Best known for his role in the Ramayana, Hanuman's playful nature, amazing physical powers, and selfless devotion to Lord Rama have made him one of the most beloved gods in the Hindu pantheon. As a monkey, he symbolizes the ever-restless human mind. He teaches us that, though everyone is born an animal, anyone can attain the heights of spiritual evolution through perseverance and ardent discipline. Having perfected his mind through bhakti (selfless devotion) to obtain his powers, Hanuman embodies the highest potential we can achieve. In this book Vanamali recounts 36 legendary Hanuman stories-from his birth to his adventures in the Ramayana-and reveals the spiritual lessons, yogic practices, and Vedic astrology aspects they contain. Vanamali shows how Hanuman has the ability to bestow selfless devotion and strength to his devotees and that following his example is the surest path to attracting the blessing of Rama.
MATAJI DEVI VANAMALI has written seven books on the gods of the Hindu pantheon, including Shakti, The Play of God, and The Song of Rama, as well as translating the Bhagavad Gita.
