Chapter [Sarga] 47 - Search for Sita failed in east, north, and west

Introduction - Search for Seetha failed in east, north, and west directions. The Vanara chiefs who went there have come back to inform that she is not found and they all hoped Hanuman to find her out, because he is pursuing the direction in which Seetha was taken away.

1. As commanded by the king of Vanaras Sugreeva all of the elephantine Vanaras essayed everywhere with post-hast for a glimpse of Vaidehi. [4-47-1]

2. Those Vanaras have thoroughly searched at lakes, in the pens of creepers on riverbanks, in vacant lands and in crowded cities and at impassable places with rivers and mountains. [4-47-2]

3. All the Vanara commanders explicitly commanded by Sugreeva, very carefully searched all the provinces inclusive of their mountains, woodlands, and thick forests. [4-47-3]

4. All the Vanara-s firmed up in finding Seetha have searched nooks and corners of earth by day, and at nighttimes they used to coming together onto earth at scheduled places. [4-47-4]

5. In all those days those Vanara-s used to come to trees which have fruits of all seasons to make those trees as their beds at bedtime. [4-47-5]

Or to say in another way: drumaan saphalaan cakruH= 'trees, blessed to be fruitful, they...' Because they resided on all the trees of all provinces, Rama blesses all of the trees of those and those countries through those monkeys, namely the agents of Rama. Even now allowing a troop of monkeys into orchard or groves is tolerable and sacred. But after a sumptuous meal, they start all their monkey tricks and ransack gardens, which is intolerable and then they are driven out.

6. Counting the day of their starting as day one, those elephantine Vanaras returned to Mt. Prasavana within one month, hopeless of Seetha, and met Sugreeva, the king of Vanaras, who is with Rama awaiting the return of Vanaras. [4-47-6]

7. Cmdr. Vinata, the great-mighty vanara, came back after searching eastern quarter as Sugreeva had advised, but without finding Seetha there. [4-47-7]

8. Even the valiant and matchless Vanara Shatabali explored whole of the northern direction along with his army, but he too came back as Seetha is undiscovered there. [4-47-8]

9. Sushena, the father-in-law of Sugreeva, searching whole of western quarter along with vanara-s, but not finding Seetha there, he came back when one month is completed, and approached Sugreeva. [4-47-9]

10. All of the expeditionists have reached and venerated Sugreeva who is sitting along with Rama on the peak of Mt. Prasravana and spoke this to him. [4-47-10]

11. All of the mountains, all of the serried forests, all of the riversides up to the edge of oceans, likewise, all of the inhabitations have been searched. [4-47-11]

12. Those caves that were explicitly extolled by you, they are all thoroughly searched, and immense shrubby hutches that are thickly entwined with climber plants have also been rummaged. [4-47-12]

13. Search is conducted in the compacted, lopsided, and impenetrable provinces, and colossal beings are hunted out and killed presuming that Ravana might have assumed those odd shapes, and the impassable provinces are searched high and low, time and again. [4-47-13]

14. Hanuman is high-born and exceptionally mighty, oh, Sugreeva, the king of vanara-s, he will ascertain about Maithili, because the son of Air-god, Hanuman, resorted to the direction in which Seetha is taken away." Thus, Vanara chiefs reported to their king Sugreeva. [4-47-14]
