Sundarakand Path

We all have been invited to or hosted a Sunderkand Path in our life. One thing we remember is the sweets and prasad we got the Sunderkand. People think that Sunderkand path is just another way of worshipping the almighty. However, this is not completely true, as there are many other benefits to it.

Reading Sundarakand path can give you a lot of benefits in life. Sundarakand is the fifth book in the holy book of Ramayana. Sundarakand is that chapter of Raam-Charit-Manas, which is about Lord Hanuman. Goswami Tulsidas wrote it. Initially, it was in Sanskrit and was composed by Valmiki. Sundarakand is referred to as The Book of Beauty. It is mainly read on Tuesdays and Saturdays, as these are said to be the days of Lord Hanuman.

Sundarakand is the only chapter in the holy book Ramayana in which the hero is Hanuman, not Lord Ram. The whole chapter is based on Lord Hanuman, depicting his adventure and his selflessness. He has been stated as one of the most courageous and great devotees of Ram.

What is Sunderkand Path? 

In this chapter of Ram-Charit Manas, Jambavan reminds Lord Hanuman about his lost memory and the capabilities he possesses. In addition, he is reminded about the supernatural powers and abilities he has. Jambavan reminds Lord Hanuman that he can fly very efficiently and that crossing the mighty ocean is easy. All his capabilities can help him collect information about Seeta, who Raavana has captured. 

Reading and hearing Sunderkand fills a person with positivity and happiness. The importance of SunderKand lies in this itself. If a person is stuck in his problems and does not know what should be done, this path can help him. Since Lord Hanuman was successful in collecting information about Sita, who was in Lanka, this section also tells how witty, bright and intelligent Lord Hanuman was. Sunderkand also tells us about many historical events that took place in the life of Lord Hanuman. Ramayana has seven Kands overall, and each Kand has its significance. The seven Kand characters in the Ramayana are Bala Kand, Ayodhya Kand, Aranya Kand, Kishkindha Kand, Sundara Kand, Yuddha Kand and the last, Uttara Kand.
