Hanuman, also known as Hanumanji, is a Hindu god and a central character in the Hindu epic Ramayana. He is known for his unwavering devotion to Lord Rama and is considered as the embodiment of strength and devotion.
The story of Hanuman begins with his birth to Anjana, a vanara princess, and Kesari, a vanara king. He was born with immense strength and abilities, which he used to serve Lord Rama during his battle against the demon king Ravana.
In the Ramayana, Hanuman played a crucial role in helping Lord Rama find his wife Sita, who had been abducted by Ravana. Hanuman crossed the ocean to reach Lanka, where Sita was being held captive, and burned down a portion of the city with his tail. He eventually located Sita and conveyed Rama's message to her.
Later, Hanuman also helped Lord Rama build a bridge to Lanka to cross over and defeat Ravana in battle. After the battle, Hanuman continued to serve Lord Rama and was regarded as one of the greatest devotees of Lord Rama.
In Hinduism, Hanuman is worshipped as a symbol of strength, courage, and devotion. He is also considered as an incarnation of Lord Shiva and is worshipped as a deity with divine powers.
