5.Sundra Kandam

The pretty  chapter

 

Transliteration and Translation by  

P.R.Ramachander

(While crossing the sea ,  Hanuman is stopped by  Surasa to test his prowess , later  the sea God sends the mountain  Mainaka to provide  him rest , which he refuses and later his  shadow is caught  by  a Rakshasi  called Simhika , whom he kills and reaches Lanka.  There he meets  Lanka Lakshmi  who is the guardian of the city , defeats  her , enters the city  and finds out Sita , At that  time Ravana who has   a dream of what is going to happen wanting to quicken the process  of his salvation taunts Sita   and even gets ready to kill her. His wife Mandodhari prevents him. Afterwards  Hanuman hiding on a Simsupa tree   tells the story of Rama to  gain the belief of Sita, talks to her , gives her hope , destroys  the garden, kills several members of army of Ravana   and then kills Aksha Kumara , son of   Ravana. He is then  tied by Indrajit , another son of Ravana using his Brahmastra. Hanuman talks philosophy to Ravana and  is sentenced to death and by the intervention of Vibheeshana  , it is reduced to setting fire to his tail. He escapes from the Rakshasas with a burning tail  and burns the city of Lanka,  bids farewell to Sita, jumps back  and tells Rama  what he has done. It is believed  that reading only this chapter gives   same benefit as reading the entire Ramayana)

Sakala  suka kula  vimala thilakitha kalebhara ,

Sarasya peeyusha sara sarvaswame  ,

Kadhaya  mama kadhaya   mama kadakal athi sadaram,

Kakulstha leelakal  kettal mathivaraa.

 

Oh parrot   who is pure and best among all parrot clans,

The  complete  nectar    of  the best of worlds ,

Please tell me , please tell me , my story which is pretty,

For however much we hear  the sports of Rama ,

It would never  seem to be sufficient.

 

Kili makalodu athi sarasamithi Raghu kuladhipan,

Keerthi kettiduvaan chodichanantharam,

Kala mozhiyum, azhakinodu thozhthu  cholledinaal,

Karunya murthiye chinthichu manase,

Hima  shikhari suthayodu chirichu Gangadaran,

Yengilo  kettu kolga yennarul cheythu.

 

After  asking   the parrot  to tell  about ,

The very interesting fame  of the lord of Raghu clan,

And that one , with pretty lisping toungue  saluted and told,

To Parvathi thinking of that  epitome   of mercy,

Lord Shiva smiled and told , If so please hear.”

 

5.1 Samudra  Langanam

Crossing of ocean

 

Lavana jala nidhisathaka yojana visthrutham,

Langichu lankayil chelluvaan  Maruthi,

Manuja  parivruda charana nalini yugalam mudhaa,

Manase chinthichurappichu  nischalam,

Kapi vararoda amitha bala    sahitham  mura cheythithu,

“Kandu kolvin ningal yengil yellavarum.

 

Hanuman  prepared  to go to Lanka   by crossing   

The treasure of salt water  which   was hundred yojanas *  broad,

Meditated    with a   very firm  mind,

On the lotus like feet of the chief of man,

And told   the chief of monkeys     with  great power ,

“ If  it is so, All of you  please    see,”

         *approximately about  2 miles

 

Mama janaka sadrusan aham athi  Chapala mambare ,

Maanena   pokunnitha  asaresaalaye,

Aja thanaya thanaya sara sama madhika  saahasaal,

Adyaiva   pasyami  Rama pathneem aham,

Akhila  jagadadhipanodu viravil  ariyippan,

Yingu adhya krutharthanayen krutharthosmyaham,

Pranatha   jana bahu jana marana   haranamakam,

Prana prayana kale niroopippavan,

Jani marana jala nidhiye viravodu  kadakkum,

Ajjanmanaa kim punasthasya  dhoothosmyaham.

 

In the sky I would   be extremely fast like  my father,

 And I am going with dignity   to the house  of  the Rakshasa ,

With   the  energy similar   to the  arrow of  son of the son of Aja*,

And there   I would   see   the wife   of Rama,

And I will tell that speedily  to  the lord of all  universe,

And today  I am satisfied , I am satisfied,

I salute him  whose  name   removes  many births and deaths ,

And  those   who think of    him   at   the time of death,

Would easily   cross   the ocean of births   and deaths  ,

And   as I am   his emissary  and so  crossing this will  not be a problem.

                        *Dasaratha  is son of Aja

 

“THadanu mama   hrudhi sapadhi  Raghu pathiranaaratham,

Thasya aaguleeyavum undu sirasi may,

Kimapi nahi bhayamudhadhi  sapadhi   tharithum ningal,

Keesa pravarare, khediyaikethume  ,”

Ithi pavana thanayan ura cheythu  valum nijam,

Yethumuyarthi  parathi karangalum ,

Athi vipula  gala  thalavum  aarjavamakki ,

Ninnakunchithaamgriyay oordhwa nayananai,

Dasa  vadana puriyil  nija  hrudayavum urappichu ,

Dakshina   dikum aalokya   chaadinaan.

 

Also in my heart , always the lord of Raghu clan is there,

And in my  head   his   ring is there ,

And so why should there  be fear  for crossing this  sea speedily,

Oh chief monkeys , do not grieve.”

After telling like this the son of wind god ,

Lifted his tail to the top  and spread  his hands ,

And making    his broad neck straight,

Slightly bent his feet , with eyes seeing upward,

And  concentrating his mind on the town of  Ravana,

And aiming at   the southern direction jumped.

 

5.2  Marga  Vignam

Obstacle   of the path.

 

Pathaga  pathirivapavana  suthan adhavihayasaa,

Bhanu  bimbaa  bhayya pokum  dasanthare ,

Amara   samudhaya manila   thanaya  bala  vegangal,

AAlokya  chonnar pareekshanartham  thadhaa,

Surasayodu   pavana sutha   sukha gathi mudakkuvaan,

Thoornam nadannithu  naga jananiyum.

 

When the son of wind God  was flying like Garuda,

Along with the great luster  similar to the Sun God,

The  devas wanting to test   the strength and speed  of the son of wind God,

Unusually told   Surasa   to create  an obstacle in his path,

And   speedily that  mother of Nagas(serpents)  reached  there.

 

Thwaritha  manilajamathi balangal arinjathi ,

Sookshma drusyaa  varigennathu kettaval,

Gaganapathi pavana sutha   java gathi mudakkuvaan,

Garvena chennu   thal sannidhou mevinaal,

Kadina tharamalari yaval avanodu ura   cheythu,

“Kandeelayo bhavan yenne kapi vara  ,

Bhaya rahitham ithu vazhinadakkunnavarkale,

BHakshippathinnu maam kalpichathu easwaran,

Vidhi vhitham masanamihanoonamdhya thwayaa ,

Veeraa , visappu yennikku   yetham undennorkka  nee,

Mama vadana  kuharamathil viravinodu  puka nee ,

Mathonnumorthu   kaalam  kalyaikedaa.”

 

Knowing about the great strength  of  Hanuman  ,

And hearing that  he is coming  with clear vision,

For creating a blockade  to  the son of wind god in the sky,

She went   and  proudly   stood before him,

And shouting  in  a very hard way  , she told him,

“Oh  great monkey , did you not see  me,

God has told me  to eat   those ,

Who travel   this way without fear,

And due to your fate  , you are going to be my food today,

Oh valorous  one, remember  that I am having a great hunger ,

And so please  enter   my mouth  speedily,

And do not waste time thinking of other  things.

 

Sarasa mithi rabhasatharam adanu  surasa giram,

SAhasaal   kettu anilathmajan  chollinaan,

“Aham   akhila  jagadadipan   amara  guru sasanaal,

AAsu   Sitanweshanathinnu  pokunnu,

Avale  nisachara puriyil viravinodu chennu,

Kandu adhya vaa swo vaa varunnathumundu jnan,

Janaka nara pathi duhithyacharitham akhilam drutham,

Chennu raghupathiyodu ariyichu jnan,

Thathparyamutkondu vannu pukkeduvan,

Anyathamaka thaliril orupozhuthum mariveelaha ,

Masu margam dehi , devi, namosthuthe.

 

Hearing these   saucy , strong words  which,

Fell from the mouth of Surasa, the son of wind god told,

“I   for  carrying   the order   of  the   lord  of all worlds,

Am  going speedily   in search of Sita.

I have to go fast and see her in the town of Rakshasa,

And  I would be returning back  today or tomorrow  from there,

After  seeing her and  after  telling the story  of the daughter of Janaka,

To the  Lord of the Raghu clan , I would  willingly come,

And enter   the very fearful mouth   of yours,

And since  I do not  tell a lie at any time,

Speedily give me the way, Oh lady , salutations.

 

Thadanu kapi  kula   varanodu   avalum ura cheythu,

“DAhavum kshuthum  porukkaruthr thume,”

“Manasai thava    sudrudam ithi  yadhi sapadhi saadaram,

Vaa pilarnidennu  “ Maruthi collinaan

Athi vipulamudalum oru   yojanaayamai,

Yasu uga nandanan ninnathu kandaval ,

Athil adhika thara  vadana  vivaramodu anakulam,

Madbutha mai anvchu yojana   visthrutham.

 

Then she     told  to the     great  monkey,

“I am not able to tolerate my thirst and hunger ,”

“If you have   made  up   your mind strongly,

Please open your mouth” said   Hanuman,

Seeing that  the son   of wind god ,

Is standing with huge body of  one yojana  broad,

She made   her mouth   much bigger,

And wonderfully made it five yojana  broad.’

 

Pavana thanayanum  mathinnu jjadithi   Dasa  yojana,

Parimithi   kalarnnu   kanayoranantharam,

Nijamanasi guru kuthukamodu Surasayum thadhaa,

Ninnal yirupathu   yojana  Vayumai,

Mukha kuharam  athi vipulam ithi karuthi , Maruthi,

Muppathu yojanavannamai mevinaan,

Alamilamitha yam  amalan aruthu jaya marrkkumennu,

Anpathu yojana  vaa  pilarneedinaal,

Athu pozhuthu  pavana suthan athi krusa sareeranai,

Angushta  thulyanai ul pukku arulinaan.

 

The son of wind god  immediately   became of ,

A size   of ten yojanas and afterwards,

With a great joy  in her mind  that  Surasa,

Stood with a mouth of twenty yojanas  size,

Hanuman thinking that her mouth is very big,

Stood   with a size   of thirty yojanas,

Thinking that  this is sufficient as he is a pure one,

And victory cannot be  there  for both  ,

She opened her mouth  fifty yojanas  wide,

And at that  time  the  son of wind god ,

Became to a size of a thumb entered her mouth .

 

Thadanu  laghu tharam  avanum uru thara  thapo balaal,

Thathra  purathu  purappettu chollinaan,

“Srunu, Sumukhi,Sura sukha pare, Surase , Shubhe,

Shudhe , Bhujanga mathave, namosthu they  ,

SAranamiha charanasarasija yugalameva they,

SAnthe , Saranye , Namasthe , Namosthuthe.

 

Then he who was light due to the strength  of his penance ,

Started  to go outside  and told her  ,

“Hear  , pleasant faced one, One  who is interested in happiness  to devas,

Hey Surasa, Hey mother of snakes, my salutation to you,

I surrender   to the lotus like   feet  of yours,

 Oh peaceful one, One who gives help , Salutations, salutations to you.

 

Plavaga   parivruda vachananisa mana dasanthare ,

Perthum  chirichu  paranju  Surasayum,

“Variga , thava jayam athi sukhena poi chennu nee ,

Valla bha vruthantha mullavannam mudhaa ,

Raghupathiyodau akhilam ariyikka   thal kopena,

Rakshoganatheyum  yoke yodukkanam,

Arivathinnu  thava  balaviveka vegadhikal,

Aadhitheyanmaar  ayachu vanneham,”

Nija charitha makhilam   avanodariyichu poi,

Nirjara  lokam gamichaal  Surasayum.

 

At the end of the   words  of that monkey chief,

Enjoying and laughing  , that Surasa  told,

“Come  , you have won  , go with pleasure ,

 And get   the   true  story   of Sita,

And go and tell it  to the chief of Raghu clan,

You have to also kill  all the Rakshasas,

To understand your strength   and wisdom,

 I have come   as sent   by the devas ,

Thus telling the real story , she   went ,

To  the land of   devas  , that Surasa.

 

Pavana suthanadha gaganapadhi garuda thulyanai,

Paanju paaravaara meethe gamikkumbol,

Jalanidhiyum achala   varanodu cholledinaan,

“Chennu nee salkarikkanam kapeendrane ,

SAgara nara pathi thanayanmaar  yenne valarkkayaal,

Sagaramennuchollunithillavarum,

Thasya karyarthamaipokunnathumivan,

Idayilorupathanamavannilla thala karanaal ,

Ichaya  pongi thalarcha  theerthidenam.

 

Then the son of wind god  rushed   through the sky,

Like a Garuda and when he was going above the ocean,

The sea god told   the great mountain  as follows,

“You should go and be hospitable   to the monkey  chief,

Since the son of SAgara king helped me to grow  ,

I am called Sagara  by all people  ,

Please  understand that  Rama belongs to that  family,

And since this one goes   for   doing his job,

And since he does not have any place to rest,

You should  of  your own accord come out   and remove his tiresomeness.”

 

Mani kanaka mayan amalannaya Mainakavum,

Manusha vesham   darichu cholledinaan,

“Hima  sikhari  thanayan aham ariga , Kapi veera nee,

Yenmelirunnu   thalarchayum theerkkedo,

Salila nidhi  sarabha  samayakhalaal   vannu jnan,

Sadavum dahavum theerthu poykolkedo,

Amrutha   sama jalavum   ati Madura Madhu pooravum,

AArdhra pakwangalum  bhakshichu kolga nee.”

 

 

The very pure Mainaka studded  with gold and gems,

Came   in the form of   a human being and told,

“Please know that I am the son of Himalayas, Oh monkey hero,

You please sit on me and get rid  of your tiresomeness,

I have  come here  because I  was sent by the ocean,

And please get rid of your tiredness and thirst and then go,

Please  eat soft  ripe fruits ,nectar  like water ,

And very sweet  honey from me.

 

Alamalamitharu tharuthu  Rama karyarthmai,

AAsu pokum vidhou parkarathu engume,

Anbodu   sadhichozhin ozhinju aruthonnume ,

Vigatha bhayamini viravaadinnu  jnan pokunnu,

Bandhu salkaram  parigrahiuhenaham.

 

 

This is sufficient, know that, when you   go on  a job of Rama,

On your way   you should not   stay in any place  ,

And also   sleep on the way   as well take  food,

Or do any other things not related to the job  , as  is not proper,

And  do the duties    of the chief of Raghu clan,

Without any fear  I am going with speed ,

And I have accepted your hospitality  as   a friend.

 

Pavana suthan ivayum  ura cheyhtu than kaikalaal,

Parvathaadheeswarane thalodinaan,

Punar avanuanila sama muzhari nata   kondithu,

Punya janendra  puram prathi sambramaal,

Thadanu jala nidhiyil  athi gabheera desalaye,

Santhatham vanezhum chaya grahiniyum,

Saridhaipanu upari parichodu  poikunnavan,

 Than nizhal aasu  pidichu nirthedinaal.

 

After saying this the son of wind god patted  ,

That  king   of mountains gently,

And then he   started  moving similar  to the wind,

Towards  the city   of Rakshasas  with excitement,

At that time , a shadow catcher   living  always,

 Very deep   in the ocean,

Caught  and stopped   the shadow   of him  ,

Who goes   far    above   the sky.

 

Athu pozhuthu  , mama gathi mudakkiya thar ,

Yennithantharaa paarthu  keezhpottu nokkedinaan,

Athi vipuala thara bthara bhayakaranye  kandalavu,

Angripathena konneedinaan thaalkshane  ,

Nizhalathu pidichu nirthi konnu thinnunna,

Dasa  vadana puriyil viravodu poyeduvaan ,

Dakshina  dikku nokki kuthicheedinaan.

Charamagiri  sisrasi  raviyum pravesichithu,

Charu Lanka  gopuragre  Kapeendranum.

 

At that time  examining   as to who  put a stop,

To his way  , Hanuman saw down,

And seeing a very big lady with fear  inducing form,

He kicked   and killed  immediately,

That  Simihika who used   to catch the shadow  ,

And kill and eat the beings  who were killed,

And Hanuman left   towards   the city ,

Of the ten faced   one   quickly  ,

And jumped towards   the southern direction.

The sun entered    the hill   of its death,

And the  chief of monkeys  reached  the  pretty spires of Lanka.

 

Das vadana   nagara mathi   vimala vipula   sthalam,

Dakshina varidhi   madhye   manoharam,

Bahula   phala kusuma   dasa yutha   vitapi sankulam,

Vallee kruthavrutham paksha mruganvitham,

Madhye   trikootachalopari  Maruthi,

Kamala makal   charitham  arivathinnu  chennu anbodu,

Kandithu Lanka nagaram nirupamam.

 

The city of the ten faced   one  was very pure and broad,

Situated  in the  middle of the pretty southern  ocean,

It was full of  plenty of  fruits, flowers  and densely grown trees,

Containing several type  of climbers  , and great population of birds and animals,

Full of gold and gems , similar  to the city of devas ,

And Hanuman  went inside   the  city of the  three hills,

Which   is in the middle of the sea ,

For finding out   the story  of the daughter  of lotus,

And saw    the matchless  city of Lanka.

 

Kanaka virachitha mathil  kidangum  pala tharam,

Kandu kadappan  paniyennu manase ,

Paravasathayodu jadithi pala vazhi  niroopichu ,

Padmanabhan  thanne Dhyanichu mevinaan,

Nirjara dese  kadappan yennorthavan ,

Nija manasi   nisichara  kulariye dhyanichu ,

Nirjara   vairi puram  gamicheedinaan.

 

Seeing the wonderful golden  wall and different type  of  moats  ,

He decided  that  it was difficult to cross and quickly ,

Thought of various   plans    to cross  them,

And meditating   on Lord   Vishnu ,

He thought   that he can enter  the town of Rakshasas,

At  night  taking  a very tiny form ,

And thinking about  Rama  , the enemy of Rakshasa  clan,

 Trted to enter   the  town of the enemy of devas.

 

5.3 Lanka Lakshmi Moksham

Salvation   to the Lakshmi of Lanka.

 

Prakruthi Chapala num  adhika  chapalamachalam  mahal-

Prakaravum  murichu aakaravum  marachu,

Avani  makal adimalarum akathaliril orthu  kondu,

Ullil kadappan  thudangum dasanthare,

Kadina tharam    alariyoru  rajani chara veshamai ,

Kanaithasu  Lanka sriyeyum thadhaa.

 

Without delay  speedily  crossing the  big outer wall,

Hiding his form and  meditating on  the feet  of daughter of earth,

Immediately that son of Anjana   without any fear  ,

Made his body similar  to a mustard,

And keeping his left leg in front ,

Was trying to cross  and at that time,

He could see   the Lanka Lakshmi (guardian angel of  Lanka)

With a form of  a  Rakshasi  and shouting   with big voice .

 

“iviide  varuvathinnu   parakenthu moolam   Bhavan,

Yekanai   chorano  chollu ninvanchitham,

Asura sura  mara pasu  mrugadhi janthukkal,

Mathakku me vannu koodaa jnan ariyathe.”

Sir, Please tell me the reason for coming here,

Alone ,  Please   tell me   whether  you are a thief,

Asuras, devas  , men , and all type of animals,

Cannot  come   here   without my knowledge”,

Coming  with  these   undesirable words

She hit   Hanuman    and the monkey king hit back,

And   due to the fist of  the emissary of the one from Raghu clan,

She   fell down and vomited  blood.

 

Kapivaranodu  aval   yezhunethu  cholledinaal,

“Kandenado   thava  bahu balam   sakhe ,

Vidhi vihitham ithu  mama puraiva  dhathavu than,

Veera , paranjithennodu  munnme ,

SAkshaal  Maha  Vishnu moorthi Narayanan,

Kamala   dala nayanan avanayil  avatharikkum  mul-,

Karunya   moshta vimsathi   paryaye.”

 

She stood  up and   told that great monkey,

“Friend I just saw    your great strength,

This is due to my fate,  long time ago  Lord Brahma has

Oh valorous one  , told me about this ,

“Lord Madhava    who is the lord of all worlds  , who is perennial,

Who is the real  Maha Vishnu  , the  Narayana  ,

Who has lotus like eyes will take an incarnation  in the world,

In the twenty eighth  section of   this  eon.”

 

Dasaratha nrupathi  thanayanai  mama  prarthanaal,

Treta yuge  darma  deva raksharthamai,

Janaka   nrupa varannu  makalai  nija mayayum,

SAnnadhanai varum yekan   thavanthike  ,

Kalaham avanodu  jjadithi   thudarum  alavethrayum,

Katharayai  varum neeyennu nirnayam.

 

As a result of my prayer   in treata yuga,

For protecting   the dharma   as well as devas,

He would   be born as   the son of Dasaratha,

The true goddess of illusion would be born as  daughter of Janaka,

For the destruction    of the ten headed  one.

That lotus eyed   one  would come to the   forest for penance ,

Along with   his brother   and wife  and while he is living there,

The   ten face one would steal the daughter of earth,

And during the time  he would come with her  inside   the southern sea,

A treaty would be signed between Rama   and son of Sun god,

And due   to the orders   of that   Sugreeva  ,

When all the monkeys are  wandering and searching,

One of them would come prepared and meet you,

And there  would be   a fight   with him soon,

And there is no doubt that   you would become weak and tired.

 

Rana nipunanodu   Bhavathi thadanavum kondu,

Laghu gathiyodu ini oridarozhiye  nada kolga nee,

You would get a beating   from the expert in war,

And then you should give  him permission,

Any day when you  get a beating from monkey  ,

Do retreat , “  said Lord Brahma   to me,

Since he told this with mercy  and without  any conditions,

I was waiting  at    this place    for a long time  ,

And now go   without  any problem any where  ,

And today   Lanka has been won over   by you.”

The death   of the chief   of the clan of Rakshasas,

Has   very much neared , Oh servant of god,

Let there   be good luck to you,

Please go and see  without  any problem the  lady Sita,

In the private   quarters   of  the ten headed ,

Enemy of Rama, , in the divine  entertainment garden,

Which is full of trees  ,  which are  full of,

New flowers    , fruits   and trees ,

Below a tree called   Simsapa(irumul) ,

With great sorrow , in between several  Rakshasis,

The pure bodied Sita  is always sitting with great  pain,

You go  immediately   and tell   her story  to  him,

BY crossing the sea  by the way of the sky,.

Let  good come to you . oh great crown of monkeys,

Telling these  sweet and simple words ,

That lady of the flower disappeared from Lanka.

 

5.4 Sita Sandarsanam

Seeing of Sita

 

Udaka nidhi naduvil   maruvum  trikudadri mel,

On the three  mountains   in the middle of the sea,

When   the son  of wind god crossed   the sea,

To the blessed   daughter of  Janaka   and to the ten faced one  ,

The left   side  of their body    twitched *,

And  to the son in law   of king Janaka   the right side twitched,

Showing that   to any one born , good and bad will come

     *Twitching of left side  is  good omen for females

     And bad   omen for  males.

 

Thadanu   kapi kula pathi  kadannithu Lankayil,

Thanathi  sookshma    sareeranai rathriyil,

Uditha    ravi kirana   ruche poondoru   lankayil,

Okke  thiranjaan  oridamozhiyathe.

 

Then the chief of monkeys     entered Lanka at night  ,

With a body   which was very  small,

And in the Lanka which was decorated   by rising sun,

He searched  in all places   without leaving  any place.

 

Dasavadana mani nilayamayirikkum  mama,

Devi yireppedam yennorthu  Maruthi,

Kanaka mani  nikara  virachitham   puriyil yengume,

Kananju  Lanka vachanam ortheddinaan,

Udamayodum asura puri  kanivinodu  cholliyor,

Udhyana dese  thiranju   thudanginaan.

 

Thinking  that Sita Devi would  possibly  be,

 In the   gem studded  palace  of Ravana,

 Which is built   by gold   and gems ,

He searched   in all places  and not finding  her there,

Remembered  the merciful words  of Lanka  Lakshmi,

And with diligence started searching ,

In all  garden places   in the town.

 

Upavanam amrutha sama salilayutha   vapiyum,

Uthunga  soudhangalum gopurangalum,

SAhaja sutha   sachiva  bala  pathigal  bhavanangalum,

Souvarna   sala dwaja pathakangalum,

Dasa vadana mani bhavana shobha  kanum vidhou,

Digpala mandiramdikruthamai varum.

 

With parks  , lakes  with   nectar like water  ,

High  buildings   with spires,

Homes of friends, sons ministers and commanders,

With golden coloured peacock   and flags  ,

To look,    the  gem studded palace  of the ten faced one ,

Appeared   to be much better than palaces  of guardians of directions.

 

Kanakamani  rachitha  bhavangalil yengume ,

Kananju pinneyum  neele  nokkum vidhou,

Kusuma   chaya   surabhiyodu pavanan athi goodamai,

Koode thadanju kooti kondu poyudan,

Upavanamuruthara  tharu pravarangalum,

Unnathamayulla   simsapa vrukshavum,

Athi nikatam akhila   jagadeeswari thanneyum ,

AAsuganasu  katti kodutheedinaan.

 

When he was not able to find her  out,

In any of those mansions studded  with gold and gems,

And when he   was  further  searching everywhere,

The wind  along with  the aroma of flowers  , secretly,

Took him   along    with him,

To a garden  with densely grown trees,

And to one  of the very highly grown Simsapa tree ,

And very near to it   the Goddess  of all universe ,

Was shown to him by the wind god himself.

 

Malina thara  chikura vasanam poodu dheenayai,

Maithili than  krusa gathriyai yethrayum,

Bhaya vivasa avaniyil urundum sadaa hrudhi,

Bharthavu thanne  ninachu ninachalam,

Namathe Rama Ramethi japikkayum,

Nisi charikal  naduvil azhalodu marum easwari,

Nithya swaroopiniye   kandu Maruthi,

Vitapi vara sirasi nibida chanthargathan,

Vismayam poondu maranjiruneedinaan

 

Wearing  a very  dirty hair   and cloths and looking pitiable.

That Sita    who was  having a very thin form,

Due to  great fear   rolled   on the earth and ,

Thinking   and thinking of her husband ,

Always shedding    copious tears    from the eyes,

And chanting her husband’s name as “Rama, Rama”,

She was living with great fear between the Rakshasis,

And Hanuman saw    that  ever pretty one ,

And climbed to the top most portion of a tree ,

And hid himself behind its dense foliages.

 

Divasakara kulapathi Raghuthaman thannude ,

Deviyaam Sitaye   kandu, Kapivaran,

Kamala makal akhila Jagadeeswari  thannudal,

Kanden , krutharthasmyoham krutharthasmyoham,

Divasakara  kulapathi Raghuthaman karyavum,

Dheenathayenniye SAdhichithunnu jnan.

 

That monkey after    seeing Sita , the wife of Rama,

The best among Raghu clan and  the lord of the clan of Sun God,

Thought, I have seen  the body of  the daughter of lotus,

And the  goddess of all universe , I am blessed, I am blessed,

 I have completed   the job   of the best among Raghu clan and 

The lord of the clan of  the Sun God,  without    any suffering to myself.

 

5.5 Ravanande  Purappadu

The starting of Ravana.

 

Ithi palavum akathaliril orthu  kapivaran,

Ithiri  neram irikkum dasanathare ,

Asura kula  vara nilayanathim   purathu ninnu,

AAsu  chila ghosha sabdhangal kelkkai,

Kimidhamithi  sapadhi  kisalaya  chala nileenanai,

Kedaval ddeham marachu  maruvinaan,

Vibudha kula ripu  Dasamukhan  varavethrayum ,

Vismayathode   kandu  kapi kunjaran.

 

When  that monkey chief was   thinking about various things,

And  after   a little   time   has passed,

He heard   certain  sounds ,

From outside   that  place  belonging to asuras,

Thinking what they are  and hidden by leaves  and not moving,

He   continued to hide his insect like small  body,

And that  chief of monkeys   saw with wonder ,

The coming   of ten faced one  who is  the enemy of devas.

 

Asura  sura nisicharavarangana  vrundavum,

Adbuthamayulla  srungara   veshavum,

Dasa vadanan  anavaratham  aka thaliril undu” than,

DEha nasam bhavikkunnathenneswaraa ,

SAkala jagadadhipathi sanathanan sanmayan,

SAkshaal  mukundaneyum kandu kandu  jnan,

Nisitha thara  sara sakalithanganai  kevale,

Nirmalamaya  bhagwat   padambuje.

 

Along with  the crowd of deva  , asura and Rakshasa  maidens,

Dressed  in a wonderful passionate manner ,

Came the ten faced one   in whose  mind there  was a thought,

“Oh   God when will  this body die,

When I  would be able   to see and see,

That  real Mukunda   who is the  Lord of all universe ,

Who lives forever , One who has a good mind,

With my body  with holes  made of arrows  ,

And reach  the very pure  lotus like feet of  that God.”

 

Varadanajamarumamruthananda poornamaam,

Vaikunta rajyam  yenikkennu kittunu,

Athinnu  batha samayamidhamithi manasi krutha,

Jnan amboja puthriye kondu ponnedinen,

Athinum oru  paribhavamoduzhari  vannela,

Vanayur vinasa kalam namukkaagatham,

Sirasi  mamalikhithamihamarana samayam drudam,

Chinthichu kandal  athinilla  chanchalam,

Kamala janumariyaruthukaruthum aval  aarkkume  ,

Kala swaroopanaam  easwaran than matham.

 

Thinking that   it is time   for me  to get to  Vaikunta ,

Which is full  of blessed  people and  nectar like joy

And deciding    that   time has arrived for that,

I went and brought  the daughter of lotus,

And  He has not reached  here wandering after being hurt by that,

So that   the time    for my death  will arrive  quickly.

The writing on my head has already fixed my time   of death,

And  it is not possible to think and find   it out,

And even  the god born of lotus also  does not know it,

And  it is decided   by  the   god whose form is time.

 

SAthatham  akathalirilva karuthi Raghunadhane ,

Swathmanaa  chinthichu chithichirikkave  ,

Kapikal  kulavaran avide yasu chillum mumbe ,

Kandithu rathriyil  swapnam  Dasananan,

Raghu janana thilaka  vachanena  rathrou varum,

Kashil kapi varan  Kamaroopanvithan,

Krupayodoru   krumi sadrusa sookshma sareeranai,

Kulsnam puravaramnwishya   nischalam.

 

Like this  when he has kept  Rama within him,

And  think  and think   within his mind about him,

Before the   chief of the monkey clan has   reached there ,

That Ravana   saw  a dream at night  ,

As per the words   of  Rama , during one night will come  ,

One monkey who can take  any form he likes  ,

With mercy  but   with  a micro form  similar to an insect,

After   searching    the   whole   city ,

 

Tharu nikara  vara   sirasi vannirunnadharaal,

Thar magal  thanneyum kandu  Ramodantham,

Akhilam avalodu  batha, paranjadayalavum,

AASu koduthudan aswasipichu pom.

 

He would sit with respect   on a top of a tree ,

And tell the story  of Rama  to the daughter of earth,

And after telling the entire story , he would give her mementos,

And  he   would console   her  before  going  away.

 

Athu pozhuththil avan arivathinnu  jnan  chennu  kandu,

AAdhi  valarthuvan  vaang mayasthangalaal,

Raghupathi yodathum avan  seshamariyichu,

Ramanumingu  kopichudane  varum,

Rana sirasi  sukhamaranam  athi nisithamayulla  ,

Rama saramethu   yenikkum varum drudam ,

Paramagathi varuvathinnu   paramorupadesamaam,

Pandhavithu   mama  parkkayillethume,

Sura  nivahamatha bala vasaal  sathyamai varum ,

Swapnam chilakku  chilakalamokkanam.

 

At that time  to make him know  , I would go ,

And increase   her sorrow  by the arrows  of  my words,

And he will  later   tell it to the lord of Raghu clan,

And Rama   would get angry and would come here  immediately

And in the war   I would get   a pleasant  death,

By the very sharp  arrows   of    Sri Rama, definitely,

And this   would   be  the only way as far as I know,

For   getting divine salvation is the  divine teaching,

And  for some people  dreams   would come true,

By the decision   made   by  the gods.

 

Nija manasi  palavum ithi  viravodu nirroopichu,

Nischithya  nirgamicheedinaan  Ravanan,

Kanaka mani  valaya  kadakangadha   noopura,

Kanchi mukha bharanaravaamanthike  ,

Vismayamammaru  kandu purobhavi ,

Vipudha ripu nisichara kuladhipan  than varavu,

Yethrayum  bheethanai   vannithu  Sithayum.

 

Thinking  about  several   such things in his mind,

And deciding on a course  Ravana started   from there,

And hearing   the sound of gem studded  gold bangle , shoulder crest  ,

Anklets, belt and various other  ornaments,

With a very heavy heart ,  Sita was  greatly surprised ,

And  the coming of   the chief of Rakshasa   clan,

Made   Sita   extremely   scared.

 

Urasi javumuru thudagalaal marachadhi

Poonduthamangam  thazhthi vepadhu gathriyai ,

Nija Ramana nirupama sareeram nirakulam,

NIrmalam dhyanichirikkum dasanthare  ,

Dasavadanan yuga sara paravasathayaa  samam,

Devi samipe  thozhuthiruneedinaan.

 

When she hiding her  breasts  by   her  thighs  and fear stuck,

And bending low her head  and with a shivering body ,

And meditating   on the real form of Rama ,

Who is pure, incomparable  , serene and pure,

Then that  ten faced one   along with passion,

Came and stood  near the lady  and  saluted her.

 

5.6 Ravanande  Ichabangam

Ravana’s   disappointment

 

Anusarana  Madura rasa vachana   vibhavangallal,

He  told that  lady  who had a joyful  form,

With conformed words  of sweetness and excitement,

“Hear, Good faced one , I am slave   to your pretty feet,

Oh lady with pretty character, Be kind, kind  to me,

The chief  of all worlds  and  the lord of devas  has come here,

Why should  you hide  yourself in yourself,

With  speedy and increased   joy, please look at me,

And understand that  I am attracted to you.

Oh ,lady  your husband who is the son of Dasaratha,

If searched  only   some people  would be able to see him,

And many times  he would not be available  inspite of good search,

And  we cannot see  any one as lucky   as him,

Oh good one, By the   son of Dasaratha you do not have,

Oh pretty one  , any  use whatsoever, please understand,

At no time  he has   any interest in anything,

When we think about it , it is useless, darling,

Oh lady  with a lovely brow  even though  you always  embrace him tightly,

And go   and always  live near  him,

He enjoys  the collection of your good qualities.

But he does  not have  any interest  in you.

Swakkalum gokkalum  bedamilethume,

 

At no time  there is any support to him from any one,

And that one who has no strength  will not come here,

Whatever  you have to do you are not doing?

He who does  not have fame , one who is not grateful,

One  who is mostly indifferent , one who does not have enthusiasm,

And darling he  is having a bad mind , He is not learned ,

And lives  amidst  the beings of the forest 

He is a friend of the poor , he does not have difference 

Between the low and high  and  so he does  not have difference,

Between  a low born and   a high born Brahmin,

And also he does  not have difference between dog and a cow.

Oh darling   for  him there  is no difference ,

Between you and a  lowly  huntress maid,

In his mind you are   not there   as he  has forgotten you,

Stop this waiting    for your husband ,

He does   not like you  and there  is no doubt about that,

And I am praying to you  that  I am your slave ,

Throwing  away a pure  gem of high pedigree ,

Darling why are   you  after  a stone  made of mica ,

Beauties   belonging to deva, asura ,  Rakshasa,

Naga , Apsara   and Gandharwa clans

Would    always   be serving you  with,

Discipline , fear   and great respect  ,

If   you  definitely   become  my wife.

“Now  we should  not  spend time unnecessarily,

Oh darling, you live always as my wife,

Even that  Yama whom many ladies  serve,

Is really   afraid of me , Oh pretty one,

And  know that Indra who is regarded  by the mind of men,

Thinks that  I am worshipful and   blessed,

Oh my all   who is friendly  and  lucky,

Oh lady with a lotus like face , I fall  at your lotus like feet,

Always look after  me , look after me , look after  me.”

Like this when Ravana   was talking to her in various obeying ways,

And after  which   he   saluted her by falling her feet and requested ,

Then the daughter  of Janaka  pinched a grass growing in between them,

And put  it in between them   and talked .

You being terribly  afraid of the gem of the clan of the sun God,

Did you not come as a saint , and without both of them seeing you,

With great fear   and humility , like a bitch   entering  the hall of a Yagna,

And stealing the fire  , you came  abruptly  and stole   me   from there ?

Remember  ten faced one  this is definitely  not properly done.

Definitely you   would suffer for  the ill effects of that  ,

With a body split  by the arrows sent by the son of Dasaratha,

Soon you will  be entering the world of Yama   without a body.

Oh king of  Rakshasas , You think in  your mind ,

That   the gem of the clan  of Raghu   is a man,

And you may think like this , but  ,

That  the gem of Raghu clan would   cross this sea,

And within a second by sending sharp  and powerful arrows,

He would turn the  city of Lanka in to ashes within  half a second,

Along with your friends, their sons, ministers  and commanders,

He would definitely   destroy   your army.

He is an expert  in protection  and due to the request,

Of Brahma  to  lessen the burden of earth ,

That merciful one  has taken incarnation   in this  earth,

To   destroy you  and  I was born as  daughter to Janaka,

To become   a causal   factor for this,

Understand in your mind that he would come quickly  ,

And take me back     after  killing you.

Hearing  these rough words from the daughter  of Mithila,

The ten faced  one became   very angry,

And in his trembling hands he took a fearsome sword,

And held it up for killing the  daughter  of earth,

And at that time   with great mercy   the daughter  of Maya*,

Caught hold of her loving husband and pacified him.

            *Mandodhari  wife of Ravana.

Stop from doing it , oh ten faced one, hear my words  oh my lord,

Oh  foolish lord  , do not think about  jobs which should not be done ,

Leave out this human female, who does not have any one,

Who is pitiable , very sad  and having a thin body,

Who With  a sorrow  due to parting with her husband is worried and in another’s  house,

Who is  observing   virtuous  love   to Raghava,

And who day and night hears   bad words of these  Rakshasis  and has lost her balance ,

For Oh  good evil minded  lord , I have  never seen more suffering than this,

Will not bad   fame come to you  because of this  oh Valorous  Lord,

And also  very pretty ladies  of deva  , Asura, Naga , Apasara,

And Gandharva  clans   are available to you.

 

Dasamukhanum  adhika jalanasu  Mandodhari,

Ambodu   randu masam  parppan innyum”

Ithi   rajani charikalodu  Dasavadananum  paranju,

Eershyayodu   anthapuram pukku  mevinaan.

 

That ten faced one who was a braggart ,

Hearing the words  of Mandodhari  became   ashamed ,

And told   as follows   to those   Rakshasis,

“You advice her  and make her amenable to me,

By fearsome words which would make her obey,

And by various types   changes  in gestures.

And open  the mind  this daughter  of earth,

And make her mine  as I would wait for only two months.”

Saying like this to the   Rakshasis  that ten faced one ,

Went  with spite    to his private   quarters.

 

Athi kadina  parusha thara vachanam  yelkkayaal,

Due to hearing very hard  and unpleasant words,

Sita felt as  if her   soul   is broken,

“This is improper , please  calm yourself down,”.

 Told   Trijata  (daughter of Vibheeshana )     at that  time,

“Oh Rakshasa  ladies, please   hear   what I say,

Please salute this lady with good character ,

I slept for long with a mind devoid of pleasure,

And I certainly    saw   a dream which would definitely happen ,

I saw the very pretty Rama  who  is the lord of all universe,

Riding on Iravatha elephant  and the valorous Lakshmana,

With the falling fire  from their  crowds  of arrows,

Without any doubt they   burnt the city of Lanka,

And in the war , they killed    the ten faced one ,

And gave the Rakshasa  kingdom to Vibheeshana,

And  then keeping  his wife with respect and love on his lap,

 Went back to   the city  of Ayodhya.”

The naked ten faced one who is the enemy of Indra ,

Coated  with gingili oil   all over his body,

Wearing the khus  garland on his   head,

Along with   his friends, ministers  and army,

Got drowned   in a   huge  pit of cow dung ,

And I was surprised  to see  him drowning in it.

The chief  of the Rakshasa clan Vibheeshana , became a devotee,

And served  the lotus like feet of Rama  and lived,

And so Oh Rakshasa ladies, throw away this impurity,

For  what  I see  is  definitely true ,

And let us mercifully,  for a few more days,

Protect    her   without any doubt.

Manase   dukham kalarnnu   Vaidehiyum.

 

Hearing these    words  of Trijata  the Rakshasa lasses,

Were   struck   with a strange   fear and ,

Slept   with   a  very disturbed  mind,

And Sita   remained   with   sorrow in her mind.

 

5.7  Hanumal Sita Samvadam

The discussion between Hanuman and Sita.

 

“Ushasi  nisacharigal ivar udal mama  bhakshikkum,

Uttavarayittu orutharumilla  mama,

Maranamiha  varuvathinum oru kazhivu kandeela,

Manava veeranum  yenne marannithu,

Kalavan iha viravinodu  jeevanam adhya jnan,

Kakulsthanum Karuna heenan yethrayum “

Manasi muhuru iva   palathum orthu  santhapena ,

Mandam  mandam yezhunethu akulaal,

Tharala   thara hrudayamodu bhartharam orthu orthu,

Thanu kidannoru   Simsupa   sakhayum,

Sabhaya  paravasa  tharala maalambhya bhashpavum,

Sanththam varthu vilapam  thudanginaal.

 

“in the early morning these  Rakshasis will eat me  ,

And there  is no one who is known to me here,

I do not find any reason for death not coming to me,

The human hero seems to have forgotten me ,

And so speedily   I would take   out my soul  ,

And even Sri Rama   appears to be devoid of any mercy,”

Thinking  various things  like this  in her mind,

She slowly stood up  with great   sorrow,

And with a trembling mind thinking about her husband ,

Took hold of   a low lying branch of a simsupa   tree ,

And with  trembling due   to fear   and worry  ,

She   shed lot of tears   and started   crying.

 

Pavana suthan iva  palavum aalokya manase ,

Parthu pathukke   paranju thudanginaan,

“Jagad amala  nayana vara gothre Dasarathn,

Jathanaayaan, avan thanude   puthraraai,

Rathi Ramana   thulyarai nalu perundithu,

Rama, Bharath , Soumithri  SAthrugnanmaar,

Kananju   dukhichu Ramanum  thambiyum,

Vipina bhuvi  viravodu thiranju nadakkumbol,

Veenu kidakkum  Jatayuvine  kandu.”

 

That son of wind god   thought about manythings in mnd,

And looking on all sides started   telling in a low tone,

“In  the clan  of the eye of Lord of the universe  ,

Dasaratha   was  born, and his   sons , who were all similar  to love god are ,

Rama , Bharata , Lakshmana  and Sathrugna

The cause   of the destruction   of the Rakshasa  clan,

As per orders of his father, lived happily in the forest ,

Along with  the daughter  of Janaka   and his brother,

And there the ten faced one  came as a false saint,

And stole Janaki   from that place  ,

Rama and his brother became sad  at not being able to see her,

And while   they were searching   all over  ,

They saw   Jatayu     who was  lying on earth.

 

Paramagathi punaravannu nalki aammalyaval,

Parvatha parswe  nadakkum vidhou  thadhaa ,

Tharani suthanodu  sapadhi sakhyavum  cheythithu ,

Punar  avaril oru vanaham athra  vaneedinen,

Punyavanaya   sampathi than vakinaal,

Jalanidhiyum oru  sathaka yojana visthrutham,

Chemme  kuthichu chadi kadaneedinen.

 

Giving him salvation there  , when they were ,

Walking near the Malyavan   mountain,

They signed a treaty with son of Sun god,

And immediately the son  of Indra   was  killed  ,

And the   son of  Sun god became king of monkeys,

And as   a  return for that service Sugreeva,

Sent speedily   great monkeys   to all four directions,

For searching    and finding out  and afterwards,

Out of them , one  , that is me has come here,

Due to the  words   of the blessed  Sampathi,

And I easily jumped   and crossed the sea ,

Which was  one hundred yojanas long.

 

Rajani chara puriyil   muzhuvan thiranjan aham,

Rathriyilathra   thathanugraha vasaal,

Tharu nikara  varamariya   simsapa  vrukshavum,

Kama laabhaal  krutha kruthyanayeedinen,

Bhagawad anuchararil aham agresaran  mama,

Bhagyamaho   mama bhagyam  namosthuthe

 

I searched   in the entire city of Rakshasas,

At night and then due to the blessing of my father ,

I could find the garden and  then the Simsupa tree ,

And  you   at  its bottom  , with great   enthusiasm,

And seeing you with great  pity, I became satisfied  ,

And due to achieving my desire I became  greatly satisfied,

And I am   the first  among  the  assistants   of God,

This is my luck, great  luck, my salutations.

 

Plavaga  kula varan  ithi  paranjadangeedinaan,

Oru purushan ithu  mama  paranju  vannakila,

After  telling this the  best among monkeys stopped,

And for some time she did not move and then told,

“Who  sang  the   story of the best among Raghu clan,

Which is pretty In a sequential manner   in the sky?

Is it that  the wind god took mercy on me   and is telling me,

Or is it   only a false  feeling  in my mind?

Since   I have   not  slept  for some time now,

There  is no possibility of it being a dream.

Oh God  , let   this story of my  pretty husband,

Become   true  definitely,

And suppose   this has   been told by a man,

Let me be able   to see   that  very good one.

THushtyaa kala  pinga thuly sareeranai.

 

Hanuman hearing   the words  of daughter  of Janaka,

Slowly  and slowly got down with rising happiness,

And  with humility  fell down   and saluted her,

Very  pretty   lotus like feet with devotion,

And after  saluting he  went back and  stood,

At a slight distance with a body  ,

Similar   to a  Kali PInga bird(A very small bird)

 

Ivide  nisicharapathi valee  mukha veshama,

AAi yenne  mohippathinnu varigayo ?

Kapatam  oruvarodum oru pozhuthum  mariyuneela ,

Karmana  vachaa  manasapi  Mathave .”

 

Has the Lord   of the Rakshasas come here ,

In the form of a monkey to enchant me?

“Shiva, Shiva” , thinking like this the daughter of king of Mithila,

Was scared  deep in her  mind  and deciding that,

Tricks   are   very important   to the  ten faced one ,

Kept on bending   and seeing this , the chief of monkey told,

“I surrender  at your lotus like feet , Oh mistress  of the world,

Please do not   have  even a minimum doubt in your mind,

I am your  attendant  and not one whom you think,

I am the slave  of the Rama, the king of Kosala ,

Pretty one , I am the servant of   Sugreeva,

The son of Sun God  and am the son of wind god,

I  do not play deceit   with anybody at any time,

BY action  , words   or mind, Oh mother.”

 

Pavana sutha  madhura thara  vachanamathu  kettudan,

Padmalaya devi  chodhichathu aadharaal,

“Rutha mruja  mrudu sphuta varna   vakhyam,

 THelinjingane    chollunnavar kurayum thulom.

Karunya vaaranidhe  , Kapi kunjaraa,

THirumanasi   bhavathi  perige  premam undennathu,

Yennodu  chonnathin moolavum    chollu nee.”

 

Hearing  these very sweet words   of the son of wind god,

That  Goddess  who sits on lotus flower asked respectfully,

“There  would   be only very few   persons who can tell,

Such  true ,  direct  , soft and very correct words which are clear.

Please tell me  , how all these  happened ,

Between man and monkeys who are ,

Of different  tastes   in the   deep forest .

Oh treasure  of mercy , Oh monkey   who is great,

Please  also tell  me the reason  for telling,

That  in the mind of Rama , there  is love for me.”

 

Srunu Sumukhi  , nikhila  makhilesa vruthanthavum,

Here good natured one  , the story of the lord of all

And this oath is taken on God Rama ,

When you   became two parts obeying the ,  

Words of your husband , one part with fire,

And another  in the hermitage  ,

You saw  a    golden deer and Rama   chased that deer,

Along with  a strong  and    very sharp arrows,

And  Rama  killed  the very   bad Maricha,

 And   shall I tell you   the  story ,

When he   returned  tired  to the hermitage  ?

 

Udan  avide avide   adaviyilataye Nokkiyum,

Ottu  karanju  thirinjuzhalum vidhou,

Gahana bhuvi  gagana charapathi garuda  sannibhan,

Kenu   kidakkum Jatayuvine  kandu,

Avanum adha   thava charitham makhilam ariyicha ,

Alavasu  koduthithu mukthi paksheendranum,

Punar adavikalil avarajena saakam drutham ,

Pukku thirinju  Kabandha  gathi nalki ,

SAbari maruvinamunivarasrame  chennudan,

SAnthathmakn mukthiyum kodutheedinaan.

 

Immediately    when they searched  here and there ,

In the forest   crying  and wandering without purpose ,

In the  impenetrable forests, they saw   Jatayu,

Who was similar to  the king of the  sky,Garuda,

Lying in a pitiable   condition ,

And as soon as he  told all your story completely,

That king of birds   was granted  salvation

And later when Rama along with his brother ,

Was searching for you speedily ,

He granted   salvation to Kabanda  ,

And then he went to the hermitage  where Sabari lived,

And that  Lord with a peaceful soul  gave her salvation.

 

Adha SAbari  vimala vachanena   ponnu  rushya,

Mookadri  pravara  parswe nadakkum vidhou  ,

Thapana suthan iruvare  azhakinodu kandu,

Athi thalparyam utkondu ayichithenne   thadhaa,

Athi nirmalanmaare   chumalil yeduthudan,

Tharani   suthan ikata bhuvi ondu chennedinen,

SAkhyam parasparam  cheyichithasu  jnan.

 

Because   of the pure words of Sabari  they came,

To  places near the rushya mooka mountain,

And Sugreeva seeing  those   two pretty people,

Became very interested  and sent me there .

And then  I went in front of   those  born in clan of Sun God,

 Dressing myself   like a student saint ,

And understood the complete heart of   those royal people,

And carrying   those   very pure ones  on my shoulders,

I went  to the presence   of the son of Sun God,

And immediately I arranged them to sign a treaty,

 

Dahanamazhakinodu   sakshiyakki  kondu,

DAndam  iruvarkkumasu  theertheeduvaan,

Thapana sutha  grahiniye  balal adakki konda,

THarapathiye vadhichu Raghu varan,

Prathyeka mekaika laksham  niyogichaan,

Athu pozhuthu Raghupathiyum alivode  ,

Vilichanguleeyam mama kayil nalgeedinaan.

 

Making    the   fire   as  the witness ,

For   solving the painful problems of both.

That  god of Raghu clan killed   the son of Indra,

Who forcefully took  the wife of Sugreeva for himself,

And gave   the kingdom   to the  son of Sun God,

And the king of the monkeys   to search for  the lady of Rama ,

Sent the lords of monkey clan  to all the four sides,

And for each direction he sent hundred thousand members,

And at that   time   the Lord of the Raghu  clan , called me,

With a melting heart   and gave  his ring in my hand.

 

“Ithu Janakapathi magal  kayil kodukka,

Nee yennude  namaksharanvitham,” pinneyum,

Sapadi thava  manasi  guru viswasa sidhaye,

SAdaram  chonnan adayala   vakyavum,

Athu bhavathi kara thaliril ini  viravil  nalguvan,

AAlokayalokayananda  poorvakam.”

Ithi Madura tharam anila  thanayan ura chethudan,

Indira devi   than kayil nalgeedinaan,

Punar adhika vinayamodu  thozhuthu thozhuthadaraal,

Pinokkil  vangi  vanangi ninnedinaan.

 

“You give  it  to the daughter  of King Janaka,

With my name engraved  on it .” and agin,

For  creating strong belief in your mind,

He also told me   the identifying words.,

And I will speedily give   it in your hand,

With a picture   of  great happiness”

Like this with great sweetness that son of wind god,

After  this speech ,  gave  it to the Goddess Lakshmi,

And with great humility   again and again  saluting,

Went back   and stood there  saluting her.

 

Mithila nrupa suthayum  athu kandu athi preethayai ,

Maen mel  ozhugum   Ananda   bhashpakulam,

Ramanamiva  nija sirasi  kanivinodu  cherthithu,

“Plavaga  kula parivrooda  , maha mathiman   bhavan,

Pala   gunavum udayare ozhige mathareyum,

BHarthavai vaykkukayilla  math sannidhow.”

 

The daughter  of the king of Mithila became  very happy on seeing that,

Shedding  flowing  and ebbing   tears   of real joy,

She said “pretty”   and   with tenderness  kept  on her head,

That  ring in which  name  of Rama was engraved ,   happily,

“Oh superior one of monkey clan, Oh one with great brain,

You are  the one who gave me life  and so you  would definitely do  good to me,

Hey Rama  who is the god of the goddess, who is the treasure  of Lakshmi,

This devotee  is greatly believable and merciful,

My master   always    sends before me  ,

Only those   with very many good qualities.

 

Mama   sukhavum   anudinam irikkum  prakaravum,

Thwarithamiha  dasa mukhane  nigrahichu yennude  ,

Dukham kalanju   rakshikkennu chollu nee .”

 

Did  you not see   my pleasures   and the way  that I live daily,

And  my pitiable   state  of affairs  ,

You go and  talk to the lotus eyed  one  ,

So that   he will have  mercy to me in his mind,

It is definite that   the  great Rakshasa ,

Would make me his food    after  two months,

And so you go and make  a visit before   that ,  possible ,

And   I would keep  my life   till then,

You please  tell him to quickly kill  the  ten faced one  ,

Remove  my sorrow  and save me.

 

Anila  thanayanum   akhila   janani  vachanangal  kettu,

The son of wind God after hearing the words of mother of all,

Immediately told  her  so that   her sorrow   would  end,

“Even before   I tell   the news about you,

To Rama, the son of a king ,

He along with his brother  and all monkey clans,

Would become ready   and without doubt will come  here.

They would  within a second , send the ten necked one  along with,

His sons, ministers    and friends  to the place of the son of Sun God(Yama) ,

And   you along with your prettiness  would be  freed,

And would go to Ayodhya with respect along with your husband.”

Hearing these words of the son of wind god with interest,

The  Goddess Lakshmi   asked,

“ With which group of people  would  the great man

Cross this vast ocean along  with the huge  monkey army”

And when she  thought like this , Hanuman told   Sita.

 

“Manuja parivrudaneyum , mavarajaneyum  ambodu,

Mattulla vanara sainyatheyum kshanaal,

Mama chumalil   viravinod yeduthu kadathuvan,

Maithili , kim vishadham vrudha  manase”,

“I would carry the   glorious man  , his brother  and,

Other monkey army    with love    on my shoulders,

And speedily  make them cross the sea,

Oh Sita what is the need  of this unnecessary  worry,

And then very easily  would  make in to ash,

The clan of the Rakshasas  along with the city of Lanka.

And pretty one , for that give me permission to go back speedily,

So that  I can go back  without any troubles , dear ,

And   for creating belief in me   to the worried mind,

Of the lovelorn  chief   of the clan of Raghu,

Give me a seal  and also  a memento,

And a sentence so that   I can tell it to him.”

 

Ithi  pavanathanaya vachanena  Vaidehiyum,

 Hearing these   words of the son of wind god  ,the daughter of Videha,

Thought    for some time   in her  mind,

And took out the divine brooch  which used  to shine in her hair,

And that   divine  one gave it to  Hanuman,

“Here  my son, Please   hear these identifying words  ,

Understand it and tell it in his ears,

So that  it is definite   that  my husband  ,

Would develop speedily  belief in what you tell.

Once in Chithra Koota mountains   when that,

Saintly person got joy out of great   penance  ,

I was available to him to  relax  his  body,

And during that  time when he saw me  and we were waiting,

He kept his head full of hair  on my lap  ,

Immediately    went   to sleep.”

 

Athu pozhuthil athi chapalanaya   sakrathmajan,

Divyasthra manthram japichayacheedinaan.

 

At that time the son  of  Indra who was ill mannered ,

Took the shape of a crow   and came there  ,

And several times he pecked several meat balls,

And thinking that   he would eat them  ,

I took stones  and threw  them at him and when they hit him,

Becoming angry  he used  his very sharp  nails and  started, 

Scratching  my body and when the divine one woke up and saw,

Seeing the   blood which was  flowing all over me ,

With very great anger , he took a piece  of grass,

And chanted the  chant of  the divine arrow and sent it.

 

SAbhayam   avan   akhila disi panju nadannithu  ,

Rakshichu kollenam   menne krupanidhe  ,

Aparamoru   saranamiha   nahi nahi  namosthuthe  ,

Ananda  moothe  , SAranam namosthuthe,.”

 

With great fear   he rushed in all different directions,

For  getting rid of the sorrow   and also to save   himself,

When Indra, Brahma   and Lord Shiva  and all others,

Said it was  not possible for them to save him,

He came and fell at   the lotus  like feet  of Rama,

And cried, “Please save me, oh treasure of mercy.

Except you   I do not have  any other protection,

Salutations oh form of joy  , Salutations.

 

Ithi sabhayam   adi malaril  veenu  kenedinaan,

Oru pizhayum  oru pozhuthil  avanodu chetheela  jnan,

Like that with fear   that  Jayantha  ,son of Indra,

Fell at his lotus like   feet and   and cried,

And the  epitome of clan of Raghu told with a smile,

“My arrow    will   never   go waste  ,

You will lose one of your eyes , for it definitely,

Nothing can be done and so you go without fear.”

Like this he   who saved me  every day,

Due to my  bad luck  is not bothered about me today,

I have never done any wrong at any time to him,

And possibly the reason for this is my sin.”

Hearing various such words of the daughter of Janaka,

The valorous     son of   wind god told,

“Your husband    did not come over  here,

Because he did know   where you were,

And now he would come with speed,

And the crowd of monkeys , definitely,

 Would make all the Rakshasa s and Lanka in to ash.”

 

Pavana sutha vachanammithi kettu  Vaidehiyum,

Pavanajanum  avani magal  vachanamathu kettudan,

Hearing these words  of the son of wind God, Sita,

With  great happiness    asked,

“You  are  extremely small  and thin, and ,

Do not other monkeys  also look like this,

And all the Rakshasa have bodies  like a mountain,

And how will all of you oppose  them,”

And the son of wind god   hearing the daughter  of earth,

Immediately and fast stood before her like a mountain.

 

Vinaya bhaya  kuthuka  bhakthi  pramodanwitham,

Veeran namaskaricheedinaan anthike  ,

Priya vachana   sahithanadha  loka  mathavine ,

Pinneyum moonu  valathu vecheedinaan,

“Vida thariga janani, vida kolvaan adiyannu,

Bharatharamasu   varutheedugathra nee ,

Sukhamodiha   jagathi suchiram   jeeva jeeva nee  ,

Swasthyasthu   puthra, they   susthirasakthiyum.”

 

Along with humility , fear , curiosity , devotion  and joy  ,

That valorous  one saluted her   and in the end,

That  one who speaks loving words,  went round,

On the right   the mother   of the world three  times,

“Bid me farewell , my mother, I am taking leave of you soon ,

Always  live without any sorrow whatsoever,”

“Let good things happen to you son, during the way  permanently,

Please  make  my husband come   here,

And you  live with pleasure  and live for a long,  long time,

Let  there be welfare  to you oh  son and let you have  strength always.

 

Anila   thanayanum  akhila jananiyodu  sadaram,

Aaseervachanamadhaaya   pin vanginaan.

 

The son of wind god   received  words ,

Of blessing from the  mother of the world and walked  back.

He sat on a tree   top,  little far away,

And easily  found out  what  he should do,

“When  an able   emissary   is sent  to ,

Some other city  for doing  the job of a king,

Without  creating any problem  and  after achieving the  job,

And without   any deficiency  of his lord’s job,

With great cleverness   if he should  with  justice ,

Do some other job , then he is great .”

This is a good time   for me  to see  the Lord of Rakshasas,

With love    and talk to him and go back,

And this is  definitely the proper  way to do that”,

Thinking like that , he started  powdering  the garden.

 

Mithila nrupa makal maruvum   athi vimala  Simsapa,

Except the very big Simsupa  tree  under which,

The daughter of   king of Mithila sits , he uprooted all trees,

Which included  trees with flowers , leaves and fruits  ,

Shrubs  and while they were falling  with great sound,

Which consisted of various   sounds which were fearful.

Also  the  birds there flew  away  making great noise,

And   flew   with great fear    in all directions.

And all these  sounds  travelled   all over the place  including sky,

And the town of Rakshasas was   turned upside down,

By the emissary of Rama   who was greatly valorous,

And those Rakshasis at   that time  with great fear  ,

Awoke    and saw   the monkey hero there.

 

“Ivan amitha   bala sahithan , idi ninadha mochayum  ,

“He is one with great strength  with a voice like thunder ,

And what  type of animal he is and why did he come here?

Oh good natured one  , Did he not stand near you,

Oh pretty one , and tell you   about some special news,

And in our mind we   have great fear seeing him,

Why has  he come in the   form of a monkey,

And why has he   come in the darkness  of night  ,

Please tell us the reason  , Did you not know  , Tell us who he is.”

 

“Rajani chara kula  rachitha  mayakal okkave  ,

“Who else   except   the Rakshasas know,

About the magic   weaved  by Rakshasas?

Seeing him , my mind also is filled   with fear.,

And if we grows like this , what will happen oh  God.”

When the daughter  of earth told them like this,

They went and   told the king of Lanka like this,

“One tree moving  and greatly strong one  who resembles a mountain ,

Broke    the entire garden and destroyed it,

Expecting war   that one  without any fear  or sorrow,

Broke also   the temple  hall for making sacrifices

And he carrying a  pestle immediately ,

Without any effort beat  and killed those guarding it ,

And it appears  that he is not afraid of anyone in this world ,

And Oh Lord, he   has still  not gone   from there.”

 

Dasavadanan  ithi Rajanicharikal  vachanam kettu,

Dandhsaukopam  krodha vivasanai,

“Ivan ivide   nisi thamasi  bhayamozhiye  vannavan,

Yethum yeliyavan allennu nirnayam,

Nisitha sara kulisa musalaadhyangal kai kondu ,

NIngal pokaasu noorayiram veeranmaar .”

 

Hearing these    words   of those Rakshasis.

He became   angry like   a cobra   and told,

“He has come here  in the darkness  of night,

Without any fear  and  so it is definite that he is not ordinary.

Let  hundred thousand soldiers     go armed ,

With  sharp arrows, thunderbolts, iron pestles.”

 

Nisichara  kuladhipa   aajnakaranmaar athi,

SAbhayathara hrudayamadha mohichu veenithu ,

SAmbramathodu adutheedinaar   pineeyum.

 

Seeing  those  who were   given orders  ,

And sent by the  Lord of the Rakshasas,

He  roared  like  a lion which    shook ,

The entire   world including  mountains,

Hearing which  The Rakshasas  ,

Swooned   due   to a mind filled with fear ,

And with great nervousness  neared  him.

Paramarana nipunanodu yethirthu  panchathwavum,

When they sent at   him very sharp arrows .

And a bevy of various types  of weapons,

That king of monkeys immediately ,

Grew  up more in height    and without effort,

Using a mace with pointed   thorns ,

Beat   and killed   all of them.

Hearing the death of several  thousand soldiers ,

Sent by him , without any fear  that king of Rakshasas,

Chose   five persons from the very powerful ones  ,

And ordered them to go , with great wrath.,

To those five  commanders  opposing   the expert

In killing  others, death came  soon.

 

THadanu   dasavadanan udhitha    krudhaa chollinaan,

“THal balam adbutham  adbuthayolbhoothidham,

Mahitha mathi  bala sahitha  yezhuvar orumicvhudan,

Then with rising anger   the ten faced  one told  ,

“His strength is wonderful , I am afraid,

The five commanders who  just went   with great force,

All died   in great   disgrace .

For arresting him    with life   and bringing him,

In front of me  let   the very powerful,

Seven minister’s sons  go     along with a great army .”

Hearing the words   of the ten faced one  ,

Along with a great army     and   weapons,

Like pestles  sword    and arrows 

 In their hand  and Shouting in a huge way

Those Rakshasa  heroes neared   the monkey chief,

And    send all  their weapons    at him  every second

So that  the earth  was disturbed and all people  started shouting,

And that  son of wind God  killed them speedily  ,

By a   pillar   made    of iron  with great speed.

Ayyo , sukrutham nasichithu maamakam.”

 

Hearing that  the sons of seven ministers    

And army, have  gone to  the world of death 

The ten faced one had  increased  sorrow   and fear in his mind ,

And he lost his  respect   and had sorrow and shame .

“Now no one can win over   him,

And I have   not seen any one like him,

And if one of them  (minister’s sons)  opposes, the entire asura and deva clan,

 Cannot stand against him in all three worlds,

Alas, many of them  have died at  the hand of a monkey,

I think  my good luck  has been destroyed.”

Yennu aksha kumaranum   nirgamicheedinaan.

 

To his father   who was  worried  and tired,

Thinking   of many things , with respect ,

And humility his younger  son saluted and told,

“This is not proper for the persons  with valour  ,

Breaking down like this  is not  suitable for all kings,

For sorrow of the soul  eats away courage   and valour  .

And I would bring this   enemy chief   within a minute,”

Saying like this that   Aksha Kumara   went .

 

Kapivaranum   athu pozhuthu  thoranam yerinaan,

Moordhani  mulgaram kondu yerinjeedinaan,

Samanapuri  viravinodu chennu pukeedinaan,

At that   time that  noble monkey was on the arch ,

And saw   Aksha  Kumara   in   front of him,

And by  groups of arrows   Aksha  wounded   and pierced  ,

The body  of the chief animal  on the branches  at that time,

And the very angry Hanuman  stood between earth and sky,

And threw  a mace   with thorns   on his head ,

And that  strong Aksha    who was pretty  ,

Went speedily   to the city   of death.

 

Vibudha kula ripu  nisicharadhipan Ravanan,

The  king of Rakshasas  Ravana who was  the enemy of devas ,

Hearing the news   became grief stricken  and hugged ,

His son who won over Indra   and was    extremely strong  ,

With    a great sorrow   of soul,” Dear son,

Hear my  words , have you heard,

That your brother   has gone   to the  city of the dead,

For sending    that  monkey   who killed ,

My son in a war  to the to the place  of the son of Sun God,

Speedily  ,  I am myself going   along with a great force ,

And we would do funeral rites of your younger  brother afterwards.”

 

Ithi  janaka vachana malivodu kettu aadharall,

Vala madanam api  yudhi jayichu  nammodoru ,

Hearing these words of his father  with pity ,

Indrajit immediately  told with respect   ,

“My father  , greatly intelligent one , leave  out your sorrow,

I would   wipe out completely your problems,

There is no doubt   that  he  is free  from death,

Will anyone else   come this far?

Suppose I see     that  he does not have  fear of death,

I would tie him out using Brahmasthra ,

By the   boons given by Lord Brahma ,

Rakshasas have   conquered   the entire universe

And I have    won a war with the  deva king Indra,

And it is a wonder that a monkey came   and opposed us.

 

Athu karuthum   alaviliha  nanamaam yethrayum,

SAmpad vinasa karam  param nirnayam,

SAshukamiha nivasa mayi jeevathi thwam vrudhaa,

SAnthapam undakaruthu karuthumaam.

 

When we think about it  , it is a great shame,

Even  if I am not able to kill, I without great delay ,

By dharmic  or non dharmic or by cheating,

With great effort   I  would bring him before you,

Now a danger   has come  before us due   to  a lady,

Which would destroy wealth  with certainty,

And as long as I live , you please  live happily here ,

And believe   in me   and do not be sad.

After  pointing matters that  are  good to his father,

Indrajit    started to go  becoming ready,

He took  chariot, armour  ,  sharp arrows  and other weapons,

He went  speedily before   the  emissary of Rama  ,

And he who  is equal to Garuda , jumped  up on the   sky,

Along with a  huge shout  , that  valorous Maruthi,

And both of them developed   respect for each other ,

Seeing   the speed and strength  of each other .

 

Pavana sutha sirasi  saram anchu  kondu yeithithu  ,

Sthambhena   suthane  konnithu sathwaram.

 

That valorous one , similar   to a lion, who had won over  Indra,

 Sent five arrows aimed at the  head of the son of wind God,

And then he speedily sent eight arrows  aimed at his chest  ,

And then he sent another six arrows aimed   at his   feet,

And he also sent a very sharp  arrow aimed   at his tail,

And then that   chief of    the monkey clan ,hurt by those arrows,

Shouted like a lion   and churned   the world,

And took a pillar   and killed the driver  of the chariot.

 

THuraga  yutha  radhavum adha  jjadithi  podiyakkinaan,

He  also speedily powdered   his   chariot with  horses,

And  that  Megha Nada(Indrajit)   jumped away from it,

And he got another  bigger chariot    and riding in it immediately,

And started  rain  of   very sharp arrows , and getting angry,

That son of Ravana   by  rain of arrows  could damage  ,

Only four , four hairs    Of Hanuman  and seeing,

That because of that   there is no problem to the lord  of monkeys,

He sent at him the   divine   Brahmastra,

And son of wind god   with great intelligence   respected  it  ,

But alas fell down fainted on earth  and the son of the ten faced one Tied the son of wind God and placed  him before his father ,

But   to the son of wind god there   was ,

No problem in his mind due to boons  given earlier by devas.

The people who always   chant  the name of ,

The  lotus petal eyed   Rama would become pure minded,

And pure due to  their   devotion to Lord Vishnu(killer of Madhu),

And within a second get free  from the  ,

Attachment created   by wisdom as  well as action,

Though such an attachment  is created  over a long time,

And reach the  feet  of Lord Vishnu permanently ,

And there  is no doubt   about this  

And would  ever , the  emissary of Rama    who has ,

Kept himself  at the two feet of  the star  of Raghu clan be tied up.

Those   who spend  their life  without attachment to ,

Birth and death  will not have any sorrow  from other attachments,

After    showing falsely  that   his  hands and legs are paining 

And due to many people   with merriment,

Tying him    with  pieces   of rope  ,

The strong tie of Brahmastra  made  by,

The enemy of devas  became  immediately untied.

He  did not  have any   problems in his mind,

And he did not show that  he is not tied ,

And when the Rakshasas carried him shouting,

He   lay    seriously without any movement.

Placing   the son of wind god  in  front of the lord of the Rakshasas,

Indrajit ,the enemy   of Indra   told,

“He is the  one who has  killed  several Rakshasas in war,

And now he has become   tied  by Brahmasthra.

Father  , in consultation with your dear ministers,

Properly enquire him   and pass  the judgment ,

Understand   that this  monkey is not an ordinary one,

For he is the god of death  to all his enemies.

The ten faced one hearing these words of his son,

Told Prahastha(his chief minister)  who was standing there,

“Find out    speedily the reason for his coming here ,

And also where from   he has come  ,

And why did he destroy the   garden  ,

And also kill the   people who were guarding it ,

And also   why did with force   beat ,

And kill  the other  Rakshasas  who went there,

And also whose   emissary   he is?”

And hearing the enemy  of Indra , Prahastha  ,

Asked with  humility and respect that  son of wind God,

“Hey Monkey  , who sent you to come here?

 

“Nrupa sadasi  kadaya  mama sathyam  Mahamathe  ,

“Oh intelligent one,   please  tell truth in this court,

And definitely    we would   release you,

Please  throw   away  fear from your mind ,

And see that  this is equal to Brahma’s court  ,

Duties against Dharma   and words which are lies  ,

Are not there  in the kingdom of  Lanka.”

Hearing with justice   the questions  posed ,

By the  king of the Rakshasa  clan, that  son of wind god,

Thought  for a moment Lord Rama in his mind,

And slowly  with a smile   told,

“Please  hear   extensive    answer in detail, Oh lord of Rakshass,

Know that  I am the emissary of worshipful Rama,

My lord is the  king of the world worshipped by Indra,

He is blessed one   , the best among men   and is divine ,

He  sleeps on the chief of snakes , pure  and is the god of all,

He is  the enemy of asuras and one who  gives wealth and salvation,

He is the one who is in the heart of Shiva  , one who lives in time ,

One who is served by Lord Shiva , one who controls five elements,

Who has   Garuda the enemy of snakes on his flag, Madhava ,

King , one who is recognized  by Vibheeshana ,

And he  the pure one  ,  for making his father’s word as true ,

Started   to the forest  and while  he was ,

Living there  with a daughter of   Janaka and his brother ,

Did you not go and   steal  Janaki.”

 

Thava maranam iha  varuvathinnoru karanam,

Thamarasodhbhava kalpitham   kevalam,

Thadhanu  Dasaratha thanayanum   Mathngasrame,

Thapena   thambiyumai  gamicheedinaan.

 

This is one of the reasons heralding your death  ,

And this   is simply  the decision    of  Lord Brahma ,

And that   son of Dasaratha   went to  ,

The hermitage   of  Mathanga   with pain along with his brother.

He signed a treaty with the son of Sun God  ,

With fire as the witness    with  conditions  ,

And after that   he killed Indra’s son   by an arrow,

And gave   Kishkinda  to the   son of Sun god.

And  to him   who  saluted  him on his lotus like feet,

He gave the power  to rule  and  destroyed his sorrow,

And he in turn  , for searching   for the daughter of earth,

At one time   send hundred  thousand monkeys lords

For each direction and among them,

I am the one who has come to see  you.

The reason   for  destroying  trees  of the garden

 Again and again  is because  of the normal  habit of the monkey clan,

And the reason for killing  the Rakshasa  heroes ,

Is because  I was afraid that   they will  kill me,

In this   world  definitely  there  is no being,

Which does   not have the   fear   of death.

And oh ten faced one   to protect my body in war,

I killed   hoards   of your servants,

Even if one is of hundred crores of age  ,

Please remember , every being loves  his  own body.

BY the  rope of Brahma   sent by your son,

I got  tied   up for a quarter   of a second,

But the power of the boons given by Brahma  and other devas ,

My body will not undergo any suffering ,

I will never  have any injuries or death  ,

And  acting as if I am tied up,  I came   here ,

Even for that  there is a reason, please  hear,

I wanted  to tell you   what  is good for you.

Intelligent  people   should remove  that  bad knowledge  .

Which  is more   for people  who are ignorant ,

And  if they do .they  are  believed by the   world as  kind souls,

As that   teaching to the ignorant  would lead to  their salvation.

Sir , please   think in your mind   the way of the world,

And do not get   drowned   in to the sea  of passion,

Oh  one with ten faces , leave out it this   Rakshasa  nature,

And    embrace      the   ways  of salvation,

As that would   definitely  destroy the fear  of birth and death,

And that  which is not this  , leads  to domestic sorrow,

And you are suitable to receive   the knowledge  of the Brahman,

As you are wonderful and is born in a clan of good people*.

        *Ravana is a great  grand son of Brahma

Throw out  passion , anger  , hatred , miserliness  and desire,

Through   the knowledge   of the philosophy,

Oh son of Visravas, the son of Pulasthya  who was  the son of Brahma,

Do not   get attached   to the Rakshasa  nature  ,

And by studying  Rakshasas , devas, men  , birds  animals   and snakes  ,

Please  leave out the feeling that body is the soul,

And by getting attached  to that  property of nature, you would be tied to it,

And please   understand that     body is not the soul.

One who is filled with nectar , one who is not born , one who is  pure  ,

One who does not have a second , the Imperishable one,

One filled with joy , one who is alone  , the divine one  ,

One who is simple , one without comparison ,one who cannot be measured,

One who is not clear  , one who is not confused,

One without properties, one who does not have stains ,

One  who is not interested  , one   who is pure  ,

One who is in divine acts , one who is endless , one who is primeval,

The lord  , One who is forever  , one who is shapeless,

One who is the soul, the divine   Brahmam ,

One who cannot be understood by Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva,

One  who is studied by Vedantha, one who cannot be studied by the wise,

One who pervades all over , understand him as pervader of illusion, Oh Lord,

One who is all pervading divinity , one who teaches truth ,  one who is perennial,

Understand  that the all bodies of universe  are temporary ,

And that  birth  , aging and death   are   full of sorrow.

For getting salvation  , I would teach you  ,

A technique which I have  learnt , please understand it clearly,

By having  devotion to Hari   always in your  mind,

Your soul would   definitely   get purified ,

Your mind which would be devoid of sins   would become clean,

And certainly  in you the wisdom about God will arise  in your mind.

By  the  very pure  mind  obtained   by  understanding and belief ,

In  the principle  of God and the pure joy  got out of this experience,

Chant  always  “Rama, Rama”   which is the two lettered   chant ,

 Which burns   the forest of Rakshasas,

Leave out attachment to  the domestic life  and daily,

Fix firmly   the  ind on  the feet of Rama   by meditation.

If  little of this knowledge  is in the mind of a man,

He   will get   all that he wants    and so  immediately,

Pray  the lotus feet  of Vishnu  which removes   the fear of domestic life  ,

Which is loved  by devotees   and which  shines like billions of suns.

By praying      the two lotus like feet  of Vishnu,

Please   leave out this sorrow   and start  praying .

Please  simply  throw away the mischief from the mind   

And   find out the way   to go to the Vaikunta world,

And do not fall down  daily   by  desiring  ,

For someone else’s   wealth and wife  ,

And with devotion and belief    always   serve ,

Madhava  , the God of all   who has lotus leaf like eyes  ,

Who is Narayana  ,  who loves people who surrender to him,

Who is the divine Purusha, divine  soul  and one  who cannot be divided.

Surrender and fall at   his  lotus like feet,

Though you have  done    several sins earlier  ,

Since no one has as much mercy as him,

For he is the  one  who gives away enmity   and  so with happiness,

Think  of the lord of the Raghu clan

There would not be   another  birth for you, Oh friend,

Please remember   these  words are   from sage Sanaka,

And whatever I have told is  the truth  and accepted  by lord Brahma.

The nectar  like words told by the son of wind God,

Were heard   with very great anger  by the ten faced one,

And all his twenty eyes  burnt like embers,

Amd rolling   them all well   and blinking them he told,

“Cut to pieces   this one who is like a gingelly  seed,

I have never seen false  pride like this with any one else,

Would any other being   dare  to ,

Sit with me like an equal   and tell me like this,’

I am not able  to see respect  the humility  in him,

And he is a sinner  , a bad soul and an adamant one,

Tell me , tell me   a word called “ my Rama”  ,

Who is the forest living   Sugreeva today?

I would kill al of them   and also Janaki,

And also  you,  who is an extremely bad one.

Becoming greatly angry  hearing   the words  of,

The ten faced one , biting his teeth  that chief of monkeys told,

“You think that   you are   very great , that  is okay,

Along with you   even if   one crore  people,

Who are thinking  that  they are  Ravana  the lords of Rakshasas,

Oppose  me  , it is definite  that they  are not sufficient,

To my little finger  and what can you do , oh dirty one.”

“Ivide  nisicharar  oruvar  Ayudha paniyai ,

Hearing the   words of the son of  wind god,

He told  immediately,  those who were  standing near him,
“Is there not one  armed  Rakshasa  here,

Go and  kill this thief.”

Athinnu punar ivanoru  adayalamundakki  naam,

Ayakenam , athallo  nrupochitham.”

 

At that time  when  one of them  neared  him,

Vibheeshana told   slowly,

“No no, it  is bad to kill an emissary  ,

Please tell  that  it is not proper for a king,

And suppose   we kill him immediately  ,

How will Rama  know  about it there ?

For that   we should make  a sign on him,

And send him back  ,and that would be proper for kings.”

 

Ithi sadasi  Dasavadana   sahaja  vachanena  than,

The ten faced one  hearing the words of his brother  addressed ,

To the Assembly  said , “If so let  it be done that way.”

“To the monkeys   the source of strength  is not,

The face or hand or legs   but  tail is their source of strength.

Let us  immediately cover it with cloth ,

Set fire to it and take him all over the city,

With the chief Rakshasas playing drums   ,

And shouting  “The thief who has come  at night”,

In a   big tone  so that  every body would be able to hear,

And take  him  in all directions and also shout,

“know that he is traitor   and powerless  one” ,

So that  other monkeys  will banish him from their society.”

Using  cloths dipped   in oil and ghee,

When they were  tying it to the tail speedily,

That one of immense strength  , became like a huge mountain,

And his tail   became    extremely big  ,

And though all the cloth collected was used  ,

Much of the tail   was still left to be covered.

They brought  silk cloths from all houses  ,

After    great   search   and then tied  it,

Even that was finished and still tail was remaining,

And they went here and there  and again brought,

Cloth dipped   and dripping  in oil and   ghee

And also tied the   divine   silk cloths ,

And realizing that his tail was big and that  no cloth was left ,

And also oil   was completely   over,

And some people told   that  ,

This is waste  , he is a pure one and divine ,

And   who all  are going to be destroyed by this?”

 

“Analamiha vasanam   ithi , analamini  valadhikku  ,

“We do not have   cloth to tie   and  let us ,

Light   fire  to the tail now   without delay.”

And then   at that time the Rakshasas  lit the fire,

At the  tip of   the tail  after   tying   him strongly  ,

By strong rope pieces   and carrying  that ,

Monkey chief  after  verifying  that  he has been tied tightly,

Those   crooked minded ones  shouted   that “here is the thief”,

And creating lot of noise   and they went to the city ,

With   beating and beating of  several drums,

And when they reached   the western gate  ,

That  son of wind god  changed I himself n to a  very small form,,

And the ropes   which were tied  on him came out.

 

Balamodavan  athi chapalam achala nibha gathranai,

With strength and with great speed   he became like a mountain,

And  the  ties were  broken and he   raised high  to the top,

And with a speed of wind  reached   the   tallest   tower,

And he jumped and killed those   people who were carrying him,

And stood there   as if he   was standing there  rubbing the moon,

And then he climbed  the top of a  gem studded  mansion,

And then climbed  again and again on groups of  homes ,

Also   on   homes built with   gold and gems   and that  son of wind god,

Set fire   and set fire   to all these  and fire   went on increasing .

With his natural  indecisive character  , he,

Started  burning    the gem studded  palaces  ,

And also  the elephants ,   horses chariots   , rows   of soldiers,

 Gardens    which can be entered in to for enjoyment,

And those  fire flames   and the heart of the  son  of wind god,

Became very bright    and went to  the  place of  Vishnu  (Sky?)

And those   flames of fire  appeared      to  burn in such a way,

That  they wanted to inform the  news of the burning  ,

Of the  home of the Rakshasas   to Indra  ,

Competing  with each other  like “ me first , you   first “,

And  the flames almost reached   the sky.

The Lanka   which was   filled  with wealth ,

By the   pure gems   that   came from the earth,

And when   the son of wind god  burnt   it,

Wonder of wonders  was filled  with ash  ,

Except the house    of the brother of the ten faced one,

The houses of enemy of devas  became baked  in the fire  ,

And the  dear  servant   of the   lord of the Raghu clan,

Saved     only    the house   of Vibheeshana.

After   the gem studded   homes     were completely burnt,

The  ladies   in them started   wailing  ,

With heads   with growing hair   and  feet being burnt ,

The soul also went away from body  and they  fell dead  on ground,

And  the bodies melted and melted  and they fled here and there ,

And climbed    on very tall buildings  ,

And that  one who burns came there also and burnt  ,

And they fell down struggled    and died,

“My son  , lover   , father, husband  , alas,

This is my fate , Oh god of fate  ,

The body melting and turning along with death ,

Is there   no one   to stop it , Oh Siva, Oh Shiva,

This problem has been created by the lord of Rakshasa   clan, it is definite,

And there  is no other reason for it.”

That Sinner   who is the ten faced one forcefully,

Took away wealth and wives   of others,

He does   not know that  it is not proper  and did due to arrogance ,

And this is definitely the result of that  ,

And that great sinner  fell in passion with a human lady,

And because  of that the danger came to others also,

For wise  people    should  only carefully do,

Bad and good deeds   and good and bad actions.

Becoming weak due to the   arrow of god of love ,

With force  he  caught    hold  of ,

Very great women with great virtue  ,

And that  passionate   one  raped  them,

And  the religious spirit  in their mind  ,

Has  caught   our country   badly.

When the Rakshasis were talking  so many things,

They were burnt   as they were standing itself,

And to get protection they ran by various ways,

The trees  were burnt broke and fell down,

And that  emissary of the chief  of Raghu clan,

In a second made   the seven hundred yojanas  of ,

The country of the Rakshasas,

In to a  wholesome  meal of various dishes ,

And gave it to  the very satisfied relegious spirit  .

 

Laghutharam  anila   thanayanum   amrutha nidhi thannile  ,

Pavakan ishta   sakhiyaka karanam,

Pathi niratha yakiya Janaki  deviyaal,

Prarthikunnathakjayalum   karunaa  vasaal.

 

Easily that  son of wind god  dipped his tail,

In the ocean and   put out the fire,

And tht son of wind did not get any burns  ,

Because   the fire god was his close   friend,

And due to  the merciful   prayer  of Sita,  

Who was  devoted  to her husband .

 

Avani thanaya krupaa  vaibhavam   adbutham,

Athyantha seethalanayithu vahniyum,

Rajanichara  kula vipina  pavakanakiya  ,

Pankaja lochanabe  bhajicheeduvin,

Bhuvanapathi  bhujagapathi   sayana bhajanam    bhuvi,

Bhootha   deivathma sambhootha   thapaham.

 

The  grace   of the son of wind god is wonderful,

To him even fire became   very cool,

The great people   meditating  on the name Of Rama,

Which is   the fire to the  forest  of Rakshasas,

Though  they are attached to son  , wealth   and wife  ,

Cross   the   fire  which gives  three  type of pains,

And how   can   the emissary  who fulfills his wishes ,

Get  sorrow   by the natural fire?

If you are   at present    born as a human being,

Please  pray  to the   lotus   eyed one  ,

Who is the lord of earth  ,  one   who lies  down on  the lord of snakes,

For  destroying the  pain from  three  type of pains  .

 

Thadanu  kapi kula   varanum   avani thanayaa  padam,

Manasi thava   cheruthu  parithapam mundakola,

Madbharam  karya mini   jAnkathmaje .”

 

Afterwards  the best of the monkey clan  went  and saluted,

The feet  of the daughter  of earth  and said,

”I will now start my journey to the other shore,

Please   give me leave to go to Rama .

The best of Raghu clan   , his brother  and son of Sun God,

Would come speedily   with a endless  army .

Let you not have  even  a little worry in mind,

Because oh Daughter of Janaka ,  the job is now mine.”

To him who saluted and told like this with great humility,

Sita   told    with sorrow in her mind ,

“When I saw you , you told the story of my husband,

And the pain  in my mind   went away,

How Can I  live here   with sorrow,

Without hearing the welfare  of my husband.”

 

Janaka nrupa   duhithya  girimingane kettavan,

“Kalaka  sucham ini  viraham  alamathinudan mama,

Skandamaaroha  ,kshanena jnan  kondu poi,

Thava Ramana   savidam upagamya yojippichu,

Thapam asesham  madhaiva   theerthiduvan.”

 

Hearing the words of king Janaka  ,

Due   to growing pity on her , he  saluted and told   ,

“Throw away the sorrow and pain of parting with your loved one,

You please climb on my  shoulder and within a second  ,

I would take you before your husband  and after joining  with him,

All your pain and worries   would be destroyed.”

 

Pavana sutha   vachanamithi   kettu Vaidehiyum,

“Athinnu thava karuthum  alavilloru   dandam,

Kandakne konnu kondu poka aasu maam.

Marivodoru   nisi rahasi   kondu poyaal athu,

Mal Prana  nadha keerthikku  poraa drudam.”

 

After hearing the words of the son of wind  God, Sita,

Becoming very happy   saw him and told,

“Since my soul  does have   the pain,

As much as you think,  as  of now I have got belief,

That  the one with a good history   would,

Come here   with great strength ,

By drying the sea   by his    divine arrows ,

And building a bridge   on the sea  ,

And cross it along with  the monkey army  ,

And kill the one who punishes   the three worlds ,

And would take me back speedily  ,

And hiding in the night  if I am taken secretly  ,

It  does not behove   to the  fame of my husband,”

 

Raghu kulaja varanivide   vannu yudham   cheythu,

Let the star   of Raghu clan come here , fight the war,

Kill Ravana  and take me back,

Oh son of the speedy wind  , you  work with this aim,

And till those days , I would conserve  my soul.”

Telling like this to him  that Goddess Lakshmi   sent him back,

After that the   son of wind god , saluted  the mother of the world,

Bid her farewell  and  urgently saw  the ocean and jumped.

 

5.11 Hanumande  Prathyagamanam

Return of Hanuman.

He  then shouted  so as to spin the three worlds,

And the monkey  group  heard  that  deep sound ,

And said , “think that  what we  heard  is a herald ,

To make us understand   that  he has been successful ,

And there  is no doubt it is sound of Hanuman,

And let us watch  for we can understand it from the sound.”

 

Kapi nivahamithi   bahu vidham  parayum vidhou,

When the group of monkeys were  talking in various ways ,

They could see  the head of Hanuman on the  mountain,

“Oh monkey heroes , I saw  Sita,

By the blessing of the hero of Kakustha clan,

And I burnt completely   the blessed Lanka of the Rakshasas,

As well as     the garden there  and  I saw ,

Ravana   the enemy   of devas  with wonder ,

And let us go quickly   to tell this to Rama.

Oh Jambhava   and other monkeys let  us go.”

Prasavanachalam kandu meevidinaar.

 

At that time they honoured   the son of wind god,

Embraced him tightly  kissed him at the tip of his tail,

With joy, for  the sake    the son of wind god  ,

Together   they cheered  him loudly ,

And when those chiefs of monkeys started  walking ,

And became tired , they reached  near Prasavana  mountain.

There they saw   a garden  owned   by Sugreeva ,

Which was full of flowers , leaves, fruits  , honey* plant,

Surrounded by bushes and  that  group of monkeys,

To satiate  their hunger  started  telling with great desire

“This honeyed city  is full of  varieties of  sweet fruits ,

Let us  eat and quench our thirst   and  ,

Go before the son of Sun God   and tell the stories,

Slightly   delayed ,Please permit us to do that”,

When they  requested this  with desire ,   to Angadha 

And he  immediately   consented   to their request,

And all of them entered    the honey garden.

   *Could also be alcoholic beverage

 

Parichodu athi Madura  Madhu panavum cheythavar,

With joy   they ate the very sweet fruits and drank honey  ,

And when they were  eating   well ripened    fruits  ,

Dadhimukha  who was looking after  the garden,

As per  the orders  of Sugreeva  and was ,

Guarding that  garden sent  security guards with sticks ,

And when they neared   and prevented them,

Those  monkeys  along with Hanuman  , using fist fight ,

Hit them   and the security  were  scared by them.

 

Thwarithamadha  Dadhimukhanum aasu Sugreevane  ,

Immediately Dadhimuka   went speedily ,

To Sugreeva  and told  about the happenings,

“The  monkey force   under  the son of Thara,

Have  partially destroyed  your honey forest ,

As per your merciful orders   I had,

Been looking after  it with great care .

The grandson of Sun God  and others,

Came    and  defeated  my   servants ,

And have destroyed the honey forest now,”

Told  he  and hearing the words  of his uncle  ,

Sugreeva    with growing joy  ,

Told  it  to Rama   who  was a pure soul.

 

“Pavana thanayadhikal  karyavum sadhichu ,

Param thelinju  varunnithu nirnayam.

Madhuvana athu alla yennakil   yenne,

Bahumaniyathe   chennu  kanka yillarume  .

Avanum athu kettu   uzhari chennu  chollinaan,

The  son of wind god and others have  completed the job,

And    this   is very clear   and definite  ,

For  otherwise  no one without  bothering ,

For my orders   would go and visit the  Honey garden.

You go and tell them to come here quickly ,

And Please   do not have   any sorrow over this.”

And hearing   that   he    went and told,

That   to Hanuman and others   with respect.

The son of wind god, Angadha , Jambhavan and others,

Because they heard   the   words   of Sugreeva,

And they  due to the happiness they had at that time,

Walked   speedily      and went towards  Kishkinda.

And prayed ,  the  famous gem among men Rama ,

Blessed man , best among men , the divine one,

The  God of all who lives   in the heart of Lord Shiva  ,

The blue lotus   eyed one , one who is served by Indra,

One who sleeps on lord of serpents, pure one, lord of three worlds,

He who is complete , brother of Indra  , Madhava ,

One who rides on Garuda  , Kesava  ,

The husband of  daughter of lotus , Ancient Lord  ,

One whose two feet are  worshipped by  the ornament of serpent clan,

One who is worshipped by Brahma, One who does not have any characters,

Lord of earth , Lord  of  fishes, Lord of all, my lord,

The friend  of the son of  the   Sun God,

One who is in the heart of wise, enemy of Rakshasa,

One who has taken birth in  the clan of Sun God,

One who is the chief among the strong, the god of death to  blessed people  ,

Son of a king, husband   of  daughter of earth,

One who takes care  of universe, one who has face like lotus,

One who is similar to god of love, One who is totally  merciful,

And  Sugreeva    and  Lakshmana  and

Seeing them all  sitting in the forest,

They saluted them by falling on the floor.

They again saluted   the king of monkeys  ,

And with full happiness  the son of Anjana told,

“I saw with  pity  The honourable lady there,

In the home of the  Rakshasa  without any problem.

She immediately  asked   about your welfare ,

As well as that of the  son of Sumithra with respect.

In the asoka   garden with  unkempt hair,

She was living below a Simsapa   tree.

With a penance of starving   with a very lean body  day after day,

Surrounded by   the ladies of Rakshasa clam ,

With  grief and ebbing tears in pain  shedding and shedding tears ,

Alas,  Always  chanting  and chanting “Rama, Rama”,

Crying that tender bodied one  , was living  and at that time,

I  assuming a very small body size, sitting on a tree  branch,

With   joy   and great  peace .

I then informed her   your nectar  like  story

When she was  in the small hermitage ,  

Without you  and your younger brother ,

How the ten faced one took her from there ,

And about the treaty that  you signed with Sugreeva,

About the killing   of the  son of Indra  ,

And how the king of the monkeys ,

Had sent hoards of monkeys  to search for  her all over the world ,

And that  I am one of them  who had come there ,

Bu crossing the ocean  suddenly.

I am  Minister  of Sugreeva,  the son of wind god,

Emissary of Rama   and my name  is Hanuman

I have  found you out without  much difficulty,

This is my luck, great luck, I am blessed ,

Today   all my efforts   have greatly succeeded ,

The seeing of goddess Lakshmi is the destroyer of all sins ,

Janaki   hearing all   that  I told,

Slowly and slowly  thought  in her mind.

 

“Sravanayugalamrutham kena may sravitham,

“From where  am I hearing this nectar  to my ears?”

He  is definitely   a blessed great  one ,

And let  that blessed one come before my eyes ,

By the  grace   the valorous  man , Rama.”

Hearing these   words     from the daughter of Mithila,

In the monkey form of very minute  proportions,

I saluted  her with humility   and fell  at her feet,

And with  great surprise that honourable lady asked.”

 

“Arivathiunnu paraka, nee yarennathu yennodu”

“For my knowledge , please  tell me  who you are?”

And after  asking this type of questions ,

I told her  all the news about  the god(Rama),

And that  blue lotus petal eyed one believed me.

And at that   time to remove the doubt in her mind,

I gave her  the ring with great respect.

Taking that  in her soft hands speedily,

And washed it  with her flowing tears,

And hugged it to her head, eyes  and neck,

Speedily   and wailed greatly,

“Son of wind god tell, All my sorrow,

To the lotus eyed one, Did you not see it friend,

See  all the Rakshasis  give  me trouble,

Please go and  tell “ she told.

 

“Thava charitham akhilam  alivode unarthichu jnan,

Thambiyodum  kapi senayodum  drutham,

Vayam avanipathiye viravodu kooti kondu,

Vannu dasasya kulavum mudichudan,.

SAkrutham ayodhyapurikkasu kondu pom,

SAnthapam ullil undakaruthu yethume.”

 

Then with pity  I told all the news  about you to her,

Along with brother  and the monkey army ,

We  would  bring the king of the world ,

And after  coming there destroy the clan of Ravana,

And Take you honorably  to the city of Ayodhya,

And so you should not have any sorrow in  your mind.”

 

Dasaratha suthannu Viswasarthamai ini,

For  the belief  of the son of Dasaratha.

Oh lady, please  give me  a symbol,

And again tell me a  identifying word,

So that  the blessed man will believe it.”

And as soon as I told this to the daughter of earth,

Immediately she gave the gem studded hair brooch  , with respect.”

 

“Kamala mukhi kanivinodu Chithra koodachale ,

Kanthanai vasikkum  naloru dinam,.

Kadina thara nakha nikarena  peedichoru,

“With pathos   that lotus eyed one ,  told ,

The story about the time in Chithrakoota mountain  ,

When one day when she was with her husband  ,

A crow attacked   her  strongly  with his beak and claw

And asked  me to remind you of that  story.

After that she  spoke to me as well  as cried ,

Several times  and informed the pain in her heart,

And at that time   I with various tasty  dishes of  my words,

Consoled   that lady with Bimba fruit coloured lips,

And later   took farewell  from her   properly,

And came back  and I also did one more thing.”

 

Akhila  nisi chara kula  pathikku  abheeshtaspadam,

AAraamamokke   thakarthen athinnudan,

Papikale  kola   cheythen  asankhyakam,

Dasa vadana   suthane  muhur aksha kumarane,

Danda   daralayathinnu  ayacheedinen.

 

Immediately   I  destroyed    a garden  ,

Which was very dear   to the Lord of all Rakshasas,

And  I killed   innumerable  Rakshasa  sinners,

Who came   for a war with a wounded  feeling,

And later  sent   the place  of God of death,

Aksha kumara  who is the son of the ten faced one.

Then got tied by Brahmastra   sent by the son of Ravana,

I saw and told the  king of the Rakshasa,

Some little things   and   then I burnt ,

The city of Lanka   and again met  the pious  lady,

Without fear  , saluted her feet  , took her leave  ,

And jumped back and crossed   the ocean,

And saluted  your  honey like  tender feet,

Oh treasure of mercy , I am your slave  , Protect me , protect me.

Hearing these   words   of the son of wind god,

The husband of Lakshmi  took great  liking to him and told,

“You have   done a job that  is difficult even for devas ,

And  even Sugreeva   is extremely pleased   about it,

For the help that  you did to me with love  ,

I am giving you  everything   that  is mine.

There  is no compensation  in this world,

For what   you  did  with love.”

 

Punarapi Ramavaran  Marutha puthrane  ,

Poorna modham   punarneedinaan  aadharaal,

Urasi  muhoorapi  muhuranachu   pulkedinaan,

“Orkkedo  , Marutha puthra bhagyodhayam,

Bhuvana thala mathil  oruvan  ingane yillaho,

Poorna  punyougha  soubhagyam  undayedo.”

 

Again that Lord Rama  embraced  tightly  ,

The son of wind god   and caressed him.

After  hugging him   again and again said,

“Remember  , the son of  wind god who is the  sunrise of luck,

I the entire   world   there  is no one  like him,

Today a  complete   blessed luck has  come to us.”

 

Paramasivan ithi  Raghu kuladhipanthanude  ,

Pavanamaya   Kadayarul cheythathu ,

Bhagawathi Bhavani  Parameswari kettu,

Bhakthi  paravasayai  vanangeedinaal.

Kili makal  athi sarasam ingane  chonnathu  ,

Kettu Maha lokarum theliyename

 

Hearing, the very holy story of the lord of Raghu clan,

 As told by  Paramasiva , the Goddess  Bhavani  ,

Who is the goddess  of all saluted  him with  devotion.

And the parrot  interestingly told like this ,

And hearing this let all people  become blessed.

 

Ithi Adhyathm   Ramayane  Uma Maheswara SAmvadhe  ,

Sundara  kandam samaptham

 

Thus ends   the  pretty chapter  of Adhyathma Ramayana,

Which is a part of the discussion between Shiva and Parvathi.
