Hanuman is an incarnation of Rudra. His father was a king, Kesar, and mother, Anjana Devi. With the help of Vayu Dev (wind god), Anjana blessed her child as Hanuman. An ardent devotee of Rama, he was a central character in the Ramayana. He is also known as Anjaneya, Vayuputhra, and Bhajrangbali.
Sri Hanuman teaches us about the unlimited power that lies unused within each one of us. Hanuman directed all his energies towards the worship of Lord Rama. His undying devotion made him such that he became free from all physical fatigue and limitations physically, mentally, and emotionally. Hanuman’s only desire was to go on serving Rama. Hanuman perfectly exemplifies dasyabhava, devotion that bonds the Master and the servant. His greatness lies in his complete mergence with his Lord.
