Shri Hanumanji does not take interest in any other work before achieving the goal: Swami Ram Bhajan Van

There is no such thing as this beautiful journey of Shri Hanuman ji, how many beautiful gems are sitting inside it. The journey has just begun. And this Leela of Shri Hanuman ji is soaking us with great mysteries. When the mountain kings sent by the sea urge him to rest, what does Shri Hanuman ji do?




‘Hanuman tehi parsa kar puni kinh pranam.

Ram Kaju Kinhe Binu Mohi Kahan Bishram.


Shri Hanuman ji does not say this little to Parvat Raj, that O Parvat Raj! How dare you stop my way. I have come out to do such a great work of Shri Ram ji. And you stopped me as soon as I left. Shri Hanuman ji does not even say that Parvat refuses the invitation of Raj. What Shri Hanuman ji does is that he does not rest on the mountain, but performs a leela filled with a very beautiful inspiration and filled with divine message. Yes! Shri Hanuman ji only gives a little touch to the mountain kingdom with his Shri Karkamalus. And bowing down they say, O mountain king! I would definitely take advantage of such an auspicious occasion. But you know that I have come out for the special work of the Lord. And I can’t even imagine rest until I finish this holy work of the Lord. Gentlemen, these words of Shri Hanuman ji are very touching. He is presenting a depiction of the nature, emotion and activities of a devotee from his life character. We must have seen many religious preachers in the world saying that rest on the path of devotion is haram. Because the path of devotion is the path of service. So what is the use of rest in service? Whereas Shri Hanuman ji’s thinking is not like this. If rest on the path of devotion would have been haraam, then surely Shri Hanuman ji would have given some solid and bitter preaching to Parvat Raj here. But Shri Hanuman ji did not do any such thing. On the contrary, they bow down to the king of mountains. and respectfully decline their request. This means that comfort is not a bad attitude. But yes, if he takes rest in life as ‘Ram’ i.e. his goal, and sticks to this instinct, then rest is definitely haram for him. Our mind always wants rest. Whose mind is such in the world, which does not want to get everything while sitting, then what can be better than this. But if you have forgotten only the ultimate goal of your life, then what will be the meaning of life. Then there will be no difference between animals and humans. This is the specialty of Shri Hanuman ji, that he never takes interest in any selfish work without breaking his goal. It is not that the path of devotion is so indifferent, that the devotee does not take any taste. Looking at the context of Shri Hanuman ji, it is not that Shri Hanuman ji is simply dull. Because when Hanumant Lal ji meets Mother Sita, then he requests the mother that, O mother, I am very hungry. Can I consume the sweet fruits of this Ashok Vatika? It simply means that the devotee also enjoys, takes pleasure in the world, but after reaching his goal. Otherwise, if there had been some other ordinary human in place of Shri Hanuman ji, and such a mountain of gold would have stood in front of him to welcome him, would he have been able to move even a few steps forward? Or leave the mountain of gold, if even a tiny particle of gold was found, then we would surely have been stuck there. Because we don’t have any goal set. ‘Where I saw Tawa Paraat, there we have spent the night’, surely the goal of such people is not Ram but rest. Along with this, the behavior of Shri Hanuman ji is also so gentle and sweet. They do not get angry at the slightest over the kingdom of the mountain, nor do they say any harsh words. On the contrary, they bow down to Parvat Raj. That is to say, if at any point of time there is a topic presented in front of the seeker, which has no relevance for you at that time, then the way of rejecting it should never be insulting or full of arrogance. Nor do you behave like Mahatmas at that time, that you start appearing lighter than necessary. And this is what Shri Hanuman ji did. The mountain bows to Raj and proceeds on his journey.
