Introduction

Sita was both delighted and depressed respectively on hearing Rama’s episode from Hanuma and Rama’s overwhelmed sorrow caused by his dissociation from her. She beseeches Hanuma to arrange for Rama’s arrival to Lanka to meet her within two months, the period remaining out of the time-limit for her survival given by Ravana. Hanuma consoles Seetha, saying that Rama would surely come to see her. He also offers Seetha to carry her on his back to Rama’s presence at Prasravana Mountain. Looking to the small size of Hanuma’s body; Seetha doubts his capability to do it. Then, Hanuma assumes a gigantic form, so as to inspire confidence in Seetha. However, explaining various reasons, Seetha declines to go with him and requests Hanuma to bring her husband to Lanka.
