Lord Hanuman, is a name that is synonymous with devotion and innocence in the Hindu culture.
Being the son of Kesari and Anjana, he was a very mischievous child blessed with many
celestial powers. His life took a completely different turn when he met the lord of lords, Prabhu
Shri Ram. There are countless stories in Ramayana that depict the surrender and selfless
devotion of Lord Hanuman towards Shri Ram. In his devotion, he has become a no-self, so
much that even his heartbeat chants the name of Shri Ram.
As per a story in Ramayana, once Hanuman was asked to prove that Shri Ram really resided in
his heart. He simply tore his chest and there one could see the divine presence of Shri Ram in
his heart. This statue has been crafted following the same lines, illustrating Lord Hanuman as
the highest of all devotees. Lost in the quiet and continuous remembrance of his lord, Hanuman
is sitting with his legs crossed and right hand raised in the blessing posture. His left hand is
holding a Mala ( a garland of beads) used to assist the chanting. Wearing a small dhoti and
minimal jewellery, his aura shows every sign of purity and chastity.
However, the most remarkable aspect of the statue remains the presence of Prabhu Ram in the
very heart of lord Hanuman, illustrated by the imagery on his chest. As if, lord Ram himself is
present through Hanuman. That's the highest state of devotion, where there remains no
separation between the lord and the devotee, all the dualities cease, and just oneness prevails.
This beautiful work of art conveys the very essence of lord Hanuman, something for which he is
revered by all.
