After trio, Ram Sita and Laxman came back to Ayodhya, Sita (Janki) taking out her priceless necklace put in neck of Hanuman as reward. Hanuman looking at necklace started breaking it beads with his mouth. Seeing this, someone tried to stop Hanuman. Hanuman said that I am trying to find if the name of my Lord Ram His idle is present therein. Anything which does not have name and idle of Ram and Sita it is of no use for me. Questioner asked if the name and idle of Ram & Sita is present in His (Hanuman’s) body. Immediately, Hanuman ripped open his breast by his nails and Ram and Sita with crown sitting on a throne were seen. (Gist is derived from “Kalyan” printed by Gita press Gorakhpur)
