Mystic explanation for hanuman

hanuman painting ancient

There is a mystic, esoteric explanation to hanuman or kapindra in yoga. Hanuman got other names like vaayuputra, vaayu nandana, anjani putra, pavanaputra etc. These relate him to god air and his mother anjana devi. One yoga teacher explained this while talking about the vipasana meditation.

every man is a monkey initially with his monkey mind, uncontrolled. He has to keep his attention on his breath ( air, pavana) and continue vipasana meditation till he succeeds in controlling his mind and keeping or restricting his breath at his forehead point (bhrukuti). Then the third eye would be opened and this is called anjana, which helps to find any thing. then you become anjaneya or anjani putra from just simple monkey. By becoming vayu putra, you meditate and evolve as anjani nandana.. this is quite convincing.
