Lord Rama Dwells in Hanumanji's Heart
"Do all your work by entering the city of Lanka with the king of Ayodhya dwelling in your heart. Poison is converted into nectar, foes become friends, the ocean shrinks to the size of a cow's hoof and fire becomes cool for such a person. And Oh Garuda! Mount Sumeru becomes like a speck of dust for him on whom Lord Ramchandra has cast his merciful glance just once." That is when Hanuman assumed a very minute form and invoking Rama, gained entry into the city. He rigorously searched every palace and saw innumerable warriors all over the place.
Ravana Deep Asleep in His Palace
Then he went to Ravana's palace. It was extremely majestic and defied description. Hanuman saw that Ravana was deep asleep but he did not find Janki, Videhas' daughter, there. Thereafter he saw another palatial building with a separate temple of Hari built in it.

That palace had sketches of Lord Ram's weapons (bows and arrows) drawn on it. Its splendour can not be described. Hanuman was overjoyed to see clusters of tulsi saplings planted there.

Lanka is supposed to be the abode of hordes of demons. How could a virtuous person reside here? Hanuman rued over this point in his mind and that is precisely when Vibhisana woke up. He (Vibhishana) began to chant the name of Rama and Hanuman was delighted within to know that he was a good man. He thought that he would certainly introduce himself because one 's mission never suffers at the hands of a holy man (but gains on the contrary).
Assuming the form of a brahman, Hanuman called out to him. The instant he heard his call,Vibhishana got up and came there. Bowing respectfully, he asked about his well-being and said, “Oh Brahman Dev!Explain about yourself to me. Are you one of Hari's devotees? Because on seeing you great love is surging in my heart. Or are you Ramji himself, a loving friend of the poor, who has come to bless me with great good fortune ?(by giving me darshan at home)
