5 Facts About Lord Hanuman | Hanuman Jayanti 2018

Lord Hanuman is one of the most important Gods in Hinduism. It is a symbol of devotion, faith, courage and selfless love.

Apart from Ramayana and Mahabharata, Hanuman has been mentioned in many other religious texts. He is worshipped not only in India but also in South East Asia, although in different forms and with various legends.

Hanuman is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Hanu’ and ‘Man’. While the word ‘Hanu’ means jaw, ‘man’ means disfigured. Hanuman was called because he had a disfigured jaw since his childhood.

– When he was young, Hanuman went straight on the sun (which he misinterpreted as a mature fruit) and tried to swallow it. This happens when Indra attacked with his Vajra (thunderbolt) and he fell straight on the earth when his jaw was disfigured.

– Lord Hanuman had an astronomical nymph named Anjana Punjikasthal, who was cursed to be born as a monkey on earth when he had offended the sage.

– According to mythology, Hanuman is one of the four people who has heard of Bhagavad Gita from Krishna and have seen Vishwaroop form, the other three are Arjuna, Sanjaya and Barbarika son of Ghatotkacha.

– Hanuman also made his own version of the Ramayana – which was an approximated version compared to Valmiki.

– Women are not allowed to touch Hanuman’s feet Hanuman was a child Brahmachari (unmarried / Brahmachari meaning). Therefore, men are allowed to worship and touch the idol. Women can worship but do not touch the idol.
