How to Celebrate Hanuman Jayanti
Hanuman Jayanti 2020

Today, we will discuss Hanuman Jayanti, as we know that nowadays we are facing a lot of issues but don't worry, let's pray to the lord" Hanuman Ji" to give the capacity to face these problems.I don’t think I need to tell here who God Hanuman is. 

He has a huge amount of worshippers and I’m pretty sure whoever is reading this article, you are probably already more than a little bit familiar with the legend of Lord Hanuman. But for anyone who doesn’t know, Lord Hanuman is the king of Vanars (monkeys) and is the one who wreaked havoc on Lanka and burned it because Raavan had Sita captive.

Hanuman was very devoted to Lord Rama, the eldest son of Dashrath and Rama’s wife Sita. Lord Hanuman is worshipped as a deity having great power and ability to defeat any and all kinds of evil. And is believed to provide protection to his devotees.

Lord Hanuman was an ardent devotee of Lord Rama and his steadfast and unwavering devotion to him is known all throughout the world. He is the symbol of strength and energy and loyalty. It is said that he can assume any form at will and he wields the Gada and many more celestial weapons, he can also move mountains and hills and can fly as well. He can seize clouds and also equally rival Garuda in the swiftness of flight.



Hanuman is also assumed to be an incarnation of Shiva himself due to how his birth came about. His mother was an apsara, Anjana who was born on earth due to being cursed and was liberated from the said curse by bearing a son. She prayed to Lord Shiva for a son and performed intense prayers to get Lord Shiva to grant her a son. 

Some also assume him to be the son of the wind god Vayu. Vishnu himself said to Narad that the curse he had placed on Vishnu, for him to dependent on a Vanara, would act as a boon leading to the birth of Shiva’s avatar- Hanuman, without whose help Vishnu’s avatar – Rama, couldn’t defeat Raavana.
