Sita is also the feminine principle of space and receptivity that the
cosmic Vayu depends upon. Without Hanuman, we cannot find Sita, and
Rama cannot fulfill his destiny of the highest dharma.

Let us not forget our own deeper cosmic energy in our fascination with
the latest information technology that is but its shadow. Hanuman
reveals to us the way of transcendence.

Rama gives Hanuman his ring so that the latter can identify himself to Sita.

Rama gives Hanuman his ring so that the latter can identify himself to
Sita. Thus, when a disciple meets a teacher, he also feels deep in his
inner that this is his teacher. Hanuman is the only one who can enter
into Lanka. He speaks with Sita and assures her that he will stay in
Lanka for a while. During this time he destroys many demons; sitting
on a big arch he fights with them. The Son of the Air symbolically
sits on the diaphragm and purifies the system from a part of the
demons who dwell in the field of the solar plexus, the sacral centre
and the Muladhara. It is the abyss filled with emotions, mental
concepts and mundane material. Before Hanuman returns to Rama he warns
the ego Ravana and burns down Lanka. Together with Rama Hanuman then
leads the monkey army into battle and helps to win the war. In this he
never feels great and neither has any personal motives for his action
but submits himself totally to the Lord.

Goddess Kali appoints Hanuman as her doorkeeper

Goddess Kali appoints Hanuman as her doorkeeper

Hanuman’s tale as told in the epic Ramayana is renowned for its ability to inspire its readers to face ordeals and conquer obstructions in their own lives. At the time of the Ramayana, Hanuman

is sent as an advance spy to Lanka, the capital of the mighty demon
Ravana’s empire.  Ravana has provoked Lord Rama by carrying away his
beloved wife Sita in order to start a war.  During the epic times that
follow, Hanuman brings hope and secret messages to the captive Sita,
leads Rama’s monkey army in the Battle of Lanka and single-handedly
kills many demons including Lankini, champion of the demons.  During
this time Hanuman is captured by the enemy, only to outwit them with
cunning and the use of his powers.  He returns to find Lord Rama and
his brother Lakshmana themselves captured by the enemy and about to be
sacrificed to the goddess Kali by the sorcerer Mahiravana.  In a tale
of great daring, Hanuman outsmarts the evil lord into becoming the
sacrifice himself, thereby earning the eternal respect of Kali.  She
appoints Hanuman as her doorkeeper and today many of her temples are
seen to have a monkey guarding their doorways.

Hanuman and His Love for Eating 

Hanuman and His Love for Eating 

Here is one more interesting story of Hanuman depicting the regard and dedication towards the Lord Rama. Once Sita ji invited Hanuman for a lunch and especially which was cooked by her. Sita ji made many delicacies for the lunch, which was to be attended by Hanuman. Hanuman ji came and started eating the food served to him. He ate the whole food which was made in the kitchen .Sita ji quickly made more delicacies in order to satisfy the hunger of Hanuman. Hanuman ate that too and asked for more. Again, Sita ji cooked some more food and again it got finished in seconds. The condition was that nothing was left in the kitchen to cook. Sita ji got tensed and thought to ask lord Rama about the situation. She conveyed the whole scene to Rama. Rama asked Sita ji to give a Tulsi-dal (a leaf of Tulsi) to Hanuman and her problem would be solved. Sita ji did the same and Hanuman’s appetite got satisfied. This shows that the words of Lord Rama are inevitable for Hanuman.

The story of Sindoor and Lord Hanuman

The story of Sindoor and Lord Hanuman

Hanuman – A Great Disciple of Rama Hanuman is a supreme devotee of Sri Rama. Many incidents of Hanuman’s life acclaim this love. This is one interesting story which confirms the deep love of Hanuman for Lord Rama. Once when Sita ji (Consort of Lord Rama) was applying sindoora (vermillion) to her hair, Hanuman asked her the reason for doing so. She replied that by applying sindoora, she ensured a long life for her husband. The more sindoora she applied, the longer Rama’s life would be. The devoted Hanuman then smeared his entire body with sindoora, in an effort to ensure Rama’s immortality. 

Hanuman has always been a humble and respectful being

Hanuman has always been a humble and respectful being

Although Hanuman possessed such incredible powers, he was ever a

humble and respectful being, serving first Sugriva, lord of the monkey
kingdom and then Rama. When he confronts Ravana in his quest to rescue
Rama’s wife, Sita, he says, “I am a humble messenger of Sri Rama. I
have come here to serve Rama, to do his work. I am fearless by the
grace of Lord Rama. I am not afraid of death. I welcome it, if it
comes while I am serving Lord Rama.” When Sita is rescued and Ravana
defeated, Rama says to Hanuman, ” I am greatly indebted to you, O
mighty hero. You did marvelous, superhuman deeds. Sugriva has his
kingdom restored to him. Angada has been made the crown prince.
Vibhishana has become king of Lanka. But you have not asked for
anything at any time.” He therefore goes on to grant the selfless
Hanuman everlasting life and the promise that his icon will always be
placed at the door to Rama’s temple so that devotees will worship him
as much as they do Rama. Thus Hanuman became the symbol of fierce
devotion and friendship – a reminder that all relationships grow and
endure with a foundation of loyalty.

Hanuman flies to Lanka to meet Mata Sita.

When crossing the ocean , Hanuman teaches a lesson to Lankini, the guardian demoness of Lanka, with a mighty punch. After entering Lanka, Hanuman met Vibhishan (Ravana’s righteous brother), and learned of Sita’s location from him. He then met Sita, introduced himself and gave lord Ram’s ring as a proof of his authenticity as a messenger. Having met her with humility, he wreaked havoc in the palatial lawns (Ashok Vatika) and killed various soldiers of Ravana’s army, including his son Akshay Kumar. After that, Hanuman voluntarily surrendered and was presented in the court. After a diplomatic but futile dialogue with Ravan, Hanuman’s tail was set on fire as a punishment. Using his tail as a wick, he set the whole city on fire, and aborted all unborn demon kids with a loud shriek. These exploits are narrated in Sundarkand, the fifth canto of Ramayan which is sung in praise of Hanuman. With this, Hanuman left Lanka, later to return with the Ram, Lakshman and Sugriva’s Army. Hanuman fought the war bravely and played a pivotal role in its outcome. When Lakshman was fatally attacked by Ravan’s son Meghnad, Hanuman flew overnight to Himalayas to find Sanjeevni Bootee (a potent herb) and saved Lakshman.

सीताजी से भेंट

सीताजी से भेंट

हनुमान ने अशोकवाटिका में सीता को राम का संदेश दिया तथा लंका नगरी में उत्पात खड़ा कर दिया।[6] अनेक राक्षसों को परास्त करके हनुमान ने अपनी वीरता का प्रदर्शन किया। अंत में रावण ने मेघनाद को भेजा। मेघनाद ने ब्रह्मास्त्र का प्रयोग करके हनुमान को बांध लिया तथा उसे रावण के पास ले गया। रावण ने पहले तो हनुमान को मृत्युदंड देने का विचार किया किंतु विभीषण के यह सुझाने पर कि किसी के दूत को मारना उचित नहीं है, रावण ने उनकी पूंछ जलवाकर छोड़ दिया। जलती हुई पूंछ से हनुमान ने समस्त लंका जला डाली, फिर सीता को प्रणाम करके, समुद्र पार करके अंगद के पास पहुँचे। राम-रावण के प्रत्यक्ष युद्ध में भी हनुमान का अद्वितीय योगदान था। युद्धक्षेत्र में शत्रुओं के नाश और मित्रों की परिचर्या में वह समान रूप से दत्तचित्त रहते थे।

राम और हनुमान : रामचंद्र ने हनुमान को अपना दूत बनाकर लंका नगरी में रावण के पास भेजा।

राम और हनुमान : रामचंद्र ने हनुमान को अपना दूत बनाकर लंका नगरी में रावण के पास भेजा।

सीता-हरण के उपरांत राम रावण से युद्ध करने की तैयारी में लग गये। सुग्रीव की वानर सेना ने राम का पूरा साथ दिया। सुरसा रामायण के अनुसार समुद्र में रहने वाली नागमाता थी। सीताजी की खोज में समुद्र पार करने के समय सुरसा ने राक्षसी का रूप धारण कर हनुमान का रास्ता रोका और उन्हें खा जाने के लिए उद्धत हुई। समझाने पर जब वह नहीं मानी, तब हनुमान ने अपना शरीर उससे भी बड़ा कर लिया। जैसे-जैसे सुरसा अपना मुँह बढ़ाती जाती, वैसे-वैसे हनुमान शरीर बढ़ाते जाते। बाद में हनुमान ने अचानक ही अपना शरीर बहुत छोटा कर लिया और सुरसा के मुँह में प्रवेश करके तुरंत ही बाहर निकल आये। सुरसा ने प्रसन्न होकर हनुमान को आशीर्वाद दिया तथा उनकी सफलता की कामना की। सुरसा का सामना करने के बाद रामभक्त हनुमान सीताजी की खोज के लिए आगे बढ़ गये।

रामचंद्र ने हनुमान को अपना दूत बनाकर लंका नगरी में रावण के पास भेजा। लंका के निकट पहुंचकर हनुमान ने बहुत छोटा रूप धारण किया तथा रात्रि के अंधकार में उसमें प्रवेश किया। लंका एक भयंकर नारी का रूप धारण करके हनुमान के पास पहुंची और बोली- ‘मैं इस नगरी की रक्षा करती हूं, तुम मुझे परास्त किये बिना इसमें प्रवेश नहीं पा सकते।’ साथ ही लंका ने हनुमान के मुंह पर एक चपत लगायी। हनुमान ने उसे नारी जानकर एक हल्का-सा घूंसा मारा किंतु वह गिर पड़ी और परास्त हो गयी। तदनंतर अत्यंत मुदित भाव से बोली-‘मुझे ब्रह्मा ने वरदान दिया था कि जब कोई वानर आकर तुम्हें परास्त कर देगा तब समझ लेना, राक्षसों का नाश हो जायेगा। रावण ने सीता-हरण के द्वारा राक्षसों के नाश को आमन्त्रित किया है। तुम सीता को जाकर ढूंढ़ो।
