Lord Hanuman: The Mighty Vanara

Lord Hanuman is one of the most popular deities among Hindus. He is known for his mighty strength, his undying devotion to Lord Rama and his supreme power. He is also believed to be an avatar of Lord Shiva. Every year Hanuman Jayanti, the birthday of Lord Hanuman is celebrated on the Shukla Pratipada of Chaitra month. Every Tuesdays and Saturdays, Hanuman ji’s temples will be filled with his devotees offering prayers to him. He himself is also a great devotee of Lord Rama, hence the devotees of Lord Rama have the blessings of Hanumanji as well.

Lord Hanuman

Lord Hanuman is the son of Anjani (an Apsara transformed into a monkey because of a curse) and Kesari. Hence, we also know Lord Hanuman as “Kesari Nandan” and “Anjani Putra”. According to Hindu mythology, Hanuman is also the divine son of Vayu, the wind God; hence the name “Pawan Putra” is given to him. It is believed that Hanuman got the power to fly from Vayu. Lord Hanuman is known for his courage, strength and power. He is the symbol of being loyal, this quality being clearly depicted in Ramayana, where he is the loyal devotee of Lord Rama. Lord Hanuman’s popular names are Bajarangbali, Anjaneya, Chiranjeevi, Bhaktavatsala and many more.

 Little Hanuman
Lord Hanuman was mischievous child, his hunger was larger than a mountain. Once when Anjani could not satisfy his hunger, he leaped for the Sun mistaking it for a fruit. He then was punished by Lord Indra with his thunderbolt, who struck him in the face, injuring his chin and left Hanuman hurling him back to Earth. Vayu Deva noticed this and was enraged by Indra’s act, he carried little Hanuman to the netherworld “Patal Lok”; thus leaving Earth panting for breath. Indra, then knowing the danger that befalls Earth without Vayu, apologised to him, blessed Hanuman with mighty powers and restored his broken chin. This is the story of how Hanuman got the name. Hanuman is a Sanskrit term consisting of 2 words - Hanu + Man. Hanu means ‘chin’ and Man means ‘to have’. Hence, Hanuman means, the one who has chin, as he got a new chin from Lord Indra.

Lord Hanuman is known to be a Brahmachari (celibate), but there is also a story which says, Hanuman was married. Legends say that, Hanuman wanted to learn scriptures from Surya Deva (Sun God), but was rejected because those could be taught only to a married man. As such, a maiden was created out of the rays of Surya Deva who was known as Suvarchala. Hanuman was then married to Suvarchala, but still remained a Brahmachari as he did not have any kind of marital relationship with her.
