"Maarutatulyavegam Jitendriyam
Buddhimataam Varistham,
Vaataatmajam Vaanarayoothmukhyam
Sriramdootam Saranam Prapadhye
"
 
Meaning: Lord Hanuman is the messenger of Lord Rama. His pace is as rapid as the wind and as quick as the mind. Hanuman has constrained his sense organs. He is the most intelligent among the intelligent ones. Hanuman is the son of Vayu (Pawan) and the chief of the monkey tribe. We surrender ourselves to Lord Hanuman.

In Ramayana, the great epic poem of India, Hanuman is depicted as chief of the army, with enormous strength and strategy, as an extreme loyalist to his master, and as highly devoted to the Supreme. He is also shown as an able diplomatic ambassador of a king and could conquer all difficult situations with swiftness. In the perception of the great sage Valmiki who created Ramayana, Hanuman is given the shape of a leader of monkeys to indicate the  manipulative strength of Spiritualistic tendencies of the human mind to achieve material objectives. Hanuman is considered as the heart and soul of the Ramayana. He is said to be the son of Anjani with the blessings of Vayu the god of Wind power, hence he is known as Vayu Putra, Anjani Suta. He is has the powers of Rudra, so he is known as Shankar Suvan, because of his selfless service, Bhagwan Rama himself remained permanently indebted to him throughout his life. Temples of Hanuman are found all over India even in remote villages and small towns.
