Bal Hanuman Story

Bal Hanuman Story

by Mantra & shlokas on Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 1:29pm

Along with Kesari, Anjana performed intense prayers to Shiva to beget Him as her Child. Pleased with their devotion, Shiva granted them the boon they sought

Different stories are told as to Hanuman's birth. One is that at the time that Anjana was worshipping Lord Shiva, elsewhere, Dasaratha, the king of Ayodhya, was performing the Putrakama Yagna in order to have children. As a result, he received some sacred pudding, to be shared by his three wives, leading to the births of Lord Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrughna

According to Parasara Samhita, Lord Hanuman was born in Venkatachalam (which is now famous by the name Tirupathi). Once Vishnu took the form of Mohini (a form of a beautiful maiden) and appeared to Lord Shiva who was in deep divine bliss. It is said that as a result, Shiva lost a drop of his semen which was full of fire and energy

The world being not able to bear the energy contained in that semen, Vayu (The god of Air, or Wind) carried the semen into Anjana Devi's ear as she was performing a severe penance to please Lord Shiva. Hence Hanuman is also known as Rudra Avatar (Avatar of Maha Shiva)
