Legends


Legends have it that on this day Hanuman was granted the boon of eternal life or immortality. However, the boon was, in its full effect, a combination of many boons. There are many Vedic references which state that when Hanuman was a child, he thought of the sun to be a fruit. As he was very hungry at that point of time, he went for the sun thinking of it as a fruit to satisfy his hunger. On his way he met Rahu, a Vedic planet who is believed to bring about eclipses. Both of them clashed but eventually, Hanuman thrashed Rahu According to Hindu religion, Rahu is the severed head of a demon which swallows sun and, thus, causes eclipses. The time of day under the influence of Rahu is considered inauspicious. He is lord of the three lunar mansions.and tossed him away and proceeded to put the sun in his mouth. After his defeat, Rahu approached Indra, king of the God, and complained about Hanuman as to how he obstructed him from getting to the sun and preventing the scheduled solar eclipse. Infuriated by Hanuman’s mischief, Indra attacked him with Vajra, which struck his jaw, thus, leaving a permanent mark on his chin. He fell back down to the earth and became unconscious. Upset over Indra’s actions, Hanuman’s father figure Vayu withdrew all the air from the world and went into seclusion. As living beings started to die due to deprivation of air, Indra drew back the effect of his Vajra. Many gods gathered together and tried to please Vayu in order to bring back the balance of the world. Later, Hanuman gained consciousness and woke up. Indra granted Hanuman the boon that his mighty weapon Vajra It is a Sanskrit word which means thunderbolt as well as diamond. Hence, it is the name given to a ritual weapon which is both indestructible and strong like a diamond, and irresistible like a thunderboltwill never have any effect on Hanuman in the future.

came there as well and granted him the boon that he will not be harmed with any weapon at all and will remain indestructible to anything. Surya bestowed upon him the boon that Hanuman would have the knowledge of the scriptures like no other, and also gifted him one percent of his radiance. Vayu blessed him with the boon that Hanuman shall live as long as there will be air in the world. Eventually, Vayu’s anger was mollified and he released the air back to the earth, thus, stabilizing its order again.
