Hanuman Jayanthi falls on the full moon day of Chaitra maasa. It is the day on which Lord Hanuman was born. Lord Hanuman, who surrendered completely to Lord Rama, is a perfect example for a great devotee. The qualities that make Lord Hanuman great are: Pure heart, obedience to his master, courage, enthusiasms to serve his lord, self control, intelligence, Vedic qualifications, ability to speak in an articulate manner, etc. Several stories are there to say who the Lord Hanuman is. One among them is that Lord Hanuman was born with the amsha(power) of Lord Shiva. He is the son of Vayu, the wind god. Lord Hanuman was instrumental in finding out Lanka, the place where Sitha Devi was hidden by Ravana. Lord Hanuman was a humble devotee who never claimed that it was him who did great things like crossing the great ocean, defeating Ravanas demon warriors, located Sitha Devi, etc. but he always admitted sincerely that it is Lord Ramas grace that enabled him to do all great activities.
Lord Hanuman is such a great devotee that Lord Rama, Sitha Devi, and Lakshmana are in his heart all the time. After the coronation ceremony Lord Hanuman tears his heart and shows to everyone how Lord Rama, Sitha Devi and Lakshmana are in his heart. For his devotion and service to Lord Rama, he was given the boon of living until the name of Rama exists in this universe. Since the name of Lord Rama can never disappear from this universe, Lord Hanuman will live eternally. It is strongly believed that lord Hanuman still lives in the Himalayas chanting the name of Lord Rama.
In Kali Yuga chanting the name of Lord Rama just like lord hanuman will help us to overcome day to day challenges and pave the way towards Sri Vaikuntam, the abode of Lord Rama who is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu Himself.
Chant the following manthra everyday to overcome day to day challenges, receive spiritual wealth and peace in your life. Important of all Lord Ramas blessings will be with you. Also, lord Hanuman will continue to protect those who chant the sacred name of Lord Rama, because he will be with those who chant the name of Lord Rama.
