Hanumanji fights the Rakshasas (SundarKanda continued)

*

Puni padayavu tehim Acchakumara/chala sang lai subhat apara//

Aavat dekhi bitap gahi tarja/taahi nipaati mahadhuni garja//

Then Ravan sent forth his son Akshaya Kumar, he took innumerable warriors with him

Seeing him arrive, Hanumanji uprooted a tree and challenged him, he killed Akshaya Kumar and gave a great roar of victory

*

Doha:

Kacchu maresy kacchu mardesy kacchu milayesy dhari dhuri/

Kacchu puni jayi pukare Prabhu markat bal bhuri//

Hanumanji killed some of the warriors, some he crushed, and some he caught and smashed them on the ground( mixed them with dust)

Some escaped and ran to Ravan crying, Hey Lord! The monkey is extraordinarily strong

*

Suni suth badh Lankes risana/padayesy Meghnath balvana//

Marasi jani suth bandhesu tahi/dekhia kapihi kahan kar aahi//

Ravan was furious to hear about the death of his son, he then asked his eldest son Meghnath the great warrior to lead the army

(He said) Hey Son! Do not kill him, bind him down, I want to find out where this monkey is from

*

Chala  Indrajeet atulit jodha/ bandhu nidhan suni upaja krodha//

Kapi dekha darun bhat aava/katkatai garja aru dhava//

Meghnath was a warrior who had vanquished Indra( hence the name Indrajeet), he was a supreme fighter, he was furious about the death of his brother

Hanumanji recognised that a great warrior had arrived, he roared mightily and ran towards him

*

Athi bisal taru ek upara/ biradh keenh Lankes Kumara//

Rahe mahabhat taake sanga/ gahi gahi kapi mardayi nij anga//

Hanumanji pulled out a huge tree and destroyed the chariot of Indrajeet( the warrior fell on the ground)

Then he caught hold of some of the accompanying Rakshasas and started crushing them against his body

*

Tinhahi nipati taahi san baaja/bhire jugal manahu gajraja//

Mudika maari chada taru jaayi/taahi ek chan murcha aayi//

After killing them, Hanumanji started fighting with Meghnath,Looking at them, it felt as if two majestic elephants were locking tusks

Hanumanji hit him hard with his fist and then jumped atop a tree, Meghnath felt faint for a moment

*

Udi bahory keenhisy bahu Maya/jeethi na jaayi Prabhanjan jaaya//

Then Meghnath got up and started his Maya ( he was a master of wizardry), but he could not defeat the Son of the Wind God

*

Doha:

Brahma Astra tehi saandha kapi man keenh bichar/

Jaum na Brahmasar manavu mahima mitayi apar//

Finally Meghnath tried the Brahma Astra, and seeing that Hanumanji thought

If he didn’t respect the divine weapon, its famed greatness will be badly affected

*

Brahmabaan kapi tehim maara/ paratihu baar kataku sankhaara//

Tehim dekha kapi muruchith bhayavu/Nagpaas badhesy lai gayavu//

Mehghnath send forth the Brahma Astra, and Hanumanji fell from the tree, killing many soldiers even during that time

When saw that Hanumanji was unconscious, he tied him up with the NagAstra( Serpent Rope) and carried him away

*

Jaasu naam japi sunahu Bhavani/bhay bandhan katahim nar gyani//

Taasu dooth ki bandh taru aava/prabhu kaaraj lagi kapihim bandhava//

(Lord Shiv says), Hey Bhavani!The One Whose Name is recited by the wise to cut away the bonds of birth and death,

Can His messenger be ever bound down? But for doing His Lord’s work, Hanuman has willingly got himself captured
