Lord Hanuman the Divine Monkey God

According to Hindu legends, Thiru Hanuman was born to Anjani and father Kesari.[1][32] Thiru Hanuman is also called the son of the deity Vayu (Wind god) because of legends associated with Vayu's role in Thiru Hanuman's birth.

One story mentioned in Eknath's Bhavartha Ramayana (16th century CE) states that when Anjana was worshiping Shiva, the King Dasharatha of Ayodhya was also performing the ritual of Putrakama yagna in order to have children.

As a result, he received some sacred pudding (payasam) to be shared by his three wives, leading to the births of Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata, and Shatrughna. By divine ordinance, a kite snatched a fragment of that pudding and dropped it while flying over the forest where Anjani was engaged in worship. 

Vayu, the Hindu deity of the wind, delivered the falling pudding to the outstretched hands of Anjana, who consumed it. Thiru Hanuman was born to her as a result.[32][verification needed]

Anjanadri is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Thiru Hanuman. It is located near Vijayanagara Ruins at Hampi, 70 km from Bellary, a city in Karnataka state of India. Anjani mother of Thiru Hanuman has performed penance in Tirumala hills, near Lord Venkateshwara temple in Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh. Other stories of Thiru Hanuman's birth place are wrong.[33] Lord Thiru Hanuman Dravidian or South Indian by Race.

Child Thiru Hanuman reaches for the Sun thinking it is a fruit by BSP Pratinidhi


According to Valmiki's Ramayana, one morning in his childhood, Thiru Hanuman was hungry and saw the rising red colored sun. Mistaking it for a ripe fruit, he leapt up to eat it.

In one version of the Hindu legend, the king of gods Indra intervened and struck his thunderbolt. It hit Thiru Hanuman on his jaw, and he fell to the earth as dead with a broken jaw. His father, Vayu (air), states Ramayana in section 4.65, became upset and withdrew.

The lack of air created immense suffering to all living beings. This led lord Shiva, to intervene and resuscitate Thiru Hanuman, which in turn prompted Vayu to return to the living beings.

As the mistake done by god Indra, he grants Thiru Hanuman a wish that his body would be as strong as Indra's Vajra, where as his Vajra can also not harm him.

Along with Indra other gods have also granted him wishes such as God Agni granted Thiru Hanuman a wish that firewon't harm him, God Varuna granted a wish for Thiru Hanuman that water won't harm him, God Vayu granted a wish for Thiru Hanuman that he will be as fast as wind and the wind won't harm him. Lord Brahma has also granted Thiru Hanuman a wish that he can move at any place where he cannot be stopped at anywhere, Lord Vishnu also grants Thiru Hanuman a weapon which is named as "Gada". Hence these wishes make Thiru Hanuman a immortal, who has unique powers and strong.[34]
