Hanuman Jayanti 2014

By NHSF (UK) Learning Team

Hanuman

15th April 2013 (Chaitra Sud 15 in the Hindu Calendar)

Hanuman Jayanti celebrates the birth of Lord Rama's most ardent devotee, Hanumanji. It is celebrated every year on the full moon day of the Chaitra month.

When we speak or hear of Hanumanji, we instantly think of the ideal sevak who epitomises sewa of the Lord at the very core of His being. Throughout the Ramayana, we see that Hanumanji’s obedience towards God was unfathomable and He is seen as an embodiment of devotion and loyalty to Lord Rama. He is an ideal Karma Yogi (one whose devotion is demonstrated through selfless service, humility and devotion) and is the ideal of Prem (unconditional love), Bhakti (devotion), Satya (truth) Karuna (compassion) and Sewa (Selflessness).
