Hanuman is the conduit of the power of Rama as the universal self. Rama represents the self who guides all nature – through which the wind blows, out of which the Sun and Moon move, which holds the Earth in place through gravity.
The yogi works through that cosmic Vayu and universal Prana, in attunement and harmony with the whole of life.
The cosmic Vayu is inherently a force of intelligence, linking us to the cosmic mind that aligns all minds together in an interconnected network of thought. That is why Hanuman is the most wise and observant, holding the power of buddhi, the discriminating inner intelligence that reveals the highest truth
Today our world prides itself in a new information technology, with a
rapid speed of data, calculation and communication. Modern science has
learned to tap the latent powers of nature to transform our outer
lives.At a cosmic level, there is a deeper energy that runs everything
in the universe.
This is called “Vayu”, which is not just a force of the wind or air
element, but the Kriya Shakti or power of action that governs all
inanimate and animate forces.
Since Treta Yuga Hanuman has remained on the planet and eternally
sings the sound RAM, the seed sound of Cosmic Fire, which purifies
things spontaneously and directly. He is the most ancient one in the
Himalayas and belongs to the four great teachers who are beyond the
three qualities but are present in the petals of the Muladhara, the
base centre, of every human and who help us with the ascent from
matter. He rules over the northern petal associated with silence and
over the energy line of Sushumna which rises from the heart and links
us with the Divine. Therefore this line which moves the Prana upward
is also called Hanuman, and “chief life”, the guiding life.
These are no fairy tales but stories belonging to the Buddhic plane.
The Buddhic plane, also called the fourth plane, is ruled by the
element of air. There matter is light and it has a greater
flexibility. Hanuman, the son of the air or of the fourth plane
appears in the fourth song of the Ramayana. The fifth song describes
Hanuman’s work for the liberation of Sita.
The Ramayana is full of esoteric secrets about the universe and man.
Rama represents the Lord, Hanuman the teacher and Sita the soul which
is separated from the wholeness of Life. When she wants to have the
golden deer, which is an illusion, she is kidnapped by a demon of
over-activity who wants to possess all that he likes. Ravana keeps
Sita imprisoned on the island of Lanka which stands for the separated
consciousness. After Sita got locked up, she feels remorse and starts
praying to the Lord. She only thinks of Him and shows a fiery
aspiration to be re-united with him.
Rama, the Lord, searches for Sita, the abducted soul. He sends
Hanuman, the teacher, because Sita is searching for the Lord. The
teacher is the intermediary between the Lord and the disciple, between
the soul and the universal soul. The element of air, manifested in
Hanuman, creates this link.
Hanuman became a disciple of Lord Sun and got a radiant diamond body through the Sun’s magnetisation.
It is said that on his journey to the Sun Hanuman saw the shadow of
the Earth, the North Node and the South Node, and he neutralised them.
Thus, people who suffer from negative effects of the nodes worship
Hanuman so that he neutralises these impacts.
The Sun took pleasure in Hanuman; Hanuman became his disciple and got
a radiant diamond body through the Sun’s magnetisation. All initiates
beyond the fifth initiation have a diamond body. Hanuman had a golden
body by birth and a diamantine body by the Sun. In India he is
worshipped in orange colour. His worship is the key to the sixth ray
to overcome the dominance of the emotional body.
Hanuman was so modest and humble that no one knew how powerful he was.
Because of his self-forgetfulness he had to be reminded of his power,
otherwise he knows nothing of it. He is not in the state ‘I AM’ or
‘THAT I AM’ but in the state of THAT. He does not recollect himself.
Another great Vanara, the monkey king Vali, lived at the place which
today we call Bali. Vali had great power but became diabolic. He did
not want anybody to become more powerful than himself. Thus, Vali
tried to kill Hanuman when he was in his mother’s womb. He entered
into the womb of Anjana and became molten gold to bring about the
death of the child. Even in the womb Hanuman was already very radiant
and immortal. Therefore, the gold could not do him any harm, he just
became more radiant. Thus, Vali decided to make friends with him
Hanuman tried to veil his radiance by growing a fur around himself. As
a five-year old child he was fascinated by the sun ball and he felt
that the sun was a fruit. He jumped up and devoured it. The solar
system got into a big crisis. A cosmic king named Sakra wanted to
protect the creation and hit Hanuman with Indra’s thunderbolt.
Unconsciously Hanuman fell to the ground. He was again brought back to
life but kept a lower jaw damaged by the thunderbolt. In Sanskrit,
‘Hanuman’ means someone with a damaged lower jaw.
Hanuman is a manifestation of the First Logos, of the Cosmic Fire,
which is called Agni, Shiva or Rudras. Rudras can move things from one
place to the other, they can create and also destroy. At every level
the Rudras emerge as the first ones, at the supra-cosmic plane as
Agni, at the cosmic plane as Rudra, at the solar plane as Maruts, the
vibrations of the wind, and on the planetary plane as the light of the
sunrays. Hanuman is one of the Maruts. Therefore, he is worshipped as
Son of Rudra, of Vayu etc. He is a being of synthesis, through whom
all 7 rays get expressed. Hanuman is considered as one of the oldest
teachers on the planet and is also called a World Teacher. In the
Puranas it says that he will take the position of the creator in the
The mother of Hanuman was Anjana meaning the incomprehensible one; no
one could understand her beauty and power. She married a Deva
intelligence called Keshari, which creates the etheric plane of golden
glow. Lord Shiva gave his sperm which was transferred into the womb of
Anjana and thus, Hanuman was born in “immaculate conception”. His
original name was Anjanea, the son of Anjana. Hanuman’s birthday is
celebrated at the 10th descending moon phase of Taurus. He was born in
the area of today’s Andaman Islands which belong to India.
