Srimad Sundarakandam !! Lord Anjaneya witnesses Goddess Sita in Ashoka Vatika !!

Jai Sriman Narayana !!
Thatho Malina Samveetham Rakshasibhi: Samavrutham
Upavasa Krusham Dheenam Ni:shwasanthim Puna: Puna:
Dhadharsha Shukla Pakshadhou Chandra Rekha Mivamalam.
Tham Neelakeshim Bhimboshtim Sumadhyam Suprathishtam
Sitham Padhma Palashakshim Manmathasya Rathim Yadha.
Dushkaram Kuruthe Ramo Ya Imam Mathakasinim
Seetham Vina Mahabhahur Muhurthamapi Jeevathi.
Anjaneya remembered the words of Sampathi, he once again paid salutations to Vasu, Rudra, Aditya, Ashwini Kumaras, Lord Indra, Lord Yama, Lord Vayu Lord Chandra, Lord Surya, Maruth Ganas and Sugriva along with Sri Rama and Lakshmana.   Anjaneya elegantly moved towards Ashoka Vatika.  He paid obeisance to all the deities, Lord Brahma, Lord Agni, Lord Varuna and sincerely prayed for the success in his mission to locate Sita.  Anjaneya found a fabulous garden full of trees of Sal, Ashoka, Champaka, Uddhalaka, Mango, Sandal, Santhana, Karnolara, Kimshuka, Punnaga, Sapthaparna, Vakula, creepers of Water Lillies, and flowers of various fragrances.  He witnessed various species of birds gracefully moving through the garden, the whole ambiance of Ashoka Vatika was effervescent and vibrant.  Anjaneya moved thorough the beautiful woodland, the trees were showered flowers upon him as a sign of welcome,  Anjaneya appeared like a mountain of flowers in the middle of Ashoka Vatika with all those beautiful flowers of vibrant colors.  Anjaneya meticulously observed the Ashoka Vatika and its beautiful garden made of precious stones and gems.  Ashoka Vatika shone with all those sparkling metals and gems.  The beautiful ponds embellished with pearls, diamonds, corals, crystals, gold, etc.. Surrounded by enchanting birds of Chakravaha, Swans, peacock, Cuckoos etc…there were full of flowers of various fragrances and beautiful trees bearing fruits stretched all over the place.  At once, Anjaneya noticed a Shimshupa tree and its golden platform, he climbed effortlessly on the huge tree with his well-built figure with the firm belief that Sita Devi would appear before his eyes.  Anjaneya reverentially remembered a chaste woman like Sita would prefer to remain close to Gardens and ponds where she could perform oblations at the time sunset.


Anjaneya was spellbound at the beauty of Ashoka Vatika which has the close resemblance of Chaithraratha, Garden of Lord Kubera and Nandana, Garden of celestial Gandarvas.  Anjaneya observed the entire Ashoka Vatika seated on the Shimshupa tree, instantaneously spotted an unblemished woman in her mucky saffron clothes, surrounded by the demons.  She looks awful to Anjaneya due to anguish, continuous starving and lack of sleep.  She was miserable; her appearance was like a waning moon.  Anjaneya identified her as Sita from her captivating divine physical features, she was in a wretched state due to the separation from her dearest husband, and she was vulnerable shedding tears of utter desolation. Anjaneya noticed the ornaments of Sita mentioned by Rama stretched all over the golden platform.  Anjaneya affirmed that she must be the chaste woman Sita and dearest wife of Rama, whose appearances were same as described by Rama.  Anjaneya’s joy had no bounds, he mentally praised Rama.
Jai Sriman Narayana !!
