Lord Hanuman

This is why Lord Shiva became Hanuman.

Lord Shiva is considered to be the deity who is soon pleased with the worship of the devotee. Lord Shiva is also believed to appear in every age to protect his devotees.

Lord Shiva has taken 12 Rudra incarnations. Shiva Mahapurana describes many incarnations of Lord Shiva. However, very few people are aware of these incarnations of Lord Shiva.

Birth of Hanuman
In the scriptures, it is mentioned that Ramabhakta Hanuman was born on two dates. In which his first birth is considered to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva.

Because Hanuman’s mother Anjani had asked Lord Shiva to give her a Shiva as a son by doing great penance. Then on the day of Chaitra Shukla Paksha Purnima, a Human was born.

According to mythology, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Rama to end Ravana. At that time, all the deities took different incarnations to help Lord Rama. At the same time, Lord Shankara (Shiva) also took his Rudra incarnation.

There is a reason behind this that he received the gift of slavery from Vishnu. Hanuman is the 11th Rudra incarnation of Shiva. In this way, Lord Shiva also served Rama and helped him in the slaying of Ravana.

You see a picture of a trident in your hand, a moon on his head, a necklace of a snake, and a tiger’s skin around neck and you invoke Lord Shiva. The form of Lord Shiva, which is very surprising, is very interesting.

Anyone who sees his looks wonders why Lord Shiva wears such a dress. The answer to this question can be found in Shiva Purana. In which some issues related to Shiva and the tiger are connected.

According to legend, Lord Shiva once went to the forest. Wherever Shiva reached, there was a sage’s abode. The sage lived with his family in the jungle. Shivaji used to walk in the forest naked. But Shiva did not know that he was wandering in the jungle.

Thus, seeing the attractive body of Shivaji walking naked in the forest, the wives of sages became attracted towards Shiva. Then the sage left all work and the sage’s wives started following Shivaji. The sage became very tense and the sage became angry with Shiva.

But the sage did not recognize Shiva as walking naked. Then the sage thought of punishing those who walked naked. Then a big hole was made for Shivaji to set a trap. He put a tiger in that big hole while the sage wanted the tiger to eat the person who fell there.

But that did not happen. The person who had entered the hole came out wearing a tiger skin. Shivaji entered the pit, killed the tiger, and came out wearing tiger skin.

Only then did he realize that he was not an ordinary person. It is mentioned in the Puranas that Lord Shiva walked from that day wearing the skin of a tiger.
