Ram Charita Manas

Kishkinda Kanda

Kishkinda Kanda is the fourth chapter in the epic book, Shri Ram Charita Manas. it comprises 1 shloka, 30 dohas, 1 sorta, 2 chhands, and 30 chaupais.

Sugreev lived in the Rishyamukha hills in exile because he was driven away from Kishkindha by his elder brother Vali and was also robbed of his Wife. Sugreev saw the two princes from Ayodhya and thought they were sent by his brother to kill him. He sent Lord Hanuman in the guise of a hermit to know the purpose of their visit. After hearing the story of Lord Rama and Laxmana, Hanuman took them to sugreev as he thought he can help him get his kingdom back.

Shri Rama and Laxmana met with Sugriva and told them about themselves and their quest to find Maa Sita. Sugreev and Hanuman upon hearing their story, vows to aid Rama to find Maa Sita. Sugreev describes the tragic tale of how he lost his kingdom to his elder brother, King Bali. Sugreev and Lord Rama agree on a proposition that if Lord Rama helps him get his kingdom back, he will send his Vanara[Monkey] army to all ends of Earth to find Maa Sita.

Lord Rama accepts this and kills King Bali in a duel and helps sugreev get his kingdom back. As agreed, Sugreev summons the monkey who came from the Himalayas, Vidhya region, and from east to west, millions of monkeys from caves and forests gathered in Kiskindha. Sugreev distributed the army each led by a veteran leader and commands them to go and find Maa Sita in all directions.

The huge vanara army went across all ends of the Earth, from north Asia to Europe, from Japan to the lower Earth in South America, and to all places where any men, animals, or demons live or landmass existed. He trusted the son of the wind god, Lord Hanuman more than anyone as he was well aware of the geography, and code of conduct befitting the place and time. Lord Rama also bestowed his trust in Hanuman and gave his ring to Hanuman to show for a sign if he finds Maa Sita.
