SALASARJI

 
WAR
With the quest of rescuing Sita, Shri Ram, Lakshman and the Vanar army marched towards Lanka.In Lanka, after Hanumanji's departure, Ravan's brother Vibheeshana tried to reason with Ravan, explaining to him the truth of Hanumanji's words. But Ravan would not listen to reason and stubbornly stood to his ground.
Wishing to side with the truth, Vibheeshana left Ravan and Lanka and surrendered to Shri Ram. However, there was much confusion and disagreements within Shri Ram's companions whether Vibheeshana should be accepted or not. It was Hanumanji's opinion on Vibheeshana that swung the argument in his favour, and Shri Ram accepted him and his followers.
The Vanar army started to build a bridge across Lanka, it was to be seized. The War between Shri Ram and Ravan began. Part way through the war, Ravan began to realize that he could not compete and hope to win against Shri Ram's army. He had lost his sons, and all the brothers who had fought in the war. He then sent for Ahi Ravan, his brother who was the king of the Nether world. Ahi Ravan agreed to help him fight against Shri Ram and Lakshman.
In the middle of the night, he assumed the form of Vibheeshana and reached the place where Lord Ram and Lakshman were sleeping. Hanumantha was standing guard at this cave. Seeing Ahi Ravan, he took him to be Vibheeshana and allowed him to enter the cave. Ahi Ravan quietly took Shri Ram and Lakshman and carried them to his kingdom.
He then started to make preparations for sacrificing them. At dawn, when Hanumanji came to know of this deceitful doing, he at once proceeded to the Nether world. He took a tiny form and seeing an opportunity, killed Ahi Ravan. He then took Shri Ram and Lakshman back to Lanka.
