Sai Baba On Hanuman

" Once Lord Rama asked Hanuman, "How do you contemplate on Me?" "At the physical level, You are my Master and I am Your servant. At the mental level, I am a spark of thy Divine Self. At the Atmic level, You and I are one," said Hanuman.

Pleased with Hanuman’s reply, Lord Rama presented him with a pearl necklace, which was given to Mother Sita by her father, King Janaka, at the time of her marriage. Hanuman held this very valuable necklace in his hand, began to remove all the pearls one by one from the necklace, and kept it near his ear for some time and then after biting each one of them, threw them away. Sita was surprised to see Hanuman behaving thus. She thought that Hanuman had not given up his monkey traits. Rama knew the intention behind this act of Hanuman. However, in order to make Sita understand this, He asked, "Hanuman, why are you biting and throwing away such precious pearls?" Hanuman replied, "O Lord, I am examining whether I could listen to Your name in the pearls. Since I could not hear, I am throwing away. The pearl is no better than a stone if there is no Rama Nama in it. I want only You." Listening to this statement of Hanuman, Rama offered Himself by embracing Hanuman. The inner meaning of this is Rama is where Hanuman is and vice-versa. Hanuman is one who realized the unity of the individual and God. Consequently, Hanuman was always in a state of bliss.

Hanuman is given various appellations such as Santhudu, Gunavanthudu, Balavantadu (one of peace, virtues and strength). He derived his strength from the Divine name of Lord Rama. Many people confine the Divine Name only to the lips but Hanuman chanted the name of Rama from the depth of his heart.

Hanuman, after the completion of his mission in Lanka, went to Sita to receive her blessings before returning to Rama. At that time, Mother Sita blessed Hanuman in this manner: "Hanuman! You are full of prowess, intelligence and fortitude. May you never grow old." This did not give joy to Hanuman. Noticing his sense of disappointment, Sita blessed him again: "Live as an immortal." Even this did not please Hanuman. Sita then blessed him again: "Hanuman! You are full of virtues! May the dwellers in the three worlds extol your qualities." Hanuman felt embarrassed and bent his head as if he was ashamed to hear her praise him. Observing Hanuman's reactions, Sita finally blessed him thus: "May Shri Rama always love you!" The moment he heard these words, Hanuman was in rapture. "This was all that I wanted," he declared. "I must be worthy of Rama's love. A life without Rama's love is an utter waste. It is a living death. The only thing I desire is Rama's love."

"Hanuman was proficient in music. There was none that could excel him in singing. Even Nârada and Tumbura could not prevail against him. Such a great singer continued always to chant the name of Rama."

"Rama (the representative jivi) had to undergo many spiritual austerities to regain the Supreme Enlightenment. He reached, according to the story, the Rsyamuka peak, the abode of total detachment. There he secured two allies, Sugriva (Discrimination) and Hanuman (Courage)."
Hanuman's Supreme Devotion. 

More by Sai Baba On Hanuman:

What happened to Sumitra's share of pudding that was
carried away by the eagle? It was left on a mountain,
which Anjani Devi consumed. As a result, Hanuman was
born to her. This is the reason for the intimate
relationship that existed between Hanuman and the four
brothers, Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Satrughna. Very
few are aware of it.

When Sita and Rama returned to Ayodhya, people's joy
knew no bounds. At the time of His coronation, Rama
distributed gifts to all those who had helped Him in
the war, except to Hanuman. On being questioned by
Sita, Rama said that Hanuman did not care for any gift
and that He had no worthy gift to be given to Hanuman.
Then Sita took out her pearl necklace and presented it
to Hanuman. He plucked each pearl, put it between his
teeth, placed it near his ear and with a face
indicating disappointment threw it away in disgust.
Surprised at this behavior of Hanuman, Sita said,
"Hanuman, this is a precious pearl necklace given to
me by my father, but you are throwing away the pearls
without realizing their value. You don't seem to have
given up your monkey tricks." Then Hanuman replied, "O
mother, I examined each pearl in order to see whether
it had the sacred name of Rama in it. I could not find
it in any pearl. Without the name of Rama, they are
but stones and pebbles. So, I cast them on the ground.
Even the hair of mine is filled with the name of
Rama." Saying so, he plucked out a hair from his hand
and put it near Sita's ear. She could hear Rama's name
emanating from it. Then she started praising Hanuman
thus: "You are the crest jewel among the monkeys who
fulfilled Rama's mission. You are the great hero who
found the whereabouts of Sita and destroyed the city
of Lanka." (Telugu Poem) It can be said that but for
Hanuman, Ramayana would not have existed. He is the
embodiment of devotion and surrender. Hanuman is
present wherever Rama's name is chanted. Rama's name
and form are not different. Hanuman experienced this
unity. That is the principle of non-dualism. You call
yourselves devotees of Rama and go through the sacred
text of Ramayana repeatedly, but is there any
transformation in your mind? Not at all. This is not
true or real devotion, but only a show of devotion.
Rama does not approve of pomp and show. He gives
importance only to practice. Bliss can be attained
only through practice. Try to understand the principle
of Rama correctly.

More by Sai Baba On Hanuman:

For all the mighty deeds done by Hanuman and great
help rendered by him, Rama asked him: "Hanuman! What
reward can I give you? Apart from expressing my
gratitude to you I cannot give you any fitting
recompense. The only way I can show my gratitude to
you is that whenever you think of me at any time in
your life, I shall appear before you." Rama was
showing his gratitude to Hanuman in this manner.

This indicates that the primary duty of man is to be
grateful all his life to the person who has done him a
good turn.

Man has to realize his divinity and look at all Nature
from the Divine point of view. Instead man looks at
everything only from the mundane point of view. The
body is indeed perishable. But it is also the means
for realizing the imperishable Truth.

This means, all speech should be about the Divine. All
actions should be godly. Every thought should be about

That is the appeal which Thyagaraja made to his mind:
"Oh mind, think always about Sri Rama." (Bhagavan sang
in His own mellifluous voice Thyagaraja's song in
which he said: "Oh Kausalya, what penance did you
perform to enjoy the privilege of calling Sri Rama
affectionately as a mother and showering your kisses
on the divinely beautiful child Rama. What penance did
Dasaratha perform to call Sri Rama to come to him?")
Thus Thyagaraja was chanting Rama's name all the time
and singing his glories. This is an example to the
