“Hanuman is considered to be the embodiment of what Ayurveda calls the “three vital essences”—Prana, Tejas and Ojas.

Prana is the life force, the Air element that gives us energy, intelligence and adaptability. Tejas, the purified Fire element, gives us glowing health, strength and courage, and penetrating insight. Ojas, the essential Water element, keeps us juicy in mind, body, and heart and gives us endurance and devotion

The character of Hanuman teaches us of the unlimited power that lies unused within each one of us. Hanuman directed all his energies towards the worship of Lord Rama, and his undying devotion made him such that he became free from all physical fatigue. And Hanuman’s only desire was to go on serving Rama. Hanuman perfectly exemplifies ‘Dasyabhava’ devotion — one of the nine types of devotions — that bonds the master and the servant. His greatness lies in his complete merger with his Lord, which also formed the base of his genial qualities.”

Sharath Jois also told story…

“In the great Indian epic, The Ramayana, there is a battle between the Demon King Ravana and Hanuman. Ravana is shooting arrows at Hanuman and Hanuman says to Ravana, “you can’t kill me because I am in your heart. Shooting arrows at me is just shooting arrows at yourself.” And so this also shows that Hanuman is in all of us and if we can tap into that place within and focus on our heart (love) instead of all the greed, fighting, internal/external judgement, Hanuman comes to life and leads us on the path to freedom.”


“Unlimited inner strength can only be awakened when it is in the service of Love….When we align ourselves with that love and act in service of that love, anything is possible.”

~ Krishna Das
