Hanuman Jayanti commemorates the birth of Hanuman, the monkey-god, known largely for his unflinching service and ardent loyalty to Lord Rama, a divine incarnation in the ancient Indian epic, the Ramayana. Hanuman is venerated particularly in north India as the embodiment of devotion, strength, and energy. He is the quintessential karma yogi, abiding in unerring selfless service to God. The son of the wind god, Vayu, Hanuman also represents prana the life force energy carried in the breath that aids yogis in attaining liberation.
It has also become our tradition at Mount Madonna Center to celebrate Hanuman Jayanti in conjunction with honoring the birthday of our beloved Guru, Sri Baba Hari Dass. Babaji’s inspiration, love, and support has brought blessings and grace into the lives of so many. Please join us for this most auspicious celebration to express our deepest gratitude, respect, and heartfelt love on this special 88th birthday of Babaji.
