He kills  Vali and rests  in a mountain top during  the 4 month rainy season,  Sugreeva sends his army of monkeys   to search Sita, The  monkys going for search to the southern side are lead   by Angadha,  After  lot of search  , they meet a hawk called   Sampathi   who is   the elder brother of Jatayu.He is able to see  Lanka and tells them that they have to jump 100 yojana distance   to reach Lanka.  Jambhavan tells   Hanuman   that he only can do it. Hanuman climbs on the Mahendra mountain to  jump to Lanka.)

                                                                                                             

Sarika paithale , charu sheele  , varika,

Cholluven   engil anangari sankaran,

Kalyana seelan  Dsaratha soonu  ,
Kausalya thanayan  avarajan thannodum,
Pampa    sarasthadam  loka manoharam,
SAmprapya   vismayam poondu aruleedinaan,

Oh child of a parrot , good natured one  , please come ,
Oh dear one , please   tell the story  from then on,
I will tell  but I will  tell the   way ,
It was  told by Lord Shiva to his wife.
The good natured one  , the  son of Dasaratha ,
The son of Kausalya,  along with his younger brother,
Reached  the banks  of the lake  Pampa ,
Which was prettiest  in the world  ,
And become greatly surprised  and said,
Just broad enough  so that sound can be carried to the end,
With clear water which would take  the pains away,
Full of animals, with fully open lotus flowers ,
Water lily  and full of blue lotus flowers,
Filled with swan, water fowl, several hens and nightingales ,
Served by snakes   lion, tiger  , wild pigs ,
Surrounded   by flowering climbers  and trees ,
Which yield fruits  which gives rise to satisfaction,
And seeing all this he became happy , drank water ,
 Became little recouped and started  walking slowly.

4.1. Hanuman Samagamam

The meeting with hanuman.

Kale  Vasanthe  suseethale  bhoothale,
Bhooloka  pala  balanmaar iruvarum,
Rushyamookhadhi parswa sthale  santhatham,
Niswasamul kkondu   vipralapathodum,
Sita viraham   poranju  karakayum,
Choothayadarthi  muzhuthu parakayum,
AAdhi kalarnnu  nadannadukkum   vidhow,
Bheethanai  vannu dinakara  puthranum.

In the spring season  , in the  good  cold earth,
When the two sons of    the king  , after  resting,
Near  the Rishya  mooka mountain,
Breathed  well  and with tears ,
And crying due to parting with Sita,
And prattling due to  non fulfillment of passion,
Were  walking    along with great  mental pain,
Sugreeva , the son of Sun God became  scared.

Sathwaram  manthrikalodu  kuthichu  ,
Panju uthamangamaaya  sailagram  yeridinaan,
Maruthiyodu bhayannu  cholledinaan,
“Aar  yi varunnathu iruvar  sannadharai?
Nere darichu variga   nee vegena ,
Dheeranmarethrayumennu thonnum  kandaal,
Agrajan  cholgayalennu  balal ingu,
Nigrahippanai  varunnavarallalle.

He jumped immediately   and with the ministers,
And rushed   and climbed up to the tip of the mountain,
And with fear   and  told to Hanuman,
“Who are  these two people who are  coming prepared?
You go   and find out and come back quickly,
From looks  they appear  to be courageous people,
Are they   being    sent by my elder brother,
To  eradicate  me  , here?

Vikramamullavar  yethrayum thejasaa ,
Dikkukolaokke   vilangunnu kaanka  nee,
Thapasa  vesham   darichirikkunnathu,
Chapa bana  aasi sasthrangalum undallo.

They appear  to be valorous and are  sparkling,
For you see  all  the directions are alight  because of them,
Though they have dressed   in the form of sages,
They are  armed   with bow, arrow, sword  and other weapons.

Neeyoru vipra vesham  poondavarodu,
Vayu sutha  , chennu chodichariyanam,
Vakthra nethraa lapa bhavangal   kondavar,
Chitham   yenthannathu yennarinjaal  viravil nee ,
Hasthangal  konadariyicheedu nammude ,
SAthrukkalengil , ahthallengil   ninnude,
Vakthra  prasada  manda smera  samgnaya,
Mithramennullathum yennodu  chollanam.

 You please dress   yourself as a Brahmin,
Oh son of wind   and go and enquire and know,
And  try to understand    their thoughts,
By   their face  , eyes and talk  and expression,
And inform  us by  showing your hand ,
Whether  they are our enemies ,  and by ,
Happy face  and smile  tell us ,
Whether   they   are  friendly   to us.

Karma sakshi suthan  vakkugal kettavan,
Brahmachari vesham aalambya  sadaram,
Anjasaa  chennu  namaskaricheedinaan ,
Anjana puthranum   bharthu padambujam.

As soon as he heard the  words of Son of Sun god,
He dressed himself as  a bachelor  Brahmin,
And  that  son of Anjana with  pleasing manners 
Went and saluted the lotus like feet of those masters.

Kanja vilochananmaaraya   manava-
Kunjaranmaare  thozhuthu  vineethamai,
“Angajan thanne jayichoru   kanthipoondu,
Ingane  kanaya   ningal iruvarum,
AArennu arikayil  aagrahamundathu,
Nere parayanam   yennodu  sadaram.

Saluting  those   blue  eyed  human,
Elephants  and with  great humility ,
“ I  desire  to know   about  you both,
Who have the  luster  greater  than god of love ,
And are  seen in this fashion here,
And  so please  tell it    directly to me.”

Dikkugal athma  bhasaiva  shobikkum,
Arka nisa karanmaar yennu thonnunnu,
Trilokya  karthru bhoothanmaar  bhavanmaarennu,
AAlokya chethasi   bathi sadaiva may,

Noonam pradana purushanmaar  maayayaa,
Manusha karena  sancharikkunnithu  ,
Lelayaa  bhoobhara  nasanartham  pari-
Palanthinnu  bhkthanaam mahee thale.

Because of your souls  all directions are  shining,
And I  think  you are   the  sun and  the moon,
Looking at your face  I think  that you are ,
The   elements   which make the three worlds work,
Are you  the aswini devas  who  are ,
Most valorous  of the world,
You both are   the supreme form of gods,
Who are   the  cause    of this universe,
And definitely  you are  chief purushas
Who  for the sake of humanity are travelling with illusion,
Who  as if it is a sport   would  reduce ,
The burden of this earth and to ,
Look after   your devotees.

Vannu  rajanveshana  pirannoru,
Punya  purushanmaar  poorna gunavaanmaar ,
Karthum jagat sthithi  samhara  sargangal,

Mukthi  nalkum  nara narayananmaare,
Ultharil innu thonnunnu nirantharam,
Itham paranju  thozhuthu  ninnedunna ,
Bhakthane kandu paranju Raghuthaman.

The blessed  men   are     born in a royal  family,
And they  are people of fully good character ,
Who are  engaged  in ruling   and punishing in the world,
And  engaged  in sports they are  always independent,
And in my mind  I feel that   they are ,
The Nara and Narayana  who grant salvation,
And seeing that devotee   who told like this,
And was standing  saluting him , Rama told.

“Pasya   sakhe , vatu roopinam  , Lakshmana,
Nissesha   sabdha   sasthramanena srutham,
Illoru   apasabdham  engume  vakkingal,
Nalla Vaiakaranan  vatu nirnayam,
Manava  veeranum appol arul chethu ,
Vanara   sreshtane  nokki laghu tharam.

Look friend, Oh one in the Brahmachari’s form and  oh Lakshmana,
He   has studied   the science  of grammar thoroughly ,
In the entire talk  there is no bad word anywhere ,
This Brahmachari is definitely a grammarian,”
And that  human hero  then told,
Addressing  that great monkey  in a proper manner.

“Raman yennu yennude  namam,  Dasratha,
Bhoomi  palendra   thanayan, ivan mama,
Sodaranakiya Lakshmanan , kelkka nee ,

Chollinaan  koopi thozhuthu kuthuhalaal.

“My name is Rama , and I am the son,
Of  the great king Dasaratha, he is,
Lakshmana   who is my brother, please hear,
The truth with attention and a pleased  mind, Oh intelligent one,
There is a Sita   who is also called Janaki ,
Who is  my respectful  wife , with us,
We were  sent by our father  to the forest  ,
To do penance   after becoming saintly persons,
When we were  living in Dandakaranya   forest,
One very   bad and angry Rakshasa   came  ,
And kidnapped   the  lady Janaki.
We are searching for in this forest ,
And till now we were not able to find her anywhere,
But we found you , who are  you my friend,
Please tell” Hanuman who heard   this,
Happily saluted them   and told.

“Sugrevanakiya vanarendran parva-,
Thagre  vasikunnithathra Raghupathe ,
Manthrikalai  jnangal  nalu perundallo,
SAnthatham koode piriyathev vazhunnu,

Rushya mookachalam  sankethamai vannu ,
Viswasamodirikkunnithu arkathmajan,
Jnana van thannude  bruthyanayulloru ,
Vanaran vayu thanayan Maha mathe .”


Oh lord  of Raghu clan, Sugreeva the monkey,
King is living  on the top of this mountain,
And with him we  four ministers are also there,
And we always live  without forsaking each other,
His elder brother Bali , who is the  monkey king,
Who is terrible one drove   his younger  brother out,
And he   also  kept as   wife, the wife  of his brother,
Rushya mooka mountain became  his  residence ,
Where  the son of Sun God could live  with faith,
I am    the servant  of Sugreeva ,
And the son   of the   wind god.

Namadheyam  Hanuman, anjanathmajan,
AAmaya theerthu  rakshichu kollename ,
Sugreevanodu  sakhyam bhavanundengil,
NIgrahikkam   iruvarkkum arikale,
Vela cheyyam athinavolam  aasu jnan,
Aalambanam maathenikkilla   daeivame ,
Itham  thirumanseengil , yezhennelluka,
Ul thapam yellam akalum dhaya nidhe ,

My name is Hanuman , son of Anjana,
Please  end my sorrow and protect me,
If you have a treaty  with Sugreeva ,
Both of you can kill your enemies,
For that purpose  I would do maximum possible work,
And  oh God ,   I will not do any delay ,
If you agree  to this, please get up,
And oh treasure of mercy, all the,
Sorrow  in your mind  will go away.

Yennunarthichu  nijakruthi kai kondu,
Ninnu  thirumumbil ammaru Maruthi,
“POka , mama skandam yeruduvin ningal,
Aakula bhavam  akale  kalanjaalum,
Appol SAbari than  vakkukal orthu  kandu,
Ulpalanethran  anuvadavum   cheythu.

After telling this he assumed his real form,
And before them stood that Hanuman,
“let us go , you please  climb on my shoulders,
Throw away   the  look of worry,
And then that  lotus eyed one ,
Thought of the  words of Sabari  and gave permission.

4.2 Sugreeva sakhyam

Treaty with Sugreeva

Sri Rama  Lakshmananmaare  kazhuthil ,
Ammarangeduthu  nadannithu Maruthi,
Sugrreva sannidhou  kondu chennedinaan,
“Vygram kalaga   nee, Bhaskara  Nandana,
Bhagyam aho bhagyam  ortholamethrayum,
Bhaskara  vamsa   samudbhavanmaraaya,
Ramanum  Lakshmananakum  anujanum,
Kama dhanartham ivide kezhunnelli.

Taking   Sri Rama and Lakshmana on his neck,
That  Hanuman walked very easily further,
And took   them before  Sugreeva,
“Throw away that  restlessness, Oh son of Sun god,
Luck, great luck more than what we wished has come,
These are  Rama and his younger brother Lakshmana,
Who belong   to the clan of   Sun God and ,
Have come here  to fulfill  desire of  you.”

Sugreevanodu yeevannam  paranju,
ADweesaragre, maha tharu chaya thale  thadhaa,
Viswa nayakanmaaraam  kumaranmaar ,
Visrantha chehthasaa ninnaruleedinaar ,
Vathathmajan paramanandam ulkkondu,
Neethiyodu arkathmajanodu   chollinaan.

He told   like  this to Sugreeva ,
On the top  of the mountain  ,
And below   the shade  of a very big tree ,
And those lads   who are   lords of the earth ,
Stood   relieved    and  not tired,
And that  son of wind god becoming extremely happy,
Told the son of Sun God with great  justice .

“Bheethi kalaga nee  mithra gothre vannu,
Jathanmaarayoru  yogeswaranmaaryi,
Sri Ramalakshmanmar, yezhunneliyathu,
AAreyum  pedikka venda  bhavan ini,
Vegena chennu vandhichu sakhyam cheythu ,
Bhagwatha  priyanai  vasicheeduga.”

“Throw away your fear  , this  Rama,
And Lakshmana   are the kings of yoga ,
Born in the clan of Sun god  , since,
They have come , you need not be afraid of any one,
Go speedily salute them  and sign a treaty,
And  live  as one very dear   to the God.”

Preethanayoru  sugreevanum anneram,
Adarapoorvam uthaya sasambramam,
Vishtapa  nadhan irunnu aruleeduvaan,
Vishtarartham  nalla pallava  jalangal,
Pottichu avaniyil ittu aruleedinaan,
THushti poondu  yellavarum iruneedinaar ,
Nashtamai  vannithusanthapa  sanghavum.

Sugreeva   who was  greatly pleased,
Got up respectfully  and quickly,
Broke soft tender leaves  and spread,
Them along   with tender   grass  so that.
The  lord of earth   can take  his seat,
And all people happily sat on them,
And their   crowd of sorrows  vanished.

Mithrathmajanodu  Lakshmanan  Sri Rama,
Vruthantham yellam ariyichathu neram,
Dheeranaam aadithya nandanan  modhena,
Sri Ramachandranodu aasu  cholledinaan,
“Nari maniyaya   Janaki deviye,
AAranju arinju  tharunnundu nirnayam,
SAthru vinasithinnu  adiyen oru,
Mithramaio vela cheyyam  thavagnavasaal,
Yethumithu niroopichu khedikkaruthu,
Aadhikale okke agathuvaan nirnayam,
Ravanan thanne  sakulam vadham cheythu ,
Deviyeyum   kondu porunnathundu jnan.”

Lakshmana then told  the son of Sun God,
All the   stories    of  Rama at that time,
And that brave  son of Sun god told happily,
“I will definitely   seek  and find out ,
That gem of a lady   Goddess Janaki,
And get  her   back to you,
Under your orders  I will work as your friend,
For exterminating  the enemy completely,
And so do not think about  it and be sad,
I will definitely  remove all your worries,
After  killing Ravana   along with his clan,
I would definitely  bring back the lady.”

Jnan oru  avastha  kanden  oru nalathu ,

Rama ramethi murayidunnol , thava,
BHamini thanne yennu avalaennathe   varu,

Oh valorous man , one day  I saw an incident,
Please listen carefully,   When once Me and my  
Four ministers  were living on the  top of the mountain,
One  Rakshasa  lord was taking   a lotus eyed lady,
Through the way of the sky and at that  time,
That pretty one,  broken down ,since there was,
No one to save her , was chanting “Rama , Rama”
And I  am sure   that   she is your wife only.

“Uthamayaam aval  jnangale  parvathendrao,
Uthamange   kanda neram paravasaal,
Uthareeyathil   pothinju  aabharanangal,
AAdheeswaropari   nikshepanam cheythaal .

Janaki devi   thannabharangalo,

Yennu paranjatheduthu   kondu vannu,
Mannavan than   thirumumbil vecheedinaan.

“That  virtuous lady seeing us  at the  top of the mountain,
Being  subdued , tied all her ornaments  in her upper cloth,
Put all of them on the   top  of the mountain,
And I saw  that   and took them and kept safely ,
And if you want to see them, you can see   them now,
Oh valorous man , if they are  ornaments  ,
Of Lady  Janaki, you may be able to identify them.,”
Saying  this he  brought   them from some place  ,
And kept them all in front of the king.

Arnojanethran eduthu nokkum neram,
Kannu neera  thanne  kusalam vicharichu,
“Yenne  kanakke pirinjitho ningalum,

Sokena  moham kalarnnu  kidakkunna,
Raghavanodu paranjithu Lakshmanan.

When the lotus eyed took them and saw,
His tears   were the ones which enquired   the welfare ,
“ Did you also part   like me   from her,
Who  is  the slender limbed  Vaidehi, alas,
Hey Sita, Hey daughter of Janaka , Hey my wife,
Hey darling  , Hey lady with eyes like lotus petals,
Crying like this with great sorrow he  ,
Took the packet of ornaments  and pressed it against his chest ,
And like   the very  ordinary  men ,
That  Lord of all world     started   crying,
Lakshmana   told that  Rama,
Who had fainted    with great sorrow.

“Dukhiyaikethume  Ravanan thanneyum,
Markata sreshta   sahayena vaikathe,
Nigrahichu  ambuja nethrayam   Sithaye ,
Kai kondu kolam  prseeda  , Prabho , hare ,
Sugreevanum  paranjaan athu kettudan,
“Vygriyaikethume Ravanan thanneyum,
Nigrahichasu  nalgeeduvan deviye ,
Kai  kolga dasiryam  dharithree pathe,”

“Do not be sad , along with  the help  of,
The chief of monkeys without delay  ,
We will kill Ravana , and  take back ,
The lotus eyed Sita , Please  My Lord, Hare,”
Sugreeva also told hearing that ,
“Do not be restless ,  I would give back Sita,
After   killing    Ravana  and so take ,
Courage   ,  Oh King of the land, Oh Lord.”

Lakshmana Sugreeva  vakkugal ingane ,
THalkshanam  kettu Dasaratha puthranum,
Dukhavum ottu churukki  maruvinaan,
Markata sreshtanaam   Maruthiyanneram,

Uthungamaya  SAilagre   maruvinaar ,

Moolamellam   unarthichu aruleedinaan.

Hearing the words  of Lakshmana and Sugreeva,
That  son of Dasaratha , reduced his sorrow a lot ,
And at that  time Hanuman the monkey chief,
 Made   fire there     and   seeing an auspicious,
Lagna , the treaty   was   made  between,
Sugreeva and Rama   with fire as the witness,
After signing the treaty and  having got hope,
That  both their   aims would be achieved ,
They left their intense sorrow ,
And stayed    at   the top of that tall mountain.
Sugreeva at that  time  told the reason,
For the quarrel to develop between him and Bali.

4.3. Bali Sugreeva  Kalaha Kadha

The story of  the quarrel between Bali  and Sugreeva

Pandu  Mayavi yennoru   asureswaran,
Undayithu , mayan thannude  puthranai,
Yudhathinnu aarumillanju  madichavan,
Udhathanai   nadaneedum dasanthare ,
KIshkindaayaam   puri pukku   vilichithu  ,
Markatadheeswaranakiya   Baliye,
Yudhanthinnai  vilikkunnathu kettu athi,
Krudhanaam Bali purappettu chennudan,
Mushtigal kondu   thadichathu  kondu ,
Athi dushtanaam daithyanaam  pedichu mandinaan,
Vanara sreshtanum  odi yethideeninaan,
Jnanum athu    kandu chennithu  pinnale  ,
Danavan chennu   guhayilul pukithu,
Vanara sreshatnum yennodu   chollinaan.

In olden times there  was a Rakshasa  called Mayavi,
 He   was the son of the asura architect Maya,
When he was getting bored   due to the fact ,
That there was no one to fight with him,
And when he   was wandering with exuberance ,
He entered   the city  of Kishkinda and he called ,
Bali who  was the king of monkeys to a fight,
And hearing that  he was being called to fight,
 The  very angry Bali started immediately,
And   hit  that asura using his two fists ,
And that   bad Rakshasa got scared and ran,
And the chief of monkeys ran behind him,
And seeing that   I also went behind him
And that Rakshasa , went   and  hid himself in a cave,
And the chief of monkey  told as follows.

“jnan ithil  pukkivan  thanne yodukkuvaan,
Noonan  viladwari nikku nee  nirbhayam,
Ksheeram  varikilasuran marichidum,
Chora varukil   adachu poi vazzhga nee .””
Itham  paranjathil pukkithu baliyum,
Thatha vila dwani  ninnen adiyenum.

“I am going inside  to subdue one who has gone inside ,
You please  stand without fear  in the opening of the cave ,
If   milk comes out of it assume that the Rakshasa  died,
But if blood comes out of it , close  it, go and live”
Telling like this Bali entered  the cave ,
And I stood waiting near   the mouth of the cave.

POyithu kalam oru masam yennittum,
Aagathamayathumilla  kapeeswaran,
Vannithu chora  vila mukham thannil  ninnu,
Yennullil ninnu vannu parithapavum,
Agrajan thanne  Mayavi Mahasuran,
Nigrahichan yennu urachu jnanum thadha,
Dukhamulkondu Kishkinda pukeddinen,
Markata veeranmaarum   dukhichathu kalam,
Vanaradheeswaranai  abhishekavum,
Vanarendranmar   yenikku  cheytheedinaar,

“One month   went by and still ,
The god of the monkeys   did not come out,
And then blood came out of the mouth of the cave,
And within me   came great pity ,
And deciding that   my elder brother ,
Was  killed   by the   great Asura  called Mayavi,
I went  back with sorrow   to KIshkinda,
And all monkey heroes  became very sad ,
And the chiefs   of monkeys   performed,
Coronation ceremony to me  as their king.”

Chennithu kalam kuranjonnu pinneyum,
Vannithu Bali  Maha balavan THadhaa ,
Kallittu  vila dwaramadachathu,
KOlluvaan yennorthu  kopichu Baliyum,
KOlluvan yennodu aduthu , bhayena   jnan,

Moodanaam Bali  parigrahicheedinaan ,
OOdaragam mama vallabha thanneyum,
Nadum nagaravum   pathniyumennude ,
Veedum pirinju  dukhichirikkunnu jnan.

Some more   time went by speedily,
One day   the very strong Bali came out ,
Bali got angry with me  thinking  that,
I closed the cave by a stone to kill him,
And came to kill me  and I with fear ,
Fled to all the places   all round ,
And for a lot of time I walked  here and there ,
I came to know that  Bali will not come   to Rushya mooka,
Due to a curse  and I came and started  living here ,
I lived with great faith , oh lord of universe, Oh Lord,
And that  foolish Bali    took for himself
With love  my wife , I am sad  because ,
I have lost   my country , my city , my wife and my home.

Due   to the reason of being able to touch your lotus feet,
Now   I am having a happy  pleasant   time ,.
Hearing the words of the son of Sun god  ,later ,
Being sad due to the sorrow of his friend , Rama,
Told along with mind drenched in mercy ,
“I will kill your enemy  and see to it that,
Your wife , country and wealth  are returned to you,
This  is an oath     and this is the oath of Rama.”

Bhanu thanayanum  ingane chollinaan,
“SArva loka   nadhajanakiya   Baliye ,
Kolluvaan yetham paniyundu nirnayam,
Illa avanolam balam  mathoruvanum,
Cholluvan Bali  than  Parakramam.

Hearing the words of the king among men,
Becoming clear  that son of Sun  told like this,
“”To kill Bali who is the son of Devendra ,
 There  is lot of difficulty  involved,
No one   has as much strength as him,
And I will tell you about   the strength of Bali.”

Dundubiyakum mahasuran vannu ,
Kishkinda pura dwari, mahisha veshamai,
Yudhathinnai vilichoru  nerathu athi,
Krudhanaam Bali puapettu chennudan,
Srungam  pidichu  pathippichu bhoomiyil,
Bangam varuthi   chavutti parichidan,
Uthamangathe   chuzhathi yerinjithu ,
Rakthavum veenu  mathangasrama sthale.

Once a  great Rakshasa  called Dundubhi  came,
To the gate  of Kishkinda   in the form of a buffalo,
And when he called   Bali for a war ,
Bali became  greatly angry, went there  ,
And catching hold of his   horns , made him fall on earth,
And broke his body  and pulled out his horns,
And threw   his head after  rotating  it,
And the blood from that  fell in the hermitage of Mathanga

Asrama dosham varuthiya Bali ponnu,
Ruhya mukhachalathingal  varunnathaagil,
Baliyude  thala potti therichudan,
Kala uri puka madwakya gouravaal,
Yennu  sapichathu kettuKapeendranum ,
Annu thudangi  yivide   varuveela.

If that  Bali who has  spoiled  the sanctity of te hermitahe,
Ever comes    to the Rushya  mooka mountain,
 His head  will break in to pieces,
And he go the place  of God of death,
Due to the power of my words,
So cursed the sage   and the king of monkeys,
From that day onwards  never comes here.

Jnanum athu kondu ivide  vasikkunnu,
Manase  bheethi koodathe nirantharam,
Dundumbi thande thalayithu kankoru,
Mandaram pole  kidakkunnathu bhavan,
Innu ithu eduthu yerinjeedunna sakthannu,
KOnnu koodum  kapivarane nirnayam.

Because  of that I am living here ,
Permanently without  fear of the mind,
You please see   the head  of Dundhubi lying here ,
It is lying like   a huge  mountain,
The person who can take   this and throw it,
Would definitely be able to kill that  great monkey.

Yennathu kettu  chirichu Raghuthaman,

Thannude manthrikalum vismayapettu ,
Nannu nannennu   puguzhnnu pugzhnnavar  ,
Nannai   thozhuthu   thozhuthu ninnedinaar.

Hearing that   , the great one of Raghu clan laughed ,
And using   the thumb   of his holy   feet,
He lifted  it and    threw  it up in the sky,
And  it went and fell down about twenty  miles from there ,
Seeing this  Sugreeva   became  more clear ,
And all his ministers   were filled with wonder ,
And  They praised  and praised  “Good, Very good”,
And all of them again  and again saluted Rama.
  
Pinneyum arkathamajan paranjeedinaan,
“Mannava, Saptha   salangal  yivayallo,

Pathrangalellam kozhinju pom ezhinnum,
Vattathil nilkum ivathaye  oru ambeythu ,
Pottikkil  Baliye  kollai varum   drudam.”

And again the son of Sun God told,
King  , these  are  the seven sala trees,
, Please know that these   are   the trees   meant ,
To  be wrestled   by Bali , when the son of  ,
Indra shakes  them  . the leaves  of all seven trees will fall,
If by sending   one arrow  you are  able ,
To  break  them, which are   standing in a circle ,
 You definitely    can kill Bali.

Hearing the words   of the son of the Sun god,
Rama   who is the descendent of the Sun God,
Twanged his bow and send a shining arrow,
Which drilled through all the   seven sala trees,
And went further pierced the  earth  and mountain,
And   arrow came back    shiningly and ,
Went inside its own quiver with love ,
And the  son of the   Sun god  ,
Who was   surprised smilingly  ,
Saluted Rama    and told.

It is definite that   you are  real lord of universe ,
The divine god   and the witness  to all happenings.
I have  the luck to see  you , possibly  because ,
Of some   good deed  that  I might have done earlier.
The pure ones    sing    about   your feet,
And when I have got you who grants salvation,
I would not ask you anything   except salvation,
The son, the wife, the wealth    and the country
Are all useless   since   they have been created by your illusion,
So my great god , the God   of the devas ,
I do not have any other desire, Lord of earth , please be kind to me.

I have reached    you who is  fully divine joy,
Due to the rise   of luck in my   life,
Oh Lord  of Raghu clan, like getting a treasure  ,
When one digs    the earth   to get some mud.

By following dharma , charity , penance  ,
Bathing in sacred waters , meditation  ,
Completion of rituals  and  fire sacrifice ,
Do not lead  to destruction of birth death chain,
Without devotion to your feet, which ,
Would lead   to seeing of   your lotus like feet ,
My getting you at this time  is due to strength of your grace ,
And he whose mind    does not waver ,
From the thought   of your lotus like feet,
Even for  quarter  of a second , would ,
Easily   get rid   of  his ignorance .

Even if mind does not get firm on you  , if ,
With great devotion  if we chant  Rama, Rama,
All sufferings will be  uprooted  to the one who chants,
And   he would become a good man and become pure.

Whether  he is a drunkard  or a  great saint,
He would  get freedom  by chanting your name ,
I do not have  any desire  in  my mind  for victory over an enemy,
Or the pleasure  that is got   through a wife
And I do not want anything except  devotion,
For getting salvation , Oh Mukunda , Oh  treasure of mercy.

All my sins  by teaching me the way to your devotion,
The illusion of differences   between  the enemy,
Friend and one in the  middle  has gone away from my mind, Oh king ,
By the  serving   of your lotus like   feet,
I have now developed  sufficient wisdom,
And Oh  lord of the universe the connection  ,
Of son and wife  is due to the power  of your illusion.

My hands   should  always  be able ,
To offer   flowers  at your lotus like feet,
My eyes   should be always  be  in a position,
To be able   to see  your very pretty form,
And my ears should always be able  to hear,

Rama  with a very satisfied and happy mind,
Hugged and caressed  Sugreeva who praised him like this,
And  to that  auspicious Sugreeva   who has completely  lost,
All the  dirt in his mind   due to the touch of his body,
That  treasure of mercy   again  made him  one with desire,
For  the sake of  success in his aim.

4.4 Bali Sugreeva Yudham

The war between Bali   and Sugreeva.

Sathya swaroopan  chirichu aruli cheythu ,
“Sathyamathre nee  paranjathedo sakhe ,

Kalam kalayathe  yethuminiyedo,

Palanam   cheythu kolvan  ninne nirnayam.

That personification of truth told with a smile,
“My friend , all that   you told   is true.
You please go and challenge Bali for a fight ,
Without   any further   delay , please,
I will kill Bali and  crown you  as a king  ,
And look after    you definitely.

Arkathmajan athu kettu nadannithu,

Mithrajan chennu  Kishkindsa pura dwari,
Yudhathinai   vilicheedinaan Baliye,
Pruthwiruhuvum  maranju ninnedinaar,
Mithra bhaven Ramadhikal   anneram.

As soon he heard that  Sugreeva    walked ,
Towards the  town of Kishkinda without any confusion,
Rama who was  born in the   family  of Sun God,
The heroic Lakshmana as well as the four ministers,
 Went  along with  Sugreeva to the town of Kishkinda ,
Where   he   called Bali for a war,
And   Rama and others hid behind a tree  in a friendly manner.

Krudhanaam Bali   alari vannedinaan,
Mithra thanayanum  vakshasi kuthinaan,
Vruthrari puthranum  mithra thanayane  ,

Itham  thirichariyavalloruthanum.

The very angry Bali came shouting ,
And son of sun God  hit him on the chest,
And the son of Indra   gave the son of Sun God.
A Hit  fiercer  by  ten or even hundred times,
And due     the enmity  between them,
The was   became   extremely fearsome  ,
And both of them drenched in blood looked alike,
And when they were  fighting  with each other  with great strength,
It was   not possible   for anyone  to identify,
Which was the son of Indra and which the son of  Sun God.

Mithra vinasana saangayaa Raghavan,
Asthra  prayogavum  cheytheela athu neram,

Yehrayum  aarthyaa  parushangal chollinaan.

Rama with a doubt  of his destroying his friend by mistake ,
At that  time    did not send    an arrow,
And with hit of fist by the   son of Devendra,
The son of Sun god  vomited   blood   and ran,
Immediately     with great  pain,
And the son of Devendra  went back to his house ,
The son of  Sun god who came greatly fear stuck,
Addressing  Rama who  wonderfully  follows his  friend,
Told some   very  unkind words   with great pain.

SAthruvine  kondu kollikkayo  thava,

I am not knowing  whether in your mind,
You are  thinking of getting me  killed by enemy,
And If you think , I should die , you could have ,
Killed  me by your arrows, yourself,
I thought that  truth  is for sure , and ,
In that I did  great mistake , Oh treasure of mercy,
I thought   that  you are  the guardian of truth  ,
And that  became useless , Oh lover of those  who surrender.

Mukthavanayilla   asthram dharikka   nee.

Hearing this type of painful  reply from  son of a Sun God,
Lord Rama   replied  after hugging him with   a  tear ,
Filled eyes, “My friend  , do not get scared in the mind,
In the middle of  very fast   fight  with great emotions,
I was not able to identify  you both , and ,
Due to fear of killing a friend , understand , I did not send an arrow.”

For avoiding   confusion of mind, Oh son of Sun god,
I shall   make  an identification on you,
And you go immediately   and invite for fight ,
Your enemy , the   son of Devendra .your elder brother,
And you get confirmed that  he would be dead ,
This is my vow , if I  am Rama ,
What I say should not become  an imagination.

After consoling  the son of Sun God like this  ,
Rama   told   the   son of Sumithra ,
“You put a flower garland on  the neck,
Of the son of Sun god and send him to fight,’
The elder brother of Shathrugna   tied a garland  ,
And sent the son of Sun god to the temple  of joy.

 

4.5 Bali Vadham

The killing  of Bali

Vruthrari puthrane yudhathinnai kondu,
Mithrarthmajan   vilicheedinaan pinneyum,
Krudhanai   ninnu KIshkindha pura dwari ,

Badha vairam  purapettoru nerathu,
Bharthruragre   chennu  badhasru  nethrayai,
Madhye  thaduthu cholledinaal   tharayum.

Again the   son of Sun God   called,
The son of Devendra   to a fight,
With great anger  and standing at ,
The gate  of   the town of Kishkinda ,
And he  also shouted  like a lion .
Hearing  that call  which was with great anger,
Bali who was   greatly surprised ,
Wearing the battle   cloth , immediately,
With great enmity   started   for the war  ,
And at that time  there went Thara,
With eyes full of tears and stopping him told.

“SAnkha viheenam purapettathu yenthoru,
Sanka yundu  ullil yenikkathu  kelkka nee ,
Vigrahathingal  parajithanai poya,
Sugreevan aasu vanneduvaan karanam,
Yethrayum param parakramam ulloru,
Mithram  avan undu pin thuna nirnayam.”

How come   you have started   without any doubt,
I have a suspicion, please  hear  that,
What   is the reason   for Sugreeva ,
Who was defeated  in the fight   to come back,
And it is definite    that  he has  the great support,
Of  a friend   who has  very great valour.”

Baliyum  THarayodu cholledinaan,
“Bale  , Balal oru sankha yundakola,
Kai ayachidu   nee vaikaruthu yethume ,
Neeyoru karyam   darikkanam omale,
Bandhuvai aarullathu   orkka Sugrevannu,
Bandamillennodu  vairathinnarkkume.”

Bali then told   Thara ,
“Young lady , there is no need  to get any doubt,
Please    allow  me to go  , because  it should not be late ,
Dear  , You have   to understand one aspect  ,
Who  is there   who is a friend to Sugreeva  ,
And as for me   no one has enmity  with me.

Suppose   he   has many friends  and is with many,
He definitely is one who should  be killed,
And when   the enemy   comes to our house ,
And when one hears his calling him for a war,
Will a valorous   man simply keep  quiet ,
Will he remain shut as a coward, please tell,
I will kill the enemy soon and come back,
Oh wife  , wait   with  braveness.

THarayum chonnal   athu kettu, avanodu,

Hearing  that Thara   told him,
“Oh head gem of valour , If so hear what  I say,
When my   son Angadha went  for hunting,
He heard   a story which he told me,
Hear that  and do what you think is proper,
Dasaratha   is  a king of Ayodhya  ,
He   has a son called   Rama  ,
And he along with his brother  and ,
His wife Sita who is equal to goddess Lakshmi,
Came    to the   Dandaka  forest,
And living there he   was doing penance.

The    Rakshasa   Ravana who is very bad,
Has  stolen   his wife , and searching  for her with Lakshmana,
He   has come now   to the  Rushya Mooka mountain.
There  he has   seen the son of Sun God,
And they have signed a treaty   with fire as witness ,
That   they   will   live together  as friends,
And for achieving the  removal of sorrow,
Rama   has  taken an oath, “Oh son of Sun God,
I will kill the   son of Indra  and make you,
Who is the son of Sun God as a king there”
And immediately at   that time , the son of Sun God,
Also took an oath as   reciprocation that
“I will search and find out Sita Devi  and  find her out”,
And that  is the reason why he has come  ,
And so forsake all  enmity  towards  Sugreeva,
And  live by making him the junior king<
And you go and speedily surrender  to Rama,
So that you can save Angadha , our kingdom and clan.”

Ingane cholli karanju kalum pidichu,
Angine    thara namaskarikkum vidhou ,

Telling like this crying and holding his feet,
And when Thara   was  saluting him,
Without sorrow   hugging and hugging her ,
Bali    told her   with great deal of love,
“ The habit of women  is to get scared,
But hear me wife , there is n need for fear,
If Sri Rama   and Lakshmana   have come here,
It is definite that  they will join with me ,
For nobody has  love to him as much as I have,
And  Rama   is the   real  great Lord Vishnu,
And he has taken an incarnation in earth,
To lighten the   burden of mother  earth, 
This   is what   I hear  “

“Paksha bhedam BHagawannu illa,
NIrgunan , yekanathmaraman , easwaran,
THacharanambuje  veennu  Namaskarichu,

God does not have  favoritism
He is one without properties , lonely ,
One who entertains the soul    and God,
I would   fall at his feet and salute him,
And with his consent  I will bring him here,
For  the help that  I can provide  him,
Is more than what Sugreeva can, remember this,
And God does   not have   the   habit  of,
Praying the   one who is praising him,
For  hey wife, God is one who recognizes  devotion,
And considering devotion , no one has   it as much as I have,
And so live in home   after  removing this sorrow,
Oh lady with lotus eyes , Oh a full lake of good qualities.

Consoling her like this  that  son of Devendra ,
Immediately  angrily dressed for a battle  ,
And  left home   to do the   war ,
So that   he can kill   Sugreeva  angrily ,
And Thara    shedding and shedding drops of tears ,
And with increasing sorrow   went inside.

Bali  biting his teeth   and shouting,
Rushed saying stop , stop   and at that  time,
Sugreeva hit Bali by his fist and the exuberant,
Bali   did the   same  to Sugreeva ,
When he beat   him with his   closed fists,
They  caught each other, hit each others ,
Legs  and arms, hit each other  by their,
Knees as well as   their head , caught each other ,
Bit each other, fell down, rolled  in the mud,
Angrily   hurt    with their  nails  ,
Jumped on them, jumped   together,
Hit and defended it  ,  gave more hits than the other,
Chased each other  and  faded  with sweat,
Called each other names, neared each other with anger,
Sweat covering the body, with nerves expanding ,
And those   who saw   this great   fist fight ,
Enjoyed it and praised  both of them,
And it is definite that  the war between Shiva  and the  God of death,
Was  in no way equal to war between Bali and Sugreeva.

It was like two oceans fighting with each other,
It was like   two mountains fighting with each other ,
And those  who saw  shouted    as well  as praised them,
And no tiredness  was seen in case of both,
And Bali was wearing the garland given by his father ,
And Sugreeva  was wearing one given by Lord Rama,
And though there  was no difference between them,
The body of the son of Sun God had grevious wounds.

Sugreeva  became more tired ,
And saw with sorrow    Sri Rama,
For getting hit by the fist of his elder brother,
Sugreeva  had become extremely weak,
And seeing this with mercy and great speed,
The One living in Vaikunta and the son of Daratha,
Hiding behind a tree  and Aiming  at the chest   of Bali ,
Placed  the Mahendra  arrow  on the bow, pulling it well,
And sent speedily    and that  went and hit Bali’s chest,
And he fell down with a great shout and when he slightly fainted,
And that son of  wind god   saluted Rama   and prayed.

 For a little time   he got fainted  and then,
He  became conscious  and  Bali saw,
Rama at a little distance   before him,
Holding  the arrow on his right hand  .
And holding the bow   in the other hand ,
Wearing a dress of tree bark , having a quiver,
And a soft  smiling face , With a tuft  worn like a crown,
Wearing  a forest garland on his chest,
With  pretty   and very long  hands,
With a body of the colour of leaves of Doorva grass,
 Being served   on both sides,
By  both   Lakshmana   and Sugreeva,
And understanding who it is  and with,
Anger  tinged with  sorrow and pain Bali told.

“What mistake   have I done to you,
Why did you murder me unnecessarily,
How come you  did not  follow the king’s dharma,
 And have   adopted   the Dharma  of the thief,
What  fame   have   you got because  of this,
Think about it, are you nor born in a royal family?
If  you are  following the Dharma of a hero,
And were   doing it   for   getting fame  ,
You should have fought directly with me and won,
What   is that  which Sugreeva has   done to you,
Which  one  I could not have done?
Because the great Rakshasa  kidnapped your wife,
 You came   and surrendered  with son of Sun God,
And though    you have killed  me now,
Have you not heard   about my prowess.

Who is there  in the three  worlds,
Who  do not know my strength  as a  hero?
Within ten minutes and without any doubt  ,
I would have brought   the town of Lanka,
With its three mountains as well  as ,
The arrested Ravana in front of you,
And would have   saluted  you, with respect.
Oh Lord of Raghu clan , good people,
Of the world claim that  you defend Dharma?
What   Dharma   did you get  out of,
Killing like a hunter a monkey,
By deceiving him  and killing him,
What  respect did you get, please  tell,
Oh king  why did the  thought ,
Of eating the meat of monkey come in your mind?

To the Bali who talked   too much ,
That  Sri Rama   gave the  following answer,
“Without any competition  I am walking everywhere,
 Along with weapons to protect Dharma.
You being a sinner going against   the cannons of Dharma,
I wanted to remove that sin and establish Dharma,
And that is why I killed you , though you were passionate ,
You yourself do not know about yourself,
According to Vedas  , daughter  , sister,
The wife of the brother, wife of the son ,
And mother  are treated to be in same way.
If one   takes  any of them  as wife due to passion,
He is the greatest  sinner  among all  the sinners,
And so because  of that they  will get suffering.

The valorous    kings kill,
Those who do not follow the propriety  of conduct,
And would  bring back    the rule of law  in this world,
You are a pure soul, think about this,
For cleaning    up this  world,
The kings who look after  it  would wander  at all places,
And so do not unnecessarily   talk any further ,
And if you do   your sins will  further increase .

Hearing  all that was   told by Sri Rama ,
The mind of the king of monkeys was  cleansed ,
And he understood that  Rama is Narayana himself,
And  when the base quality disappeared  , with nervousness,
He told, “Please  pardon my  mistake,
Oh Sri Rama, Oh Rama , Oh great soul  , Oh Raghava,
It is definite   that you are  Lord Narayana,
Whatever I have   told without proper thought ,
May  please be pardoned by  you with great mercy.

When  you are  witnessing and seeing ,
 The  end came   by the   arrow of yours,
And the luck to leave my body  like that,
Is indeed  a great luck, every one will tell.
And this is difficult to get even by great   sages,
Oh consort of Lakshmi , Just seeing you  is salvation,
And to the man who with  self mortification,
Tells your name   when he is about to die,
Will always   definitely   get salvation.
To be able to see  you god who lives in  the town,
And getting the luck of    dying  by your  arrow,
With love and great  love to you,
Is indeed my great luck, Who will ever get this.

You who are   Lord Vishnu  , and  Lady Janaki  ,

And  as per the request   Of Lord Brahma ,
You were   born as the son of   Dasaratha,

Please  take special care  of Angadadha,
My son who is equal in my  strength,
And please  accept  the  son of Sun God,
And Angadha     for  my sake  ,
Please remove the arrow and with your holy  hand,
Pat   me    slowly   and with great love.

Hearing that    Sri Rama  took out the arrow,
And patted  him slowly with great love,
And seeing the lotus like face of the human hero,
Bali  left the body of the monkey,
And went to the world  , which is ,
Difficult to  achieve to  even groups of great sages.

When Bali   entered  the  feet of Rama  ,
Through   Rama who is   the divine god,
The collection of monkeys  ran very fast due to fear,
And entered  in side the city of Kishkinda,
And those monkeys    told to Thara ,
Our king of monkeys has gone to heaven ,
Due to the arrow of Rama during the war.
Oh Thara , without delay make your son as the king,
And shut all the four entrances to the city,
And make the town of Kishkinda impenetrable ,,
And give orders   to the ministers   that ,
Our enemies should not  be allowed   inside.”

Mruthyu lokam  pravesikunnathundu jnan.”

Hearing   the death of Bali ,  Thara ,
With tears  dripping drop by drop   for her eyes ,
Which hit on her chest  again and again,
And with   stuttering voice     said several times,
“What is the need  of son and country  to me,
What is the need of this purpose less  life,
Without any hesitation   I would  also,
Enter   the land of dead   along with my husband.”

Itham karanju  karanjaval  chennu than,

Like that crying and crying   and seeing  ,
Her  husband’s body decorated  by blood and mud,
She fainted  and wanting to embrace death,
That Thara   fell  at the feet of her husband,
And started    crying  and wailing  in several ways,
“ Shoot   and kill me also now  , because ,
I cannot tolerate  to live without my husband,
And if you send   me along with my husband ,
Then you will get the effect  of giving in charity a maid,
And  as a gentleman  Oh  , Lord of Raghu clan,
Already are   you not aware  of the sorrow ,
Of parting with    your wife, and Oh Sugreeva,
Now after   getting  over    your sorrow ,
You live with Ruma and enjoy ,
Pleasures   of the position   of a king.

Itham paranju  karayunna  Tharayodu ,

To Thara   who told like this   and was crying,
The chief of Raghu clan told as answer,
Merciful words   as a  philosophical teaching ,
So that  her  oorow of parting with her husband will reduce.

4.6 Tharopadesam

Teaching to Thara.

“Yenthinu  sokam vrudhaa thava? Kelkaa nee ,
Bandamillethum ithinnu   Manohare ,
 Ninnude bharathavu   DEhamo jeevano?
Dhanye   Parmatham yennodu chollu nee  ,
Pancha bhoothathmakam deham yetham jadam,
SAnchitham thwang mamsa  rakthasthi   kondoto?


Why this   is  unnecessary sorrow? Please hear  ,
Oh pretty one , there  is no   relation to it,
But was your husband his soul  or  his body?
Oh blessed one    tell the truth to me,
The five elements make the body , but this corpse ,
Is only a collection of  skin  , flesh  , blood  and bone, is it not?

NIschesta  kashta thulyam deham  orkku nee,
Nischayam aathmavu  jevan niramayan,

Avyayan  aakasa  thulyan  alepakan,
Shudhamai nithyamai jnanathmaka maya ,
THathwam orthu  yenthu dukathinnu karanam ?”

Remember the body  is equal to  an immobile piece of wood,
And it is definite that   the being is soul,
There is no birth nor death for it ,
And so  do not get worried   thinking about it,
It will not stand   nor walk , here ,
And it is not matter   of  sorrow , definitely,
It does not have  the state of man or woman or eunuch,
And know that  it also  does not feel hot or cold ,
Knowing all  the soul is alone, divine , without a second,
Non changing , similar to the sky , without any name  ,
Always pure , lives  forever  and  is the philosophical,
Principle   of illusion ,  What is the need  for sorrow.

Rama vakyamrutham kettoru  THarayum,
Ramanodasu  chodhichithu pinneyum,
“Nischeshta   kashta thulyam  dehamayathum,
SAchid aathma   nithyamayathu  jeevanum,
Dukha sukhadi sambandam aarkennullathu,
Okke arul cheyyanam   , dhaya   nidhe.

Hearing the nectar  like words of Rama,
She again  asked  the following to Rama,
“When the body is equal to immobile piece of wood,
And   the soul is the divine   soul which is forever,
Please tell me   , who among these  has ,
Connection with sorrow   and pleasure ,
Please  tell this, Oh treasure of mercy.

Yennathu kettu arul cheythu  Raghu varan,
“Dhanye  Rahasyamayullathu   kelkka nee,
Yathoralavu  dehe indriya ahankara ,
BHedha bhavena sambandam undai varum,
 Athranalekkum   athmavinnu samsaram,
Yethum aviveka karanal nirnayam.”

Hearing that  , the blessed   Raghava told,
“Blessed  one , please  hear this which is kept as secret,
Till the  day  that  the body   has  a relation ,
Caused   by  differences in body, sense organs  
And pride  with the soul ,  It  will have,
Touch with domestic life   till then.

Mithyagamam nija swapne yadha thadham,
SAthyamyullathu kettalum engilo.

When we think about it the domestic life.
Which is a body of imagination,
 Would   never   change   by itself,
And  be pleased to hear about  the man
Who keeps on  thinking about  many things,
The domestic life   is only just like ,
The happenings   of a dream.
Please now hear  what  is truth.

Noonam anadhya  avidhya bandha hethunaa ,

Manasam   samsara  karanamayathum,
Manasathinnu   bandham  bhavikkunnathum,
Aathma  mana samanathwam bhavikkayaal ,
AAthmanasthal  krutha bandham bhavikkunnu.

Definitely due to the primeval  relation  of  Negative  knowledge ,
The egoism mixed     with pride   for that purpose ,
Creates  the domestic life, which is meaningless ,
Because domestic life  is mixed    with passion and anger ,
Mind   builds  a relation   with domestic life,
And  because  soul  and mind  are on equal footing,
The soul also   builds   a similar  relation.

Yethum aathmavinnu   samsaravum balal.

By    coming in to    contact with red blood,
A pure crystal   also   appears  to be red,
But if you see in reality  , it has not taken that colour,
Think about this in your mind  and conclude  properly,
The soul appears to have a relation with domestic life,
Only due   to its being influenced by intelligence  and senses.

Aathma swalingamayoru   manassine,

Sathwadhikalaam   gunangalaal badhnai  ,
SEvikkayaal   avasathwam  kalarnnathu  ,
BHavikka kondu   samsare   valayunnu.

The soul  uses  the mind which is its creation,
And  embraces   it with great interest,
And serves  the  desire which is a character of the mind,
Attached by  its  own properties  like Satwa, rajas  and Thamas,
And   due to it  becomes greatly weakened ,
And as  a   result of this  undergoes suffering in domestic life.

Mikkathum thath samanya  prabhavangalai,
Ingane karma vasena   jevan   balal,
 Yengum aabhootha plavam bramichidunnu.

Initially    the mind   creates   these characters,
And observes   the various rituals  indicated  by Vedas,
Which are a mixture  of White (Sathwa), red(rajasa) ,
And  black (thamasa) ,  and  while doing most of these  Karmas ,
This  soul  due   to the actions  of these ,
Continues to live till the deluge  , When all  the  bodies  perish.

Jayathe  bhooyo ghatiyanthraval  sadaa ,
Maya balathal  athu aarkku ozhikkamedo

Then   at the time  of death of all , the soul,
Getting tangled   with  primeval negative knowledge  ,
Due   to  the memories left in there  , and again,
At the time of creation , along with the  ,
Memories   of the past , takes birth ,
Like a time machine  with embedded memories,
And who can prevent  this   rotation of time?

Yathorikkal  nija punya viseshena  ,

 Shudha swaroopa   vignanavum   jayathe  ,
Sal guru nadha prasadena manase,
Mukhya vakhyartha   vijnanam undai varum.

At  that  time  by the effect of good deeds  that one does,
When  his mind gets company of holy people.
To  the peaceful soul  who is devoted to me,
His  mind firmly gets  attached to me,
He  gets  interested in hearing my stories,
And when  in his mind the pure knowledge of soul enters,,
Then  by the grace of a  good  Guru,
He would start  realizing  the chief sayings of Vedas.

Dehendriya mana pranadhikalil  ninnu,
AA hantha , veronnu noonam athmavithu,
Sathyam anandam yekam paramadwayam,
Nithyam nirupamam nishkalam, nirgunam,
Itham ariyumbol mukthanam appozhe ,
Sathyam mayodhitham  sathyam mayoditham,
Yathoruthan vicharikkunnathingane ,
Chethasi samsara dukham avanilla.

Understand definitely that  the soul  is different,
From body, organs, mind and life  and is ,
Truth , joyful , alone , divine, one without second,
Forever, matchless , stain less and character less.
As soon as you understand this  you get free immediately,
What I say is truth, what I say is truth,
And to the one  who thinks like  this,
There is no sorrow due to life in his mind.

Karma bandathingal ninnudan ver pettu,
Nirmala brahmani thanne layikka nee ,
Chithe ninakku kazhinja janmathingal ,
Yethrayum bhakthi yundu yengal, athu kondu,
Roopavum evam ninakku katti thannu,

Please  remember what  I have told you, become pure,
And leave out the stupor created  by illusion, Oh pretty one,
Get  detached   from the ties of Karma , immediately,
Please get  merged  in the very pure Brahmam,
Due  to the great devotion that  you had in last birth to me,
I showed   my real form to you ,
Throw away the sorrow, completely  from your mind,
And if you  meditate on  my form that  you see,
And remember  the words  that  I just told you,
You would  definitely  get salvation,
And what  I told you  is not falsehood.

Sri Rama vakyam  anandena kettoru,
Tharayum   vismayam poondu vananginaal,
Moham akannu thelinjithu chithavum,
Deha abhimana ja dukhavum pokkinaal,’
Athmanubhoothi  kondasu  santhushtyai,
Athma bodhena jeevan mukthayayinaal.

After joyfully hearing the words of Rama,
Thara was wonderstruck  and saluted him,
Her mind  awoke  from the stupor,
And she lost all sorrow emanating  from the body,
And becoming  contended  due to realization of soul,
Due to the teaching , she attained salvation  ,
Even when she   was  alive.

Moksha pradanaya Raghavan thannodu ,
Kal kshanam sangama mathrena Tharayum,
Bhakthi muzhthittu  anadhi bandham theernnu,
Mukthayayal , oru nariyennakilum,
Vygram yellam  akale ppoi thelinjithu,
Sugreevanum  iva kettoranantharam,
Ajnanam yellam akannu  soukhyam poondu ,
Vijnanamodu  athi swasthanayaan   thulom.

Tahra with the company   of  Rama who can grant salvation,
For such a short time , became ripened in her devotion,
And got detached   from  the primeval  relations,
And got salvation , and though she was a lady,
All her perplexity vanished and  her mind became clear,
And Sugreeva  after  hearing all these,
Lost all his ignorance , became happy,
And got contentment  by  divine knowledge.

4.7 Sugreeva rajyabhishekam

Crowning  of Sugreeva.


Sugreevanodu arul cheythan  anantharam,
“Agraja puthranaam Angadhan thanneyum,
Munnittu samskaradhi karmangale,
Punyaha paryantham  aa hantha, cheyga nee.”
Ramagnayaa  thelinjaasu  Sugreevanum ,
AAmodha poorvam  orukki thudanginaan,
Soumyamayulloru tharayum  puthranum,’
Brahmanarum  Amathya pradhananmarum,
Poura janangalumai  nrupendrochitham,
Bheri mrudangaadhi vadhya ghoshathodum,’
Sasthroktha margena  karmam kazhichadha,
Snathwaa  jagama Raghuthama  sannidhou.

Then later  Rama  told Sugreeva,
“Please  perform the death rites of your brother,
Making Angadha  taking the lead ,
Till   the purification   period comes again ,”
Sugreeva  understanding Rama’s order,
Started  making preparations  for the rites.
The very peaceful  Thara  , her son,
Brahmins  , the  important ministers,
And the citizens , in a way suitable  to the king,
Along   with  playing of drums and other  musical instruments,
Completed   the rituals  as per  Sastras,
And after  taking bath  He appeared  before Rama.

Manthrigalodum  pranamya  padambuja,
Manthar mudhaa paranjan kapi pungavan,
“Rajyathe rakshichu kolga vena mini ,
Poojyanalkum  ninthiruvadi sadaram,.
Dasanayittulor adiyan  ithava,
Sasanayum  paripalichu  santhatham,
Deva devesa, they  pada padma dwayam,
Sevichu kolluvan Lakshmanane ppole.”

That monkey chief  along with the ministers,
Saluted   the lotus feet of Rama  and with joy  told,
“Your honorable self   has  to look,
After  and protect the kingdom now,
I being  your  lowly slave would,
Always obey your commands ,
Oh God of gods , I would  serve ,
Your  lotus like  feet  like Lakshmana.

Sugreeva vakkukal  itharam kettu udan,
Agre chirichu arul cheythu Raghuthaman,
“Nee thanne , jnan athinnu illoru samsayam,
Preethanai  poyalum aasu mamagnayaa,
Rajyadhipathyam  ninakku thannen  , ini,
Poojyanai   chennabhishekam  kazhikka nee.

As soon  as he heard the words of Sugreeva like this,
That great one of Raghu clan smiled in front and told,
“ You are  myself, there is no doubt about that ,
As per my order, you go back pleased,
Because I have given the kingship  to you,
And now  go and  get  the crowning done.”

“Noonam oru nagaram pugayumilla,
Jnano pathinalu samvathsaratholam ,
Soumithri cheyyum abhishekam aadaraal,’
Samarthyamulla  kumarane pinne nee,
Youva rajyarthamabhishechaya prabho,
SArvam adeenam  ninakku rajyam sakhe,
Baliye ppole paripalanam cheythu,
Balaneyum  paripalichu kolga nee.”

I will not definitely enter  a town,
For   fourteen long years.
And so Lakshmana   will do the crowning,
Also please  crown the intelligent  boy,
As  the junior king , Oh lord,
And friend, the  entire kingdom is under your control,
And now look after it exactly as Bali did,
And also  look after  the boy very well.

Adri shikare vasikkunnathundu jnan,
Adhya prabruthi chathur masyamakullal,
Pinne  varisham kazhinjaal  anantharam,
Anweshanartham  prayathnangal cheyga nee ,
Thanwangi  than iruppidam  arinju,
Vannennodu cholgayum venam mama  sakhe,
Athra nalum  purathingal vasikka nee,
Nithya sukhathodum darathmajai samam.

I would   live  on the  top of the mountain,
Because  of the starting  of four months penance,
And after  the rains are over ,
You make efforts to  enquire, and once  you ,
Find out the place  where the pretty lady is staying,
You have   to come  and tell me,my friend,
Till that  time you live  in the town,
With daily pleasures  along with wife and son.

Raghavan thanodu anugnayum  kai kondu,
Vegena Soumithriyodu Sugreevanum ,
Chennu puri pukkabhishekavum cheythu,
Vannithu Ramanthike Sumithrathmajan,
Sodaranodum pravarshanakhye  girou,
Sadaram  chennu kareri Raghuthaman.

After  getting the blessings of Sri Rama,
Sugreeva went speedily along with Lakshmana,
Went inside the town  and got crowned,.
Then son of Sumithra  came back to Rama,
Rama along  with his brother ,
Went to the to live on  the Pravarshana mountain,

Unnatha moordha  shikharam  pravesichu,
Ninna neram oru gahwaram kaanayi,
Sphatika deepthi   kalarnnu  vilangina,
Hataka desam mani pravarojjwalam,
Vatha  varisha  himatha pravaaranam,
Pada vrunda  phala moola sanchitham,
THathraiva  vasaaya  rochayaamasa,
Soumithrinaa  Sri Rama bhadaran manoharan.

After  entering  the top peak of the mountain,
When they stood   they saw  one cave,
And that cave   had the light   of a crystal,
And was a golden place  studded  with gems.
And was not affected  by wind , rain  ,and cold,
And was full of trees which had fruits and roots,
And  since  they liked living there ,
Rama   and Lakshmana  continued to live there.

Sidha yogendradhi bhaktha janam  thadhaa,
Marthya vesham,  poonda Narayanan thanne ,
Pakshi mrugadhi   roopam  darichanwaham,
Pakshi dwajane  bhajichu  thudanginaar,
Sthawara jangama jathikal yevarum,
DEvane kandu sukichu maruvinaar..

The Sidhas , great yogis   as well as  devotes.
Took  the form of birds   and animals ,
And  seeing Lord Narayana  in human form,
Started  singing   about the one with bird on his flag,
And all the moving and not moving beings  ,
Also became very happy to be seeing the God.

Raman thathra   Samadhi virathanai,
Yekantha dese  maruvum dasanthare ,
Yekadhaa vandhichu Soumithri  chodichu aruleedinaan,
“Kelkkayil agraham  param  kriya margam,
Aakhyahi  moksha padam  , triloki pathe,
Varnasramikalkku  mokshadam pol  , athu,
Varnichu   arul cheyka venam Dhaya  nidhe.

Once when Rama had  come out of the Samadhi,
And  was living in a place of solitude,
Lakshmana   saluted him  with love  and asked,
“I have the wish to ask you  to tell , the method of worship,
Which  leads to salvation , Oh lord of the three  worlds,
It seems it   is the method of salvation for the householder,
Kindly tell about  in detail to me.”

Narada vyasa virinchadhikal  sadaa,
Narayana pooja kondu  sadhikkunnu,
Nithyam  purushartham yennu  yogeendranmaar,
Bhakthyaa parayuynnithennu  kelppundu , jnan,

Lokaika nadhaa , bhavan arul cheykilo ,
Lokopakaram  makayum  undallo.
Lakshmanan yevam unarthicha nerathu,
Thal kshane   Sri ramadevan aul cheythu.

Sages like Narada   and Vyasa  and God Brahma  ,
Through   daily worship of Narayana always,
Achieve Dharama, wealth , desire  and salvation,
Say the great sages with great devotion , that is what I hear,
Please  tell me who is  your devotee  and slave,
 The way   to salvation, Oh Lord of the world,
And if you  tell it , it would also become useful  to the world,
And when Lakshmana   made   this request,
Immediately  The God Rama  told him as follows.

4.8 Kriyamargopadesam

The teaching  of methods of proper   worship.

Kelka   nee yengil  mal  pooja vidhanathinnu,
Orkkil  avasanamillennu ariga,
Yengilum  cholluvaan ottu  samkshepichu ,

Thannude thannude   guhyoktha maargena,
Mannidathingal dwijathwam undai vannal ,
Acharyanodu  manthram kettu sadaram,
Acharya  poorvam aaradhikka maamedo.

Then hear  the method of my worship ,
Which really  does not have an end,
Still I will tell you with a lot of summarization,
Due to  the maturing of great affection towards you,
When each and every one  follows  his own secret method,
In the earth these  methods multiplied to more than two,
So you have to ask your Guru  about the proper chant,
And   have to worship me in front of your  Guru.

Undengilo punar uthamam yethrayum,

It can be done in the  our lotus heart,
Or can be   done  before the  fire god ,
Or important idols  or in place of worship ,
Or in water  or in leveled  seat of worship ,
Or  to the suitable salagrama* stone,
Which   is the most appropriate.

Using   the chants   or tantric rites said in the Vedas,
Using   the rites of cleaning   with mud,
After  taking bath in the morning for cleanliness of the body,
Understanding the correct root chant ,
After  performing the rituals   of dawn ,
After  performing    the daily rituals,
Do the meditation to clean  your actions ,
And then assuming   that I am your teacher,
Worship  daily with great devotion.

Give bath to the statue for  its auspiciousness,
Then it has to be  cleaned and dried, and to the one
Who later worships using sandal and flowers,
All his desires would be fulfilled, please know this,
Decoration   of the main statue ,
Gives   me lot of   joy, please  know this.

With respect  we have  to offer Havis(cooked food)  to the fire,
Or  if it is the leveled place outside , it should be offered to the Sun,
It is necessary  that before we start, all   the necessary  material 
For worship   should  be collected earlier .
Even water  offered to me with  attention,
If given by  a devotee    is  greatly liked by me
I shall be more pleased  , if  I am offered  sandal, 
Flowers  , sacred rice ,  and eatables  are offered.

 Seat made of cloth, deer skin  or  grass,
Are   good and holy  and  should be used,
You have to go with peace  before God,
And  do   the ritual chanting with lips along with joy,
And then do  the  spiritual   rituals,
And  due the fivefold ritual of the cage to my statue,
And  this   has to be followed by  ritual chants,
Keep in front of you  , on the left a water pot ,
And on the right   side   flowers  and other materials,
And you have  to collect all these  with complete devotion.

The fruits and flowers   for Arghya  , water  as Padhya  ,
Madhuparka*,  water for inner cleansing , are ,
The four vessels  that should be kept before us.
 Without   any other  thought in the mind,
You have to meditate on my crescent which is symbol of life ,
Which shines like lightning , firmly.
       *Mixture of curd, ghee , water , honey and sugar.

Then we should firmly believe   that   you  are ,
Completely spread   all over  my  body , without any doubt,
And then bring in to the statue   my crescent ,
And meditate   it as    the form of God,
Afterwards , Arghya, Padhya and Madhu parka  ,
Should be offered , followed by ,
Offering of bath and cloth and other decorations,
The amount  of  respect and hospitality that is offered to me,
I would be satisfied   to that   extent.

As per   the instruction of Vedas , offer  lighted camphor,
Incense  , light  and  food offering in a detailed manner ,
And If these  are  offered with sincerity   and faith,
Know that  I also accept them with sincerity,
And lad  you remember  me by chanting the root chant,
Or  chant Purusha Sooktha  with  great devotion,
In  the fire sacrifice done  in the  fire ,
Lighted  according to specification of  sage Agasthya.

In the fire of Oupasana* offer  rice cooked with butter and milk,
As the sacred  offering and this way you do the fire sacrifice ,
The  knowing one  during the fire sacrifice meditates,
Me as  situated  in the middle of the fire ,
Which shines equal to the  molten gold ,
AS one   who is decorated  by divine  ornaments.
            *The sacred fire maintained  by the householder.

Then offer sacrifice  to those  devas  who are present there,
And bring to an end the fire sacrifice ,
Chant with devotion  the manthra in silence,
Give   betel leaf and other material which brings scent  to the mouth,
And  later in front of me  offer dance , music , and chanting of prayers,
Fixing me in their mind , wear  the prasada*    which  is given by me,
On the head  and with great  happiness pray,
“Please protect me from the horrible  life of birth and death”.
And after  this offer  salutation by falling on the ground ,
Bring to an auspicious end   the   Kriya yoga ,
And you have   to do this daily  , my friend.
*The offering made to God

Bhakthi samyuthanayulla marthyan mudhaa,

Bhakthyaa padikka   than kelkka   than cheykilo,

Bhaktha  priyan  arul cheythaan anneram.

The man who is blessed with devotion, if,
He happily observes  this Kriya Yoga daily,
On his death   , he   would merge   with me,
And also  when he is alive , he would get pleasures of the world.
If this  Kriya Yoga which has   been told by me ,
Is daily  read   or heard    along with devotion,
He would get the effect of daily  worship.”
Said  the God wo loves his devotees  , at that time.

After   telling like  this in great detail,
To Lakshmana   who is born   with  the power of Adhi Sesha,
That  divine Narayana , who is filled  with illusion,
Assumed   the illusion  and started feeling sad,
“Hey daughter of Janaka , Hey Sita , Hey pretty one,
Hey bewitcher of the world. Hey dear , Hey my darling,”
Like this he was   wailing   and
Sleep  did  not come   to that  god of gods at that time.
And Lakshmana   using his  nectar  like words,
For some time   consoled him to become  peaceful.

 4.9 Hanumal  Sugreeva   Samvadam

The talk  between Hanuman and Sugrreva.

Ingane vazhunna  kalam oru dhanam,
Angu Kishkindapurathuingal   vazhunna,
Sugreevanodu  paranju  pavanajan,
Agre vanangi  niinu yekanthamaam vannam,
“Kelkka Kapeendra, ninakku hithangalaa,

Ninnude karyam varuthi Raghuthaman,
Munname Sathya vruthan, purushothaman,
Pinne neeyoniroopihilla thethumennu,
Yennude manase thonnunnathu innaho”

While they were living like this   one day,
In Kishkinda town , Hanuman  stood near ,
And saluted    Sugreeva  , when they were  alone and told,
“ Please  hear me king of monkeys, I am telling ,
These words   which are meant for your  good.
The best among Raghu clan completed your job,
Earlier as  he is a follower of truth and the best among men,
But after  that  I feel  , you have  not given
Any thought  in your mind, it seems.”

Bali  maha balavan , kapi pungavan,
TRilokya sammathan, deva rajathmajan,
Ninnude moolam marichubalal avan,

Adhya  vaa swo vaa  paraswodha thava ,
Mruthyu  bhavikkum   athinilla samsayam,
Prathyupakaram marakkunna purushan,
Chathinnokkume jevichirikkilum.”

Bali was   greatly strong , the best among monkeys,
One recognized  by all three worlds,
The   son of Devendra, died  because of you,
Your wants  have   been  fulfilled earlier,
You have been crowned and you ,
Are  staying here  along with Thara , worshipped by all,
You have to think in your  mind,
As to how many days you  can prolong like this,
There is no doubt that death can come  today.
Or tomorrow    or   any other   day,
And the man who    forgets   gratitude ,
Is equal to a dead body , even when he is alive.

“Parvathagre  nija sodaran thannodum,
Oorveeswaran  parithapena vazhunnu,
Ninneyum parthu  paranja samayavum,

  RAppaklum ariyathe vasikkunna,
Koppukal yethrayum nannu nanningane  ,
Agrajanaaya   sakraathmajane ppole ,
Nigrahicheedum  bhavaneyum nirnayam.”

On  the top of the mountain   along with his brother ,
The   god of the land   is living pathetically ,
Waiting  for you,  as the time agreed to  has come,
But you have   not  understood this,
Like a monkey attracted  by your wife,
Drinking alcohol , you have forgotten everything,
And are  living without  understanding the march of day and night,
And  you are   feeling that  everything is great .
Like your elder brother  who was son of Devendra,
It is definite     that   you also would be killed.

Anjana nandanan  thannude   vakku kettu,

Utharamai   avan thannodu chollinan,
“Sathyamathre  nee paranjathu nrnayam,
Ithram   chollum amathyan   undengilo,
Prutweesannu apathu  methukayillallo.”

Hearing the words of    the son of Anjana,
Sugreeva   who was greatly terrified  ,
Told   this   as an  answer   to him,
“Whatever you have told   is the truth,
When one has   a minister  who tells like this,
 The king will never get in to danger.”

SAthwaram yennude  aajnayodum  bhavan,
Pathu dikkingalekkum ayachidenam,
SAptha dweepa   sthithanmaaraya   vanara ,

You please   send messengers     to all ten directions,
Along with my order, that  the chiefs  of monkeys,
In the seven islands should come here immediately,
Send   ten thousand monkeys    with  ,
This message  from me immediately.

Paksathinnullil varanam kapi kulam,
Paksham kazhinju  varunnathu yennakilo,
Vadhyan  avan ithinnilloru samsayam,

Poyithu dhanamanadhi trupthathmanaa,
Maya manushya karyartham athi drutham.

The monkey chiefs should come within fifteen days,
And if they come   after   the end of fifteen days,
There is no doubt that   he would be killed,
When I tell the truth, it will never get changed.”
Telling like this to  Hanuman, Sugreeva ,
Went inside   his very  pretty house.
As per the   orders   of  his boss , the son,
Of wind God send   the   monkey soldiers,
To all the ten directions along with  ,
The orders communicated by the king.
They    went with the speed of wind,
To summon the chief of the monkeys,
With great satisfaction  , out of pay and respects  to them,
Speedily for doing  the work of the illusory man.

Rama  leading a life   separated from his wife,
On the top   of  the mountain   was  sorrowful,
And with great pain told   Lakshmana,
“ Poor one , alas , See mine   oh lad ,
Has    the lady  Sita died perhaps,
Or is she living  with great  pain in mind,
We   do not know  about the thing that  we decided,
Suppose they tell me     that   she is,
Living with mental satisfaction ,
He would become   very dear to me,
And suppose  they see she is living somewhere ,
I  will definitely    go and bring her here.”

If I see that   thief  who stole  the lady Janaki,
Due to anger in my mind , I  will kill him,
I would completely destroy  his clan,
There  is no doubt  about this definitely,
When I  would be able to see  you , who is,
Sorrowful as  ,  you are not able to see me, Oh darling,
Oh lady with a moon like face , because of parting with you,
Even the moon   is burning me like the sun,
Oh moon, Along with your cooling rays  , go there,
Slowly pat her  , caress  her  and then,
Come here to caress  me  , after all does she ,
Not belong to your clan.

Sugreeva appears to be greatly merciless ,
For has he  not forgotten me  who is sad?
When he got the kingdom without enemies,
He is a lover   who spends day and  night  ,
With pretty  ladies   along with his  desire for alcohol,
Oh Lakshmana, it is clear  that  he is ungrateful,
And   in spite of  his knowing  that  the spring has arrived,
He has  not come   as earlier promised, my friend,
It is definite   that  he leads  the list of ungrateful people ,
Because he has forgotten to search  for Sita,
And locate her  and tell  me about  it,
In spite  of the help rendered  by me earlier.

Remember  that   Sugreeva    leads  the bad people ,
Who forget those  people   who love them,
I will  kill that   monkey chief    along with,
Kishkinda and along with his relations,
There  is no doubt    that Sugreeva,
Has to go in the path of his elder   brother.

“Vadhyanayoru   Sugreevane sathwaram,
Hathwaa vida kolvan adhya   thavanthikam,
AAjnapayasu   maam, Yennu   paranjithu,
Prajnayoru  Sumithra thanayanum.

Addressing   Sri Rama    who told like this,
The very angry   son of Sumithra told,
“ Speedily give me    orders   to kill and bid  farewell,
 To Sugreeva  , who has  to be killed ,”
 So said  the very  wise   son of Sumithra.”

Taking bow  , arrows , quiver  and sword,
When his   angry brother  was about to go,
 Sri Rama   again    told him,
“I have one thing  more to tell you  ,
Sugreeva  is not one to be killed , my friend,
But you  come back, after  definitely scaring   him,
“Understand that   you would  soon,
Go to the  city of death like    Bali,”
If you tell like   this   to him,
And hear   what  he has to say ,
And come back very speedily,
And depending on that  , 
We would take   decision  ,
As to what should be done.

 

4.11 Lakshmanande  Purappadu

The starting   of Lakshmana.

Agrajajnayaa Soumithri sathwaram,

 Ajnaniyayulla   manushane ppole,
Dukha sukhadhikal  kai kondu varthichu,
Dushkrutha    santhi lokathinnudaakaan,

As per  the orders  of his elder brother, the son of Sumithra,
Started   walking towards the kingdom of Sugreeva,
And it appeared as if  that Kishkinda would be burnt,
 Along with   the entire  clan of  monkeys,
And that personification  of divine wisdom ,
Who  knows everything   and who is drowned in divine joy,
Walked like   an ignorant man  who tries to destroy his sorrow,
For the purpose   of world getting rid of bad ones  and turn peaceful.

Due to the effect of penance   done earlier by Dasaratha,
And for bringing  his     divine   power to the world,
And for  removing  the sorrow   that,
Occurred  to Brahma   and other devas and save them,
That divine among divines , that personification of joy,
The God who pervades  in the universe, thinking ,
About  how  ordinary people   who  desire due to illusion,
Who get their mind completely filled with ignorance
Would attain salvation , that  real  god Vishnu,
Ordered that  the divine story  , which  ,
Would    destroy  the illusion  filling the world,
Should be made famous , where  in,
Rama was  born in the    form of a  human being  ,
And lived as detailed  in Ramayana, which brings joy,
And that   Man of joy   who wanted that  this good story,
Would be made   famous   all over the world,
Assumed  in his mind, anger  ,  attachment , passion  ,  melody,
Sorrow and all  for completing the actions of the world,
And did all those   as per the needs of  time  and place,

VYomvadvyapthan, ananthan anamayan,
Divya muneeswaranmaar sanakadhikal  ,
SArvathmakane chilar  arinjeeduvoor.

It appears   that, that man without any properties , 
Is interested   in  properties   like Satwa  habit,
That divine one   is  who is a witness , has a  soul with divine joy,
One who is really powerful , one who is not clear , one who has no two,
One who is touched   by desires, one without any relation,
One who is spread like sky , one who is endless , one who does not have any stain,
Some sages   like Sanaka   understand that one whose soul is everywhere.

SAmyak  prabodham undamennu  chollunnu,
 Bhaktha  chithanu saarena  sanjayathe ,

It is tod that , to the devotees who have a   pure soul,
He will appear      as true form   and  ,
That giver of salvation, that one saluted by sages
And that honoured one   is born as  per   the wish of the devotees .

Chadi thudanginaar  angum , ingum drutham.

Lakshmana reached   the city of Kishkinda,
 And made a small twang    with his bow,
And the monkeys got scared  on seeing him,
And due to fear   they made a  sound “Kila,kila”,
All  the stones and trees flew above the walls,
And those who were  holding it due to surprise,
 Went to pee  and pooh  and started  jumping here  and there.

Markata  kootatheyokke   yodukkuvaan,

Villum  kuzhaye  kulachu   valichithu,
Bhallaka vrundavum   vallatheyayithu,

Thal kshanam   Angadhan odi vaneedinaan.

That son of Sumitra   who had   come ready,
To completely suppress  the  monkey herd,
Twanged his bow  fiercely  and pulled the  thread ,
And the group of monkeys were greatly perplexed,
And  as soon as  he knew that  Lakshmana has come,
Immediately Angadha   came  running there.

Chennu   Sugreevane vanshichu  chollinaan.

After  driving away those animals on tree branch,
Angadha went   alone and saluted Lakshmana,
And Lakshmana  with love hugged him and told,
“Please go lad,  meet   the brother of your father ,
The job that   you have done has erred greatly,
If you deceive one who fulfilled your wishes,
Then  the wealth  would get delayed,
My ferocious elder   brother   told me,
“I would  kill Sugreeva   in a second,
If   In Sugreeva’s mind    there is desire,
To go I n the same path   as his brother,
Then that would be realized”
Go and tell this to Sugreeva,
Hearing what was told , the son of Bali,
 With great fear  accumulating in his mind,
Went and saluted Sugreeva    and told.

“Kopena Lakshmanan  vannithaa  nilkkunnu,
Gopuradwatri  purathu bhagathu , ini,
Kaapeya  bhavam  kalanju  vandhikka chennu,
AApathu allaykil   undai varum drudam.”

“A very angry   Lakshmana has   come  and,
Standing  near the city gate , outside the city,
Now leave out your monkey nature  ,
And go and salute  him , otherwise ,
Great  danger   would definitely come.”
The  fear stuck Sugreeva ,hearing that told,
After   great thought   to Hanuman,
Who was his chief minister  and Angada,
“You both go together  and satisfy ,
Lakshmana  and bring  here ,
The  peaceful Lakshmana.”

Maruthiye  paranjevam ayachadha,
Tharayodarkathmajan  parnjeedinaan,

 Sarasya sara   vakhyangalal    , pinne nee,
Kooti kondingu   ponnu  yenneyum   vegena,
Katti  kalusha bhavatheyum theerkkanam.

After sending   Hanuman,
The son of the sun God   told  Thara,
“ Oh moon faced one  , you have to go urgently,
Oh Thara , Oh pretty one , go near   ,
Lakshmana    and reduce   his anger ,
Using intelligent   and  sweet  words ,
And after wards , quickly bring him here,
And showing me and also reduce his foul mood.

As soon she  heard these words   from  son of Sun god,
She entered   the intermediate   chamber  and stood there,
The son of Thara    and  Hanuman together,
Went and saluted   the brother of Rama,
After  enquiring about his welfare   with devotion,
Hanuman told   the son of Sumithra as  follows.

“Yenthu purathu  bhage ninnaruluvaan,
Anthapurathilaammarezhnnellam,
Raja dharangaleyum   Nagarabhayum,
Rajavu Sugreevaneyum   kanivodu,

“Why are  you standing out side ,
Please   come inside the  private chambers  and see,
Wives of kings and splendour of the town,
And   if  you see Sugreeva   and salute him
And talk to him with tenderness  everything will be achieved  soon.”
Saying this  holding Lakshmana’s  hands  , slowly  ,
And slowly  they  walked in to the city,
Seeing the gem studded  palaces  of the nobles ,
And after  seeing the splendour of the town,
Happily they entered  the intermediate chamber ,
And there  the lady who has a face like the moon,
Thara, beauty of the world , pretty one ,
Was standing equal to goddess Lakshmi,
And she humbly saluted Lakshmana,
And with a pleasing smile told him,
“Did  you not know that  this is your home?

“Bhakthanai , yethrayum   uthamanai  thava,
Bruthyanayoru  Kapeendranodingane ,
Kopamundaayaal   avanenthoru gathi?

Suppose you get  angry at  the king of monkeys.
Who is   your devotee as well as servant,
What  refuge   is there   for him?
Please remember  these  groups are fickle by nature,
And this monkey hero for a very long time,
Was suffering only sorrow  being pitiable.
And  due to your grace  , for the present time,
Since he is being protected , he is living,
Mixing it with pleasure and please do not make  it negative,
Oh treasure of mercy , Oh saviour  of devotees.

He had   sent ten thousand messengers to the ten directions,
To get   Monkeys living   in  places in various directions,
And you can see  the monkey nobles  ,
From all the directions  have come  and assembled here,
And so now   there is  definitely no problems,
All these monkey lords are     sufficiently   strong,
To control different   clans of Rakshasas,
Having seen your servant   Sugreeva   along with,
His sons, wives   and friends and,
Having saluted   the lotus like feet of Rama,
Please understand that  we would be able to do our work.

Though he  heard the words of Thara ,
Lakshmana  also went and saw Sugreeva ,
And he  was ashamed  and afraid ,
Became emotional  and  was with a  red eyes  full of fear,
And seeing  that monkey lord   , Lakshmana    with ,
Anger asked the  son of Sun God ,
“How did you forget  about  the great one of Raghu clan?”

Vruthrari  puthrane konna   saram,

Remember that  the arrow that killed  son of Devendra
Is still in the possession   of that  gentleman,
And the Lord told  , it looks like that ,
Sugreeva also wants to go in the same path  as his brother.”
Hearing these  words   of the son of Sumithra ,
As an answer   the  son of wind god told.

“ITham arul cheyvathinnenthu karanam,

Aamayamenniye vanara  Nayakan.”

“What is the reason for telling like this,
The monkey chief  is a great devotee of the great Purusha,
And when we   think as much as  the son of Sumithra,
And the god of monkeys will not break promises,
And he is awake   to the  needs   of Rama.
Without any delay   and  he  definitely  has not forgotten,
And Sir did not see   during the wonderful journey .
The  valorous monkeys   who   have come speedily ,
From  different   directions which are far away,
Our monkey chief , would without any trouble,
Achieve  the   work needed by Rama.”

During the time when Lakshmana was standing with increasing shame,
Hearing    the words  of Maruthi  Sugreeva  offered  ,
Water to drink and wash  and also offered worship,
To Lakshmana and saluted him by falling at   his feet.

Sri Rama Dasoham ha hantha, Raghava ,

I am   the slave  of Rama and   I have
Been protected   by a little of Rama’s mercy,
And I know   that  Rama  within half a second,
Can win over   all the three   worlds,
And   the service   that we   do to him,
Is  only obeying   his commands .

Hearing the words of son of Sun God  ,
Opening  his heart  told,
“Since you are   very great , please pardon,
The bad   words told by me when sad,
I told  these  out of great sorrow,
 Because   I  like   you   a lot,
Without delay  , let us  go to the forest ,
Because   Sri Rama is there  alone.

“Suppose we have   to start  , we will not wait “
Said Sugreeva  and got in to  the chariot,
Along with Lakshmana , and along with ,
Hanuman, Neela  , Angadha  and other  monkey chiefs,
And  also  along with  the army of monkeys,
With white fans , Chowrie   and  other decorative items,
Similar  looking like  Devendra’s army of devas ,
The monkey  chief   started  to see Rama with joy.”

Rama who was  living in a cave on a stone bench,
With a disturbed mind , wearing  cloths of wooden bark,
Black in colour ,  with crown made  of tufted hair , human in nature,
With broad   eyes travelling hither  and thither,
Peaceful  , With  Lotus  like face carrying a pretty  smile,
Suffering from parting of his pretty wife ,
Who is a dear one served by animals   and birds,
And  who has controlled  his senses,
Was seen from a distance  by the monkey chief,
And he got down from the chariot ,
Along with the   valorous  Lakshmana.

He saluted  along with joy and devotion  ,
By falling at  the lotus feet of Rama,
And  that God Rama  along with mercy,
Embraced the monkey hero and  enquired,
“Are   you fine ,Sir”,  and with  a feeling of unity,
Caught   and made  him sit and also,
Did the worship that  was due to a guest,
And son of Sun God was pleased with it.

Sugreeva    who  was ruled  by  great  devotion
At that  time informed   the lover of devotion,
“Please  with  interest   see    the ,
Members   of monkey clan who are here,
.All those   whom you see  are valorous monkeys,
 Who are  prepared  to work under  your feet.
They are  of various clans living in various  mountains,
They are   those living  near various rivers , islands and mountains,
And all of them are  having bodies similar  to mountains,
Oh king , all of them can assume any form they like,
They are  capable  of destroying the  bad valour,
Of  all the very proud   Rakshasas,
And since they are all born from devas ,
They would now suppress  the enemies of devas.

Sugreeva vakhyam idham kettu Raghavan,
Sugrrevane pidichu aalinganam  Cheythu,
SAnthosha  poornasru  nethrambujathodum,
Anthargatham arul cheythithu sadaram,
“Mal karya gouravam ningale  nirnayam,
Ulkambilorthu  karthavyam  kurushwa nee,
Janaki marganartham  niyogikaa nee,
Vanara veerare  nana disi sakhe,”

After hearing these   words of Sugreeva,
Rama embraced Sugreeva and with,
Lotus Eyes   full  of tears   of joy  told as follows,
“The importance   of my   work rests  on you,
Please think    and do take up the following action,
Please depute   for searching Sita ,
The monkey warriors in all  directions.”

Sri Rama vakyamrutham kettu  Vanara,
Veeranaychithu nalu dikkingalum,
“Noorayiram  kapi varanmaar  pokanam,

Angadan, Jambhavan , Maindan, Vividhanum,
THungan nalanum Sarabhan  sushenanum,
Vathathmajan  Sri Hanumanumai chennu,
Badha ozhinjudan kandu vannedanam.”

Hearing the nectar  like words of Rama,
He sent  Monkey warriors to all four sides,
“Let hundred thousand  monkey warriors,
Go in each direction along with  commanders,
And specially   to the southern direction ,
Many very  top people   should go,
Angadha, Jambhavan,  Mainda  , Vividha  ,
THunga  , Nala  , SArabha  , Sushena,
And Hanuman the son of   wind God,
And as soon as they do the job  ,
They should   all  come back.”

“Adbutha gathriye  neele thiranjingu ,
Muppathu  nalinakathu  vannedanam,
Ulpala pathrakshi  thanneyum kanathe  ,
Muppathu naal kazhinjingu varunnavan,
Prananthikam  dandam aasu  bhujikkanam,
Yenanga shekaran  thannane nirnauam.”

The lady with a wonderful form should be searched,
Within thirty days and they all should return back,
He who comes   after  thirty days  ,
Without seeing the  Lady with eyes like lotus leaf,
Would suffer   the death penalty ,
And this is an oath taken on Lord Shiva.

Thus  after entrusting  the work with four groups,
He  exhorted  them to go early ,
And saluted Raghava  and that great devotee ,
Sugreeva went   and sat near  him,
And at this time  when the monkeys were starting,
The son of wind God   saluted  Rama with devotion,
And at that time  That  wonderful hero Rama,
Called him separately  and told him.

“Manase  viswasam undavathinnu nee ,
Janaki kayil  kodutheedu ithu sakhe,
Rama namangithamam anguleeyakam,
Bhaminikkullil  vikalpam kalavaanai,
Yennude  karyathinorkkil  pramanam nee,
YEnniye  matharum illennu nirnayam.”

“For developing confidence   to her mind,
Oh friend give this   to Janaki and gave,
The ring  in which name of Rama is written.
For removing suspicion in her mind.
As far   as my job is  concerned ,
You are most important ,
And except you no one is there.”

Then the king told words for recognition also,
And told them  , please  go and  he bid them farewell,
The monkey collection left towards   the south,
Where    the great Rakshasa     who took  away,
Sita  who is the real   Goddess  Lakshmi,
Who had eyes like leaf of a lotus ,lived,
And  the son  of the son of enemy of Vruthra,
The son of Brahma, Neela,  and the disciple ,
Of the friend of one born out of lotus,
And the other  monkey commanders,
Speedily   searched   and searched ,
Over  different mountains, towns and villages,
And in forest countries     and  towns,
And while   they  were walking in this search,
Hanuman    and   other monkey  chiefs,
Entered the forests  of Vindhya mountains,
They saw a very cruel Rakshasa   hero,
Who was killing and eating  wild animals,
And they speedily approached him,
And thinking that   it is  the ten headed Ravana,
The great monkeys  killed that bad one , using.
Very severe  hits by the fist, and understanding,
In their mind that it is not Ravana , they speedily  went further.


4.14 Swayam prabha   gathi

The way  of Swayam Prabha.

Andhakaraunyamasu  pukkedinaar,
Antharaa dahavum   vardhichethavum,
Shuska  kandoshta  thalu pradesathodum,
Markata veerar   unangi varandoru,
Jihwayodum  nadakkunna nearthu,
Gahwaram  Thatha  kannayi  vidhi vasaal,

They entered then a very dark dense forest,
And when their   thirst increased,
And with their   dry neck,  throat and little toungue ,
While those  monkey heroes  were  walking,
With a dry toungue   by the  turn of fate ,
There   they saw    a cave .

Vallee  thruna guna channamayathil,
Illayalli  jalamennorthu  nilkkumbol,
Aardhra paksha  Krouncha  hamasadhi   pakshikal,
Oordhwa dese parannar, athil ninnudan,
Paksngalil   ninnu  veenu  jalakanam,
Markatanmaar   athu kandu  kalpichaar,

In that place covered by climbers and grass,
When they were  all standing  ,
Thinking  that  there  would not be any water
Some   swans and Krouncha birds with ,
Wet feathers   flew out of that  place,
And  out of their feathers  few drops,
Of water   fell on the monkeys and they told.

“Nalla  jalam athil undennu  nirnayam,
Yellavarum   nam ithil irangeduga”,
Yennu paranjoru  nearthu , Maruthi,
Munnil iranginaan , mathullavarkalum,
Pinnale  thannil irangi nadakkumbol,’
Kannu kananjithiruttu kondanneram,

Khinnaathayodum nadannu  nadannu poi,
Chennar atheeva  dhooram thathra  kandithu,
Munnil aammarathi dhanya  desa sthalam.

“It is definite that good water  is there in it,
Let all of us get in to it.”
And when all of them told like this ,
Hanuman go in to it  first  and other ones,
Got  in to it behind him  and when they were walking,
Since there  was so much darkness that they were not able to see,
They  all  walked together  holding hands ,
And with difficulty when they were walking,
And after they travelled a long distance ,
They saw in front of them a blessed place.

Swarnamayam  Manomohanam  Kanmavar,
Kanninumetham aananda karam   param,

Peeyusha   samya  Madhu drona samyutha,
Peya  bhakshyanna  sahithangalayulla ,
Vasthyangalundu pala tharam thathraiva ,
Vasthra rathnadhi paribhooshithangalai.

Golden, attractive to the mind, divinely joyful,
To the eyes  of those   who see  them,
There were   wells , gem studded lakes,
Which are   full of very sweet water,
Trees similar  to the wish giving tree of devas,
Which are bent due to the weight  of ripened fruits,
Drinks  which are like nectar  along with honey,
Along    with various tasty food  articles,
And there  , many palaces also were  there,
Which were  decorated with cloth and gems.

Maya mohanamaya  divya sthalam,
Manusha varjitham , deva gehopamam,

Yogini  nischala dhyana nirathayai ,
Pavaka  Jwala samabha  kalarnnu athi,
Pavanayaya  Maha bhagaye kandu.

That divine place  was  magical and pretty,
Bereft of any humans , similar to residence of devas,
And in that home , on  a golden gem studded seat,
They saw a lady   who was  wonderful,
Who was performing Yoga , dressed  in bark and with  a tufted hair,
And that  practitioner of Yoga  was immobile and busy in meditation,
And that  holy  very pure  great lady,
Was having the dazzle of  a pure fire .

Thalkshane santhosha poorna manassodu,
Bhakthiyum  bheethiyum  poondu vananginaar,

“Ningal   aarukuthennu parayanam,
Ingu vanneduvaan   moolavum chollanam,
Yengane  margam rinjavaru yennathum,
Yengine pokunnathennum parayanam.

Immediately   with a mind full of joy,
Along with devotion and fear they  saluted her,
That yogini seeing animals that live on a tree,
Became joyous  and   told them,
“Please tell me who you are?
Please tell me why you have come here?
How did you find out the way to this place?
And also tell me how you  will go from here?’’

Yeniva kettoru  Vayu thanayanum,

Hearing that  , the  son of wind god,
Saluted her nicely and told with humility,
“ Please  hear  the entire   story,
And I would tell truth   and only truth,
In the earth   there  is a city called  Ayodhya,
IN the Uthara  Kosala region  which is very good.
There lived a  king called  Dasaratha,
And he had   four sons  ,
Of them the eldest   is Rama ,
Who is equal to Lord Narayana himself,
And as per the orders of their father ,
He came to live In the forest   along ,
With his   brother   and his wife  Sita,
Who is the daughter of Janaka ,
And there  when they were living in a lonely place ,
The   evil minded   Rakshasa  called  Ten headed one,
Stole and went away with  his wife.

Rama as  well his younger brother Lakshmana,
Met   Sugreeva the   son of Sun God,
When they were wandering  in search of Rama’s wife,
And they signed a treaty   for each other’s benefit.
And for that   purpose  Rama killed  his elder brother,
Bali   and also gave the  kingdom to Sugreeva.
And   as  a return help  to Rama, the monkey chief Sugreeva,
Has  sent  monkeys in all   directions,
To search and find   out Sita,
To enquire in the southern direction,
Hundred thousand  monkeys were sent.
We who became thirsty  , searching for water ,
Without knowing   entered this   cave,
As per the will of  the great god.
To be able to see you lady is our great luck,
And we do not know    who you are,
And oh holy one , please tell us staraight about it.

Yogini thanum  athu kettu  avarodu,
Vegena  mandasmitham  poondu chollinaal,
“Pakwa   phala moola jalangal okkave  ,

Hearing that  the Yogini told them,
Speedily     with a great   smile,
“Eat the ripened fruits   and roots ,
Get satisfied by  drinking the nectar  ,
And come   with a clear  head to me,
And then I will  tell you about my history.”
And hearing that   they   ate well,
The fruits and roots   and drank   honey  ,
And with a clear mind , they went near the lady,
And stood   there   saluting   her
And that   Yogini with   a pretty smile,
Started   telling her story to Hanuman.

“Viswa  vimohana  roopiniyakiya  ,

Hema the daughter of Viswa Karma   was ,
A prettiest of the universe  by her   dance,
Pleased Lord Shiva  and due to that  that god,
Gave her this divine   city and she ,
Lived like  a celebration here   for ten crore  divine years,
And I am her friend   called  Swayam Prabha,
And I am  the daughter  of a Gandarwa,
A devotee of Vishnu , who always sought  for salvation.

Brahma lokam pravesichithu  Hemayum,
Nirmala gathriyam  yennodu chollinaal,

Sri Rama  pathniye   kattu koolum  , athi,
Krooranayidum  Dasanan akkalam.

After   some time Hema entered  the world of Brahma,
And she told me who was  having a  pure body,
You keep always doing meditation here ,
For not many animals   come over here.
In the Tretha  Yuga  Narayana   who is lord Vishnu,
Would be born as   the son of  Dasaratha ,
For   lessening  the burden of earth ,
And when that  king is travelling,
The wife  of Rama    would be stolen by  ,
The very cruel  Ravana  , at that time.

Janaki devi anveshanathinnai ,
Vanaranmaar   varum nin guha  mandire,

Sri Rama devane kandu  vananguka,
Narayana swami thanne   Raghuthaman,
Bhakthyaa  parane sthuthichaal   varum thava ,
Mukthi padam    yogi gamyam sanathanam.,

 For searching  of that  lady Janaki,
Monkeys will come   inside this cave,
You   treat them hospitably with love,
And also help those   monkeys  and then,
You go and salute  God Rama  ,
For that Lord of Raghu clan is himself  Narayana,
 And if you  pray to that divine one  with devotion,
 You would get salvation, which is primeval  and got by yogis .

AAkayyal jnan ini  Sri Rama devane ,

Chithram vichithram  vichithram yennorthavar ,
Padathiyude   nadannu thudanginaar.

So now I am speedily going  to see God Rama,
And before that I have to show  you the proper way,
And so all of you please  close   your eyes,
And with a clear mind , all  of them closed their eyes,
And immediately    they all reached  to the forest ,
From  where they   had entered the cave, Wonder of wonders  ,
They thought  and started walking by the path.

 

4.15 Swayam Prabha  Sthuthi

The prayer  of Swayam Prabha

Yoginiyum  guha vasam upekshichu,

Nathwaa muhur muhur   sthuthwaa  bahu vidham.

The Yogini  left off  living   in the cave ,
And very fast reached  in front of God of Yoga,
Who was being served  by Lakshmana and Sugreeva,
And seeing the Lord of Lakshmi  and after  going round him,
With great devotion , with a breaking voice and  horripilation,
Again and again   saluted him and offered  various types of prayers.

“Dasi thavaham  Raghu pathe  , Rajendra,

I am your slave , Oh Lord of Raghu clan,  Oh great king,
Oh Vasudeva  , Oh Lord  , Oh Rama , Oh treasure of mercy,
I have come   here   to see  you,
Oh Lord who does not have an equal , Oh  Lord of Lakshmi  ,
I did penance   for several thousands of years,
By meditating  on you  for seeing you ,
The effect of my penance bore fruit today, Oh treasure of penance.

I salute  you who is primeval,
It is definite that  nobody can  understand you,
Though you stay  in and out   of every being,
You are  divine   and are  not visible  to any one,
For   you are  living inside  the screen of illusion,
You are pervaded with illusion  and have a human form,
And  you are  one  who cannot be understood by the ignorant,
For you   are   the form of   great wisdom  .

You cannot be seen by those  who are afraid of birth and death,
You show   the good way  , you show   the way   of Vedantha,
Those men who suffer   due   to the attachment  ,
To son, wife  , friend, wealth  never  chant your name  Rama, Rama,
Oh God  make me chant your name “Rama, Rama”

The soul of Veda  , The god who can have any desired form ,

Due to your illusion  the ordinary people    see you.
Who has a  divine form     in various other forms,
You who do not have  even little birth or duty ,
Who is the pure  entity due  to circumstances,
Are born  as a deva, animal or man,,
Carry out the duty of that  form,
Who can understand  your great deeds  of illusion,
Oh God without defects  , treasure of mercy  ,  oh Lord.

You are  the one born in this  earth with peculiar ,
Form and   also doing    duties,
Some people say that  this  is for  the sake ,
Of  your devotes so that they can hear ,
Daily your nectar  like stories and get benefit,
Some other people are saying that it ,
Is because of the great penance  ,
Which was   done   by the  king of Kosala,
Some   say it is due to great prayer  of Kousalya,
Some say  it is for  the sake  of Sita’s luck,
Some say  that   it is due to the request  of Lord Brahma,
For destroying the clans  of the bad Rakshasas,
That you   were   born as  a human being ,
Definitely   in this    world , some say  ,
That you were   born as a son to the king,
For reducing    the burden of this earth,
But   the  holy   sages say   that ,
You are  born  to protect    the Dharma,
And to  destroy   Adharma , in the clan,
Of Lord Sun  and also  to kill  all the enemies  of devas ,
And   to protect   the devas and  I do,
Not know    which of these  is correct.

He who tells  your story  and
He   who hears it with respect ,
Definitely  will cross the sea of birth and death,
And he would be able to see  your  lotus feet,
Since my nature is tied up by  your  great illusion,
In what   way will I be able   to understand ,
Your divine   form , and what words,
Should   I use   to pray you?

Black, pretty holding a bow and arrow  ,
Is Rama  who is served by his brother ,
Is served   by Sugreeva   and other monkey chiefs,
Is standing before me  and I salute him now
“ Salutations to Rama     who is Rama Bhadra”,
Telling like this  Swayam prabha fell,
At his feet telling auspicious  greetings.
Rama   who can grant salvation was pleased,
And told  “ I have   become happy  due to your devotion,
Please tell   what you desire   in  your mind.”
And hearing    this    she told,
“Today I have realized  all my desires.”

 Wherever  I live  and whatever  period  I live,
My devotion to you should  be firm,
And I should have good relations always,
With  all those who are  devoted to your feet,
And if by chance  I happen to be  in the company of vulgar people,
I should chant “Rama, Rama” , in my mind ,
And my mind should get pleased with feet  of Rama.

Let my mind be occupied  always  with ,
Raghava   along with Sita and son of Sumithra,
Wearing yellow cloth  , holding bow and arrows,
Wearing pretty  crown, bangles  , waist belt  ,
Garland  , gem studded fish like ear stud,
Anklet and other ornaments of gold,
Who has  a shining form and ,
I do not want     any other boon,
And also let me not fall in bad company.

Hearing that  , that God Rama  with  a pretty smile,
Told her, oh great lady, let that   happen to you,
Lady , you please go to Badri asram ,
And there daily meditate  on me ,
Leave out this body made of five elements,
And  you will definitely join with God ,
And that will bring to an end  your sorrow of birth and death,”
Hearing these nectar like words   of Rama ,
She immediately   went to Badari asram,
And when she meditated there on god Rama,
She    joined   the perennial  feet of Narayana


4.16 Angadadadhikalude  Samsayam

The doubt  of Angadha   and others.

Markata sanchayam  deviye yaranju ,
Vruksha shandeshu vasikkum  dasanthare  m,
Yethra divasam  kazhinjithennum  Dara-
Puthriye   yengume kandu kittaigayum  ,
Chinthichu khedichu   Tara suthan   nija,
Bandukkalayullavorodu chollinaan.

When that  group of monkeys were,
Living in dense tree forest  in search of Sita,
Though many days had   been past,
Since they  were not able to find the princess,
Angadha   after  serious thought   and sorrow,
Told to those   who were  his friends.

“Patalam  ulpookuzhannu nadannu naam,
Yethum arinjeela vasaram poyathum,
Masam atheethamai  vannithu nirnayam,
Bhoosuthaye  kandarijathumilla naam,
Raja niyoigam anushtiyadhe Vrutha,
Raja dhanikku  naam chellukil  annu than,
Nigrahicheedum athinila   samsayam,
Sugreeva sasanam nisophalamai varaa.

“Since we went down inside  the  patala,
We did not realize how many days went by,
And it  is definite that  the month is approaching fast,
And so far    we have not been able to find  Sita,
And suppose   without  following the orders of the king.
 We return   to the palace, then we ,
Would be killed,  without any doubt.
For orders  of Sugreeva should not go waste.

Pnne visheshichu  sathru  thanayanam,
Yenne  vadhikkum  athinilloranatharam,

Prapichu vazhunna   vanara pungavan,
Papi   durathmanu yenthu aruthathathum,
Thal parswa dese gamikkunnathilla jnan,
Ippol ivide marikkunnatheyullu.

Then  without any doubt  , he would kill me,
Specially   because  I am the son of his enemy.
What  special affection he has  in me.
And I was initially  saved  by Rama,
And when I return without doing  Rama’s work,
He also   will  not save   my soul.
That  lord of monkeys   has without shame,
Living with  his brother’s  wife ,
Who is equivalent to  his own mother,
And so I would not go anywhere near him,
 And now I will die in this place.

“Valla prakaravum  ningal poi kolga”   yennu,

Somehow all of you go”  he said,
And when he was crying   the other monkeys  ,
Who had equal sorrow , wiped their tears
And immediately told in a friendly manner,
“ NO body should become as sad as you,
Please know that we are there to protect you,
We will go in to that  cave that we visited today,
 And happily let all of us   live there  for long,
For  that   is a town blessed    with all types of luck,
Which is a divine city equal to city of devas,
And friend, there is no fear from anybody there,
Son of Thara  , we would go there  without any delay.”

Hearing the words   of the chiefs   of monkeys  ,
To Angadha , the diplomat , one who is an expert,
In methodology   and the   son of wind god,
Hugged   Angadha  and   told him,
“What a bad thought , this is not suitable ,
All of you please  do not think of the black side,
You   are  most dear to Rama, and he  always,
Thinks you in his mind as   , my son of Thara,
 And there  is great growing affection for  you in his mind,
And this   is not known to anyone except me,
And you are  dearer than Lakshmana   to him,
And your ability    is very much in his mind.”

There   is no change ever in love  ,
Would the colour of the gold change,
Oh friend , therefore do not have at any time,
 Fear  towards  Rama , and the king  of monkeys , Sugreeva,
Is also a very good soul who does not  have enmity  towards any one,
And so you should not have sorrow in your mind,
Oh  son of the son of Devendra  , please hear.

I am also   interested  greatly in your welfare ,
Do not get influenced   by the words of ignorant people,
Tell me , did not the monkey group tell you,
That to avoid problems, you have to live in a cave ,
Remember  that   there is nothing  in the three worlds,
That cannot  be broken by the arrow   of Rama,
And so hearing the advice of  ignorant people  ,
You should not get  in to wrong results .

When dangers   come near us,
The  words of good people does not appear  to shine.
 The belief    in the bad people  ,
The enmity towards   good people,
The hatred of devas, Brahmins  , and duty our clan,
 The enmity that  we keep on our relatives ,
Would increase and increase  and would  lead  to destruction of the clan,
And  the responsibility  would come  on us.

I will tell you  about   the  history,
Which is kept hidden and is a  very great  secret,
Remember   that  Lord Rama  is not a human being,
And is Lord Narayana   the divine soul  spread all over the world,
The  Goddess  of illusion   is the real wife of lord Vishnu  .
The one   who  attracts   all the world  and is Sita,
Lakshmana   is  the serpent god   who carries  ,
The world  on his head and is Adhi sesha ,
Who has a universal form  and these,
Were born in their human form in Ayodhya.

“Raksho  ganathe yodukki  Jagathraya ,

For destroying   the Rakshasas   and to ,
Protect  all the three worlds , once Lord Brahma,
Prayed and hence  he was born as  ,
A son of a king   in the clan of the Sun God,
That  one served by Lord shiva  , Janardhana  , Madhava ,
The liver of Vaikunta  , Mukunda, the divine  merciful one,
Took an incarnation as a human being,
And we are the servants   to help and serve him,
And have taken the form of monkeys  due to His order,
And have taken birth  in this world,
Once we did great penance to the God,
And saw and saluted and got the grace  of Madhava,
And he gave   us the post   of his assistants 
For us to serve him now    and go  and live in Vaikunta,
And so understand that nothing needs to be delayed.

Hanuman told several  auspicious ,
Words   to Angadha  like  this,
And consoled him and they immediately ,
Entered the  Vindhya  mountains ,
In search of Sita   very speedily,
They reached  the banks of the southern sea,
Which is very pretty   and  joyfully ,
Reached   the  Mahendra  mountains.

“Yenthini cheyvathu   santhatham orkka Naam.”

Difficult to cross, very deep , fearsome,
Difficult to reach  for all the monkey group,
And the son of the son of Indra    and all others,
Being afraid , became sad  and sat there ,
And started  thinking and thinking  and murmured  ,
To each other ”What can be done  by us now, let us think”

After going to the cave , becoming  very nervous ,
And getting afraid  , one month passed  by,
We  were not been able to see   Sita ,
WE were also not been able to ,
Find out the ten headed  one any where ,
Sugreeva   is a king who gives  severe ,
Punishment  and he would surely kill us,
Compared  to being killed  by angry Sugreeva,
Dying   by  ritual fast   daily  ,is a way to salvation.”
Deciding like this  the monkey group,
Spread  Durba grass  and all of them ,
Laid themselves  on it  thinking,
That this is what   has been decided by god.

4.17 Sampathi  Vakyam

Words of SAmpathi

Appol Mahenrachalendra  guhantharaal,
Grudham  purathu pathukke purapettu,
Vrudhanayulloru  grudhra  pravaranum,

Mumbil mumbil  prana hani varunnathu ,
SAmpreethi poondu  bhakshikkam anu dinam.

At that time   from a cave in Mahendra mountain,
One hawk   slowly started to go outside,
And that very old   chief of hawks,
With a   shape similar  to the  great mountain,
Saw the monkeys who were lying down,
And   happily told  that chief of the clan of hawks,
“To me who does not have wings ,
God  has given me lot of food and this indeed is lucky,
I would  eat  the one who dies earlier and the next one and so on,
And happily get contended  myself.”

Grudha vakyam  kettu Markatougham pari-
Thrastharai anyonyam aasu   cholledinaar,
“ADreewndra   thulyanayoru    grudhradhipan,

Hearing the words of the Hawk  , the monkeys,
Became scared and told among themselves.
“This hawk king who is like  a mountain,
Would immediately  eat all of  us,
We  are   going die   for  no purpose,
We do not think that  any of us can prevent this,
We   were   not able to do anything useful,
The only reason  appears  to be  our fate,
We were not able to do any job of Rama,
And  we were not able to  help our master also,
We must be   very great sinners ,
To be without any use  being killed  by him.”

“Nirmalanaya  Dharmathma  Jatayu thaan,

Cherumarayithu Rama Padambuje ,
Pakshi yennakilum  moksham labhichithu,
Paksheendra  vahananugraham  vismayam.”

“The greatness  of  the very pure soul of Dharma ,  Jatayu  ,
Cannot   be described and told by us,
To describe  him  is  difficult , if we ,
See his blessings, who else can get them?
He died for   the sake   of Rama’s work,
And easily managed to merge with lotus feet of Rama,
And though  he is a bird , he got salvation,
The blessing of he who rides the king of birds is wonderful.”

Vanara BHashitham kettu  sampathiyum,
Manasanandam   kalarnnuu  chodhichithu,
“Karna  peeyusha  samaanamaam vakkugal,
Chonnatharinnu  Jatayuvenningine ,
Ningal aarenthu  paraynnithanyonyam,
Ingu varuvin  bhayappedaika yethume  .”

Sampathi hearing the   words  of monkeys,
Asked  them  with a mind filled  with joy,
“Who has told   these nectar to the ear ,
Like words  mentioning name of Jatayu ,
Who are  you all, what are  you talking with each other ,
Come near me   and do not be afraid of me.”

The grand son of Devendra   heard that with love,
And went before     Sampathi  and prayed,
The lotus like feet  of the lotus eyed one,
And with   great happiness  told,
“The  son of  Dasaratha  belonging to the clan of the sun,
The Lord Vishnu , Narayana   , the lotus eyed  Rama,
Along with   his brother  Lakshmana ,
And  Janaki who was   really Lakshmi,
Went inside forest  for meditation  ,
As per  the  order  of his father.

The   ten faced  one who is a very bad one,
Stole     Sita  and parting  her from  Lakshmana,
And Rama   , when the daughter of earth,
Appealed for help, and then immediately ,
Jatayu stopped    and fought with that Rakshasa,
And troubled by  that  chief of birds   ,
That Rakshasa  using the  real sword called Chandrahasa,
Cut off his wings  and   at that time  ,
The king of birds fell down on the floor.

That daughter  of earth  blessed him ,
That he would die only after  seeing Rama,
And then informing him  and because  of her grace ,
That king of the birds met Rama   and told all news,
And the lucky one got salvation at Rama’s feet.

Rama who belonged   the clan of Sun God,
Signed a treaty with   son of Sun god ,
With fire as witness  and killed  Bali,
And gave  the kingdom to Sugreeva,
And Sugreeva   the king of all monkeys ,
Has send hundred thousand monkeys ,
On all four directions  for  searching ,
And finding out Lady Janaki.

 We came towards   the southern side,
And  we were not able to see  the Rakshasa  anywhere,
If we   do not return by   thirty days,
The monkey  Lord will kill us instantly,
Entering below the earth and searching  ,
We are not able to know  the time   and hence,
We decided that we would die lying on Durba grass,
And by accident we   found you now,
Suppose   you have known any  news of Sita,
Please  tell us about that , and I have told you,
Our true    story which is like this , please know,”

Hearing the words of son of Thara  , that Sampathi,
With increasing  sorrow   told him,
“Jatayu  is my dear brother , I  have,
Parted with him  long ,long ago,
I have not heard  any news of ,
My brother  for  several thousand  years ,
Please   carry me and take me near water ,
So that  I can perform the after death rites for him,
And please  help  me perform those  rites,
And I would do you help by  words.”

Then those monkeys carried him   and,
Kept  him  near the shore of the sea with respect ,
And He took bath in that  water , offered salutations,
To his  dear  younger brother   with love  ,
And those  good  monkey crowd ,
Took him and kept  him in original place  ,
And that  comfortable Sampathi ,
Started   telling them the news of Sita.

“Thungamayidum  trikutachalopari,
Lanka puriyundu   madhye samudramai,

Nakthanjari jana madhye  vasikkunnu.

In the tall  three  mountain top ,
The city of Lanka exists  and in the middle is the sea,
There in the   great forest of Asoka trees ,
Lady Sita is living in the middle  of Rakshasis.
There is a distance  of hundred  yojana to that place ,
And since   I am a hawk , I am able to see it,
He who has    the ability   to  cross it,
Would  definitely bring back the daughter of earth.

“Sodarane  konna dushtane  kollanam,
Yethoru jathiyum  pakshavum illa may,
Yathnena  ningal kadakkanam aasu poi,
Rathnakaram   pinne vannu  Raghuthaman,
Ravanan thanneyum   nigrahikkum kshanaal .
Evam   ithinnu vazhi   yennu nirnayam.”

I should kill him who has killed my brother,
But Since I do not have wings , there is no way to do it,
By effort   you would be able to cross the sea ,
And later  the best  among the Raghu  clan,
Would kill Ravana   within a second  ,
And this is the only way to this , it is definite.”

Thammil anuyonyam   paranju thudanginaar.

The sea is hundred  yojana broad,
And with effort we have to get in to the city of Lanka,
And there   see  Sita   and tell her  ,
And immediately jump back ,
Has to be done, let us discuss,”
They started  discussing  this among themselves.

SAmpaathi  thannude Poorva vruthanthangal,
Anbodu  vanaranmaarodu  chollinaan,
“Jnanum Jatayuvaam brathavai puraa,

Sampathi then told   the earlier story of his life  ,
To the   monkeys  with love  ,
“Me and Jatayu   were  brothers  ,
Due to competitive mentality  of  our prowess,
Wanting  to test  our  speed and strength,
We    flew with great speed   to the top,
And reached   the place of the sun,
And suffered  due to the rays   of the sun,
And immediately my younger brother caught  fire,
And to save him under my wings , I covered him,
And made   him go behind me .
And my wings got lit  and I fell on the earth,
And he fell   along with his two wings,
And it is true that  the only protection of a bird is its wings.

Pandu  kandullor arrive nimithamai.

I feel  at the top of the Vindhya mountains,
And I lay there blind for three  days,
Due to the little life , when I woke up,
I saw that  both my wings were burnt.
Greatly sacred , without knowing the places,
With a completely confused mind, dragging myself,
I reached   the  holy hermitage   of,
A saint who use to do meditation at night,
Due to the  holy deeds  done earlier.
The great sage saw me  and told me ,
Due  to recognizing me  from earlier meeting.

“Yenthu Sampathe , viroopanai  vannathu ,

“sannamai  vannu chirakum Dhayanidhe,
Jeevanthe darikkendum  upayam innevam,
Yennu yennodu  cholli tharename.

“Why Sampathi  , why have you come disfigured,
What is the reason for it, who is responsible for it?
Why this burning    to  you  , who is  very strong,
Please   tell me “ and hearing that ,
I told all my story   completely without ,
Leaving a single incident and with folded hands asked him,
“Oh treasure of mercy, my wings have been burnt,
Please tell me  any method   to eke out my life ,
Be pleased   to tell me this.”

Yennathu kettu  chirichu Mahamuni,

Mohad   aham krutha karmangal   cheyyunnu.

Hearing that , that great sage laughed,
And later  mercifully   he told,
“I will tell you the truth as it is,
You carry it out in a way you can,
Understand that  this sorrow is due to  the body,
When we  think of the body , it would be affected  by Karma,
Due to the  feeling of me inside the body,
And due to desire we do the  acts done  by us.”

From the  illusion  called  negative wisdom
Is born the thing that  is called pride(egoism?),
And it exists  along with the shadow  of existence.
Like   a red hot  piece   of  burning iron,
By   merging itself with the body,
It exists as  the body with  action,
And we would start thinking that “I am the body”,
And have a  feeling that I am   responsible for all actions,
Thinking like this , every living thing,
Does duties   and gets  tied up by the fruits from it,
Deceiving one self  and gets involved in  ,
Birth , death , pleasure in life , sorrows ,
And completely  forgets anything about  the divine soul.

Going   up or going down  but startled,
The one   who searches  for his own good deeds and sins,
“I did lots of good  deeds  which merit rewards ,
AS per the money I have  , I did sacrifices   and gave charities ,
And I want   to go to heaven  and live  there happily,
He thinks   and decides on this course ,
But  death comes to him  when he is living happily,
And  his head   will fall down on   earth,

“When the good deeds  are  completely  used up,
He falls on the moon and from there  along with snow,
He falls on the earth and becomes different grains,
And lives  in that form for some time,
And then  the grains are eaten by man,
Which would form in to four types   of  food ,
And one of them would become the seed,
And would enter   the vagina of woman.”

That seed   would mix with the blood of Vagina ,
Any by itself  would be coated  with an outer covering,
Within a day  it would mix and would become a foetus,
And after that  slowly   within five nights  ,
It takes a form of  a bubble  and with five days
It would  slowly get  flesh  and muscles,
And in another  fortnight  again slowly,
It would have a body where  blood is circulated,
And   it would also get   the organs  ,
Progressively in another  twenty five days  ,
And in another three  months joints would  be formed,
And get every organ  in a   progressive manner,
And the magic of fingers  would happen  in the fourth month.

The teeth, nails   and private   organs and also,
The nose , ear   and the eyes  would form in fifth month,
In the sixth month, with great  deal of accuracy,
The hole of the ear  would   be formed,’
In the seventh month the penis , vagina,
Belly button, anus hole  would be formed,
And in the   eighth month immediately ,
The hair on the head and body  would,
Be formed  and the body would become strong.

In the ninth month the foetus will grow daily,
And the   hand and feet   will develop movements,
From the fifth month  consciousness  will develop,
And increase day by day by the food that  ,
Goes in to it  through the little hole,
At the joining of  umbilical chord,
And   the foetus  inside the womb would grow,
And death will not come to it by strength of Karma.

Poorva janmangalum  kamangalum nijam,

The previous birth and the passions are true,
And thinking and thinking  of these ,
And suffering due to the heat  of the fire  in the stomach,
The  foetus Started    thinking the reasons for that.

“Pathu noorayiram  yonikalil  ,

We suffered our karma  being born in million  vaginas,
And  many billions of billions  relationships,
With son , wife  , wealth and relations have been passed,
Due to  the attachment  to looking after  the family,
I earned   money    by very many unjust means,
And also never  ever thought  of Lord Vishnu,
Had I never  chanted  even once “Krishna, Krishna”  ,
And my suffering  is because  of the result of that ,
Lying in this  place   at this time.
Once I get   out  from this womb  with strength ,
I would not do any bad actions,
And would do only  all good actions,
And I would   not chant at any time ,
Any other   name except that of Narayana.

Jathanaam yoni nirandrena  peedanvitham.

Like this that  living thing thought,
And  started   praying God   with devotion,
And   after   ten months , due to pressure of fate ,
With great sorrow , it takes birth and falls down on earth,
Through   the vagina  by the force of the wind of birth with great pain.

Though you  are being looked after by mother and father ,
There is no option for suffering the sorrow of childhood,
Similar is the  pain in youth   and that in old age  ,
Thinking about  it all these  are difficult to tolerate,
Why did I describe   in detail all these ,
Which have   been initiated  by your own self
Due to the  feeling, “I am body” which is a great illusion,
The pleasure   and sorrow   come in this world,
For the sorrow  of living in the  womb, and the  ,
Birth and death  of all beings, the root is the body.

Much above this micro and macro body,
Is   the divine soul   and so,
Leave out me and mine in body and others,
And wipe out attachment and live as the expert of divine,
Pure , always peaceful , non decaying  to the beings,
Wise , divine Brhamam, joyful with no two to it,
Truth , primeval , perennial  and without any comparison,
Only philosophy , divine , without characters,  undivided ,
Pervaded  with divinity, present in all souls and God,
Achyutha, pervading all over universe and permanent,
And that  which  frees  you from illusion,  and at the time,
When you know this , the ignorance
Due  to illusion will disappear to all
And  so live in this world   suiting yourself   to the ,
Debt load  of Karma  and live truthfully  , my friend.

I will also tell you one more advice ,
Do not have even little   sorrow in your mind.
In the Tretha yuga  Lord Vishnu   would ,
Be born in earth as   the  son of Dasaratha,
For  killing all Rakshasa    and with love,
To give salvation to his devotees,
And when he is living   in Dandaka forest ,
The angry ten  faced   Ravana ,
Would come  when,  the learned  Rama  and Lakshmanawere  away,
And would steal Sita   who was born out of a lotus due to a danger  to him.

Appol ninakku pakshangal navangalai,
Udbhavichedum  athinilla   samsayam.

When  that lotus   eyed one  is kept in Lanka,
A group of monkeys   deputed by the king of monkeys,
Searching for  her  would come  to the banks of the southern sea,
And there these monkeys    will meet you,
Due to some  reason or other  without any doubt,
And then  you please tell them ,
The place where   she is kept and by mercy,
You would develop  new wings at that time,
And there  is   no doubt   about  this.

That  sage who was earlier  one who makes night,
Told and made me understand these.
Please  see  that new wings have grown up,
What a great wonder , good and very good,
The words   of great  and pure sages,
Would always turn to be true,
If we think about the greatness of,
The nectar like   story of Rama,
Nobody would understand it fully.

Rama namamruthathinnu samanamai,
Mamake manase mathu thonnelaho,

I am not able  to think  in my mind about anything,
Comparable   to the nectar   like name   of Rama,
Good things should again and again happen to you,
Let you be able to find  the lady of auspicious build,
If you   put in great efforts,  even today,
 You will be   able to cross the sea without  any doubt.
By meditating on the name  of Rama , all people ,
Cross   the ocean of birth  and death in domestic life,
For you who are   going in search of the wife of Rama,
Since you are  devotees of Rama , there would ,
Never be any  type of  problem or pain to   cross the sea.”
Saying this   the  very huge   Sampathi ,
Flew   and disappeared   in the sky.

4.18 Samudhra langana chintha

Thought of crossing the   sea.

Later the chiefs of monkeys  with great eagerness,
Started   talking with each other ,
The collection of monkeys  saw in front of them the sea
Which  was Terrible , fearful , full of groups of crocodiles,
And said, “How can we  cross this sea  for,
We are not even able to see  the other shore,
Why should we   think  and worry   about  an impossible,
Things and then die  ,  Oh monkey friends.”

SAkra thanayathanujanaam angadhanSugrreva, Rama

Angadha the son of the son of DEvendra,
Told the monkey chiefs,
“All of you  are  heroes with great speed and strength,
And  have lot of strength  and valour,
One  among you  should come and tell me,
“I am capable  for doing  this job,
And can  firmly  save the lives  of all of us,
And  I am also capable of removing the  great sorrow,
Of Sugreeva, Rama and Lakshmana,
And also  protecting them all.”

Hearing  what Angadha told them,
All of them were seeing each other,
And did not speak out,then Angadha,
Again told  the monkeys,,
“Estimate  your strength in your mind,
And tell with preparation  about yourselves.”

I can jump a distance  of ten yojanas,
I can jump twenty yojanas, one monkey told ,
Another told I can jump thirty  yojanas,
And another  said I can manage  forty,
Fifty, sixty, seventy ,another one said,
I can jump eighty, without pain,
I can jump ninety but  the sea,
Is  one hundred  yojanas broad.

Among all the people  whom we see here,
No one can cross  this sea, definitely, oh monkey heros,
Once  upon a time  Lord Trivikrama hiding his  form measured,
All the  three  worlds   by his three steps,
And as a young one  then, I played a big drum ,
And went  round him twenty one  times,
And today being caught  in the grasp of old age,
I do not have the speed  to cross this salt ocean,
I went round  twenty one times Lord Vishnu,
Within  ten seconds and when we  think about it,
The sports  of god  who has  the form of time,
Is very greatly  wonderful.

When the son  of Lord  Brahma  told like this,
The grand son of Devendra said,
“ I can definitely  jump to there,
But It would be difficult for me  to jump back.
May be all other people do not have ability to do it.”
Even if you have  the capability  to do this,
Your assistants will not allow  you to do it,
And that  would mean one  of them has the capability,
And  if  none of them have  the ability,
Then it would be better for us to ,
Observe fast as a penance  and die,”

THareyan yevam paranjor  anantharam,

“Yenthu jagal prana nandanan ingane,

After son of Thara told like this,
The son of Brahma  told as follows,
“Why is it   the son of wind God  is silent,
Thinking and thinking and not telling anything,
 Should he sit like this  without any zest?
I am not finding any  one except  you,
For  you were  once in the womb of Parvathi,
And  are you not  the seed of Lord Parameswara.

PInne vathathmajan aakayum undavan,
Thannodu thulyan bala vegam orkkilo,
Kesariye konnu thapam kalanjoru,
Kesariyagiya vanara nadannu,
Puthranai    anjana pettulavayoru,
SAthwa guna pradhaanan  bhaavan kevalam,
Anjana garbhachythanai  avaniyil,
Anjasaa jathanai veena neram  bhavan,
Anjooru  yojana melppottu chadiyathum,
Jnan arinjirikkunnathu manase.

Later  you became  the son of wind god,
And  you are  equal  in speed and strength to him,
And later  you were born    as son to,
Anjana   and Kesari , the monkey chief,
Who killed  an elephant  to get out of pain.
You have more  of pious character ,
And   I know that as soon as Anjana gave birth to you ,
You jumped  five  hundred yojanas  to the top.

Chanda kiranan   udichu pongum neram ,
Mandalam   thanne  thudu thde kandu nee ,
Pakwam yennorthu  bhakshippan adukkayaal,
SAkrande vajram yethu pathichathum ,
Dukhichu maruthan  ninneym kondu poi,
Pukkithu patalam appol  TRimuthikal,
Mupathu mukkoti   vanavar thammodum ,
Ulpala  sambhava  puthra   vargathodum,
Prathyakshmai   vannu anugrahicheedinaar,
Mruthyu varaa loka nasam varumbozhum,
Kalpantha kalathumilla mruthiyennu,
Kalpichannilakkam  varaa nirnayam,
Aamnaa  sarartha moorthikal   chollinaar ,
Namnaa  Hanuman ivanennu   saadaram.

At the time   when the Son god was rising ,
Seeing the entire  area as  extremely red,
Thinking that  it is ripe, when you were ,
Approaching  to eat it, you fell,
Due to the   hit of   Vajrayudha  of Indra,
And then the sad wind god took you,
And hid himself  in the  Patala ,
And then the  divine   trinity ,
Along with thirty three   crores,
Of devas, and the sages   like Narada ,
Came  before you  and blessed you,
That you will not die even when the   world is ending,
And even when  the deluge comes  you would not die,
And definitely  there is no change to  this.
And the  lords   of   The Veda   told,
He   would be known as  Hanuman.

Vajram  hanuvilethu murigayaal,
Acharithrangal   marannitho manase?
Nin kayil aalayo  thannathu Raghavan ,
Anguleeyam   athum yenthinennorka   nee,
Thwal bala  veerya  vegangal  varnippathin yi,
Prapanchathingal  aarkkum mammalledo?

Since  the vajrayudha broke your collar  bone(Hanu),
Did you forget all  these stories in your mind.
Did  not Rama  give to you specially,
The ring, please think , why  he gave it?
Nobody   in this world   would be capable
Of  describing your strength valour  and speed.

Itham  vidhi suthan chonna neram Vayu,
Puthanumuthaya   sathwaram preethanai,
Brahmandamasu  kulungu maru onnavan,
SAmmadhaal  Simha nadham cheytharulinaan,
Vamana  moorthiye ppole valarnnavan,
Bhoomidharakaranai  ninnu chollinaan.

As soon as the son of Brahma   told this,
The son of wind god got up greatly pleased,
And with pride  made  a roar  of  a lion,
By which  the entire   universe  shook,
And like  God Vamana  he started  growing,
And became like  a mountain and told.

 Langanam  cheythu  samudaratheyum pinne,
Lanka puratheyum basmamaakki kshanaal,
Ravanane kulathodum odukki jnan,
Deviyeyum kondu  poruvan ippozhe,
Allaikilo Dasakandane bandhichu ,
Mellave  vama karathil yeduthudan,
Kooda thrayathodu  Lanka puratheyum,
Koode  valathu  karathilakki kondu,
Ramanthike vechu Kai thouzhutheeduven,
Ramanguleeyam   yen kaiyil undakayaal,

I will cross  the  ocean and  then,
And within a second turn the city of Lanka in to ashes ,
And completely destroy Ravana with his clan,
And would bring  Lady  Sita   with me,
Otherwise I will imprison the ten headed one,
And carry him in my  left hand ,
And also carry city of Lanka  with its three mountains,
In my  right hand  , bring them here,
And keep them  at the feet of Rama and salute him.
Because  I am having the ring of  Rama with me.

Maruthi vakku kettoru  vidhi suthan,
AArooda  kouthukam   chollinnan pinneyum,
“DEviye kandu  thirye  varuga nee ,
Ravananodu  yethirtheeduvaan pinneyaam,
Nigrahicheedum dasasyane  Raghavan,
Vikramam kaatuvvan anneram aamallo,
Pushkara  margena pokum ninakkoru,
Vighnam varaayga, Kalyanam bhavikka they,
Marutha devanum   undarige thava ,
Sri Rama karyarthammaayallo  pokunnu.”

Hearing the words  of Hanuman , The son of Brahma,
With increasing happiness   told again,
You  see   the lady Sita and  then come back,
You can oppose   Ravana  later ,
Rama   will kill the ten headed  one,
And at   that time   you can show your valour  ,
To you  who is travelling   through  the sky,
Let not any problems come , Let auspiciousness  come to you,
As the   wind god also would be near you,
Because you are  going   for  doing a job to Rama.”

Aaseervachanavum   cheythu , kapi kula maasu,
Pogennu vidhichoranantharam,
Vegena poi  mahendrathin mukaleri,
Nagariye  pole  ninnu vilanginaan ,

With a words   of blessing   that  clan of monkeys ,
Gave   him permission to go   and,
He  speedily  climbed up the Mahendra  mountain,
And    he appeared  like    a  Garuda(eagle) there.

Itham  par anjariyochoru thathayum  ,
Badha  modhathodu  irunnathakkalame

The parrot   which told   like this,
Sat   with great happiness  at that time.

Ithya  Adhyathma   Ramayane   Uma Maheswara  samvadhe ,
Kishkinda kandam  samaptham

Thus   ends the chapter  on Kishkinda  ‘
Which occurs in discussion between Shiva and Parvathi ,
From the  Adhyathma   Ramayana.
