Ram Vijaya-Chapter 34.
Rama prayed to the sea for three days without eating a morsel of food; but the sea was so impertinent that he did not listen to his prayer, when the prince got indignant and aimed his dhanushaban to dry up the sea. The sea was alarmed and said, " Kindly forgive me and do not dry me up. I am ready to do what you bid me do." " Very well," replied Rama, " but what shall I do with this dhanushaban ? It must be at any rate let off according to my solemn resolution which cannot be changed under any circumstances."
" There lives in the west a demon" called Maru, continued the sea. " He devours all creatures in the water. Please, therefore, let off the arrow at him and ent off his head." Baroa accordingly discharged the arrow at him and cut off his head. When the head fell on the ground, it drank off a sheet of the sea-water in the west and thereby a tract of land, which is now called Marwad, was formed. The sea regarded Rama as his son-in-law and presented him with a dress and ornaments, whieh he accepted at the request of the monkeys; and when he wore them, he looked very beautiful.

 Rama asked the sea what means he-should adopt to cross the water with so many monkeys, when he said, "You can have a shetu [A bridge or pool] built over me. Let it be built by Nala with stones and mountains, which will float on the surface of the water only by his hands. When Nala was young, he always worshipped shaligrams [A black stone found in the river Gadanki, and worshipped as sacred to Vishnu.] and threw them into the sea-water. A Rishi was pleased with him and blessed him, saying that by his hands, stones and mountain would float on the water, So saying to Rama, the sea disappeared. Immediately after, Rama called Nala and said to him, " To cross the sea, a shetu must be built by you of stones and mountains, which will float on the water by your liands only.

 I, therefore, beg you to order all the monkeys, to procure stones and mountains and lay them by your hands in the water. Nala was puffed up with pride and said to himself that the shetu could not be built without him. So saying Nala ordered the monkeys to get stones and mountains which the latter brought and gave in charge of the former. Nala built a portion of the shetu, but the fishes in the sea ate it. He again built it but the fishes again ate it. He was at a loss to know what to do.

 Maruti said to him, " Pride goeth before destruction. You thought that the bridge could not be built without you. What do you say now ? Leave off your pride and be humble. Now write the name of Rama on each stone aiid lay it in the water; and if you do this, you will be able to build the shetu within a short time. Nala did it as directed by Maruti; and the shetu was built one hundred yojans in length and breadth so far as Suvela without any difficulty. After the shetu was completed, Rama crossed it with his army and came to Suvela, where he encamped his army.
