Sitaji Blesses Hanuman

Sita was satisfied at heart to hear Hanuman's words laden with Rama's majesty, splendour, power and religious devotion.Assuming him to be dear to Lord Rama she blessed Hanuman, “Oh dear! May you become the repository of morals and strength.Dear son! May you be changeless and immortal (devoid of old age) and a treasury of virtues. May Lord of the Raghus shower his grace on you in abundance."


Hanuman takes Permission from Sitaji

Hanuman was overwhelmed with emotion the instant he heard,'May the Lord be merciful.' Hanuman bowed his head over and over again at Sita's feet and said with folded hands, thereafter, “ Oh mother! I am going to be successful now.This fact is renowned that your blessing is unfailing (sure to succeed). Listen, oh mother!I am feeling ravenous at the sight of these trees loaded with delicious fruits. (Sita warned) , “I must tell you that this grove is guarded by very mighty and valiant demons. (Hanuman replied) I am least scared of them if you happily give me permission to go ahead."


Seeing Hanuman's accomplished perfection in wisdom and strength, Janaki gave her consent, "Go dear child!And keeping the feet of Lord Raghunath in your heart, relish the sweet fruits.

Hanuman Uprooting Trees and Fighting Demons

Bowing his head before Sita, he went ahead and entered the grove. Soon after eating the fruit, he began uprooting the trees. Many warriors had been deployed there as guards. He killed some of them while the others ran to Ravana and pleaded for help. (They begged), “Oh Lord!A very huge monkey has arrived and ruined the Ashok Vatika.He ate fruit, tore off the trees and crushing those on guard with his palms, he has strewn them on the ground. Hearing this incident, Ravana sent a large number of warriors.


Hanuman thundered on sighting them and killed the demons. Some of them who were half-dead fled away, screaming. Soon after, Ravana sent Akshay Kumar who surged ahead with countless, topmost warriors.Seeing them approach, Hanuman took a tree (in his hand)and challenged them.Killing Akshay Kumar, Hanuman roared with a loud voice.

He killed some of the troops and crushed the others. Catching hold of some, he merged them with the dust. Once again those who escaped, ran and wailed, “Oh Lord! The monkey is too strong for us.”
