Lord Hanuman is one of the most popular deities in Hinduism. Lord Hanuman is worshipped in each and every home as a perfect devotee of Lord Rama. Lord Hanuman is also worshipped for the strength and the courage which He bestows on His devotees.
In Sanskrit, ‘Hanu’ means ‘Jaw’ and ‘Man’ means ‘Disfigured’. No wonder, Hanuman’s jaw as a kid was disfigured by none other than Lord Indra who had used his vajra (thunderbolt) against Anjaneya, who took sun as a ripened mango and even went to trace it up in the sky. It was there in the sky that Lord Indra had used his vajra which threw Hanuman straight on the Earth, damaging his jaw forever.
He is also known as Pawanputra, Mahavira, Hanumanta, Anjaneya, Marutatmaja, Mahakaya, Ramaduta ect. Pawanputra Hanuman was an incarnation of Lord Shiva and is considered to be an exemplification of strength, devotion, and perseverance.
Devotees chant Hanuman Mantra to seek His blessings. Some of Lord Hanuman Mantras are very popular as these Mantras are considered highly effective.
