For Hanuman – 58

Though making offer with utmost care,

Still insults Hanuman had to bear.

 

Since proposed to take her on his back,

Sita said that intelligence he lacked.

 

Time for ego guarding not now,

Sita looking only to protect her vow.

 

Real love means you don’t mind what they say,

So Hanuman dear to Sita still to this day.

For Hanuman – 57

How Janaka’s daughter’s hopes to save,

No one advice to Hanuman gave.

 

Since in journey to Lanka alone,

For decisions to use instincts his own.

 

Devotee of Rama never intelligence without,

Thus for Hanuman’s success never a doubt.

 

Same intelligence not in me to use,

But in glorifying him still I choose.

For Hanuman – 55

As full knowledge in him resided,

To speak in Sanskrit he decided.

 

That he was educated would be known,

Unique presence to Sita to be shown.

 

Of course for God the language is meant,

Thus words of praise for Rama he sent.

 

Through invoking her beloved’s name,

Sita to know from where Hanuman came.

For Hanuman – 51

To Lanka with enthusiasm to go,

But how Rama’s wife was he to know.

 

No pictures there for him to align,

Could only use assumption and outward sign.

 

A distressed princess of body very lean,

In Ashoka grove by Hanuman was seen.

 

The pain from husband being apart,

That this was Sita idea to start.

For Hanuman – 50

Knowledge of creatures large and small,

Used in service when Rama did call.

 

In him full wisdom of Vedas three,

In movement with eyes of shastra to see.

 

Holder of every mystic perfection,

Called upon when in Lanka’s direction.

 

All such talents used when he searched,

Finally found Sita when on tree was perched.

Hanuman – 49

Shri Hanuman today known for strength,

And crossing ocean of amazing length.

 

That his journey was easy don’t think,

Length alone to cause despair’s sink.

 

Without success for a long time go,

And doubt surely anyone to know.

 

His resolve the trait most remarkable,

Desire to please Rama forever indestructible.
