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

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

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

He has shown immense spiritual powers through his physical, cosmic energy, and also wisdom.

In the story of the Ramayana, he is one of the closest 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 courageous king and also an ardent devotee of shiva.

Hanuman was their only child. He is said to be mischievous during his childhood and once tried to swallow the sun as it appeared as a fruit to him.


In doing so, he was severly punished by Indira. Later, as a sympathy for a child, he was blessed with powers from other gods, due to which he became powerful.

He later became the disciple of the sun god too.

As gratitude to his guru Surya Deva, he went on to serve Lord Rama, who is born in the family Surya vamsha.

This is because Ram was the descendant of members of the Surya gods family lineage.

Hanuman with Lord Rama

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

To build a bridge over the ocean to cross over, Hanuman is said to have found a method to float the 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 believed to be immortal (Chiranjeevi). This means he is ever alive and has no dead.

When lord Ram and Laxmana are about to leave for their divine abode, Lord Hanuman did want to accompany them.

He said he wanted to live in a place where Lord Ram’s name is spelled and worshiped.

Even lord ram argued that as time moves on, even his name would be hard to be heard or found in the world in the future.

But still, hanuman said he would find and sit beside a devotee who would spell Lord Ram’s name.

To this Lord, Ram blessed him to be 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 worship is happening.

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