In Sundara Kanda, a mention was made about Dhanyamalini, wife of Ravana.
After a heated debate with Sita, Ravana reminds her, with a mind full of lust and anger, of the deadline of 2 more months for surrendering to him. Then Dhanyamalini pacifies him and takes him back to his mansion.
उपगम्य ततः शीघ्रं राक्षसी धान्यमालिनी || ५-२२-३९ परिष्वज्य दशग्रीवमिदं वचनमब्रवीत् |
Thereafter an ogre named Dhanyamalini quickly neared Ravana, embraced him and spoke these words.
मया क्रीड महाराज सीतया किं तवानया || ५-२२-४० विवर्णया कृपणया मानुष्या राक्षसेश्वर |
O king! Sport with me. O lord of ogres! Of what use to you is this Seetha who is colorless and a wreched human.
एवमुक्तस्तु राक्षस्या समुत्क्षिप्तस्ततो बली || ५-२२-४३ प्रहसन्मेघसम्काशो राक्षसः स न्यवर्तत |
Thus spoken to by that ogre that Ravana who was strong equalling a cloud, thereafter being taken away turned back laughing.
While narrating his exploits in Lanka to vanaras, Sri Hanuma says as follows:
विवृत्य नयने क्रूरे मुष्टिम् उद्यम्य दक्षिणम् || ५-५८-७४ मैथिलीम् हन्तुम् आरब्धः स्त्रीभिः हाहा कृतम् तदा |
Rolling his cruel eyes and lifting his right fist, Ravana was about to kill Seetha. Then, an alarm was raised by a woman there
स्त्रीणाम् मध्यात् समुत्पत्य तस्य भार्या दुरात्मनः || ५-५८-७५ वरा मन्द उदरी नाम तया स प्रतिषेधितः |
Springing up from the midst of those women, a royal woman named Mandodari, the wife of that evil-minded Ravana, ran to him. He was restrained by her.
Here Sri Hanuma was saying that it was Mandodari, who stopped Ravana.
Can anybody explain whether Mandodari and Dhanyamalini are one and the same? If not, why did Sage Valmiki mention two different names indicating the same woman?
