cjf Kiskiada proclaimed me as their king against my
wishes. la the meantime^ Vaii returned to the cave
with the head of Mayasur and, haying seen the mouth
of it blocked up, he was alarmed on account of me. He
immediately removed the mountain and directly came to
Kiskinda. As soon as he saw me on the throne, he,

and cut off his head. If I am killed in the fight, Angada
will protect you." So saying Vali went and attacked Su-
griva, when Rama killed the former with one arrow. Tara,
his wife, violently cried for her husband, when Eama con-

griva, " It is a bad thing that you have forgot Rama and
left him alone in the forest. There stands Lakshuman at
the door of your palace. Take care he will kill us" all'*'
