TALES OF HANUMAN
Immortal and invincible, the figure of Hanuman towers in Indian mythology as a symbol of courage, devotion and love. The three titles in this Amar Chitra Katha tell the adventures of this rniqhty deity.
It tells of the time he leaped across 800 miles of ocean to console a distraught Sita sitting forlorn in Ravana's garden.
It tells the story of his tremendous flight from Lanka to the Himalayas to bring the Vishalya Karani herb that would save Lakshmana's life after he was fatally wounded in the battlefield.
And it also tells of the monkey trick he played on his half-brother, Bheema, many centuries later.
Hanuman stands for extraordinary physical strength, courage and humility. Above all, he is known for his devotion to Rama. So, it was little wonder that Rama entrusted Hanuman with the task of carrying his message to Sita in Lanka. Again, it was Hanuman who brought him the life-giving Sanjeevani to revive his beloved brother Lakshmana who had been grievously injured on the battlefield. Even today, Hanuman is regarded as the epitome of unfaltering devotion and unparalleled strength.
HANUMAN TO THE RESCUE
Rama was frantic. His beloved brother lay dying and the only cure was tucked away on a forested mountainside far, far to the north. Big-hearted Hanuman could not bear to see their pain. He swelled into a giant; he flew; he battled deadly crocodiles and murderous ogres; he pitted his wits against powerful gods - all to deliver the precious medicinal plant, Sanjeevani, before it was too late. He brought the entire mountain to rest at Rama's feet!
BHEEMA AND HANUMAN
Both are known for their extraordinary strength and valour. Both are the sons of Vayu, the wind god. Hanuman lived in the Tretayug serving Sri Rama while Bheema, a contemporary of Krishna, lived in the Dwaparyug. The Mahabharata narrates the story of an encounter between the two mighty brothers.
