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.
Sanskrit texts mention several stories about how Hanuman got his name.
Hanuman had a lifelong obsession with the sun, and as a youngster,
blazed towards it, mistaking the sun for a mango and mischievously
chomping a bite out of it. This really pissed off Indra, the king of
the gods, who struck Hanuman’s jaw with lightening, to scold his
impetuous nature. A bit harsh, right? Regardless, Hanuman is said to
have received his name from the Sanskrit words “hanu” meaning jaw, and
“man” meaning prominent or disfigured.
Another lore credits the name as a derivative of the Sanskrit words
“han” meaning killed or destroyed, and “mana” meaning pride;
indicating that Hanuman is the one whose pride was destroyed.
During the battle of Mahabharata, Hanuman waspresent in an invisible form on the flag of Arjuna’s chariot.
Most of us know that during the battle of Mahabharata, Hanuman was
present in an invisible form on the flag of Arjuna’s chariot. There’s
a legend behind this…
Some time after meeting Bheema, Hanuman also met Arjuna and the two
had an argument, again a product of Arjuna’s vanity. He claimed that
he can build a bridge similar to what Sugriva’s army built to reach
Lanka before the war. Hanuman then dared Arjuna to build a bridge that
can withstand his weight, let alone an Army’s. Arjuna’s first bridge
was thwarted as quickly as it was raised after Hanuman stepped on it.
At this point, Krishna asked Arjuna to build the bridge again and
touched it before asking Hanuman to try it. Now Hanuman, with all his
might and prowess, couldn’t harm the bridge. At this point he saw the
form of his lord Ram in Krishna and vowed to protect Arjuna and serve
Krishna by being present on the chariot’s flag in invisible form.
When after the war Krishna and Hanuman left Arjuna’s chariot, it
caught fire and burnt instantly. Hanuman apparently guarded the
chariot and guarded it from all the fatal attacks that might have

Oh Hanuman, you will be worshiped as a terror for the enemy and best friend and generous giver amongst the friends and worshipers.”
Pawanputra Hanuman is considered as a part of Lord Shankar’s Rudravatar and apart from Lord Ram, Lankapati Ravan and Vibhishan were also impressed with Hanuman ji’s qualities.
No God or Devil is equal to Hanuman ji in 14 worlds and 3 universes. Indeed, Hanuman Ji’s character is the most famous and respectable character in Ramayan after Shri Ram.
In the episode of Ramayan, when Lord Ram becomes the king of Ayodhya after winning the battle of Lanka, he gifted precious gems and jewellery to Sugriv, Jambuvan, Angad, Lankapati Vibhishan and other monkeys and in the end Lord Ram took Hanuman ji in his lap and honored him with his own jewellery, what he was wearing. Then, Hanuman ji with his eyes filled with tears said, “Oh Lord, I do not expect all this but you warmth and blessings that I can remain a your worshiper always. That I do not get attached with anyone else except you and I get to listen to your glory till the world exists.” Listening to this, Lord Ram hugged him and blessed him saying, “Till the time, people will be knowing me, your name will also be remembered. From now on, my soul resides in yours.”

Many Gods gave him various blessings and benedictions to him for his
service, worship and bravery. Following are few blessings:

हनुमानजी भगवान सूर्य से अपनी शिक्षा ग्रहण कर रहे थे। सूर्य कहीं रुक नहीं सकते थे इसलिए हनुमानजी को सारा दिन भगवान सूर्य के रथ के साथ-साथ उड़ना पड़ता था और भगवान सूर्य उन्हें तरह-तरह की विद्याओं का ज्ञान देते। लेकिन हनुमानजी को ज्ञान देते समय सूर्य के सामने एक दिन धर्मसंकट खड़ा हो गया। कुल 9 तरह की विद्याओं में से हनुमानजी को उनके गुरु ने 5 तरह की विद्याएं तो सिखा दीं, लेकिन बची 4 तरह की विद्याएं और ज्ञान ऐसे थे, जो केवल किसी विवाहित को ही सिखाए जा सकते थे। हनुमानजी पूरी शिक्षा लेने का प्रण कर चुके थे और इससे कम पर वे मानने को राजी नहीं थे। इधर भगवान सूर्य के सामने संकट था कि वे धर्म के अनुशासन के कारण किसी अविवाहित को कुछ विशेष विद्याएं नहीं सिखा सकते थे। ऐसी स्थिति में सूर्यदेव ने हनुमानजी को विवाह की सलाह दी। contd…..
In this context, the sun is the symbol of the highest attainment in this relative world-Swarga or heaven-the goal of sakamya karma or pravritti marga (the path of enjoying the fruits of one’s karma or actions). When, as a child, Hanuman bounded towards the sun and swallowed it, believing it to be a shining fruit in the sky, Indra, the lord of the heavens, struck him with his thunderbolt (the force of pravritti) to save the world from utter darkness.
This broke the chin of Hanuman (symbolic of breaking his pride). Thus, the very name Hanuman (broken chin) beckons the mind of the aspirant to humility, a supreme devotional quality that leads the devotee to the highest goal-that is a desire to follow nivritti marga or the path of turning inward to seek liberation.
Contrary to the popular belief that Hanuman means Monkey King, in Sanskrit it means to have a disfigured jaw. The word Hanu means Jaw and man means disfigured. As per legends, when Lord Hanuman, as child mistook the sun as a ripe mango and travelled to the skies to retrieve it.
