Today marks Hanuman Jayanti (Hanuman's birthday). Hanuman symbolizes wisdom and strength. Most of all, he is a symbol of absolute devotion, the Monkey God who literally leaps oceans and lifts mountains in the service of his lord Rama. We will honor Hanuman in this Sunday's sadhana by exploring the theme of devotion. We will also listen to and chant the Hanuman Chalisa, a 40-verse hymn in praise of Hanuman traditionally chanted on Hanuman Jayanti. Visit our Resources page to listen to the Hanuman Chalisa, link to its lyrics and translation, and learn more about Hanuman.
