In a tale of great daring, Hanuman outsmarts the evil lord into becoming the sacrifice himself, thereby earning the eternal respect of Kali. She appoints Hanuman as her doorkeeper and today many of her temples are seen to have a monkey guarding their doorways. Photo credit: Kashgar.
Hanuman is offered a reward for his bravery and asks only to continue in service to him and to live for as long as men speak of Rama's deeds. He remains as Rama's favourite general to this day. Because of his bravery, perseverance, strength and devoted service, Hanuman is regarded as a perfect symbol of selflessness and loyalty.
Worship of Hanuman helps the individual to counter the bad karma borne out of selfish action, and grants the believer fortitude and strength in his or her own trials during the journey of life. Hanuman is also invoked in fights against sorcery and protective amulets depicting him are extremely popular among his devotees.
Hi there, from time to time I find these prayer flags on the beach near my home. The one I found recently has an ape on it with a head dress and holding a triangular stone. They are always tied to a bamboo pole. I am interested in the meaning. Please email me as I could then send you a pic. The movie is about the decisive fight that took place between Hanuman and Mahiravana, which changed the course of Ramayana.
Most of us have been told that Lord Rama killed Ravana and that was the end of the story. If you follow archaeologist L. Marzulli, you will find that there were beings on the earth that cannot be explained by evolution and modern science. The Anasazis were destroyed by creatures who were half human and half lizard. He was also able to prove the Hobbits once existed. No one can explain in Scientific terms about monkey or elephant faced gods described in Hindu mythology, perhaps these are powerful symbols not meant to be taken literally.
IT is interesting to note that in the terrasses of the Borubudur on Java, Indonesia, a distinctly budist sanctuari, Hanuman is depicted performing his wonderful actions. Kashgar is a legendary city, famous for over years as a melting pot both for revolutionary ideas and new concepts, but also as the key trading post on the Silk Road.
