Hanuman tattoos

Hanuman Hanuman the Monkey God - Hanuman, known as the Monkey God, is the Indian deity with the biggest heart. Though his face and tail are that of a monkey, the body is human and covered with white hair. He is a symbol of devotion, not only of the heart, but to learning. His qualities of intelligence and inventiveness are said to be boundless, and no challenge in the world too difficult for him to handle.

As a mischievous child, he tormented the sages at their prayers, and was punished with a curse that caused him to forget he possessed great powers. When prevailed upon by those who needed his aid, however, his strengths returned full force.

The epic known as the Ramayana recounts Hanuman's many heroic acts, including the rescue of Lord Rama's wife, Sita. She had been abducted by King Ravana who held her hostage. So devoted was our monkey god that he allowed himself to be captured by Ravana's troops so he might negotiate a settlement, and at the same time assess the king's power and weakness. When that ploy failed, he allowed himself to be recaptured, whereupon t...
