Vaishakh Pournima - English
Hanumanji is the bravest of the brave and the strongest of all. He protects us from all that is ill, spiritual, physical and material. He is the Rakshak Guru of our Bapu Himself. We seek Hanumant's protective kavach for our safety and security at all times.
Hanumanji, is the embodiment of the perfect devotee, the one whose devotion to His beloved Ram today defines the word devotion itself. Hanumanji is the greatest devotee of all times, and also the one, whose smaran and chintan (remembrance and contemplation) enhances our own devotion, takes us closer to our own Sadguru. The devotion of Hanumant is thus an offering to devotion itself.
It has also been said, that on this day, the various Sadgurus meet in Bharglok(heaven) and discuss about their devotees, their devotional activities over the past year and plan for their future. This day is thus important for each and every shraddhavan.
