Srimate Ramanujaye Namaha

Sri Velukkudi swamigaluku Namaskaram.

Swami, I have heard in some places that Lord Hanumaan was/is an incarnation of Lord Shiva.

Is this true? If so are there shaastric evidences for the same?

It appears that Lord Hanuman did not know about Lord Rama until he met him in the forest. So how was it possible that immediately he started exhibiting such high levels of pure devotion to Lord Rama?

Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Guruve Namaha,


Dear BhagavAta,


Out of the 18 Puranas, Veda Vyasar classified these into 3 types as Sathvika Puranas (8), Rajasik Puranas (8) & Tamasik Puranas (8), and the Satvika Purana like Garuda Purana ,१६.६८ (3.16.68) says, Sri Hanuman Ji is incarnation of Vayu devata. Adiyen found this with Acharya Krupai and Swami’s Anugraham from Google Acharyan’s database.



अतो  रोचननामासौ  मरुदंशः  प्रकीर्तितः  रामावतारे  हनुमान्रामकार्यार्थसाधकः ।

स एव भीमसेनस्तु जातो भूम्यां महाबलः


मरुद (marut) in Sanskrit means AIR (Vayu)

रामावतारे (Ramaavtare) means during “Rama Avatar”

हनुमान्राम (HanumanNaama) means “with name Hanuman”

कार्यार्थसाधकः(KaaryArthaSaadhakaha) means “with determination to serve”

महाबलः (MahaBhalaha) means with lot of Power and Strength.

Overall the slokam means “Vayu devata incarnated as Sri Hanuman to render Service to Supreme BhagavAn SriRama”.



Adiyen Sri Velukkudi Krishna Dasan,

Uyya Oraey Vazhi UdayavAr ThiruvAdi,

Jai Baj Rang Bhali Ki Jai

Sita Mayya Sri Ram BhagavAn Ki jai.

Sarvam SriKrishnarpanam Asthu.
