Ram Vijaya-Chapter 31.
Ravana, having been acquainted with this news imploringly. said to Bramhadev, " You see, Indrajit is in difficulty. If you personally go there, you will be able to ensnare the monkey. I, therefore, beseech you to do the Work for me." Whereupon Bramhadev went near the cfive, when Indrajit hung his head down with shame and said, " Unless you catch hold of the monkey, I can not venture to come out of the cave, Whereupon Bramhadev put upon Maruti the Brarhha pasa.[A complicated snare.]

 Maruti could have broken in a minute, but he allowed himself to be caught in it and carried to the court of Ravana. Indrajit went and vainly told his father that it was he who had caught the monkey. Maruti made a coil of his tail higher than the throne of Ravana and sat upon it. The demon-king; indignantly, asked, " Who are you and what is the name of your master ?" " You are," replied Maruti, rogue,. . Do you know who I am? I am a servant of that prince who had saved your life at the court of Janak and cut off the nose of your sister. Yon are a great villain.

You have carried off his wife, Sita. I am sent by my master to ascertain whether she is here. My master will shortly invade Lanka and, cutting off your ten faces, will return to Ayodya with Sita." At these words Ravana was greatly insulted and ordered the demons to cut off the tongue, nose, ears and tail of the monkey. In obedience to the order of the king all the demons brought weapons of various sorts and began to pierce him with them but nothing could be done to him, as his body was made of vajara [diamond]. Ravana was alarmed and did not know what to do.

At last he asked the monkey by what means he would die. " I am immortal," replied Maruti, " but if you cover my tail with cloth soaked in oil and set fire to it, I shall be immediately burnt to death. Do not leave any part of my tail uncovered, and if you do so, nothing can be done to me." Whereupon Ravana ordered his servants to cover his tail with cloth. All the demons accordingly brought innumerable heaps of cloth soaked in oil and began to cover the tail of the monkey with them, but the more they covered the tail with them, the more he lengthened it; and consequently a part of it remained uncovered. All the cloth in Lanka was finished and oil exhausted.

At last Ravana ordered his servants to go to the Asoka forest and get the dress of Sita, when Maruti shortened his tail and allowed it to be entirely covered. The demons then began to set fire to the tail but they failed to light it. Maruti said, " If Ravana will blow the fire himself, it will catch my tail; and I shall be immediately burnt to death." Ravana accordingly blew the fire and the tail of the monkey was lighted.

Whilst he was blowing the fire, it caught his beard; and his mustaches on one side were entirely burnt. He covered bis face with his handkerchief and retired to his chamber.
