Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated on the eve of birthday of Lord Hanuman. He is the God who is known for his dedication and obedience to his Guru Lord Ram. He is the monkey God who is invincible and immortal.
Hanuman is believed to be the son of Vayu – the God of wind and was born to the king of monkeys and the queen Anjana on the Chaitra Shukla Purnima – the Full Moon Day of Hindu Calendar Month of Chaitra, that is why he is known as ‘KESERI NANDAN’ and ‘ANJANEYA’. He had great powers as a child and had in fact received a multitude of boons and became a super power. People believe that worshiping him with all your heart can never go vague as he is the only God who is still alive and lives somewhere in the Earth. Let’s know the story of his birth and how did he become the only living God – Mythology of Hanuman Jayanti.
