At Jambavan's urging, Hanuman goes to the Himalayas to find the four healing plants

Oshadhiparvata, that is, "the mountain of medicinal herbs," was a mythical mountain described in the Ramayana. Hanuman uproots the mountain and flies with it to the battlefield in Lanka. There the herbs are used by the Vaidyas to restore to life the dead, and to treat the wounded warriors fighting on the side of Rama.
