This discourse tells you about- 1. How Kalanemi tried to cheat Hanumanji on the way to Dronagiri. 2. How Hanumanji got Dronagiri to Lanka. 3. How Lakshmana was revived.
Hanuman Tok is a beautiful and enchanting Hanuman temple located on a scenic mountain top 11 km from Gangtok, Sikkim. It is believed that Hanumanji rested here for a while on his way to get Sanjeevani from the Himalayas to revive Lakshmana during the battle at Lanka.
Hanumanji rushed towards Dronagiri in the Himalayas from the battlefield in Lanka. He had to get those five herbs from Dronagiri before sunrise. The herbs that Lanka's vaidya Sushena wanted to revive Lakshmana. As Hanumanji was traveling through the sky, he felt very thirsty. As soon as he crossed the sea, he started looking for water.

Hanumanji rushed towards Dronagiri in the Himalayas from the battlefield in Lanka.
He had to get those five herbs from Dronagiri before sunrise.
The herbs that Lanka's vaidya Sushena wanted to revive Lakshmana.
As Hanumanji was traveling through the sky, he felt very thirsty.
As soon as he crossed the sea, he started looking for water.
After some time he could smell the fragrance coming from a yajna kunda.
Hanumanji looked down, it was a Muni's ashrama.
Then water must definitely be there.
There was a Muni there.
Muni said: Oh Pavana-putra! I know you are coming from the battlefield in Lanka.
Don't worry Sri Rama is going to win this battle.
I know everything past present and future.
Sri Rama will win.
And Lakshmana has regained consciousness.
He is normal now.
Sit down let me update you about what all happened in the battlefield after you left.
But, Oh! Sage, I am very thirsty.
Let me have some water first.
Muni gave his kamandalu and said: here take it, you can drink from this.
Hanumanji felt a little suspicious.
Someone's jalapatra such as kamandalu or pancha patra is 100% for exclusive personal use.
You should not share it with someone.
What is this Muni doing, isn't he aware of this?
The Muni also realized he had made a blunder.
Hanumanji said I am very thirsty.
This much water will not satisfy my thirst.
Ok ok, this path here goes to the lake, go there drink as much water as you want, take bath and come back.
I will give you mantra deeksha.
Sushena forgot to tell you.
Without deeksha of special mantras, the herbs that he wanted will not be visible to you.
As Hanumanji got into the lake, a crocodile caught his left leg.
With his right leg, Hanumanji kicked at it really hard.
The crocodile died and from its body, an apsara came out.
She offered pranama to Hanumanji.
She said, I am Dhanyamalini.
You have relieved me from the curse of Rishi Angira.
Once when he was at the lake, I playfully pulled at his leg.
He cursed me to become a crocodile.
Then out of kindness said, that Pavana-putra will come and relieve you from the curse.
I am so grateful to you.
But mind you Hanumanji, there is no ashrama here.
That is not a Muni.
He is mayavi Rakshasa, Kalanemi.
He is trying to delay you.
When Hanumanji came back the mayavi was pretending to be making arrangements for the mantra deeksha.
Hanumanji said let me give guru dakshina first.
Please accept this.
Then caught him in his tail and smashed him on the ground.
Ravana had specifically sent Kalanemi to cause obstacle and delay Hanumanji.
Lakshmana, not reviving was very important for Ravana because with Lakshmana alive Meghanada's life was always in danger.
Hanumanji reached the Himalayas soon and spotted Dronagiri.
But he was not sure which part of the herbs to pick up, root, leaves, or flowers.
He didn't waste time, he picked up the entire Dronagiri and proceeded back.
On the way back Hanumanji got a little lost and was flying above Ayodhya.
Bharata who was at Nandigram thought it must be some mayavi Rakshasa trying to attack Ayodhya.
He took out an arrow with a flat tip and hit Hanumanji in the chest.
Hanumanji fell down unconscious.
Vayudeva stopped Dronagiri in the sky itself.
Soon Bharata realized whom he had shot down and said: if my devotion towards my elder brother is genuine, let Hanuman regain consciousness.
Hanumanji got up.
Bharata took him to the palace.
There Hanumanji met everyone.
And offering pranamas to all, took off for Lanka again.
There he kept Dronagiri down.
Sushena climbed up the mountain and came down with all the herbs he needed.
With them, he revived Lakshmana.
Lord Rama embraced Hanumanji and said: today you have not only saved Lakshmana's life, lives of all of us; mine, Seetha's, and of all them in Ayodhya.
I am so grateful to you.
Glory of Venkatesha
