Evoking the Hanuman Energy


Creation exists in layers, some perceivable by our five senses, for some higher senses are required. Yet all the layers exist and the subtler or higher layers control the layers below, the creation as it appears to an ordinary person being the grossest layer, which is controlled by the subtler layers, the layer of energy, the world of ether. Every entity on earth is a reflection of energy, is influenced by and influences the world of energy and hence, has an effect on every aspect of creation – be it a dog, a monkey, a cow, a tree, stone or a human being.
The realm of energy manifests itself first in the form of a thought, then sound, then colour, and finally the five elements that constitute the bodies of the trees, animals, humans, stones, alike. The sciences of premonition, clairaudience, clairvoyance, healing, etc stem from here. Sanatan Kriya brings the various layers of a being and as a result certain higher centres open up, allowing a practitioner to perceive the various layers and aspects of the world of energy.
Today, being Hanuman Jayanti, let us delve a little deeper on the specific energy called hanuman. A manifestation of the Rudra aspect of Shiva (responsible for transformation and destruction), it is the energy dearest to Ram, who is the upholder of dharma and of creation. Hanuman is the energy which could hold in its arms the entire mountain of life-giving Sanjeevani and the energy which single-handedly put Ravan’s Lanka to fire. The shastras detail that the energy of Hanuman is present on earth in the Kaliyug,
In the realm of sound, this energy is channelized by the mantra ‘Rudra Rudra Maharudra’, in the realm of colour it manifests as kesar, and in the realm of the five elements, it takes form of a monkey. If you notice a monkey, you will find that it is an extremely intelligent animal, sensitive, fearless and also mischievous, all of which are traits of Hanuman. No wonder the monkey has been revered, not just in Bharatvarsha, but in all ancient civilisations, be it Mayans or the Greeks or the Romans. It is only now in the present Kaliyug with deterioration of man, that this vibrant animal is in a sorry state. With no trees and jungles to live and feed on, the monkeys are seen in cities, used for experimentation, run down by traffic, beaten by stones, and even killed.
Hanuman is not a myth as it is worshipped throughout the ancient world. Energies which run and subsist creation have taken birth in many forms. In the monkey form, in the Treta Yuga, of which Ramayana kaal is a part, they were very much there. Actually they are still there but in a semi dormant form, as there is no one to awaken them.
This is a trait of Hanuman’s energy that it needs to be always awakened for the desired effect, Hanuman Jayanti is a powerful day to awaken him through specific mantras. And this normally has the effect of wish-fulfillment.
