Hanumaan Brings Raam's Ring
Once it so happened that Raam was sitting on His throne that His ring fell on the floor. He bent down to pick it up but it went to Paataal Lok. Now who could bring it from Paataal Lok? Only Hanumaan had the power to be come so tine that he could go to Paataal Lok and bring it from there. But where was he? So everybody looked for him, and they found him, they told him the matter. Hanumaan was ever fready to serve Raam. So as soon as he heard this he set off to Paataal Lok to bring Raam's ring.
He assumed the micro form and entered the floor. He arrived in Paataal Lok and started looking for Raam's ring. In the meantime he saw a person bringing a large plate filled with many rings. He looked at those rings to find his master's ring, but he was surprised to see that all rings were marked with the name of Raam. He stopped that person and asked - "How come that all rings belong to Raam?" The person replied - "There have been may Raam and all rings belong to Raam. What do you want?" Hanumaan said - "My master Raam's ring fell on the floor o Earth and it came here. I have come here to take it." The person said - "These all belong to Raam, you may recognize your Raam's ring and take it."
Hanumaan started looking at them, But whichever ring he looked at, it looked like Raam's. Hanumaan got worried as which was the real Raam's ring. After a while, when he could not identify the real ring of Raam, he picked up a ring randomly and soon came to Earth. But when he came up on the Earth, he did not find Raam. He asked about Him where was He? People told him that He had left for His Dhaam. Hanumaan just remained standing there.
