Get to know the 5 interesting facts about Lord Hanuman Murti

Posted by vivek choudhary on December 16th, 2020

Today we are standing on the verge of an economic collapse due to lockdown. The possibility of compulsory vaccination looms in front of us. We are being forced to only see the Medical system as an alternative to recovery. There is a rush to buy protective gear, kits, gloves, masks, sanitization equipment and manufacture ventilators and medicines; after this next step would be to pump this in the market for as long as possible.

The media is not showing us the truth. What we are seeing is fear, fear, and fear. Why is no one speaking up? Why people are not researching what some doctors themselves are saying. I have a few points to highlight: The number of people dying in any country due to Covid-19 is far lesser than the usual number of daily deaths. 

  1. Lord Hanuman also had five real brothers

You will be surprised to know that Lord Hanuman statue also had five real brothers, and all were married. It is mentioned in "Brahmana Purana". Purana contains a description of Lord Hanuman's father Kesari and his dynasty. It is also mentioned that Vanar Raj Kesari had 6 sons; the eldest son was Lord Hanuman. The names of the brothers of Lord Hanuman were Matiman, Shrutiman, Ketuman, Gatiman and Dhritiman, respectively and they all had children. Therefore, their dynasty was several years old.

  1. Pawanaputra Hanuman was the incarnation of Lord Shiva

Apsara "Anjana", who once lived in heaven, was cursed by a sage that her face will become like a monkey when she loves someone. So she pleaded with Lord Brahma for help. By the grace of Lord Brahma, she took birth on earth as a human. Anjana later fell in love with Kesari, the king of the apes, and they both got married. Anjana was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva and performed hard penance to please him. She wants a son like God Shiva in qualities as well as strengths, so she asked for a boon. God Shiva accepted it.

  1. The reason behind the Lord Hanuman’s name as "Bajrangbali"

Once, seeing Goddess Sita applying sindoor, Lord Hanuman Murti asked her, "why does she apply it on her forehead”? To this Goddess, Sita replied that "since Shri Ram is her husband, I apply sindoor to wish her long life." Lord Hanuman thought that if Goddess Sita applied a little sindoor on her forehead, the age of Sri Ram could be prolonged, then if I apply it on the whole body, the life of Shri Ram will increase manifold. Thinking this, he applied sindoor all over his body. As sindoor is also called "Bajrang", from that day onwards, Lord Hanuman came to be called "Bajrangbali," and that is why whenever he is worshipped, shindoor is offered to him.

  1. In Sanskrit, "Hanuman" means "disfigured jaw"

In the Sanskrit language, "Hanu" means "jaw" and "mana" means "disfigured". Do you know that the childhood name of Lord Hanuman idol was "Maruti? Once in childhood, Maruti ate Lord Surya as a fruit. It caused darkness in the entire world. Lord Indra became angry by the incident, he struck the child Maruti with a thunderbolt that broke his jaw and he became unconscious. After this incident, Hanuman lost his jaw forever.

  1. Despite being a Brahmachari, Lord Hanuman was the father of a son

You will be surprised to know that despite being a Brahmachari, Lord Hanuman was the father of a son. The name of Lord Hanuman's son was "Makardhwaja". After burning the whole Lanka with his tail, Hanuman dipped in the sea to cool off his body. It is said that the fish swallowed his sweat and thus, Makardhwaja was conceived and born to a mighty fish of the same name.
