come there together and were standing in a group.
3868.Those great seven Maramaras made the full moon and the Sun,
To start doing great penance to cross its top ,
And the Lord Brahma seeing these trees would say I have seen mountains,
As due to their head , He was not able to see its leaves
3869. Due to going under the shade of those great trees, which have spread,
On the sky and all the directions , the horses of Sun God never felt tired,
And were not sad that they were running in the same way throughout the day ,
And in spite of thinking we were not able to find a better reason.
3870.Those seven trees and the stars which have existed for a long time,
AS well as planets which were high up in the sky appeared on its sides ,
And looked shining more like the flowers of these trees and the white moon,
Which had great luster had the black area inside it possibly because of rubbing with these trees.
3871.Due to the branches of those trees which never die growing luxuriantly,
They were suitable to be called as Vedas and since they were high up in the sky ,
And the swan on which Lord Brahma who created the universes ride,
Which were in his land along with the matchless female swan,
Preferred to live on one side of those trees due to their height.
3872. Due to the fact that even if the wind blows , its scented flowers,
Its leaves and its fruits and many others produced by those trees,
Did not fall any where on the earth but fell in the river Akasa Ganga ,
Of the tumultuous big heavens and reach the ocean with big tides .
3873.The trees having grown above the top of the head of Lord Vishnu,
In his form when he measured the entire world in two steps Could be ,
Called as the tall Lord Vishnu and they were more in girth than,
The huge Meru mountain which is standing in the middle of the earth.
3874.Like the mind of full of enmity between the son of Charitable Indra,
And his younger brother , each of those trees were more hard than,
Any other tree within themselves and their deep roots went inside ,
The white hood of Adhi Sesha who was lifting the earth in the middle of clear ocean .
3875.Those trees had grown up and measured all directions ,
And they were standing with damage over the passage of time ,
They were being praised by devas , and taller and stouter than
The Meru mountain which is gone round by the sun and moon ,
And each of them was equal to the other and ,
There was several Yojana (8 miles) distance between them.
3876. That faultless Rama after looking at all those Maramara trees ,
Got a desire to send his pure long arrow twanged the string of his bow,
Making all the beings in the far off sky and directions deaf ,
And creating a fear that they have never felt among the Devas.
3877 When we know that the sound of that twang from that string spread exactly ,
in a similar way , how can we describe the problems faced by those who are near?
in a similar way , how can we describe the problems faced by those who are near?
All the elephants of the eight directions swooned , all directions were confused ,
And that sound of placing the arrow on the thing even startled the land of Brahma.
3878.Due the extreme sound raised by the string of the bow of That Rama ,
Who destroys sin , the devas doubting that the end of the world has come,
Moved away from the places of their normal stay and only the brother ,
Who loved him stood near Rama and if we start telling,
About the state of others like Sugreeva and Hanuman , they would get bad name.
3879. When Hanuman who is truthful and others thinking that they want ,
To see the sending of the arrow went near and joined Rama and when they were,
All praising his mastery in archery , Rama the great archer who made all beings as his slave,
Pulled the strong string of his bow properly, and sent the arrow from his bow.
3880. That arrow pierced all the seven Maramara trees and went further into ,
The seven underworlds and since there was no “seven” afterwards returned,
And even then it would pierce any thing which are having numer “seven”.
3881. The seven seas, the seven upper worlds , the seven mountains , seven sages,
The seven horses that draw Sun God , the seven maids thinking that this arrow,
Would aim everything that is seven shivered with great scare.
3882.Though they were all scared , since they knew that Rama is a soul like friend ,
Of Dharma they all got rid of their fear and at that time Sugreeva took
The divine feet of Rama wearing heroic anklets and resembling
The just opened lotus flower on his head and started telling the following.
3883.”You are the earth, you are the sky , You are the other five great elements ,
You are the Lord Brahma on lotus flower , you are Lord Vishnu holding the wheel,
You are Lord Shiva resembling the red fire , you had created this world earlier,
And you have come in search of me who is like a dog to provide help to me.
3884. “Oh king of kings , the good karma that I did in my last birth has helped me.
By bringing you here and now on everything is easy for me and nothing is difficult,
I would be the slave to your devotees who are like mothers “ said the faultless Sugreeva.
3885. All other monkeys who were suffering for a long time due to Vali said,
“We were searching for the God of death to Vali and now we have got him “
And they all drank sweet toddy , forgot themselves and with joyful shoulders,
Danced and sang and ran here and there with great joy.
Chapter on Dhundhubhi.
(Dhundhbhi wanted to fight Wa with Lord Vishnu who sends him to Lord Shiva , Who in turn sends him to Indra , who sends him to Vali. Vali kills him and throws the body from him heaven,. When it makes the hermitage of sage Mathanga dirty he curses Vali not to enter Rishy Muka mountain again. Lakshmand throws that skeleton to a ten Yojana distance .
In Valmiki Ramayana Dhundhubhi wants to fight war, with oceans , Himalayas , who sends him to fight with Vali .It is Lakshmana who demonstrates his strength by throwing the skull and not Rama,)
3886. Rama saw then the ocean like skeleton of Dhundhubhi , whose blood has dried ,
And was like the universes and the worlds which have got burnt in ancient times,
And which was almost touching the sky , on the Rishya Mooka mountain, like another mountain.
3887.He wondered , “Is it the skeleton of the buffallo of Yama the lord of the southern direction?
Or is it the skeleton of one of those strong stone like elephants carrying the earth?
Or is it the Makara fish which has dried?”and asked “You whose love has not diminished , please tell.”
3888Sugreeva told .”He who had grown tall as if to touch the moon , who has horns growing up,
Who has the form like the Mandara mountain , whose name is Dundhubhi,
And who was Rakshasa with great anger , breaking the ocean , went in search of Lord Vishnu.”
3889. “At that place when Lord Vishnu came before him and asked him,
“What is the reason for your coming?’ Dhundhubhi told him “please fight with me,
In the great war caused by anger” and he told, “Only the consort Of Ganga ,
The Lord Shiva who has a black neck due to swallowing of poison,
Would be able to fight with you who have great strength and anger ,.”
3890.That Asura reached the Kailasa of Lord Shiva with great speed ,
And when he was trying uproot the mountain by his horns , Lord Shiva ,
Came before him and asked “What do you want?” and he said ,
“Try to give me an endless , cruel and horrible war.”
3891.”Is it possible for me to fight with you , who has been involved ,
War from the very beginning? And so you please go and fight with devas”
Said lord Shiva and sent him away and when he went and challenged ,
The Devas for war , Indra told him, “If you want to fight for a long time,
You do not come here but approach Vali who is an expert in warfare.”
3892-3893.”Sent by Devendra , that Dundhibi came with joy to Kishkinda and called,
“Oh king of monkeys , come and fight with me” and started destroying,
That mountain in various ways, my elder brother came before him ,
And when they were fighting that war , both of them turned left to right ,
And right to left and no body was able to make who was who among them,
And those fearless ones who scared the entire world fell down ,
Get up again and became unapproachable to devas as well as asuras.”
3894.” When they changed their steps fire rose up and touched the sky ,
The great sound of war cry that they made was head in all directions for a long distance,
The smoke of that fire also spread everywhere and the water in the good sea,
As well as the mountain series lost their great prettiness.”
3895.”When such a great war was going on , the victorious Vali ,
With the great strength of his shoulders uprooted the two horns.
Of that asura which very stout and were spreading to end of directions,
And hit that Asura with them and That Asura stood there ,
Making very huge sound which resembled the thunder,.”
3896.”At that time Vali punched that Asura so that the hit fell on his head,
And he fell down breaking al his four legs with blood flowing like river,
From his open mouth and that punch was like thunder falling on the mountain,
And both the earth and heaven shivered and all directions trembled.”
3897.”At that time Vali lifted that Asura and when he was rotating him like a fan,
And walking here are there , whenever the blood oozed out of Dhundhbhi .
It went fell on those elephants of directions with closely held tusks ,
And those big elephants due to that blood became red in colour.”
3898”.That Vali crossed the area of clouds , crossed the place of Sun God,
Crossed the lands where other devas were living and with his ,
Strong hands threw that Dundhubhi to places above that place ,
And then the soul of Dhundhubhi went to upper places and his body fell here.”
3899.”This evil smelling dead body went and hit the top of the sky ,
And when it fell on this place , the very merciful sage Mathanga ,
Cursed him which curse is now useful to me and then ,
He related in detail everything that happened there.”
3900. That pure one , after hearing the complete story, looked at Lakshmana,
Who was an expert in warfare with sword and said, “Son , remove this”,
And that Lakshmana nudged that skeleton with the fingers of his feet,
And that skeleton went up to the land of Brahma and returned back.
6.Kalan Kaan Padalam
Chapter of seeing Sita’s ornaments.
(Sugreeva shows the ornaments thrown out by Sita and Rama recognizes them and becomes sad. Sugreeva consoles him by telling that they would fight with Vali after they find Sita. Rama gets consoled. Hanuman tells that unless Vali is killed and Sugreeva becomes the king they cannot collect necessary army to search for Sita , Rama agrees with this and proceed to the place of Vali.
This portion is mentioned as happening earlier than the throwing of skeleton of Dhundhbhi in Valmiki Ramayana.)
3901. At that time the crowd of monkeys shouted opening their mouth,
Making even the thunder greatly scared and at that time ,
When Rama was staying in that pretty garden , Sugreeva told Rama,
“Oh Lord , I have to inform you about one thing.”
3902. “Some days ago , when we had assembled at this place ,
That cruel Ravana brought some one this way , and may be she was your lady?
He was going far above in the sky and she seeing this forest path cried out of sorrow.”
3903.Possibly she wanted us to convey something like an emissary,
But we did not understand her who had long eyes which were,
fighting with her ear ornaments and in spite of that she made her ornaments ,
In to a packet and with eyes raining tears , she put that packet down and we received it.
3904. That Sugreeva who had sweet friendship which was like the mixture,
Of honey and milk said, “Oh charitable one , we have kept that packet safely ,
And you would know the truth when we give it to you “ and then he handed over that packet.
3905. Rama carefully looked at those Ornaments which were worn earlier by Sita,
And we are not able to say that” his body became like the wax put inside the fire ,”
Neither we can see “that he drank them Considering those ornaments as the nectar to his soul “
And how can we adequately describe the state which Rama attained at that time ?
3906,”Those necklaces that she wore around her breasts ,
Appeared to Rama as her breasts and the belt ,
Which she used to tie on her hip became her hips ,
And similar was the case of ornaments worn on different body parts.”
3907.Shall I tell that those ornaments summoned back the wisdom which had gone out of Rama,
Shall I tell that it killed his soul Shall I tell that it was cool like the poured sandal paste?
Shall I tell that increased the sorry of parting and burnt him? What should I tell.
3908. Those ornaments worn by Sita who spoke sweetly like the Naganavai birds ,
When smelled resembled the scent of fresh flowers and ,
When they were placed on the shoulders , they were like the upper cloth .,
Due to their luster falling on Rama they were like the sandal paste ,
And since they covered his body by luster , they were like a pretty shawl.
3909. The flow of water due to the tears shed from both the red eyes of Rama ,
Pulled everything and took them away ., the hair stood erect all over the body,
His shoulders increased in size and should I say that they gave out sweat,
Should I say that he faded due to heat of parting “What shall I say of that pure Rama.
3910.When that Rama who had big eyes , due the heat which spread ,
Like poison on his entire body , for a long time was not able to breath properly,
And with breath and wisdom going away from him fell down and
Sugreeva held him by his hands making his pin like hairs hurting him.
3911.Sugreeva supported Rama and not able to tolerate ,
The great sorrow of Rama , with a greatly sorrowing mind looking at Rama told,
“Oh Rama with stout shoulders , “I who had bad fate , by giving these ,
Ornaments to you have taken away your soul “ and then he sobbed and cried.
3912. “Oh expert in Vedas , by searching carefully for her even in universes,
Beyond Brahmanda , I would show you my strength and rejoin with you ,
Your consort who has very great fame and so do not lose heart and get tired.”
3913.”Why bother about the twenty shoulders and ten heads of the cruel Ravana ,
Who has done bad and created scare in the Sita who is like Goddess Lakshmi ,
Who posses divine chastity . Will the seven worlds together ,
Be able to bear the power of just one of your arrows?”
3914.”You please be here , I would go and search by my strength ,
All the fourteen worlds for the lady Sita ,cut the heads of that Rakshasa,
And bring the lady Sita here,. Please see the efficiency of my work.”
3915.”Oh best among men , we are all your friends , who would obey you ,
And do all your work and this Lakshmana is very strong and has,
Great strength using which he can destroy and you are such that ,
All the three worlds dare not disobey your orders.”
3916. ‘Though they are deservingly great , they would not talk about their greatness ,
And they would show it by their work and what else needs to be done?
Is there a Dharma which is separate from you ?Is there anything impossible for you?
Without thinking all this would you get only immersed in sorrow?”
3917,”Oh Lord who talks only words beyond any doubt , Lord Brahma ,
Lord Shiva who has on one side Parvathi who has a soft nature and ,
Gave us Lord Subramanya and Lord Vishnu who has the wheel on his big hands ,
Together may be equal to you but individually they cannot be equal to you.”
3918.”Oh lord who holds a pretty bow , You need not fulfill my small requirement now
And you can do it later and we would now go speedily and ,
Get freed Sita with waist like lightning who is being tortured by Ravana , immediately.,”
3919.When the son of the Sun god who has hot rays told like this,
Rama who had the chest on which Goddess Lakshmi lives, became clear,
Got back his perception and opening his eyes leaving out tears like a stream,
Saw Sugreeva with great love and told him as follows.
3920.”Oh Sugreeva who has mountain like shoulders, That sita removed her ornaments,
When I of very bad fate still had this very strong bow on my hands,
Among the chaste ladies who wear golden ornaments , there are none who have done like this.”
(Married ladies do not remove all ornaments when husband is alive.)
3921.”When that Sita with knife like long eyes is expecting me ,
To save her soon , I am spending my time amidst high mountains,
Which have valleys , ponds and with the ornaments that she has removed,
And spending my time only by wailing and crying and
Carrying the huge bow with its string and I am indeed a shameless one.”
3922.”When a person takes along with him any lady with a sweet talk ,
If Some one else comes and troubles her , he should stop it,
And in the ferocious battle that ensues , to prevent dangers for her,
He should even give away his soul and when that is the rule of the world,
I am not having the power to remove the sorrow of Sita, who depends only on me.”
3923.” The kings of my clan having several qualities of greatness ,
Dug huge oceans , brought ganges from heaven to earth,
Made the warring tigers drink water along with the deer in the same ghat,
But I who have followed such great kings , am not having the ability,
To remove the sorrow of a lady who has removed her ornaments.”
3924.”My father removed the sorrow of Indra and destroyed an Asura,
Called Sambara to oppose whom even God of death would find it difficult,
But I who am born out of him , am only carrying a bad name ,
That gives very great sorrow and a bow.”
3925”.If the truth of my father who has beauty that ever one desires , fails,
Knowing that I would get a bad name out of it , I did not crown myself ,
And now I have got the bad name of Ravana taking away Sita who has a voice,
Which is sweeter than sugarcane and how can I get out of it?”
3926. Seeing Rama who was sorrowing and was worrying telling such words ,
Due to the rare sadness , Sugreeva, the son of Sun God who had rays ,
Which are beyond thought , Took Rama to the shore from such an ocean of sorrow.
3927, “oh friend Only because you consoled me , I have somehow reduced my sorrow,
If not would I still be alive?Is there anything better for me than death?
To get rid of this bad name in this world I would definitely die,
But I would not do it unless I solve your problem .
3928, When Rama told like this , the very strong Hanuman saluted Rama,
And said , “Oh Lord having shoulders like big mountain , I have ,
Something to tell you, Please hear that carefully.”
3929.”Oh Lord who rules , Unless you kill Vali with vary cruel habits,
Make Sugreeva the son of Sun God with hot rays as the king,
And manage to collect a very huge army , it would not be,
Possble to find out the place of residence of Ravana,
Who has an army which is capable of destruction.”
3930.”Oh lord who wears a flower garland frequented by bees,
Since we are human beings with flesh , it would not be possible for us ,
To know Whether Ravana is in heaven ? whether he is in earth?
Or Whether he is in between mountains or in the place of serpents ?”
3931.”These Rakshasas can reach all the worlds by the time we blink the eye,
And in all places where they reach , they would steal everything that they want,
They would come like bad fate and like that fate troubling us and vanishing,
They would also go back. How can we find out where these Asuras reside?”
3932.”This world is spread limitlessly and searching Rakshasas ,
In one place after another there are problems as to do such a search.
Several years are needed and so at one particular point of time .
WE should spread all over and search for the place where Sita is.
3933.” Our monkey army of seventy vellums , like the sea at deluge ,
Is capable of spreading throughout the world and if there is a need,
To drink the entire water of the sea or if there is a need,
To separate out the Brahmanda by putting hands below it ,
It would obey the order and successfully do it.”
3934. “And so , Oh Lord who observes justice , you have to first kill Vali ,
And then using the mokey army search for Sita and that is the proper method,”
Hanuman said,” this is what I think.” And the expert in archery Rama ,
Said “Your idea is one which can be accepted, and so let us go ,
To the place of Vali “ after this all people went to Vali’s place.
