Hanuman Jayanti

Hanuman Jayanti, April 6, is celebrated by Hindus in Gujarat and around the world as a way to commemorate the birth of Hanuman. Hanuman is the symbol of strength and energy, and is worshipped for his intense devotion to the god Rama and as a deity with magical powers and the strength to overcome evil spirits. He is said to have the ability to transform himself into anything at will, move mountains, and dart through the air. His devotees will flock to temples on this day to worship him and apply sindhur (a red colored powder) to their foreheads from Hanuman’s body. Pray that Hindus who follow Hanuman will see the unmatched, unmatchable power of the Most High and will cry out like the psalmist, “O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O Lord, with your faithfulness all around you?” Psalm 89:8
