When I was traveling in India a few decades ago, I was told the story of Lord Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god.
He had been born as a monkey to serve Lord Ram and he spent all his hours in the service of Rama. Hanuman had incredible powers.
He could cross the ocean simply by uttering the words “Ram-Nam” and he conquered all difficulties that tried to stop him because of his courage, patience and undaunted spirit. He was never selfish; all his actions were offerings in service to Lord Rama.
He became the supreme head of Pundits, and the commander of heroes and warriors.
Where Hanuman is, there is Sri Rama and wherever Sri Rama is praised and his deeds recited, there Hanuman is.
Glory to Hanuman, the blessed devotee of Lord Rama. May India have such heroes for ever more!
