———————————————————————————————————–
Hanuman was born to Anjana, a female vanara, and Kesari, a male vanara, in Anjana Giri Mountain. His mother was an apsara who was born on Earth as a female vanara due to a curse. She would be redeemed from this curse on her giving birth to an incarnation of Lord Shiva, who is also known as Rudra, and endowed with the Supreme Power of exalted devotion to Bhagwan Hari. Hanuman is endowed with 28 transcendental divine opulences, with perfection in each. Anjana, along with her husband Kesari, performed intense prayers to Lord Shiva to beget Him as her Child. Pleased with their devotion, Shiva granted them their desired wish. Hence, Hanuman is also known as “Maharudra” because he was born of the boon given to Anjana by Shiva.

THE BIRTH OF SRI RAMA

From – Kamala Subramaniam’s Bhagavatham

The putrakama yaga was almost drawing to a close. Everyone was watching, all of a sudden, the fire seemed to burn with unearthly glow. Out of the fire rose a divine form. He was dark and he was clad in crimson silk. The entire yajnasala was illuminated by his presence. The king saw the divine being held in his hands a golden bowl with a silver covering. The celestial form spoke to the king in the midst of everyone. He said : “ I am a messenger from the creator Brahma. I have been commanded by the gods to hand you this vessel filled with payasa. Give it to your queens and they will bear you the sons for whom you have been aching since so many
years.”
