With rhythm of its verse and the flow of the narrative this sloka to sloka transcreation of the canto beautiful of Valmiki's adi kavya - the foremost poetical composition in the world, Hanuman's Odyssey that paves the way for Rama to rescue his kidnapped wife is bound to charm the readers and listeners alike. It mainly covers the search for Sita by Sri Hanuman, his dejection at not finding Sita, recovery of Sri Hanuman from dejection, the subtle way of his dealing with Sita, the exploits of Sri Hanuman in Lanka, restoring confidence in Sita by the former.
It is true that the other Kandas cover the exploits of Sri Rama over his enemies. However, Sundara Kanda offers something else to the readers. If one reads carefully one will find that Sri Hanuman did not carry any weapon with him to Lanka. The pictorial depiction of him carrying a mace is imaginary. That indicates his confidence levels. He did not use his Supernatural powers at his whims and fancies to frighten ordinary mortals. He used them only when the situation warranted usage of the same.
Although you are suited to be burnt into ashes, not having the mandate of Rama and preserving austerity , I am not reducing you into ashes with my glory. Hanuman turned towards east, saluted his father, the Lord of Wind and increased his body to go towards southern direction.
Did he use without any purpose? Dakshinachara means, in my view, not only following the way of life, but reaching the highest point in the life, ie. Sri Hanuman was a learned person, carried enormous strength, exhibited Super Human Powers, apart from being a Realised Soul.
Sage Valmiki presented Sri Hanuma as the representative of Dakshinachara, whereas Ravana and Indrajit was presented as the representatives of Vamachara.

The original Sundara Kanda is in Sanskrit and was composed by Valmiki , who was the first to scripturally record the Ramayana. Sundara Kanda is the only chapter of the Ramayana in which the hero is not Rama , but rather Hanuman. The work depicts the adventures of Hanuman and his selflessness, strength, and devotion to Rama are emphasized in the text. The Sundara Kanda forms the heart of Valmiki's Ramayana and consists of a detailed, vivid account of Hanuman's adventures. After learning about Sita, Hanuman assumes a gargantuan form and makes a colossal leap across the ocean to Lanka after defeating Surasa , the Mother of the Nagas and Sinhika, who is sent by the Devtas. In the Ashok Vatika , Sita is wooed and threatened by Ravana and his demon mistresses to marry Ravana.
