SundarkandNirnay-15 Delight of Fire [Lankahuti]

Hanuman's advice sent Ravana into a swirl of anger ,he ran towards Hanuman to kill him,but was stopped by Vibheeshana .Vibheeshana stopped Ravana ,this in no way could be considered as a favour on Hanuman .hanuman is MukhyaPrana [lord of prana] his prana could not have been saved by Vibheeshana.Vibheeshana's efforts could temporarily postpone Ravana's death. But Vibheeshana did not order Hanuman's tail to be lit by \fire . ravana inspired his rakshasas to light Hanuman's tail. Rakshasas tied cloth reams and fuel to light up fire.

Fire is a dependent of Vayu [ fire needs air to burn and not vice versa] , hence fire just could not assist in Ravana's design. However hanuman though not affected by Bramhastra , could not have been affected by mortal fire. He just acted to be under Rakshasas net and allowed them to tie cloth reams and lit fire ,only to destroy city of Lanka .

Hanuman Destroyed entire Lanka, Lanka was a fireproof city ,built by Vishwakarma. Ordinary fire could not have burnt it. Hanuman burnt Lanka with his own heat[tejas]. Hanuman is hotter than fire[agni]. Agni is no match for him. But agni knowing his capability [as against Hanuman] showed  his subordination to Hanuman by being just warm rather then burning Hot towards Tail of Hanuman. This gesture from Agni was duly noted by Vayu and thus blessed by Vayu.

Lanka was a beautiful city  studded with pearls and gold and jewels , this along with other Rakshasa was destroyed  by Hanuman , Hanuman roared in happiness . Destruction of Evil people's wealth is also liked by God , in as much Hanuman knew he has performed a Hari seva in burning Lanka to ashes .Hanuman Roared to signify this happiness.


SundarkandNirnay-14 Hanuman's advice

Hanuman warned Ravana ,that if he fails to return Seeta to SriRama ,he will die all alongwith his family.Those who go against  God ,hate God  they will be wiped off alongwith the family.

if practically one does not see immediate fall of those who go against god ,they in long run lose all the family members [have pain on account of family members] and finally themselves perish.

even Rudra and others cannot face the arrows of Rama, so Ravana is just too miniature to stand against the anger of Rama.Rudra has granted boons to many of his family members ,if Rudra himself cannot face Rama's anger so how can his dependent  Ravana can?.

None among devatas ,maushyas,rakshasas, and sarpas can face the arrows of Rama , so Ravana will only perish,how true these words of Hanuman[ the lord of Satya loka] was wrt Ravana.Rama forgives all the sins ,but if persistently one goes against him he will have anger as per the sin.
