Lord Hanuman

Hanuman is considered to be an avatar (incarnation) of Lord
Shiva. Shri Hanuman, a great disciple of Sri Rama, is the symbol of devotion and
dedication. Lord Hanumana is a provider of courage, hope, knowledge, intellect
and devotion. Hanuman is in the form of Vaanar (monkey). He is usually pictured
as a strong monkey holding a gada (mace) which is a sign of bravery and having a
picture of Lord Rama on his chest which is a sign of his devotion to Lord Rama.

Birth of Hanuman
Hanuman was born in the Treta Yuga, to
Anjana, a female vanara and Kesari, a strong vanara .This birth was planned by
the Supreme lord with a perfect idea in the mind. The combination of Vanara and
the celestial gave Hanuman strength, divinity and quick wits – his main
characteristics. Being Anjana’s son, Hanuman is also called Anjaneya, which
plainly means “arising from Anjana”.

Hanuman- The
Brahmachaari

Hanuman remained a Brahmachaari throughout his life, an
unmarried, celibate god. He is especially popular with body-builders, who
believe that like him, one need to be celibate in order to have a strong body.
Hanuman always treated women in the form of Mother and Sister. There are many
incidences in the great epic Ramayana where this fact is proved.

Lord
Hanuman – A Great Disciple

Hanuman has intense love for his Lord Rama
which can be considered from this instance. Once Hanuman was asked by Sri Rama,
“How do you consider me?”. Hanuman said: “Oh Lord, while I identify myself with
my body, I am Thy servant. When I consider myself an individual soul, I am Thy
part. But when I look upon myself as the spirit, I am one with Thee. This is my
firm conviction.”

Worship of Hanuman

his strength, agility and valor. The worship of Hanuman, symbolizes the worship

Every temple of Sri Rama contains an idol of Hanuman. Worship of Hanuman is
considered mandatory to complete the worship of Lord Rama.

During
Chaitra (in between March-April), Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to honor the
birth of Hanuman, the monkey god widely acclaimed throughout India.

Ganga Legend

Ganga, the River Goddess is the only living goddess in the Hindu
pantheon. There are numerous stories regarding the birth and origin of this
goddess. According to the beliefs, Ganga descends on the earth to rinse away the
sins of the mankind. Ganga is the sacred river and has been referred to in the
various ancient texts of Hindus. It is believed that Ganga used to flow in the
heaven and sanctify gods with her holy waters.

River Ganges is
repeatedly invoked in the Puranas, the Vedas, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
The story of Ganga’s descent on the Earth appears slightly different in
Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas. According to one story, Ganga is also
considered as the sister of Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva being one of the
two daughters of Himavat and Meru. According to another legend, Indra had asked
for Ganga to be given to heaven to calm the Gods with her cool
waters.

One story states that the sacred water in Brahma’s Kamandalu
(water-vessel) is personified as a maiden, Ganga. Another legend tells that
Brahma had respectfully washed the feet of Vishnu and collected this water in
his Kamandalu. Being the part of the Kamandalu of Lord Brahma, Ganga is one of
the Shaktis of the supreme Goddess Mahamaya Adishakti.

Ganga Origin –
Story of Bhagiratha

This is the most popular story regarding the origin
of river Ganga. The story goes far back when King Sagar magically acquired sixty
thousand sons. Once, King Sagar organized Ashwamedh Yagna, a ritual of worship
for the benefit of the kingdom. Jealous Indra planned a mischief and stole one
horse from the place. King Sagar sent all his sons all over the earth to look
for the horse. They found the horse in the nether-world standing next to Kapila
Muni, a meditating sage. The youths, were disrespectful and caused his penance
to be disturbed. The sage reduced them to ashes with his withering look.

The souls of these young men wandered as ghosts as their final rites had
not been done. On repeated repentance and requests by the descendants of King
Sagar, Kapila Muni finally relent that King Sagar’s sons would attain mukti
(liberation), if their wicked remains are cleansed by the water of the goddess
Ganga. Generations of King Sagar did penance to appease Brahma but without
success and finally after much praying, pleading and tapasya by Bhagirath –
seventh generation of King Sagar, Ganga reluctantly consents to descend to
earth.

With this, Ganga found herself insulted and decided to sweep the
whole earth with her powerful fall. Troubled, Bhagiratha prayed to Shiva to
control the Ganga’s descent. Lord Shiva steps in the way and trapped Ganga in
his hair. Shiva made the river fall gently through his long hair onto the
Himalayas. As Ganga moved to the nether-worlds, she liberated the unfortunate
souls of King Sagar’s Sons. Since then Ganga is sanctifying the mankind with her
divine waters.

sacred river of the Hindu Mythology. River Ganges is very much popular in India

sight, the name and the touch of Ganga takes away all sins. As per Hindu
thoughts, bathing in the river on special occasions causes remission of sins and
facilitates the attainment of salvation. It is considered that Ganga bestows
blessings of the highest order. People come from far and near to immerse the
ashes of their kin in the waters of Ganga, with a belief that the ashes would go
to heaven.

Gangajal – The Water of Ganga

Ganga, is regarded as the most pure and sacred water on this earth. Ganga water
is used in various religious ceremonies of Hindus. Even Science has proved that
