A relative of Ravan, a demoness named Surasa, waylaid Lord Hanuman on his way to Lanka in his efforts to locate Sita. In an effort to stop Lord Hanuman’s progress she challenged him to enter her mouth. She tried to capture him by engulfing him and trapped him in her cavernous mouth. Lord Hanuman countered this by expanding his proportions in such a way that she had to keep on expanding her mouth to keep him inside it. He escaped the demoness by tricking her. He became as tiny as a human thumb and made his exit from the demoness’s clutches from her right ear.
