in hinduism, hanuman (sanskrit: hanumana) is a vanara who aided rama (an avatar of vishnu) in rescuing his wife, sita, from the rakshasa king ravana. he symbolizes the pinnacle of bhakti, and is seen by some to have also been an avatar of shiva.

hanuman is more well-known as the son of vayu deva, or the wind god. hanuman epitomizes virtue, strength, humility, siddhi and courage. he is symbolized in hinduism for his unwavering dedication to righteousness, unstinting performance of entrusted duties, and unfailing talents in serving his master rama.
