Hanuman, also known as Bajrangbali or Mahavira, is a Hindu powerful god and an ardent devotee of the god Rama. He is very compassionate, honest, and simple and yet He is also very courageous, full of knowledge and powerful.

He represents total service to humanity. He is acknowledged as an aspect of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. He signifies the possibility of human evolution from a life of pain, fear, negative emotions,  suffering and ignorance to intelligence, knowledge, wisdom, and courage. Every temple of Sri Rama contains an icon of Lord Hanuman. Helping humans and any sentient beings to evolve and emulate qualities of the divine, Lord Hanuman, brings hope and raises the consciousness of the humanity.

More importantly, He signifies the ability of humanity to achieve unlimited power, energy, endurance, and intelligence to do everything.

He is also the main character in the Hindu epic Ramayana and its diverse versions. He is also mentioned in a few other texts, including Mahabharata, the different Puranas and some Jain sacred texts. A monkey (vanara), Hanuman participated in Lord Rama’s war against the demon king Ravana.

Some sacred texts also present him as an incarnation of the Lord Shiva. He is the son of Kesari and Anjana, and is also characterized as the son of the wind-god Vayu, who according to different stories, played an important role in his birth.

The Sanskrit ancient texts mention a few legends about how Mahavira got his name. One sacred legend is that Indra, lord of Svargaloka, struck Lord Hanuman’s jaw during his childhood. Therefore, the child received his name from the words jaw (Hanu in Sanskrit) and disfigured (man in Sanskrit).

Accordingly, the name means “disfigured jaw one”. Another important source says this name comes from the words destroyed ( Han in Sanskrit) and pride (maana in Sanskrit); thus, the name signifies “one whose pride was destroyed”. Some ancient Jain holy texts also mention that Bajrangbali spent his childhood on an island called Hanuruha, which is the origin of his Hanuman name.
