81 Noticing that Ravana was coming towards him, Neela started jumping on to his bow, flag mast, horses, chariot and also over his ten heads, without coming under his grasp; Ravana was stunned by this move.
82 The king of the Rakshasas, Ravana, took up the Agneyastra and aimed it at Neela; Neela fell down due to it; But the fire did not burn him; Isn’t he verily the avatara of Agni himself?
83 Ravana then rushed towards Lord Rama; Lakshmana quickly stopped him; Being the best amongst archers, both of them started showering arrows that were capable of cutting the protective coats of each others’ bodies.
84 Ravana, who was thus stopped by Lakshmana, got very furious and picked up an excellent and fiery arrow given to him by Brahma and, aiming at Lakshmana’s forehead, released it.
85 Lakshmana, who was badly hurt by that, fell down unconscious; The ten-headed Ravana got down from his chariot, went towards him, and forcefully tried to lift him away with his shoulders.
86 Even though he was badly hurt, Lakshmana regained his consciousness and remembered his original form of Sesha, along with the amsha of Lord Sri Hari; Ravana then could not move Lakshmana even a bit.
87 Ravana started pulling Lakshmana forcefully with all of his 20 arms; The entire earth, along with Meru, Mandara and all the oceans shook; But Lakshmana did not move even a bit.
88 The entire earth, along with the seven patalas, seven great mountains and the seven great oceans reside on one head of the thousand headed Adi Sesha, as if like a mustard seed; Who can carry away such a person by force?
89 The king of the Rakshasas, Ravana, kept trying to pull Lakshmana; At that time, Hanuman, who is the other form of Vayudeva, the king of all Jivas, jumped and stood in front of him.
90 Hanuman smashed Ravana angrily with his fist which was like the Vajra; Ravana then fell down on the ground, spreading his twenty arms and bleeding from all of his ten heads.
91 Having felled Ravana in that manner, Hanuman lifted Lakshmana and went to Lord Rama, who was Lord Hari Himself, the One who sleeps on Sesha; Isn’t Hanuman the one who is capable of (up)lifting Lakshmana?
92 By the divine touch of Lord Rama, the weakness of Lakshmana was relieved; As soon as He removed the arrows, Lakshmana sat up; And he started shining just like the full moon which has come out of the clutches of Rahu.
93 Lord Rama then picked up His bow and arrow which were like the body of Sesha and told Ravana, who had regained consciousness – “O Ravana! get ready”
94 Climbing his chariot once again, Ravana moved towards Lord Rama along with his bow and arrows; Knowing all the great astras, he created darkness in all directions with his arrows.
95 “When this king of Rakshasas is sitting in a chariot, my Lord should not be standing on the ground” – thinking thus, the son of Pavana made the Lord sit on his shoulders and went towards the Rakshasa.
96 With a smile, Lord Rama killed his (Ravana’s) horses and finished his charioteer; He broke his chariot and flags; He destroyed his bow, swords and other weapons and destroyed his royal umbrella; He spilt his crown on to the ground after splitting it.
97 Looking at him standing clueless, Lord Rama said “Now you get back; Go home; Satisfy all your desires; Fulfill the wishes of your relatives; Come back again to die”.
98 When the Lord spoke thus, Ravana returned home with his head held low; He discussed the next steps with his few remaining ministers; He decided to wake up Kumbhakarna.
99 Thousands of Rakshasas went towards Kumbhakarna with rocks and boulders, swords, axes and various other weapons; They found it difficult even to sustain the force of his breath; Somehow they approached him and finally succeeded in waking him up.
100 They had arranged mounds of meat as big as hills and had setup blood flowing in taps; Once he satisfied himself with these, he was welcomed grandly into the royal hall by Ravana.
101 Ravana said to him – “Even as you are alive, I have been defeated in war by a human named ‘Rama’; You kill him and make me happy”
102 When he spoke thus, Kumbhakarna listened to all the reasons and admonished his own brother – “You have taken enemity with Rama, the One with extraordinary valor”
103 “It is never appreciated to take enemity with powerful people; And it is my firm belief that this Rama is very powerful”; When he spoke thus, Ravana replied to him – “It may be my mistake; But you have to protect me; What else is your help for me?”
104 “Based on the trust we have over powerful relatives like you, Kings like me do make mistakes sometimes”; When his older brother spoke thus, Kumbhakarna proceeded for battle.
105 Holding an excellent weapon called ‘Shoola’, Kumbhakarna jumped the fort which was five yojanas in height and went towards battle; The monkey warriors were extremely terrified of him and ran away, even crossing back the bridge (over the ocean).
106 Two monkeys named Shatabali and Panasa were avataras of Vasus; Shweta and Sampati belonged to the class of Maruts; Durmukha was the avatara of Nirruti; Kesari was the eldest amongst Maruts; Kumbhakarna took all of them into his mouth and swallowed them.
107 Kumbhakarna, the best amongst Rakshasas, was extremely valorous; He crushed Kumuda, the avatara of Jayanta, with his hands; At that, five of them, Nala, Gaja, Gavaksha, Gavaya and Vrusha along with Neela and Tara held big boulders and trees in their hands and rushed towards him; He brought all of them down with his fist.
108 After that, Angada, Jambava and Sugreeva got together with other Vanaras who had come holding trees and boulders and started hitting the Rakshasa.
109 All those boulders got crushed when they fell on his chest; But the poweful Rakshasa did not feel any pain at all.
110 The son of Bhaskara (Sugreeva) then lifted a big hill and threw it at him; The Rakshasa held it in his hand and threw it back at Sugreeva, thus smashing him.
111 The son of Surya then fell down on the ground; He then hit Angada and Jambavan also; They too fell down.
112 The powerful Rakshasa then held Sugreeva in his hand and left; Hanuman followed him with the size of a small fly.
113 “I shall get him out only if he gets into a problem with Kumbhakarna; On the other hand, if he can release himself, it is even better”
114 Even as Hanuman was thinking thus, the Rakshasa entered his city; He was worshiped greatly by his relatives.
115 Those relatives started sprinking cold water and flowers from all sides on the Rakshasa; Due to that sprinkling, Sugreeva was woken up and his strain from the battle also vanished; He duped the Rakshasa, jumped up and bit his nose.
116 The King of the monkeys cut off both the ears of the Rakshasa with his hands and bit off his nose with his teeth; He jumped up from there.
117 The Rakshasa then smashed Sugreeva, who had fallen down on the ground, with his hands; He sqaushed him with his feet; But Sugreeva escaped from the gaps in between his toes; The Rakshasa then threw the ‘Shoola’ at him in order to kill him.
118 Hanuman saw that excellent Shoola falling on Sugreeva and stopped it with his hands; He placed it on his knees and broke it in an instant; He gazed at the face of the Rakshasa and roared loudly.
119 At that moment, Kumbhakarna swirled his fist and hit Hanuman on his chest; And then he roared; Disregarding that hit, Hanuman smashed the Rakshasa.
120 When he thus received a shot from Hanuman’s fist, the Rakshasa fell down unconscious; He woke up again and rushed towards Lord Rama.
