Importance of Worshipping Lord Hanuman on Tuesdays

by Subhechcha Ganguly

In Hindi, Tuesdays are referred to as Mangalvar, which means an auspicious day. As a result, on Tuesdays, people go to temples dedicated to Lord Hanuman. By worshipping him, one can attain happiness, strength, and bravery.It is believed that Lord Hanuman is a manifestation of Lord Shiva. Hanuman, the son of Kesari and Anjana, was born on a Tuesday during the full moon of the Hindu month of Chaitra. As a result, on Tuesdays, followers worship Sri Hanuman. Hanuman Jayanti would fall on a day in March or April according to the gregorian calendar.It’s interesting that  Lord Hanuman is also known as Chiranjeevi, which denotes his immortality. He still exists in some form now.

Lord Hanuman is more admired for being Shri Ram’s devoted follower and is renowned for his might and wisdom. He also goes by the name Pavan Putra since Mata Anjana received the news of his birth from the God of the Winds, who also bore Lord Shiva’s blessings.

Mata Sita and Shri Ram returned to Ayodhya after the battle with Ravan. By offering them a gesture of appreciation, they honoured everyone who helped in the struggle from their side. In recognition of Hanuman’s efforts, Mata Sita handed him the pearl necklace she was sporting. Hanuman graciously took it before tearing it. Everyone who saw Hanuman’s conduct questioned why he tampered with Sita’s gift. But his response rendered everyone stunned. No matter how priceless something may be, according to him, if Shri Rama isn’t present, it has no value. Later, to demonstrate what he meant, he tore apart his chest with his own hands to reveal a reflection of his Lord and his consort.

Any day of the week is acceptable for Hanuman worship, although Tuesdays are seen to be luckier. As a result, on Tuesdays, people go to temples dedicated to Hanuman. By worshipping him, one can gain success, tranquilly, happiness, strength, and courage.
