Naraka the Asura


Hey Indra, come


Thus consoling the demoness,

Narakasura, who reached the heaven

ruled by Indra, with his eyes spitting

fire of rage and with thunderous

voice, said thus to Indra.


Hey Indra, … come….

Come for a fight on the battle field, with me

who is courageous.

I will win over all your powers

I am arrogant due to the boons from Brahma

Even if Vishnu comes for a duel, I am not

afraid, you fool….

I am comparable to the demons Madhu and

Kaitabha. See the enormous power that I possess. 

Oh, the one like beautiful garlands



When Jayantha respectfully told the

story of the demoness to Indra,

Narakasura, in his palace,

romantically told his wife thus.


Oh, the one like beautiful garlands worn by young girls.
Oh, the one with a forehead like a crescent
Kindly listen to my words
Oh, beautiful lady
Did you see these beautiful peacocks dancing and playing
Brahmini Ducks, Swans and Pelicans are
enjoying themselves
