मरणान्तानि वैराणि

मरणान्तानि वैराणि निर्वृत्तं नः प्रयोजनम्।
क्रियतामस्य संस्कारो ममाप्येष यथा तव॥९९-३९॥
—श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामयणे युद्धकाण्डः
maraṇāntāni vairāṇi nirvṛttaṁ naḥ prayojanam |
kriyatāmasya saṁskāro mamāpyeṣa yathā tava ||99-39||
—śrīmadvālmīkirāmayaṇe yuddhakāṇḍaḥ
Enmity ends with death; it is of no use to desist
Perform his last rites; He’s [now] mine (my brother) as is yours.

(Lord Śri Rāma said this to Vibhīshaṇa on the battle field)
