On this day, only male devotees fast. Because of the change in the calendar, the observance of this day varies by geographical location. Although it is well known that Hanuman is the son of Kesari and Anjana, Pavan Deva or Vayu Deva (God of Wind) also played a significant part in his creation. That is why Rudra (another name for Hanuman) is often referred to as Pavan Putra, Vayu's son.

In Hanuman Chalisa, the verse 'Bhoot Pisaach Nikat Nahi Aawe, Mahabir Jab Naam Sunave' signifies Mahavira removing all negativity from his disciples' lives. Hanuman, also known as Rudra, is a Hindu god who exorcizes evil spirits from people's lives. Mahavira was given the appellation 'Sankat Mochan' for these reasons.

Lord Hanuman is Lord Shiva's 11th Rudra manifestation (Avatar). Bajrangbali dedicated his entire life to Lord Rama and Maa Sita. It is said that chanting the Hanuman Chalisa can bring you health, money, and success and help you overcome all kinds of fears. 

We will now go deeper into some interesting facts regarding Hanuman Jayanti in this article.

Hanuman Jayanti 2022 : Date, Muhurat and Best Worship Time

Hanuman Jayanti 2022 will take place on Saturday, April 16th. Hanuman Jayanti is one of India's most important festivals; hence it is observed with immense enthusiasm. Because Lord Hanuman was born at sunrise, prayers are said, and Maruti or Mahavira is worshiped before morning. Following that, they visit Lord Hanuman's temple to appease Anjaneya (Bajrangi) and express a wish to the Lord. 

Lord Hanuman's or Bajrangbali's Birth

Hanuman, also known as Mahavira, is the son of Apsara Anjana. She was born on Earth in the shape of a female vanara (monkey) due to a curse. She needed to give birth to an Avatar (incarnation) of Lord Shiva to be free of condemnation. Anjana and Kesari (Hanuman's father) worshiped Lord Shiva with complete devotion and penance (Tapasya). 

Lord Shiva was pleased by their commitment and respect for the god. As a result, he bestowed the boon upon them, and Hanuman was born to them. As a result, Mahavira is also known as a Shiva avatar.

What Causes Lord Hanuman's Idol to Be Reddish-Orange in Color?

It will be beneficial to understand the hidden cause for this query before celebrating Hanuman Jayanti. Rudra is claimed to have been born in the Vanara (monkey) community with a reddish-orange-colored physique. As a result, Maruti or Mahavira's statues are always painted in the same hue.

Other traditions claim that Goddess Sita was applying Sindoor (vermilion) when Lord Hanuman inquired as to the explanation for her actions. She explained to him that she was doing it for her husband's longevity. She also told Bajrangbali that the more Sindoor she applies, the longer Lord Rama's life would be. Lord Hanuman, a devout devotee of the Lord, plastered Sindoor all over his body to immortalize Lord Rama. That is why Lord Hanuman's idols are usually coated with Sindoor.
