"RAMA VIJAYA" - Chapter 5

At this time there was a great famine in the country, as there was no rain for twelve years; and consequently the subjects of the king died of thirst and hunger one after another. The rain was stopped, because Vrashaparva, a powerful demon, fought with the gods in heaven with the assistance of his guru, Shukra. Indra, therefore, sent a chariot to Dasharatha and requested him to come up to heaven and kill the demon, informing him at the same time, that the rain was stopped on account of the battle with the gods.

Whereupon Dasharatha went by the chariot to Indra with his favourit wife, Kayakayi.Immediately on his arrival there Dasharatha fought with the demons and killed a large number of them, when Vrashaparva made an attack upon the king but he was also repulsed.

His guru, Shukra, then took the field and discharged arrows at the king, when the chariot of the king was about to give way but his wife, Kayakayi, supported it by one of her hands, of which the king knew nothing. Dasharatha bravely continued the fight and cut off the guru s horse and mugut.[ A Tiara,]. Shukra fled in alarm with the other demons.

When every thing was over, the king was informed that the victory he had gained in the battle with the demons, was due to his wife, Kayakayi. The king was pleased with her, and asked her what reward she wanted from him. Kayakayi replied, " Kindly give me your promise that you will give me whatever I will ask from you; and I shall ask you for it whenever I like." The king generously gave the promise she required.

The victory, gained by Dasharatha in the battle with the demons, was due to Kaikeyi, because when she was young, a Tapaswi [a sage] came to her parents and stayed with them for a day. At the time of his bathing her mother told her to go and rub his body with scents. She accordingly went to him with the scents ; but finding that the Tapaswi was absorbed in meditation, she applied soot to his face instead of the scents.

Having found that the soot had been applied to his face, he got indignant and cursed the doer of the mischeif and said. " Whoever has applied this soot to my face, will always be looked upon by all people with contempt." Her mother was afraid of this curse; and finding that it was her daughter s doing, she threw herself at the feet of the Tapaswi and implored him to make the curse a little milder. Whereupon the Tapaswi said, " The hand with which your daughter has applied the soot to my face, will give success to her husband in a battle which he will fight with demons and for which only she will be praised by all."
