Hanuman is a terror to evil forces. Siva blessed him with enormous divine powers. Nandi, taught Hanuman all the Vedas and the scriptural knowledge.
Hanuman is worshipped in different postures holding his weapon, the Mace. He is depicted as a superman flying in the air and carrying a mountain with one hand and the Mace with the other. Hanuman is known by many names as Prasannanjenaya, Veeranjaney, Dhananjaneya, Bhaktanjaneya and so on. Each name signifying his power.
