Lord Hanuman is a great devotee of Lord Rama and an influential character in the Ramayana.


Lord Hanuman is a great devotee of Lord Rama and an influential character in the Ramayana. He is a manifestation of Lord Shiva and had dedicated his life to the restoration of Dharma on Earth. In Ramayana His main purpose is to help Lord Rama defeat Ravana and rescue Maa Sita. Known for his bravery and strength, Hanuman ji overcame all his enemies.
One story that is famous in the Ramayana is the ‘burning of Lanka by Hanuman’s tail’. After Maa Sita was abducted by Ravana, Lord Rama sent Hanuman to look for her. On his way Hanuman met Sampati, the brother of Jatayu who was murdered by Ravana. Sampati told him that Maa Sita was held captive at Ashokvatika in Lanka.
Hanuman Ji went to meet Maa Sita and in anger, uprooted many trees in Ashokvatika. Then Hanuman Ji made a seat from his long tail and sat on it, and requested Ravana to free Sita. This enraged Ravana who was angered by Hanuman’s behavior. Ravana ordered his slaves to set fire to Hanuman’s tail. When they did that, Hanuman’s tail became longer and longer. Everyone was surprised by this and Hanuman flew away from them. With his tail on fire , he burnt the whole of Lanka. Sita Ji came to know about this and prayed to Lord Agni. Lord Agni made sure that even if Hanuman’s tail was burning, he wouldn’t feel any pain. Worrying that the fire would harm Sita, Hanuman Ji visited Ashokvatika and saw that she was unharmed. Then he went back to Lord Rama, who then was convinced that he would wage war on Lanka to free Sita. ! 🔥🐒🔥

Whenever you should doubt your self worth, remember the lotus flower. Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.

Whenever you should doubt your self worth, remember the lotus flower. Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty. 🐍👁🐍Namaste Beautiful Souls. It's time for Weekend Vibes. 💀🔱💀 Yes, Don't let any kind of negativity affect you. It can be emotionally draining just being around negative people, and you must be careful because their attitudes are contagious. Negativity perpetuates itself, breeds dissatisfaction and clutters the mind. And when the mind is cluttered with negativity, happiness is much harder to come by. Let go off all sorts of negativity. People will try to bring you down. But dont take other people’s behaviour personally. Most negative people behave negatively not just to you, but to everyone they interact with. What they say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own attitude. Remember, what others say or do are based entirely on their own self-reflection. Start spending time with people who bring the best in you. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Rise and shine. Be the positivity yourself. Change your perspective. The one thing nobody can take away from you is the way you choose to respond to what others say and do. The problem isn’t the events that are negative. The problem is the way you react to those events. Complaining, blaming and criticizing aren’t going to change the situation. It is not always easy to find happiness in ourselves, but it is always impossible to find it elsewhere. Regardless of the situation you face, your attitude is your choice. Remember, you can’t have a positive life with a negative attitude. When negativity controls your thoughts, it limits your behavior, actions, and opportunities. If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think another negative thought again.!! Love, Light & Peace 🕉👁🌿🌙💀📿🐍🌷🔱🌀🐚🔔☁️

Bhakti means love and devotion to God - love and devotion to His Creation, with respect and care for all living beings and all of nature.


Bhakti means love and devotion to God - love and devotion to His Creation, with respect and care for all living beings and all of nature. Everyone should practice Bhakti Yoga, The path of Bhakti Yoga leads us safely and directly to the goal.
Bhakti Yoga includes the worship of God. God is everywhere. God dwells within us and all around us. It is as though we are connected to God by a fine thread - the thread of love. God is Universal love. Love and Divine Grace surround us and flow through us, but we are not conscious of this. The moment this consciousness, this Divine love, has been experienced, one never desires anything more. We then know the meaning of true love for God.
A person lacking Bhakti is like a fish without water, a bird without wings, a night without the moon and stars. All beings need love. Through it we feel protected and happy just like a child in the arms of its mother or a traveller at the end of a long, arduous journey.
There are two types of Bhakti:
Apara Bhakti - egoistic love
Para Bhakti - Universal love
A Bhakta accepts everything that happens to him as a gift of God. There is no desire or expectation, there is simply complete surrender to the will of God. This Bhakta accepts each life situation as placed before him by destiny. There is no resentment, his only Prayer is: “Let Thy will be done”.
However, prior to reaching this level of supreme love for God, our Bhakti is intermingled with egoistic thoughts. This means that we do in fact love God, but also expect something from God. Many people turn to God for help when they are troubled or in pain. Others pray for material objects, money, glory, career promotion. Yet we should always be mindful that when we depart from this earth, we must leave behind all possessions and that is why nothing here has any real or lasting value. Spiritual seekers pray for wisdom and God-Realisation. However, often we create an inner picture of God - what God is like from our point of view, how God should act - and because of this, we are not open and ready for a Divine revelation.
In the Bhakti Sutras, Sage Narada describes nine elements of Bhakti Yoga:
Satsang - good spiritual company
Hari Katha - to hear and read about God
Shraddha - Faith
Ishvara Bhajana - to sing the praises of God
Mantra Japa - Repetition of God's name
Shama Dama - Withdrawal and control of the senses with regard to worldly things
Santo ka Adar - to show honour to people who have dedicated their lives to God
Santosha - Contentment
Ishvara Pranidhana - Devotion to God
There is no spiritual path without Bhakti. If a school student dislikes a subject of study, he is barely able to complete the course. In the same way, it is only when there is love and devotion for our practice, firm adherence to our path and ever mindful of our goal, that we are able to overcome all obstacles. We cannot attain union with God, without LOVE for all living beings and devotion to God.
