Jayanthi of Shri Hanuman ,the God of strength and a great devotee of God Shri RamaHanuman Jayanthi would be celebrated on 31st of this month .We have heard a lot about this God and he is such a familiar God ,often considered as an Indian Super hero is well known by his name among Children . The looks of this God reminds us of our ancestors . He was a Great devotee of Shri Rama and like a very dear friend stood with him in his fight against evil. The God known for his ultimate power is known to remove obstacles from his devotee's life and give them new enthusiasm to fight evil and be positive .I often see devotional serials and have increased my knowledge in religious field as it interests me .It is divine to read about the God when the festival is near .People go to Hanuman temples to offer him till oil .It is believed by offering this we minimise the negatives in our life and that the God shower his blessing upon us..Reciting Hanuman Chalisa also is believed to keep the Evil Energy far from our lives. Hanuman has a special place in Hindu deities and considered as a Dear God .I would like to share some Knowledge that I have collected about Hanuman through different sources of Information such as Television as follows :
1)There is a story of how Shri Hanuman rescued Shani Dev and so he gave a promise to bless Hanuman devotees or people offering oil to this God.
2)Once Sita Maa was applying Sindoor on her forehead .Hanuman when asked the reason for this she replied it is for beloved Rama .Hanuman then applied Sindoor on his body to show his love for Shri Rama. Hence we see most of the statues of this God are orange in colour and Sindoor is used at his temples....
3)Once when Sita Maa was serving food to Hanuman ,he was asking for more food as his hunger was increasing .When she asked for a solution to Rama,he advised to add Tulsi leaf to his food .It resulted in his appetite getting relaxed and succumbed his hunger .Since then when we offer sweets a Tulsi Leaf is kept on top of them .We often see Tulsi Garland bestowed to him.
4)Devotees praise him mostly on Tuesdays and also offer oil on Saturdays .Tuesday is also Rama's day and Saturday is considered Shanidev's day .Hanuman Devotees often fast on Tuesdays to get his blessings.
5)There is a story when Hanuman went to Paataal Lok ,a second world considered to exist in the past after crossing seven seas .He fought with Makardhwaj to get an entry . The fight was in the form of Kushti or wrestling .We see Hanuman temples near Kushti (wrestling ) grounds where the players seek blessing of this God before starting the game .
