Lord Hanuman who is also called by various names, such as Anjaneya, Maruthi, Vayu Maindan and Ramadoothan is the worshipful Guru, and in fact, he has incarnated as the great Madhwa Saint, and the founder of Madhwa sect, Sri Madhwacharya, who is regarded as a Universal Guru. When Anjaneya was granted boons by Lord Brahma, he was declared as Guru Anjaneya, since he had learned all the Vedas, Shastras and Puranas from Lord Surya Dev. In fact, he can be compared even with Guru Brihaspati and Guru Sukracharya for his vast knowledge in all the divine subjects.

Lord Anjaneya has also acted as a wise minister to King Sugriva when he ruled the Kishkinta Kingdom. He was very clever in judging the personality of the people, and that’s why, when Vibhishana wanted to take refuge under Rama, just by seeing on his face only once, he decided that Vibhishana was a harmless person. When Sugriva delayed in searching for Ma Sita, it was Lord Anjaneya, who has pressurised him in searching for Ma Sita.

In one of the chapters of Ramanaya, Rishi Valmiki has mentioned Anjaneya as “PARAMA GURU”, the most revered Guru, “PARAMA PANDITAN”, the most learned person, “NITHYA SIRANJEEVI”, immortal for ever, “KARUNA SAGARA”, shows mercy on his devotees like the vast ocean, “SOUNDARYAN”, the most handsome, “NITHYA BRAHMACHARI”, a strict observer of celibacy.
