Hanuman Jayanti Significance
On this day, devotees visit temples dedicated to Lord Hanuman and seek his blessings by applying a tilak of sinduram to their foreheads from Hanuman's murti. According to Hindu Mythology, when Hanuman found Sita applying sinduram on her forehead, he enquired about this tradition, to which Sita replied that doing so would ensure a long life for her husband, Rama. Being an ardent devotee of Shri Ram, Hanuman smeared his entire body with sinduram, thus ensuring Rama's immortality.
