Hanuman was born in Poorvabhadra nakshatra.Meena Rasi , moon sign Pisces . Since this sign is 9th in an angle(kona) to cancer,this shows natural compatibilty with Ram . His thoughts matched that of Rama, his actions were acceptable and in accordance with Rama’s plan. Hanuman born in cancer ascendant with jupiter in ascendant in simhasanamsa , saturn in devalokamsa , and mars in paravatamsa , indicates limitless longevity ,he is still living in Kimpurush Khanda of Bhuloka. Lord Ram dedicated his Roopa to Hanuman to exclusively worship.
Person born in cancer ascendant with jupiter and moon there, with venus and mercury in angles enjoy limitless longevity amitaayu.All people with extraordinary longevity are born ,when cancer rises and few brilliant combinations. Other ascendants invariably kills man.
Hanuman never faced any death like situation in his entire avatara, even bramhastra also only bound him ( that he permitted it ).His tail was set afire , did agni (fire) cause him any heat and burn? No. Hanuman was hotter than Fire ,how ? Lanka was a fire poof city , ordinary fire could not burn it , then Hanuman burnt Lanka . Was it with fire in his tail ( no chance) , He burnt it with heat (tezas) emanating from his body. He killed 85 crore rakshas in ashoka vatika in just an hour . Later he killed 1/3 of the Ravanas’ army. What an assault!Single handedly.
When Indrajit used Nagapasha astra , whole of the vanar sena(monkey army) died. Laxmana fell unconscious , Rama too became immovable ,closed his eyes , sumanta(brahaspati), jambavanta (immortal) was also immobilized but were breathing.
here interesting dialogue takes place between brahaspati and dharma(jambavanta) . Brahaspati says” oh elder one , all of us were fooled by this mortal Rama , we all thought he was God and followed HIM to this war , Indrajit has finished the entire army, look Rama is also lying dead. You were wise and elder to all of us ,how could you mislead us all into this misfortune , lying and waiting for death in the battlefield. I say there is no GOD ,else how come these Asuras have triumphed today , we supposedly fighting for Dharma (righteousness) have failed miserably.”
[ Brahaspati is author of the great nyaya shastra ( Logic) , which essentially undermines presence of GOD. his comments reflect this atheist conclusion]
Jambavan( represents Dharma) replies ” oh learned priest , you are mistaken , my experience cannot betray me , Lord Rama is indeed God , here He might be enacting some leela.( playful act).just look around and see if anyone is alive “.
Brahaspati says” All are dead except Hanuman who seem to be intact ” Jambavan says ” then we are all are intact just take shelter in Hanuman , have faith in him , we will be out of troubles”.
When these were engaged in fruitless discussion , Hanuman spared no time in flying to Himalayas to bring sanjeevani . Himalayas are two , one beyond Kashmir ,uttaranchal , and another bordering BharatKhanda and Kimpurush khanda. Hanuman looks for herbs since they are not visible( these herbs make themselves visible to the needy) Even when God’s army needed these herbs showed arrogance hence Hanuman uprooted entire mountain,
Now a mountain means an entire ecosystem. There are tribes living on a mountain, animals ,trees many inhabitants with their houses ,children and flora and fauna. Uprooting it would mean bringing an earthquake like situation, creating chaos and danger to this ecosystem. These living beings on this mountain would be left devastated, uprooting would leave a big hole there on the earth . Did Hanuman disturb this creatures on the mountain?
No , Hanuman executed a lateral blow to the Mountain such that it slided on to his fist without even disturbing a smallest pebble stone on the mountain, the cut left no hole but a clean level playground. . Hanuman flew towards Lanka, mountain had four herbs,Sashailikarni.Savrittikarni,Savarnikarni,and Sanjeevani . These herbs acted just by their smell alone, application of herbs was not neccessary.
In a war many weapons and missiles are used , some pierce body and break bone and cuts and wounds and some die. If some one injured is treated , his bones may be set, his cuts may be stitched , but still he would look horrible ,disfigured and would perhaps prefer death than this ugliness, His mental wounds would never be pacified. So much for a WAR.
These herbs automatically removes pieces of missiles from the body( sashailikarni), sets the bones stronger( savrittikarni), stitches the wounds and brings back normal skin color and hue ( savarnikarni) and if somebody’s dead it brings them back to life( sanjeevani) . Hanuman brings all of these ( entire army) back to life . Laxmana is also cured . brahaspati and jambavan recover , Hanuman does not go back to himalaya to keep the mountain. He tosses the mountain playfully with his left hand such that it sits back at its original place more intactly than before without disturbing anyone
All this happened in a just three NIMISHA . nimisha is a time taken by a person to wink his eyelids . even before one could wink thrice , whole army was upright and more charged and waiting to finish Indrajit. What a feat by Hanuman ! A mans’ accomplishments earns appreciation only when we know how difficult the task was, how remote was a possibility of the solution,and how perfectly it was executed and how easily it was achieved , speaks volumes of the intelligence , valour,capacity,strength and knowledge of Hanuman.
After this Hanuman garlands Lord Rama with both hands and takes almost 1 1/2 hour to complete this task.( This for him was more serious and important task requiring his greater attention)
Philosophic interpretation of the above incident: There are times in this world when evil takes over reigns , everything is smashed , even GOD appears to be silent , people with usual and ordinary intellect declare non existence of truth . All can get smashed but knowledge and Dharma still survives.( jambavan) Hanuman.( devotion, unattachement, divine teachings ) always remain intact. We face many such situation in life when there is only gloom and no hopes , God does not seem to help us , we think o HIM as otherwise, There seems to be no solution to our problems. Solution if one exists, it is highly remote( like himalayas ) and sometimes unthinkable ( like sanjeevani miraculous does not appear). but instead of arguing about our misfortunes and debating on presence of GOD ( like brahaspati) , if we stick to devotion and think of Hanuman ( like jambavan) , however impossible our state may be . however impossible the recovery may be , He is going to get it for us in just three winks , even before you finish your worship, your sanjeevani is there to rejuvenate you .In this world when we are attacked with evil designs , misfortunes, our state of mind is beyond repair, even if we seek some worldly remedies our state is still disfigured like a wounded soldier in the war.
But think of Hanuman , all your problems are solved . This incident Rama has enacted only to highlight Hanuman. Thinking of God present elsewhere doesn’t Help people , Thinking of God as present in Hanuman brings invincible results .
Such is the greatness of Hanuman Jai Hanuman . HOME PAGE
