7.Vali Vadhai Padalam
Chapter of killing of Vali
(Rama and others reach Vali ‘s palace. Rama requests Sugreeva to challenge Vali for battle and assures him that he would shoot an arrow at Vali from hiding. When Sugreeva shouts the battle cry,
Tara warns Vali that , Rama has assured to help Sugreeva. Vali who knew the fame of Rama assures Tara, that Rama who is wedded to Dharma would not do that . Sugreeva fights with Vali but is about to be defeated. He runs back to Rama , who tells him that he did not send the arrow as they were similar looking . He ties forest flower garland on Sugreeva who goes again to fight with Vali. When Vali lifts Sugreeva with both hands, Rama shoots the arrow and Vali falls down. With great difficulty.
He pulls out the arrow and finds out that it is shot my Rama. When Rama comes near him, Vali accuses Rama of doing unjust action. Rama that Vali not only drove out Sugreeva but also possessed his wife. Vali replies that they are not bound by the rules of men. Rama then tells Vali that he is not a beast but a very knowledgeable person. Vali understands and gets resigned to his fate , He entrusts Sugreeva and Angadha to care of Rama , Tara comes there and wails .Angadha does the after-death rituals of Vali . Rama grants salvation to Vali.
While Sugrreva and Rama comes to the palace of Valley , in Valmiki Ramayana they see the hermitage of seven sages and salute it. This is not mentioned in Kamba Ramayanam . The justification for killing Vali for Rama is slightly different in Valmiki Ramayana. Rama says Vali is living in the kingdom of Bharata and he as representative of Bharata has every right to punish him and also since Vali is a beast , he can be killed from hiding. When Tara comes to see the dead Vali , the monkeys of Kishkinda try to stop her and say they would continue the fight under Angadha in Valmiki Ramayana In that Ramayana Tara wants to die along with Vali. Hanuman dissuades her , The cremation of Vali is dealt in great detail with Brahminical custom in Valmiki Ramayana unlike here where it is dealt very briefly.)
3935.Sugreeva and others who were like male Yalis with cruel fearsome eyes ,
The strong tiger , the fast moving elephant along with two young lions .
Went along the path with densely growing , stable Aachaa trees , Moola trees , AAthi trees,
THamala trees , cardamom and the Surapunnai trees , which had flowers like Garlands .
3936.That path had swings in which deer like ladies were swinging ,
And wherever there were no swings , there were sandalwood trees whose leaves were waving,
There were mountain valleys and if they are not there were the front of the mountains,
Over which clouds were moving and in that places where there were ,
Highly scented CHampaka gardens with leaves waving ,
And in those places where there was no garden there were golden hills.
3937.When Rama and Lakshmana who were the cause for starting of Dharma,
Along with the monkey crowds were climbing or getting down ,
From mountain slopes , due to sound of their heroic anklets which by nature ,
Produce huge sound , the clouds which were sleeping on mountains with closed eyes,
Woke up well and started travelling up in the sky.
3938. With clouds running by the way of long mountains , with water flowing from those clouds ,
The serpents dancing with open hood , deers along with elephants running ,
the lions also went along with them. In those mountain slopes nearby ,
Where Karapunnai trees grow and in the streams, Valai fishes were running ,
And the water snakes by nature get scared ran away ,
And along with them black monkeys and tigers also ran.
3939. Due to the elephant in rut which had not properly woken up ,
Hitting with great rage , very hard black Akil trees and the sandal trees ,
They broke and fell and when they rolled and came down ,
Making the honey that flowed from the damaged hives
Made wet the scary mountain paths and greatly slippery and they walked ,
With great nervousness through those paths.
3940.Those mountains which were climbed by valorous ones who were carrying the bow
Was full of heaps of lustrous gems which spread light like fire spreading light,
And the golden light spread everywhere as if it was pouring water to put out that fire.
3941. In all those playful ponds which were by the side of those mountains ,
The Ganges of heaven would flow, the bull would rush in to the thinai ,
Fields where the awns had been harvested , the mountain streams would flow, in to it ,
And from those flat lands of the mountain the elephants would rush in ,
The sparrow would jump on those Thinai awns and monkeys would jump on tree branches.
3942 That mountain had the attractive perfume of cardamom which attracts the devas ,
And due to flow of water , the mountain slopes which are slippery due to the flow of honey
Would pull down the stars , otherwise it would pull the rain bow appearing on the sky,
Or it would pull the white crescent of the moon or it would pull the planets on the sky.
3943.Rama and other valorous ones who went up the mountain through ,
The mountain path climbed ten yojanas distance on that mountain,
And reached the place which was like the golden place of Devas which had come down,
Where Vali lived and started talking to each other, “ What they should all do?”
3944.Then that Rama looking at Sugreeva told “You challenge Vali for a battle ,
And when that Vali with matchless cruel poison is fighting with you,
I would stand in some other place and have made up my mind ,
To shoot the arrow at him for only this would suit this circumstance “,
And Sugreeva who wanted to destroy the enemy and gain victory ,
Thought about it and told “This plan would give good result.”
3945. After hearing the words of Rama , the son of, Sun who without break travels in the sky ,
Made the water filled ocean with tides scared , made the blue clouds in the sky ashamed,
Made the people on earth sweat and run away , Made the devas of heaven confused,
Made a loud war cry which spread all over the universe swallowed by Lord Vishnu
3946.”If you come to war with me , I would kill you “ he said in a commanding voice,
Stamping the earth producing great noise , folding his mouth in great anger ,
Patting his shoulders which were shining , and that sound of war cry ,
Was heard in Kishkinda city and entered the ears of ,
Sleeping Vali whose left eye twitched .” they say
3947.That Vali who was lying down on a bed which was like the ocean of milk ,
Like a cruel lion hearing the trumpeting of a huge elephant in rut,
Heard the roaring loud war cry of that Sugreeva.,
3948. That Vali who had mountain like shoulders , thinking about his younger brother,
Who had come to fight war with him laughed and the sound of the laughter,
Crossed all the fourteen worlds and made beings beyond directions scared and run away.
3949.He who had pride like the ocean with huge tides rising up at final deluge ,
He speedily got up and due to that speed , the Kishkinda mountain went down,
And by the wind generated by movement of his shoulders, nearby huge mountains fell down.
3950.Due to his anger the sparks of fire appeared in the root of every hair and got scattered,
And his eyes which rose up due to anger sprayed out fire which would make ,
The eyes of Badavagni loose its sight if it sees it and his hot breath,
Generated great smoke which spread in heavens where the Devas live.
3951.When Vali hit one of his palms with the other in extreme anger ,
All the eight elephants which support the earth lost their rut and pride ,
The collection of thunder lost their power and fell down ,
The land of devas became bad and the displaced mountains broke.
3952.The words, “I have already come, I have already come “that were said by Vali ,
Was heard from Indra’s east direction to all the eight directions,
And due to gem studded tip of his crown hitting the moon,
Many groups of stars were scattered and fell down.
3953, Due to the wind generated by his getting up , mountains were displaced,
And fell down after reaching the boundary of directions ,
The hot fire sparks that appeared in the roots of his white hairs,
Went and hid the fencing wall of the globe,
The eyes of god of death glittered and devas had a setback.
3954. The fire sparks that came out , when he bit his teeth and,
Were like the cluster of thunders produced when clouds dash against each other ,
And got scattered all over and when he patted his shoulders and yelled,
The gems on ornaments fell down like sparks of lightning.
3955. Vali then started making every body scared and was like the terrible fire at deluge,
Which destroys the heavens , the seas in the four directions , devas ,
And the principles which are the root of everything and was also like,
The Halahala poison that emerged from the ocean of milk.
3956.At that time Tara who had bamboo like shoulders,
Which had the properties of nectar , whose hair got burnt,
Due to the fire that came out of Vali’s mouth due to anger ,
Stood before him and tried to prevent him.
3957.Vali said, “Oh lady who is like the mountain peacock, do not stop me,
Leave me now, just like nectar was taken by churning the ocean ,
I would destroy the strength of Sugreeva , drink his pretty life ,
And return back quickly” and then Tara told.
3958.”oh king, That Sugreeva whose strength was destroyed by your famous strong shoulders ,
With great sorrow , has not gained any extra great strength and his coming to war with you,
And this shows that he has got a very great support.”
3959.Vali replied , “oh lady . even if all the limitless huge worlds,
Which have been divided in to three parts join together ,
And comes before me as my enemy , they all would be defeated,
And get destroyed. There are several proofs for this, please hear.”
3960.”The big mountain Mandhara became the churner , the serpent Vasuki,
Became the rope of limitless length , Lord Vishnu with wheel became a tortoise ,
And sat as regulating stone and the rope was pulled ,
From both the sides by devas like Indra and the Asuras.”
3961.”Oh Tara who has the look of peacock and the sweet voice of koel,
When those very weak asuras and devas pulled the Mandhara mountain,
They became worn up and tired and I churned the ocean like churning of the curd ,
And gave them the nectar which came up .Can this be forgotten.”
3962. “Those weak devas and asuras were all defeated , can any one tell their number?
Even the God of death when my name is uttered would start shivering ,
So who is that person who has come as help to support Sugreeva ,
Who has the power to face me in war, please tell me?”
3963. “Those innocent people who do not knowmy strength may possibly come to fight with me ,
But half the boons that they have received and half their strength would become mine.
And so how can they become my enemies and fight with me?
Please remove your sorrow now “ Said he consoling Tara.
3964.Hearing that she told, “oh king , some people who have great love,
Towards us have told a person called Rama has become a friend like life to Sugreeva,
And has come along with him, so that He can take away your soul.”
3965.”oh sinner By telling inappropriate things about Lord Rama ,
Who shows the path of Dharma to all those who are sorrowing in the world,
Who are summoning the God , not able to find methods,
To destroy the good and bad karmas , you have done a great mistake ,
And due to the ignorance of you being a female you told this.”
3966.” To Rama who thinks about the results of action here and in heaven,
Would it give fame to do as you told just now? By doing this,
What benefit will he get ?Will that just Dharma which stands ,
AS some thing not easily reachable and which protects ,
The beings on earth , try to destroy itself?”
3967.”When he who got the kingship of the entire world from his father as his right,
AS soon as he Was ordered by his step mother , he gave it to her son with great joy,
And instead of praising that great Rama , you have told such words finding fault with him.”
3968. “ Even if all the established worlds join together and fight with him,
Victory would be to his powerful bow and so where is the need ,
For any other assistance to him? Would Rama who is equal to only himself
Seek for friendship with a monkey which does only silly things?”
3969.” That sea of mercy Rama who thinks that except for his brothers,
He does not have a separate soul in this world ,
Is one who walks united with them and would he interfere,
In the war between me and my brother and send an arrow at me?”
3970”.You please stay here for some time , within the time of batting an eye ,
I would drink the soul of Sugreeva who has come with anger to me,
I would drink the soul of Sugreeva who has come with anger to me,
And destroy all those who have come with him so that their aim cannot succeed,
And come back again,, You please do not worry” and when he consoled ,
Tara like this, she who had scented hair was scared to talk against his ideas.
3971. That Vali with great speed desiring to fight , with his huge shoulders,
Which were taller than the border of the land of Devas ,
Like the sun who appeared on the top of the mountain of sun rise ,
Became visible on the top of that wealthy mountain.
3972.That Vali who due to the strength of his shoulders was similar to,
A huge and great mountain , similar to the great Lord Narasimha coming out ,
Of the pillar pointed out by the cruel Rakshasa , Making all those who seem,
Greatly scared came in between those mountains.
3973. Than Vali saw his younger brother who raised the war cry ,
And he also created huge shout which made the huge thunders ,
Fall from the sky sweating with fear and that great noise ,
Similar to the feet of the black Vishnu as Trivikrama ,
Which measured all the world , Covered all the worlds.
3974.At that time Rama told his loving brother Lakshmana , “oh brother,
Please see carefully. Who among the devas , asuras , oceans , clouds,
Winds, the cruel fire which are there in varying worlds ,
Would be equal in strength to the body of these Vali and Sugreeva.”
3975. The younger brother of the Lord while replying told,
“This Sugreeva for stealing the soul of his elder brother has brought,
The God of death here and has decided to engage in war ,
Which is hated by very many monkeys and when I think about it,
I am pushed in to sorrow and am not able to properly think.”
3976.Unable to calm down his mind Lakshmana further told,
“Oh great hero, it is not good to believe in those persons ,
Who go against Dharma and without clarity try to do bad acts,
How can this Sugreeva who has come here thinking that his elder brother,
Is his enemy with an intention of killing him , become a good help to us?”
3977.Then Rama said , “Oh brother , please hear this , Should you talk ,
About the proper behavior of these beasts who are slightly mad and ignorant ,
Similar to the behavior of human beings? If all the brothers who were born afterwards,
In the womb of any other mother start behaving similarly ,
Would it happen that , all people praise Bharata as very great.”
3978. “Oh Lakshmana who has pretty shoulders like the mountain holding a bow,
People who always follow correct behavior are only very few , for most of the people,
Do not care to follow good behavior and this is the truth and it is only proper,
To receive good things from those who gain our friendship because ,
Who in this world can be declared as one who does not have any fault.”
3979,When Rama and Lakshmana who were valorous and had expertise in war,
Were talking like this , Sugreeva the son of Sun God who roams round the sky ,
And Vali who was the son of Indra , who were both like the cool , white and big,
Mountains that roam the world , similar to the huge strong ,
Elephants of the different directions dashed against each other.
3980.They both fought like a mountain fighting against another.
They fought like male lions who each had the power to kill,
And also be victorious , were fighting with each other.
They neared to fight , for a lot of time circled each other from left ,
As well as right and because of that the heavens started rotating,
Like potter ‘s wheel which was spun by the potter with strong shoulders.
3981.Due to their shoulders rubbing against each other , the heaven,
Was not able to bear it and when they rubbed their legs against each other,
Created sparks of fire which with light , went on the sky like lightning.
And they fought each other closely like planets fighting with each other and became angry.
3982. That Vali and Sugreeva who were great in the strength of their shoulders,
Who were born to the same mother , who had started to fight for sake of a young lady,
Were like the old Asuras Sundha and Upasundha who became enemies ,
And fought with each other due to their Love to Thilothama who had lustrous eyes.
3983.There were fighting like two oceans fighting with each other ,
Like the Meru mountain splitting in to two , which fight with each other ,
Like the character of anger taking up two male forms and fighting with each other ,
And we who have not seen the fight cannot say any other comparison to this fight.
3984. Due to the fire that came of the angry eyes of the monkey lords,
The clouds started burning , Mountains started burning ,
The elephants of the direction became scared and started trembling,
The four types of lands lost their nature, The devas who had crowded the sky,
Vanished from there and went and hid themselves in safe places.
3985.They fought and roamed over several places making people wonder,
“Are they on the sky? Are they on the peaks of tall mountains ?
Are They at the end of different directions? Are they inside our eyes?”
And they bit and punched each other so that they got wounded and blood oozed out .
3986,The huge sound that both of them produced was five times the sound of,
The seven oceans joining together and lashing at the ten different directions,
Their punching on the very strong big shoulders and on their chest ,
With very great speed by their hands, resembled the thunders at deluge.
3987.Due to the strong Vali and Sugreeva leaping on each other ,
And biting each other with the sharp teeth in their mouth ,
The blood from that places were sprinkled on all directions,
And the very bright stars resembled planet mars and ,
The clouds on the sky resembled the red sky at dawn and dusk.
3988.Like the fire sparks coming out of the red hot iron rods ,
When beaten with big hammers , the shoulders of Indra’s son,
And that of the son of Sun God , due to being hit by huge hands broke .
3989.Both of them pushed each other by their chests,
They would kick by their legs , hit with their hands with great speed,
They would bite by their mouths , they would stand before each other and hit each other,
They would hit with trees and chide each other, they would uproot mountains ,
And throw on the other’s head, they would shout and stare at each other like fire.
3990. They would hold and lift each other , they would hold each other,
Tightly and throw them up and then they would show their chest to the enemy ,
And with clenched fist they will punch on the chest that is shown to them,
And turning swiftly to the right and the left with a great speed like a fan,
They would prevent others from coming forward, they would step back .
Stand together and hugging each other they would fall down.
3991.They would tie the chest of the other person with their tail,
They would pull them making their bones break . they would pull with their leg ,
The other person’s long legs , then they would untie themselves from that catch,
Like throwing the spear to pierce the body , with their very strong nails ,
They would pierce the leather jacket which the other person wears.
3992.Due to their uprooting mountains and trees on earth and all other things,
That they saw all around by their very strong hands and by throwing them ,
Those broken mountains and other things hid the sky ,
And they also fell in the oceans where the tides were turning .
3993. In the war that happened then , each of them were not able to defeat ,
The other but fought the war and seeing the other person is suffering ,
With the red fire of anger burning from each hair root , which was burning .
Like the burning of the grass in the forest they continued the war,
Seeing the fierceness of the war the devas got scared and got upset,
And what else can be told about the fierceness of the war?
3994. When the Vali and Sugreeva who were like that were fighting with each other,
Vali who had strong long , big and well formed shoulders and
Who had the strength needed to win over his enemy ,
Using his nails that can kill and his hands , like the lion destroying the elephant,
Made Sugreeva loose all his strength and made him fall .
3995.Like this when Vali fought with great ferocity , The son of Sun God became very sad ,
And approached Lord Rama with a sorrowful mind and when he was standing their bowing to him,,
Rama looked at Sugreeva and said, “Do not be sad as I was not able to differentiate ,
Between you two and so you wear this flower of the creeper and go” ,
And Like that Sugreeva wore that flower and went to fight with Vali again.
3996. Like the shining stars made in to garland and worn , Sugreeva ,
With the flowers of creeper decorating his hand went again
Shouting and making the strong tiger and the thunder of the clouds sad ,
Speedily came and beat and hit several times Vali,
Who had the strength to kill the enemy greatly sacred.
3997.Vali with a doubt in mind as to how Sugreeva who was defeated and ran away,
Has come again, looked at Sugreeva which would have made the God of death scared,
And laughed with great anger , with his strong hands as well as legs ,
Beat , kicked and punched the son of Sun God In places of great danger and made him faint.
3998. At that time the son of God with red rays breathed with difficulty and ,
Started vomiting his soul and from his ears and eyes along with fire blood came out,
And not able to do anything he looked at the place where Rama was there,
And the son of Indra was beating him again and again and making him suffer.
3999.Vali thinking that he would lift Sugreeva and dash him on earth ,
Put his hands below Sugreeva’s neck and waist and lifted him up ,
And then that Raghava took an arrow , kept it on the string of the bow,
And after making the bow suit his shoulders , sent it,.
4000. That arrow hit the chest of Vali who had the strength of four elements,
Water, the fire that made the water, the strong air that made that fire ,
And The earth which supports all these three , and pierced it like ,
The well matured Kadali Banana fruit which is of excellent taste ,
Being pierced by a needle and is there a need to tell about its speed?
4001. Vali whose strength of shoulders were lost , who could not show mercy on his brother,
Who was attempting to kill him by dashing him on strong earth and who was great in warfare,
Getting disturbed and fell down like Mount Meru which also falls by strong wind at deluge.
4002. That Vali who was lying on earth , like a mountain uprooted by thunder ,
And Who had great strength to destroy his enemies, loosened his arm,
Which was holding his brother but was holding strongly the arrow on his chest.
4003.That Vali got up hitting the top of the sky saying I will break this ,
Got angry saying “even before a black gram turns, I would go round,
All the directions and destroy everything” and also think “I would,
Uproot this entire earth itself” and start wondering “who hit ,
This arrow which has gone deeply in to my chest?”
4004.Also he would dash his hand on the earth , would saw all around,
With fire sparks flying from his eyes and try to remove the arrow ,
Which troubled him by holding it with his hands, leg and tail ,
And when he was not able to remove it became very sad,
And started rolling on the earth with his mountain like body .
4005. He would start suspecting whether the arrow was sent by Devas,
And then think “Would that devas do such an act?” And also say,
“Do they have the strength to fight with me ?” then he would laugh ,
With disbelief, “Had it been done by some body else? And conclude,
“This is an act of a person who is alone but equal to all the trinity of gods made in to one.”
4006.”Is this the divine wheel sent by Lord Vishnu? Is it the long trident ,
Of the God with black neck? Or is it the spear of Lord Subrahmanya ,
Which can pierce mountains? Or is it the Vajrayudha of Indra,
Which creates scare among enemies?” And concluding that ,
None of them had ability to pierce his chest, he was mentally confused.
4007.He would pull it by biting it with his teeth, He would with great noise,
Deepen the wound and pull it from his chest and when he was doing that,
He saw that arrow and understood that it would be very difficult to send ,
It using a bow and suspect whether it was sent by great sages using power of Manthras.
4008.Then Vali came to know that it is an arrow and thought ,”what is the point ,
In my worrying, What is the use? I would try to take out this matchless arrow,
Which has gone deep in to my chest using my two hands , tail and legs and ,
Understand the name of that great person “, and he made efforts to take it out.
4009. That male lion like Vali due to his rare and great strength and using his legs,
Took out that great arrow from his chest and seeing that the devas , asuras and others,
Felt great feeling in their shoulders for who in this world does not appreciate valour.
4010. The blood that oozed out of the chest of Vali crossed several forests and mountains,
And making sound like the ocean with its like the clear and tall tides,
It crossed several worlds ? Is it easy to say like this.
4011. Seeing the big stream like blood flowed from the mountain like chest.
Of Vali who was wearing scented flower garlands , Sugreeva ,
Who was tied due to the affection of sibling, from his fresh eyes ,
Shed tears of love and getting tired fell on the floor.
4012.That Vali who had ability to break Meru mountain and who was famous ,
Held with his thick and big hands that arrow which was removed from his chest,
Thought that he will break it but telling that is not simple so that it breaks,
Looked at the arrow deeply to know about the name written on that arrow.
4013.He then clearly saw in that arrow the name “Rama” which is the root chant ,
For all the three worlds, the world that would be given to the devotees,
Who completely depend on him, Which is the great matchless world,
Which is the drug that prevents the seven types of births in this birth.
4014.He thought “This hero who had left the dharma of the life of a family ,
For the sake of us monkeys has given up the Dharma of archery ,
And due to his birth the clan of Sun God which used to recite good Vedas,
Which used to never give up from time immemorial the life of Dharma .
Has now given it up” and then he laughed and also became ashamed.
4015.Vali felt ashamed, would bend slightly his head wearing a crown ,
Would laugh like burst of crackers and then again think of all that happened.
Then he would think “Is shooting an arrow like this is also a Dharma ?”
And then like a big cruel elephant in rut which was caught up in a deep pit ,
Where it can drown and was lying in the slushy mud ,
He sorrowed greatly , lost his strength and became tired.
4016.Before Vali who was berating Rama saying “if the one who is the head,
Makes a mistake , what now would happen to people of low ability?
And that too he lost his just behavior before my strength “
Rama who never erred from the path of Vedas and who wished to,
Follow and protect the rules of just behavior for the truthful kings ,
As written by Manu. appeared before Vali.
4017.Vali saw Rama who was looking like the blue monsoon cloud,
Which made several lotus flowers open , holding a big powerful bow,
And who was like Lord Vishnu coming from the land of devas ,
And Vali with his eyes shedding tears which was like blood coming out from wounds,
Saw Rama with great anger , with fire sparks coming out of his eyes, asked,
Oh Rama who has filled my thoughts , What type of action did you do?”
And continued his talk like one who wanted to point out faults of Rama.
4018.”Oh Rama , who loved others like a mother , who had the culture of friendliness ,
And who follows Dharma , Oh son of Dasaratha who protected the truth,
And respectability of his clan and who sacrificed his soul for that purpose,
You were born as the elder brother to Bharata and if you prevent others from doing bad acts,
And if you yourself continue to do that, would they turn out in to good acts?”
4019.”You were born in a great clan, The knowledge that you learnt was indeed great,
Your valour is indeed great, the good characters that came in search of you were great,
Is not the Lordship of all the three worlds yours too and if the world tells that,
Your great capacity to protect the world is this only,
And I feel that you who knows everything has forgotten everything and ,
Do things which go against all those things which have been told by me ?”
4020.”Oh Rama , who has great beauty which cannot be drawn in to a picture,
The Dharma of the king is practiced by all people of your clan,
And when it is like that , after parting with swan like lady born to Janaka,
Who was got by you like receiving of a nectar , you appeared ,
To have been confused /startled in that acts that you have attempted to do?”
4021, “If a person belonging to the clan of the Rakshasas has done you harm ,
Does the Dharma of Manu ask you to kill the king belonging to another clan?
Where have you lost the culture of mercy?, What deficiency did you find in me ?,
Oh Lord if you are going to carry this bad name , who are the people who can carry fame?”
4022.”Oh lord of mercy , has the bad Kali age come only to the monkey clan ,
Which jump and wander in this world surrounded by tumultuous ocean?
Is it that good nature and the greatness that can be got out of it ,
Should only be with people , who are weak and if strong people ,
Do hateful acts , would only fame come to them and not bad name?”
4023.”Oh Rama who does not need any help for winning over the enemy,
Oh victorious one , You did a matchless act by giving the kingship ,
Which was the wealth given to you your father , to your brother Bharata ,
And afterwards You also did an act which is unusual for you in the forest,
Is there any more better act that is remaining for you to do?”
4024.”The act done by valorous one who wear sound producing heroic anklets ,
And garland of victory is the war which brings out their masculinity”,
This is what is specially said , Oh Lord of the knowledge of books on dharma
Written from earliest times , if what you did to me is dharma ,
Oh Lord who does not get angry would you consider that,
The king of Lanka Ravana has done an act of injustice and get angry at him?”
4025 .”When two people are fighting with each other , both of them ,
Should be considered as your good relatives and when that is like that,
Doing act of grace to one of them and shooting the other with a sharp,
Cornered arrow at the other , Is this considered as Dharma?
Or is it against Dharma? That act can only be considered as unfit.”
4026.”Your act is not one that shows your valour and it is not ,
According to the truth and is not law, to the land that belongs,
To you my body is definitely not a burden, I am not your enemy,
When things are like that , Why did you who has lost
Your character of greatness do this act without any mercy?”
4027.”Looking at the acts of a person without any bias , standing in the middle ,
And doing acts of justice is the one which protects Dharma, is it not?
Instead of protecting ourselves from doing wrong acts , if we act
Taking care of the interests of only one person, Is it justice?”
4028. “For the sake of destroying your enemy Ravana who broke your security .
You joined with Sugreeva and that is like for the necessity of killing ,
A cloud like elephant becoming friends with a rabbit ,
Instead of taking the help of ferocious lion which can kill like me .”
4029. “Possibly thinking that the moon which travels in the sky has a black patch,
You who were born in the clan of the Sun God , have created a dark patch,
Which would be with you for very many years to come.”
4030.”A stranger to you came and challenged me for a war of his own accord,
And you hid yourself some where and shot an arrow at me , who came to fight with him,
And took away my life and after that you are standing like a male lion ,
Who has got more strength than all those who are standing here.”
4031”Oh valorous one who attains victory , You were not bothered about,
The rules mentioned in the books on Dharma , the nature of ,
The great ancestors of your clan and good behavior,
You have not destroyed Vali but destroyed the fence of the Dharma of the king.”
4032. “When some one steals your wife , making the valour of your heavy bow
Held in your hand to deteriorate and making valour defective ,
Does your becoming great by fighting with the bow consist,
Of sending an arrow at the chest of another one while you are hiding yourself?”
4033.Like this shouting by which he broke his teeth , with fire sparks ,
Coming out of his eyes , That angry Vali told the above words.
Rama who was standing before him heard them and started talking.
4034-4035..”once upon a time when you entered the cave
When you did not come out for a long time, Your brother ,
Wanted to help you by entering the cave , but as per the advice ,
Of the elders of your clan , Oh Vali who is having a moving gold necklace ,
Told him, “Please hear what we have to say carefully,
You yourself become our king” and as soon as they told like this,
Sugreeva told them “I would kill that Mayavi who has killed ,
My brother and also his relatives and later I would die myself ,
But I would not stay alive and rule this country,.
The advice that you gave me is faulty.”
4036.”Hearing that the very able chefs of his army , and the elders,
Who knew everything due to experience and other elders told,
“Whatever might have happened earlier, you take this kingship.”
And because of that this faultless Sugreeva happened to wear the crown.”
4037-4038. “When you came back after killing Mayavi , he became happy and saluted you,
And told, “oh father , this kingship was compulsorily given to me , by monkeys of our clan,
But this is your kingdom and your rule and not wanting to rule any further,
Told him everything that happened , but you became very angry,
With that Sugreeva though you realized that he was not guilty,
You tried to kill your younger brother and did not show any mercy on him,
And when he told , “please do not do any harm to me ,
I am surrendering to you , please do not find fault with me ,”
You did not accept all that he told but got angry with him.”
4039. “Though he is also full of strength , thinking ,
That fighting with you is not proper , he said,
“I am defeated” , saluted you with folded hands
And you thought “you would give him as food to God of death” ,
And so he got scared and crossed the boundaries of four directions.”
4040. “When he got scared and ran away , you did not show any mercy on him,
And you did not even consider that he is your younger brother ,
And because he reached the boundaries of the golden mountain ,
Where you cannot enter due to curse, you did not go there.”
4041”Making some thing as act of love or getting recognition ,
Of being born in a great clan or becoming great by,
Following of rules of life learned by us , all consist of,
Honouring and protecting the chastity of wife of another man.”
4042. “To those clear minded intelligent people ,
Thinking that they are all powerful and strong ,
And getting very angry at people who are weak ,
Is against the tenets of valour and behaving ,
Against the tenets of chastity, with secure ladies is against Dharma,.”
4043.”You have not thought about what is Dharma , its suitability and,
Its results in this and other world, for had you thought about that,
Would you have taken the wife of your rare younger brother,
As your own thus destroying your greatness.”
4044.” Because of that and because Sugreeva is my dear friend,
I killed you and even if some one is not known to us,
If he is a poor man who is being troubled ,
I am of the opinion that I should try to remove his sorrow.”
4045. When that pretty valorous Rama Told Vali ,
“This is how you have erred”, That Vali who has done something undesirable,
Said, “All these rules are not appropriate to us for,
To do according to how we feel is what is prescribed to us.,”
4046.”Oh Lord , The Lord Brahma who sits on the lotus flower with honey,
Has not prescribed the rules of making love like that of human beings to us,
Wherein the chaste faultless ladies make love after marriage ,
But he has created us in such a way , that we love when we feel like it .”
4047.”Oh Lord who holds the wheel which has fat of enemies and the applied Ghee,
We only follow the path of our mind and do not follow the Vedic procedure of marriage,
And also the good culture that is told by Vedas.”
4048”.Oh Lord who has the matchless victory of winning over me,
AS per the culture of our birth , I have not committed any fault,
Please understand that” and Rama started to give a suitable reply.
4049.”You were born like all devas who want to do good to all,
And since you are conversant with the faultless and stable path of Dharma
It is clear to me that You are not an ordinary animal ,
And so it is not proper for you , who have worn the garland of victory ,
To call yourself as a mere animal.”
4050.”The rules of Dharma are not about the body with five senses,
But about knowledge which is learnt by analyzing , its good and bad,
By those five senses and you who have great knowledge about ,
The rules of Dharma , after doing a mistake are trying to defend it as correct.”
4051.”Should the elephant which when dragged by a crocodile on one side ,
Called the Lord Vishnu with a conch and got matchless greatness ,
By its wisdom and attained salvation, be also called a beast?”
4052. “Due to his mind turning towards proper Dharma Jatayu who is our father ,
For the sake of wiping away sorrw of Sita wearing golden bangles and who was like Lakshmi ,
Engaged himself in a great war and attained salvation ,Is he not the king of hawks?”
4053. “ Is not the nature of the beast the absence of good knowledge ,
Which helps to differentiate the good from the bad and living like as one pleases?
The words that you spoke just now clearly bring out that ,
That there is no rule of Dharma that you have not understood.”
4054.”If people are those who do not think according to books on justice
And judge that , “This is acceptable “ and “this is not acceptable “,
They who are men by birth and form are indeed beasts only,
And if a beast follows the rules of Manu Dharma , it is equal to devas.”
4055. “ Due to the great devotion That you had to Lord Shiva
Who is armed with an axe and killed the God of death by destroying his power
You got from him the power of the four elements of Lord Vishnu.”
4056. “Though by their nature they commit only crimes ,
Though by birth they belong to the depressed classes,
There are people among them who have become those who follow Dharma.
And among the faultless sages who do penance and devas ,
Who are great in several respects , there are people who do crime.”
4057. “When truth is like that , the greatness and bad fame ,
For people born in any clan, comes to them by their acts ,
And though you know about it , you spoiled the greatness,
Of a lady who was wife of some body else “ said ,
Rama who never made mistakes in the rules laid by Manu.”
4058. Vali who heard the words of Rama carefully and understood them,
Who was the chief of monkey clan looked at Rama and told ,
“Oh lord who has great and good characters, Let whatever ,
You have said till now be the truth but tell me why ,
You did not stand before me and send an arrow at me ,
And instead like cruel hunters hiding and attacking beasts,
Send an arrow at me using your bow? Please tell me the reason.”
And then Lakshmana started replying to that question.
4059. “When your brother Sugreeva came and surrendered to him,
My brother took an oath that he would send you who has erred ,
To the lord of the southern direction and he sent an arrow hiding himself ,
To avoid the possibility that you would also surrender to him .” said Lakshmana.
4060That Vali who was the chief of the clan of monkeys , keeping in his mind,
The conversations that have taken place , became calmed down and believing that ,
Rama who is great all over the world would not do anything against Dharma,
And changed his mind , and saluted the lord of the Vedas,
About whom he has heard and started telling as follows.
4061. That Vali who had left demeaning thoughts from his mind , looking at Rama ,
Told, “Oh Lord , who shows his grace like mother to all beings ,and who stood,
Making other people say that you are follower of Dharma and are tolerant ,
Is it possible for me who is like a dog to faultlessly understand what you told ,
About the correct path as mentioned in the books dealing with Dharma?
Please pardon the bad deeds done by me out of ignorance ?”
4062.He again begged him “Oh my father , I am a monkey , who cannot think,
And differentiate between the good and bad and understanding this ,
Do not bother about the hot hurting words by me who is similar to a dog,
Oh Lord who is the medicine even for the cruel disease of birth,
Who can give any boon that is requested” and he further told.
4063.”You hit me by a sharp arrow and at the time of parting of the soul ,
Of the dog like me , graced me by giving me true knowledge ,
You are the divine trinity , you are the primeval God beyond those trinity,
You are everything in this world , you are everything ,
You are sin, You are Dharma , You are enemy and you are friend.”
4064. “Except your arrow which pierced through the matchless boons,
Given by Lord Shiva who burnt the three cities and which made holes,
All over my faultless and strong chest and has taken my soul , Does Dharma exist separately?”
4065.”Oh Lord who is the matchless first , you who are all beings , all things,
All the six seasons and their uses , The flowers and the scent from them,
And Oh lord who is mixed in everything and cannot be separated ,
My good knowledge has told me about who you are and what is your nature,
Would it be impossible for me to get the very difficult to get salvation?”
4066.”I have seen you who is the personification of Dharma that is forever,
Is there anything left for me to see ? That big fate which is coming,
From the very beginning is only up to today for me and the ,
Punishment that you gave for my cruel deeds would lead me to salvation.”
4067. Oh victorious king who has greatness greater than the sky ,
My brother who brought you here for the sake of killing me ,
Due to the consultations that he had with the clan of not great monkeys,
Has attained the useless kingship and has left the kingdom,
Of salvation to me, Can he ever do a better help to me?”
4068. Oh Lord who has a beauty like a picture, Me who is like a dog,
Has to get something from you ,. My brother might lose him wisdom ,
And In the state of being drunk the honey from all the flowers ,
Might do many things which should not be done ,
But please do not send this god of death like arrow on him out of anger.”
4069.” There is one more thing that I need to beg and need to get from you,
If some one finds fault with my brother as one who lead to the death of his brother ,
You please stop them from doing it. Oh Lord with great characteristics,
You had given word to him that you would fulfill all his requirements earlier,
And it is not proper for you not to get done all that you have promised him.”
4070.”Oh victorious lord , I am not sufficiently lucky to do another good thing to you,
I was not lucky enough of doing the monkey ‘s job of mine in bringing Ravana tied in my tail,
What is the use of telling about the past events ? and if I want to do something,
This Hanuman is the one who can get it done for you.” Vali assured.
4071. “Oh Lord with the divine wheel, Oh Lord who has shoulders higher than the sky.
Think that Hanuman is equivalent to the great bow that you hold on your red hand,
Please think my brother Sugreeva as one among your brothers,
There is definitely no helpers to you , who are like them and so ,
Take their help and search for the lady who is your wife.”
4072.Vali after telling all this to Rama , looked at Sugreeva ,
Who was standing behind Rama, and extended his long arms ,
And hugged his brother and said, “Oh son who has shoulders,
Higher than the mountains, there is something that I need ,
To tell you which is good..Please accept that ,
And do not start sorrowing about my death” and he told further.
4073.”Oh great thinker, Please understand that , The ultimate truth,
Which is selected by the Vedas , all saints , Brahma sitting on the lotus flower,
And all great leaders of other Sastras , holding the punishing bow ,
Has come as the Rama with sounding anklets for establishing ,
Dharma in this world , Without any doubt understand this truth.”
4074.”Oh Sugreeva who has golden Meru mountain like Shoulders ,
All the souls who want to get salvation , which is the wealth that is never destroyed,
And who follow the penance of good conduct are repeating the name of this Rama.
They always meditate on this Rama ,Please understand this.
If we generally look for his greatness , only the fact of my killing ,
By his strength is sufficient. There is no need for any other proof.”
4075.“Oh brother All those who daily do several cheatings and innumerable sins daily ,
For which there is no redemption any where , if they happen to be killed ,
By this charitable Rama by his arrows , would attain great salvation ,
And what can be told about all those who salute his divine feet and obey his orders.”
4076.”When fate itself has come to help you , what is there difficult to achieve?,
You have already attained all the pleasures of this world and heaven and if we examine,
What remains to be done by you now , is for you to follow the orders by your head,
Of the Lord Vishnu with Goddess Lakshmi on his chest with a single mind,
Please live with greatness in all the three worlds .”
4077.”Changing the habit of getting proud of the monkeys as well as their delusions,
Without forgetting the help rendered by the charitable Rama to you , help him,
When he is in difficulty , if need be by even sacrificing your soul.
.Without any default please do all the orders of Rama who gives to everybody,
The higher state of salvation and get rid of disease of birth which is difficult to remove.”
4078.”You leave without leaving the divine lotus like feet of Rama when you get elated,
By the kingship , without getting reduced of your wisdom , Always remember that ,
The kings are similar to the the burning fire and do all that Lord Rama thinks,
And do not be under the impression that mistakes in slave like service would be ignored.”
4079. After telling all such good advices to his brother who was greatly sorrowing ,
Vali looked at the very pretty Rama who was standing before him and told,
“Oh son of the king of kings Dasaratha, he along with all his relatives ,
Are now things under your custodial protection” and then he made Sugreeva,
Move near Rama and saluted Rama raising both his hands above his head.
4080. After saluting him , looking at the face of Sugreeva which was faded due to sorrow,
He said, Arrange to bring your dear son Angadha speedily near me.” And when Sugreeva ,
Called Angadha the son of Vali who churned the ocean by his hand came there as a scared lad.
4081.That Angadha who had never even thought by his mind, those who had sorrowing mind,
Came and reached there like a matchless full moon and there he saw his dear father ,
Who was lying on the flower bed of the mountain, in the middle of blood flowing like ocean.
4082. That Lad Angadha with moving lustrous ear globes , with flower ,
Decorated tall shoulders saw his father floating in the blood ,
With his own eyes showering sparks of anger and copious tears
And fell like a star on Vali who was like the Moon in the sky, which has fallen down on earth.
4083.”Oh father , You have not done any bad thing to any one on this earth,
Which is surrounded by the ocean covered with waves of tides,
By your mind or action and so how come you attained this great sorrow ,
And apart from that , the god of death instead of getting scared ,
On seeing your face has come to take away your soul?
And now who are there who can destroy without fear , the power of God of death?”
4084.” The cruel Ravana who had the stability as if his feet were nailed to the earth
Lead to the defeat of the elephants that carry the earth and have pestle like legs ,
Used to become scared with his heart beating like drums ,
Whenever he used to think the strength of your feet and tail,
And that fear has now gone away due to your passing away.”
4085,” Have not the eight hereditary mountains and the peaks of the sky touching,
Chakravala giri , now lost the scar that were created whenever your pretty feet steps on them?
Now if some one is asked to churn the ocean of milk with the Mandhara mountain as churner
And serpent as the rope , who would provide that help and get out the nectar ?”
4086. “Oh Lord Vali with red hands and the kingship who does not know to salute,
Anybody else except Lord Shiva who keeps on one side Goddess with tender feet,
Because of you all the devas and not dying and nor reducing in number,
And you who have given nectar to them have now passed away ,
Are there any one left now in this world who is more charitable ?”
4087.Angadha went on telling several such things , cried with sorrow ,
And looking at his father his mind melted like wax which fell on fire ,
And Vali who was having red eyes due to sorrow told him,
“From now on do not be sad” and then hugged him on his chest ,
And further told, “ This act done by Rama who is the lord,
Of all beings is due to the very good fate of mine.”
4088.”If we analyze without any mistakes , the birth and death of all beings,
Living in all the three worlds has already been fixed at the very beginning ,
And due to the great penance that I have done earlier , this very good,
Has now come to me and The heroic Rama who is the undying witness ,
To all births and deaths of all beings came and granted me salvation.”
4089.”Please stop crying like a child , if you firmly believe in what I say,
Please salute this God who is the ultimate truth who does not have
Any other being greater than him has taken a human form and is,
Standing with his feet on earth holding his bow , who appears to our eyes as Rama,
Who is the great medicine who completely cures the disease of taking birth.”
4090.”Oh lad who wears lustrous golden ornaments , never considering ,
That this Rama has destroyed my life, do everything that would give ,
Stability to your life,.If a situation arises when you have to fight with enemies of Rama,
Without any bias support Dharma and do all that is told by Rama,
Who does only good to all beings and live with him.”
4091-4092.After telling several other advices which would do good to Angadha,
That king of the monkey community who has shoulders higher than mountain,
Hugged tightly his son using his two big hands and looking at King Rama,
Who was wearing gold ornaments studded with diamond and other gems ,
Told, “Oh lord with pure knowledge who cannot be realized by people with untrue mind,
This Angadha is one having fire like shoulders which would set fire ,
To the bags of cotton like black asuras who have an army holding long spear ,
On which ghee has been applied and he has purity and honesty in his work ,
And from now on he has been mortgaged to you” and showed Angadha to Rama.
4093. As soon as Angadha fell on his feet , That Rama who has eyes like big lotus,
As a sign of taking him under his safe keeping , showed him his golden sword ,
And told him , “accept it”, and as soon as Rama told like this ,
All the beings who were living in the seven worlds praised Rama ,
And at that time Vali , leaving this mortal body ,
Reached the world beyond the heavens and attained salvation.
4094. Vali was still holding the arrow of Rama and as soon as his hold became loose,
That cruel arrow , without staying in the strong chest of Vali, pierced it, came out , rose up,
Went and washed itself in the pure ocean and after being worshipped by Devas with flowers,
Reached the quiver of Rama, which never leaves his back side.
4095.That Rama who is the Lord Vishnu who slept on the leaf of the banyan tree at deluge,
As soon as Vali died gave him the limitless happiness by granting him sweet salvation,
And holding the hand of Sugreeva , the son of Sun God and Angadha went away from there,
And Tara who had eyes like spears , hearing about the death of Vali ,
Came to the battle ground and cried falling on the body of Vali.
4096.Like the mountain which is like the bud like breasts being anointed by Kumkum,
The blood from the chest of Vali spread all over the breasts of Tara,
Her luxurious hair was turned red , and Tara , fell like streak of lightning ,
On the chest of Vali who was like the hot sky at the time of setting of the Sun ,
Who was wearing a flower garland and who had shining shoulders and rolled.
4097. The sound of flute , sound of Vilari musical instrument and the sound of Veena ,
Felt shy as they were not a match to the sweet voice of Tara and she became sad,
Wailed , sobbed , melted , Saluted with both hands above her head and,
Removing the hair that was falling on her face and again and again wailed and told.
4098.’Oh rare soul who has got great fame , Oh my king , I who am practiced,
To depend on your mountain like shoulders and live with happiness ,
Am in the shore less ocean of sorrow and I am not able to see its boundary
And I am also greatly scared to see the scene of your lying dead.”
4099.”Oh Lord who does have wavering attitude , would you not take me also,
Who is still not dead due to the sorrow of your death ? Oh God ,
Who is the form of my fate which still is angry with me ,
If the soul goes away from the body , is there some method to keep only the body alive?”
4100.”The Lord Yama who has taken away your soul , due to your feeding him ,
With well scented nectar , has got the ability to retain his soul in his body forever ,
Do you not know this? Or if it is not like that , is he who is not grateful ,
To you, who have given him nectar , a person of low integrity?”
4101.”How are you able to stay here without going to each direction ,
And offer with devotion new flowers at dawn, noon and dusk ,
And worship that Lord Shiva with Goddess Parvathi ?”
4102.”Oh Lord who is lying on earth , who is lying there with your mountain like,
Shoulders completely coated with dust , Is this what , you ultimately attained?
Seeing me who does not have ability to sorrow , wailing before you ,
How is it that you are not doing anything? What fault have I done?”
4103.”Oh great one who never utters a lie , Leaving me standing here,
Sorrowing and crying , you have attained the land of devas who do not live in truth,
Oh Lord , When you told “you are my only soul” , was it a lie?”
4104.”Oh Lord who has strong shoulders suitable to fight in war,
If truly I am within your mind , then the cruel arrow of the enemy ,
Would have killed me also? But suppose you are living ,
In my mind who is lonely , you would not have died but be alive,
And so both of us were not there in each others mind.”
4105.”All those devas who live in heaven , if they had not forgotten,
The very great help done by you to them would have praised you,
“Oh father You gave us nectar without eating it,
And we became without death by eating it “ and did they shower ,
Fresh flowers on you and come to receive you with great love?”
4106. “Oh Lord , who would give even nectar if some one requests ,
If that person whose name is Rama who sent the arrow ,
That would definitely kill , hiding himself , has requested you ,
Would you not have given the kingship and wealth to Sugreeva?”
4107.”Even before you went to fight with Sugreeva , I told you that,
Rama has come to help him , but you did not accept those words ,
And told “That unbiased Rama would not do things like that”,
And came to fight with your brother and you who should have,
Seen the deluge is now dead. When would I be able to see you?”
4108.”If you go near and attack , even the great Meru mountain would have,
Become powdered and how is it that one arrow broke open your chest?
I would not believe that this is the truth , possibly this is the magic of devas,
And possibly the one who has died and lying here , is some other Vali.”
4109. Tara told* , “oh son , due to his brother bowed before your father ,
As per his greatness and later his becoming the enemy of your father ,
Your father is no more , our happy life is shattered , Did you not see it?”
* Angadha was absent from there at that time.
4110.”Due to his rare strength , that Rama who holds a bow that removes sorrow,
Has done an act which is not proper to any hero , after deep thought ,
To all those great people who live following Dharma , whatever they do,
Would seem correct , Is it some thing which is not the truth ?”
4011-4012.Thus wailing Tara , again and again repeated similar type of words ,
Getting unified with great sorrow , without having any sensory feelings ,
And was standing helplessly . Seeing her state , Hanuman,
Who was just and had ability to do anything and who was like a mountain,
Send that Tara accompanied my monkey ladies to her private apartment,
And got done all the necessary after-death rituals by Angadha ,
And later he completed telling Rama all that has happened.
4013. At that time the sun who shines removing all darkness ,
Set on the mountain in the west and that face of Lord Sun,
Looked like the face of Vali who was the king of monkeys.
4014.The Sun set in the evening and that soft natured Rama,
Thinking about the state of Sita sat in one place ,
Became thin and sorrowed mentally and
With great difficulty passed through that ocean of night.
The chapter on governance
(Rama requests Sugreeva to assume kingship. He is crowned by Lakshmana , Sugreeva requests Rama to live with .Rama declines but teaches Sugreeva , the lessons of being a good king. Sugreeva goes to the city. Later Angadha is sent to city .Hanuman wants to live with Rama but Rama tells him that his help may be needed by Sugreeva and he is also sent back. Rama and Lakshmana climb the mountain and stay there waiting for the rainy season to get over.
In Valmiki Ramayana, the crowning of Sugreeva is held by his friends. At the same Angadha is also crowned as Yuva Raja . The teaching of Rama to Sugreeva about how to rule is not there in Valmiki Ramayana , IN fact in that Ramanayana , Vali on his death bed does that.)
4115, “Thinking that his son is going to wear the golden crown,
The Sun God as a prelude to becoming happy , for helping,
Goddess Lakshmi to come out opened the doors of lotus flower,
Using his hands which are his red hot rays.
4116.At that time Rama who was the lord of mercy looked at ,
His very wise younger brother and requested, “Oh brother , go and crown,
The son of Sun god as per proper rituals by your hands .”
4117. That great one immediately looked at Hanuman who is capable,
Of Fighting as per rules of Dharma said, “Oh heroic one , go and
Arrange to bring immediately all that is needed for the crowning ceremony.”
4118. AS soon as the sacred waters and auspicious things to anoint ,
Sugreeva as well as the golden crown praised by all people were brought,
The brother of Rama did all the rituals that are needed to crown Sugreeva,
4119. With the Vedic Pundits showering their blessings, with devas ,
Who are in heaven shower the honey filled freshly opened flowers,
That brother of Rama who was the chief of those good qualities,
AS per the rituals prescribed by learned people crowned Sugreeva,
4120. When Sugreeva wearing the great golden crown saluted Rama,
On his great divine feet and at that time that Lord who stood
At the end of fulfilled words , hugged him on his chest and told.
4121.”Oh valorous one , you go from here and reach the place that you live ,
After thinking do all the acts that are needed to be done properly ,
And then do after clear thinking all that needs to be done ,
As mentioned in the books of law and along with Angadha.
The son of Vali , who died in the battle establish yourself in wealth and live happily.”
4122.”Then along with truthful and wise ministers and councilors and with,
Faultless heroes with good character who do work as per their strength ,
Establishing a pure contact with them do faultless acts and
Without going near or very far from other people ,
Rule so that other people would consider you like God.’
4123.”If there is a smoke somewhere this world has sufficient wisdom
To know that there is a burning fire somewhere and in spite of that ,
The deceptive acts as recommended by the people who wrote great books ,
Is also needed and you should behave with great culture ,
Even to those who are your enemies after judging their character ,
And get needed benefits and also with a smiling face tell only sweet things.”
4124. “You also should engaged in protection of your wealth , thinking ,
About its greatness and taking in to consideration that it is even desired by devas ,
And is in your custody and also know that in front of the world ,
Whatever may the nature of sages and others, they would be,
Of three types viz enemies, friends and those who are not bothered.”
4125.”Do all that needs to be done to everyone , not doing those acts that leads be bad results,
Even when the bad thing told about us reaches us , remove the bad words and tell only good words,
Telling only words of truth , not desiring objects that belong to others ,
Making those who depend on progress well and we ourselves becoming,
Greater than them , are those which you should do with great happiness.”
4126.”Oh Sugreeva who has broad shoulders , do not berate others and trouble them,
Thinking that they are inferior to us . Because I did not follow this and found fault with it,
And due to that I did bad to her who has a hunched frame and who is called Mandhara ,
She developed enmity with me and made me suffer of poverty ,
And easily pushed me to the great ocean of cruel sorrow.”
4127.”Please understand the truth “ due to ladies death would happen to men “,
Without any doubt , and to know this clearly , the act of Vali is sufficient ,
And you also see the sorrow happening and bad name coming to us due to those ladies,
Is there any more need to tell more examples to make it clear.”
4128.”Please protect your citizens in such a way that they tell about you,
“He is not our king but the mother who protects us well. Though ,
Protecting like that is normal habit of kings , if bad events happen,
Punish those who cause it without crossing the tenets of Dharma.”
4129. “Oh friend , if we see properly , the two events of birth and death,
Are caused by the bad and good Karma done by that individual ,
And you know about it . Even if Lord Brahma who was born out ,
Of the lotus flower grown out of belly Vishnu goes against Dharma ,
It would lead him to his death and so not slipping away from Dharma ,
Would lead to strengthening of life span, Is there anything more that needs to be told?”
4130.”Getting wealth and its destruction are due to sin and good deeds done by those souls,
Even matchless wise poets do not tell that there is any other reason accept that for them,
And so Oh Sugreeva, who is appropriate , in the war for pride between Dharma and the Sin,
It is better to do good act that benefits us rather than bad acts which harms us.”
4131. “Leraned men tell that these are all proper for all those who are kings ,and so ,
Rule properly as per what is told in the books after proper research ,
And after the rainy season is over , when you come and meet me ,
You come along with your ocean like army and so go now ,” said ,
That pretty Rama and hearing that Sugreeva told.
4132.”Oh charitable lord, This Kishkinda mountain which has streams along with trees ,
Is a place where monkeys live . Except this drawback, it is equal and even better,
Than the land of devas and so for our fulfilling your orders which you give ,
Due to mercy towards us , please be kind enough to stay with us.
4133. “Oh killer of enemies , After surrendering to you and after getting mercy from you,
If we go separately and enjoy great wealth , is no different from great poverty ,
And so till the time comes for searching the goddess with black broad eyes ,
Please stay with us here”Saying like this Sugreeva fell at the feet and saluted Rama.
4134. That great Rama after hearing this smiled softly , said, “ For people like us ,
Who do penance, it is not desirable to live in a palace besides , if we stay with you,
You would spend all the time in being hospitable to us and you would commit ,
Fault in the way of ruling which should be done with thought and research.”
4135.”Oh Sugreeva who merits to live well, I undertook to live in the harsh and burning ,
Forest for fourteen years and so I would not stay in prosperous cities where kings live,
Oh valorous one who has pretty and strong hands , Is there any pleasure that I can get,
Except with Sita who speaks like the music of Yaazh ?”
4136. “When my wife is living alone in the prison of the Rakshasa, If people happen to tell,
That Rama liked the Immeasurable joy of living along with his soul like friends ,
Oh Sir would these cruel words come to end at the deluge when all worlds are destroyed?”
4137. Me , who has left the nature of those who never leave the dharma of family life ,
And also left out the dharma of holding the bow and fighting and living ,
The sweet life along with friends are not very good habits suitable to the great ,
And so I would do daily penance and observe strict observations with Dharma ,
So that all the bad acts that I have done are completely removed.”
4138,Rama who stands firmly on good behavior , which is easy to tell and
Difficult to practice looking at Sugreeva told , “Please go and do all acts ,
That are necessary of kingship properly and as soon as four months are over ,
Come to the place I am ,with an army which is like an ocean with great waves.”
4139. When the king of the monkey clan heard those words , unable ,
To tell anything in reply and understanding the implication of Rama,
Who was wearing the high garb of saints , with tears flowing his eyes,
After properly saluting him by falling on earth and went ,
To his city carrying in his mind inestimable amount of sorrow.
4140.Then Rama who is the colour of the blue cloud looked at with grace ,
Angadha who fell on earth and saluted his divine feet and told him,
“You become one of good behavior and without considering this Sugreeva,
As your father’s brother , consider him as your own father and obey his orders.”
4141, Rama after telling him further many such words told him,
“Please accompany Sugreeva” and after that that famous Angadha ,
Saluted the feet of Rama and went to his city and afterwards ,
Rama looked at Hanuman and said, “oh pretty valorous hero,
You also please go and with your wisdom help Sugreeva ,
In duties involved in running the kingdom “
4142, That Hanuman who had the friendship that only showers love ,
In his mind without untruth said, “I who am like a dog would live here itself ,
Obey your orders to the best of my ability and do all minor jobs “
And he saluted both the divine feet of Rama , That Rama ,
Whose eyes were only looking at truth , told the following words .
4143. “If a kingdom without boundaries and which had very great wealth,
Which was ruled by a matchless king who had all regal qualities,
Is conquered by another king by force , in that rule,
There would be good as well as bad aspects and so , oh sir,
It can be stabilized only by a person like you who has wisdom and patience,”
4144, “After establishing that kingship belonging to Sugreeva ,
Who has all the good habits of culture and taking the responsibility ,
Of the job that is to be done for me , as there is no one else ,
And so you who is Dharma personified , as per my request ,
Please go to the city of Sugreeva “ he said.
4145,When that Rama who is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu who held the wheel,
Told such words to Hanuman , He told Rama “Long live and I will do like that ,
If that is your order “ saluted him and went towards Kishkinda ,
And Rama the lord of several earlier deluges along with his brother,
Who was like an elephant with the mask , reached another tall mountains.
4146. AS per the orders of Rama the son of sun god went to Kishkinda and went inside ,
His own private apartments and with honourable ministers and relatives,
Standing around him , saluted Tara who was like a mother to him ,
And considering that the advices given by his elder brother as his father ,
Started ruling that place in a very good manner.
4147. With all the monkey heroes like relatives doing all that is needed ,
He assumed that kingship which was blessed with all wealth,,
And that kingdom extended up to the end of all directions ,
And he ordered the valorous Angadha with inestimable strength ,
To help in the rule as the prince of that kingdom
And along with al relatives, with wealth earned as per Dharma,
That Sugreeva happily and sweetly ruled Kishkinda and then.
