Ram Vijaya-Chapter 54.
Valmika brought Sita to his abode and took every care of her. After the expiration of nine months, she was delivered of twin sons at midday as bright as the sun, when the wives of the Rishis came and helped her in her confinement. The first born son was the younger and the second born was the eldest. The disciples of Valmika went and informed the Rishi of the birth of the two sons. Whereupon Valmika immediately came to his abode and performed the necessary ceremony.
He sprinkled water over the younger son with a cusha [Grass] and named him Kusha after it. The eldest son having been placed on lavas,[A rush-like grass.} the Rishi, in like manner, sprinkled the water over him and called him Lahu.

When the two sons became eight years old, the Rishi performed their Vrataband [The ceremony of invesiting a boy with a thread] and entertained the Rishis for four days. A kamdhenu or a cow supplied them with whatever they wanted. The Rishi taught them the Vedas, mantras, Ramayan, the Purans and dhanurvidya. They thoroughly mastered all sciences and arts and always played with the sons of the Rishis. When they became ten years old, they went on hunting excursions and brought home the animals killed by them.

One day Kusha killed a sage on the top of a mountain, who was a brother of Valmika. He was meditating there in the form of a deer. They dragged the corpse of the sage towards the abode of Valmika, when the latter asked them on the road what they were doing. " We have brought a deer for you" replied they, " and shall make a seat of its skins for you. Valamika, having looked at the corpse, found that it was his brother and said to himself " Now both the boys have become very brave. They have even killed a Brahman." So saying to himself Valmika performed the funeral ceremony of his brother and informed Sita of the valour of her sons, when she said, " What do I know ? It is you who have taught them dhanurvidya, mantras, arts, and all sciences. I implore you, Papa, to free them from the sin.

" Unless they bring one thousand Brahma Kamals"[Lotuses] replied Valmika, " and worship the god, Siva, with all their heart and soul, they will not be freed from the sin." u Papa, will you kindly tell us where those kamals can be had ?" enquired the boys. " We will immediately bring them here." " There is a lake called Brahmasarovar near Ayodya," continued Valmika, " but a number of warriors are posted by Rama to watch it. Those kamals are used by Rama for the worship of Siva." " Pooh!" said the boys, " We shall immediately bring those kamals. Let there be hundreds of brave warriors to watch the lake, we shall punish them and even capture Rama." So saying they hastened to the lake.

Kusha went and plucked all the kamals, when the warriors came upon him; but Lahu killed many of them. Those who had escaped, went and informed Rama of what the boys had done. Rama was greatly surprised, and praised the valour of the
boys. Lahu and Kusha brought the kamals and worshipped Siva as directed by Valmika, and thus they were freed from the sin they had committed in killing the Brahman.
