Chapter on head brooch.
(Hanuman tells Sita , that he would carry her on his back to the place of Rama. She tells him that it is not proper due to several reasons . Hanuman agrees with her reply. Later she tells that she can keep her soul only for one more month and requested Hanuman to tell Rama to come by that time. Hanuman consoles her and asks for incidents of identity. She tell about the attack on her by the son of Indra and how once Rama suggested her to keep the name of Kaikeyi to her pet bird. She later gives Hanuman her hair brooch which Hanuman keeps safely .With great sorrow Hanuman takes leave from Sita.
In Valmiki Ramayana Sita tells about the incident when day her Thilaka got erased , how Rama put a Thilaka using laterite stone and not about the incident of choosing name to her pet bird.)
5345.Hanuman thinking that Sita who was like Goddess Lakshmi may commit suicide,
And felt that it is not easy to tell her that” I am here who would protect you so , do not be scared”.
Thought that it would be better to carry the soul like wife of Lord Rama ,
Who is the root cause of all the world and move her from there.
5346.He told her , “Please hear my words , do not brush it away ,
If that Ravana were to kill you, it would be no point in winning over him,
And so what is the point and collecting ideas as to what we could do,
I would take you and show to Rama and salute both your feet,
And this happens to be the proper time to do it.”
5347.”Oh Sita who is greatly pretty and who is like a golden climbing plant,
If you sit on my shoulders covered with soft hair peacefully,
Leaving your sorrow and get a sweet sleep , then I can carry you ,
And take you to the hill where Lord Rama lives,
Within a second , without making any delay on my way.”
5348.”Oh lady with curly hair , if some Rakshasas come to know,
That I am taking you away and if some Rakshasas chase me in the middle,
I would cool my anger by shattering those asuras and make them fall down,
And I who have got the boon of deathlessness , after seeing your sorry state,
Would not go back to Rama with empty hands, without solving it.”
5349.”Oh mother, even if you order me to take you along with Lanka ,
I would uproot it and carry it on one of my strong hands ,
Destroy all those who try to stop me and place it before Rama,
Who holds the cruel bow and then salute his feet ,
Where he wears the heroic anklets and this is not difficult for me.”
5350,”Oh Lady who is similar to Arundathi, if I go near Lord Rama and tell,
That , “Your nectar like consort is living with great sorrow in a prison,
By some people who are great cheaters, without getting her freedom “,
What is the point in my doing service to him.
5351.”I who have got protection to my life , with the shoulders ,
Which did not have relations with wounds of war ,
Would reach Rama and I would describe about the strength of the enemies,
And tell him that I did not have the ability to see the lady and return back,
Or shall I tell a lie that I did not have the luck to bring her back.”
5352.”If you order me , to destroy within the time of batting of the eye and melt this city of Lanka,
Which is surrounded by walls and which is guarded, and then after destroying,
The very different type of Ravana , also destroy all the Rakshasa army ,
And go speedily away from this city of Lanka , I would do it now itself.”
5353, “Oh lady Sita who has a forehead like moon That Rama who is valorous ,
After getting you would lose all the sorrows in his mind , with a clear mind ,
If he reaches this city of Lanka with you and completely destroy the clan of Rakshasa
Then all the great sorrow of this world would go away .This is a great deed.”
5354.”Oh lady who is like a young creeper speaking very pretty words ,
Now there is nothing more that needs to be told ,.Please shower your grace ,
On this slave and make me get this luck according to my fate and afterwards ,
Reach Rama and put out your sorrow ,Please get up on my shoulders quickly ,”
And telling like this he saluted her divine feet which brings good luck.
5355.Looking at Hanuman who told words that would lead to good results,
Which were very appropriate similar to a calf standing before its mother ,
She told , “What you have told is impossible for you to do,”
And afterwards told pure and soft words addressing Hanuman.
5356.’This is not impossible for you to do and is suitable for your strength,
You have thought about it properly and you would also do it, but ,
Though I am feminine having great ignorance and with lesser wisdom ,
I am able to conclude that it is not a proper thing to do as I can understand.”
5357”Oh Hanuman when you are carrying me , if asuras encircle you ,
In the middle of the sea and attack you with cruel arrows ,
From all directions , you would totter fighting with them,
Who are like poison and also take care of me ,
Making you confused as well as one affected by solitude.”
5358.”Apart from this there is also another reason . By your act,
The victorious bow of Rama would get stained,
What is the benefit in that? Like the dogs which cheat and steal ,
And eat that food , do you also want to cheat and take me ,
From those Rakshasas who took me away by cheating.”
5359. “In the battle field where my Lord is fighting with the bow,
When that Rakshasa with sword like eyes looked at my body
In an inappropriate manner , Would I not want his body ,
To be eaten by crows with the Devas witnessing it all rather than retain my life .”
5360 “When the archery of Rama and Lakshmana who hold the bow as well as victory ,.
Matures and they cut the noses of Rakshasis when they still have Mangalya Suthra,
Would the shyness that I posses also become great.”
5361.”If this city of Lanka built on the golden mountain which is populated by
The Rakshasas who do not follow Dharma does not become ,
A big mountain of bones , how would I be able to tell the world ,
About my great lineage , character as well as chastity.”
5362.”Would the sorrow of becoming a bone mountain stop with Lanka,
Populated by people who are like animals? I could burn all the worlds,
Which go against Dharma by my words but I did not attempt to do it,
As I thought that it would be a stain to the strength of bow of Rama.”
5363.”Oh personification of truth , there is one more thing that needs to be told,
Please hear that for me it is not proper to touch any other body except that of Rama
Who has growing Valour , because your body which has destroyed ,
The cravings of five senses, would akso be called as ‘male’ by this world.”
5364,”if that Ravana with debased culture had touched me , would,
The soul of Ravana remain in his body for such a long time ?
I would have destroyed him with in a period of batting the eye,
For due to his great power he uprooted the hermitage ,
Where I was living and brought it here.”
5365,”That Ravana has a curse given by the primeval Lord Brahma, born out of flower,
That if he touches the body of a lady whose mind is not attracted by him,
All his divine heads would break in to pieces and this protected my soul.”
5366.” The maiden daughter of Vibheeshana who has masculinity ,
And who wears a shining crown, showed great mercy on me,
And had told me earlier about the existence of this curse .”
5367.”Due to this curse being there , I did not go backwards ,
In the observance of Dharma , always thinking about ,
The valour of my Lord Rama and also to prove ,
My purity to this world, I stayed alive up to this time ,
Had that curse been not true , I would have died long back.”
5368.”Oh sir , with your eyes which see the truth , please see, the land
Along with the long hermitage built by the younger brother,
Which was uprooted and brought here by Ravana ,
In a stable condition and kept here.”
5369.”With the firm aim of protecting my soul which is depressed ,
I would come to this lake which is like Rama holding the bow ,
Which is full of water and flowers at the day time without fail.”
5370.”Oh sir because of that , your thought of carrying me back ,
Is not desirable and what you have to do is to ,
Go back to Rama who is the lord of Vedas”said Sita ,
And that Hanuman who did not have any fault replied like this.
5371.Hanuman whose sorrow in heart with doubt was removed,
Thought that the character got through penance of the consort of Rama,
Who was the lord of the world was indeed very great ,
And becoming very happy started praising her .
5372. “Oh mother , the world made dark by Ravana would see light,
And even if I delay a little further it would be filled with anxiety,
And so please tell me what I have to convey to Rama “
Saying this Hanuman fell at her feet and saluted her.
5373.”Oh Hanuman who is just, I would wait for the coming of my lord,
For only one more month and if he does not come , I do not have the ability ,
To hold on to my soul. The command of that king depends on your behavior ,
And so who are very wise please keep these in your mind.”
5374.”Even though I am not a suitable wife to Rama
Whose chest is decorated by garlands
And due to that even if I am not in the heart of Rama ,
Though he does not have mercy on me, please request him,
To desire his own natural conduct of protecting the valour.”
5375.”Please tell this one word to Lakshmana who is praised by all,
And who is victorious , “as per the commend of Lord Rama ,
You have the duty to protect me and so please free me ,
From this cruel prison where I have been imprisoned.”
5376.”Since within one month , my great penance is getting over ,
By that time if Lord Rama does not arrive here ,
Request him to do my obsequies by his red hand ,
In the shores of river ganges. Please tell him this.”
5377.”Oh sir, Please tell the Lord of Dharma that , Sita who is going to die in Lanka ,
Salutes with raised hands her three great mother in laws, and please tell him .
Not to forget this though he does not seem to have any mercy on me.”
5378.”Please tell in the divine ears of Rama that when he reached Mithila,,
And married me , he had promised , “In this birth I would not even think ,
Of another lady by my mind , “ which was a boon he gave to me.”
5379.”In this Lanka, after I stay with sorrow and happen to lose,
My sweet soul and when I am born again in this world .
I should not do the evil act to hug the divine body of Rama and cause him evil,
Please tell him that I am requesting this boon with saluting hands.”
5380.” I am one who is not fated to see him occupy the throne,
And see his moving bell of rule nor see him going in a procession,
On an elephant with great decorations . So what is the point,
In talking about it .I would become sorry thinking about my old fate .”
5381”Lord Rama would only go to Ayodhya , for removing the depression,
Of his people who think about only himself , for removing sorrow of his mothers ,
For removing the burden of ruling the country being suffered by Bharata ,
And would not think of me who is unsuitable and come to Lanka.”
5382.”Please inform my salutations to my father , mother and relatives,
Please request the Lord of monkeys Sugreeva to follow Rama ,
Who has very pretty shoulders to the endlessly pretty Ayodhya,
And crown Rama as the king of Ayodhya ,”
5383.When Lady Sita was thus painfully upset , Hanuman looking at her ,
Told , “Oh lady, you have not still left sorrowing “ and then told her ,
Sweet and apt words which were logical and reasonable so that her minds became clear.
5384.”You would die here itself , It is true? Would after your death ,
Lord Rama who suffers due to your parting continue to live?
He can crown himself only after leaving the forest and reaching Ayodhya,
Is it not ?Are all these things that are going to happen?”
5385.”That Ravana who has kept you, who is the form of chastity,
In a prison , it seems would live with his sweet soul and Rama ,
Who holds the matchless bow, slipping away from his duty ,
It seems would return from the forest. What event compares to these?”
5386,”Oh good lady , Without killing those Rakshasas who troubled you,
Would we go back to Ayodhya carrying our soul and like us ,
Should not our Lord Rama who holds the bow,
Like all of us , also go to the city of Ayodhya.”
5387.Rama had removed our sorrow , when we were all in the river of sorrow,
And has given us wealth which can never get reduced and if,
We do not free you and give you back to Rama,
Who can be better than us , who are inactive and indolent?”
5388. “To Rama who took an oath before the sages that ,
“I would not return to my country Kosala unless I make devils eat the liver,
Of those Rakshasas , who ate the very good people who are sages,”
Is destroying the Rakshasas and getting you free from prison an impossible act.”
5389.”Suppose we return back without saying that we have released ,
You from prison where you were kept by the very weak Asuras ,,
Would this be accepted by citizens of the country , people of good nature ,
And by all those who have read books which are good?”
5390.”Suppose we decide that Our Lady Sita who is chaste ,
Who does not lie and who cannot be approached ,
Died before the cheating Asuras touched her ,
And wore a garland of fame, and go back ,
Would not our valour be blamed ?”
5391.”If you who happen to die due to the great sorrow of parting ,
I am destroyed and would our bad fame go away ,
Even if using cruel arrows we burn all the matchless seven worlds ?”
5392.”Oh Lady who is like a goddess , earlier when Rama who is expert in war,
Came to know about nature of Rakshasas , he wanted to destroy all the three worlds ,
But once he comes to know about you , would he assume the posture of peace?”
5393. “The anger of Rama which does not flare up without any cause,
Would not stop with taking away the souls of those murderous Asuras,
And not only that would not the earth and heaven also get destroyed?
Would there be any other thing near by which would not get destroyed?”
5394”Oh mother , on the day that he hears the news about you ,
Would not the arrows of Rama who holds the wheel ,
Eat away the seven pot like oceans of this world ,
Along with the seven oceans of heaven , like the fire at deluge .”
5395.”Lord Rama destroyed the enemies of Devas,
Stifled the sinful acts of the world , encouraged,
Those who are suitable , at all times did good deeds,
Have you not heard these praises of Rama sung by the world.”
5396.” Is it not better for you to live with sorrow ,
In this prison for a few more days and ,
See the good times later, especially when due to your being ,
In prison great and good Dharma lives further.”
5397.”Whenever the ghosts bathe in the flowing blood ,
Of the Rakshasas who are like thorns .,
The devas who see this from hiding would become happy ,
And would you not make this scene of pride to occur?”
5398.”Please see the rivers of blood from wounds of Rakshasas,
Who are torn by the lustrous arrows which come,
Like the thunder at the end of final deluge ,
Fill up the seven oceans and hear the constant sound from them.”
5399.” You would see the mountain of Mangala Suthras , which cannot ,
Be even crossed by Vali , which are cut and thrown away by Rakshasis ,
With tear drenched eyes after beating their paunches ,
Which were similar to the belly of pregnant women.”
5400. “You would see that the ghosts which are as long as the sky ,
Huge crowd of birds with cruel wings which are innumerable ,
Take bath in the blood coming out of the wounds of Rakshasas,
And then again taking bath in the flowing river of Rakshasi tears.”
5401.”You would see the monkeys which do masculine jobs , dance ,
In the stages where Deva maidens danced accompanied by
The drums played by hands and the stringed instruments played by hands.”
5402.The Huge collection of mountain like corpses which would be floating,
In the river of blood from that wounds of criminal Rakshasas who did silly work,
Would reach the huge sea with its shores and block it. You would be seeing that.”
5403. “You would see the golden city of Lanka melting in the fire of bad fate ,
Created by the coal of the Rakshasas who are engaged in cruel acts ,
Due to matchless fire of Sita being in the middle of that fire ,
Which is kindled by the great wind of arrows sent by hand of Rama.”
5404.” Oh Lady Sita ,crows would jump and sit on the fallen heads of Ravana ,
In the war waged by his enemies , and due to good fate would peck his eyes ,
Which had seen your faultless divine body by their very sharp beaks ,
Take it away and eat them, You would also see this.”
5405.”Making, the blue elephants of directions which were shamed,
And were defeated by Ravana, happy , the arrows from the bow of Rama
Would cut all his heads and put them under their feet . You will see it.”
5406. When the arrows are showered like rain , the blue sky
Once got sweat and the pretty flags of Lanka which are kept,
In several places close by waved and produced air to cool it,
But in that Lanka you would see the ghosts raising
Making huge sounds and dance there with great glee.”
5407. “The stream of blood from the body of blue coloured Rakshasas,
Raised the level of the ocean where they had reached ,
And returned back by the river and similar to that ,
You would see the God of death who does not stop killing,
Even at the destruction of the world at deluge, vomiting,
The Rakshasas due to eating them in excess.”
5408. “ You would see the crowd of monkeys which move about in a row ,
Bathe in the same pond which is situated in the scented Karpaga garden,
In which the Rakshasas used to take bath along ,
With ladies who were similar to the ladies in heaven.”
5409.’What would result in telling many such examples?,
The divine arrows of Rama would destroy all the asuras ,
In this world and go also outside and would attack the three worlds,
And you would see the destruction of Rakshasas living there also.”
5410.”Oh mother you need not live for one month sorrowing ,
In this city of Lanka because as soon as I see Rama with great speed ,
Would he look for a good time to start for here? Would he even ,
Wait for one more second to start for here?”
5411. “Only in the words “there is soul “ the soul is existing ,
In that big forest by touching your soul like servant(Lord Rama),
There are no flowers that have not burnt , no leaves are there which are not burnt ,
There are no gardens that have not been burnt and split , there are no creepers.”
5412. “Only if he recovers then only we can say that his mind is tired,
Even if the cloud makes great sound and make the thunder fall on him,
And even if a five headed snake comes near and attacks him ,
Making his body and shoulders faded , would the Lord ever feel it?”
5413,” Like the curd churned by the churner , coming inside ,
And going outside , in between desire and worries ,
With tottering soul and with madness which makes his five senses fall
Due to parting with you , how much pain is There in him ? Can that be measured?”
5414. “ “The truth of my words can only be realized , If you say ,
That in the present state of Rama, he would wait for some time.
Please bid me farewell and give me, some thing
For identification , please give me permission to go ,
And then I would prove all I said,
Like the gooseberry kept on the palm of my hands ,
And then you will realize that a lie cannot last.”
5415, “Oh divine mother , even before the pure Rama and
The king of monkeys Sugreeva hear about you and become happy ,
One huge crowd of monkeys would make a hill out of the ocean,
Cross the ocean , lay siege of Lanka and would shout in joy.
Please hear that by your ears and live with joy.”
5416.”Oh lady , when the army whose strength is beyond estimation,
Arrives here at a latter date and reach this city , you will see in its middle ,
Lord Rama riding on my shoulders looking like ,
Lord Vishnu who with great luster travels on Garuda.”
5417.”Lord Lakshmana would be riding on the shoulders of Angadha ,
And look like the hot sun rising out of the rising mountain and ,
The monkey army would come and stay here and so please get out ,
Of the sorrow as well as doubt and you would also get out of this solitude.”
5418.”Oh Sita who decorates her hair with kurava flowers,
If Rama does not free you from this prison within the time limit,
Indicated by you , then that Rama would become Ravana ,
And get bad name and sin attached to him, and Ravana would become Rama.”
5419 . Like this hearing these faultless words of Hanuman , Lady Sita ,
Got great clarity and got joy as well as love in her heart,
And decided that it would be proper to send Hanuman to Rama,
And with wisdom in her mind , started telling the following .
5420. That Lady Sita who talks sweet words looked at Hanuman and told ,
“”Oh sir, Oh great one , go with speed, win over every evil,,
I would not tell you anything now, but I would be saying to you ,
Some earlier identifying incidents which would be clearly understood by the Lord.”
5421.”Tell him slowly about the incident when one day , below ,
The chithrakoota mountains which touch the sky , how a crow,
Wounded me with its nail and how Rama getting angry ,
Took a grass by the side of the stone and sent it as Brahmastra.”
5422.”Oh Hanuman who follows the life of truth , when once ,
I asked him , “ Oh king, Whose name shall I keep to my tender soul like pet bird,”
He said with love , “Oh Sita , Give her the name of my faultless mother ,
Who is the daughter of the King of Kekaya”.Please tell him these true words.”
5423.After saying this she thought ,”There is no other great incident ,
Which is sweet and which you can tell him.” She decided ,
To hand over her hair brooch which she had kept tied in her pretty apparel,
And which by its own luster in this world and heaven had won over the Sun.
5424.She took it in her flower like hands , thought of Rama and became anxious,
And seeing that Hanuman was astonished thinking “What is placed in her hand?”
And that brooch chased away the darkness which was sleeping in all the seven worlds.
5425. The Rakshasas with cruel eyes doubted due to that light ,”whether the Sun which ,
Travels behind the clouds has come to the city of Lanka ?”and thought
“Now he would not be scared” and due to that light the lotus flower ,
Which had become low along with Chakravaka birds by closing opened up,
And the Surya Kantha stones spread their great luster.
5426.She showed Hanuman the lustrous hair brooch which was like the Sun God,
Which is on the top of the rainy cloud which resembled her hair and which had the red colour ,
Resembling the shining body of the tender Sita and which was shining like the divine feet of Rama.
5427. That lady Sita who had real fame looked at Hanuman and told him ,
“You gave me back my sweet soul due to your liking to me and this brooch,
Is like my eyeballs and was kept safely tied in my apparel .Please take this,
As the big identity” and then she gave the hair brooch to Hanuman.
5428.Hanuman saluted her , took the brooch and tied to his cloth,
So that it will not go missing again saluted her crying , went round her,
Three times and saluted her feet and Sita who saw that,
Greeted and praised him and he went to the other side.
6.Pozhil irutha Padalam
Chapter on destroying of the garden
(After taking leave from Sita, Hanuman felt that if he does not do something more , it would not be proper.Also he wanted to see Ravana and talk to him. With this aim in view he uproots all the trees in the garden where Sita was imprisoned. The devas of seasons who were guarding the garden , rushed to tell about the damage that is being done by a monkey.
There is no mention of Devas of season guarding that garden in Valmiki Ramayana , There it is the Rakshasis who are guarding Sita who report about the destruction to Ravana.)
5429. Hanuman thinking of the direction he has to proceed ,
Decided to go north and took his big form suitable to it,
And went speedily through the garden with flowers swarmed by bees,
Thought that, just seeing Sita and going back was much simpler act for his strength,
And decided to do some other job, which is suitable for him to do.
5430.He thought “ If I do not hit the Asuras who do base acts , throw .
This city surrounded by walls in the sea , which houses the fishes and
Take away the doe eyed lady and keep her at the feet of Rama and salute him ,
Even when I am there how can I become a true assistant to Rama.”
5431.”I also have not tied tightly the Ravana with ten heads and twenty hands ,
And kept him in a cruel prison , I have neither won him in a war ,
And when it is so , how is my oath that we will help each other proper?”
5432.”Is there any demerit for me to fight with Asuras whom I see ,
Make them distraught , when the very strong Rakshasa Ravana ,
Is witnessing it and using my matchless prowess ,
Catch hold of the flower decked hair of his chief queen,
Mandodhari And take her and imprison her ?”
5433. “I think that the proper service as a servant that I can do to Rama,
Would be to collect all the asuras and harshly chase them away and so,
There is no need to think any further about it and he further thought,
As to how he can draw all these asuras and get engaged in a cruel battle with them?”
5434 , “I will soon break this garden and destroy it and if I do so,
As soon as that great sound reaches the ears of the Asuras ,
They would get very angry with me and come to wage a war,
And if they come like that using my strength ,
I would kill all of them, and this is definitely the proper plan.”
5435. “If all those people who come to fight with me die,
And are not able to return back , that Ravana of cruel strength ,
Which cannot be opposed would come to a war with me.
If he does I would destroy his ten crowned heads and,
Thus removing the sorrow in my mind , I would go back happily.
5436. Thinking like this in his mind Hanuman whose shoulders,
Were like Sun and moon who go round the Meru mountain ,
Assumed his mega form looking like Lord Varaha ,
Who took the earth in between his teeth , destroyed that garden
By kicking and stamping it completely.”
5437.Some trees died , some broke , some got bent ,
Some dashed against each other and got powdered and fell,
Some fell upside down , Some broke in to pieces,
Some flew in to air in the form of flakes , Some got burnt ,
Some got blackened, Some got bent and moved away bending,
Some shed all its flowers and some fell down,:
5438.”Some trees got upturned along with roots , some got burnt,
Some went near clouds in the sky , some flew in the wind ,
And fel down on slushy mud of the sea, some along with bees,
Went to the heavens dashed , fell down broken.”
5439.”Some of those trees rotated and thrown by Hanuman
Along with the cloud became the leaf food to elephants of directions,
Some trees whose bottom was caught and thrown towards the sky ,
Went through the sky and destroyed pretty gardens of heaven.”
5440.Due to the trees thrown by Hanuman the tides of the sea wandered,
Here and there, the big mansions of the Asuras got shattered and fell at all places,
Some thrown by him dashed against the seven great mountains and became dust,
The silver flowers of some trees , got mixed with falling stars and fell down.
5441.Some trees with bent roots which were uprooted and thrown by Hanuman ,
Went and hung on the tusks of the elephants of directions in rut , who gave them .
To young female elephants , and it appeared as if they were holding the clouds by their trunks.
5442. When the scented flowers of that garden which belonged to poison like Ravana ,
Reached the land of Vidhyadhras, the mountains of Yakshas, and the immortal devas,
Of the heaven those ladies with feet decorated by red cotton juice crowded and picked them.
5443. Some trees which were covered by gold on all sides , looked like,
Streaks of lightning and the big gem studded trees were similar to light of sun.
And when such trees dashed against each other, broke in to pieces,
And fell down like the crowds of stars falling at time of deluge.
5444. The fishes in the sea with lots of water ,swallowed the birds , bees ,
Scented flowers ,honey , buds , fresh leaves, the sweet fruits which fell there ,
And jumped with joy and were crushed later by falling trees and started trembling.
5445.Due to the scattered bunches of flowers, all the places ,
Had only scent of flowers and because of that the meat smell was subdued,
And the sea with tides where great devas take bath along with their consorts,
Became like big ponds which were filled with lotus flowers.
5446. The gem studded stages which were uprooted by Hanuman and ,
Broken kadika trees went one after another and fell in the sea ,
And filled up the sea so that the scented sea had to cross them,
And which made it appear that the sea can be crossed by walking.
5447.Due to the very big trees which Hanuman threw on the lustrous sky ,
Which was like the play ground of Sun in the summer ,
The mansions of Asuras broke like they were hit by thunder from sky,
And became powdered like mountains hit by thunder.
5448.At that time the numerous trees uprooted and thrown by Hanuman ,
Crowded in a dense manner and looked well grown like a cool cloud in the sky,
And that very angry Hanuman made it appear as if,
The garden of the very strong Ravana existed in the sky also.
5449.With honey dropping down , with the birds living there making sound,
When the gem studded trees covered with flowers went towards the sky ,
And with stars nearing them , with light in sky competing with light of the sword,
It looked as if a lustrous plane was travelling in the sky.
5450. Due to Hanuman who was strong like a matchless elephant in war ,
Throwing trees with long branches full of leaves , those trees which were going up ,
As well as falling in to the huge sea , were similar to the huge clouds ,
Which comes down from the sky and drinking the water of the sea.
5451.Like the devas who do wrong , being born in this world ,
And returning after they get filled with wisdom , those ,
Karpaga trees in that garden which are charitable ,
Being thrown up by Hanuman travelled through the sky ,
And appeared as if they had reached the heavens , where they were there earlier.
5452-3. After breaking the verandahs which are gem studded , after ,
Breaking in to pieces the stages using them to fill up lakes near by,
After breaking lustrous huge walls , after destroying ,
Many things of great craftsmanship , after destroying huge hills,
After uprooting vengai and Maramara trees , after picking and throwing ,
The rows of champaka trees growing near Karpaga trees ,
He also broke branches of trees full of mango fruits.
5454.With the spring season which comes before God of love ,
Becoming one with a jaded face , with the gardens in the ,
Sky became upset and started shivering,
The sandalwood trees which broke being hit by the feet of Hanuman,
Started burning like firewood and spit out fire.
5455.With the joyful bees which sing a Pan called Kamaram getting jittery
Huge trees fell on the floor of earth and died,
With the drama stages breaking and falling down ,
Many trees which were full of flowers caught fire and became ash.
5456. Small branches which can bend , flowering creepers ,
The cool places of newly formed leaved which koels like ,
The entrance which had soft flowers , scented bushes ,
Golden coloured rain of honey , bees and peacocks were all destroyed.
5457.With several red creeping plants resembling corals ,
Which were thrown out by Hanuman , similar to streaks of lightning ,
Appearing rounded on the clouds , circled round ,
The mountains which were all around city of Lanka and
The huge trees with golden branches which were thrown on the mountain
Made them appear like the elephant eating huge balls of rice with the golden mask.
5458. At that time the sound of the loud cackling of birds ,
The thunder like sound produced by breaking of trees and,
The joyful shouting of Hanuman who was personification of Dharma ,
Crossed this globe of earth and reached other places.
5459. The crowd of birds living happily along with its kids on trees,
Suffered greatly and the very tall Kongu trees , Padiri trees ,
Along with pretty and cool bees which were singing good songs ,
Went and fell on the sea with very many tides.
5460.The Aachaa trees with the sound of bees which were on the pretty road,
Went and fell in the river filled with pretty water and silt and pressed it ,
And so some other trees which touched the sky went and fell in the sky Ganges river,
Which was formed with the water that was used by Brahma to wash feet of Lord Vishnu.
5461.Due to Hanuman throwing various kinds of trees the big lakes,
Filled with red lotus flowers looked like red sandal paste has been mixed in them,
And the trees of the garden which fell on the pretty salty ocean ,
Along with bees which sing Kamaram pan , made it in to a flowery ocean.
5462.The Karu nochi trees thrown by Hanuman went to all four directions ,
And merged with the long and pretty tides of the ocean and also ,
The sandalwood trees which were thrown fell on and broke ,
The doors and padlocks of buildings and made them fall down.
5463. The freshly opened flowers of that garden which spread sweet smell,
Appeared like the stars which were shining in the sky and the tamarind trees,
Rolled in the sky and when they fell on the ocean , the beetles of conches ,
In that ocean with tides threw out the pretty pearls and ran away from there.
5464.Those pretty trees which had golden branches and studded with ,
Various types of gems , which were thrown by Hanuman towards the sky,
Were shining like rainbow made at night and indicated ,
That Hanuman will destroy Sri Lanka immediately.
5465. When the big Hanuman uprooted the trees which were crowding ,
In that garden then , due to that , the shed where elephants were tied , dancing halls ,
Places of drinking alcohol , the places where the horses with great speed were tied,
Along with chariots on which small gems were tied broke down.
5466.Those greatly lustrous gold flags which were thrown so that,
They would fall in the sea in all directions were similar ,
To the collection of rays of the sun which were cut ,
And fell in to the sea which had storms.
5467 Being thrown by Hanuman, the Very huge trees and the huge mountains
So that they will break made the very lustrous gold compound walls ,
AS well as mansions catch fire and burn and turn in to ash ,
And the people of the city of Lanka got scared and ran to all places.
5468.At that time the moon who is the lord of stars thinking that,
If the Asura called Ravana sees him , he may blame him that ,
Due to your relation with the red mouthed Sita (sister?) you scalded me,
And before the eyes of devas who were my enemies ,
You were with joy watching a monkey break my garden ,
Like a very scared one he went away from the sky.
5469. Due to the faultless gems , gold , Surya Kantha and Chandra Kantha stones,
AS well as the faultless shining trees of that garden which is the seat of the God of love ,
Due to being thrown in different directions by the two hands of Hanuman,
Gave out very great light and the entire world shined in that great darkness.
5470 The various types of animals who lived in that gardens shouted,
Became mentally upset , their eyes rose up being wounded,
The several types of birds living there fell in the sea and got drowned ,
And greatly upset , flew for a whie and not able to fly further ,
Fell on the earth , shaking their wings and when they became dry , with dejection they died.
5471 That Hanuman who had fat shoulders like mountain and pretty broad ,
Chest which was like the Sun, even though he was angry ,
Due to the power of touch , all those divine trees growing densely ,
In that garden and the birds along with the nests made by their of their leaves
Went and reached the heaven ,Can we tell the position any one ,
Will receive if they got the grace and blessings of Hanuman.
5472.In that new pleasant looking garden in which birds lived and was guarded by Asuras ,
Who consider “lie” as their Dharma , only that tree under which Sita,
Who was like a swan sobbing due to sorrow , was sitting ,similar to the Banyan tree ,
Under which Lord Vishnu stays not getting destroyed during final deluge .
5473.Since she had given away the hair brooch which was a royal jewel,
AS identifying material to her soul like consort Rama ,
And alas , she was sitting without any ornaments like a poor lady ,
And at that time to the Sita who had densely grown hair The sun rose up,
AS if he had the intention of buying a new brooch for her through the rising sea.
5474. That Hanuman who was standing alone after destroying the entire garden ,
Was like Lord Vishnu who had measured the fourteen worlds with two steps,
And also like the great and best Mandhara mountain used to churn ocean of milk,
And also like like Lord Rudra who was standing after deluge after destroying everything.
5475.When that garden was being destroyed , those Rakshasis woke up ,
Got very angry ,but looked at Hanuman who was standing like ,
A golden meru mountain with desire and exclaimed , “oh mother,
What is this form we are seeing and who is this “ with great fear asked,
Lady Sita, who had a pretty forehead , “Hey lady , do you know who he is ?”
5476.She replied , “ the evil acts done by evil people could be recognized ,
By only evil people like them and how can good people like me know about it ,
All these are tricks which are being played by Asuras like you , because ,
When in the forest Mareecha came before me in the form of a deer,
And Lakshmana told us that it is an illusion created by Asuras,
But I thought that it is a true deer and took a liking to it.”
5477.When like this Lady Sita replied those Rakshasis , they beat,
Their own belly with their own hands , lost their balance ,
And then they ran making hills , world and sky tremble,
And Hanuman who was equal to his father the wind God ,
Saw a ornamental building there and determining to destroy that ,
Caught hold of it using his very big hands .
5478.It would be difficult for anybody to see that building fully with their eyes ,
It was so tall that even clouds could not go above it ,
Even the wind could not imagine to try to hold it and even at night darkness could not cover it ,
And it stood there making the Meru mountain which touched the sky , felt shy ,
Seeing its height and got mentally upset , Even the earth was finding it difficult to carry it.
5479. That building was perhaps made by Lord Brahma , who sits on a lotus,
By himself as per the orders of Ravana who had twenty pretty hands ,
For the sake of eating away all the stain of darkness of the moon ,
Who had grown for fifteen days , earning more and more light daily,
Who gives the moon light which can be compared to the pouring of new milk.
5480.All the pillars of that building were made of gems , and all the surroundings,
Were made by gold as well as gems ,its backside was made by desirable rows of gems,
And even Lord Sun who spreads the red light throughout the sky ,
Would feel that it could be worn as ornament by him ,
And so for people like us , praising it is an impossible task.
5481-2. That Hanuman , who had heard that Ravana who does cruel deeds,
Once has uprooted the pretty mountain Kailasa which was made of silver,
To make that act as smaller , just like carrying the multi coloured golden Meru mountain,
Using his big hands with sharp nails , easily uprooted that building from earth,
And threw it on the city of Lanka and due to that , hit by that ,
Those mansions which were touching the sky were turned in to powder ,
And due to the falling of fire sparks from it , it burnt all sort of materials,
And many valorous Rakshasas who never get worried about anything were killed.
Would those who want to do evil for others , survive from similar evil actions?
5483.The Gods who protect the big gardens in Lanka which is a part of the earth,
During the six seasons, with a mind that was occupied by great fear ,
And due to that making their cloths wet by passing urine ,
With a form from which due to fear blood was flowing out ,
With legs intertwined with each other preventing them from walking properly ,
Who were wailing similar to the open mouthed citizens ran and reached Ravana.
5484. They went and saluted the feet of Ravana who had anger like that of a lion,
And told, “Oh lord whose rule extends up to the end of directions where,
The elephants of directions live , we have lost the job of protecting the gardens.
Due to a monkey who has shoulders which make the mountains scared,
Entering inside the garden , breaking all trees and throwing them out ,
The gardens, which was looked after well , became like cloth burnt by fire.”
5485.They further told, “It is not easy to tell for that monkey using its legs,
Hands and teeth powdered those trees and made them without a coating of dust,
And also uprooted easily the golden building of Yagna and by throwing it,
Has destroyed the entire divine city of Lanka except for small portions.”
5486.Hearing this Ravana told “has just one monkey destroyed completely ,
The entire garden with golden trees by powdering it and also destroyed ,
That great and rare building like of which cannot be easily seen,
And which is guarded by Rakshasas and also destroyed the city of Lanka?
The valour of the Rakshasas appears to be great!. Such words ,
Would not be uttered by ignorant people” and then he smiled.
5487.When Ravana berated those Gods of the season , they looked at Ravana ,
And told, “Oh king , If the earth has the strength to carry,
The body of that monkey , we have to appreciate that earth.
It would be very great crime to say that monkey is one of the trinity of Gods,
Oh Lord you would see it just now.”
5488. Hanuman shouted the war cry making the water in the ocean,
Going back through the holes on the earth , with the eight elephants ,
Carrying the earth and eight protectors of earth running away in fear ,
With the Rakshasis with red mouth like kovvai fruit ,
Suffering abortions and getting famished and making ,
The globe of the earth blowing up and breaking.

Uprooted the huge Chaithya building there , What of our great strength?
Can there be a greater disrespect that can occur to the clan of asuras?”

The jingling sound of heroic anklets , the booming sound of conches and
The sound of chiding in a big tone , all joined together one by one ,
And became a huge sound and became capable of stifling ,
The torrential sound of very big waves of the sea at deluge.

Those who were producing smoke due to fire of anger bending their eye brows and bows,
And breathing heavily . those who get angry with other for going ,
In front of each other by mistake ,those who could not get their way ,

And they were wandering all over the world in search of war as ,
Without fighting with any one they were having great discomfort of their shoulders.
5505.If ordered to Knock off the mountain or drink all water of ocean with tides ,
Or Push the sun so that it falls down , or extract water from clouds in the sky,

The Rakshasas were there and killed them , some he killed by going near them,
Some he killed by hitting with a tree tied with creepers and ,

Neared those Asuras who came one after other and killed them,
Killed those who were like mountain and who wanted to tie him, by tying them,
Killed those by slapping those who slapped his body.

AS well the clouds that give rise to rain retreat
And praised that great Hanuman and shouted ,
Words of encouragement whose sound was more in that war.

Several times sent various weapons by triggered by mechanical devices ,
In several billions and the wounds that were made by them ,

As well sages settled on the shoulders of Hanuman and it was difficult to make them out.
5541.Because that Valorous and great Hanuman who was the follower of Dharma ,
Ran round and round speedily like a kite and moved in all eight directions,
And also went high in to the sky as well as in to the earth,
All Rakshasas got worn out and died but that hanuman ,
Did not sweat in his body nor did he take heavy breath.
5542. Those Rakshasas fighting the great war with Hanuman were those ordered by Ravana
And sent there and were like those who had swallowed poison and we do not know,
How many of them died but know that all of them were killed and ,
There were no survivors who were not valorous and got defeated by that ,
And so there are no other soldiers , like those Rakshasas.
5543.The KInkaras who came to fight with Hanuman died in two mathra time ,
And then the chiefs of the garden went speedily and with shivering hands and legs ,
With fear pushing their neck fell on thousands of hills of bodies and became sad.
5544.They speedily went and stood in front of Ravana and with sobbing ,
Not able to tell anything by their mouth , showed all that happened there ,
By the signs made by their hands and not able to stand there,
Looked at all the four directions and shivered and the king ,
Understood the great defeat by their great sorrow.
5545.That Ravana who showed his chest due to great pride and who was ,
Spitting fire of anger from all his ten mouths asked them,
“Did all the Kinkaras sent by me for war meet their death ,
And sacrificed their souls or did they go against my order ,
And ran away from war? Or did they due to great defeat in war,
Forgot me due the great insult ? Please tell me why you have come?”
5546. Then those guards who came there told , “the very Kinkaras,
Did not become sad and run away , they did not get scared ,
And leave the battle field and like those clan of silly people ,,
Who bear false witnesses , they were destroyed by the monkey.”
5547. That Ravana who due to his anger appeared like one ,
Who is prepared to swallow all the three worlds ,
Feeling great shame looked at the divine guards of the eight directions,
Who were guarding him and shouted ,
At the guardians of seasons , Possibly you do not know what happened?”
5548.Those lords of the forests did not reply and were shivering due to fear ,
And That Ravana who was wearing garland made of several types of flowers,
As well as petals ,again asked them , “Did the cruel word that,
The monkey has killed was it seen by you or only heard by you “
5549.They said , We hid ourselves in one corner and saw it, that monkey,
Travelling in all directions by rotating himself hit with a tree ,
And killed all the Rakshasa army belonging to the great army ,
Surrounding him like the ocean of the south and still,
It has not gone away from that place .”

With folded hands in salutation and who had mountain like strong shoulders ,
Who was not scared like a serpent and told him, “you , please go ,
Along with a horse army which flashes in circles , encircle that monkey,
Stifle its strength , tie it with a rope and bring him to me,
And bring down the great anger that I have in my mind.”
5551. That Jambumali saluted Ravana and said to him, “Sir ,
In the measureless crowd of great Rakshasas , after thinking,
You ordered me “as per my words , please do this job”
And I have got great fame due to that and who else ,

He was the anger of the king of Lanka participating in war.”

With pretty conches booming, with sounds produced by the speedy ,
Rolling of wheels of chariots , With horses neighing like lauging ,
With bows and belled chains standing firmly ,
With elephants trumpeting loudly and with sound in the sky,
Masking the conversations of devas with each other .

Surrounded by sea appeared full and broken and the dust it raised ,
The ordinary shining mountains were resembling the Meru mountain,
With great luster and the old city of Lanka and other cities,
Looked like the golden city of heaven.
5559.In the army of the cruel Jambumali which surrounded his chariot ,
There were ten thousand chariots with pretty wheels , double that number ,
Of elephants , four times that number of speedily running horses,
And the foot soldiers were the double the number of those horses.

And managing the elephants with goad , were born in the clan of Niruthi,
The female guardian of south east , were with eyes which sheds fire again and again,
And were people with lustrous bodies like the Sun.

And knew the eighteen types of steps of the horses , knew about the nature ,
Of army suitable for a war and in the battle field , they went by the side of
Chariot and elephant borne soldiers and rode ,
On horses with garlands with bells and went as per their mind.

Accompanied by such type of army, making the Devas scared,
With his big eyes lighten up due to great anger , With a shining armour on his chest,
And with anger which was like the fire in the mountain proceeded in big golden chariot.
5564.Hanuman who was the emissary of Lord Rama and stood alone in that garden of luxury.
Thinking that more Rakshasas had not come to fight with him ,
Looking at the path they are likely to come and climbed up,
On the ornamental arched gate which similar to a rain bow ,
Which was surrounded by Chandra and other planets and the stars in the sky.
5565. With the well coloured big gems as well as gold removing the darkness,
In the sky , That Hanuman who stood on that arched gate which was shining ,
With rays from gems and gold , making that light shine surrounding him,
Was similar the Sun god with great light in the middle of an ocean.
5566.That greatly valorous Hanuman shouted the great war cry,
Which was similar the twang sound made by Rama on his bow
Making clouds fall down with thunder , making the sea ,
Producing great sound calm down , the serpents in the mountain holes,
Spit out their soul along with poison , with fear enter and stay in the minds of
Rakshasas who are habituated for killing others and making the devas shiver .

Lose the joy of rut , Which made God of death ruling the south taken aback,
And loose his poise , made the undamaged stars in the sky
Fall down like flowers and made earth and mountains split .
5568. At that time all the Rakshasas who had come to fight the war ,
Shouted like the tumultuous ocean with great tides ,
And due to being prevented from going further by mountain of corpses.
And due to the hot flowing blood which was hot coming near and ebbing out ,
And being knocked down by the corpses of their own relation and falling,
Were not able to go by straight path , got perplexed as to what path they should take.
5569. Jambumali from there divided in to various groups and ordered them,
To approach Hanuman from his two sides and also in his frontin a proper formation,
And then he drove his big chariot and went further and then Hanuman who was sitting on the gate ,
Seeing that whatever he wanted came before him and had joyus feeling on his victorious shoulders.

Of Lord Vishnu , who held the divine wheel and which was shining like flame of lamp,
AS his front army , With the hairs growing erect all over his body as his soldiers,
With his strong hands with sword like sharp nails as his army on both sides ,
With his divine tail as his back side army and he himself as the full army marched ahead.

Because of their anger , with their horns and conches made huge sounds ,
With their strong bows making twang sound , With Rakshasas ,
Who are experts in illusion becoming joyous and shouting roar of victory,
With very many musical instruments playing , took their weapons by their hands ,
And speedily threw them at valorous Hanuman, so that all directions would break.
5572. That Hanuman who was sitting on the curved gate using only his hands ,
And hitting and breaking the weapons thrown by the Rakshasas with black anklets ,
And made them fall in the huge ocean so that they would become useless.
Due to the crowds of bees (weapons) spread everywhere He was affected with great anger,
Which was Burning like fire , and chose and took hold of an iron staff which had fallen there.
5573. That Hanuman who was sitting on the gate got down stood erect and ,
Using the iron staff, killed in that battle field , Those who did not know him properly .
Those who had spread, those who were staying together ,
And those who were standing in that battle field.

Which had come near him and those that were thrown at him by the Rakshasas
And started fighting with his right hand and due to which ,
The elephants which had strength to kill died there ,
Many great chariots broke in to pieces and ,
The crowd of horses fell down on earth and died.

And died , some of them suffered ,some of them who were hit ,
Caught fire and broke down and became like dust.,
Some horses which rose up .got their feet folded ,
While trying to get up and they broke , and like this
Many horses fell down like the mountains whose wings were cut by Indra.
5678. Some of those soldiers seeing the prowess of Hanuman,
Got scared and wondering about him fell down ,
Some of those who fell got up and being scared ,
Lost their senses and fell down dead and those who did not die ,

Made them fall on the ground and destroyed them,
He threw some heroes with very strong bow and killed them,

5680. The brains and blood of the Rakshasas became like a boiling fluid,
And became a fearful slush and the elephants which fell in that slush,
Were swallowed by it leading to their death and Hanuman by stamping with his feet,
On the Rakshasas who were like a long big mountain destroyed them .
Along with the shoulders and the swords that they were holding.

And who were valorous ones with mountain like shoulders along with ,

Can enter , approached all chariots which were giving light from their top.

Walked over the heads of all their soldiers and killed them all.
5683.Hanuman jumped over like thunder of deluge, on the back of victory giving horses,
On the chests wearing scented garland of the enemy soldiers who were valorous,
On the shoulders decorated by gems one after another ,on the huge elephants ,
Which were raining water of rut , and destroyed all of them.
5684. At that time he was wandering and killing like a kite ,like the scepter ,
Which is stable and matchless , like the wisdom of elders who have got over,
The fate of blessed deeds and sins and like the minds of prostitutes ,
Who gave their growing breasts to all without bothering who they were
Deciding based only on the money they gave according to the amount they gave.
5585. That great Hanuman making people understand faultlessly that ,
The devotees of Lord Vishnu would attain all his greatness ,
Was visible to the eye and merged with the minds of Rakshasas,
Who were fighting with strength on the earth , sky , sides and all directions.

Along with huge chariots having flags and caught the huge mountain like elephants,
With tusks which were blaring out due to his great anger ,
By his other hand and crushed and killed them.

With a mind full of rage , those having bent and protruding long teeth ,
Those having rope as a weapon ,Those with enmity stare like fire ,
Those having the power of a pointed army and those who were ,
Having enmity , were coming like gods of death and ,
Were shouting a loud voice , kicked them with his feet and killed them.
5588.Due to being rotated by the huge tides of blood gushing out ,
From those Rakshasas, the wheels , huge iron rods , pestles , maces , spears ,
Became extra and got mixed along with chariots , horses, umbrellas and flags
As well as elephants with huge trunks and entered in to that sea.
5589.Due the throwing of a weapon of iron pillar (yezhu) by Hanuman hitting them,
The heads of the Rakshasas rose up from their bodies and some went and hit the mountains,
Which touch the sky , Some travelled towards end of directions ,
And some joined with each other and along with the heads ,
That have fallen earlier , were scattered all around like household materials.
5590 That Jambumali who was cruel like god of death , was standing alone ,
Like the fainted elephant as the other elephants have been killed ,
By an angry lion and have reached the heaven , with honey like,
Red eyes giving out sparks of fire and became very angry.
5591.Those Rakshasas who were riding , on horses with reins moving like air ,
Had died on the battle field and due to his wheels of chariot going deep,
And got caught by the slushy mud created by the blood and fat of those Asuras,
And was not able to move out from that place but he,
Who was pitiable was trying to with speed.
5592.That Hanuman who was wounded all over his body looked like,
A tree full of flowers told him, “You have only one weapon , you have only,
One chariot and you did not have strength to protect those ,
Who came to war along with you and you are standing alone.
If you fight with me now you will surely die and so,
What are you going to do b now? It is not just to kill the poor people ,
And so you can go back “said Hanuman with sense of mercy.
5593.Jambumali looked at Hanuman and told, “you mercy seems to be good,”
And he laughed uproariously making fire come out and further told,
“You possibly thought that I am one who would easily die in this war .”
And using his very strong bow as hard as diamond started sending ,
Arrows with great luster in numbers, one , ten , hundred , hundred thousand and so on.
5594. That Hanuman told him, “Just because you take a bow in your hand ,
Do you think it is easy to kill those who wander without weapons?”
And then smiled showing out his white teeth and destroyed and scattered ,
All the arrows that were coming towards him using the weapon called “Yezhu(iron pillar) ”
Like the rain drops being destroyed by wind , in all directions.
5595. That Rakshasa called Jambumali becoming extremely enraged ,
Observing that the arrows sent by him in front and back were not hurting Hanuman,
And were falling down broken , tried to reach near Hanuman in his chariot ,
And not able to do it , cut off the victorious weapon “Yezhu(iron pillar) ” ,
Of Hanuman , by his arrow which had a tip like an axe.
5596. Hanuman due to loss of “Yezhu(iron pillar)” was disturbed and started breaking ,
All the arrows sent by him by his hands and Devas who wore long garlands ,
Seeing this made tumultuous sound , and Hanuman jumped in to the chariot ,
Of Jambumali , easily caught hold of his bow which was making sound by his hand,
Folded his mouth and pulled the mountain like head of that Asura ,
By the bow and made it fall on the earth.
5597.Then Hanuman jumped out of that chariot and crushed in to pulp,
His chariot , his charioteer and the horses that were drawing it ,
Again climbed up on the tall arch and those Gods of seasons,
Whose body had dried up , getting scared witnessing the death of ,
The very huge army , fearing to tell it to Ravana,
Ran from the battle field towards the palace of Ravana with great speed.
5598.That broad , very big river of blood , took the corpses to each of their homes ,
Sio that their wives can realize that their husbands have all died,
The city of Lanka was greatly shattered and in all places,
Only sound of wailing due to sorrow was being heard ,
And the God of Dharma became joyous thinking that ,
“Due to this monkey the strength of Asuras living in Lanka has diminished.”
5599. Those Gods of seasons entered the matchless palace of Ravana ,
Who was wearing garland of Gold , stood there without telling anything,
With numbed faces as they were all scared and shivering to tell the news,
And seeing that Ravana laughed and told them , “Do not shiver” and then they said,
“Sir , All the Asuras who were ours have died and Jambumali is also o more ,
Though there was just one monkey there to fight with all of them.”
5600.AS soon as they told this That Ravana who had anger like raging fire ,
Thought about the death of Jambumali and his eyes spit out blood ,
And got up saying that , “ I would myself go and catch that monkey,
And bring him here” and hearing that his five commanders told.
