‘Hanuman” Barack Obama’s Lucky Charm.

‘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.

Thank you for this insight on the man who could be our next President. I'm sort of surprised that he carries this, considering that he has been loudly proclaiming what a Christian he is. You'd think he'd carry a cross, or some other Christian symbol, maybe a saint's medal.

Hi Chelsea,

Its not a question of letting ya'll down, Obama has his own faith in Hanumanji wherein, he believes this idol is his lucky charm wherein, whatever he does for the country, he finds get a good help........... so think in his piont of view. Hanumanji is a Hindu God. Caste does not matter according to me, its just a matter of FAITH in God. The GOD is just ONE for EVERYONE......................*Nilesh, India*

And now Lady Gaga whose song has the name Rama in it. And Hanuman being the greatest devotee of Rama. I really need a plane ticket to go see Sai Baba in India. Can anyone spare 3 grand? I need my meditation carpets blessed.
