About the Author
I love the story of Hanuman, devoted servant of the Lord. Hanuman met with many obstacles as he flew to find Sita and reunited her with Rama, but recognizing that his mission was a divine mission, he faced them all with courage and wisdom.
As I work on my projects in
and in the world, I often meet with obstacles and take the example of Hanuman in facing them. I can recognize it all as part of my spiritual journey, connecting me to the Lord of all, within and without.
What really stood out for me in this chapter of the story is that Hanuman’s problem seemed insurmountable, just as my problems sometimes do. But I understand that sometimes the Lord is manifesting as a problem, and if I use the abilities He has equipped me with, I will find the solution to the problem.
I loved when the demoness said, as she revealed herself as the goddess, "You have used your wits.... May you achieve your goal!" I feel that if I, like Hanuman, use my abilities and have faith, I too can achieve my divine mission.
Every night, I read Hanuman's Great Leap to my grandson and he loves it. He looks forward to each new chapter. Last night he said to me: “Grandmaman, read me again the story of Shri Hanuman.”
I know that my Guru’s grace is always, in all ways, with me and my wonderful family,
Thank you, Gurumayi.
I was amazed by this tale! I felt as though I was there, as though I was soaring and landing with Hanuman and as though I was serving my Guru with the same deep devotion as he was serving Lord Rama.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for inspiring me to pursue my duties as an offering to the Lord with all my heart.
When I read, “To have this opportunity to serve his Lord was pure delight,” my heart responded, “Yes, the most wonderful of all opportunities!”
I am so grateful for this jubilant rendering of “Shri Hanuman's Great Leap.”
