They started to discuss who could take a leap long enough to cross this 100 yojana long ocean and return successfully. One claimed he could jump up to 10 yojanas. Another 50 yojanas, and another 99 yojanas. Another one said that he can cross the 100 yojanas but was not sure if he can return. Whether one jumps 1, 99 or 100 with no return – the result is the same, failure. None of them were good enough for the task. Jambavan reminded Hanuman of his immense, divine capabilities. Hanuman gained courage and what he did next was beyond what anyone expected. He expanded himself, crossed the ocean with all its hurdles along the way, located Sitha Devi, established perfect communication with Her, killed many rakshasas, and finally conveyed Sri Rama’s message to Ravana with valour, humour and intellect. He then flew back to report to Sugriva and Sri Rama.
