10 Amazing Stories Of Lord Hanuman

Hanuman The Selfless

A pair of lovebirds, enjoying their natural freedom, was soaring the boundless skies. Fate however had scripted a cruel ending to their mating. A hunter’s arrow found its mark and the devoted female lost her male. She did not however escape from the scene but rather lingered on, circling over the lifeless form of her mate.

 Witnessing this poignant episode inspired the accomplished sage Valmiki to poetry and what came out of his heart was the Ramayana, one of the greatest poems the earth has had the good fortune to inherit. Indeed, Valmiki‘s poem became renowned in the three worlds as it struck a chord in every heart that heard it.

One day Valmiki came to know that the great Hanuman too had penned the adventures of Rama, engraving the story with his nails on rocks. A curious Valmiki traveled to the Himalayas where Hanuman was residing to see this version. When Hanuman read out his narration, Valmiki was overwhelmed by its sheer power and poetic caliber. It was truly an inspired piece.

Valmiki felt both joy and sorrow. Joy because he had had the chance to hear an exceptionally beautiful poem, and sad because it obviously overshadowed his own work.

When Hanuman saw the unhappiness his work had caused Valmiki he smashed the engraved rocks destroying his creation forever. Such was Hanuman’s selflessness. For him, narrating the tales of Rama’s adventures as a means to re-experience Rama, not a means to fame.

Hanuman’s name to illustrates his self-effacing character, being made up of ‘hunan (annihilation) and ‘man’ (mind), thus indicating one who has conquered his ego.

    1. Thank you Arun Ji. I am a devotee of Hanuman Ji so like to spread a word about His life and stories. It is said that Hanuman Ji is the most prominent God in Kalyug. Hanuman acts like a Sadguru in the life of a desciple. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»
      Most of the people worship Hanuman Ji but they actually don’t know much about these stories. I am happy so many people are liking these stories.😊😊


      1. Please share more stories.
        One fact I am writing here. You may please write more on it.😊

        One day Hanuman Ji approached Shree Ram Ji and asked ” Prabhu’ which Upanishad I should read to know “Brahmagyan”
        Prabhu Ram replied: ” Hanuman, You read *Mandukya Upanishad* to get essence of Upanishads. Or else you may read 108 Upanishads”
        This I came to know from speech of Swami Sarvapriyananda ji on YouTube.
        Swami Sarvapriyananda ji is one Scholar of Ramkrishna mission.
        **Mandukya Upanishad is shortest among 10 principal Upanishads.
        Thank you so much Anita Ji for your posts which are full of knowledge and devotion.
