Ramavijaya. 73 possible.J> When the Brahman found that Maruti did not comply with his wishes, he showed him a river. Maruti went there and stooped to take water, when a vivasi* as big as a mountain came out to devour the monkey, who at once Seized her by her legs and instantly killed her. Whea she was killed, a beautiful devangana^ came out of her belly and threw herself at the feet of Maruti. She said, " I was very beautiful; and, being proud of my beauty, I laughed at a sage, who got indignant and cursed me, saying that I would be a vivasi. I implored him to look upon me with mercy and make the curse a little milder, when he said that I would be released from the curse by your hands. I also inform you that the Brahman, who lives in tbat abode, is a demon called Kalnemi. He has been here for many days with his companions, who are also demons. Havana has sent this demon to detain you here, and when you refused to comply with his wishes, he told you to go to that rivet in order that I might devour you." No sooner did the devangana inform Maruti of this than he came back to the abode of the Brahman, when the latter said to the monkey, " You ought to give me some presents, as I have pointed out the river to you." " I shall be very glad to give you presents," replied Maruti. The demon stared at the monkey, when the latter gave him blows as precious presents from him. The demon immediately assumed his original form which was five yojans in length and breadth, and combated with Maruti but the latter instantly killed him; and his companions fled to Lanka to inform Havana of it. Maruti then went to Dronagiri and Implored him to accompany him to Suvela, when the mountain said, u Thou art a troublesome creature. Go away, Thou, fool. I will never come with thee." Maruti got enraged and. having lifted up the mountain with his tail, set out for Suvela. > But on the road Bharat, the *A goddess, f ^ courtesan of heaven.
