Hanuman is a famous character from the Ramayana, appearing in the Mahabharata as well, and he is the premier Monkey God of Hindu culture. As a god, he has control over wind, allowing him to fly at high speeds, and he is also the god of the mind and learning — not to mention his control over a vast monkey army.
As a young monkey, Hanuman was hungry, and he looked up at the sky, mistaking the sun for a piece of fruit. He made a glorious effort to capture the sun to eat it, but the god of thunder Indra attacked Hanuman with a lightning bolt. Hanuman’s father Vayu, the god of wind, stopped the wind’s blowing in protest of his son being attacked. To get the winds moving once more, the gods resurrected Hanuman, giving him ever greater powers.
But Hanuman was still a young child, and he played the trickster role among the holy men of India. As a punishment, he was made ignorant of his own magnificent powers. It took Hanuman a long path of self discovery to regain this knowledge, leading to a more humble deity.
In the Ramayana, Vishnu’s avatar Rama is accompanied by Hanuman on many adventures. These stories make up most people’s first encounter with the monkey god. Within the tales of the Ramayana, Hanuman proves to be a valiant ally and fighter for good.
