Hanuman God | Stories of his Birth, Powers, Death and Mantra

Lord Hanuman is one of the famous Hindu gods in monkey form.

He is believed to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva to help lord Vishnu in his Shri Ram avatar.

He has immense spiritual powers by physic, cosmic energy, and also wisdom.

In the story of the Ramayana, he is one of the close observers of all the details of lord ram.

He is the ardent devotee and servant of Lord Ram and Seeta.

His blessing is so immense that many worship hanuman regularly.

Hanuman birth

Hanuman is born to a couple who are pious devotees of Lord Shiva. His mother is Anjani and his father is Kesari. Kesari was a very brave and also ardent devotee of shiva. Hanuman was their only child. He was mischievous during his childhood and once tried to swallow the sun as it appeared as s fruit to him.

In doing so, he was hurt and was blessed with powers from other gods, due to which he became very strong. He later became the disciple of the sun god too.Hanuman

As gratitude to his guru Surya Deva, he went on to serve Lord Rama, who is born in the family Surya vamsha. This means Ram was the descendant of members of the Surya Deva family lineage.

Hanuman with Lord Rama:

Hanuman became a sincere devotee to lord ram and helped him in tracing his wife Seeta, who was carried away by evil king Ravan.

To build a bridge over the ocean to cross over, Hanuman is said to have found a method to float stones on ocean water. When he wrote “Shri Ram” on the stones and threw them over water, they did not sink floated instead. Then the entire vanara sena (monkey soldiers) completed the whole bridge to cross the sea.

This bridge is still present to this day as Ram Setu.

Hanuman death

Lord Hanuman is also called Chiranjeevi. This means he is ever alive and has no death.

When lord Ram and Laxmana are about to leave for their divine abode, Lord Hanuman wanted to accompany him. But it is said lord ram insisted him to stay back and help devotees. Hence he is also called Kaliyuga Brahma as he can bless anyone with their genuine wishes.

Even there are few Hindu saints who claimed to have seen lord hanuman. One of them is Tulsidas, who wrote a Hanuman Chalisa. One can find lord hanuman in groups where lord ram bhajan and worship is happening.

Hanuman Mantra: There are few mantras of hanuman written by different saints. I personally go through Hanuman Chalisa. The recitation of the mantra help overcome mental agony, health problems and also helps improve your luck.
