Some people repeatedly chant the Hanuman Chalisa to get over their day-to-day difficulties and emerge victorious. It is believed that anyone who reads the Hanuman Chalisa can conquer all the evils of his world and restore some mental turmoil with peace.
Significance of Hanuman Jayanti lies in celebrating the selfless achievements and positive deeds of the epitome of devotion – Lord Hanuman; and getting inspired to soak in the virtues to uplift oneself and society as a whole. Lord Hanuman happens to be symbol of harmonious and positive co-existence of humans with Mother Nature. The Hanuman Jayanti Festival is a show of the coexistence of Nature and man--Lord Hanuman, the most incredible creature in Nature and in its many forms--human beings with monkeys, or members of the Vanara community. This celebration means a lot, particularly to bachelors, wrestlers and bodybuilders. Lord Hanuman is worshipped especially for his great devotion to Lord Rama, apart from his great strength, energy and magical powers.
Sankat Mochan Temple, the venue where Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated with religious fervor, is named so as it is believed by the Hindus that worshipping
Lord Hanuman here help them get rid of their problems. During Sankat Mochan Festival, a special religious & cultural parade or Shobha Yatra is carried out
from the Durga Temple to the Sankat Mochan Temple. Devotees flock to the temple on this occasion, apply vermilion on their foreheads and distribute laddoos
as prasad to other devotees and to the poor. Devotees of Lord Hanuman fast for the whole day to purify themselves and do penance in the hope of getting
the Lord's blessing.
