Sundarkand Path

Sunderkand is the fifth chapter of the Hindu holy book called ‘Ramayan’.

Rama sets out towards Lanka to search for Sita. He and his army stop at the banks at Rameshwar to plan on how to cross the sea. Jamwant reminds Shree Hanumanji that he has the divine power of flying. Shree Hanumanji sets out towards Lanka in search of Sitaji. This is the commencement of Sunderkand.

On the way Hanumanji meets lots of obstacles in the form of the she-demons Sursa and Lankini. However He successfully reaches Lanka by overpowering them. On reaching Lanka He meets Vibhishan (brother of Ravana) who tells Hanumanji about the critical situation of Sitaji and about Ashok Vatika.

Hanumanji meets Sitaji and shows her the proof of being the ambassador of Shree Rama. He then destroys the Ashok Vatika (garden) upon which Ravan gets annoyed and sends his sons to kill Him. They overpower Hanumanji and He is brought in front of Ravan. Ravan orders his followers to light a fire on his tail. Hanumanji escapes and sets fire to all of Lanka. Hanumanji then goes to meet Sitaji and says He will come with Lord Ram to rescue her.

Hanumanji returns to Lord Ram and narrates the incident. Upon this Rama starts his journey towards Lanka by creating Ram setu (Ram Bridge) on the sea and enters Lanka.

This is the Sunderkand narrated in verses and poetry form.
