Sri Rama's intention throughout was to act as human being while on earth. So, Hanuman following

Sri Rama also acted & spoke similarly as a human being. Even Sita (the duplicate) acted as a

human being. Hanuman met this Sita in Ashoka vana, spoke to her & gave Sri Rama's signet ring

(angulIyaM). Whatever ornaments original Sita wore on her body were present on Maya Sita in

Lanka. All the duplicate ornaments looked exactly like the original because of the Divine will.

After conversation with Hanuman, Sita gave him her Choodamani (head jewel) to be handed over

to Sri Rama.


Explanatory Notes:


Sri Rama conducted himself as an ordinary human being, not as an avatara of God. Following his

foot steps, Hanuman also behaved as a human being; in terms of meeting & conversing with Sita

although he knew that she was not real Sita. All his conduct was not due to ajnana, but because of

awareness of the purpose of Sri Rama's avatara.

Secondly, eventhough he was told by Sampathi that Sita was under Simsupa tree in Lanka, he

followed the instruction of Sri Rama faithfully & consciously because of his unquestionable faith in

his master which stands as an example for his bhAghavatha dharma.

The credit in duplicating the ornaments which the real Sita wore goes to her only. The Maya Sita

while coming to Lanka with Ravana threw most of them, in a bundle among the Vanaras in

Kishkindha except the Choodamani which she gave now to Hanuman.

The Abhimana devatha for the Choodamani is Mukhya prana. Sending this through its own

Abhimana devatha to Sri Rama is of special significance.This crest jewel, Choodamani is worn on

the head by Sita, & her sending it in return to the signet ring of Sri Rama suggests that she is the

servant of the Lord. Sri Rama sending his ring suggests that he will extend his helping hand to all

those who surrender to him with utter humility & devotion that He is the savior & protector of all.
