Hanuman Jayanti Significance and Celebration

Hanuman Jayanti marks the birth anniversary of Lord Hanuman, who was the most trusted aid of Lord Rama. His contributions are crucial in the mythical stories of Ramayana, and his zealous strength and undying love and loyalty for Ram has been one of the key reasons that Hanuman is revered by Hindus across the world. There is no denying the fact that Lord Hanuman played a crucial role in the battle of Lanka and helped Lord Ram in bringing Goddess Sita to safety. This day is therefore observed as a day of dedicated celebration for all that Lord Hanuman has done.

Hanuman Jayanti celebrations are usually observed by visiting temples and offering grand prayers to Lord Hanuman. However, considering the current spread of COVID-19, the safest and smartest way to celebrate this festival has to be while staying indoors. People often make delicious sweets and delicacies that can be offered to Lord Hanuman to mark this day. In fact, in South India, the tradition of providing a garland made of vadas (vada mala), is a tradition that is continued even today and is said to fulfil all our wishes. We hope that you observe a safe and secure Hanuman Jayanti this year.
