Devotees who wish to gain strength and courage worship Lord Hanuman who is one of the most revered and celebrated deities in Hindu mythology.
There are some things that we don't yet know about Bajrangbali.
Lord Hanuman was an incarnation of Lord Shiva and is known to be a symbol of strength, perseverance, and devotion.
A beautiful woman named Anajana of Lord Brahma’s celestial palace court was cursed by a sage. If she ever fell in love her face would turn into that of a monkey's. On knowing this Lord Brahma thought of helping her out and that's how she took birth on Earth.
Anjana then fell in love with this King Kesari, also known as the monkey king and they got married. Anjana was a devotee of Lord Shiva who was very impressed and in turn, she wished him to be her son so that she would be freed from the curse of the sage.
As King Dashrath was performing a havan where the priest gave him kheer to feed all his wives. A portion from his eldest wife, Kaushlya, was snatched by a bird who went to where Anjana was meditating. Lord Vayu or Pawan, kept the kheer in Anjana’s hand as told by Lord Shiva. Thinking that it was given by Lord Shiva, Anjana ate it and thus gave birth to his incarnation- the son of the Lord of the Winds, Pawan Putra Hanuman.
He put Sindoor all over his body for Lord Rama’s long life
Hanuman was the biggest follower of Lord Rama and when he saw Sita applying sindoor on her forehead, he asked her why she did that to which she replied, “ for Lord Rama’s long life”. Hearing this Hanuman covered his entire body with sindoor.
Although he was a Brahmachari, Lord Hanuman had a son
Makardhwaja was the son of Hanuman, who was born from a fish. After burning Lanka with his tail, Hanuman stopped to cool off his tail in the sea. A fish then swallowed a drop of his sweat and that's how Makardhwaja was conceived.
After the Lanka war, Hanuman went to Himalayas for his service to Lord Rama. He then carved his own version of Ramayana on the stone walls of the Himalayas.
