During the period of Rama’s Vanavasa, Sita was abducted by Ravana, the powerful king of Lanka. Rama and his brother Lakshmana were determined to find her and rescue her. When Rama and Lakshmana were wandering about, the fugitive king Sugreeva was alarmed to see the two mighty heroes as they approached the mountain, and his mind filled with dread.
Sugreeva sends his minister Hanuman to ascertain their identities. Hanuman approached the two brothers in the guise of a Brahmin. He addressed them, praising them is sweet voice, “Who are you two young heroes?” You look like young kings or royal sages. What brings you to this region?” “We are Rama and Lakshamana, the sons of Dasharatha of Ayodhya. Sita, my beloved wife, has been abducted by some rakshasas in our absence. I have come here to seek the help of Sugreeva – the king of vanaras,” Rama said. Hanuman was delighted and fell at Rama’s feet. He said, “I am Hanuman, son of Vayu and Sugreeva’s minister. It is Sugreeva’s good fortune that you should sought him out and come to him.” Hanuman then brings about a friendship and alliance between Rama and Sugreeva; Rama helps Sugreeva regain his honour and makes him king of Kishkindha. Sugreeva and vanaras, most notably Hanuman, help Rama defeat Ravana and reunite with Sita. An emotional Rama hugs Hanuman, declaring him as dear to him as his own beloved brother.

Hanuman, after having met his lord Rama never left his side and continued to devoted to him for rest of his life.
