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
Hanuman is worshipped for
his strength, agility and valor. The worship of Hanuman, symbolizes the worship
of the Supreme Lord, for acquiring knowledge, physical and mental strength,
truthfulness, sincerity, self-sacrifice, modesty, loyalty, and profound devotion
to the Lord. Sri Hanuman was blessed by Sri Rama with immortality (chiranjeevi).
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.
