hanuman jayantiWhen is Hanuman Jayanti in 2009? 2009 Hanuman Jayanthi is on 9th April.

When is Hanuman Jayanthi in 2010? 2010 Hanuman Jayanti is on 30th March.

The birthday of Hanuman falls on “Chaitra Shukla Purnima”(full moon day in the months of March- April). The monkey-god is worshipped all over India with great reverence. He is a brahmachari (celibate).

Hanuman was a staunch devotee of Lord Rama and is worshipped for his total devotion to the Lord. He is the symbol of devotion and strength. He has so much power that he can wield rocks, travel through air, Move Mountains, and seize clouds. He is worshipped as a deity who can ward off evil spirits and is considered to possess magical powers.

Legend of Hanuman Jayanti
Sita had applied sindhoor on her forehead and Hanuman enquired about its significance. He was told by Sita that this ensured long life for her husband. Hanuman on hearing this applied sindhoor all over his body praying for the immortality of his Lord.

Celebration of Hanuman Jayanti
Hanuman is worshipped on this auspicious day and people fast. People read the Hanuman Chalisa and recite the name of Lord Rama. This pleases Hanuman and he blesses the devotee with success in all his or her efforts. From early morning hours people visit the Hanuman temple. Spiritual discourses are organized in the early hours in the temple premises. At home idols and pictures of Hanuman are cleaned up in the early hours of morning.

Ritual of Hanuman Jayanti
People visit the Hanuman temple and apply the sindhoor taken from the idol of Hanuman on their forehead. It is supposed to bring good luck to them. Prasad (religious food offering) is distributed among the people. Pooja is performed and abhisheka (religious offering consisting of coconut and flowers) is done. Preparations begin very early in the morning. The pictures and idols of Hanuman are smeared with sindhoor. Bananas and sweets are offered. Prayers are held and aarti is performed. Most of the devotees keep fast, especially those who are wrestlers and body builders. Although generally fast is done by Hindu women in most festivals, in this case men mostly go on fast.

Hanuman represents strength and courage. Men worship him to imbibe his courageous qualities. He was a great devotee of Lord Rama.

    hanuman is a god of divotion, so we must learn the lesson of divotion in our work from LORD HANUMAN. JAY SHRI RAM.

  7. sanjay kshirsagar on

    Hanuman is all powerful, courageous, removes all problems and sorrows. Chanting his name is enough to fill one with courage and energy.

    Before yourself place Hanuman Yantra in some plate. On it smear vermilion. Next offer a mixture of jaggery, ghee and chapati. Thereafter chant 11 rounds of the following Mantra with Red Coral rosary.

    Om Namo Hanumantaay Aaveshay Aaveshay Swaahaa.

    After completion of the Mantra recital go to sleep there itself. This Sadhana should be tried only at night and must be continued for 11 days. Let the sweet offered remain at its place. The next day put it in some utensil and offer fresh sweets.

    The eleventh night Lord Hanuman without fail manifests before the Sadhak and provides solutions to the problems of the Sadhak or blesses him with desired success.

    After completion of Sadhana give away the sweet collected on all eleven days to some poor person or go and bury it in the earth in South direction from your home. Sadhaks have managed to ward off acute problems, ailments and even possible incarceration through this Sadhana. Without doubt this ritual is unfailing and unique.

    jai shriram
    jai hanuman

    The Hanuman chalisa is for everyone, and it makes miracles happen. If you want to fast on Tuesdays and/or Saturdays it’s fine… Hanuman Jayanti fasting can be done, and usually it’s broken with prasad, then a meal is had after sunset.

    It’s just the custom that mainly brahmcharya boys, body builders, wrestlers, etc. fast on this day as Bhakt Hanuman represents those things a lot.

    I’m also debating whether to observe it on the 29th or 30th as I’m in the U.S. and purnima is the 29th… Maybe I will just fast on both days.

    Just my humble 2 cents.. hope it helps.

    Bajrang Bali Kee Jai!


  17. To Pallavip
    As long as you are clean. Then shower, washing your hair and wearing clean cloths. I don’t see a reason why you can’t pray to Shree Hanuman – as a daughter to him. This is my opion, but reliogus Pundits may have a different view. Jai Shree Ram

  18. Everybody can do the fasting…and go for the pooja..hanuman is a god of all …and today is hanuman jayathi

  26. Jeevan Chauhan on

    Jai Hanuman Ji Ki Jai Ho.

    Can anyone tell that it is said by most of the people that to keep fast of hanuman ji by a boy does not let him get marry.

    I m confused that i m to get marry now & i keep fast on every tuesday is it not good before marriage to keep fast.


    Jeevan Chauhan

    • Hanuman ji himself is the greatest devotee of Shri Ram , who is married with 2 lovely boys . As says Hanuman Chalisa” Asth Siddhi Nav Nidhi Ke Data, As bas deen Janaki Mata” he wud not come in the way of marriage , he is far too above all these mortal thnkings. So Relax , Marriage is Also a Tapovan, where u practice perseverance, tolerance and love for ur yonger ones and take care of ur elder ones before u take care of ur needs .

      Jai Shree Ram !

  27. Its my personal, beleve that workshiping hanumanji regularly will definatly always lead you to prosperity, hardtime becomes easy and you always move positivly . Its work if you have a strong beleive.

  28. Hanuman is my fav god. I was scared of ghost and darkenss earlier but after chanting hanuman chalisa i never felt like before . Telling truly chanting hauman chalisa brings lots of happiness and success in life.

    Anjanai putraya vidmahe vaayuputraya dheemahi Tanho Hanuman Prajitayat..
    Jai Bajranh Bali Ki jai
