Hanuman and Kalanemi

Demon Kalanemi was deputed by Ravana to kill or obstruct Hanuman who was on his way to Himalayas to bring Mrita Sanjeevani (medicinal herbs to rescue Lakshman).

Kalanemi found the orders of Ravana against the rules of battle. He objected to it as it was cowardice and cheating. But Ravana did not agree and Kalanemi thought that better than serving Ravana it was to get killed at the hands of a Sri Ram Bhakt.
Kalanemi sets off for the Himalayas and produces a lake, a temple, a garden and he himself appears in the garb of an ascetic. Hanuman who passes through the area asks the ascetic for permission to quench his thirst.
Hanuman enters the lake, where an alligator, an Apsara (divine being) under a curse, takes hold of his foot. Hanuman easily overpowers and kills the alligator. The Apsara is released of the curse and informs Hanuman that the ascetic is a demon in disguise.
Hanuman then slays Kalanemi and the demon dies remembering Sri Ram’s name.

Baba Hari Dass Teachings

People easily drop out from small setbacks. Firmness of aim automatically brings faith. Without faith, the aim can't be stable.

We have to be honest to ourselves in our spiritual life.
It is always a desire, which pulls the mind out in the world taking various forms. Sometimes the form of desire appears as if very spiritual, but deep inside, there is a desire of name, fame, etc.
The biggest obstacle to Self-realization is the deluded mind. The mind which is colored by our ego, attachment and desire.
