Amazing Stories Of Lord Hanuman

YOU MUST KNOW #23

ย Childhood

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

 In one version of the Hindu legend, the king of gods Indra intervened and struck Hanuman with his thunderbolt. It hit Hanuman on his jaw, and he fell to the earth dead with a broken jaw. According to the Ramayana, Hanuman’s father Vayu (air) became upset and withdrew all the air on Earth.

The lack of air created immense suffering for all living beings. This led Lord Shiva to intervene and resuscitate Hanuman, which in turn prompted Vayu to return to the living beings. As the mistake was done by the god Indra, he grants Hanuman a wish that his body would be as strong as Indra’s Vajra, and that his Vajra can also not harm him. 

Along with Indra other gods have also granted him wishes: the God Agni granted Hanuman a wish that fire won’t harm him; God Varuna granted a wish for Hanuman that water won’t harm him; God Vayu granted a wish for Hanuman that he will be as fast as the wind and the wind won’t harm him.

Lord Brahma also granted Hanuman a wish that he can move to any place where he cannot be stopped; Lord Vishnu also grants Hanuman a weapon named “Gada”. Hence these wishes make Hanuman an immortal, who has unique powers and strength.
