Hanuman Jayanti 2024: Rituals and Observances

On Hanuman Jayanti, devotees are encouraged to engage in several rituals to honor the deity’s strength, devotion, and valor. Here are some key activities to consider:

  1. Chanting the Hanuman Chalisa: Early morning prayers start with the recitation of the Hanuman Chalisa, a 40-verse hymn in praise of Hanuman, which invokes his divine intervention and blessings. Chanting this powerful hymn can help dispel fears and instill courage and determination in one’s heart.
  2. Visiting Hanuman Temples: Make a trip to a local Hanuman temple to participate in special pujas and offerings. The Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple and other renowned Hanuman temples across India host special events and spiritual discourses that draw thousands of devotees.
  3. Observing a Fast: Many devotees observe a day-long fast in honor of Hanuman. It is believed that fasting on this day and praying to Him can enhance one’s physical and mental strength, akin to that of Hanuman himself.
  4. Offering Sindoor and Oil: Offer sindoor (vermilion) and oil to Hanuman statues at temples, as these are considered auspicious and believed to grant the blessings of health and longevity.

Astrological Significance

With Mars entering Pisces and joining Rahu, the celestial environment is charged with energy that encourages bold actions and decisions. Reflect on how you can channel this assertive energy into positive endeavors in your life. Given the potent energy of Mars combined with Rahu, which can lead to impulsiveness, devote this day to mindfulness practices and meditation. This helps in maintaining composure and utilizing the day’s energetic influences wisely. Be mindful of your words & actions. Take a deep breath before reacting in anger.
