Srimad Sundarakandam !! Kingdom of Lanka burned into ashes!!

Jai Sriman Narayana !!

Thasya Thadhwachanam Shruthva Dasagrivo Mahathmana:
Desakala Hitham Vakyam Bhrathuruthara Mabhraveeth
Samya Guktham Hi Bhavatha Dhootha Vadhya Vigarhitha
Avashyam Kila Lagoolam Ishtam Bhavathi Bhooshanam
Thadhasya Deepyatham Sheegram Thena Dhagdhena Gacchathu.
Sa Thani Hathva Rana Chanda Vikrama: Sameekshamana: Punareva Lankam
Pradeeptha Lagoola Krutharchi Mali Prakasha Aditya Ivarchimali.

Ravana after a moment of meticulous thought ordered his men to fire the tail of Anjaneya and take him for a walk around the city of Lanka.  Soon the demons wrapped up the gigantic tail of Anjaneya with rags and poured oil on it and set fire on the tail.   Anjaneya mounted with rage pushed away the demons; the demons witnessed Anjaneya with blazing tail were rejoiced over the failure of him, shortly crowd of demons were followed Anjaneya with the drumbeat.  Some of the demons were informed Sita about the pathetic state of Anjaneya.  Sita was horrified at the news and started paying homage to Lord Agni, she sincerely prayed “If I am a chaste woman devoted to my husband, let the fire cool Anjaneya.  If Rama has kindness towards me and if I have some fortune, let the fire cool Anjaneya.  If virtuous Rama treats me as a woman of moral conduct and desirous to meet, let the fire cool Anjaneya.  If Sugriva was sincere in performing his promise and capable to retrieve me from the ocean of sorrow, let the fire cool Anjaneya”.  Instantly, the fire on the tail of Anjaneya turned out a cool-breeze for him, though it was blazing like furnace, it does not hurt him at all.  Anjaneya realized the effective prayer of Sita, he wandered the city of Lanka with his burning tail, decided to set fire to all those beautiful mansions before him.  Like a fire ball moved to the mansions of Prahastha, Mahaparsva, Vajradamshtra, Shuka, Sarana, moved to the mansion of Vibhishana and meticulously avoided, he rushed to the manor of Rashmikethu, Suryashatru, Hrasvakarna, Dhamshtra, Romasa, Yuddhonmaththa, Maththa, Dwajagreevah, Vidhyujivha, Hasthimukha, Karala, Pischacha, Shonithaksha, Kumbhakarna, Makaraksha, Yajnashatru, Brahmashatru, Naranthaka, Kumbha and Nikumbha and set fire on them.  Gradually moved to the palace of Ravana, he set fire on the majestic palace made of precious stones and gems.  Soon, the flame vigorously spread all over the place with the soaring speed of the wind,  the mansion embellished with precious metals, gems and stone were exploded with deafening noise, women and men were panicky scattered to different places with their lives.  The molten metal contains the precious stones and gems were surging through the majestic path ways.  Anjaneya burnt the city of Lanka like Rudra engulfed the city of Tripura.  In the middle of combustion Lanka gave out an appearance of millions of Aditya, the demons were forced to think that he was not just a monkey, he must be any of the deities like Lord Indra , Lord Varuna, Lord Yama, Lord Kubera, Lord Shiva, Lord Vayu, Lord Surya or Kala, may be the furious form of Lord Brahma or Lord Vishnu in disguise.  The city of Lanka reverberated with the sounds of pitiable cries of demons and in a short time the prosperous city of Lanka turned out heap of ash.  Anjaneya majestically stood on the top of Mount Trikoota, immersed at the thought of Rama, with his burning tail which created an impression of garland of fire surrounded by him.  All the celestials Gandharvas, Vidhyadharas, Nagas, Yakshas Rishis and Sages were eulogized the braveness and intelligence of Anjaneya with immense joy.
Jai Sriman Narayana !!
