Hanuman’s life mirrors the path to success. It carries the ultimate recipe of all the right ingredients to cook up a life we sought out in our own nutshell of life.

As a child, He showcased a treasure trove of energy when he skied up to sun to swallow its substance. Such was his forte. Hanuman had all the powers but he was not aware of his merits, until he met with Rama. Lord Rama, was needed to remind him of his strength.

When lord Rama bestowed the job of searching Sita, Hanuman sprung to action with great alacrity. It was a herculean task vs. Supreme Confidence. He said to himself,

Yatha Raghava nirmukhta: Sarah:
SwasanaVikramaha: gachet: thathvat Gamishyami
Lankaam ravana Palitham

(Just like how an arrow from Rama hits the bulls eye and remains unscathed, I’m going to set out to Lanka and fulfill the job)

It was not the awareness of his powers, it was the confidence that it was Rama-Karyam, and his supreme confidence in Rama, that propelled him to act.

And he had done it. He crossed his hurdles. He mastered communicating with Sitamma, who looked at him with disbelief initially, he communicated with Ravana and acquainted him with his formidable foe, much to Ravana’s dismay. There were moments of self-doubt, failure and fear of defeat. Yet Hanuman never took a back step. With single minded devotion and true spirit of confidence, Hanuman achieved his goal. He fulfilled his duty, no matter the hurdles, no matter the chaos, with the belief instilled by Rama.

Aren’t we blessed lot to have, Hanuman as our mentor?

There is supreme strength in us, as we are the only ones of God’s creation, who can think. Period. Let Rama unearth it and give the direction. Let him channelize our energies. Thus you gain the humility like Hanuman.

Bring in the trials and tribulations of life, we lose the ground in the middle and lose our self in this maze of life.

In times like that, we would need the duo Rama-Hanuman to help us stay afloat. Practice, what they preached in life. Surrender yourself to an Acharya, in this case make Hanuman, your Acharya.

If you are a devotee to Lord Hanuman, then don’t be one for the name of it, but be The One, in essence of it, imbibe His values, His beliefs, His strategies, in your life and then see the magic.
