Significance

Hanuman is closely associated with Lord Ram. It is believed that if one wants to receive the blessings of Lord Ram, he has to first devote himself to Hanuman, who is believed to be the greatest devotee of Lord Ram. In Ramayana, Hanuman supported Lord Ram along with his army of Vanar Sena in the battle against Ravan.

Hanuman is also known as an avatar of Lord Shiva. This is because his parents Anjana and Kesari sat in devotion and penance to Lord Shiva before his birth. Ultimately, Lord Shiva was pleased with their prayers and Hanuman was born.

On the day of Hanuman Jayanti, idols of Hanuman are worshipped. Devotees go to temples, chant verses from the Hanuman Chalisa and take part in the aarti, which is also accompanied by mantras and chants. Devotees worship Hanuman to ward off evil from their lives and to be blessed with strength.
