Sri Swamiji Says

It is sufficient to chant 'Datta'. This renders Him very happy. Therefore chant 'Sri Guru Datta'.

Such intonation provides immense joy to Lord Anjaneya, as He is also a follower of Lord
Datta

Lord Hanuman Story

In the last newsletter, we learned that Lord Ram and Lord Lakshman had met up with Hanuman. Hanuman offered to arrange a meeting with King Sugreev to help in their search for Sita.

Ram and Lakshman went with Hanuman to meet Sugreev - the very person they were seeking out in this area of the forest. Recently, while searching for Sita, the princes had defeated the demon  Kabandha. Through Lord Ram's grace, the demon was released from his curse and returned to his original form as a gandharva. As a token of his gratitude, he told the princes that they would be reunited with Sita with the help of the vanara King Sugreev. Hence the princes were on the hunt for Sugreev - doubly sure that he was critical to finding Sita.

Hanuman had the honor of introducing the Princes of Ayodhya to King Sugreev. Lord Ram and Sugreev swore their mutual friendship with Lord Agni as their witness and shared their mutual joys and sorrows. Lord Ram swore to restore Sugreev's wife and kingdom to him while Sugreev swore to do all in his power to restore Mother Sita to Lord Ram.

Then Sugreev brought the cloth bundle thrown down from racing chariot of Ravana and showed it to the princes. Rama was overcome with emotion and asked Lakshmana to identify the ornaments as belonging to Sita. Having only gazed upon Mother Sita's feet during his daily prostrations, Lakshmana confirmed the anklets were indeed hers. They had physical confirmation of being on the right path to finding Sita!

But how could Sugreev help Ram without his kingdom? That had to be their first course of action. Sugreev was doubtful that anyone could defeat Vali. To make his point, he took Ram to see the remains of the demon that Vali defeated in the cave.  The mere skeleton was as huge as a mountain! Sensing Sugreev's need for reassurance, Lord Ram flicked the skeleton with his big toe and sent it flying for miles. Impressed but not fully convinced, Sugreev asked Lord Ram to uproot a tree with a single arrow. Lord Ram sent his arrow flying into a grove of nearby trees and uprooted not one or two or even three trees. He uprooted seven trees with a single arrow and then had the arrow return to his quiver! Sugreev was overjoyed and thoroughly convinced.

Will be continued...
Thank you for supporting the Hanuman Temple. Come and take Lord Hanuman's darshan in the wonderful Hanuman Cultural Center.
 
Jai Hanuman!
