Hanuman Jayanti

Om! Rama Seetha Hanumantha! Om! Seetha Rama Hanumantha! Hanuman,is widely venerated throughout India is also known as lord of apes.

It is believed that Chiranjeevi Hanuman, a great Vaishnava, still living up in the mountains in India. He was also the chief of Sri Rama's armies. Hanuman is worshipped for his strength, agility, valor, and admired for His devotion and dedication.

He appears in both great scriptures: the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. He is a devotee of lord Rama, and wherever lord Rama's name is heard, Hanuman's presence will be there.

Hanuman Jayanthi is celebrated during the new moon day of Marghasira month to commemorate the birth of Hanuman, the son of Vayu (God of winds) and Anjana. Generally in Andhra Pradesh It is celebrated during Chaitra and is especially important to Brahmacharis, wrestlers and bodybuilders.

Hanuman was an ardent devotee of Rama, and is worshipped for his unflinching devotion to the god. Devotees flock to Hanuman temples to worship the monkey god. The priest bathes the idol and offers special prayers to the gods. Then the entire body is smeared with sindoora and oil, a symbol of life and strength.

According to a popular belief, once when Sita was applying sindoora 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. Hence Hanuman's idol is always daubed with sindoora.

Chanting the Hanuman Chalisa is a workable and powerful remedial measure that one can use in order to get some relief from malefic in their physique. It can bring about peace and devotion.
