When Hanuman was born, his mother could not feed him. Then he saw the sun thinking it was a fruit and leapt after it. The sun ran away but Hanuman followed it to Indra’s heaven. Indra intervened and injured Hanuman’s jaw with his thunderbolt.
Dasartha, the king of Ayodhya didn’t have a son so he was advised by holy men to perform a ceremony with which he would ask the gods to favour him with one. He was given cake of divine origin and was asked to share it with his three queens. He did so but his second queen was given the last share which angered her and she threw the cake away and a crow flew away with it into a forest. Vayu was flying past the crow and saw the cake in it’s beak, he blew hard blowing the cake out of the crows beak into Anjana’s hands. Anjana ate the cake and conceived Hanuman.Anjana was cursed into monkey form. Who is considered to be son of Vayu.
His mother realized that Hanuman needed a good education and decided that Surya, the sun should be his teacher. Surya literally means supreme light. Hanuman leapt to the sky to ask Surya to be his teacher and he refused to teach him because he has to give light and life to everything that lives on the planet. But Hanuman was willing to follow Surya everywhere and learn from everything he does which is how he got most of his knowledge.
Let me pray to the one who is swift as thought (manojavam-), the one who is more powerful than the wind (marut.tulya.vegam-), the one who has conquered his senses (jitendriyam-), the one who is supreme among all intelligent beings, the son of the wind-god (vaataatmajam-), the commander of the army of forest creatures (vaanar.yooth.mukhyam-), Let me find refuge in Lord Rama's Messenger, the incomparable Lord Hanuman. Please accept me and my prayers at your feet.
