स चेत्तव मखे विघ्नं करोति किल दुर्मतिः ।
तत्संग्रामे न शक्ताः स्मो वयं तस्य दुरात्मनः ॥ २८ ॥

sa cettava makhe vighnaṃ karoti kila durmatiḥ |
tatsaṃgrāme na śaktāḥ smo vayaṃ tasya durātmanaḥ || 28 ||

If it is he, the evil minded Ravana, that stands in the way of thy rites, we are unable to contend with that pest.
