SundakandNirnay-7 Chudamani Sweekar

Hanuman enters  Lanka,he looks for seeta all over lanka .Hanuman is sarvagnya ,(one who knows all) yet he enacts to look for seeta everywhere as though  in ignorance. Rama being God had vowed to act like a simple human as Rama, to create confusion and dilemma among the adhama jeevas , so also knowing his masters' intention ,Hanuman emulates Rama .

Sampati had already told that he could see the seeta under a shimshupa tree in ashokvan ,[vultures could see long distant objects] despite that Hanuman searches for seetakruti.

Sithakruti ,[it was not original seeta but seetakruti in lanka ] then alongwith her even ornaments too divided into two ,thus chudamani also accompanied seetakruti. Chudamani's abhimani devata is Vayu, vayu himself carried chudamani is worth noting.

Chudamani is worn in head under the hair .It indicates self pride of the person,offering it to Rama means surrendering oneself to him. Rama presents his ring to seeta through Hanuman ,ring represents the lord's grace and protection to seeta. [note both surrender of soul to God is via hanuman and grace is also obtained only through Vayu ] {ring is an assurance of  shelter and protection , now a days couples exchange rings indicating demand of shelter from bride}

Seeta is shruthi ,chudamani is Upanishads ,it leads to Rama if studied as per Hanumans' (Acharya Anand Teertha 's) teachings.
