Lord Hanuman Story
 
In the last newsletter, all the vanaras had failed to find Devi Sita within the time set by King Sugreev. They had failed - even the group lead by Prince Angada.
 

Still distraught at having missed King Sugreev's deadline for locating Devi Sita, the vanaras were lamenting their fate.  Utterly dejected, Prince Angada wished at least for a noble death like Jatayu.

Nearby, the eagle king Sampati heard the mention of his brother and asked the vanaras to tell the circumstances of Jatayu's death. The vanaras told him of Lord Ram and Ravana's despicable abduction of Devi Sita.  Sampati was determined to assist the vanaras in their mission and avenge his brother's death.  Using his keen vision, he located Devi Sita about 1200 miles away on the island of Lanka.

Overjoyed to have some news of Sita, the vanaras wanted to immediately verify it with their own eyes. But who amongst them could cross such a huge distance? One by one, each vanara stated the distance he could jump. While few could make the jump, none could remain strong enough for the return journey. The vanaras were stuck once again!

Meanwhile, the great warrior bear Jambavan approached Sri Hanuman who was seated some distance away from the rest of the group.  Jambavan reminded Hanuman of his many abilities, immense strength, and great courage. He told Hanuman that he and only he was capable of completing this mission successfully. This reminded Hanuman of his true nature and he started to grow in size and glowed with divine radiance.  Then Hanuman agreed to make the journey to Lanka and  find Devi Sita. 

All the vanaras shouted and danced with joy - they had found their hero! Jai Hanuman!

Will be continued...
