Bajrang Bali Hanuman
In Sanskrit Hanu means Jaw and man means disfigured so Hanuman means disfigured jaw. No wonder, Hanuman’s jaw as a kid was disfigured by none other than Lord Indra who had used his vajra (Thunderbolt) against Bajrang Bali, who took sun as a ripped mango and even went to trace it up in the sky. It was here in the sky that Lord Indra had used his vajra, which threw Baba Bajrangi straight on the earth damaging his jaw forever.
“Bajrang" is derived from "Vajra" which is a weapon used by Indra on Hanumanji and "Bali" is derived from "Bal" which means strength. Hence, Hanumanji is also called Bajrang Bali.
Hanumanji 's real name in childhood was "Vajraang, this name in slang is called Bajrangi and the word "Bajrangi" also means orange or saffron color.
When Hanuman saw Sita applying Sindoor (Vermillion) in her hair, he asked the reason for the same. Sita replied that it was for long life and well-being of Lord Rama, her husband. Hanuman, the biggest devotee of Rama thought if a pinch of sindoor in the hair could increase the longevity of Lord Rama then why not apply on the entire body. He then applied sindoor all over his body for Rama’s long life.
Hanuman's acts of bravery, strength and devotion are recorded in the religious texts such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Agni Puran. In the Ramayan, he is called Mahaabeer (Mahaveer), great hero. He is considered to be the god of power and strength and as such is the most favoured deity of wrestlers and especially venerated by princes and warriors.
