|Hanuman Jayanti Celebrated in Canada |
April 9, 2009
|On Thursday April 9th 2009, the first full moon day of Chaitra-April equinox -the birthday of ONE who is revered and considered GOD a superman since millenniums by all across Hindu culture ...Hanuman Jayanti was celebrated for 5 days at Mississauga’s Shri Ram Mandir with traditional devotion and fervour lead by Pandit Roopnauth Sharma the spiritual leader, assisted by a well knitted harmonious Kirtan Mandli backed by our musicians and singers through out these 5 days. |
A large number of devotees of Bhagwan Hanuman, kept a constant stream of visitors through the temple complex on all these 5 days on regular intervals, and whole heartedly participated in the Hanuman Jayanti celebration on 9th April.
There are so many legend stories of faith about Bhagwan Hanuman that one reads in ancient books and also sees now on NET and on TV serials .We respect HIS act of faith that has made our own eulogise the super hero of the past and who still resides within and around all of us.
Bhagwan Hanuman acted and overcame super human obstacles, completed herculean tasks he was asked to do by sheer faith in his ''deity ''Rama and inner and physical strengths, HE was naturally endowed with..It needed only a reminder from Rama or a need to do the job for the welfare of the most that HANUMAN came forward to accept the challenges that NO body else could. He did complete the job given to him in the fight between Dharma lawful existence and Adharma perpetrated by likes of Ravana (a Brahmin learned and powerful Chieftain) then.
This month as we celebrate birthday of a original superman --HANUMAN -full of immense strength of knowledge and physique with faithful timely guided right actions for benefit of the humanity, we continue to be inspired by his unique acceptance as a GOD by all Hindus in all the nooks and corners of the vast and 'varied looking' world.
As you hear recitation of Hanuman Chalisa or understand the various meanings of so many eulogising names HE has been called, you would understand his true significance THEN.
Bhagwan Hanuman has been pictured-captured in- fixed in, various IMAGES according to the wisdom faith and imagery of love by various artists of brush and sculptors ..but for me he is more than that above all the limitations imposed by these bound images of faith and love for him by so many..
Bhagwan Hanuman is a picture of a great superman and I bow to all those who follow the great Bhagwan Hanuman as HE acted and have potential to act on behalf of us all and successfully accomplishes super human efforts that benefit the society. My reverence to super hero THE HANUMAN MARUTA ...and his incarnates today and also in advance to those waiting in times to come to evolve into a ''Va Naara hero'' who acts accepting super human challenges overcoming un-surmountable looking obstacles for benefit of civilisation. .Jai Veer Hanuman Jai Siya Var Ram.
It is said Bhagwan Hanuman Ji, possesses ocean-like unfathomable knowledge and virtue, incomparable might and earth-like steadfastness, is known and worshipped primarily as the redeemer in crisis, and those who chant this Chaleesa with devotion get His blessings:
Bhagwan Hanuman, the redeemer, is more widely worshipped and has a larger number of shrines dedicated to him than even Lord Rama, his master. Hanuman's power to redeem is not a mere theological conceptualization or a believer's hypothesis, his life, as it reveals in different sources, is its example. In Rama-katha - story of Rama's life, which is broadly also the story of Hanuman's life, this emissary and servant of Rama often rises above his master at least in the face of a crisis. In theology or tradition of devotion, no God of any pantheon in India or else where in the world is venerated so much for redeeming in crisis as Bhagwan Hanuman by Hindus. As occasions of misfortune outnumber those of happiness in life, mankind looks more to him who redeems from misfortune rather than him who bestows happiness.
'Jaya Hanuman jnana guna sagara, jaya Kapisha tinhu loka ujagara,
'Ko nahi janat hai jaga mein Kapi Sankata-mochana nama tinharo'
Who does not know in the world, O Monkey-god, redeemer in crisis is thy name. And, the laudation is least exaggerated. Whatever Rama's attributes as the supreme God or Vishnu's incarnation, when broken hearted he wandered in search of Sita, Hanuman came to his aid.
