Learning from the Great Bhaktas: Hanuman

Wherever the Name of Rama is being read, he is the first one to come and the last one to leave. Hanuman is immortal and he travelled around the world, protecting, giving his blessing to Rama devotees, to whoever prays to Lord Rama.

EXCERPT FROM PARAMAHAMSA VISHWANANDA'S COMMENTARY

Srimad Bhagavatam

Hanuman is considered to be the model of bhakti. He represents how one has to be in one's spiritual path and how devotional one has to be. In this aspect of Hanuman, he is bestowing wisdom and also showing that one doesn't need to fear anything when he is around. 

As you know, Hanuman is an incarnation of Lord Shiva. When Rama came down, all the deities manifested themselves in the form of monkeys – vanara-sena. Hanuman is Shiva himself, actually. That's why it is said: when you pray to Hanuman, you receive the grace of Gauri-Shankar. And as I explained during Rama Navami, the Name Rama is a mixture of om namo narayanaya and om namah shivaya. The first syllable of Rama is in: om namo narayanaya, which is ra, and the second is in om namo shivaya, which is ma.

The Name of Rama is infused in Hanuman through his devotion. He was initiated into the Name of Rama from childhood and his devotion had no limit. Even till now, it is said: wherever the Name of Rama is being read, he is the first one to come and the last one to leave. Hanuman is immortal and he travelled around the world, protecting, giving his blessing to Rama devotees, to whoever prays to Lord Rama.

Bhakta Hanuman Mantra

añjaniḥ-garbha sambhūto
kapīndra sacivottamam |
rāma-priya namastubhyaṁ
hanumān rakṣa sarvadā ||

I take refuge in Hanumān, who was born from the womb of mother Añjanī, and who was the most excellent minister of the king of monkeys, Sugrīva. He is extremely dear to Śrī Rāma; thus, I bow to you, O Hanumān, please protect me always.
