Hanuman Pooja

Several epochs or yugas before, when Shiva wanted to manifest himself as an incarnation of true love, devotion, and selflessness, he took the form of Hanuman. He also became a great devotee of Rama and was instrumental in bringing back Goddess Sita, who was abducted by the demon, Ravana, who kept her in the forest of Srilanka.

He was born to the God of Vayu, Pavan, and possessed a lot of powers even as a child. He was able to manifest several miracles and even led the army of apes several times, under the reign of King Vali and his brother King Sugreeva.

Lord of Benevolence:

It is always believed that where there is a pure form of Rama’s worship, Hanuman will be present automatically. He is called Chiranjeevi (immortal) and promises  Rama that he will be present in the heart of Rama’s worshipers and would immediately attend the call of his devotees and protect them like an amulet. He roams this world in his invisible form and listens to the voice and inner calls of his devotees.

When to perform Pooja:

Tuesday is considered as the day of Hanuman and it is good to perform Hanuman pooja on this day. Especially, if the pooja is performed during early mornings, it brings a lot of benefits. When observed with complete faith, this brings a lot of positivity and blessings like successful manifestations of all pursuits, great courage, good physical and mental strength and magnificent honor.

It is important to consume just one meal a day and abstain from eating garlic, onion and meat. Consuming a meal just once and that too dishes made of jaggery is highly preferred. In the evening, it is important to read Chalisa once again and offer prasadams to Hanuman before consuming it.
