When Laxmana fell unconscious during the battle with Meghnad, following Jambavan's orders, Hanuman flew to the Himalayas. He landed on a peak between the Kailasa and Rishabha mountains. There, Hanuman began searching for the sanjeevani herb, but since he had no knowledge of herbs he stood confused thinking what to do. An idea dawned on him. He uprooted the whole mountain and holding it in one hand flew back to Lanka.
Everyone was surprised to see Hanuman approach with the gigantic mountain on his hand. Quickly Jambavan plucked the sanjeevani and ground it into a juice. As the juice trickle into Laxmana's mouth, he regained his sense. Rama heaved a sigh of relief. Meanwhile, the other monkeys gathered around Hanuman; some admired him; some felt his muscles while others stood startled. Impressed with Hanuman's effort the gods hailed him and showered their blessings on him.
