My Lord Resides In My Heart - Lord Hanuman Statuette

$110.00

In the Hindu faith, Hanuman is known also as 'Anjaneya', is one of the most important personalities in the epic, the Ramayana. He is a vanara who aided Lord Rama ( an avatar of Vishnu) in rescuing His Consort, Sita, from the Rakshasa king Ravana.


He symbolises the pinnacle of bhakti, and is considered to be the eleventh Rudra avatar of Lord Shiva. He is more well-known as the (spiritual) Son of Vayu deva, the Hindu deity of the wind.


Hanuman is the epitome of wisdom, brahmacharya, bhakti (devotion ), valour, righteousness and strength. He is symbolized in Hinduism for his unwavering dedication to righteousness, unstinting performance of entrusted duties, and unfailing talents in serving his chosen master. His indispensable role in reuniting Rama with Sita is likened by some to that of a teacher helping an individual soul realise the divine. While the uninitiated may find it odd to worship "a monkey", to believers, the idea is to revere and worship him for the astounding attributes he represents — attributes that even most humans find impossible to practice.


There is no blessing that he cannot bestow — Sita granted him the power to bestow the eight siddhis and nine types of wealth on others. However, it is believed that these pale when compared to the greatest boon one can receive from Hanuman — the uplifting spiritual qualities that Hanuman himself is known for. It is also held that while Rama did what he believed to be dharma, Hanuman acts out of compassion.


He is easily reachable — just by chanting the name 'Ram'. Conversely, it is also held that the easiest way to attain Lord Rama is to worship Hanuman — verse 33 of the Hanuman Chalisa begins, "Tumharae bhajan Ram ko paavae", which means "by singing hymns about You, Rama is reached".


His devotion for Lord Ram is exemplary. Shortly after Ram was crowned emperor upon his return to Ayodhya, he decided to ceremoniously reward all those who had helped him defeat Ravana. At a grand event in his court, all his friends and allies took turns going up to his throne and being honoured. Hanuman too went up, but not with any desire to be recompensed. Seeing Hanuman come up to him, an emotionally overwhelmed Rama took him into a warm embrace and said that he could never totally honour or repay Hanuman for the help and services he had rendered to the Ram. Sita, however, affectionately insisted that Hanuman deserved honour more than anyone else, and asked him to seek a gift. Hanuman then requested that Sita give him a necklace of precious stones that adorned her neck. When he received it, Hanuman immediately took it apart, and began peering into the stones. Taken aback, many of those present demanded of Hanuman to explain why he was destroying the gift. In reply, Hanuman said that he was looking into the stones to make sure that Rama and Sita were in them, because if they were not, the necklace was of no value to him. At this, a few ridiculed Hanuman, saying his reverence and love for Rama and Sita could not be as deep as he claimed. Upon this, Hanuman tore his chest open, and everyone was stunned to see Rama and Sita literally in his heart.
