Kishkinda Kandam 15-30

Kishkinda Kandam

Book of KIshkinda

Translated by

  15. Tara tries to dissuade  Vali from going to fight.

(When Vali  starts angrily     to fight again with Sugreeva, Tara his queen, tells him that   Sugreeva would not come to fight again without any help. She tells him    that from spies Angadha has heard that  Rama and Lakshmana  have  promised to help him. She tells him that they are formidable    and not to go  to fight.)
Vali who had gone to his private apartments heard , the  huge  sound of  great Sugreeva  and got angry with his brother .                                                                                                                                                  15.1
Hearing that sound which shook all the beings , Vali lost his intoxicated mood and became   greatly angry.                                                                                                                                                                     15.2
Vali who was shining like gold  was   all over influenced by anger , lost all his luster like that   of the eclipsed sun.                                                                                                                                                         15.3
Vali who was gnashing his teeth due to his anger shined like fire  and appeared like a pond full of uprooted lotus  plants.                                                                                                                                       15.4
Hearing the intolerable sound that monkey  started rushing out  with quick and strong steps as if he intended to break the earth.                                                                                                                             15.5
Then Tara hugged him , looked at him with love  and companionship  and told  good advice to him who was   greatly agitated .                                                                                                                                        15.6
“Oh valiant one ,  gently leave out this anger which comes out with a speed of river from you. The garland that you wear might would be taken out  at day break.”                                                              15.7
“Oh great monkey , war has to be done seeing the time . You do not have enemies nor   vanity  with you.”                                                                                                                                                                      15.8
“You are going out from here rashly and I think it is not good for you  and hear from me why  are being prevented by me.”                                                                                                                                              15.9
“Earlier he summoned you for war with great anger  and when he attacked , he was thrown away and ran in all directions.”                                                                                                                                        15.10
“He was defeated by you and specially hurt by you  and when immediately he again calls you for war,  a doubt arises in my mind.”                                                                                                                               15.11
“ You can see that with pride and determination  he is roaring . For this starting    of that shouting again ,   the reason does not appear to be small.”                                                                                                      15.12
“I do not think    that Sugreeva has come here without any other help  and he is  depending on some unflinching support  for this roaring of his.”                                                                                                15.13
“By Nature  Sugreeva is intelligent and  has expertise   and  he would not enter in to friendship without testing that person’s  power.”                                                                                                                      15.14
“Oh valorous  one , I have heard earlier    from Angadha  when he spoke to me about this matter  and I would tell you  about that good  words.”                                                                                                    15.15
“Our Son had gone in side the forest  and the following news  was revealed to him   by our  spies.”  
“ The sons of the king of Ayodhya , Rama and Lakshmana who had   been born in the clan of Ikshuvaku     and who are  valiant  and difficult to be defeated  in battle  have reached here   to help Sugreeva , making him difficult to defeat.”                                                                                                                     15.17
“Your brother has  now got the help of the famous  Rama who  is an expert in warfare , who has  killed powerful enemies  and is burning like the fire at deluge .”                                                                       15.18
“He is like a sheltering tree to the pious  and to the destitutes  and the ultimate protection  to the distressed  and the only one who can be called famous.”                                                                         15.19
“He is endowed with intellect and knowledge  and stood firmly by the words of his father . He is a great one with good qualities resembling a great mountain    with minerals.”                                              15.20
“ So it is not proper for you to have him as enemy  as he is honourable  , cannot be defeated , and is of immeasurable  greatness  in war.”                                                                                                                15.21
“Oh Valorous one  , I desire to tell you a few things  and I am not trying to find fault with you.  Please listen and act according to it  , As I desire only your  welfare .”                                                               15.22
“Oh Valorous king  , with speed consecrate   Sugreeva as the Yuvaraja  .Why this useless enmity   as he is your younger brother.”                                                                                                                                    15.23
“I think for the sake of your welfare  develop friendship with  Rama  and keeping away   enmity with Sugreeva  and start  loving him.”                                                                                                                 15.24
“Oh Monkey , he is your  only younger brother   whom you should love and it  does it matter where he is as   he is always your relative.”                                                                                                              15.25   
“I do not see any body else in this earth who is a relative equal to him. Treat him with wealth and respect and afterwards  leave away the enmity towards him and keep him by your side .”     15.26-15.27
“Sugreeva with his broad neck is the only  great relation to you  and so show him affection as a brother and there is no other alternative than this.”                                                                                                 15.28
“If you think that I love you , if you think that I am interested in your welfare , please listen to my entreaties  and do according to my words.”                                                                                                  15.29
“Please  become peaceful   and hear What I am muttering which will be useful to you , you should not follow only  anger  and it is not proper for you to fight with princes of Kosala kingdom  who are like Indra in  splendour.”                                                                                                                                                    15.30
Like that Tara  spoke these useful words    to Vali  and he being under the  influence of God of death  and  about to die  did not like the  her good words ,                                                                                            15.31

This is the end of the  fifteenth    chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

16 . Vali is  shot  by Rama and falls down

(Vali justifies himself assuring that Rama  , the follower of Dharma would not hurt him. He promises Tara , that he would not kill Sugreeva.   He goes  out and fights with Sugreeva. Seeing that   Sugreeva   is weakening , Rama  shoots a great arrow at Vali. Vali  is his and falls down.)

When Tara who   was having  a face like that of  lord of stars was  speaking , Vali berated her words   and  spoke thus.                                                                                                                                                              16.1
“ Oh blessed lady , That brother  is  an enemy   and  is roaring with  excitement  and for   what reason should  I tolerate  him?”                                                                                                                                       16.2
“ Oh coward, For the invincible heroes  who would not  turn back in a war , tolerating an insult is worse    than death.”                                                                                                                                                            16.3
“I am not able to tolerate , desiring to fight a war  and that Sugreeva   is shouting   like one with   a bad neck and creating a great commotion.”                                                                                                            16.4
“Do not become sad about what Rama will do against me , because being a follower of Dharma and one who is thankful , how can he commit a sin against me?”                                                                                16.5
“Go back along with other ladies and why are   you following me ? You have shown your interest in me , Oh Tara  and you have shown sufficient devotion towards  me.”                                                                  16.6
“I will go and fight with Sugreeva accepting his challenge  and you may leave out your anxiety as I will not kill him but only destroy his pride .”                                                                                                             16.7
“In the battle field  I will do whatever I desire with him , I will hit him with my fist    as well as trees  and hurt him and he  will run back with his injuries .”                                                                                             16.8
“That cruel minded  would not be able to tolerate    my fast pace in war .Oh Tara you have tried to help me and exhibited your love towards me.”                                                                                                         16.9
“I am making a promise on my soul that I would return  from the war  with people  and I will return after winning over my brother.”                                                                                                                                  16.10
The lady with a sweet speech Tara  embraced Vali  , went  slowly round him in Pradakshina   while she was weeping  modestly.                                                                                                                                       16.11
Then she who was  an expert in Manthras   wished him well , went back  extremely to his private apartments along with other ladies .                                                                                                                16.12
When Tara and other ladies entered in their own houses , Vali preparing to go from the town hissed like a serpent .                                                                                                                                                              16.13
That greatly lustrous very angry Vali  breathed heavily , moved his sight  all over the place wishing to see  his enemy .                                                                                                                                                            16.14
Then he saw the very cultured  , gold complexioned Sugreeva  standing there glowing  like fire.       16.15
When he saw the greatly valorous Sugreeva standing ready for a battle , he tied  his loin cloth tightly  and went in to steep rage.                                                                                                                                   16.16
That valorous Vali tied  his cloths tightly  and went towards Sugreeva with a clenched fist , waiting impatiently for a fight .                                                                                                                                        16.17
Sugreeva also clenched his fist  and advanced even more eagerly  towards Vali wearing a golden necklace .                                                                                                                                                                16.18
Then Vali eyes reddened with anger  told Sugreeva who was an expert in war  and was advancing swiftly to pounce on the enemy.                                                                                                                                    16.19
“The fist of mine in which my fingers have been tightly packed would hit you with great speed and take away your life, so move away.                                                                                                                          16.20
When Vali told like this Sugreeva replied “My fist will hit on your head and take     away your soul.” 
When Sugreeva was approaching him in great speed Vali hit him with his fist   and like a water fall from a river Sugreeva vomited blood .                                                                                                                          16.22
Sugreeva moved freely from there , uprooted a huge Sala tree and hit him on the limbs of Vali , who looked like a mountain hit by a thunderbolt .                                                                                                16.23
Hit by the huge Sala tree , Vali was shaken up like  a heavily loaded ship full of caravan  travelling in the sea.                                                                                                                                                                         16.24
Both of them with terrible strength, fierce in appearance seeking the weak points in the other advanced towards each other, striking at the enemy. They were as fast as Garuda  and grew like the Sun and Moon in the sky.                                                                                                                                                               16.25
Vali grew in strength  and  in valour  but the greatly valorous Sugreeva   the son of Sun God  slowly weakened.                                                                                                                                                             16.26
With his pride and strength crushed by Vali  , Sugreeva  became less valorous  and anguished at Vali for having shown  his comparative smallness .                                                                                                   16.27
Both of them fought the battle with branches and the  tops of trees  and  with their nails that were as hard as tips of thunderbolts, fists, knees, legs and feet like the demon Vritara  fought  against  Lord Indra.                                                                                                                                                          16.28-16.29
Those  monkeys  who lived in the forest  hit each other like a cloud hitting another cloud    and produced great noise  and also showing  each other’s blood stains.                                                                           16.30
Then  Rama  saw the king of monkeys  looking here and there  , again and again  and observed that Sugreeva was losing his strength.                                                                                                                     16.31
Then Rama seeing that the king of the monkeys was in great distress  and that hero searched   for a suitable arrow  to kill Vali.                                                                                                                                 16.32
Then he   stringed  an arrow which looked like a snake , then pulled that bow which was like the coming of the wheel of the God of death.                                                                                                                    16.33
By hearing the twang of the bow  the winged and feathered birds were greatly disturbed  and started flying in   different directions possibly thinking that  deluge in  the clearing.                                         16.34
When the great  arrow was released by Raghava , it went with sound of a thunderbolt , flashing lights similar to lightning  and it hit the chest of Vali .                                                                                              16.35
That greatly lustrous king of monkeys  who was proud of his valour  was hit speedily by that arrow  and fell on the earth.                                                                                                                                                    16.36
Val fell down unconscious  losing all his luster , like the flag of Indra hoisted on Aswathi day    and thrown out  after Indradwaja celebrations.                                                                                                    16.37
That best among men  released   the best among arrows decorated by silver and gold and which was like  the death at the time of deluge , which was shining , which was meant to kill the enemy and looked like the third eye  of Lord Shiva.                                                                                                                              16.38
Then dampened by the blood flowing like water , just like an Asoka tree full  of  flowers   standing  on a mountain  , the son of  Indra   fell unconscious  , like the flag  of Indra   which was   thrown out on the ground after    the festival.                                                                                                                                16.39

This is the end of the  sixteenth     chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

17.Vali accuses Rama   of  doing a dishonest killing

(When Rama approaches Vali, he accuses him of going against Dharma by killing some one   who was not fighting him.  He further says that his meat cannot be eaten .  He accuses Rama  of doing a dishonest   and despicable act.)

That Vali who was an expert in war  struck down by Rama , immediately fell down like  a tree which was   cut.                                                                                                                                                                           17.1
On that earth was lying down Vali who was decorated in all limbs  by gold  who fell down like the flag of Indra  when  the ropes tying it  were loosened.                                                                                               17.2
When  the king of groups of monkeys  fell down on the earth , the earth looked like    the dull sky after the moon has set.                                                                                                                                                 17.3
Though he had fallen on the ground , the body of that great one  had not lost its splendour  , the soul  the luster and the valour had not left the body.                                                                                            17.4
The divine garland  given by Indra  which was decorated by gold and diamonds   gave the monkey chief   the luster , life  and  splendour.                                                                                                                         17.5
That Valorous monkey chief  with the golden necklace  looked like   rain cloud with border glow   of the twilight .                                                                                                                                                                   17.6
His garland , his body and that great  fatal arrow  were crafted in splendour in three ways , though he  had fallen down.                                                                                                                                                   17.7
That arrow led that valorous one     in the path to heaven  as Rama’s arrow released from his bow  led you to salvation.                                                                                                                                                  17.8
He had fallen on the ground like a fire that was extinguished  and that  respectable warrior looked round him slowly and looked like king Yayathi who  had fallen from heaven after exhausting his blessings and  like Sun God  who has fallen on earth at the time of  deluge . He was unassailable like the great Indra , the fierce Shiva and Upendra . That fallen Vali who was the son of great Indra  wearing a golden necklace  was having a chest like lion , long hands , burning face , tawny eyes of the monkey  and saw Rama accompanied  by Lakshmana  approaching him.                                                                  17.9-17.12
Vali after seeing Rama and the very strong Lakshmana  and spoke polite but harsh words which were according to Dharma ‘You are the son of the king who is famous,  pleasing to look at , born in a great family , lustrous and one who  has taken the penance of good character.”                            17.13-17.14
“What merit did you get  by killing me   when I was engaged otherwise , since I was hit by your arrow when I was engrossed in another battle?”                                                                                                 17.15
“Rama  all the world tells that you  are merciful , taking care of the welfare of people , compassionate , dispassionate ,  one who acts in proper time  and  firm in your penance .”                             17.16-17.17
“Oh king ,  control of the body, control of the mind , patience , righteousness, forbearance , truthfulness, valour  are qualities of a good king  as also punishing those    who do a crime.”                               17.18
“Primarily taking in to consideration your noble qualities , I came to fight with Sugreeva though  I was prevented by Tara.”                                                                                                                                     17.19
“A thought came in to mind then that  it would not be proper for you to attack  me when I was engaged in battle with others .”                                                                                                                                        17.20
“I thought that you who walk under the flag of righteousness    is not a fallen soul  and I did not know that you are a sinner  ,one who is deceitful and one who does evil deeds.”                                      17.21
“You are in fact a sinner who walks under the  guise of a good man, and I did not  know that  you  appear covered with Dharma which is only a pretext.”                                                                                         17.22
“Either in your city or in your country I have not  done any sin nor at any time  I have  not insulted you  and I am  only a monkey living in the forest and eating fruits and roots  and I was not fighting with you but with  others.”                                                                                                                               17.23-17.24
“You are a son of a king, famous  and good to look at  and a look at you shows that you are one who loves Dharma.”                                                                                                                                                  17.25
“Which person  born in the Kshatriya caste  who has heard Vedas   and who  does not have any doubt of Dharma  will do such a cruel act    under the guise of Dharma?”                                                             17.26
“Oh Rama, you are born in a royal family and are famous  as  the follower of Dharma  and then why are you running about  like a worthy person  when really you are really unworthy?”                               17.27
“ Oh king, Conciliation, charity , patience, Dharma, Truth , honesty  , valour and giving punishment  to the guilty   are  the duties  of a king.”                                                                                                           17.28
OH Rama , we are animals  who wander in the forest  subsisting on fruits and roots  and this is our nature    while you are  a man.”                                                                                                                     17.29 
“Normally  the battle is fought for land, gold and silver  and how is it that you are interested   in the fruits that I have ?”                                                                                                                                         17.30
“Diplomacy , discipline , reward and punishment  are the duties of the king  which is not a mixed up one and kings do not act only on  impulse.”                                                                                                       17.31
“You are one in whom your wishes are  important , angry , not balanced  and you are confused about duties of a king and shooting arrow on others.”                                                                                       17.32
“Oh lord of men, you are a liar  and do not  have faith in Dharma  and do not have stable intellect . and you are drawn by the senses towards  passionate acts.”                                                                       17.33
“Oh son of Kakustha  clan , due to killing me who is innocent by an arrow   and what will   good people tell about you  , who have done a despicable act?”                                                                                 17.34
“Anyone who kills  a king, a Brahmin  , cow , living beings , atheist  and one who marries before his elder sibling    will  go to hell.”                                                                                                                                 17.35
“A gossip monger , a mean fellow , killer of a friend , one  who molests the wife of his Guru  would definitely    go to   the hell where sinners  go.”                                                                                        17.36
“My skin  is not good to wear , my hairs and bones are not of any use and my meat would not be eaten by followers of Dharma   like you.”                                                                                                             17.37
“Oh Raghava Brahmins and Kshatriyas     are permitted to eat  only five nailed creatures like the porcupine, the hedgehog , alligator  , rabbit  and turtle.”                                                                       17.38
(Another translator  tells the animals a, a  kind of wild rodent, a kind of wild-boar, a kind of lizard, a hare and fifthly the turtle )
“Oh king, learned people do not even touch my skin  and they also do not eat my flesh as I am five nailed . Why have you killed me who is not fit to eat?”                                                                                        17.39
“Tara who is a lady who knows everything told me words which were good for me  and overlooking that I have come under the grip of death.”                                                                                                          17.40
“Oh son of Kakustha clan,  though you are a lord , you cannot protect this earth , like a wicked person cannot protect     a virtuous wife.”                                                                                                                  17.41
“  You are adamant  , dishonest , mean , dressed up in false humility  and a sinner and how did you become the son of the great soul Dasaratha.”                                                                                               17.42
“I have been killed by the hand of Rama  the elephant  , who has broken the chains  of character  and  went against conventions of good people  and thrown away    the goad of virtue.”                              17.43
“You have committed an inauspicious  act not suitable  to the noble people  and even after that  you talk about such acts    and move with people following Dharma.”                                                                    17.44
“You have exhibited  your valour  on people   who should  be neglected  while you should have exhibited it before those who offended you.”                                                                                                                 17.45
“Oh son of the king ,  had you directly fought a war with me , you would have today itself seen the world of dead people .”                                                                                                                                                 17.46
“You have killed me who cannot be defeated  by keeping yourself invisible  , like a drunken man killing a snake which is asleep.”                                                                                                                                       17.47
“Had you  met me earlier , I would have    got back your Maithili within a day .Had I not been killed by you to  please Sugreeva , I would have   brought you   Ravana by catching him in his neck.”  17.48-17.49
“Even if Maithili was hidden in the Patala  or even under the sea  as per your wishes like the   white  horse.”                                                                                                                                                                 17.50
“It is proper for my brother Sugreeva    to get the kingdom after my death  and your killing me in a war which is against Dharma is not proper.”                                                                                                       17.51
“If it is ordained  by time other people would have acted like   you  and if it is in your power to give me an  answer do it after thinking carefully.”                                                                                                    17.52
After telling like this to Rama,  the Vali , the son of king of devas  who was shining like a Sun, with a very dried up throat  suffering pain due to the arrow that hit him, kept quiet.                                           17.53

This is the end of the  seventeenth     chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

18. Rama replies Vali  and consoles him

(Rama tells Vali that as a representative of Bharata  who rules the world, he is authorized to punish Vali   who had a passionate relation with his brother’s wife. He tells him, that it is usual to hunt animals    hiding oneself. Vali understands the answer ,requests Rama to    protect Angadha his son. Rama assures him about it.)

After telling these humble   but harsh words  of Vali   which  had Dharmic implications     and Which were wise , he  who was struck by Rama  lost consciousness.                                                                     18.1
To that  lord of monkeys  who was  like a lusterless Sun , like cloud which  has released all its water  and like  fire which has put out   and who was having  characters of Dharma and Artha and who was the  matchless god of monkeys  and who spoke proper words    Rama who was criticized     replied.
“Without understanding Dharma, Artha , Kama and worldly  matters why are you criticizing me ? This is childish.”                                                                                                                                                             18.4
“Why are you talking like frivolous monkey roaming   in the forests? You could have consulted your elders  , who are intelligent ,  learned  and acceptable  to scholars.”                                                   18.5
“The  clan of Ikshuvakus  own the entire world including  along with its mountains and forests and have the right   to punish  animals , birds and men.”                                                                                          18.6
“The truthful , and upright Bharatha who is the follower of Dharma  who   has great knowledge of Dharma and Artha rules over this earth and is an expert in  rewarding and punishing   his subjects.”
“King Bharatha  in whom  both diplomacy  and  humility  as well as truth is established  is seen as a king with valour and judgment of time and place .”                                                                                         18.8
“As per his Dharmic  instructions  we and other kings  are going round the world  with a desire to establish Dharma.”                                                                                                                                          18.9
“When the tiger  among kings Bharatha  who loves Dharma  is ruling over the world , how can anyone move without observing Dharma.”                                                                                                             18.10
“As per the orders of Bharatha  we who are  firmly established in our own Dharma , punish  as per law those who do not follow Dharma.”                                                                                                             18.11
“You have violated Dharma and  slipped from your duty , and staying in passion bound activities in the royal  path.”                                                                                                                                                     18.12
“The elder brother , father   and the one who gives us education  are the three who are  to be  considered equal to a  father by those   who follow Dharma,”                                                                18.13
“One’s younger brother , son and a virtuous disciple   are the three   who are  to be treated as sons if Dharma is taken in to consideration .”                                                                                                    18.14
“Oh monkey , Dharma is  subtle and difficult to understand  and all the beings can identify the good and bad in their   heart.”                                                                                                                                     18.15
“You are fickle and  you consult    fickle minded petty monkeys  and it is like a born blind man consulting another  born blind person , Can you look at it from this angle?”                                                     18.16
“I will tell you about  it in very clear words  and it is not proper for you  to be angry at me   or blame me.”                                                                                                                                                              18.17
“I will tell you the real reason for my killing you and please see it.  You have forsaken the eternal Dharma   by  delighting with your brother’s wife.”                                                                                              18.18
“You have delighted with passion towards Ruma who is your daughter in law     when the great Sugreeva    is still alive.”                                                                                                                                                18.19
“Oh monkey , this punishment decided by me for your violating Dharma   by sinning with passion  with  your own younger brother’s wife , is just and proper.”                                                                     18.20
“Oh lord of the monkeys , for one who acted against Dharma    and not following the norms of the world , the only punishment which I could judge was killing you.”                                                              18.21
“I will not pardon  you since  I am a Kshatriya  born in a good family, and I cannot pardon you  ,  as the Sasthra says that  punishment for any one who lusts with   his own sister or his brother’s wife , is death.” 
“Bharatha is the king of the world  and we are the followers of his order  and you have violated Dharma and how can we pardon you?”                                                                                                                  18.23
“Bharatha is wise, respectable  and who observes Dharma when he is ruling  and he has determined to punish those   who go against Dharma in the   sensual matters.”                                                     18.24  
“Oh Lord of the monkeys , having decided to  follow the law of Bharatha , we have determined to punish all wicked people who go against tenets of Dharma.”                                                                        18.25
“My friendship with Sugreeva is just like my friendship   with Lakshmana  and it was engaged  for the sake of his wife and kingdom  and I had Taken an oath  regarding this in front of the monkeys and how is it possible for me  to  disregard my oath.  “                                                                                    18.26-18.27
“Taking in to consideration all these  great reasons which are according to Dharma , you may tell me  the suitable command of yours.”                                                                                                                              18.28
“This should be viewed  as a help rendered by me within limits of Dharma  and  it should be considered as a  right punishment given to you because of that.”                                                                                   18.29
“You also should   think it  over from the point of Dharma .Please hear two  song verses  said by Manu which is highly regarded   by those who love culture   and these have been accepted by those proficient in Dharma  taken action based on them.”                                                                          18.30-18.31
“Those people who are  punished for their sins by the king  , get purified and reach  heaven just like saints who did good deeds.”                                                                                                                              18.32
“A thief  who has stolen money is relieved  of his sin, if the money is taken back from him by the king after punishing him but the king  becomes sinful , if he does not punish the sinner.”                           18.33
“My noble  ancestor  Mandatha  inflicted a great punishment   to one who is supposed to have given up the world , when he did a similar   sin to that of yours.”                                                                       18.34
“Other kings  who were  not watchful have also committed similar sins  and their  taint was appeased by doing atonement,”                                                                                                                                              18.35
“Oh tiger among monkeys  , please do not be  sad about it  for this killing was done as per Sasthras and done according to Dharma , as we do not have  freedom to act as we like.”                                         18.36
“Oh great monkey I shall relate you   another reason   for doing it  and on hearing it      you should not get angry with me.”                                                                                                                                            18.37
“Oh great monkey I do not have any quarrel  or malice with you  and you know men using nets  and ropes catch many different type of  animals in the forest  by hiding themselves.”                              18.38
“Those men who seek flesh to eat  kill  running and frightened animals  which run away from them  and  also  stable and fearless animals.   They also hunt for alert animals   which run away fast , which are not facing them. It is not wrong to hit an animal in any condition.”                                                     18.39-18.40
“Even royal sages  who are expert in Dharma  go for hunting  in  the forest , and  because of that you fell for  my arrow, Oh monkey and for hunting an animal on the branch , facing or not facing is not relevant.”  
“Oh great monkey,  kings are  givers of Dharma , which is not easy to obtain  and  also auspicious  life  and there  is no doubt about it .”                                                                                                                       18.42
“Since kings are gods  in human form moving  on  the earth  , you are not supposed  to harm them, shout at them  , obey them and also  not speak unpleasant words to them.  “                                        18.43
“Not knowing Dharma you are  simply angry  with me  and berating my observation of Dharma  not realizing that  this Dharma  has  been passed to me through my father     and forefathers.”               18.44
When Rama told him like this Vali was greatly pained  and decided  as per Dharma that   there was no fault in Rama.                                                                                                                                                        18.45
That Lord of   the monkeys with hands held in salutation told Rama “Oh great man , whatever you spoke is a fact  and there is no doubt about it.                                                                                                          18.46
“ It is not proper    for an inferior  person  to reply to a distinguished person   and I have earlier talked to you    words that you do not like out of ignorance  and Oh Raghava  in spite of that  further do not find  fault with me.”                                                                                                                                         18.47-18.48
“You are one who understands truth , one who is interested in welfare   of citizens , one who can deduce about cause and effect , pleasant and stable minded.”                                                                               18.49
“Oh expert in Dharma , I am that one who went against Dharma  and  one who believes in  not practicing Dharma  and  do not know what is told in books of Dharma     and  so  please protect me.”               18.50
“I am not sad about myself  nor about Tara and nor   about my relatives  but I am worried about Angadha  who has virtuous qualities and wears   golden armlets .”                                                          18.51
“Since I had loved and fondled right from childhood  , without seeing me  he would become pitiable  and look like a lake with its waters dried up.”                                                                                                      18.52
“Angadha is my only son and is young ,  innocent  and is the son of Tara  and very strong. You have to please protect     him.”                                                                                                                                  18.53
“You may please show your concern for Angadha  as well  Sugreeva  and you are one who  protects and punishes  them  and you also know what they should do and what they should not do.”               18.54
“Oh king , behave with Angadha and Sugreeva like  you would behave   with Bharatha and Lakshmana ..”                                                                                                                                                                        
 “Tara , the sage like woman should not suffer for my faults at hands of Sugreeva and I wish  he does not behave insultingly with her.”                                                                                                                       18.56
“With your blessings any one would be capable of ruling a kingdom . Working under you and obeying your will , he can rule over the entire earth  , and even heaven.”                                             18.57-18.58
“Even though I was prevented by Tara , since I was desiring death from your hands , I came to fight duel with my brother  Sugreeva who is the son of Sun God” saying this the Lord of monkeys chose to remain silent in front of Rama.  “                                                                                                                             18.59
Then Rama consoled Vali who was   clear in his thoughts , who knew  the peaceful means  and who was speaking according to Dharma.                                                                                                                    18.60
“OH monkey  do not grieve  regarding this matter . Oh Good monkey you should not worry about yourself or us as  we have taken a decision according to Dharma in your regard.”                  18.61-18.62
“He who punishes  one  who  deserves to be  punished  and he  who deserves punishment and gets punished  both of them  should not be sad  to  because this is the result cause and effect theory.”  
“ Oh  great one , Because I have punished you, you have got rid of the sin  and  as per your nature   you have attained the state of Dharma.”                                                                                                              18.64
“Oh best of monkeys , give up sorrow , desire and fear that remains in your mind  , for it is not possible for you to go against the design of fate .”                                                                                                18.65
“Oh Lord of monkeys Angadha would have the same relation to Sugreeva that he had with you  and do not have any doubt about it.”                                                                                                                          18.66
Hearing these sweet words from that great soul  Rama  who travels in the path laid out by Dharma and  who is destroyer of his enemies  that Monkey gave a fitting suitable reply .                                         18.67
I being hit by an arrow and having lost my usual consciousness , due to my ignorance   blamed you , Oh Lord equal to Indra   and one who is greatly valorous  ,  be leased with me and pardon me.”           18.68

This is the end of the  eighteenth     chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

19. Tara Rushes  to the place Vali has fallen
(When Tara   sees the monkey warriors running away she tries to dissuade them. They advice her to go back to the city and crown Angadha as their king. Without bothering about this advice  , Tara rushes to the spot where Vali has fallen. Seeing her and Angadha crying Sugreeva becomes sad.)

Struck down   by the arrows that  great king of monkeys  was made to lie on the ground  and hearing apt words from Rama , he  chose not to reply  .                                                                                                      19.1
 Badly   pierced   by Rama’s arrows  , limbs smashed by boulders  and hit by trees , he lost his consciousness    as a prelude to death.                                                                                                              19.2
His wife  Tara heard  that the tiger  among monkeys  was killed by the arrow  released   by Rama  in the battle.                                                                                                                                                                      19.3
Hearing the terrible and unpleasant news of her husband’s death , Tara got greatly frightened and  rushed to the mountain cave along with her son.                                                                                          19.4
The greatly valorous attendants of Angadha seeing Rama the  one who wields a great bow  were frightened and ran away  .                                                                                                                                  19.5
Then Tara saw  the frightened monkeys running away  from her troop  like deer slipping away from their herd.                                                                                                                                                                        19.6
That virtuous lady who herself was sorrowing , reached them who were sorrowing  and running away as if Rama’s arrows have hit them and told them.                                                                                              19.7
“Oh monkeys you are the attendants  who walk ahead of that king lion  and why are you running away  leaving this place extremely frightened ?”                                                                                                   19.8
“If  for the sake of the kingdom this brother    was made to fall down by Rama’s arrows which strike at a long distance , why are you running away?”                                                                                                 19.9
Those monkeys who can take  any form that they want   hearing the words of the wife of  the  monkey lord , which was timely  and clear told her.                                                                                                19.10
“Oh lady with a living son, you please go back  and save the life of your son Angadha , for Rama in the  form of God of death    has killed  Vali.”                                                                                                      19.11
“After being   hit by trees and very big stones   which were thrown at him , Vali fell down by the thunderbolt   like arrow of Rama.”                                                                                                                19.12
“After seeing the tiger like monkey who is equal to Indra in luster   fall down  ,  we who are his army  were terrified   and  are getting scattered.”                                                                                                19.13
“Please protect the gateway of the city  and crown Angadha the son of Vali  as the king  and all the monkeys   would serve him as their king.”                                                                                                  19.14
“Oh lady with a pleasant face , otherwise your place would not  be good  and   so  do as we advise and immediately the monkeys  will mount the citadels of the city and  keep watch.”                              19.15
“You will  see many monkeys  who were sent away   by Vali along with wives and without wives wandering in the forest  and they are great cause of fear to you.”                                                       19.16
That lady with a pretty  smile  hearing  the words of monkeys with a lowly mind talked to them reflecting her own views  .                                                                                                                                               19.17
“After the death of my great husband  who is the lion among monkeys , what is the use of the kingdom to me  or the son or this life?”                                                                                                                      19.18
“I will reach the base of   the  feet of that great soul  , who has been killed by an arrow    sent by Rama.” 
Affected by great sorrow , she ran  crying , hitting  her head   and chest with her  own hands .   19.20
When she was drawing close to that spot , she saw , her husband , who was a great conqueror of Rakshasas   and one who never turned his back in the battle fallen on the earth.                          19.21
And there she saw Vali    who could throw mountains  just like Indra who threw his thunderbolts , who was like a stormy  wind   and  had the voice like the thunder of clouds.                                          19.22
Vali was equal in prowess to Indra , a thunder to those who thunder , one with a huge form,  a valiant one , one who could kill  other valiant ones , one who was like a lion killed by a tiger for its meat    and was lying  there like a cloud  that was powerless  after the rain.                                                        19.23
He was like a temple  having a flag and altar  which was revered by all the worlds  but  destroyed by an eagle  for the sake of a serpent .                                                                                                                19.24
That auspicious  lady then saw Rama  standing there leaning on the best of the bows  along with his brother and the brother of her husband  .                                                                                               19.25
After crossing the place where they are standing  , she went near her husband  who had fallen in the battle  and that very much pained lady    was bewildered    and fell down.                                      19.26
That lady then  stood up as if she was waking up from her sleep  and while crying said , “Oh husband”  and wailed loudly seeing her husband who was caught up in the rope of death.                            19.27
Sugreeva seeing Tara crying like a female Osprey  and also seeing Angadha who was following her with great sorrow , experienced sorrow and despair.                                                                                   19.28

This is the end of the  nineteenth      chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

20.The wail  of Tara

(Tara laments for her husband.  She  decided to give up her life by not taking any food.)

That  moon faced lady   and the pretty  Tara , seeing her husband killed by the release  of the   fatal arrow by Rama and lying on the ground , went near embraced him .                                                20.1
Seeing Vali who can be compared to an elephant   and who was like a great mountain  lying killed by  an arrow   on   the ground   and  fallen like a big tree , with mind filled with sorrow    and grief , Tara  wailed in   great grief.                                                                                                                                           20.2-20.3
“Oh greatly valorous  best of monkeys , oh great hero, in this dreadful war , why this neglect , why are  you not talking   to me who is in front of you .”                                                                                         20.4
“Oh tiger among monkeys ,  wake up , you may take rest in a  best bed for great kings like you do not lie down on the earth.”                                                                                                                                         20.5
“Oh Lord of earth, it appears    earth is very special to you  as  even after death instead of lying on my limbs , you are lying on her.”                                                                                                                         20.6
“Oh valorous one who acted according to Dharma  , it is very clear to me  that you have constructed another pretty Kishkinda city on the way to heaven.”                                                                              20.7
“The pleasure trips to the  sweet scented forests by  you and me both  at this time has  reached the end.”                                                                                                                                                                  20.8
‘When the leader of leaders like you have left for heaven after death , I am  without happiness, without desires and drowned  deep in the sea of sorrow.”                                                                                    20.9
“My heart seems   to be  greatly stable , since even after  seeing my dead husband  and even after being filled with sorrow, it does not seem to break in to thousand pieces.”                                               20.10
“Oh lord of the monkeys, you seized the wife of Sugreeva  and also banished him  and you have attained this state  because of that.”                                                                                                                        20.11
“Ok king of monkeys, due to love towards you  and wishing you spiritual welfare , being the seeker  of your welfare I  gave you some good and useful advice but you ignored it.”                              20.12
“Oh person with self respect , you will create restlessness  in the minds of Apsaras, who are endowed with youth and beauty.”                                                                                                                                      20.13
“The God of death  without any doubt puts an end to life and you who cannot be controlled  have now come under the  grips of control of Sugreeva.”                                                                                    20.14
“I who have never experienced sorrow have become like an orphan   and turned in to a wretched condition  of great sorrow    by attaining widowhood.”                                                                      20.15
“How will the delicate Angadha , who is pretty , valorous  and  given to life of pleasure  live under the wishes of his father’s brother , who is short tempered.”                                                                    20.16
“Oh son , please see your father  who is  handsome and also lover of Dharma as  to you it would not be possible to see him again.”                                                                                                                       20.17
“Oh my lord ,  you are on a long journey ,  console your son and after consoling touch your son on his forehead and enjoy his sweet smell and give him your message.”                                                  20.18
“Rama has done a very great job by killing you  and  paid back his debt to Sugreeva in terms of an oath.”  
“Oh Sugreeva , become happy , fulfill your desires and  get back  Ruma  and enjoy the kingdom  without any worries  as your brother   who is your enemy is not there.”                                                     20.20
“When I am wailing like this with love towards you why are you not replying?  Oh Lord of monkeys see me as well    as many of your other wives.”                                                                                         20.21
All the other monkey ladies hearing this great wail of Tara , embracing Angadha became miserable , sad and started crying.                                                                                                                                     20.22
“Oh hero adorned with armlets  , why this valorous journey without taking Angadha with you , who has qualities like yours  and how can   you go without your very dear son ?”                                               20.23
“Oh darling who dresses  prettily  , since you have begun the long journey leaving me and Angadha here , have we done something that you did not like?’                                                                              20.24
“If I have done  some thing that you did not like unknowingly , Oh long armed one , please pardon me , oh lord of monkey clan.  Oh valorous one , I am bending my head and touching   your feet.”              20.25
Then the piteous Tara  who had a faultless colour  cried uncontrollably near her husband   along with other monkey ladies   and  with a decision  to give up her life , she sat there  near Vali without  taking any food.                                                                                                                                                        20.26

This is the end of the  twentieth  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

21.Hanuman tries to console Tara

(Hanuman tells Tara that with a living son , who needs her attention it is not proper to give up her life.  He tells her that she shoyld make Angadha as the king. Tara   tells him that she would prefer death.)

Then the monkey leader Hanuman slowly    consoled Tara who was like star on the sky fallen to the ground.                                                                                                                                                                    21.1
“All beings due to   the bad and good deeds done by them  in  control of their senses  attain after death    auspicious or inauspicious results.”                                                                                                                    21.2
“When one should worry about you , you are worrying  about  one  about whom you should not get worried due to pity and compassion  as this body is as temporary as a bubble.”                                      21.3
“You are a mother with a son living in Angadha     who is a lad who needs to be looked after. And think  about your duties to him in the future.”                                                                                                            21.4
“You are  aware that coming   and  going  in  to this  world     does not happen  following any rule  and therefore   the learned people say that we have to  do only auspicious acts.”                                21.5
“He  is the one on whom thousands , millions and hundred millions  monkeys  have pinned their hope and that  one has  attained  this state.”                                                                                                     21.6
“He had  a lawful vision,  he used persuasion, charity and punishment   to administer the kingdom, and has got this position through Dharma  and it is not proper for you grieve at his death.                       21.7 
“The tiger among monkeys Angadha  who is your son  and the entire kingdom of monkeys and bears are  under your control.”                                                                                                                                         21,8
‘Oh pretty  one,  you may encourage these two persons(Sugreeva and Angadha)  who  both are drowned in sorrow  and let Angadha under your control   rule over this earth.  “                                               21.9
“Whatever   are the anticipated duties  of a son towards    his father  and  all that is expected to be done to the dying king  should be done now, as this has been dictated by time.”                                     21.10
“Now the monkey should be cremated and   Angadha should be crowned as the king  , and after seeing your son going towards   the throne you would get peace.”                                                               21.11
Hearing these words , Tara who was affected by sorrow  due to husband  , replied to Hanuman who was available  there.                                                                                                                                             21.12
“If on one side I have hundred sons who are exactly alike Angadha and the dead body    of this slayer on another side , I would embrace    the body.”                                                                                           21.13
“I am not the   proper person to decide  whether Angadha has to be the king  and the brother of his father Sugreeva   would take a decision on   that.”                                                                                21.14
“Oh Hanuman , do not entertain such thoughts in your mind about Angadha  for father is the real  well wishes of the son and not the mother.”                                                                                                   21.15
“A safer course for me is to join  the king of monkeys in this world or the  other world  and I would prefer  to the slain hero in my front  and I would lie with  him  in his final resting place.”           21.16

This is the end of the  twenty first  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

22.Death of Vali

(Vali wakes up briefly, gives his golden necklace to   Sugreeva,  requests him to take care of Angadha  and then Asks Angadha to behave like an adult and help Sugreeva. Then he breaths his last.)

Vali was slowly  sighing at that time  and was feeble and  was taking tortured breaths  and he saw in front of him Sugreeva as well as his son.                                                                                                      22.1
The Lord of monkeys Vali called Sugreeva who has obtained victory  and clearly told him in a loving manner.                                                                                                                                                              22.2
“Oh Sugreeva , please ignore the harm done  to you by me due to mistake  and due to  fate  pulling me    with force.”                                                                                                                                                          22.3
“Oh Lad, it appears that we are not fated  to have happiness simultaneously , though we have  mutual bondage of love as brothers.”                                                                                                                           22.4
“Now itself please receive this kingdom of the forest people as  as I am now going to the land of Vivaswan (God of death).”                                                                                                                                 22.5
“I am soon leaving this life ,  vast kingdom, wealth  and the greatly coveted    reputation.”                22.6
“Oh warrior, In this circumstance , please do what I tell you  to do , and Oh king though it is unpleasant as it needs to be done.”                                                                                                                                      22.7 
“Please see this child Angadha who is not childish , who merits a pleasant life, who was  raised in pleasurable way , who is lying on the ground with eyes filled     with  tears.”                                         22.8
“He is a son dearer to me than my soul  and  is separated from me and so please take care of him like your own son without depriving him of anything.”                                                                                       22.9 
“Oh Lord of the monkeys , from now on   you are  provider  and defender and also protector from fear  for all time to come  . “                                                                                                                                      22.10
“This  gentle son of Tara   who is equal to you in valour  will remain in the forefront in killing of the Rakshasas.”                                                                                                                                                           22.11
“This lad Angadha who is the son of Tara , who is mighty , strong and valorous in war would do   acts matching these   qualities.”                                                                                                                               22.12
“Tara who is the daughter of Sushena  would be of great help in  deciding about subtle matters  , in foreseeing dangers     as well as in crisis  management  .”                                                                          22.13
“Please do without hesitation any act that she considers as proper  as always her opinion never goes wrong.”                                                                                                                                                                 22.14
“Please carry  out the work Raghava without any hesitation   and if you do not  do it , you would be going against Dharma  and if it is neglected he would torture you.  “                                                      22.15
“Oh Sugreeva , wear this golden necklace of mine  which is  great   and home of Goddess Lakshmi , as it will ,loose its properties after I am dead . “                                                                                                  22.16
Sugreeva who heard these words of Vali spoken with brotherly affection  , gave up  pleasure  and became miserable   and looked like moon   affected by Rahu .                                                                22.17
By the words of Vali , he became  peaceful , left  his laziness  and took the golden necklace with his brother’s permission and put it on.”                                                                                                               22.18
After giving  the golden  necklace   , he saw his son  who was standing  and with  feeling that he is nearing his death , he spoke to him.                                                                                                               22.19
“Understanding the time and place and tolerating  likes and dislikes in times of pleasure and sorrow submit yourself to the will of Sugreeva.”                                                                                                       22.20
“Oh long armed Angadha , I brought you up with lot of fondling  and you should not move the same way with Sugreeva but respect him.”                                                                                                                      22.21 
“Oh destroyer of enemies do not go with friends who are enemies of Sugreeva . Be  self restrained and serve his interests  and be under the control of Sugreeva.”                                                                      22.22
“Do not get over attached   with any act  and do not  dislike   any act as both of them  are serious lapses  and  so become intermediate in attachment to actions.”                                                                          22.23
He who was suffering due to the arrow told this much and then  he rolled his eyes  and his mouth opened showing his teeth and he lost   his life.                                                                                           22.24
Then all those monkeys and lords of monkeys cried  at the death   of the very great lord of monkeys. 
Because the Lord of the monkeys had  gone to heaven, Kishkinda looked desolate , the gardens , mountains and forests looked empty  and all monkeys dull due to the death of the tiger among monkeys.                                                                                                                                                           22.26
Due to his speed of movement , forests  and gardens used to be joined together with  heavy flow of flowers.  Who can now do it?                                                                                                                      22.27
Vali had engaged in a great battle once   with a great Gandharwa called Golabha  who was greatly valorous and this battle  went on for fifteen years , without the battle stopping at night or day.
“And on the sixteenth  year Golabha was killed  and by killing that  evil minded  one using his  zigzag teeth , Vali gave protection  to all of us and how    was he killed?”                                                      22.30
When the greatly valorous monkey chief was killed  , all the monkeys  lost their peace of mind like  the cows , whose leader was killed in a great forest full of lions.                                                                22.31
Then that Tara   who was sunk in the ocean of sorrow ,  looking at the face of her dead husband  clung to Vali like a climber clings to  a huge tree in the  forest.”                                                                          22.32

This is the end of the  twenty second  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

23. Tara Laments the death of Vali

((The sorrowing Tara wails about her husband who is dead. Nila pulls out the arrow from the chest of Vali)

  Then Tara took her face near her husband’s face whiffed it  and she started talking to her world famous husband who was already dead.                                                                                                                         23.1
“ Oh hero, Without bothering about my words  , you are  lying  on hard  , uneven and rough ground  on earth  which is very painful .”                                                                                                                              23.2
“Oh king of monkeys ,   it seems to me that you love the earth more than me , for you are  embracing earth and not talking to me.”                                                                                                                              23.3
“ Oh lover of adventures , You have moved into the possession of Sugreeva  , due to the clutches of fate  and Sugreeva only has won. Is it fated to happen this way?”                                                                       23.4 
“The leaders of monkeys and bears  of your   army are standing near   by. They are crying loudly and Angadha too is sorrowing  and you must also be hearing my words. Why are you not getting up?  “  23.5
“In other battles you have killed  enemies and made them lie here and you are now lying there where  people have  reclined earlier.”                                                                                                                            23.6
“ Oh dear You were born in clan of truthful and   pure people  and you were lover of battles  and Oh lord , you have left me as an orphan      and gone away  .”                                                                                     23.7
“A wise man would not offer his daughter  to a  warrior  as a wife   and now seeing you dead I have become a widow.”                                                                                                                                                 23.8
“My self respect has been shattered   and my permanent aim is shattered  and I have drowned very deep in the ocean of sorrow.”                                                                                                                            23.9
“My hard heart must have been made of stone as it is not breaking  in to hundred pieces  after seeing the death of my husband.”                                                                                                                                23.10
“He is my friend and husband and is naturally dear to me  and that brave and valiant one has attained   death in a battle.”                                                                                                                                              23.11
“A lady without a husband , even if she  is mother of sons  and has plenty of wealth and grains  , still she is called a widow by wise men                                                                                                                        23.12
“Oh valorous one, you are lying  on  the blood which has flown out of your shining body , it looks like  you are lying on a crimson coloured bed   in your own bed room.”                                                        23.13
“Oh bull among  monkeys, your body is fully covered with dust and  blood  and I am not in a position to embrace you.”                                                                                                                                                   23.14
“Today Sugreeva is happy that he has  got what he  wants  in your very horrible  enmity with him  and  feeling that his fear was dispelled by one arrow of Rama.”                                                                     23.15
“Due to the arrow piercing your heart , I am refraining  from touching  you  and I am only seeing you , who has gone to heaven.”                                                                                                                               23.16
Then Nila pulled out with great difficult   the arrow that had gone in to his body  and it was like pulling out a shining serpent which has gone deep   in to the cave.                                                                   23.17
When that shining arrow was being pulled out  it liked  like the ray of the sun  who has gone  beyond the western mountain.                                                                                                                                           23.18
From that that flowed blood wetting all parts of his body  and it appeared like the water mixed with copper ore was flowing   off the mountains.                                                                                                 23.19
When Tara was wiping the body of her husband covered with dust , the tears flowing from her eyes drenched   the  valiant one hit by an arrow.                                                                                                 23.20
Seeing her fallen down husband covered all over with blood  ,  that lady spoke to her son , the tawny eyed Angadha.                                                                                                                                                   23.21
“Oh son , see this very pitiable state of your father who has reached death , which has  been caused by a sinful deed which led to the enmity.”                                                                                                           23.22 
“Oh  son salute  your father  who had great self respect and now is dead  and that King who looks like a rising sun has now gone to the  abode of Yama .”                                                                                      23.23
When he was addressed   this way, Angadha got up , with his strong  and rounded shoulders held the feet   of his father and said , “I   am Angadha,”                                                                                           23.24
Then Tara told, “When your son Angadha   is saluting you  why are you not blessing him like earlier and say “Oh son live long.”                                                                                                                                      23.25
“I along with my son would serve you , who has lost  his conscience   like a cow    and calf  would attend on a mighty bull killed by a lion.”                                                                                                                    23.26
“In the Yagna of war , you have taken your bath in the water called Rama’s arrow  and how it that you took the bath without me  in this end of Yagna bath.,”                                                                             23.27
“Why am I not able to see on your chest the golden necklace given to you by  the very pleased king of devas?”                                                                                                                                                               23.28
“The luster of kingship has not gone out of you  even after  death , just like the luster of the sun of early morning does not leave the mountain.”                                                                                                        23.29
“You did not obey my words nor did I had the strength to prevent you  and when you died in the war , me and my son also have been killed  and along with the auspicious luster has gone out of  me.” 23.30

This is the end of the  twenty third  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

24. Sugreeva wails for his brother , Rama consoles   Tara

(Sugreeva now realizes the bad act act he has done. He tells Rama that he would enter the pyre with Vali and other monkeys would search for Sita. Tara requests Rama to kill  her  and send her to heaven. Rama consoles Tara>)

Seeing Tara who by the   shedding of her tears   was drowned in a great sea of sorrow , the mighty  younger brother of Vali , regretted killing his matchless  brother.                                                              24.1
After seeing  with a tear filled face  , Tara  for a moment ,  Sugreeva the highly sensitive person became greatly depressed  and pained  and he along with his attendants   slowly  reached near Rama .           24.2
He went near the famous  Raghava  who was standing  holding a bow , holding an arrow  which was as powerful   as a poisonous serpent  and who has auspicious bodily features  and told.                           24.3
“Oh King  , as per  your promise you have done   and you have seen the result  but oh son of the king  , I am  not interested in pleasures  and I have  lost interest  in living.”                                                            24.4
“When the queen is  deeply crying  and the entire  army   is wailing  and  are burning due to sorrow  and  when  my  elder brother is no more  and when the survival of Angadha is doubtful , Oh Rama  , I would not enjoy this kingdom. “                                                                                                                        24.5
“Earlier  due to anger, intolerance , being subjected   to violence   earlier  the death of my brother was agreeable   to me  but now  oh son of Ikshuvaku clan, after    his death I am greatly pained .”             24.6
“Now I think  it would have been better for me and my attendants   to have continued living on  Rishyamooka   mountain , somehow living there , looking after  our own affairs   which would have been better   than killing my brother  and attaining heaven.”                                                                               24.7
“When  that great soul  and intelligent one  told , “I will not kill you in this place and so go away”, those words  were fitting to his nobility    and  my word , “Oh Rama , please kill him”,  are befitting me who is an irrational  monkey.”                                                                                                                                     24.8
“Oh Rama, Oh brave one  , how can one brother  take pleasure  in killing the brother with great character  and I am now thinking about    the sorrow caused by death of a king, though I too am  one who is given to desires?”                                                                                                                                 24.9
“Killing me was not the intention of my brother  as it violated his Dharma  but all I wanted was   to take his life violating my own Dharma.”                                                                                                              24.10
“He punished me for a small time with a branch of a tree  but he immediately consoled  me by saying  , “Do not do it again.”                                                                                                                                      24.11
“He always   protected Dharma  , feeling of being a gentleman  and the feeling of brotherhood  but  I only exhibited  anger, passion  and my monkey like qualities.”                                                           24.12
“I have earned the sin of killing my brother similar to Indra acquiring sin by killing  of son of Twashta  , which is unimaginable , avoidable , undesirable and  unsightly.”                                                       24.13
“The sin of Indra is borne by earth, water trees and women  and who will bear the sin committed by this tree animal .”                                                                                                                                                   24.14
“Having got done the Job by Raghava which is against Dharma and which will lead to the extermination of the clan,  I do not deserve to be honoured   by people  and made a Yuvaraja   and so how can be made a king?”                                                                                                                                                             24.15
“As a sinner I  should be condemned  for the mean act which is harmful to the world  and because of that  a great sorrow is rushing towards   me , like the rain water rushing to low lying areas .”       24.16
“ The sin of killing  of my brother is the hind part of an elephant along with tail,  and the agony that I caused to my brother  has become  its  eyes , head and tusk  and this berserk elephant   is striking me hard like the waters of a ferocious river strikes its bank.”                                                                     24.17
“Oh best of kings , Raghava , how bad is my sinful behaviour   which has come   out of    the good behaviour which rests   in my heart , like  the dirt surfacing out of gold when it is heated in the fire .”
“Oh Raghava  , due to me this clan of very strong monkeys  including me and Angadha   are suffering due to  sorrow  and all of us  feel as if we are all half dead.”                                                                             24.19
“ Oh valiant one  , It is not difficult for us to get an easy going  and easy to deal with son,  but where we can  we get a son like Angadha  and  where in the world can we get a brother like Bali  , who will be approachable.”                                                                                                                                              24.20
“Oh best of the valorous ones, if Angadha does not live, Tara who is living only to bring him up , without a son would be miserable   and I am sure  , she will not live further.”                                               24.21
“And so I would like to enter the greatly raging bright fire   along with my brother as well as Angadha  and since I want to honour the   treaty these great monkeys  would as per your command search  for Sita.”                                                                                                                                                               24.22
“Oh  son of a king  , even though I am dead your entire  mission would be achieved  and Oh Rama , I who have led to the destruction of my clan  should not live   and so please permit me to carry out my determination.”                                                                                                                                                24.23
The chief  of Raghu clan heard these anguished words of the younger brother  of Vali  and slayer of warriors   and   shed tears and for a moment  Rama was perturbed.                                                      24.24
At that moment   the one who has patience like earth  and the protector of earth,   saw  Tara  who  was weeping with sorrow  and drowned in sorrow  and keenly proceeded towards  her.”                      24.25 
That pretty eyed one  who was intelligent was  embracing her monkey lion husband  who was lying on the floor  and the important ministers    started to make that wife of a monkey king to stand up. 24.26
Tara  who was struggling to embrace   was taken away from the presence of her husband  and saw  Rama with a sun like luster and holding his bows and arrows.                                                                24.27
Seeing him   who was endowed with signs of royalty , pretty eyes, eyes like that of a deer  and whom she has never seen before , she understand that leader of men was the son of Kakustha clan.               24.28
She who was drowned in sorrow and greatly pained  and greatly shaken up  , went to the proximity of that  great man  who was equal to Indra and was unapproachable to his enemies.:                          24.29
That Tara  who   was having the look  of one greatly agitated by sorrow  and who had great self respect  went near Rama  who was pure  and who had achieved his aim in the battle and spoke.                24.30
“You are incomparable, difficult to approach  , self controlled , best among people who practice Dharma , one with non reducing fame , one who has high sense of discrimination  , one who has tolerance like earth   and one with red eyes.”                                                                                                                     24.31
“You have a model body  like a magnificent human being and  one who holds bow and arrows in his hand , very strong and one who have assumed divine looks .”                                                             24.32
“You have killed my husband with one arrow and please kill me with the same one arrow  and I would be then able to go with him, since he does not enjoy life without me.”                                              24.33
“When  that pure one with eyes like lotus petals reaches heaven  , he would look around and being not able to see  me , he would not make love to the tall  Apsaras  who wear red coloured amazing dresses.”
“The valorous Vali would not find happiness in heaven without me like you are not able to find it without  the pretty damsel of Videha though  you are in the very pleasant stretches   of the great Rishyamooka mountain.  “                                                                                                                            24.35
“Oh Lad , you  very well realize  the sorrow that a virile  man gets in to,  without his woman  and let not Vali   suffer with that  and you please kill me  .”                                                                                       24.36
“If you who are a great soul feel that killing of a lady is sin , this will not happen to you as  I am to be considered   as  his soul  and so the sin of killing a  woman will not get attached to you.”            24.37
“In implementing scriptures also  the Vedas mention in various places , that woman is  an inseparable part of  her husband  and indeed his soul  and great people  say that no deed is greater than restoring  wife to her husband  and so you are not committing a sin.”                                                                24.38
“Oh Valorous one , if you give back me to my husband  that would be according to Dharma  and killing me would not be a sin because you would only be  giving a present to my husband.”                  24.39
“I am in a painful state , orphan  and greatly distracted   and it is not proper    for you not to kill me  and I would not be able  to live without him who has a gait of a proud elephant , who was a bull among monkeys , who was wise , who is adorned with the blessed golden necklace , for a long time.” When Tara spoke  this way  the great Lord  consoled   Tara  and told her.                                          24.40-24.41
“Oh wife of a   valorous  one, leave out these bad thoughts.. The creator has already fixed all that  has to happen  including your sorrows and pleasures also . and after this the creator told all beings.”    24.42
“All the three worlds would be ruled by fate  and no body can go against it,.” You would have  a great appeasement as your son would be crowned as  Yuvaraja as this has been destined by the creator .  and also wives of warriors do not    wail.”                                                                                                          24.43
After Raghava , the scorcher of enemies   consoled her  powerfully   that wife of warrior stopped having a face producing sound  and that well decorated Tara relaxed.                                                             24.44

This is the end of the  twenty fourth  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.
25. The cremation of Vali
(Rama consoles Sugreeva and requests him to make arrangements for the cremation of Vali. Tara and his other wives accompany the body of Vali. The body is cremated by lighting the fire by Angadha. Water ablations are offered to him.)       
Though Rama and Lakshmana  being equally disturbed , Rama  spoke consoling  Sugreeva, Tara   and Angadha.                                                                                                                                                             25.1
“Being filled   with grief does not bring fame to the dead  and we have to now start  doing what needs to be done after this .”                                                                                                                                           25.2
“You have to adopt worldly   practices and stop shedding tears    as  after a lapse of time this little activity should not be carried forward.”                                                                                                    25.3
“Fate is the cause of everything in the world, fate  is  the instrument of all actions   and fate is the reason of  doing different duties in this   world.”                                                                                                 25.4
“No one motivates others to  do any action including God  and the world acts according to its nature   and time  is the ultimate cause.”                                                                                                                25.5
“Time does not change fate  , time will not go against   fate   and the nature of anything cannot  be changed by time.”                                                                                                                                         25.6
“Fate does not have relationship or  does not cause valour  or cause the relation with friends, clan members and relatives  because fate is not under our control.”                                                        25.7
“However a good person  with clarity can visualize the effects of fate  and the effect of Dharma, Artha and Kama    are accumulated over time.”                                                                                               25.8
“The king of monkeys  has attained his nature   of the subtle soul  as  a result of his actions  along with the  combination of Dharma, Artha and Kama.”                                                                                   25.9
“That great soul who did not protect  his life  and by virtue of cumulated effect of Dharma, Artha and Kama  has won the heaven and has been accepted there .”                                                            25.10
“The very great state attained by the lord of the monkeys  is an excellent one and so there is no need for further regret and  the proper time has  come to do what  needs  to be done.”                           25.11
After Rama finished his talk, Lakshmana     the great hero  seeing that Sugreeva   has lost his consciousness told.                                                                                                                                    25.12
“Oh Sugreeva , now please do the funeral rites  to the body  along with  Tara and Angadha   and cremate it. “                                                                                                                                                                25.13
“Now please collect large   quantity of dried wood  and also divine logs of sandalwood , for  the cremation of Vali.”                                                                                                                                   25.14
“Please console Angadha who is in a pitiable state  and do not behave childishly as the city is under your control.”                                                                                                                                                     25.15
“Let Angadha collect  various types of garlands and apparels , ghee , scented  oil , which is required to be collected.”                                                                                                                                                  25.16
“Oh Tara , go quickly and arrange for a palanquin of the dead which can move quickly  , fastened with ropes  and  which is suitable to this occasion.”                                                                                   25.17
“Let capable  and strong monkeys who can carry the palanquin  be got ready so that they can carry Vali to the pyre.”                                                                                                                                               25.18
Lakshmana who increased the joy of Sumithra and the slayer of his enemies  after saying this  waited near his brother.                                                                                                                                        25.19
Tara who was with a  disturbed mind after hearing Lakshmana  entered quickly in to the cave (city)  so that the Palanquin can be arranged.                                                                                                     25.20
Bringing the Palanquin which was got ready along with monkeys who carry it , Tara returned back .
A marvelous palanquin endowed with a splendid seat , moving swiftly like a chariot covered with colorful pictures of birds and trees on every side of it ; like the sky -chariot of saints fitted with mesh windows fixed in appropriate way designed by Visvakarma; with artificially made small caverns and grottos made out of wood; embellished beautifully with wooden mountains decorated with the choicest of  ornaments; beautified with garlands, furbished with red sandal paste   and decorated with red scented flowers and red lotus garlands resembling the rising Sun was brought.              25.22-25.26
Then Sugreeva along with Angadha , crying bitterly  , lifted the body of Vali and placed it on the palanquin.                                                                                                                                                       25.27
That Vali ’s body  which had lost its soul was placed on the Palanquin which was decorated   with many ornaments , cloths   and garlands.                                                                                                             25.28
The Lord and king of the monkeys Sugreeva   then ordered “Let the funeral rites for  the noble one be conducted in a fitting manner .”                                                                                                               25.29
“Let  large number  of many types of gems be scattered  by monkeys marching in the front  , which should be followed by the Palanquin.”                                                                                                    25.30
“Let the monkeys carry out the funeral rites  of our lord in an opulent way  with special kinds of wealth  Like done  for  the kings  who have ruled this world .”                                                                         25.31
When Vali was  being carried for performing  the funeral , Tara, Angadha , the relatives  of the dead one   and other monkeys  crying walked    behind   that.                                                                             25.32
Then all the monkey ladies who were under the control of Vali   Crying, Oh Valorous one, Oh valorous one ”,  again and again , followed them.                                                                                                25.33
The chief of monkey troops  followed  Tara    and other monkey ladies  crying in a pathetic voice  about their husband followed.                                                                                                                            25.34
By the sound of the cries  of the monkey ladies  inside the forest  , all the  mountains and forests appeared as if they were mourning.                                                                                                     25.35
Then those sorrowing monkeys prepared the funeral pyre on the sandbank  surrounded by water in a mountain river  which was in a solitary place .                                                                                    25.36
Then the carriers of the Palanquin brought it to that place   and brought it down on earth  from their shoulders in that solitary  place    and were waiting.                                                                         25.37
Then Tara seeing her husband on the palanquin , placed her head on his lap and that very sad one
 cried.                                                                                                                                                           25.38
“Oh Monkey, Oh king , Oh my dear husband , Oh greatly respected one , Oh  Very strong one , Oh my darling , please see me. Why are you not seeing this person who is suffering from sorrow?”
“Oh king with self respect , your face is appearing happy , even though you are dead  and it has the colour of the setting sun  , which was the colour , when you were alive also.”                               25.41
“Oh  monkey you were dragged   away by Rama   who came in the form of god of death , who turned all of us as widows by one arrow  in the forest.”                                                                                        25.42
“Oh great king, all these monkey  women , all of whom  are your wives  and who are dear to you  , have  come on foot  walking this long distance ,. Do you know about it?”                                                  25.43
“Oh king of monkeys , they are all your  moon faced wives who are your favorites.  And now why are you not looking    at Sugreeva?”                                                                                                                       25.44
“Oh king, all your ministers , Tara   and  others  and those people of your city   are sitting  surrounding you , Oh sinless one.”                                                                                                                                 25.45
“Oh Conqueror of enemies, send away all these monkeys  in a proper way and  then we both will play  with passion in this forest.”                                                                                                                      25.46
Then That Tara who was crying like this due to her being drowned in sorrow  due to the death of her husband  was made to get up by other Monkey ladies who themselves were sad.                    25.47
Then helped by Sugreeva , Angadha who was wailing  placed his father  on the pyre , with senses numbed by sorrow.                                                                                                                                   25.48
Then with very disturbed senses  as per rule he offered fire to his father  who had gone for a journey to a long distance , went round him in an anti clockwise  manner , with his sacred thread hanging on his right shoulder.”                                                                                                                                           25.49
All the monkeys after cremating Vali as per  religious law  went to the river  for  offering water ablations with  the pure water  of the river.                                                                                                           25.50
Then all of them keeping Angadha in front along with Sugreeva and Angadha  offered water  to Vali.
The mighty son of Kakustha family     was equally sad  and pitiable as Sugreeva , directed   the funeral rites .                                                                                                                                                               25.52
After setting fire to Vali  who was  a hero of great prowess  who was killed openly by a great arrow of Rama , Sugreeva glowing like a  blazing fire approached Rama who was along with Lakshmana.

This is the end of the  twenty fifth  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

26. Sugreeva is crowned as king of monkeys

(When Hanuman suggests that Sugreeva should be crowned, Rama says he cannot enter the city as per his father’s words. He instructs Sugreeva to crown Angadha as Yuvaraja. The coronation takes place inside the city. Rama and Lakshmana retire to the cave to wait for the rainy  season to get over.)
Then all those monkeys  surrounded Sugreeva  who was greatly sorrowing and who were   ready to serve him.                                                                                                                                                               26.1
And all those monkeys went and stood before  greatly strong  Rama , who does not cause    problem to others  with folded hands  in salutation like sages standing before Lords Brahma.                                26.2
Hanuman the son of  wind God who  was like a golden mountain  and who has  face  like  the rising sun ,
With saluted hands   told.                                                                                                                                   26.3
“Due to your  grace  , Sugreeva got the kingdom of his ancestors  which was difficult for monkeys  to obtain.”                                                                                                                                                                 26.4
“With your permission Sugreeva has to enter  the city , then take bath in scented waters  made  with herbs  as per   rules  and he will be helped  to do his duties by all his friends. “                          26.5-26.6
“He will then specially worship you with gems  and garlands  and then you should come in to the mountain cave  and you should establish good relation with  the king and please all monkeys.”
Then the slayer of enemies  Rama who is wise and expert in speech  ,  after hearing what was told by Hanuman  replied.                                                                                                                                           26.8
“Oh gentle Hanuman ,  for fourteen years I will not enter in to a city or  village  as per the order  of my father .”                                                                                                                                                             26.9
“The great  monkey Sugreeva  would enter the  highly prosperous   and pretty cave(Kishkinda)  and as per proper ritual should   be crowned  as king of kingdom .”                                                               26.10
After saying like this, Rama   told Sugreeva  who was  greatly  strong, disciplined ,and  knowledgeable  .”
“Oh valorous one , now you consecrate Angadha  as the Yuvaraja , who is your elder brother’s son , who is  noble and similar to you in valour  and this Angadha  is a noble  person  fit to be Yuvaraja.”  
“Oh gentle one , the four months known as rainy season has  commenced  and in this first month  of Sravana,    water has started pouring down.”                                                                                           26.14
“oh gentle one, this is not a suitable    time for doing any activity  and so you enter the city  and I along with Lakshmana    would stay  on the mountain. “                                                                                   26.15
“This mountain  cave  is pretty , very wide , has proper wind , abundant   water supply  and is full of day and night lotus flowers.”                                                                                                                                 26.16
“When the month of Karthika sets in ,  you may try to kill Ravana as this is not the time. Oh gentle  one , you may enter  your city, get yourself  consecrated and  make  your friends happy .”                      26.17
Then Sugreeva the lord of monkeys after taking permission from Rama   entered , the city of Kishkinda   ruled by king Vali.                                                                                                                                             26.18
When the Lord of the monkeys entered   the city , thousands of monkeys  entered along with him , saluted him and stood surrounding him.                                                                                                   26.19
Then all  the people of the city  after seeing the chief of the monkey clan  prostrated before him with their heads touching the ground and later   sat there.                                                                          26.20
Then Sugreeva the valorous s one addressed all his subjects  after making them get up and  the gentle one entered the private apartments of  his  brother who    was strong.                                           26.21
After having entered when the lord of the monkeys  Sugreeva returned back , his friends crowned him    similar to the crowning of the thousand eyed one.                                                                                26.22
Then sixteen young and happy girls brought white coloured umbrella decorated with gold, and two Chamaras with golden staff that confers glory. They brought jewels, all kinds of medicinal herbs, sprouts and flowers from juicy trees, white flowers and white clothes, unguents, scented flower garlands from the upland flowers, wonderful lotuses, sandal, scents  of different kinds, excellent gold coloured paddy, honey of Priyanga, clarified butter, curds, tiger skin and sandals made of boar skin. These splendid women also brought highly valued unguent musk  mixed with red arsenic and came there. 
In order to  crown him as per rules and at the proper time , they  made happy the great Brahmins by giving them  precious gems        and food.                                                                                                26.29
Then they spread Kusa grass and lit the sacred   fire by using  auspicious sticks  and the people who are experts in Manthras offered  oblations  in fire along with Manthras.                                                 26.30
Then Sugreeva was seated facing the east on a gold-footed throne covered with fine cushions on a mansion decorated with multi coloured garlands. As per ritual sacred waters from rivers and streams  were collected and stored in golden pots. According to the procedure ordained by the sages in shastras , the water was apportioned and at the appropriate time  and that pure and fragrant water was used for the consecration by Gaja, Gavaya, Sarabha, Mainda, Dvivida, Hanuman, Jambhavan and Nala for the consecration of Sugreeva the bull among  the monkeys. The pure and fragrant water was poured from auspicious bull-horns and golden pots for the consecration. The monkeys  crowned  Sugreeva just like the eight Vasus crowned  the thousand-eyed Indra                                                                   26.31-26.36
When Sugreeva was crowned  all the  thousands of the great  monkey lords shrieked with joy .  26.37
Obeying  the words of Rama , Sugreeva the monkey Lord  hugged Angadha and crowned him    as Yuvaraja.                                                                                                                                                         26.38
When Angadha was   crowned those  monkeys  who were interested in the welfare of  monkeys  appreciated Sugreeva by saying , “Great, great.”                                                                                   26.39
All those who were present when the crowning took place  again and again praised affectionately   Rama   and Lakshmana.                                                                                                                                            26.40
The  pretty mountain cave  of Kishkinda was decorated  with banners and flags  and was full of happy and contended subjects .                                                                                                                             26.41
Then they informed  the great Rama about the crowning of the chief of the monkey  army  and Sugreeva  getting back his wife Ruma , ruled the kingdom like Indra.                                                                  26.42

This is the end of the  twenty sixth  chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

27.Description of Rainy season and consoling of Rama

{Rama and Lakshmana live in a cave on top of Prasravana  mountain. After Rama describes the rainy season from there he becomes moody. Lakshmana    consoles him.)

After the crowning of Sugreeva  and when the monkey entered the cave , Rama along with his brother arrived in Prasravana  mountain.                                                                                                                      27.1
That forest was filled with tigers  and deer  and surrounded by lions which were roaring in a big way. It was covered with many creepers, climbers and   very many trees  and full of bears , monkeys apes and wild cats  which were like a huge cluster  of clouds. The mountain had large number   of ponds filled with water .                                                                                                                                                             27.2-27.3
Rama along with Lakshmana preferred to stay  in a huge cave on the top of the mountain  for living  in that place .                                                                                                                                                              27.4
 That sinless one  , the son of the Raghu family after making an agreement with Sugreeva  which was in consonance with time spoke the following relevant    words  to his  humble younger brother Lakshmana,      
 Who was enhancer of glory.                                                                                                                            27,5
“Oh destroyer  is enemies , Lakshmana , this mountain cave is pretty, broad and has suitable breeze and Oh son of Sumithra  , we would stay here during the rainy season.”                                                            27.6
“Oh son of  the king, this lovely mountain peak is tall and  has white, black and red pebbles with many minerals scattered all over. It is delightful with caves and streams. It has different clusters of trees and variegated vines. The chirps of different kinds of birds are heard here as well as the sounds of excellent peacocks. This place is delightful with bushes of Jasmine, Kunda and Sindhuvara, Sireeshaka, Kadamba, Arjuna and Sarja in bloom. “                                                                                                                      27.7-27.10
‘Oh son of the king, , this pretty lotus creeper is full of lotus flowers  and not far away from here is the cave.”                                                                                                                                                                      27.11
“Oh gentle one ,  the descending  steps in the north east of the cave   and also on the western side is  elevated and the cave  is  free from wind.”                                                                                                      27.12
“Oh son of Sumithra , at the entrance of the cave is an extensive  flat  auspicious  smooth  slab  which looks like a  pile of collyrium.”                                                                                                                           27.13
“Oh Lad see on the  northern side of the auspicious mountain peak , a rain cloud resembling a heap of  collyrium .”                                                                                                                                                            27.14
“On its southern  side of the mountain are white rocks giving an appearance of another  mountain  and it looks like the tip of the Kailasa mountain , decorated by different mineral ores.”                             27.15
“You can see near by  on the east side of the cave , an east flowing river carrying pure water  which looks like river Jahnavi flowing from Trikuta mountain .  This place looks delightful with the Sandal wood, Tilaka, Sala, Tamala, Atimukta, Padmaka, Sarala and Asoka trees.”                                                27.16-27.17
“You may see on the bank of this river different kinds of trees like Vaneerai (canereeds), Timida, Vakula, Ketaka, Hintalai, Tinisai, Kadamba, Dhava, Kruthamalakai, Vythasai grown here and there which appear like a woman decorated with  apparels  and ornaments.”                                                                27.18-27.19
“With hundreds of birds , it is filled with several type of pleasing sounds . Specially  the Chakravaka birds  which is walking endearingly  along with its mates    and they appear to be greatly in love . The sand banks are full of water cranes and swans . Along with all this the river appears to be an over decorated lady who laughs.”                                                                                                                                     27.20-27.21
“In some areas the river is crowded with blue  lotus flowers and in another place with red lotus  flowers  and in other places with white lotus   flowers as well as unopened  lotus buds.”                                 27.22
“It seems to be favourite  spot for hundreds of water birds, peacocks   and Krouncha birds  and the placed river attended by sages  is indeed pretty.”                                                                                      27.23
“You please   see that the sandalwood trees are growing in structured rows  and it looks like some one has  made them equal   and grown in every direction.”                                                                             27.24
“Oh destroyer of enemies, Oh son of Sumithra , we will definitely live in this enchanting spot  and I am sure we would both enjoy it .”                                                                                                                        27.25
“ Oh son of a king, The  pretty   forest adjoining Sugreeva ‘s pretty city    of  Kishkinda is not very far away from here.”                                                                                                                                               27.26
“Oh best among those who are victorious , I am able to hear the pleasing sound of music and musical instruments  and along with  the accompaniments of drums  , I am hearing their sounds also.”       27.27
“Having got back  his wife , his kingdom and his friends  and  having achieved  great auspiciousness  , Sugreeva definitely should be happy.”                                                                                                          27.28
After saying this Rama and Lakshmana  started living on the Prasravana mountains   which had many caves and bushes and vines.                                                                                                                            27.29
Though Rama was living on that well endowed pleasurable mountain , that   Rama did not experience even a little  pleasure.                                                                                                                                      27.30
When Rama saw  specially the moon rising prosperously  in the east , he started thinking about his who was more important than his soul.                                                                                                               27.31
Rama could not get sleep at night   on his bed  and he used to get up due to sorrow  and continuously shed tears with his mind blurred.                                                                                                                  27.32
Seeing that sorrowing son of Kakustha clan , who was always     grieving , his brother Lakshmana who  was an equally sad man  spoke trying to console him.                                                                             27.33
“Oh hero, stop worrying , you do not deserve to be sad , for all sort of worries further sink you and you also  know about it.”                                                                                                                                        27.34
“Oh   Raghava, you are a man of action ,  one who believes  in God , a man of faith , one who follows Dharma , one who is engaged in action  and you will not be able to kill  your enemy   especially Rakshasa   in a battle  without showing  enterprise  and  by only  heroism.”                                                27.35-27.36
“Uproot the sorrow from your mind and make courage as stable  and completely uproot   the  Rakshasa   along with his people.”                                                                                                                                    27.37
“Oh son of Kakustha clan , you have the capacity to turn upside down the earth  ,  sea , ocean and the forests  and what of  Ravana.”                                                                                                                      27.38
“This is the rainy season  , wait for the autumn  and thereafter you would destroy  Ravana  and his kingdom along with his people  .”                                                                                                                 27.39
“I am only     at a proper time  , awakening your courage  which is dormant  like kindling   a burning ember covered with ash by pouring    sacrificial offering  of ghee .”                                                    27.40
Hearing those auspicious consoling words of Lakshmana  which he liked  , Rama  told these loving , good hearted   words.                                                                                                                                              27.41
“ You have spoken  friendly , affectionate  words    which are   for my welfare    of a counselor  and it is proper for   a valorous person like you  to tell that.”                                                                               27.42
“I have immediately given up the sorrow   which can destroy good results of all tasks  and I will resort to valour  which is undaunted during my heroic advances.”                                                                      27.43
“As per your advice , I would wait for   the autumn when the rivers   as well as  Sugreeva   and rivers to become pleased.                                                                                                                                            27.44
“When a  valorous  one  is  helped , he later  returns  it back   and ungrateful being who does  not return the favour  destroys the heart of good people .”                                                                                            27.45
Lakshmana after thoughtfully considering what was told by Rama , with folded hands in salutation    and in a worshipful mode  spoke these words   which expresses   his views   to his brother .               27.46
“Oh king , Oh great king  ,  your desire  would be fulfilled soon . With patience for the autumn to start  and pardon   this rainy season.  And as soon as the water flow stops kill all your enemies.”        27.47
“Control your anger and wait for the autumn .Pardon us and stay    with us for four months  on this mountain served by lions , while carrying out efforts to kill our enemy.”                                          27.48
This is the end of the  twenty seventh chapter  Of  the book  of Kishkinda   of the holy Ramayana   composed by Valmiki  as the  first epic.

“ Dressed in  black cloud looking like the deer hide  ,  with rains appearing like its   sacred thread  and the wind blowing out of caves   resembling chanting of Vedas  , this mountain appears  like priests   conducting a Yagna.”                                                                                                                                      28.10

29.Autumn breaks  and Hanuman reminds Sugreeva of his duty

(Seeing Sugreeva running after passionate pursuits, Hanuman reminds him of his duty to help Rama to search Vaidehi. Sugreeva instructs Nila to assemble monkeys from different directions to do the job.)

Hanuman the son of wind god observed a clear Moon light sky free from clouds and lightning resounding with the lovely sounds of cranes. He observed that Sugreeva  has attained abundant wealth and happiness  and by that reason was not taking care of kingdom and  his mind was set on enjoyment and sensual pleasures; who having accomplished the desired object was engrossed in enjoyment with women in the company of his own wives and Tara whom he had coveted by transgressing; and strolling day and night without caring for the kingdom; entrusting the kingdom to the ministers without being watchful about their movements; and sporting with women like Indra sports with Apsaras in the Nandana garden. Hanuman a knower of responsibilities and righteous duties who is timely in action, skilful in expression and knower of good speech approached Sugreeva. He spoke in a convincing manner to Sugreeva the king of monkeys  about his trustworthiness in a well meaning sweet and pleasing tone. He spoke truthful expedient and conciliatory words with full of love and affection making Sugreeva happy                                                                                                                                                              .29.1-29.8 
“You got back your kingdom and  your fame and  the greatness of your family is increasing but the duties towards your friends   have not been fulfilled and you are   supposed to do it.”                                       29.9
“He who is an expert in understanding the  proper time , always conducts himself  properly with friends  and only then  the greatness and fame of his kingdom will increase.”                                                       29.10
“He who can maintain with care his treasury  , the punishment he awards, his friends as well as  importance of his own self   and his kingdom as equal , would manage a great kingdom.”                  29.11
“You being straightforward  in your actions, please follow the right path  without  any problems  and carry out proper actions to satisfy your friends.”                                                                                         29.12   
“He who gives up all his actions and  does not work  for the sake of a friend with urgency and enthusiasm , would  be  experiencing bad luck.”                                                                                          29.13
“He who  keeps on postponing time without attending to the  work of the friend , even if he does great deeds , he would not helping his friend .”                                                                                                    29.14
“Oh destroyer of enemies ,  so do not make too much delay  on the job of the friend . Searching of Vaidehi is the  mission of Raghava and so please do it.”                                                                           29.15
“ Oh king, That punctual one is not pointing  out about the delay on your part though he is in a hurry to do it   because he is depending on you.”                                                                                                     29.16
“Rama is one  who causes clans to grow , a  long lasting friend, one of matchless power  and unparalleled in his  own character.”                                                                                                            29.17
“Like he did your job earlier , you have to now carry out his  job  and oh king of monkeys, you should now order the monkey lords.”                                                                                                                     29.18
“As long as Rama  does not  remind us , there is no time delay of the job , but once he reminds us  take it for granted that there is delay.”                                                                                                                  29.19
“Oh king of the monkeys  , even if he has not rendered any help , you   are one who will do him help  and in this case he  has killed your brother and  given back your kingdom and so you have  return his help.” 
“Oh Strong and valorous one who is the lord of monkeys and bears , why are you delaying in issuing orders to help  the son of Dasaratha.”                                                                                                       29.21
“That son of Dasaratha , if he desires is capable of  controlling devas , asuras and   great serpents  but he is waiting for you to fulfill your promise.”                                                                                                 29.22
“Without bothering for loss of  his life  , he  fulfilled your great desire  and so we should search for Vaidehi whether she is in  earth or  in the sky.”                                                                                       29.23
“ Devas, asuras , Gandharwas , groups of Maruths  and even Yakshas cannot scare  him    and where is the question of Rakshasas?”                                                                                                                        29.24
“Earlier by his power , he did the job to please you  and so Lord of monkeys  and so it would be proper for you to all that which would please  him.”                                                                                             29.25
“Oh Lord of monkeys ,  with your order , we can go and search for her in sky , earth , underground  or even inside the water   in the earth or any other place .”                                                                        29.26
“Oh sinless  one, You now order us   as to , who should determine  the activities , where we should go , in what direction and what we should do? More than one crore  monkeys are at your service.”  29.27
Hearing those  just words of appeal given at the proper time, Sugreeva who had great sense of duty  started applying his excellent intellect.                                                                                                     29.28
He sent word through  his  favourite Nila   who was always diligent   and sent message  to collect   his army cadres from  all directions .                                                                                                               29.29
“Let the leaders  of all the groups of monkeys  assemble here separately  and Oh chief or army , you may act   accordingly.”                                                                                                                                           29.30
“Those of my monkey army chieftains  who have enterprising soldiers  , may quickly assemble here along with their armies  as per my order  and you may supervise all the activities that are  to be carried afterwards.”                                                                                                                                                   29.31
“Al those monkeys who fail to reach here  within three   to five nights  would be awarded  the death sentence  and no thought would be entertained about it.”                                                                  29.32
“Go along with Angadha and inform the monkeys who have turned old  and inform them of my decision and order .After making  these arrangements that  great monkey lord  entered  in to his residence .

After Sugreeva  entered the cave and when the sky got cleared of  heavy clouds  , Rama who was oppressed by  the sorrow of love , swooned when it was raining , saw the white sky and the clear orb of the moon  and  thus seeing the night of autumn  covered  fully with moon light , realized that Sugreeva was passionately inclined , and as the time was passing on    retrieval  of Sita   was difficult  and he also realized that   the time for his return back was approaching.                                                         30.1-30.3
That brainy one within a short time regained consciousness and then  started thinking about Vaidehi   who was always   in his mind.                                                                                                                        30.4
Sitting on the top of a mountain blessed   by mineral ores  , he saw the sky of the autumn and , he started thinking about his beloved in his mind.                                                                                         30.5
Seeing the clear sky without any lightning  and filled with the sound of Sarasa   cranes, he started crying in a pitiable  tone.                                                                                                                                            30.6
“How   does   that lady  whose  voice resembles the voice  of Sarasa birds  , who was enjoying the sight of Sarasa  birds in the hermitage , spend her  time now?”                                                                       30.7
“How  will  the young lady feel on seeing the   pure  gold like   fully opened  Asana flowers , when she is  not able  see me among them?”                                                                                                                    30.8
How will Sita who talks  like a swan and who is pretty all over, who used to awakened after hearing the voice of a swan , awaken now?”                                                                                                                    30.9
“How will that lotus like broad eyed one     who  used to like the sweet voice of Chakravaka birds who were her companions , sustain her life now?”                                                                                          30.10
“Without that damsel with deer like eyes , if I stroll along , lakes ,  rivers , wells  forests and gardens ,  how can I  get happiness?”                                                                                                                           30.11
“That young  pretty  and delicate lady who has been separated from  me must have been troubled by the autumnal   arrows of the love God from a distance .”                                                                     30.12
Like this the great man who was the son of a king cried , like the  Saranga bird cried   for water   from
Devendra.                                                                                                                                                       30.13
The gracious Lakshmana who had gone round   for pretty fruits on the hell slopes  , when he returned  saw his brother.                                                                                                                                           30.14
He  saw his   greatly sorrowing brother gripped by unbearable  sorrow lying  unconscious  all alone in that  solitary place  and that son of Sumithra told his brother .                                                           30.15
“Dear One why have  you come under the influence of passion? Why this sorrow which is an insult to your manliness? This sorrow  destroys your peaceful mental composure  and what purpose can be achieved by you, by withdrawing   from your goal . “                                                                           30.16
“Being undeterred in your spirit , you may engage  your mind in some activity , which makes the mind peaceful for that time  and that intelligent  way to control your mind  would help you   great success in your endeavor.”                                                                                                                                             30.17
“Oh lord of the human race , Janaki who is protected by you cannot become easily  cannot be controlled by  someone else as she is a flame of fire and  no one would be burnt by  coming near the tip of the fire  and  you who are blessed may  notice this .”                                                                                           30.18
Then Rama spoke to Lakshmana  who has all god signs and cannot be defeated , using words which are spontaneous , wise , useful, according to diplomacy , conciliatory , just and beneficial.”               30.19
“Without any doubt I should get engaged in my work , which  should  be followed  special attention  and though the job is difficult  , Oh lad , I should also think of its result.”                                                30.20
Then after thinking about Mythili  who has eyes like lotus petals  , with a dried up mouth Rama told Lakshmana.                                                                                                                                                   30.21
“After drenching the earth with water  and bringing back all plants , the thousand eyed Indra  is taking rest.”                                                                                                                                                                30.22
“Oh son of the king  , after giving out their water the clouds are relaxing   and  are making pleasant  sounds while travelling  over  mountains and trees. “                                                                            30.23
“The clouds  of the colour of  blue lotus flowers , having filled all  the ten directions , have become peaceful like an elephant without rut.”                                                                                                     30.24
“The great clouds impregnated with water  with the fragrance of Katuja  and Arjuna Blossoms are blowing , the winds  carrying rain water    have stopped .”                                                                  30.25
“Oh sinless Lakshmana , the heavy clouds, elephants  and peacocks  and sound of waterfalls  have stopped  and peace prevails.”                                                                                                                   30.26
“The mountain slopes washed by rain water    now appears clean and bright with variegated   colours  and it appears as if the mountains are shining    with varied colours.”                                             30.27
“The autumn has  shown its charm by dividing   itself into    seven leaf Banana, stars, sun  and the moon  and also on the great elephants    which are  playing.”                                                                        30.28
“The autumn has brought   its peculiarities  , differently on   different objects  and its glory  is best exhibited on  blooming lotus grooves  by the touch of the tips of the sun. “                                30.29
“The  wind carrying  Fragrance  of the  seven leaf Banana flowers  which is followed by swarms  of bees  making  humming sounds also follows   the intoxicated elephants  and exhibits   its great strength. “
“The swans that have come  near  the pretty , broad winged  Chakravaka birds which are lovers   of rivers  and which carry the pollen of lotus flowers  to the nearby sand dunes, are playing with them.”
“The richness of the autumn   is distributed  among the  elephants which are energetic and strong    and among  the proud herds of bulls  and the very pleasing waters  of the rivers.”                              30.32
“In the forests the peacock seeing the sky without clouds have shed their  pretty ornamental plumes  and have lost interest on the loving peahens  and without luster and festivity are in a contemplative mood.”                                                                                                                                                           30.33
“The  forest lands are illuminated  by the golden colour Priyaka trees  which have  bent with heavy load of flowers  which have very likable fragrance  are extremely pleasing to look.”                             30.34
“The  great elephants which like  the lotus creepers along with their darlings , the wandering in the forest  are excited on seeing the flowers  and becoming intoxicated   have come under influence of passion  are walking slowly.”                                                                                                                    30.35
“Without clouds the sky  looks like  a polished weapon  the rivers have  less flow of water , the winds which blow over the white lotus flowers  are cool  and bereft of darkness all directions look bright.” 
“The mud has dried due to the heat of the Sun , great dust is raised upon earth after long time ,  and  it is  right time to fight for the kings who have enmity.”                                                                        30.37
“The proud cows  , with glorious appearance due to autumn, look happy with the dust that has settled on their feet  and are surrounded y bulls    which are bellowing and ready to fight.”                 30.38

“The best of elephants in rut  with their loud voices are frightening the ducks and Chakravaka  birds are   found stirring and drinking the water   of lakes   , which are ornamented by blossomed lotus flowers. 
“The happy swans  reach to those places    where  mud is  cleared , where sand particles are there  and locations containing pure water , in locations with cow herds  and in places where Sarasa  birds are singing.”                                                                                                                                                      30.42
“Now suddenly the sound produced  by  waters of rivers, clouds and waterfalls have  stopped   and the sound of excited peacocks is reduced by   the wind  and the frogs are missing their festivity.”   30.43
“With  various colours but  with body emaciated  and greatly troubled by hunger, the highly poisonous snakes are   seen to be coming out of   the anthills , when  the new clouds   have been formed.” 30.44
“Greatly  happy because of the touch of the moon beams  , the   twilight in great love is releasing   the stars   in the sky .”                                                                                                                                           30.45
