He said to himself: "What wealth, what beauty and what bliss!"
He was for a while lost in amazement. But
soon he recollected that he had not yet found Seeta. Admiration gave place to concern over
the yet unfulfilled purpose for which he had come.
Passing through many mansions, he entered
the innermost private apartment of Raavana and was almost overcome with the luxury
and richness of its apartments which made it look a very abode of the gods. Everywhere was
gold and silver, ivory and gems and pearls, and beautiful carpets and furniture and in
their midst he saw the Pushpaka Vimaana.
It was a magic vehicle obtained from Brahma
by Kubera. Vanquishing Kubera, Raavana brought it to Lanka as his booty. As from
Vasishtha's cow, in the Pushpaka car one could get anything one desired.
