Sunderkand is a chapter from the Ramcharitmanas which is written by the revered poet Goswami Tulsidas. It is one of the seven kands (sections) of what constitutes the epic Ramayana and it is believed that reciting Sunderkand on a regular basis can help ward off evils, remove obstacles in path and bestows one with happiness and prosperity. Sunderkand is one such text that mentions about a devotee’s victory. It highlights how Lord Hanuman crossed the ocean and survived the obstacles during his journey to Lanka to find Sita Maa.
