Hanuman on the mission!

Scene 1.  the way the picture depicts Hanuman In Ramayana is different than it appears. He seems to be the first missionary of His kind.  Think on this. Hanumana Goes to Lanka and creates havoc by placing fire / burning palaces in Lanka ! (the Golden Lanka!) . This looks good in imagining the same way (people running here and there, the forces of Ravana trying to catch Hanuman, etc etc.)

However, the orther possibilty goe like below : – Hanumana instead of burning palaces and putting on fire, started converting the soldiers/ believers of Ravana into Rama’s followers. This created havoc in the state of Lanka, which was thought to be strong, mettalic in strength and the lustre started fading with the arrival of Hanumana.

Scene 2. Hanuman caught by Ravana’s soldiers and brought in his palace. Here the serial depicted Hanumana, being abused by Ravana, praises Rama and raises to higher level than that of the Royal throne of Ravana by enlarging his tail. If you think, again in the same direction as above, it would come like, Ravana abuses Hanuamana for which the followers of Hanumana, (his tail) come to His rescue and they outnumbered the soldiers of Ravana in His palace!

    On what basis do you say that rakshasas in Lanka started believing Hanuman?
    As per Valmiki Ramayana and the available scripts, only Vibhishan and Trijeta opposed Sita’s kidnap and Vibhishan did it openly. There was no one courageous to speak against Ravan in Lanka.
    Please do not use the term ‘Hanuman started converting the soldiers/ believers of Ravana’ – this reminds us about selfish Christian missionaries who are engaed in conversion.

      Christian missionaries are engaged in conversion from last few centuries / decades. How can’t we think of the way they started progressing was deviced somewhere else. Conversion has been there by long time, just the methods were different. SOme did it by convincing ; others did it by force / brutal killings. There is also an example of conversion in the charitra of Shree Shivaji Maharaaj. How come can one conclude that this way was not present in the older India, which had more area than present. Buddhism, Jainism and other sects of it also tried to influence it; still there was a Shankaracharya who did it a thousand years before and if time comes, a Shankaracharya will be born after a thousand years afterwards.
