Mainda is considered as one of the chief warriors in the Vanara Army, and he was controlled by the Vanara king Sugriva. He participated in the war held between Rama and Ravana, and fought bravely and killed lot of demons, and he was high praised by Sugriva for his valour.
When Vibhishana wanted to take refuge with Rama, it was the great Mainda who talked to Rama in favour of Vibhishana along with Hanuman, and asked Rama to give shelter to Vibhishana, and he considered Vibhishana as a pious and holy demon.
Among the several Vanaras, it was Mainda who looked calm and acted in a righteousness manner, and he got very good features, and he was widely praised by Hanuman and Sugriva.
After Hanuman found Mata Sitain Lanka, he returned back to Kishkinta, and informed to Sugriva and other Vanaras about the incidents in Lanka. Due to that, Surgriva was very happy and gave permission to drink wine to the Vanaras. At that time, Mainda had advised Sugriva not to permit the Vanaras to drink the wine, since it could make delay in meeting with Rama.
Till the end of his life, he served sincerely and faithfully to his master Sugriva, and after the end of his life, he went to the SWARGA LOKA.
Let us praise the mighty Vanara warrior and be blessed.
