I, bow down to Hanuman Ji Maharaj, who is the slayer of demons and who is present with his head bowed and eyes full of flowing tears, wherever the glory-fame of Bhagwan Shri Ram is sung.
हनुमान जी महाराज चिरंजीवी, अजर, अमर हैं।  भगवान् श्री राम के वरदान से, जब तक पृथ्वी लोक में उनका नाम स्मरण किया जायेगा, तब तक हनुमान जी महाराज यहाँ भक्तों का भला करते रहेंगे। जहाँ-जहाँ राम कथा होगी वहाँ-वहाँ  हनुमान जी महाराज मौजूद रहेंगे। यदि भगवान् राम मर्यादा पुरुषोत्तम हैं तो हनुमान जी की भक्ति बेमिसाल-अद्वितीय है।
Maa Anjana was an Apsara (-divine woman figure in heaven) who took birth on earth due to a curse. She was redeemed from this curse on her giving birth to a son. Kesri was the son of Dev Guru Vrahaspati. Kesri also fought on Ram's side in the war against Ravan. Anjana and Kesri performed intense prayers to Bhagwan Shiv to get a child. Pleased with their devotion, Bhagwan Shiv granted them the boon, they sought. Hanuman, is the incarnation or reflection of Bhagwan Shiv himself.
Vayu's role in Hanuman's birth: Hanuman is the son of the deity Vayu-Pawan Dev. When Anjana was worshiping Bhagwan Shiv, the King Dashrath of Ayodhya was also performing the ritual of Putrkam-Putryeshthi Yagy, with the help and expertise of Shrang Rishi, to have children. Agni Dev appeared with sacred pudding (-खीर) to be shared by his three wives, leading to the births of Ram, Laxman, Bharat, Shtrughan and a daughter. By divine ordinance, a kite snatched a fragment of that pudding and dropped it, while flying over the forest, where Anjana was engaged in worship. Vayu, the deity of the wind, delivered the falling pudding to the outstretched hands of Anjana, who consumed it. By Shiv's blessings, Vayu transferred his male energy-sperms preserved since Mohini Avtar, to Anjana's womb.
Narad got infatuated with a princess, went to Bhagwan Vishnu, to make him look like him-Hari mukh (-his face identical to him i.e., Hari-Vishnu हरी-विष्णु and mukh, मुख, face, Hari stands for Vanar as well). He wanted the princess to garland him at the Swayamvar (-स्वयंवर, husband-choosing-selection ceremony).  Vishnu instead bestowed him with the face of a Vanar. Unaware of this, Narad went to the princess, who burst into laughter at the sight of his ape like face before all the king's court. Narad, unable to bear the humiliation, cursed Bhagwan Vishnu, that he would one day be dependent upon the Vanars, unaware of the fact that it was a pre planned episode-design. Bhagwan Vishnu consoled and explained Narad Ji that what he had done was for his own sake-benefit, as he would have undermined his own powers had he entered matrimony. Upon hearing this, Narad repented for cursing his idol. Though the Almighty is not affected by any curse, yet he accepted it happily. Bhagwan Vishnu told him not repent as the curse would act as a boon, for it would lead to the birth of Hanuman, an avatar-incarnation of Bhagwan Shiv, without whose help Ram (-Vishnu's avatar) could not kill Ravan.
मोहिनी अवतार के समय भगवान् शिव का वीर्य स्खलित हो गया था, जिसे ऋषियों ने अग्निहोत्र के माध्यम से सुरक्षित रखा हुआ था। इसके दो जन्म पूर्व माता अञ्जनी ने भगवान शिव की आराधना कर एक अद्वितीय पुत्र प्राप्ति का वरदान पाया था। जो वीर्यपात पृथ्वी पर जहाँ-जहाँ हुआ, वहीँ पर सोने और चाँदी की खानें बन गईं। The sperms were preserved for the events, which were going to take place in future, for killing Ravan in Treta Yug, in which Shri Hanuman Ji Maharaj had a very crucial role. उस वीर्य को पवन देव ने माता अञ्जनी के गर्भ में स्थापित कर दिया। इस जन्म के पीछे नारद जी का भगवान् विष्णु का श्राप भी था, जिसमें नारद जी ने भगवान् विष्णु को रामावतार में वानरों की सहायता लेने के लिए कहा गया था।

भगवान् सूर्य के वर से सुवर्ण के बने हुए सुमेरु में वानर राज केसरी का राज्य था। पूर्व जन्म में एक साथ भगवान् शिव की आराधना करने से वर्तमान जन्म में वे दोनों पति-पत्नी हुए। संतान सुख से वंचित माता अंजना मतंग ऋषि के पास गईं। मंतग ऋषि ने पुत्र सुख की प्राप्ति हेतु उनसे पप्पा सरोवर के पूर्व में एक नरसिंहा आश्रम और दक्षिण दिशा में नारायण पर्वत पर स्वामी तीर्थ में जाकर उसमें स्नान करके, बारह वर्ष तक तप एवं उपवास करने के लिए कहा। अंजना ने मतंग ऋषि एवं अपने पति वानर राज केसरी की अनुमति से  तप किया वे बारह वर्ष तक केवल वायु का ही भक्षण करके तप करती रहीं।  पवन देव ने भगवान् शिव के वरदान की पूर्ति हेतु माता अंजना को शुचिस्नान के समय उनके कर्ण रन्ध्र में प्रवेश कर तपस्या के वक्त आश्वासन दिया कि उनके यहाँ सूर्य, अग्नि एवं सुवर्ण के समान तेजस्वी, वेद-वेदांगों का मर्मज्ञ, विश्वन्द्य महाबली पुत्र होगा। जिसके परिणामस्वरूप माता अंजना को पुत्र की प्राप्ति हुई। वायु के द्वारा उत्पन्न इस पुत्र को ऋषियों ने वायु पुत्र नाम दिया। 
Hanuman Ji and his mother Anjana, 
at the Anjani Mata temple, Chomu.
Hanuman was born on Anjney Hill, in Hampi, Karnatak. This is located near the Rishymuk mountain, near the lake called Pampa Sarovar, where Sugreev and Ram met. There is a temple that marks the spot. Kishkindha itself is identified with the modern Anegundi Taluk (-near Hampi) in Bellary district of Karnatak.
Anjan, a small village about 18 km away from Gumla, houses Anjan Dham, which is said to be the birthplace of Hanuman. The name of the village is derived from the name of Anjani, the mother of Hanuman. Anjani Gufa (-cave), 4 km from the village, is believed to be the place where Anjani once lived. 


The Anjaneri mountain, located 7 km from Trayambkeshwar-Jyotir Ling, in the Nasik district, is also claimed as the birthplace of Hanuman. 
listen-indian-story-and-hindi-story-in-hindi-hanuman-ji-ki-janam-kathaThere appears to be a conflict between the same event to have taken place at different places according to Purans. One must remember that these events happen in cyclic order like the beads of a rosary, coming back to the same place after counting up to 108. So, there is no contradiction as the same event occured with slightly different characters and the location.
Hanuman met Shri Ram in the dense forest of mountain hill near Khurd, Bhubneshwar. It is believed that the mountain was once the kingdom of Bali (-The Monkey King), where Bali defeated a Asur-Rakshas-demon in a cave, fighting for 15 days and 15 nights. 
दो प्रहर बाद सूर्योदय होते ही उन्हें भूख लगी। माता अञ्जनी फल लाने गई थीं। 
इधर लाल वर्ण के सूर्य को फल मानकर हनुमानजी उसको लेने के लिए आकाश में उछल गए। अमावस्या होने से सूर्य को ग्रसने के लिए राहु आया था, किंतु हनुमानजी को देखकर वह डर गया। तब सूर्य की रक्षा हेतु देवराज इन्द्र ने हनुमानजी पर वज्र-प्रहार किया, जिससे  उनकी ठोड़ी-हनु टेढ़ी हो गई और वे हनुमान कहलाए। राम भक्त, भगवान् शिव के अंशावतार हनुमान जी को पवन सुत, केसरी नंदन, वातात्मज, अञ्जनेय  आदि नामों से पुकारा जाता है।
Hanuman Ji looked at the Sun and thought it was a ripe mango and flew towards it to eat it. Hanuman Ji pursued it in order to eat it. Rahu-a demon who could drink a few drops of Amrat, (-planet corresponding to an eclipse), was at that time seeking out the Sun as well and he clashed with Hanuman. Hanuman thrashed Rahu and went to take Sun in his mouth. Rahu approached Indr, king of Devs-deities and complained that a monkey child stopped him from taking on Sun, preventing the scheduled eclipse. This enraged Indr, who responded by throwing the Vajr (-thunderbolt) at Hanuman, which struck his jaw. He fell back down on the earth and became unconscious. A permanent mark was left on his chin (-हनुः hanu-jaw), due to impact of Vajr, explaining his name. Upset over the attack, Hanuman's father figure Vayu Dev (-deity of air) went into seclusion, withdrawing air along with him. As living beings began to asphyxiate, Indr withdrew the effect of his thunderbolt. The Devs then revived Hanuman and blessed him with multiple boons to appease Vayu.
Brahma Ji gave Hanuman a boon that would protect him from the irrevocable Brahma's curse. Brahma also blessed that nobody will be able to kill him with any weapon in war. From Brahma he obtained the power of inducing fear in enemies, of destroying fear in friends, to be able to change his form at will and to be able to travel easily wherever he wished. From Bhagwan Shiv he obtained the boons of longevity, scriptural wisdom and ability to cross the ocean. Shiv assured safety of Hanuman with a band that would protect him for life. Indr blessed him that the Vajr (-weapon) will no longer be effective on him and his body would become stronger than Vajr. Varun blessed baby Hanuman with a boon that he would always be protected from water. Agni blessed him with immunity to burning by fire. Sury gave him two siddhis of Yog namely Laghima and Garima, to be able to attain the smallest or to attain the biggest form. Yam, the deity of Death blessed him healthy life and free from his weapon Yam dand, thus death would not come to him. Kuber showered his blessings declaring that Hanuman would always remain happy and contented. Vishwkarma blessed  that Hanuman would be protected from all his creations in the form of objects or weapons. Vayu also blessed him with more speed than he himself had. Kam Dev blessed him that the sex will not be effective on him.

इंद्र की इस धृतष्टा से रुष्ट होकर पवन देव ने संचार बंद कर दिया। तभी देवताओं की विनती पर ब्रह्मा जी समस्त देवगणों के साथ बाल  हनुमान के समक्ष प्रकट हुए और सभी ने अपने अपने आयुद्ध और अपने शक्तियाँ प्रदान कीं। ब्रह्मा जी  ने अमितायु का, इन्द्र ने वज्र से हत न होने का, सूर्य ने अपने शतांश तेज से युक्त और संपूर्ण शास्त्रों के विशेषज्ञ होने का, वरुण ने पाश और जल से अभय रहने का, यम ने यमदंड से अवध्य और पाश से नाश न होने का, कुबेर ने शत्रु मर्दिनी गदा से निःशंख रहने का, शंकर ने प्रमत्त और अजेय योद्धाओं से जय प्राप्त करने का और विश्वकर्मा ने मय के बनाए हुए सभी प्रकार के दुर्बोध्य और असह्य, अस्त्र, शस्त्र तथा यंत्रादि से कुछ भी क्षति न होने का वर दिया। 
On the advice of Dev Rishi Narad Hanuman Ji decided to seek learning from Bhagwan Sury Narayan. He requested Bhagwan Sury to accept him as a disciple-student. Sury refused and explained that he was always  moving in his chariot making it difficult to impart education. Undeterred, Hanuman Ji enlarged his form, adjusting his body into an orbit around the Sun with one leg on the eastern ranges-horizon and the other on the western ranges and pleaded again facing Sury. Pleased by his persistence, Sury agreed. Hanuman learnt all the 64 disciplines of knowledge. Hanuman Ji requested Sury to quote his guru-dakshina (-teacher's fee, remuneration), Sury Bhagwan politely refused, saying that the pleasure of teaching one as dedicated as him was the fee in itself. Hanuman Ji insisted, whereupon Sury asked him to help his spiritual son Sugriv. Hanuman's choice of Sury as his teacher is said to signify Sury as a Karm Sakshi, an eternal witness of all deeds. Hanuman Ji Maha Raj later became Sugreev's minister.
Hanuman was naughty in his early childhood. He used to tease the meditating sages in the forests by snatching their personal belongings and by disturbing their well-arranged articles of worship.  Ravan too was disturbed by Hanuman Ji while he was meditating along with Kumbh Karn and Vibhishan Ji. Ravan was afraid of Hanuman Ji un aware of the fact that he was an incarnation of Bhagwan Shiv, worshipped by him. Finding his antics unbearable, but realizing that Hanuman was but just a child, (-albeit invincible), the sages placed a mild curse on him which made him forget all his powers-strength-wisdom. They relaxed the curse by saying that he would regain his divine powers as soon as some one reminded him of his abilities. When the Vanar Sena reached ocean Jamvant the mighty son of Brahma Ji in the grab-form of a bear reminded Hanuman Ji of his abilities-supernatural powers-blessing from all deities and encouraged him to go and find Sita. 
माता सीता का हरण रावण के द्वारा किये जाने पर भगवान् राम वन-वन भटकते हुए ॠषिमुख पर्वत के समीप पहुँचे, जहाँ सुग्रीव अपने अनुयाईयों के साथ, अपने ज्येष्ठ भ्राता बाली से छिपकर रहते थे। सूर्य पुत्र किष्किन्धा नरेश वानर राज बाली ने इन्द्र के पुत्र और अपने छोटे भाई सुग्रीव को एक गम्भीर मिथ्याबोध के चलते अपने साम्राज्य से बाहर निकाल दिया था और वो किसी भी तरह से सुग्रीव के तर्क को सुनने के लिये तैयार नहीं था।उसने सुग्रीव की पत्नी को भी अपने पास रख लिया। तभी सुग्रीव ने माता सीता को खोजते हुए भगवान् श्री राम और लक्ष्मण जी को देखा और हनुमान जी को उनके विषय में जानकारी प्राप्त करने को भेजा, क्योकि वे बाली से छुप कर रह रहे थे और उन्हें डर था कि कहीं साधुवेश धारी भगवान् श्री राम और लक्ष्मण जी बाली के गुप्तचर न हों। भगवान् सूर्य के शिष्य हनुमान जी की सुग्रीव के साथ मित्रता थी। हनुमान जी देवताओं द्वारा प्रदत्त अपनी समस्त शक्तियों को श्राप वश भूल चुके थे। 
हनुमान् एक ब्राह्मण के वेश में अपने आराध्य भगवान्  श्री राम के सम्मुख गये। हनुमान के मुख़ से प्रारम्भिक संवाद को सुनकर  भगवान् श्री राम ने शेषनाग अवतार लक्ष्मण जी  से कहा कि कोई भी बिना वेद-पुराण को जाने ऐसा नहीं बोल सकता, ब्राह्मण वेष धारी हनुमान जी ने बोला। राम जी को उस ब्राह्मण के मुख, नेत्र, माथा, भौंह या अन्य किसी भी शारीरिक संरचना से कुछ भी मिथ्या प्रतीत नहीं हुआ। रामजी ने लछ्मण से कहा कि इस ब्राह्मण के मन्त्र मुग्ध उच्चारण को सुनके तो शत्रु भी अस्त्र त्याग देगा। उन्होंने ब्राह्मण की और प्रशंसा करते हुए कहा कि वो नरेश  निश्चित ही सफ़ल होगा जिसके पास ऐसा गुप्तचर होगा। श्री राम के मुख़ से इन सब बातों को सुनकर हनुमानजी ने अपना वास्तविक रूप धारण किया और श्री राम के चरणों में नत मस्तक हो गये। श्री राम ने उन्हें अपने ह्रदय से लगा लिया। भक्त और भगवान का हनुमान जी और प्रभु राम के रूप मे अटूट और अनश्वर मिलन हुआ। हनुमान जी ने श्रीराम और सुग्रीव की मित्रता करवाई।  श्री राम ने बाली को मारकर सुग्रीव को उनका सम्मान और गौरव वापस दिलाया।
During the course of 14 year exile, Bhagwan Shri Ram was staying in the jungle, where Ravan's sister Surpnakha's nose was chopped off by Laxman Ji. Enraged, she protested to her brother Ravan, who sent a number of demons to defeat Bhagwan Shri Ram and ultimately, he him self reached the spot in the grab of a bhikshu-beggar. Khar Dushan and Marich were killed. Ravan abducted Mata Sita and took her to Shri Lanka in the Pushpak Viman-aero plane, snatched from his elder brother Kuber. Bhagwan Ram and Laxman Ji started searching her in the forests, meeting Hanuman Ji at Rishymuk Parwat-mountains.
Sugreev, along with his followers and friends, was in hiding afraid of his older brother Bali. Having seen saffron clad Ram and Laxman, Sugreev sent Hanuman Ji to ascertain their identities. Hanuman Ji approached the two brothers in the guise of a Brahman. His first words to them were so elaborate and precise that Bhagwan Shri Ram was deeply impressed and he expressed his sentiment to Laxman Ji, by saying that none could speak the way the Brahman did, unless he had mastered the Ved. He visualized the defect less countenance, eyes, forehead, brows, limb and the stature of the Brahman. He was extremely pleased with Hanuman Ji and added that his accent was so captivating that even an enemy with sword drawn, would be moved. He showered praises over the disguised Hanuman, saying that sure success awaited the king, whose emissaries were as accomplished as he was. Bhagwan Shiv had taken Hanuman Ji Maha Raj to Ayodhya to acquaint him with the incarnation of the Almighty Bhagwan Vishnu as Ram, in the grab of a Madari-jugular and Hanuman Ji as his pet monkey. The meeting took place in solitude. Bhagwan Ram recognised Hanuman Ji Maha Raj at once but Hanuman Ji had forgotten every thing due to the curse of Rishis.
भगवान् राम ने सुग्रीव का किष्किन्धा के राज्य सिंहासन पर अभिषेक किया। चौमासा समाप्त होते ही वानर सेना ने दक्षिण की और प्रस्थान किया। माता की खोज में वानरों का एक दल दक्षिण समुद्र तट पर पहुँचा। इतने विशाल सागर को लाँघने की शक्ति और सामर्थ किसी में नहीं थी। ब्रह्मा जी के पुत्र जामवन्त ने हनुमान जी को उनकी अदभुत शक्तियों का स्मरण कराया। गृद्ध जटायु के बड़े भाई और ब्रह्मा जी पुत्र सम्पाति ने ऊँची उड़ान भरी और उन्होंने माता सीता को रावण की लँका में अशोक वाटिका में बैठा पाया। इसके सुचना उन्होंने तत्काल जाम्बन्त जी को दी। अपनी शक्तियों का स्मरण होते ही हनुमान ने अपना रूप विस्तार किया और पवन-वेग से सागर को उड़ कर पार करने लगे। रास्ते में उन्हें एक पर्वत मिला और उसने हनुमान से आग्रह किया  कि वे थोड़ा विश्राम कर लें। हनुमान जी ने किन्चित मात्र भी समय व्यर्थ ना करते हुए पर्वतराज को धन्यवाद किया और आगे बढ़ चले। आगे चलकर उन्हें माँ सुरसा मिलीं,  जिन्होंने हनुमान जी को कहा कि अगर आगे जाना है तो उन्हें माँ सुरसा के मुख में प्रवेश करना होगा। हनुमान ने उस  चुनौती को स्वीकार किया और बड़ी ही चतुराई से अति लघुरूप धारण करके सुरसा  के मुख में प्रवेश करके बाहर आ गये। माता सुरसा ने उन्हें आशीर्वाद दिया कि  उन्हें अपने कार्य में सफलता हासिल हो। हनुमान जी ने बुद्धिमता की परीक्षा में निपुणता सिद्ध कर दी थी। 
Bhagwan Shri Ram introduced himself and Laxman Ji, to the Brahman, who identified himself as Hanuman and prayed to Shri Ram by prostrating him self over the earth-ground. Bhagwan immediately embraced him warmly. Hanuman Ji accompanied Shri Ram to Sugreev leading to friendship and alliance between them. Bhagwan Shri Ram killed Bali and appointed Sugreev as the king of  Kishkindha establishing his honour. All the deities, Devs took incarnation as Vanars from their respective forms-fractions-quantum to assist Bhagwan Shri Ram.
Many teams of Vanars were formed and sent all over the earth. In the mean while Choumasa-rainy season चौमासा passed and Bhagwan Ram encountered Jatayu, Bhagwan Brahma's son, who fought a loosing battle with Ravan. Jatayu informed Bhagwan Ram that it was Ravan, who had abducted Mata Sita to Shri Lanka.  He was an ardent  devotee of Shri Ram. Jatayu's elder brother Sampati reached the spot and surveyed the periphery of the ocean informing them of the presence of Mata Sita in Lanka.
The Vanars headed for sea shore. Upon encountering the vast ocean, every Vanar began to lament his inability to jump across vast ocean. Hanuman Ji too  saddened at the possible failure of his mission, until the other Vanars and the wise bear Jamvant-Brahma's son, began to extol his virtues. Hanuman Ji immediately remembered everything and recollected all his powers. He enlarged his body and flew across the ocean. On his way, he encountered a mountain which raised from the sea, proclaiming that it owed his father a debt and asked him to rest for a while, before proceeding further. Hanuman Ji thanked the mountain, touched it and moved further. He encountered Maan Sursa, who challenged him to enter her mouth. Hanuman Ji outwitted her by assuming smallest size entered her mouth and came out swiftly, immediately. She praised Hanuman Ji of wisdom and blessed him with success in his mission.  He encountered Singhika, a Rakshasi-demoness and reached Lanka.
हनुमान सागर पार करके लंका पँहुचे और लंका की शोभा और सुन्दरता देखकर दंग रह गये। और उनके मन में इस बात का दुःख भी हुआ कि  रावण के कारण  भव्य  लंका का तहस-नहस हो जायेगी।गृद्धराज  सम्पाती के बताये गये स्थल पर उन्होंने अशोक-वाटिका में माता सीता को देखा। उन्होंने राम नाम का उच्चारण किया और माँ के समक्ष प्रस्तुत हुए और भगवान् राम के अनुचर के रूप में अपना परिचय दिया। उन्होंने माता को विश्वास दिलाने के लिये चूड़ामणि माँ को दी जो कि प्रस्थान के समय प्रभु राम ने उन्हीं सौंपी थी। उन्होंने माता सीता को सांत्वना दी और साथ ही वापस प्रभु श्रीराम के पास साथ चलने का आग्रह भी किया। मगर माता सीता ने ये कहकर अस्वीकार कर दिया कि ऐसा होने पर श्रीराम के पुरुषार्थ् को ठेस पँहुचेगी। हनुमान ने माता सीता को प्रभु श्री राम के सन्देश का ऐसे वर्णन किया जैसे कोई महान ज्ञानी लोगों को ईश्वर की महानता के बारे में बताता है।
Hanuman Ji traced Mata Sita in Ashok Batika-grove, as directed by Sampati-the vulture form of divine bird-Brahma Ji's son and showed her the ring-Chudamani sent by Bhagwan Ram to her to win the faith-confidence of Maa Sita. 
He revealed his identity to her, reassured her that Ram had been looking for her and uplifted her spirits. He offered to carry her back to Ram, but Maa refused his offer, saying it would be an insult to Ram as his honour was at stake, as it would be against his dignity. After meeting Maa Sita, Hanuman began to wreak havoc, gradually destroying the palaces and properties of Lanka. He killed many Rakshas, including Jambu Mali and Akshay Kumar-Ravan's son. To subdue him, Ravan's son Indr Jeet used the Brahmastr. Though immune to it, out of respect to Brahma Ji, Hanuman Ji allowed himself to be tied-bound, deciding to use the opportunity to meet Ravan and to assess the strength of Ravan's hordes, Hanuman allowed the Rakshas warriors to parade him through the streets. He conveyed Ram's message of warning and demanded the safe return of Sita. He also informed Ravan that Ram would be willing to forgive him if he returned Sita honorably.
Enraged, Ravan ordered Hanuman's execution, whereupon Ravan's brother Vibhishan-a stout devotee of Bhagwan Ram, intervened, pointing out that it would be against the rules of diplomacy-engagement to kill a messenger. Ravan then ordered Hanuman's tail be lit afire, since the Vanars had a lot of love for their tail. As Ravan's forces attempted to wrap cloth around his tail, Hanuman began to lengthen it. After frustrating them for a while, he allowed it to ignited and escaped from his captors. With his tail on fire he burnt down large parts of Lanka. After extinguishing his flaming tail in the sea, he returned to Ram.माता सीता से मिलने के पश्चात, हनुमान प्रतिशोध लेने के लिये लंका को तहस-नहस करने लगे। उनको बंदी बनाने के लिये रावण पुत्र मेघनाद (-इन्द्रजीत) ने ब्रह्मास्त्र का प्रयोग किया। ब्रह्मा जी का सम्मान करते हुए हनुमान ने स्वयं को ब्रह्मास्त्र  के बन्धन में बंधने दिया। उन्होंने विचार किया कि इस अवसर का लाभ उठाकर वो लंका के विख्यात रावण से मिल भी लेंगे और उसकी शक्ति का अनुमान भी लगा लेंगे। इन्हीं सब बातों को सोचकर हनुमान जी ने स्वयं को रावण के समक्ष बंदी बनकर उपस्थित होने दिया। जब उन्हें  रावण के समक्ष लाया गया तो उन्होंने रावण को प्रभु श्रीराम का चेतावनी भरा सन्देश सुनाया और साथ ही यह  भी कहा कि यदि रावण माता सीता को आदर-पूर्वक प्रभु श्रीराम को लौटा देगा तो प्रभु उसे क्षमा कर देंगे।
क्रोध मे आकर रावण ने हनुमान जी को मृत्यु दंड देने का आदेश दिया; मगर रावण के छोटे भाई विभीषण ने ये कहकर बीच-बचाव किया कि एक दूत को मारना आचार संहिता व कूट नीति के विरुद्ध है। रावण ने कहा कि वानर को अपनी पूँछ बहुत प्रिय होती है। अतः उसने हनुमान जी की पूँछ में आग लगाने का आदेश दे दिया। रावण के सैनिक जब हनुमान जी की  पूँछ में कपड़ा लपेट रहे थे तभी हनुमान जी ने अपनी पूँछ को बढ़ाना प्रारम्भ कर दिया और सैनिकों को कुछ समय तक परेशान करने के पश्चात पूँछ में आग लगाने का अवसर दे दिया। पूँछ  में आग लगते ही हनुमान ने बन्धन मुक्त होकर  लँका को जलाना शुरु कर दिया और अंत में  पूँछ में लगी आग को समुद्र में जाकर बुझाया और प्रभु श्री राम के पास लौटकर उन्होंने सारा वृतान्त सुनाया। 
Hanuman Ji utilized the powers granted to him by the deities to enlarge or shrink his body at will. He acquired shape and size much larger than the path of rotation of Sun to seek knowledge from him as a Guru. As a matter of fact, he possessed all these powers, since his birth, when he jumped into the sky to capture Sun considering to be a ripe mango fruit. He entered the mouth of Sursa and came out diminishing himself to the size of an insect. He turned his body microscopically small to enter Lanka before killing Lankini, the she-demon guarding the gates of Lanka. He contracted himself to the size of a cat, to search the palaces of Ravan. He took the size of a mountain to defeat the Mayavi-illusionary powers, effects of demons. He resented himself as a timid Vanar before Maa Sita in Ashok Vatika, though blazing with radiance. He achieved this shape-shifting by the powers of two siddhis: Anima and Garima bestowed upon him in his childhood by Sun-Sury Narayan.
When Laxman was severely wounded during the battle against Ravan, by Indr Jeet, Hanuman was sent to fetch the Sanjeevni booty, a powerful life-restoring herb, from Dron Giri-mountain in the Himalayas, to revive him. Ravan realised that if Laxman died, distraught Ram would probably give up and so he dispatched the sorcerer Kal Nemi to intercept Hanuman Ji. Kal Nemi, in the guise of a sage, deceived Hanuman Ji, but Hanuman uncovered his plot with the help of an Apsara, whom he rescued from her accursed state as a crocodile. [Kal Nemi took simultaneous births as Kans and thereafter as Emperor Aurangzeb.]
Ravan, upon learning that Kal Nemi had been slain by Hanuman, summoned Sury Bhagwan to rise before its appointed time because the physician Sushen had said that Laxman would perish if untreated by daybreak. Hanuman Ji realized the danger, however and, becoming many times his normal size, detained the Sun to prevent the break of day. He then resumed his search for the precious herb, but, when he found himself unable to identify-recognize which herb it was, he lifted the entire mountain. 
As he was crossing over Ayodhya, Bharat, Ram's young brother, saw him and assumed that some Rakshas was taking that mountain to attack Ayodhya. Bharat shot Hanuman with an arrow, which was engraved with Ram's name. Hanuman Ji did not stop this arrow as it had Ram's name written on it and it injured his leg. Hanuman  Ji landed and explained to Bharat that he was moving the mountain to save his own brother, Laxman. Bharat, felt very sorry and offered to fire an arrow to Lanka, which Hanuman could ride in order to reach his destination more easily. But Hanuman declined the offer, preferring to fly on his own and he continued his journey with his injured leg. Hanuman Ji was nick named Langda Veer (-लँगड़ा योद्धा); Langda in Hindi means limping and Veer means brave. 
Hanuman released Sury from his grip and asked for forgiveness, as Sun Bhagwan was his Guru. He reached Lanka before day break and delivered the mountain to Sushen in the battlefield. Sushen identified and administered the herb and Laxman was saved-revived. Ram embraced Hanuman, declaring him as dear to him as his own brother. 
Ravan perceived his defeat and ordered his brother Ahiravan to abduct Ram and Laxman from the battle field to Patal. Ram and Laxman were captured by Ahiravan, who held them captive in their palace in Patal-the netherworld. Ahiravan kept them as offerings to his deity. Searching for them, Hanuman reached Patal, the gates of which are guarded by a young creature called Makar Dhwaj, who was partially a reptile and partially a Vanar.
When Hanuman Ji extinguished his burning tail in the ocean, a drop of his sweat fell into the waters swallowed by a fish who gave birth to Makar Dhwaj.  Makar Dhwaj, perceived Hanuman Ji Maharaj as his father. When Hanuman Ji introduced himself to Makar Dhwaj, the latter asked his blessings.
Upon entering Patal, Hanuman Ji discovered that to kill Ahiravan, he must simultaneously extinguish five lamps burning in different directions. Hanuman assumed the Panch Mukh or five-faced form of Shri Varah facing north, Shri Narasimha facing south, Shri Garud facing west, Shri Haygreev facing the sky and his own facing the east and blew off the lamps. Hanuman Ji then rescued Ram and Laxman. Bhagwan Ram crowned Makar Dhwaj to the throne of Patal. Hanuman then instructed Makar Dhwaj to rule Patal with justice and wisdom.
लँका युद्ध में जब लक्ष्मण जी मूर्छित हो गये तो, वैद्य सुषेण ने संजीवनी बूटी लाने को कहा। हनुमान जी संजीवनी बूटी को पहचान नहीं पाये अतः पूरा द्रोणागिरी पर्वत ही रण-भूमि में उठा लाये जिससे लक्ष्मण जीके प्राणों की रक्षा हो सकी। भावुक होकर श्रीराम ने हनुमान को ह्रदय से लगा लिया और बोले कि हनुमान तुम मुझे भ्राता भरत की भांति ही प्रिय हो।
अहिरावण तंत्र का ज्ञाता और मायावी था। उसने राम और लछमण का सोते समय हरण कर लिया और उन्हें पाताल-लोक में ले गया। उनकी खोज में हनुमान भी पाताल लोक पहुँच गये। मुख्यद्वार पर उन्हें मकरध्वज पहरा देता मिला उसका आधा शरीर मछली का और आधा शरीर वानर का था। लँका  दहन के पश्चात जब हनुमान पूँछ में लगी आग को बुझाने समुद्र में गये तो उनके पसीने की बूँद समुद्र में गिर गई। उस बूँद को एक मछली ने निगल लिया और वो गर्भवती हो गई। जब उस मछली को पकड़कर अहिरावण की रसोई में लाया तो उसके पेट में से जीवित बचे उस विचित्र प्राणी को निकाला गया। अहिरावण ने उसे पाल-पोस कर बड़ा किया और उसे पातालपुरी के द्वार का रक्षक बना दिया।हनुमान इन सभी बातों से अनिभिज्ञ थे। यद्यपि मकरध्वज को पता था कि हनुमान उसके पिता हैं फिर भी वो उन्हें पहचान नहीं पाया क्योंकि उसने पहले कभी उन्हें देखा नहीं था।
जब हनुमान ने अपना परिचय दिया तो वो जान गया कि ये मेरे पिता हैं मगर फिर भी उसने हनुमान के साथ युद्ध करने का निश्चय किया क्योंकि पातालपुरि के द्वार की रक्षा करना उसका प्रथम कर्तव्य था। हनुमान जी ने बड़ी आसानी से उसे अपने आधीन कर लिया और पातालपुरी के मुख्यद्वार पर बाँध दिया।
पातालपुरी में प्रवेश करने के पश्चात हनुमान ने पता लगा लिया कि अहिरावण का वध करने के लिये उन्हे पाँच दीपकों को एक साथ बुझाना पड़ेगा। अतः उन्होंने पन्चमुखी रूप  (-श्री वराह, श्री नरसिम्हा, श्री गरुण, श्री हयग्रिव और स्वयं) ग्रहण किया किया और एक साथ में पाँचों दीपकों को बुझाकर अहिरावण का अन्त कर किया। अहिरावण का वध होने के पश्चात हनुमान ने प्रभु श्रीराम के आदेशानुसार मकरध्वज को पातालपुऱी का नरेश बना दिया।

Ahiravan, brother of Ravan, had taken Bhagwan Ram and Laxman Ji to netherworld-Patal, as captive and the only way to kill him was to extinguish five lamps burning in different directions, all at the same instant. Hanuman Ji assumed His Panch Mukh form and accomplished the task, thus killing the Rakshas and freeing Ram and Laxman.

Bhagwan Ram decided to come back to Ayodhya since the period of 14 years of exile was about to over. Had he been late Bharat Ji would have immolated him self. He returned in the Pushpak Viman along with all warriors, associates and was handed over the reins of empire by Bharat Ji who was anxiously waiting for him to return. Ram Chandr Ji ceremoniously rewarded all his well-wishers, in a grand ceremony in his court. All his friends and allies took turns being honoured at the throne. Hanuman Ji approached without desiring a reward. Seeing Hanuman Ji come up to him, an emotionally overwhelmed Shri Ram embraced him warmly, declaring that he could never adequately honor or repay Hanuman for the help and services he received from the noble Vanar. Maa Sita, however, insisted that Hanuman deserved honor more than anyone else and she gave him a necklace of precious stones adorning her neck.
Ram Sita in Hanuman's heart.

Hanuman Ji immediately took it apart and peered into each pearl-stone. Taken aback, many of those present demanded to know why he was destroying the precious gift. Hanuman Ji answered that he was looking into the jams to make sure whether Bhagwan Ram and Maa Sita were present in them. If they were not, the necklace was of no value to him. Some one commented that Hanuman's, reverence and love for Ram and Sita could not possibly be as deep as he implied. Hanuman Ji immediately tore his chest open and everyone was stunned to see Ram and Sita literally present in his heart.
युद्ध समाप्त होने के साथ ही भगवान् श्री राम का चौद्ह वर्ष का वनवास भी समाप्त हो चला था। उन्हें ज्ञात था कि यदि वो वनवास समाप्त होने के साथ ही वे अयोध्या नहीं पँहुचे तो भरत अपने प्राण त्याग देंगे। साथ ही उनको इस बात का भी आभास हुआ कि उन्हें वहाँ वापस जाने में अंतिम दिन से थोड़ा विलम्ब हो जायेगा। हनुमान जी ने अयोध्या जाकर प्रभु श्री राम के आने की जानकारी दी। 
अयोध्या में राज्याभिषेक होने के बाद प्रभु श्रीराम ने उन सभी को सम्मानित करने का निर्णय लिया, जिन्होंने लँका युद्ध में रावण को पराजित करने में उनकी सहायता की थी। उनकी सभा में एक भव्य समारोह का आयोजन किया गया जिसमें पूरी वानर सेना को उपहार देकर सम्मानित किया गया। हनुमान को भी उपहार लेने के लिये बुलाया गया, हनुमान मंच पर गये मगर उन्हें उपहार की कोई जिज्ञासा नहीं थी। हनुमान को ऊपर आता देखकर भावना से अभिप्लुत श्रीराम ने उन्हें गले लगा लिया और कहा कि हनुमान ने अपनी निश्छल सेवा और पराक्रम से जो योगदान दिया है, उसके बदले में ऐसा कोई उपहार नहीं है जो उनको दिया जा सके। मगर अनुराग स्वरूप माता सीता ने अपना एक मोतियों का हार उन्हें भेंट किया। उपहार लेने के उपरांत हनुमान माला के एक-एक मोती को तोड़कर देखने लगे।  यह देखकर सभा में उपस्थित सदस्यों ने उनसे इसका कारण पूछा तो हनुमान ने कहा कि वो ये देख रहे हैं मोतियों के अन्दर उनके प्रभु श्री राम और माता सीता हैं कि नहीं, क्योंकि यदि वो इनमें नहीं हैं, तो इस हार का उनके लिये कोई मूल्य नहीं है। यह सुनकर कुछ लोगों ने कहा कि हनुमान के मन में प्रभु श्री  राम और माता सीता के लिये उतना प्रेम नहीं है जितना कि उन्हें लगता है। इतना सुनते ही हनुमान ने अपनी छाती चीर के लोगों को दिखाई और सभी ये देखकर स्तब्द्ध रह गये कि वास्त्व में उनके ह्रदय में प्रभु श्री राम और माता सीता की छवि विद्यमान थी।
PRAYERS: The five faces of Hanuman Ji Maharaj depict five forms of prayers: Naman, Smaran, Keertan, Yachna and Arpan. He surrendered-sought asylum-refuse (-Arpan, Samarpan) in his Master Shri Ram. He also begged (-Yachna) Shri Ram to bless him the undivided love.

HANUMAN DHARA TEMPLE: Chitr Koot in Madhy Pradesh is claimed to be the resting place of Shri Hanuman. The Hanuman Dhara Temple is situated on the peak of mountain, where there is natural rock formation image of Shri Hanuman inside the cave and a natural stream of water falling on the tail. It is believed that after the coronation of Bhagwan Shri Ram, Hanuman Ji requested for a permanent place to settle in his Kingdom, where the injury of burns on his tails could be cured. Bhagwan Shri Ram, spurred a stream of water with his arrow through the tip of mountain and asked Sri Hanuman Ji to rest there with water of the stream falling on his tail to cool down burning sensation in his tail. The access to the cave temple is through stairs starting from bottom of the mountain to its top. It takes roughly 30 to 40 minutes to reach the temple.

Panch Mukh Anjney Swami was the main deity of Shri Ragh Vendr Swami. The place where he meditated on this five-faced form of Shri Hanuman is now known as Panch Mukhi, wherein a temple for him has been built. There is also a shrine for Panch Mukh Anjney Swami at Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, India. A 40 feet (12 m) tall monolithic green granite murti-statue of Shri Panch Mukh Hanuman has been installed in Thiruvallur, in Tamil Nadu. This place was known as Rudr Vanam in ancient times when many saints and seers had blessed this place with their presence. 
Hanuman Ji Maharaj is free from the clutches of Shani Dev. Hanuman Ji liberated Shani Dev from the prison of Ravan where he was hanged with his head down wards. Shani Dev blessed Hanuman Ji that who so ever worshiped him would be relieved-rescued, from the bad-ill-painful-malefic effects of Saturn afflicted negatively. 
Shani Dev once climbed on to shoulder of Hanuman Ji, implying that he was coming under the effects of the influence of Shani. Hanuman assumed a large size, and Shani was caught painfully between Hanuman's shoulders and the ceiling of the room they were in. As the pain was unbearable, Shani requested Hanuman to release him, promising that Shani would moderate the malefic effects of his influence on a person praying to Hanuman. Hanuman released Shani thereafter. Hanuman Sahastranam Strotr mentions Shani is one of the names of Hanuman. Hanuman is seen sporting an iron whip akin to Shani. 
शनि की दशा एक बार शुरू हो जाए तो साढ़े सात साल बाद ही पीछा छोड़ती है। लेकिन हनुमान भक्तों को शनि से डरने की तनिक भी जरूरत नहीं। शनि ने हनुमान को भी डराना चाहा लेकिन मुंह की खानी पड़ी।

संध्या समय हनुमान जी महाराज अपने आराध्य श्री राम का स्मरण करने लगा तो उसी समय ग्रहों में पाप ग्रह, मंद गति सूर्य पुत्र शनि देव पधारे। वह अत्यंत कृष्ण वर्ण के भीषणाकार थे। वह अपना सिर प्रायः झुकाये रखते हैं। जिस पर अपनी दृष्टि डालते हैं, वह अवश्य नष्ट हो जाता है। यद्यपि हनुमान ने उन्हें लंका में दशग्रीव के बंधन से मुक्त किया था, तथापि  वे हनुमान जी से विनयपूर्वक किंतु कर्कश स्वर में बोले कि हे हनुमान जी ! मैं आपको सावधान करने आया हूं। त्रेता की बात दूसरी थी, अब कलियुग प्रारंभ हो गया है। भगवान वासुदेव ने जिस क्षण अपनी अवतार लीला का समापन किया, उसी क्षण से पृथ्वी पर कलि का प्रभुत्व हो गया। यह कलियुग है। इस युग में आपका शरीर दुर्बल और मेरा बहुत बलिष्ठ हो गया है।अब आप पर मेरी साढे साती की दशा प्रभावी हो गई है। मैं आपके शरीर पर आ रहा हूँ।

शनिदेव को इस बात का तनिक भी ज्ञान नहीं था कि रघुनाथ के चरणाश्रितों पर काल का प्रभाव नहीं होता।  करुणा निधान जिनके हृदय में एक क्षण को भी आ जाते हैं, काल की कला वहां सर्वथा निष्प्रभावी  हो जाती है। प्रारब्ध के विधान वहाँ प्रभुत्व हीन हो जाते हैं। सर्व समर्थ पर ब्रह्म के सेवकों का नियंत्रण-संचालन-पोषण प्रभु ही करते हैं। उनके सेवकों की ओर दृष्टि उठाने का साहस कोई सुर-असुर करे तो स्वयं अनिष्ट भाजन होता है। शनिदेव के अग्रज यमराज भी प्रभु के भक्त की ओर देखने का साहस नहीं कर पाते।

हनुमान जी ने शनिदेव को समझाने का प्रयत्न किया, आप कहीं अन्यत्र जाएँ। ग्रहों का प्रभाव पृथ्वी के मरणशील प्राणियों पर ही पड़ता है। मुझे अपने आराध्य का स्मरण करने दें। मेरे शरीर में श्री रघुनाथजी के अतिरिक्त दूसरे किसी को स्थान नहीं मिल सकता।

लेकिन शनिदेव को इससे संतोष नहीं मिला। वह बोले, मैं सृष्टिकर्ता के विधान से विवश हूँ। आप पृथ्वी पर रहते हैं। अतः आप मेरे प्रभुत्व क्षेत्र से बाहर नहीं हैं। पूरे साढे बाईस वर्ष व्यतीत होने पर साढ़े सात वर्ष के अन्तर से ढाई वर्ष के लिए मेरा प्रभाव प्राणी पर पड़ता है। किन्तु यह गौण प्रभाव है। आप पर मेरी साढ़े साती आज इसी समय से प्रभावी हो रही हो। मैं आपके शरीर पर आ रहा हूं। इसे आप टाल नहीं सकते। हनुमान जी ने उन्हें बहुत समझाया किन्तु शनि देव नहीं माने। 

शनिदेव हनुमान जी के मस्तक पर आ बैठे तो उनके सिर पर खुजली हुई। इसे मिटाने के लिए हनुमान जी ने उन्हें अपने सर और अन्य ग्रहों के बीच दबाना शुरू कर दिया। शनि देव घबरा गये और माँफी मांगने लगे।पवनकुमार! त्राहि माम ताहि माम! रामदूत !आंजनेयाय नमः! मैं उसको भी पीड़ित नहीं करूँगा जो आपका स्मरण करेगा। मुझे उतर जाने का अवसर दें।
NEGATIVE ENERGY: Hanuman is worshiped to get rid or win over demons (-daety, danav), other divine creations like: Yaksh, Kinnar, Gandhar, Nag-Nagin, evil spirits (-Bhut, Pret, Pishach, Chudael, Betal, Brahm Rakshas, spirits, Dracula, ) and other powerful negative energies: Dakini, Shakini, Kakini, Kamini. 
After the victory of Bhagwan Ram over Ravan, Hanuman Ji went to the Himalay, where he scripted a version of the Ramayan on the Himalayan mountains using his nails, recording every detail of Bhagwan Ram's deeds. Maharishi Valmiki visited him to show him his own version of the Ramayan. He found that Hanuman's version was much more superior and authentic than his version. Valmiki got disappointed. Hanuman enquired Valmiki's the cause of sorrow. Mahrishi said that the version, which he had created so laboriously, was no match for the splendor of Hanuman's and would therefore be ignored. Hanuman Ji discarded his own version, which is called the Hanumad Ramayan. Maharishi Valmiki was so taken aback that he said he would take another birth to sing the glory of Hanuman Ji Maharaj which he had understated in his version.
One tablet from the Hanumad Ramayan floated ashore during the period of Maha Kavi Kali Das, the poet in the court of Raja Veer Vikramadity. It was hung at a public place to be deciphered by scholars. Kali Das deciphered it and recognised that it was from the Hanumad Ramayan recorded by Shri Hanuman in an extinct script and considered himself to be very fortunate to see, at least one Pad-stanza of the text.
After reigning for 10,000 years, the time arrived for Shri Ram to depart to his supreme abode Vaekunth. Many of Ram's entourage, including Sugriv, decided to depart with him. Hanuman Ji, however, requested Ram that he will remain on earth as long as Ram's name was venerated by people. Maa Sita accorded Hanuman that desire and granted that his image would be installed at various public places, so that he could listen to people chanting Ram's name. He is one of the immortals (-Chiranjivi).
प्रभु श्रीराम की रावण के ऊपर विजय प्राप्त करने के पश्चात ईश्वर की आराधना के लिये हनुमान जी हिमालय पर चले गये थे। वहाँ जाकर उन्होंने पर्वत शिलाओं पर अपने नाखून से रामायण की रचना की जिसमें उन्होनें प्रभु श्री राम के कर्मों का उल्लेख किया था। कुछ समयो परांत जब महर्षि वाल्मिकी हनुमानजी को अपने द्वारा रची गई रामायण दिखाने पहुँचे तो उन्होंने हनुमानजी द्वारा रचित रामायण भी देखी। उसे देखकर वाल्मिकी थोड़े निराश हो गये तो हनुमान ने उनसे उनकी निराशा का कारण पूछा तो महर्षि बोले कि उन्होने कठोर परिश्रम के पश्चात जो रामायण रची है वो हनुमान की रचना के समक्ष कुछ भी नहीं है अतः आने वाले समय में उनकी रचना उपेक्षित रह जायेगी। ये सुनकर हनुमान ने रामायण रचित पर्वत शिला को एक कन्धे पर उठाया और दूसरे कन्धे पर महर्षि वाल्मिकी को बिठा कर समुद्र के पास गये और स्वयं द्वारा की गई रचना को राम को समर्पित करते हुए समुद्र में समा दिया। तभी से हनुमान द्वारा रची गई हनुमद रामायण उपलब्ध नहीं है।तदुपरांत महर्षि वाल्मिकी ने कहा कि तुम धन्य हो हनुमान, तुम्हारे जैसा कोई दूसरा नहीं है और साथ ही उन्होंने ये भी कहा कि वो हनुमान की महिमा का गुणगान करने के लिये एक जन्म और लेंगे। इस बात को उन्होने अपनी रचना के अंत मे कहा भी है।
राजा वीर विक्रमादित्य के काल में एक पटलिका हिमालय से किसी प्रकार उनके राज्य में पहुँच गई तो उसको कोई पढ़ नहीं पाया। महाकवि कालीदास ने उस हनुमद रामायण की पटलिका को  पढ़ा तो स्वयं को धन्य पाया क्योकि वो उन पटलिकाओं में से एक थी जिनको स्वयं हनुमान जी ने महऋषि वाल्मिकी  की सन्तुष्टि हेतु स्वयं ही नष्ट कर दिया था। 
Hanuman is the elder brother of Bheem, being son of Pawan-Vayu Dev. During the Pandavs' exile, he appeared disguised as a weak and aged monkey to Bhim in order to subdue his arrogance. Bheem entered a banana groove in search of divine lotus flowers thrown in the river to attract Bheem, where Hanuman Ji was lying with his tail blocking the way. Bheem, unaware of his identity, told him to move it out of the way. Hanuman Ji incognito, refused. Bheem tried to move the tail himself but he failed despite his great strength. Realising that he was not an ordinary monkey, he inquired as to Hanuman's identity, which was revealed. Bheem's request mobilised Hanuman Ji to demonstrate his huge proportions, he had assumed in his crossing of the sea; as he journeyed to Lanka and also said that when the war came, he would be there to protect the Pandavs. This place is located at Sariska National Park in the Alwar District of the State of Rajasthan and named as Pandu Pole (-Temple of Hanuman Ji). Pandu Pole is very famous tourist spot of Alwar.
During Maha Bharat, Arjun entered the battlefield with a flag displaying Hanuman Ji-Kapi Pataka on his chariot. The incident that led to this was an earlier encounter between Hanuman Ji and Arjun, wherein Hanuman Ji appeared as a small talking monkey before Arjun at Rameshwaram, where Ram had built the great bridge to cross over to Lanka to rescue Mata Sita. Upon Arjun's wondering aloud at Ram's taking the help of monkeys rather than building a bridge of arrows, Hanuman Ji challenged him to build a bridge capable of bearing him alone; Arjun, unaware of the Vanar's virtues and true identity, accepted. Hanuman Ji then proceeded to repeatedly destroy the bridges made by Arjun, who decided to take his own life. Bhagwan Shri Krashn smiled and placed his divine discus-Sudarshan Chakr beneath the bridge and this time Hanuman could no longer break it. Bhagwan Vishnu appeared before them both, after originally coming in the form of a tortoise, chiding Arjun for his vanity and Hanuman for making Arjun feel incompetent. As an act of penitence, Hanuman decided to help Arjun by stabilising and strengthen his chariot during the imminent great battle-Maha Bharat. Arjun had to face Bhishm Pitamah who had maintained his chastity through out his life. So, it became essential to ward off the power of Bhishm Pitamah by countering him with Hanuman Ji Maharaj, After, the battle of Kurukshetr was over, Bhagwan Shri Krashn asked Arjun, to step down the chariot before him. As soon as Arjun got down, Shri Krashn followed him and thanked Hanuman Ji for staying with them during the whole fight in the form of a flag on the chariot. Hanuman Ji came in his original form, bowed to Shri Krashn and left the flag, flying away into the sky. As soon as he left the flag, the chariot began to burn and turned into ashes. Arjun was shocked to see this. Bhagwan Shri  Krashn told Arjun, that the only reason that his chariot was still standing was because of the presence of Himself and Hanuman, otherwise, it would have burnt many days ago due to effects of celestial weapons thrown at it, in the war.
Hanuman is one of the four people to have heard the Bhagwad Gita from Krashn and seen his Vishw Roop (-universal) form, the other three being Arjun, Sanjay and Barbreek-son of Ghatotkach (घटोत्कच) and grand son of Bheem.
JAKHU TEMPLE SHIMLA: Hanuman Ji encountered a meditating sage on Jakhu hills on his way to Himalay, which was the legendary abode of Yaksh, Kinners Nag and Asur. As he paused to inquire about the Sanjeevni herb, his sudden landing flattened-compressed the earth and changed the shape of the hill to its present state. A 108-foot (33-meter) statue of Hanuman Ji has been erected at the top of the 8,500-foot (2,591-meter) tall Jakhu Hill, the highest point in Shimla. 
MAHA KAPI: The Great Monkey
The Himalay-the great mountain range in India, has always been known for its fascinating varieties of flora and fauna. Furthermore, the manifold varieties of flora are known not only for their riches for medicinal purposes, but also for their flavor. A river flowed through this beautiful place. It had some great fruit trees, which supported the monkeys of that region through out the year. Their exceedingly sweet flavor, lovely hue and fragrance, could attract any one. Their taste was as good honey. No man had ever seen or noticed them before. One of such trees had grown at the bank of the serpentine river. Soon it turned into the abode of several monkeys. Mahatma Buddh-Bodhitsv, in one of his earlier incarnation was born as the king of those monkeys. He was much larger in size than his followers and was more compassionate and virtuous than others.
He noticed that a branch of the tree had grown just over the stream. He became cautious as its fruits might drop in the stream. Its fruits could soon reach man's world, bringing them to their abode. He instructed the monkeys not to let any fruit grow on that branch. Somehow, one fruit was left out. That fruit in course of time ripened and developed its fine colour, taste, smell and softness and became loose in its stalk. Ultimately, it dropped into the stream. Being carried down by the stream it was stuck in the net-work of a fence of a king, who was having fun with his women there. The delightful and delicious aroma of the fruit soon spread all over the place. 
Its odour was quite different from the women’s perfumes and other cosmetics, decorative flowers and garlands or from the intoxicating drinks. It, however, charmed every visitor there. Bewitched with the smell of the fruits the women enjoyed its prolonged inhalations with half-shut eyes. The king, too, was charmed. So, they rolled their eyes all around to look for the source of the fragrance and finally detected it stuck in a net. The fruit was unique for its color and odor; size and shape; and texture that no man had ever seen or heard before. The king tasted it found it, un parallel. It was unique, nourishing, tasty and energetic. He ordered his men to locate the tree in and around the river-bank, which bore the fruit. The tree laden with such luscious and delicious fruits was discovered soon. When they saw the monkeys enjoying those fruits, which their king wanted to have so eagerly, they attacked the monkeys mercilessly with volleys of arrows.
To protect him self from the royal soldiers Maha Kapi jumped to a mountain peak. Other monkeys could not copy him. There, in order to save his friends, he seized a strong rooted tall cane with his legs and bending it towards the tree, jumped back and caught hold of the branch of the tree. He then called upon the other monkeys to use him as a bridge to jump upon the mountain peak, to safety. Taking advantage of the situation all the monkeys jumped on the mountain and darted away quickly. He was terribly bruised and injured by being trampled by his mates when acting as a bridge for them. Soon he swooned. The king watched the flight of the monkeys and also the plight of the monkey king. He was greatly moved by the exemplification of such insight; courage, valour and sacrifice, which an animal had just displayed to save the lives of his subjects.

Maha Kapi soon regained consciousness. The king asked him to explain as to why did he endangered his life to save his subjects, who were rather meant to serve or sacrifice. Like a guru, Maha Kapi described to the king that a king has to be the protector-representing Bhagwan Vishnu and not the master. He is to serve his subjects. I just performed my duty. Its over now. He prayed to the Almighty, paid his obeisances, thanked for the opportunity to serve his subjects and left for heavenly abode, in peace-tranquillity and solace.
