He was a bachelor and is worshipped in all the temples of India. Every temple of Sri Rama contains an icon of Hanuman. Worship of Sri Rama is complete only with the worship of Hanuman. Sant Tulsidas composed the 40 stanzas of Hanuman Chalisa in praise of Hanuman. Hanuman Jayanti is the birth anniversary of Lord Hanuman. One cannot understand Hindu Dharma unless one knows Hanuman – the embodiment of servitude.
Shri Hanuman Mantra
मनोजवं मारुततुल्यवेगं जितेन्द्रियं बुद्धिमतां वरिष्ठं।
वातात्मजं वानरयूथमुख्यं श्रीरामदूतं शरणं प्रपद्ये॥
manojavaṃ mārutatulyavegaṃ jitendriyaṃ buddhimatāṃ variṣṭhaṃ।
vātātmajaṃ vānarayūthamukhyaṃ śrīrāmadūtaṃ śaraṇaṃ prapadye॥
हे मनोहर, वायुवेग से चलने वाले, इन्द्रियों को वश में करने वाले, बुद्धिमानो में सर्वश्रेष्ठ। हे वायु पुत्र, हे वानर सेनापति, श्री रामदूत हम सभी आपके शरणागत है॥
Who is as swift as mind and as fast as wind, the master of the senses and most intelligent.
The son of Lord Vayu and chief among the Vanaras, the messenger of Lord Shriram, I seek refuge in you.
