‘Hanuman” Barack Obama’s Lucky Charm
One of the lucky charms Obama carried during his presidential election campaign is a small idol of monkey God Hanuman. He got familiarized with Hanuman during his stay in Indonesia, where Hinduism is popular. Man's Faith Knows no Religious Divisions. Carolyn Sauvage-Mar, Obama's representative, received a gold-plated two-feet-high Hanuman, in New Delhi, capital of India, by a group of well-wishers to help Obama to emerge victorious!
Hanuman is the son of Vayu (Wind God), is known for his humbleness and braveness. Due to his supernatural powers, nothing is impossible for him.
Hanuman is a favorite figure all over South-East Asia and his most celebrated quality is his total devotion to his master, Lord Rama. It thus stands as the most important lesson in Hindu philosophy: absolute surrender is the secret to reach the Almighty. The oldest Hindu epic Ramayana describes the relationship between God and his devotee, which is spoken about even today as the perfect example of highest form of devotion and self-surrender.
It is customary to call out to Hanuman at all times of need and the devotee is confident that his prayer will be answered. On Saturdays and Thursdays many people keep fast in honour of Hanuman and give special offerings to him. Hanuman is believed to work miracles even today.
Hanuman is the only God not affected by the ill effects of planet Saturn. He is therefore the symbolic God for protection from Saturn.
Devotees of Hanuman are blessed with courage and wisdom.
