    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 10

    " There was a king called Padamaksha. One day he said to
    Lakshmi, wife of Vishnu, I wish you would be born in my family
    and become my daughter. She replied, If I be born in your family
    and I become your daughter, you will be miserable. I have however
    no objection to become your daughter, if my husband tell me
    to do so. Whereupon the king performed a severe penance to gain
    the favour of Vishnu, who was pleased with him and gave him a fruit,
    which the king took at home and kept with him. After nine months
    were over, the fruit bore a female child, the same Lakshmi.

    The king, having got a daughter, became exceedingly glad and
    named the child Padmakshi. She grew up aad became marriageable.
    Many kiags, demi-gods and Rishis requested her father to give her
    away ia marriage to them, but he refused to comply with their
    request, saying that he would marry her to a man whose body was
    dark blue. At this refusal they all got enraged and killed the king on
    the spot. Whereupon his daughter threw herself into a havan in
    which the consecrated fire was burning. At that time Ravan happened
    to look at her, and was captivated with her charms. He immediately
    extinguished the fire with a view to catch her, but she disappeared.

    He found in the havan five ratnas [precious stones; gems] which
    he gave to his wife, Mandodari. The five ratnas were placed by Ravana
    and his wife in a box and soon after, they found, to their great surprise,
    that a female child played in it with pleasure. Ravana lifted the child,
    but Mandodari said, 'If you keep this child here, the whole of Lanka
    will be set on fire. The kingdom of Padmaksha was annihilated on account
    of this child, and the poor king was killed by the kings and demi gods
    who had gone there to marry her. I, therefore, propose that the box
    should be thrown somewhere else.'

    Ravana was alarmed, and ordered his minister to bury the box in the
    kingdom of Janak, who was the bitterest enemy of the demon-king.
    The minister accordingly ordered his men to carry the box and bury it
    as directed by Ravana. The men lifted up the box, when the child said,
    ' I shall again come here and extirpate all the demons. Ravana got
    enraged and was about to kill the child, when Mandodari prevented
    him from doing so.

    The box was then carried at night and buried in the field presented by
    Janak to a Brahmin. One day while the Brahmin was ploughing his field,
    he found the box and carried it to the king. The box was opened and,
    to the great astonishment of all, a girl of the age of five years was
    found in it. As soon as the king saw her, he was moved with affection,
    and brought her up as his daughter.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 15

    Rama then, taking his leave of Kayakayi went to his mother,
    Kausalya, and told her what had happened. Kausalya became
    very sorry and said, Thou shalt not leave me. Hide thyself in
    my room for fourteen years, and I shall keep the secrecy.

     I cannot remain without thee." Rama replied, "Mother, excuse me.
    I am now bound by my promise to go to the forest." So saying
    he threw himself at her feet and obtained her permission to go
    to the forest."

    He then went to Lakshuman and told him all that had taken place,
    when the latter said, "I shall accompany you. I cannot live here
    without you, and if you leave me here alone and go to the forest,
    I shall commit suicide." Rama, having consented to take Lakshnman
    with him, went to his wife, Sita, and said, " I am going to the forest
    of the demons for fourteen years; and until I return to Ayodya,
    I ask you to live with my mother Kausalya. I cannot take you with me
    to the forest, as you are delicate and will not be able to bear hardship
    with me." " I shall follow you, " replied Sita, "and share any misfortune
    that may befall you. I, therefore, go down on my knees and implore
    you not to leave me here alone. " Whereupon Rama consulted Vashista
    and promised Sita that he would also take her with him.

    Lastly he went to take his leave of Dasharatha, when the king said
    with tears in his eyes, " I feel much for thee. The wicked and wretched
    woman has done this all, and I do not think that I shall live until tliou
    returnest to Ayodya. I shall die of grief for thee. As I cannot tell thee
    to break the promise given by thee to Kayakayi, I give thee my
    consent to go to the forest. Child, take with thee all necessary
    things and pass thy days in happiness. "

    "Father, replied Rama, "I do not want any thing. I shall dress myself
    in valkalyas [barks of a tree] and pass my days in meditation." As soon
    as Rama spoke these words, Kayakayi brought valkalyas and placed
    them before Rama, Sita and Lakshuman, who dressed themselves in
    them and set out for the forest with the minister, Sumant.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 16

    They arrived at Ganga teera, where Rama sat down for rest
    on the grass under the shade of a tree near a beautiful river
    and, having refreshed himself there, requested a fisherman
    called Guhaka, who was his devotee, to convey him with Sita
    and Lakshuman to the other side of the river. Guha asked him
    who he was, when he informed him that he was Rama,
    the eldest son of Dasharatha.

    Whereupon the fisherman, having embraced him, conveyed him
    with Sita and Lakshuman to the other side of the river, when
    Sumant took his leave of the prince and returned to Ayodya.

    Rama then went to the abode of Bharadwaj, a Rishi, who worshipped
    him and requested him to stay with him for about fifteen days,
    when the prince said, "I cannot stay with you any longer,
    because the people of Ayodya will often come here and entreat
    me to return to the kingdom. I shall, therefore, go to the Dandakaranya"
    [A forest called Dandakaranya].

    At the request of Rama, Bharadwaj showed him the way that led to t
    be hills called Chitrakuta, where many learned Rishis lived. He went
    up to the hills and saw Valmika, a Rishi, and worshipped him with
    respect and reverence. Lakshuman built a parnakutika [A small hut]
    there, and they all lived in it.

    On the return of Surnant to Ayodya Dasharatha died of grief for Rama.
    It was a pity that none of his sons was present at the time of his death.
    His wives, Kausalya and Sumitra, much mourned for the king but
    Kayakayi did not shed a tear for him. To perform the funeral ceremony
    of the king his sons, Bharat and Shatrughana, were sent for, and until
    they returned to Ayodya, his body was preserved in a Kadayi,
    [A large vessel made of iron.] full of oil.

    Soon after, Bharat and Shatrughana returned to the city ; and, having
    seen the lifeless body of their father, they violently cried and much
    lamented for him. Vashishta said, " The body of the king cannot be
    burnt,unless some one is placed on the throne of Ayodya. Rama and
    Lakshuman have gone to the forest and I, therefore, ask Bharat to
    occupy the throne, as Kayakayi has got them banished to the forest
    to secure the throne for him. "

    At this information Bharat was startled, and said to Vashishta with
    tears in his eyes, "0 !how can I bear this grief ? I do not want the
    kingdom. I want nothing from this city. I go down on my knees and
    beseech you not to install me in the throne, as my beloved Rama is a
    rightful claimant of it. I will go wherever Rama is, and pass my days
    with him."

    Having known the Having known the heart of Bh-irat Vashishta placed
    the padukas* of Rama on the throne and proclaimed him as the king
    of Ayodya. Shortly after, the body of Dasharatha was carried to the
    funeral ground, and burnt with all his wives, except Kausalya, Sumitra
    and Kayakayi. Kausalya and Sumitra were ready to burn themselves
    with their husband, but Vashishta prevented them from doing so,
    as they had sons.

    After the funeral ceremony of Dasharatha was over, Bharat went
    and saw his mother, Kayakayi, when she said, "Son! I have caused
    Rama and Lakshuman to be banished to a forest and secured the
    kingdom for you with the greatest difficulty. Now without delay
    take charge of the kingdom, and you will be very happy. We have
    now no enemies ; and it is a very good sign that the king has also
    died."

    Bharat got very much enraged at what he had heard from Kayakayi
    and replied, "You are a murderess of your husband and an enemy
    of Rama. It is most sinful, wicked and disgraceful on your part to cause
    the death of my father and the banishment of my dear brother to the
    forest. Rama is the rightful claimant of the throne, let him come and
    take his kingdom.

    I want nothing except Rama and shall pass my days with him in the
    forest." So saying he dressed himself in valkalyas and set out for
    Chitrakuta to join his brothers. He was followed by Vashista, Kausalya,
    Sumitra, Shatrughana, Sumant, and all the people of Ayodya,
    who were very anxious to see Rama. They all arrived at the river,
    where, Guha had his hut ; and at the request of Bharat the fisherman
    conveyed all the people to the other side of the river.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 17

    Lakshuman having seen the people,thought that Kayakayi had sent them
    to kill Rama and began to let off arrows at them. But Rama stopped him,
    saying that they were not his enemies. Shortly after, they all reached the
    paranakutika of Rama, when the prince embraced them very affectionately
    and asked his mother how the king was doing.

    Kausalya, overwhelmed with grief, could not utter a word, when Vashista
    broke the sad news to him. He deeply mourned for his father and remained
    mute for a while. Vashishta condoled him to perform the last ceremony
    of his father. Whereupon he went to the river, Gaya, and performed the
    ceremony.

    Kausalya, Sumitra, Vashishta, and all the people persuaded Rama to return
    to Ayoclya and take charge of the kingdom, when lie said, " I am always true
    to my promise, faithful to my wife, and of a firm resolution. I cannot, therofore,
     break the promise given by me to my mother, Kayakayi, in fulfilment of the
    promise given by my father to her and return to Ayodya under any
    circumstances."

    Bharat said, 'If you do not corne to Ayodya, I will go somewhere else and
    pass my days there until you return to the city." Rama stroking his head,
    replied, "Bharat do not be disheartened. I shall return to Ayodya in fourteen years
    and fourteen days. I, therefore, wish you to go back to the city and rule there
    on my behalf."

    Bharat said, " I am very glad to obey you, but I shall not feel there well without
    your company. I therefore, beg that you will kindly let me go to Nandigram
    and stay there for fourteen years and fourteen days." Rama replied, " If you will
    not be happy in Ayodya in my absence, I shall let you go to Nandigram."

    " But " said Bharat, "if you do not return from the forest within fourteen years
    and fourteen days, I shall commit .suicide. " Rauia, having been pleased with
    his brotherly feelings, gave him his padukas and sent him to Nandigram where
    he lived as a Joyi [an ascetic] for fourteen years and fourteen days. Rama also
    gave his padukas [wooden shoes] to Shatrughana and made him go to Ayodya
    and rule there on his behalf. Shatrughana returned to Ayodya with Kausalya,
    Sumitra, and all the people who had accompanied him.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 18

    A few days after he had left for Ayodya, the Brahmans, who lived at Chitrakuta, said,
     " Rama, your wife is very beautiful and attractive. If you stay here with us any longer,
    the demons will come here and devour us all. We are informed that the demons,
    Trishira, Khur, and Dushan, will shortly come here to carry off your Sita. We, therefore,
    request you to leave this place at once."

    Rama replied, " You need not be afraid. Let all the demons on earth come here, I shall
    kill them all and defend you. The Brahmans, having no faith in what Rama had said,
    left the hills with their wives and children. Soon after, Rama removed to the Dandakaranya ;
    and on his way to the forest, he killed a demon called Viradha.

    Viradha was a gandharv called Tumbar. One day Kuber, having called him in his presence
    to sing for him, the demi-god got tipsy and went before him. Kuber got enraged at his conduct
     and cursed him, saying that he would be a demon and would wander in the forest for
    ten thousand years but that he would be released from the curse, when he would be killed
    by the hands of Rama. As appointed, the gandharv was killed by Rama and released from
    the curse.

    Rama spent thirteen years with Sita and Lakshuman in visiting holy places. And during
    his pilgrimage he visited the abode of Atri, a Brahman, where he worshipped the three
    headed god, Datatraya. Thence he went and visited Agasti, a very powerful Rishi. The story
    of the power of the Rishi is as follows :

    " There lived three demons called Atapi, Vatapi, and Alva. They were blessed by the god,
    Siva, with the art of enchantment, by means of which they devoured the innocent
     Brahmans. Vatapi became food and Alva water. Atapi became a benefactor and invited
    every Brahman to partake of the food and water. The Brahman came; and as soon
    as he ate the food arid drank the water, Atapi cried aloud the names of Vatapi and Alva,
    who, having responded to the call of their brother, tore off the body of the Brahman
    and came out. Thus they killed every Brahman and ate his flesh.

    One day Agasti was invited by Atapi to partake of the food and water The Rishi complied
    with his invitation ; and as soon as he ate the food and drank the water, Atapi cried
    aloud as usual the names of his brothers but to his great surprise, they did not respond
    to his call, as the Rishi burnt Vatapi in his stomach. Alva, who had escaped from the belly
    of the Rishi, and his brother, Atapi, assumed different forms and began to run away,
    when the Rishi cut off the head of Atapi. Alva escaped and mixed himself with the ocean,
    when Agasti drank off the whole ocean and killed the demon."

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 19

    Rama stayed with Agasti for a month ; and during his stay there he presented
    him with an arrow to kill Ravana. From the Dandakaranya Rama set out for
    Panchavati. On the road he saw a huge bird called Jatayu, who asked Rama
    who he was. " I belong to the solar race," replied Rama," and am son of the king,
    Dasharatha. I am called Rama." " I am son of Kasha," said Jatayu, " and the name
    of my uncle is Suparna, and I am called Jatayu. Your father was my great friend.
    I helped him during the battle which he had fought with Shukra and, therefore,
    he called me his brother."

    Having embraced Jatayu, Rama proceeded on his journey and reached Panchawati,
    where he lived with Sita in a parnakutika built by Lakshuman. Lakshuman gathered
    fruits and kandamuls for Sita and Rama, which they ate and passed their days there.
    He guarded the hut every night for fear of the demons and he himself remained
    without food.

    One day Lakshuman went near a thicket to collect fruits and kandamuls[Esculent roots],
    where he saw a deadly sword descending from above. The weapon fell where he was
    standing; and it having looked sharp and powerful, he tried it on the thicket, but,
    to his great astonishment,the thicket was cut into two parts, and there flowed a large
    quantity of blood. Lakshuman was afraid that he killed some ascetic, while meditating
    in the thicket; and in order to satisfy himself about it he immediately
    went to Rama with the khadag and informed him of what had happened.

    Rama said, " Brother, do not be afraid. The blood which flows through the thicket is
    of a demon called Shabari. This demon is the son of Surpanakha, a sister of Ravana.
    He was meditating in the thicket unobserved with a view to get the weapon from Siva.
    The god had sent the weapon for him. If the weapon had gone to the hands of the
    demon, he would have annihilated the whole of the universe with it. Thank God that
    you have got it; and I tell you to take a particular care of it." Lakshuman was glad at
    this information and cheerfully attended to his duties.

    On the day Shabari was killed by Lakshuman, Surpanakha found in her dream that
    some calamity had be fallen her son; and having been awakened, she, accompanied
    by four demonesses, immediately started for the forest to look for her son. She wandered
     in the forest and at last came to the thicket ; and seeing the blood there she searched
    the whole wood and at last found that her son was cut into two pieces. As soon as she
    saw her son, she fainted and cried violently for him. The other four demonesses condoled
    with her ; and immediately after, they burnt the body of Shabari and went in search of
    the enemy who had killed the demon.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 20

    They traced Lakshuman from his foot-prints ; and in order to revenge the killing
    of her son, Surpanakha formed herself into a beautiful damsel ; and taking with
    her the four demonesses, who had also formed themselves into very good
    maid-servants, she went to Lakshuman.

    She said, " I have travelled all over the earth in search of a husband ; but I have
    not found a young man as beautiful as yourself. I have become mad after you,
    and unless you consent to marry me, I shall not live. 1, therefore, implore you
    to take me for your wife. Do not you see how I look ? Can you get elsewhere a
    quite young girl like me ?"

    Lakshuman was not at all captivated with her charms, but she having much insisted
    upon his giving her an answer, he replied, * I have got my brother and sister-in-law.
    There they live in a hut. I cannot do any thing without their consent." " I shall go to
    your brother," said the demoness, 'and get a letter from him consenting to our match'

    So saying she went to Panchawati with her maid-servants and said to Rama, " I like
    your brother from the bottom of my heart. I have made up my mind to marry him,
    and he has also promised me to take me for his wife subject to your approval of the
    match. I, therefore, pray that you will kindly pity me and give me your letter or
    any other sign signifying your consent to our marriage." Sita was moved with her
    manner of address, and requested Rama to comply with her request.

    Rama surveyed her from head to foot ; and finding her eye- balls upside down,
    he knew that she was Surpanakha in the form of a human being. Rama, therefore,
    said, " I have no objection to give you my consent but I shall write it on your back."
     " How can you do it," replied she, " I feel bashful to show you my back." "It does not
    matter, continued Rama. " There is no one here." At last Surpanakha told Rama to
    write his consent on her back, which the latter wrote and sent her away.

    The demoness hastened to the place where Lakshuman was standing and said,
     " You see, your brother has consented to our marriage with much pleasure. If you like,
    you may go and ask him about it. I am not a liar, you know. He has given me no letter
    or any sign but he has simply told you to marry me."

    " That will -not do," replied Lakshuman, " I must have a letter or sign from my brother
    signifying his consent to our marriage." Surpanakha, having known his mind, showed
    the letter written by Rama on her back.

    The letter stated that 'as soon as Lakshuman read it, he should at once cut off the
    nose and ears of the demoness.' Lakshuman read the letter and having seized her
    by her hair, flung her down and cut off her nose and ears as directed by Rama .
    When her nose and ears were thus cut off, she and her maid-servants as sumed
    their original forms and fled for fear of losing their lives, screaming hideously.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 21

    Listening to her yells Trishira , Khur and Dushan came to help her witn
    fourteen thousand demons. " Look at my nose and ears," she said to them,
    " There live three human beings, two males and one female. The man,
    who called himself Lakshuman, has disfigured me at the instigation of his
    brother and sister-in-law. You must now go there and cut off their heads
    and guts, so that I may drink their blood and refresh myself with it.

    Trishira, Khur and Dushan, having thought it below their dignity to go and
    fight with those human beings, selected fourteen powerful demons and sent
    them to Panchawati with Surpanakha, but Rama cut off their heads with one
    arrow. Surpanakha fled in alarm and informed Trishira, Khur and Dushan of
    what had happened. Whereupon they marched against Rama with an army of
    demons but they were also killed by the prince with his arrow in a moment.

    Surpanakha fled to Lanka in consternation and, showing her nose and ears to
    her brother, Ravana, informed him that Trishira, Khur and Dushan had been
    killed by Rama with fourteen thousand demons.

    Ravana was greatly alarmed at the sad news and, having called upon his uncle,
    Maricha, said to him, " You see, Rama has killed Trishira, Khur and Dushan and
    disfigured Surpanakha. If this enemy is allowed to go unnoticed, he will even kill
    me one day or other. I have, therefore, made up my mind to carry off Sita, his wife,
    to Lanka and kill Rama and Lakshuman. Please, therefore, be a beautiful haran*
    and frolic at the paranakutika of Rama ; and when he comes with his dhanushaban f
     to kill you, rim to the heart of the forest. Rama will pursue you ; and as soon as
    he is separated from Sita, I shall carry her off to Lanka."

    "It is sinful to covet one s wife," replied Maricha," and if you carry her off, you will
    lose your life and everything. I, therefore, advise you to change your mind and
    attend to your affairs."

    At this advice Ravana got enraged and said, " It is a bad thing to advise me that way.
    It is your duty to help me on such occasions. I, therefore, command you to come
    with me and do what I tell you to do."

    Whereupon Maricha accompanied Ravana to Panchawati with the
    greatest reluctance.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 22

    On their arrival there, Ravana stood behind a thicket near the abode of Rama,
    and his uncle, forming himself into a stag, played tricks in front of it. Sita saw
    the stag and said to Rama," Dearest, look at that stag. What a beautiful creature it is.

    I wish I would get its skin for my waistcoat. Please take this dhanushaban
    [bow&arrow]and kill it for me, so that I may have its skin for my waistcoat.
    To comply with the wishes of his wife Rama took up his dhanushaban and aimed
    at the stag. The animal began to run, and Rama went after it.

    When he went far off from the paranakutika, Ravana who was standing behind
    the thicket unobserved, imitated the voice of Rama and cried out with a view
     to separate Lakshuman from Sita, " Lakshuman help me. Lakshuman help me.
    I am in distress. * Sita heard this voice and said to Lakshuman in alarm, ^Rama
     is in distress. I have just heard him cry out for help." " You need not be afraid,"
    said Lakshuman. " None can hurt Rama. I am sure some demon has done the mischief
    with some bad motive." " Is this your affection towards your brother?" exclaimed Sita.

    " While Rama is actually in distress, you refuse to help him. Me thinks you wish
    your brother s death and marry me after him." At this accusation Lakshuman shed
    tears and, having drawn a line around the parnakutika with his dhanushaban, said
     to her, " I am now going to help Rama. Look at this line. I beg you not to go behind it,
    and if you go, you will be in distress." So saying Lakshuman left the parnakutika with
    his dhanushaban. When he went far off, Ravana disguised himself as a Fakir,[Mendicant],
    peeped at Sita through the door of the hut and cried out in a plaintive tone,
    " Is there anybody in? I am a fakir here and dying of hunger.

    It will be a great meritorious act, if some one comes out and gives me something
    to eat." Sita, who was full of kindness, came out and said, " Please sit down there.
    Rama will be presently here; and as soon as he comes, he will attend to your wants.
    " I shall not live until Rama comes here. If you now give me something to eat,
    I shall bless you." So saying he threw himself on the ground and pretended to be
    worse. Sita was alarmed and left the line to give him succor, when Ravana
     immediately caught hold of her and said, " Do not be alarmed.

    I am Ravana, the king of Lanka. I am now going to take you to my

    kingdom-. Quietly follow me." Sita rolled on the ground and violently cried,
    imploring him to leave her where she was. Her tears andentreaties did not move
    him in the least. He seated her in a chariot and set out for Lanka.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 23

    Sita all the time cried aloud the name of Rama, which Jatayu [a huge eagle; bird]
    heard and went to her rescuse. " Ravana," said Jatayu, " I command you to set Sita
    at liberty; and if you disobey me, I shall instantly kill you." " Who art thou," replied
    Ravana. " What thou hast to do with this lady ? Thou fool. Go and mind thy business."
    Jatayu insisted and Ravana let off arrows at him.

    The bird cut off with his bill all the arrows of the demon-king, broke the head of
    his charioteer and killed his horses. Ravana alighted, when the bird pounced upon
    him and pulled off his hair. He was alarmed and stood there bewildered, not knowing
    what to do. The bird broke his chariot, when the demon-king said, " Speak the truth.
    Just tell me how you will die. I shall also tell you how I shall die." Jatayu, who was
    a simpleton, replied " If you pull off my wings, I shall die instantly."

     " Now just tell me, continued Jatayu, " how you will die." " If you break my toes,"
    said Ravana, I shall die in no time." As soon as this secret was disclosed by Jatayu,
    Ravana went to catch him. The bird broke one of the toes of his enemy, when the
    latter pulled off his wings.

     Jatayu, saturated with blood, fell there rolling; and the demon-king, taking Sita on
    his shoulders, proceeded towards Lanka. When he reached the hills, called Matang,
    five powerful monkeys, Sugriva, Nala, Nila, Jambuvant and Maruti, who lived there,
    found the ornaments thrown by Sita on the ground. Looking at the ornaments Maruti
    said, "Pity, some wicked demon must have been carrying off a poor woman. I shall
    kill the demon and rescue her. So saying he jumped in the sky but, in the meantime,
    Ravana entered Lanka with his prize and despatched eighteen huge demons to search
    and kill Rama.

     A few days after his return to Lanka the demon-king said to Sita, " I beseech you to
    marry me. I am very powerful and have made all the gods my slaves. There is not a
    single soul on earith who can equal me in wealth, strength and valour. If you be my wife,
    you will be very happy." "Thou art wicked and a villain," replied Sita. " Thou wilt soon die.
    I shall never be thy wife. I loathe thee. Begone, thou fool.

     Having heard these words of Sita, Ravana said to himself, " Sita is very much excited;
    and unless she becomes calm, I shall not be able to win her heart." So saying to himself
    he placed her in the Asoka forest and posted five crores of demonesses with his sister,.
    Trijata, at their head to watch her there with instructions to frighten her and make her
    marry him at any rate.

    The demonesses often showed their teeth and opened their hideous mouths as if they
    were going to devour her, but Sita was calm and did not heed them. Trijata, who was
    kind, encouraged her and told her not to frighten herself.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 24

    Lakshuman joined Rama in the forest and informed him of what had passed
    between Sita and himself. Lakshuman wept and Rama pacified him. They then
    returned to panchawati ; and finding that Sita was not in the parnakutika, they
    were alarmed and went in search of her. They could not find her. They then went
    to the Rishi, Agasti, who informed them that Sita was carried off by Ravana.
    They returned to their abode and saw the footprints of the demon and Sita.

    They immediately set out in search of Sita in the forest. On the road they met Jatayu,
    who informed them of what had happened. " I," said Jatayu, mustered up all my strength
    and courage to rescue her from the wicked demon, but as soon as he cunningly knew
    my secret, he pulled off my wings and left me here in a dying state." So saying Jatayu
    breathed his last. Rama grieved for him and performed the funeral ceremony of his death .
     The princes proceeded on their journey.

    On the road Parwati, the wife of Siva, took the form of Sita and stood before him;
    but he did not receive her, as he knew that she was Parwati. A little further on, a huge
    demon called Kaband, stretching his arms for some eighteen yojans [A yojan measures
    nine miles] and with his head separated from his trunk, sat in the forest. Rama having
    found that he was a demon, cut off his arms and killed the monster on the spot. Kaband
    was the son of Kashyapa, a Rishi. One day he got drunk and frightened another Rishi,
    Stulashira, who cursed him, saying that he would be a demon but that he would be
    released from the curse when Rama would kill him.

    As soon as he was killed by Rama, he assumed his original form and stood before him.
    He said that his head was separated by Indra from his body with his vajra [A [thunder]weapon],
    as he was performing a severe penance to enable him to take the kingdom of the god. On the
    road Rama killed the eighteen demons whom Ravana had sent, and came to the Pampa sarovar
    [ A river] where Rama and and Lakshuman sat down for rest under the shade of a banian tree.

    From the hills, called Rishimukha, the five monkeys saw them. Sugriva was afraid and said,
    " I think, Vali, my brother, has sent those two warriors to kill me. So saying he was to flee,
    when Maruti said, " Do not be afraid. I will ascertain who those warriors are. So saying Maruti
    jumped upon the tree and, having plucked off the branches of it, threw them at Rama. Rama
    cut them off with his dhanushabans. Maruti then threw large stones and mountains at him
    but he broke them in a minute, and hurted the monkey in tho air. His father, the wind,
    supported him, while he was falling down, and bade him worship Rama. He came down and,
    having thrown him self at the feet of the prince, implored his pardon, which was
    readily granted by him.

     He became a great devotee of Rama ; and one day while he was shampooing the feet of
    the prince he said to him, " I shall be very glad to introduce you to Sugriva, brother of the
    king of this place, if you promise me that you will protect him." "Just tell me who that
    Sugriva is," replied Rama. Whereupon Maruti related the story of the life of Sugriva,

    which is as follows : ...to be continued....

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 25

    One day while Bramhadev was performing a penance, a drop of his tears fell
    on his hand ; and it bore a king, called Raksharaj. He was a monkey. While
    he was going from forest to forest, he came to a river in Kayalasa, the kingdom
    of Siva. He bathed in the river ; but immediately after, he became a very beautiful
    female. It was appointed by Parwati, wife of Siva, that any man, who would bathe
    in the river, would be a female. Indra and the Sun were enamoured of the woman.
     
    By Indra she got Vali, and Sugriva by the sun. Having heard that Kaksharaj became
    a female. Brahmadev came to the river, and prayed to Parwati to restore his son
    to his former form. Parwati listened to his prayer and made Raksharaj a man again.
    The god then created a country called Kiskinda and gave it to him. Raksharaj ruled
    in the country for some time and, having placed his eldest son, Vali, on the throne,
    proceeded to heaven.
     
     Vali and Sugriva lived together and loved each other. Vali was very powerful and
    invincible, as he was presented by Indra with Vijayamala. [A garland which, if put
    round the neck of a warrior, always gives him success in a war.] After some time
    both the brothers became mortal enemies, and Vali carried off his beautiful wife,
    Ruma. For fear of his brother, Sugriva made his abode on the hills called
    Rishyamukha Parvat. They both fought together every six months." Rama bade
    Maruti tell Sugriva that he would kill Vali and restore his wife to him. Maruti immediately
    went to Sugriva and said to him, " You are in grief for your wife, so also Rama for
    his wife, Sita.
     
    Rama has promised to help you in recovering your wife and you will have to help
    him also in recovering his wife, Sita." Sugriva was glad at what Maruti had told him
    and set out with his army of monkeys to see Rama. On his arrival the prince cordially
    received Sugriva and told him all about Sita. Sugriva said that yesterday he heard
    screams of a woman and showed the ornaments found by the monkeys to Rama.
     
    The prince identified the ornaments as belonging to his wife and shed tears, when
    Sugriva said, " Do not be afraid. I shall help you with my able ministers, Nala, Nila
    and Jambuvant in recovering Sita from Ravana. Let us kill Vali first and then we shall
    sot out in search of Sita." As soon as Sugriva spoke these words, Rama assumed his
    arrow, when the former stopped him and said, Vali is my mortal enemy and will fight
    with us to his last gap.
     
    Whereupon Rama asked him the cause of the enmity with his brother and
    Sugriva started narrating:

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 26

    Dudhumbi, son of the demon, Maishasur," continued Sugriva, " was very powerful,
    and oppressed the gods in heaven and the people on earth. Nobody could fight
    with him. At last the demon went to Yama and challenged him to fight with him.
    Yama said, "I cannot fight with you. I, therefore, tell you to go to Vali at Kiskinda
    and he will fight with you to your satisfaction.*
     
    The demon immediately came to Kiskinda and challenged Vali to fight with him,
    when the latter killed the former and hurled his body in the air which fell on the
    hills called Rishyamukha Parwat. All the Rishis on the hills were killed by the weight
    of the corpse, when a Rishi called Matang cursed Vali, saying that if the latter
    touched the hills, he would in stantly die. Mayasur, son of Dudhumbi, came to
    avenge the death of his father but he fled to patal through a cave, when Vali gave
    him blows. Vali pursued him, having posted me at the mouth of it.
     
    For many months he did not return, though I was at the cave all the time watching it.
    During this time demi-gods entered Kiskinda and sought to take possession of it.
    I, therefore, placed a mountain at the mouth of the cave and drove all the demi-gods
    from the kingdom. Vali did not return to Kiskinda for twenty months, and from this fact
    all concluded that he was no more. Whereupon the people of Kiskinda proclaimed me
    as their king against my wishes.
     
     In the meantime, Vali returned to the cave with the head of Mayasur and, having seen
    the mouth of it blocked up, he was alarmed on account of me. He immediately reireived
    the mountain and directly came to Kiskinda. As soon as he saw me on the throne,
    he, boiled with rage, said," You blocked up the mouth of the cave with a view to kill me
    and take my kingdom. So saying he attacked me. But, with the assistance of Nala, Nila,
    Jambuvant and Maruti I escaped and made my abode on these hills, because he would
    not come here for fear of the curse." Sugriva then showed the body of Dudhumbi to Rama,
    who flung it at a distance with his toe. "Now do one thing," said Rama, Just go and challenge
    Vali to fight with you." Sugriva accordingly went to Kiskinda and challenged him to fight
    with him, when Tara said to her husband, " I implore you not to meet Sugriva today.
     
    He comes to fight with you every six months but he has now come to combat with you
    three days after the battle you have fought with him. I think, Kama and Lakslminan have
    promised to help him. I, therefore, pray that you will not go to fight with Sugriva today."
    "That will not do" replied vali, " I must fight with him and cut off his head. If I am killed in
    the fight, Angada will protect you." So saying Vali went and attacked Sugriva, when
    Rama killed the former with one arrow.
     
    Tara, his wife, violently cried for her husband, when Rama consoled her and advised her
    to marry Sugriva. At first she hesitated; but soon after, she married him. Sugriva began
    to rule and forgot all about Rama in his luxury.[with his two wives, Tara and Ruma].

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 27

    Rama sent Lakshuman to Kiskinda. Marati said to Sugriva, " It is a bad thing that
    you have forgot Rama and left him alone in the forest. There stands Lakshuman
    at the door of your palace. Take care he will kill us all." Sugriva was alarmed and,
    having thrown himself at his feet with his wives and other monkeys, implored
    the pardon of Rama.

    He then came with all his monkeys to Rama to help him in recovering his wife, Sita.
    Rama put his ring on one of the fingers of Maruti as a mark from him. All the monkeys
    set out in search of Sita. On their way they came across a forest and could not proceed
    further, as they were bewildered there. This forest was cursed by a Rishi, called Dandaka,
    saying that those who entered it,would remain there bewildered. The Rishi cursed the forest,
    because his infant son, was devoured by the goddess of the forest. The infant son became
    a demon and devoured all the persons and creatures that went into the forest.
     
    Angada, son of Vali, killed the demon; and as soon as he was killed, he was restored to
    his former form. All the monkeys escaped unhurt, as they were repeating the name of
    Rama all the time in the forest. They left the forest and, having searched Sita at several
    places in vain, at last came to a very large cave. The monkeys entered the cave but
    they all fainted owing to suffocation. Maruti lifted them up with his tail and came out of
    the cave to a place where there was a beautiful garden.
     
    All the monkeys climbed up the trees in the garden, laden with fruits, but they could not
    get a single fruit to eat. A mare, called Suprabha, came where the monkeys were standing.
    Maruti asked her who had created the garden The mare replied, " Brahmadev was pleased
    with Mayasur, a demon, and, having created the cave for him,said,"I have created this
    cave for you. I require you to be always in it and not to leave it under any circumstances;
    and if you coine out of the cave, you will instantly die". While in the cave the demon always
    prayed to Vishnu for the protection of the demons on earth. Indra was alarmed and implored
    Bramhadev to get the demon oat of the cave.
     
    To get him out of the care the god created a very beautiful damsel called Hema and sent
    her m the cave. The demon looked at her and was captivated with her charms. Finding that
    the demon was very much taken with her, she came out of the cave, and he followed her,
    forgetting what Bramhadev had told him. As soon as he came out oT the cave, he instantly died.
     
     After the death of the demon, Hema was in the possession of the cave and garden, and soon
    left for the kingdom of Vishnu, placing me here in this form to watch it. Hema told me that
    when monkeys would come into this garden, I would be restored to my former form." said
    Suprabha. Maruti said to her, " We have eaten fruits to our hearts content and "we must now
    leave this place as soon as possible. We cannot see the way to the cave through which
    we have come here.
     
    Will you, therefore, be kind enough to show it to us ?" Whereupon Suprabha told all the
    monkeys to shut their eyes; and in a second they were all on a seashore. She was
    restored to her former form and, visiting Rama, went to her husband.

    SRI RAM VIJAYAM - CHAPTER 28

    The monkeys were very anxious to cross the sea and go to Lanka, but they were
    unable to do so. However, Maruti, repeating the name of Rama, crossed the sea;
    but on the way he met with several accidents. The gods [in order to test his valour],
    sent a huge woman to devour him. She opened her mouth and stood in his way.
    He passed through her mouth and proceeded further. In the meantime,
    the sea sent a mountain to block up his way.
     
    The mountain said to him, " Good creature ! Why are you not going to take rest
    on my bosom ?" At these words Maruti got enraged and pressed down the mountain.
    A little further on, a frightful demoness, Simhika, who was mother of Rahu and Ketu,
    swallowed him up; but he tore off her belly and came out. At last he arrived at
    upper Lanka, when the goddess of the place caught hold of his legs and knocked
    him down. He got up and gave her mortal blows, when she implored him to spare
    her life. He having granted her request, she blessed him, saying that he would be
    successful in his undertaking. He then came to lower Lanka, called Pudalanka.
     
     Krocha, the youngest sister of Havana, whose husband, Gargar, was killed by Indra,
     lived there. As soon as she was informed of his arrival there, she went with a number
    of demons and demonesses to catch him, when he became a small and beautiful
    animal. Krccha said to the demons and demonesses, " This is a very good and pretty
    animal. Let me have it for my breakfast, Just kill it and cook it for ine." " My body,
    replied he, " is full of water, and if you order me to be cooked for your breakfast,
    you will get nothing. I, therefore, tell you to swallow me up, so that you may have a
    delicious taste." Krocha accordingly swallowed up Maruti, who entered her heart and
    pulled off her flesh.
     
    The demoness tossed about with pain. Her companions gave her medicine mixed with
    the clung of a hog, but the monkey was so disgusted with the dirt that he let out his
    tail through her nose and eats. All the demons and demonesses believed that the tail
    was a disease, and began to pull it out, when Maruti, having torn off her belly, came out
    and threw all the demons and demonesses into the sea. From lower Lanka he went again
    to upper Lanka; and at sunset he entered Nikumbala, a county in Lankn, where Indrajit
    the eldest son of Ravana, lived with his family.
     
    He went into the palace of the demon- prince and saw him with his beautiful wife, Sulochana,
    there. Maruti said to him self, " No doubt this is Sita, and she has fallen in love with this
    wicked demon. So saying to himself he was about to kill both of them.
     
     But in the meantime, she said to her husband, " Just think for a moment. Is it not a
    bad thing that your father has unjustly brought Sita here? If she is not restored to her husband,
    a great calamity will befall him." Having heard this conversation, Maruti was convinced
    that she was not Sita.
