Hanuman Jayanti (हनुमान जयंती) Bhog: Purnima tithi will be observed this year from 9:19 a.m. on April 5 to 10:04 a.m. on April 6. Prayers, offerings, and rituals traditionally begin the celebrations early in the morning.
Lord Hanuman, a devoted follower of Lord Rama, once tore his chest apart to display an image of Lord Rama and Sita Maiyya in his heart, touching Lord Rama and bestowing immortality upon him.
In Sanskrit, Hanuman means “one with a deformed jaw.” According to legend, when Hanuman was hungry, he tried to eat Sun, mistaking it for a sweet fruit, and finished up with a wound in his jaw. Lord Hanuman is recognised by several other names among his worshippers, including Bajrangbali, Pavan Putra, and Anjani Putra.
The Shiv Purana depicts Lord Hanuman as an avatar of Shiva, although all other texts regard the monkey god as Vayu’s son.
Hanuman Jayanti 2023: 5 prasad items to Offer to Bajrang Bali
1. Motichoor Laddoo
This Lord Hanuman prasad item is produced of fresh boondi made of besan blended with sugar syrup, cardamom, orange food colour, chopped nuts, and a little piece of lemon. Deep-frying boondi is done with ghee or oil. Every Tuesday, many worshippers present this prasad to Lord Hanuman.
3. Chana Gud (Roasted black gram and jaggery)
Those who do not have time to prepare elaborate prasad can gift Lord Hanuman chana (black gramme) and gud (jaggery), as it is one of his favourite foods.
Because the ancient herb has immense religious importance for Hindus, basil or tulsi can also be incorporated in bhog for Lord Hanuman. When faced with difficult conditions in life, a basil necklace can be dedicated to Lord Hanuman to request protection.
5. Kesari bhaat
Kesari bhaat is a prominent Hanuman Jayanti bhog. To create it, toast cashews and raisins in ghee with cloves. Stir in the soaking rice until fully combined. Pour in some water and saffron threads. Cook the rice for 15-20 minutes, covered, and once partially cooked, add the sugar and combine thoroughly. Cook for another 15-20 minutes on low heat to finish it off, and your Kesari Bhaat is ready.
