Panchamukhi Hanuman: Mantra to Solve All Problems


Who is Panchamukhi Hanuman?

In this video post we shall talk about a special form of Sri Hanumanji Maharaj. This is a special manifestation of this great Ansha Avatara of Lord Shiva, a special manifestation of Lord Shiva who came to destroy the nether world demons Ahiravana and Mahiravana and rescue Sri Rama and Sri Lakshmana, held captive in Patala Loka. Thus this form of Hanumanji Maharaj known as the Panchamukhi Hanuman is a representation of the Tantrika manifestation of the devotee-form of Hanumanji.


Thus, anyone who is up with significant challenges posed by Karma should selflessly, with no reservations or expectations should serve this fierce form of Hanumanji with Love. This form of Hanumanji cannot tolerate hurdles posed in front of His devotees and so immediately uproots these hurdles from the path of the practitioner. If a person becomes a Bhakta of the Panchamukhi or Five Faced Hanuman, the road to liberation opens up without delay.

How did Hanumanji take the Form of Panchamukhi Hanuman

The demon Mahiravana was a great black magician and attempted to sacrifice the two great Lords, Sri Rama and Sri Lakshmana at the feet of Goddess Maha maya, totally unaware that Sri Rama is the eternal husband of that very Devi. Sri Hanumanji Maharaj had to blow out the flames of 5 lamps in five different directions with one blow, in order to conquer this dangerous magician.


Then Sri Hanumanji assumed the form of the Panchamukhi Hanuman in order to accomplish this daunting task. He accomplished freeing the two Lords and slaying the two demons.  Thus in this anecdote, Sri Hanumanji emerges as the protector of the Lord of Lords, Sri Rama and giving them complete security from the onslaught of black magic. Nothing can touch the Lord or even come close to harming them.

Panchamukhi Hanuman: The Last Resort for those attacked by Mahamaya

Yet, Sri Rama is always concerned about the glory of His devotees, even if it means showing Himself as weak when compared to His devotee. The great Lord Sri Rama, thus established Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman as a deity who could secure the life of anyone in danger, whatever dire conditions, them may be in. Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman is the last resort for a man tormented by Maha Maya.

When Sri Rama was about to be sacrificed to the Devi, Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman foiled the plans of the evil demons who represent Bad Karma or evil times. Thus Hanumanji in this form secures anybody and everybody, however bad, one’s time is. For an average, weak, uninformed soul, Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman offers security at both the physical and emotional levels.
