Ordered by Sugriva to greet unknown princes he goes,
How to mask shape and art of diplomacy he knows.
Then later to search for Rama’s missing wife sent,
Overcoming obstacles in path into Lanka he went.
When finally spotting Sita ahead in his way,
Determined initial approach, knew just what to say.
When abandoning his brother to Rama Vibhishana turned,
Monkeys uncertain but his sincerity Hanuman affirmed.
In pleasing his friends Hanuman always succeeds,
But in praising him properly I don’t know how to proceed.
A keen observer, what’s in one’s heart he can detect.
I hope that this humble offering my dearest Hanuman accepts.
