Lk20. Brahma Appeases Yama - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

LAVA KUSA (UTTARAKANDA)

When Lord Yama thought
A losing battle he fought,
He took the final weapon
To Kill Ravana, the demon.

That was Brahma's weapon,
The rod for total destruction.
Seeing it, gods of the heaven
Rushed to Lord Brahma then.

Pacifying Yama, Brahma told,
"Oh Lord of Death, you're bold,
But it's a dangerous weapon,
That'll, in the end, spare none."

"A total disaster it'll cause,
Destroying the total mass,
Including Ravana, the demon,
Thus falsifying my given boon."

"If my boon to Ravana fails,
My words also go false,
So, please spare your rod
From destroying the world."

Yama gave due respect
To Lord Brahma's request
And disappeared at last,
From the main battle front.

This way Ravana declared
That Yama was conquered,
And back in his aerial car
He flew as a false winner.

Thereafter Yama went back
To go ahead with his work,
While Narada rose to heaven,
As what he aimed, it was done.

It was Narada's intention
To draw the attention
Of the silent heaven
For killing this demon

Narada's plot, be it whatever,
Whenever and wherever,
Its result was always good,
About his nature, it was said.
