motivating, inspiring, and transforming people (human resources)

His mission was to locate
Sita there and give her Lord Ram’s message.
When it became clear that Sita was in Lanka,
Jamvant asked Hanuman to go there. He helped
him in realizing his true potential and motivated
him to go in the enemy’s camp.
Once mentally prepared for
the job and reached there, first thing which
Hanuman did was to completely analyze the
situation in Lanka. He did a complete study
about the Lankans, assessing their strengths
and weaknesses, the various threats and
opportunities which he had in the enemy’s
