Hanuman the Mighty

At the order of Phra Isuan (Isvara), Phra Pai shoots Phra Isuan’s divine power and weapons into Sawaha’s mouth. Phra Isuan wishes her to give birth to a son who can help Phra Ram (Rama)

On Tuesday in the third month of the Year of Tiger, Sawaha gives birth to a white monkey – Hanuman, with four faces and eight arms. His hair is diamonds and his fags are crystal. He magically yields stars, the moon and the sun from his mouth when he yawns. Sawaha orders her son to join in the army of Phra Ram – an incarnation of Phra Narai.

While flying in the sky, Hanuman spots a garden owned by Phra Uma (Phra Isuan’s consort). There, he recklessly eats and throws fruits. His misbehavior enrages Phra Uma, who cures him, reducing his power by half. She says the curse will vanish only after he meets
Phra Ram and he touches Hanuman’s back thrice.

Once the chief warrior Hanuman volunteers to survey routes to Longka City. Phra Ram asks Hanuman to take a ring and breast cloth to Sida (Sita), Phra Ram’s consort.

When Hanuman meets Sida, she is about to hang herself, so he rescues her. He asks refuses in case scandalous words are spread. Thus, Hanuman is asked by Sida to tell Phra Ram to rescue her. Hanuman gives her his promise. Before leaving Longka City, he kills Sahaskuman, Tosakanth’s 1,000 offsprings.

Hanuman volunteers to bring a box of Tosakanth’s heart, which is kept by Kobut Richi, to Phra Ram, and asks the Richi to take him to Tosakanth. By Hanuman’s spell, the Richi gives Hanuman the demon’s heart. Hanuman pretends to submit himself to Tosakanth,
so the demon king adopts him as his son.

During the battle, Phra Ram shoots Prommas arrow to kill Tosakanth, and Hanuman destroys Tosakanth’s heart and ends his life. Thus, Phra Ram wins the battle and appoints Hanuman “Phraya Anuchit Chakkrit Pipatpongsa” then sends him off to rule Nopburi City.
