How Hanuman Saved Lakshman's Life? | Mythological Story

Once upon a time when Lakshmana was severely wounded during the battle against Ravana, Hanuman is sent to fetch the Sanjeevani, a powerful life-restoring herb, from Dronagiri mountain, in the Himalayas, to revive him.

The journey of finding the herb was not easy. Ravana knew that if Lakshmana dies, his enemy Rama would probably give up, and so he dispatches the sorcerer Kalanemi to intercept Hanuman. Kalanemi, in the guise of a sage, deceives Hanuman, but Hanuman uncovers his plot with the help of an apsara, whom he rescues from her accursed state as a crocodile.

Hanuman And The Sanjeevini Booti | Mythological Story

Ravana, upon learning that Kalanemi has been killed by Hanuman, summons Surya to rise before its appointed time. The reason was that the physician Sushena had said that Lakshmana would perish if untreated by daybreak. Hanuman realizes the danger, however, and, becoming many times his normal size, detains the Sun God to prevent the break of day. He then resumes his search for the precious herb.

What Hanuman was looking for was the mountain Dronagiri. On the way, he asked an old lady, the address for the mountain. Upon reaching it, Hanuman started climbing the mountain. However, it was not easy to find the herb. There were so many herbs, so many trees, and plants that looked alike. The time remaining was less and Hanuman had to do something quickly.

He didn't waste much time and took the whole Mountain on his left hand. He flew back to Rama.
Sushena then identifies and administers the herb, and Lakshmana is saved. Rama embraces Hanuman, declaring him as dear to him as his own brother. Hanuman releases Surya from his grip, and asks forgiveness, as the Sun was also his Guru.
