Once in every year on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Chaitra (April - May) at sunrise, Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to worship the birth of Lord Hanuman. At some places Lord Hanuman is worshipped with five faces called the Panchamukha Hanuman. The five faces are of an eagle facing West, a boar facing North, a horse facing up, a lion facing South and one His own Hanuman facing East. The Panchamukha Hanuman has ten arms and holds as such ten weapons in each hand.

The character of Hanuman teaches us the unlimited powers that lie unused within each one of us. His undying devotion to Lord Rama made him such that he became free from all physical fatigue and Hanuman’s only desire was to go on to serving Rama. The bonding between Hanuman and Lord Rama shows the real bond between a master and a servant. His greatness lies in his complete merger with his Lord, which became the basis of his inborn qualities.
