Lord Hanuman, the Monkey God and one of the most fascinating characters
in the Ramayana, personifies the true superhero-philosopher. He is Lord
Rama’s most trusted ally who embodies the virtues of a sincere devotee,
the fearless fighter who sets the city of Lanka ablaze with his burning tail,
the humble messenger who informs Mother Sita of Lord Rama’s victory
over Ravana, the noble fellow warrior who uproots Dronagiri, a mountain of
herbs, to save Lakshmana’s life. Above all, he is a perfect blend of intelligence and humility.
The Chronicles of Hanuman, an engaging and inspiring bildungsroman of
the Monkey God, is also replete with interesting folk tales, local lore about
Hanuman temples across India and Hanuman prayers, making this book
a reader’s delight.
