Hanuman was the child of Vayu, the lord of the breeze, and Anjana, a heavenly sprite. Anjana had angered a sage who revealed her to be brought into the world as a monkey. At the point when the sprite asked for pardon, the sage quieted down and said that she would recapture her unique structure after she bore a child who might win extraordinary eminence. Indeed, even as a youngster, Hanuman had incredible abilities. One morning, he saw the sun rising and thought it was an extraordinary yellow ball. He chose to get hold of it so he could play with it. Indra, the lord of divine beings, saw Hanuman jump out of sight and needed to stop him. He threw his weapon, the Vajra (thunderclap) at the young Lord Hanuman. Hanuman fell to earth, injured. Hanuman's enraged father, Vayu, chose to go on a strike until the person who hurt his kid was rebuffed. Vayu's strike made life on earth troublesome. The divine beings realised they needed to appease Vayu. They offered the child a large number of boons. Brahma said that no weapon could at any point hurt Hanuman and that he would have the option to change his structure voluntarily and travel to any place he picked. Indra's boon was that the Vajra would not hurt Lord Hanuman and that his body would be stronger than the weapon. Varuna, the divine force of the sea, offered him security from water. Agni, the lord of fire, favoured him with resistance to fire. Surya, the sun god, enabled him to change the size of his body. Yama favoured him with great wellbeing and eternality. Vishwakarma, the heavenly architect, offered a shelter where Hanuman would be protected from all objects of his creation.
With this multitude of boons, Hanuman turned into an extraordinary fighter who assumed an essential part in the Ramayana. Hanuman is revered as an auxiliary figure in temples devoted to Lord Rama or in holy places committed to Lord Hanuman himself. The last option is by and large swarmed by monkeys, who realise that they can't be abused there. In temples all throughout India, he shows up as a monkey with a red face who stands erect like a human. For his endless support and devotion towards Lord Rama, Hanuman is seen as a model for all human commitment and devotion (bhakti).
