SALASARJI

 
SANJEEVANI
During this war, Hanumanji's strength and valor were sky-high and a great help to Shri Ram. He crushed many rakshasas, and even Ravan marveled at his strength. Indrajit, Ravan's son, was one of the bravest members of the Ravan army. He once shot the Brahmashtra, a missile with the power of Lord Brahma, the God of Creation. The entire army of Vanars fell down unconscious. Lakshman also fainted. Hanumantha also faltered for a moment, but then recovered.
Jambavantha, the old minister, was semi-conscious. He advised to arrange for a 'Vaidh' - Doctor from Lanka. Hanuman bought the Chief Vaidh - Sushen from Lanka and he advised that only the herb - Sanjeevani would restore the conciousness of all if brought before the dawn. Rama & Jambavantha told Hanumantha that he was the only one who could save them now.
They asked Hanumanji to go to the Sumeru Mountain in the Himalayas and get the medicinal herb Sanjeevani. This herb would restore the army once again. Hanumantha flew off to the Himalayas immediately and went in search of the herb. However, being in a hurry he was unable to distinguish it, and instead, shacking the whole mountain free, he lifted it up and flew back with it to Lanka.
Such was the power of the herb, that when Hanumanji flew over the war ground with the mountain, the very smell of the herb restored all the unconscious warriors. However, as Ravan's dead had been thrown into the ocean, at his instructions, no one rakshasa was revived by the herb.
Having achieved his purpose, Hanumantha flew back and replaced the mountain. The war ultimately came to an end, bringing with it victory for Shri Ram. Hanumanji played a very important role in this war and victory would have been doubtful had it not been for him.
