Story of Hanuman and Jambumali in Ramayana

The story of Hanuman and Jambumali in Ramayana happened when Hanuman reached Lanka in search of Mata Sita. Jambumali was the son of demon Prahasta and lived in a lake of liquor. Ravana made a lake of liquor for him, as he was restless and would pick up a fight on the slightest pretext. The other demons were unable to face the wrath of the powerful demon.

Jambumali was woken up by the soldiers of Ravana and they reported to him about the serious situation in Lanka and the havoc created by Hanuman.

Jambumali soon arrived in the court of Ravana and here the demon king asked him to kill Hanuman. Jambumali dashed off to Ashoka Vatika where Hanuman was last spotted.

The demon shot arrows at Hanuman but they were easily warded off. They then fought with crude weapons like trees, rocks a, d mountains. They hurled them on each other.  But all this had no effect on Hanuman.

Jambumali then grew in size. Hanuman was now only up to his knees.

Jambumali thought of crushing Hanuman. But when he loo…

All worship offered with a pure heart is valid – Swami Dayananda Saraswati

Living begins when one contributes something that will bring about more happiness, more wisdom and more freedom. Until then, one merely drags one’s life.

If I were to choose one aspect of Hinduism, it would be the teaching that God is the only reality, which can be invoked through any name or form. All worship offered with a pure heart is valid. There can be million forms of worship, offered to any name or form that you choose. This is the universal outlook of Hinduism. Hinduism is a very profound religion, not based in simple beliefs. God is to be understood, not just believed in.

The Veda says that you are the whole and that you are already free and you have to know that. Your being away from the whole is by wrong thinking.
Swami Dayananda Saraswati (1930-2015), founder of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, teacher of Vedanta
