Hanuman is a central figure in the Indian epic the Ramayana and is regarded as the epitome of unfaltering devotion. He is a Vanara, one of a special race that lived in the forests and was imbued with great strength and virtue.
In this story, Rama's wife Sita has been adbucted by Ravana and is kept on the island of Lanka. Rama sends his faithful Hanuman to the rescue, but he is soon stopped in his tracks when he encounters the ocean off the south coast of India. Remembering his own powers however, Hanuman grows to immense size and flies across the ocean to Lanka. On the way he encounters all sorts of demons and tests, including a mountain that magically rises from the ocean and asks him to rest! He outwits them all in this wonderful tale of strength and devotion.
These comics are endearing to the young and old. Reading them is an inspiring and fun way to learn about India's saints and sages - and it's a lot easier than studying the Vedas! Comics are also a great way for children to learn, which is why they are an integral part of most Indian households.
