Mahabharat Chapter 37 Bhima Met Hanuman

Chapter 37 Bhima Met Hanuman

Draupadi constantly voiced complaints: “Without Arjuna, this Kamyaka forest is not as lovely. Without Arjuna, I am unable to enjoy life.”

Draupadi’s misery at being separated from Arjuna, who had travelled to the Himalayas in search of heavenly weapons, was felt by the other Pandavas.

Draupadi heard Bhimasena remark: “Blessed woman, I share your sentiments regarding Arjuna, and hearing what you have to say fills me with compassion and affection. This stunning woodland appears lonesome without Arjuna. Without seeing Arjuna, my mind cannot be at ease. Hey Sahadeva, how are you doing?”

Said Sahadeva: “Without Arjuna, this hermitage appears to be deserted. We’ll test whether a change of scenery will make it easier for us to deal with the anguish of being apart.”

Speaking to his priest Dhaumya, Yudhishthira said: “My younger brother Arjuna has been dispatched to acquire heavenly weapons. That brave and skillful hero hasn’t shown up yet. Since it is obvious that Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, and Aswatthama would support the sons of Dhritarashtra in their battle, we have dispatched him to the Himalayas to get weapons from the ruler of the gods, Indra. Karna has a burning desire to battle Arjuna and is aware of the secret of celestial weapons. Since there is no other way to destroy the Kaurava warriors, I have dispatched Arjuna in order to win Indra’s favour and obtain weapons from him. We can’t live here joyfully because we sent him on a really challenging mission, and we miss him at all our usual hangouts.
I want to go because I think it will help us cope with being apart more effectively. Could you recommend a place we could go?”
Dhaumya spoke of several woods and sacred sites. The Pandavas visited each of those locations in an effort to somewhat ease the pain of separation.

They invested a lot of time on their journey, listening to the traditions that made each site holy. Draupadi would frequently become weary from traversing the mountains and woods. When his son Ghalotkacha was available, Bhima would assist them, encourage them, and make their work simple.

They encountered a horrible jungle with a hard, steep route during their wanderings across the Himalayan highlands.
Concerned, Yudhishthira informed Bhima that Draupadi would be terribly distressed by the route, but he himself would proceed with Nakula and the sage Lomasa.

He advised Draupadi to remain in Gangadwara with Bhima and Sahadeva. Bhima wouldn’t concur. He claimed that his brother should have learned from the agony of losing Arjuna how much more he would feel if he lost Sahadeva, Draupadi, and Bhima.
Additionally, Bhima was unable to leave Yudhishthira unattended in this dangerous jungle full of wild animals, demons, and rakshasas. Although the path was challenging, he could easily carry Draupadi through its most challenging sections. Sahadeva and Nakula could both be carried by him.

Bhima spoke these things, and Yudhishthira hugged him, blessed him, and wished him more physical fortitude. Draupadi grinned and addressed Yudhishthira, saying: “No one has to help me. I can walk. Do not worry about me.”

They arrived in Kulinda, the Subahu kingdom in the Himalayas. They graciously accepted the honours bestowed upon them by that king and took some time to relax.

Later, they made their way to Narayanasrama’s lovely woodland and camped there.

A lovely flower was once carried by a breeze coming from the northeast near Draupadi. When Draupadi received it in her hands, she was so enchanted by its aroma and beauty that she ardently displayed it to Bhima.

“Visit this bloom today. What a lovely scent! How adorable! I’ll give Yudhishthira this now. Bring some of these flowers. This plant ought to be grown in our Kamyaka woodland.” To present the flower to Yudhishthira, Draupadi rushed.

Bhima set off in search of the plant because he wanted to delight his lover Draupadi.

Without giving the wild animals that crossed his path a second consideration, he walked alone towards the direction from where the scent appeared to be carried by the air.

He then arrived to a garden of plantain trees at the base of a mountain where he encountered a large monkey obstructing his way and glowing like a flaming fire.

He shouted at the animal in an attempt to scare it away from his path. It drawled and opened its eyelids just partially “I’m laying here because I’m sick. How come you woke me up? I am only an animal, whereas you are a clever human. It is necessary for the logical man to be compassionate toward animals since they are inner beings. I’m worried you don’t understand what is good and wrong. So who are you? Whither are you bound? Along this mountain trail, which is the gods’ way, further travel is not possible. Men cannot go beyond this point. Take what you want from the local produce, and if you’re sensible, return in peace.”

Unaccustomed to being treated so casually, Bhima became enraged and yelled: “You monkey, who are you to engage in such lofty rhetoric? I am a Kuru ancestor and a son of Kunti. I am a kshatriya hero. Recognize that I am the Wind God’s son. Now leave the route; attempt to stop me now at your risk.”

When the monkey heard these comments, he just grinned and replied, “I am a monkey, as you say, but if you try to force a way, you will come to ruin.”

Remarked Bhima: “I don’t want your advise, and it doesn’t matter if I end up in ruin if I do. I will make you get up and move if you don’t.”

The primate responded: “Being only a very elderly monkey, I lack the power to rise up. Jump over me if you have to go at all costs.”

Stated Bhima: “There is nothing that could be simpler, yet the Bible forbids it. If not, I should leap over both of you and the mountain in a single motion like Hanuman did when he crossed the ocean.”

The monkey said, appearing surprised: “That is that Hanuman who sailed over the seas, O finest of men? I’d want to know his tale, if you know it.”

Bhima bellowed and yelled: “Have you ever heard of Hanuman, my older brother, who travelled across an ocean one hundred yojanas wide in search of Sita, Rama’s wife? In terms of bravery and strength, I match him.

That’s all I have to say, so get moving and make room so I won’t injure you.”

The primate replied: “Be patient, great hero. Be as powerful as you are soft, and show mercy to the elderly and helpless. I am so old and frail that I lack the strength to get myself up. Since you are reluctant to jump over me, kindly push my tail aside so that you may create room for yourself.”

Bhima had the brilliant idea to drag the monkey by its tail and felt immensely proud of his tremendous power. But, to his surprise, after using all of his might, he was unable to move it in the slightest.

He locked his teeth and clenched every muscle till his sinews snapped and he began to perspire. However, I was still unable to move that tail even the slightest amount, either up, down, or sideways.

He bowed his head in shame before voicing a contrite question: “Are you okay? Please pardon me and let me know if you are a Siddha, deity, or Gandharva.” Bhima, like other powerful men, talked to his respected elder like a subordinate when he encountered someone who was more powerful than himself.

Hanuman answered: “Know that I am your brother, O mighty-armed Pandava, even that Hanuman, the Wind God’s son, whom you described earlier. You will face peril if you continue down this route, which leads to the spiritual realm where Yakshas and Rakshasas reside. For this reason, I’m stopping you. Beyond this, no one can survive. However, the Saugandhika plant you were looking for can be found in this creek with its depths.”

Bhima was delightedly transported: “Being able to meet my brother makes me feel like the luckiest man alive. I would want to see how you crossed the ocean” and he bowed down to Hanuman.

Hanuman grinned, started to grow larger, and took a solid stance in front of the globe, appearing to be a mountain filling the surroundings. When Bhima finally got to meet this older brother in his heavenly form after just hearing about it up until that point, he was overjoyed. He shielded his eyes because he could not stand the brilliant light coming from that person.

“Bhima, my body can grow much more in the presence of my foes,” remarked Hanuman. Hanuman then shrank back to his original size by contracting his body.

He gave Bhimasena a gentle embrace.

When Hanuman hugged Bhima, according to Bhagavan Vyasa, he felt entirely renewed and grew more stronger than before.
Hanuman remarked: “Go to your home, hero. When you’re in need, keep me in mind. When I hugged you, I experienced the same joy that I had in the past when I had the good fortune to touch Sri Rama’s holy body. Ask for any favour you desire.”

Remarked Bhima: “The Pandavas should be grateful since I got to visit you. We will definitely defeat our foes thanks to your power and inspiration.”

This is the parting benediction that Hanuman delivered to his brother: “My voice will join yours when you roar like a lion on the battlefield, terrifying your adversaries. I’ll be there riding the banner of your brother Arjuna’s chariot. You’ll win the battle.”

Bhima was shown by Hanuman the adjacent creek where the Saugandhika flowers that he had been looking for bloomed.
Bhima immediately thought about Draupadi, who was waiting for his return. He quickly gathered the flowers and went back to see her.
