Rama’s celestial vanara companion, Hanuman, is a Hindu god. Hanuman is one of the major heroes in the Hindu epic Ramayana. He is a fervent Rama devotee and a Chiranjeevi member. Hanuman is also the son of Vayu, the wind god who is said to have played an important role in Hanuman’s birth. Hanuman appears in a variety of texts, including the Mahabharata and the Puranas.

There is a minimal indication of religious love for Hanuman in these texts, as well as most archaeological sites. According to Philip Lutgendorf, an American Indologist, the theological significance of Hanuman and religious attachment to him emerged about 1,000 years after the composition of the Ramayana, in the 2nd millennium CE, with the arrival of Islamic rule in the Indian subcontinent. Hanuman’s unique skills, according to Lutgendorf, appear to be derived in part from his windy forebears, signifying Vayu’s role in both the body and the universe. Hanuman has been depicted as a symbol of nationalism and resistance to persecution by saints affiliated with the Bhakti movement, such as Samarth Ramdas. According to the Vaishnava guru Madhva, Vayu accompanies Vishnu on earth and aids him in preserving dharma. In the contemporary era, Hanuman’s iconography and temples have grown in popularity. He is regarded as the perfect blend of “strength, heroic initiative, and powerful excellence” and “loving, passionate devotion to his personal deity Rama” as Shakti and Bhakti. In later literature, he is frequently depicted as the patron deity of martial arts like wrestling and acrobatics, as well as pleasures such as meditation and diligent inquiry. He embodies the human excellences of inner self-control, faith, and commitment to a purpose behind the initial impressions of a person who looks to be an Ape-Man Vanara. Hanuman is revered as model celibacy and bachelor.


The first mention of a celestial monkey is in Rigveda’s hymn 10.86, which dates between 1500 and 1200 BCE and is thought to be the proto-Hanuman by some researchers. The twenty-three verses of the hymn describe a metaphorical and riddle-filled tale. It is told as a dialogue between various characters, including the god Indra, his wife Indrani, and an energetic monkey named Vrisakapi and his wife, Kapi. Indrani bemoans the fact that a portion of the soma offerings for Indra has gone to the active and powerful monkey and that the people have forgotten about Indra. Indra, the gods’ king, responds by telling his wife that the living creature (monkey) who bothers her should be treated as a friend and that they should make an effort to coexist together. The song ends with everyone agreeing to meet at Indra’s house to enjoy the presents’ wealth.

According to orientalist F. E. Pargiter (1852″1927), Hanuman was a proto-Dravidian deity. According to this theory, the term “Hanuman” is derived from the Tamil word for male monkey (ana-mandi), which was abbreviated to “Anumant” and is still in use today. According to this hypothesis, “Anumant” became “Hanuman” because the ancient Aryans appropriated the concept of an earlier Dravidian monkey deity and Sanskritized it.
