Lord Hanuman Kills Simhika

Tuesday is the most auspicious day to worship Lord Hanuman, the greatest devotee of Lord Sri Ram. Today, let us seek the divine Lord’s blessings by recollecting a tale of His valor.

Legend

When Lord Hanuman was flying across the sea to Lanka in search of Maa Sita, He was accosted by a number of demons who tried to kill Him. However, the Lord proved to be much stronger and intelligent than the demons and was able to successfully kill them. One such demon was Simhika who had the power to catch a flying object by just holding its shadow. When Simhika saw Lord Hanuman flying across the sea, she caught hold of His shadow in order to kill and eat Him. The demoness’ power was so great that the even the great Lord felt that some force was holding Him back. When Hanuman looked back He saw the demoness rise from the ocean floor. He immediately remembered Sugriva cautioning Him about this particular demoness and immediately shrank His size to enter her mouth. The great Lord came out of the demoness’ body by slashing her body apart. He then continued to fly to Lanka. Seeing this act of valor, all the Devas and Gods blessed Lord Hanuman.
