duranta vikramasya = possessed of extraordinary valor

AgataM = that has come to you

IshvaraM = also understand that I am capable of

tava kulaxaye = wiping out your entire lineage



Hanuman revealed his identitty as Maruthi, the son of Vayu & the messenger of Sri Rama. He told

him that he was capable of wiping out his entire lineage.


Explanatory Notes:

Hanuman by telling Ravana, that he is capable of wiping out his entire lineage suggests that he is

Yama to him since he is the messenger of Sri Rama.

If you fail to return Sita at once to Sri Rama, you are sure to be killed along with your sons, friends

& relations.


Explanatory Notes:

Hanuman telling that his sons relatives will be killed soon suggests the truth that all those who

hate God are to be destroyed if not immediately at least ultimately. It is imminent.

stand what to speak of you with little strength.

When Brahma & Rudra are no match to stand before Sri Rama. That Ravana who received boons

from Brahma & Rudra is also no match goes without telling.
