Saturday April 4th is Hanuman Jayanti, an annual full moon celebration commemorating the birth of Hanuman, the monkey-god. Hanuman is the ultimate Bhakta and Karma Yogi, known primarily through the anicent Indian epic the Ramayana.

Hanuman is a model of selfless service, devotion, and the pranic energy that leads to liberation thru union or yoga. We'll recite the beloved Hanuman Chalisa, the 40 versed prayer an auspicious 11 times to burnish our minds from the obstacles to peace and dwell in the heart cave where this hymn naturally leads. "Having cleansed the mirror of my mind with the dust of the venerable Guru's lotus who reads 'Hanuman's Forty Couplets' achieves freed from bondage and achieves liberation."
