P.R.Ramachander

(The fort of city of Lanka is surrounded by   the monkey army .   Instead of fighting from within the fore Ravana decides    to come out and fight. Initially he is defeated. Indrajit  kills    all of them by sending Nagasthra. Garuda   comes and wakes them all up.   Then he wakes up Kumbhakarna ,  who advises him to surrender . When Ravana gets angry , Kumbhakarna goes to fight    and is killed. Sage Narada   prays Lord Rama. Athikaya another great son of Ravana is also killed with his army . Indrajit    does Homa   in Nikumbila and again kills all   the army and men except Vibheeshana, Hanuman  and Jambhavan, Hanuman goes to bring Mruthasanjivini. Kalanemi an uncle of Ravana is sent to prevent him. But Hanuman kills him  and brings the medicine.  Rama and the entire army wake up. Indrajit comes for a war and is killed. Ravana   himself comes for a war  and after   a great battle he is killed. Rama then anoints Vibheeshana as king of Lanka)


6.13 Yudharambham

The starting of the war
Vanara senayum  kandakame  ,
Bahumanavum  kai kondirikkum dasanthare ,
Yudhathinnai   rajani chara veerare ,
SAthwaram   thathra   varuthi  vazhum vidhou  ,
Ravanane kandu  kopichu  Raghava ,
DEvanum  Soumithriyodu  vil vanginaan.
Pathu kireedavum  kaikal irupathum,
Vruthranodatha   sareeravum  souryavum,
Pathu kireedangalum kudayum,
NImishardhena  khandicha   nerathu Ravanan,
Nanichu  thazetharangi  bhayam kondu,
Banathe  nokki nkokki  charicheedinaan.

When after  seeing the monkey army ,
They were  developing    respect for   it  ,
And when   the  Rakshasa   army  ,
Was getting prepared  for the war  ,
And were    marching forward  ,
The God Rama  got angry on seeing   Ravana,
And took his bow    from Lakshmana ,
Seeing Ravana with ten crowns , with twenty legs and hands,
With a body like Indra , with great valour,
Rama cut off his ten umbrellas  and   ten crowns,
By half  a minute and at that   time ,
Ravana was ashamed, got down because of fear  ,
And was walking carefully looking for  more arrows.

Mukhya Prahastha   pramuka pravaranmaar ,
Okkave   vannu thozhuthor anantharam,
“Yudham yethiduvin   kottayil , kottayil pukku,
Adachu athyantha bheethyaa  vasikkayil athra  naam”
Bheri  mrudanga dakka  pana vanaka ,
Daruna  go mukhadhyangal  Vadhyangalum,

Yudha sannadharai yudha  budhiyodu ,
Abdhikal adhrikal oorviyum thal Kshanam,
Udhathamayithu sathyalokatholam.

After  the important chiefs   like  ,
Prahastha   and others   saluted   and went  ,
“Go for war , we will  not  live locked  inside ,
The  fort   because,    we  are  afraid,.”
With Instruments like  Bheri , Mrudanga, Dakka ,
Panava, big drums ,  Gomukha,  riding in vehicles like  ,
Elephant , horses, camels, donkeys , lions,
Tigers  , bison , chariots armed   with,
Sword, trident , bow, spear , stick ,
Iron nailed mace  and Vel,
Without any fear  and with pride ,
And fully prepared for war and with great expectations ,
They came out and   the ocean  , mountains   and earth shook,
And rose   up to   the  land  of Brahma.

Vajrahasthasayil pukkan  Prahasthanum,
Vajra damshtran  thadha   Dakshina dhikkilum,
Duschyavanariyaam Meghanadhan thadhaa ,
Paschima gopura dwari  pukkedinaan,
Mithra vargam amathya   bruthya janathodum,
Uthradwari   pukkaan   Dasavakthranum,

Prahastha came out  from  the eastern gate  ,
Vajra Damshtra on the   southern gate  ,
The enemy   of Indra , Meghanadha,
Came out of     the western gate  and  along .
With friends , ministers and servants  ,
The ten necked  one entered  the northern gate.

Neelanum senayum  Poorva diggopare  ,
Bali thanayanum    Dakshina   Gopure  ,
Vayu thanayanum   Paschima   Gopure ,
Maya maanusha namaadhi  Narayanan,
Mithra thanaya  Soumithri  Vibheeshanan,
Mithra samyukthanai Uthara   dikhilum,
Itham urappichu  Raghava   Ravana  ,
Yudham pravruthamai vannu vichithramai

Neela and army were at the eastern tower,
Angadha the   son of Bali in the southern tower,
Hanuman the son of wind god in the western tower,
The Narayana   who is  the  man of illusion,
Sugreeva, the son of Sun,  Lakshmana , Vibheeshana ,
Along with their friends  were  on the northern side  ,
And thus  the war between Rama and Ravana,
Started  in a wonderful  manner.

Thousand crores and great crores ,
One thousand billions  , one thousand Sankha  ,
One thousand Pushpa, one thousand  Kalpa,
One thousand lakhs, one   thousand dandas,
One thousand Dhooli, one thousand thousands  ,
Like   the water   at the time   of deluge,
Were   the strength  of monkey army  mixed with numbers,
And they surrounded   the city of Lanka speedily  .

Potti chertha paashanangale kondum,

With stones which were   broken out  ,
With  fists , with iron  pestles  ,
With    trees  and with mountains  ,
They started   breaking the entire  city of Lanka,
After breaking   the fort walls and moats  ,
They crowded    shouted  and when they were  nearing,
Like rain ,   arrows were showered at them,
With swords   they were  split into pieces,
Those Rakshasas   also killed .
With arrows, arms  , wheels,  Shakthis ,
With arrows with crescent shaped   ends  ,
Swords  , tridents , spears , Pointed spears,
With rows  of  horned maces , slings,
With steel  instruments , with iron fists,
With  fire arms shining  like Sun,
And with powerful Vajra   arms.

Karunardhra budhyaa  koduthaan abhayam druvam.

When the ten headed one became sad because 
Of the power of the war  
To know   aboutInside facts  of Rama  and his army  
He sent Sardhhoola   and other  Rakshasas,
And they went at night    in the form of monkeys,
But the monkey chiefs found them out  and ,
When they started beating   them which became severe,
These  Rakshasas   started   crying  in pain,
Hearing which  Rama  with  mercy,
Granted  them protection   speedily.

Chennavarum  Sukra saranare ppole  ,
Chonnathu kettu   vishadhena Ravanan,

SAthyam yennorthu vilapichu mohichu ,
Mugdhangi  veenu kidakkum Dasanthare ,
Vannoru dhoothan   viravodu   Ravanan,
Thanneyum  kondu ponnedinaan anneram.

Those people   who returned , told  like Sukha   and Charana,
And hearing that   Ravana   became worried ,
And with chants   along with Vidyujjihwa,
That Ravana went to the place  where Sita was there,
And kept  something  before Sita and  told her,
This is the head of Rama and this is his bow,
And also told that  he killed  him in war,
And seeing those   magical things ,
Sita thought   that  it was the truth ,
Cried   and swooned    and fell there ,
And at that time  one  emissary   came  ,
And speedily took Ravana   with him.

Vaidehi thannodu chonnal Saramayum,
“khedam asesham   akale  kalaga  nee ,

Ingilloru samsayam Kalyana  devathe,
Vallabhan  kollum Dasayane  nirnayam,
Itham  Sarama sarasa  vakhyam kettu,
Chitham thelinju iruneedinaal Sitayum.

Sarasa *  told   Lady Sita  ,
“You throw  out this sorrow at a distance ,
Understand that all this is but  cheating ,
And more of such things  will come in another four days,
And there is no doubt about it , auspicious goddess,
Your  husband would kill Ravana   definitely  ,
And hearing these soft   words  of Sarasa ,
The mind of Sita    was cleared of doubts.
                     *Wife of Vibheeshana

Mangala   devathaa vallabha aagna vasaal  ,
Angadhan  Ravanan thannodu  chollinaan,
“Onnukil Sitaye   kondu vannu yennude,

SAmharicheeduvan Banam yeythu ,
Yennulla   Simha nadham kettathille bHavan,
Nanam  ninakethum illayo manase  ,

As per the orders  of the auspicious Rama ,
Angadha met   Ravana   and told him,
“Either   bring Sita  and place her before me ,
Or start for   a war   with me   or ,
Becoming afraid close   yourself in the city ,
And in such a case  I would  be  using my arrows,
Kill the Rakshasa  army , destroy city of Lanka,
Along with   you , the king of Rakshasas,
Have you not heard the   roar of a lion ,
Do you not have  any sense of shame  in your mind.”

Itham adhikshepa   vakkukal  kettu athi,

Pinne aprasadavum  thakartheedinaan,
Onnu  kuthichanguyarnnu  vegena poi,
Mannavan thanne thozhuthu  vruthanthangal ,
Onnozhiyathe  unarthinaan   Angadhan.

Hearing these   very insulting words ,
The Rakshasa  hero who became   very  angry,
Ordered   to the chief    Rakshasas to ,
Kill the son of the son of  the enemy of Vruthra  ,
And those Rakshasa      soldiers went and caught  Angadha,
And he killed all of them  and threw   them in the air,
And later breaking that palace , he jumped up  ,
And speedily   went to the king Rama , saluted  him,
And told   all that happened in great  detail.

Pinne  Ssushenan , Kumudhan  , Nalan ,  Gajan,
Dhanyan, Gavayan  , Gavakshan , Maruthsuthan,

Then Sushena  , Kumudha , Nala , Gaja ,
Dhanya  , Gavaya  , Gavesha, Hanuman,
And other heroes like them ,
Surrounded    and  started filling up the moat ,
And  when they were  carrying   stones ,
Mountains   and trees and approaching  ,
With bows and arrows,  swords  and shields ,
White shining axe   creating fear  for life,
With sticks  , pestles  maces  , slings  ,
Horned maces, wheels ,  spears ,
Saws and many other weapons  ,
They  came to attack them.

The sound raised by elephants ,  that of horses,
The sound of chariots  , the sound of twanging   the bow,
The  sound raised  by Rakshasas, the sound of lions,
And the very pointed   sound of monkeys  ,
Crowded , blared    and  echoed  in the world  ,
And was  being heard every where  .

Indra, devas  , Kinnaras , KImpurushas,
Groups of  snakes  , Gandharwas , Sidhas ,
Vidhyadharas , charanas  who  normally ,
Travel in the sky   and saints such as  Narada  ,
To  see  the very fierce  battle  along with their ladies  ,
Came riding   on air planes and filled   the   sky.

The  great  Indrajith at   that  time  ,
Fought   with Angadha    and that  king of monkeys,
Killed his charioteer  and powdered  his chariot,
And Meghanadha got in to another    Chariot,
The very bold Rakshasa  called Jambumali,
Wounded   Hanuman with his  spear,
And Hanuman  broke his chariot ,
And along with his charioteer  killed him.

Sugreeva   fought with   Prahastha  ,
The valorous Vibheeshana fought with MIthrari,
Neela    fought with Nikumbha  and thapana  ,
Was sent to place of death  by  Mahagaja,
Lakshmana   fought with  Viroopaksha  ,
And Rakshadwaja   and Agni Dwaja  ,
Fought with  the greatest  of Raghu clan,
Who was  the consort  of Lakshmi,
And they were  sent to  death.

At that time  when victory was coming to the monkeys,
The Sun    went   down in the ocean,
And Indrajit who was   defeated   by Angadha  ,
Grand son Of  Indra
Suddenly  became invisible in the sky  and  ,
By sending Nagasthra   he  put in to swoon,
Rama   as well  as all the monkeys,
And he claimed  that  he has   won over  the men,
As well as all the monkeys  who have come  to fight ,
And he made   his soldiers play  the big drum,
As the sign of victory   and  went back to city of Lanka.

Thapasa vrundavum  Deva samoohavum,

Nagasthra bandham theernithu  thalkshane.

The crowd of  sages   as well as devas,
Became sad and  the valorous Vibheeshana,
Became greatly sad    and when he   fainted,
And at that time   the  killer of the serpents ,
Who was like a golden mountain  came ,
Making the seven islands , seven oceans,
And seven mountains   shake , with ,
A luster   of one billion suns, making  ,
The waters of the ocean split in to two,
Shaking all the three  worlds by his two  wings,
And that enemy of the serpent  saluted Rama’s feet,
And   immediately the tie  of Nagasthra   came to an end.

The monkeys freed   from the effect of the arrow,
With their sorrows coming to an end , were  looking alert
The  lover of devotees   with happiness  and with affection,
Gave his blessings  to Garuda  and he   saluted  Rama with folded hands ,
And took his leave   and  that Garuda  disappeared   in the sky  ,
Being  much stronger     than before   in speed and strength,
The monkeys as  per the orders   of the  king,
Started  throwing  stones  , trees and hills on Lanka,

Vanna shathrukkale   konnu  mamathmajan,

“My son has  killed  all the enemies   who have come  ,
And even before   he has   gone to his  home  ,
Surprisingly   they have   come   back,
I can  only say “good”, “good”,
Please go and find out why this sound?”
 When the ten faced one told like this,
His emissaries  went and became  wise about it,
And they  told everything in detail.

“Veerya  bala  vega  vikramam kai kondu  ,
Suryathmajadhikalaya  kapi kulam,
Hasthangal   thorum alathavum kai kondu,
Bhithi than uthamangathinmel nilkkunnor,

Kettu Dasasyanum  kopena  chollinaan.

The  monkeys    who are  those of the son of Sun God,
With valour , strength  and adventure  ,
With burning   torches  in their hand,
Are     standing on the top of walls shouting,
If you have  any sense of shame come out ,
After  thinking well ,  provided   you  are male  ,
Have  you not heard this.,”  hearing  this,
As told by them  the ten faced  one said with anger .

“Manavanmaare  yere, madamulla  ,
Vanaranmaareyum  koonnu  odukeeduvaan,
Poka  Dhoom rakshan , padayodu koodave  ,
Vegena   yudham   jaichu variga nee.”

To kill   those men and more than that  those,
Exuberant monkeys , Dhoomraksha  you go,
Along with   an army  and come  back,
Quickly    after  winning    the war.”
Sending him after  blessing thus ,
And that   very angry  Dhoomraksha  ,
Started  marching along with loud ,
Playing  of several musical instruments  ,
And he went out of   the western gate ,
And there  he fought   with Hanuman,
And that   war was greatly fierce.

Velasi venmazhu  kuntham sarasanam,

Armed with Vel ,    sword, white axe , spear , bow ,
Trident , pestle , iron stick   and mace  ,
Riding on elephant, horse  , chariot ,
With great courage  those   Rakshasa  warriors,
Armed with stone  , tree   and hills  ,
Having a mountain like body those  monkeys ,
Fought   with each other  and died ,
Here and there  those  greatly valorous ones.

Chorayum aarai ozhugi pala vazhi,

Blood flowed like a river in various streams,
And Hanuman who was   greatly valorous,
Uprooted   a tall peak of a hill,
And threw   it   at his adversary,
And Doomraksha taking a mace from  ,
His chariot   jumped  on to the floor,
And his chariot as well  as horses were powdered ,
Anger  increased in the mind of Hanuman,
And he started  killing the Rakshasas,
Seeing that  the problem was increasing ,
Dommraksha   beat  Hanuman with the  mace  with great courage   
And without  any problems and with great   sense   of anger ,
Hanuman threw  another hill   at   him.

Doomrakshan yeru  kondu umbar purathingal,

Being hit by it   Dhoomaraksha    went  to ,
The city of death   and there lived happily  ,
And the remaining Rakshasas  went inside the fort ,
And the ladies there   loudly cried   and wept,
Hearing the happenings, the ten faced  one,
With pain in the  mind told.

“Vajrahasthari pravaran  mahabalan,
Vajra damshtran  thanne  poka yudhathinai  ,
Manusha vanaranmare   jayichu,
Abhimana keerthyaa  variga “ yenu ayacheedinaan,

Durnimithangl  undayathu anadhithya ,
Chennu  kapikalodu yethu  mahabalan.

Let Vajra Damshtra    who is very strong ,
And foremost among enemies   of Indra  go to war ,
And  win over   the   men and monkeys  ,
And return  back with   respect and fame”
Saying this  Ravana    sent them,
And they started   through the southern tower,
Without bothering about that bad omens seen,
 Opposed  Angadha   the grandson of Indra 
And  that strong one   fought   with the monkeys.

Vruksha  silaa shaila   vrushti kondu yethavum,

Raktha nadhikal   olichu pala vazhi,
Nrutham thudangi   kabandhangalum   balal.

In that great battle    lots of Rakshasas died ,
By  the raining   of trees , stones   and mountains,
And innumerable   monkeys also died   by  use of,
Sword , other weapons , arrow   as well as Shakthi,
That great   army   which had ten divisions  ,
Was completely lost    to  the Rakshasas ,
The river   of blood   started flowing  in various streams,
And     the headless  dead bodies     started   dancing.

When   Angadha   and Vajra Damshtra ,
Were fighting with each other ,
Angadha snatched the sword   from  Vajra Damshtra,
And cut off  his neck  and threw it away,
Hearing that story , the king of  Rakshasas,
Sent   the very brave  Akambana  with,
A very great army  at that  time,
The  chief of the enemy of Indra , that Akambana ,
 Started   his war   through the western gate  ,
And fought with Hanuman  and speedily,
He forsook  his real body and   went to the place  of God of death.

Maruthiye sthuthichu maha lokarum,
Param bhayam peruthu Dasakandanum,
SAncharichan  nija raksha   senayil,

Vanara   sena parannathum  kottakal,
Onamai vannathum kandoranantharam,
“Kshipram  Prahasthane kondu variga” yennu ,
Kalpicha neram  avan vannu  koopinaan.

 All the world praised  Hanuman,
And for the ten necked one fear  increased ,
And so he travelled in to the   army of Rakshasas,
And that   ten faced one at that time saw ,
That  the monkey army was  spread  all over ,
In Rameswaram,  on   the top of the bridge  ,
As well as  the entire   Subela   mountains ,
And saw his broken forts  and afterwards ,
He quickly ordered  , “Quickly   bring Prahastha.”
And   he  immediately   appeared  before him.

“Nee anionjeelayo  vruthantham okkave  ,
Nayakanmaar   padakkarum illaikayo?
Chellunna chellunna   Rakshasa   veerare  ,
Kollunnathum  kandirikkayill ingu naam,
Jnano bhavano kanishtano  por cheythu,
Manusha  vanaranmare  odukkuvaan,
Pokunnatharennu cholka” yennu kettavan,
“Pokunnathinnu jnan”   yennu kai koopinan.

When he asked  “ did you not know    all the facts  ,
Do we not have leaders for  our army ?
We   cannot simply sit   here  when,
All   the  Rakshasa  heroes who go are  getting killed,
Either me, or you  or my elder son  has to go to the war,
So that  the men and monkeys   are  subdued.
Please  tell me   who will go?”
And Prahastha saluting him told , “I will go.”

Thannude manthrikal  nalu perullavar,

Inganeyulloru manthrikal nalvarum,
Thingina van padayum   nadannithu.

He then summoned the four ministers,
As well as   the  four winged army ,
The great  hero Prahastha   was the ,
Controller of the quarter army of Lanka,
And the four ministers, Kumbha,
Mahanadha  , Durmuka  and samunnatha,
Who   was  a great hero enemy  of Devendra  ,
Marched   along with  a  very dense big army.

Markatanmarkku  methu okke  marikkunnu,

Though he    saw ill omens on the way ,
Determined in his mind  , well prepared  ,
He started   through the   eastern gate  ,
And fought with Nila  , the son of fire God  ,
The monkeys    using stones, trees and mountains,
 Started   decimating   the Rakshasa   army  ,
And  the wheel , sword  , spear , sakthi and arrows ,
Fell on the  monkeys   and many of them died.

Great elephants    and horses   died  ,
And their blood   ran like   a river,
Jambhavan the   son of  Lord Brahma  ,
Killed  Kubha hanu  and durmukha ,
And also Mahanadha   and SAamunnatha ,
And later  Prahastha  the great warrior  ,
Fought  one to one in fist fight with Neela  ,
And was sent to the city of God of death.
Hearing the death of the army  and their commander ,
Ravana   who had  great  self respect  became blind with anger.

6.14 Ravanande pada  purappadu

The march of Ravana  and his army.

“Aareyum  porinnu  ayakkunnathallini  ,

I will not send any one else   to the war,
I can go and win over them myself,
Those who are   with  me , please come,
And let my chariot come “ told he  ,
And like a full moon and others holding umbrella,
He   climbed   on to a   golden chariot,

AAlavattangalum  , venchamaranglum,
Neelathazhakalum , muthu kudakalum,

Kolahalathode   koode purapettan.

With round fans    and   white chowries  ,
With blue decorations  , pearl umbrellas ,
He climbed  on a  chariot with wind like speed,
Drawn by one   thousand    horses.,
Along with crowns  which were like peaks  in Meru mountain,
With garlands   and other many ornaments ,
With ten faces , twenty hands ,
And holding  bow and arrow in his hands  ,
Looking like  a  blue mountain, that  Lord of Rakshasas,
 Departed   with much  din and fanfare .

Lankayilulla Maha radharellam ,
SAnkha rahitham  purpettar   anneram,

Vikramameriya  nakthanjaranmaare  ,
Okke puro bhuvi kandu Raghuvaran,
Mandasmitham cheythu nethrantha samjayaa ,
Mandam Vibheshanan  thannodarul cheythu.

At that  time all the great warriors of Lanka,
Without doubt departed with him  and at that time,
His sons ,ministers  , brothers ,
Nephews, relations , chief of armies ,
Crowding and crowding the northern tower
Which was   the most important gate  ,
 And seeing so many valorous   Rakshasas,
Outside   the town  Rama  smiled  and making signs  with the eye,
He slowly    told   Vibheeshana.

“Nalla veeranmaar  varunnathu Kanedo  ,
Chollenam   mennodu  ivare  yadha gunam,”
Yennathu kettu  Vibheeshanan  , Raghavan,
THannodu   mandasmitham cheythu   cholinnan,
“Bana chapathode  balarkka   kanthi poondu,
AAna kazhuthil varuvathu  Akambanan,

Kayam valarnnu  Vibhooshanam poondu ,
Athikayan  varunnithu  Ravananthanmakan,”

“See here   very many heroes  are coming,
Please tell  about them to me  in order.”
Hearing that    Vibheeshana   told Rama   with a smile,
“He who comes with   luster   of young son,
Carrying bow and arrow  and riding on an elephant is Akambana,
Riding  on a chariot with   a lion in the  flag,
And carrying    bow and arrows  Is one as valorous as a lion ,
And is Indrajit   who is the son of Ravana  ,
And one who defeated   us earlier.
Riding on a long chariot, with a big body,
And wearing many ornaments,
Is the  son of  Ravanantha”

Ponnaninju  aana kazhuthil   varunnavan,

Kumbhakarnathmajan  kumbhan angethavan ,
THambi Nikumban  parigayudan allo,
Deva kulanthakanakiya  Ravanan,
Yevarodum namme velvaan purapettu.”

The one wearing gold and riding  on elephant’s neck,
Is a great  one   and is called Mahodara , oh king,
The one riding on a horse   and rotating an iron pestle  ,
Is one of the chief soldiers   called  Naranthakan,
Riding on a white buffalo  , holding a trident,
And keeps on jumping and laughing  is Trisiras,
Another   son of Ravana   who is on other side ,
Is  Devanthaka   who comes riding on a chariot,
Next one is Kumbha  , the son of Kumbha karna,
And next is Nikumba  armed with mace  and is his brother  ,
And Ravana the killer   of the clan of devas ,
Is riding with all to kill all of us.

“vambanayullor ivanodu  porinnu,
Mumbil adiyannu  anugraham nalkanam,
Yennu Soumithriyum  chennu irannedinaan,
Mannavan  thanum arul  cheythithu anneram.

“Please   give  me permission  to fight  ,
With this great one   and bless  me”
Begged   the son of Sumithra ,
And the king replied   at that time .

“vruthrariyum  poril  vithrasthanai  varum ,
Nakthancharendranodu  yethal ariga nee ,
Mayayum undu  nisacharar kethavum,
Nyayavum  milla avarkku aarkkum orikkalum  ,

Even Indra    would get defeated   if he,
Fights with   Ravana , please  understand this,
And all Rakshasas have magical powers,
And they never observe justice in war  ,
And he is  the  one liked   by  Lord Shiva,
And he has   got the sword called Chandrahasa ,
Thinking about of these  , with a firm,
Mind only we have to go for a war with him,”
And when  he told all this  as if he was a student ,
Lakshmana   saluted him  and went back.

Janaki chorane   kandoru nerathu   ,

AArthanai   vannu  nisachara  nadhanum,

Raksho varanodu Marutha puthranum.

Seeing   the thief of the  Janaki  ,
The monkey chief Hanuman,
Jumped    and fell  on his chariot  ,
And chief of Rakshasas  was worried,
And extending his  right hand  ,
That   son of wind god told  the Rakshasa  lord.

“Nirjaranmaareyum  thapasanmareyum,
SAjjanamaya mathulla   janatheyum  ,
Nithyam upadravikkunna   ninkku  ,
Vannethum aapathu , kapi kulathal yedo,

Yennu paranju   onnadichaan kapeendranum,
Nannai virachu   veenan Dasa  Kandanum.

“To you   who daily troubles   devas, sages,
Good people    and other people  .
The danger has come   from the clan of monkey.
If you are  really valorous  , try to remove me,
Who has come here   to beat   and kill you  ,
I am the one   who killed    your  very,
Valorous   son Aksha   Kumara “
Saying this   that king of monkeys beat him ,
And that  ten necked one shivered   and fell.

Pineyum unarnnu  chonnan ,” Ividekinnu,
Vanna kapikalil   nallanallo  bhavan,”
“Nanma  yenthayathu   yenikkithu kondu,

Yethrayum   durbalan yennu vannunammil,
Ithiri neraminnum poruththidinam “,
Yenna  nerathonnadichan  dasananan,
Pinne mohichu  veenaan kapi  sreshtanum.

He got up    and told, “among all  the,
Monkeys   that   have come today   are you not the best”,
“What  good did I  get because   of that ,
No one is there   who does  not die once they get my beating,
And death has  not come   to you , so,
I have   become weaker than you,
Let us    fight  little   more “,
When he told like this  , the ten faced one  hit him once  ,
And the great  monkey swooned   and fell.

Neelan anneram   kuthi kondu   Ravanan,

Villu than melum  kodi marathon melum
Ullasamodu   makutangal pathilum,
Chadi kramena   Nrutham  thudangeedinaan,
Paadi thudanginaan  Naradanum thadhaa .

Neela at that   time jumped   ,climbed ,
On Ravana  and started   dancing  on,
His ten crowns, on his bow, on  his flag post,
And with happiness   on  his ten heads,
One after  another  and   at that time,
Narada   started   singing.

Pavakasthram kondu   pavaka puthrane ,

Kanaruthathe   chamanjithu porkalam,
Villu murichu  kalanjithu  Lakshmanan,
Allal muzhuthu ninnu   dasa  kandanum.

Using  the arrow of fire  Ravana pushed ,
Away   the   son of fire   God ,
Immediately Lakshmana    became angry  ,
And speedily  fought   with Ravana   at that time,
Both of them rained   arrows at each other,
And the battle field became  invisible  ,
Lakshmana cut off  the bow of Ravana,
And that  ten necked one stood worried.

Bala sareeram illakaruthanjithu.

He then threw   a Vel given by Maya ,
On to the   chest   of Lakshmana  ,
Since he was not able to stop it by arrows ,
Lakshmana   fell down hit by the spear,
That Ravana    tried   to lift  ,
That   young man who fell  tired ,
But to him who could lift   the Kailasa  mountain,
That boy’s body appeared immovable.

Chil purishan mumboil  vechu vananginaan.

He then thought about possible weight of Rama ,
And  became nonplussed and ,
Hanuman who was  seeing all this,
Jumped   and with full force   hit Ravana,
And Ravana fell down vomiting blood on the   chariot,
And Hanuman  immediately carried ,
Lakshmana  like   a flower   and with respect  ,
Placed   him before  Lord Rama.

Marum pirinju  Dasamukhan kayyil  ,
Ammaru  pukku  Maya dathamaam  sakthiyum,
TRilokya nayakanakiya Ramanum ,
Poulasthyanodu   Yudham thudanginaan.

That spear  given by Maya  , went away,
From the chest  of Lakshmana  and went  to Ravana’s hands  ,
And Rama    the lord of all the three  worlds,
Started   war with Ravana   belonging to the clan of Pulasthya.

Gandha vahathmajan  vandhichu chollinaan,

Konnu jagat thrayam palichu kolluvan,
Yennde mumbil ara kshanam   nillu nee.”

At that  time  the son of the scent carrier  saluted and told,
“For the war   with the ten faced one  ,
Climb  on my  neck and be comfortable ,
And without any effort  kill the ten headed one”
Rama hearing what was told by Hanuman,
Climbed on   the neck of Hanuman ,
And told that   Ravana as follows,
“I have   had great desire to see  you from near,
And since    that  luck has   come to me,
I would look after  the three  worlds ,
By killing   you and all those who have come with you  ,
Please   stand in front of me for half a second,”

After seeing this he rained arrows and weapons,
And Ravana also counted  each one of them by another ,
And war   at that time   became   very terrible  ,
And the sea   got shaken  and churned ,
When Ravana sent an arrow and wounded  Hanuman,
God Rama became extremely angry ,
And becoming very bold  sent  an arrow,
Aimed at the heart of Ravana  speedily ,
And   when the arrow hit him with speed ,
The  bow of Ravana    fell on the    floor.

Seeing the weak state   of the ten faced one,
Immediately   Rama   destroyed his,
Chariot  , flag  , umbrella  , horses and pretty crowns,
And  also killed   his charioteer,
And Ravana   stood there   with increasing sorrow,

Ramanum   Ravanan thannodu  arul  cheythaan,
“Aamayam  param ninakkundu manase ,
Poyalum innu  , bhayapadayka yethume ,

Rama    then told    Ravana at that time,
“In your mind there   is great  tension,
You go today without    any fear  ,
You can go to Lanka and be there  today,
Along with weapons ,and vehicles  ,
You have to come tomorrow  well prepared.”
Hearing these words   of Sri Rama,
The ten faced one started  walking fast ,
Under the fear  that Rama’s arrows  ,
Were  following him , with great  worry,
He  was looking back  several times,
And reached  his palace with  body full of sweat,
And became    worried  because of  the problems  that he faced.

That  king of men later  saved  Lakshmana,
The son of   Sun God   who was the king of monkeys and
Neela  and other  monkeys  who were stuck by Ravana’s arrows,
By use  of divine medicine and ,
Also  told them about his principles .

The king of Rakshasa  told   his servants  ,
Remembering  the events that  have happened,
“My  valour  ,   strength    and fame  ,
The good  things and   my  virility  ,
Have all been lost  and  luck has reduced ,
I am sure that   bad time is coming to  me.

Lord Brahma himself  , king Anaranya ,
Vedavathi  , the great  Nandikeswara  ,
Rambha   and later Nalakhoobara  ,
Indra    and the devas   with him,
Many sages   such as Agasthya  ,
Parvathi who is the consort of Shiva,
Many virtuous women with deep  penance ,
Who were   observing   strict   virtue ,
Have    cursed   me  and I feel   that ,
They can all never  become lies.

(Note: Barhma gave him a boon that  he cannot be killed by any one except a man or a  monkey.Anaranya was an ancestor of Rama who was killed by Ravana . He cursed and told that Rama will be born  in his clan   and kill him. Vedavathi was a lady who was doing penance to marry  Vishnu. When Ravana caught her hand , she jumped in the fire and died. She cursed him that  if he touches  any lady  without her  permission his head will break in to pieces. She was reborn as Sita,. Rambha was the lover of Nalakhoobara  , the son of Kubhera. When he insulted Rambha they cursed him.He once called Nandikeswara    as  a monkey and he cursed him that  his town will be destroyed by monkeys. He lifted Kailasa   and  made Parvathi afraid and she   cursed  him.)

Think  about   what we can do now,
To again  reach victory  , Hey,
Go and wake up  Kumbhakarna ,
Who is equal to god of death ,  without any delay.
We cannot wait for six months   to wake him up,
As   he has started   sleeping only  nine days ago,
Please  somehow   wake him up with love .

As send by the   king of Rakshasas,
Each Rakshasa   tried to wake him up,
By playing  Aanaka , Dundhubhi and  other musical instruments  ,
And making   horse army, Elephant army   and soldiers,
Rub , jump on   and shout    at the top of  their voice  ,
And also created  great din  , what  a surprise.

They poured thousand pots of water,
In Kumbhakarna’s ears  and they made,
Big elephants pull  his nasal hairs,
And made   elephants shout ,
But that  Indra’s enemy did not have  ,
Any botheration but  suddenly,
He woke up with   a yawn,
And those Rakshasas  ran scrared.

They offered thousand pots of Alcoholic   drinks,
Thousand pots   of blood , hill like   cooked rice  ,
And seeing them becoming happy  he got up,
Then he ate  meat   and other food items,
And  became happy  , washed his mouth  by gargling,
And the servants   came before him  and saluted him.

Vattam varathe   poi kolluga   nallathum.”

When he was informed of all news,
The brother   of Ravana heard the reason  and told,
“And so I would kill   all the enemies.
And come back after  solving the   sorrows,”
And when he started   Mahodara  ,
Slowly saluted    him   and told at   that time,
“Please  see your elder brother , salute him,
And   without getting  tired, take leave from him.”

Yevam Mahodharan  chonnathu kettavan,

Sodari thannude   nasakuchangale,
Chedichathinnu   jnan Janaki dEviye,
Sri Rama Lakshman mar ariyathe  ,
Kandarasmini  kondu vecheedinen.

Hearing what   Mahodara   told him,
He went and saluted   Ravana ,
Who embraced   him tightly   and ,
Made  his  brother sit near  him and told,
“Please   remember  these matters  ,
And hear   the things that  happened,
When the cut    the nose   and breasts,
Of our sister  , I went and stole ,
Janaki when Rama  and Lakshmana  ,
Were not there and kept her in the hermitage

He  built a bridge  on the ocean ,
And came for war  along with a monkey army ,
And killed   several people   including Prahastha  ,
And without any effort  he  also  cut me,
And sent me  killed  without killing and because of that,
I became greatly worried    and made  others  to wake you up,
And  you  please    save   me   by ,
Killing all those   men and monkeys.”

Yennathu kettu chonnan Kumbhakarnanum,

Hearing that  Kumbhakarna  told,
“Good   , very good , only good is good , hear,
He who does not know    good and bad,
If he   obeys   the advice   of  those,  
Who  know    what is good , then it is good,
For others    would good ever happen?
Please   give back    Sita to Rama
Said our    brother    to you  and  that made
You  very angry , It is good that  you drove him out ,
 Think of good , you will know,
He got from all  places   that  which is good,
And all his    future   would be good ,
And that   is not a crime.”

No body can  bring  good to you,
Worries would come when danger  is coming,
Due to  time , place   and  due to  principles,
The   time of enemies   and their valour  differs.
If there   is a minister     who studies,
Enemies   and friends   and the mediators  ,
And the changes    in wealth and virility  ,
The four tricks  and the six  methods  ,
And then guess  as to what is likely to come,
And   advices    his boss  for  his  good,
Then the boss would  get a  pleasant life  ,
And his   fame   would greatly increase.

Allal  visham undu avarkkenni yillallo.

Forsaking   this type of dharma of a minister  ,
Telling the king   what he likes to hear ,
So that   what is told gives him happiness in ear,
And acting day by day  as if he has great self respect,
And   daily see to it that  destruction comes  to the king,
Are   the foolish ministers and  to those
Who say that   poison  is better  than  them,
Would get  the poison of worry  and nothing else.

If you obey the advice   of foolish ministers,
The country  , our life and our clan would be destroyed,
Animals hearing  a different sounds , get attracted ,
And   go there and die  because of  their problems,
Similarly the butterflies   get attracted  by fire,
Silently   go and fall in the fire and die ,
And fishes get attracted  by the food offered,
Go get   suffering   because  they catch the hook,
And so if we  have   too much desire  , it leads   to danger ,
And  sometimes it would not be possible   to  avoid   these.

Oh   king of Rakshasas, I came to know  ,
About   your growing desire   to Sita  ,
Which is leading   to complete  destruction,
 Of our    clan  as well as our country ,
He who is a slave   to his senses ,
Will never have a day   without  any danger  ,
And  to one   who can rule  over his senses,
No danger  will come at any time.

Though we   know that  a  particular  thing is not good,
Our desire or interest  some times travels to that ,
By the   interest that  we inherited from previous births,
Whatever we try   out  , we would be in its grip only,
But   is there any one who  makes his mind detached  ,
From it   by   the scientific advice   and wisdom, please try to find out?
In our previous discussion   did I not ,
Tell you   the future   result of what we are thinking now?
And that has  now come in to reality ,
And God’s will  can be stopped by no one.

Manushan alla Raman Purushothaman,

Jnan oru naal   visaalaayam   Yadha sukham,
Kanananthe   Nara  Narayanasrame Naradane  ,
Parithoshena   kandu  namakaricheedinen.

Rama  is not a  man but  Lord Vishnu,
Who is all worlds and is divine  ,
Sita   is the goddess Yogamaya ,
Please  understand this in your mind,
Had I not told this to you earlier ,
Oh king , Why did   I  tell you  like that ?
One day  , in a very big pleasant forest  ,
In the hermitage   of sages Nara  and Narayana,
With happiness  I saw  sage Narada   and saluted him

Yethoru dikkil  niinu agathanaiyithennu,
Adaravodu arul  cheyka   Maha mune  ,
Yenthoru   vruthanthamullu   jagathingal,
Antharam  koodathu arul cheyka  “yennellam,
SAdaram   chonnan   anudanthangal okkave  .

“From which direction have you come .
Please tell me   with love  , great sage ,
And what   are   the news in the universe ,
Please tell me in a plain manner” I asked,
 And he     told me all   the news   in detail.

“Ravana peedithamaarai  chamanjoru  ,
DEvakalum  munimarum onnichu ,
Deva devesanaam  Vishnu Bhagawane  ,
Sevichu unarthichu  sangadamokkave ,
Trilokya  kandakanakiya Ravanan,
Poulasthya  puthran atheeva   dushtan, khalan,
Jnangaleyellam  upadravicheedunnathu ,
Yengum  irikkaruthathe   chamanjithu.”

The devas    and several sages ,
Greatly troubled   by Ravana  ,
Served and told  their sorrow ,
To Lord Vishnu  who is the god of gods ,
“Ravana  who is the bad one of the three  worlds,
Is the son of Poulasthya    and is a bad one  and also cruel,
And he keeps on troubling all of us ,
So that  we are  not in a position to  live anywhere.”

Marthyanal yenniye mruthyuvillennathju ,

Marthyanai thanne pirannu  bhavan ini,
Sathya dharmangale     Rakshikka   Vename  ,
Itham unarthicha neram mukundanum,
Chitha karunyam kalarnnu   aruli cheythu.

Clearly  Lord Brahma   has  earlier told,
That  his death will  not come by any one other  than man,
And so Sir, please  take birth as  man,
And protect  truth   and Dharma .
When they  told   him like this , That Lord Vishnu,
With a mind mixed with mercy told them.

“Pruthviyil jnan  Ayodhyayayam  Dasaradha ,
Puthranai   vannu pirannu ini sathwaram,
Nakthanjaradhipan thanneyum nigrahichu,
Athal   theerthiduvan  , ini trilokathingal,

Yennarul cheythu    maranju Mahamuni  ,
Nannai niroopichu   kolga nee manase   ,
Raman Parabrahmamaya   Sanathanan  ,
KOmalan   indheevara   dala shyamalan.

In  this earth   I would be born as   a son,
To Dasaratha of Ayodhya   quickly,
And kill  the chief of the Rakshasa   clan,
And  solve all problems of the three  worlds,”
And along with   his  Sakthi  ,  that ,
Truth loving God ,  has come as   Rama,
And he   would  now kill all of you,
And auspiciousness  will come to the world,”
Saying that  the sage disappeared,
Remember   this well  in your mind ,
Rama  is the divine  Brahmam, the primeval one ,
The pretty  one who is black like  blue lotus flower.

Maya manisha vesham poonda   Ramane ,
Kayena vachaa  manasa  bhajikka nee ,
Bhakthi kandal  prasdikkum Raghuthaman,

Pankaja nethranaam Vishnuvinengilum,
SAnkhyavathaam  matham cholluvan   ninnude ,
SAnkayellam  akale  kalanjeeduvaan.

Pray   Rama , who has only taken up that  form of illusion,
By your body and mind, for Rama   would be pleased  with devotion,
Devotion    is the mother  of ultimate   wisdom,
Devotion is always   the one granting salvation,
To those   who do not have devotion , all acts  are useless,
Though there   are  innumerable   incarnations  ,
To the   lotus eyed    Vishnu , I will tell you,
The opinion of the wise  which will,
Help you   to throw all  doubts   far  , far  away.

Ramavathara   samam alla   athonnume ,
Nama japathinale   varum mokshavum,
Jnana swaroopan aakunna Shivan paran,

Ramane thanne bhajichuvidwajjana ,
Mamayam nalkunna SAmsara   sagaram,
Langichu Rama padatheyum  prapichu,
SAngadam  theerthu kollunnithu   santhatham.

No other incarnation is equal to Rama,
For just by chanting his name   you would get salvation,
The divine Shiva   who  is the   form of wisdom ,
Is the one who has   taken the human form of Rama  ,
And he is the one  who tells that  he is the divine Brahma,.
You please   sing the names of   Rama,
And   cross  the ocean of domestic full of  misery,
And    attain   the   lotus feet of Rama ,
And permanently   get rid of sorrow.

Budha thathwanmaar nirantharam Ramane

The philosophers   permanently   keep ,
Rama   in their mind    and daily meditate  on him,
Tell his story   , Chant his names  ,
See   and see  the souls  of all   beings,
Become   one   with Lord   Vishnu ,
And   easily  merge  in to the stable joy .
Please throw away these  longings of illusion,
And   start  singing about   that  idol  of joy.


6.16  Kumbhakarna   Vadham

The killing of Kumbha Karna

Sodaran yevam   paranjathu  kattu  ,
Athi krodham  muzhutha   dasasyanum   chollinnan,
“Jnaopadesam    yenikku cheyvan alla ,
Jnan  innu unarthi varuthi, Yadhasukham,
Nidraye sevichu kolga, neeyethrayum,
Budhiman  yennathum   innu arinjenaham.

Khedam akannu    sukhichu vazhunna naal,
AAm yengil aasu chennu aayodhanam cheythu  ,
Ramadhikale   vadhichu variga nee.”

Hearing what    his brother   told,
The ten headed one  with very great anger   told,
“I did  not  wake you  up to preach wisdom   to me,
You immediately   go  and pleasantly serve your sleep,
I came to know today that   you are  intelligent,
And from now on I will hear  Vedas and Sastras from you,
When my sorrows go away , I would lead  a pleasant  life  ,
If yes, immediately    go for  the war  ,
And come back after killing  Rama   and others.

Agrajan  vakkukal   itharam   ketta alavu  ,
Ugranaam Kumbhakarnan  nadaneedinaan,
Vygravum   kai vittu   yudhe   Raghuthaman,
Nigrahichaal   varum  moksham yennorthavan,

AAyiram bharam irumbu kondulla ,
Thannayudhamayulla soolavum kai kondu ,
Vanara   senayil  pukkoru nearthu,
Vanara   verar yellavarum odinaar.

Hearing the words of his elder   brother this way,
That Fierce  Kumbhakarna     started walking,
Leaving  out his worries, thinking that,
If Rama  kills him in war , he   would get salvation,
After   crossing the gate   like   a very tall ,
Mountain king, shouting and with  great speed,
Carrying  his steel trident weighing   thousand stones ,
When he entered   the monkey army  ,
All the  monkey warriors   started  running away.

Kumbhakarnan  varavu  kandu aakulaal,
SAmbramam poondu   Vibheeshanan thannodu  ,
“Vanbulla  Rakshasan yevan ivan  paraka ,
Ambarathollanm  uyaram  undadhbutham,”
Itham Raghuthaman  chodicha  alavu , athinnu,
Utharamasu  Vibheeshanan  Chollinaan,
“Ravana sodharan Kumbhakarnan  mama,
Poorvajan yethrayum  SAkthiman  budhiman,
Deva kulanthakan , nidhravasan   ivan,
Aavathillarkkum  yethaal jayichiduvan, “

Worried at  seeing the coming of Kubhakarna  ,
With great fear  , Rama  asked   Vibheeshana,
“Who is this very powerful  Rakshasa,
Surprisingly he is as    tall  as the sky,”
And as an answer to that  Vibeeshana  told as answer,
“ He is the brother   of Ravana   and my elder brother ,
He is very strong and   very wise ,
Killer of devas, liable to sleep ,
And no one  can   win over   him.”

Thacharithrangal  yellam ariyichu  ,
Chennu ichayaa  poorvajan  kalkkal veenidinaan,
“Brathaa  Vibheeshanan  Jnann bhavad   bhakthiman,
Preethi  poondenne   anugrahikkename,
Sitaye  nalkuka  Raghavanennu  Jnan,

Ugrathayodum aduthathu kandu  jnan,
BHeethanai  nalu amathyanmaarumai  ponnu,
Sitapathiye   saranamai  prapichen.”

Then he told all his stories  ,
And of his own accord he fell  at the feet of Kumbhakarna,
“Brother  , I am Vibheeshana    and I am your devotee  ,
Please  bless  me     with love  ,
I told  with respect to Ravana to give back Sita ,
AS much as I can  and seeing that    with  a knife in hand,
He was  coming   near  to kill me  ,
I became scared  and with four ministers,
I came here and sought   the protection of the consort of Sita.

Itham Vibheeshana vakkukal   kettu avan,
Chitham kulurthu  punarnnan   anujane  ,
Pinne purathu thalodi paranjithu,

Narayana priyanethrayum  neeyennu,
Naradan   thanne paranju ketten aham,
Maya  mayam  iprapanchamellam , ini,
Poyalum  yengil nee   Rama Padanthike  .

Hearing   these words of Vibheeshana  ,
With a very happy frame  ,  he hugged  him,
And then he  patted him on his back and said,
“You are  auspicious  and nothing else  ,
Let you live in   this world for many years ,
Go on serving   the lotus   feet of Rama,
You  who is pure, greatest  devotee,
Darling of Lord Vishnu are  sure,
To be able to protect our clan,
That  is what   sage Narada   told me  ,
This  world   is filled with illusion,.
Go  near   the  lotus feet of Rama.

Yennathu kettu abhivadhyavum  cheythu  , athi,

Hearing that  saluting him  , with great sorrow,
Shedding lot of tears    he    retired  back,
And reached  near Rama   and when he  was standing  thoughtful ,
Kumbhakarna  with great anger   started  killing  ,
The monkeys  with his hand and leg  ,
Getting scared and not able to come near,
The monkeys started  running to all   sides ,
And like   an elephant king in rut    within half a second,
He killed    hundred   thousand monkeys.

Markata rajan    athu kandu    oru mala,
Kai kondu   yerinjithu   maril  thaduthavan,

Athi vithrasthanai  veenu mohichathu   arkajan,
Appol  avaneyum  ookodaduthu kondu,
Uthpanna modham nadannu   nisacharan.

The king of monkeys seeing that   took a mountain,
And threw it with his hand  and this was stooped near the chest,
And Kumbakarna   hit   Sugreeva with his  trident,
And he  fell fear stuck and swooned ,
Then  that  Rakshasa   carried him,
 With great joy  and started   walking .

Yudhe jayichu Sugreevaneyum kondu ,

When the Rakshasa   chief  returned ,
Winning in the war   and taking Sugreeva with him,
The ladies becoming     extremely happy  ,
And with increasing joy , threw at   him,
Garlands dipped   in   rose water   and   sandal paste ,
So that   his tiredness   will greatly decrease ,
And   when this fell on   the king of monkeys ,
He got up  from his faint  and with great anger ,
Using   his nose  , ears   and   nails   cut off his  ties,
And    rose up   and travelled in the sky very fast.

Krodhavum  yethu  abhimana haniyum,

Pinneyum vari vizhungum avan thadhaa.

Getting angry and having lost his face  ,
And with inner fear  and being anointed with blood,
When he was   seen coming again  ,Lakshmana,
Neared   him with great   preparation,
And went on raining arrows   like ,
Throwing them on a    huge mountain ,
He in turn was    swallowing  hundred thousand monkeys   ,
At a time  many of them    were  ,
Coming out of his nose   and ears but,
Then he continued swallowing them.

Rakshovarum anneram  niroopichu,

YUdhangane   veenu vanara   vrundavum,
Nakthancaranmarum ottu marichithu.

That Rakshasa    after   deep thought ,
Disregarding  Lakshmana   , speedily,
Neared  Lord Rama   and seeing that,
Rama  with  great speed  sent several   arrows,
And cut off his right   hand   and trident ,
Immediately    those   parts   fell on the battle field,
 And   several monkeys and Rakshasas ,
Died    due to those  falling on them.

Vamahasthe  maha slavum kai kondu  ,

Ardha chandrakaram aaya   randu ambu   kondu ,
Uthunga   padangalum   muricheedinaan.

Taking a huge tree   in his left hand  ,
That  Rakshasa  came very near  Rama,
He sent Indrasthra  and cut it  and by ,
Falling of which many  enemies of Indra died,
And then with great anger  that lord of Rakshasas,
Came    very near  at that   time,
Then using two   crescent shaped  arrows,
 He cut  off his very tall legs.

Vakthravum  metham pilarnnu  vizhunguvaan,

 For swallowing opening his mouth very wide ,
That  Lord of Rakshasas again  approached him,
Rama filled   his mouth   with arrows ,
And by  sending an arrow  cut off his head,
And  Indra     at that  time became  happy,
And   the head   went and fell at  the gate  of the town,
And the   body fell   on the   earth.

And he started praising    Rama  who was the son of Dasaratha ,
Who is black like a water lily  , who is pretty, who holds bow and arrow  ,
Who resembles the full moon, who is the cream of mercy ,
Who is the full sea , Mukunda and always peaceful,
Who is Rama the bewitcher of the world and who is the Rama  of the souls,
With   great   sense   of joy  .

“Sitapathe  , Rama, Rajendra  , Raghava ,
Sridhara  , Srinidhe  , Sri Purushothama,
Sri Rama   deva devesa  , Jagannadha  ,
Narayanaa , niradharaa  , Namosthuthe .”

Salutations    to consort of Sita , Rama , king of kings , Raghava ,
Sridhara ,  Sri Nidhi  , Sri Purushothama  ,
Sri Rama,   god of devas  , lord of the universe  ,
Narayana and   one  who does not have any support.

Oh witness  of the world, Oh divine soul  , Oh primeval one ,
Oh  Lord of universe  , Oh divine Brahmam   , Oh God,
Daily   experiencing   pleasure  and pain,
Taking the    form of a man using   illusion,
Being pure philosopher and the form of wisdom,
Form of truth , king of all worlds  ,
The soul who is within all beings,
The one who likes  truthful character  ,
Permanently being  calm  having clear  and unclear   forms ,
One having no stains ,one having no form,
One having no properties, one who is the meaning of Vedas ,
One who is the divine soul , one who is peace  and desire less,
One  who by his  sight    does    destruction  and protection,
In several   incarnations  , one who  punishes,
And also  protects   dharma  and  takes daily,
The form of man  nature   and time  ,
Oh Divine soul   who loves his devotees  salutations.

Oh God who does not have emotions,
Who has the form of pure   wisdom ,
And who is the basis of all worlds  .
And who is the first,   salutations and salutations.
Except    by   your grace and by  no other means,
Your understanding will  come to people,
And  I have   got a chance    to see  your lotus like  feet,
And serve   it   through   your grace .
Oh divine  person , Oh Lord, Oh Lord of the universe,
Let  the greatness  of your mercy  live within me always.
Poverty , passion hatred , competition , anger ,
Avarice  , attachment  are  our enemies ,
In the   travel   towards   the  way of salvation,
And  I do not have strength  to  that  travel   due to your illusion.

Please   shower your blessings on me,

Always think about  you in mind,
Do your worship, sing your names,
And  travel all  over the universe ,
Singing your stories and thus become pure  ,
Oh  King of kings , Oh lord  of  the Raghu clan,
Oh lotus eyed  one, Oh Rama, Oh consort of Lakshmi.

Today half the load  of the earth is gone , because ,
Of your killing  Kumbhakarna today ,
Tomorrow Lakshmana who is the  king of snakes,
Would   kill  Megha Nadha  in war  ,
And on next day  you would  kill the ten necked one,
And would   save   all the three  worlds,
I am now going to the   world  of Brahma  ,
Oh Valorous man , Victory, victory to you”
Saying this , praying and saluting him,
That Narada  who was  a great devotee  ,
Took permission from Rama  ,
Quickly     went  and disappeared at that time.

6.18  Athikaya  vadham

Killing of Athikaya

Kumbha karnan  marichoru   vruthanthavum,
Kambham varumaru    kettu Dasananan,
Nohichu bhoomiyil   veenu punarudan,
Mohavum thernnu muhurtha   mathram kondu,

Mathanum  unmarganum  orumichu,
Athi sakthiyeridum nisa chara  veeranmaar,
Yettu perum samarthinnu   orumpettu  ,
Dushtanam   Ravanan thannodu  chollinaar,.

Ravana heard the news of Khumbakarna’s death,
As if he would go mad   and fell swooned on earth ,
Within a short time   he was all right   again,
And he started   crying telling various things,
That very sad   ten faced  one   was saluted by ,
Trisirass, the very  big  valorous Athikaya ,
DEvanthaka  , Naranthaka, Mahodhara  ,
Mahaparswa , Matha  and Unmatha   together ,
And they  were very strong valorous   Rakshasas,
And they all    wanted to go to war,
And told    the very  bad   Ravana   as follows.

“Dukhipathinnenthu kaanam , jnangal ,
Chennokke  ripukkale    konnu varumallo  ,
Yudhathinai  ayachedugil jnangale  ,
Sathrukkalal  oru peedayundai varaa.”

What   is the reason for this     sorrow  ,
We can go and kill all the enemies ,
If you   sent us for war  now ,
And then there  would not be any fear  from enemies.

“ Yengilo ningal poi    yudham cheythu,
SAngadam  theerku”, yennu chonnan Dasananan,
“Kandu koodatolmulla  perumpadayum,
Undu athu kodupoy kolvin yellavarum”
Aayudha   vahana bhooshana jalavum,
Aavolavum koduthan  dasa kandharan,
Vellam kanakke oarbba perum ada ykku,
Ullil  Maharadahnaar  ivar yenmareum,
Porkku purappettu chennathu kanda alv,
OOkodaduth kavi oravaranmarun,’’

“If it is so  , you go and   fight   the war,
And remove my sorrow, “  said the ten faced one  ,
“ There is an army   which extends   beyond sight  ,
You can take that      and kill every one,”
The ten headed one gave them weapons  
Vehicles   and ornaments   to a large extent”
In the middle   of the army   spreading like water  ,
Those   eight great   warriors  started  for war,
And as soon as they saw them the monkey army started  the attack.”

SAnkhyayillatholamulla   perum pata  ,
Van kdal pole  parannathu  kandalavu,

Chellunna  veerarodu yethu   nisacharar ,
Kollunathinnasu kapi varanmareyum,
Nalla  sasthrasthrangal   thooki  kshananthare .

The army   which is   beyond numbers  ,
Spread  like a sea was sent  to,
The house  of god of death  ,
As soon as it was seen , what  a surprise?
The Rakshasas   seeing the  valorous  ones,
Armed with stones  , mountains    trees,
Started   killing those  monkey heroes,
By spraying them with arrows within a minute.

Varana vaji  radhangalum  kalalum,
Dharunanmaraya   Rakshasa veerarum,
Veenu marichulla    chora puzhakalum,

Anthamillathe   kabandhangalum   palathu,
Anthike   nruthamadi  thudangi balaal.
Rakshasarokke   marichathu   kandu ,
Athi rookshathayodum aduthan  naranthakan.

The elephants, horses , chariots  and  army  in bare foot,
And very fearful   Rakshasa  warriors,
Died in large numbers and the rivers of blood,
Were seen     in many places ,
Endless  bodies without heads,
Started   dancing   in that  place .
Seeing that many Rakshasas  have died,
With  very great anger  Naranthaka   came near.

KUnthavum yenthi  kuthirappuram yeri  ,

Varanam yeri  Mahodhara  veeranum  ,
Therileri    thrisirassum ananjithu,
Moovarodum  porutheedinaan angadhan,
DEvadhikalum  pugazhthinar   anneram.

Riding on a horse  and  armed   with a spear ,
When he speedily came near  like   the  God of death ,
Angadha   hit him with his fist  , wounded and killed him.
Devanthaka   armed with an iron pestle ,
Neared   the grandson of Devendra and so did,
The valorous  Mahodhara    riding on an elephant  ,
And Trisiras    riding on a chariot ,
And Angadha   fought  with  all the three  ,
And the devas   praised  Angadha at that time.

Kandu nilkkum  Vayu puthranum  Nelanum,
Mandio vannasu thunachar   athu neram,
Maruthi konnithu   DEvanthakaneyum,

Vannu porutham Maha parswan   anneram,
Konnu kalanjaan   vrushabhan maha balan ,
Mathnum  unmathanum  marichar  kapi ,
SAthamanmarodu  yethirthu athi sathwaram.

Hanuman  and  Neela who were   seeing this  ,
Ran and came   and helped him at that time  .
Hanuman killed   Devanthaka  ,
The valorous Neela   killed  Mahodhara,
And Hanuman  beheaded  all the,
Heads of  Trisiras  and killed   him.
Maha parswa   came at that time to fight  ,
And the powerful  Vrushabha  killed him,
Matha and Unmatha   also  died,
Fighting    with these  monkey chiefs.

Viswaika   veeran Athikayan  anneram,

Yudhathinnai   cheru jnan oliyum ittu,
Nakthanjara sreshta puthran aduthappol,
NIlkaruthanju   bhayappettu  vanara rokke ,
Val pongichu   mandi thudanginnar  .

The universal hero Athikaya  at that time,
Riding on a chariot drawn by one thousand horses,
Which was full of weapons  , and  wearing a   bow,
With  expertise in arrows and with great  pride  ,
Made   a small twang   signaling readiness  for war  ,
And when the son of  king of Rakshasas came near  ,
Unable to stand because   of fear   all  the monkeys,
Lifted   their tails    and started   running.

SAmarthyam   yere ulloru  athikayane  ,

Andhanai   Soumithri nilkunnathu neram,
Marutha devanum manushanai vannu  ,
SAranaam   Soumithriyodu  cholledinaan.

Lakshmana went    and fought   with,
Athikaya    who was greatly clever  .
When all the arrows of  Lakshmana reached  there  ,
They turned back    and fell down ,
Becoming thoughtful  and not knowing what to do,
When Lakshmana   was standing like   a blind man,
The wind God took the form of a man,
And told    the  great Lakshmana as follows.

“Pandu virinchan  koduthoru  kanchukam,
Undathu  kondu  ivannu yelkilla  ayudham.
Dharmathe  rakshichu kolluvaan    innu ini ,
Brahmasthram yeythu   ivan thanne vadhikka nee.
Pinne ninnal vadhikka  pedum Indra jithu  ,
Unnathanaaya   dasasanan thanneyum,
Konnu palikkum  Jagathrayam   Raghavan,
Yennu  paranju maranju  sameeranan.

Long ago    Lord Brahma   has   given him  a chain mail  shirt,
And because of that no weapon will  strike him,
To protect Dharma  today ,   you  ,
Send a Brahmasthra   and kill him .
Later   you would kill Indrajith ,
And that   great   Ravana  would be ,
Killed by Rama  and he would protect the world,
Saying this    that  wind god disappeared.

Lakshmananum   nija poorvajan   than padam,

AAmayam poondu  seshicha raksho ganam,
Ravananodu ariyichar   avasthakal,
Haa, Vidhi yennalari   Dasakandanum.

Lakshmana     then fixed the name his brother  in his mind,
And sent   the Brahmastra  and that  immediately  ,
Cut off  Athikaya’s neck  and his head,
Fell on the ground at    that   time  ,
And with great joy all the  monkeys   took it,
And placed   it before Rama  and saluted    him,
Fear stuck   the remaining   Rakshasas ,
Went and told the facts to Ravana,who cried,
Oh  , this is   fate , shouted he.

6.19 Indrajithinde  Vijayam

Victory of Indrajit

Sons ,  younger brothers , nephews,
Very bold   army commanders,
Ministers , all of them  who were
Dear to me  have died, Oh Shiva, Oh God,
Why should now  good things happen?
When he was wailing like this ,
Indrajit   went  and saluted   his father.

Khedam undakaruthu   yethume manase ,

You should    not have  any sorrow in your mind,
AS long as   I am     alive  ,
I would kill  all the    enemies    and come ,
And so please relax  here without  any  worries
And also bless  me to win the war.”
Hearing that  Ravana hugged his son,
Please  go and return with  victory.
The great son again saluted his father  ,
And along with his army    started  marching.

Shambhu  prasadam   varuthuvanai chennu  ,

With an intention of pleasing Lord Shiva,
Indrajit entered   the place called Nikumbila,
After  collecting the materials   for fire sacrifice  ,
He started   the offering in fire    at  that   time,
Wearing a red flower colour cloth  garland   and
Also applying   sandal paste    in his body,
With devotion he raised   the fire  ,
With an intention  of increasing his power.
That son of the   king of Rakshasas,
Chanting clear chants   with correct colour and   intonation,
And after   completing the    proper Karmas ,
Speedily by the grace   of  fire god,
He got weapons   arrows , bows and chariots,
And  also getting the technique of disappearing,
Without any worry   completed   the fire offering  ,
And started for a  war    with Rama   and others.

When he entered the battle field   , the monkeys  ,
Fighting with Rakshasas and were shouting and stoping them,
Megha Nadha  started sending the arrows,
Like a torrential    rain at   all of them,
With stone  , trees  and mountains,
Those    very terrible monkeys ,
Started  very  badly beating him.
The elephant  , horses, marching as well  the chariot soldiers,
Were sent to the place of God of death,
And seeing that their ends were nearing   that son of Ravana,
With sorrow disappeared   from there ,
And went on   sending the collection of Brahmastra    at them.

The trees started burning and falling down,
And monkeys   also started   falling ,
And on the bodies   of the great monkeys,
Fifty, hundred , two hundred and five hundred
Arrows fell splitting their bodies again and again,
With   shivering and fear they fainted and started  falling.

Like this  the   sixty seven   crores of,
Monkey chiefs    fell   dead on earth,
And so did  twenty seven  vellam* of monkeys.,
After   Sugreeva   the son of Sun God fell,
When The devas   told among themselves ,
Now nothing more can be    done 
And  were standing  greatly   worried,
With vengeance  Megha Nada, the great warrior
 Sent an arrow   and made  Rama fall down,
And the world was drowned in sorrow  and became  immobile ,
And for the victory of   the Lord of Rakshasas,
The enemy of Indra    blew   his conch,
And went  inside city of Lanka   and stayed there,
And   the  deva society   were drowned in great sorrow.

Vibheeshana   the son of Kaikasi ,
The very wise man and a great devotee,
Thinking that he would avoid danger  in future  ,
Stayed   away from the   battle field.
With a light of a burning stick ,
He was searching   for those  who were alive,
Among those    who were  lying there ,
And travelled  to various parts.
At that time the very powerful  Hanuman,
Thinking that  he has to search and find out,
Who is available to help him,
Was searching   for the live persons  ,
Among the   monkeys who were  lying there ,
Was walking alone    a nd   then ,
He Saw  Vibheeshana   the devotee  of Rama.

Recognizing each other  and becoming sad  ,
Those pure people    walked   further.
Jambhavan the son of he who was born out of a lotus ,
Due to the blessing of his father   , waked up  from the swoon.
And   when he was not able    to open his eyes,
Vibheeshana approached   him and asked ,
“Oh monkey ,  are you alive  , if so,
Are you able to recognize   me?”

“Kannu mizhichu koodaa , rudiram kondu,

“I am not able to open my eyes  due to blood ,
Hearing your voice    I  have  a feeling,
That you are   Vibheeshana,   the king of Rakshasas,
Please   tell me    the real truth.”
“True  , I am Vibheeshana  , myself ,
That  is the truth”,  Hearing that   he again told,
“You are having consciousness,
It is necessary to   do a great search,
To find out if our   Hanuman is alive  ,
Among  all the monkeys  , who have died,
Hit by the   arrows   of Meghanadha,”

Chodhichasu  Vibheeshanan “Yenthedo,

Avar   yevarilum viseshichu   nee,

Then  Vibheeshana   asked  , Why ,
This special affection to the son of wind God,
Especially  when  Rama, Lakshmana, Sugreeva   and Angadha,
Are   there ? Why did you ask    about Hanuman?
Why are   you worried  about him more?”

“Yengilo kelkka nee   , Maruthiyundengil,

“Then please hear, If Hanuman is there ,
There is no sorrow  for   anyone else , please know,
If the son of wind God has    died,
Then no one is there and all are equal to dead.”
Hearing these    words   of  son of Brahma,
Hanuman respected   him  well,
“I am here . I am not dead” saying this,
With joy   he fell   at the feet of Jambhavan.

Jambhavan hugged  Hanuman tighly  ,
Smelled    his head  and then told,
“There is nobody except you   who  can
Bring back to life    all the monkeys,
As well as   both the Raghavas,.
You have to go even beyond Himalayas,
More distance   till the Kailasa  mountain,
Before Kailasa    on the Vrushabhadri mountain,
Please  know that   the divine  medicines   exist.,”

I will tell my friend, is the Mrutha Sanjeevani ,
You will find two peaks  standing out,
And these  medicines   are standing in between them.”

All these   medicines have the shine of the sun,
Understand   that they are  a form of Vedas,
Crossing the sea  ,  forests  , mountains,
Pretty rivers  , countries,
Come near   here   along with the medicine,
Oh son of wind God  , without any delay.”
Hearing these words  of the son of Brahma,
Saluting with devotion, Hanuman climbed  the Mahendra  mountain.

Hanuman grew as tall as  Meru mountain,
Crossed the sea , many great mountains,
And  without any doubt    shouted  in such a way,
That Lanka as well as the Rakshasas there ,
Started   shivering , and with  a speed of wind,
He jumped    and went up the sky  ,
And he who went  crossed Himalayas,
Crossed place of Brahma ,mountain of Shiva,
Crossed the Dara river , Alakapuri the place  of Kubhera,
And saw  The Meru mountain as well as Rishabhadri ,
And he saw   them with great   wonder.

The great Spies   of Ravana   when  they,
Came to know that Hanuman has  gone ,
For the medicines   , without any one knowing,
Went   and told about it to   the king of Rakshasas.
Hearing the    words   of the spies , Ravana ,
For some time thought   about it ,
And after   some  time being thoughtful,
Started    from his   inner house   at night,
Without any one accompanying him,
Reached    the house   of Kalanemi(His uncle),
And seeing him Kalanemi was greatly surprised,
With great joy  and fear  saluted him,
Hospitably treated  him and asked,
“What is the reason   for coming here ,
Before sun rise   and that  too,
Without any  one accompanying you ?

Dukha nipeedinakiya   Ravanan,

“Yikkala   vaibhavam yenthu chollavathum,

Ravana  who was  affected   by sorrow  addressing Kalanemi told,
“What shall I tell about present times?
I came to tell   everything to you.
Due to being hit by my Shakthi ,
The powerful Lakshmana   fell on the floor,
And later my son using   the Brahmasthra ,
Killed all the  monkeys as well as the kings,
And left them to die in the battelefield,
He also arranged to play the victory Drum.”

To bring them  back to life  the son ,
Of Wind God   has  gone for a  medicine  .
You have   to go and create  any obstacle for that,
And I will also tell you a trick,
You go  in the  middle of his way as a sage  ,
And tell him    about how  we can destroy sins  ,
And by attracting him like that   ,
Somehow   create a delay for him.”

Hearing these   base   words , Kalanemi,
Told Ravana as follows,
“Expert in Sama Veda, Know all , king of Lanka,
Please hear   my words   which are peaceful,
Definitely I do not have any hesitation,
To die    for you   at this   time.
I do not have   any doubts ,
About dying   like Maricha,,”

You go and    return   Sita to Rama,
And give your kingdom to your brother ,
And become a sage   and live in the forest,
And daily   with extreme purity of mind  ,
Get up   very early   in the dawn,
And see   the sun rise    with great devotion,
Then complete    the worship of dawn,
Sit  comfortably  in a lonely place   , become contented,
Leave out attachments   to everything ,
Bring to control  all the five sense organs,
See  in your mind the   soul of souls,

The cause for creation, upkeep   and destruction,
Of    the    tree   of the universes,
Is the illusion which    also gives  rise,
To bodies   of copper  , white and black colour.
Passion  and anger    are   her sons,
Attachment   and cruelty   are   her daughters,
She would  attract   the soul  , through  her properties,
And make   it in to  hers.

Dedicating  the role of doer   and consumer  ,
Daily   to  the soul which is itself God,
And making him, her own  she ,
Constantly   plays    with him,
The pure , divine  , single  soul,
Is seen externally   united   with  her,
And due to her characteristic,
We  tend   to forget  our  own soul.

If    he were    taught   by    a  Guru(teacher)
Who himself   is   the pure form of wisdom,
He would get   rid of the attachments by sense organs,
And  would be able   to see  clearly    always see the soul,
And he would get  all that he wants,
And seeing the natural  characteristics,
He would get salvation by being detached  with the body,
You also think  always of your  soul,
Get freedom from the clutches  of illusion,
And   understand that  soul  is different from nature  ,
And live   without desires , winning over passion,
And always  live   in deep meditation  ,
And then remember  you will always be joyful.

Suppose you are not able to meditate  ,
Drench the mind    with devotion,
Daily depend   on the God with a form,
With  a  greatly pure mind   always ,
Keep in the  lotus  of your mind, on a golden  platform,
Which is decorated by gems  and which is pure,
Which is polished   , soft   along with Sita ,
Served by Lakshmana  , Rama  holding a  bow and arrow ,
Sitting like a valorous hero , with broad eyes ,
Wearing an yellow silk resembling lightning,
Wearing garland  , crown , armlets, rings,
Gem studded  ear studs, anklets ,
Pretty bangles  , golden belts , Kousthubha gem,
Wearing Lotus garland  and  forest   garland   ,
With  Sri vathsa on his chest , The blessing to Lakshmi,
Vasudeva  , Mukunda  , Janardhana  ,
Who is the divine  god living in the heart of all,
Who is the divine god of all , who is saluted by truth,
Who likes   those  who surrender  to him,
With great  devotion  to the divine soul and   if you meditate  ,
You would get salvation    definitely.

If you spend    all your time   ,
By  reading  or hearing his story  ,
And always chanting   “Rama, Rama”,
How can new  re  births take place,
And definitely the stain   in you,
Which has  been accumulated,
 Would   be completely   destroyed.

Ending your enmity , along with devotion,
You  please  sing about that  God Rama  ,
He is god who is complete  ,   single  ,
And   who is alwaysthere  and  keep that divine form
Of that  Purusha  In your  heart
The one who does not have  a form or name ,
And  who is ancient   and peaceful and is the  God   Rama.

After   hearing the nectar   like words,
That were spoken by  Kalanemi,
The king of Rakshasas became red eyed  with anger,
And took his sword to cut   Kalanemi’s neck and told,
“Now all other   things are   only   after ,
Cutting you, the   rest can be thought of later”,
And then the Rakshasa  Kalanemi,
Thought  of all the fundamentals  and told.

“Raksasa  Raja  , Dushtathman  , Mathi , mathi,
Rookshathaa   bhavam ithu kondu   kim phalam?
Ninnude sasanam   jnan   anustippan,
Athu yennde   sadgathikku yennu darikka nee

“Ok Rakshasa  king, Oh  bad soul  , this is sufficient,
What   is the benefit  of this angry form of yours?
I would obey your   orders,
Please  understand it is for my good,
Without any hesitation , I am prepared ,
To deceive the    person of the form of truth.”

After saying this  , very near  the Himalaya  mountains,
He went and sat in the   garb   of a sage,
A hermitage was seen there due to illusion,
Where he was being served by many sages ,
As well as disciples , people and servants,
Seeing the hermitage of saint there , the son of wind god,
Stood there  thoughtfully , “What   is the basis ,
Of this hermitage  here? I have not seen this earlier,
Has a  some blockade come in my way,
I think this is only   an imagination   of my mind?
I will some how see   the saint quench my thirst,
By some drinks . and I will see the great medicine ,
Which is on the very high  mountain called,
Dronachalam by the blessing of   the great Rama.”

After deciding like this he entered  without any difficulty  ,
One yojana long very big  hermitage of  illusion,
Which had a forest of Plantain, jack fruit. Dates,
Coconut and mango which was complete ,
With a lake   of plenty of fresh water ,
And there  the Rakshasa  Kalanemi .
Was performing the Indra  yaga, as the chief performer,
For getting   the blessings   of Lord Shiva,
And seeing  him living there doing   the worship  of Shiva with devotion,
Hanuman  saluted  that   sage who was   a chief Rakshasa,
And    that  son of wind   God   told him like this.

“Rama dhoothoham  Hanuman ithi  mama,
Namam , pavanjan anjana nandanan,
Ramakaryarthamai  ksheeramburasikku ,
SAmodham innu  pokunnu thaponidhe  ,

Yengume parkarathu yennu yen manogatham.

“I am the   emissary of Rama  , my name  ,
Is Hanuman , I am son of wind   God and Anjana ,
I am going to the ocean of milk  , for the  work,
Of Rama  with joy, oh great sage ,
I came here to protect my body,
I am terribly thirsty   and I want  ,
Some water  to drink , please  tell me  ,
Where  is it available as  I do not,
Want to wait at    any place.”

Maruthi chonnsathu  kettu Nisacharan,
Karunya bhavam nadichu  chollrdinaan,
“Mamakamaya   kamandalu sthalam , jala,

Manava veera  nireekshithar   aakayaal,
Mohavum   thernnu yezhunethithellavarum,

That   Rakshasa  hearing what Hanuman told ,
In a tone which was  mixed with great mercy,
“Please drink as  much water  you want from my water  pot  ,
And after  eating    sweet ripe  fruits,
Throw away your sorrow and sleep for some time,
And do not have   any worries from now on,
I would be able to see  by my divine sight ,
Your  past present  and also the future,,
And since it is very clear  I will tell you  ,
Since the monkeys and Lakshmana  are  ,
Under the  supervision of  the great human hero,
They have all awoken from the trance  ,
And are standing together    for sacrifice .

Tham aakarnya   chonnan kapi pungavan,
“Yethrayum  karunya saliyallo bhavan,
Param peruthu  may daham    athu kondu,
Poraa  kamandalu samsthithamam  jalam.”

 Hearing that   , the great monkey told,
‘You  appear to be most merciful one,
My thirst   is  of very great intensity,
And so the water in your water pot is  ,
Not   sufficient for my need.”

Innu nalloru mathraopadesam  cheyvan.,”

When the son of wind God told this  ,
He sent a Brahmin boy made created by  illusion,
And told him to show  the lake of water ,
And then   Kalanemi told Hanuman,
“Close your eyes   and drink the water  ,
And then reach me back quickly ,
And then   I would teach you a chant,
Which would make it easy for  finding out the divine medicine.”

Hearing that   with belief  ,  Hanuman,
Went along with the Brahmin boy who was sent,
Closing his eyes, and when he reached the bank of   the lake,
And when he was    about to drink the water,
One very big  she crocodile came  ,
And when it was    trying to swallow  the big monkey,
The great monkey opened  his eyes and saw.

Seeing that she crocodile with an  open mouth,
That monkey with his  hands  spilt her   holding to her  mouth,
And she went up  leaving her body,
And that body also appeared  like lightning, wonder of wonders,
 And he saw her in a sacred   aero plane  ,
As a lady with divine form,
And as an Apsara maiden who was   extremely pretty,,
And she told the son of wind God at that time.

Due to your having mercy  , Today ,
I got freedom from my curse , Oh monkey chief,
I was an Apasara  maiden earlier and due to,
The curse  of a sage  I became a Rakshasi,
My name   is Dhanyamala , Oh great one,
Gentle person , you have to understand one thing more,
The sage   that    that you saw  in the holy hermitage  ,
Is a Rakshasa   called  Kalanemi who is a bad one.

Ravana prerithanai, vannirunnavan,

Divya oushadangalum  kondangu chennu ini,
Krvyadha vamsam asesham  odukkuga,
Jnan ini brahma lokathinnu   pokunnu,
Vanara veera , kusalam bhavikka   they.

He has come  here as per the wishes of Ravana,
To create   roadblocks on your way,
That  one who troubles sages  , devas and Brahmins,
Has put on the   garb  of a sage .
Speedily kill that one  throw him away,
 Reach the drona mountain  with great  joy,
And take away the divine  medicines,
And completely destroy the Rakshasa   clan,
I  am now going to the land of Brahma,
Oh monkey warrior   good luck and health to you.

Poyaal eevannam paranjaval, Maruthi,

After she went away  , Hanuman,
Went   to Kalanemi the magician,
And that Rakshasa   told him,
“Why this delay in coming back?
Do not waste more time and come to me,
I would now teach you the   root chant,
And then you salute me and give my fees,
And then you would become an expert.”
Immediately   that  monkey chief  moved his ,
Strong fist speedily towards  the head of Rakshasa   chief,
And beat   him once with that, and he  ,
Went   and reached  the place of God of death.

After  saluting the ocean of milk  and the Drona mountain,
Hanuman also saluted  Vrushabadri , the home of medicines,
But he could not see  any medicine   there,
Becoming angry because he was not able  to see,
He uprooted the mountain, holding it like the  moon,
With love he placed   it before   Rama,
And put an end   to the problem of the army.

Sri  Rama became    very happy  ,
And  Lord Shiva   was also happy Because of that,
And when the wind of the medecine touched them,
Every one   got up because  the ill was lifted off,
“ Without any doubt  This mountain  has to be ,
Placed  wherever it was otherwise ,
How can we  kill the Rakshasas.”
As soon as it was told by him,
Hanuman took the mountain and rose up,
And  within half a minute he came back.
Because  as per the orders  of the Rakshasa king ,
The corpses  of the dear Rakshasa  soldiers,
Were  daily put in the  sea, none of them came alive.

The Raghavas   and the great monkey warriors ,
Left off their sorrow   and started becoming normal,
Sugreeva and Angadha    told    the monkey chiefs,
“No monkey now should be outside the city,
All cross in , break its walls, keep fire in all houses ,
Go on cutting  all trees one by one ,
Fill up the   wells and lakes, level up  ,
The moats   and towers  and gates ,
Almost all the Rakshasas have been subdued,
And if there   are courageous one left among them,
Being baked in fire   they will come out  ,
Send them immediately   to the land of God of death.”

Hearing that  , along with burning   wooden sticks ,
They entered and started setting fire  to one by one ,
The homes towers  , mansions , simple dwellings,
And Black lead  , gold  , silver   and   copper,
Armories  , ornaments  , places where  fire sacrifice  is conducted ,
Bath rooms , groups  of elephants  and horses,
Chariots started   burning and becoming ash.

The Rakshasa  ladies being burnt and  started running,
And   with increasing pain died one after  other,
And Sri Rama belonging to the clan  of the sun god,
Rained  sharp and pointed arrows at them,
And told  that   the victory  of the enemy of Indra ,
Was really surprising  and unexpected ,
And   the sound of the shouting of   the Rakshasas,
The sound of the cry   of the   Rakshasa  ladies,
The sound of the twanging of the bow   of the king among men,
The sound and shouting of elephants   that were being burnt,
The sound of the monkeys   standing and shouting  ,
And the sound of the very pitiable   horses ,
Went on   filling and echoing   the   surroundings,
  And being greatly worried   the valorous ten headed one ,
Immediately   told Kumbha  , the elder  of the sons,
Of KUmbakarna    to go to the war.

His  younger   brother  Nikumba   at that time,
Saying I would be first   started immediately,
Kumbha  , Prajanga , the great  Yoopaksha ,
And SAnithaksha  with a great army  ,
Also started for the war     and with great mirth ,
The   monkey warriors also neared  them.

Shouting at night   and then coming near  and fighting  ,
The Rakshasas were   dying   in large numbers  ,
And the monkeys were    getting their bodies split ,
By    the very sharp  arrows   and weapons and
Were  falling  on the ground   and also ,
BY catching  beating   hitting biting and powdering  ,
And becoming angry  were uprooting trees ,
And shouting that by trees   we would not be defeated ,
The Rakshasa  monkey  fighting  was going on,
And  acting that  they were all proud ,
They were   sacrificing    their body,

After   about   two hours   were past,
Several  Rakshasas went to the place of God of death.
At that   time a Rakshasa called Kambana  ,
Came to  attack with force  and  many monkeys,
Died because   of the hit of arrows from him.
At that time   Angadha(the son of the son  of enemy of Jamba)   got angry
Seeing that they were   destroying without any sense ,
And  after   he killed   Kambana ,
Following him   neared  three asuras called,
Prajangana  , Yoopaksha   and sonitha nethra.,
And Angadha getting angry neared them,
And fighting with those   three  Rakshasas,
The son of Bali became   very tired.

Mainda    and Vividha   at that  time,
 Came near    and joined the fight  ,
The son of Thara  killed  Prajangana,
And similarly the very strong Vividha ,
Killed  the Rakshasa  called   Sonithanethra,
And Mainda   killed   Yoopaksha,
After   those four Rakshasas
Entered   the    world    of death,
Kumbha came near    and started  showering arrows,
 And those powerful monkeys ran away.

Sugreeva then jumped   on his chariot  ,
Fell there   and with fierceness broke his bow,
And when they were   doing fist fight  ,
Suddenly Sugreeva threw  Kumbha in to the ocean,
And after   churning the ocean   the very fierce Kumbha,
Came   out of the ocean climbing,
And seeing that , the son of Sun God  became angry,
And sent him to the place of   the son of Sun god(Yama-the god of death.)

When Sugreeva  killed his elder   brother,
The very powerful Nikhumbha  along with a iron pestle,
Like   Lord Shiva at the time of destruction,
Neared  making a sound   of a lion,
Hanuman  replaced    Sugreeva  ,
And immediately opposed  NIkhumbha from near by,
NIkumbha   with the iron pestle beat on the chest of Hanuman,
And that  iron pestle broke in to pieces   and fell on the floor,
And the son of  the  life breath of    the world,
Becoming very angry took away Nikhumbha’s   head and threw  it.

The remaining Rakshasas  fled out of fear,
And   the monkey warriors   followed and neared   them,
And entering Lanka they started   breaking it,
And this news was   informed to the  king of Lanka,
And hearing about the death  of Kumbha   and others,
That enemy   of Indra   became very scared.

Then  addressing  Makaraksha    the son of Khara  ,
With very great anger   the ten faced one told,
“You please    go and win over   Rama and others,
And come back “  and hearing that  Makaraksha  ,
Along with his army   started and ,
With preparation     neared the   battle field.

He showered   snake   like arrows,
In the form of   flames   of fire,
And the scared  monkeys   not able to stand,
Went and requested protection from Lord  Rama,
And that Ramachandra  as soon as he heard it,
Positioned   the  bow and twanged it  ,
And  shouting stop , to the   best among archers,
And     showered   arrows   at him.

For each arrow  Makaraksha sent another arrow  ,
And the body of the lotus eyed one was wounded,
And when they were   fighting with each other,
The son of Khara    became   little    tired,
And then  Rama   cut off   his  flag,  umbrella and horse,
And   the bow   that  he was having  in his hand,
And also powdered    his chariot   and also ,
Killed   his charioteer  at that time,
Using the pavakasthra   he cut off  the head,
 Of Makraksha    who jumped on earth,
And was approaching him with   a   trident.
And this way he reduced   the danger to the devas.

Indrajit who came to know of this became angry,
Drove away all those who came to inform this,
And informed    Ravana   about it,
And hearing that    Ravana was the  the death of all devas ,
Started   along   with his assistants  ,
Making the fourteen words   shiver.

Seeing   that   his son Indrajit,
Bowed   to both  of his  feet  and said,
“” Now   I will kill all the enemies ,
And remove the   sorrow from your mind,
You retire to the private quarters and be there ,
And you should not have any sorrow because of this. “
Saying this    he saluted   his father  ,
And that Indrajit   started    for the war.

Brahmasthram yeythu  nisacharanmar  ,
Unmoola    nasam varuthuka    sathwaram.”

Seeing the preparations for war  , Lakshmana ,
Went to Sri Rama      and told him,
“Daily hiding himself  this son of Ravana,
Kills us and the monkeys sending arrows.
How long should we tolerate   it?
Let us send   Brahmasthra   and completely ,
Destroy   the clan of the    Rakshasas.”

Soumithri    chonna vakku  ingane  kettu adha,

Jnan ivanodu  por cheyvan   yellavarum,
Dheenatha yenniye    kandu ninneduvin.”

Hearing    the words   of Lakshmana  ,
That   God Rama Bhadra      told as follows,
“ In a war  We should  not   use  Brahmasthra  against,
Those who are   running  away from the battle,
Those who have lost their weapons  ,
Those who do not come in front of us ,
And those who out of fear   come and fall at our feet,
If we do it , it is a sin for every person,
I will do war against him   and all  of you,
Without  any fear   see  what  I do.”

Saying this   when he twanged his bow  ,
And was   standing ready     for the battle  ,
Indrajit  thought and ordered  , went,
Inside the    city of Lanka  , kept a  illusory  Sita,
In the chariot and came out of the western  gate .
All the monkeys stood without moving at that time,
And seeing the illusory Sita in the chariot they   felt sad,
And because   of it    Hanuman also got worried.

While all the monkey warriors were  looking,
He cut the head of Sita without   any mercy,
And she   with an open mouth entreated , ,
“alas  , Lord Rama  , Rama  “, The blood spread  ,
And seeing that Hanuman thought,
Further war   will not have any  shine,
And Oh God what   thing can be more dangerous than this,
Let us retreat now    and we have   to inform,
Our lord about the death of Sita urgently.,

Nee koode  yangu chenneduga sathwaram,

Seeing the sad   Hanuman     going   behind,
All the   monkey chiefs  Rama   told,
Jambhavan    with   worry,
“ Why is Hanuman coming here  ?
He is not one who shows his back in the battle.
You please   go there   urgently  ,
Oh  son of Brahma , we should not see   anything.”

Itham aakarnya   vidhi suthanam  kapi-

Hearing this jambhavan  went  along ,
With the other monkey chiefs and asked lightly,
“Why did you  retreat from the battle,
What  is the reason, you go back there  itself.”
And at  that  time  Hanuman told him,
“I am not retreating because of fear,
There  some thing   happened  and,
I have  to tel it to the Lord of the universe.
You also please  come along   with me.”
And immediately Hanuman  went along with Jambhavan,
And after   saluting   Rama , told him,
About  the news of destroying of Sita.”

Rama fell  on the ground and swooned,
And Lakshmana   at that time  , took ,
His head and kept it on his lap,
And his feet was  kept in his lap by Hanuman,
 And seeing that  the entire monkeys  ,
Stood complexly numb  and Lakshmana,
Started  telling them   words of consolation,
And Vibheeshana   wondering in his mind ,
The reason for this unusual   sound   came there,
And  when he asked   Lakshmana  told him,
About   the news that   was told  by Hanuman.

Vibheeshgana clapped his hand and laughed,
“Alas, Oh lord   what do these  monkeys know,
There  is no one in the   three  worlds,
Who can kill  the goddess  of the world.
Indrajit  is an expert  in magic and please hear,
Why he   did this now ?
He wanted to go to Nikumbila   and do,
Fire sacrifice there  without  being troubled by monkeys,
This trick  of his to go to Nikumbila is indeed wonderful,
We have to go there  and stop this fire sacrifice,
Otherwise  nobody  can kill him.”

“Oh Rama  , Oh God, victory, victory,
Oh treasure of mercy , get up after  leaving out all  sorrow,
Me  , Lakshmana    and the monkey clan chiefs  ,
Would   go together  ,  without wasting any time  ,
Please   give us permission to go”  said  Vibheeshana,
And hearing that   and   getting out of the  sorrow,
That king   gave  all of them permission to go  ,
And  That Rama understanding the real   facts  ,
Became very     happy   and blessed,
His brother  ,  the brother of the king of Rakshasas,
 As well   as    all the monkeys   and  asked them,
To go and kill   the son of the ten headed one  and return.

Lakshmananodu  Maha kapi senayum,

That   time   The  Rakshasa   chief   and the monkey army,
Walked   along  With   Lakshmana,
Mainda, Vividha  , Sushena, Nala, Neela,
The grandson of Indra  , kesari and Thara ,
Soora  , Vrushabha,  Sarabha ,  vinatha,
Veera,  Panasa  , Kumudha   and  Vikata,

Jyothirmukha , Sumukha , Bali pungava,
Swetha  Dadhi mukha, Agni mukha, Gaja,
Medura ,  Dhooma , Gavaya and  Gavaksha,
And many other   famous monkeys .

Munnil nadannu  Vibheeshanan thanumai,
Chennu NIkmbila  pukku  niranjithu  ,

Pathalare  chethakathi ozhinjennu,
Kalpichu  RAvani  villum sarangalum,
Kelpodu yeduthu  porinnu adutheedinaan.

In the front   Vibheeshana walked  ,
And they   went to Nikumbila    and filled it,
And when they completely surrounded   the Rakshasas,
Indrajith stooped for a moment and started the Homa  again,
And the monkeys carrying    stones, trees and mountains  ,
And neared    that place   and the Rakshasa  soldiers,
Started falling one by one  and ,
Understanding that   he cannot complete   the Homa,
And thinking  that   it can be started  again afterwards,
Indrajit  took   the bow   and arrows   and started  the war.

Mumbil  vegam poondu adutha   Marutha-, 
Sambhavan   thanne thaduthu nirthedinaan,

Marutha nandanan    thannodu kopichu ,
Nerittu  vannathu kandeele   Bhavan?
Mruthyu   samayam   aduthathu   ivan ini,
Yudham thudanguga , vaikarathu yethume”

Then the     son of the ten faced   one
After  coming  on the platform at Nikumbila ,
Stopped   the son of wind God  ,
Who speedily came   near   to him,
And Vibheeshana saw Lakshmana ,
And told him  after   removing his worry,
“Hey valorous one  , if he has not completed the Homa,
He    cannot certainly be able   to be seen in light,
Did you not see  him come  in person,
After   getting angry   on the son of wind god?
It indicates   that the time  of his death is near  ,
And so start the war , without delay.”

Itham Vibheeshanan chonna nerathu  ,

At the time    that   was specified  by  Vibheeshana,
Lakshmana also sent arrows    and other weapons,
And Indrajit stopped    them by proper arrows and weapons,
And   he also   sent  very powerful   arrows,
At that time Lakshmana    was lifted ,
On to his shoulder    by Hanuman with love  ,
And seeing Vibheeshana who was near  Lakshmana  ,
The son of   the ten faced one  told immediately.

“Rakshasa jathiyil  vannu piranna nee ,
Sakshaal  pithruvyan  allo  mama kevalam,
Puthra mithradhi   vargathe yodukkuvaan,
SAthru janathinnu   bruthyanai ingane  ,

SAdhyamakunnathu   yennallo budha matham,
SAsthrajnaam   nee kulathe yodukkuvaan,
AAsthyaa  vela cheyyunnathu   adbutham.”

“You were born in the   caste of Rakshasas,
And unfortunately you  are   the brother  of my father,
When we think about   your working like a servant  ,
To our enemies  for the sake  of destroying,
Our friends   and   sons and their   families,
Wecan only tell “good”, Good”  and nothing else ,
To those   who  lead to the destruction of their own clan,
There is definitely no salvation   as far as  we know and see,
For the travel to the higher   worlds   is made possible 
Due to our children say the learned   ones ,
You who  are a great thinker   are  working,
For destruction   of your own clan,  great surprise.”

Yennathu kettu  Vibheeshanan chollinaan,
“ Nannu  neeyum  nin pithavum ariga nee,
Vamsam  mudikkunnathinnu   neeyethume  ,
SAmsayamilla  vicharikka manase  ,
Vamsathe   rakshichu  koluvan innu  ,
Jnan   amsumali  kula nayakanugrahaal.”

Hearing that   Vibheeshana    told  ,
“Good, you and your father   should know   ,
That   the clan is being  destroyed by you both  .
There is no doubt about it  in  my mind,
I  would be able    to protect   our clan,
Due   to the blessing of   Lord   Rama.”

Ingane thammil  paranju  nilkkunneram,

Kanadathille   nee Kumara  , Viseshichum?
Kandu kolga    aallaigil innu    jnan nin udal,
KOndu   janthukkalkku bhakshanam aakuvaan.”

When they were   talking like this,
Lakshmana went on spraying  arrows non stop,
And he     cut of all those   by sending suitable arrows,
And he then told   Lakshmana    as follows,
“Lad   , have you not   seen the power
Of my hand on two days  , specially ?
Know about that   or otherwise  today ,
I will  make you food suitable for beasts.”

Itham  paranjezhu   banangal   kondu,

Lakshmanan   thooginaan   sakrari meni mel,
Vrutharijithum    sara sahasrena   ,
Soumithri   kavacham   nurukkiyitteedinnaan.

After saying this    with seven arrows  ,
He wounded   the body of Lakshmana,
And with  ten arrows   he wounded   Hanuman,
And with one hundred arrows he wounded  Vibheeshana,
And the monkey warrior   was greatly wounded and retreated ,
And Lakshmana immediately   started   sending   ,
Arrows    on    the   enemy   of  Indra,
And that    Indrajit  with one thousand   arrows,
Broke   in to pieces   the armour  of Lakshmana.

RAkthabishiktha    sareerikal   aayithu ,

Param aduthanchu  banam prayogichu,
Therum podichu   kuthirakale konnu ,
SAradhi thande  thalayum  murichathi ,
SAramayoru     villum  muricheedinaan.

The body of Rakshasa   and son of Sumithra,
 Was completely   drenched    in blood,
And then he sent   another   five  arrows,
Powdered his chariot  , killed   his horses ,
Cut of the head of his charioteer ,
And also cut off his    very great   bow.

Mathoru   chapam yeduthu   kulachavan,

AArum arinjeela  poyahthum vannathum,

He  made   another    bow ready  ,
And sprayed   endless  number of arrows,
But he sent   three  arrows   and cut of his bow,
And  that  king, the  son of the ten necked one  ,
Took another   very big bow    and made it ready,
 Went on sending several   arrows ,
That son of Ravana  immediately went
Inside  Lanka and came   very speedily  out,
And nobody knew about his going or returning  ,
And sage Narada     appreciated   that.

Itham palarum   prasamsichu   nilpathin ,
madhye  divasa  thrayam    kazhinju   brusam.

Watching the very ferocious    war  in between them,
Brahma and other devas    said,
“Till now     a  war like this has never happened,
And a war will like this   will not happen again,
See, are there   valorous   men ,
Like   these   in this world like these two,”
Like this many people   were praising ,
And in between  three  days passed speedily.

After   the   expiry     of three  days,
Lakshmana    took  the  Indrasthra,
And gently  tied it   with his hand  ,
And meditated on Rama   in his mind  ,
And   after some  thought    sent  that  arrow,
And that went  and cut off the neck of  Indrajit,
Went and    dipped itself in sea    and after  becoming clean,
And    that arrow  went   in to    his   quiver .
The body of Indrajit fell on the ground,
And the sorrow  came  to an end   for all the three  worlds,
And the devas  became    extremely   happy ,
And  started   praying   Lakshmana.

Pushpangalum   varshichaar  udan,

Thapasanmarum  gagana charanmarum ,
Dundubi nadavum    ghoshithetham,
AAnadhichasu  virinchanum   anneram.

They showered    flowers   and then,
Apsara  ladies     started  dancing ,
And the thousand eyes of Indra   became bright  ,
And that  Indra became    greatly  happy,
The saints and devas  started  praising   ,
Him after   their problems   came to an end ,
And sound of Dhundhubi drums     rose   up,
And Lord Brahma   also  became very happy.

SAnkha viheenam   cheru jnan oli yittu  ,
SAnkhum vilichudan  Simha nadam cheythu,

Ravanan thanum   marichan ariga nee ,
Krudhanai    nammodu   yudhathinai  varum  ,
Puthra   sokathalini   Dasagreevanum.”

Without any doubt  he gave a small twang using his bow,
Blew the conch and    roared   like a lion,
And Lakshmana along with   the monkeys speedily,
Went   and saluted   the king of man’s   lotus like feet,
Rama hugged   him tightly  ,
And with great joy   smelled his head ,
And laughingly    told   Lakshmana,
“The job done by you is extremely difficult  ,
Know that  Ravana   is also dead  ,
Because   Indrajit   has   died,
And that   ten faced one   would  come ,
For war with us now due  to great anger.”

6.24 Ravana Vilapam

Wailing  of Ravana

Itham anyonyam   paranjirikkum neram,
Puthran marichathu   kettoru Ravanan,
Veenithu   bhoomiyil   moham karnnu   athi,
Ksheenanai   , pinne Vilapam thudanginaan,
“Ha, ha Kumara, Mandodhari Nandana,

Innu  nannai urangeedumarayithu,
Nammeyum  pedi yillarkkum    ini mama ,
Janmavum   nishphalamai   vannatheeswara.”

When they were  talking to each other  like this,
Ravana heard  about the death   of his son,
He fell   on the ground    and swooned ,
And being greatly tired he started   wailing,
“ Ha, Ha, lad , son of Mandodhari,
Ha, Ha  , pretty one , hero  , handsome one,
What shall  I tell about the ills of my Karma,
When shall  I forget this sorrow from my mind,
The devas,   Brahmins    and sages ,
Would sleep extremely well today  ,
And no one   will  be afraid of us ,
And oh god, my life   has become extremely useless.”

Puthra gunangal  paranjum  niroopichum,

Gadgam  ongi   chirichu alari thathra  ,
NIgamicheedinan   krudhanaam   Ravanan.

Recounting the good qualities   of his great son,
And   when his sorrow became great  ,he started   crying,
“The reason  for the death of my son is   Sita.
And because   of that   my sorrow will never  end,
Unless   I kill her    and drink her    blood “
Saying this with open sword  , laughing , shouting  ,
And with very great anger   he  went   there.

Sithayum   dushtanaam Ravanane   kandu,

Seeing the    very   bad    Ravana, Sita,
Became extremely scared  and  with a shaking body,
Went on chanting Rama,   Rama , Rama,
And   while she was  in the stage of waiting,
Suparswa* who was intelligent, diplomat ,
Very good  , a   good Rakshasa , one of good conduct,
Stopped  Ravana   and   said to him,
All the just things that   can be told.
        *Brother  of Prahastha.

You  are  one  born   in the Brahmin caste  ,
Who is agreed as pure by all the three  worlds,
And even Lord Subramanya and   Adisesha,
Would not be   able to describe   your good qualities,
You are  one   of the chief    devotees  of Shiva,
Who is the   god of gods   and enemy of Tripura,
Your brother  Khubera   who is from Paulasthya clan,
Is one  saluted  by the three worlds ,
And is the chief   of blessed  people
You are an expert in Sama veda  ,
And one    who is the temple of all knowledge  ,
You are  one who is  as great as  sage Vama deva  ,
You have   won the control over  your senses,
You are  one learning Vedas, observing bath and penance,
You are   wise , disciple of sage Shukra   and one with humility.

Yennirikke   bhavan innu   yudhanthare  ,

When it is like this  , what you  told,
Today after   the war is good , very good,
But your attempting    to kill a lady  ,
Is something which will increase your bad fame,
Oh great   king of the Rakshasas,  Oh lord,
Please   come along    with me  for the war ,
After  killing all   the monkeys   and  men,
By doing a war with great respect ,
Please    do   take Sita to yourself,
And   remove all the pain in the mind.

Sishtrayulla  nisacharanmaarumai,
Pushtarosham  purapettithu   porinai.

Hearing the words   of the just Suparswa,
The king of Rakshasas  became contended  ,
And went and sat in the  main chamber of meeting,
And  after   discussing    with his ministers,
Started   for the war  with great  enthusiasm ,
Along with     the   remaining   Rakshasas.

Chennu Rakshobalam Ramanodu  yethalavu,

Bheeruvai   Lankapuram  pukkanantharam.

The   powerful army   of Rakshasas went  ,
And fought with Rama    and he killed   all of them,
And then Ravana  fought    with that king,
He   fought without  interval  and without fear  ,
And then Rama shooting arrows after   arrows,
Made    the body of Ravana into pieces ,
And then being wounded   , tired and disoriented,
Leaving out his courage   the ten faced one retreated,
Thinking that   this war  is sufficient ,
He went back to the city of Lanka as   a coward.

6.25  Ravanande  Homa vignam

The stoppage of Homa of Ravana.


Shukrane chennu   namaskarichu yethrayum,
Shushka vadananai    ninnu cholledinaan,
“Arkathmajadhiyaam   markata veerarum,

Okke odukki   jnan yekaki yayithu ,
Dukhavum   ulkondirikku marayithu  ,
Sadguro  , jnan thava  sishyanallo  Vibho”

Ravana  went    and saluted    sage Shukra   ,
And with very dried up   face   told,
“The monkeys lead by the son of Sun God,
And Rama   belonging to the clan of the Sun,
Have come together , crossed the ocean,
Reached    the city of Lanka  and killed ,
All Rakshasas  who are enemies of Indra  ,
And today   I have become all   alone,
Completely filled by sorrow in my mind,
Oh good teacher  , Oh lord, am I not your disciple.

Vijnaniyakiya   Ravananal ithi  ,
Vijnapithanaya   Shukramaha muni  ,
Ravananodu  upadesichahtu, “yengil  nee ,

THollkkum  prakaram  athi Rahasya sthale ,
Chennirunnasu  nee  Homam thudanguka ,
Vannu koodum    jayam ennal ninakkedaa.”

To the very intelligent     Ravana  ,
The great sage Shukra    who was thus requested,
Advised  “if so you  have to please the devas ,
You construct   a cave   with great speed,
And sit   In a very secret place  and conduct a Homa,
For   getting your enemies    defeated ,
And if you do so, victory  would    come to  you.”

Vighnam varathe  kazhinju  koodunnnakil  ,

If you are able to do it without any  roadblocks,
From the   pit of fire    will emerge,
Arrow, quiver , bow  , horses   and chariots,
And once you get it even devas   cannot win over you.
Please  take the root chant    from me ,
And   without any doubt  please   conduct the  Homa,”
Then after  learning the root chant from the great sage Shukra,
That   Ravana  who  is the chief    of all Rakshasas,
Constructed    inside    his house   a cave  ,
Which was like the land of  snakes.

Divyamam   havya  gavyadhi   homaya ,
SAdravyangal sampadhichu  kondavan,
Lanka pura dwaramokke   bandhichathil,
Sanka viheenam akam pukku  shuddhanai  ,
Dhyanam urappichu  thalphalam prarthichu,
Mounavum deekshichu  Homam thudanginan.

For the sacred   Homa using ghee, incense   and other materials,
He arranged    all the needed materials    to be collected,
After shutting all doors leading to  the town,
Without any doubt went inside , became purified  ,
With great   concentration prayed    for all that is good,
And observing penance of Silence started  the Homa,

Vyoma margatholam  uthitham mayoru  ,
Homadhomam   kandu Ravana sodharan,
Ramachandrannu katti kodutheedinaan,
“Homam thudangi  Dasanana mannava,
Homam kazhinju koodigil yennume ,
Nam avanodu thothidum maha rane  ,
Homam mudakkuvan  ayacheeduga  ,
Samodhamasu kapi veerare.”

 Seeing the    smoke of Homa   rising from,
The sky,   the brother of Ravana    Showed,
It to Ramachandra    and told  ,
“Oh king Ravana has started   the Homa,
If the Homa    is completed     then   always,
We would get defeated   by him in great    war.
So sent with preparation   monkey warriors,
To put  a stop   to that  Homa.”

Under the orders   of Sugreeva     and Rama,
Hanuman , Angadha    and other leaders,
 Along with an army of one hundred crore  ,
Crossed  the great wall, and reached the house  of Ravana,
And then killed all the security staff  of the town,
And all the monkey warriors together  without confusion,
Powdered  the elephant horses     and  chariots,
And searched for the place of Homa    of the ten faced one,
And Sarama the wife of Vibheeshana  by  signs ,
Indicated   the place  of Homa of the    ten headed  one.

Without any effort   Angadha   broke ,
The   big stone used to close   the cave,
And when he went inside   the cave  ,
He saw there   the king   of Rakshasas,
And all others    as per   the orders  of Angadha,
 They descended   inside the cave   and the monkeys,
Saw   Ravana    who was  meditating with closed eyes,
They hit him , attacked   all his servants  ,
And threw the collection of Homa   materials  ,
Together   in the fire  and cut  off ,
The cave in the mountain  range.

Hanuman  snatched   the great spoon,
From the hands    of Ravana  ,
And speedily    hit him with that  .
As a  sport that  powerful   monkey lord,
Using his nails    and teeth  ,
Went  on creating wounds all over  Ravana’s body,
And there  was no  change   in his deep meditation,
As that Ravana had   victory as aim in his mind.
Then he caught hold of Mandodhari dragged  her there,
 And   broke all her   ornaments   and make up.

With  her hair untied  , without dress  to cover her breasts,
She became very fear stuck and started   wailing,
“Oh God, what bad acts    did I do,
To be beaten by these   monkeys?
Oh king of Rakshasas  don’t you  have any shame?
No one else   has as much self respect as you.
In front of you   these  monkeys   ,
Are holding my hair   and   ,
Dragging me    all   over   the floor,
Oh idiot   , is this   not sufficient for you to see.”

What  is the need for   your meditation and Homa,
What  are    your thoughts   oh   blockhead,
The love for life is perhaps uppermost in your mind,
Ha , this play    of fate    is greatly surprising,
Is not the wife  , half of a person in this world,
To any one death is more preferable   than,
Seeing her   being caught   hold of by your enemies,
 And her    being troubled by them endlessly,
You do not need a wife    as well as shame,
Because of the fear   for life of this fool and greatly  wicked person.

Hearing   the wailing   of his wife  ,
Bereft of his   courage  , along with the sword.
Went near    Angadha   and those  monkeys,
Being    of a very tall body  ,
Leaving   out the wife of that   Rakshasa,
And shouting loudly   all of them came   out  ,
And   went near   Rama  and saluted him  ,
And told , “We have completely stopped the Homa,”

Mandodhariyodu  anusarichu anneram,

Jnanam asrithya   sokam kalanjidu nee  ,

Ajnana sambhavam   sokamakunnathum,
Ajnanna   jatham   ahangaram aayathum.”

Softly    the very learned    ten faced one,
At   that   time told his wife Mandodhari,
“Darling  , Understand that  everything is the wish of God,
To anyone who is born  , before he dies,
All that has been fated   should be experienced.
For us the present time is like this,
Depending on wisdom  , leave out this sorrow,
Understand that  destruction of wisdom is sorrow,
And   the experience  of ignorance   also is sorrow,
And also that  pride   is the product  of ignorance.”

Raga   harshadhi  jara   mruthyu  janmangal,
Ajnanangal  akhila janthukkalkku,
Ajnaam  yellam akale   kalaga   nee,.”

The belief   in the purely temporary body  ,
Is again     a   happening  out  of ignorance, as also
The relation  with son and    wife  is  through the body,
As  the   domestic life to the being is   through that.
Sorrow, fear  , anger  , avarice  , attachment , longing,
Sensations   , happiness , old age   , death   and  birth,
Are  all ignorance   to all the beings,
And  so throw out this ignorance   far- far   away.

The soul has the    form of pure wisdom,
Is divine , cannot be divided , is full of joy  ,
Is one that cannot be moulded and  ,
It does not  have separation from anything.
Seeing the soul like this   and after  understanding it,
Remove    the  sorrow from the soul , my wife.
I will  now come after   killing  of  Rama,
Lakshmana    and the monkeys ,
Otherwise without any   doubt , I will get,
Salvation    by the   piercing of the arrow  of Rama.
If Rama kills me ,  kill Sita   immediately  ,
And along with me   fall in the fire  ,
With great faith  , and if so  you will get salvation.

Hearing his worries  Mandodhari,
At that time told    the ten necked one,
“Nobody can win over   Sri Rama,
In all  the three worlds, understand this,
He is the very real   Purushothama ,
The  Narayana who gives salvation ,
Who has    taken the    form of Rama.”

The god    took the incarnation   of a fish,
And saved   the   Vaivaswatha   Manu,
And The lotus eyed one    once    took the form,
Of a tortoise  with  one lakh yojanas    broad,
And during the time of churning of milk ocean,
Lifted     the horrible  Mandara   mountain on his back,
And Becoming a boar , he    killed   Hiranyaksha  ,
And lifted    the earth    on his horns  ,
And   tore the chest of  horrible Hiranya kaipu by his nails  ,
And he  begged   for   three feet of ground from Mahabali  ,
And later   measured   the  three worlds by three   feet,
And    for killing in war   the  asuras  born as Kshatriyas,
Took birth as the son of    Jamadagni  and wore  the name of Rama ,
And He  Is this   same      Rama himself.

Rama was born in the clan of the sun ,
As   the   son of  Dasaratha,
And married    the daughter  of earth,
For killing you in the   form of a man,
He has been born in earth, please   understand,
For causing the destruction  of your sons,
And for     causing your own death  ,
You went and stole his    wife , unnecessarily  ,
And so you are a  shame  , you fool , idiotic lord,
Go and give back Sita    to Rama,
And give    your kingdom to your brother,
Rama    is very greatly  merciful and would  let us
Both   go to forest for  doing penance.

Raghavan thannodu yethirthu  Yudham cheythu  ,
Vaikunta   rajyam anubhavicheeduvaan.

Hearing the words   of Mandodhari  ,
The very valorous    Ravana    that time   told,
“Having brought death    to sons  , friends ,
Ministers   and friends , if I go to forest alone  ,
It   is not proper   to live like that ,
Nothing will happen as    we think,
And I will fight  the  war   with Rama  ,
And would enjoy the    stay in Vaikunta.

6.26 Rama Ravana   Yudham

The battle between Rama   and Ravana.

Itham paranju   yudhathinnu orumpettu  ,
Badhamodham   purapettithu   Ravanan,

Purpettu vannithu   bhoothale  ,
Lankadhipannu sahayamai vegena  ,
SAnkhyayillatha    chathuranga   senayum,
Pathu   padanayakarum    onnichu  ,
Pathu kazhuthane  koopi purapettar  .

Saying  like this  Ravana started for the   war,
Along with great   happiness  ,
His main army   called  “Moola bala(basic strength) ”, started   for the war  ,
Immediately and came  down to earth,
Speedily an army   of four  regiments  ,
With an innumerable    strength  ,
Along with ten commanders,
Started   after  saluting   that ten necked one.

Varidhi ppole  parannu  varunnathu  ,
Maruthi  mumbaam   kapikal   kandu yethrayum,

Manam nadichu   chennu  yelkarutharume  ,
Jnan ivarodu  por cheythu odukeeduvan,
AAnandamulkondu  kandu kolga yevarum.”

Seeing  the army which spread like an ocean,
The monkeys    including   Hanuman ,
Became terribly afraid   and seeing  them,
Retreating  , the just Rama   told them,
“Monkey warriors  , Assuming 
Self respect   do not fight   with them.
I will fight   and   kill all of them,
And you please   see it with joy.”

Yennarul   cheythu   nisachara senayil,

Yingathra    ramanmar mundennathu  ppole  ,
Rama  mayamai    chamanjithu   sangrama,
Bhoomi yenthoru    vaibhavam anneram.

After   saying that   that  god with many forms,
Went  and jumped   on the army of Rakshasas,
Along with   bow    and arrows    that Rama,
With great   anger     showered  magic of arrows.
It appeared   as if there    was one Rama  ,
For every Rakshasa   in the battle field,
And the battle field   was filled  with Rama,
What a great celebration at    that time.

“Yennodu thanne   porunnithu  Raghavan”

Dwadasa  nazhiga neram   oru pole  ,
Yathu  dhaanaa  valiyodu  Raghuthaman,
Asthram varshicha  neram aarkkum thathra,
Chithe thirichariyayathillethume

For   each Rakshasa   warrior  it appeared,
“Raghava    is fighting   only with me”,
And   for  about five hours   the lord of Raghu clan,
Rained   arrows     at the   crowd of Rakshasa   army  ,
And at that time  nobody  could recognize  anything.

Vasar a Rathri  nisachara vanara  ,

That  day night  Rakshasa  monkey  ,
Land, ocean  , mountains and forests,
Were filled with arrows   without differentiating.
The very huge    Rakshasa   warriors,
Elephants  , chariots  , horses, soldiers ,
Fell  and died and filled  the battle field.
Kali  , kooli   , headless   bodies ,
The very dark night  , ghosts ,
Dogs, foxes . hawks   crows,
Devils  increased in number  making it fearful,
And the   sound of the bell  attached to bow of Rama,
Was   being heard    again and again in the sky,
Devas, Gandharwas, Yakshas  and groups of Apasaras,
Narada    the   great    deva   sage  ,
Started praising     Raghava  ,
And those  travelers in the sky became happy  ,
And within about five hours   the Rakshasas,
 Fell    all   over the earth.

“Yikkanakke   yudham aasu cheytheeduvaan,
Narayananum   Paramesanum  ozhinju,
Aarum illennu   kelppundu  jnan munname.”

Like    the sun coming   out of the clouds ,
Raghava     was    being seen  by others.
Lakshmana  ,  Vibheeshana  , son of Sun God,
Son of wind God   and other monkeys,
Saluted him  and surrounded  him ,
On all sides   and   Rama   told them at that  time,
“I have been hearing that   except ,
For Lord Narayana    and Lord Shiva  ,
There is no one   to fight war like this.”

Rakshasa   rajyam   muzhuvan   athu neram,

Nakthancharadhipa sodhari Ramane,
Sradhicha karanam   aapathu ithokkave  ,
Vardhichu vannathu    mathilla karanam.”

In the entire   country   of Rakshasas,
At that time the Rakshasa   ladies wailed,
“Father , brother , son,  husband  ,
Lord   who is our support now,
Due to the  sister   of the king of Rakshasas,
Who is   a very ugly old    hag,
Getting   interested   in Rama  ,
All this danger   has  come and increased,
And there   is no other   reason for it.”

Soorpanakaykku   yenthu kutham   athil param,

What is there  for Soorpanakha  , the mistake  ,
Is more for    the  very devilish ten headed one,
Ravana, the fool  and great sinner  longing,
For Janaki   has destroyed  the entire clan,
Inspite   of Seeing   that In about ten minutes  he killed  Khara  in war,
Made  Sugreeva the king  after killing Bali,
And immediately    sent   the monkeys,
And the acts    that  Hanuman did here,
And their  crossing    of the sea by building a bridge  ,
He did not properly evaluate   them and lead   to this danger.

Vibheeshana told that  it is  improper by  Sasthras,
And the inebriated  one   did not agree  to it,
Vibheeshana who is good and very wise  ,
One who tells only truth  would     have  a good future,
And this   base one who has destroyed   his clan,
Followed what he wanted   which is leading to his death.

He   sent for death good sons   and good brothers,
And also   troubled    good  mother  like people  ,
All for  enjoying pleasures for himself.
Did he forget all the bad things he did earlier,
Of    taking away the wealth    of 
The Brahmins    as well   as the devas?

He troubled all  citizens   of the country,
And that   bad one send them all to forests,
He earned    by following unjust means,
He hated   all those who are his friends,
Killed   Brahmins  and  made his own,
The wealth of all other  just people ,
And also he has sinned    against  elders,
And   he does not have   mercy at   any time,
Due to the acts    done by this great sinner  ,
He also made  all of us  filled with sorrow.

 Hearing    these cries   of   the ladies of the town,
The king of the Rakshasas    became greatly sad and told,
“If so let us start  to the war   so that,
We can kill   all our    enemies.”
Hearing   that  Viroopaksha  and before him,
Mahodhara   as well as  Mahaparswa,
Came out through the northern   tower,
And started showering various    weapons.

Yetham ookodu aduthu  nisachara   veerarum.

Bad omens     happened at that time  and they,
Were disregarded    by the great leader  of Rakshasas,
And he  started   and waited near the tower gate  ,
Without any   botheration    the monkey warriors,
Opposed the Rakshasas  and seeing that ,
The Rakshasa   warriors  neared with increased vigour.

THethennu  kala puram   pukku mevinaan.

At that   time Sugreeva  and Viroopaksha  ,
 Started   a great war  between them,
When Viroopaksha saw that his vehicle,
The elephant was killed   by the monkey king,
With great valour  , took the sword  ,
And shield    and went to fight   with Sugreeva,
And at that time   the monkey king  ,
Threw a  huge hill   him.
And then Viroopaksha thinking   that it is OK,
Cut on the head    of the monkey chief,
And with great    anger the monkey king ,
Hit Viroopaksha   on   his forehead ,
And  thus he   sent  him to  the city of death.

THeril yeri kondu aduthan Mahodharan,

Mahodhara   approached   him riding on a chariot,
Sugreeva destroyed    his chariot   and also,
Sent him    to the city   of death, and seeing that,
Mahaparswa    neared him with very great anger  ,
And Angadha   killed   him at that   time,
And Ravana staring  with protruded eyes,
And with exuberance to fight   neared the monkeys,
And using   Thamasathra   made   them fall on the ground.

Rama   then   stopped the Thamsastra  by,
Sending Indrasthra and then the ten faced one  ,
Send Aasaurasthra   and as soon as it came,
It caused  lot of pain to the monkeys,
It came  in  the  form of elephant, pig,  cock,
Fox, dog , snake  bison ,   crow,
Monkey, lion, deer , wolf , raven,
Hawk  as also weapons like , iron pestle,
Spear ,  Sakthi  , White axe  ,
Sword , trident   another spear   and   arrows,
And seeing these  things coming  in a rugged way,
The human hero sent an Agneyasthra.

With  sticks of burning embers  and like   shining stars,
Moon  , sun as well as      fire  ,
It came greatly shining   and filled the space  ,
And   the Asureyasthra   went and disappeared.
Then    Ravana sent the divine arrow given by Maya,
And  due to its power   the Agneyasthra   disappeared.

The human hero  made it powerless,
By sending the Gandarvasthra,
And at that time Ravana sent the Souryasthra,
And Rama with courage  sent another  arrow ,
And cut it off  and then the enemy   of Indra,
Sent ten arrows which were equivalent to Sun,
And   wounded   the   essential parts of Rama,
That great man called  Rama  ,
Sent hundred arrows  and  with that,
The body of Ravana was   cut in several places ,
And Lakshmana     sent seven    arrows with great strength,
And at that time cut off    the flag   of Ravana.

He sent five arrows and killed the charioteer,
And without trouble   also broke his bow,
And at that time Vibheeshana  attacked ,
And killed    his horses  with a mace  ,
 And at  that time  the ten faced   one,
Jumped on earth   and attacked  ,
Vibheeshana   using  a spear  ,
With great   anger and  Lakshmana,
Cut that   spear    with three   arrows,
And then to kill  Vibheeshana  ,
He wanted to send  the spear given by Maya ,
And at that   time   when he was trying to throw it,
Lakshmana came forward   and sent  arrows.

SAkthanakil bhavan   khandikka   velithum.

Ravana     was standing    with his entire body,
Bathed   in blood and being harried  and   that ,
Ten faced  one   told with great anger  ,
To Lakshmana , “good,  you have   ,
Now    saved     Vibheeshana    well,
And now  again you  please  save  ,
Yourself    from the Shakthi that  I am sending,
If you are strong   please   cut this spear.”

Saying this  he speedily    threw the Shakthi,
Which went and stuck the chest   of Lakshmana,
And though he tried to stop it by arrows,
Since he was not able to  ,  he fell down scared.
Seeing that Lakshmana has   fallen due to the spear,
Rama became sad  and  being confused,
And since none of the monkeys   had strength  ,
To pull out the spear    Rama did it  ,
By his own holy hands   and ,
With great anger broke and threw it.

Mithra thanaya  Sushena , jagal prana  ,
Puthradhikal odu  arul cheythiaadaraal,

He told   Sushena,  the son of Sun God  ,
As well as    the son of wind God  ,
“Please take care   of Lakshmana  ,
Sitting all round him,  do not be sad ,
This is not the time   to be sorry.
I am going to kill   the  Rakshasa  lord,
Please see    with an auspicious mind.
The mastery of my hands.
My killing of Bali  and speedily ,
Building a bridge  across  the sea,
Along with   Sugreeva   and others,
My killing of Rakshasas,
Are for making  killing of Ravana possible,
And now  he has   come before me.

It is not possible that in this earth,
Rama   and Ravana   both would  be there ,
I have decided to kill that  Rakshasa,
If I am born in the   clan of   the   Sun god.
As  long as the seven islands, seven oceans,
Seven mountains  ,  Sun and the moon,
Sky and earth   are existing ,
My fame   will keep on increasing  .
If I am one who is armed , without any doubt,
I would kill  Ravana   in this war and let ,
Devas , asuras  , charanas   and sages,
Watch and see  my strength.

After saying like this   he started   war ,
By sending arrows with the king of Rakshasas.
That  God of the Rakshasas     also started to send ,
 With enthusiasm    equal  number of arrows.,
At that time when Raghava   and Ravana ,
Were   exchanging arrows   similar  ,
To the torrential    rain from clouds,
All the three worlds twanged   with the sound of bow.

Sodharan veenu  kidakkunnathorthu   ullil,

Thinking of the fact that   his brother  is lying down,
The lord of Raghu clan was  extremely worried,
And told Sushena(The doctor)   as follows,
“I do not have courage to do the war,
Instead   of living in this world   , it,
Would be better for me to die along with my brother,
I am not able to strongly hold the bow,
And   I am feeling    no strength in the body,
And  due to my mind, I am not able to stand,
My nervousness  is keeping on increasing,
I am not find the way to kill this bad one,
And in my mind  I am losing my ,  self respect.”

Yevam  arul cheytha neram Sushenanum,

Mohamathre  Kumaran yennu nirnayam.
Vakthra  nethramngalkku  methum  vikaramilla,
Thal  thernippol  unarum avarajan.”

When   he told like   this, Sushena,
Told the God of gods as follows,
“ there is no change in colour of the body, It is,
Definite    that   the lad    has only   swooned.
Also his neck and    eyes    are   normal,
And so after   some time he will   wake up.,”

Yennu unarthichu  anilathmajan thannodu,

Nannai muruge  punarnnithu   Ramanum.

After saying this and   after   some more thought,
Sushena   told    to the son of wind god,
“Please  bring like earlier   the  medicinal,
Plant called   Visalya   Karni.”
As soon as it was told Hanuman speedily,
Went and brought   that medicine.
Sushena  put its drops in the nose  of Lakshmana,
And he got up completely cured,
Again Hanuman took the mountain back  ,
To its original   place  and   the younger brother,
Saluted    the king and he  hugged him tightly.

“Ninnude paravasyam   kanka karanam,

“Seeing your  very bad    state  ,
I lost the courage  in my mind”,
Hearing    that   the Lad   told him,
“Kindly remember   in your divine mind,
That   the  promise that we have made
To   the great sages should not become  a lie ,
WE should kill this one   who troubles  the three worlds,
 And   should take    care  of the three worlds.”

Lakshmanan  chonnathu kettu  Raghuthaman,

Hearing   what was told by Lakshmana , Rama  ,
Fought    with the Rakshasa  lord very  fast,
Ravana came   riding on a chariot,
And Rama opposed him in war .
From the ground  fought  the great  one of Ikshuvaku clan,
And the  Lord of the Rakshasas opposed  riding on a chariot,
And    seeing that  Rama was  in a great disadvantage,
When Narada   and others spoke about it,
Indra    was greatly perturbed ,
And told Mathali, his chariot driver  ,
“Without  any delay   take and give ,
My  chariot   to Sri Rama  and also,
Drive the chariot   to him  in a manner ,
That   is helpful    to him, without hesitation.”

Mathali   than athu kettu udan  therumai,
Bhoothalam   thannil izhinju  cholleedinaan,
“Ravananodu samarathinnu   innu jnan,

Yennathu kettu Radthineyum  vandhichu,
Mannavan theril ammaru  karerinaan,
Thannodu thulyani Raghavane  kkandu,
Vinnil aammaronnu nokki   dasananan.

As soon as he  heard   this,  Mathali ,
Came down on earth    and told,
“I have come here  as per the orders,
Of Devendra   to help you  in your war,
With  Ravana , please  get  in to,
The chariot    for   the war and ,
I will drive it with the speed of wind,”
Hearing that  , after  saluting the chariot  ,
That king    got    in to the   Chariot,
And seeing Rama   in equal position like   him,
Ravana    with fear  looked at the sky.

Pemazha  ppole  sarangal  thoogeedinaan,

Rama   showered   arrows like   a torrential rain,
And he also sent Gandarvasthra,
The  king of Rakshasas  at that time   sent  ,
The Rakshasatra  with great   force  ,
To  fight with that  arrow  producing cruel snakes,
That  son of Raghu clan sent   Garudasthra,
Ravana sent arrows and wounded  Mathali ,
He also cut off   Rama’s   flag  ,
And again sent arrows   on the horses,
And again  the war became   very fierce ,
And seeing Rama standing tired  on  the chariot ,
Vibheeshana     the son of Kaikasi ,
Stood there    with very great sorrow.
And sorrow increased  among all the world,
And that  king of Rakshasas  said  ,
I will send you to the city  of death, send the trident.

Asthrangal kondu thataporanju orthudan  ,

Sasthrangal kondu  murichithu  Raghavan,
Saradhi   therum  thirichachu aarthanai,
Poril ozhichu  nirtheedinaan anneram.

Remembering that  it cannot be stopped   by arrows,
Rama took a Shakthi    from the  chariot  of  Indra,
 And sent it towards   Ravana,
And Ravana’s trident  broke in to ten pieces and fell down,
Then Rama  wounded    the  horses ,
Of the king   of Rakshasas, using arrows,
And Ravana’s charioteer   became worried ,
And  parked the chariot away   from the battle.

Neeyalla  soothan yenikkini  Ramannu  ,
Nee  athi bandhavan   yennu  arinjenaham.

After   his tiredness  left him  , that,
Ravana   told his charioteer,
“Why did you ride   back forcefully.
Like a blind man,  Have  I become that  much weak,
Did you think that  I will  run away and hide,
When I   am fighting     with my enemy?
You are not my charioteer now , as  I came to know,
That    you are   a close relation of Rama.”

Yitham   niacharadheesan paranjathinnu ,

Moham akaluvolam   porkkalam vittu,
Dhoore  ninnu aalasyamellam kalanjini,
Porinnu adukkanam   yennu  kalpichathre.”

Hearing     the words   of the king of Rakshasas,
The charioteer   immediately    answered,
“Not because    I love    Rama,
And not because   I do not like my master  ,
I saw   that   you were greatly   drawn out,
When you were fighting    with Rama,
And since my love towards   you  was more,
Till your   swoon   is completely cured,
I thought you can take rest  and get  relaxed ,
And then again going     for war  .”

SArathi   than ariyenam  maha rathan-

Vairikalkulla jayajaya kalavum,
Poril nimnonnatha desa viseshavum,

Allo nipunanayulla   suthan prabho.”

“The Charioteer    should know  the ,
Tiredness  of their valorous masters  ,
As well as the tiredness   of  the  horses,
And the   victory   and defeat time of the enemies,
And the   ups and downs in the course of the war,
And  He should drive the chariot  knowing all,
And then only he is an expert my lord.”

Yennathu kettu   thelinjadha Ravanan,

Ravana who became clear   after hearing this,
Hugged him and gifted  a bangle to him,
“Now   you take the chariot   and join the war,
WE will not go back in any circumstance  ,
By today and tomorrow    one   thing will be clear,
In this war    with    the king, know that,.”
The charioteer   readied the chariot very fast,
And Rama with great anger neared   them,
And they fought    with each other  ,
And made the entire place   covered with arrows.

Hearing the words of sage Agasthya , the mind of Rama became clear,
His devotion increased  and that   Rama saluted,
And then that great sage   got in to the airplane  ,
 And went and stood besides Narada   and others.

6.28  Ravana  Vadham

Killing of Ravana

Raghavan mathaliyodu   aruli cheythithu ,
“AAkulamenniye  ther nadathidu  nee”
Mathali  ther athi vegena  kootinnan,
Yethume chanchalmilla dasayanum,
Moodi podi kondu dikhum  udan , ida,
Koodi sarangal yenthu vismayam,
Rathrincharande   kodi maram khandichu,
Dhatriyil ittu   Dasaradha puthranum,
Yathu dhanadhipan vajikal thammeyum,
Mathali thanneyum   yere yeitheedinaan,
Soolam  musala gadhahikalum  melkku,
Mele  pozhichathu Rakshasa   rajanum,
SAyaka jalam pozhichavayum  murichu,
Ayodhanthinnu   aduthithu  Ramanum.

Rama    then told to Mathali  ,
“Without worry , you please   drive the chariot,
Then Mathali   very speedily   drove the chariot,
But Ravana    was not at all  perturbed.
The dust raised covered all the directions,
And  surprisingly   completely covered   the place .
Rama cut off the flag    of Ravana  ,
And put them    on the earth.
The chief of Rakshasas hit Rama’s horses ,
As well   as Mathali  with several arrows,
He then sent trident iron pestle  and mace  one after another,
And Rama    sent a bevy of arrows  , cut them all,
And  neared   for the    war.

Yetham ananjum  , akannum  valam vechum,
Yethum idam   vechum, ottu pin vangiyum,
SAradhimarude   southya kousalyavum.
Poralikalude    yudha kousalyavm,
Pandu keezhil  kandathilla naam  yivannam,
Undakukayum  illi yivannam ini mel,
Yennu  Devadhikalum  pugazhtheedinaar,
Nannu nannu   yennu  thelinjithu  Naradan.

Going nearby  , parting little  more,
Going to the right , going to the left  ,
Retreating    little more  ,
Seeing the great driving ability   of the charioteers,
And the great fighting ability   of the fighters,
The devas told , we have  never seen so far,
Nor do we hope to see   in future   and praised.
And  Narada  became clear   and told good, good.

Poulasthya  Raghavanmar  thozhil kankayaal,
Trilokya vasikal   bheethi poondedinaar  ,
Vathamadangi   maranjithu  Suryanum.
Medhi nidanam   virachithu  paramai,
Padhonadhiyum  ilaki marinjithu  ,
Pathala vasikalum   nadungeedinaar.

Seeing the war   between Rama and Ravana  ,
All the people of the world became scared ,
The air became still   and the sun set,
The earth    trembled   a little  ,
The ocean   churned   and turned,
The people of   Patala    trembled.

Ambudhi  Ambudhiyodu  yethirkilum,
Ambaram   ambarathodu yetheertheedugilum,
Raghava Ravana   yudhathinnu samam,
Raghava  Ravana yudham ozhinjilla”
Kevalam ingane  ninu pugazhthinaar  ,
Devadhikalum   , annerathu Raghavan,
Rathrincharante  thala yonnu aruthu , udan,
Dhatriyil yittathu nearm appozhe ,
Koode mulachu  kanayithavan thala,
Koode murichu  kalanju randamathum.

Even if ocean were to fight   with another ocean,
Or  if  the sky were  to fight   with another sky,
What is equal to the war   between Rama and Ravana,
Is only a war  between Rama and Ravana.”
Like that the devas   were praising the war  ,
And at that time Rama cut off one head   of Ravana,
And as soon as it fell   on the earth  .
Another   head  grew in the same place to Ravana,
And again he cut  one more  of his head.

Undayithappolum  pinne Raghavan,
Khandichu  bhoomiyil ittan ara kshanaal,
Itham  murichu noothi onnu   thalagale  ,
Pruthwiyil  ittu Raghu kula     sathaman.
Pinneyum pathu thalkkoru vattamilla,
Yenne vichithrame , nannu nannethrayum,
Ingane noorayiram thalapokilum,
Yengum kuaravillavan thala   pathinum,
Rathrincharadhipan  thande   thapo balamm.
Chithram, vichithram vichiram athre   thulom.

That also grew up and then Rama,
Cut it off  in another half a second and put it  on earth,
And like that   he cut one hundred and one heads ,
And put them all   on the earth,
But again    there was no problem for his ten heads,
What a surprise , Good, good telling this,
He cut another  one hundred thousand heads ,
And still there was  no decrease to his ten heads,
Due to power   of penance   of the  lord of Rakshasas,
Surprise  , great surprise   and wonderful.

Kumbhakarnan, Makarakshan , Kharan, Bali  ,
Vambanaam  marichan yennivar aadiyaam,
Dushtare konna  banathinu innu yenthu  athi,
Nishtooranaam   ivane kolluvaan ,
Madi yudayithu   Dasakandane kolluvaan,
Kandela upayavum   methum monneswaraa,
CHinthichu Raghavan pinneyum   aa dasakandaran,
Meyyil  banangal thoogeedinaan.

My arrow    which killed    bad people  like ,
Kumbhakarna,  Makaraksha  , Khara  , Bali,
The very powerful Maricha   and others,
When used today against    this ,
Very cruel one  is  not able   achieve   it.
Oh god, I am not able to see   any trick   to kill Ravana,
Thinking like this ,   Rama again
Showered arrows   on the body of that   Ravana.

Ravanum pozhicheedinaan   Banangal  ,
Deva devan    thirumeni mel aavolam,
KOnda sarangale kondu  Raghu varan,
Undayathu ullil   oru ninavu anneram,
Pushpa samangalai    vannu sarangalum,
Kelppu kuranju   Dasasyanu nirnayam.
Ezhu divas am    muzhuvan eevanname  ,
Roshena   niinu poruthoranantharam,
Mathali thanum    thozhuthu cholledinaan,
“Yethum vishadamundaiga manase  ,
Munnum Agasthya  thapodhanan   aadaraal,
THanna banam kondu  kollaam  Jagalprabho,
Paithahasthram  athayathu,  yenningane  ,
Mathali   chonnathu kettu   Raghuvaran.
Nannu  paranjathu  mee ithu yennodu ,
Ini konneduven   Dasakandane   nirnayam.,”

Ravana also rained arrows as much as possible,
On the body of the God   of Gods  ,
At that   time Rama did not feel any pain,
By the arrows that   hit his    body ,
And it felt as if   they were equal to flowers,
And it indicated   that strength of Ravana was waning,
Like this the war went on like this  for seven days  ,
And after   fighting with great   enthusiasm,
Mathali   saluted Rama    and told,
“Please do not feel any sorrow in your mind,
Oh Lord of the universe   , you can kill him,
By the arrows given to you by Agasthya ,
By the Brahmasthra  , “  hearing  what,
Was told by Mathali to him   Rama told,
“Good that   you   told, Using  that arrow,
Now I will  kill the ten necked one definitely.”

Yennaruli cheythu   Vairichamashtrathe  ,
Nannai   yeduth thoduthithu   Raghavan,
Surya  analanmaar   athinnu tharam  ,
Thooval vayuvum, mandara merukkal  madhyamai,
Viswamellam   prakasichoru  sayakam,
Viswasa bhakthyaa   japichu ayacheedinaan.

After telling this  Rama took  Brahmasthra  ,
And   properly   kept  it on his bow,
It was equal to sun god and the fire ,
Fanned by  wind   and being covered by ,
Meru and Mandhara   mountains  ,
That arrow    shined all over the world,
And with  faith and devotion   he sent it.

Ravanan   thande   Hrudayam  pilarnnu  ,
Bhoodeviyum  bhedichu  , varidhiyil pukku,
Chora kazhugi   muzhugi  viravodu,
Marutha vegena   Raghavan thannude  ,
Thooniyil  vanningu  veenu thelivodu,
Banavum, yenthoru   vismayam  anneram  ,
Theril ninnasu  marinju  venidinaan,
Paril maramaram  ppole  thadhaa.

It went and pierced   the chest of Ravana,
Entered  the earth , went to the   sea,
Washed the blood  , dipped   and
With the speed of the wind  entered,
The quiver   Of Rama  with no problem,
What a surprise   and at that time,
Ravana   fell from that  chariot on the earth,
Like    a huge tree   falling on earth.

Kalpaka   vruksha puthu malar  thooginaar,
Uthpanna modhena   vanavar   yevarum,
Arka kulothbhavan   moordhni   melkku mel,
Sakranum   nethrangalokke   thelinjithu,
Pushkara   sambhavanum  thelinjeednaan,
Arkanum  nere   yudhichaan anneram,
Mandamai veesi thudangi Pavananum,
Nannai vilangi chathur dasa  lokavum,
THapasanmarum jaya jaya   sabdhena ,
Thapam akannu pugazhnnu thudanginaar,
SEshicha  rakshasar odi akam pukku,
Kezha thudanginaar  okke  Lanka pure,
Arkajan Maruthi  Neela angadhadhiyaam ,
Markata   veerarum   aarthu pugazhthinaar.

The devas   with rising   tides  of joy,
Showered over   ,  the head of the one born in clan of Sun God,
New just opened   flowers of the divine  Kalpaga tree.
The eyes of Indra   became very clear,
Brahma    also became   very contented,
At that   time Sun  rose  exactly in the middle,
The wind   started   blowing like a breeze,
The fourteen  worlds   were well lit up,
The sages shouting “Victory, victory’,
Getting rid of their sorrow started praising .
The rest of the Rakshasa ran and entered the city,
The entire city   of Lanka    started   weeping,
Sugreeva , Hanuman,  Neela Angadha and other,
Monkey warriors started shouting and praising.

Agrajan veenathu kandu Vibheeshanan,
Vygrichu arikathu  chennu irunnu aakulaal,
Dukham kalarnnu  vilapam thudanginaan,
“Okke Vidhi balamallo   varunnathum,
Jnan ithokke   paranjeedinen munname,
Manam   nadichenneyum  Vedinjeedina,
Veera,  Maha sayanochithanaya   nee,
Paril yivannam   kidakkumarayathum,
Kandithellam  jnan  anubhavikkenam  ,
Yennundu  Deaivathinu athu aarkku ozhikkavathum.”

Vibeesha seeing that his   elder brother has fallen,
Becoming sad , went near  and sat beside him,
And started   wailing    with   sorrow,
“This is the strength of fate   which has come,
I told about all this earlier   and acting,
Like self respect   he   parted   with me,
Oh hero, You who have entered in to the   great sleep,
The  fact that   you are lying like this on earth,
And I am forced    to  undergo all this sorrow,
Is that decided  by God, who can change it.”

Yevam karayum  Vibheeshanan thannodu,
Deva devesan   arul chythithu aadharaal,
“Yennodu abhimukhamai    ninnu  por cheythu,
Nannai maricha   Maha sooranamivan,
Thanne kurichu  karayaruthu yethume  ,
Nannallthu   para lokathinnu sakhe,
Veerarayulla    rajakkal   dharmam nalla ,
Poril marikkunnathu  yennariyename  ,
Poril  marichu   veera swarga sidhikku  ,
Param sukruthikal   kenni  yogam varaa.
Doshangal yellam odungi   nee   vannini ,
Sesha kriyakku   thudanguka   vaikathe.”

Addressing Vibheeshana who was    crying like this,
The God of gods    with love told as follows,
“He is a greatly valorous hero  who faced,
And fought me   and who died well,
You should not cry    about him,
Because   it is not good for   the other world,
Please understand that   the dharma   ,
For a valorous king  is dying in battle .
Unless    one is blessed   he will not ,
Go to  the heaven of valour  after  dying in war.
You  please forget   about   all  the bad things ,
And start preparations   for after death rites. 

Itham arul cheythu  ninnu arulum nearm,
Thathra Mandodhari   kenu  vannedinaal.
Lankadhipan maril   veenu  karanjum,
Athangamul kondu   mohichu punar udan,
Oro tharam   paranjum  pinne mathulla,
Nari janangalum kenu   thudanginaar  .
Pankthi rathathmajan   appol  arul cheythu  ,
Pankthi mukhanujan thannodu saadaram,
“Ravanan than udal   samskarcheduga  ,
Pavakane   jwalippichi ini sathwaram.”

When he told this and was standing there,
Mandodhari came there    crying,
She fell on the chest of Ravana and cried,
And due to sorrow    fainted there  ,
And started telling her sorrow in various ways.
Other ladies who had come there  also started   crying.
The son of Dasaratha      at that time told,
The brother   of Ravana   with respect,
“Please   process   the body   of Ravana,
And start a fire     without delay.”

Thathra Vibbheeshanan    chonnan, “ivanolam,
Ithra  papam cheythavar illa  bhoothale,
Yogyamallethum adiyan ivan udal  ,
SAmskaricheeduvaan”  yennu kettu yethavum,
Vanna bahumanathode  Raghuthaman,
Pinneyum chonnan  Vibheeshanan thannodu,
“Mad banam yethu   rananthe marichoru  ,
Karbooradheeswaran   aththithu  papangal.
Vairavum aa marananthaka menna akunnithu ,
Yeriya  sad gathi  yundavathinnu nee  ,
Sesha kriyakal vazhiye   kazhikku ,
Oru dosham  ninakku  athinethum akappadaa.”

Then Vibheeshana    told, “ In this earth,
There is no one who has  done as much sin as he,
And so I consider that   it is not suitable for me,
To  prepare   his body.”  , hearing that,
With great respect  that  son of Raghu clan  ,
Again told   Vibheeshana,  “This   king,
Of the Rakshasa  has died after receiving my arrow
And so all his sins have   come to an end ,
All enmity   comes to an end after death,
He has    good   life   in the other world  ,
So please perform the   after death rites,
Because of that  no problem will come to you.”

Chandana gandhadhi   kondu chidayum  ,

Making a funeral pyre   by sandal wood,
With joy  , along with great    sages  ,
And then they decorated  by cloths , ornaments and garlands ,
The body   of the king of Rakshasas,
And along with  playing  of musical instruments  ,
Following   the rituals  of  cremating  ,
A Brahmin who does   fire sacrifice,
Ravana was cremated    as an,
Elder brother   by   Vibheeshana.

Narikal  dukham   paranju pokki chennu,
Sri Rama Padam  namaskaricheedinaar  ,
Mathaliyum   Raghu nadahane vandhichu  ,
Jathamodham poi  suralayam   mevinaan,
Chennu  nijanija mandiram pukkithu ,
Janyavalokanam   cheythu  ninnorkalum.

Ladies  talked with each other
 And unburdened  their sorrow  ,
And later   saluted   the   feet of Rama,
Mathali  also saluted the lord of Raghu clan,
And with happiness   went back to the place of devas.
All  the people who were   watching  the war,
Also went to their respective places   of stay.

 

6.29  Vibheeshana Rajyabhishekam

Coronation ceremony of Vibheeshana.

Lakshmananodu arul cheythithu  Ramanum,
“RAkshovaranaam  Vibheeshananai mayaa,
Dathamayoru  lanka rajyam   mulpukku,
Chithamodhal   abhishekam kazhikka   nee.”
Yennathu kettu  kapivaranmarodum  ,

Swarna kalasangal   poojichu ghoshichu  ,
Vadhya ghoshathodu thapasanmarumai,
Aarthu  vilichu abhishekavum   cheythithu.

Rama at    that   time told  Lakshmana,
“ Please conduct  the coronation   of ,
Vibheeshana  , the Rakshasa  chief,
 To  the Lanka kingdom   given by me  ,
To him   with a very happy  mind.”
Hearing that    along with the monkey chiefs,
As well as Rakshasas who were  left over,
They collected sacred waters including the water  of the ocean,
In pots of gold   which were  worshipped  ,
By great sages    along with music,,
And along with great   exuberance  ,
The anointing    was completed.

Bhoomiyum   chandra   divakaradhiyum  ,
Rama   kadayum   ullannu  Vibheeshanan,
Lankesanai   vazhkennu  kireetadhya-

Chilpurushan   prasadhicharuleedinaan.

Greeting Vibeeshana    that   he sould  be king of Lanka  ,
AS  long as earth  , moon, Sun and strory  of  Rama ,
Exist , they decorated   him    with   crown,
And he gave   presents   as well as   honoured  many 
And the citizens    brought   presents   to,
Vibheeshana   and   he became   very happy  ,
And   along with presents   and honours ,
He went and met Rama  and kept them under his feet,
And also greeted him  and to make   Rakshasas  happy,
 Rama also accepted    those presents  ,
Andthat divine person told ,” Now ,  I am happy   and contented”.

Agre vineethanai   vandhichu nilkkunna   ,
SAugreevane   punar aalinganam cheythu  ,
SAnthushtanai    arul cheythu   Raghavan,
“Chinthichathellam labhichu  namukkedo,

Jnan utsahamodu vadhichathu  nischayam.
Lankeswaranai  Vibheeshanan  thanneyum,
SAnka viheenam   abhishekavum cheythu.”

He again   hugged   Sugreeva    who was,
Standing with humility   saluting him,
And   That Rama   told him with great happiness.
“I got   all that   I wanted and desired.
Definitely only with your help   I could  ,
Kill   with  exuberance    Ravana,and ,
Without any hesitation    crown  Vibheeshana.
