Consecration to Hanuman by Sun God
Pawanputra proved out to be according to his name, and was very active since childhood. Due to his over activity, the saints who were descendants of the saint Bhrigu and Angira, cursed him to forget his strength for a long time due to which he disturbed those saints. He would recover from the curse when someone will remind him of his fame. Due to the curse of the saints, Hanuman became quiet and calm. He forgot his strength. Once, he was looking at the Sun and thought that the Sun was very far, and astonished how to reach to the Sun. His mother Anjana knew that Hanuman considered it difficult to reach to the God Sun due to the curse of the saints. She said, my son, it is not difficult for you to reach God Sun. Go and obtain knowledge from Sun God. You will be all right. Hearing mother’s words, Hanuman realized his strength and in a single jump, reached the Sun. He bowed down in respect of Sun God. Seeing the calm natured Hanuman, Sun asked, “My son, how did you come here?“. Hanuman joined his both hands and requested Sun God to provide knowledge to him. Then the Sun God provided him knowledge of the Vedas. After obtaining knowledge, Hanuman bowed down at the feet of Sun God, and asked him to tell his fees. As a fee, Sun God asked Hanuman to promise to help Sugriva, the younger brother of Bali, who was born from Sun’s effect. Hanuman promised to protect Sugriva. Saying this, Hanuman returned to his parents.
