Unseen power of God
: Though it may appear that the cycle of nature, the functioning of the universe, the enormous human potential, etc. happen of their own accord, they actually manifest the presence of an unseen power. A rational mind may think, “I am doing all this. Where is the role of God here?” But at some point of time each individual comes to terms with this unseen power. Lord Krishna refers to this “unseen force” in the entire universe as the “divine effect.”
This force cannot be described but it can be felt, and this is exemplified in the manner in which Hanuman went about in his mission to search for Sita, said Keeranur Sri Ramamurthy in a lecture. He faced hurdles but he also overcame them with divine grace. Hanuman is a realised soul who recognises the divine couple in Rama and Sita. Hanuman was in the group led by Angada that was to go southwards to search for Sita.
With the vast ocean ahead, the monkeys are worried, exhausted and clueless as to how to go about the search. They run into Sampati, Jatayu's brother and learn from him that Sita is in Lanka as a captive of Ravana. The monkeys breathe the air of confidence on hearing this good news. But a big challenge still remains. How is the ocean to be crossed?
At this juncture, Jambhavan extols Hanuman's powers and virtues. Hanuman realises his potential and assumes a huge form to cross the ocean. During his flight, he faces hurdles from three sources • a relative/ friend, celestial interference and from the enemy. The first was from a friend, the mountain Mainaka, which wished to extend hospitality to him. Not wanting to waste any time, Hanuman thanks the mountain and carries on.
The second hurdle comes in the form of a sea monster Surasa, sent by the celestials who wanted to test his strength. She challenges him to enter her mouth; Hanuman cleverly outwits her by assuming a huge form and then reducing his size so as to enter her mouth and come out through her ear.
Hanuman then overcomes the third hurdle • the enemy, a rakshas by name Simhika, who guarded Lanka.
